I love the "medical textbook" feel of these paperbacks!
Also sneaking in my back to Hogwarts pic!
Seems silly to stop when I'm so close to the halfway point AND so close to finishing this book, but my eyes are getting sleepy and this kitten wants his snuggle time! Also, apologies for the Marvel bookmark in a DC book. #24in48 #24in48readathon #kittenlitten #catsoflitsy
I didn't think this would be for me (haven't been into alternative histories), but I loved this so much I immediately downloaded the sequel! Felix and Yael's relationship is immensely interesting to me and I am eager to see how her actions play out for him. My guess is NOT SO GREAT.
I probably don't need to convince you to read this but I will anyway: it's even better than Everything, Everything - Natasha and Daniel meet under unexpected and unfortunate circumstances - both struggling with family and their future. They're perfect for each other in an imperfect situation. Uber romantic and every character is enthralling and sympathetic for different reasons! Realistic but hopeful - MUST READ!
I found this book charming! A teen suggested it for book group and though I found the premise a little weird, it ended up being a breath of fresh air. The silly plot is well balanced by great relationships and self-aware narration. We ate blackberries for King Edward.
God bless you and your musical theatre references, Kate Leth!
So far I'm enjoying the miniseries much more than the book series, but above all I enjoyed the coconut cream cake I made to enjoy while watching The Reptile Room I and II. Not sure how long I can deal with the "adults never listen to children" trope though - certainly not for 13 books!
My boyfriend and I are having a mini-book club/cooking club where we'll be reading each book then watching its episodes alongside dinner inspired by the book! Puttenesca and episodes 1 and 2 scheduled for Monday and I'm already 1/3 done reading!
The writing has always been the weak point of this series, but this volume was particularly bad. Plotting was super-choppy, and even the art fell flat for me a bit. I did enjoy seeing Pizzazz's vulnerable side and that Rio is more of a stand-up guy in this series. I'll probably stop here, despite my fierce Jen fan girl love.
Not the TGIF Teenage Witch you remember! This was fun, campy, kinda gross if you can't handle bloody occult type of horror, and very well rendered. Definitely a little pin-up like with the ladies art but it fit in with the world of the comic and is balanced by its many powerful women. Some dark twists and fun winks to the characters and the genre. Plus, Salem!
