I swore off of Contemporary YA and then immediately picked this one up and I have no regrets.

Read this morning while hunkered down in the hall waiting out a tornado warning with a bunch of high schoolers. Can't wait to make some of the recipes!

When life is too much, I highly recommend grabbing Anne Lamott and retreating to your mama's house.

Compulsive listening - such a great choice for audio. If you're into true crime, you've got to try this one!

Absolutely hilarious, especially on audio with Fisher narrating. I had multiple laugh out loud moments.

Bad Feminist | Roxane Gay
post image

We've had several emergencies at the library this week including a coworker having a major medical event, leaving only two of us to rebuild and unpack the entire library, all our offices, our workroom, storage room, testing room, and reference rooms. after having flooring replaced. Our hospitalized compatriot had all the directions and hardware, so my boss and I are winging it in true bad feminist style. So far to go and school starts soon!

Such a fun read! Perfect to pick up and read selections from a bit at a time or to plow through in a night or two as I did.

MrBook I like the cover and title 😊👍🏻. 4y

After Alice: A Novel | Gregory Maguire
Panpan

This just didn't do it for me. The author was trying so hard to be witty and clever but I left the book wondering what the point of it was, beyond showing that the author wanted a chance to show the reader that he can play with words.

Jess_Read_This Bummer! This one has been on my TBR list for awhile now... 4y
ChristieStratos I'm only a little way into it yet, but I can't find a point to it, which is driving me crazy very quickly! I have a feeling I'll have the same opinion as you. 4y
MrBook I had the same exact thoughts after finishing it. 4y

Swinging back and forth between light and fun and witty and just trying way too hard. Enjoying it now, but I could go either way.

The Dream Thieves | Maggie Stiefvater
post image

Every summer my husband and I choose a SFF series to listen to on audio concurrently. We're not in the same car enough to try to listen at the same time, but we each listen on our own and then discuss. This was my year to pick and I think the fact that Luke is a book ahead of me says I picked well

There's ugly news very near my town. I wont give it publicity but I'm ashamed of the actions of this man. As a member of the social groups he represents, I apologize for the hate spoken in the name of my Jesus and my heritage. Reading this book now to learn how to defeat the damage done by hate.

Cut Me Free | J. R. Johansson
post image

Not necessarily the most believable plot, but I'm loving the easy read and the soap opera/thriller style. I've been craving some "read it in a day" type books - no mental acrobatics needed and an engrossing story - and this fits the bill.

So much to live here! I've got at least three friends in mind who will need to borrow it as soon as I finish! I love finding a book and knowing exactly who it was written for and being able to pass it on to that person.
