I don't know how I'd live without books. Many people, myself among them, feel better at the mere sight of a book.

1. I'm a big mood reader so whatever I am drawn to at the time.
2. No. I don't take a bus/train, but I also get sick if Intrybto read in a moving vehicle.
3. Lots of people around, the dog 🐾
4. Don't really have a certain drink/snack for reading.
5. I'll have to come back to this as I don't know new followers off the top of my head!

Read this trilogy as ebooks, mostly during my work lunch breaks. While there was a lot of teen angst that drove me a bit crazy, I really enjoyed the overall story, the good vs. evil. One girl who has a demon father and an angel mother, fighting within herslef and also against the evil of the world, finding friends and allies along the way. I really enjoyed the development of her friends along the way.

I was really in the mood for a fun, light summer read. I heard good things about this one and found it at the grocery this weekend so picked it up and started it Saturday. I dove right in and it is just what I wanted!

And this quote really stuck with me: "Life can be hard. It's important not to let that overshadow what's good."

Wow, it's only May and we are in the 90s with HIGH humidity. It's miserable out! In other news, I finished this one last night. It was a good book set in space. Nothing overly spectacular but I enjoyed it. Had some similar feels to Hunger Games, but in outer space. I do want to read the next one to find out what happens next on Eden.

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled What city are you in? Sounds like the weather in Baton Rouge where I am! 😓🥵 4d
tracey38 @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I'm in NC, the Raleigh area. Too much for just being May! This is July weather! I can't really take the heat/humidity even though I was born and raised in the south 4d

Evening snack (maybe overindulged a bit) and the end of this book. Really wish I was able to read more than I have lately. I could use the distraction from life and the world.

So I had no idea what I wanted to read next. I decided to start this one again as it seems like a quick read. I haven't read many books set in space but the few I have read I enjoyed. I'm about a third of the way through and it seems like a fun story so far.

Finished this one last night. Overall, I really enjoyed this book from a debut author. I was a quick read and I really felt for the characters. What you see and think at the beginning may not be what's real. I couldn't pronounce a lot of names/places and one character I just gave a different name to in my head when I read 🤫. And I was a bit confused in parts that I didn't feel were explained well enough. But still really enjoyed this one.

This was such a quick read. And I really enjoyed it. I agree with some other reviews that there could have been more in depth information about what brought this all about, and the ending was a little rushed for me. But I would still recommend this book. But be warned that it can bring a lot of anger about how the female population is treated.

Come Find Me | Megan Miranda

Pickpick

This story is interwoven, where the two stories start out completely different. Then they seem to merge and then peel apart again, and you are reading and wondering what is the connection, is it even there, how are they linked. There is still a little bit of the unknown, but I think that may be there intentionally, to leave us thinking. I also find with the books I've read by this author that what you think at the beginning is no what is true.

This is the audio I have been listening to in the morning while getting ready for work. I have enjoyed this series. However, I am getting a nit annoyed with one character and will put that as a spoiler in the comments.

tracey38 What is up with the back and forth of Barrons??? He is hot and cold with Mac, and I get part of it. But then he expects her to act more than human when for all I know now, she IS human. He says she is almost out of chances with him, yet also says he's out of there after they get the book. Yet it's all Mac's fault? I don't think so... 1mo

Just finished this one on this stormy evening. It was an easy YA contemporary that wasn't a typical romance story. It dealt with hard issues, like teen homelessness and the worry of not living up to family expectations. And a lot of it took place in a library! This is the first book I have read by this author but I definitely want to read more.

Home today due to my neck. So reading while laying in bed. I had not heard of this author or this book before but it sounded good at the store. It seems like a YA contemporary with a mystery/haunted theme. A quick and easy read so far. And it takes place in a library! A haunted library maybe?
