I enjoyed getting to know Edel better but Camille continues to annoy me. It‘s a well built world but there are aspects that were lacking explanations.
Favorite part about mystery series- seeing the changes in the lead characters
Generally, I‘m not really a short story fan, I always find myself either wanting more or just not caring about the stories. This was a mixture of the two. Tom Hanks and his love of typewriters is charming as ever but as an audiobook, it was difficult to figure out when one story ended and the next begins.
This is a book of essays targeting young adults. I‘ve been waiting for an essay like this one by Melissa Marr, she talks about her childhood and how it‘s influenced her into who she is now. I found the end of this essay to be very powerful. #halfbloodbingo
This essay was a beautiful tribute
2. Professor McGonagal, Sirius, Lupin
4. Hands down Prisoner of Azkaban
5. Defense Against the Dark Arts, History of Magic (I love all forms of history), transfigurations
At the age of 18, I joined the Obama campaign as the state director for students in New Jersey. I did it because I not only believed in him, but I believed in her and their story. The story of Mrs. Obama is an amazing one, and to hear her perspectives on things was inspiring. Seeing the way her life as a child influenced her as First Lady was a great story to follow. #Halfbloodbingo
Apparently reading political books is the way I‘ve been kicking off #HalfBloodBingo I‘ve known Cory Booker since 2002 and have always liked him in a personal level. His book is a fantastic read on how he ended up mayor of Newark.
This book dealt with two big things: integration and sexuality. I felt the integration piece was phenomenal but I could‘ve done without the sexuality. It felt at points a bit too much for one book to handle. Otherwise, I thought it was phenomenal and thought provoking.
Nell Scovell has written for a lot of shows and her experiences were interesting. However, the parts of the book that I found most interesting had nothing to do with Hollywood rather it was her relationship with Sheryl Sandburg and writing for the White House Correspondents Dinner. #bookclubbook
One of my favorite things to do on a Sunday is watch football and read during the commercials. Vol 4 of thePoe Dameron series may be my favorite especially knowing that it brings me closer and closer to the start of Force Awakens. I especially enjoyed Leia explaining how to perform a heist.
I love the Harry Potter series but it had been a long time since I reread goblet of fire, I had forgotten so much about it especially how emotional the ending is with Molly Weasley. Looking at the cover again, I find its depiction of Harry so interesting because he has this smile when through most of the book, he‘s pretty miserable.
Per my parents library, my next book should be Eat, Pray, Love. I‘ll take it under advisement
Such a successful Yallfest! Between me and @Nitpickyabouttrains we have 51 Arcs. I‘m super excited about Blood Heir and Cold Day in the Sun.
