His to Defend | Rhenna Morgan

This was a great contemporary alpha male romance. I‘ve never read a book about a modern day mobster so I wasn‘t quite sure what to expect, but I ended up loving the dynamics.

When a librarian posting angry reviews on the library‘s starts to cause issues and being into question the library‘s neutral opinion on books, an inquiry occurs. I loved how our group supports one another throughout this entire volume. It really shows how much Iku and Hikaru have become part of this defense force family. The role that Hikaru‘s brother also plays in this was really interesting as well.

Lady Jayne Disappears | Joanna Davidson Politano

This book was like Jane Eyre meets a Charles Dickens novel and I loved it. It‘s like Jane Eyre in the sense that the main character is living in a mysterious house with people above her station. Similar to a Dickens novel, this book deals with and shed light on some unsavory things about the Victorian era like debtors‘ prison.

This book was absolutely amazing!

The story is very simple but very profound. There are lots of little pieces of wisdom sprinkled throughout that really hit me hard. For example, this was one of my favorite passages:

“Sometimes I feel lost,” said the boy.
“Me too,” said the mole, “but we love you and love brings you home.”

Definitely enjoyed this a lot more than the first one. Several years since the initial introduction of Themis to the world, our team faces a new challenge when the creatures of these robots come to earth with their own robot.

The Death of Truth | Michiko Kakutani

Went to the #library with the bingo prompts. I also picked out some new titles that looked interesting and some that I felt I needed to revisit before reviewing, like Death of Truth. I feel like at one point the tone and message shift but because I heard the audiobook, it's hard to double check. So I got the physical copy! #nonfiction #tbrpile #history #politics #environment #food #lgbtq #mentalhealth #analysis

I picked this up from the library because the illustration design was interesting and I thought the time period during the fur trade would be a nice pallet cleanse from what I've been reading. During the time of early exploration of America, a battle breaks out when a Frenchman takes over the Fort of an Englishman. This was definitely what the description said it was but by the end of it, I just looked at it and thought "is that it?"

This was a very heartfelt and touching book.

The depression representation was really well done. It showed what depression looked like and how it affects not only the person with it, but also their loved ones.
