dani: library support staff/paralibrarian for a public library system in washington state. i read books and peddle a medley of information to those who seek it.
1. What I Tell You In the Dark: Found this on the new book display at work and it had me at a description about a disgraced angel. I haven't read much of it, though, because I've been distracted by other things.
2. In the Shadow of Edgar Allan Poe (audiobook edition via Hoopla Digital): I've seen this book at work many times and have actually taken it home, but never actually read it. I'm currently still in the introduction, but very much looking forward to listening to the stories in this anthology.
I've decided to drop my challenge of reading 50 YA horror books this year. No updates to my Read Harder Challenge participation just yet.

I listened to the audiobook version of this via Hoopla Digital. It was fun, just as the other books in the series have been.
I can't fully tell how I feel about this book. It was good, but not great. It was a quick read, but I also wanted to take my time with it. I found myself connecting with both characters, but not really wanting to. I can't say to whom I would recommend this book, but it's not a bad read. I just wanted something more.
Finished my re-read of Ellen Raskin's The Westing Game! I really enjoyed getting to reread one of my favourite mysteries from when I was first being introduced to books as a young kid. I wasn't sure some of the magic would still be there, but it was.
I also appreciated getting to use this book as a way to practice checking out e-books from my library and getting used to the Kindle app for Android.
My goal is to update you every Thursday on what I'm reading and listening to!
1. The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin (Kindle Edition via Overdrive Media Console) -- I don't know what made me think of this book recently, but I'm enjoying it even more than I enjoyed it when I was a kid! It's also been interesting to read things in Kindle format. The past couple of novels I've finished have been e-books and I'm starting to get used to the format.
2. Zom-B by Darren Shan (Digital Audiobook Edition via Overdrive Media Console) -- I tried listening to this last summer and it wasn't the gore that made me gag and cringe. It was the racism and white supremacy from certain characters. I'm currently on chapter 24 and I don't know if I'm going to finish this book.

This book is the perfect meditation book for the person in your life who doesn't really believe in meditation but knows they need to do something to calm themselves down and slow their roll. I highly recommend it because I was laughing the entire time and felt amazingly positive by the end of the work.
I received a copy of this work from Blogging For Books in exchange for my review.
