Sometimes, it‘s nice to sink into some #historicalromance 😍❤️ #lightreading #love #juliaquinn #rokesby

theresidentromantic I love her other series! I've never read the bridgertons, but she is such a sweet author, her books are so sincere. Enjoy!! 2y
Kallik93 @theresidentromantic thank you!!! Yeah this is the first in her Rokesby series which I think stems from the Bridgertons series which I haven‘t read yet. BUT! I went to a used bookstore this morning and snagged the first three, so soon they will be under my belt 😁😁😁👌🏻I think my favorite historical romance series is the Wallflower series by Lisa Kleypas. 2y
theresidentromantic I couldn't get into Lisa Kleypas! I tried, but something about her writing just doesn't sit with me. I adore the McKenzies by Jennifer Ashley ❤ 2y

While the economic side that this book brings up is way more complicated than can be really truly portrayed in a graphic novel like this, it brings it to the readers attention, which I think is really important. Anda gains so much confidence in herself and also learns to stick up for herself and others. Loved it! Also, #jenwang handles the art so well :D

Library haul today for my upcoming YouTube video: Four Picture Books to Read as an Adult 😁 #jonklassen #corinnaluyken #libraryhaul What picture books do you love as an adult??

BekahB I LOVE Jon Klassen‘s books! They always make me laugh. 😄 2y
Kallik93 @BekahB aren‘t they hilarious?? I love unspoken thoughts of the characters that tell more of the story than the actual words do. And the characters‘ eyes!! 2y

Kallik93 @mabell that looks cute! 2y
monalyisha Do I have to consider if kids would like them, too? If so, that‘s a different list. 😉 There are some picture books that I find gorgeous & poignant but that I think kids might find boring. 2y
monalyisha P.S. I do also love Jon Klassen! He‘s part of the cutie/hottie children‘s book author gang (also joined by Dallas Clayton, Kevin Sherry, Oliver Jeffers, Mac Barnett, Ben Clanton... the list goes on! 😍) 2y
Kallik93 @monalyisha there are a lot of books that I feel are more for the parents than the kids! 2y
monalyisha @Kallik93 One of my favorite picture books that I never hear/see mentioned (that I think is more for the grown crowd) is “The Boy Who Grew Flowers.” (edited) 2y
monalyisha Another (more well-known) one is “The Red Wolf” by Margaret Shannon. 2y
Kallik93 @monalyisha I will look those up!!! 2y
monalyisha A couple more! This one‘s great as an alternative to “Oh, The Places You‘ll Go!” as a graduation gift. 2y
monalyisha Same thing (grad gift). So touching/wise. I may have teared up. (I may tear up easily). 2y
monalyisha Favorite authors for adults AND littles are: Mo Willems (obvi), Sarah Weeks, David Ezra Stein, Kate Beaton, & all of the talented hotties listed above. 😉 2y

Okay, this one was right in between a pick and so-so for me. I LOVED the concept and the writing was fantastic. However, main storyline was a bit drawn out. And the ending...not enough changed to justify the long drawn out storyline. But I LOVED the concept. GAHHH

Wicked Deep | Shea Ernshaw

Mehso-so

Some things were great, the concept was wonderful. A curse of three sisters haunting this coastal town every summer, drowning boys, getting revenge on the town that drowned them. But it turned into more of a love story than I wanted. A lot of the very dark emotional stuff was kind of brushed off? Which is always disappointing. So many mixed feelings. 🤷🏼‍♀️

monalyisha Cool cover design even on the ARC! I love ghosts & can deal with a central love story. May have to look this one up! 2y
Kallik93 @monalyisha I usually can deal with a central love story but...the emotion just wasn‘t quite there enough for me at the end. It comes out in March! 2y

This book was pretty intense most of the time!! I didn‘t enjoy the audiobook as much...I think I would have a way better time reading the physical copy, but I think it‘s worth a re-read! Definitely not your average fairy tale. I‘m curious if she will put out more books in the same universe. The ending definitely left that possibility open. #audiobook #fairytales

Just finished the audiobook and I LOVED IT!! The writing style was multi-narrative, and so multi-faceted, I was on the edge of my seat, laughing and exclaiming out loud at one point. In a world with little hope for these ladies, it was awesome to journey with them through their fight for freedom and individuality.

Mitch Really looking forward to this one 2y

“Boof calmly explained.” 😂 I think my favorite thing about a good picture book is when there is a simple sentence and the picture tells another story. This was my favorite page in the book!! I couldn‘t stop laughing about it!! The whole book is full of awesomness like this!

MissAimz_55 So I couldn't comment on the video but I feel you!! I think what's important on challenges is that you make it work for you. I'm doing the pop sugar reading challenge (50 prompts) and then on top of that I challenged myself to read 10 additional books. What I make sure to do is to put books of all genres and lengths in there so it's achievable and fun. I love the new goals you came up for yourself!! Good luck and happy reading 2y

I haven‘t been emotionally wrenched by a book in a very long time. It tells the story of a girl who has to learn to trust in her own heart and mind, and find the courage to stand up for what she knows is right.

I was wary picking up another #riordan book because I tried to read the #percyjackson series, and it was just a little bit too kiddish for me. I was pleasantly surprised. The #diversity in this book is absolutely impressive. From disabilities to religion, almost every character has something that makes them unique, and towards the end of the book, it‘s shown how those traits that in society might have been treated as a weakness becomes a strength.
