Sangria + a book = best way to spend a Sunday.
It's math at work. ^_^
Seriously this history of Milicent Patrick and the insight into animation and being a woman in creative industries is fantastic. This book is funny at moments, and the passion Mallory O'Meara has transcends the page.

So excited to be reading this book! I adore Sandhya Menon's books and her talent for writing brilliant characters. Sweetie is definitely resonating with me, and the humor and charm of this book is making me fall head over heels!

3 books of poetry, much of which I've drunk like water these past few hours and one non-fiction book that looks small but is going to be much more than its size suggests. Sometimes a little poetry is needed to break your heart and remind you of the beauty of the world and language.

I..... needed this book on a level I didn't realize. This book was brilliantly written, and gave me a whole lot of feelings as I read, sadness, hope, and (of course) a good dose of anger. Definitely a must read and a reminder that anger is a good thing and can be connective and inspiring and be the start to something truly revolutionary. Damn. I *absolutely* needed this.

ohyeahthatgirl I love listening to this show, but reading it might have been even more my jam. And the new ones come out very soon! 10mo
RebelGrrrl I love reading it because I can process things slightly better and it already feels like the words are sticking more than they do when I listen, but I have to admit, Cecil makes this show what it is. His voice is everything and as a result it's a little weird to be reading rather than listening lol 10mo

My collection of the Reluctant Royals series is now complete! I am super stoked to read and finish these books! Alyssa Cole is a brilliant romance writer and her books are absolutely worth collecting and keeping to read--and then re-read! These books are pure joy

This was a super sweet book! The characters were wonderful and the small town nova scotia setting was lovingly detailed and I felt very much transported into this story. It's a lovely ode to comics, small towns, family, and growing up.

This book has been on my library TBR shelf since I first got it as a library hold after it was published. I left work early yesterday because of not feeling well, and my excitement for free comic book day helped me decide that this was the next book to read! It's a lovely, sweet read thus far, and I am glad to see Faith Erin Hicks expanding her creative endeavors! I love her work in general 💖 #amreading #ya

Did I read this while I was on the reference desk and the library was momentarily quiet? Yes. Did the ending make me tear up and almost cry while at said desk? I'm not telling. I love this book, and Pura Belpré is absolutely someone all aspiring librarians should know and keep her spirit in your work! 💖📚

On the Come Up | Angie Thomas

Loved this book! I sat down yesterday and just read it straight through and by the end it felt like I'd gone on a roller coaster ride! The characters are great, and Bri is relatable and though she might be too stubborn at times, she learns from her mistakes. Super sweet and wonderful book, and a wonderful ode to rap-a heavily misunderstood genre- and the spotify playlist is a excellent accompaniment if you truly want to dive into this book!

This book is the reminder you find books when you need them. I was browsing the shelves at a county library that I hadn't been to and I found this book and it called to me. I started it on the bus ride home and damn, does this book feel like exactly what I need right now. And need to own. #amreading #books #poetry #readingintransit

Rock She Wrote | Evelyn McDonnell, Ann Powers

The first time I read Rock She Wrote it changed my life. I never thought love of music and love of writing could go together, and that realization was huge. While I didn't pursue the path of music critic, I did find my way into libraries, and I recently had the opportunity to act as a juror for the next round of submissions for hum.slcpl.org and it was amazing and challenging and a dream come true

I have finally started reading this book, and it's fascinating to read about the lives of these women and also the role of art when the world goes to war. Will I finish it by tomorrow's Art Book Club meeting? Doubtful, but I'll do my best!

Sundays are becoming a favorite day for hanging out at the salt lake city public library and checking out the #zine collection. Today I revisited one of my fave zines, the ouija interviews and read a delightful reflection on how there is no right way to meditate and other thoughts on life. The creativity involved in these zines always inspires me to want to make more of my own! ❤

Prep for a book display at my #library! Winter has yet to be over which means that there are lots of reasons for cozy cardigans, candles, tea, and chocolate chip cookies. So why not make a #book display featuring all of these things?? Also semi-in the picture: a very tasty Manhattan.

Finishing off #24in48 with books 2 and 3 of the Amulet series, which is a fantastic middle grade graphic novel series that is an epic adventure of good and evil with brilliant characters. The world building and the visualization of these characters and worlds is absolutely wonderful and I'm stoked to read more! #comics #amreading

Pulp | Robin Talley

This #24in48 readathon is amazing and I have finished another book! Whoa! Pulp is a very sweet novel, and the two storylines together worked very well. I am a sucker for these kinds of storylines where history comes to life in meaningful ways and I love that this book exists for queer teens as a reminder that being out in the 50s was a very different process, and terrifying. #amreading #queerlit

I had to visit the city library to pick up some holds, and since it had been a while since I perused our #zine collection, I decided to fix that, and spend some time reading/flipping through zines! These ones I read and enjoyed greatly! (Also if you're not familiar with zines, the book I tagged is a fabulous primer!) #24in48 #amreading #makezines

"Laura liked to draw, sometimes she thought she should drop out and pursue it full time, but she didn't feel like being a trans girl starving artist would be a good life path for her. Instead she carried on going to engineering school, working her shitty part time job at the library.... She was quickly getting bored of the mundanity. Therefore, Satan." #24in48 #queerlit #transvoices

RebelGrrrl I started this book with the story from RJ Edwards, who is also a host on my fave podcast, Book Club for Masochists, and it was an excellent, thoughtful story. The voice in the story I'm currently reading by Aisling Fae ( Satan Are You There? It's Me, Laura) is already one I'm enjoying and I cannot wait to see where this goes 13mo

The Bell Jar was not the easiest book I've ever read, but I really am glad to have read it. Sylvia Plath was an incredibly gifted writer, and there were a lot of moments I stopped to take note of a particularly notable line. The feminist book group convo was a good follow up to finishing it (just in the nick of time!) #24in48 #feministclassics #fembookclub

This book is delightful and funny and is a smart take on the genre of romance and has given me a hell of a lot of respect for the genre. It's also given me a game for my book group this evening as we discuss Julie Garwood's the Bride and romance in general!

If you told me a year ago that sports comics from Boom! Studios would make me care about something like dodgeball I would have laughed at you and asked you to go read better comics. But here we are, in a world where Dodge City exists and does a fantastic job of creating compelling characters, tension, and great art (yay, Cara McGee!) This definitely could have been a longer series but as it is- it's fun and enjoyable!

I have two whole days off and I'm very nearly done with this book which is freaking fantastic and fun! I have not read a ton of fantasy novels in the past few years, and apparently the key to getting into the genre was through secret fantastical missions with amazing librarians. I'm stoked to finish this and read way more of this series!

This book is intense and brilliant and will definitely inspire a lot of great conversation at our feminist book club meeting! Also, this book may inspire a lot of re-reads, because there is a lot happening and there's no way I'm getting all of it on first read.

Jilly6183 I loved this book. That first story has really stuck with me. 1y

Fun fact: any Kerouac or Ginsberg I've read was part of college and I remember very little tbh. I discovered this book at the City Library yesterday as I'd been questing through the stacks looking for books that might fit with a book display idea. I started flipping through these pages and OMG I LOVE THIS BOOK. The window into their lives and friendship is such a treasure. Also I'm reminded that I really should try to write more letters...

This was the first in a brand new series by Sam Humphries and Jen Bartel and it was absolutely BRILLIANT. first issues are hard because they involve a lot of set up--who are the characters? Where are we? Do we want to read more? This issue was haunting and beautiful and Bartel's art and the colors in these pages enhanced the story and the magical tone . I want more. Waiting is going to be tough. #comics
