Who are you? (On the inside?)
The answer to this question was something Yael had to fight for. Her self-reflection was no reflection at all. It was a shattered mirror. Something she had to piece together, over and over again. Memory by memory. Loss by loss. Wolf by wolf.

The Princess Diarist | Carrie Fisher

Carrie Fisher was an INCREDIBLE writer, and I can't believe how long it took me to find that out. Some of the sentiments in here cut surprisingly close to home, articulating thoughts I've had that I didn't know how to express. Thank you, Carrie.

"The night was thistle-sharp, spiderweb-tense. Triss was part of its secrecy and danger now, but she sensed that she was not the most secretive or dangerous thing abroad. The night had no favorites." Frances Hardinge's books KILL ME.

This is a tough little book, much like its leading ladies. It somehow encompasses only one neighborhood in 1930s Sydney, but feels HUGE at the same time. Kelpie and Dymphna are sharp girls full of grit, so different and so similar. I love how the story revolves around them and their strange developing relationship. All of the side characters and history are killer. This book is killer. Oh, and GHOSTS!! 👻

Mehso-so

This book has a lot of hype...that I didn't feel it lived up to. The story is...fine, but the writing felt flat and unoriginal. There were many times when the reader was clearly supposed to empathize a certain way with the characters and I just...didn't. It's fine, but overall the book felt pretty mediocre. Also, can we get rid of the "I'm too thin to be beautiful" thing? Bye.

AWESOME. Want something like Goonies, Super 8, or Stranger Things...but with a GIRL GANG? Look no further. Group of girls delivering papers in the 80s gets involved with time travel mayhem and monsters. GOD the art is perfect. I'm really interested to see where this crazy plot goes!

This Savage Song | Victoria Schwab
post image
Pickpick

I honestly don't know how to describe this book. It's all about humanity in its different forms, some of it monstrous. Kate and August are strongly written, and the plot is gripping. I do think it's the weakest of V Schwab's books that I've read, but it's still great!

Even better than the first!! THE FIXER was fun and intriguing, but this one was so gripping I could hardly make myself put it down. A whole other level of awesome. What can I say? I love Veronica Mars-esque protagonists and political machinations!

Not my cup of tea. It would have been a fun read, but I couldn't get past how oblivious the characters were, and how often there was a very convenient fix for some obstacle. Ah well.
