I enjoyed this sequel of the Snow White and Evil Queen retelling much more than Dao‘s first book. The MC, Princess Jade, was much more relatable than the Empress (obviously). And, I really liked all the folklore in here, which reminded me of the ones my mom read to me as a child.

#TeenAngst: Middle of a series (technically, this is the end but hope it still works!)


LibrarianRyan Still works for me. 23h

This is a dragon (who look like dinosaurs) fantasy about a kingdom where the princess daughter has to marry and consummate the marriage to her father in order to pass power to the next ruler. Uuummmmm UGHHHHHH.

I will not be recommending this to friends, however, the artwork was amazing, and I can not wait to see what the author comes up with next.

Official Wrap-up for the #MiddleGradeMadeEasy portion of #BBRC! These were all solid picks that I really enjoyed, with the exception of Heidi. I'm hoping to read the rest of the Percy Jackson series over winter break.

On to #TeenAngst...highly appropriate as we have our fair share of early teen angst in my home these days! 😂


LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. Congrats. 6d
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan Thanks! @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I did too! Maya and I both read it in August, it was her summer reading assignment. 6d

I absolutely loved this book. This coming of age story of Ari, who really embodies #TeenAngst who meets Dante at the local pool. Dante teaches him how to swim and they quickly become friends 💙
#BBRC Saga Approved @LibrarianRyan

I really enjoyed this! It was a fun and entertaining read, I can see why kids love this series. I‘ll definitely be reading the others soon.

And this fulfills my last prompt for the #MGME portion of #BBRC (cover change mid-series). I‘ll be updating my google form tomorrow, on to #teenangst!

#pop19 1 mil+ reviews on GR

CarolynM I was wondering what to choose for the cover change prompt. I might give this one a go too🙂 2w
Blh87 Such a good series! The Heroes of Olympus series that followed this series was also SO good! 2w
LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. @CarolynM there are a bunch of suggestion on my time line under #coverchangemidseries (I think ) 2w

veritysalter Ah a fellow lover of “crackle TV”!! 🔥🔥🔥 I use it in my garden room that doesn‘t have a fire, the best noise to read to. 2w
4thhouseontheleft @veritysalter 😂😂 YesX I love the sound! We actually have a gas fireplace in this room, but sometimes I want the sound without the heat. 🔥 2w
veritysalter @4thhouseontheleft Best thing on YouTube, it gives off the cosy vibes, with a book, a blanket and a warm drink (dog or cat optional) - heaven. Happy reading 📖 xx 2w

Nothing like a book in bed/Sunday read. This was “leftover” from the #Scarathlon meaning I started it with the intent to finish in October but that didn‘t happen. Still, it was an okay read. Babysitters and witches and felt almost like Buffy fanfic. Not sure if I will pick up the sequel...but still. Oh an I get to use it for #bbrc #teenangst at least.

LibrarianRyan Cool. Lots of people are rating it soso 2w

I don‘t plan on reading all of these, but this is my stack I am choosing from for #nonfictionNovember #NFNov

I‘m balancing this with my remaining prompts for #pop19, delving into #teenangst for #bbrc, and hopefully reading a few of the books nominated in this year‘s GR Awards before voting ends (nominees will be announced on Nov 5).

I‘d say that‘s quite a list for the month.

kspenmoll I never finished John Adams although I was learning so much. Maybe I should go back to it! Thanks for reminder!!!! 2w
4thhouseontheleft @kspenmoll I have a life goal of reading a book about each President. So far, I've only read Washington by Ron Chernow (and also his Hamilton book). I figured it's time to move on to POTUS # 2. 😂 2w
4thhouseontheleft @kspenmoll It doesn't help that now, every time I think of John Adams, I think of the King George song from Hamilton....John Adams?! I know him! That can't be, that's that little guy that spoke to me... 😂 😂 🎶 2w

Well, Emily Lloyd-Jones, you‘ve done it. You have written a zombie novel that I actually really liked. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

I hate 🧟‍♂️. HATE them. I avoided the Walking Dead like a plague. But a medieval female gravedigger, a young man struggling with chronic pain, and a zombie goat won me over. 🐐

#bbrc #teenangst : new in 2019-2020

Scochrane26 I hate zombies, too. The only zombie media I‘ve liked is izombie & even then, I didn‘t like certain parts of the show. 3w
