Lore Olympus: Volume One | Rachel Smythe
post image
Pickpick

I love this series on WEBTOONS and I was beyond ecstatic when I found out it was going to be physically published! You can read everything that‘s available on WEBTOONS, but it‘s definitely worth owning physically if it‘s something you can afford. Plus you get a previously unpublished chapter that was cut for pacing purposes but makes for a great Easter Egg! Definitely check CWs - but it's all very thoughtfully and well done, and worth the read.

MadelineMcCrae I was so excited to be able to add this one to my shelf! A definite favorite! 2w

Lore Olympus: Volume One | Rachel Smythe
post image

1. Started Lore Olympus this morning! The rest of my Current Reads I started in December.
2. I‘m going to Disney World for the first time next week! (I think I‘m looking forward to and fearing this in equal measures - fingers crossed that all my vaccinations and precautions do their jobs!)
3. Trying to get more comfy with bailing on a book I‘m not enjoying. I really need to get over my DNF shame - life‘s too short!
@ozma.of.oz #SundayFunday

Bookishgal71 My biggest suggestion to you about Disney is to keep your mask on at all times. It worked for us this past summer. You will see lots of people without their masks on (and in the heat of summer it was soooo tempting to join them) but don‘t do it. Have a blast!! 2w
ozma.of.oz Yay! Disney World sounds fun! Stay safe and enjoy your visit! Thank you for sharing! 2w
ValkyrieAndHerBooks @Bookishgal71 thank you! That‘s definitely the plan! 2w
Nessavamusic Have fun at Disney! I have tried to embrace the DNF also. There are so many good things to read, no reason to suffer through a book. 2w

A Longer Fall | Charlaine Harris

The Miscellaneous categories for #NoShameReadathon were harder than the rest for me, they really aren‘t in my wheelhouse.

Western - A Longer Fall (Gunnie Rose #2)
Inspirational - ???

While I think of the Gunnie Rose series as Paranormal Alt History, it‘s totally a Western. As for the Inspirational Fiction genre, I find myself at a loss - I‘ve got nothing. I might just let it be, but if you have any suggestions, I‘m all ears!

Geek Who Saved Christmas | Annabeth Albert

So, I‘ve continued #MyBigGayHolidayTBR this year and it was a lovely romp through a bunch of fantastic queer holiday romances. It definitely made my month and is a nice cozy way to wrap up the year! The Geek Who Saved Christmas 🎄 was very solidly my favorite holiday read of the year. If you‘re still looking for those seasonal feels or if you‘re keeping a list for next year, read this one!

Happy holidays, Littens!

So I reread this on audio and it‘s fantastic! Also, for any Ted Lasso fans - the narrator‘s version of Kit‘s voice is a slightly less gravely version of Roy Kent‘s voice…😚 Also, I remember this being a great book, but it is even more glorious than I remembered! Absolutely delicious! 10 out of 10 would recommend!!!

Soubhiville “He‘s here, he‘s there, he‘s every f***ing where Roy Kent!” And now I‘m going to have to listen to this audiobook! 😊 2mo

In her September newsletter, KJ Charles released a 23 page title that ties up Think of England, Proper English, and the Will Darling Adventures - all in a single epilogue. It‘s not on Litsy yet, though I have suggested it, but it was a nice look into the lives of the older couples and a neat bow on Will and Kim‘s partnership in life and work. An enjoyable read, that happens to be my 100th read of the year! Yay for that too! Read ‘em if ya got ‘em!

Stayed up late to finish this delicious book. I received an uncorrected proof a couple days before it‘s release date, but with an actual wildfire threatening my neighborhood it‘s been a crazy week. A couple grumpy, prickly, soft boys were a very welcome distraction. These two snark and snipe and moon - as they wrestle with each other (literally), the feelings they elicit in one another, and the roles they want play in the bigger scheme of things.

I just got in this early copy in the mail yesterday and I started reading it today! This beautiful romance comes out on Tuesday, and I‘m hoping to have it read and reviewed in time for release day. Maybe I‘ll make it, maybe not. Either way, I just had to share how much I love the cover and how much I‘m enjoying reading this book so far! It‘s already a delicious way to celebrate Pride month and I can‘t wait to see how these two make things work!

I absolutely loved this book! I‘m so so SO happy I picked it up! I feel like this book has been seriously under hyped. I haven‘t seen any reviews from anyone I follow on bookish social media and I hope to see that remedied soon! This is the queer, teen, witch story, I have been longing for since the movie, The Craft, hit theaters in 1996. It‘s raw, unapologetic, and dangerous. I couldn‘t hit the preorder button for The Scratch Daughters harder.

“He knew it was bot his job to make her smaller, safer. It was his job to lift her up as high as she wanted to soar — and to kill anything that tried to interfere.”

And this is one of the many reasons I adore Charles so very much. This is my favorite book so far in the Alpha & Omega series. Finishing up my reread of this in anticipation of tomorrow‘s release of Wild Sign! I am so very excited for this next installment of Charles and Anna‘s story.

No, you stayed up past 3 AM when you work in the morning, to finish up Legendborn, because you couldn‘t stop and had to know what was happening!😅 The threads of this beautifully woven story build an awesome blend of myth, history, and magic, that absolutely enthralled me. I can‘t wait to see what more Tracy Deonn has to offer. She has the chops to be the next juggernaut in YA and Fantasy.

My heart might recover by the time Cole publishes her next Thriller, which I WILL be picking up! With a few exceptions, I don‘t read Thrillers anymore. I used to devour them. But I over did it. And, some of the common elements of the genre, like gaslighting, became too real. It‘s something that makes me want to burn the world down. Definitely messes with me. And while the gaslighting in this book gave me fits, all I can say is “Worth it!”

At first blush El seems like your basic angry teen girl, but by the end of the 1st chapter, the truth of her situation is sinking in and her surly attitude seems down right cheery. By the end of the second chapter I was hooked. I‘m invested in seeing how El develops as she strives to not only survive a sentient school that literally takes it‘s pound of flesh out of the student body and is crawling with flesh and shadow monsters, but to thrive.

This book is definitely the best in the series and therefore a great series ender. There is a lot of material from Angel‘s interactions with our favorite FBI agent that lays out groundwork and hints at possibilities for a spin off series - possibly featuring different “monsters” hiding in plain sight? I would love to encounter future Angel as a cameo in another series! Suffice it to say this whole series is definitely #RereadWorthy
