The Hazel Wood | Melissa Albert
post image

Started reading an ebook from the library of the Hazel Wood during my break at work to keep going with the #summersendreadathon! I got through 65 pages of it already, which isn‘t half bad!

Clwojick A perfect example of #CoversThatPullYouIn 😍 I still really want to read this book! I just love the cover art! 5mo
wideeyedreader @Clwojick The art is so gorgeous!! And the book itself is pretty good too 5mo

Okay, I‘ve seen this Wheat Belly book everywhere! Have any of you guys read it?

The other three books were perfect examples of #CoversThatPullYouIn - but I chose to come out empty handed... but I will be passing two more thrift stores, and two bookstores on today‘s adventures. I can‘t have this backpack getting too heavy, because I would like to walk home. Any that I should go back for later in the week? #snowbootchallenge #bookfitnesschallenge

Victoriahoperose Homegoing is amazing. Definitely go back for that one! 8mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I second Homegoing...fantastic! 8mo
bedandabook I third it! Homegoing is worth returning for. 8mo
wanderinglynn No, but I‘ve contemplated picking up the Wheat Belly cookbook because I know wheat & added sugars are my 2 biggest problems. I feel so much better, lose weight, & have way more energy when I cut out grains and added sugar. 8mo

Next up for #BookFitnessChallenge Audiobooks. 💕

I‘ve seen this book at Chapters, and I absolutely adore the cover. Never heard of the author, but I‘m sure it‘ll be enjoyable. Definitely another case of #CoversThatPullYouIn


CoverToCoverGirl Great title too! 8mo

Where do you find your new authors? Do you just happen to pick up books because of their covers or spines like me? Do you simply read the authors and genres you already know you prefer?

I definitely choose books based on their covers, and rarely read the backs of the books until I get home. I also find a ton of new authors thanks to #NetGalley. And of course from stacking all your recommendations here on Litsy.

#DiscussionThursday #MayMadness

LibrarianRyan I read a lot of newsletters about books. and because I put in to win so many free books, I follow a lot of up and coming authors on Twitter who are always tagging new things and new books. Plus, I like to look at lists of books coming out months from now for various library purposes. 9mo
Clwojick @LibrarianRyan I love checking out the up and coming book fliers that my library has, but I wish they sent out monthly emails. I don‘t make it to my library as often anymorw 9mo
JSW I look for authors I‘ve loved, and then I see which authors blurb their covers. I read the New York Times Book Review, I look at Litsy, I follow publishers and bookstores on Instagram. I never seem to have a shortage of TBR!! 🤪 9mo

Clwojick @JSW oooh yes! I definitely look at blurbs from favourite authors as well ! ♥️😍♥️ 9mo
Kimberlone Definitely a combination of social media (Litsy, Bookriot on Fb), browsing new releases on Libby/Hoopla, and BOTM 9mo
Clwojick @Kimberlone ugh 😍 I wish they delivered BOTM to Canada. 9mo
SaturnDoo @LibrarianRyan I have a Twitter account but don't use it 😂 I've never really figured it out👎 I ❤ Book Page flier and the Bookmarked magazine. 9mo
SaturnDoo I roam the bookshelves for hours at the library and always come up with new books and authors. Usually based on spines and covers. I also find lots here on Litsy and GR 😂 9mo
Clwojick @SaturnDoo Those #CoversThatPullYouIn 😍😍😍 They always get me 🤣 9mo
LibrarianRyan @Clwojick

A lot of libraries don't make an upcoming lists. It think it depends on how many use standing orders. I loved standing orders because you would get notice 6-9 months ahead of time on the big popular books. The minute I would get notification, it would go in the catalog so patrons could place holds, but with the budget crunch's a lot of libraries have gotten away from planning their collection.
LibrarianRyan @SaturnDoo I don't use my twitter for much except winning books. that sounds sad but its true. But it does sometimes lead to interesting reading. I am working up a presentation currently about Twitter, Teens, and the battle for better books, about the action twitter is playing in what is available for teens to read. 9mo
Kimberlone @Clwojick that is lame! I am in Alaska and that‘s basically Canada 😉 9mo
AnansiGirl The new releases at the library is usually my go to place discovering new authors. Then it‘s Litsy of course, Bookpage flier, BOTM, sometimes a bookstagram review, maybe an eye catching pretty cover or favorite author blurb at bookstores. And I‘m a newbie with BookRiot‘s GetTBR subscription. I‘ll see how that goes with my first box. Oh and sometimes movie adaptations not knowing it‘s from a book led to new authors. 9mo
SaturnDoo @LibrarianRyan 🤔🤔🤔I bet that's interesting. Maybe I should reinstall Twitter and see if I can figure it out. 😊 9mo
SaturnDoo @AnansiGirl I ❤ Book Page flier. I always have lists and lists from that. 9mo
SaturnDoo @Clwojick yep. I'm a cover lover. Sometimes, the covers are better than the book 😂 but it's still fun to browse the library shelves and find those hidden gems ❤ 9mo
AnansiGirl @SaturnDoo the tbr grows and grows perusing Book Page. 📚📚📚📚 9mo
SaturnDoo @AnansiGirl it most certainly does. But I guess that's part of the fun of being a 📗🐛🤣 9mo

How to Stop Time | Matt Haig

I admit, I bought this because of the illustrations by Chris Riddell. But I'll recommend this unconventional time travel novel because of the author/writing.

It was good, even after my suspicion about the ending was proven to be right.

Also, you should definitely read it before it's a film. 😁

TheReadingMermaid You're doing great girl. Keep it up! 😃 9mo
julesG @TheReadingMermaid The birthday might be tricky. I share my birthday with a lot of great personalities, a few contemporary celebrities (Al Gore, Ewan McGregor, Christopher Walken), the Eiffel Tower, but the authors I found are "meh" to me. 9mo

jenniferw88 @julesG have you tried Wikipedia for your birthday? Just type date & month into the search bar - that's how I got mine. 9mo
Clwojick That cover is gorgeous #CoversThatPullYouIn 9mo
julesG @jenniferw88 Yes, that's what I did. Lots of royalty, composers, sports people. A few authors, some of whose books I'll probably find at the university library. But it's definitely not my usual fare. I could read "Ode to Joy" out loud - I could sing it even, not nice, but I could. ? 9mo

The Binding | Bridget Collins
post image

The Binding is a beautifully written novel but it is a slow burn. It took me a while to get into the book and even after that the story line was fairly slow. If you keep reading though, you won‘t be disappointed. The only complaint is that there could have been more about binding. Overall I really enjoyed it, plus that cover is amazing!

Huge thanks to @WilliamMorrowBooks for an arc.

Yeah_I_Read I‘m reading this right now! I really like it so far 9mo
Clwojick Sigh! This is stunning! #CoversThatPullYouIn 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz It's funny how the title is The Binding but the main story isn't about it... I mean that's what I've been reading from most reviews... 9mo

TheLibrarian @Jee_HookedOnBookz It isn‘t but it is. It‘s hard to explain. I wanted more about the process and background. But binding does play a big part, just not in the way I was expecting. 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @TheLibrarian ahhh! OK... Still contemplating if I should read this or not. Should I? 9mo
TheLibrarian @Jee_HookedOnBookz I‘d give it a try. And just remember it gets better as the story goes on. The beginning dragged a bit but it does pick up. If you do read it I‘ll be curious to see what you think. 9mo
TheLibrarian @Clwojick I‘m a sucker for a good cover. 9mo
TheLibrarian @Yeah_I_Read Glad you are enjoying it! I look forward to see what you think of it once your done. 9mo
Kimberlone I also wanted more background and development of the binding! I actually liked the first part which actually focuses on his apprenticeship the most and wished that had been what the book was actually about! 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @TheLibrarian gahhhhh it's not available on my Libby! 😭😭😭 But I'll definitely let you know what I think of it once I get to it 😊 9mo
