Only Ashes Remain | Rebecca Schaeffer
post image

Only Ashes Remain did not disappoint! I loved the development of Kovit and Nitas relationship and how Rebecca Schaefer explores “good” and “evil”. My biggest complaint was how she shoe horned in racism issues.. It felt unnatural and had me break immersion a few times. #creatures #kelpies #monsters

A solid 4.5/5 for me. The remaining .5 is from getting some science wrong (not anything that can be speculated) and taking forever to get to the monstrous mermaids.

Really enjoyed it and I really appreciate Ms. Grants attempt to flesh out some of the life history of the #mermaids And her attempt at explaining the pressure change.

I would support a scientific study on why cats feel the need to lay on books.

And this book was ok. I bought it after binging Tomb Raider and was hoping it‘d be like that. It wasn‘t for the most part, but I did enjoy learning more about East Asia in first half of the 20th century. #treasure #historicalfiction #catsoflitsy #petsoflitsy

I have a friend that‘s a big #truecrime #nerd and this is her birthday #present

This is about Frances Glessner Lee, an important historical figure in forensics. One of the things she did was create miniature #dollhouses of real life crime scenes that hadn‘t been solved. This helped train detectives and others to help identify evidence and examine crime scenes. #history #femalerolemodels

I like archaeological books, but usually the characters are Mary Sues/ Gary Stus that I DNF It.

The Ruins | Scott Smith
post image

This was a book that my library recommended in my personalized reading list. I liked what the ancient horror is and its abilities. Would‘ve liked to learn more about how it came into being.

The most frightening part is there are real life people that are as idiotic as 4 of the 6.
I do think there are a few plot holes, so a 3/5 stars for me. #horror #idiotas

Holy hell this book is fucked up and I love it. It is fucked up in the ways The Road should‘ve been.

Nita dissects and cuts up bodies of Unnaturals to be sold illegally by her mother. She gets kidnapped and is taken to the death market, where she herself is up for sale.

I checked this out thinking it was Magical Realism based around Halloween.

It‘s not. It‘s romance collection of 3 stories... I made it through the first story.... Unfortunately, I am discontinuing.

Took me over a month, but it was well worth the read!

I loved reading about Timbuktu and its history. Near the final 60 pages I was on edge, worrying about the manuscripts and if they would make it.

Soooo good! Ms. Arden does a tremendous job with the characters and weaving together subplots. I loved the idea of Midnight.

A solid 3/5. This is a debut novel and I can definitely tell in the characters. A little bit too cliche and one dimensional.

I did like the Navajo mythology and folklore.

Yooooo the best YA I‘ve read in years.

This book is about a young women that lives in the ghetto and just her everyday life. Dad in jail, mom going through “boyfriends”, and her brother taken into foster care. Love how Ms. Ramos portrays all the different aspects of poverty (the MC‘s bff takes care of her 7 siblings)

Definitely a book all teenagers should read.
