there’s nothing I love more than reading spooky things around the holidays. first snow was yesterday, so this was the perfect time to read this graphic novel! I love this retelling — I can’t wait to watch the series on Netflix. anyone watch it yet? /// read for the @bookriot #readharder challenge: a comic that isn’t published by Marvel, DC, or Image

got this book a while ago from @prairiepathbooks & read it for the @bookriot #readharderchallenge — as a woman, this book was something that I needed to read...especially when it relates to how your language about yourself directly impacts those women around you.

ooooh buddy, was this an intense read. I knew it was going to be dense, but it was such an emotional gut punch! I love reading works from authors of different countries because it allows me to gather more knowledge (#thirsty) — this one opened my eyes to the Nigerian-Biafran War. I had no idea about this...at all. the before/during/after with multiple viewpoints was a powerful way to learn. /// read for the @bookriot #ReadHarder challenge: postcolonial literature

what a good book! I can’t wait to follow up with Muse of Nightmares. I loved that this was a romance, a story of trauma, and an adventure tale of magic all at the same time. I loved Lazlo & Sarai and can’t wait to see how they end up!

@andersonsbookshop does it again! loved getting to hear from @lainit about her writing process, her books, and more! she’s absolutely charming and didn’t even seem to mind when I said I’m only a third of the way done with Strange the Dreamer! 🙈

the @bookriot #readharder challenge really rested me this year — tasked with reading a book I didn’t like/didn’t finish in high school, I immediately knew which one I’d choose. I absolutely loathe The Scarlet Letter then...and strongly dislike it now. I enjoyed most of the books read in high school but this one was the outlier. well, having read it again...nothing’s changed too much — other than the relief that it’s over! ▪️▪️▪️
what assigned book in high school was your least favorite? have you tried rereading it as an adult?

I recently moved and am still working on figuring out the best places for my books (there’s so many 😭) but here are the essentials! we’ve got my October TBR to the left, my @bookriot #ReadHarder completed in the middle, and the Read Harder books that need to get read by December 31st! woof.

“Anoshe was a word for strangers in the street, and lovers between meetings, for parents and children, friends and family. It softened the blow of leaving. Eased the strain of parting. A careful nod to the certainty of today, the mystery of tomorrow.”

this series has been an easy 5 star read — each installment pulls on the depth of the previous book, both with characters and plot. I have loved reading about Kell and Lila, Rhy and Luc...I am so sad that this series has ended but so thankful to have read it!

in a world where a lot has gone up in flames, the bright spot in my life was getting to meet one of my favorite authors, @veschwab, the master of morally ambiguous, complex, somehow lovable characters. I got eight books signed and somehow managed to not cry when meeting her. 🖤🖤 @andersonsbookshop

“There’s Dull London, Kell London, Creepy London, and Dead London,” she recited, ticking them off on her fingers. “See? I’m a fast learner.”
🖤🖤🖤
THIS BOOK THOUGH. I read it for the first time two years ago and loved it but haven’t gotten around to reading the whole series until now. CANNOT WAIT!! Lila Bard is everything, honestly.
🖤🖤🖤
do you love VE Schwab as much as I do??

so mystery is NOT my genre...but Bluebird, Bluebird worked for me! I loved the swampy atmosphere and the familiar characters. being a Texas girl, this book felt genuine. it examined race in an unapologetic manner — made me uncomfortable at times, but I couldn’t put it down. /// read for the @bookriot #readharderchallenge : mystery by an author of color/LGBTQI+
