Anyone have any recommendations for a 9 year old boy who absolutely devoured Harry Potter, and has read the whole series multiple times? He‘s also enjoyed the Percy Jackson series.
Just finished the tagged book, and it‘s the fourth book I‘ve been able to read for #NewYearWhoDis. The Broken Earth trilogy is soooooooo incredibly good!!! I‘m so glad @CSeydel had these on her list, and gave me the kick in the pants to take these off my shelf and finally read them!! If you haven‘t read them yet I highly recommend that you do!! Pachinko was also so good. It was powerful and heartbreaking and beautifully written!!
Finished the audio for this one last night. This is the first time I‘ve read the book, but I did watch some of the show prior to reading this. I‘m not sure if my expectations were too high going in, but this one fell a bit flat for me. The weird Historical Facts thing at the end really pulled me out of the story. This just edges into a pick for me I think since I found a lot of the story intriguing.

Alright y‘all I need some recommendations for some books for my 6 year old nephew who is having a bit of trouble with his reading. He likes dinosaurs and fishing! Also baseball!!
I finished this one for the #bbbbc and OMG it‘s great!! I love a good heist book, and this delivered on all counts! The characters are great, the universe is great! I really enjoyed it!! 10/10 would recommend!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I‘m not sure how I feel about this one. This had great potential, but I don‘t think it quite got there for me. The characters felt a bit underdeveloped. Also I think there were a few too many things going on at once, so nothing really got the time it deserved. I really enjoyed the premise, though. 3/3.5 ⭐️
I posted about this earlier when I wasn‘t quite done with the book so here‘s my official Pick review. This book is such a refreshing change of pace from your run of the mill YA books. I laughed out loud many times, and I really felt for the main character Genie. She‘s awesome!!!
If you haven‘t read this book yet: why not?!!! It‘s worth the time for sure!!!! ALL THE STARS!!!!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I‘m almost done with this excellent book, and I don‘t want it to end!!!! I need more!!!! If you haven‘t read this yet, then you definitely need to!!! It‘s sooooooo good!!! This should be in the mail soon!!

I‘m really enjoying this one so far! I can‘t wait to see what happens! I have a feeling I‘ll be picking up the next one in this series right after I finish this one! The book is also just super pretty! Also, Walter just wants more scritches.

This book was a very different feeling post-apocalyptic novel. The events that led to the “apocalypse” were suitably plausible and pretty terrifying because of that plausibility. I feel like the bones of this story could‘ve made for an amazing book, but it didn‘t quite reach its full potential. I still enjoyed it so it‘s a pick for me! 3.5⭐️
Walter found his spot while I stayed up late finishing this one and getting my heart absolutely destroyed! I knew it ended badly, but still!!! Even with that this book is so incredibly beautifully written that I love it a lot! All. The. Stars!!!!!!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

🍣Eat sushi and go see a movie and read!!!
Oh no!! I left my book at home, and now I can‘t read it on my break at work!!!!! I wanna know what happens next!!!!!!!
If this isn‘t the most 20-teens dedication, then I don‘t know what is! This was a fun, quick read that gave me all the nostalgic feels. I devoured goosebumps and fear street books as a kid. It‘s super silly, and obviously not the best in horror, but I enjoyed the cheesiness.
Walter says there‘s never enough time for belly rubs! 😂
Never Enough Time, by R. T. W. Lipkin, is an interesting read. I stayed up way too late last night finishing it, and I‘m not entirely sure how I feel about it. I enjoyed it for the most part, I think, so I‘ll go with a pick on this one. 3.5 ⭐️
