Double Tap | Lani Lynn Vale
post image

So…I just accidentally figured out a feature that I assume is universal on Litsy and not just a product of my phone. When I double tap on a picture of someone‘s post, it “likes” the post for me. Did you guys know this? I guess I learn something new every day!

Gratuitous doggie picture just because. #dogsofLitsy #Bindi

Megabooks I‘ve been on Litsy nearly four years and I had no idea! Thanks! 3w
Nebklvr Huh. Thanks for the gratuitous doggy pic and the info 3w
Eyelit Oh the cuteness in this photo! 3w

After buying and renovating a huge, old house, a family then encounters some odd goings-on after moving in. Is it haunted? Is something else happening? Good creep factor with the house‘s history told through 4 previous families. There was an odd info dump near the end in the oldest story line that didn‘t quite work for me, but otherwise I enjoyed it.

Soubhiville Both girls in one picture ❤️. Do you have a treat or are you just talking to them? 4w
Hooked_on_books @Soubhiville Here I was just talking to them. I moved to get a picture and they both jumped up from where they were, so I positioned them and went with it. I‘m kind of amazed it worked! 😆 4w

How Could She: A Novel | Lauren Mechling

For some reason I was compelled to finish this book and should not have bothered, as it‘s a mess. Flat, inconsistent characters with unrealistic arcs and minimal pointless plot. Just don‘t bother.

At least I had a snuggly lap puppy while reading. #dogsofLitsy #Bindi

Cinfhen You need to learn the art of bailing!!!!!! 💕😘 1mo
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen I‘m definitely willing to bail on books but for some reason I didn‘t want to with this one. I think it may be because my library system got it for me from another library and I felt bad about returning it without finishing (as if they would know). I also hoped maybe it would redeem itself. Alas, it did not. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1mo
ljuliel I‘ve often thought it‘d be neat if the libraries had a month where they required short book reports on every book you check out that month. I‘d be in trouble for sure, since I‘m such a mood reader , I take books back often that I don‘t finish. 1mo

Cinfhen That‘s funny @ljuliel @Hooked_on_books That sounds like JEWISH GUILT 😂😂😂 1mo
Hooked_on_books @ljuliel Ha! That‘s hilarious. I can imagine how that would go over! 😆 And @Cinfhen you‘re close—I was raised Catholic. Also well known for their guilt. 1mo
Cinfhen Same difference 😉 1mo

Frank knows too much about who REALLY killed Kennedy and is on the run from his fellow mobsters in the aftermath. Charlotte is fed up with the typical housewife life of 1960s Oklahoma. In this well-crafted, well-plotted story, the two are destined to collide and no one seems to be safe. The tension building is pitch perfect. Highly recommend. #BOTMBuddyRead

AmyG Agreed. I finished this yesterday. Wonderful book. (edited) 2mo

When I Was a Child I Read Books | Marilynne Robinson
post image
Bailedbailed

I‘m calling it. Marilynne Robinson is deeply intellectual, and I‘m down with that. But she‘s also interested in musing about theology and philosophy and I‘m just not. (Plus I find this title very misleading.) When I realized I was only forcing my way through this book to have an #Iowa for #ReadingUSA2019, I decided that was a dumb reason. So now I am free!

#dogsofLitsy #Bindi

Amandajoy If you still need an Iowa book, try this one 3mo

Librariana Hooray to freedom and to releasing one's self from feeling forced to read something! 😊 3mo
ljuliel Bryson‘s Thunderbolt Kid takes place there if you have yet to read it. It‘s very good. 3mo
diovival Haha it looks like somehow this book let the pup down too 3mo
Hooked_on_books @Amandajoy @rachelm Thanks you guys! I was thinking of that one, but I found something on my shelves that works, so I‘m going to try that one first. 3mo
Hooked_on_books @ljuliel I like Bryson and in bailing on this book I discovered he was born and raised in Iowa, which I hadn‘t known. I‘ve got something on my shelves that fits, but If it lets me down, I may look for this one. 3mo

The majestic dog poses.

Shortly thereafter, she farted audibly and looked at her butt, thereby shattering the image. 😆

Whisper Network: A Novel | Chandler Baker

Pickpick

An unrepentantly feminist novel about male entitlement and privilege in a large corporation. This was such a real world look at how professional women are treated then beaten down when trying to change things. I just loved it and frankly felt validated by it. This could be a one-sitting read for sure.

When your dog is overly fascinated with the smell of your lip balm, it becomes rather difficult to read.

#Unpopular opinion time! But this is me, not the book. This book has some beautiful writing but is written in a style that is keeping me at arm‘s length. Each time I read a passage and feel I‘m about to get sucked in, it jumps to something completely different, pushing me away again. I can actually see why so many love it, but after reading half of it, I know I‘m just not compatible with this book.

Cinfhen Ha!! I spy a possible candidate ☺️💕 5mo

Anno Dracula | Kim Newman

Mehso-so

Jack the Ripper is terrorizing London, with the twist that Dracula defeated and killed Van Helsing and is now the Prince Consort of England. And vampires live side by side with the “warm.” Great premise and I enjoyed most of it, but I found it overly bloated with characters and unnecessary storylines.
