The Change: A Novel | Kirsten Miller

This was the best book that I've read in awhile. I'm in my forties & really needed a break from teenage & twenty something heroines. Three women: Nessa, Harriet & Jo who are all going through the change & developing magical powers that they use to solve the murder of a bunch of dead girls.

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!!! 1mo
5feet.of.fury YES. I am 37 and I can take a young protagonist in a fantasy book if it‘s good but sometimes it grates on me, and I hate reading thrillers or procedurals and the chief of police, head medical examiner or lead detective is 25. I enjoyed this break away from the traditional “discovering your power age group” 1mo

I was pretty excited to pick up the next installment of the Leaphorn & Chee series. There was good pacing here, and even though there was still a bit too much of Chee mooning over what to do about Janet, I really enjoy exploring his desire to balance his religious beliefs with his police work. At one point, he is trying to explain to Janet how he defines the Navajo concept of “hozho,“ a sort of state of harmony and balance. He says ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) “[an example] - terrible drought, crops dead, sheep dying. Spring dried out. No water. The Hopi, or the Christian, maybe the Moslem, they pray for rain. The Navajo has the proper ceremony done to restore himself to harmony with the drought.“

Chee's genuine belief in the traditions and ceremonies of the Navajo are balanced by the more pragmatic Leaphorn who, while not scornful, is definitely skeptical. I'm really enjoying this series ⬇

I don't typically read contemporary romance but I loved this book. Eva writes supernatural romance novels. It started as a way to get over her lost love Shane. But now he's back. I wish Eva's books were real, especially the last one.
Can't wait for the discussion #Summerheat

This was my May #LMPBC read. It took me a little while to get into - the book starts slow and Kristoff uses copious footnotes in Part 1 so a LOT of tiny print!! But after that the pace began to pick up and I found myself really invested in these characters and what was happening. The world-building was vivid and engaging and I found the concept of sand krakens to be delightfully terrifying. This is a little darker than my usual fare and I'm not ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) sure I'll finish the trilogy, but it was still a solid pick. Keep in mind this is definitely adult fantasy rather than YA.

@Laughterhp I'll let you know when this one is headed your way!!

Nessavamusic Nice! I think I read that one a while ago, but I‘m not sure, may call for a reread. 2mo
Chrissyreadit I agree- I doubt I will finish the trilogy but glad I read it. The footnotes irritated me a little bit. 2mo
BookwormAHN I was torn between thinking they were entertaining and ridiculous. 2mo

My final review as this will finally catch me up!! Woohoo!!

I really enjoyed these short stories, but I think it's because I read them in their recommended order scattered throughout the series instead of just sitting down and reading them all in one go. Interspersed, they added background and depth to the main books. As a collection, they aren't in any order that I can tell and I think they would lose a lot of their impact. I especially enjoyed⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) the final story, set after the Wires & Nerve graphic novels, that serves as an epilogue for the series and was really fun. There is also a retelling of The Little Mermaid that I liked a lot. All in all, I absolutely loved the Lunar Chronicles and am glad I've been adding these to my permanent library as I go along - I'll definitely be rereading them sometime!

From Twinkle, with Love | Sandhya Menon

This was a sweet epistolary YA romance told through Twinkle‘s diary entries written as letters to her favorite female filmmakers, along with a few blog posts and texts with Sahil‘s perspective. I appreciated how encouraging and supportive Sahil was. Even when Twinkle was making bad choices, it felt authentic to a sixteen year old girl trying to navigate her feelings. 💖

This was a #roll100 pick for March I didn‘t get to earlier. @PuddleJumper

PuddleJumper That's awesome! 4mo
