A few parts felt too easy/predictable, but overall I thought this was a good contemporary fiction YA novel. It covers important issues such as Philippine politics, the inner struggles of identity/duel citizenship, familial dynamics, & right vs wrong. Some parts the writing was breathtaking, & other times it lulled. I‘d say 4 ⭐️ read.

Crenshaw | Katherine Applegate
post image
Panpan

I was not a huge fan of this book. The content was very heavy for my kiddo & overall mood was extremely melancholy. The story is about a family on the verge of homelessness for the 2nd time & the reappearance of our 5th grade MC imaginary friend, a cat named Crenshaw. I had hoped that Crenshaw was a stronger support & the ending packing a bigger punch to uplift the whole experience, but we were disappointed.

TheBookHippie This is a favorite in the school I‘m at, the kids were so pleased to see themselves in a book. 1w

Wow, this was a stunning debut. The writing was impeccably executed & kept the reader engaged. A murder mystery novel, that is atmospherically enthralling. The reader follows along the MC who is tasked with solving a murder that happens at the end of the night. This character will experience the day 8 times all from the perspective/body of a new host. If you are in the mood for a thrilling murder mystery, check this book out! Perfect fall read.

TheBookKeepers @kellyann28 thankful to have a bookish bestie to read from afar with! Love u! I‘ll mail this back to you tomorrow with all our notes 😍🖤🍁 2w

kellyann28 I KNOW. That very last part of the book really threw me for a loop and I am very curious about that whole set up. Who runs that joint, what's the background scene happening there? Whatever became of Aiden and how does he feel now after the fact? 🤔 Need. More. Info. 2w
TheBookKeepers YES!! And what consequences does the Plague Doctor face? His character background really intrigued me! And Silver Tear was killed within the loop?! Ahhh @kellyann28 2w

Okay I know I‘m likely in the minority, but this is the 2nd Holly Black book I‘ve read & I just can‘t quite get into it. I‘m 50% through this current read and thinking about bailing...

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I didn‘t love this either. Haven‘t tried any of her others (except maybe the first curse workers book - which was interesting but I haven‘t gotten around to reading the rest so...) 4w
TheBookKeepers @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I read Cruel Prince & didn‘t like it either. It wasn‘t awful....just more like “eh” IMO. I know many ppl love her books, so maybe it‘s just me 😅 4w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @TheBookKeepers, nahhh, I think she‘s probably one of those authors I would have connected with if I was a teen when I first read her books... I feel meh about so many popular authors (Holly Black, Cassandra Clare, Sarah J. Maas) and I‘m becoming more ok about it 😂 4w
Johanna414 I struggle with her books - I usually really like the beginnings and then lose interest a third or halfway through and never finish them. The Cruel Prince is the only one of hers I‘ve finished so far, and I didn‘t love it. 4w

I‘m obsessed with this (new to me) series of children‘s biographies! Most focus on females, though the author is coming out w/ more male bios. Mary Shelley was my 1st bc I love her life story, & then I read this one about Zaha Hadid. I had no previous knowledge of this architect, but so happy to now know her story! Def. check out this series if you are looking for a children‘s biography book appropriate for all ages! “Little People, Big Dreams”

Angie Thomas is such a wonderful author, in that her character development is always on point. This story also touches on social issues such as poverty, mild drug usage, gang violence, & media representation of black & female rappers. I loved listening to the audio version of this book, & think it added a fun element especially around the rap scenes. It was a good read, but THUG still has my heart!

I loved this vibrant book of children's poetry! The pages come alive as the seasons begin to change, and the imagery pairs wonderfully with each line. Beautiful illustrations and excellently composed poems. I really loved how at the end of the book it shows the full poems from where the exerts were pulled from and a thumbnail of the illustration used to convey that poem. Great book!

Jess_Franzino Almost done with this book (had a VERY scant amount of reading time over the past 4 days). Soooo good! Hm. This actor looks a bit too healthy for Ceren and his hair isn‘t long & pale enough. He actually looks a bit like how I picture Talin 😃 2mo

I really wanted a fierce female MC & details about her impact on the Revolutionary War. This book instead provided a day to day insight into life as a colonist & the immigration of an Irish Presbyterian family. Kate wasn‘t clearly the main character until the end of the book, & her activism in the war was interesting but short. The writing style was comprised of very basic sentences that were short & choppy. Not awful, but not one I‘d recommend.

As a Christian adoptive mom, this book didn‘t live up to my expectations. It focused A LOT on quoting scripture. More so than I think was needed to support the claim that as Christians we should care for orphans. Most atheists & agnostics would agree that we should help orphans - spiritual beliefs aside. Begin with a personal antidote, relay a full bible study, close with reiterating the connection of the antidote & scripture - a sermon in print🙄

TheBookKeepers I think if you were a pastor or church leader needing biblical support for starting an orphan ministry then you would like this book. I didn‘t feel like it laid out details of how to start that ministry or roles to help get members involved in. More of a starting board. 2mo

Such a poignant & relevant story for our times. Discussions about racial profiling, underlying racism, & police brutality that needs to be discussed more. This should be a mandatory reading in schools as it contains so many themes & elements often brought up in actual cases each year. Young people, old people, everyone should read it and share it. Beautiful writing. I listened to the audiobook version which had phenomenal narration as well.

Of Mice and Men | Steinbeck

Mehso-so

Wow. So many feelings for such a short book. Not quite sure what I think. I definitely needed a trigger warning about animal abuse 😬☹️😢

Tamra It packs an emotional punch! I recommend the movie too with Gary Senise and John Malkovich. 3mo
jchawkins Things I, as a person who knows nothing about this book, am irritated by: a cover that says “Of Mice and Men“ and shows pictures of RABBITS and men. 😜 3mo
Callemarie Agree with @Tamra the movie is great!!! 3mo
nikkiy_reads I read this in 8th grade. First book I read with a curse word...lol 3mo

I loved the first part of the story w/ the circus descriptions &storyline, but once the MC went to school it seemed like her whole circus life disappeared. She doesn‘t communicate with her old friends, aunt, trapeze mentor, or anyone until the last few chapters. She doesn‘t seem to miss trapeze itself& her confidence from the first chapters vanishes completely.

The story left me wanting in several areas, but wasn‘t down right awful either.

Loved this series! Fantastic buddy read with my bestie @kellyann28 ! She definitely helped me process & grasp all the perplexing pieces of the story! If you‘re into sci-fi/fantasy and haven‘t read this story then go check it out! Excellent writing & world building.

GypsyKat Great series! 4mo
kellyann28 I plan on responding to your email you sent about the end, I just haven't had a spare moment yet to sit down and do it. Sooooon! 3mo
TheBookKeepers @kellyann28 no worries babe! No rush on my end 😊 3mo

The cover of this book kinda drives me nuts. 1st off, the MC does trapeze not aerial silks. 2nd, she has brunette hair not blonde. 3rd, she performs with a tight pony not hair worn loose. Who approved this cover image?! Ok sorry rant over lol!

ReadingRover I HATE inaccurate book covers!!! They make me crazy!!! I‘m so glad there is someone else who notices and feels the same way! 4mo
