Finished this one today too. It was a quick read but a cute story. I love everything Rainbow Rowell does. This also takes place on Halloween so extra points for #scarathlon #teamslaughter @Clwojick
Finished this on audiobook today. I‘m so glad that I came back to it after bailing on it a few months ago. It was so good! Using this as part of the #scarathlon #scaryscavengerhunt for a book where a character dies. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
@Clwojick This book was so good, I immediately checked out part two, The Vanishing Stair, and started listening to it. Move this up on your TBR!
Finished this one last night, read the whole thing in two days. I liked this better than The Last Time I Lied but not as much as Final Girls. I love Sager‘s books because they are so compulsively readable and I can just fly through them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Yet another one that I started before, bailed on after a few chapters, and came back to. I‘ve listened to a good chunk of this today and will probably finish it tonight. I‘m glad I gave this one a second chance! #scarathlon @Clwojick
Finished this short GN for the #scarathlon #scaryscavengerhunt for a book that is part of a series.
I love Rick Geary‘s work. His drawing and lettering are so evocative of the Victorian era. I already know and have read about all of the cases he features in his GNs, but it‘s like reading about the case for the first time with his wonderful illustrations.
Just finished this for the #scarathlon #scaryscavengerhunt as a book that‘s over 200 pages.
I 💜 this book! I started it a month or two ago and put it down after a few chapters. I don‘t remember now what turned me off. But I picked it back up when I saw it at my library and I‘m so glad I did! Not only is the book fantastic, it‘s given me a new author that I haven‘t read before that has quite the back catalog. 🧡
The third book I finished this weekend (I‘ve been getting a lot more reading done lately thanks to my new job). This book had some good, gripping moments where I felt like I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. Unfortunately, I had the culprit figured out a little more than halfway through the book. Forced myself to finish the last 1/4 of it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book was meh. Two jurors on a murder trial have an affair during the trial while they are sequestered. I expected more from this story, expected bigger consequences, a bigger payout at the end, something. Instead, I was left with no feelings at all. Meh. ⭐️⭐️1/2
This book. Ocean Vuong picked me up out of very long reading slump, beat the crap out of me with this story, then kissed me gently on the forehead with his words and imagery. There are sentences in this book that are literally breathtaking. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have been working at my local library for four weeks now. These are all of the books that I have checked out in that time. I have another 32 on hold. I may have a slight problem. ☺️
I went to a large book sale today run by a couple nonprofit groups in my area and this was my best find. A Penguin Drop Caps copy of My Antonia! For $2! I have gazed lovingly and longingly at the web page for the Drop Caps books and dreamed of owning the whole collection. This is my first one. I audibly gasped when I recognized the spine. 😍🧡🧡🧡
My #bnbookhaul sale book haul. Three of them are for my son for his birthday. The rest are for me because I‘ve been very good and not bought any books for months. Except The Nickel Boys because how could you not? And the new Stephen King that comes out next week because I had to. And also that package that‘s coming from World of Books but *shhhh* we don‘t need to talk about that. 😁
After seven months of applying for every library job within a 30 mile radius, I was finally offered a job as a Branch Assistant at the library ten minutes from my house. I start next Thursday! I‘m so excited!
I‘m not participating in the Readathon this weekend since I worked a full day yesterday and promptly came home and took a two hour nap but I did finish rereading The Westing Game. This was one of my favorite books as a kid and it still holds up very well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
First day in our new house! Our furniture (and the rest of my family) are still in Texas so I‘m spending the day reading in my bay window seat in between cleaning and organizing the few things I brought with me.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book was excellent! Almost as good as The Silent Companions. It reminds me of Sarah Waters‘ Affinity but I liked it so much more. The ending was very satisfying. @Lisas.Library make sure you buy this sooner rather than later, especially if you liked The Silent Companions.
