📚 Book review 📚
It's WWI, and young girls are helping the US war effort by painting dials with a luminous paint made from new wonder element radium. As this is fine work, they tip the brushes with their mouths. A few years later, the girls all fall mysteriously ill...
This Erin Brockovich-style story of the working poor being callously deceived and exploited to (literal) death by greedy captains of industry is a tale worthy to be told.
What a pity, then, that it is told in such a sensationalist, maudlin manner. Most chapters end with a Cliffhanger of Doom, the author uses every adverb in the thesaurus, and the liberty with which she imagines what 'the girls' might have been feeling makes this book veer dangerously towards fiction. The only reason I didn't chuck it out the window is that I had to finish it for the @oursharedshelf book club next month. Ugh. A wasted opportunity. I wish I could be kinder but I really had a very difficult time with this one.
The dapper gentleman in the picture is my grandfather, who died of the industrial poisoning of his era: lung cancer brought on by coal mining.

I have been in SUCH a thriller mood here lately, which is not natural for me. Natasha Preston’s books are the perfect combination of intrigue, suspense and fun that always manage to pull me out of a reading slump. You Will Be Mine is her latest YA Thriller and it did NOT disappoint! ❤️

Don't worry, no one was hurt in the making of these photos!

#Furyborn by @clairelegrand out this week! Pick up a copy of this beautiful book at your local book store or library! It's the first in a thrilling high-fantasy trilogy. A magic-wielding queen and a ruthless bounty hunter are separated by centuries but connected by prophecy. "A dark yet rousing adventure story that combines passion and danger at every turn." -Booklist #sourcebooks

We are so grateful when fellow stepmoms express words of support for our book. We hope this true @real_life_wonder_woman gets some time to herself to read soon. We all know how it feels to have a busy house of stepkids and biokids! xo

I was appalled and disgusted by what happened to #TheRadiumGirls in #KateMoore’s book published by @sourcebooks and had to share my 5⭐️ review!

This book was fascinating in the way that rubber neckers can’t stop looking at the aftermath of a tragic car accident. I was shocked and appalled by the sheer number of women, and their loved ones, who were affected by radium poisoning in New Jersey and Illinois. Just when I thought the story would be concluding, more and more and more atrocities and cover-ups were committed by these companies, causing even more pain and suffering to the women and their families. It was all just heartbreaking and unbelievable that this was allowed to happen in the United States.

The Radium Girls is a must read for everyone, so that this dark part of American history—and the pain, suffering, and sacrifice of the Radium Girls themselves—will never be forgotten! .

I really wanted to have all my thoughts put together to share a full review of FURYBORN by @clairelegrand on release day for you. Sadly that didn’t happen! So be on the lookout for that soon(ish), pending me getting some quality sleep so that I can string thoughts together.

SYNOPSIS
The stunningly original, must-read fantasy of 2018 follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world...or doom it.
.
When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed...unless the trials kill her first.
.
One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable―until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire's heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.
.
As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world―and of each other.

One of my favorite reads of 2018 was released today! I can’t recommend Furyborn enough, it was so good! @clairelegrand created a breathtaking story with two of my all time favorite main characters! I love Rielle and Eliana so much and I can’t wait to read more about them in the rest of the Empirium trilogy! Also, how amazing are these character cards? They were part of the preorder prize for Furyborn and they are beautiful!
