The Hazel Wood | Melissa Albert
post image

Happy 2023! If it‘s true that what you do determines what the coming year will be like then it would seem more books are in my future. Today I picked up a copy of, “Firekeeper‘s Daughter”, as well as Darcie Little Badger‘s, “Elatsoe”, and the above mentioned “The Hazel Wood”.

Solstice treat. Many years have passed since I‘ve read any Anais Nin.

Reads like a cross between Firefly, the Expanse and Red Dwarf with a bit of the Ship Who Sang.

The Simple Art of Murder | Raymond Chandler
post image

One summer I read all the Chandler‘s and Hammett‘s I could find. On a trip to Minneapolis I visited the main library where I discovered a Chandler I thought I hadn‘t read before. Turns out I not only had I owned it. Last week I “forgot” again and now have two copies. Sometimes you need a little noir.

Felix Ever After | Kacen Callender
post image

Each time I read a little further in the story I keep recalling “Are You There God? It‘s Me, Margaret” by Judy Blume. I think it‘s element of not knowing oneself and feeling intense pressure to be, or do or act in some unknown way that one feels@ everyone but oneself knows how to do.

It‘s too hot to stay inside an AC free building. This seems about right to reread during a heatwave 🥵

Bruised | Tanya Boteju

Reads like flat track from the early 2000‘s as far as showmanship and free for alls go. The protagonist is working through loss of her parents and other trauma including self harm and thinks roller derby will allow her to continue her downward spiral. Daya is in for a big surprise.

I have many unread books. I‘m working through the ones I don‘t think I‘ll pack to take with me. It‘s hard to do because I always want to have a book to pass on to the right person at the right time. Fortunately I have Litsy to keep track:)

Picked this up a few years ago. I‘m rereading it in preparation for working with an older group of children. I would have loved this type of activity growing up.

This is easily one of my top ten - if I had to get rid of my library, books. The terror came after decades of warning signs. The only way to not repeat history is to learn from it .

That whole scene in Queen Orlagh‘s palace was disorienting. There were some interesting typos throughout the story. I couldn‘t decide if they were editing mistakes or typographical.

Some of the children saw me reading this and were very happy. Such a sweet book. There are some emotionally scary parts for younger readers.

Tamra It‘s a Very sweet book. I can‘t wait for the 3rd installment. 10mo

Sometimes books are too sad, or scary for me to read. Others have a meanness to them I am not in a space to muscle through. Maybe I‘ll try this one again later.
