I like to read, write, and wrangle reptiles.

Probably only reading this because I read the first one, but maybe I feel like I need to organize my stuff better too.

After a crazy summer semester of reading for class (about 25 books!), I‘m happy to be working on my TBR list again.

Brown Girl Dreaming | Jacqueline Woodson

How can I explain to anyone that stories are like air to me, I breathe them in and let them out over and over again.

Such a cute book! A graphic novel dealing with evolving friendships, growing up, finding your passion, overcoming obstacles, and (of course) roller derby!

The Crossover | Kwame Alexander

So I gotta admit, I‘ve never been a fan of basketball, so this book was not at the top of my TBR list even though I hear nothing but great things about it. The reviews are true, though, this story and the poems it‘s told in are awesome.

This book made me mad. It was hard to find a character I actually liked. Nick was cheating, Andy was annoying, and Amy was... well Amy. Seriously, I think I only liked Margot. And don‘t even get me started on the ending. But, I was definitely invested in the story, and I was on the edge of my seat until the very end!

Took me awhile to get through this one. Informative and does well at giving different levels of practical alternatives to plastic.

You guys. This is the most terrifying book I have ever read. Did I predict a lot of the end? Yeah. Did that make it less disturbing? No.

One Of Us Is Lying | Karen McManus
Pickpick

Really enjoyed this one. My one critique is that I listened to the audiobook, and it was a little hard to tell what was dialogue and what was the characters internal thoughts. Also, since there were four different voice actors doing each characters chapters, I would have liked to seen each narrator doing their character‘s dialogue in every chapter regardless of the narrator.

Stardust | Neil Gaiman
post image
Pickpick

So, I watched the movie first, which I thought was adorable. That being said, the differences between the book and the movie did not bother me as much as others. Both versions are good stories. I think the book did a better job of handling the Tristran/ Victoria plot line, but I was disappointed that Captain Shakespeare was not in the book at all.

jwashreads This book is one of the few examples of me liking the movie better than the book. It almost never happens! 1y
wingedsnails @jwashreads It‘s super rare but it does happen! Howl‘s Moving Castle is another one for me- just because the movie and book are so different. 1y
jwashreads @wingedsnails I watched that recently and I really need to read the book! 1y

This book. Read this book. Reread this book. There were sooooo many things I missed on the first reading (shoutout to Watchmen Club for really enlightening me on all the intricate details that were included in this novel). Seriously, read this book.

The Shining | Stephen King
Pickpick

Wow. Just... wow. Definitely my favorite King novel so far. I really liked how all the backstory on everything all came together in this novel and added to the creepiness of the plot.

MrBook Great book! How does it compare to the movie for you? I think both are great in their own rights. 2y
wingedsnails @MrBook Agreed! I don‘t remember Danny‘s shine being really emphasized in the movie as much as it was in the book, but it‘s really cool that the movie has so many original, iconic moments. 2y

Well the boyfriend has the flu, which means I get to hang out on the couch. But maybe I will get this finished before it‘s due back at the library on 2 days? Btw, this is the scariest one of the three King novels I‘ve read so far...

Okay so I was reading The Shining before bed, but that got too dark, so I‘m switching to Batman instead? We‘ll see how that goes...

'Salem's Lot | Stephen King
Pickpick

So I have to say, I thought this book was creepier than It. Maybe that's because I knew a little bit more about the events of It before reading than this one, but I also think just the intensity and swiftness that events happened in really sticks with me. Looking forward to my next read by Stephen King!

Allegiant | Veronica Roth

I heard a lot of critiques of this book because of the constant changing between Tobias and Tris. In book form, people who read it said it was difficult to determine who the narrator was. The audiobook has two different narrators, but the constant back and forth I feel is kind of annoying, even with knowing who the narrator is. But, we'll see how it goes!
