I'm loving this series! This one was a bit harder to get through because it's so long and so much happens but it is an enjoyable read (listen?). The audio is awesome, the narrator is just spot on.

Life update: so this past week has been crazy for me, I quit my retail job, started at a library as a circulation clerk, got accepted into grad school for my Master of Library Science, and started a coaching position for my high schools Color Guard. Lots of crazy stuff but I am so happy to be working in the field I want to go into finally! Such an exciting moment in my life and I just wanted to share.

wanderinglynn That‘s awesome & so exciting! Congrats! 🎉 1w

So I read this not too long after reading Song of Achilles and I think it was really interesting to see two different author's perspectives on Achilles. While Miller seems to romantise the war and write something more akin to a love story, Barker isn't afraid to show the hideousness and gory details of the war. She doesn't pull any punches on her descriptions of sickness, injuries, and general (lack) if hygiene. I loved seeing the differences.

Imaginary Friend | Steven Chbosky

So... Was someone going to tell me that Stephen Chbosky was putting out a new book or was I just supposed to find that out while scrolling through my email?
I love Perks of Being a Wallflower with every part of my being, Chbosky's writing is incredible and I wasn't sure if I was ever going to get to read something by him again, let alone a horror novel by him. I'm ordering it on Amazon now and I can't wait for it to get here.

Wayward Son | Rainbow Rowell

I absolutely adored this book. It made me sad to see the relationship issues that Baz and Simon have but I am hopeful that things are going to work out for them. This wasn't exactly what I was expecting from the sequel but I loved it every step of the way. I really hope we get to see a conclusion to the series soon!

Finally on to the second part of The Priory! It's taken me so long to get through to this point, which is no fault of the book or the writing I just haven't had time to read and I also want to give as much attention as I can to it. There are so many characters and so much happening that it is a lot to keep track of but I want to take time with it and enjoy every minute.

This book is so uniquely charming. It is very reminiscent of the classic Penny Dreadful tales, capturing the same quality of story and the same strange and wonderful characters. I loved the audiobooks, the narrator was perfect. It includes characters from Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Sherlock Holmes.

These semester promises to be crazy busy for me. I unfortunately won't have much time for reading. I got this beauty for Christmas and I've so looked forward to reading it. I love Zusak, The Book Thief and I Am the Messenger are two of my absolute favorite books of all time. It might take me some time to get through but it promises to be great

And here I go again unable to decide what to read so I start two of the longest books in my collection at the same time. I'm really enjoying this though, the narration is so interesting how it directly addresses the reader and almost makes them a character. I'm loving it so far.

I'm about to embark on this somewhat intimidating book. I've read a lot of good reviews about and a lot that say it's a slow start to an amazing series. I hope I holds my attention, the characters seem intriguing.
I have this urge to start so many books right now. It was either this or The Crimson Petal and the White. #tbr #fantasy

Finished my reading goal just in time! I wish I could have read more but this year has been so crazy busy I didn't have time for more reading. I read a lot of really great books though and discovered some really great new authors. I'll aim for 55 for the new year! I try to up it a little every year.

Strange the Dreamer | Laini Taylor

Only on chapter three but I'm loving it already. I think Laini Taylor may be one of my new favorite authors. I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone. She just had such a unique way of describing things and her narrators and world building are spot on.

Vicious | V. E. Schwab
Pickpick

I love everything V.E. Schwab writes. She's just incredible. Vicious reminds me of X-Men in a way and the characters are just spot on. Eli and Victor's relationship has everything I want out of a hero/villian relationship and it left me torn about who I should be routing for in the beginning. I love seeing the contrast of their college lives to their adult lives.

Naj This book brought the dead fangirl in me back to life. Also, I was rooting for Victor from the beginning. But yeah, both of them are messed up. 11mo

Me: It's too close to Christmas to be ordering books.

Found this author while scrolling through Instagram and couldn't resist the blurb. Also I had a Thriftbooks reward so it was only a dollar.

I loved this book way more than I expected. The world building surrounding this story is so unique and beautiful. I especially loved how we discovered it alongside the main character. With a lot of YA novels I can usually guess what's going to happen but there were so many twists and beautiful turns.

"... And he looked at her. Just looked. His gaze was heat across her cheeks, her lips. It was touch. His eyes were hypnotic, his brows black and velvet. He was copper and shadow, honey and menace, the severity of knife-blade cheekbones and a widow's peak like the point of a dagger."

I'm listening to this book on audio and I think that may be a contributing factor for not finishing it. It's a good book but there is so much happening and so many different perspectives going on it's hard to keep track of through the audio. Usually I love audiobooks. I think I'll have to try this one again another time with the physical book.

ulrichyumiodd Oh, I got that one as an audio book, too! Hopefully, I'll be able to follow the story. I have not started it yet 12mo

Frankenstein: ; Or, The Modern Prometheus | Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

This year is the 200th birthday for the 1818 publication of Frankenstein. My university had events today in commemoration of it and I got to write a short story based off the themes of the book to read for a crowd. There was a lecture on the history of the book's publication, a lecture on alchemy, theater did a dramatic reading of chapter 7, then a showing of Bride of Frankenstein. #frankenreads #studentlife #creativewriting #favoritebook

So I've decided to start this beauty. I've heard a little about it through reviews, particularly about how wonderfully descriptive it is. I'm only on chapter two and I'm already seeing just how well written the descriptions are. I've never been to Prague before but I feel like I'm right there.

The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller
Pickpick

It's been a long time since a book really brought tears to my eyes. Miller did an incredible job of portraying Achilles and Patroclus and retelling their story. The way she paints their relationship is just stunningly beautiful. There is so much packed into this story and I'm absolutely in love with the way Miller writes. I received Circe in a #BookoftheMonth Box last month and I'm so excited to start it! #newfavorite #greekmyths

I love this book series! The characters that Salavic creates are so vivid and I love them all so much (even Riko). I'm so happy that these are becoming audiobooks. I feel like that fit the format well because they tend to be fast paced. I highly recommend for anyone that likes mafia stories. #favorite #mafia #audiobook

So I'm taking a little hiatus from reading this one. It's not that it's hard to get through or anything, it's just that there's a lot happening in it that's making me stressed and I know the next book doesn't come out until next year. I don't think I can handle the suspense. Also I may have "accidentally" flipped to the last chapter and read some ??? #bookhiatus #spoileditformyself

BookHoarder32 Good point... 🤔 It's a toss up between wanting to read it, and wanting to wait for the next one to be out 12mo

Okay, gotta say I actually really enjoyed this collection of sonnets. There is so much incorporated in each sonnet and so much to work out and work through. It's incredible. The way the sonnets all connect to each other and create an image of past and present and even future. He shows how the cycles of past, present, and future have repeatedly themselves and will continue to repeat themselves if people can't or won't change the way they think.

I'm starting this one for my sonnet class. My professor was really excited for it so hopefully I can get into it. I'm not a huge fan of poetry, which I think is the fault of the American education system and the way it drills poetry from a young age and not in an enjoyable way.
