I love books, specifically: YA, poetry, sci-fi, and fantasy. In addition, I also love coffee, dogs, traveling, and food. https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2414478-krys

😭😭😭
Well, look, I know the title tells me how it ends but it doesn‘t tell me about the journey to the end and my heart aches for Mateo and Rufus. I have had my earphones in for hours because I couldn‘t stop listening once I started. They Both Die at the End is beautiful and painful.

Changing it up from my last audiobook. I‘ve heard a lot about this one and have decided to give it a go. So far I like that there are 2 narrators, taking turns each chapter for their character. I‘m either going to be an emotional mess at the end of the story or indifferent. Guess we‘ll see.

Finally finished Fahrenheit 451. An intense story, a wonderful story, and probably largely due to the narration done by Tim Robbins.

Hey, Kiddo | Jarrett J. Krosoczka
post image

A wonderful graphic memoir where Jarrett looks back at growing up and being raised by his grandparents as his mother grappled with addiction and life choices that kept her away from him. It‘s about meeting the father he didn‘t know and the different types of families that exist. It‘s a story about love, family and how art can help you survive. Very good read.

Eight Will Fall | Sarah Harian
post image

#EightWillFall is a very important reminder of why I need to not be distracted by covers and take in the actual summary. While it was a good book (definitely recommend because not only was it a wild ride but also a stand-alone) I somehow failed to take in that it was a horror fantasy and was not at all prepared for what I read 🤦🏼‍♀️😂 My bad 🤣😭😱thanks #Netgalley for the chance to read, imma read something fluffy now.

Thanks to #netgalley I have some reading to work through this weekend. Top of that list is #EightWillFall by Sarah Harian which has been pushed off for so long for no other reason than poor planning, but I mean to finish it before it‘s published day.

The Guinevere Deception | Kiersten White
post image

This book, first in a new trilogy, was a fun book for the Arthurian nerd in me but it moved quite slow and while interesting still was missing something. I‘ll definitely pick up book 2 still when it drops but for now I‘m just ready to move on to other reading.

Artificial Condition | Martha Wells

My month of October reading, not what I‘d hoped for but I got reading done. I picked up a lot of stuff and ended up putting it back down without being able to get into it. I‘ll just have to try again later ☺️.
Murderbot Diaries, Artificial Condition, was by far my favorite read, I‘m waiting on book 3 to arrive right now so I can keep going.

Just wrapped up When the Sky Fell on Splendor (a sweet book about friendships, secrets, and found families, my not so secret weakness) and now jumping into Fahrenheit 451. A book I‘ve started many times now but still haven‘t completed. Maybe audiobook will be the secret behind me finally finishing it.

My thrift shop book finds this week. Phillip Margolin was a favorite of mine way back when all I read was mystery so it‘ll be fun to revisit his writing and see how his writing still holds up. The rest just seemed like fun, interesting reads and with a 3 day weekend and typhoon warnings shutting everything down around me, shall provide me some entertainment.

IhoardBOOKS @thereadingowlvina Yeah, I believe it just came out like a week or so ago. If it has even half the magic and love the first one does I‘ll be happy ☺️ It‘s called The Bootlace Magician. (edited) 1mo

Soul of Stars | Ashley Poston
post image

I think the author really hit her stride in the second book of this duology. I found it a lot funnier (and more emotional) and while I thought book 1 moved fast I felt like things moved smoother in book 2. It also got me more invested in the relationship between Jax and Robb, book 1 I was not feeling it but I also don‘t like the insta-love trope either. Book 2 I could tell they worked to be where they were at now and I loved it.

What‘s a book nerd to do but find a really cool library while traveling overseas? This is #StarfieldLibrary in Seoul which is located in a mall. Big, open, and so crowded by tourists. Beautiful set up, but I wouldn‘t like to study here.

Went to the Seoul International fireworks festival yesterday, and we went quite early to get a spot to sit. Managed to start this during the wait and finish it on the ride back, interesting retelling and the overall pace of the book was pretty fast going which was good. That ending though 😱😱😱
Curious to see how it‘ll all wrap up in book 2.

Yesterday I had a pretty early day because I was flying out to start my vacation. By the end of my evening this is what I‘d all managed to read. House of Salt and Sorrows was soooooo good. Definitely recommend for someone looking for slight chills and thrills.
City of Ghosts was also really fun, I hadn‘t expected much from it when I opened it but it was a quick fun read.

My September reading stack, did pretty good. Still not everything I wanted to get to, but I got reading done and that‘s the important part 😊 #Salvaged was a fun, intriguing read. Loved the #TheGoodLuckGirls. #MagicForLiars was a great audible listen, the narrator was phenomenal. #ADreamSoDark was a fantastic continuation of A Blade so Black. Most of my reading this month was thanks to #Netgalley.

Schnoebs How did you like the good luck girls??? 2mo
IhoardBOOKS @Schnoebs I really liked it, felt like it moved kinda slow but I didn't care because I was so into it. 2mo

Babysitters Club | Ann M. Martin

My school wanted to hold me back in kindergarten because my reading ability and told my ma to not expect much from me in the future. She took the summer to work with me and by the time I went back I was a 4th grade reading level, the next summer I‘d moved up to a high school reading level. The Babysitters Club was one of the first series I really remember reading, I‘ve read lots of books since but this was among the first to make an impression.

Someone keeps donating huge sets of manga to the local thrift store and I want to meet them and offer them actual money in exchange for a chance at first dibs on what they‘re getting rid of. I also have The Promised Neverland and The Girl From the Other Side from them which are both really good so far.

Thanks to #Netgalley I got a chance to read #WonderWomanWarbringerTheGraphicNovel which means I now need to make time to read the novel it‘s based off of because I found it really enjoyable and want more. It‘ll be interesting too to see how they compare. Beautifully illustrated and wonderful colors, will recommend this book when it comes out in January 2020.

The last of my book outlet orders (for now) has arrived and now it‘s time to decide the reading order of all new books I received this month 😊 I‘ve been buying #waywardchildren and #murderbotdiaries because they‘re books I‘ve fallen in love with and having physical copies will make it easier to share them with others. I‘m excited about the rest too, authors I‘ve liked previously or just interesting sounding titles all together.

Thanks to #netgalley I got a chance to read #TheTeaDragonFestival by Katie O‘Neill. It is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel that is set before her Tea Dragon Society.
You‘ve seen the ridiculously adorable tea dragons from Katie O‘Neill‘s previous book but this time be prepared to meet an actual dragon (as well as more tea dragons because I‘ll never get enough of those little guys)! Wonderful book, definitely recommend.

Trying to decide my next read. Typically don‘t read a lot of non-fiction but it‘s nice to break up my usual reading with different things. #Thelastblackunicorn or #thesoundofgravel, I‘m sure I‘ll change my mind multiple times in between now and me starting to read 😂

Poet X | Elizabeth Acevedo

Poet X is a great read, and I read it way too fast.
X finds herself in the poetry she writes and the relationship she begins to forge with her lab partner, beginning to discover more to herself beyond daughter and sister. Unfortunately when her mother discovers her writing it becomes a point of contention between them and X has to overcome to share herself and her truths.

I worked at an Indie bookstore for a few years, best job ever, and loved doing the displays. One of my favorite months was September which was a full month display of banned/challenged books to stir up conversation and of course push books. This was one of the last displays I did before leaving.

Hermione gets drugged at a dance and raped. The book is the events leading up to, during, and after this and is an emotional journey. By far the best part of this was Polly, I can only hope everyone has a best friend like Polly in their corner.

This manga starts out as 5 post college students living their normal, boring lives. Trying to make the best of it, find their place in life and just live their best lives. Then halfway through the feels came out of the bushes and attacked me with bats, had to pause so I could sob uncontrollably before finishing the story 😭😭😭

Sparrowhawk | Delilah S Dawson

Pickpick

Art(emesia) is the illegitimate daughter of a Naval Captain chafing at a world that doesn‘t want her to be an equal in it. Pulled into the faerie realm, by their queen, she makes questionable friendships (all friendships with faeries are questionable) and fights to make her way back to her world to fight off the queen.
The art was gorgeous.
