My favorite in this collection was the first one

I was browsing the ebooks from my library and I was excited to come across these Goosebumps Graphic Novels. As a child I was obsessed with Goosebumps. The first is called Creepy Creatures and has the stories: The Werewolf of Fever Swamp, The Scarecrow Walks At Midnight and The Abdominal Snowman of Pasadena. I loved that each story is illustrated by a different artist. My favorite was the werewolf story.

I'm always a sucker for a book with random facts and tidbits. This one did not disappoint. Unmentionable gives insight on what life was like for the women of the Victorian era past the surface of what is usually talked about in history. It's written in a funny sometimes snarky tone and will definitely make you happy to be a modern woman.

I really enjoyed the audiobook of The Loneliest Girl in the Universe! For sure one of my top reads this year so far. The way the book is worked well in that format I think. The story had me sucked in from the beginning. I had to know what was going to happen next! The author does a great job of making you feel the way Romy does in the book. Also I liked that the author portrays the teen very realistically.

Of Neptune is a really nice ending to the Syrena Legacy series. Galen and Emma are definitely one of my favorite book character couples. I was so glad that the author gave them such a solid sweet ending.

Hunted | Meagan Spooner

I finally sat down to finish this book and boy am I glad I did. I've been reading it off and on for months. It kept getting pushed aside for others. I ended up loving the book Hunted though. I definitely recommend it if you like fairytale retellings. I think this is the first one I've read of Beauty & The Beast. I enjoyed the story switching between perspectives so that you can see more of the mindset of Beast and how it changes through the story.

I enjoyed the first book of the Sookie Stackhouse series. I never really watched True Blood except for a few trailers here and there. It seems like the characters were pretty close to how the book describes though.

I know a lot of others loved this one but I just didn't by the end. I liked how it was set up. I also liked how it went back and forth through the timelines. But the end I just kind of felt let down by the whole story itself.

Of Triton | Anna Banks
post image
Pickpick

I enjoyed Of Triton as much as the first book of the Syrena Legacy series. It is a fun easy read for the summer. Mermaids or Syrena in this case make you want to go see the ocean and all of its wonders. I think Galen and Emma are sweet together. I did get a bit sad about an event at the end but don't want to spoil that here. Luckily there is another book of this series.

I enjoyed this one as well. It was nice to see more backstory in this volume and to find out about the secret government monster agents called The Dead Presidents.

The TV show IZombie is one of my favorites so when I saw it was inspired by this comic/graphic novel series I decided to check it out. The first thing you learn is they aren't very much alike at all but that made it interesting to read. The second stand out thing about this IZombie is that the art work is incredible! I will definitely have to check out the rest of the volumes of IZombie when I can.

This is one of those times where I think the story would have been really good in regular book format. As a graphic novel Piper felt kind of rushed. I tend to like retellings though I have to say this is the first one I've read that was a retelling of the story of the Pied Piper. I did like that in this story it showed what made Piper do the things he did in the end and the kinder side of him when he is with the character Maggie.

I picked up this one because poetry was one of the genres for a challenge in a book club I'm in. Poetry is just usually not my cup of tea to be honest but I liked some of them in this collection. I liked how they were separated into their different categories like love, friendship, and motherhood. My favorite section was the last one titled How To Live.

I didn't know what to expect from this book but it was interesting. It was a quick read and I enjoyed the short chapters. I liked how the author kept switching between current day to when the sister's father was alive. Usually I don't like that but it did help the reader learn more about the sister's past.

It's not every day that you meet a real Prince let alone a Prince of the Syrena.
I have to say I really enjoyed this book! It was a random pick off the shelf from my last library visit. I don't think I've really read many books about Mermaids or Syrena as they are called in this series. The last line of the book makes me wish I immediately had the next one in the series to start on. Now I want to find more mermaid related books to check out.

Sitting outside listening to the rain and reading this library book. Hopefully the storms dont get too bad again later (plus the next several days still) but at least I've got plenty to read. Besides we've had so much rain I could almost be a mermaid myself 🤣

Starting on Uglies by Scott Westerfeld today. I read it once when I was younger and enjoyed it but never finished the series. So they have been on my shelf forever it seems. One of my book groups is reading it this month so it seemed like a good time to get started again on it. Luckily the weather is nice outside! It's a great pick me up since I'm not feeling good today.

I've been in a reading slump lately so I put aside all of my other books to pick up a fun quick kind of mindless read to help. I decided to see what Jess and pals were up to in the second book of the series. They didn't disappoint of course with their antics.

Such a beautiful day outside so taking advantage of it to finish reading my current book. Apparently what I need to get out of my reading slump was to pick a different book.

Sorry I went quiet here I'm back though. I've been in a big reading slump. I'm doing a casual readathon in one of my fb books groups so hopefully that gets me back on track. While I was gone I finished that embroidery piece I was working on so thought I'd show it off now

RedxoHearts @Amberdfoy It's actually a preprinted kit I bought from Joann's. They had blessed and inspire I believe was the other one like this one. Do you do a lot of embroidery? 7mo
Amberdfoy I do more cross stitch. But I love embroidery and have seen the new fad of small hoops with embroidered landscapes in them. I would absolutely LOVE to be able to make those!! 7mo
RedxoHearts I'm the opposite I love to embroidery but want to branch out to cross stitch. I want to learn how to make the flowery pieces with a name or a word in the middle like that. So beautiful! I have found a few patterns on etsy shops I plan to try out soon. 7mo

Oh no! I'm sorry yall it seems there was an accident along the line with the package from @kspenmoll for #LMPBC. The book or books must have had a rough trip somewhere. Unfortunately it came to me opened and empty. :( @kspenmoll @Wife @Maria514626

Wife Oh! No😮 @kspenmoll Can you let us know what was lost? 8mo
kspenmoll That is the first time that has ever happened to me! I will check with post office; was insured. 😡In the meantime I can get the books...A Beautiful Poison right? and mine. But our thoughts won‘t be in the books. ☹️ 8mo
RedxoHearts I know I've never had that issue with book mail either. I'm sorry. The envelope felt almost like it may have gotten a little wet and the seal came open but I'm not sure. I was going to say if you let me know what the books were I can find them online or at the library maybe read them and just post my thoughts/notes here for yall. @kspenmoll @wife 8mo

I really enjoyed this one by Seanan McGuire. I listened to the audiobook version and it was well done like her Wayward Children series. I liked the world the author built and how the story came together.
