On our holiday trip to visit family, my daughter wanted to read in the car, not realizing it would be pitch black. My son ended up holding the phone flashlight for her to be able to read. Fast forward to Christmas and she got a book light in her stocking. Now she takes it with her everywhere…even in broad daylight 🥰

Cortg Love this! I keep one in my purse because you never know when you‘ll need it! 9mo

It‘s been a hot minute since I last posted on here! At the beginning of this school year, I was overwhelmingly stressed and in a book slump because of it. The last couple of months have been better, though. And now I‘m feeling the Christmas vibes in full effect!

Oh my heart! Please go read this so I‘m not the only one crying while reading a graphic novel. This one was SO good.

gibblr @thegirlwiththelibrarybag Yay! I‘d love to hear what you think. And be sure to read the authors‘ notes at the end. I also just read another one called Snapdragon, which I loved as well...just in case you want to add that to your list! 😊 1y

How can I tell her to go to bed when it‘s summer and she‘s reading?!? I can‘t!!! 🥰 (She‘s reading the tagged book.)

BookishMarginalia 💜💜💜 1y
janeycanuck I heard (or read or something….) someone the other day say they don‘t do bedtime in the summer for their kids. After regular bedtime, the kids can stay up as long as they want, as long as they are readying. It‘s a win on two fronts - 1. They are reading and 2. They sleep in the next day. 1y

Tiny little book that packs a big punch. It‘s amazing how a few words can hold so much meaning and be so powerful. Of the three poems, American Bullet Points hit hardest.

How has it taken me this long to read this book? You know, given all that happened with #georgefloyd I was reading this and thinking ‘my god how did Angie Thomas predict this?‘ But the cruel reality is she didn‘t. Sadly, it‘s the same real life story over and over and over again without any change in narrative. #useyourvoice #blacklivesmatter

WanderingBookaneer This page crushed me. I was sobbing for the last 10-pages of that book. 2y
gibblr @WanderingBookaneer I did the audio, but when I heard this I said “oh shit” out loud and went and retrieved the book to actually read the words. I def cried multiple times in the one. 2y

Yes, I know I‘m reviewing the third book in the series while sharing a pic of the second book in the series. I just thought this cover went better with the watery motif 😂 This trilogy was one I had put off forever, and then I ended up flying through all three in a week. It was full of trickery, scheming, and twists. If you‘ve been holding out, take my advice and read it!

Pickpick

“I just really need it to be a love story. You know? I really, really need it to be that...Because if it isn‘t a love story, then what is it?” Not completely what I expected, but still liked it. A format that gives the reader insight the main character isn‘t capable of gaining. As in real life, memories and experiences are often clouded. The presence of both flowers and thorns, indistinguishable to those who live through such events as these.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Beautiful photo ❤️❤️ 3y
abookishbutterfly That is really such a heartbreaking excerpt. Sometimes we really just want to believe something so badly because facing the truth of it is too painful; too impossible to process. 3y

About to finish this ARC of Ink in the Blood. I have mixed feelings about it so far, but that could be due to the fact that it has taken me forever to read. I started a new job after the new year and my reading rate has suffered immensely. This will make five books for February, which feels like failure to me. Here‘s hoping March is better!
