A lovely YA novel about taking chances, finding oneself, and acceptance. I loved the art references throughout the novel! Great pick for #SundayBuddyRead ! #BBRC #TeenAngst #ThrowCautionToTheWind

LibrarianRyan I have heard great things about this book. 3w

I admittedly picked this up because of the cover…love it!

YA Fantasy featuring sorcerers and fortune tellers and a MC with a snarky attitude and sharp wit…great story! I breezed through this one and found the layers of magic fascinating. There are grisly murder scenes - not overly graphic, but with enough detail you get the picture - and a dash of romance. One false step, and everything could #GoDownInFlames . #TeenAngst #BBRC

Librarybelle Things do nearly go down in flames or have a bad ending at one point…so an apt choice for the #BBRC prompt 2mo
LibrarianRyan Nice. I have this sitting on my shelf and have not gottten to it yet. I haven't gotten to much lately. 2mo

I picked this up based on @Aimeesue ‘s review, and I‘m glad I did! Originally published in #1981 , this YA historical fiction covers quite a lot of heavy topics. Russian displacement, eugenics (yikes!), and war are a few of the big ones. There are some very horrible characters, but the MC Anna‘s outlook on life is so grownup and inspiring. And yes, at its core, this is a romance; it‘s fun to watch things unfold! #192025

LeahBergen I want to read this! 5mo

Low pick for me - I think I liked the atmosphere more than most of the characters! But, I was compelled to read it. The whole school sounds spooky, and I‘d love to see a place steeped in so much history and lore.

I guess the message from this is that grief affects everyone differently, and we‘re all running away from something, whether it‘s grief or stress or trauma or something else that consumes us. #PemberLittens #JaneAdjacent

Librarybelle #BBRC #TeenAngst #SnowballEffect - the loss of a loved one catapulted an entire family into grief and pain, causing them to lose interest or the inability to interact with past favorite activities, and in a sense, with each other. @LibrarianRyan 8mo
StayCurious Low pick for me as well. Not quite a so-so. I enjoyed it enough to make it a low pick 7mo

I really enjoyed this book. At times it could be a little too ya. The magic system was cool. Each witch has a designated season which they are strongest in controlling except Clara, she is an Everwitch & has power through all four seasons but she can't control it. I'm really looking forward to the #SundayBuddyRead discussion @TheBookHippie

Mehso-so

In case I need reminded, manga is really not my favorite reading genre, but I completely understand the appeal. Just not for me!

This is the first in the well known Sailor Moon series, so provides the background on the rise of Sailor Moon and her allies, plus the mysterious Tuxedo Mask. The illustrations are fun. #BBRC #TeenAngst #ShojoManga

TheBookHippie I can‘t do it. My niece loves it! 2y
LibrarianRyan Ohh. Too bad. I love it but I grew up with it so it‘s a bit different for me. 2y
