I completely forgot about #24B4Monday probably because this week has KICKED. MY. BUTT. 3 presentations/workshops, a whole lot of coughing and not sleeping, and low self-esteem. But I am going to start this weekend off with some lighter readings!

cobwebmoth I hope you're feeling better soon! 2w

Wow. Wow. Wow. I loved this 3-person perspective-taking novel on the women who were behind the downfall of Gilead. I will say, Atwood clearly catered to the people who have been watching the HULU series. Aunt Lydia finally making amends, June's daughter Hannah (Agnes in the novel) being courageous as ever, and Baby Nicole trying way too hard to fit in with Garth and stand out against the Pearls/Aunts.

"Becka said the names were made from the names of products women had liked once and would be reassured by, but she herself did not know what those products were. Nobody our age knew, she said. She read the list of names out to me, since I could not read yet. "What about Maybelline?" She said." ??

My little reading kit. I decided that I wanted to start using an actual dictionary so I had less of a reason to get on my phone while reading (which then distracts me with notifications and I stop reading altogether). Phone addiction is real 😔 baby steps to rely less on tech and regain my patience and attention span!

I realize that I forgot to post this one! To be quite honest, I loved this graphic novel. From the aesthetic and feel of the book to the story of loss, confidence, and triumph, I can't express in words just how much I loved it. I would even venture to say this might be on book that I would be willing to re-read again and again.

I thought that this was a great read as millennial who is dealing with many similar problems (worry about student debt, probably spending way too much on things I don't need, etc). I empathized with the author often, especially when she recounted struggling with her mental health and addiction while trying to figure out what she loved and who she was. I especially found the list at the end helpful as I move toward spending less. Recommend!

I admit, I am such a happy human with sappy YA. This book was basically perfect. I loved the cast of characters - they felt real and honest - and I frankly didn't know who Blue was until he was revealed. I couldn't believe that I didn't pick up on the major hints the author sprinkled throughout (just like Simon didn't)! I'm so glad for the representation, the dialogue about our assumptions, and the adorable romance (of course). So much recommend.

JoyBlue I *did* guess Blue's identity; but, it didn't diminish from my love of this book. 😉 ❤💛💚💙💜 2mo

I'm already loving this book and feeling a slight affirmation as a queer person. Why do we have such a compulsion to gender the individuals in front of us?

I often find that people assume me to be a "ma'am" or a "she" when sometimes I really just feel like a 'they' ? even this shrugging icon is distinctly 'female'!

Question for folks who use NetGalley! I am a casual reader (and by no means make money from reading books) and am curious whether NG is fine for casual readers or if it's just meant for folks who read professionally/are educators/librarians/authors, etc. The sign-up page makes me feel like it's meant more for people who can reach a wide audience (people not me haha). Thoughts? I'd ask, but the site required you have an acct to reach them. Thanks!

Megabooks I want to know this as well. I don‘t have a blog anymore. Am I still eligible? 2mo
ReadingOver50 I am more of a casual reader and I use NetGalley. Initially I requested too many books and it became a bit stressful to keep up with them all. Now I read 1 or 2 per month from NetGalley. Don‘t worry if you get rejected for some books. Just make sure you review the ones you get. 2mo
LogiKitty @Megabooks @ReadingOver50 thank you so much for this response! When you review all the books you receive, does that get you more books in the future? Also, is there a certain amount of time you have to read the books by? 2mo
ReadingOver50 @LogiKitty the more reviews you post the better your chances of getting new books. They keep track of how many you request vs how many you review. And since most are ARCs they want the review posted by publication date. 2mo
LogiKitty @ReadingOver50 thank you so much! 2mo

Mehso-so

It wasn't half bad, and I hadn't expected the twist when it came, but it certainly wasn't as “thriller“ as I had expected. I found Lo to not be a very enjoyable/likeable character. There was SUCH a heavy focus on her diagnosis and the believablility of her story because of her mental health condition that it drove me nuts. I feel like the author kind of used it as a crutch. And overall, she was a bit too nosy for my taste. Overall, decent, though.

jb72 Yeah I wasn‘t thrilled with this book either. I felt like the MC could‘ve and should‘ve known better about many things in the book (like taking meds and drinking). 2mo
LogiKitty @jb72 agreed! Which is funny because she rationalizes it and tries to make a good argument for why it's fine for her (since she's done it for so long) 2mo

All the Rage | Courtney Summers

This rounds out my readings of all the C. Summers books. Just as the others did, this one had me stopping, crying, and feeling a lot of hurt. #MeToo shouldn't have to be a movement, but this book just exemplifies why it is and how even the ones who are supposed to protect us don't believe the stories of horrific acts of sexual violence on female bodies. How it breaks people and makes them do anything to feel normal again in their skin.

LogiKitty [Quote: “I think wildly that I could reach through and grab her wrist, like I could stop her and take her away, because no one else is doing it. Because no one else did it.

I put my hand to the screen, covering hers. We‘re wearing the same color nail polish.“]

This passage reminds me of an article I read during a training... About how we demonize people who are struggling for the vices they have when maybe that's the only current comfort they have. It's a good read to get a different perspective.

Wow. WoW. WOW. This book was incredibly suspenseful, and I thoroughly didn't expect the twists and turns. I'm not really the reader that tries to figure it out, anyway, but a lot of this I didn't predict. Except for the VERY end, to which I am absolutely positively happy and fine with. Good for her, tbh. This was my last book for this weekend's #24B4Monday!

This is one of the best books I have ever listened to and I'm really awed by the similarities these folks experienced despite me living in a “liberal/better off“ area (where we pretend this doesn't happen) and where Vance spent his childhood. He challenges us to be compassionate for “his people“ because of the cycles of abuse and suffering generation after generation. He challenges us to see them for their values - family & tradition. THIS. 😍 😭

LogiKitty To be clear: I do not believe that where I live is some “better-off“ area. People just believe CA is this safehaven from terrible things because we're more liberal, but a lot of the same things happen here (poverty, abuse, alcohol and drug abuse, etc). 3mo

At first, I felt hopeless reading this book, then I realized the whole point. We can bring comfort and happiness by simple acts of kindness. But we first have to pay attention to the people around us. We have to notice their pains and struggles. We have to prioritize the health of humanity over our selfish perceptions and ways that we disagree. We need to treat others like they're important, and we need to help one another. Even in simple ways.

I can only seem to read a bit at a time cause nearly ever chapter has got me sniffly. This last chapter...JD humanizing the statistic and theory that having 1 loving adult in your life can change everything and create a gritty, resilient child by saying it's more than just words - it's a feeling he doesn't need theory to feel.

Honestly, I'm so taken aback by this book. It's somewhat what I expected to learn, but there's so much more that's really heartbreaking and humanizing about "poor white trash" (basically the author's words, not mine). I can't wait to continue! About 1/3 the way through!

The_Real_Nani Very illuminating! 3mo
LogiKitty @The_Real_Nani have you read this one? 🙂 3mo
The_Real_Nani @LogiKitty Yes! A couple of years ago. At the time, I was like, wow this makes a lot of sense. But now, looking back, so much has happened that I wonder how I would feel about the book if I re-read it. 2mo

This was a really enjoyable audiobook! I always like listening to audiobooks with accented characters.
