Monday’s are usually less than magical for me but I decided to start this post to add a bit of magic to my Monday and your Monday as well! There are so many books out there that have added so much comfort in my life and I think comfort is what we all need on difficult Mondays!
1…Girl Goddess #9
I have read this book multiple times as a teenager and I have made a promise to myself this year that I would begin rereading books again instead of giving in to all the hype of recently released books. Goddess #9 is the perfect book to add some serious magic to my Monday! Lately, I have been experiencing a bit of the winter blues and Francesca Lia Block is the kind of author that brings me comfort through difficult times. These stories are stories of empowerment for girls and they are stories that teach girls that we can all find the magic within ourselves.
I am picking this book to read in honor of Black History Month and for the March book event that I will be attending March 2nd which is called BAM! – A Festival of Books * Art * Music! The author Nic Stone will be attending this event! I met Stone in the Miami Book Fair and never got around to reading her books! I have just checked out this book to listen to on audio through my library and I have heard so many stellar reviews on this book! Not to mention, it doesn’t hurt that this book is only about four and a half hours long on audio!
3…Stranger the Dreamer
Laini Taylor will also be in the BAM book festival and I am seriously scared about reading this book because I read a short story from the short story holiday anthology My True Love Gave to Me and I wasn’t thrilled with it! Actually, the story bored me to tears and I was completely confused with it. The worst thing about it is that it was a short story and I wanted the story to be over that quickly. I am going to give this book a chance since she will be in the book festival and if this book doesn’t work out I will look into reading her previous trilogy series Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I have heard that her books are high fantasy and I am not much of a fantasy reader so I am going to cross my fingers that this will be a good reading experience for me!
