So it looks like I read a lot but in reality I spent my entire week obsessing over Johnlock reading and writing fanfiction so to make up for that I just binged a bunch of manga to get page numbers for Team Hogwarts in the Booktube Games. I didn’t enjoy The Fifth Season as much as I hoped to, I really liked it at the end when everything started to come together but the first half of the book was really boring so I gave it a 3.5/5. All of the Superlovers manga volumes got 5/5, I have seen the anime and it left off at an annoying part so that is why I am now reading the manga and loving it. I really enjoyed A Sorrow Fierce and Falling, I thought it was a great ending to the series and I am happy with how all the characters ended up. I gave it a 4.5/5.
Currently Reading: Nothing because I AM TRASH.

I really enjoyed rereading Strange the Dreamer, I didn’t remember much about it. I’m excited to read the sequel now! I loved the audio version of Sea Witch, which was a lead up to the story of the Little Mermaid. The Cruel Prince was an awesome book, full of intrigue with a big twist at the end. I feel like the title gives some of it away… just as the sequel will for the next book.
I enjoyed my last titles for the Illinois State Monarch Readers Choice Awards and had a great time on Saturday helping select our 20 books that we will go on to read next school year with the kids.
