Adored this story about Trevor Noah's insane childhood under apartheid South Africa. Great, funny stories about really hard things that really make one appreciate how easy ones life is. I listened to this one and his accent is fantastic.

The other hot YA book I've been hearing so much about this summer. I adored this one. Girl buys lottery ticket for boy for his 18th birthday - and he wins MILLIONS. What could go wrong? I did not expect to cry as much as I did, but the tears were so worth it

One of the hot YA books out the summer. And I loved it. Arranged marriage, but one party doesn't know and is NOT feeling it. What happens if they fall in love anyway?

Always wonderful when the "bad guy" gets what's coming to them. ?

Fantastic!! Loved this one so much. What's better than a bookstore mystery with a little romance thrown in?

Fantastic memoir, but I don't agree that it explains Trump's victory.

So uncomfortable, but I couldn't put it down.

The Trees | Ali Shaw

Pickpick

Fairy tale like story where a dark spooky forest erupts all over the world within minutes and destroys everything. Those that survived the Trees coming have to try to figure out how to live with them. Character growth, relationships, and a friendly fox. Plus some mysticism thrown in.

Is there a more perfect narrator for #TheBoysInTheBoat than Edward Hermann? I think not.

CocoReads I can't do audio books but I may have to try it with Edward Hermann narrating! 3y
Bigreadslittlereads @CocoReads Yes! So good to have Richard Gilmore read it - seems right up his alley. 3y

The Wolf Road was unlike anything else I've read this year - in the best way. It was dark and twisty and though it opens at the ending, there's a huge twist that will change everything you've read. There's a full review on my blog today - http://bit.ly/2dzSQ54

I've been on a pretty big HP kick lately - working my way through the audiobooks. Jim Dale is fantastic and it's been so fun to revisit Hogwarts.

The Wolf Road | Beth Lewis

Currently reading - and really enjoying - The Wolf Road. It's pretty different from anything I've read before. I believe it's set in Canada, but it's post apocalyptic, and the characters have super strong Appalachian accents. It's very suspenseful and you never know what's coming from any of the characters.

Utterly heartbreaking. Especially when we find out what happened to Mabel.
