Enjoyed this teen sci-fi story about alternate universes.

Ninth House | Leigh Bardugo

Excellent book. I could not put it down or stop listening as the case may be. It was an adult Harry Potter. I love Potter so it was right up my alley. There were some major sexual situations that may be a trigger so be aware. Bardugo said in an interview that she worried it might be too much but she felt it was necessary because of how things truly were when she attended Yale.

ginaking This arrived with my Book of the Month shipment today. Excited to read it! 4d

I enjoyed the story and the characters. A psychics daughter meets up with boys from the private school looking for lay lines. There is murder, magic, and friendship. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Good book but not that creepy. Of course I used to be a horror movie junkie so it may frighten you. Good bs. Evil is the theme of this book. Who will win?

An interesting remake of Hans Christian Anderson‘s Little Mermaid. Except for the sex, this was a really great story. I loved the ending most of all. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Many of you have been posting gorgeous October pictures. Here‘s one of October in south Louisiana. In other words, we don‘t have fall. It is still in the 80‘s and 90‘s here. We are getting a cool front tonight though. We still won‘t have those gorgeous colors many of you have.

This was a decent book but a little slow in the middle. I liked the ending. A young child is rescued from the river and there are numerous people who would claim her for their own. The family with the kidnapped child, the grandfather whose missing a granddaughter, the woman missing a sister, and a nurse who would just like to have the child. Who is the child? Where did she come from?
