The Towering Sky | Katharine McGee
Pickpick

This was a great conclusion to a series. The ending was kind of ambiguous and up to interpretation. I loved and hated the ending. I loved the characters and the plot. I will miss this gossip scandal like world and its crazy cast of richly developed and complex characters.

The Testaments | Margaret Atwood

I love this book. It was even better than the handmaid's tale. There were plenty of plot twists. I loved all of the characters. My two favorite had to be Nicole and Agnes. I can't wait to discuss this next week at book club

I had tried reading this book when it first came out and I didnt like it for some reason. Now 7 years later I listened to it in audiobook form and enjoyed it a heck of a lot more. I found it compelling and fantastical. Marissa Meyer really knows how to write ya fantasy and I cant wait to read the next book in the series.

This book of is a modern classic. It is chilling and realistic. I can't wait to read the testaments

Girl in Pieces | Kathleen Glasgow
Pickpick

This book was so powerful, heartwrenching and relatable. i found this all the more relatable because of my own struggle with my mental health. I loved all the characters and surprisingly i also liked the doomed relationship between Riley and Charlotte. I liked the ending and that she learns to cope with her trauma and her mental illness. One quote that stuck with me was "We live, we bleed, we die." this quote is sad but also highly realistic.

I liked this book, but didn't love it. I didn't see the point in having the main black character be so stereotypical, she is the stereotypical abused black woman and I did not like it. However, I did like the friendship dynamic between Campbell and her.

I read this for my gender and communication class and I loved it. it opened my eyes to another part of the LGBTQ+ community. I found it not only educational but highly entertaining and inspirational as well.

Inland | Ta Obreht
Pickpick

This was a moving, powerful and poignant novel. I loved the twist of history in this book. I really enjoyed reading this author. I probably would have never picked up this book if it weren't for the barnes and noble book club but I definitely want to read more books by this author. I enjoyed the characters especially Nora and Toby. I love the strength and the brokenness of Nora.

This book was like a cross between pretty little liars and glee. I loved the characters and elements in this book. Read this book if you want total creepy vibes and a great setting.

If you have seen the movie don't waste your time. In fact this book is an example of the rare occurrence where the movie is better than the book.

This is a great coming of age story. It was funny and nostalgic. I am glad my sister told me to read this again because I had forgotten what happened in this book.

I really enjoyed this novella. I love Feyre's and Rhysand's relationship. They have the perfect amount of romance and leadership in their relationship as high lord and high lady. Cant wait to read more by this author and the next book in the series.

Love from A to Z | S. K. Ali
Pickpick

i really enjoyed this novel. Well this seems like it is just another The fault in our stars it is not. It is so much more than that. It explores not only racism but Islamaphobia as well. I thought the novel handled not only the mentioned issues really well but also Multiple scolorisis as well. Both of these issues of Islamaphobia and Ms are rarely addressed in novels, especially in the world of Ya books.

The Nickel Boys: A Novel | Colson Whitehead
Pickpick

I really enjoyed this book . I thought this book was going to be more graphic then it was. I thought this book should have or could have been longer than it was. I would have appreciated more detail and more characterization because I enjoyed both main characters a lot. I appreciated the change from women's issues and feminist revolution type novels to the civil rights movement and the treatment of African Americans in the South.

Deep Blue | Jennifer Donnelly
Bailedbailed

This book completely fell flat for me. The plot was uninteresting and I did not care about the characters at all. I am surprised I even made it halfway through the book because it was so unimpressive. The main character was the cliche princess who did not want to be a princess and I am sick of this character trope being used.

I wanted to like this book I really did but the characters were flat and cliche. I applaud the diversity in this novel but sadly the story just wasn't for me. I am deeply disappointed this book didnt have the spark or emotion I wanted

Wilder Girls | Rory Power
Pickpick

This was an engrossing novel, I really enjoyed the horror element of this novel and the suspense. I did not like the fact that there seemed to be no conclusion. the only thing that could solve this problem is a sequel, so I hope there is one. I liked the plot and the idea of the tox. I also liked the characters. I can't wait to discuss this at the book club next month

This was a great vampire novel. I wish there was a sequel to say what happened to Tana if she became a vampire or not. I really liked all the characters and the plot. Holly black is a great author of the creepy strange and weird.

KathyWheeler I‘m hoping she‘ll do a sequel as well. 5mo

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
Pickpick

This memoir was all too relatable.The memories and the journal writings of Tara Westover were sad and hopeful and all too crazy. I really enjoyed the fact that she did not let anything stop her from getting an education even if she had not been properly enrolled at school or taught in a homeschool environment all that well.

Blood Water Paint | Joy McCullough
Pickpick

This was a powerful and moving novel. The issues in this book were addressed both realistic and empathetically. I think what made this even more powerful is not only the fact that I listened to this as an audiobook but that this story took place during the 1700's which shows that sexual assault happened even back then and is ongoing thing today.

We Hunt the Flame | Hafsah Faizal
Mehso-so

I liked this book but did not like it as much as I thought I would. I really love the world that Faizal has built but the characters fell short for me. I did not think that the main character did not have enough traits to make her a believable and she was too one dimensonal. The world and the plot was very Aladdin like which kept me hooked until the end. I only wish I could give this book a higher rating

Mrs. Everything | Jennifer Weiner
Pickpick

I really enjoyed this novel. This was the first book I've read by this author. I also do not read books in this genre very often and I was impressed by this author and this novel in general, I liked both characters but the character that resonated with me the most was Bethie. Jo's youngest daughter reminds me of my little sister. I also liked the issues adressed in this book.

All the Bright Places | Jennifer Niven

This was one of the best books I've ever read. In the vein of thirteen reasons why ot was as real and visceral as any book about suicide. Finch and violet were amazing. This was funny and sad at the same time.

Ever since I heard about this book I've wanted to read it. When the movie came out I wanted to rest it even more. Then I saw the movie and that is when I decided this month would be the month that I read it. I am so happy I finally did. With subtle differences compared to the movie I was entertained and intrigued to know what was going to happen next. The character of Simon is really fleshed out and has a great personality.

I was reluctant to pick this up because of a break up. As soon as I picked this up I couldn't believe I didn't pick this up sooner. Lara Jean and Peter is exactly what I needed. I giggled so much throughout this book that it was hilarious. This was a great sequel to the first one. Lara Jean is truly the most relatable character ever. She is innocent crafty and likes the idea of love just like me.

This was a highly imaginitive and amazing. I really enjoyed everything about this book. The characters the plot, the setting and especially the fairytale element. I really want to read more books by this author and the original fairytale "Snow white and Rose Red" I really enjoyed the queer elements to this book as well. This isn't your normal fairytale retelling.

I didnt like this book as much as i thought i would. I'm not sure why but I think it was a combination of high expectations and the writing. This was a collosal disappointment for me. this was my first book I've read by this author so maybe I'll give her other books a try.

LibrarianRyan I completely agree. It was touted so highly and it was a big let down for me as well.

Again, but Better | Christine Riccio
Pickpick

This novel was the epitome of cuteness and relatability. The main character Shane not only has social anxiety like me but totally nerds out on things. I really enjoyed all the pop culture references including the harry potter and Taylor swift ones. I really could relate to Shane's way of thinking and her thought process. The love interest in this book is adorable and unique.

This novel was my least favorite book out of the barnes and noble . It took me about halfway through the book to get into it. Once i got into it was better. I really enjoyed the time jumps and the history of this novel.
