First up in things to look forward to Horrorstor is getting a feature film adaption I really enjoyed the book. It was nicely creepy and a lot of fun. Might scare you off Ikea and big warehouse stores for a while but I’m hopeful for the movie!

At times I was absolutely going to DNF this book on account of it feeling like it was never going to end, among other things. But then I got to thinking if I didn’t finish I would never know if it ended or not or just kept running on and on.
And I felt like I had to finish. It was a vicious circle.
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
By: Suzanne Collins
So I wasn’t necessarily bummed this book was about Snow when the news dropped but I did have a moment of hm, 500 plus pages about Snow… this could be a chore.
But surprisingly it wasn’t! I flew through this and it’s one of my favorite reads of the year. I’ve heard some people admit they were disappointed it wasn’t about _______ (insert fav) but when it comes down to it I think this was the perfect choice.
The King of Crows
By: Libba Bray
With this book I’ve finished five series this year! Which considering how the rest of the year (crap) is going I’m taking that as reading win. I am a little torn on this one though because while I give high marks to the series overall and loved books 2 and 3 I hate to admit this one has some issues.

Yes Sarah J. Maas is back and she’s been unleashed (at least officially) on the “adult” book world.

I read this book ages ago probably around the time it was first published and remember loving it. I was determined to give it a reread after I heard the upcoming Ana de Armas movie is based on Blonde.
This time around and once again in a bit of a Marilyn phase I’m much more torn.
Clap When You Land
By: Elizabeth Acevedo
I love the idea of books in verse and they are fun fast reads but when I’m done with them (especially the Acevedo ones) I’m usually left with the feeling of wanting more. And Clap When You Land is no different.
It’s a Summer Reading TBR!
This post is in concert with Top 5 Tuesday hosted by Bionic Bookworm although I do go above 5… I couldn’t stop myself! So many good new books so many backlisted books I’m getting to this summer just so many books!
We got ourselves a shiny new Tenet trailer last night and as much as I go back and forth on the will I or won’t I go back to theaters I have no doubt in my mind I’m going to for this one.

Luggage, Luggage, where are you?
Okay I won’t whine about my favorite sentient baggage being absent because these days are the perfect days for Discworld and this is one of my favorites so far!
