This is a delightful middle grade fantasy about a girl named Willa who lives in the land of Ordinary Folk between two warring witch covens. She soon finds out that she is a witch and has until her next birthday to harness her magic and choose a coven. Or she‘ll explode. No big deal. This book is just plain fun. The story is exciting, Willa‘s character is thoughtful, and the spells are silly. This will be a lighthearted romp for 10-12 year-olds.

Friend picked this up at a thrift store for me because of the awkward title. Fun overall. The main character got annoying at times pining over a previous love (with whom she was never actually in a relationship). Other than that, it was entertaining.

Any Hoopla fans out there? I have often used it for light (often comics) reading before bed. Right now I am borrowing an audiobook for while I'm doing chores around the house.

What do you use Hoopla for?

tpixie Hoopla seems to have a lot of things that CloudLibrary and Libby do not have. The library joined to get Hoopla quit using it, so I need to go to a nearby town to get a library membership there so I can get Hoopla again! 4mo
DivineDiana When I cannot find an audiobook on Libby, I try Hoopla! Sometimes, I‘m successful! 4mo
sherri @tpixie Oh no! Hopefully you can find another library to join. It's nice to have options. 4mo
sherri @DivineDiana I have Libby but haven't used it much. I need to take some time with it. So many people love it. 4mo

This Harlequin Presents book from 1991 has some funny lines, which I will be sure to share, but this one is truth.

The StoryGraph has captivated my attention for the day. I imported my Goodreads data and now have all sorts of pretty charts about my reading, like these two: my most read genres for the year so far, which I have compared to my all time most read genres. Amazing. Thanks @Clwojick for mentioning this tool!

Had brunch with a couple of book-lover friends. One of them brought the other two of us old Harlequin paperbacks she thrifted. She is exceptional at finding the eyebrow raising titles, cover art, descriptions, and character names. My other friend got Low Country Liar with a leading man named Slade Blackwell.

How have I not read this author before? This book was sent to me from this year's Hachette Nook Club Brunch. I'm only a few pages in and love the tone of this book already. Author blurb says Mike Gayle has written 13 novels, so I will have plenty of blacklist if this finishes as good as it starts.

sherri @SamAnne @tpixie I preferred the stories in the beginning. They drew me in. The rest of it was fine, but the first chunk was my favorite. 4mo
sherri @tpixie I have Lab Girl on my shelf from a library sale. Thanks for the recommendation! I'll have to get to that one soon. 4mo
sherri @Megabooks It is a lengthy book, for sure. I had to take my time with it and pausing a few times. I ended up returning the library edition and buying my own copy so I didn't feel rushed. 4mo
sherri @Cathythoughts I recall that as well. I underlined a few passages. 4mo

I dislike when marketing mismatches content. The book flap had me thinking this was a spy story set in the Galapagos. I was so ready for that. Instead it's about a strained friendship. I bailed 90 pages in with zero mention of islands. Pretty cover, though.

BookishMarginalia That‘s disappointing! 1y

Great cozy mystery with recipes at the end for all the delicious-sounding Philipino food. I rarely bake, but I had to try Lila's Ube Crinkles. Ube = purple yam = yummy and pretty. I recommend the book and the cookies.

I love library book sale weekend! I find so many interesting, well-loved titles, some of which I've never heard of. Day 2 is $5 per bag (and I am a very efficient bag packer). $10 got me 32 books and 2 magazines.

*2 novels (I'm a nonfiction lover)
*1 poetry book (from 1974)
*10 hardcover
*5 books about writing
*2 about photography
*4 with numbers in the title
*15 written by women
*1 memoir
*7 about religion/spirituality
*2 contain meditations

Never read this in school. Now, many years later, I have been getting hints from the universe to give it a try. When I saw this beautiful edition on a poetry table right next to the door upon walking into my local bookshop, I took it as a final sign and brought it home with me. Loving it so far from just the introduction and very beginning passages.

SamAnne I‘ve read before but I really want to read this translation. This year for sure! 2y
sherri @SamAnne So far, this translation is easy to understand. It also has maps in the front and summaries, notes, and glossary of names and places in the back. Very helpful! 2y

Delicates | Brenna Thummler

Pickpick

Loved Sheets when it first came out and equally adore this follow up called Delicates.

There is a lot to unpack in this story. Middle school is a delicate time of emotional growth and Brenna Thumper cradles it carefully to bring depth to these characters' feelings.

Check the content warnings if you have sensitivities.

The art is beautiful and so is the story. 5/5 stars

Love the show, love Amy Bruni, but... This book needs extreme editing. The chapter titles are snappy and interesting, yet the content is choppy, unfocused, and doesn't give new information beyond what you see in the show. Basically the intro about Amy's childhood paranormal experiences was great. It should have been an article. :(

The Italian | Ann Radcliffe
post image

Purchased this book used from my college bookstore around 1998 when I took a romance class for my English degree. Our professor had us read portions of The Italian to get a sense of early gothic novels, followed by the full Northanger Abbey.

After reading an article in Bella Grace Magazine last night about dark academia and the pull of classics in winter, I was drawn to pull this off my shelf.

I am living in this book right now, with journal and book darts at the ready. I began learning about doshas a year ago, and @iamsahararose has a way of making it all click for me. I have her previous books Idiot's Guide to Ayurveda and Eat Feel Fresh, as well as her Yogic Path oracle deck and journal. Everything Sahara makes is informative and beautiful. I'm halfway through this one with tons of notes.
