We get glimpses on The Odd Sisters from the other books but now it's their story being told.

What a fun introduction to Catwoman!
I've always liked Sarah J Maas so of course this book was great!
I liked that Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy teamed up too.

Just when I thought the HBO Chernobyl was real and heartbreaking.
This is the first book I've read about Chernobyl.
You hear and feel the emotions put on the page from people who were there.
I small book like this would last me a day but it lasted three.

Really enjoyed it.
Nice and likable characters.

Four spooky short stories. Of course some are better than others but Joe Hill knows how to get emotions out of complete strangers.

Lonely Planet Korea | Lonely Planet

I was at London comic con yesterday (25th May) and I saw a Korean stall and of course I brought a little book. I talked to the woman on the stall and told her my little "achievement story" and she was so impressed and said "you should be proud of yourself" it's was nice to talk to someone Korean about my story.

It was a good story with nice new characters.
Was it worth the wait... Maybe not.
But Thomas Harris comes back with a bang.

Better than the first one.
Tash being sassy and being the "big sister" nagging is awesome.
Loved those cameos.

I swear Junji Ito gets more werid with each book.
He doesn't disappoint.
The art and stories are on point like normal.
Werid and creepy with plenty of "WTF" moments.

Asha isn't the main character in this one but that doesn't mean that it isn't good.
I really enjoyed it. Reading about a different view.
Needed more dragons though.

Goodnight Mister Tom | Michelle Magorian

And this is why this book has been a favourite since childhood.
This was the first book to give me book feels and it still does.
Very touching and important, the "Slang" gets some getting used to.
A book everyone should read.

Week off so I decided to pick up a couple childhood favourites.

In the mood for a fantasy kinda day.
It's taking me 500 years to get through The Red Queen series and Truthwitch series. I am enjoying them but I dunno.
I used to struggle with the whole world building in fantasy but now I love them.
Not quite ready for Game of Thrones yet haha

Some have said this reads like a textbook. I didn't have that feeling but omg I loved it so much. The pictures brought the history to life. Also can't go wrong with dragons 🐲
