3 1/2 ⭐ out of 5 ⭐
This book had a lot of potential and packed a lot into maybe not enough pages? I would have read more.
I liked the main character but the side characters were not as complex.
Still a pretty good, fun YA contemporary!

Absolute favorite was The Gherin Girls by Emery Lord

Trollkonstnaren Is it more traditional ir modern? 1mo
glitterkitty459 @Trollkonstnaren I'd say both. There's some historical fiction stories and then some stories set in modern day. Hope this helps! 😊 1mo

This book took me a long time to finish, but I'm glad I did. 3⭐ mostly from the plot being confusing- I liked the characters though! And the cover is a work of art

I haven't been posting much on here, but I have been reading a lot!! 😊😁📚

Slow-er reading month than the last (and no nonfiction?!) but pretty good overall 😁

Finished the Binti series on audio- it was awesome!

The City in the Middle of the Night really slowed me down, (almost put me in a little bit of a reading slump actually) but I finished it and sadly had to give 2⭐ making that my least favorite of the month 😫

Just wanted to share with y'all my favorite comic I read this month! Another gem from #Hoopla
Definitely similar to LumberJanes (but I think I liked this better??!) The characters and the illustrations had me grinning throughout!! So fun! 😊 I'll be reading vol. 2 soon for sure

Here's a great bookriot article about different portrayals of masculinity in this : https://bookriot.com/2017/05/12/blushing-boys-and-the-backstagers/

cathipink I picked this one up for my daughter bc she works in her HS theater - I think she thought she was too mature for it (you know how teens can be at times) but it looks like so much fun 🙂🙂 4mo

The Poet X was one of my favorite reads of last year, so I was super excited to read this one and it didn't disappoint!!
Such beautiful writing and I just felt inspired by the main character ❤️

It's also a bonus that the audiobook is narrated by the author and she's amazing

Really cool concept and amazing characters!! 😍😍

The plot wasn't the best though. It was kind of just like a series of scenes that didn't fit together. Like a movie maybe?? I would LOVE to see a movie adaptation

Overall a solid and diverse retelling of King Arthur! (in outer space!!) 🌟🌟🌟🌟

A #blameitonlitsy pick!! Saw this one at the library and remembered seeing it on here.
This book is huge! Can't really tell from the picture but it's like coffee table book sized

I wouldn't say I actually understood the story all that much, but I adored the pictures and the setting- alternate 1990s with ominous technology.
And I see the author has other books I need to check out!!

Gina I loved this. I took it to show what happens to societies who live completely by their obsessions. They stop eating, and caring about the real world to the detriment of all. 4mo

❤️❤️❤️ this book!! Really sweet and then also gruesome sometimes?? Almost middle grade but just a touch too much probably (I found it in the YA section)

Medieval history, magical kids and a dog, a lot of discussions of religion (didn't expect that but didn't mind it), and lovely illustrations lining the pages

(Mild-ish content warnings for animal cruelty/animals in peril)

Tungstensmum Oooh, this sounds relevant to my interests. Can you elaborate on how the religious aspects are used? Discussion of religion in general/Christian allegory/confronting the church/whatever? 4mo
Tungstensmum Oh also there‘s a greyhound. And I‘m piqued by any books with a greyhound on the cover (even more than dogs in general, LOL) 4mo
glitterkitty459 @Tungstensmum Yeah! it's mainly Jewish vs Christian faith in medieval europe (one of the main characters is Jewish), Christian symbolism/themes etc. All really well done and incorporated in the kind of quest story.
Hope you like it if you read this one!! :)

Tungstensmum on my list!! Definitely sounds like my jam 4mo

It was pretty sickening to read about the extinction of birds in the past, and today the usage of feathers for such (I think) silly things

I will say I liked the first half better than the second, and that there were way too many characters for me to keep track of properly 😂
Altogether a pick! #classics
