So excited for this challenge! I love color, so this is right up my ally! :)
The Super Sonic blue might be my favorite color in this set.

October #bookreport!

I read 12 books this October, but that number is inflated a little by me binging the manga series Sweat and Soap. HOWEVER, that is now a contender for my favorite manga series. It's so cute and wholesome and might be the most realistic example of a relationship I've ever seen in a comic. I can't wait for the final two volumes!

Every book this month was excellent. Really I could not have asked for a better reading month. :)

New audiobook locked and loaded and cross stitch is shaping up nicely. Once I get the tree on top of the car done, the only other complicated section is adding snowflakes. Smooth sailing after that! 🎄

August was a weird month. 3 graphic novels, 2 short story collections, and two novellas sort help to inflate the numbers. But, all reading is valid!

Tera0707 “All reading is valid.” I love that! It‘s so true! My professor was telling us how a teacher had told her son that reading a graphic novel was not actual reading. Professor told him yes it is, to tell the teacher she said it was, and if there‘s an issue, she will put the teacher in her place. Said she never heard anything back lol. 5mo

I read this one because Riley Sager was throwing some shade when Grady Hendrix‘s new book came out. And I have to say, he should have kept his mouth shut, this one is awful. Is it s spoiler to say this is the dumbest twist ending I have ever read? I‘m glad this wasn‘t my first Riley Sager or I wouldn‘t have read another.

Sorry Sager, Grady did it way better. 👎🏻

I actually finished this book a few weeks ago and I have FEELINGS. It turns out I think I‘m a Grady Hendrix fan or something because I‘ve now read nearly everything he‘s ever written. Oops. 😅

Anyway, this story follows Lynnette as she tries to unravel a conspiracy of someone targeting final girls.

Did I mention the audio is read by real film final girl Adrienne King?

Popsugar Challenge #28

This was a weird book. I picked it out because I really liked the cover, but then the story didn't match it at all. It was a sprawling story that followed the lives of several people all touched by Bertha Truitt, except her daughter, the person I was really interested in knowing more about.

Yay! Hoopla added all of the Bridgerton books on audio! No more having to fight for a spot on the holds list on Libby. Pretty excited to keep going on this series. The first book was by far the worst, this one looks much more promising.

Popsugar Challenge #1

I went into this book really unsure. Nesta was my least favorite character of the series and I didn't really care about her arc. That said, this book was worth it. I have a few quibbles; it's about twice as long as it needs to be, and I feel like the Trove is very underdeveloped, but overall it was the best. Also, the House is the best character of the series so far and and I love it!

Round up for March 2021! Lots of graphic novels and several of them I read digitally on the ipad - which was a completely new experience.

Not doing so hot on my goal of reading mostly my own books in 2021, but we're only three months in and I should have time to catch up.

I always look forward to each new Patricia Briggs book. I don't know any other fantasy author who can seamlessly combine werewolves, witches, bigfoot, and HP Lovecraft and make it work as well as she does. Anna and Charles' relationship is so wholesome, and honestly, #goals.

I picked up this series because a co-worker at the library recommended it and BOY HOWDY IS HE EVER ON MY LIST NOW. I'm enjoying it, my husband is not enjoying me sleeping with the lights on. 😬

This is one of those horror series that's fine in the daylight and downright nightmare inducing at night. That said, I am almost half way through and very interested in seeing where it goes.

I read this one as an ebook on Hoopla! This was the first time in a long time I'd reached for an ebook and the first time ever I'd read a comic digitally. The experience wasn't the same as reading a trade of a beloved comic, but with our budget for graphics what it is, I'll take what I can get!

Popsugar Challenge #29

Set in Japan and England, this is an interesting addition to the series in that it jumps back to events that took place between books 7&8 then forward to events after books 9-12. Not to mention Sherlock Holmes meets ninjas. Maybe one of the weaker books overall, but I have a soft spot for it.
