This is the first book of a new graphic novel series by Brandon Sanderson. The artwork is phenomenal It is rich and detailed. This volume is really the introduction of the characters, the worlds and the background of the story.

This account of Jennette McCurdy's childhood was shocking. McCurdy captures her experiences in a detailed timeline of events that left me speechless and unable to put the memoir down/

I am a Kevin Fedarko fan ever since The Emerald Mile. He did not disappoint. Injected with humor, it was a pleasure to picture each and every day of his adventure. Great book!

The Alloy Of Law

This book had a lot of Misborn references and did a good job updating the world. The plot wasn't as big as the previous series, but the characters are a lot of fun. Wayne is funny.

The Wife Between Us

Mild psychological thriller - enough to keep you enthralled but not enough to keep you up at night - a perfect balance.

The Legend Of Auntie Po
by Shing Yin Khor

View in Library Catalog



Not a bad historical fiction story, but the author states that their intention is to tell the tale of a woman-loving Chinese-American girl, and I feel like THAT part misses the mark. The graphic novel does a really great job talking about the struggles of loggers and Chinese-Americans in an interesting way, but it is stronger historical fiction than LGBTQ+ fiction.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves: The Road To Neverwinter
by Jaleigh Johnson

This book gives the backstory to the character Edgin from The Dungeons & Dragons Honor among Thieves movie. I was not really fond of this character in the movie, and I found his character in this book to be equally distasteful. The book was fine as a backstory of this character, but I continue to dislike the character in general. Understanding his backstory and motivations did not make me in any way more sympathetic to the character.

In The Lives Of Puppets

Beautiful writing, but slow start - I had to keep reminding myself to pick it back up, because the beginning didn't really "grab" me the way some books do. But it picked to a lot in the second half and I ended up loving it it. Great writing, and interesting characters that you really come to care about.

I'm not sure I would have ever picked this book up if not for the Summer Reading Challenge. Because of reading this, I now have a new genre---historical fiction. I could not put this book down. I now need to investigate the NYPL to see which parts are actually true.
