Currently Reading: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by @lbardugo I’ve had this reserved at the library for over a year now; since I’ve known of its existence, really. I’m so excited! I finished Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia on Thursday, and I’ve been working on this ever since. I’m little more a hundred pages in, and I’m in love with it. A brand new, feminist, badass take on one of my favorite DC heroines? Yes, yes, please, I am all for this, and I can’t wait for more in this brand new, promising series! What are you guys currently reading this weekend?

Currently Reading: Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero! I just finished When I Am Through With You this morning, and it gutted me in the best kind of way. I’m definitely a fan of Stephanie Kuehn now, guys! Yay for brand new authors! Now on down the library stack, I go! I’m about forty pages into this, and I’m already loving it. Think Supernatural mashed with Scooby Doo and a ton of pop culture references and humor, and you’ve got something close to Meddling Kids. Plus, anything that’s an homage to one of my favorite childhood cartoons, and I’m all over it. Shout out to one of my libraries hooking me up, and Val, it’s so good so far, I can’t wait for you to read it! What are you guys currently reading this weekend?

Currently Reading: Miles Morales: Spiderman by Jason Reynolds! I just finished Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh, and I loved it. Definitely one of my favorite books of the year! I mean, Mulan set in feudal Japan? My little tiny girl self has been waiting for this my whole life. I can’t wait for the sequel! Now, on down the library stack, I go! @mrfidler picked this one for me, and I’m not even a chapter in. I love it so far. Plus, a diverse character for a hero like Spiderman? Yes, yes, please sign me up forever. What are you guys currently reading this weekend?

Currently Reading: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh! I finished Everyone We’ve Been on Thursday for one of my book clubs, and I’ve been working on this book ever since. I’ve been trying to dedicate time during my weekends to get some reading in since I’ve been so busy working during the week. I’m about one hundred pages in, and I’m really enjoying it! It’s like Mulan but set in feudal Japan, with lots of complex, flawed characters! It makes me glad that I have The Wrath and the Dawn on my shelf. Have you guys read any of her work? If so, what did you think? What are you guys currently reading this weekend?

Currently Reading: Daughter of the Burning City by @amandafoody! I just finished The Disappearances yesterday, and I really enjoyed it! It was beautifully written, dark and creepy, in a way that reminded me a lot of Stephen King in the early days. What a lovely, compelling debut! Plus, I loved the way that Shakespeare was tied into the plot. Major literary points for Shakespeare references. Now on down the library stack I go. I ordered this because it was a recommended book of July, and just look at that cover! Magic! Mysterious forces! A family of misfits! What could go wrong? I was so tired last night I could only manage to read the first chapter, so I’ll probably just have to hold off until next week. What are you guys currently reading this week?
