Eek! Trying to catch up on the #ChillingPhotoChallenge! This is for Day #10 GRIM, and this is one of my favorite Megan Shepherd novels (and it would also make for a wonderful October read!).

Today‘s #colormepretty is #rainbow! I went for an LGBT+ theme for this one.
Grim Lovelies‘ main character might be straight, but there‘s a trans character and a gay character.
Passing I read for a class, but the point is brought up that it could be read as a lesbian awakening. After reading it, I would agree with that point.
Hero I read in high school and it‘s a great book about the struggles of coming out AND being a teenage superhero. 10/10
Ugh I really tried but I'm throwing it in at chapter 28. I'm so so so incredibly bored and not interested and the characters are just dull.
My friend Unity and I decided to start a book club and by that I mean we both read the same book and then talk about it. January was Grim Lovelies, and I personally enjoyed it. Again, a token, tragic gay who may or may not fall into the “bury your gays” trope (hopefully not!) and a token trans character, and a majority of the characters were cis, het, and white, but I have hopes for this series!
Reminder: post picture later
I was not very good yesterday at BNs 1/2 price sale. But it‘s hard to be good when you have a purse full of gift cards.
Wow my #sss #stuffedstockingswap package from @BookNAround another Kristen too! So many new books to read - I love that you included some of your faves and all the goodies for me and some for my doggies! I cannot wait to try all the teas, curl up under my new blanket with some hot cocoa, and use my new stocking! Thanks so much! @Avanders
Woke up early do take notes for today's Fountain of Youth book club discussion of Grim Lovelies. Megan Shepherd is skyping in! I've loved all of her books, but this is my favorite so far.
From New York Times bestselling author Megan Shepherd, Grim Lovelies is an epic and glittering fantasy. Prepare to be spellbound by the world of Grim Lovelies, where secrets have been long buried, friends can become enemies, and everything—especially humanity—comes at a price.
This was a very fast paced, thrilling read! The world building was so creative and unique, I have not read anything like this before! The writing was beautiful. Anouk was a very interesting character especially at the end. I can‘t wait a whole year for the sequel 😩 But I do highly recommend this book! It‘s a great October read and perfect for introducing urban fantasy to someone who is unfamiliar with that genre. 4.5/5 🌟
I absolutely LOVED this book!! It kicks off a new YA Fantasy set in the #CityOfDreams (#Paris naturally!). Its narrator is a beastie- an animal changed by a witch into a human servant. But Anouk is more than a maid and this fast-paced adventure takes her and her fellow beasties all over the city - encountering other witches and #Goblins too! Such fun!!! #SeptemberDanes #NewHogwartsAdventure
I've been a fan of Megan Shepherd from the beginning and this is my favorite of her books! I know it doesn't come out until October, but all the love for this book with its Beasties, Witches, Goblins and Pretties in modern day Paris. I wish I could skip summer and head right to fall!
It's #SundaysInBedWith time! What book are you hoping to spend time with today? And tag @MidnightBookGirl and @petersonks15
I'm almost done with the dark and lovely Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd and so far it's my favorite book by her. I can't wait until it publishes!
It's #FriYayIntro day, hosted by @jesshowbooks
2. Not local, but #goldenstatekiller being arrested was freaking awesome! And tomorrow is #independentbookstoreday!
3. I will cheer Dewey #Readathon peeps on, but I'm working at the bookstore all day & then going to a haunted dinner party.
4. Q. Did you know an elephant's sex organs are in its feet? A. Because when they step on you, you're screwed! (A swear word works here too).
