    (Hello from the S&S Besties group!)

    I don’t have a blog, but I’ll do the tag here!

    1) Last night, I finished Trick Mirror by Jia Tolentino – a collection of essays on feminism, pop culture, etc. Not my fave but some good points, gave it 3/5 stars. Next I’ll be starting Liesl and Po by Lauren Oliver, a middle grade fantasy

    2) I don’t know if *everyone* loves it, but Lord of the Flies. It was an assigned book in my freshman year of high school and I LOATHED IT.

    3) I’d love to see Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone series adapted!!

    4) I don’t DNF often, but one that I had to give up on was The Obelisk Gate by NK Jemisin, the second book in the Broken Earth trilogy. It was just too much for me – I could hardly understand what was happening most of the time.

    5) Depends on the person of course, but one that I have recommended a lot to a variety of people is The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. It’s just a lovely, magical, beautifully written book that I think could appeal to lots of different kinds of readers.

    6) I don’t reread much at all – too many new books!! But I did reread Pride and Prejudice last year (only my second reading) because I wanted to revisit it to see if I still loved it as much as before, which of course I did

    7) Haha, well, see answer #2 – you’d have to pay me a lot of money to get me to read that one again!

    8) Okay, this is a little corny, but the Bedtime Book of Two-Minute Stories always reminds me of being 5 or 6 years old and having my Dad read to me before bed (usually the same few stories over and over because I loved them so much – Mickey Monkey’s Tricks, Candystripe’s Cousin, and Elizabeth’s Magic Rocking-Horse)

    9) LOLOL probably Holden Caulfield

    10) The “reveal” in I See You by Clare Macintosh, because I was really enjoying the book a lot, and then that twist ending was so damn cliché and felt like such a cheap way to end the story. No spoilers, of course, but it was something that’s been done so many times and is so problematic. I was bummed she went that way!
