Why to Read Murder Mysteries

Hello humans!! It’s October and we are very excited for spooky season! Fall is our favorite time of year,  and perfect  for reading a murder mystry. I have read a few murder mystries recently, and I hope to read some more this month. I know that  not everyone is obsessed with murder mysteries so I am here to tell you why they are so amazing.

There are so many reasons but I think a big one is that they are very entertaining. I know this might seem obvious and you might be saying aren’t all good books entertaining; yes but I think that murder mystries can be entertaining in a very different kind of way. There can be so much suspense and you just want to understand more about the mystery. Also if you want, you can try to solve the mystery while reading which makes the book more interactive. 

Also I love reading the characters in murder mysteries because they are often not great people. What I mean by this is that they are often hiding things or can even be a murder suspect. I always find these sorts of characters really fun and interesting to read, because they tend to be more complex. I do sometimes feel really bad for characters in murder mystries because I feel like they just have to deal with a lot. 

I also feel like if you are having a hard time getting into books right now,  they are the perfect type to read. There is so much suspense and you just want to know what is going to happen next! I feel like when reading them I am always reading the book or thinking about reading the book, and they are tough to put down. 

This is kind of random but I love telling people about murder mystries! I am kind of  bad at explaining the plot of a book in a way that is succinct and understandable,  so usually it takes forever and the person I am talking to just gets really confused but I find it super fun. My co-blogger, Amethyst, can confirm!) 

Lastly I wanted to suggest some books in case you read this and  thought, “I need to read a murder mystries right this instant but I have no idea where to start.” First I would recommend One of Us is Lying because I feel like it is a great first murder mystry to read. It is about all these kids who were in detention together when one of them died and they want to know  who killed him. It is such a fun read and I love all of the characters so much. Second I would recommend the Truly Devious series which I feel like is pretty wild and so crazy. Lastly I would recommend I Killed Zoe Spanos which I just finished  recently and really enjoyed; it is about, as the title says, who killed Zoe Spanos. I loved the setting and it was a very intense read. I hope that you find a murder mystry you enjoy!

Do you read murder mysteries? What is your favorite? Do you want to read a murder mystery?

My Thoughts on Reading a Fantasy Book

Sorry that we haven’t posted in ages we have both just gone back to school and it’s crazy (but we are hoping to start posting more regularly again!).

I just read a fantasy book! I mean, I have read a few fantasy books in my life but it’s not what I usually read (I have probably only read two fantasy books this year), so I thought it would be interesting to share my thoughts.  

I recently read Girl, Serpent, Thorn and I gotta  say, I enjoyed it. It’s not like it was the best book I’ve ever read, but it was pretty good. The book is about a girl named Soraya who is poisonous, she lives hidden away from the world and rarely sees her family. Her family comes back to the castle to live in and her brother is about to get married. She thinks that she might be able to find someone who can help her become free from her curse and chaos ensues (I don’t want to say much more just because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone). 

This book was such an adventure! So many crazy things happened and that kept me very engaged in the story while reading it. It was also something that seemed very different from most books that I read. In contemporary books, the story is less of a mission and more just about a character’s life. I also enjoy reading murder mysterys and I feel like it was more similar to that because there were so many surprising twists. I did enjoy that it was an adventure and it also made me feel more like a movie. I am not sure why exactly; I guess in movies characters go on missions more often? 

Additionally, the characters were so interesting, something you guys know I look for in a book. There were some characters that you would definitely consider to be evil. In most of the books I read there aren’t usually purely evil characters. Usually when I am reading, I want to like the characters but I enjoyed reading these characters even though some of them were not that likable.  I liked the main character, but I didn’t love her and I didn’t really like many other characters so I feel like that decreased my enjoyment of the book a bit. I did really enjoy reading the evil characters and I would enjoy reading another book with some evil characters because from this book I realized they could be super fun to read. 

This book is based on Persian mythology. Usually in fantasy it is all made up stuff, so I get really confused and at points during this I did get confused. At the back of the book there was a section talking about all of the different aspects that came from mythology and I found it really interesting. I think this book also had the right amount of fantasy elements that I could enjoy it, but also not get confused about what all the things were. 

Have you read any fantasy books? What is your favorite genre? Any suggestions of other fantasy books to read? 

Why I Sometimes Don’t Like a Book

Hello lovely humans! Today I am going to talk about some reasons why I might not like a book. I wanted to do this post because mostly when we post on the blog, we talk about books we really enjoyed.  I suppose this does make sense because it is fun to talk about how amazing a book is in the hopes that someone sees and decides to read the book. But of course we don’t like every book we read and sometimes we like a book but also have some issues with it. So that is why we are writing this post! 

For me at least, one of the most important parts of any book is the characters. If I find all of the characters really annoying, I am most likely not going to like the book as a whole. I am not saying that the characters need to be nice; if a dislikable character is written well it can still be a good book. I personally need to be able to like at least some of the characters or I won’t enjoy the book because if I don’t like the character I won’t care about what happens to them in the plot. 

Another really important thing is the writing style, which in some ways  is more important than characters. Writing is super important because it brings you into the world the author is creating and it helps you to understand the characters. If a book doesn’t have great writing I feel like I am distanced from the characters, if that makes sense.Also, some books just have such beautiful writing that I want to read them just for the writing even if the plot isn’t particularly good. 

I also feel like pacing is so important in books! If a book is really slow, and in the last two chapters everything is happening, it just is no fun to read. I do enjoy books that generally have  a slower pace, but I  want the pace to be consistent throughout. If a book speeds up all of a sudden it feels like the author is just trying to get everything they want to say into the book before it ends. 

There are many other minor things that can influence whether or not I like a book. I am a mood reader, so sometimes I just don’t feel like reading a particular book, but later I really enjoy it. Also, the genre can really influence if I like a book. For example I don’t read much fantasy so I am more likely to not like a fantasy book just because it’s a genre I don’t know as well.  Sometimes, even a few of these reasons together make me dislike a book. I feel like it’s important to be able to understand why you don’t like a book you are reading, because it gives you a better sense of what you enjoy as a reader, and helps you avoid similar books in the future.

What are some reasons you dislike books you are reading? What are some books you have been reading? Why have you liked or disliked them?

Judging book covers

In this post I am going to judge book covers! I am not going to judge how the covers look but if the color of the cover relates to the contents of the book, so I will be referencing a color psychology chart for this. We thought this would be an interesting way to look at different covers, and this doesn’t mean the cover is bad. I tried to choose books that had solid colors on the cover or two colors at most. Also the color of a cover probably doesn’t always need to relate to the themes of a book. I hope you enjoy! For reference, here is one color psychology chart that we used while making this post, but we did look at a few others. Just a note there are also more words that can go with all of these colors but I just chose a few for each. 

Wilder Girls by Rory Power

The cover of this book is mostly green and from reading about green,  it’s a color that is known for being calming and healing, as well as related to nature. I think that this color really works for this cover because this book takes place on an island in Maine so nature was definitely an important theme in this book. The idea that it’s calming doesn’t really go with this book, because I feel like because it’s a thriller so it is definitely not calming. 

 Don’t Read the Comments by Eric Smith 

The main color of this cover is blue which relates to the feelings of trust and being at peace. In my opinion, this color doesn’t really go with the themes of the book because it covers a lot of intense issues of sexism in video games. However, in some ways trust could be related to the book because the two main characters grow much closer over the course of the story. I feel like overall the color doesn’t really go with the book but it does go very well with the cover and I think the cover looks really good. 

The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson

 I think this book works really well for this type of analysis because the cover is all red. Red is a bold, powerful color and is related to excitement. This color goes really well with this book for many reasons but mostly because it’s a mystery thriller and the last book of the series and a lot was happening. It is also very exciting, because when reading it I just wanted to continue and know what was going to happen next. I also feel like bold suits this book very well because a lot of crazy things happened in it.

You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson 

This book’s cover is mainly purple and some words that are associated with this color are royalty and ambition. If there is one book that fits best with the color I feel like it would have to be this one! This book is all about how Liz enters the race for prom queen to earn scholarship money so I feel like it fits with royalty pretty well. I also feel like Liz is really ambitious and hardworking so that also fits. Overall the color works really well with the themes of the book!

I really found this blog post fun to write and I hoped you liked reading it! It obviously doesn’t always make sense to match the themes of a book with the color of a cover. For example,  authors may have their own aesthetic ideas or want to match with other books in a series. However,  I think it was interesting to determine if these covers fit with the books. I feel like most people don’t know a lot about color psychology so I hope you found it interesting to learn about that. 

What do you think? Have you read any of these books? Do you want to read these books? Does the cover color of your favorite book match it’s theme? 

Clap When You Land-Review

Recently on the blog we posted a list by authors of color that I wanted to read. So far I have read two of the books. Today, I am going to talk about one of those books: Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo. I was super excited to read this, because for one this book has a really amazing cover. I have also recently read one of her other books, With the Fire on High, and I had really enjoyed it, so I was hoping that I would enjoy this one. 

This is a story about two sisters, Camino who lives in the Domincan Republic and Yahaira who lives in New York City. Their father dies in a plane crash and they are both dealing with his death. Throughout the story they learn of the secrets their father had and of the existence of each other. 

This is a novel in verse which isn’t always my favorite type of book. I am not sure why, but I feel like it can sometimes be hard to understand a book enough if it’s in verse. I actually loved that this book was in verse! I think that the fact that it was in verse actually really helped to demonstrate the emotions that the characters were feeling. It also just made the writing so beautiful. I can’t think of many other books I would recommend because they have beautiful writing but this is definitely one. 

I really loved the characters in the book. Camino and Yahaira live in very different places and have very different experiences. Throughout the course of the book they meet each other and bond and it’s really amazing. I think that how their relationship changes as the story progresses was one of my favorite parts of the book. I also found it interesting to learn about Camino’s experience living in the Dominican Republic; it’s such a different place from the world I live in. I feel like most of the books I read take place in similar settings to the world I live in, the northeast United States, and I enjoyed reading about a different place. One of the joys of reading is getting to travel across space and time from the comfort of your bedroom, and stories like this help me take advantage of that. 

Overall I would definitely recommend this book! I found it a really amazing story that dealt with grief in a really good way. Even if you don’t like books in verse this is an amazing book so go read it!

AUDIOBOOKS

Today I want to talk about…audiobooks! When I was younger, I would often listen to audiobooks when I went on long car trips. Recently I have started to listen to some again. At first it was just because it was the best way to get the book I wanted. I have listened to a few other audiobooks and I am really enjoying it! I have been getting a lot of audiobooks from hoopla which is an app from my library where you don’t need to place holds and it’s great.

One of my favorite parts about audiobooks is all the things that you can do while you are listening. I really enjoy cleaning and listening to a book. Recently I reorganized my bookshelf, and cleaned out my closet and the whole time I got to listen to a book which was so fun. This has also made me feel very productive because these are things that I have been meaning to do. I would love to sit around all day and read but I usually can’t so if I need to do something that doesn’t take too much focus I can listen at the same time. I also really enjoy listening while I am doing art and calligraphy which has been super fun. 

In the past I have not really enjoyed listening to audiobooks because I am very picky about the reader. If I don’t like the voice of the reader I can’t listen to a book. It can just be so annoying. So if I start an audiobook and I don’t like the reader I just won’t listen to it. If I can, I try to listen to a sample of the book before starting it to determine if I want to listen to it. If I do like the book I really enjoy listening so it just really depends. 

Audiobooks can be so long! This is one thing that bothers me; I can read faster than I can listen so sometimes I feel like books are moving really slowly when I am listening. Also when I am reading I like to see how names and such are written but when listening I can’t do this which makes me sad.  

So far I have only listened to two audiobooks so I will see how my opinion changes but this is how I am feeling so far. I have listened to The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes and Crier’s War and really enjoyed both of them. I am also currently listening to Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secret of the Universe and it is read by Lin Manual Miranda which is really cool. 

Do you enjoy audiobooks? Tell us your opinions!

Pride Month Reading List

As many of you know, it is pride month!!! This means I really want to talk about queer books in this post. I have created a list of books that I have read and enjoyed and a list of books I wanted to read for pride. I also enjoy reading romance so most of the books on this list are romances. I hope you find some books that you want to read!

Queer Books I Enjoyed:

Tell Me How you Really Feel by Aminah Mae Safi

This book was about two girls who go from enemies to lovers. They end up working on a project together that changes their relationship. It is not very serious and it’s just such a fun read with an adorable cover. So if you are looking for a cute f/f book this would be a wonderful book to read. I read this book in winter which in my opinion would be a good time to read this, because it’s a very cute romance

Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins

 I really enjoyed reading this book and it was such a fast read. This book is about Milly, a girl who decides to go to a boarding school in Scotland. At this school she meets a princess and they go from not liking each other to liking each other. I mean it’s a gay book and there is a princess so what more do you need to know?

These Witches Don’t Burn Isabel Sterling

This book is about a girl who is a witch and also gay. It has romance and adventure and you just want to know what is going to happen next. It was just a fun book to read, the adventure was exciting and the romance was cute. They had to fight a witch hunter and it was very exciting. I have not really read any witch books but I thought it was very enjoyable. 

The Summer of Jordi Perez by Amy Spalding

 I enjoyed this book overall but it was not my favorite book, partly because I wasn’t personally all that invested in the relationship. However, I think her friends were really nice and it is a really cute and enjoyable book. She works with Jordi at a clothing store and also goes on adventure with a friend to find a great burger. It also takes place in the summer and I feel like it’s a great summer read. 

We Used to be Friends by Amy Spalding 

This book is about the falling apart of a friendship and I found the way it was written so interesting, because it goes back and forth between different times so you get to see the views of both girls. There is also a cute f/f relationship. You see how the girls friendship fell apart and you get to understand how they are feeling. 

The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar 

I loved this book so much Many people say this, but the sister relationship in this book is amazing (I want a sister like that!). Also the way that coming out is addressed in this book is really great. She comes out to her parents and must deal with their initially negative as well as being outed at her school. 

Late to the Party by Kelly Quindlen

We already reviewed this book,  which you can check out here. This book was great and I loved the friendship between Codi and Ricky. I also feel like this is the perfect book to read this summer.

Only Mostly Devastated by Sophie Gonzales

 This book is about a boy named Ollie who has a summer romance and ended up living in the same town as another boy, Will. I really loved both Will and Ollie; they were really amazing and kind characters. It is also a really serious book, Ollie’s aunt has cancer and Ollie and his parents need to help her, her husband and her young kids. It was a really enjoyable read and I would highly recommend it. 

What if it’s Us by Becky Albertelli and Adam Silvera

This book is about 2 boys, Ben and Arthur, who meet each other over the summer in New York and have to search in order to find each other. One of them is new to both the city and relationships, while the other is far more experienced in both departments. Their love story is absolutely adorable, and this book does a good job of giving them both complex backstories. Both of these authors write many books on their own as well: my favorite by Becky Albertalli is The Upside of Unrequited and my favorite by Adam Silvera is They Both Die at the End. Also the title is a Dear Evan Hansen reference and as a theater nerd I love that. 

Queer Books that I want to read: 

These are only a few of the many books in this genre that I would love to read. 

The Falling in Love Montage by Ciara Smyth

First of all, the cover of this book is super cute, which as you have probably guessed is something I pay more attention to than I should. This is an adorable romance between two girls, Saoirse and Ruby. Saoirse doesn’t believe in love at first sight and Ruby takes her on many rom-com based dates. Also, we have a friend named Saoirse, so that was cool.

I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver

 The main character comes out as non-binary,has to move in with their sister and is also dealing with anxiety. It sounds like a really good book and I want to read a book with a non-binary person as the main character. 

You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman

This book is about the stress of applying to college, something I am currently experiencing. I am almost at the age to apply to college and it’s something I haven’t really read about in books before. I think there is also a m/m relationship? It sounds like an interesting book.

Have you read any of these books? Do you want to read any of these books? Tell us what you are reading for pride.

Black Authors Reading List

HERE ARE SOME RESOURCES WE COMPILED IF YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED

(please check this out, we worked super hard on it)

At this time I am writing this I see weekly protests and many other actions in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Our national discussion about race has made me think about the diversity of the books I read. This has made me realize that I don’t read very diversely and I am not sure why this is but it does make me want to try and read books by diverse authors and about diverse experiences. This is partially my fault I don’t often look to make sure that I am reading diversely, and I am interested in how the book industry influences the authors I read, but things definitely need to change in the near future.

  Today I wanted to share a list of some books by black authors that I think would be interesting as well as give me insight. Also, some of these books have LGBTQIA+ representation, which is especially relevant  as it is Pride Month. Some of these books are pretty well known, but I still want to talk about them. 

I’m starting off this list with Clap When you Land by Elizabeth Acevedo. I am so excited to read this book!!! I would also recommend With the Fire on High, which is another book by Elizabeth Acevedo that I love. Clap When you Land is a book in verse about two sisters who live in two different places and must deal with their father’s death. I have only read a few books in verse and I have liked some more than others, so I guess I will have to wait and see what I think about this one. 

The next book is You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson. This book is about a black queer girl who runs for prom queen because she needs to earn the scholarship that comes with it. I am pretty sure that she also has a crush on another girl who is running for prom queen. This book is by a black author and has queer rep which is so exciting!!

Here is another book that  has queer rep. This book is Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender. This book is about Felix: a black, transgender, queer kid. He deals with some transphobia and harassment, and there also might be some romances,so overall it sounds like a very good book and I really want to read it. 

The next book I want to talk about is called A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow. This book is about a black girl who is a siren. I am not exactly sure what the rest of the story is but I believe  it also deals with racism. It  seems like a super interesting book and I really want to read a book about a siren. 

Another book I want to add to this list is The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta. I think this is a story about a kid who is dealing with sexuality which sounds really interesting.As you can see from this post I have made choices of what to read based on their cover. This is also a novel in verse, if you enjoy those.

One book that Amethyst recommends is This is Kind of an Epic Love Story by Kheryn Callender. This is a beautiful story about high school relationships, love of movies, and family dynamics. The main character, Nathan, is still getting over his best friend that he used to date, when his childhood crush, Oliver, who is deaf, moves back home. The relationships all become complicated super quickly, and it is a story you cannot put down. 

The last book (but certainly not least) I want to add to this list is Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann. This book is about a black queer girl and I think there is some romance. Also there is asexual representation I think which is really cool. I don’t know much about this book but it looks fascinating  

This is not a huge list but these are just some books I am hoping to read. I think it is so important to think about the diversity of books we read (which is something I don’t often do) and I think it’s important to try to read diversely. These books all look really good and I hope  to talk about them in the future.

Have you read any of these books? Do you want to read any of these books? Tell us what you are reading. 

Late To The Party

Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Featured Quote: “While my friends and I were lamenting our lack of romantic experience in the basement my little brother had conned us into driving him to a date.”

Hello Humans! During this crazy time I think that reading books about average life is so important. As we near summer, I am not sure what it will look like, but this book was really nice to read because it was about the events of such a normal summer. Reading books about a normal world helps me remember that things will be okay and they are just so nice to read. Recently I  read Late to the Party by Kelly Quindlen.

This book is about Codi Teller, a 17 year old girl who hasn’t had many “average” teenage experiences, she doesn’t go to parties and she has never dated anyone. Codi also has a very small world, with very few people or things, but at least  she has two best friends Maritza and Jakory. One day her friends want to go to a party but she doesn’t want to go with them.  Later she does end up going to get them from the party. At this party she meets Ricky. She becomes good friends with Ricky and meets his friends and has many new experiences. The book addresses friendship, sexuality, and is such a nice story about summer. 

lThroughout the book they all explore what being a teenager means. Codi makes new friends and goes to parties and they each get a little romance. A lot of the book is about Codi figuring out what it means to be a teenager.  I haven’t seen this topic explored in many books and I really appreciated how the author took it on . Recently I have read so many books about teens who I have not related to very much, buthe characters in this book were so relatable and seemed so much more like people I might actually know. This  book is also about Codi getting out of her comfort zone and meeting new people, which really made me want to continue reading, because Codi felt so real and true to life that I really cared about the character and wanted to go on the journey with her.  

This book also has amazing queer representation! At first Codi feels as if she can’t be a normal teenager because she is gay. She runs into Ricky at a party making out with a boy and they become good friends. Their friendship was a really important  part of this book; they both really help each other. Throughout the book Codi is not always nice two her two closest friends but they are able to make up in the end and all help each other. All of these characters really made this such a fun read and I really cared about all of them. Throughout this book all of the characters change and develop and become amazing fantastic people. 

I really loved reading this book. It was such a fun summer story about people that I really ended up caring about. During this time when we can’t have these experiences being able to read about such a normal world makes me feel so happy. This was a really great book to read and I feel as if these characters could have been my friends.
