Ghosts of the Shadow Market | Kelly Link, Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman

Pickpick

This book is a collection of short stories set in the Shadowhunter world that center around James Carstairs/Brother Zachariah. These were really good emotional stories. My favorite story was The Land I Lost where Alec rescues then adopts Rafe. It was also one of the least depressing stories. Cassandra Clare is really good at #tearjerkers 🖤

This was a great YA romance set in the MC‘s freshman year of college. Both Penny and Sam have some work to do on themselves, but find a bond and trust in each other. Really enjoyed this! #booked2020 #thinkpink for the cover. #bbrc #teenangst #notformiddlegrade more for age of characters than content. I don‘t think that age group would connect with this very much. #readmyowndamnbooks

Cinfhen I‘m always drawn to this cover! I might need to finally pick it up💕 1w

The Inexplicable Logic of My Life | Benjamin Alire Saenz

Another gem from Saenz. In this one Sal is trying to figure himself & his new temper out while he helps his friends deal with their tragedys, his gay father is dating again, his Mima is dying of cancer & there is a letter from his mother who died when he was three. It's a very moving & engaging story. Also Sal's father, Vicente is fantastic 💙

4/5
What a sweet graphic novel about two friends who work at a pumpkin patch. I‘ve been wanting to read this after seeing Littens rave about it. Wish I read it in Fall, but no matter the season, this one can be read anytime and is super cute!!

What an extraordinary book! So many themes of love, loss and resilience, not to mention an intriguing mystery, all in one short book. An excellent piece of YA #ozfiction

It covers both #YANovelbyaPoC and #FinishinaDay for #booked2020. Can I use it for both? Also #teenangst #authenticvoice for #BBRC

SaturnDoo Nice😊 wtg knocking out some of those challenge prompts 👏👏👏 1mo
Tamra I adore that cover! 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Oh, that‘s our one request. One book, one prompt. In most other things, we‘re pretty easy. Just not this one. Thanks. 🥰 1mo

Tamra Weird and I don‘t get why publishers change titles. In Libby the book is titled, The Things She‘s Seen. Far less attractive cover too. (edited) 1mo
CarolynM @Tamra I agree, I don't get the different covers in different markets. Changing titles can be really confusing, but I suppose it might be necessary where an expression might have a quite different meaning in different countries. 1mo
Cinfhen Book sounds great 👍🏻 but what @BarbaraTheBibliophage ....sorry ☺️you can decided later on how you want to use the book 1mo
LeeRHarry I really liked this one too! 😊 And like yourself read it in one day. (edited) 1mo
CarolynM @LeeRHarry It was really hard to put down🙂 1mo

Publisher First Second has been putting out some excellent LGBTQ+ 🏳️‍🌈 content, and Bloom is no exception.

Yes, Ari can be teen angsty and whiny at times, but I can really empathize with his situation. From an immigrant Greek family that can‘t afford to send him to college, Ari struggles to find his way post-high school graduation.

A sweet, slow-burn summer romance set in a MD 🏖 town that I highly recommend! Plus ALL the baked goods! 🧁🥖

LibrarianRyan The oddest thing, I got a notice on my phone that you posted this, but when I opened the app it does not show it, or on the desk top either in my activity list. @Litsy you might want to look into this blip. 1mo
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan Hmm, that‘s weird. The Whole post, or just my comment with hashtags? The comment disappeared when I first posted it, but now I can see it again. 1mo
LibrarianRyan @4thhouseontheleft Not exactly sure. I saw you post as I was scrolling, but when I received the block notification on my phone, I didn't open it right away and when I logged it in wasn't there. It still isn't there, but the most recent tag is. 1mo
Cinfhen Weird stuff is happening on Litsy🤨I‘m showing in my notifications comments but when I go to the posts im actually not tagged @LibrarianRyan 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1mo

Boys Don't Knit | T. S. Easton

Mehso-so

Finished my first book of the new year (Knit) and started the first LGBT book club read of the year (Carry On). Boys Don‘t Knit was a fairly light read and almost made me want to take up knitting myself. The characters were interesting and I enjoyed some of the humor — not laugh out loud, but I smiled. Going to file this one into some of my reading challenges too!

LibrarianRyan I agree. I liked this book. It wasn't excellent, but it was fun. There is a sequel about his sister called Girls Don't Fight I believe
1mo
Shakespearience @LibrarianRyan there is also a sequel about him going to New York (a prize he won from the end of the book). Not sure I will read the sequels, didn‘t really capture my interest enough to continue necessarily. 1mo
LibrarianRyan @Shakespearience Oh yeah. Forgot about that one. I had no desire to read the rest either. 1mo
Cinfhen Yay for knocking off some prompt challenges 🧡 1mo
