Forgot to post this on here! I was lucky to get an ARC of You'd Be Mine from NetGalley. It was okay, but as someone not really into country music, it wasn't for me.

I posted reviews for both Cross Ups books on my blog this week.

Book one: Tournament Trouble :https://deannareadsbooks.blogspot.com/2018/12/review-cross-ups-anyones-game-by-sylv.html

Book Two: Anyone's Game: TournamentTrouble-bookreview.html

It's a really great video game book series for the middle grade reader in your life.

I'm was really unsure about this book, Claudia Gray is amazing and proved me wrong. This is about a young and naive Leia and it's truly a coming of age story for her and the rebellion.

I posted this on the blog last week but forgot to post here! I didn't love the second book in the Lara Jeam series as much as the first one, but it was still enjoyable.

Probably not going to review this on my blog since I don't really post DNF reviews. This one had way too many characters. The narrators were fine, but I just hated everyone in this book, I couldn't force myself to read it.

RadicalReader @DReadsBooks wonder if it on audiobook could be any better? 4y
DReadsBooks @RadicalReader i did try it on audio. 4y

I loved Redshirts, it was so meta. LOVED that Wil Wheaton did the audio. The ending got a little weird, but I still enjoyed it.

The Silver Chair | C. S. Lewis
post image

I'm re-reading AKA listening to the audiobooks of the Chronicles of Narnia as an adult and boy do I find some of it really heavy handed religious allegory. I definitely don't love the books after Aslan told Lucy she was too young to go to Narnia. HOW CRUEL! Also I'm pretty sure these are just the old books on tape digitalized and there's a different narrator for each book. It's kind of annoying.

MirrorMask I might have do this! It's been a while since I reread this series. 4y
DReadsBooks @MirrorMask I probably haven't read it since I was a kid. I definitely don't think I actually finished this series! 4y

I had a hard time with this one and I think mostly it was because the writing style annoyed me. It definitely feels authentic to the time period, but I didn't care for it.

Sky in the Deep | Adrienne Young

I am such a sucker for stories set in a Viking/Nordic-type culture, so when I got the opportunity to review this arc back in March, I was ecstatic. The fighting scenes were really brutal in a good way, and I ended up really enjoying our main protagnist Eelyn. Girl was a savage warrior.
