Currently Reading: Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust! (Not my photo, only using for cover purposes.)  I finished Shimmer and Burn by Mary Taranta last week, and I’ve been working on this ever since. I’ve got about hundred pages left, and I’m enjoying it. A feminist retelling of Snow White, complete with magic, secrets, and betrayal? I am so on board. Shout out to my local library for getting it to me. 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: The Spell Book of the Lost and Found by Moira Fowley-Doyle! I just finished Miles Morales: Spiderman yesterday evening, and I really enjoyed it. Give me all the superhero novels I can read! Now, on down the library stack, I go! Again, @mrfidler picked this one for me, and I’m so stoked. First of all, look at that cover! It’s so pretty and autumn-like. And second of all, Moira won my heart last year when we read The Accident Season for our library book club. I’m not even one hundred pages in, and I’m absolutely sold! You could say that I’m spellbound! (Pun fully intended, sorry, not sorry.) Shout out to my local library for hooking me up! What are you guys currently reading this week?

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?
