Rating: 4 🌟
Book: 17 of 2022

Such a fun audiobook!! Character growth combined with relationship development and witty humor, couldn‘t help myself but love following along! An easy listen and not to mention another book that writes of both the amazingness and challenges for women in STEM ❤️ I hope there will be more to come by Farrah Rochon.

Hey! 😊 Will start shopping for #soss in the next days and I wonder: Do you prefer the jungle or the sea (or do you dislike one of them?) as design theme?
What is your fave landscape type/country to travel to?

lirahlu @Yuki_Onna I'm so excited for #soss! I love the sea AND the jungle. I'm very much a fan of all things green and love the water. Deserts and bleak landscapes make me so sad. I've always wanted to visit the a coastal town in the U.K. but I love rivers and lakes. Fun fact: my husband grew up in Germany! 1w
Kar2b I loved this book, too, and have its sequel preordered. Did you read “Legendborn”? That‘s another top YA read of mine from last year. (And another sequel I have on preorder. LOL) 4d
lirahlu @Kar2b I have not read "Legendborn" but will definitely add it to my TBR. 4d

Piper's story stole my whole heart. #ownvoices that represent so many similarities to my own: hearing loss, learning to compensate, asking for help and yet set in the future that doesn't seem so far-fetched. This is my second Auslan title, the first being Impossible Music (Williams). I read many excerpts aloud to my family and they had epiphanies of their own Asphyxia/Piper could put words to things I've never been able to express eloquently.

A Greek myth influenced coming of age/embracing your gifts story with diversity and LGBTQ representation, relatable characters, magic, Poison Ivy powers, and mystery story elements. It all works.

a slow start, but still gave enough to hold my interest. Then things start coming together and it was addicting. Book 2 is out in June and I am READY.

(Pics from my garden, hopefully I have more bloomed by Book 2, I don‘t have Briseis‘s green thumb)

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! 3w
MeganAnn This is also my #noshamereadathon22 pick for a YA romance! @Nessavamusic #nsr22 3w
Nessavamusic Nice job! This looks cute. 3w

I listened to this as an audiobook; and I‘m surprised at how much I enjoyed it! It‘s not my usual type of book at all, but Moon is so funny and the plot is actually one I could get behind—I actually rooted for the romance, which is rare for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Crick! Crack! This is a middle grade story that blends Caribbean folklore—including a scary sea woman—with a modern tale of a girl whose mother has recently died. Suspenseful pacing and believable characters make for an excellent audiobook, read in the golden voice of Bahni Turpin. #ownvoices #kidlit

LeahBergen That sounds wonderful! 1mo
Lindy @LeahBergen Ues, it‘s well done. 😊 1mo
