Such a mesmerizing story beautifully written with magic at its forefront. A story about the love between sisters and the lengths they‘ll go to save each other.

Finished this one last night. I was pleasantly surprised by the story. The cover was a bit of a turnoff, but the story of how the narrator became covered in tattoos was horrifying and intriguing.

Where were you ten years ago? What if that‘s the last thing you remembered? Alice tries to put the pieces of the last ten years together while she struggles to regain her memory.

A very moving story about a girl who stood up for what she believed. Malala is shot by the Taliban, because even as a young girl she spoke out against banning females from gaining an education. Her story walks the reader through what it was like when the Taliban took over Pakistan.

I feel like this book has two parts. The first part sets up what it‘s like to live in a hockey town. The second part is how all that can unravel when their loyalty is in question.

Hey, fellow Wisconsin Littens! @Kshakal and I are looking for some bookishly fun things to do in Madison this weekend. Any suggestions?

MayginReads I feel like I should be able to help, but besides book shopping and library browsing, I can't think of anything. Frugal Muse bookstore is a great used book option. @JenReadsAlot any thoughts? 2y
Little_Reader @MayginReads That‘s the kind of stuff we‘re looking for. Good used bookstore recommendations are welcome! 2y
JenReadsAlot I can't think of anything else right now but will let you know! 2y

MayginReads I have problems with self-control in Frugal Muse. I think it's worth a browse. The Sun Prairie library has a used bookstore in it and all the books are $1 or less, with a few exceptions for new-ish books. It's called Read Before Book Store. They are only rarely open from 6-8 pm, but here's their info http://www.sunprairiepubliclibrary.org/read-book-store I also LOVE that library. It has a reading room with a fireplace. 2y
MayginReads Oh, also, I haven't been in A Room of One's Own in a long time, but when I used to visit them, I was impressed with their niche selection. While their selection includes classic and current fiction and non-fiction, they "have strong children's and young adult, women's studies and LGBT fiction and nonfiction sections" as well as a solid local authors section. They also sell used books. https://www.roomofonesown.com 2y
gossamerchild The Central library is always worth checking out (HA!, sorry). There's also a Wisconsin Litsy meetup happening on the 10th, if you're interested. I'd second Room of One's Own. Beautiful bookstore. There's a great mystery bookstore in the West side, too : https://www.mysterytomebooks.com 2y
gossamerchild Side note, I stared at this picture for a good 10 seconds thinking, Man, that Capitol building looks awfully familiar 🤣🤣. 2y
gossamerchild HA. You know about the meetup. Sorry 🙄 2y
Little_Reader @MayginReads @gossamerchild Thanks for the recommendations! Hope to see you both on Saturday! 🤓 2y

I didn‘t think I would like this book, but it sucked me in. From the beginning, we know Roderick McCrae murdered a man, but the book is built around what led him to do it. An interesting look inside a small community in the Scottish Highlands in 1869.

First book done for #24in48. 😉 Loved this one and how it tied the first two books from the series into the continuing narrative. This novel is a bit more of a jump into the fantastical side, but I still loved it. #24in48
