This book was simplistic in it's storytelling but complex in it's character and plot building. Leaving you feeling sorry for the characters, but also icky for feeling sorry for them. But it has a really smart message wrapped in an eerie package, before you judge someone you don't know anything about, remember it's someone else's life you don't know the inner workings of.

This book was really good. It‘s about a hacker who gets mixed up with jinn and basically has to run for his life. It was quite the journey. It was an easy read even though I know nothing about hacking or middle eastern culture. Definitely recommend.

I loved the The Curse of Jacob Tracy, and I‘m very much looking forward to book 2 late this year. This little gem is a prequel to the series, and did not disappoint. Lots of action, the beginning of the Trace/Boz friendship, monsters, spirits, Native American legends, and some old-west archeology.

A quick, fun read for my #novella choice for #ReadingWomenChallenge.

I'm really loving what Berkley is doing with romance right now! They're adorable, diverse, and oh my they are steamy! A bit more than I expected and wanted, but I was still totally invested in the characters.

Finished this audiobook today. It was actually a pretty good mystery. I didn‘t know much about it before reading it.

Gethsemane is teaching the orchestra of a boys school in Ireland. All her luggage gets stolen so she stays in a cottage no one has lived in for 25 years. Turns out it‘s haunted. Eamon is haunting the place and wants her help to discover who killed him and his wife.

I wasn't sure how I felt about this book at the beginning, but the way this book deals with the effects of trauma is really interesting.

I haven't done a check-in recently on my yearly reading challenges, and I am quite satisfied with my progress! An audiobook and two graphic novels helped bump up my numbers in a month that was extremely busy!

Also ✅ another series for #seriesread : A Song of Ice and Fire! Finally! And now I join the wait for the next book. #gameofthrones

This collection of essays is an eclectic compilation that I truly enjoyed reading. Some essays have insight into Silko‘s novels, others touch on politics, the environment, the Pueblo circular view of time, and her experiences growing up biracial. It definitely made we want to read her novels!

4thhouseontheleft @Riveted_Reader_Melissa If you can look past the bits of repetition that comes with compiling essays that were previously published in various places, it is an excellent read! 3w
