I tried, but if a hero is going to be terrible I need to at least be captivated by him. Has anyone else tried it?

I started reading this around 11 last night and finished some time after midnight. I loved the insight into the film's creation, and while I haven't yet seen it, think I will get more out of the film having read the script and text. I'll probably pick this one up again.

Guuuurl. I have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING bad to say about this book. Listen, if you can, because it is the ultimate experience. Also, Phoebe doesn't know it yet, but she's about to be my next bff. She won't even have to remember my name, cause it's the same as the bff she has now. See? It was meant to be.

I never use this word but it's the only one to describe it: HAWT. Sexy, spicy, sizzling hawtness. Real characters with real problems find real love and have real hawt sexytimes. I made the mistake of reading the excerpt from the next one and now I wants it precious.

SquidgetsRoom The second one is awesome too! I read it first cause I couldn‘t find #1 lol. Now soon I‘ll be starting on book 3! 2y

Remember the distress I felt last week because the romance with the fat heroine and the fake relationship panned out? THIS WAS THE ANSWER.

I don't have time to try to enjoy this. Which is too bad, cause the plot trope is one of my favorites and the cover model actually reflects the character.

That. Was. Precious. There really do need to be more YA adaptations of Much Ado, but this one is particularly fantastic with spectacularly geeky students at a school for supernerds. I'm talking an entire text spread about Saga. It's fantastic. I look forward to seeing what else Anderson might give us.

This was my first Willis and I loved it! The writing, the giggles, the concept, and the love story combine to make a pretty awesome book. Willis has made some troublesome comments on romance, and I'm not feeling that, but dammit, this was so good.

This one doesn't come out until march, but I'm glad someone at Riverhead practically put it in my hands, else I might have just marked it "to read" and never gotten around to it. This book was beautiful and heartbreaking and uplifting altogether. There could be more words but I can't make them right now. Just, read it when you get the chance.

Dammit, now I have to read all the others.
Favorite lines include: "I'd kiss you but I don't want our beards to tangle." "You put away those groceries so hard."

The Boy Is Back | Meg Cabot
post image
Pickpick

My new practice is going to only post books when I finish them, cause the majority of the books I post at the start don't get completed.
But this one! Meg Cabot seems to have gotten her groove back after the slog/snoozefests that were Royal Wedding and Remembrance, probably because while it continued a "series", it was still a new story. And the Boy books have a fun, quick format that makes them easy to get sucked into.

LauraBrook I have the same problem, once something gets marked as "currently reading", wherever it is (here, LT, Goodreads, etc) I never get anywhere with it. I annoy myself with this! 3y
ardoomer Did you finish Remembrance???? I suffered through 200 pages before I gave up. 3y

Oh man, this was good. Sure, it has awful "slave speak" in some places and the occasional plot hole, but there wasn't a time between when I started and when I finally closed it in the end that I didn't want to be reading this book.

I must have known about this book before, having gone to SJSU and worked one floor below the titular lock, but I'm glad I rediscovered it. The book was more a historic treasure hunt than the "scientific mystery solved" but it was very interesting. Next on the Beethoven list will have to be one of the bios that were written after the science was done, to see what additional findings might have been made..:

Got dumped off the streetcar at the halfway point, and there's a lovely used bookstore right across the way. My mouth dropped open when I saw this. Rainy Days was one of my favorite WIPs when I was a DWG frequenter, and I'm honestly not sure if I finished it! #books #booksurprise #p2psthatareworthit #derbyshirewritersguildftw #austenfanficwillalwaysbemyfirstlove

It took forever, but I finally finished it. Getting through it was more curiosity and effort justification, but I can't say I really enjoyed it. There were some really great parts, and it's definitely an Important Book, but it was a little...much. #queerlit

Doing a full immersion read and listen for my #readharder science book. This is really cool because I have actually seen that lock of hair...well, the part that wasn't used for the science.
