A Noise Downstairs | Linwood Barclay
post image

I wanted a change of pace from all of the non-fiction I have been reading recently & I was not disappointed. I found myself skimming through the middle, but the short chapters make it easy to pick up and set down, & the fast-paced story telling kept me guessing (incorrectly) until the end. I was skeptical at first that this would be your typical who-done-it story, but was delightfully surprised in the end. 3/5 stars.

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
post image

If you enjoy an intimate glimpse into an unconventional childhood & a heroine who overcomes a number of life-changing external & conflicts, Westover‘s “Educated” is a must read. Westover‘s usage of diary entries to counter the memories she has does an excellent job of showing the complexities of human memory & how easy it is to edit painful memories as self-defense against traumatic incidents. 📖

Vampire Academy | Richelle Mead
post image

#WCW was a hard pick for me because I LOVE a well-written strong female character so I had a lot to choose from but I decided on an oldie (for me...in teen years). Rose is an awesome friend, a kick-ass fighter, and has a strong personal moral compass. She can be over/confident and she may not always make the best decisions but, in the end, she almost always puts herself and her feelings second. #TRW2017 #WomanCrushWednesday

TaylorMay Lol this cover always looks like Angelina Jolie 2y
queerbookreader Not sure if you've checked these out but she made the first three into graphic novels too 2y
MarriedtoMrT @TaylorMay She does! Also, I always thought that piece of hair looked funny on the side of her face. 2y

MarriedtoMrT @thequeerspiderwoman I think I was aware of them but haven‘t ever checked them out. I‘ll order the first from the library! 2y
Chachic I remember reading the first three books in this series when I was younger! 2y
EchoLogical @MarriedtoMrT Have you watched the movie? I saw a preview for it before it was released years ago and it completely turned me off from the books. 😲 2y
MarriedtoMrT @EchoLogical I tried but the first 10 minutes or so were awful and I couldn‘t watch the rest. The book is definitely better. 2y
TaylorMay Agreed. Lol I didn't hate the movie but the books are SOO much better. The movie made them roo lighthearted almost campy. 2y
MarriedtoMrT @Chachic The first three were some of the best. I struggled with the later ones but did finish the whole series eventually. 2y
LibrarianJen I absolutely LOVED this series! 2y

Ruin and Rising | Leigh Bardugo
post image

#WomanCrushWednesday belongs to the amazing Leigh Bardugo! I'm obsessed with her Grishaverse. It contains the perfect combination of diverse and interesting characters and wondrous world-building. I highly recommend her books. If magic isn't your thing, maybe try her latest book 👇

EchoLogical @Mommamanzi She's so awesome. Her story telling is fantastic and she seems like such a cool person, in general... At least on Facebook. Lol 2y
EchoLogical @AmandaL Have you read Crooked Kingdom yet? If not, let me know when you do. I still haven't recovered. 😢 2y
AmandaL Oh man! It is on my coffee table waiting to be read. I'm going to have to brace myself now. 2y
EchoLogical @AmandaL Yes, brace yourself. It's good but also heart breaking or at least I thought so. Lol 2y
ScarletQuill I've had six of crows on my shelf for ages, waiting to be mentally ready to dive in... 2y
EchoLogical @ScarletQuill I understand! Lol. 2y
