I love my library so much and am immensely proud to work there. 📚💕 This week they are flying the suffragette flag to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in Michigan! On June 10th, 1919, Michigan became the second state to ratify the ammendment! How freaking awesome is that?! 😍 #librarylove

I loved this book! It was a light, fun read and I was completely drawn into the story. A wonderful summer book! ???

This book was fantastic! Finished it in two days because I could not put it down. A murder mystery that takes place at a school for mages. There's also a lot of family dynamics and flawed characters. I highly recommend this one! 📚💕 #catsoflitsy #littenkitten

JoyBlue I'm only through episode 3 (or maybe 2—I don't remember), and that's only because I refused to stop watching when DH needed a pre-hockey game nap on Tuesday. He started watching it tonight, but quickly fell asleep again. I'm never going to get through at this rate! 1w

Branwen @JoyBlue Oh noooo! 🤣😂You need to cancel everything and all plans and just binge watch the rest of it, friend! 😁 @GingerAntics I think you may be right! I'm almost done my second time through it. It's like a black hole of awesomeness! 😁💕 1w

Our teen librarian generously let me set up a pride month display! When I was 16 and first realized I was bi, the first place I went to for guidance was the library (I grew up in a small town and was afraid to confide in my family and friends). The books I found gave me validation and made me feel like I wasn't alone. I've never forgotten that feeling, and I hope teens also find our library to be a safe space where they can be themselves. 🏳️‍🌈

BookInMyHands I‘m so glad the library was a safe space for you. 🏳️‍🌈💕 2w
ravenlee Or this one? It‘s actually a middle grade with a burgeoning lesbian crush as central theme. 2w

Branwen @BookInMyHands Thank you so much! 💕 @ravenlee I have actually not heard of either of these! 😲 But they look/sound amazing! Thank you so much! I'm going to check and see if we have them! 2w
ravenlee You‘re welcome! I enjoyed them both. What I really loved about Star-Crossed is at the beginning, the main character‘s two friends are bugging her about how she HAS to like somebody, and it‘s so weird that she doesn‘t. Such a middle school thing! I hope you find them. 2w
ravenlee And Wonders has a teenage boy/boy relationship that is important but isn‘t the point, and I feel like we need more of that - characters who are gay/bi/etc. but that‘s just a part of their story. 2w
Branwen @ravenlee Yes! I totally agree! I think it's so important for young people (and everyone really) to have books like that available to them! 🤗💕 2w
MicheleinPhilly I love everything about this post. Happy Pride! 2w
Clare-Dragonfly Huzzah for libraries! 💙💜💕 2w
Chrissyreadit @ravenlee I agree- but I also prefer romance that is secondary in a story. @Branwen I think teens today have safer space. My daughter is bi and so are many of her friends. I can‘t imagine that freedom when I was a teen even in NYC where gay Pride was more common and supported. Thankful for libraries and books that support and educate. 2w

I'm not sure how I feel about this one so far!

RainyDayReading @Branwen I‘ve heard great things about his Book of the Ancestor trilogy! But I haven‘t managed to get my hands on it yet. Yeah I‘ve heard some mixed things about the Broken Empire trilogy, some people hate it and other people adore it. I guess it depends on how far along the grimdark line you want to go. I would say that for PoF at least it‘s not that bad at all. Jal just annoys me to death haha. I‘m hoping to pick up the next book soon. 😁 1mo

I should be getting some cleaning done. I should be going to the gym, or doing the laundry. Instead, I'm enjoying a huge cup of tea and my new library book that I'm super excited about! 😍💕📚 #librarylove

Chaplin and I couldn't be more excited! Dean Koontz's new book came out today! I can still remember the way I felt when I read Dean Koontz's work for the first time the summer after 8th grade. It totally blew my mind. His writing is what made me consider, for the very first time, that I wanted to be a writer. That I COULD be a writer. 🤗 His books will always hold a special place in my heart! 💕📚💕 #bookmail

Branwen @kspenmoll Thanks! 🤗 @Leftcoastzen Thank you! 💕 I agree! It's totally the best feeling in the world! @DaveGreen7777 Thanks! I know you know how much I love Dean Koontz! 😀 Didn't our buddy Mr. King name a character Koontz or something in It? *laughs* I vaguely remember that! 😂🤣 1mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen Yes! I think that was another one of our early Goodreads interactions! I called Mr. King out for naming an inept police officer in “It” Koontz, and you backed me up on that! 😂 1mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 Ahahahaha! That's right! I remember now! 😂🤣 1mo

Has anyone else read this YA fantasy series? It's one of my favorites, but I feel like I don't hear about it often. Beautiful writing, deeply fleshed out characters who are flawed yet easy to empathize with, lots of twists I didn't see coming, and the story itself is very unique. I really love it and highly recommend it! May need to do a reread soon! 💕📚

batsy Lovely covers! 1mo
BethM Great covers! 1mo
Clare-Dragonfly I‘ve never heard of it but it sounds interesting! Beautiful covers! 1mo
DaveGreen7777 Even the titles are beautiful! 😍 1mo
Branwen @batsy @BethM They really are! 😍 It's such a hidden gem of a series! @DaveGreen7777 Right?! They are! The title and cover of the first book, A Corner of White, is what made me try this series years ago! I wasn't disappointed! 🤗💕📚 1mo

"No," Rincewind replied. "Not always. Not lately. Not often."

I love this series so much! Terry Pratchett's humor gives me life! ????

Here is another fantasy series that I can't speak highly enough of. The Riyria series (Revelations and Chronicles) is full of adventure, magic, awesome characters, and best of all humor, which for me makes fantasy books all the more enjoyable! I love these books! 🤗💕📚

Melissa_J YESSSS!!! I love this series. Have you read the Legends of the First Empire series? I‘ve only read the first book, but have the next two waiting on my shelves. I took part in his Kickstarter campaigns for the Riyria books, but didn‘t take part in his latest one. 1mo
Branwen @Melissa_J I've read the first two so far, Age of Myth and Age of Swords, and I'm waiting for my library to get the next one! 😁 Those are the books that got me into his writing! Isn't he just fantastic?! That is so freaking cool that you took part in his kickstarter campaign! His story is really inspirational I think! 1mo
Melissa_J He‘s amazing, and so accessible. I recommend his books to everyone 😊 1mo

Just picked up the newest Tad Williams book, Empire of Grass, and wanted to see how pretty they all look together! 😍 I just started To Green Angel Tower, which is over a thousand pages, so I have quite a way to go before I read through all of these, but so far I'm loving these series! Tad Williams is a complete master at writing epic fantasy stories with many complex and intriguing characters. I love being lost in his words! 💕📚💕

Ashley_Nicoletto I have been seriously debating reading these. 1mo
Branwen @Ashley_Nicoletto You totally should! They're seriously incredible! 😃 1mo
