- Highway of Tears by Jessica McDiarmid: Yup, I’m still reading this non-fiction. Don’t worry, though… I’m not taking awhile with this one because I don’t like it. On the contrary, I’m finding it fascinating! Heartbreaking, yet fascinating. And I think that’s why I’m taking my time with it. I want to absorb all the information this book has to offer on the struggles First Nations women and girls have to deal with simply because of who they are. It’s a topic I know only a little about and I want to expand my knowledge. This book does it in a way that is both respectful to the victims and doesn’t feel like I’m sitting in a lecture. I’m really enjoying it, so far.
- Witchlings by Claribel A. Ortega: I finally started one of my most anticipated reads of the year and, so far, it’s just as magical as I was imagining! I’m only a few pages in, but there’s already a toad named Edgar Allan Toad and Seven is utterly endearing. I can’t wait to continue!
- The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi: I only finished one book since last week and I think it has ruined me for other YA fantasies for a few days bare minimum. Y’all, this was so good! Why did it take me so long to start this series?! I adored every aspect of this book, from the heist storyline to the beautiful backdrop of 1889 France. My favorite aspect, however, is most definitely the found family. PERFECTION! I was really trying not to get attached to our main cast of characters because it seems like that kind of series, but it’s no use. Séverin and his gang have thoroughly entrenched themselves in my heart. I need the next book immediately!
- Local Woman Missing by Mary Kubica: At this point, I know I’m not gonna get anywhere close to finishing my readathon TBRs 😅😂 So I’m focusing on reading my library books that are gonna be due back soon! This thriller also happens to be on my “12 friends, 12 recommendations” TBR, so that makes me feel a little less guilty. I’m eager to give this a go because I’ve been curious about whether I would enjoy Mary Kubica’s thrillers for awhile. Hopefully, I love it!
- The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary: This is a library book, on my readathon TBRs, and my “12 friends, 12 recommendations” TBR. It’s a triple threat! I haven’t read a romance yet, this month, so I figured ending the month off with one would be nice. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this one, as well, and I’m interested to see how I’m going to enjoy the “only one bed” trope. 2022 is the year of me testing out romance tropes to see which ones I love. Gotta love getting into a new genre.
