This book is already breaking my heart! 💔 I was just looking for stories of cleaning up trauma scenes and hoarders‘ houses—don‘t judge me!—but I am getting so much more.

EnidBiteEm Such an important question. 3d
taraWritesSci This book broke my heart too, and I stumbled into it in a similar way: I was curious about the people who cleaned up after trauma and hoarding situations. But as unprepared for it, I'm very glad to have read Sandra's story. 3d

I loved this book. I think I liked it more than book 1. I really enjoyed all of the references to #AmericanHistory tidbits that I recently learned about from the #podcast Stuff You Missed in History Class. The audiobook is also really well done. #racism #ghost #psychic #1920s #chineseamericanhistory #lgbtcharacter #queerbook #queerfantasy #trauma

Kenyazero @magicalshelves That's good to hear! I really look forward to reading it. 3d

This book as so good and so problematic. I‘m torn about Sandra, sometimes I like her. Other times I think she‘s a horrible person. I guess that‘s what makes a good book. One of the best I‘ve read in a long time. 4 stars:)

Read Speak the graphic novel edition and it‘s so powerful and empowering and also heartwrenching 🥺 The illustrations perfectly captures the moods and trauma

My first three books of 2020 included this memoir. I read this one for our book club and we had a really great discussion about it. Meredith was so lucky to have her grandfather and the bees in her life as the rest wasn‘t that great. I also finished Wolf Winter - kind of slow but good - and Shadow is the Fox which I enjoyed but probably won‘t read the next in the series.

I liked this one just as much as the first book. It's a vivid rollercoaster of a read, and provides a good look at generational trauma. #fantasy #magic #ghost #romance #multipleworlds #multiverse #dream #trauma #generationaltrauma #lgbtcharacter

I really enjoyed this book. It's quite different from other works I've read of Libba's, but not disappointing! The pace of the book felt good, the time period was we'll set, and the characters themselves were fun to meet and learn about. I enjoyed the anticipation of waiting for characters to meet! The museum made me think of #gravityfalls. #magic #ghost #curse #murder #lgbtcharacter #trauma #racism #magic #psychic #dream #1920s #americanhistory

VioletBramble I like this series but I kept wondering why Evie's parents sent her to NYC as punishment. She's an unruly teenager who drinks to excess, loves to break rules and wants to be a flapper. Of course, send her to live in NYC with the family weirdo, her bachelor uncle, in his museum of creepy crawlies. Sounds like an excellent plan. The answer to this mystery is revealed in the third book. 2w
Kenyazero @VioletBramble I thought that too! Her parents didn't seem very knowledgeable of teenage behavior. 2w
