The Diviners | Libba Bray

I am ecstatic. I've been looking to buy a used copy of The Diviners for forever and I found this one at my local library's store in almost perfect condition. I can't wait to buy the other books in the series! #thediviners #halloweenreads #bookhaul

GondorGirl My biggest complaint is that they changed the style on the cover art for every book. I just want a matching set! 😭 1mo
demicaractere @GondorGirl yeah, I agree... Tbh I might buy another copy when I get the others so they can match. 1mo
Cheshirecat913 Yay! Awesome find! I ❤ Libba Bray. 1mo

1. Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber
2. The Companion by Katie Alender
3. The Caged Graves by Dianne K. Salerni for a standalone (srs one of my fave books of all time, Nathaniel is so swoon-worthy) or The Diviners series by Libba Bray

I've been reading a lot of YA lately ^ㅁ^

Stalking Jack the Ripper | Kerri Maniscalco

Mehso-so

I don't know how I feel about this one... The chemistry between the main characters really wasn't there and I didn't love the sexism or how the author messed with the facts about the real case.

Stalking Jack the Ripper | Kerri Maniscalco
post image

I am going to finish this book but somewhat begrudgingly... Audrey Rose is constantly putting down other girls and that just doesn't sit right with me. She acts like she's better than them. I like that she wants to be both girly and strong but she doesn't need to put down others to do so. And the constant corset slander! Also I'm not seeing too much chemistry between the two leads. Oh well...

The Companion | Katie Alender

Pickpick

If you're triggered by gaslighting or medical related trauma, skip The Companion. It's well written and that's what makes it so scary. Honestly, this might be the scariest book I've ever read because it's so realistic. It could happen and probably has happened too many times to count. I do think this is an important book for teens to read because it shows blatant gaslighting in action, we can all do to understand that better.

The King of Crows | Libba Bray

I finished the book at 1 am today and now what am I supposed to do??? I wish it was easy to find similar books by *vibe*. I can't really explain it. The sarcastic, cocky dialogue (especially from Evie, Sam, Henry, and Theta) is what I live for. Give me more of this!

The Diviners | Libba Bray
post image

It bothers me that so many people hate Evie as a character. Growing up with ADHD as a girl I've felt all of these things so strongly. You try your hardest to be good or polite or "normal;" in the end you lose track of time or you're too enthusiastic about that one subject or you miss a social cue or you say that impulsive thing. Your brain cracks under pressure and the harder you try the more you fail. The world isn't kind to the neurodivergent.

MidnightBookGirl I love this series, but I didn't realize there was so much hate for Evie. I personally think she's the bees knees! ;) 3mo
demicaractere @MidnightBookGirl So many people I follow on Goodreads hate her. One of them even quit reading Lair of Dreams because of her. I think she's the bee's knees too. She might even be the elephant's eyebrows 2mo

This is my 2nd time reading and I love the whole cast BUT I constantly find myself skimming along until I come across the part of the story with Sam and Evie. They're my favorite characters in the whole series and I definitely have a thing for snarky city boys *swoon*

Kitchen | Banana Yoshimoto

My latest book haul(s). I was so happy to find most of these books at my library‘s used book store. Man and His Symbols was even free since it had been written in with pen! All of these books are recommendations (by title or author) by members of BTS except for The Secret History and Musicophilia. I‘m getting into some new genres and it‘s really fun! Currently I‘m reading Kitchen, such an interesting read. #bts #bookhaul #magicshop #jung

I‘m a bit torn about this one. I thought it was pretty good, one of the better Classics I‘ve read, but would I have liked it if I wasn‘t looking for connections and symbolism to BTS? Maybe, maybe not. Thank goodness I didn‘t have to read when I was in school though. #demian #bts #bloodsweatandtears #hetoowasatempter

I hate it when comments like this take me out of the story. Yes, tightlacing was popular during the time period of this story but it's not like it was the norm for everyone. If you've got a small chest you can make do with a camisole under your clothes and your back will be fine but trust me, not all of us have that luxury. I just don't like this notion that corsets = oppression. #agreatandterriblebeauty #libbabray #corset #fashion #victorian

The Twilight Prisoner | Katherine Marsh

This one was as good as the first one. I (secretly) read most of this at work so I wish I had been paying attention more so I would have something else to say. A cute, short read. The ending made me melt. I really hope Katherine Marsh is working on another one because I NEED to see my ship finally sail.

The Glass Casket | McCormick Templeman
Mehso-so

So much build up for a confusingly jumbled ending. I originally thought this was going to be a retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and there are those elements, but it's closer to Snow White and Rose Red (two different stories about two different girls named Snow White...) I liked the world but not enough time was spent explaining the lore. The romance was rushed, I thought. The chemistry was barely building as the story ended.

I apologize for being MIA this month. Rehearsals for Dido and Aeneas have been INSANE! I play a witch and a lady of the night and I‘m having so much fun! The costuming and staging we‘re doing is so unique. Steampunk is awesome. When I took this picture I had already removed my zip off sleeves(!) but I can assure you they‘re so cool and flowy!! Also, my lips are like that for the whole show, not just for the prostitute scene. #didoandaeneas

We had the luck, if you can call it that, Of having been in love but never lovers... - The Apple Orchard by Dana Gioia. Tonight I attended a recital of music by Lori Laitman. Each of the songs were poems that she set to music; the poets included Emily Dickinson, Sara Teasdale, Margaret Atwood, and the writer of this poem, Dana Gioia. I adore this line. #danagioia #artsong #poetry #theappleorchard #music #bookstagram

I am so happy to finally own this book! It‘s a used library book I got from AbeBooks. It is a shame that it‘s now out of circulation at that particular library but the book is in such great condition (the stickers were easy to peel off of the plastic library cover) and it was less than $4. Also this is one of my favorite books. #thecagedgraves #dianneksalerni #bookstagram #northerngothic #usedbooks #library #own #favorites #abebooks

I really wish my local library's website was more user friendly. It constantly logs you out and there's no way to search by genre. They have "booklists" that are sorted by genre but each only has around 20 books listed...
