This was good😍 I expected it to be a really light, fun rom com, and then there was so much more DEPTH - a lil bit like January starting out viewing life & love before realising it's all so much more complicated than that. I like that that realisation didn't devalue her writing/her belief in happy endings, or rather a happy for now. I felt like the pacing was slightly off sometimes but overall GOOD

Yay! It‘s here!
This is so wonderfully and lovingly wrapped that I almost don‘t want to unwrap it. However, the suspense is killing me, because I really cannot remember which book I selected as the gift. Thank you, Alyisha, for the awesome opportunity to participate in the coolest swap of book ideas and reading moments.

Now to get on with the surprise…
🤗

monalyisha Ha! An unintentional & happy side effect of my procrastination. Perfect. 💯 2mo
Nute @monalyisha Right on, Girl!😆 2mo

readordierachel The wrapping is just adorable 2mo
monalyisha I hope you were pleased with your choice! I remember which book you picked & I‘m excited for you to read it! It‘s an especially good one for April, I think. 2mo
BeaG Cool! I‘ve been missing swaps lately.🤦🏾‍♀️ I‘ve got to stay my active. 1mo
Nute @readordierachel I liked the wrapping paper as well. Even when looking at the wrapping paper in front of you, the sprinkles are so realistic… it feels like a handful is there for the taking.🙃 4w
Nute @BeaG I know that school is keeping you busy. I hope that things are going well. Many prayers for focus, energy and stamina. Also some downtime for reading. Take care, Jocelyn!💕 4w
Nute @ShelleyBooksie I agree!🙂 4w
Nute @monalyisha The book choice was perfect for April. Her poet‘s vibe is felt here. I enjoyed it. I haven‘t been keeping up with writing ‘reviews‘ about the books that I have read. I think that is part of the reading slump that I am in. Nothing is as usual…even the aftermath.😐 Thank you for the effort that you put into Who Dis. You are amazing, Alyisha!💕 4w
Nute @Amiable It‘s always fun with the two of us together, Amy!💕 4w
Amiable @Nute 😘❤️ 4w

Look at this gorgeous package from @monalyisha for participating in #NYWD22! It‘s so lovely that I didn‘t want to open it.

Such a sweet read about friendships and first loves. Kate and her bestie, Andy, share everything, including crushes. This all changes when a joint crush has them choosing sides and making rules. I loved how they consistently put their friendship first. All of it made me feel like a teen falling in love for the first time all over again. I already want to reread this one.

Thank you for another great #nywd22 pick! @MatchlessMarie @monalyisha

monalyisha Gosh, this sounds sweet! 😍 3mo
MatchlessMarie Glad you liked it! I especially loved that Once Upon a Mattress was the musical. I got the lead for that show in 8th grade so I had a special connection to it ☺️ 3mo
Zuhkeeyah @MatchlessMarie Congrats on scoring the lead role! I didn‘t know it was a real musical. I ended up listening to the soundtrack after I finished. ☺️ 3mo
MatchlessMarie @Zuhkeeyah They also made it into a movie. I believe it‘s on Disney+ Carol Burnett was the original Winnifred. I believe she plays the Queen in the movie. (edited) 3mo

So I assume this is an unpopular opinion, but I was not a fan of the tagged.

The book started off great but I felt it dragged on and then on some more.

I did finish it, but I will not continue the series.

March‘s #nywd22 is “The Only Good Indians” thanks @Readergrrl

monalyisha 😱 3mo
wordslinger42 I bailed on this one. It's definitely an unpopular opinion, but you're not alone! 3mo
Readergrrl @NikkiM5 I hope you like The Only Good Indians! It really stuck with me. Horror mixed with indigenous folklore and storytelling. I went to an author talk at the Mark Twain House here in CT and met the author, Stephen Graham Jones. His discussion of his writing inspiration and history was fascinating. Very cool! 3mo
NikkiM5 @Readergrrl I am very excited to read it. Thank you 😊 3mo
NikkiM5 @wordslinger42 it‘s nice not to be alone lol 3mo

This one has been on my to-read list for awhile. I‘m so glad @JackOBotts had it on the #nywd22 #newyearwhodis list prompting me to finally pick it up.

All the praise for this one is well deserved. Some of this I knew, some of it was new to me and all of it was written with passion and humor. I will likely be purchasing a copy for my own shelves and I‘ve told my son he should read this as well.

monalyisha 💓💓💓 3mo
JackOBotts Agree! I look forward to having my kiddos read this as well, once they‘re a bit older. 3mo

This morning I whipped up my favourite breakfast and started CHOP SUEY NATION. If the first couple chapters are anything to go by, it‘s gonna be good.

KateReadsYA That looks amazing 👏 3mo
Amiable Oh, I've been wanting to read this one since it's on my #NYWD22 list from @singout! I'm having trouble tracking it down, though. I put in a request from my library and they are searching for a copy for me. 3mo
xicanti @KateReadsYA it‘s been a real good morning. 3mo
xicanti @Amiable I hope they can find it! I can‘t wait to dive back in later. 3mo
Singout I hope you find it! I know the list had several Canadian books on it, so that might be a bit harder. 3mo
