#currentlyreading MELMOTH by Sarah Perry
.
As much as I love her books’ covers, I’m not a big fan of Perry’s writing. ESSEX SERPENT was just okay for me; I think it has a lot to do with her language and sentence structure. It’s very run-on-ish. BUT I wanted to give MELMOTH a chance, since so many other readers, customers of mine included, rave about her books.

#currentlyreading STRANGE DAYS by Constantine Singer | on sale 12/4
.
So far this is a totally trippy book; and I really like it for the oddness/time-traveling/alien factor. It’s a totally unique story - I haven’t read anything like this before. STRANGE DAYS is a steady action story full of futuristic alien tech and time travel.
.
Skater and amateur guitarist Alex Mata begins to hear a voice in his head telling him something bad is coming. One day, Alex returns home to find his parents murdered by a shadowy alien invader who disappears just as quickly as it struck. On the run, Alex is led to a compound run by tech guru Jeffrey Sabazios, the only person who believes aliens are truly coming - and they will spell doom for the human race. Alex, with Sabazios’ guidance, becomes a Witness: one of a genetically special group of teens who have the ability to travel through time and ultimately save the world. On a literal race against time, Alex must learn who to trust, what to believe, and who he needs to stop before it’s too late.

Found a perfect little book nook while out and about today. I could’ve stayed there for hours!

This used book stand is part of my local antique emporium - and it keeps growing! Mostly non-fiction books: history, biographies, scientific, etc. but still a cool little hideaway for a bookworm!

#currentlyreading FOUR DEAD QUEENS by Astrid Scholte | on sale 2/26/19
.
Can’t say I’m really feeling this one. It’s a fantasy-ish novel about a land split in four and ruled by four very different queens. But someone is murdering them one by one. Without heirs, there is no one to descend the throne and their world will fall into chaos and war. When Concordian pick-pocket Keralie steals memory comm disks that reveal to her the four queen’s murders in graphic detail, she allies herself with a messenger from Eonia to find out who the disks were intended for and who is responsible for murdering the nation’s queens.
.
It’s not a terrible plot idea, but I don’t care for Keralie much and the world building isn’t as well-developed as it could be. I’m only 100 pages in, so perhaps it will improve. But I can’t find myself getting into the story like I normally would.

#currentlyreading A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY by Brigid Kemmerer | on sale 1/29/19
.
Brigid Kemmerer is on the top of my favorite YA authors I’ve discovered in the last few years list. I LOVE her contemporary romances and am so excited to get a new fantasy novel from her!
.
I’m half way through and am really enjoying the world building and the pacing. It’s pretty much your typical fairytale reimagining with those morally good and morally bad themes, a moody prince who just needed the right girl to change his into a charming hero who saves the day. And of course Kemmerer makes Harper, the female character, stronger and more stubborn than your traditional fairytale heroines. It’s a bit predictable and cliche in that regard, but Kemmerer is a great writer, so worth the read.

Big CONGRATS to Jarrett Krosoczka for making the National Book Award Long List for his graphic memoir HEY, KIDDO.
.
HEY, KIDDO is a wonderfully honest and tender memoir of Jarrett Krosoczka’s childhood. Krosoczka grew up with his maternal grandparents because of his mother’s heroin addiction. Every page is intimate; Krosoczka includes his actual drawings and correspondences with his mother throughout his adolescence. His grandparents are hilarious constants, supporting and loving him. A beautiful tribute and an important look at the impact of addiction on families/kids. Warning: I cried multiple times reading this!
.
I got to meet Jarrett this past weekend and tell him in person how beautiful his book is. I’m so happy for him 👍🏻😭
