"How many men would she have to turn to dust before one took her seriously?" โœต โœต โœต Have you ever read a book that you didnโ€™t love but you were highly aware that it was more your fault than the bookโ€™s? โœต โœต โœต I know that probably sounds strange. Let me explain. I am definitely a mood reader. And a couple of years ago I made myself read Vicious even though I wasnโ€™t really in the right mood for it. So while I enjoyed it for the most part, I didnโ€™t love it as much as I expected to. But I think I would have if I had just waited for the right time to read it. โœต โœต โœต And now I am even more sure of it because I read the sequel, Vengeful, last month and I absolutely adored it. โœต โœต โœต Eventually I think I will go back and give Vicious a proper shot to wow me the way it probably would have if I hadnโ€™t been so stubborn the first time ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Because Vengeful was excellent. And I think Vicious probably is too ๐Ÿค” โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” Please follow me: -@4_bookslovers #books #reading #weekend #weekendreading #moredaystoread #betterreading #booklover #bookstagram #instabook #lenadunham #bookpile #bookstack #readinginbed #vscobook #vscocam #biblio #bibliophile #novel #vsco #read #reading #igreads #bookworm #bookstagram #fiction #yafiction #reader #reads #readers #readings ๐Ÿ“–

๐Ÿ‘‹ So excited to join this wonderful community with my very first ! This is what my morning looks like because itโ€™s the last week of my month off, and Iโ€™m soaking up every last opportunity to read outside with my cup of coffee! I added Next Year in Havana to my summer stack because it was the @reesesbookclubxhellosunshine pick this month, and Iโ€™ll do anything @reesewitherspoon tells me to, duh. Iโ€™m about halfway through and loving the vivid descriptions of Cuba ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ! Usually when I read books with multiple perspectives, I find myself particularly drawn to one of the stories over the others- does this happen to anyone else? However in this one, Iโ€™m genuinely enjoying both our fierce narrators equally!

Happy Saturday! What is everyone reading today? Iโ€™ve got some exciting Markus Zusak news today and unboxing my September @parnassusnext rep box! . โœจ Septemberโ€™s Parnassus Next came with not only a copy of โ€œDarius The Great Is Not Okayโ€ by Adib Khorram but two art print trading cards. Since Parnassus Next comes with a signed first edition each month, itโ€™s always a huge surprise and treat when they add some extras! โ€œDarius The Great Is Not Okayโ€ was not on my radar before it arrived, but I have to admit that first line in the description got me: โ€œDarius Kellner speaks better Klingon than Farsi, and he knows more about Hobbit social cues than Persian ones.โ€ (here for it). Iโ€™ll put the full synopsis in the comments. . โœจ NOW if youโ€™re a Markus Zusak fan, eleven years after the release of his most acclaimed YA novel โ€œThe Book Thiefโ€, Zusak is releasing โ€œBridge of Clayโ€. Parnassus Next will be selling exclusive bundles containing PERSONALIZED copies of Bridge of Clay and an autographed copy of โ€œThe Book Thiefโ€ delivered with free shipping! You need to email: orders@parnassusbooks.net by October 11 at 8 p.m. CST, and include exactly how you would like your copy of "Bridge of Clay โ€œ personalized. . โœจ Do you have a favorite signed book that you prize?

Next Year in Havana- the ๐Ÿ”ด in my July rainbow โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ This book follows Elisa, a young sugar heiress living in Cuba during the tumultuous revolution and Marisol, the granddaughter she raised, who travels to Havana for the first time to return her grandmotherโ€™s ashes to her homeland. The two stories parallel each other in many ways. Both women fall in love with men who are passionate about change disrupting the status quo and both are forced to weigh their connection to Cuba and its people against the harsh realities of Fidelโ€™s regime. What I Loved- I was fascinated by some of the specifics about the Cuban revolution that were sprinkled throughout this novel! I repeatedly found myself pulling up google to learn more about the key players and events that were mentioned in the book. The two protagonists were well developed characters, and I liked and related to them! The language was pretty cheesy at times, especially when it came to the romantic storylines, which is not always my cup of tea. For the most part though I thought it worked for this book and didnโ€™t mind! . . . . . . . . . . .

Iโ€™ve been both eagerly anticipating and sort of dreading reading this! I always have this small fear, when authorโ€™s return to their worlds in books, that it will somehow ruin all the good feelings of the previous books. . โœจ Today Iโ€™m on the @penguinteen blog tour and laying out all my feelings for you. โ€œMap of Daysโ€ starts off right where โ€œLibrary of Soulsโ€ finished, so if you thought this was maybe a spin off, it is not. This is a direct continuation of the Miss Peregrineโ€™s trilogy and we get to explore Peculiardom in the United States (which is a mess) and we get to learn more about Abe Portman and what he was doing here. . โœจ โ€œMap of Daysโ€ really knew how to amp itself up over the course of the book. In the beginning it was fun just to get back into it and see how everyone was doing after the events of โ€œLibrary of Soulsโ€. And even as discoveries and new mysteries began to unfold, it remained at the enjoyable plodding pace where I was having fun being back in the world and learning all the new things, but it wasnโ€™t really thrilling me. . โœจ Around the last 200 pages, after all the reintroduction and set up was in place, things really started to get interesting. The politics and the lawlessness of Peculiardom in the United States was frustrating. Miss Peregrine was frustrating. ALL THE CHARACTERS WERE FRUSTRATING! But, not in the way that I was hating it, in the way that you start to see a big shift coming and changes to get excited about. It felt like Ransom Riggs was starting this internal bomb that was going to explode and shake up the series in a way that I was living for. Instead of that small fear that I would be upset if he changed things up, I started to feel hungry for that. . โœจ The final few chapters! I just have to say, Iโ€™M HERE FOR IT! (It also looks like a small detail from the film was incorporated.)Anyway, Iโ€™m honestly thrilled and excited to see where this story goes, and it was fun to be reminded just how cool the idea of him writing a story around real old photos heโ€™s found is.

An Anonymous Girl โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ ๐ŸŽ„ I had such high hopes for the follow up from the authors of The Wife Between Us (which is actually one of the wrapped books that Iโ€™m gifting this year), and I was thrilled to see it as a book of the month option! In a lot of ways it didnโ€™t disappoint; the characters were very well developed, the concept for the plot was so solid, and the writing had that chilling edge you expect from a thriller. I couldnโ€™t put it down because I couldnโ€™t wait to get to a big reveal or a twist, but it never really happened. There are certainly some things along the way that people may not have predicted, but I suspect that most readers would have at least a vague idea of what was coming. Even though I was disappointed by the ending, it was a very enjoyable read for me with an innovative plot, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend! ๐ŸŽ„ Did anyone else who read this one feel the same? Anyone think it was not predictable? Iโ€™d love to hear your thoughts!! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

What is one book that you sped through? On average, it takes me about 2 or 3 days to finish a book, since I only read at night. But I sped through โ€œWhat If Itโ€™s Usโ€ in one night because it was just so fun and readable. (Thank you to @epicreads for sending me this review copy). ๐Ÿ“ฆ While this is full of hilarious dialogue and Harry Potter references, on top of a magical rom-com level meet cute, there was also a foundation of realness that ran through every relationship in the story. There was always this level of โ€œnot perfectโ€ that kept catching me off guard and I loved the realness of it that made it so relatable. Relationships are hard! And somehow Becky and Adam made me like reading a story that mimicked how a real relationship begins rather than the whirlwind obsession and devotion Iโ€™m used to. . ๐Ÿ“ฆ Beneath the surface of this story, there is a lot going on too. Lots of issues and topics being addressed of various sizes. Can you maintain a friendship after youโ€™ve had a romantic relationship with someone from your friend group? What issues do we still have as a society about race? And how the spectrum of sexuality is broader than straight or gay. . ๐Ÿ“ฆ This book was a reminder to me of what good and real friendships and family relationships look like. They are messy and they are amazing if we can be honest, accepting, and forgiving. It also opened my eyes to a couple things I never considered would come up or be confusing or scary in first time same-sex relationships.
