November 9: A Novel | Colleen Hoover
post image
Pickpick

It's November 9, which means I would be remiss if I hadn't finished this re-read last night... technically super early this morning. I listened to it on audio this go around and it was every bit as good as I remember. This is a beautiful story of loss, regret, love, and forgiveness. Cannot recommend it enough! 5🌟

Ahhhhhh so excited to be approved for this on #NetGalley ! I really enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to the sequel. It'll be interesting to see where the story goes.

LibrarianRyan Hi. 👋🏻 5d
vkois88 @LibrarianRyan Hello!! ❤❤❤ I hope you're doing well 5d
LibrarianRyan @vkois88 I am. You? It seems the questionnaire brought people into my feed I haven‘t seen in a while. So that has been an awesome side effect. 5d

vkois88 @LibrarianRyan I'm doing well... I haven't been as active online with work and a crazy toddler but I definitely miss everyone. I guess I missed the questionnaire? There are certainly more people to keep up with, it seems 5d
LibrarianRyan @vkois88 yes. Lots. And it seems like some old timers disappeared either because they have gotten busy, or because it doesn‘t pull up into my feed anymore. So I have said hi to lots of old faces today. 5d

YOU GUYS!!! One of my FAVORITE Holiday reads is now a Netflix Original Movie!!! I'm SO excited and can't wait for November 8th... I usually love October and Halloween is my one of my favorite holidays, but this year I'm just over it. October was a long, crappy month. ANYWAY - if you haven't, run out and read this adorable book before catching the movie ❤⛄❄🎄

ShyBookOwl Sorry October let you down! I'm not ready to think about winter lol 2w

#CurrentlyReading a release from this year that I snagged at the local used book shop. Not too far in, since I only started it at nap time & wouldn't you know... she napped maybe 45 min today 😑 Trying to get a thriller in since I've been doing an awful job of reading as much as I wanted to this month. I'm dragging at this point. Also getting a cold right before the Celtic Festival. Never fails. Wait all year for an event, get sick. That's life 😂

Also #CurrentlyReading this one on the Kindle. Borrowed from #Libby. The story of Mary Shelley Black, and takes place in San Diego during the flu epidemic. Featuring a side cast of characters including someone who takes photos of people with the spirits of their lost loved ones. I'm only a few chapters in so far, but I'm definitely intrigued.

There is nothing like waking up to what you know is going to be a rough day and having the kind, thoughtful reassurances of Lin-Manuel Miranda that everything will, in fact, be okay. His philosophical prose is enough to bring tears to your eyes some days, and literally make you laugh out loud the next. The underlying key factor here though is this... Be kind. Be kind to yourself. ⬇⬇

vkois88 Be kind to others. Just be kind. Kindness can create happiness for others where there was none, and radiate eminently. Thank you, Lin-Manuel for this reminder! 5🌟 2mo

Squad | Mariah MacCarthy
post image
Pickpick

I found this one while looking up books that feature a #Squad for the #DisneyReadathon. I couldn't think of anything I had that really sparked an interest yet still kept in line with the actual prompt... so when Squad popped up and the tagline was "Heathers meets Mean Girls..." I knew I needed to read it. I'm so glad I did! The sarcastic, petty conversations held between the main character & practically EVERYONE (including herself) ⬇

vkois88 literally had me laughing out loud at some parts. Also unexpected were the LGBTQ+ reps involved. Overall this was a fun, quick read. 4🌟 3mo

The Heir | Kiera Cass

Mehso-so

Princess Eadlyn is a self-centered, entitled brat. Or, as Hermione would put it, she has the emotional range of a teaspoon. When told she would have to take part in a selection to appease her nation, she fights her parents practically every step of the way. The most enjoyable scenes in this book were those of her interacting with her parents, my favorite characters from the last book, or when she finally shows a bit more character... ⬇

vkois88 but that cliff hanger ending? Idk if I can wait 2 weeks to get the last book. I'll have to console myself with all the novellas in the meantime! 3.5/4🌟 Purely based on my disdain for the Princess throughout the first 2/3 of the book! 3mo
LA_Mead I‘m with you on that one...I just didn‘t like this new character that much 3mo
vkois88 @LA_Mead it's so disappointing since I loved the others so much... and especially bc it's hard to picture such a brat coming from those two people! 3mo

Superman: Dawnbreaker | Matt de la Pea

I'm not typically a Superman fan (or DC, for that matter), but I have been indulging in the DC Icons Series. This was actually a well-written back story of Clark Kent as a teenager, finding out about his powers, and trying to save Smallville's minority population. The subject matter hits a little too close to home these days. However, we all need hope for a real life Superman to swoop in for justice and to eradicate the prejudices. 4🌟

This book is NOT my typical cup of tea but I've always been drawn to it by the beauty of its cover. When I saw the audiobook was available through #Libby, I jumped on it. It was a blind leap of faith since I actually didn't know much about it. I'm glad I did. Despite definite trigger warnings & parts that are capable of just making you feel uncomfortable... it was SO well written! Also happy for, again, unexpected LGBT rep for #PrideMonth ❤ 4.5🌟

Honestly, Idk what I was expecting from this one... I really like Tan, but I have NO idea who Nikki Levy is, or who most of the other performers are. This was one of my free audiobooks in honor of Pride Month, but I feel like it honestly just fell flat. Over produced, forced segments of chitchat between what were essentially stand up sessions that honestly weren't that funny. Sure, a couple were chuckle worthy... buuuuut mostly not. The most ⬇

vkois88 impactful story about coming to terms with one's identity was the last one presented by an actor (whose name escapes me just now). I'd probably give this one 2 or 2.5🌟 4mo

Honestly, I wasn't really a fan of this one.

I enjoyed Maas' take on the back story of Selina Kyle. It was interesting to see the transition into a badass with an agenda. The tension between Kyle and Luke Fox (Batwing) was steamy, slightly trashy, and overdrawn.
