Jumping RIGHT into book number two! I‘m listening to the audiobook this time around. I‘m hoping I enjoy it as much as reading a physical text version! #audiobook

This was soooo gooooood!! 😍 A bit heavy on centering White Christian culture, and it got annoying to constantly read about how “plain” the main character was, but besides those two things I absolutely loved this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Loving this second book in the Playbook series! I‘m about halfway through. It‘s different enough from Intercepted that I‘m not bored, but Alexa still has the same fun dialogue and character development. #romance #audiobook

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5! I thoroughly enjoyed this memoir! Tan‘s voice is amazing and the book is light hearted and fun while touching on some more serious aspects of his life. I feel like it didn‘t go as “deep” as Karamo‘s memoir, but that doesn‘t mean it‘s any less substantial. I actually kinda enjoyed this book a bit more! #audiobook #queereye #litsyAtoZ

squirrelbrain I just got Karamo‘s book on Kindle, but haven‘t read it yet... I really want to read this one too. 3mo
thelizflynn @squirrelbrain they‘re both really enjoyable and fun if you‘re a fan of the Fab 5! 😊 3mo

3.75 stars. I love every member of the Fab 5, so I went in knowing I‘d enjoy this book. There were some parts of Karamo‘s story that seemed glossed over and self-serving, but all in all it was an informative memoir about his life growing up, his career, and his experience becoming a father. #audiobook #queereye

3.75 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Scenes that were steamy enough to put the book in the freezer afterwards, plus well developed characters and a plot with substance. I really liked the little plot twist at the end. #audiobook #romance

Meh, it was alright. The characters were two-dimensional and the plot was so-so. Entertaining enough to finish it, but not good enough to recommend to anyone.

I listened to this on audio and it was so, so good. I love all of Rainbow Rowell‘s books, I‘ve come to learn. She captures the feeling of young love and being a teenager/young person so well, I can‘t help but fall into her stories. #audiobook #litsyAtoZ

“Ghost stories are about how we face, or fail to face, the past- how we process information, how we narrate our past, and how we make sense of the gaps in that history. Besides, even if we could dispel them once and for all, we need them too badly.”

Boxers | Gene Luen Yang, Lark Pien

Pickpick

This was a very interesting history of the Boxer Rebellion. US students (at least where I went to school) learn about this period of Chinese history only briefly, and of course the brutality that people lived through and experienced is glossed over in textbooks. I went ahead and borrowed Saints from my library right after I finished this!

ClairesReads Cool- I‘m looking forward to reading this one soon 1y

This book was fine. It‘s a fast-paced page-turner with lots of twists and turns. Also- kinda creepy would not recommend if you don‘t like scary movies and would not recommend reading this when you‘re alone in your apartment trying to go to sleep. 😳

I haven‘t read literary fiction like this in a while. It‘s nice to be back, even though this story is about the horrific cruelty of Spanish colonizers.

This book was a lot sadder than I was expecting 😳 I did enjoy it, but it‘s the kind of book I wouldn‘t recommend to just anyone. There‘s a lot of trauma. #audiobook
