As the tin/Broke And The Bookish website says, we’ll be listing series that we haven’t gotten around to reading just yet.
As I can’t think of any series I want to start but haven’t yet, I will talk about books I had to return to the library because I didn’t finish them on time.
Iron Cast by Destiny Soria
I really liked the little I managed to read of this and will continue at a less busy time.
The Butterfly Garden – Dot Hutchison
I heard that this is not for the faint of heart but Hutchison’s prose is so beautiful.
Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno Garcia
I have trouble with male protagonists so the going was a bit tough and just when I got into it, someone put the book on hold and I ran out of time to read it.
Outrun the Moon – Stacey Lee
I NEED TO READ THIS.
Nettle King – Katharine Harbour
I need to read this as well.
This is a bit of a tough one for me, because I don’t tend to read a lot of series – I have a short attention span, and I just can’t commit to a series. These Early Readers series do look pretty adorable, though, and I can’t wait to read them. I’m particularly interested in Ruby Lu – Ruby is a plucky Chinese-American girl, and I have a large Chinese population in my area who are rarely represented in Early Readers!
Yash named most of mine. Heh.
Saints and Boxers by Gene Luen Yang have been on my tbr list f-o-r-e-v-e-r.
The Reader and The Speaker by Tracey Chee. The covers are beautiful and the inside blurb looks just as appealing.
Not Your Sidekick by C. B. Lee, although I’ll admit that until today I did not know there was a sequel.
And then there are series that I haven’t been able to read the sequels to because the library doesn’t have them yet.
The Girl with the Glass Bird by Esme Kerr was excellent… but the library only has the audiobook for the sequel.
Katherine Woodfine’s Sinclair’s Mysteries was off to a solid start (and by solid I mean devious and entertaining) with The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow.
My beloved comic book addictions: Gotham Academy, Lumberjanes, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Ms. Marvel.
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme started by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is best dads in literature. Janet Several best dads on my list aren’t biological fathers, but exemplary guardians, mentors, and father-figures. Hyperlinked names lead to reviews; hyperlinked titles lead to the actual text. (Yay, webcomics!) Ballister Blackheart, Nimona’s nominal boss […]
Top Ten Tuesday is a feature by The Broke And The Bookish and this week’s topic should be easy: additions to our respective TBR lists. Yash My chosen “genre” is superhero stories: Heroine Complex by Sarah Kuhn: I mentioned this one last time, I think? How I love the tagline? “Being a superheroine is hard. […]
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is most anticipated books for the second half of 2017. Janet I’m going to veer off the topic slightly: not necessarily new and anticipated releases, but books I’ve never read (and might not have heard of before) that I […]
Top Ten Tuesday is a feature from The Broke and the Bookish and this week we get a “Summer Freebie”–so we’re going to take the opportunity to talk about books that are sunshine in the form of bound paper, the stories that make us feel warm, and the ones that make it easy to ignore the […]
Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish and this week’s topic is all about mothers. [I’ll leave each blogger to figure out what they want to talk about here.] Janet Mothers I’d like to know more about. (Short stories, anyone? *gazes pleadingly at authors*) The Queen Thief from Megan Whalen Turner’s Queen’s […]
Top Ten Tuesday is a feature from The Broke and the Bookish and this week we are making a list of the kinds of books we would like to see published. Like a manuscript wish-list, but uh, for readers not agents? Jane Oh boy, where do I even start?!? Here are just a few gaps […]
This week’s theme is one I’m pulling out of the hat. What are the next five books you are going to/plan to read? Nafiza I plan to read (in no particular order): The Sand Warrior by Mark Siegel et al A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi The Unquiet Dead by Ausma Zehanat Khan Sacrifice […]
Top Ten Tuesday is a feature from The Broke And The Bookish. This week, we discuss the things that instantly make us not want to read a book … Yash Romance between slave character and slaver character. I’m sure this can be done well, but most of the time it tends to be shit and […]
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Janet I don’t need to say it, do I? I want more protagonists who are disabled, Indigenous, POC, or queer, written by #ownvoices authors. Beyond that, here’s what makes me want to pick up a book. Friendship. Seriously, well-developed friendships where both/all […]
