Fae Friday

Fae Friday – Recent Book Purchases/Hanukkah Readathon

Fae Friday is an awesome new weekly post created by Kristy at Caffeinated Fae. I’m super excited to participate in this (and to have been an avid supporter of it from the beginning)! A topic is provided each week, and Kristy is so welcoming to ideas from others. If you have any ideas for topics, reach out to her through her blog or on Twitter (@caffeinatedfae).

Here’s how it works:

  • Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
  • If the prompt idea comes from another blog, link to that blog as well.
  • Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
  • Participate when you can and have fun with the prompt!

As Black Friday & Cyber Monday draw closer, we are seeing some fantastic book sales! What are some of your recent purchases that you’re excited to read?

I don’t often buy a lot of books, but when I do, I typically buy books that I’ve already read and loved so much that I want to reread them often. However, I did buy Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber recently.

Mostly, I get books through the library, since I read quickly and don’t have a lot of money to spare. Last week, I discovered that there is going to be a Hanukkah readathon starting on the first night of Hanukkah (November 28th), and I’m absolutely THRILLED about it! If you’re interested in it, check out @lostinmylibrary on Instagram, or search #HanukkahReadathon. I immediately requested all the books I needed for the various prompts, and I’m super excited to dive into them. So I’m going to talk about the books that I’ll be reading for this readathon and the different prompts they’re for:

  1. Intersectional: Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
  2. 2021 Release: I Kissed a Girl by Jennet Alexander
  3. Jewish Joy: The Bloom Girls by Amy Pine
  4. Less Than 300 Pages: You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman
  5. Free Space: We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This by Rachel Lynn Solomon
  6. Non-Holocaust Historical Fiction: The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
  7. New To You Author: The Yiddish Policeman’s Union by Michael Chabon 
  8. Book With a Hanukkah Setting or Scene: It’s a Whole Spiel: Love, Latkes, and Other Jewish Stories edited by Katherine Locke and Laura Silverman
  9. Less Than 1000 Ratings on Goodreads: Jerusalem Beach by Iddo Gefen
