The Hazel Wood | Melissa Albert
post image
Mehso-so

I had high hopes for this one. The second half fell flat for me. It felt rushed and a little too wacky for the sake of being wacky. It sounded like something that kid in high school you gave fake drugs to would make up when they were "high." I hope Melissa Albert continues to hone in on her writing style because I still see potential.

One of my most favorite books as a kid found at the thrift store. Picked up this new copy of which the cover is a hell of a lot creepier than the version i had. Gonna read it and then put it in my Little Free Library to scare the crap out of another kid. #24in48 #readathon #littlefreelibrary

I'm not quite done yet, but I already know this will probably be my favorite of the year. Have about a quarter left. Couldn't finish since I needed to pack up my campsite this morning. In bed now and will finish it before lights out.

BookInMyHands I loved this on audio. One of my all-time favorites. 2y

Girl Mans Up | M-E Girard

I have so many thoughts. This book is messy and complicated. People make mistakes in it. People are jerks in it. Not everything ends up in a perfect bow. That's why I loved it. I listened to the audio... so here is a pic of me on my morning hike finishing Girl Mans Up. #ya #lgbtq

Loving this #zine. It is nice to learn about #witchcraft in a way that is not full of woo plus shows practical application to daily life.

Bought this from the National Holocaust Museum. It's beautiful and, of course, heartbreaking. #neveragain

Cleaning out old stuff I found this note from Nate Powell. Back before he was super famous and winning major book awards he was in a goofy punk band I loved called Soophie Nun Squad and we traded zines.

The Fever: A Novel | Megan Abbott
post image
Pickpick

Megan Abbott has just become a new favorite. The Fever is the first of hers I've read. Now I must read everything. This book is a thriller and suspense, plus back stabby teen girls vying for attention, hysteria, etc. The 3rd person POV switches between 16 year old Deenie, her older brother, & their dad (a teacher at their school.) Why are a bunch of girls getting sick with seizures? Why are they all connected to Deenie? Where is Eli's phone?
