post image

#86 of my year. A quick read before tomorrow‘s book haul madness! I‘m so excited for this years book sale I saved up $80 just for books. For $5 you fill up a paper bag full of as many books as you can fit!!! That‘s 16 bags of books 😱😱😱 SIXTEEN BAGS OF BOOKS! I won‘t be able to sleep tonight lol

Howard_L Wow! That‘s a great deal 4d
Caffeinated_Reader @Howard_L they have it every year and I usually pull about 200-280 books. I‘m so excited! 4d
MrBook WOOHOO!!! You‘re gonna have fuuuun!!! Show us the magnificent bounty 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! By the way, I love this picture—the book, the holder, THOSE BOOKCASES! 🤩 4d
Caffeinated_Reader @MrBook thank you so much! It‘s my happy place hehe and I definitely will post pics. They will be going to a good home 🥰 4d
Caffeinated_Reader Dang. It‘s sad to think how public executions use to be. Like a free for all showing. This was beautifully written and gave voice to even a badly broken and beaten fist. I love the language and the emotion it conveyed. Not a bad little read! 4d

Very much enjoying this fluffy romantic #currentread. Jennifer E Smith is my go-to for realistic, cute contemporary YA. Highly recommended.

A bit odd of a beginning for me as it must pick up right after the previous book... which I have not read.

Eve of Man: Eve of Man Trilogy | Giovanna Fletcher, Tom Fletcher

Mehso-so

I REALLY wanted to like this book, because one of the authors is in my favorite band, McFly. I liked the idea of the story, but I didn‘t like the story itself. I didn‘t truly get into the story at all until about the last 40 pages...kind of a bummer.

Maurene Goo‘s modern K-pop riff on Roman Holiday charmingly captures the heart and spirit of its source. Which sometimes means trying to find modern versions of certain tropes that are more palatable than the original. Goo manages this update fairly well, but it‘s unavoidably sketchy. Still, all in all, it‘s a fun, sweet, candy-colored love letter to romantic comedies, Hong Kong, and following your dreams. 💖 ⁣

Field Notes on Love | Jennifer E. Smith

This is what she loves best about them, the way they carry each other, silently and automatically, when the other needs it.

YA Romance. Modern retelling of Roman Holiday, featuring a K-Pop star that reminds me of Britney Spears's song Lucky. Coincidentally, the name of the heroine.

Also, this was the first book from this author that I was excited to read from beginning to end. I bailed on her second book (the food truck one), and it took forever for me to get through her first (fake boyfriend trope, based on K-Drama)

Cravings. Didn't have time to go to Chinatown on the way home, so 85° will need to be a substitute. Might go to In-N-Out later this evening
