I just realized that I posted this as a blurb instead of a review!
I cannot overstate how much I love this book. Dystopian YA with a gripping story. The pacing is perfect, the characters engaging, and the worldbuilding pulls you in to this terrifying possible future.
That's 2 books from different genres to close out this #owlcrateathon!

Just kidding, immediately after finishing Roseblood, I went straight to my shelf of unread books and pulled this one down. This'll meet another part of the challenge, reading two different genres. (The cover choice for this book is weird to me. It really doesn't look like a YA book at all. )

I loved it. I did not expect to, but I loved it.
This is my first book down for #owlcrateathon and the oldest of my unread Owlcrate books. Haven't decided which one I'll pick up next.

My first book for #owlcrateathon fulfills the "read your oldest unread Owlcrate book" challenge. The text in this book is in red, a choice that baffles me, so I'm prepared to bail in the case it causes too much strain.

Truth Or Beard | Penny Reid

I feel like the odd lady out here. My guild/book club adores Penny Reid. I read part 1 of the Elements of Attraction set & haven't been motivated to read the 2nd. The heroines are intelligent, accomplished women who are somehow socially inept (outside of their small friend circle) to the point of being cringe-worthy. This book is off to a rough start for me. Duane & the sexual tension are hot. Jessica is not at all likeable.

My name is not Zenvicious. ?
I named my first MMO character (EQ2) "Vikzen" (because college & then bf liked it). When I returned to WoW last year, my name was taken so I named my new character "Zenvikzen." She's no longer my main character. Now I play a warlock named "Zenvicious," a name I really relate to. ?

I ended up reading a little under 17hrs AND I was fortunate enough to win a doorprize at hour 9! A great first readathon for me. Finished up with a book in Kit Rocha's Beyond series. I cannot get enough of that world.

I love Nalini Singh and her Psy-Changeling series so much. The introduction of a bear clan (a Russian bear clan no less!) was so much fun.

This is my time left, meaning there is no way I'll finish the full 24hrs. I decided to try this challenge last-minute & didn't exactly have a clear schedule this weekend (still more to do). I hope to be better prepared next year.

Switching to one of my favorite authors to try and get motivated again. The last book was a bit of a slog. Got my gummi bears and ginger ale on deck!

Mehso-so

This is how much time I have left. It was easier for me this way. I'm not sure I'll be able to pull off 24 at this rate, but I'm going to try.

I have deep, conflicting feelings about this book. Some great dialogue & intriguing characters. Constant POV shifts (6! MCs each get their own chapters) drive me nuts. It's a long read for essentially no payoff at the end.

I'm having trouble getting back into The City Stained Red so I'm switching gears to finishing off this lovely book.
In a onesie, of course!

ValkyrieAndHerBooks Switching it up is a great strategy for ‘thoning! And if I had a onesie I‘d be wearing it too! Instead, it‘s an oversized sweatshirt and baggy pj bottoms with penguins for me! 1y

Starting off #24in48 with The City Stained Red. I'm in the middle of all three of these, and have a few others I need to finish as well. If I get through all of them I'll pick up something new. I haven't quite decided which book it will be, but I'm considering one of the true-crime books I picked up recently.

4 - Less than a month.

I'm so excited I got an ARC of this lovely debut novel!

It was a great, relaxing read. The development of the characters and their journey to end the plague wiping out their island really drew me in.

It starts slow but picks up the pace and by the end I was dying to know what happens next. Did I mention it's funny? Plus there is a dog and kissing.

I can't wait for the next book!

"A fine bunch of humanity," Natalie nodded. "I'd give anything to treat an ear infection right now."

"An infected cut," Jules sighed wistfully.

"Food poisoning," Natalie said dreamily and lay next to him, intensely aware of the close distance between them.
