One of my favourite books. 🌳❤🌲
I want to read it again. #iwonder if I would still be as fond of it as I was in the past. 🤔

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks So pretty 💚💚 1y
Cinfhen Great pic 😍 1y
batsy Pretty pic! It's one of my treasured favourites and this is why I'm also afraid of rereading it 😬 1y
BiblioLitten @batsy That's one of my biggest bookish fears. Falling out of love with my favourites!🙄 1y

#iwonder if this book will live up to all the hype? Can it possibly? Here I go #makemereadit. #abbainaugust

Meredith3 Good luck! I haven‘t read it 1y
bookandcat I enjoyed this one. My favorite Backman book so far. 1y
Cinfhen It‘s good but sometimes hype is really an expectation shifter....pretty photo 1y

Mdargusch I just can‘t believe I‘m going to actually loooovvvee it like everyone else @Cinfhen @bookandcat I guess I should get off Litsy and find out. 😆 (edited) 1y
Andrew65 Lived up to th hype and more for me! 1y
Aimeesue I had low expectations as well, but I really enjoyed it. I'm having a harder time with Beartown, but I think that's because I hate hockey. 1y
Pamwurtzler I liked it better than Beartown. 1y
kspenmoll Just loved it. Took me a chapter or two to really embrace it. Live the colors in your photo! 1y
Dragon I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. I just watched the movie on Netflix , a good adaptation in my opinion. 1y
Reviewsbylola Possibly not! That‘s usually the case for me at least. 1y
emilyhaldi I hope it's not another Lillian Boxfish situation!!😬 1y
SandyW I find I have to discount the hype 1y
riversong153 I didn‘t like this one much, but it could be just me. 1y
SamanthaMarie I thought it was really lovely. But Ove reminded me of a mix of my dad and my husband 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ 1y
CouronneDhiver It‘s a nice read... I don‘t usually like picking up books with a ton of hype but I enjoyed it anyways 1y

#IWonder if Mildred ever found true love or the confidence to finally stand up for herself. The beauty of this book is the genuine portrayal of flawed characters that don‘t necessarily have a neat ending tied up in a bow.

Meredith3 I hope she did! 🙏🏻 1y
Cinfhen I 🧡this photo and book cover!!! 1y
Mdargusch Good one! And yes she did👍🏼 1y

#AbbaInAugust When my son Eric was little he used to ask a zillion questions... #Iwonder who‘s faster Superman or a flying cheetah? #Iwonder who‘s stronger my daddy or Jacob‘s daddy?? (Your daddy😉) #Iwonder why snot is green? #Iwonder if clouds taste like marshmallows? #Iwonder why hotdogs are called hotdogs if the don‘t bark? 🤔🤔🤔so we bought him the BIG BOOK OF WHY and he was in heaven...#GoFigure❣️

emilyhaldi Lol. This book is brilliant!!! I wonder if @AnnieD read it as a child... Would explain her accumulation of endless useless knowledge 😆 1y
Mdargusch @AnnieD needs this for her bday @emilyhaldi ! Great pick! 1y
Reviewsbylola This is Genevieve. I usually say I don‘t know, go ask your dad. 😂 1y

Centique My 8yo is in exactly this phase! He would love this book 😍 We buy and borrow books like this and he devours them, then on the walk to school he‘s teaching me all the fancy facts 😂😂 1y
Cinfhen You‘re such a good mom @Centique calling your son‘s info “fancy facts” our family referred to Eric‘s info as annoying babble 🙄😂😂 1y
Cinfhen Ask Dad is my catch phrase @Reviewsbylola 😂😂😂 1y

#Iwonder if I will make it through this book. #iwonder why I brought only this one book on my weekend away. #iwonder what books @Mdargusch has hanging around that I could borrow. I do NOT wonder why this book only has 11% litfluence. 😅 #abbainaugust

Meredith3 I‘m jealous of your time at the pool 🏊🏻‍♀️ ! 1y
emilyhaldi Wow. You brought 1 book with you to the lake knowing it has 11% litfluence?! You dropped the ball my friend!!! 1y
Reviewsbylola I didn‘t know. I actually thought it was super popular. I‘m 75 pages in and was thinking WTF am I missing?! So I checked Litsy and was like 🤭🤭🤭 @emilyhaldi 1y

RebelReader I‘d never go on an overnight with only one book! 🤣 I‘d be googling nearby bookstores if I were you! 1y
her-my-oh-nee WAIT! We can see how much litfluence a book has? How? Where? 😮 1y
Reviewsbylola I just mean the rating percentage when you click on the title! @her-my-oh-nee 1y
Reviewsbylola It is the first—and last 😂—time! @RebelReader 1y
Cinfhen Yikes!!!! I‘m sure @Mdargusch will come to the rescue💕 1y
Mdargusch Haha! I think you‘d like Cotillion. 1y

Reviewsbylola #iwonder which marriage this could be about? 🤭 #abbainaugust 1y
Mdargusch No interest here. 1y
AnnieD It‘s a book of poetry that is a commentary on the charade of celebrity in modern society 1y

#IWonder what it is that makes me bail or hate a book, while others rave about it and love it. I hate-read the tagged book and bailed on the other three, but I know they all have big fans on Litsy. I know everyone is different, and I‘m slowly becoming more okay with not loving or even liking a popular book, if it just isn‘t for me 🤷‍♀️


laurenbescoby I bailed on uprooted too. I just couldn't get into it! 1y
Meredith3 You do you, girl! ⚡️✨💫 1y
Lauredhel I hear you! With most books that aren't for me, I'm just all "shrug, this isn't for me" ... But I hate Love in the Time of Cholera with the fire of a thousand suns. ???????????☀☀☀ 1y

erzascarletbookgasm Yes, different strokes for different folks 😊. 1y
JSW I am a little book snobby, I must admit, in what I choose to read in the first place - but i never shame anyone (including myself) for DNF. Life is too short and there are so many other books! 1y
emilyhaldi It‘s always a little disappointing when a much-hyped book is a drag. I‘m scared of this one 1y
Aimeesue For years I kept trying to read fantasy and hated most of it (I don't even like LOTR) but kept trying because I did like *some* of it. Then I realized I only like fantasy if it's based on fairy tales or folklore, or if it's satire, like Discworld. I yam what I yam. 😋 1y
Reviewsbylola Count me as a lover of The Leftovers!! 1y
Kalalalatja @miralunasbooknook it just made me mad!!!! 😡😡 @Meredith3 @Lauredhel @erzascarletbookgasm @JSW I just can‘t believe how long it took me to begin bailing! I still struggle through too many books, and there are #toomanybookstoolittletime to do that! 1y
Kalalalatja @emilyhaldi it really is! I would like to positive about it, but from the 100 pages I‘ve read, I can only say it wasn‘t for me at all! 1y
Kalalalatja @Aimeesue it is wonderful when you finally GET what it is you like! 👌 @Reviewsbylola I think I might have tried it at the wrong time, but I‘m really not inclined to try it again 😄😄 1y
Mdargusch I wonder that too. Must have to be the right book at the right time? 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1y
Cinfhen #AllHailTheBail 🙌🏻🧡 1y
blondie I'm the same way. I swear I'm sometimes the only one who likes a book then at other times I hate a book that everyone else adores. It's crazy how different we all are when it comes to reading the same story. 1y

When I saw the #Iwonder prompt, The Monotones “book I‘d love” is what came to mind, not #abbainaugust. Book of Love made me think of this incredible book. Speaking of love, that peach champagne we are having for breakfast is what they will also serve us at our couples massage in a bit. It‘s been 20 years since our first date, and one year ago today since he first kissed me. (The first date was in HS, we didn‘t like wait 19 years to make out). ♥️

Meredith3 Omg peach champagne sounds so magical right now 🍑 🍾✨ 1y
Hollie @Meredith3 it is magical- you should go get some! 1y
Meredith3 @Hollie I agree with you, I think I should 😹 sounds like you have a wonderful day planned, have fun!! 💫💕💫 1y

Hollie Thank you @Centique we went to Long John Silvers and a movie like we did for our first date- I can definitely wait another 20 years to eat there again 🤢 but when we were 15 it seemed like a good option lol 1y
Centique @Hollie 😂😂 that‘s so funny and cute! 1y
