Guess who got her hot little hands on an #ARC of Elin‘s last book (sob)?! Soooooo excited. I‘ll be up all night reading.

marleed I sure hope she succumbs to reader fandom and revisits Nantucket in the future. Her people are my close personal friends! 3w

Wow. Fantasy is not my top genre, but I needed to know what all the fuss was about. And now I have drank the Kool-Aid. These are good. Just finished book 2 and I‘m starting book 3 immediately. My apologies to all of the books on my to be read pile. 😂

Lsmoore43 I am looking forward to reading these also. Not my usual genre but yeah I have to know.... 5mo

“The Mystery Behind ‘A Wrinkle in Time‘ Cover Art Is Solved:”

SpeculativeFemale I came across this article earlier today and loved it! Plus that was the cover I first saw as a kid that got me interested in the series 😁 9mo
IndoorDame How cool! I remember this cover art so distinctly! My dad gave me this copy when I was too young to get into a fantasy novel, but the art always stuck with me. 8mo

I‘ve been devouring the books on my iPad that I have from the library but decided that it‘s time to switch to a paper book while on vacation. Easier reading on the beach. I‘ve had this on my shelf for a while but never realized it was set in Positano which is one of my favorite destinations.

Carrie Soto Is Back | Taylor Jenkins Reid
post image
Pickpick

I was SO excited when I discovered a new book was coming from Taylor Jenkins Reid. Then, when I saw the title, I couldn't place Carrie Soto in my recollection for previous novels. It turns out that she was only a mention and a side character in “Malibu.“ But she becomes a full and memorable character quickly.

Full review: https://laurensreads.blogspot.com/2022/05/carrie-soto-is-back-by-taylor-jenkins....

marleed So much fun. I went back and read about Mick Riva in Evelyn Hugo to prep tor Malibu Rising. Then following TJR‘s upcoming book announcement went back and read who Carrie was to the Riva siblings in anticipation of the August release. It‘s so fun to get those Easter eggs! 2y

Other Birds: A Novel | Sarah Addison Allen
post image
Pickpick

I would like to live in a world imagined and written by Sarah Addison Allen. There's a little shimmer of the mystical and magical that offsets the ordinary and it is lovely.

In this new novel, we spent time with a cast of characters that are brought to the Dellawisp Condos by chance...or is it?

Damnation Spring | Ash Davidson

This is one of those books that leaves you feeling like you've been somewhere. I have been in this town, driven these windy, washed-out roads along the cliffs, sloshed through creeks and looked upon a ridge filled with redwoods. I've mourned their losses and worried along with these people. #LMPBC Round 14, Group B
