Next #thingsincommon is here! There's a lot for this one like both being asian authors, fantasy, and mythology (to name a few). But I'm going to go with: Winnie mentions Spirited Away and "pulling a Chihiro" towards the end of the book, and The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea is ? Spirited Away vibes!! So the connection is anime ?

I had so much fun reading this book!!! Winnie is such a fun character and her love of anime and superheroes really made me swoon. She's got some really smart comebacks 😏 Actually, I liked many of the characters in this book, the adventure was great, and the food DELICIOUS. It got heavy in the end, with the self-doubt and, well, family, but that's how it is 🥲 Would love to read more of her adventures! #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

It's been a while since I last got a physical ARC! Witchlings is a #middlegrade #fantasy featuring three witchlings who have to complete an Impossible Task in order to become a proper coven, and in this quest they learn to be themselves and to trust each other, so cute!! #friendship #family #magic

Remember I made a list of my #bookspinbingo titles I removed from my monthly list? I managed to ✅ two of my January titles this month!! My goal is for this list to be as short as possible. With March pretty much over, the list is now 25 titles long 🫣 better than 27! My April list will have some March titles, some backlog, and some new books I want to read 😊 #amreading

Read this book as part of a blog tour (coming to my blog in April!) and just!! It was a really fun read! I think this book really tackled a lot of different topics like toxic relationships we have with our family, how we sometimes don't realize we are toxic, the meaning of hard work, and more. And it's just also a cute romance and who doesn't like that?! 🥰 #queer #fantasy #youngadult #music #sapphic

I REALLY enjoyed this title, which is a collection of three short stories. It's hard to describe?? Not exactly sad or happy, maybe bittersweet? But also hopeful and just... different?? I really enjoyed it. It's been a while since an author really grabbed me in #manga esp #boyslove but wow, I got hit in the feels! #doublespin #bookspinbingo @TheAromaofBooks

A physical book!! It's been a while lol I've been meaning to read a book by this author and just, the writing is so beautiful?! I felt conflicted with some topics but overall it's a good read. It's about death and grief and a reflection of the relationships we have with loved ones, sorta queer sorta heteronormative, it's complicated... (mixed feels about this) #fiction #japaneselit

March is almost over and I have a feeling I'm probably only going to get through one more book, maybe! So now I'm thinking about April and this looks like it'll be fun 😊 I've tried something similar before but felt it was too constraining but this is nice and open so I'm feeling confident. Also, my March reads somehow followed this game?? I wonder if most of my books are similar regardless 🤔😂 #thingsincommon @Clwojick

Clwojick I honestly think you can almost always find something in common between two books, it might just be a bit of a challenge to think up what the common thing will be! I probably won‘t try to hard to match my books ahead of time, I‘ll just see where the month takes me 😄 So glad to see you‘ll be joining us! 2mo

This was such a delight to read but also full of so many raw emotions. While the initial focus is on suicide attempts and both the guilt we can feel for not spotting signs to anger towards the person in question, there's also a lot more happening, mainly, life continues and Jade, while trying to understand, also deals with finding her own art style and creating meaningful relationships at camp. Nothing ever exists in a bubble and we see it here

Ok but this series has been running for 20 years?! It's been too long since I last reread this and I may be missing something but woah, WOAH. My heart stopped twice while reading this but we also had some cute moments in side stories. Idk how I'm going to be able to take more of these CLIFFHANGERS!! It was very plot heavy volume but we also had a quick smut scene which felt a bit out of nowhere considering the tone (eh for me, don't like fei guy)

OH. SNAP. Why haven't I read this before?! It was so good!! At first I was kind of confused because it seems like it's a video game Isekai but it's more like ppl are actually fighting monsters out in the world. And we just so happen to follow Sung who is weaker than weak. But one day he and a group of hunters end up experiencing something that will change their lives forever. Violent and bloody and dark but oh so interesting, a great first volume

I've heard of this book a few times but never got around to picking it up, then I did for #koreadathon and just, it was so beautiful and tragic and inspiring and just, so many emotions 🥹❤️‍🩹 It's really the story of one boy but the way it's told, it feels like it's the story of two and how they inspire and learn from each other (bc really, no one else truly tries to understand them), amazing story

Ok this took me longer to finish than it should have and I blame it on this week and my nerves bc this was seriously a really cute read! I think the narrator slightly grew on me but I just really liked the characters (very independent and idk cute) and the story was good (end had me a bit 🤨 but that's ok). Maybe I should read other kpopesque stories lol #koreadathon #yafiction #romance #friendship

Kenyazero @coffees I don‘t usually enjoy idol stories either, but I did enjoy this one. It is swimming in idol culture, though. 2mo
coffees @Kenyazero just looked it up and I was instantly like Oh, that one!! 😆 I might pick it up, tbh, it sounds like it has topics that might upset me o(-( 2mo

This book has been on my TBR for a while so glad I finally read it! It was a really good read with interesting characters and an interesting plot, which is "the chosen one" centered. It really ends on a cliffhanger and maybe I was slightly omged by the reveal. Hopefully I can get to the next book soon! More complete review once I read the sequel ?

Omgggg, I can't believe this has just been sitting in my library for months!! It was such an amazing read and so many feels!! Story focuses on how one grieves after a loved one dies but also touches on some of the regrets of the dead party, made possible by #magicalrealism 📱If you like Your Name (anime movie) then this is a good read, had similar vibes, imma go cry now!!

Not sure what to "rate" this. I gave it ? because there's not anything particularly bad about it. If anything, it's very beautifully printed but it's very sparse. The book is only a few pages long and does not give me what it promised me, fear!! Or more than one bit of witchcraft. Instead, it's a very basic talisman stitching book, giving us information on what the patterns mean. So if that sounds interesting, I'd say check this out #nonfiction

coffees Update: apparently the Netgalley arc is not the full version so maybe there's more interesting stuff in the final version 2mo

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I requested this but I was blown away. It was a really emotional read - tragic, fluffy, sad, beautiful, and just so real. A story of two boys who meet one summer and find that they maybe really like each other, but what does that mean and will it change them somehow? Full review on my blog the 25th (blog tour) ⭐ 4/5 ⭐
