Foundryside: A Novel | Robert Jackson Bennett

"As Sancia Gradi lay facedown in the mud, stuffed underneath the wooden deck next to the old stone wall, she reflected that this evening was not going at all as she had wanted." .... No kidding!

On the Come Up | Angie Thomas
Pickpick

From a stylistic perspective, I think I liked The Hate U Give more - this one was good, and a quick read, but it was a bit more predictable. The story is really necessary though, and the characters are nuanced and well-rounded.

I want to know more about what happens to Pooh, Trey and Sonny too!

Just started, and the first story - "Cougar" by Maria Anderson - slayed me... ??

This book is amazing. What a clear and honest voice Angie Thomas has. Her characters are never stereotypical, and always multidimensional. I really had to sit with, and examine, my white, middle-class privilege. Looking forward to reading more of her work!

RaimeyGallant Loved this one so much! 10mo

The Beast is an animal... You'd better lock the gate. Or when it's dark, It comes for you. Then it will be too late.

Really loved this memoir! King is such a straight-forward writer, and his comments on technique are clear and helpful.

Feversong: A Fever Novel | Karen Marie Moning
Mehso-so

Couldn't quite love this one as much as the first.... Afraid this series may be jumping the shark. Still entertaining but not as compulsively so as the first few.
