I'm so happy I am finally rereading this one after probably a decade... Wow that makes me feel old! So far it is just as good as I remembered! I can't wait to get through the series in time for the new one due out this fall!!

Librarianaut This series is one of my favorites! I reread all the Abhorsen books every so often. 3y
suzannewhtny @Librarianaut They are so good! I can't believe it has been so long since I reread them! 3y

For a homesick Chicago girl who was raised on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, this book was perfect! Totally cheesy, but such a fun read!

BekahB This is the next book I'm reading as soon as I'm done with the one I'm currently reading! I've also heard that this is a good pick for people who loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer. That's pretty much what sold me on this book. I'm excited to start it! 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I'm going to have to check out this book then, love Buffy. 3y
Librarianaut I am going to have to read it, if for no other reason than you have Laphroaig on your shelf 😎 3y

suzannewhtny @BekahB & @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I will say it isn't as good as Buffy, but really... What is?! 3y
suzannewhtny @Librarianaut Good taste 👍🏻 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @suzannewhtny True story! Veronica Mars was a close one for me, more PI than supernatural but the same snappy banter. I'm always on the lookout for a replacement for those types of stories. 3y
suzannewhtny @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I somehow never got around to Veronica Mars, but I have always wanted to. I saw that it was on Netflix the other day. I'll have to give it a shot! 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @suzannewhtny On a quiet day, try the series and see what you think. 3y

What to do when your flight is delayed for an hour: drink beer, read a new book, and keep an eye on the Cubs game.

OffTheBeatenShelf.com I can't wait to hear what you think of Women! I just finished a writing class with Chloe and I really liked her. 3y
suzannewhtny @OffTheBeatenShelf.com That sounds awesome! I am feeling really bummed. I read the first half before my flight and now that I'm home, I can't find it to finish. I guess I'll have to find another copy! 3y

Throw back to one of my favorite pictures of Maud. Her eyes clearly say, you should be paying attention to me and not staring at this rectangle. @Liberty

It has taken me far too long to get around to reading this book, but I'm so glad I did. This book was exactly what my heart needed right now. What an incredible work.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I just read this one earlier this year too, and I had the same thought...why did I wait so long? 3y
suzannewhtny @Riveted_Reader_Melissa it was just incredible! I'm glad you liked it too ☺️ 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @suzannewhtny Yes, I'm realizing how many people of color I never read in HS and trying to include some of them in my reading now. The other one I read and really loved was 3y
LiteraryinLititz I've somehow never read it either, though it's on my shelf. Thanks for inspiring me to move it up in the TBR pile! 3y

I think us here to wonder, myself. To wonder. To ast. And that in wondering bout the big things and asting bout the big things, you learn about the little ones almost by accident. But you never know nothing more about the big things than you start out with. The more I wonder, he say, the more I love

Diane Guerrero is incredibly brave and open about what life is like as a child of undocumented immigrants in the US. She opens a window to show her family's poverty, her abandonment, her ensuing depression and the hard work to build a life of her own. This is a call to action all should hear.

I'm so glad I started this the other day. Seeing the cast of The Color Purple perform at the Tony's last night was incredible and so inspiring. There is power in knowing who you are.

A good reminder on days where bras feel like boob jail lol.

If you want to look at pictures of beautiful dresses by all means check this out. However, there seemed to be almost no character development. I love how graphic novels can use words and pictures to deepen a story, but in this case I fear there wasn't enough story to match the pictures.

Had an awesome time discussing the craziness of space travel with my book club at Bookbar! I love Mary Roach and Bookbar is officially my new happy place!

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I absolutely loved this book! 3y

The second installment of this trilogy is a huge step up from the first! I could not stop reading it! The Handmaid's Tale meets Tamora Pierce. Pairs nicely with a lager and a rainy day.

BookishFeminist Thanks for the reminder that I finally need to read this series! I was holding off on the first book until the second book came out, and now I'm edging closer to the third's release 😳 4y
suzannewhtny @BookishFeminist Yeah, I'm terrible at waiting lol. I'm excited for the last one!! 3y
