EUPHORIA by Lily King
Euphoria - Lily King

On Guinea Nell and her husband Fen are studying indigenous people. They are now on their third group of people, the Tam, who welcome them and allow them to become part of the tribe. They were introduced by Andrew Bankston, another anthropologist who is studying another group there. Fen's mind is on a flute he saw with an earlier group he and Nell were studying. He leaves Nell to do most of the study. When he achieves what he wants, he puts all 3 in danger and they must leave. But can they? Will Fen leave without any artifacts?


I liked the story. I liked Nell and Bankston. I hated Fen. Fen was a user. Neii was a better anthropologist and his ego couldn't take it. He was mean, nasty, and abusive. When Bankston meets Nell he is smitten as she was with him. He is caring and gentle with her. He makes sure she is taken care of which she doesn't receive from Fen. Fen is jealous of Bankston but never changes his behavior. I hated the ending but I don't think there could have been any other ending. This was not a happy story.


I thought the narrators were good. They did all the voices. I could tell the difference between Bankston and Fen. I could also tell the difference between Nell and the natives. Very well done.

Writers & Lovers
Writers & Lovers - Lily King

Despite my wariness to read fiction with a writer as the main character, (because I really cannot help think it is thinly-veiled autobiography—though I know this is wrong and judge-y), when I saw this book was written by Lily King, it was an easy selection. I loved everything about Euphoria, including the cover, which I still sometimes pull out of my bookcase and turn so that everyone can see it…(ok, maybe that’s just for me.)  Anyway, Writers & Lovers is a poignant story of grief, anxiety, love and other life lessons. I especially love that the character is “coming of age” in her 30s, and fighting the status quo her former classmates have succumbed to. And, while I do think that the ending may have been a little too tidy, sometimes, in the middle of my messy life, I enjoy the respite of a tidy, happily ever after book.

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares - Rachel Cohn,David Levithan
I had to read this since I saw the series on Netflix.
I'm so glad that I did too! Literary lovers will get a kick out of this rom com that takes place in the famous Strand book store in NYC. 
*Fun Fact* The Strand is on my bucket list!
I was so glad that LIly and Dash had this great adventure. It almost went sour, as adventures sometimes turn, but in the end we got what we wanted and then some.
Now I plan on binging the show with the hubby. I wanna see how the show stacks up to this brilliant read!
I definitely will read more from these two authors. They have a great writing style that blends well and leaves you wanting more!

Review ~ Awesome!
Lily - Michael Thomas Ford,Staven Andersen


Book source ~ Gifted


On the morning of her thirteenth birthday Lily touched her father and saw his death. Thinking it was a bad dream, she realizes it’s a curse when he dies that very day. Her mother whisks her away from the village she grew up in to the outside world that doesn’t have any magic. Joining a traveling tent revival the evangelical preacher uses Lily’s gift for his own gain. In the meantime, Baba Yaga has taken an interest in Lily. Which is surely not a good thing. How will Lily get back to the only place she loved, rescue the girl she’s falling in love with, and complete the quest Baba Yaga has given her?


This is a fascinating tale about Baba Yaga and a girl who can see death. Strange and compelling I couldn’t help but drop into the story and stay there to cheer Lily on to a satisfactory conclusion. It defies pigeon-holing and crosses several genre lines. It’s young adult, fantasy, horror, and LGBT. Plus, it’s illustrated! This is my first read of Michael Thomas Ford and I look forward to delving into more of his works.
