BookwormAHN I'm still reading it. I loved The Mist. 4d
DGRachel @BookwormAHN I didn‘t attempt this one, but I‘m glad you‘re enjoying it! Anything in particular stand out about The Mist? 4d
BookwormAHN @DGRachel For one thing the book ending is a lot less bleak than the movie one. Also the story really sucks you in until a mist filled with giant monsters seems completely plausible. And you really feel for the main character David, he has a very everyman feel to him. 4d
DGRachel @BookwormAHN Sounds really good. I may have to add it to my TBR for next October! 4d
Karkar The Mist was one of the two stories I liked in this collection. I was disappointed in this one. 😬 4d
JulAnna The Mist is definitely my favorite in this collection, but I also liked The Jaunt, Word Processor of the Gods, and The Raft. I liked more of the stories in Night Shift than in Skeleton Crew, but there are few authors who can deliver a short story as well as Stephen King. He can write a strong character in a few words, imho. 4d

#KeepLitsyActive

1) I love meeting fellow bookworms. I like how I can search for posts related to the book I‘m reading or interested in. I‘ve discovered so many #goodreads because of Litsy! Also love the swaps and penpal groups!
2) Nothing!
3) Would love an Owned TBR and Not Owned TBR.
4) Whenever I have a post I‘d like to share 💕
5) Love all, but haven‘t done a #readalong yet. Not sure how to find them
6) Bit higher character count?

ljuliel Great to hear your answers. I‘m glad you like it here so much. Are you following #litsyhappenings. . ? I believe that might be an area that posts or reposts events such as read alongs. Or check in with @Andrew65 , as he is currently doing at least one read along group. I know there are others that also do them. Another one to check would be @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks , as she also does them, but I‘ve no clue what her schedule is. 2w
Alora @ljuliel Awesome, thank you so much! I will check them out! 💜📖 Thank you for creating this! 2w
Clwojick Check out #ListyHappenings @LitsyHappenings ♥️♥️♥️ 2w
See All 36 Comments
Clwojick I also agree with the higher character count. 2w
Alora @Clwojick I followed @LitsyHappenings , thank you!! Yes, I think a little bit higher would be great! Especially for book reviews. 2w
Insightsintobooks I agree with 3! 2w
Alora @Insightsintobooks It would be so useful for a number of reasons! For personal tbr piles, and for swaps!! I like to keep the books I own and haven‘t read on my tbr, but when I am in a swap I have to remove them 😂 2w
Butterfinger @MrBook is celebrating his 1,000,000 litsy points this weekend by hosting a readathon. I am really looking forward to it. 2w
Alora @Butterfinger Me too!! This is my second readathon. Hoping to get a lot more reading in this time! 😃📖 2w
Butterfinger @alora, I'm sorry. I misread. My brain substituted 'athon' for 'along'. 2w
MrBook 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2w
Alora @Butterfinger haha thats okay!! Don‘t be sorry 😂😊 2w
Andrew65 @Alora We always do the #MaeveBinchyBuddyRead starting on 19th of each month choosing a new book each month reading it over 10 - 14 days posting 4 - 5 discussion questions every couple of days. You are more than welcome to join us, jus check the feed of @Andrew65 or the tag above. We have just finished last month‘s but will start the tagged book later this month. We will most probably choose a new author when we finish her books. @ljuliel 2w
Andrew65 @Alora I always tag in @LitsyHappenings when posting / advertising the buddy reads and they do an awesome job of reposting the reads. @MrBook @Avanders @BookBabe 2w
Andrew65 @dgrachel and @TheReadingMermaid do buddy reads / read alongs too. They are both great people and well worth following. 😍 @Alora (edited) 2w
Alora @Andrew65 Thank you so much for the help! I will join you all for the next month! 😊 2w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks #BotmBuddyRead is mine and Christine‘s monthly book club if you want to check it out!! @TheBookHippie 🎊🙌🏻📚 2w
TheBookHippie Follow our hashtag #BOTMBUDDYREAD we read a book a month and discuss sections every Sunday. POSTED questions are on my page. 2w
TheReadingMermaid #HOLBuddyRead is my next one. Everyone is welcome. Check the hashtag four times and details 😘 2w
MrBook @Andrew65 Love ya like a brother from another mother, man! 🤗 2w
Andrew65 @Alora Be great to have you with us, I forgot to tag the book - I was doing it over breakfast (I live in the U.K.) and was getting a bit late for setting off to work. November‘s book will be Heart and Soul which is one of my all time favourite Maeve Binchy books. I will tag you in when I set up the next Buddy Read. (edited) 2w
Andrew65 Because of having to get to work I didn‘t finish posting I also very strongly recommend @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @TheBookHippie‘s #BOTMBuddyRead. Misty and Christine are two of the greatest people you could wish to meet and do sensational buddy reads. They split books into four sections and post questions each Sunday. I have read some fabulous books with them just frustrated not joined n much recently due to life happening! 👇 2w
Andrew65 @Alora With my buddy reads I try to emulate their great work. My commitments also get caught up as I run two Group Reads a month on Librarything - Mystery and Suspense Books and cohost the Monthly #24B4Monday Readathons. (edited) 2w
Andrew65 I can also very strongly recommend @EadieB @Tove_Reads @gradcat and @Crazeedi , more great people to follow. The five of us read a few books a month together but on a very informal basis with people popping in or out as they want to. This year we have read the Maeve Kerrigan Series by Jane Casey, the Jack Caffery Series by Mo Hayder and the Sean Duffy Series by Adrian McKinty together. Also reading other books together. 👇 (edited) 2w
Andrew65 In 2020 we are targeting three Nordic authors we want to read together. In simple terms the more you get involved in these things on Litsy as @MrBook says the more you get out of it. And you must follow my ‘brother from another mother‘ MrBook, Jason is the million dollar man at the moment! An all round great guy that we all love 🤗🤓and looking forward to the Readathon in his honour this weekend as part of #PartyForOne. 2w
Andrew65 @Alora As you can tell I just love Litsy and the people on it. 😍❣️ sorry for filling up your feed! 😳😱🤔😁🤣😔 2w
Andrew65 @Butterfinger Me too! 😍😍😍 2w
Alora @Andrew65 Thank you so much for all the awesome info! 😍 I will definitely join a few buddy reads! 2w
Andrew65 @Alora Yey!!! 😊😍👍😁 2w
Alora @Andrew65 don‘t be sorry! I love and appreciate all the info! 2w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Andrew65 awww thank you Andrew!! We miss you!!!! 2w
Andrew65 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Need to get myself organised and back to them as miss them. Not helped that often driving at the time questions posted and feel the fun of it is everyone posting answers at the same time. Need to get over that! 😔 (edited) 2w
TheBookHippie @Andrew65 AWE thanks we miss your participation and we read an awful book and missed your humour a few months back 🤣🤣❤️ 2w
Avanders @andrew65 awww we sure do try! 🥰 2w
Andrew65 @Avanders You do more than try, you achieve and your time is greatly appreciated. ❣️😍 2w
Andrew65 @TheBookHippie Need to get my time sorted and get back involved! One or two books need humour. 😂 2w

Last day of my read along of Marked. I finished the book and loved it! As you can see my orange cat helped me read about Nala, the orange cat in the book! I had a hard time putting the book down during the last 100 pages. I am so curious to find out what will happen next! Good thing I have the next three books ready to read! Let me know what you thought of Marked.

Day two of my Marked read along. Today I read chapters 11-19. This section was mostly about two different full moon rituals. I liked learning more about the Vampyres and the rules of their community. I also completely love Zoey‘s friends Stevie Rae and Damien! I also really like Zoey‘s cat. I love female orange cats! Things are getting a little more complicated for Zoey because she isn‘t like theothers. Can‘t wait to read more!

Day one of my read along and the first 10 chapters of Marked. So far I am really like the mix of Vampire and Cherokee cultures. My favorite part was when Zoey described her laughter as birthday cake frosting! I‘m not so into the mean girl storyline and there is some offensive language in here. Some of the 2007 slang is not okay by today‘s standards. Overall I‘m looking forward to reading more! What are your thoughts?
