A funny illustrated memoir by cartoonist Allie Brosh! Not all of it was funny, but it is still worth the read!

I found this author by chance on Instagram a few months ago and bought this hardcover for myself for Mother's Day last week. I found the poems to be wildly approachable and I loved the bits of memoir text in each chapter!

My youngest graduated high school tonight and I'm so proud of her!

Tagged is the book I'm currently reading, but the title is appropriate for the occasion. 💜

The Queen's Gambit | Walter Tevis

I know very little about chess, but this book was so engrossing for me! I read half of it in one sitting (staying up way too late to do so). The edition I have needs an editor, and that was a bit distracting. Overall, the book makes me want to watch the Netflix series just to keep going.

I liked most of the story, enough to keep reading even though I wanted to quit about halfway through. I didn't like all of the sentence fragments that the author wrote.

I loved this book! I liked how Kate Quinn wrote the different points of view for Charlie and Eve and how she tied them both together at the end. The Author's Note at the end of the book was fascinating as well.

Hilarious anecdotes from Colin Jost's life! I love him on SNL and he's just as funny throughout the memoir.

At times this was a confusing read, there were extra characters that seemed out of place and the pacing was weird. Overall a great premise though and I will probably read more in the future from Harris.

To me, this story started out slowly, but then picked up the pace and was much more readable. It's a story of a 14 year old girl addicted to meth in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and her road to happiness.

I made it 34% of the way through and I'm not invested in the characters. I feel like the plot is generally predictable, based on the way it's set up. This would be a great book for people who like YA that has magic!

The Chase | Clive Cussler

Fast-paced adventure novel with a tiny bit of romance thrown in for good measure. This was a Christmas gift from my sister-in-law, otherwise I probably wouldn't have picked it up. It was good, but I don't know yet if I'll continue the series.

The book started off slowly but gained momentum and ended well. The author wrote extensively about medical advancements in the beginning and then tied it in to the history of the hospital and I found it somewhat monotonous. I learned a lot of new words and a history of a hospital I hadn't been very aware of.

I've decided to start highlighting words that I have to look up this year. I like learning new things!

KellyK I‘ve put a vocabulary spread in my reading journal to keep track of unfamiliar words and their definitions. 4mo
WorldsOkayestStepMom @KellyK that's a good idea! 4mo
DivineDiana I tried to keep a small notebook to write down those new to me words. Problem was I didn‘t alway have the notebook while reading! 😂 4mo

I loved the characters and was invested in what happened to them! The plot sometimes moved slowly, but I didn't find it unbearable and I learned about a civil war I had no previous knowledge of. I will also add that my version (Kindle) could have used some editing and that was a tad bit distracting to me.

Had some good information in the first 10%, but also a lot of flowery prose that made it hard to get into. DNF this one.

I've bailed on so many books this year. 🤦‍♀️😭
