#RefugeeMC: The Girl Who Smiled Beads
#Steampunk: Perdido Street Station
#DiverseNonfiction: Born a Crime
#MCOver70: Our Souls at Night

4thhouseontheleft I read Ask Me About My Uterus for the invisible illness prompt! I have endo, so I love that there is finally a book that this frustrating disease, but I wish it had better editing, and felt a bit all over the place. 11mo
shadowspeak17 @4thhouseontheleft I totally agree. I‘d never read anything about endo before, so I thought it was great that Norman wrote about it sharing her story. It really could have used some better editing though. It certainly wasn‘t a bad read as it is, but it could have been so much better. 11mo
Cinfhen Woohoo!!! Congrats on completing all these prompts 🥳🥳🥳 11mo

I applaud Norman for sharing her story, and I really loved the first bit of this book, but it just really could have used some better editing.

Roundup of my second quarter of #Booked2018. I'm having so much fun with these prompts - I'd never have found the steampunk-title if it wasn't for this, and it's /so good!/
#Setoutdoors: Wicked Bugs
#Steampunk: Castle in the Stars
#Friendship: You're Welcome, Universe
#Floweroncover: The Belles
#RefugeeMC: Exit West
#Childhoodfavourite: Cykelmyggen Egon

On to the next one! ♥

4thhouseontheleft Did you like The Belles? I just added that one to my TBR recently! 🎉🎉🎉 on finishing the 2nd quarter! 1y
okthislooksbad @4thhouseontheleft Loved it! It has the best villain I've come across in quite some time 😄 Thanks! 1y

I‘m a huge fan of the slow burn of magical realism stories, and this one is no exception! A mystical story that reminds me of Isabel Allende‘s novels, perfect for readers who don‘t mind a drawn out story with lyrical writing but not a lot of plot. I loved the diversity and bisexual representation, which you don‘t see very often in magical realism.

Read for #MountTBR, #booked2018 #floweroncover & #pop18 #LGBT.

1st completed for #13inthree 🎉🎉

C.Perone You got me at Isabel Allende💕 Stacked! 1y
4thhouseontheleft @C.Perone Allende does it better, but you can definitely tell that the author of Wild Beauty was influenced by her! 1y

Since I had fallen behind in reading because my job has been crazy, I decided to use a graphic novel for #booked2018 #floweroncover. Happened to find this on hoopla and thought it sounded interesting. It was and it incorporates Monet's works into the story. Interesting biography. (Yes those are flowers on the lily pads.)

Ugh I‘m so sad. I have been looking forward to this book for so long. I didn‘t really see much of a correlation to Snow White and the relationships were so detached. I had hoped there would have been more tension and excitement in this book, but it just fell flat for me. #booked2018 #floweroncover

Cinfhen I bought this book purely for the cover! Now im scared to read it!! 2y
Victoriahoperose Oh no! @Cinfhen you may like it! I love magical realism and unique stories, but I just felt like this one didn‘t go deep enough? I really hope you end up enjoying it! 2y
Cinfhen Thanks, I‘m still smitten with the cover so it‘s all good! I also bought it on the discount table so I don‘t feel so bad 2y
