For most of the book, I was just kind of thinking, "this is like the hunger games, with the X-men." I liked it OK, but I'm not sure if I'll read the rest of the series. We'll see. I'm just glad that I finished something. It's been one hell of a reading slump lately.

I woke up much too early this morning and finally finished this. It was brutal, but so good. My reading life this year has been sparse in terms of numbers, but so rich in content.

So powerful. I can't wait to read the other two. I admire the courage of the civil rights movement so much. I can't imagine...of course I can't imagine what it was like, or what it still is like for so many people of color. Books like this are a small step toward understanding, though, at least as much as I am capable of understanding.

This book often had me giggling, and often in tears. As someone who is starting the process of adoption and has had that struggle with infertility and loss, this memoir rang so true, and expanded my mind on the possibility of adopting from foster care eventually. This was a beautiful and funny meditation on becoming a mom.

Cinfhen Best of luck as you embark on your journey to motherhood 💕 3y

Holy cow, I finally finished a book this year. I can't tell if I'm in a slump, or if I just have been too busy...maybe a bit of both. This book was crazy pants, though! The art was stunning, and I most definitely want to know what happens next.

Today's bookish delivery. Starting the adoption process and want to read some books around that. If anyone has any good recommendations of fiction or non-fiction about adoption, I would love to hear about them.

This is the book that doesn't end...yes it goes on and on my friend... Now that's stuck in everyone's head. Sorry. I need someone's permission to stop reading this, or to be OK with it taking another 6 months to finish. I told myself that I would read just this until I'm done with it, except an audio book, but so many books on my shelves are calling to me!

RiotMom If you're not feeling it, take a break and come back to it! Nothing wrong with that! 3y

I was thinking today about how my #cupidgoespostal partner could possibly know what books I already have since I don't track what books I own on Goodreads and don't even really have a TBR other than books I own but haven't read. I catalog everything on LibraryThing!! www.librarything.com/catalog/jaimienoy Don't judge me. 😆I buy books much more quickly than I read them...

A bit late, but this was my year in books. There were a lot of comics and audiobooks. I actually think The Memoirs of Cleopatra was my longest book, but it was a re-read, so I think Goodreads counted it weird.

The transition between volume 4 and volume 5 was a little weird, but I'm sure it probably makes more sense in the wider context of the marvel universe. This was yet more fun. I love Kamala. She's awesome. 👍

This book was painful at times. I don't think I've ever been the direct object of the kind of unwanted attention that she talks about, but there are other ways of being objectified. And the last few chapters about her pregnancy and daughter hit me hard in the feels, so cat included to lighten the mood.

I'm just...bored. The synopsis and plot summary online make the story sound super interesting, but on audio, it's just going sooo sloooow, so I'm going to make my husband finish listening to it later and maybe we'll listen to the Hamilton soundtrack again.
