I understand the issues a lot of people had with this one as it does read quite young. I think it would have been received better if it had just been comped to Cinderella rather than Marissa Meyers Cinder. I did find it quite slow, but I like the promise of the series and the fairy tale aspect, so I will give book 2 a go.

Water | John Boyne
post image
Pickpick

John Boyne is a master at writing emotion. This book is short but says a lot. Looking at the roles of men and women, abuse, suicide, small town ideologies, and religion, this book crams a lot into its pages but is never preachy. It would make a fantastic book club pick. I love the idea of his Elements series and will definitely be getting the next one.

AmyG I liked this one, too. 2w

This book was nothing like I was expecting and surprised me in the best way. The dystopian, cyber punk world is so well designed, and the characters have such strong personalities. This is placed in YA, but it's different from any YA I've read in the past. This didn't read as a debut to me. I'm super curious to see where this goes.

Big Time: A Novel | Ben H. Winters
post image
Pickpick

Ben Winters never disappoints. He's in the same class as Blake Crouch and Rob Hart, creating twisty, mind-bending science that comes across as possible. This book is a mix of a thriller and a horror about what would happen if people were able to harvest time. A quick read that I devoured. He has become an auto buy author for me! ##catsoflitsy #alice

I think this is another one of those instances where the goodreads reviews are overly harsh. While I would have liked more adventure and less politics in this Mexican feminine zorro tale, for a debut, I thought the writing was good and the setting was lovely. And it may just be the prettiest book on my shelf.

This is a must-read for all murder mystery lovers! I devoured this in a sitting. It was the most clever mystery I've read in a long time. I had picked it up when I was intrigued that Stephen King, Liane Moriarty, and Alex Michaelides all praised it with blurbs. I think this author has found her niche, and I hope to read more of her mysteries in the future. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Fox Wife: A Novel | Yangsze Choo

This book was magic and my favourite so far by Choo. I read this slowly and am so sad it's over. The setting wad a character in itself and I loved how the two story lines weaved together. This will definitely be one of my favourite reads of 2024 and a book I will think about for a long time. Beautiful and perfect! #highlyrecommend

LeeRHarry Good to hear! It‘s definitely on my radar. 😊 2mo

I don't know what it is about K-pop romances, but they have become my comfort reads. I loved this one and hope we get more stories for the other boys in the band.

Into the Sunken City | Dinesh Thiru

Pickpick

This was such a fantastic premise for a YA novel. In a futuristic Waterworld Earth where major cities have all been lost under water a diver girl and her sister team up with Pirates to dive sunken Las Vegas to raid the vaults of the Treasure Island hotel for its gold. Complete with new takes on loved Treasure Island characters. How did no one think of this idea before? Can't wait to see what this author comes up with next. #catsoflitsy #alice

Cage of Dreams | Rebecca Schaeffer

I absolutely love this duology and wish I could spend more time in this world. The author created a Gotham style city with corrupt mayor's and mob bosses and added in people turning into their own nightmares. Dinosaurs roam the streets, and pretty much any nightmare you could imagine comes to life. The FMC, who is afraid of everything, must navigate this world to save her friends from a giant lizard. I can't recommend this enough! So original!

Kiersten White has definitely found her niche in creepy, weird adult horror. While I didn't love this one as much as Hide, it was still a really unique premise that kept me entertained. And I absolutely love these covers!

I adored this ghost story! A ghost talker and ghost boy who can't stand each other have to travel through the liminal world to save him before Halloween when he is gone forever. I would have loved to experience more of the liminal world. Mr. Mortmanger, the elderly, cannibal, convenience store owner gave me Percy Jackson vibes. Lots of fun! I appreciate getting this in a Fairyloot box as it's not one I normally would have picked up on my own.

It's a little late, but the best spooky October read! Charity is the final girl in a terror simulation horror camp reminiscent of Friday the 13th when the tables are turned and the players become the victims. This was a totally fun and nostalgic read. My second read from Kalynn Bayron that I've absolutely loved.
