Dear Martin | Nic Stone

Really enjoyed reading this book! A contemp fiction read, where our main character is a black high school student that attends a wealthy boarding school. He experiences his own encounter with police profiling which sparks an inner dialog via letters to Dr Martin Luther King Jr regarding how to process this event & others to come. A quick, powerful read - recommend! Also I met Nic Stone at y‘all fest & she‘s such a radiant soul!

TheBookKeepers @bookiebiker that is awesome!!! I‘m having such a hard time planning what all I‘m doing haha! Keynotes overlap with signings and fun panels!! What was your favorite thing last year? Is it super crowded? 1mo
BookieBiker @TheBookKeepers The YA Smackdown was really funny! My daughter (13) isn‘t into ARCs so we bypass that. You‘ll be able to get more signed than you think- some lines are super long but some are not. Last year and this year, I did a spreadsheet (I‘m a geeky mom) mapping out the authors she wanted to meet with the keynotes and panels she wanted to see and then went from there. Some authors have 2 signings so watch for that. Keynotes are great too. 1mo
BookieBiker @TheBookKeepers Panels are good too. Really, it‘s done well- organizers are so kind, it‘s very well done. You will have a great time! Be in touch if you‘d like - with such a small world, you‘ll be in line right in front of us/her for Holly Black 🤣 1mo

The Beautiful | Rene Ahdieh

Mehso-so

I was disappointed in this, sadly. I LOVE all of Renee Ahdieh‘s other books, but this one fell below my expectations. The story was ok, and the writing was extremely atmospheric. However, the story felt unoriginal. All the characters and plot lines could easily be dropped into another vampire/NOLA series I love....

Guys, I loved this book! I‘m surprised it has gotten so many low reviews. I love the descriptive writing the Adrienne Young offers in her stories. I always feel like I‘m alongside the characters in the woods or along the bitter sea. I really enjoyed this one! Vikings, rune casting, female leads. All my jam.

Bookzombie I really liked Sky In The Deep and this one is on my TBR. 🙂 1mo

Happy Halloween y‘all!

I loved this graphic novel! The fall theme was beautiful &exactly what I hoped it to be. A cute story about 2 friends who have worked together at the Pumpkin Patch for the past 3 years. Being seniors, this is the friends' last year &last night before leaving for college. The illustrations were beautiful, characters were lovable, & the plot line was pleasing. Fun for me, but also appropriate & enjoyed by my 11 year old son!

A few parts felt too easy/predictable, but overall I thought this was a good contemporary fiction YA novel. It covers important issues such as Philippine politics, the inner struggles of identity/duel citizenship, familial dynamics, & right vs wrong. Some parts the writing was breathtaking, & other times it lulled. I‘d say 4 ⭐️ read.

Crenshaw | Katherine Applegate

Panpan

I was not a huge fan of this book. The content was very heavy for my kiddo & overall mood was extremely melancholy. The story is about a family on the verge of homelessness for the 2nd time & the reappearance of our 5th grade MC imaginary friend, a cat named Crenshaw. I had hoped that Crenshaw was a stronger support & the ending packing a bigger punch to uplift the whole experience, but we were disappointed.

TheBookHippie This is a favorite in the school I‘m at, the kids were so pleased to see themselves in a book. 2mo

Wow, this was a stunning debut. The writing was impeccably executed & kept the reader engaged. A murder mystery novel, that is atmospherically enthralling. The reader follows along the MC who is tasked with solving a murder that happens at the end of the night. This character will experience the day 8 times all from the perspective/body of a new host. If you are in the mood for a thrilling murder mystery, check this book out! Perfect fall read.

kellyann28 I KNOW. That very last part of the book really threw me for a loop and I am very curious about that whole set up. Who runs that joint, what's the background scene happening there? Whatever became of Aiden and how does he feel now after the fact? 🤔 Need. More. Info. 2mo

Okay I know I‘m likely in the minority, but this is the 2nd Holly Black book I‘ve read & I just can‘t quite get into it. I‘m 50% through this current read and thinking about bailing...

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I didn‘t love this either. Haven‘t tried any of her others (except maybe the first curse workers book - which was interesting but I haven‘t gotten around to reading the rest so...) 2mo
TheBookKeepers @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I read Cruel Prince & didn‘t like it either. It wasn‘t awful....just more like “eh” IMO. I know many ppl love her books, so maybe it‘s just me 😅 2mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @TheBookKeepers, nahhh, I think she‘s probably one of those authors I would have connected with if I was a teen when I first read her books... I feel meh about so many popular authors (Holly Black, Cassandra Clare, Sarah J. Maas) and I‘m becoming more ok about it 😂 2mo
Johanna414 I struggle with her books - I usually really like the beginnings and then lose interest a third or halfway through and never finish them. The Cruel Prince is the only one of hers I‘ve finished so far, and I didn‘t love it. 2mo
TheBookKeepers Good to know I‘m not alone in this YA world! 🖤. I feel more validated in my bailing of this lol! @Johanna414 2mo

I‘m obsessed with this (new to me) series of children‘s biographies! Most focus on females, though the author is coming out w/ more male bios. Mary Shelley was my 1st bc I love her life story, & then I read this one about Zaha Hadid. I had no previous knowledge of this architect, but so happy to now know her story! Def. check out this series if you are looking for a children‘s biography book appropriate for all ages! “Little People, Big Dreams”

theladygreer These look fun! Thanks for sharing. 3mo
ReadingMeagan These are so cute! I‘ve seen the Agatha Christie one in stores 3mo

On the Come Up | Angie Thomas

Angie Thomas is such a wonderful author, in that her character development is always on point. This story also touches on social issues such as poverty, mild drug usage, gang violence, & media representation of black & female rappers. I loved listening to the audio version of this book, & think it added a fun element especially around the rap scenes. It was a good read, but THUG still has my heart!

emilyrose_x I want to read this so much! I loved THUG too :) 3mo
AileenRR I loved the reader of the audiobook! 3mo

I loved this vibrant book of children's poetry! The pages come alive as the seasons begin to change, and the imagery pairs wonderfully with each line. Beautiful illustrations and excellently composed poems. I really loved how at the end of the book it shows the full poems from where the exerts were pulled from and a thumbnail of the illustration used to convey that poem. Great book!

Woke up with a sore throat and the beginnings of a cold 👎. Even though I‘m in the middle of like 💯 other books right now, this book was calling to me. So I‘m gonna let sassy Alosa give me some comfort as I lather up EOs and vitamin packets. Big thanks to my bestie for buying this for a buddy read @kellyann28

Cathy_J Hope you feel better soon 3mo

Labor Day reading while we monitor Dorian. We are inland FL so don‘t plan to evacuate, but I‘ve got loads of snacks, flashlights, water, and books. So I‘m kinda looking forward to some power outages 😝

Lcsmcat Stay safe! 3mo
Kaila-ann I‘m in SC and just ready for this to be over. The anticipation is killing me lol. 3mo
TheBookKeepers @Kaila-ann right! Ugh and it‘s moving at whomping 1 mph 😳 schools keep having to close extra school days bc it‘s taken forever to get here.. at this rate they‘ll be out for an entire week and it won‘t make it here until the weekend. 3mo
Kaila-ann @TheBookKeepers it‘s nerve racking for sure. I don‘t have little ones but this waiting is terrible. 3mo

I devoured this book and can‘t wait for the next installment! It grasped my attention quickly and I couldn‘t put it down! The worldly descriptions allowed me to feel immersed in the tale & I was impressed with the complex characters. I‘m kinda in love with the villain of this story the most. Fans of YA & fantasy will enjoy this one!

kellyann28 Definitely will add this to my TBR! 3mo
TheBookKeepers Good bc I need to talk theories with someone about book 2! Hahaha @kellyann28 3mo

Ok so who else has casted a favorite character while reading a book?! Lol. It hit me this morning that Joseph Morgan would be an epic choice to play Ceren! Swoon! Have you read this book & agree or disagree with my choice? Or tell me of a book character + actor/actress you‘ve casted! Hoping I‘m not the only one who does this 😂😅

Jess_Franzino Almost done with this book (had a VERY scant amount of reading time over the past 4 days). Soooo good! Hm. This actor looks a bit too healthy for Ceren and his hair isn‘t long & pale enough. He actually looks a bit like how I picture Talin 😃 3mo

“Hiding our scars doesn‘t mean they‘re not there. Just as beauty cannot disguise who we really are beneath the surface.”

Really loving the atmospheric descriptions in this book! About half way through.
