This week I finished reading
64. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell ✰5✰ I really loved this book. I could relate to the anxiety so much. I loved that there was a such a focus on stories and writing. And I could also relate heavily to being abandoned by a parent and them not really deserving your forgiveness. I enjoyed this whole story and would love to read more about Cather.
65. The Deepest Breath by Meg Grehan ✰5✰ I couldn’t resist starting my June TBR early. This book was so lovely. It is written in verse, my favorite book format, and is about an eleven year old with anxiety and her first crush, on her friend Chloe. Her supportive mum is so wonderful to read about. She is the kind of single mother I aspire to be. I don’t know who I related to more, the mother, or Stevie, but I loved them both. I can’t wait to read more by this author.
66. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling ✰3✰ I read this for the Booktube Rereadathon prompt for April to reread a book from a genre you don’t usually read any more. I would guess fantasy is my least read genre. I have never made it through the Harry Potter series before, but I keep trying to love it. This book was okay, it was fun, but I’m still just not a huge Harry Potter fan. I listened to this one via audiobook and followed along in the physical book which made it more enjoyable and I might be able to make it through the rest of the series that way, but I’m not necessarily itching to continue right away.
67. The Guilds of Thanatikos by Ben Sanders ✰4✰ If you love D&D you will love this book. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the prompts for checks and experience points popping up throughout the story, but in the end the fun of experiencing a D&D session was greater than that mild oddness for me. I can’t wait for more adventures with these characters.
