Pumpkin Heads | Rainbow Rowell
Pickpick

Cute book! An adorable graphic novel that I devoured in one sitting while browsing Barnes & Noble. I wish I had taken a pic of the art! A whimsical, nostalgic graphic novel about two high school seniors who are best friends at the pumpkin patch they work at, but never talk outside of work. Coming up on their last night before they go off to college, they try and make it their best Halloween ever. Hilarity ensues and ends with a sweet twist.

MrBook Great review! 2mo

I am so excited to read this one!! @TWisdom and I have been enjoying the show IMMENSELY :) It felt only fitting to give this one a go! Also, with it being fall and rainy here in the PNW, I could use some highland greenery ;)

With the Fire on High | Elizabeth Acevedo
Pickpick

I loved every second of this book!!! Emoni was such a beautiful and vibrant character that I felt her jump out of the pages and into real life. I felt her pain, her joy, her hardships and her triumphs. My only critique was that it felt a little too perfect in parts, but sometimes it's nice to see things actually work out! This concludes my #LitsyAtoZ pick for W and my "Book that should be made into a movie" for #Popsugar2019

Six of Crows was even better the second time around! This fast-paced, gripping book had surprises for me on every page. I fell harder for the characters than I did the first time and I have no issue giving this a 5/5 stars!

Mockingjay | Suzzane Collins

Mehso-so

Mockingjay was utterly devastating. This roller coaster of emotions took us on a fast-paced journey of desperation and loss as we see the gruesome reality of war and rebellion. Regardless of which side they are on, the streets ran red with the blood of the people, and every character that we came to love or really even enjoy died a gruesome death.

Despite being intentionally fast paced, the ending seemed a bit rushed to me.

Catching Fire | Suzanne Collins
Mehso-so

Catching Fire was definitely a lot slower than the first book. It focused more on the relationships between the characters and how they've changed from the first book, rather than actual plot. I wouldn't say that is a bad thing though, Katniss is definitely more fragile and vulnerable and we start to see more of a human side to her, rather than the unfeeling and emotionless character she was before.

Book 1: Finished!

I had forgotten how much I loved The Hunger Games. I got totally engrossed in the story and falling in love with Katniss and Peeta all over again.

Now on to Catching Fire :) I am reading the whole trilogy as my "H" letter for #LitsyAtoZ and "Book with 1 million ratings" for #Popsugar2019

Labyrinth Lost | Zoraida Cordova
Pickpick

This book was definitely different from anything else I have ever read. The amount of imagery that went into this book was fantastic. Alex, for me, had a lot of growth as a character and I loved that. I did find some aspects of the plot towards the end predictable and I felt the ending was rushed. However, the love interest plot twist was FANTASTIC! I will definitely be picking up the sequel.

The Hate U Give | Angie Thomas
Pickpick

OH. MY. GOD! This is an absolutely fantastic and emotional book. The writing and the depth of the characters made me feel like I was right there with Starr every step of the way. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me angry and it inspired me. Angie Thomas poured her heart and soul into it and I couldn't be more thrilled to have read it. Loved this as my "book by an author of a different ethnicity than you".

This book had been sitting on my shelf for months. I didn't wanna read it, I didn't think I would like it, and I actually was considering giving it away. Boy was I wrong!! This book gripped me from the beginning and didnt let go. The action, the betrayal, the romance, and the super cool twist kept me on my toes! I wasnt ready for it to end! Alosa is a badass main character and I LOVED her! I cant wait to read the sequel!

This book was so well written! The main character is a complex, bisexual (woohoo for representation!!) necromancer in a world that is breathtaking, interesting and unique. The plot is a rollercoaster of excitement and emotion, featuring many unique characters. This is a story of love, loss, adventure, betrayal and loyalty that is unpredictable and will leave you wanting more.

Six of Crows | Leigh Bardugo

I think I may have just found my new favorite author... I deliberately read this book slow in hopes that it would never end! Six of Crows is brilliantly written, with characters that have a rare depth to them. The plot was thrilling, with settings that were rich in culture, ceremony and lore. After I finished, I immediately put the sequel and all her other books on hold at my library!

monogamist_reader It's such a great story. So happy you are enjoying it as well 😊 2y

Holy crap this book is good... Why did I put off reading it for so long?!?! This is one of those books where you get lost in the story and it plays out like a movie in your head

monogamist_reader This book is awesome!! But I am curious about your imaginary cast!! Who will be Kaz!? 2y
BookishlyPleasant @monogamist_reader Either Matthew Daddario or G-Eazy (even though he isnt an actor). They both have that bad boy thing going on.. I can see Adelaide Kane or Morena Baccarin as Nina, Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Waylan Van Eck, the rest are still coming to me lol. 2y
BookishlyPleasant @monogamist_reader I considered Cillian Murphy as Kaz, but I figured he looked too old 2y
monogamist_reader Oh my gosh, I love your cast!! Thomas Brodie-Sangster could totally be Waylan!!! I'm not sure about Daddario as Kaz... He is too cute 😍 2y

This was a well-written, cute, fluffy book. Jack and Libby were interesting characters, each with depth and warmth and everything that makes a good character. I do think the premise was a little odd, but Niven made it work. The plot kept my attention, throwing in little bits of drama to keep it interesting

Graham's fast-paced, witty and yes, sometimes cheesy book was a joy to read. As an admittedly obsessed Gilmore Girls fan, I found myself reading this as if it was a conversation between myself and Lorelai. She writes a lot like Lorelai speaks, so it was easy to get lost in the familiar voice. I loved all the little quirks and anecdotes, especially knowing that she was as emotional filming the revival as I was watching it!

It took me FOREVER to finish this. The plot was good, the characters had quirks, fears, and emotions, all of which make a good character, but there could have been so much more depth. This book needed fleshing out badly. It had all the elements of a great read, but was flat, slow and didnt get good until the last 1/4 (which made me glad I didnt abandon it). If the sequel is anything like the last part of this book, I will definitely read it!
