It‘s so thin! Judging by the movie, I thought this was gonna be a brick. I‘m even more excited now to see how all that concept is distilled into

I LOVED this weird, creepy graphic novel/manga. Totally here for the bizarro premise and unrelenting dread. This was an entertaining Sunday afternoon read!

MirrorMask I must read this!!! 😀😀 1y
EliNeedsMoreShelves You should try this one. 1y

Dread Nation Sneak Peek | Justina Ireland

Who‘s read Dread Nation? I‘m getting SERIOUS Bella and Edward vibes in the first couple hundred pages. “Oh this beautiful boy must hate me because his face turns sour every time we meet!” Hmm.

EliNeedsMoreShelves Uh oh. Sounds fishy 1y
EliNeedsMoreShelves I just quit on a book last night because it was, like, EXACTLY The Hunger Games. 1y

Any Man | Amber Tamblyn

Super interesting how this novel flips the script and by doing so reveals all the absurdity and horror that victims/survivors of sexual assault face. It‘s not as clear cut as it might seem. I enjoyed how it was written in multiple styles, not just straight prose. I admire Amber Tamblyn as a person and an actor, in addition to her activism and writing, so this one gets all the stars from me. Should mention though, it‘s not for the faint of heart.

Whew. Been a while since a book brought me to actual tears. This was long, but worth it. The dystopian fantasy element is really engaging, and the feeling throughout of wondering and wanting to know what future this IS is gripping.

EliNeedsMoreShelves I had a feeling this would be fantastic... 1y
carolynnrising Yep. It‘s in your pile! 1y
