I'm mad at myself for not reading this years ago. A very important and meaningful book that delves into the life and loves of Janie Crawford, a black woman in the 30s who longed to be her own person. This is one I'll be thinking about for a long time.

I absolutely loved this book! It's middle grade, but all ages should read and appreciate it's message of acceptance, kindness, and love for the natural world around us. The illustration are delightful, and I laughed out loud several times over the unexpectedly funny and adorable dialogue.

This is a classic for a reason. Sure, it is at times overly sentimental and rather lesson-of-the-week, but the overall message of kindness, love, respect, and duty to your family and loved ones is lovely.

A very detailed and thoroughly researched account of Elvis Presley's humble beginnings and rise to fame. Very fascinating, and I eagerly await the start of the 2nd volume of his biography

My 3rd read of 2017, and the first book completed for the #AtoZchallenge 🙌🏻
A truly amazing and beautiful book about the wonder, mystery, and majesty of solar eclipses. Highly recommended! Brush up on your science before the solar eclipse in August!

You know those books that make your heart race? That make you tear up with the beauty of the words on the page and the images they invoke? That cause you to suffer emotional trauma at the hands of a hardcover (in a good way)? This, my friends, is one of those books. Thank you Lily Brooks-Dalton for writing such a lovely book. I'm so happy I kicked off my 2017 reading with this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I don't know why, but I completely lost it when I got to this page (1,000,000 BCE). Tears everywhere! I can't explain it. Maybe because it's so barren; maybe because so very long ago none of us - none of this - were here. It's quite a thing to try to comprehend. Anyway, this graphic novel is super rad. Snapshots of a single corner of a room, of a same space, over thousands of years. I'll be flipping through this many times, I already know it.

That was a wild ride from start to finish! Was it kinda fan-fictiony? Yes. Did I enjoy every second of it? You bet your Granger-Weasley ass! Ron was spot-on (never change, Ron) and Scorpius Malfoy is one of my top faves in all of HP. This wasn't a perfect story, but I thought it stayed true to the core of HP: love, family, & friends will save you. I would give a limb to see this on stage, esp. the magic bits...HOW?! How is it accomplished?!?!

Made it to the halfway mark! Ended on a high note (opera puns for the win!) by starting The Queen of the Night, which I already love with the intensity of a thousand burning suns. Time to catch some Z's before starting fresh in the morning for another day of reading!

To inspire me while I participate in the #24in48 Readathon, I made sure to situate my reading corner near plenty of books! Directly in front of me are my large windows, which let me see the lovely day outside but avoid the 100+ degree heat! Khaleesi loves when I stay home all day, as that means more pets for her ❤️
