This book was a fun prequel to the Warprize series... a lovely #romantsy between a human refugee named Warna and an elven lord consumed with grief while still trying to keep his people safe.

A really fun sci-fi #romantsy. Lindana is a black, Islamic, bisexual, former-soldier turner privateer captain with an amazing found family on her ship. Her love interest is Gabe, a former aristocratic spy with a secret mission who is her ex, who betrayed her and broke her heart when they were younger. Oh also, it‘s an outer space Cold War setting.

An urban fantasy set in Cleveland (my hometown!!!) featuring a witch heroine on a journey to avenge her dead friend with a werewolf-musician-biker love interest... and yet it was just... fine. I have no desire to read the next book in the series.

This was fun romance between a Mina, a competent, tall Indian-American lawyer and Hem, a sensitive Indian-American businessman. I loved the view into their families and how much respect & deference they give to each other while still having a passionate and loving relationship.

This book was a fascinating look at the Troubles and how it affected families generationally. A lot of the history was unfamiliar to me, but the pathos of the overarching story of loss is certainly universal. The narrator of the #audiobook has a lovely voice.

Blaire This sounds like a book I may need. I‘ve been procrastinating big things because of stress/anxiety about things piling up. 2mo
CoffeeK8 @Blaire I have the same problem...it talks about how if you don‘t address your stress cycle daily (by exercise, hugging loved ones, doing deep breathing, etc...) then it never get alleviated and piles up on you. 2mo
saresmoore @Blaire Same here. I‘m reading this currently and also finding it incredibly affirming and helpful—I already gifted it to my sister-in-law, as well! 2mo
Blaire @saresmoore @coffeek8 you‘ve both sold me. I‘m in a very anxious/stressful period right now and that can cause me to shut down. I‘ve skipped my daily yoga for weeks and I know it is not good. I have been doing sleep meditations which has helped some. Will buy this book. 2mo
