✅ Just finished “Mother Knows Best” by Serena Valentino 🧙🏻‍♀️

This was a fun read that expands on the story of Rupunzel‘s mother, Gothel. The dual cover art is fantastic! ....scroll to see the covers in a previous post of mine.

📚I will definitely be checking out the other books in this series. Hope you are all having a great weekend!

✅Another one done for my #riordanreadingbinge 🔱

I absolutely love this series and can‘t get enough of the half blood adventures. My favorite elements from this book was the incorporation of the Pegasi and the epic battle on Mount Tam (which happens to be one of my favorite hiking spots). Highly recommend.

📚Up next: The Battle of the Labyrinth

Loric At 53, I just read the first in this series, The Lightning Thief, and really enjoyed it. Do you need to read these in order? 8mo
TrishMcCallister @Loric Hi 👋🏻 I read The Lightning Thief for the first time this fall and it started my love for all of Rick Riordan‘s books. SO glad you enjoyed it too 😊 I recommend reading them in order for the sake of the characters story lines. It‘s harder to tell in Lightning Thief, but the subplots for Percy, Grover, Annabeth, Luke & Thalia are well thought out and exciting to tag along with. (edited) 8mo

Have you seen these mini prints by Dutton Books/Penguin? It is literally a pocket sized version of the full book. (bookmark for scale) 📙

This is such a great design. The binding is solid and the pages are super thin. I‘ll be bringing this one along for my next flight. 🚀

❓What do y‘all think about these?❓

I am in love with the dual covers for this book! Excited to dive into this while I wait for The Thunderhead to arrive.

Does anyone know how this ‘series‘ is releasing? I‘ve seen this plus 3 additional so far.

Simplykellyk I‘ve read the one about the evil queen from Snow White! I liked it. I Ursula and the one about the beast as well. And maleficent. Almost forgot about that one. 8mo
TrishMcCallister @Simplykellyk Sweet! I am stoked to check those out. I am liking this one so far. 8mo
Simplykellyk They are such a cool twist as to why they are so evil. I‘ll definitely have to check that one out too! 8mo

Scythe | Neal Shusterman

Scythe was addictive! The concept of a future without mortality is so intriguing that it alone will keep you engaged. Alongside that are relatable, complex characters that you find yourself fighting for. This is an absolutely beautiful and poetic telling of our need for the perverse role of gleaning in our societies future.

📗The sequel, The Thunderhead, arrives from Amazon next Tuesday so the story can continue. ❤️

Highly recommend! 👏🏼

Turtles All the Way Down is an engaging and relatable read. This was a refreshing balance of intense inner conflict with equally intense external circumstances. I loved these characters and couldn‘t put the book down.

Highly recommend!

KatieanneF I just keep hearing about this one...I really need to just read it lol 8mo
TrishMcCallister @KatieanneF Same here, I kept hearing about this one and had people recommend it. I decided to binge read it this weekend and it was well worth it! 8mo

These books opened my eyes to a new world...Magonia. A beautiful & fierce civilization of Rostrae & squallwhales living in the sky. There were times I had to re-read portions because of Maria‘s unique writing style, but overall I was emotionally moved by her words, her descriptions of this world and her ability to communicate song as language.

❤️ Magonia, I { } you more than [[[{{{(( ))}}}]]] ❤️

Where is your favorite place to read?

I love to cozy up .... with a comfortable rocking chair, good lighting, a soft blanket, flickering candle and warm tea or coffee. 😌

#whereiread #booklovers #booknerds #bookcorner

inthegreensandblues I love to be cozy and warm too... Most often end up on my bed. I own a comfortable couch and armchair but I live with someone who is always watching TV in that room. 🙄 9mo
jenniferajanes My glider rocker is my favorite place, but I read everywhere. Sometimes I read walking around the house to squeeze in a few more minutes! 😂 9mo
TrishMcCallister @inthegreensandblues Sweet! Having control of the TV and apartment ambiance is one of the only benefits of single life 🙃 9mo

TrishMcCallister @jenniferajanes haha I am so guilty of the walk-n-read. Reading while brushing my teeth, washing the dishes, or shamelessly trying to read through the foggy shower curtain while having to get ready for work 😂 9mo

TheSpineView I love to read outside in my hammock when it is warm. Then by the woodstove when the weather gets cold. 9mo
