Beautiful Redemption | Jamie McGuire
post image

This book was okay. I had a hard time liking the main couple. Their 'issues' seemed very contrived and I started to get really irritated by them. The case they were working on was a bit on the confusing side too. Not the best I've read by Jamie Mcguire, but at least she's the same age as me, so I'm able to use this for the #LitsyReadingChallenge #LRC16

Six-Gun Snow White | Catherynne M. Valente

This was a gritty and fascinating retelling of Snow White in the Wild West.

Thanks, Goldie Hawn, for giving birth to your daughter in 1979. I‘ve been working with incorrect information all year as to Owen King‘s age. Since he‘s 40, he won‘t fit into the “someone your age” spot after all! Fortunately, I had this backup read in March!

Rebel Queen: A Novel | Michelle Moran
post image

Historical fiction set during the Sepoy Rebellion. Sita trains to become one of the Rani's elite guards. The premise was intriguing, the execution was a little clumsy and this book didn't quite live up to it's potential, but the historical and cultural aspects were interesting. Good, but not great.

Doing some #challengechecking for the first time in a while. I haven't hit bingo yet in my #LitsyReadingChallenge, but I just filled out what matched with what I read.

I do need some help with #LRC16 - do any of you have any recommendations for books published when the author was 24/25 years old? I have tried googling, but I would love some more recommendations if any of you got some 🙏

Kalalalatja @Martta Yay! There's some good ones on it, so thank you! 3y
jenniferw88 Or you could interpret it as a book that was published in the year of your birth - for example I'm doing this for 1990 3y

Martta I have been thinking about the same problem and I found couple of good choises for myself as well from there. 3y
Cinfhen Like how you checked your boxes! 3y
jfalkens Where do you get the Litsy bingo sheet? 3y
Kalalalatja @jfalkens if you go to @jessica there's a link for the goodreads page where you can download it 👍 3y
jfalkens @Kalalalatja thank you 😊 3y
minkyb Great list @Martta !👏🏻 3y
Bianca I think Taran Matharu's first book was traditionally published when he was 24 (!). 3y
Moray_Reads I think this was written when Helen Oyeyemi was 25 3y
Moray_Reads And Michael Chabon's first when he was 25 3y
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen pic-collage all the way! And glad you liked it, because it took me soooo long 😄😄 3y

Salt Houses | Hala Alyan
post image

Guys, I'd already been so excited to read Alyan's novel and then I learned (courtesy of @thereadingwomen ) that she's my age! She's also stunningly gorgeous, but there isn't a reading challenge prompt for "written by an author you find attractive". I've digressed...

Yay, reading challenges!

#LitsyReadingChallenge #LRC16

RealLifeReading Ok I might just use that as a prompt for next month... 😀 3y
saresmoore @RealLifeReading I think that would be a lot of fun, actually! 3y
Suet624 Just had to laugh when I read this. 😂😂 3y

KVanRead @saresmoore @RealLifeReading that would be an awesome prompt 😍 3y
saresmoore @Suet624 I just knew you'd understand. 😂 3y
saresmoore @KVanRead I think it might reveal some interesting tastes! 3y
shawnmooney I am really curious about this one too! But I've got this classic of Palestinian lit on my pile and will probably read it first: 3y
saresmoore @shawnmooney Well, that sounds like a must-read! Still, Elias Khoury is not nearly as pretty as Hala Alyan. Just saying. 😉 3y

All the Rage | Courtney Summers

I have many, many thoughts about this book, the only postable of which is: I did NOT enjoy it at all.
