A lovely #Jewish fairy tale - and it tested my Yiddish. A good find off the new acquisition shelf of the #library.

I loved this one. Smart and weird and so possible, but also so not. And Lois Clubs are a real thing! I have celiac disease and can‘t even eat bread but it made me want to build an oven. #botm #sourdough

Sweet and fun; not great literature - but a unique romance. I enjoyed it.

I was excited about this one, but ended up not really feeling it. I never got invested in the characters and all their (way too many) quirks. Most likely will not continue with this trilogy unless desperate for reading material.

Loved this one! I actually ordered a copy for my personal library after borrowing this one from the library. As a Jew myself, Miryem‘s story was so compelling!

Finished this one today. It was a fun romp through my childhood. Oh, the #BASIC ... #memories. Fun for computer #nerds, old #millennials, fans of boy posses a la StrangerThings. No sci-fi, but it has that vibe.

Even my old lady cat enjoyed Queenie. Sure, she rates books based on lap time quality, but still. #botm #librarybook #cat #contemporaryfiction

This one was hard to get into, but I was 💯 sold by the end. I like the strange ones, and this book did not disappoint. #scifi #botm #wtfjusthappened #everythingbuttheyawn

I can‘t get over how fun, weird, and just unexpectedly delightful this book was. OWEN FOREVER. #scifi #adventure #urbanplanning

The writing was enjoyable, but I fear I may be too far removed from young millennialhood to really have it speak to me. The characters were all so good - just the drama (which was totally appropriate for their ages) was just... so dramatic. G-d, was I so dramatic? Probably. Just thinking about it hurts. Just like Connell and Marianne hurt. Moral: Being young sucks, figuring out who you are sucks, heartbreak sucks, and then it‘s all over. FML.
