My #TBR for #OwlCrateAThon #readathon is a bit ambitious, but I have plenty of catch-up reading to do.
.

?#ReadingChallenges:
.
.
? "Of Fire & Stars" is the unread #OwlCrate book I've had the longest
.
.
?"Sleepy Hallow," which was a bonus book from a past box, is the shortest unread Owl Crate book I have.

Let's see how many of these I can read in two weeks

I just realized that I posted this as a blurb instead of a review!
I cannot overstate how much I love this book. Dystopian YA with a gripping story. The pacing is perfect, the characters engaging, and the worldbuilding pulls you in to this terrifying possible future.
That's 2 books from different genres to close out this #owlcrateathon!

Despite some negatives, I really enjoyed this book! The MC was rather annoying. The world building was fascinating: bridges that change locations, rooms that grow/shrink with your emotions, and nothing was as it seems. But parts of it just left me 🤔 ⁉️ because they really made no sense, and were really clunky.

But I loved it anyway. It was like Night Circus met Wonderland in Venice. Caraval is a book that makes you question everything.

4thhouseontheleft And Can I just draw attention to the blue sparkly teardrop on the front cover! 💧💧 Lovely touch! This was my last book for the #owlcrateathon. It is also for #MountTBR. (edited) 2y

This was a light, fluffy, incredibly diverse, cute YA read. But there was enough I didn‘t like about it to knock it down from a pick, largely, the entire storyline revolving around a girl hoping for a boyfriend because she feels like the only one of her friends who hasn‘t hooked up yet.

I get it. That was 17yr old me. But a whole book with that as the plot does drag a bit for me.

Zelma I had a period where I read a ton of YA but lately rarely do. Way too much focus on relationships for my enjoyment. It‘s certainly realistic, just not what I want to read all the time. 2y
4thhouseontheleft @Zelma I usually read YA after a heavier non-fiction books. But I am trying to catch up on some of the #OwlCrate books I received last year but haven‘t read yet, so I‘m reading 3 YA in a row for the Owl Crate Readathon which is running Feb 10-23. Next up is my 3rd one, a fantasy, so getting out of the contemporary genre. 😃 2y

Just kidding, immediately after finishing Roseblood, I went straight to my shelf of unread books and pulled this one down. This'll meet another part of the challenge, reading two different genres. (The cover choice for this book is weird to me. It really doesn't look like a YA book at all. )

I loved it. I did not expect to, but I loved it.
This is my first book down for #owlcrateathon and the oldest of my unread Owlcrate books. Haven't decided which one I'll pick up next.

My next book for the #owlcrateathon is what I‘m reading this afternoon!

Trying to get my mind off the fact that our older cat, Isabel, is spending the weekend in kitty ICU for constant IV fluids because she ate something she shouldn‘t have - leaves off a Stargazer Lily, which is very toxic to cats. The family gets mini banana bread loaves because I am stress baking. 😿

kspenmoll Glad to hear your kitty is better... so scary! 2y
4thhouseontheleft @QuietlyLaura @kspenmoll Thanks! They do blood work again this morning to check kidney function. They said we did absolutely the right thing by bringing her in before she had symptoms. The toxins in lilies effect cats differently, but if we waited till symptoms appeared, it would have probably been too late to treat her effectively. 2y
