This book is so funny and 100% honest! It‘s an absolute riot. You‘ll devour it in 20 minutes or less and it will leave you wanting to eat a whole pizza by the end. Highly recommend!

This was such a refreshing read and with an Asian lead too! It‘s a fast paced urban fantasy/romance read and so much fun to read. Really excited to read the next book in the series! Also, Killing Eve season 1 is so good! I can‘t wait for season 2 and am looking forward to reading the books.

Scott_BookInvasion Ooooh I didn‘t realize the movie was based on a book! It is the same one, yes? 1y
Bookishaf @Scott_from_BookInvasion yes it is! I didn‘t know it was either until I saw the trailer. And for some reason I thought it was an older story but it was published last year. Went totally under my radar. 1y

Don‘t remember what @bookriot article I found this book one but I am so glad I requested it. This is a beautiful fantasy novel with a strong and complex heroine. Join Melanie as she travels to Half World in an effort to rescue her mother. I won‘t tell you more than that because I‘ll spoil it. It‘s a great read and once you start, you won‘t be able to put it down!!

Lindy I love this and everything else by Goto. ❤️ 2y

Read this for book club at work and it was fantastic! It takes a look at what's outside our resort views when we go on vacation. It explores love, homosexuality, how women can be oversexualized, the struggle to get ahead, classism and beauty standards. It's a lot I know but it is so well written. Pick it up sometime soon!

What a fun and mysterious ride! The Spill Zone used to be Poughkeepsie before something weird happened overnight. You're not supposed to go in there anymore but Addie sneaks in to take pictures of the odd creatures that survive there to make money to support her sister. Her sister who survived the Spill Zone and has a weird Raggedy Ann type doll. I love mine but thank goodness it's packed away because I'd be freaked AF by it now. Check this out!

One of my favorites of 2017! It's a little slow going at first but this is a wonderful debut novel from Yoojin Grace Wuertz. It's about class, love, money, motherhood, & family as three young people try to change their lives in Seoul in 1978 during a time of political change and social discontent.

Have you guys heard of Postepic? It's an app that lets you take a picture of a book quote and then it'll turn it into text that you can edit and then you pick a background and turn it into a fun photo! Kinda fun if you don't want to type or write out quotes you like or have a bunch of photos of quotes on your phones. Just found it! No endorsement from them, just sharing :)

I listened to the audio version, read by Aziz Ansari, and it is fantastic! He did a really good job with his research (I think). Using focus groups and data from various social media and dating sites, he explores how romance has changed over the past few decades with the help from social media and dating apps. I will say it makes me even more nervous about dating but a great read/listen nonetheless!!

Wannabe_Quijote I liked this one too. Interesting, funny, and evidence-based. What more can we ask for?! 3y
