Wrapping Up June 2021

According to Goodreads, I am two books behind schedule for the amount of books I said I want to read this year. The end of June means we're halfway through the year, and ought to be at least halfway to any year-long reading goals set in January. Are you close to your goals, reading or otherwise?

Duology Review: Meg & Jo and Beth & Amy by Virginia Kantra

We're starting this week off with a double feature: a combined review of two books, Meg & Jo and Beth & Amy which make up the March Sisters duology by Virginia Kantra.

What Classic Ending Would You Change? // Classic Remarks Linkup

Happy Friday! I'm trying something new today and participating in the Classic Remarks linkup. The host shares a prompt relating to classic books in advance, and then you write a post or comment with your response. I have mixed feelings about classic books, but it's fun to talk about them and to hear a variety of opinions! Today's prompt is an interesting question. It really got me thinking about books I have read and disliked, and what I would change if given the chance. I've kept my post relatively brief (I don't want to bore you with all the details of my opinions today!), and I invite you to consider the following prompt and share your own answer as well:

6 Degrees of Separation: From Bass Rock to Garden Spells

Today's post participates in #6DegreesofSeparation hosted by Kate at booksaremyfavouriteandbest. The gist is that everyone starts with the same book, then finds another book that relates to it somehow, then one that relates to the second, until you’ve got a chain of six additional books. It’s a twist on the theory that every person on earth can somehow be connected to any other person in six or fewer steps, and provides an opportunity to talk about random books we love (or don’t).

Tackling the TBR #24: A Batch of Sweet Summery Stories?

My TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. Therefore, I have decided to do a post featuring ten books from it approximately every other week. As I go through the list, I will evaluate each book and decide whether or not it still belongs. Who knows, perhaps as my list (hopefully) shrinks, you will find a few books to add to your own!

First Line Friday Featuring: Meg & Jo by Virginia Kantra

I have an exciting book to share with you today! If you saw my June TBR & Goals post or if you've followed Reviews From the Stacks for a few years, you may know that June is time for the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge hosted by Tarissa of In the Bookcase and that I love this month-long reading challenge! There are so many good books by, about, or otherwise related to Louisa May Alcott. This challenge is the perfect push to read them for myself and a way to read about similar books that others are reading and enjoying (or not enjoying).

WWW Wednesday June 16, 2021

Hello and welcome back, Reader! Today's post is linking up with Sam at Taking on a World of Words for WWW Wednesday to talk about the books that are at the front of my mind this week. Even though summer classes are in full swing, the fact that I am only taking two this time (compared... Continue Reading →

Tackling the TBR #23

Hello again, Reader! If historical fiction is your thing, there are several books in today's post which might be to your liking. I'm going over another 10 titles from my TBR list today to see if I still want to read them or if I should take them off of my list to make room for others.

Mini Book Review: Mirror’s Edge by Scott Westerfeld (Impostors #3)

Happy Friday! I managed to read this book shortly after my spring classes, and boy does it pack a punch. If you're a fan of action, this book has plenty of it. Westerfeld's books are vastly different from what I usually enjoy, but somehow they always manage to sink in so that my mind is always thinking ahead, generating theories, and speculating while I'm reading. I'm usually not right when I try to anticipate, but it's a fun process nonetheless!
