I have such a strong preference for physical books that my kindle TBR gets out of control. And I have some amazing kindle books to read!!! Starting with this one for #authoramonth

Soubhiville I have this one too. Hope you like it! 8h

Hi #AuthorAMonth folks! September must be a busy month for us all, as only 2 folks have posted reviews! 😱 If you have read a VE Schwab this month and posted your review, please check your post to be sure you used the hashtag and tagged me so I can record it on my spreadsheet.

October will be Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, put in your Library hold now 😊.

ValerieAndBooks I am still waiting for the ebook hold to come in for this (edit: for Vicious) — I just couldn‘t touch the poor-condition print copy from the library anymore. I tried getting into the first of her Shades of Magic trilogy, but couldn‘t. Ebook hold just came in for this one 👉 and maybe it will do it for me for this month 🤞 (edited) 1d

I love this book. The reread was fun and I had forgotten what a badass Lila is.

Not sure if you can see it, but the library copy is water damaged throughout — at least I hope it‘s just water 🤢. Library E-book hold won‘t be available for a while, but I‘ll read the sample here. I also can switch over to the other VE Schwab I borrowed. #authoramonth

Megabooks 🤢 2w
ValerieAndBooks @Megabooks right?! This was a pick-up reserve so I didn‘t notice the damage until I got home — probably would have if I had taken it off the shelf 😒. 2w

Went to the branch in town to pick up my holds for September‘s #authoramonth, V.E. Schwab! Will I finish both this month? Will I like her— she‘s a new-to-me author.

It‘s hard to see, but the tower says Public Library near the roof and there‘s lovely stained glass windows on the main level. 😍

ValerieAndBooks @mom2bugnbee small world! That‘s the next town over 😊 2w

LauraBeth This is your library? It looks amazing! 2w
DGRachel That‘s a gorgeous building! I loved Vicious. Hope you enjoy it, too! 2w
ValerieAndBooks @DivineDiana yes, it‘s in the borough, but about 3 blocks outside the shopping/restaurant area. 2w
ValerieAndBooks @LauraBeth it‘s the one closest to me, but I admit I prefer the larger county library slightly farther away that also has easier parking. This one is definitely lovely! 2w
ValerieAndBooks @DGRachel it is definitely gorgeous! If you loved Vicious, I‘ll start that one first 😊! 2w
DGRachel It was my first book by VE Schwab and I loved it so much that I mailed my paperback copy to a friend to force her to read it and bought a matching set of hardbacks of Vicious and Vengeful. ❤️ 2w
Soubhiville What a cool building! I hope you enjoy the books. 2w
kspenmoll Beautiful library!!! 2w

"Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human."
For me this is between a so-so and a pick. It felt much like reading the novel version of a comic book. The powers of the characters were interesting and it was well written. If they ever get around to making the movie I would say that it would probably be better than the book. Undecided if I'll read book two.

Soubhiville I felt pretty much the same way about it. 2w
BooknerdsLife I feel the same! Love her other series & this book but not sure if I want to read the next one! 2w

In short story are the last lines, final execution, crucial for the success of it, and perfect example for this is story Lottery, but I have to say that majority of the stories in this collection aren‘t so effective and most of them have left me hungry, unsatisfied. Collection of very dark and atmospheric stories with interesting themes. I liked them, but I‘m not in love with them.⭐️⭐️⭐️
Few days late, but here is my contribution for #AuthorAmonth

Soubhiville I feel like this cover art is the most fitting I‘ve ever seen for this book. Also, pretty much everyone has expressed the same disappointment with the “other” stories. 3w
Simona @Soubhiville I also like this cover in Slovenian edition, creepy cover for slightly creepy stories. Yes, I scrolled through reviews and I was quite pleased that I‘m not alone 😁 although I do think that thematically stories are very good and interesting, but unfortunately they are without the last, final punch. 3w

We read a lot of Shirley Jackson in August for #AuthorAMonth!
@ValerieAndBooks is leading #AaM so far with 4, and @IndoorDame and @sudi are both close on her heels with 3 each.

Thanks for voting for this author! I‘m a fan!

My September TBR is pretty ambitious! I‘m already at least halfway through three of these though, so that helps. This stack includes one for #authoramonth, five for #BBRC, five by authors for the #TXBookFestival2020, and the #BOTMBuddyRead. I‘m not sure I‘ll get to everything, but it‘ll be fun to try!
