#NewYearWhoDis

This was quirky, and adorable, and inclusive and beautifully queer and I loved it. Definitely a top read for this year, and would have made my #newyearwhodis list @mklong if I had read this earlier!

I loved every character to bits. It‘s a romance w/ a dash of magical realism, but at its heart this is also a story about friendship, and found families.

This also fits so many #pop22 prompts I should have waited 3 weeks to read it 🤣⬇️

mklong Looks great!! 2d
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB @KarenUK @Megabooks @Kalalalatja this book fills so many #pop22 prompts! Set on a train; sapphic novel; found family; featuring a party; and probably parallel reality of you stretch a bit. 2d
Megabooks Stacking! Thanks! 2d

4thhouseontheleft @mklong @Megabooks excuse all the typos, I had too many family interruptions when writing one review. 🤣 2d
Cinfhen Woohoo 🙌🏻 thanks for the #HeadsUp - it‘s going straight to #MustReadIn22 pile 2d
Cinfhen How about this for #SummerHeat @barbarabb 2d
BarbaraBB Thanks Alicia for all the #pop22 suggestions. It sounds very good and yes to #SummerHeat @Cinfhen 🙌 2d

Some books are windows and some are mirrors; one need only look at our matching yellow ponytails & shifty googly eyes to know that Brosh‘s book is the latter for me. Her awkwardness, her anxiety, her indomitable creativity. Sure, she‘s much stranger (& I think much smarter & more daring) than me…but I find her so relatable. I love her EveryMillennial stick figure drawings & her sense of humor. I laughed out loud at the same time my heart hurt.👇🏻

monalyisha 1/1: Favorite stories: Richard, Mistake (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!!), Fairness, Loving-Kindness Exercise, The Ugly Duckling 2. (edited) 3d
BiblioLitten I have always loved her blog posts and now I‘m thinking I should gift this to myself 😊 3d
monalyisha @BiblioLitten I think you should, too — especially if you‘re already familiar with her style, her humor, & have a(t least a vague) understanding of her battle with her mental health. It shed some light on her as a person, & and it was pitch-perfect funny, too (while not shying away from her/our struggles to find connection & make meaning). (edited) 3d

Patchshank I love the story of her breaking into her neighbor's house as a kid. I laughed my ass off through that one. 3d
monalyisha @Patchshank I had read that one before…maybe on her Facebook page?…but I still cackled maniacally through the entire thing. 3d
Megabooks This was 5⭐️ for me as well last year. I think it was even on my #newyearwhodis list. 👍🏻 imo it was even better than 3d
BookBosomed1 Haven‘t read this one but I have been a fan of her work for some time! Looking forward to this book 3d

@squirrelbrain mailed me these fab, homemade Litsy Love stickers as a Thank You for organizing the #NewYearWhoDis event. Totally unnecessary but totally appreciated!

Thanks, Helen! I can‘t wait to stick these on my swap gifts! 📦💌

squirrelbrain You‘re more than welcome! I‘m glad you like them, and you put so much work into #newyearwhodis it‘s only a small token in comparison. 3d
rachelsbrittain How sweet! 3d
Clare-Dragonfly Oh my gosh, how lovely! 3d

Thank you @Readergrrl this list is magnificent!! So after researching your list, instead of completing school work 😂, I have chose the tagged.

And I have to add, Addie and Circe were not only two of my favorite reads, they are also new favorite main characters.

monalyisha Sing, Unburied, Sing is one of my favorite books! I loved it so much. I also added the tagged to my TBR. 1w

I finally had time after the Thanksgiving prep and Christmas decorating to sit down with my amazing #NewYearWhoDis list from @4thhouseontheleft I love how wonderfully diverse your list is! I‘ve read, and loved, a few on the list already but here are the ones I hope to get to in 2022. I will probably only have time for a couple of them in January, but hope to eventually get to them all. Thank you so much @monalyisha for such a great match!

Litsy has my December #tbr branching out to many books I would otherwise never know to connect with fellow readers here. I think it‘s perfect for this time of year. 😊

Happy to be reading along with #sundaybuddyread / @TheBookHippie and #shesaid / @Riveted_Reader_Melissa as well as reading after #NewYearWhoDis buddies @erinreads and @monalyisha. Also, my #wintergames team #mistletoemaniacs 🎄
