Whisper Network: A Novel | Chandler Baker
Pickpick

There were things I didn‘t love about this book—some of the characters infuriated me, and it felt a bit slow at times. Still, the setting—a corporate law department in the middle of a Me Too moment—felt real and relatable, and I think this book is an important read.

I feel like I have 43 billion things to do this week, but I‘m taking a few minutes to breathe by reading and watching reality tv.

But Ms. Sandberg was right about something. We had to lean in.

It was the only way to hear the whispers.

It is a common saying that women are delicate creatures, flowers, eggs, anything that may be crushed in a moment‘s carelessness. If I had ever believed it, I no longer did.

This book made me feel seen. I have the same chronic illness as Chloe, and I have literally never related to a character more than I related to Chloe Brown. If you have any sort of chronic illness (or even if you don‘t), I can‘t recommend this book highly enough. It was funny, romantic, and honest. I couldn‘t put it down last night, and it‘s been a while since a book has made me feel like that!

American Royals | Katharine McGee
Pickpick

I really enjoyed this book! The setting was cool because it was a familiar yet different America; it was interesting to think about how a monarchy might have changed things. I generally liked the characters too, especially Samantha and Beatrice. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

This book was a super creative take on a romance. The love triangle between Holly, Nathan, and Marc was definitely a more traditional trope, but it didn't feel cliched. It was made more interesting by the original legacy game created by Shannon. This book made me wish that game was real because it sounded like a lot of fun! Available October 15, 2019.

Framed as a letter to her bff, this YA novel follows two month's of JL's sophomore year. JL was a very relatable character, and I thought the framed narrative-esque format worked well for this book. It made sense that, even though they'd been fighting, all JL wanted to do was confide in Aubrey about her family troubles, the fate of the butterflies, her relationship with Max, and, most of all, what happened to their friendship.

The Woman Upstairs | Ruth Heald

Mehso-so

This book had some great twists. I liked that I really wasn't sure who the “bad guy“ was for most of the book .I also liked the flashbacks. I thought it was an interesting dynamic to add to the creepy history of the house. As Katie explored the house, the flashbacks started to make more sense and the suspense escalated. I would totally read a book that tells more about what was happening with the original family in the house.

Betty Bites Back: Stories to Scare the Patriarchy | Cori McCarthy, Amanda Sun, Mindy McGinnis, Lindsey Klingele, Kate Karyus Quinn, Demitria Lunetta, Liz Coley, Shannon Green, Elaine Griffin, Kamerhe Lane, Jenna Lehne, Emilee Martell, Tracie Martin, Kyrie McCauley, Melody Simpson
Pickpick

I enjoyed this collection of short stories with feminist and horror themes. Feminist lit and horror work well together, especially in our current political climate. My personal faves were “What She Left Behind“ by E.R. Griffin and “Shadows“ by Demitria Lunetta. This is a great way to get your feet wet in horror. Most of the stories aren't super gory. A lot of them feel more psychological or supernatural in nature, which I love!

The Dead Girls Club | Damien Walters
Pickpick

I thought that Damien Angelica Walters wrote about the melodrama of being twelve and the complexities that accompany preteen friendships with startling accuracy. The emotions that twelve-year-old Heather felt towards Becca and the other members of the Dead Girls Club were very realistic to me. On a more serious note, this book is an interesting take on what we, especially as children, are willing to believe when we're desperate.

The Better Liar | Tanen Jones
Pickpick

Thank you to #netgalley for providing me with an ARC of this book!
I really enjoyed this book! I thought Leslie, Robin, and Mary were complex characters that I was eager to know more about. I thought the beginning was a little slow, but once I started to learn about the characters' backstories, the tension started to amplify and I got much more caught up in the story. I totally didn't see the twists at the end coming AT ALL! Definitely recommend.

I have such a backlog of books on my Kindle app, so that‘s what I‘ve been working on recently! They‘ve been hit or miss, but so far I‘m enjoying this one (especially compared to the last one I finished)

First of this round of library books--done! This was a quick read and it was pretty enjoyable...I mean, as enjoyable as a book about a misogynistic dystopia can be.
