🤭 16, I wish there was a way to delay all my electronic holds coming in all at once

#weekendreads @rachelsbrittain

SandyW If you're using Overdrive, go to holds. At the bottom of each book there are 3 options. You want "suspend hold." From there you have a drop down menu. If you are using Libby, go to your shelf and select holds. Then select "manage hold." At the next screen click I the word "active" and then select how long you'd like to suspend your hold. Both of these services keep advancing your hold, so you don't lose your place in line. I use it all the time 3d
chaoticgoodhufflepuff @SandyW Thank you! That‘s so amazingly helpful. I checked after reading your comment, and you can apparently do it in the Libby app as well! Thanks again! 3d

A fascinating look at the beginning of cattle wrangling in Hawaii and the three cowboys who travelled to Cheyenne, WY to compete in the US‘s most famous rodeo.

This also examined the effects on Hawaii‘s people and culture of colonialism, the overthrow of the monarchy, and the forced annexation by the US.

I really love these bits of history that show me just how little I know about the rest of the world. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

A former member of the New York mafia stumbles onto the only black owned and operated hotel in a time when Oregon had laws forbidding from PoC living or working there.

A fascinating story examining racism and transphobia during Prohibition, this does not end wrapped up with a bow. I want to imagine it‘s because a sequel is planned, but the tone says it‘s more like stories like these didn‘t usually end happily or neatly. 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

Magic for Liars | Sarah Gailey

Ivy, a private investigator, is the non-magical sister, hired to investigate a possible murder at the magic school her sister works at. I really loved her characterization.

All the red herrings were given such detail, I was totally surprised by the end reveal! And Gailey‘s world building was so creative and diverse!

I have loved every book I have read by Gailey so far, and this was no different. I really hope this turns into a series! 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

Six of Crows | Leigh Bardugo
post image
Pickpick

In a town ruled by profit, no one is quite as driven as gang leader Kaz. With Inej, Jasper, Nina, Wylan, and Matthias, Kaz sets up the largest heist ever: breaking into the unbreakable Ice Court.

The world building was breathtaking and the story was intense and kept me on the edge of my seat. And that ending! ARGH!

It‘s like Leverage, before they decided to Robin Hood on purpose, in a fantasy Amsterdam, and they‘re all teenagers. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

chaoticgoodhufflepuff Also, I was like 10 hours in before I realized this was the beginning of spin off duology of another series! So apparently you don‘t need any knowledge of the previous series to appreciate this one. 4w

A group of clones with memory problems have to solve the mystery of what‘s happened to them all while dealing with a sometimes helpful, sometimes really, REALLY not helpful AI.

Is this the plot to amazing post-apocalyptic podcast Project Nova? Yes, but it is also the outline for equally amazing space mystery book Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty.

Both stories are fascinating, twisty mysteries, and worth a listen!

After attending a medical magical conference, Dr Greta Helsing stumbles upon a plot for revenge and an accidental ending of the world.

I liked this one more than 1. We explore Paris and more creatures, meet new characters (Parisian lesbian vampires!), and some momentum in a truly slow burn romance.

The characters that affect the plot are still largely & disappointingly weighted towards male in numbers, so I hope that changes in 3. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

The Prey of Gods | Nicky Drayden
post image
Mehso-so

A vengeful goddess, a genetically engineered virus, and a robot uprising make this a very dense plot with a pretty slow start. Personally, there were too many POVs for the narrator to not make them sound different. And I was pretty confused, almost the whole time, with how they all ended up being connected.

I did enjoy the mix of science fiction and fantasy. And I want to find more books like that. I might try this author again later. 🌕🌕🌕🌑🌑

Aru, trying to impress some classmates, lights a forbidden candle and brings a shadow into the world.

I really loved all the female characters, realistic 12 year olds, and the focus on a mythology I wasn‘t familiar with.

I appreciated how the villainous shadow has a much more complex backstory than just being evil. Young readers can handle complex characters.

And I‘m really looking forward to more of Rick Riordan Presents. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

Now that Hideo‘s algorithm is affecting most of the population, Emika must work quickly in an uneasy alliance with Zero to stop him.

I don‘t know why, but this one was much harder to get into. And it felt really disjointed. There were lots of twists, but it felt like each one was chosen to stretch the plot out.

I wasn‘t any more invested in the romance than I was in book 1. Emika works best as a MC for me when she‘s with her friends. 🌕🌕🌕🌑🌑

The world has fallen to the zombie infestation, and some civilian fighters are cleaning Manhattan of the stragglers.

Something that doesn't change, no matter what you're reading, Whitehead's mastery of the English language is breathtaking.

Unfortunately, that couldn't really save this book from a dull protagonist, confusing flashbacks within flashbacks, and the fact that I really wanted the story that happened after "the end." ?????
