I love these illustrations!
My local library‘s Friends of the Library used book sale (AKA my favorite holiday of the year) was this weekend! I got all this for about $15. Yay!
I can‘t believe I went so long without reading this book! I absolutely loved it and recommend it to anyone looking for a little magic in their life.
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. 🏳️🌈💗💜💙
Trying to learn some non-American/European history for a change.
This book was great! The humor reminded me of Douglas Adams. Go read this! Get an edition with the illuminated capitals if you can.

Loving the illuminated capitals in this edition!
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.
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.
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.
Rereading one of my favorite nonfiction books.
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.
This has been on my Audible wishlist for a while, but it's Tor's Book of the Month pick, which means I got the ebook for free! You can get your freebie here: https://ebookclub.tor.com They have mobi (kindle) and epub (everything else) formats. You do have to provide your email address.
