I am off this week! To learn more about any of these books, check out my read bookshelf on Goodreads.
My book club chose this (adult) book (What My Bones Know), and I thought it was a powerful memoir. Stephanie Foo shares how her abuse as a child led to C-PTSD (complex post-traumatic stress disorder). I learned a lot from her story.
Everyone’s been talking about this (also adult) book (The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab), so I had to try it! I enjoyed it, but I felt like it was really long. It felt a bit repetitive in parts (but I suppose that’s the point of the story!).
I loved The Life and Crimes of Hoodie Rosen by Isaac Blum. It reminded me so much of my childhood! I liked the first three-quarters the most, and then there’s a turn in events, and I kind of hoped it hadn’t taken that direction. That said, I loved every minute of this book!
I am going to be rereading Promise Boys by Nick Brooks because my class is reading it! I’ve linked my previous review!
Tuesday: Global by Eoin Colfer and Andrew Donkin, Illustrated by Giovanni Rigano

I just picked up Promise Boys from the library. Now I have to carve out time to read it!
It looks like you’ve been reading some really cool books, Ricki! What My Bones Know sounds painful but really powerful, and I’ve seen quite a bit of praise for Promise Boys lately too. I’ve heard some mixed feelings about The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, so that’s fair that you felt it was a little slow. Thanks so much for the wonderful post!
Great picks! Have a wonderful week! 🙂
Thanks for continuing to host this! Your books last week look like they are ones that make a person think.
