We found this tag over on Feed the Crime, and it looked like such a fun time, we had to attempt it ourselves!
Last Book(s) I Bought:
Bree: My preorder of The Heartstopper Yearbook by Alice Oseman just shipped, so I guess that would be my most recent charge.
Tree: I literally just preordered Well Traveled by Jen DeLuca which releases December 6th.
Last Book I Borrowed:
Bree: I borrowed Ain’t Burned All the Bright by Jason Reynolds from my library. I’m very excited to read it after hearing all of Tree’s raving!
Tree: So I’m doing my Owned October Challenge and haven’t been reading library books recently, but I have been listening to audiobooks of the books that I own thanks to my library. I am currently listening to Not Here to Be Liked Be Liked by Michelle Quach.
Last Book(s) I Was Gifted:
Bree: My boyfriend just gifted me a preorder of The Stolen Heir by Holly Black, so I can attend her upcoming book tour and meet one of my favorite authors ever! *sobbing*
Tree: A friend sent me her copy of Headliners by Lucy Parker so now I have the full set!
Last Book I Gave Someone Else:
Bree: I lent my copy of A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson to one of my coworkers, so we’ll see if I ever get that back…
Tree: I went to a recent book event and needed to purchase a copy of the book and I didn’t really want it, so I gave it to a friend. Julia Whelan was lovely and I did like Thank You for Listening, I just didn’t need a copy, you know!
Last Book I Started:
Bree: I just started my reread of Mistakes Were Made by Meryl Wilsner! Cassie & Erin forever!
Tree: I started Born a Crime by Trevor Noah a few days ago! I usually listen to memoirs on audio, so it’s a slow go currently, but I am enjoying it.
Last Book I Finished:
Bree: She-Hulk: Planet Without a Hulk by Dan Slott. This was ‘volume 5’ so I am slowly working my way through all these issues.
Tree: I finished Sophie Go’s Lonely Hearts Club. It was okay, not a fave, but it was a book club pick.
Last Book I Rated 5 Stars:
Bree: Blue Period, Vol 12 by Tsubasa Yamaguchi!! I just binged 12 volumes of this manga in 2 weeks and am absolutely devastated to have caught up to currently-releasing updates.
Tree: I really loved Love Times Infinity, a debut novel.
Last Book I Rated 2 Stars:
Bree: I might be too generous of a rater, or I just don’t pick up books I don’t like, because the last time I gave something 2 stars, it was in 2019. So, instead my last 3 star read was The It Girl by Ruth Ware. I normally love her books, but this one just wasn’t for me.
Tree: I usually DNF before I get to a two star rating so I’m following Bree’s lead to do a three star rating. Which was Sophie Go from above and the three star from before that was Fake it Till You Bake It which I reviewed last week.
Last Book I DNF’d:
Bree: The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix just wasn’t for me. I did not enjoy the vibes at all; had to DNF it.
Tree: I’ve been DNFing so much recently and I honestly don’t even remember them all so the last one I DNF’d officially (aka I put it on Goodreads) was Ramón and Julieta and it bummed me out because I wanted to like it and I enjoyed the first bit. Plus the cover is gorgeous!!
Last Book I Listened To:
Bree: I just finished the audiobook of The Fae Keeper by H.E. Edgmon
Tree: Aside from the one I mentioned above, I listened to Fiona and Jane. I really enjoyed it.
Thanks for reading!
xoxo, Bree & Tree
