This was a great book on growing plants and how to connect with them. I will suggest that I listened to the audiobook which was good but the print or ebook version might be more helpful 🪴

I saw tons of mixed reviews for this one when it came out last year, so I was a little surprised when I ended up really liking it. I think this is the third alternate history feminist western I‘ve really dug in the last few years. Who knew that was even a genre? I‘ll have to be on the lookout for more. #PopSugar2022 #Booked2022 #AboutANonPatriarchalSocietyorEcoFeministNovel #BBRC Adult Alternate History #LGBTQBookBingo #F/MLove

The last MG graphic novel for #LMPC Group A was fabulous! Very experiential. No page numbers or right angled panels… I found this to be a slow read, but a completely immersive one. The art and text blended surprisingly well, and I could feel myself there with the characters and see everything they were doing around me. For me this was a 5 ⭐️ read even though I found the storyline fun but not remarkable, just because the characters were so bright.

I couldn‘t put this one down and I think it‘s going to stay with me for a long time. Lake managed to create a vivid fantasy world, but use such of the moment language that the fantasy blended with today‘s queer community, so it was almost like our world existed within the fantasy world. #PopSugar2022 #OwnVoicesSFF #BBRC Yeah Baby Bio Punk #LGBTQBookBingo #TransAuthor @LibrarianRyan @Kenyazero

Kenyazero Very much looking forward to reading this one. It sounds like you had a fun time with it! 2d

#HolidayRomance #BBRC @LibrarianRyan the awkward teen romance - realistic and fun, but I don't think I want to read anymore of Dash and Lily.

Scochrane26 I haven‘t read the book, but I liked the Netflix series. 2d
LibrarianRyan I agree with sochrane. I haven't read the book, but the series was cute. I have not read a Levithan book since a bad run in with the author years ago. Him and John Green were presenting together and talk about being a$$H*!3$. 2d

This was fabulous! I have only the most basic understanding of chess, and I doubt I would have needed even that to understand or appreciate this. Many chess stories follow similar themes like a child grows up and realizes they‘re no longer a prodigy , or a woman in a man‘s world… I think I fell in love with this story because at its heart it‘s not about one simple thing that can be distilled down to a single sentence.

Cinfhen I read this last year and was amazed at how gripping the story was!!! Then I watched the series. Equally compelling!!! Awesome pick 3d
IndoorDame @Cinfhen I‘m definitely looking forward to watching the series! 3d
LibrarianRyan @IndoorDame I loved the series and the actress did a great job. 2d

Combined #BookReport and #WeeklyForecast :

This past week was not the greatest week at work, so less time for reading. But, I did finish one book and made progress in others, so that‘s a win! And, I read quite a few for #BBRC .

I wanted to better organize my upcoming readings, so I have a “top of the stack” category. This may just help me focus on the books I have to read for various reasons - holds, book clubs, discussions. We‘ll see!

Cinfhen Great list and I like your system 🤓 3d

I wasn‘t sure what to expect from the original version. I‘m not surprised that it‘s a bit heavy handed and moralistic. I was pleasantly surprised by how funny this was, it would make a good play. Overall I‘m a little underwhelmed. #ChildrensClassicRead2022 @TheBookHippie #BBRC Middle Grade Anthropomorphic Published Before 2010 @LibrarianRyan

LibrarianRyan I fell that way about most classics that have been Disneyized. They seem very different from what someone grew up with. I made it a point when I still worked with children that each year we would read a retelling, and an original. We never got to Pinocchio. I tried to put in on the Read for a Lifetime list because of the new movie. I might try that again since the movie got pushed. 2d

I flew through this month‘s #LMPBC Group A pick. Phenomenal artwork! This one has a lot to say, and it‘s geared perfectly to MG which isn‘t always an easy balance for authors to find with tough topics. #LGBTGBookBingo #AnimalFriend #BBRC Middle Grade Western

@LibrarianRyan the books for this round seem to have stacked up, so I‘m going to wait and read Beetle & the Hollowbones too before I drop this in the mail.

WanderingBookaneer @LibrarianRyan : I haven‘t received any books this month. I have read this one (my pick), Lowriders in Space, and Beetle & the Hollowbones. What is the fourth book? 3d
LibrarianRyan @WanderingBookaneer animals. And I have only had it a week. It will get mailed this week though. I‘ll try to finish it today. You are actually ahead. As for our other LMPBC, I have not received any of the books. 3d
WanderingBookaneer @LibrarianRyan : No rush. I just wasn‘t sure. Also 😳 about other groups. My poetry group is a bit of a disaster this round. I‘ve only received one book! 2d

A cute #MiddleGrade book about a boy named Roan who wants to go to Pilot School but instead ends up at the Jedi Academy. He doesn't know how to use the Force and its a bit Harry Potter but set in a Galaxy Far Far Away.
