Already almost halfway through this one and it‘s a lot spicier than I expected. I love it!

essayareayaitch Right? I was not expecting all the sex scenes. Still enjoyed it, can't wait until I get a chance to start the sequel 6h
MaggieCarr @essayareayaitch the Bride Test is just as good, if not better. 5h

I admit that I picked up this book because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about...Now I get it! I absolutely adored this story! 5 ⭐️

My friend Sara let me borrow Tracey Garvis Graves's The Girl He Used to Know after posting a fabulous review of the book on her blog (check it out here: https://buff.ly/2WA61tf). I agree with *almost* all of her review: the relationship between Annika and Jonathan is compelling and believable, (continued in comments)

Unabridged and Graves's decision to alternate both perspectives and timelines worked beautifully to help us understand each character and the complex evolution of their relationship. I do, however, have some mixed feelings about the twist that my friend references. No spoilers here, but if you want to talk about the twist, DM me! I'd love to know what you think. 2d

I'm really loving what Berkley is doing with romance right now! They're adorable, diverse, and oh my they are steamy! A bit more than I expected and wanted, but I was still totally invested in the characters.

#librarian #autism #mom #bookseller friends - please help! I have a 17 year old autistic son who hates reading, but has to do 20 minutes a day over the summer for school. His reading comprehension skills are very low and he only likes the Wimpy Kid books. We‘ve tried Big Nate, he wasn‘t a fan. He‘s huge into Nintendo. Any suggestions? #HELP #litsyloveslibraries

Palimpsest Percy Jackson? Fablehaven? I know these are more fantasy based and not exactly like Nintendo games. Although there are some Nintendo comics if that counts. Nintendo comic systems and I think there are Zelda comics if you choose to google them. 2d
Hoopiefoot Not Nintendo related but my nephew who doesn‘t like reading but really got into the Dragon Masters books. 2d

I don‘t read as many books about autism as a mom of a kid on the spectrum probably should. But I‘d like to more regularly read books BY people with autism, because - besides being inherently important because #ownvoices - they tend to have the tone and perspectives that I find most valuable. This is a great one - the memoir of a brilliant, successful journalist diagnosed as an adult. Insightful, well-written, and entertaining.

riversong153 Nice cover! 3d
Christine @riversong153 Agreed! 🙂 3d
Owlizabeth I‘ve got two boys on the spectrum and I‘m always looking for #ownvoices books - stacked!! 2d

I finished reading this today. TGG did an exceptional job of writing a female character on the spectrum. I recognized myself in Annika many times. I even told my husband that reading this book was like having a mirror held up to me. TGG wrote Annika‘s character with kindness and compassion and with what seemed to me to be a deep understanding of both the challenges and the quirks of life on the spectrum. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!!

This book RF book offers insight about what it is like when someone has autism. It is a great way to show perspective. It can open the door to have conversations about autism and inclusion. I would use this as a RA in lower grades and a LC in older grades. #UCFSU19 Newberry Honor & Schneider Family Book Award

KDrake I would like to read this book myself to gain more insight & knowledge on what it truly is like for someone with autism. There are many people with autism and it's important for educators to be aware of this disorder. 2d
