4 ⭐ Some of my favorite stories were Libba Bray and her car accident, Angie Thomas talking about how worried she was for the release of the hate you give, or (I can not remember which author) talking about their immigrant experience and having to be told as a teenager to remember they are an immigrant. This was not a book I set out with a purpose to read, other than to fill a challenge, but the idea of hope worked.

Sour Candy: A Novella | Kealan Patrick Burke

Mehso-so

This had quite nice atmosphere: there were some moments when I loved how I didn't know what was true and what wasn't.

Plot was really solid, no complains about it. But there were big holes in logic. The ending gave us a solution that didn't make sense if you ponder it a bit.

This was interesting and entertaining but didn't get me to bite my nails.

Thanks for for recommendation @WJCintron

Today I went and saw The Black Phone with my two oldest. (20 & 17) and it gave us all some scares! After we got home, I fired up the kindle so we could read the actual story from the tagged book. Both were good but for once, the movie actually really enhanced the original story. Def reccomend if you like suspense and startles.👌

BarkingMadRun Ohhhhh I haven‘t read it yet, maybe I‘ll wait to watch the movie after I read the book! 1d
KathyWheeler I read the story years ago and liked it.I remember seeing the trailer and not being interested in the movie. But for some reason I didn‘t connect it to the Joe Hill story. Now, I may have to see the movie. 1d

While we focus on books for children and adolescents, we work almost exclusively with adult patrons -- adults who apparently will stash an unfinished cookie.

This book features stories & autobiographical accounts of southern African experiences with Apartheid. It was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults around 1990.

Seven Japanese Tales | Junichiro Tanizaki

Pickpick

The tattooist is about control, exacting pain - creating works of art. After meeting a woman of formidable potential, all the power is shifted to her. He loses himself to her and becomes the subjugated. Having withstood the pain with grace, the young woman rises to become like the women of the paintings, to reach her true potential.

This was my first bit of fiction from Junichiro Tanizaki, and I was blown away, great story from beginning to end.

Cathythoughts Great review! I never read The Makioka Sisters yet ( I‘ve had it awhile) so I‘ll stack this one 👍🏻😁 (edited) 1d
Graywacke Yes, great post! A new author name to me. 1d
