I Love You, Michael Collins | Lauren Baratz-Logsted
post image

Book 7 of 2020 #ILoveYouMichaelCollins by Lauren Baratz-Logsted - This book is sweet and funny and charming and delightful! At the same time the Apollo 11 mission is happening, Mamie‘s parents have left, one after the other, and she is rocketed into her own drama. Love this one - highly recommend!4 ⭐️ (Caveat - I‘m an English teacher, so my reading list this year is likely to be riddled with lots of middle grades and YA reads!)

A pretty fun box this month for @owlcrate

The book is Scavenge the Stars and I have to say I like their cover better than the original. But a little gilding wouldn‘t have hurt.

It had the next HP in the series, a LotR map banner, Crooked kingdom @outofprint socks to match last years Six of crows socks. The candle has a nice scent and the pill box is nice. And of course the enamel pin rounds things out.

LaraS That map banner is rad 1w

GingerAntics That seems so odd, but at the same time I understand it. Sadly, I think I was taught first grade by a lady like that NYPL librarian. lol It‘s amazing how prevalent some of these ideas still are. 2w

🌕Being better to myself is basically the only resolution I made for 2020. I am a nurturing soul, and if I don‘t give myself love, how can I give love to others? I‘m doing pretty well, thus far. 🌕I am Enough; I am Loved. I am Enough; I am Loved. 🥰 And so are all the Littens reading this! 🌕Wolf Moon Blessings to @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Linsy @NeedsMoreBooks @MaleficentBookDragon @Kappadeemom @rather_be_reading & everyone else!

Artemis | Andy Weir

Great book overall. Listened through Audible with the excellent narration by Rosario Dawson. She nails it. Great to see Andy Weir get to try his hand at a full cast of characters, it feels like I've just seen him get significantly better as an author from The Martian to Artemis.

Picked this up during one of my thrift store trips. I love reading things about the space program, so this was right up my alley! However, I didn‘t realize until tonight (several months later) that it‘s a signed copy, and there was a signed photo of the author in the book as well! 🤩🤓😍

The kids and I spent the morning at our local science center and I was so excited that one of the shows in the planetarium was Magic Treehouse related. Jack and Annie took us in an exploration of space, and all four of us were fans. Even Genevieve, who was grumpy beforehand that she doesn‘t like the book series, had changed her tune by the end. She‘s only tried (and disliked 😂) the first book in the series so maybe now I can get her to try again.

emilyhaldi I dunno what magic treehouse is, but I love the planetarium!! 4w
Bookzombie This sounds fun! I hope she likes the books again if she tries. 4w
Reviewsbylola We should have invited you! I didn‘t realize you were still off of work until it was too late. @emilyhaldi 4w

Limit | Frank Schatzing
post image

These are my six least favorite books of 2019. I rated all of them as pans except for Limit which was technically a DNF, but in spite of this it still takes home the award for my absolute least favorite book of the year because I sunk 475 pages worth of time into it and hated every second of it, so even though I didn‘t actually finish it, I didn‘t think it would be fair to myself if I didn‘t include it. 😅
