Story Time:
Had plans to go read in the park & get groceries. Happened upon a bookstore & spent so long in there, that by the time I left, (with 2 new books in spite of my #mountTBR at home), it had started to rain. Park was out of the question, so went straight to grocery store, only to find I‘d left my phone in the bookstore. Had to walk ALL the way back there in a downpour ☹️ After that, I just said “eff it, getting ice cream”, as you do 😂

I gave this audiobook a chance and got about halfway through, but it just isn‘t interesting me. Billed as ‘Frozen‘ meets ‘The Bloody Chamber‘ I guess I was expecting something like Angela Carter, but it‘s not.

I finished Cinder, and I‘m due for a dose of dilaudid, so I‘m going to call my #24in48 there. It‘s been a trying one. As I may have mentioned once or twice, I was doing this one from a hospital bed and it is TOUGH to read when you‘re medicated, your blood sugar is too high or, worse, too low, and nurses keep interrupting you. I‘m quite proud that I managed twelve hours!

Melli Good for you. It‘s still an accomplishment 22h

These are two middle grade favorites I've discovered in recent years, a haunting, atmospheric fantasy and a contemporary that mixes humor with an accessible look at the good and bad that can come with anonymity.
@24in48 #24in48 MG/YA challenge

LibrarianRyan The bear witch is MG? I‘ve only ever seen it sold in the adult section. 1d
BookFreakOut @LibrarianRyan Thinking about it, I'd say upper middle/lower YA. Not as fully MG as City of Ghosts but significantly less intense than This Savage Song. It has a crush/a few kisses. The writing appeals to her adult fans, it has a good haunting atmosphere, but I don't recall anything content-wise to be a concern for younger readers. 1d
LibrarianRyan @BookFreakOut hummm. I‘ll have to try it out. I own most of her books. Just haven‘t read them yet. 1d

I‘ve been dying to go hiking this week, but the heat in VA is just not working with me (111 heat index!). I‘ve been so bored inside even Red‘s post-apocalyptic hiking is starting to sound fun 🤣 hoping for a break in the heat soon!!

I‘m really bad at picking favorites, but I‘m working on a ya book right now, so I‘m going with that one! It‘s slow-going because I‘m listening instead of reading, so a book that might take me two hours is taking me ten. #24in48

“Do you think I don‘t know what kind of men this world has wrought?” Red said. “Every woman knows. And those men existed before everything fell apart.”

3/5⭐ I almost DNFed it because it was so slow, but the writing was strong enough that I could tell the author had deliberately crafted a dense fairytale tone. I appreciated the in-depth main character arc of dealing with trauma (warning for rape). The relationships w/ the dogs were wonderful. (Read my full Goodreads review for pet spoilers.) However, many magical elements didn't make sense. The book is worth a read but I wouldn't pick it up again.
