Here is the book I just started, it's short so I'm hoping to finish it soon. It was the only book on my shelf with star in the title 🤣🤣 and it reminds me of a past coworker who loved it because she was also homeschooled 😁 #reread but feels like my first time

5⭐! Even though there were 6 POVs we follow, it's easy to keep up with each narrator because they each have their own distinct personalities. While the story runs much slower than I'm used to, I was just really immersed in the storybuilding and the eventual #slowburn #romance. The main selling point are the girls, but really liked how interwoven everyones stories were and the concept of debts, payments, and consequences

So the NEWTs part of the #MagicalReadathon2019 is happening right now! Found out about it because @Schnoebs is participating and figured I'd double book it and do my "make up exams" and the NEWTs ??? And because I think alchemy is cool, my Wizarding career is Alchemist!

I'm going to try to only use novels for as long as I can, then manga once it's almost time to end ??

So this is the reason I even checked out Isle of Blood and Stone, which I enjoyed on its own. In this book, it sounds like we're going to follow Reyna, who had a pretty big role in book one. Except now she's of #youngadult age 👀 Let's see how this one compares! #fantasy

4.5 ⭐. This one really surprised me. There were moments where I though "oh here comes the typical #YA moment" only for it to be something unexpected. It's also slower paced but full of so much character development and worldbuilding that I didn't mind. If I had to complain, I couldn't get behind the main couple (not a fan of the girl) and #cries, why you hurt my heart?! Reads like a standalone

Went to the library recently! I'll be talking about many of these lovely #books on the #blog before the end of the month :D Most of them are for upcoming #blogtours but some have been in my #tbrpile for some time and Night Tiger is by Yangsze Choo so I just HAD to get it!

I also have a few other titles in transit from the library. After these titles, my #goodreads #reading challenge will be Complete 😤😤😤

This is Gail's debut #middlegrade #novel that follows Sab and Pepper on an adventure around #Manila that brings Sab's family understanding, growth, and reconciliation. Gail isn't afraid to talk about the harsh truths of society, creating a deeply realistic and relatable story for #filipino #readers, and #awareness to intl readers. It's rich in culture, and I love that Gail shows us both the beautiful and the tragic

If you like fantasy, beautiful art, and shounen ai (vibes), this is definitely the story for you~ It's about Teito who turns out to be the holder of the Eye of Mikael and has to flee from the Imperial Army. He finds sanctuary at the Church of Barsburg and the 7 Ghosts of God! Also has an #anime which I rated well if you can get past episode 1, lol #lohali30for30

I had suspected him for idk, revenge type feelings. For being forced to leave her, getting fired, and shunned but wow, did Not expect THAT 😮😮😮 I guess all that guilt is what had him helping Danny out?? Tho maybe he was also starting to feel threatened so that's why he butted in saying Danny wasn't well yet 🤔🤔 #amreading

Out of the series, this is prob my fav bc it really knew how to hit me in the FEELS. While the first 2 books focused more on the zombie killing, this book focused on the relationship between Cole and Ali. I was glad to see that Ali, while madly in love with Cole, wasn't afraid to cross paths with him. And I appreciated the emphasis of love between family & friends. I did think there were some convenient moments but it wasn't enough to push me away

I'm having a mindblown moment right now. If I had a physical book I'd flip back to see if what I'm remembering is right. Does the mentor have a cane?? I know they drew attention to how he stood and if the girl can timetravel who's to say he can't? That his younger self learned it from her who learned it from his older self?! #mindblown #amreading #fantasy #timetravel #thelastmagician
