Tell Me Tuesday #76


Hosted byย La La in the Library

I got some more bad news this week, so basically all my plans to actually enjoy myself have gone out the window and now I’m just focusing on staying in a healthy mental space. I’m not sure how much reading I will get done this week, but a girl can hope!


  • Bloodline by Claudia Gray – Leia is and will always be one of my all-time favorite badass females. Claudia Gray is by far one of the best writers in the current Star War lineup. If you want to start out reading some SW but don’t know where to start, I recommend either this or Lost Stars (Young Adult). She understands the characters and really gives them room to breathe in a somewhat crowded galaxy.
  • Runaways: Find Your Way Home – I thought this was a reboot of the old series…it’s not, it’s a continuation. So as I haven’t read the original series I was lost and didn’t really get why any of the characters did what they did.


  • Night Shift by Stephen King – I have around 8 days to finish this bad boy off for the Stephen King book club, and I’ve barely started. But hopefully, I can get to it over the next few days.
  • Rad Girls Can by Kate Schatz – I read the previous book Rad Women Worldwide and adored it, so I’m sure excited to dig into a book that focuses on young women below the age of 20 who have managed to stand up and stand out in some way. This releases on July 17th


I normally don’t do this section because I never really know what is coming up next, but in this case, I actually do!

  • The Door to the Lost by Jaleigh Johnson – Super excited to get back into middle-grade fiction!
  • Black Magick Vol. 2: Awakening II – I really enjoyed the first one and the art is phenomenal
  • Han Solo – Not a Solo fan, however, Bloodline did a lot to make him into an actual person instead of the low life he tends to come off as in the movies. So I figured while I still see him somewhat positively I will get a bit more SW reading done.

    I saw your bad news on Twitter, I’m sorry to hear that. I worked for a company once that laid people off very suddenly and then escorted people from the building- I mean they’re so sensitive and caring about it *rolls eyes* Anyway I liked Bloodline and I agree with your assessment of Claudia Gray writing star Wars. I hope she does more! And Runaways I was expecting to like because I’m favorably disposed towards Rainbow Rowell, but I wasn’t super impressed. To be fair I only read the first issue.

    • Yeah…it’s been frustrating to say the least. Our notice was ‘effective immediately’…I just feel bad for the manager who found out a few hours before we did.
      I wasn’t impressed with most of Runaways actually, it wasn’t bad…just impossible to read without prior knowledge which is always earns a ‘meh’ from me when it comes “reboot” continuations. A little background would have been nice.

  2. Sorry about your work situation. ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž I worked at a restaurant that had been in bankruptcy proceedings for months and they didn’t tell us until the day the place closed. At least you found out before you bought a house. That would have been a worse nightmare. ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž

    I really liked Claudia Gray’s Defy the Stars, and I have been meaning to read a Star Wars titke, so I’ll check out Bloodline. The cover is wonderful. ๐Ÿ“š

    Thanks for TMTing, lovely. ๐Ÿ’œ

    • I am thankful they told us before that point, but it just sucks because stuff like this keeps happening to me. This will my second time being laid off at a pivotal moment in my life.

      Bloodlines is Leia at her best. Plus she gets plenty of moments to show off that she isn’t just a princess, but a women who knows her way around a blaster.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it, leave a comment and tell me what you think.
