Crooked Kingdom | Leigh Bardugo

“But what about the rest of us? What about the nobodies and the nothings, the invisible girls? We learn to hold our heads as if we wear crowns. We learn to wrong magic from the ordinary. That was how you survived when you weren‘t chosen, when there was no royal blood in your veins. When the world owed you nothing, you demanded something of it anyway.” Inej pg 460.

Grand gesture! I love this series. Cute, creative, and feel good stories that always make me smile. I‘m beyond excited to see we are getting a fourth book next year and it honestly sounds like it‘s going to be the best one yet.

Riley Sager has easily become one of my favorite authors. This is my third book by him and I can‘t get enough. This book was fast pace and kept me guessing. Perfect book for October. The twist had me like 🙀

I ended up loving this book and young girls everywhere should be required to read it. I was really surprised to read at the end how this was inspired by true events and goes to show why we need more books like this. The unlikely bond and friendship formed by these girls had me rooting for them til the end 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Good Girl, Bad Blood | Holly Jackson

Almost done with this and happy to say I‘m actually loving this sequel more than the first book. Excited to see that there will be a third book in this series because I not ready to say bye to one of my new favorite detectives. I love the structure of this book and how it feels more like you‘re along side the investigation by reading the interviews, seeing pictures, and following along with the podcasts.

wicdiv I'm in the same boat and loved this, even more so than the first book. I'm really looking forward to future installments which I think Holly is doing. 2y

I can‘t recommend this book enough. I cried, I learned a lot, I remembered one of the reasons why I wanted to be a lawyer. The concept of justice feels broken, especially amongst minorities however if more of us speak out and lean on each other, justice can prevail. Keep reading, keep learning, keep listening. We all have a lot to do.

marleed I read this book this year, as well. It‘s very powerful. 2y

Fantastic debut novel! This really felt like a collection of short stories that revolve around a tragic event and how that event impacts the lives of these individuals. This book has it all: sexism, racism, injustice, love, rage, sexual assault, kindness, and most of all hope. I want more stories like this, especially ones that highlight women and their strength. This should be required reading.

Mehso-so

Unpopular opinion: wasn‘t a fan of this book. I was so excited to read it after seeing the trailer but I found the book often dragged. I liked the overall theme and some of the individual story lines but at times it felt choppy and not developed enough. I also felt like the ending was rushed. I‘m still going to watch the show as I love Reese and Kerry but I could have passed on this book.

What a perfect ending to a great series. I‘m so glad I picked this series up. I fell in love with the characters and this final book did a great job at tying up loose ends and giving everyone the ending they deserved. I‘m so sad it‘s over. I would love for Kevin Kwan to gift us in the future with some novellas! Now time to finally see the first movie.

The Wives: A Novel | Tarryn Fisher

I was hesitant to jump into this because I really hated ‘Bad Mommy‘ but my book club decided that we should try to give Tarryn Fisher another try. Unexpectedly, I ended up really enjoying this one. I was dying to know what was happening and was hooked until the very end. I‘m glad I gave her another try!

Know My Name: A Memoir | Chanel Miller

“To girls everywhere, I am with you.” I was in law school when this story broke and I will never forget the anger, the frustration, and the disappointment in our justice system. I couldn‘t wait to read this and I was impressed with Chanel‘s memoir. It was brave, raw, inspiring, and a great conversation starter. Thank you Chanel. I believe you and I support victims.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Another one that is on my ‘I really need to read it soon‘ list. I‘m sure it‘s so good, which sounds strange, but I‘m so proud that she had the courage to put it out there. 3y

I didn‘t love this book as much I hoped I would but I think it‘s because at times I found the timeline confusing and I knew a lot about the golden state killer from listening to podcasts. I will say that it is still worth reading and I‘m sad that Michelle McNamara didn‘t get to see the arrest of a lifetime. I believe her hard work and thoughtful research played a major part in what‘s about to happen.
