I got a cactus today! I‘ve named him Norman. He looks very good next to my library TBR pile. #cactus #owl #library #tbrpile

SpookyDonut @Smrloomis Thank you! I have so many mugs that I think I will retire this one for Norman‘s home for a bit. I plan on moving him in a few days. 3mo

I loved Goosebumps when I was a kid and I‘ve been wanting something a little lighter to read lately. I figured I‘d take on the goosebumps series and read the ones I loved and finally read the ones I never got around to. #rlstine #goosebumps #horror #juvenile #ebook #libby

The Girl from the Sea | Molly Knox Ostertag

I have seen this on some other book lists previously and was delighted when I found it in my local library. This was adorable and a perfect coming out story. I feel like I related to Keltie more than Morgan; even though I never had a “label”, I was always pretty honest about who I was. I didn‘t know what pansexuality was until the last couple years. Highly recommend! #graphicnovel #thegirlfromthesea #pride #panpride #pansexual #lgbt+ #pridemonth

Started the Sookie Stackhouse books last week! I‘ve been having a fun time reading the first two. I like how true to the book the first few episodes of True Blood were. I‘m hoping the books get better because I hated the ending of True Blood. #paperback #library #bookstotv #trueblood #sookiestackhouse #charlaineharris

SillyLilNillyy Officially just picked up on the 2nd, Living dead in Dallas. Have you started the next? 7mo
SpookyDonut I‘m on the 5th book but got distracted by other things and haven‘t finished it. I love these books though. I feel like there‘s so much missing from the show and so many differences. 7mo

Anatomy: A Love Story | Dana Schwartz

Mehso-so

I forgot to post this when I got it. I was so looking forward to this when I heard about it on the Noble Blood podcast. The ending was so disappointing and left me completely unsatisfied. She‘s writing a sequel so I hope she ties up the loose ends and elaborates on an event that happened in this one. I still recommend it but not as excitedly as before.

TorieStorieS Good to know about the sequel! I felt the same way! 12mo

This Monstrous Thing | Mackenzi Lee
post image
Pickpick

Ya‘ll…this book is fantastic. I went into it thinking it was a retelling of Frankenstein itself, and while it is a retelling, it‘s more of a steampunk retelling of how Mary Shelley came up with the idea for the original story. If life wouldn‘t have gotten in the way, I would‘ve finished this way sooner. It was a struggle to put it down. If you have a love of Frankenstein or steampunk, I recommend giving this a chance. #thismonstrousthing

sprainedbrain Can‘t wait to hear what you think… I love her Montague siblings books and have wondered about this one! 13mo
SpookyDonut @sprainedbrain I inhaled the Montague siblings books, except the 3rd one. I haven‘t gotten my hands on that one yet. I‘m extremely picky about Frankenstein retellings because of how much love I have for the original. If you haven‘t read The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White, I highly highly recommend! 13mo
sprainedbrain I have read that, and I freaking loved it. So I‘m going to trust your assessment of this one. 😉 13mo

Next one on the list! Changing it up a little bit to hopefully lighten up after the dark read that was American Predator. It‘s been awhile since I‘ve found comfort in short stories.

This pulled me out of my book slump! This was all around a wild ride. I‘m devastated at the ending of this case and the fact that this didn‘t get as much news coverage due to a lot of mishandling. If you‘re into serial killers, this is definitely one to add to the collection.

The Waste Lands didn‘t pull me in like I was hoping. American Predator pulled me in right away and I‘ve barely put it down since I started it today.

Feels like it took me forever to get through Carrie even though it‘s such a short book. Honestly, I went into it without knowing anything about it (I‘ve never seen the movies) and I wasn‘t sure what to expect. This is only the 3rd King book I‘ve read so far and I‘m anxious to keep diving into his writing.

Halfway through this one. I‘m really enjoying it. I definitely think it‘s better than The Gunslinger but it has a totally different vibe to it. It‘s been a lot of fun reading and a lot of fun talking to my boss about it, since he got me started on this series. Also, here‘s my face, since the last couple weeks have been excruciating and this was the first day in awhile that I felt completely like myself.

Ya‘ll, I went to the library to pick up a book I had on hold and the used bookstore next door had a sale going on. I picked up these 7 books for 70 cents! Some are out of my normal realm of genre but they all sounded interesting and it‘s always good to branch out.
