In trying to find a morning routine I discovered these two books for #profdev / #personaldevelopment and wonder which to start with. I found the infographics on https://readingraphics.com/5am-club-vs-miracle-morning/ and though they helped to show a basic version of this, though more insight can be found in the books. Anyone read these? I also like the concept of reading 10 pages a day min of nonfiction/personal growth books. Still reflecting…

Desha I‘ve heard good things about the 5 am Club…now I‘ll have to look into Miracle Morning! 5mo

An expert teen Chinese milliner in the South finds her voice as an advice columnist in the local paper for Southerners. This book explores southern society during the suffragette movement and segregation with diverse and dynamic characters #Bildungsroman I really enjoyed this #reesesbookclub pick.

What would you do over if you could? Nora gets a chance to explore past regrets and learn more about how choices made can cause ripples, into her and everyone else‘s lives, through various paths she could have gone. This book is about #regrets & #secondchances I think it‘s an interesting choice for self-reflection too. #onceuponabookclub

One of the reviewers said it‘s like ‘Hunger Games meets The Purge‘. It starts with a teen who was coerced into pleading guilty for something she didn‘t do. Now she is trapped on an island hoping to survive long enough for them to find the real killer. In the meantime she needs to outsmart notorious assassins & has many home viewers. Can she turn the tables?

I‘ve been in a #readingslump and this #thriller was a #bookrec for the #reluctantreader

Started listening to this thriller on my commute. Definitely attention grabbing enough to enjoy it! It was recommended to me as an audiobook and I‘m giving it a listen. Small town with secrets; and a reverend, who‘s the mother of a teen, just strolled in with secrets of her own. #commuteread #commute #audiorec #audiobook #audio #bookrec #bookrecs #bookrecommendation

I'm enjoying this story! Three sisters with different gifts, but only one will survive to rule as queen. I'm intrigued to find out how it will unfold.

Nothing says creepy like thinking your child is out to get you and discovering you might be right. This was definitely a psychological thriller. I loved the different character POV so you could see the thought processes of each. The characters are not perfect but it might be less interesting if they were. Overall a creepy experience.
Life got busy but I finally finished it!

RadicalReader @CraftELibrarian love books like this one really can‘t wait for more books like this one I‘ve only gotten a few pages in and unfortunately had to return it to the library because people were waiting for it but immediately put myself back on the list for when it becomes available again 4y
CraftELibrarian @RadicalReader the quote regarding it as 'What About Kevin' meets 'Gone Girl' meets 'The Omen' by Entertainment Weekly seems on point. I might add a bit of The Orphan movie to that list after the last chapter I just read😱 4y

Took a GOT quiz and got Daenerys on it this time. GOT is on the TBR pile at the moment but what I read from it was so similar to the tv show that I think it might be nice to revisit at a later date then it will be a movie via books 😄

My #readingbuddy Thor. I gave up on reading Sea Glass today because I needed a more exciting, adventurous type of story and the main character Opal is not my favorite compared to Yelena.

CraftELibrarian @RadicalReader Thank you, absolutely! He's a little love bug 😄. His brother Loki is more independent/has more of a feral instinct; they're bonded feral kittens I adopted. They have their own personalities, and trill/coo/squeak-meow to communicate. 4y

Dive into a world of sameness yet everyone there tries to be 'beautiful' with the help of the mysterious Belles'abilities to perform miraculous changes in form, skin color, hair, even makeup. Just what price is everyone willing to pay for it? The story is intricately woven and characters mostly have some depth, although sometimes it seems as though there are forced actions/reactions. Overall I enjoyed this audiobook and world.

The Book Whisperer is one of those books that was amazing. After I read it I debated my career path to become a reading specialist or librarian. It is one of those eye-opening books where a teacher(avid reader) has her 6th grade students read 40 books a year for independent reading instead of busywork. It was a fascinating, powerful read I'd love to gush about.

So far I am trying to figure out where to start. I usually base it on how I'm feeling to select the type of book to read. I think Circe, Lumberjanes, and the Children of Blood and Bone are stong contenders this weekend though. Any recommendations?

The artwork is stunning and rich. The story is beautiful as it follows two young girls falling for each other during a time it was viewed as unacceptable and cycled to them finding each other many years later showing love is eternal. I don't usually read romance but I enjoy a well written one. I teared up at the end.

One of the books that helped get me back into reading. Dive into the world of Ixia, assassins, and magic. It was a mostly enjoyable read and I am continuing the saga to find out what happens next.

"I wondered if I should point out the inconsistency until I remember Janco could argue any point, logical or not." -Opal Pg. 14

Trying to get through the books in order but getting back to Yelena and Valek's POV is my goal; Janco is amusing too. I don't want to miss the breadcrumbs from the other stories! And this is the first book in a while that I'm picking up so here I go!
