Heartbroken! #MyLitBox is closing. 😭 This box was amazing, and filled such a need for diverse books. I loved it and it will be sorely missed.

I stayed up way too late reading last night and I greatly resent work for keeping me from this book.

There are actually threeish cats in the picture. Panda's tail in between Ginger and the book.

I went to Barnes and Noble yesterday to pick up a board game and walked out with two bags of stuff. Surprisingly, only one book! I started reading this and was hooked in the first chapter.

I also visited a cat cafe and pet all the kitties, including four month old kittens. It was a good day!

The last Baldwin Village book, and it was as delightful as I've come to expect from Jackie Lau. I wish it had been longer. I particularly wanted more of Peter's crazy parents! I'm sad it's done but there's a new series to start!

Mehso-so

More sick day reading because I needed something lighter than Watchmaker. These were okay. They were simple, quick, and reminded me of the Nancy Drews I devoured in middle school. The covers are awful though, as she's supposed to be 18 (being perpetually 18 is her thing) but looks like she's 12. Ugh.

Bklover I just read the first one- got it free on Prime. Her constant irritation about not getting to investigate got on my nerves a bit, and then found out that you have to read the second book to get the ending! 4w
Bklover Oh, and hope you feel better!!! 4w
silentrequiem @Bklover The first three were on sale a few weeks back and I picked them up. They weren't great but they weren't awful. I suspect 12 year old me would have loved them. 4w
Bklover I agree- I adored them way back when! 4w

Summer of '69 | Elin Hilderbrand
post image
Mehso-so

Torn between a pick and so-so. Engaging enough but reading about the woes of attractive and privileged white folk got tiresome after a while. Good beach reading but not quite meaty enough for fall.

marleed I hold this book as an example of storytelling that bugs me. Summer of 69 had so many American historical moments that deserve to be considered at their 50 year anniversaries. Retrofitting all that history into the experiences of a single family bugged me in a way that‘s really kind of silly - and perhaps I should get over! 4w

I loved this "post-happily ever after" story about Cinderella's stepsisters. It's a feminist story of finding your own happy ending instead of the one society thinks you should have. It's so different from other fairy tale inspired books I've read.

Caspian dramatically "died" when I leaned the book against him. ?

A fantastic collection of short stories. I enjoyed them all. They're dark and gritty and so very good.

I read this while I was in Vegas last weekend and it was super fun, quick, and cute. It made me really miss the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Also there's one rather steamy sex scene which I reached while in the shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel. 😳

My friend borrowed it and I didn't take a picture. So screenshot from #botm instead.

I was all about a genderqueer Cinderella retelling. There was some really interesting plot points but it didn't quite come together for me. Also having Cyn end up with their stepsisters was a bit too close to incest for my taste.
