This stack is all the physical books I'm thinking about for #24in48 ! I know I won't get to them all, but I'm excited to see how much reading will happen
I really enjoyed this collection of short stories! I read about one a day before going to bed and it was a really nice way to end the day, learning more about other cultures while reading great plots and characters. Of course, there are some I enjoyed more than others!
Umm! Wow this book was so spooky and amazing! It really breaks down the effect the internet is having on politics and global connections. I learned so much from this book and I'm definitely going to think more critically about how I interact with social media from now on. There were so many little surprising details that I kept having to read aloud to my roommate!
AHHHH this book murdered me. I wasn't sure what direction it was going to take, so every moment was suspenseful. I saw part of the ending coming, but the other part absolutely floored me and now I can't wait for the third and final book! What am I supposed to do before then?
This was such a sobering read. It's hard to imagine what these women went through as they slowly and painfully died from the radium paint their bosses told them was safe. There were a few times I was reading this in public and couldn't help but tear up as I read about the ways they died from an incurable poison.
Aww this was such an enjoyable end to this companion series! I'm really happy to have read this, and I think the slight supernatural element was really funny and fit with the tone of the story. #NewYearWhoDis @AsYouWish
Wow this made me super nostalgic! I remember as an elementary schooler seeing this play performed by the older kids. I definitely noticed a lot more how weird some of the events are, but it made me laugh. The songs sang by the Oompa Loompas we're very entertaining to read as well.
Read through #newyearwhodis for @AsYouWish
Aww yay! I read this for #NewYearWhoDis and really enjoyed it, it was super interesting and really unexpected. I love the main characters and their chemistry, even with their pasts getting in the way sometimes. @AsYouWish
So I guess this is probably my last read of the year! This reread was a lot of fun, it's definitely a very slow-moving story but was much easier to read another time around. I'm excited to reread book 2 then finally continue on with the rest of the series!
Whoo. I spent almost 8 hours today finishing up this audiobook! Even with listening to it at 2.75 speed, it took me a while to get through! Rereading it, I still enjoyed it just as much as the first time, maybe more as I was trying to figure out foreshadowing for both the ending and the 3rd book(which I'm hoping to make my 1st read of 2019!). I'm not sure I'll get any more reading done tonight because of the emotional toll!
My read tonight! I got about halfway through it, which I am satisfied by. I need to head to bed but can't wait until tomorrow to continue reading it!
There was an adorable romance. But for me, the stars of this book were the incredible development of the main character and her relationships with her Dad and new coworker Rose. I love how much Clara learned about herself and what she really values in life!
Wow I'm really enjoying this fantasy series! I was so concerned with how everything was playing out. I felt so intensely for all of their characters and their individual plotlines, I am very excited to read the third and final book.
I was expecting a lot more from this! I think the plot was definitely very interesting, but the space/alien jargon was such a labor to get through I never wanted to pick it up. The ending was pretty entertaining.
I feel like I've only been able to read audiobooks lately?? It's annoying but oh well.
I love this series/universe so much!! I loved the development of all the characters, especially Prim and Percy. I can't wait to see what happens in the last book, and I wonder if there will be any more series in the universe?
Hmm if this isn't my favorite book, it's definitely close. I can't help but absolutely love every single part of this novel! The world is so whimsical: man-eating water horses that are raced every November. Sean and Puck, the main characters, have such chemistry. I love their individual plots and their plot together!
The audiobook is a great way to read it, all the music heard is composed and performed by the author herself.
Here's my current read! I've been wanting to check it out from the library for about a year and it was finally just sitting there. I'm about 120 pages in and am highly intrigued.
I read a bit of poetry at the library today!
