Playing with Fire | April Henry
post image
Pickpick

This was quite a bit different from most of the April Henry YA thrillers I‘ve read, but it‘s also my new favorite! It starts with a group of people trapped on a hiking trail by a recently started wildfire near Portland, Oregon. The book follows their harrowing hike away from the fire while also including flashbacks to the main character Natalia‘s personal history with trauma from a previous fire.

Viola Shipman has given us another heartwarming book filled with positive thoughts and virtual hugs.

The writing is beautiful just like the uplifting story line.

THE HEIRLOOM GARDEN has characters that will warm your heart once you get to know them.

🎧I flew through this!
The first chapters I had a bit of a time suspending belief (ladies companions with dukes and a bit of insta love feel)but once the story started rolling I was sucked in and was trying to find things to do while listening so I knew what happened next! 450 at first felt bit much, but the length was perfect. I ❤️ getting to know Viola, and so appreciated that Gracewood had flaws but none were treating others poorly

‘ as long as you keep secrets and suppress information, you are fundamentally at war with yourself. hiding your core feelings takes an enormous amount of energy, it saps your motivation to pursue worthwhile goals, and it leaves you feeling bored and shut down.‘ 5/5

How are we halfway through September?? My TBR for this month is still stacked high. Must get moving.
Listening to tagged from library also.

CuriousG The Sparrow is one of my favourites! 3w
Librariana I know! The audacity of this month to already be moving along so quickly! You do have a phenomenal TBR stack there, tho! (Sorry for all the !!! excitement) I have so many to get through myself and I want to get at least ONE bingo on my card 😭😭 3w
ChaoticMissAdventures @CuriousG I am really enjoying it, but it is seemingly to take me a long time to get through. I need to remind myself books don't need to be rushed. 3w

ChaoticMissAdventures @Librariana so many good books!! My card is a mess right now. Amazing how many books you can read and not get a bingo 😂 3w
CuriousG The first time I read The Sparrow it took me a long time and at times I considered giving up - it definitely wasn't a page turner. But I stuck with it and have read it almost yearly for the past 5 or 6 years. Not sure if you are far enough in to get this, but my dog is actually named Meelo. Lol 2w
ChaoticMissAdventures @CuriousG normally it would not be a problem but it is now a week overdue and I am only half way in. I do really enjoy it when I pick it up so I may buy it and return the library copy 2w
CuriousG I'm way too slow of a reader for library books. I stopped using the library years ago because I would never get through them and inevitability someone would have a hold on them, and by the time I could get them again I had forgotten enough I had to start from scratch (and not finish again). 🤦‍♀️ 2w

I have been wanting to read this book for a long time, and it did not disappoint! There is a really interesting blend of patient stories, explanations of therapy modalities, and opportunities for personal reflection. It really is so comprehensive for learning about the body and trauma of all kinds.

This is a beautiful romance. The heroine uses a near death experience in war to restart her life as the woman she always has known she is. Her one regret is leaving her best friend behind. She gets convinced to visit him to discover he is a mess. This begins a very slow burn romance. It really is lovely, but too long. It took me way to long to finish it, but I definitely recommend. 4⭐️

Not sure if the tagged book has been on my shelf for the absolute longest length of time, but it sure seems like it. It‘s a book about a dog, and I love dog stories, but I‘m always afraid the dog will die! 😭
So, I don‘t always read dog books in a timely manner.

Alexis Hall and regency romance, what‘s not to love? Hall‘s books have such a wonderful kindness and acceptance at their core, and it had a lot of my favorite regency tropes: friends-to-lovers, fancy parties, etc.
I guess I need to read Boyfriend Material next!
