This was a strange book. Every time Molly bleeds, a new molly grows as an exact duplicate, who then tries to kill her. She is raised in isolation and taught to murder her doppelgangers before they can. The story is told in such a detached way that makes it intriguing and a bit disturbing. Honestly not sure how I feel about it but I'm curious enough to seek out the next book so soft pick

September update of my #readingbracket2022

They Called Us Enemy | George Takei, Justin Eisinger, Steven Scott
post image
Pickpick

This was a powerful graphic memoir from George Takei, detailing his experience in Japanese internment camps during his childhood. He goes into great detail about this period of history and the discrimination that Japanese Americans endured, much of which is glossed over in history lessons. He draws parallels to similar events in recent years and hopes that shining a light on the mistakes of our past can help avoid repeating them in the future.

The Gravity of Us | Phillip Stamper-Halpin

Mehso-so

Cal's dad just became one of the astronauts to work on the Mars mission, which means they have to move to Texas and pretend to be a perfect American family for the cameras. Cal doesn't want to stop posting his viral news videos but the media surrounding the launch wants to control the story. In the midst of all this, he falls for Leon, whose mom is also on the mission. I wanted to like this more than I did. The romance felt forced and unnecessary.

This was the last book in this nerdy mm romance series. This was about Lewis, the PA to two well-known cosplayers, who has ADHD and falls for a famous actor. While it is about his and Jason's romance, it also touches on queer representation in television and fighting for a happy ending.

Still catching up on September reviews. This was another fun quick audiobook. It follows Lydia Bennet after she marries Wickham and gets shipped off to the north. She tells the story from her perspective and it's really fun to see her side of the whole affair, after she has matured a few years and has to deal with the shame of her mistake. This was a full production read by a cast, would recommend to any #pemberlittens for something a bit unique

This was a quick listen (about 2 hours) told through unplayed voicemails and phone calls. I liked the format a lot, it was an interesting concept that was well executed. The story itself is about a couple throughout their relationship and the things they left unsaid. It shows how important communication is in relationships.

This was just as fun as the first book! We get to follow Baja's story and I adore the grumpy/sunshine fake dating trope! Add in dinosaur shapeshifter shenanigans and fossil heists on a cruise ship and I am all in! Jackson was the cutest cocky cowboy, I loved the two of them together.

I'm glad I picked up Murderbot's story again. This one was a lot more fun than the first one, I think maybe because I'm now familiar with the world and Murderbot's character. This one follows the journey to try to find out about its past. On the way we meet ART, a bot-driven transport ship who decides to help out. I loved the two's back and forth relationship.

This book was so lovely! Meena is a photojournalist who lives her life constantly traveling but suddenly inherits a home in Boston from a woman she's never met. The house of apartments is inhabited by Indian aunties and their families. Meena is torn between figuring out her connection to this community and continuing to avoid putting down roots. This was a character-driven story with a wonderful insight into Indian immigrants and their culture.

Working my way through the Queen of Mystery catalogue. In this one, Poirot is entreated to prove the innocence of Elinor Carlisle, who is on trial for murder and all evidence points to her guilt. This one had me guessing until the end. Lots of drama concerning inheritance and scorned love.

I was gonna wait to start this new university series until I finished some of my other ongoing ones but I couldn't resist when I found out this book stars two of the side characters from Saxon James' other series. So here we are. I liked this one. Lots of discussion about slut shaming and demi rep. The boys are horrible communicators but still lovable (they're only in college after all). I will get back to the rest of this series... eventually...

As much as I was looking forward to this one, it was so hard for me to pick up and start. Sequels can go either way and I was a bit content to stay in the HFN from book one. But I did end up enjoying it once I got started. Luc and Oliver still have a lot of issues to work out and the character development felt realistic. As always, the coworkers and friends were hilarious and the best part

Second in this fun series, I liked it just as much. After his best friend came out as bi in book one, Robbie is curious to explore his own sexuality. He's the life of the party and tries to find one of his brothers who's down for some experimental fun. But surprisingly the guy who's willing is risk manager Brandon. Their normal bickering about parties and having a good time has them more compatible than they expected #SeriesRead2022 @TheSpineView
