I‘m really enjoying this more than I expected! It‘s heartbreaking, but the amount of bravery represented in this book by the two sisters is absolutely amazing.
😣The end of the season definitely crept up on me for this season of #booked2019!

Everyone should read this book!
Oh my gosh, I went into this just expecting another pandemic-esque story and got so much more! I was completely enthralled by this novella and couldn‘t put it down until I finished. What a terrifying look at the potential horrors of anti-vaccination propaganda! And as always with Mira Grant‘s (Seanan McGuire) works, the characters are all equally intriguing and absorbing.
I‘m giving this a pick even though my reading of it was more on the so-so side. It IS an adorable, diverse teen romance with a strong female main character who i loved, I think I‘m just not the right audience for sticky sweet romances... 🤷🏻♀️Nonetheless, I know there are plenty of people out there who will/have enjoyed this!
Wow. This book had me hooked from the start and all the way through to the end!
Accused of killing an infant that was in her mother‘s care at the age of 9, Mary has never known much outside of baby jail and group homes. When Mary finds out she is pregnant, she must decide how to tell her truth in order to protect and keep her own child.
This book is intense and has some really interesting twists!
This beautiful, heart-warming story about a Native character finding her place in the world had me so invested! ❤️ Apple is quirky, sweet and sometimes extremely awkward. (I feel ya, girl!)
This book was wonderful and such a great look at the Native experience from an #ownvoices author. I hope it finds it‘s way into many teen (and non-teen) readers hands!
My final tally for #deweysapril #readathon was 3 books, 2 graphic novels and about 4 hours worth of audio! 676 pages in total.
I didn‘t get a huge amount read but I blame that on Black Leopard, Red Wolf being such a chunkster! almost half of my pages read are from that one! 😳
I didn‘t participate too much in activities and mostly just read all day/night. ❤️❤️ A perfect readathon!
I really liked this! Fun stories about three girls in their first semester at university. Lighthearted but still touches on some really important topics while making me laugh!
I‘m up to 13 hours and 41 mins for the #readathon! Hoping I can last for a few more hours at least!
#audioeating with my falafel and salad lunch! One of my favorite things about participating in the #readathon is preparing food the night before! 😋 Made this falafel, tzatziki sauce, and some yummy avocado dip last night so I could attempt to be relatively healthy today. 🤷🏻♀️
1) North Carolina
2)Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire!
3) I made some avocado feta “crack” dip last night and I can‘t wait to dig into it!😋
4) I‘m a zookeeper and spend half my time taking care of primates and the other half consuming as many books as possible!
5)This is my 3rd readathon! And today I‘m trying to be causal and just enjoy as much reading as possible.

Lots of amazing reads this season! ❤️
Picked this up on a whim at the library and I ended up actually really enjoying it! I‘ve seen mixed reviews on goodreads, mostly due to it being a bit slow at times or cliche, but I would give it a 3.5/5 stars. My only issue was that I cared more for a couple of the side characters than the actual Girl King.
Finished this up tonight for my #fairytaleretelling prompt for #booked2019!
This is an anthology of fairytale retellings, many of them darker in nature than our traditional knowledge of fairytales. Definitely for adults rather than children!
I absolutely love fairytales, folklore, mythology and retellings. Really enjoyed this one! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2
Finished this amazing read without putting it down today, because I was that drawn in! Sadie is about an older sister whose younger sister has been murdered and her journey to finding her sister‘s killer. Simultaneously, a podcast is being recorded about the girls while family friends are trying to find out where Sadie went. It‘s tough, but such a good read. #relatedtoapodcast #booked2019
I really enjoyed this short novel and the title does not mince words! It is literally about the main character‘s sister who has become a serial killer after killing her third boyfriend! I enjoyed the characters and the look at the lengths Korede would go to to keep her sister out of jail. A short story but it packs quite a punch!
I flew through this graphic novel that I had definitely picked up on a whim from the library! Went into this without knowing much, only that I‘ve seen it around a bunch and I absolutely loved it! The artwork is lush and beautiful, and the mysterious Spill Zone with all its creepy denizens really intrigued me. Can‘t wait to check out the next one!
YA‘LL, I had so much fun reading this! I was definitely a kid who grew up on Buffy and still love the show with all my being, so needless to say I was terrified this would disappoint me. But you can honestly tell that White is a huge fan and respects the Buffyverse and it shines through. Definitely read this if you‘re looking for a nostalgic read about a new slayer in this beloved world!
Plus it‘s #setinIreland! #booked2019
Won this #ARC copy through #bookishfirst and absolutely loved it!
The Afterward is essentially about what characters do after their epic quest is over. How do they go about everyday life as heroes in the afterward?
It‘s a very character-driven look at two of the main heroes and their relationship. Beautifully diverse and inclusive, and has the sweetest sapphic relationship!
Finished this my 2nd Tana French book for the #femaledetective prompt for #booked2019!
I loved reading this. I don‘t know what it is about Tana French‘s writing, but every time I read one of her books I‘m fully enthralled. The writing is just so grim and atmospheric, it‘s like watching an episode of True Detective! I think I enjoyed this one even more than In the Woods.
Just finished up my re-read of Tithe and Cruel Prince before starting The Wicked King and going to meet Holly Black tomorrow night! 🙀🙀😻😻
Tithe is also my #remindsyouofyourhappyplace read for #booked2019! I read this when I was in high school and fell in love with folklore and the faerie world, and have been consuming all I can since then. I‘ve reread it multiple times and it always makes me nostalgic and happy. 💛
I absolutely LOVED this. I seriously don‘t know how I‘ve managed to not read all of Kristoff‘s works yet! His characters never cease to make me attached and heartbroken, and cheering all at once! This was amazing and full of fun cyborgs, logika, and lots of action! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
What a beautifully unique and unsettling book! This was a really interesting read and the book itself is so aesthetically pleasing, but my favorite part by far was the author‘s note at the end. The words for why Ancrum wrote this, who they wrote it for, and why it is important were so eloquent and meaningful.
Read for #dragonsandteabookclub on goodreads!
Finished this last night to complete my #readharder2018 prompts JUST in time! 😉
This was ultimately amazing! The first half of the book is a little bit hard to follow because there is a LOT of hard science in here, but the last half of the book made up for it for me! This is a book essentially dealing with the question of whether or not humanity should be saved. And it is terrifying but somehow hopeful at the same time.
One of my last #readharder2018 challenge prompts of the year! We‘ll see if I can get it done by the end of the month. 😬
With this last read I have finally completed my end season of reads for #booked2018! Just in time 🙌🏼😉

I absolutely loved this book! Trevor‘s voice is so authentic and engaging. I did not expect to be as drawn into this memoir as I was, but I just kept flying through it! I would recommend this to anybody! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Loved this modern-day Pride and Prejudice retelling! It was full of so much heart and beautiful messages. Sometimes retellings don‘t quite make the cut for me, but Zoboi truly took P&P and used it as inspirational framework to create her own unique story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
