This was a really interesting book! If you like nonfiction about people who have been overlooked by history (a la Hidden Figures), check this one out when it comes out September 10.

I‘ve been in a reading slump lately, but this book got me out of it. Totally lives up to the hype. Alex‘s constant “how did I ever think I was straight” was super familiar to me, and the romance was sweet and compelling. 🏳️‍🌈💗💜💙

CarolynM I loved this one too. It's kind of irresistible. 1mo

If you ever wondered what would happen if the Library of Alexandria was never destroyed, this series is for you! Caine imagines it as a corrupt institution focused on remaining in power at all costs. Great YA series for book lovers!

This book was great! The humor reminded me of Douglas Adams. Go read this! Get an edition with the illuminated capitals if you can.

shanaqui I always loved this... And now me and my wife are on our fourth watch of the series (even though it hasn't been out long) because it's just so FUN and well adapted. 3mo
rkeo I think I'm the only one who was underwhelmed by this book. The humor is definitely 5/5, but the story was pretty bland. 3mo
Hufflepuffle I finished this a few days ago! Sooo good! I had the one with the illustrated capitals too, I loved them! Felt special somehow! 3mo

I really liked this one! I could have done with less about the paleontologists the author knows, but the focus was still on the dinosaurs themselves. The audiobook narrator was also very good.

I loved this book! Space adventures, found family, with just a smidge of interplanetary politics thrown in. It felt like a cross between a Star Wars book and Firefly. I will definitely be reading the next one.

A Talent for Murder | Andrew Wilson
Pickpick

It took a while for me to get into this book, but I did enjoy it. I kept wondering how Christie was going to get out of her predicament. There wasn't always much action but I felt like that made sense with the plot. I appreciated that the author provided a list of the things that really did happen so you know which parts are fiction. Overall, I would rather read something written by Agatha Christie than about her, but I give this book 4/5 stars.

shanaqui Huh. I actually ended up giving up, but I'm glad someone enjoyed it! XD 4mo

I only read this because it fit a reading challenge category, but I ended up really liking it! It felt very realistic, and while there was some teen drama it wasn‘t overwhelming. A little cheesy, but an overall fun read. 4/5 stars, will probably read more by this author.

I loved this book! It was a little more literary than I usually go for, but that‘s part of what made it great. This book provides a great look at other cultures while highlighting the things that all humans experience. 5 out of 5 stars, and I plan to read her first book as well.
