Piecing Me Together | Rene Watson
Pickpick

This book is as close to perfect in terms of adding to one's classroom library. A negative with a lot of BLM books is that my white colleagues will say that it makes them feel guilty, angry, etc, so they shut off and don't really get anything out of it. Watson does an excellent job at giving a window into what many of our students may be experiencing in language that is clear and detailed and embraces the reader.

jmtrivera I LOVE this book. 13h

Sequel to The Child Finder. You don‘t need to read the previous book but it helps with context for a few things. TW: Child abuse and molestation.

I loved this sweet and surprising novel recommended to me by @Amandajoy for @monalyisha's #newyearwhodis

The characters felt fully realized for such a short book and I loved the descriptions of late 80s/early 90s Alaskan childhood. I grew up in roughly the same era in a neighboring Alaskan community so some of the points really resonated: work on the slope, walking up to exit glacier and fashion/trends taking 5 years to reach Alaska (if ever 😂)

Amandajoy So glad you enjoyed it! I thought it was such a simple, lovely little book! 2d

Do any of you do this too? I read The Child Finder by this author quite a while ago. I have been waiting and waiting for her next book (this one) to finally come out. I received it for Christmas (I was rather specific in my requests) and am ecstatic. Only now I can‘t get myself to start reading it. Because then.....then it will be over. So I carry it around with me.

marleed oh yes, I read 5 Taylor Jenkins Reid stories in 2019. I physically own her first two books, but I've waited to read them just so I have something to anticipate right at my very fingertips! 4d

aartichapati Is this the author who wrote The Enchanted? If so, I completely understand that feeling of anticipation and nostalgia all at once! 4d
Bklover @LauraJ @lele1432 😊👍 (edited) 4d
Bklover @marleed Yes! I‘ll get to it eventually. Just want to savor it for a while. 4d

robinb Guilty too! 🙋🏻‍♀️🤣 4d
Victoria_Clyne I had to wait well over a year for the final installment in a series. Was so excited to get my copy, which was a physical book to match the other. Started reading it but put it down because with two little kids I just couldn't focus on it enough. I'm hoping to read it this year. 4d

All Amara wants for her 12th birthday is to travel with her dad to NYC to meet his side of the family. Why does her mom feel it wouldn't be safe for her? Why hasn't her dad spoken with his own dad in 12 years?

This is a truly excellent middle-grade book about family secrets, finding roots, and super cool places to visit in NYC. I can't remember the last time I googled so many things while I was reading so I could see pics of these places.

Good old-fashioned creepy fun!
Ania Ahlborn does it again 💁🏻‍♀️🙌🏻
If you love horror & somehow you haven‘t yet found Ahlborn, fix that now. Pick up this - or really, any book by her - and treat yourself to the new master of the genre. Guaranteed to creep you out & keep you up past your bedtime 😮 🖤

vivastory Completely agree! 6d

We follow Naomi, who once was a girl held captive, but cannot remember anything before she was free. Grown up now, she finds children. She‘s looking for Madison, a girl who has been missing for 3 years but whose mind has projected a fairy tale to keep her alive. This was a hard emotional read about all those who go missing, who want to be found, who have been found but who are now lost. The writing is beautiful. Pick!

Chrissyreadit It sounds heartbreaking. 7d
readordierachel Have you read her first book, The Enchanted? 7d
Reggie @Chrissyreadit it is. At first I didn‘t think it would be my style but the further I went, the deeper it snuck in. 7d

Reggie @readordierachel I haven‘t. Was it good? Cause the reason I got this one at the store was because I couldn‘t find The Enchanted. It‘s actually on some people‘s best horror list. 7d
readordierachel It was really, really good. I still think about it. I think you'd like it. 7d
Reggie @readordierachel thanks! I‘ll read it then. 7d
Reagan I agree with @readordierachel I loved The Enchanted and it has stayed with me for years. The follow up to this one is also a good read. 6d
Reggie @Reagan thanks, I‘ll check out the sequel. Hope the sister is still alive! 5d

I enjoyed this one! Good follow-up to the Child Finder. Creepy without being over the top. I also really rooted for the little girl and her friends-tough little kids!

Unflinching, unsentimental, superbly written examination of the realities of cop life by one who lived it. Hanson is a Vietnam vet who struggles with authority and tries to live by his own code. Not for the squeamish but extremely powerful.

Reggie Sounds like a good gritty read. Stacked. 2w
