This book 🥴 has me in a chokehold. This book started off dark. Like, I switched from tea or wine fast. I am so grateful for @TheKidUpstairs for suggesting it. Also Buddha has decided to say hi. Running behind with my litsy mail, but task master Buddha says I should have it all completed by Monday lol 🐶🐾

“Sometimes I feel like I've been building you a House out of my own bones. And still, you look at me with so much contempt and mistrust. You complain because there are gaps in the roof of my ribs, and you ask me to give more of myself to fill them.”

This moment right here was interesting & I honestly felt it. I might not be a fan but I think some of us have been with in relationships where this has been felt. #woc #horror #poc

On another episode of what hell am I reading and goodreads is a lie — lol I am not the target audience for this book. If you like other works by this author, I am sure this book is up your alley. I am more or less kept saying “what in the hell” - see image above for how I felt during this book.

This cover number 2 —- ummm who has read this book because, this might not be for me. Like I am not sure how I feel about this book. Does it get better or am I set up for “don‘t trust goodreads” again lol? This cover is haunting and makes more sense than the first one. I realize this not a vampire story, I thought that‘s what this will turn into. Just bloodmaids & twisted human hunger.

So Libby sent me this from my hold list. This is 1 of 2 covers. I am not sure how I feel about this book. It‘s suppose to be horror fantasy based on the history of the Countess of Bathory (known for bathing in the blood of virgins to stay young). I think it will be more fiction than anything historical. #historical #horror #poc #woc #fantasy #blood

She Drives Me Crazy | Kelly Quindlen

I will say the casting of Desi queer cheerleader was genius. The acknowledgement of how profound and important that is can be seen in the book. I would loved a little bit more from Irene, but Scottie was the central character. I love how YA leads are more than just one type of person. Having desi cheerleader is the representation I love seeing in YA novels. There is someone out there reading this book feeling seen. #desi #gl #queerstories #ya

7 out of 10. A queer remake of the 80s movie “she can‘t buy me love”, but with a modern look of how losing ones self in pride, grief, and denial can lead to losing everything. Fun story, very predictable. I will say the honesty towards the end of the book was refreshing. There are some 80s/90s references most people will love.

Cute story - little lost in weeds for a moment till the pace picked up and gave way to what the reader was suppose to learn. This story is about growth, acceptance, defiance, and making a new normal. 7.5 out of 10, this would make a great cozy read. Good Valentines season book. #gl #queerstories #graphicnovel #fantasy

This book was crazy. I will say the unnamed Orisha - that story got me in a choke hold. I will be adding the next book in the series, because I need to know what will happen next. I hope they make a paper back of book 2, this hard back was heavy. Lol Now the foundation has been laid in book one, we can get to all the crazy in book 2

This book was a slow start. To build a strong foundation led to being slow in the beginning(my theory since there are 3 books so far).This West African inspired fantasy series allows for strong character building, world development, and even tone story pace. Main character Arrah (googled fan art) above.

Spare | Prince Harry the Duke of Sussex
post image

Welp there are 4 things I know as I read this book so far. 1. Prince Harry should have got his butt whooped a few times for some of those high school antics 2. Prince Harry was not as sneaky as he thought 3. Affection is more valuable than money 4. Childhood tramua untreated will manifest later. I am only up to age 19 now. Can‘t read this book without chamomile tea or wine.

Okay— who has read this series, Will Trent? Episode 1 has me interested, now that I know there is a book series, I would love to hear your thoughts. Because, this man here is a whole neurodivergent snack🤩

swishandflick My all-time favorite crime fiction character! I haven't tried the show because the vibe seems WAY off looking at the pictures and trailer. The real Will Trent is not that polished. 3mo
swishandflick Though, PS, her Grant County series has characters that ultimately cross over into the Will Trent universe. So I'd personally recommend reading that series first so the complicated back stories make sense! (edited) 3mo
5feet.of.fury I agree with @swishandflick about starting with Grant County! I watched the first ep, and I liked it. But the books are much grittier, Karin has said that book Will Trent and TV Will Trent are not the same Will. So I‘m trying to judge them each on their own merits 3mo
Liatrek I love the Will Trent book series and didn‘t realize until I was a few books in that I should of read the Grant County series first. I haven‘t watched the show because the trailers really didn‘t seem to be anything like the book like @swishandflick said. But maybe I‘ll give it a try 🙂 3mo
Bookjunkie57 I literally picked up the book because of trailers of the show. Might read another before watching cause Will shared the spotlight in this one. 2mo
