Fairy Tale | Stephen King

Loved it! I was so excited that King finally wrote another fantasy book. Charlie goes to a parallel universe to de-age his dog and in the process gets tangled up in his own fairy tale 🐕

Despite the ending, this book is mainly fun. In the next books it gets much darker. My favorite part is when Hermione catches Rita Skeeter and the niflers

These are the last two books in the Temeraire series. Both were really good. In Blood of Tyrants, Laurence washes up on the shore of Japan with amnesia. And in League of Dragons, Laurence's memory is back but Napoleon has captured Temeraire and Iskierka's egg and they have to get it back 🐉

Well, they aren‘t bats, but these are my pups- Stella (brown) and Luna (blonde). I decided to #reread this classic for them. #bbrc #picturebook:S #dogsoflitsy

Didn‘t really like this as much as I hoped. Little Lobo needs to gather foods from the food trucks and deliver to the luchadores before their big match. Love that it is bilingual, and that there is at least a partial glossary in the back. But overall it‘s really a very busy book with crowded illustrations that was distracting to me. #bbrc #picturebook:V #bookspinbingo #bingo

Scenes from a day spent with dad & toddler while mom works. It‘ll make the little ones laugh, given the contradictions. #bbrc #picturebook:U #doublespin

Banned Books Week! And my selection was the top challenged book of 2021 🤬. Including a whole diatribe and campaign against this book by my state‘s LT Gov (who sits on NC‘s State Board of Education)

I am grateful to Maia‘s courage to publish this memoir, and I have seen first hand it‘s impact on non-binary genderqueer and exploring teens in my kid‘s friend group. This is MJ‘s favorite book of the year, and I can see why. It also provides ⬇️⬇️

alisiakae So much helpful information and perspective to cisgender parents & others who may be trying to understand what it FEELS like to be non-binary and/or gender queer. Maia explains eir experiences in a way that I think would help a lot of people better understand how gender is not binary. (edited) 2w

alisiakae @LibrarianRyan SO well done! And I loved the books included and mentioned! Added some of those to my TBR. Especially this one 2w
Cinfhen Great review!! I‘ve heard WONDERFUL things about this book!!! 2w
alisiakae @Cinfhen thank you!! So my brave child spoke out with me a few months ago about a town commissioner who compared queer people to pedophiles and predators. Her statement was never aired (part of mine was), but in July she read this book right in front of him at one of my meetings. 😂😂 https://www.wccbcharlotte.com/2022/03/31/huntersville-politicians-get-into-socia... 2w

More love for this wonderful book. It was challenged in 2015 for containing images of poverty & for downplaying American Exceptionalism.

Boots says, “Hiss!!!” to book bans!

It almost took a century to be published, but I am so glad this book is now available in print. It‘s the first non-fiction book I‘ve read that has a first-hand account of the Middle Passage and being enslaved in the American South. Kudos to Hurston for recognizing the importance, and documenting, Cudjo‘s story. The audiobook was extremely well done, and I highly recommend reading in that format!

alisiakae @Cinfhen the audio was so well done! I just wish Hurston had wrote more. 3w
