It's been awhile since a book grabbed me so hard as this one did. I could not put it down! This feminist reimagining of classic fairy tale tropes was such a powerful musing on what its like to be a woman in a man's world - but with dragons!

Starting this while I do some #audiocooking during the kids‘ nap time. I‘ve been craving some Italian wedding soup - although I cheated and bought frozen meatballs

I didn't hate this book but I didn't love it either. I am on the fence... it's a tough read. I am going to have to sit with my feelings about this book for a while, but for now I am giving it ⭐⭐⭐

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book has shaken me to my CORE. It was so bizarre, super uncomfortable to read and a total jab at the society we live in today. I flew through all 400 pages in two days and that ending... 🤬

As a CW this book spends a good deal of time talking about eating disorders/body dysmorphia and suicide. I would not recommend this book to people who are easily triggered by these topics because it is a very dark and heavy element of the book.

Listened on audio for a little over an hour or so, it‘s not holding my attention and I have a HUGE stack...maybe I‘ll return to it some other time.

The point of it all is to love friends completely and utterly, at their best and worst, and to love more than just the good things. It's about showing that you're willing to accept them for whatever they are, that they should not feel insecure or self-conscious in your presence... (from a piece by Arka Pain)

Wow! Read this for a work training on Monday. This one totally took me by surprise! It‘s YA fantasy, but DEFINITELY mature YA as there were LOT of triggers and mature themes throughout the story. Basically a prince slays a dragon to become king as tradition entails, is horrible to “his damsel” but the ending is nothing like I expected! This will make a great discussion with my coworkers in the car next week!
