Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Button
Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, this is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. To learn more about each book, just click on the book cover!

Not a bad week for books. In fact, I have thoroughly been enjoying my foray back into YA. It only reminds me why I love the genre and need to read more of it.


Warcross by Marie Lu Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows Release by Patrick Ness
One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake Sleeper by MacKenzie Cadenhead

Marie Lu’s newest novel has been getting a ton of marketing attention over the past few months and with good reason. It is an excellent book. I tore through it, dropping pretty much everything I had planned to do just to read it. The only bad part is that now I have to wait forever for the last book in this duology.

Jodi Meadows’ latest trilogy is also impressive. First of all, dragons! Seriously, she makes me want one. Her heroine has major issues, which I liked. The story is detailed and offers a lot in the way of world-building. Plus, I loved how diverse her characters are. If I read between the lines, I don’t think there is a single non-POC character in the entire novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Patrick freaking Ness ripped out what was left of my heart after Adam Silvera destroyed it and smashed it to smithereens. What a book.

Kendare Blake’s sequel is so darn good. Damn her for making such compellingly flawed heroines!

I am going to give MacKenzie Cadenhead props for an interesting premise. Unfortunately, her story is heavily cliched with a laughable attempt at sounding scientific. I finished it if only because I wanted to see how she would wrap up her convoluted plot. It did keep me entertained though, so there is that.


Forest Dark by Nicole Krauss

Multiverses. Philosophy. This one got a little too metaphysical for my taste.


City of Miracles by Robert Jackson Bennett

I love this series!


Notorious RBG by Irin Carmon andShana Knizhnik

Halfway through and all I can say is thank you RBG!


I, Eliza Hamilton by Susan Holloway Scott
