A Wish in the Dark | Christina Soontornvat
post image

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander month so that our theme this Monday! #AAPI

Christina Soontornvat wrote the tagged book- a Thai-inspired retelling of Les Mis with magical elements that rocked my world and in doing so became a must-read author for me! In this version, the daughter of the prison warden hunts down a prison-born boy who is trying to escape his doomed life.

What titles would you recommend for #MiddleGradeMonday ?

Weyward: A Novel | Emilia Hart

I usually don‘t agree with most of the Goodreads Choice Awards winners & often haven‘t read a lot of the nominees, but this year I had read quite a few & these three #AwardWinner titles for Science Fiction, Fiction & Weyward for both Historical Fiction & Debut ended up on my Best of 2023 lists too.🥇🏆 👑

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I didn‘t love Yellowface.. loved the other two! 2mo

#SpringSkies Day 21: This one is an #AwardWinner - the lotus ice cream cake and the book both which won the Goodreads Choice Award for Fantasy. Loving it so far and I am trying to prolong it as much as I can so that I don‘t get to leave the Daevabad world yet. 😭

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Gorgeous 🧡 2mo
