Welcome to another edition of the Monster Report. The Monster Report explores the book happenings of Jessica and Kristen. Whether it be what we got in our mailboxes, what books we are currently hiding in, or fun stuff to look forward to this week at The Book Monsters, you can find it here. The Monster Report is inspired by Alea‘s This Week in Books, Tynga’s Stacking the Shelves, and Kathryn at the Book Date‘s It’s Monday, What are you Reading? Also, Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers also host a kidlit version of It’s Monday, What are you Reading?
I actually won a giveaway for Running with Lions.
Girls of Paper and Fire was amazing, it was everything I could have wanted in a fantasy not to mention the amazing sapphic romance it has. I gave it 5/5. Descendant was a huge dissapointment for me. I did a whole review for it on here so if you are curious you can read it, I gave it 2/5. Running with Lions was amazing, I kept saying I would stop reading after one more chapter but I just kept going because it was so good. 5/5
Books added to TBR:
Read this Week:
Wild Beauty was a bit of a slow read – very flowery literally and figuratively and I enjoyed it but it took me a while to get through. The other three books I read are all audiobooks. Black Panther The Young Prince was a fun fast paced book that I’d consider to putting in my elementary school for my 4th and 5th graders. My Life Next Door was a surprisingly good read about relationships, politics, and moral ethics. Trigger Warning was several short stories by Gaiman, I especially enjoyed the one at the end of the book that relates to American Gods, which I just recently read. I also love that Gaiman narrates his own books. I could listen to him all day.
This week at The Book Monsters, we…
That is all for us this week. So until next week, stay scary Monsters.
