So with the holiday weekend coming up I was thinking about how hard it might be to get a chance to read and, for me at least, how I actually need to find opportunities to read when I’m stressed so I came up with a couple of recommendations for getting through a crazy busy stretch of days.
I saw the Wonder Woman Book tag first on Delphine the Babbler and really enjoyed it. The original creator of the tag is on youtube: Amber’s Books and More.
Since Justice League is out this week it seemed as good a time as any to do this one!
I enjoyed Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl when I read it including the fan fiction parts with Simon Snow. But for some reason I threw up a block with the idea of reading the actual book. Like I do not want to read a rather large fan fiction about Harry Potter. Superficially though I loved this paperback cover and I really needed a pick me up.
Wound up a total Carry On convert.
Stranger Things Season 2
Well, season 2 is done. I tried to stretch it out as long as I could as though somehow season 3 would be ready (I just can’t really binge anything). Overall I enjoyed another visit with my favorite kids, their Sheriff and the idyllic small-town hooked up to a seemingly massive inter dimensional portal.

Invictus was one of the big reads I was waiting for this year and in the end I felt like it was just okay. I’m a sucker for time-travel and this book about time-traveling bandits lead by a kid who was literally born outside of time was described as Firefly meets Doctor Who so I really, really expected a lot.
I haven’t done one of The Broke and Bookish Top Ten Tuesdays in ages but I saw this prompt and thought it looked like fun. The prompt technically is Top 10 Characters Who Would Make Great Leaders but that can be interpreted and when I saw trendsetters my mind just went to 10 characters who would totally rule Instagram/social media.
A weird amount of mine would use it to keep tab on their enemies but anyway! Characters appear in no particular order below…

Thor Ragnarok was one of my most anticipated films of the year. It was kind of a strange one for me though. I liked the movie but I didn’t really appreciate how good it was until that ending. I’ve seen a couple of people say this movie did for Thor what Winter Soldier did for Captain America and that’s really true.
Spoilers below. Though I try to keep it vague…

The Raven Boys
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
After putting it off for way too long I finally read the entire Raven Cycle series! I started it right after Labor Day and finished it last week! Maybe it’s just a case of the whole series being done and there for me but I really loved it. I had put this off in large part because I could barely finish Shiver a couple years back so I was nervous I wouldn’t enjoy this.
I try to keep it spoiler free below!
This months theme was Find Me In The Forest! Once again I was completely wrong about the book (I have to stop guessing) but hey it was a good box anyway. Not very Halloweeny but still.
