⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — A great fantasy read with magical elements up against humanity! A little slow at some parts, but when it picked up halfway through, it got really good. The ending left me on edge, and I can‘t wait to get the second book of the trilogy. #fantasy #fiction

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — Wow... just wow!! When I bought this a few weeks ago, I really hoped for it to be better than the film. All of my expectations were exceeded and then some!! Makes you think about a lot of things, all on the basis of human perseverance. #day34 #thriller #fiction

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — So I really just read this in one day! An extremely quick read, but mainly because of the fact that it kept me so hooked! Love the many short stories of so many different lives all through the eyes of one‘s perspective. The #polarvortex might‘ve also played a part in the all-day reading experience 🥶❄️ #day30

greenhairdontcare Sounds like my kind of book! 7mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — This book is so interesting! I really loved the different connections between past and present as well as the hilarious digressions. This isn‘t something I typically like/read, but I appreciate Robbins‘ ability to tell a story through imagery and even absurd metaphor. Would recommend!! #day29

C.Perone Robbins is one of the most bizarre and fascinating storytellers. I love his books (except Another Roadside Attraction, didn't like that one too much) 7mo

I start class tomorrow! These are two textbooks for a young adult literature class that I‘m taking. So excited to read them 🤓 #college #day13 #Litsy 📚

dgingo A YA class? Fun—enjoy it! Neither of these are YA books, but I imagine they connect to YA books you‘re reading? What else is on the syllabus? 7mo
kmshaffer The class is actually just geared toward the study of literature in the young adult age group in education— so not exactly the young adult genre! I wish lol! I haven‘t received the syllabus yet, so I‘m not sure what the class exactly entails. Excuse my improper wording! And thanks for asking:) @dgingo 7mo
MelissaSue81 I remember reading the awakening in high school for summer reading. I thought it was going to be sexy and risqué but I was disappointed. 7mo

In the meanwhile, this was a book I finished prior to the new year. I loved how the author represents a diverse community through the stories of people with differing age, lifestyle, and circumstance. Definitely worth the read! 🙌
