#RecipeSwap opening was like Christmas! @Gissy I can‘t thank you enough. A whole fantastic book of amazing Puerto Rican recipes that I cannot wait to make. The amazing sweets are so thoughtful which I will be eating as I immediately dive into Our Violent Ends. You spoiled me! Expect a real Thank You soon! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Wow. Not often a book can make you both laugh and cry. What a unique way to write a memoir. Each chapter begins with a different mix tape from a time in the author‘s life. The themes in the songs match the themes of the narrative. If you love music as much as I do, this book is a must. It‘s about love and loss and the beauty of life and music and feeling alive. Music really makes us feel our emotions, even one‘s we didn‘t know we might be feeling.

Book of Night | Holly Black
post image
Pickpick

I see what the so-so raters mean; the plot was so different and unique it took awhile to get vested in the story. But I hung in there and was rewarded at the end. A plot twist I totally did not see coming! The second half of the book was much better but it did take me some time before I was interested. I love Holly Black‘s books and if you‘re a fan also, then this is a must read. If you are new to this author, I would start with the other series.

The Nineties: A Book | Chuck Klosterman
post image
Pickpick

I loved everything about this. I was born in ‘83 so the nineties were my decade. I still love everything nineties; it‘s my favorite music, movies and TV shows. I love all of Klosterman‘s books and find them super amusing and insightful. He always writes about all things pop culture related and this did not disappoint. I mean do you all remember getting tons of AOL CDs mailed to your home? If you do, read this book! 😂

“This book is a love letter to Bowie…” and I loved every second of it. Some nice insight into his songs and his impact on the world. I used to read a lot of books about music and this reminded me why I like that genre. I‘m absolutely going to check out Sheffield‘s other books next.

I wasn‘t immediately hooked on this series. I spent much of the book wondering if I would want to even read Book 2. The ending hooked me. Now I need to see what‘s going to happen.

persephone1408 I absolutely loved this series 3w
Meshell1313 @persephone1408 ok that‘s good to hear. I‘m hoping that means I‘ll like the rest of the books better. I can‘t place why I wasn‘t immediately hooked. 3w

You had me at Romeo & Juliet meet 1920‘s Shanghai. Add in some supernatural fantasy and this kept me immersed in the story. I loved meeting old, familiar characters in new ways! My favorite is what Gong did with Friar Lawrence! I can‘t wait to check out the next book in the series.

When I find an author I like I read all of their books. And I mean ALL. Before Litsy I had to keep track the old fashioned way 😂 This app has made tracking much easier. And the new Armentrout book did not disappoint. It had it all, love, family, the supernatural, comedy, drama. Up next is the soon to be released book in her Flesh & Fire series.

Vow of Thieves | Mary E. Pearson
post image
Pickpick

Kazi and Jase return home to find everything has changed. They are losing their kingdom and everyone they love. As with every Pearson book there are some deep betrayals, secrets & lies. We learn a lot more about the Ancients (us now) and what we did to destroy our civilization. That‘s still my favorite storyline. Lots more settings of our time to uncover.

Hello #GroupI of LMPBC 014! Figured I‘d start us off! I‘m thinking of All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir for my pick. It comes out March 1st, so the timing just feels right. Added bonus: I know no one will have read it yet! And it‘s a stand alone YA which is a rare find! What do you think and nice to meet you?!

Are you like me where when you find an author you like you read all of their books before moving on?
This next series by Pearson is set in the same Remnant world only 6 years after the last book so you have many of the old characters. But this story focuses on two new ones, Kazi and Jase, who are basically playing a game of cat and mouse filled with secrets, lies and more betrayals.
Still loving the Ancients story lines and settings.

The best book in the trilogy. Good ending. War is coming and the kingdoms are trying to not repeat our mistakes. They do not want to become unknown and extinct like we did. Likable characters who all find out who they are and what they are made of.

Anthem | Noah Hawley

“This isn‘t a fairy tale,” the back of this book reads. What is the opposite of a fairy tale? A nightmare? Then that is what this satire portrays. A deeply depressing not so future America that shows society‘s effects on teens and adults. Almost a warning: this is what will happen if we continue to act the way we are acting.

Kiss of Deception | Mary E Pearson

Book 1 of The Remnant Chronicles. A Princess tries to escape her fate and find her place the world. The BEST part is the setting. It is a future Earth, where all that is left of “the ancients” are a few places/monuments/landmarks that the reader can recognize as the west coast. I loved trying to decipher which city/landmark/structure the author was referring to.

Not the type of book I usually read but I‘m into Tracy Wolff right now so I gave it a shot. Cute story of a 35 year old woman trying to find herself again after a divorce. Circumstances have her moving back to the suburbs of NJ. There‘s family drama, legal drama and HOA drama.

I am a Kendra‘s Blake fan so when this new book came out I immediately grabbed it. I had no idea it was a Buffy the Vampire Slayer book! There is obviously a lot of Buffy canon I have no knowledge of and this book tries to catch you up on everything you might have missed….which is A LOT. I found all of those stories distracting. This one is about Buffy and Willow‘s children…the next generation of vampire slayers. I think I should rewatch TV show!
