Listening to a Madeline Miller book is like eating dessert first. An absolute pleasure. My ears are gluttonous. #nowlistening #madelinemiller #songofachilles

Just got this bad boy in the mail and let me tell you guys I‘m ready to get hurt again. The first book was an absolute shitstorm. Not the best fantasy I‘ve ever read but I was intrigued enough to buy the second one. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Sometimes I just like my spice okay? #nowreading #frombloodandash #akingdomoffleshandfire

My picks for BOTM for June. This is me taking baby steps to get out of my spicy ya fantasy hole. ACOTAR ruined me forever. #botm #miamckenzie #nicolayoon

The_Heeler_Booklife Have you read From Blood and Ash? 12mo
bookstoregoblin @The_Heeler_Booklife I have it on hold at the library right now. I‘m ready to get hurt again. 😂 12mo
The_Heeler_Booklife @dimestoregoblin oh, yes you will. I was asking because I wanted to tell you that will ruin you as well. Book 3 definitely will ruin you. 12mo

Finished this bad boy today and I have to say...not bad? Definitely not as good as the first one but it‘s still a fun ride along quest with some stellar characters. Decent character development, even more quirky pop culture references and an ending that I didn‘t see coming but enjoyed none the less. Fully worth a listen because Wil Wheaton turns totally tubular in a come and go SoCal accent that I personally found hilarious. #nowlistening

😭😭😭 Oh this book had me going y‘all! From Lysandra‘s sea dragon fight to Rowan finding out they were mates in the most heartbreaking way ever...uhh I died. With surprise after surprise from Mrs. Fireheart supreme and literally everyone hooking up with someone this book is ramping up for a killer end of the series. Dashing out to read the last two immediately. #sarahjmaas #lorcansucks #empireofstorms

I fucking love this book. I‘m listening to one chapter a day. It gives me something to reflect on throughout the day and apply to my own life and way of thinking. Today‘s thought is: What, in my life, am I willing to struggle and suffer for?

The_Penniless_Author I realky like this. I'm reading The Socrates Express right now, and this sentiment pretty succinctly encapsulates the core tenants of most major philosophies throughout history - desirelessness and acceptance of fate. 1y
The_Penniless_Author I also "really" like it ? 1y

Just signed up for Book of the Month and very excited for my first pick. I‘ll admit I‘ve never read any of the books in this trilogy. I‘ve seen Practical Magic a million times and I do own the book. Now I‘m going to read them all and bask in the magic that is Alice Hoffman. #botm #alicehoffman #magiclessons

Tried to start a book club with my brother. We decided on this series and while he‘s finishing the first book, I “accidentally” read the second one. I‘ve already read the whole series, which I love, and I‘m trying to slow down before I start the third one. However, let‘s be real, that‘s not going to happen. #sarahjmaas #acourtofwingsandruin #readfaster #bookclubfail

Nute Love the whole thing about a sister-brother book club! How‘s it coming along? 1y
bookstoregoblin @Nute I‘ve read like three other books since we started and this kid hasn‘t even finished the first book. Haha But now I have something to bug him about every chance I get. 1y

Queen of Shadows | Sarah J Maas
post image

Obviously this book is wonderful and perfect like everything else Sarah J Maas writes. I love her ability to write complex characters that we see evolve and grow as people throughout her series. The tension between Aelin and Rowan is hilarious. Their band of friends and rebels are endearing and I want to become a part of this court. I'm hoping in the next book we see the Blackbeaks take off and reclaim themselves.

This book was immensely entertaining. Celaena is so grumpy and I wholeheartedly relate. I love the dynamic between her and Rowan. Maeve lived up to all my hopes about how her character would be written. I cannot wait to get my hands on the fourth one. #heiroffire #sarahjmaas

I restarted this one because I got it on Audible. Now I can finish it all in one go instead of waiting on the library copy for weeks at a time. I'm tracking my reading progress with Bookly. Does anybody use that and if so, thoughts?

Just got this gem in the mail. This is the second series I've read by her. Even though its only the first book I'm halfway through and completely hooked. I do appreciate a series with badass female characters that can hold their own.

I started the third book in this series today. I'm quite excited about it. I don't trust a single character in this book. They all have ulterior motives that I can never guess. Usually I'm pretty good at that. It makes this series very refreshing.

Red Rising | Pierce Brown
post image

It's been a hell of a ride with this guy. I've been listening to it on and off for months now. I love that the author can create multiple realities. They all teach a lesson. It's an inception of class systems and hierarchies. How they form within certain perceptive reality. It makes you think about your own place in a society and mindfully take a step back to look at the bigger picture surrounding your own reality. I hope so at least.

The Iron Trial | Cassandra Clare, Holly Black
post image

Started a new series co-authored by two of my favorite gals Cassandra Clare and Holly Black. Another odd ball trying to survive in a school of magic with a ragtag band of close friends. This book is reminiscent of Harry Potter but it's just different enough to keep me interested. I'm baking bread and listening since we're being encouraged to stay in our houses. I guess I'll get ahead on my book list for the year.

I'm having the hardest time getting through the third book. I'm really tired of Mare going back and forth between the two princes.
