I have an acquaintance who‘s a huge name in the fantasy genre. His recs are infallible and he and his wife gave me some at a party last night. Ellen Klages and Libba Bray: their Gordon Family Saga and Diviners series, respectively; “Portable Childhoods” stories by Klages; the old book “A Black Fox Running;” and the newish “The Ten Thousand Doors of January.” #recommended #recommendedreading #tbr
Thanks so much for hosting this #bookbasketgiveaway @LaraReads ! This is a really cool idea. :)
After giving it some thought, I decided to go with The Green Glass Sea which has been a favorite of mine since middle school. So for my Green Glass Sea themed basket I would include:
-Deck of cards
-Stuffed duck and teddy bear
-Greek “shazam” stones
-Captain Marvel collage
-Jar of “junk”
-Copy of ‘The Boy Mechanic‘
For day 1 of #agameoffavorites I decided to go with Ellen Klages, author of the middle grade #historicalfiction novel The Green Glass Sea which is one of my favorite books. The bottom three books pictured are ones she recommended on The Lesbian Historic Motif Podcast as some of her favorite queer historical novels.
I loved this book as a child, and it shows. The edges are worn, the dust jacket tearing, the pages yellowed, pages creased from a time before dog-earing pages bothered me, graphite smudges on the edges from the many trips it made with me to school in my backpack, sitting on top of spilled pencil shavings. There are books that I loved as a child, but when I reread them as an adult, they just didn‘t seem as good as I remembered them ⬇️
My kinda sorta #AprilTBR. The first three on the top row I‘m currently reading. The other five are some potential reads for the month. I seriously doubt I‘ll get to all of them, and I‘ll probably end up reading something not included here, but this is what I‘m currently considering for this month. 😁👍🏽
I read this book for the first time in middle school and fell in love with it. I‘ve read it several times since then, and my liking for it hasn‘t waned. I don‘t know anyone else who‘s read this book, but I really hope that changes because it‘s fantastic. ❤️
Here's my current #libraryhaul. Looks like I haven't been doing so hot with my 2017 resolution to borrow only One. Book. At. A. Time.
