This one was fun. Great characters, a neat take on the magical world building, an adorable pet dragon, AND it's the first in a series. Just checking off all of my boxes, one by one.

Blaine's Beast | Joel Abernathy

A Beauty and the Beast retelling but with werewolves?!? Yes please! I stayed up until 3AM to finish it in one sitting. It was a good story, it was well done, but I have to give it a so-so because the MC had a few character traits that irk me, usually to the point of bailing on a book. The premise and the writing kept me with this one, but I won't be rereading.

I have had the Longest Day but it is finally over and I survived! 🎉

I've been looking forward to this GN since it hit shelves a few weeks ago, so I ordered some takeout and am settling in with this guy.

If you need me, call someone else. I'm reading. 😛

I'm fine. ???

(Also, if Alpine doesn't make her MCU debut soon, we riot. MCU!Bucky needs a cat looking after him.)

My work is hosting a "Wellness Wednesday" session around the concepts in this book, so I decided to read it ahead of time. There wasn't anything new to me here, but it was still an enjoyable read. Looking forward to the session to see what recommendations they have as well.

Fascinating. Devastating.

The use of language was soul-shakingly effective. I found myself gasping in places, not because of the subject matter (although that happened too) but because of the subversive descriptions that challenged history as I had learned it.

This book is a delight. I should note that the narrator is pretty clearly depressed (even if he doesn't define it as such), so the events in the novel are viewed through that lens and he tolerates things he probably shouldn't have to. Even still, the book is funny and sweet and the ending left me smiling.
