Past Favorites | Do I Still Love Them?

It is only natural that you as a person will like some things more than others. Maybe you like couscous but not rice. Bright pink but not pastel pink. Burritos but not tacos (in which case you are wrong but I will accept your wrongness with grace). You get my point. However, today I tried an old favorite (marinated mushrooms) for the first time in years and I just didn’t like them anymore. Big sad.

The same is true with books. Even if you read books with similar themes there will be some stories you like more than others. Along that vein, I got to wondering if the books I loved in the past would still be favorites for me today.

Most Anticipated | Second Quarter 2022

The first quarter of 2022 gave us so many great new titles. We had The City of Dusk by Tara Sim, Electric Idol by Katee Robert, and This Woven Kingdom by Tahereh Mafi just to name a few.

Let’s take a peak at the books that have caught my eye for the second quarter of 2022.

Easier on my brain to just tidy up.

What Should I Read Next?

We have all done it. We finish a book, are in the mood to read another, but just can’t decide what to read next. No matter whether you are a TBR type reader or a mood reader, I feel like we have all been there at one point or another. Unread books run amok in our homes, our “want to read” files are miles long, ARCs are demanding our attention, but nothing is quite hitting the spot.

So, I thought today we would sit together and take a gander at a few of the books that are most drawing my eye right now and see if we can’t find something to read.
