I like how Nancy Drew is keeping up with the fashions through the years. Good thing she's got her shearling slippers. #bookfashion #nancydrew #justsomethinginoticed

I read this collection a few years ago and it is exquisite. And I finally bought my own copy today! So many haunting tales from pre-1958, many of which stay with you long after you finish them. "Harry" by Rosemary Timperley and "Afterward" by Edith Wharton are my favorites. There's also an interesting backstory as to how this collection came about if you read the intro! #ghoststories #roalddahl #mcnallyjacksonbooks #supportindiebookstores

Bridge to Terabithia | Katherine Paterson

Reading two #snotbombs atm. The above and My Glory Was I Had Such Friends by Amy Silverstein. I'm not typically a cryer so I'm interested to see if either will spark any waterworks. 💦 I'm listening to #terabithia on audio so it will most likely be the winner. Which books have you read that have inspired an epic #cryfest?

Inkheart | Cornelia Funke
post image

I started Inkheart on audio, got like 60% through it and, sadly, decided I could not go on. I really dislike bailing on a book and I take it very seriously when I do. 😞 Lynn Redgrave was a good narrator too! I just could not get into the story. I found I wasn't excited to see what happened next. I'm sorry! Maybe it needs to be physically read. #inkheart #dnf #sorry

Theatre geeks! Drama! Purple hair! What's not to love?! I liked this graphic novel. It was a quick fun read being a theatre person myself.

What a cutie patootie! Diane has such a unique voice. She is friendly, accessible and FUN-ny! I am told that her real life voice is just as unique. I've never seen OITNB, so I went into this blind. I think the cover really drew me in as well as the timeliness of the topic. The heartfelt plea of her last chapter was especially poignant. This book ticks off several boxes on my bingo card... are we allowed to do that?! #litsyreadingchallenge2017

Finally completed this one for The Read Harder Challenge. It took me 13 days!!! Traditional superhero comics just aren't my thing. Unfortunately, this didn't tick anything off on my Litsy bingo card. Oh well! 🤷‍♀️#readharder #femalesuperhero #shero #captainmarvel #girlpower

I love walking through NYC in the past with the characters I'm reading about because I can visualize where they are walking. Another favorite of mine for this reason is The Best of Everything and Rules of Civility. What are your favorite New York books?!

Ghost | Jason Reynolds

I loved this book! It is not a sports book. It is a book for everyone. A brilliant coming-of-age/into-your-own story. Ghost is original, humorous and realistic; He is skeptical, flawed and earnest; Just like the reader. I found the story inspiring in the end and I hope you do to!

Two words: farting dragon 🐉💨🔥

This is an epic j-historical fiction told in the style of the Canterbury Tales and it is illuminated!! It is evident that an immense amount of research went into it, which is praise-worthy enough... Heavy at times but there are frequent laugh-out-loud moments. I admired it greatly and I am still lingering with the text in the days since I've finished it. Recommended for ages 10 & up, at least.

Finally finished up Crooked Kingdom. I was putting off reading the last hundred or so pages because I didn't want to finish it although I have an urgent tbr list considering the mock Newbery and Caldecott's are coming up. The ending was realistic "No mourners, no funerals" but the plotting and scheming are fantastical. A great escape. Re: picture, my cats enjoyed the books too ?

I liked this but I think I wanted to like it more. I am in *love* with the art. The story is intriguing but complicated. Professor Tam Tam (pictured) was very helpful in fleshing out the backstory.

Gone Crazy in Alabama | Rita Williams-Garcia

I liked this entire trilogy! This is probably the slowest of all three and for that reason, I think I liked the first two a bit better. This volume rounded things out nicely without trying too hard. One is left feeling that the girls have a bright future but personally I don't feel like I have an urgent need to know what happens next like I did with The Graveyard Book.
