The second book in the Magisterium series takes place mostly away from the Magisterium itself, which I liked. I don't read my middle grades fiction, which is what I think this is, but basically this is ya without a romantic subplot. I get the sense t ...more

Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #2)

This book actually moved faster to me than the first book in the trilogy, which is rare for me with middle books. There's a lot of set up for the finale but the story has plenty of action in its own right, and Karou is even more badass in this one th ...more

After being left hanging by the second Tearling book, I really wanted a teen fantasy trilogy that I could actually finish. I had no interest in this when it came out but I actually really like the world building here. And while the love story kind of ...more

I totally forgot that this series takes place in the future so there were some moments early on where I was like whaaaaaaaaat? But once I got my bearings I really enjoyed it and now I'm frustrated that I have to wait like 10 months for the final entr ...more

I feel like I usually enjoy Leah Stewart's books, and this was not exception. Real talk, though, I just hated the old lady.

Clear rating
I don't have much to say about this book that hasn't already been said, but I did really like the structure and felt very drawn in by both Werner and Marie-Laure. I think my favorite part of reading this was imagining Etienne's house. I want to go to ...more

Clear rating
This was the last of the five contenders for the first-year read committee, and it was okay. I don't think I've ever read a Sue Monk Kidd book, but I did like the structure here - alternating narrative perspectives between Sarah Grimke and one of her ...more

Looking for Palestine by Najla Said
Rate this book
Clear rating
Another one for work. A good memoir of Said's childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood. She mostly deals with her identity issues as a Palestinian-Lebanese-American, and while it was interesting enough, it didn't have the impact I was expecting fr ...more

Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson

I read this for a committee at work and it was fantastic, sad, frustrating, and inspiring to read. The author is a lawyer who has been working with wrongfully imprisoned people, people on death row, juveniles tried as adults and sentenced to life in ...more
