Teen Titans: Raven | Kami Garcia
post image
Pickpick

Can‘t begin to express how excited I was to find that one of my libraries on Overdrive has an extensive graphic novel selection, which I can apparently read with my Kindle app. Score!!! This first installment of the Teen Titans books was fun. Admittedly, I know very little about the Teen Titans (other than what my kid used to watch on CN). I look forward to future adventures in the series.

Only on Chapter 9, but this girl is annoying me. After only Chapter 1, I couldn‘t help but think it was the dumbest start to a female character that I‘ve ever read. Let‘s see if it gets better...

The Scholastic book fair is going on this week at school. Yesterday we scooped up four graphic novels and these two were reading before I even pulled out of my parking spot. They both finished before bed. Love love LOVE them 🥰

Well I finally finished this beast last night. When all is said and done, I‘m not really sure how I feel. My two main thoughts are that it was a bit predictable, and I was getting really sick of all the “close calls” towards the end. Also, I chose to read this because I wanted a scary book, but this didn‘t do it for me in that aspect. I‘ll have to mull this one over a bit.

Reviewsbylola The page count is causing me to put this one off. I have a feeling it won‘t be worth it for me. 3w
gibblr @Reviewsbylola Believe it or not, despite the 700 page count, it actually reads very quickly. 3w
WanderingBookaneer Yeah, I liked the journey, but hated the ending. 2w

Randomly saw and grabbed at the library yesterday. Usually with a collection of short stories, my interest varies. However, with this collection I have liked every single one. Not at all what I expected, but loved it just the same. She is my right amount of weird!!

Book(ish) mail is the best mail!! Today I received two older ARCs from the UK, one candle from the Nevernight series (final book is out today!), three candles from my beloved Three Dark Crowns series (final book also out today!), and the Illumicrate pin of the month also from Three Dark Crowns. It‘s a good day and the next week or so should be filled with more goodies related to those two series 😁

I usually never have a set TBR list for any given month, but August has a schedule (which was already thrown off a few days because I had to read the last #LMPBC book). Anyway, I‘ve started this baby so I can read the first two before Darkdawn releases in September. I also am planning a re-read of the Three Dark Crowns series. Let‘s see how this month goes!

Ok for all y‘all who‘ve read this thing...I was just sitting on the couch reading when I hear CHRISTMAS MUSIC with ALTERNATE LYRICS start coming from the SPIDER MAN movie my son is watching on TV. Hello?!? I‘m out! 😂

Randomly found this gem at the library last time we were there. I loved Dark Matter and can‘t wait to read Recursion, so this oldie was immediately intriguing. Told myself I wasn‘t going to check out any other books from the library since vacation is almost over, but I couldn‘t help myself 🤷🏻‍♀️ It‘s going very quickly!! Good so far!

She‘ll do anything in a last ditch effort to stay up later than she should. Last night it was asking to read for a bit. How can I say no to that?!?

Can I tell you how excited I am that I scored this from the library by my parents‘ house?!? I‘m also obsessed with this mini hardcover format, made even better by some crunchy library plastic covering. (I‘m weird, I know!) If it weren‘t under my mom‘s account, I might consider never bringing it back! 😂

Read four chapters of my son‘s summer reading, The Giver, with him today. Then right before bed, my daughter wanted to read one chapter of the tagged book. As soon as I curled the pages a little she said, “Be careful, mommy” and pointed at the pages. So proud she knows this is an offense without me even telling her 😂

Internment | Samira Ahmed

It‘s hard to criticize a book that is both relevant and necessary (and aimed at a younger population) in the United States of today. The negative events in the book are all too plausible at any moment. We think it will never happen, until one day it does. However, there were some aspects I just didn‘t like. Nevertheless, the overall message is still an important one of standing up for your rights and the rights of others. I would still recommend.

ReadingRover I totally agree with you‘re review. This book could totally happen at any moment today. It‘s very apropos to our time. But there were a lot things about it that made me crazy. Layla was so frustrating! She had no self control. And it was a little far fetched that the guard let her boyfriend sneak into the camp. Overall though I liked it. 6mo
gibblr @ReadingRover I wrote a longer one on Goodreads...here‘s what I had issues with: the unspoken seemingly romantic vibes between the MC and a guard, the MC‘s constant shock at being punished for resisting (although this was most likely made worse by the overly dramatic narrator), the fact that people were taken away and killed for lesser incidents than the ones the MC orchestrated, and what felt like too tidy of an ending. I did like it though! 6mo
ReadingRover I thought the same thing about her. She had no regard for her own safety or that of her family. She couldn‘t even just play along to get to the next step and find out what was going on when they first got to camp. She frustrated me to no end. You‘re also right about the unspoken romantic vibes between her and the guard. I‘m on Goodreads too! I do more reviews on there than here. I‘m going to look for you. What are you listed as? (edited) 6mo

I really enjoyed this book. The story within a story format was interesting and well done. Being written in verse, it went rather quickly but was no less hard hitting. I didn‘t even realize it was historical until I read the Afterword. Highly recommend since it is still UNFORTUNATELY relevant in our society today. It does involve sensitive issues though.

MallenNC I read this last summer and still think about it. I don't usually read verse novels but I liked this. 6mo
