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

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
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
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.
