Just finished Feral Youth! While anthologies aren’t really my thing, the ones that Shaun David Hutchinson edits are different as they aim to tell a story through multiple povs, each written by different authors. 
Check it out.

Currently reading A Short History of the Girl Next Door. I’m 100 pages into it, and I’m interested so far. I’ve heard the best part of this book is the second half, and I’m nearly there so I’m excited and scared.

In line to hear John Green speak tonight and spending some time reading some of @carliesorosiak’s book in line. It’s been a long 48 hours, and I still haven’t had time to finish it, but I love it so far!! #books #booklove #booknerd #booklover #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookworm #bookgeek #ya #yalit #youngadult #youngadultbooks #ifbirdsflyback #carliesorosiak
Currently reading If Birds Fly Back by @carliesorosiak. A little over halfway through, and I’m really enjoying it so far. Unfortunately, it’s been quite the emotional day so I’m done reading for the night. I’m looking forward to Saturday when I should get the time to finish this!

I accidentally finished Starfish last night because it was that good. It’s an intensely emotional read, but it’s so good. Please check it out.

Currently reading Starfish by @akemidawnbowman and reading If Birds Fly Back by @carliesorosiak. I’m alternating for when Starfish gets too heavy for my mind at that exact moment to handle. 
Speaking of which, the Starfish author’s website has content warnings listed for the book. While society has made great light of these, it’s helpful for readers who face mental health challenges and may not be able to handle everything in the book at that time...or know they can but will have to take more time. It’s been super helpful lately for me.

After some recent heavy reads, I wanted to try for something lighter. While the subject is heavy (the intersection of sexuality and religion), the book so far is not. I’m about 100 pages into this, and it’s fitting the bill for what I need right now.

It’s a super rainy day in Illinois so I’m spending some time finally getting started on this book. So far, it’s quite different than what I thought it’d be like, but I’m enjoying it still. 
I am hoping that the weather clears up as I have to plans to do a walking ghost tour in Chicago tonight. Hopefully it still goes in!

Just finished this ARC and oh man.... @calebroehrig’s forthcoming novel White Rabbit once agains blends aspects of a thriller with aspects of a contemporary. This time, unlike in Last Seen Leaving, the thriller aspect wins out. 
After Rufus gets a mysterious phone call from his half-sister April begging for help, he ends up on about a 12 hour long epic journey to find the person who actually killed April’s boyfriend while framing her. Of course, Rufus’s life has to be further complicated by the fact that his ex-boyfriend Sebastian comes along for the journey. 
The contemporary aspect comes in with Sebastian’s story as he knows he is attracted to Rufus but is struggling with his sexuality. I ultimately liked that Roehrig never ended up putting a label on Sebastian. This contemporary aspect flows naturally out of Rufus and Sebastian being put into a very bizarre situation and works very well within the story. 
Although I read a large amount of thrillers, I kept guessing until the end. At one point, I think I suspected every single character mentioned. 
Roehrig avoids the sophomore slump with this second published novel. Coming out in April 2018, you’ll want to read this one.

I feel like it became a recently trendy thing to hate John Green, and I don’t get it. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I am legitimately excited for this because even if I don’t like it, there’s still meaning. After the runaway success of The Fault in Our Stars, JG believed that he’d never publish again because of all of the mental health complications writing was causing. At the very least, this book truly represents to me that what you thought was lost due to mental health reasons can come back again. 
Now to start reading it.

I finished The Girl With the Red Balloon today. If you haven’t heard about it yet, Ellie is an American girl going to Germany for a school trip. She feels guilty about this because her grandfather is a Holocaust survivor. While in Berlin, she grabs a balloon is suddenly whisked back in time to 1988 in East Berlin. 
While the story does take place primarily in 1988, we also learn about her grandpa in the 1940s as well. It was a deeply thoughtful read, and I am really glad that I heard about this book.

Let’s talk about @calebroehrig. Caleb Roehrig is one of the few authors in YA these days that can really pull off a good mystery. I liked that this book didn’t just focus on the mystery though. It also focused on Flynn realizing that he cannot deny who he is any longer. 
I got to meet Caleb Roehrig yesterday, and he is legitimately one of the sweetest people. I’m fairly convinced that YA authors are just about the nicest people on the planet to their fans. 
I needed yesterday, and I’m glad I went. It was a good day.

If you haven’t heard of Moxie yet, you are missing out. I read this on Friday night, and it’s so good. It will infuriate you while also making you cheer for Moxie, a group of female students fed up with the misogynistic ways at their high school. 
It’s a fantastic read, and I highly recommend it. (And yes the stars and hearts on my hand have symbolism in the book.) #books #booklove #booknerd #booklover #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookworm #bookgeek #ya #yalit #youngadult #youngadultbooks #moxie #jennifermathieu #reading #awesomebook

I woke up this morning excited because I would have the time to finish Haunting the Deep! 
It was sooooo good! Even if you haven’t read the first one How to Hang a Witch (which I highly recommend that you do), you can read this one alone. (Some spoilers for the first one but still understandable.) Read it!!

I’ve actually been able to consistently read again. Granted, I’ve avoided certain books where I know suicidal thoughts are a for-sure topic, but I read one where it was brought up where I didn’t know about it and was still able to read it safely. 
What that means is that I’m spending today (and maybe tomorrow) reading @adriana_mather’s new novel Haunting the Deep! The follow up to How to Hang a Witch is so far absolutely delightful and spooky. It’s also fitting that it’s a dreary fall day in Illinois as I read this which adds to the spooky factor. 
I’m really enjoying it so far!!! (P.S. yes Adriana Mather, you’ve seen this picture before on my personal Twitter account. I don’t steal content. I just reuse my own stuff. 😊) #books #booklove #booknerd #booklover #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookworm #bookgeek #ya #yalit #youngadult #youngadultbooks #hauntingthedeep #adrianamather #reading #amreading #halloween #halloweendecor

Got this book from the library today! I’ll freely admit that I don’t know too much about it other than it sounds good PLUS @jeffzentner blurbed it. So I grabbed it and didn’t let go of it as I perused the shelves...and ended up only taking this one home. “In Jeff Zentner’s book recommendations, I trust.” #books #booklove #booknerd #booklover #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookworm #bookgeek #ya #yalit #youngadult #youngadultbooks #chasinglight #ifbirdsflyback #carliesorosiak

Really simple picture just to share that I actually finished a book today. While I did read two last weekend, Monday was a super emotional day for me, and I was left physically and emotionally fatigued from a mental breakdown. I thought all my reading groove was gone again. So finishing this book today was a big deal...especially given the content. I ended up really liking it too, and I cannot believe I read nearly 300 pages today. I thought that part of me was gone for good. (P.S. I’m sorry if all you want to do is look at pretty pictures of books and not read this captions about the aftermath trauma has caused in regards to my reading.) #books #booklove #booknerd #booklover #bookaddict #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookworm #bookgeek #bookstagramfeature #thegoodgoodbye #carlabuckley

Another new book out today. I fully admit that I have a love for Harlan Coben novels, even if I find them a little predictable sometimes. 
The library had my hold for me on release day, and I love when that rare event happens! I’m hoping that I get to read this one this week. I’m so behind on reading that it’s becoming overwhelming....but I remind myself that reading is supposed to be fun.
