A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara
post image
Pickpick

Hands down the most impactful book that I have read in a very long time, if not ever. Trust me and don‘t let tragedy scare you away from reading this one, there is a lot of beauty, love, and hope in “a Little Life”, too.

“And so I try to be kind to everything I see, and in everything I see, I see him”

TrishB Great review, it had a big impact on me too! 9mo

This weeks read. Finishing up the An Ember In The Ashes series. Halfway point on book 3 and I can not recommend this series enough already. Rating for Book 1 & 2- ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

You know I had to. Now, do I finish it now or wait a little? I survived the wait from the release of empire of storms to kingdom of ash in the throne of glass series and if this ends in a cliff hanger I‘m not sure my heart can survive that again 😂😬🤞

Try | Ella Frank
post image
Pickpick

Ella Frank is quickly becoming one of my fav authors. “Try” was the first book of hers I read but The Temptation series is like crack so I rushed through it at record pace. The series follows Logan and Tate and their relationship during which Logan battles his fear of love and commitment and Tate struggles with his sexuality and coming out. I fell in love with both characters and think they‘re perfectly flawed in every way.

Mehso-so

Thoughts after finishing this series:
1. The characters will drive you absolutely insane. Especially Kat 🤦‍♀️ (seriously though, Kat. How many times do you need to repeat the same bs? You‘re stressing us out!)
2. You will binge read the entire series despite thought #1
3. Blake deserved better 😬😩 ( he was still a douche canoe though)
4. Strong start to the series, but I found the final book lacking a little. Rating: 3.5-4 stars ⭐️

Zodiac Academy: Ruthless Fae: An Academy Bullymance | Susanne Valenti, Caroline Peckham

I read this entire series in a week and it‘s my new addiction. Unpopular opinion: I love Caleb and Seth so much 🥺🥺 who else has read and what are your predictions for book 7?!

Disclaimer: There are some editing errors in the books, but I didn‘t mind them too much. Also pay attention to trigger warnings- there is abuse and bullying and gets dark for a little while. Read on and it‘s worth it, I promise !

Great illustrated addition to The Folk of the Air series focusing on High King Cardan. Bonus: It will look pretty on my bookshelf ❤️

Kingdom of Shadow and Light | Karen Marie Moning

Well, that‘s all. Macs adventure has officially come to an end 😞

1. I‘m happy with the ending that love and kindness prevailed, but also low key disappointed that Cruce was so easy to defeat instead of going out in an epic way (or miraculously change his evil ways and become an ally.)
2. Hardly any Lor appearances 😢 We are introduced to new characters though.
3. The Nine are still a mystery. (WTF are they!?)
4. Rae is precious AF 🥰🥺

Started this tonight and y‘all…idk if I can read on and get past this first chapter. Are Mac and Barron‘s broken up!? Somebody talk me off the ledge I‘m not sure if I‘m brave enough to continue reading *deep breaths*

50% Update: other than the major bad vibes prologue (worst one ever IMO) I‘m enjoying KOSAL so far. Hoping it picks up pace fast. The villain in me is THRIVING that Cruce is back in the picture. Hello daddy 👀

JELEIGH Ok I moved past my fears. Christian needs to get laid 🤣😅 poor lad 1y
JELEIGH I m dead. He put Mac‘s lookalike IN A GUINESS BOTTLE 🤣 1y

High Voltage | Karen Marie Moning

Like “Iced” High Voltage is told in Dani‘s point of view.
1. Pretty much everything is evolving becoming super powered except for humans
2. The ship we‘ve all been waiting for finally surfaces….. along with a lot of emotions and a huge surprise 😱😰
3. Christian is crossed off my shit list for now. I‘m becoming fond of the lad.
4. The fairies are too quiet. Shits def about to hit the fan. Grabbing lots of snacks before #11.

July reading recap! (Sorry I‘m always late in life) July was a big one for me. I broke my foot when an AC unit fell out of a window so I spent most of my time lounging around, eating edibles, and reading. I seem to be reading mostly series in 2021 and I am here for it! finished From Blood and Ash, ACOTAR, and the folk of the air, made progress in Outlander, and started the Fever series. (I am loving so far!) What did you read?

ErinSueMreads I love everything about this post except the broken foot 1y
JELEIGH @ErinSueMreads lol thank you ! Not going to lie though, it has been kind of nice not having to move around 😅😂 1y
ErinSueMreads thats fair. I almost commented that I even loved the broken foot because of how much you have gotten to read lol 1y

“Now I stood with him again upon the summit of life, and could not contemplate descent”

1. I just got knocked out by those stubborn scot traits coming out in full force.
2. Ian is the best character and you can‘t tell me otherwise. him and his wolf are perfect in every way.
3. Brianna is back on her BS. I can‘t w her rn.
4. I just hope Lord John Grey finds the love of his life and happiness bc he deserves nothing less

So I let him lead me into the swift dance, spinning and tilting me, people gathering to cheer and clap. Dance after dance after dance, until the sweat was running down my back as I worked to keep up, keep that smile on my face, to remember to laugh when my hands were within strangling distance of his throat

I read the The Clan of the Cave Bear and the entire series as a teenager, and now, as a 32 year old, I just finished reading them again. A must read,timeless series. 4 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

BarbaraBB I loved them too in the 90s! 1y
JELEIGH @BarbaraBB I am so glad I reread them, they‘re even better the second time. Although the repetition can get annoying, when the author repeats things for the millionth time (I knew to scan over those parts this time) there was a lot that I didn‘t remember, or was probably too young to understand fully as a teen 1y

Who can relate? One of my favorite things about this author is his way with words, his ability to see all of society. He writes in a way we all can relate to.
