In this modern-day suburban town, one percent of all fatalities come about in the most peculiar way. Deaths--eight-foot-tall, silver-gray creatures--send a letter ("Dear So-and-So, your days are numbered") to whomever is chosen for a departure, telling them to wrap up their lives and do the things they always wanted to do before they have to "depart." When sixteen-year-old Gabriela receives her notice, she is, of course devastated. Will she kiss her crush Sylvester before it's too late? Friendship, first love, and fantasy artfully mesh in this magically realistic world that ultimately celebrates life.

So this was a fun reading month 📖🥰.

April's reading challenge was Fantasy books and here are all the fantasies I read!

Wolfsong is basically second to none 🐺. And Eliot Grayson's writing was fabulous as always 👍.

I still have 2 books to review for this month, but yearly wrap-up is on my mind.

I read 165 books this year trying to keep myself inside and safe during this wild world we are living through means I got to really dig into my TBR!

I read some insanely fantastic books and some really terrible ones. Some I didn't remember until I looked at my list :)

fredthemoose What were some of the insanely fantastic ones? 9mo
fredthemoose (Also, amazing year! 🎉) 9mo
ChaoticMissAdventures @fredthemoose OH! I am going to post my top 20 of 2021 soon. But SO many were good it was hard to pick.
Non-fiction - Empire of Pain & How The Word Is Passed are both MUST reads. Hidden Valley Road is really interesting if you like psychology
YA- Cemetery Boys, Felix Ever After, & Grown
Fiction - All's Well, Razorblade Tears, Piranesi, Matrix, and the Secret Lives of Church Ladies.

CoverToCoverGirl Well done!👏🏻👏🏻🎉🎉 9mo
fredthemoose Yay! Thank you! I think Empire of Pain was probably the best book I read this year. I‘ll check out the others! 9mo
ChaoticMissAdventures @fredthemoose Patrick Radden Keefe is amazing, He has a new one coming in 2022, and if you have not read his other I highly recommend 9mo
fredthemoose One more (probably remedial) question… how did you make the image with all of the book covers on it? (I apologize if this has already been answered 100 times…) 9mo
ChaoticMissAdventures @fredthemoose no problem! I track my books on Goodreads and then I take screenshots of all of the rows (usually 3-4 rows at a time) and then put the screenshots in a free online program called Canva resize as needed then they give you the picture as a pdf. 9mo

My goal in these readathons is simple: read as much as I can, I don‘t know how the week will be. Last week I sacrificed myself😜 and did house chores, not much reading time
But I finished 2 books Which were started before the readathon:
1️⃣Dreamcatcher, my agony this month😳
2️⃣Ella Enchanted
Also, I started one book
3️⃣Truly Madly Guilty (363 pages read during #AwesomeAprilReadathon, finished it early this morning). Splendid ok week😉

I usually don‘t do these, but for the first time since I joined litsy I can actually see the books pile up as I read them. These are all the books I read in March (not including The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents which was an ebook). I know it‘s not that impressive, but I was shocked at just how much I read this month.

I got out of my reading slump this month by re-reading the Veronica Speedwell series and I read some really good ones for book club also: Where the Wild Ladies Are, The Gilded Ones, and Oona Out of Order. I also really enjoyed the Stephen King and think I am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter would make a good book club pick. I enjoyed Glennon Doyle's memoir but didn't feel my life was personally altered by it.

My #FabulousFebruary wrap up. I managed 6 books. All romance but the middle 4 were a reverse harem rabbit hole that I fell down. Guilty pleasure books for sure but there was a intriguing, over the top suspenseful storyline to go with them. I can thank @BayouGirl85 and #NewYearWhoDis for that. I‘ll be starting the next shadow grove series soon. @Andrew65 thanks for hosting-it was definitely one of my more productive readathons!

Best of the bunch the was Tin Man, and Achilles and the Tudor were huge disappointments for me. All the others were fairly solid! #august #wrapup

Sorry I'm so late with my update. I haven't had access to my phone. Desktop Litsy is pretty cool though just not as convenient for photos. Technically I had 2 more days of food logs written down but I never got to transfer them to my FitBit app. Drinking water was very hard this week. But I made my reading goal and finished rereading the Bailey School Kids series! @AsYouWish @bookwormjillk @BookNerd9906 @erinreads #BFC #BFCr4 @wanderinglynn

This was a fun month and I had fun taking part in my first team competition on Litsy with #TeamStoker for #Scarathlon.
1. I‘m currently reading The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh.
2. My last 5 ⭐️ read was Wraith by Joe Hill which I read last night. (3 of the books I read this month were 5 ⭐️ reads actually).
3. I managed to read 14 books this year
4. Up next I‘ll be taking part in Nonfiction November, so I think I‘ll read In the Heart of the Sea first
