Skip Beat!, Volume 1 | Yoshiki Nakamura
post image

#inspiredbylitsy (since I've decided I don't like the negative vibe I get for myself when I say #blameitonlitsy) and @xicanti.

For me this first volume is a pick on the so-so end of the spectrum, but sometimes the first volume of a #manga can be that way. I love the determination of the main character and I'm already in love with the president of the agency. I had several laugh-out-loud moments. I'll definitely read the next two volumes.

xicanti Lory is fabulous! I think he might be the most flamboyant character in all of fiction. I wasn‘t initially hooked by this first volume, either, but the next two pulled me in. Nakamura‘s layered approach pays off in a big way as everything rolls along, too. 1d
Sace @xicanti I loved him in the second volume too. I think I'm getting used to the writing maybe? I've been reading more straightfoward manga with fewer asides and thoughts so sometimes I'm having trouble following who is saying/thinking what. Does that make sense? 1d
xicanti @Sace definitely. This last reread really hammered home for me that SKIP BEAT! is a hard manga. Nakamura often juggles three or four narrative streams at once, between the dialogue, the characters‘ surface thoughts, and their deeper observations. It takes a bit to get used to. 1d
Sace @xicanti that makes me feel better. I might give it more that 3 volumes. 1d

#GratefulReads Day 12: Not really #AShortStory but more like essays/vignettes. This is a #BlameItOnLitsy title or to be more precise #BlameitOnReggie. @Reggie 🤣😂🧚🏼‍♀️

Cathythoughts The lunch looks delicious 😋 delicious 😋 2d
Reggie This pic makes me hungry. Hope you‘re liking the book. 2d

The $50 I spent for an out-of-state library card was the best money I every spent. It's #blameitonlitsy of the best kind.

Librarybelle I‘ve been so tempted to do this, just to say I have a card with Brooklyn Public Library. Maybe I‘ll treat myself to one over the holidays... 3d
LauraBeth So many books! 💃 3d
Crazeedi I have a free one from Philly's public library. This one sounds awesome too. I love overdrive/ libby! 3d

Sace @Librarybelle @LauraBeth sometimes I feel guilty for using it more than my local library, but whenever I check my local they don't have the book I'm looking for (electronic or physical.) 😔 BPL has paid for itself for sure. 3d
Cinfhen It‘s great that your able to do that!!! And your supporting the library system 💓💓💓 3d
Sace @Crazeedi is it free because you live in the area? 3d
Sace @Cinfhen two actually since I also paid for an out of state card for the Fairfax VA library too. 😃 3d
Cinfhen Even better!!!! 3d
Lcsmcat I agree so much! I love my BPL membership! 3d
kwmg40 I live in a small city outside Toronto and I pay annually for a Toronto Public Library card. Worth every penny! Most people don‘t realize you can get memberships for public libraries outside your region. 3d
Sace @kwmg40 I know I didn't until Litsy! 3d
Sace @Lcsmcat Me too. Though I still buy (too many) books I have been able to really curb it since I got the PBL and Fairfax cards. 3d
Billypar BPL is my library and I'm a big fan: I've never gotten audio books anywhere else, so I have no standard of comparison, but seems like the selection is pretty good. Never thought to look into out of state library card options 🤔 3d
Tamra I didn‘t know about out of state library cards! 3d
Sace @Billypar @Tamra I try to use my local library, I really do but most of the time they don't have what I'm looking for in their collection. They don't use overdrive/libby, which I prefer. They use Hoopla, RBdigital and CloudLibrary, which really aren't that great. I can't do one search I have to search the physical collection on the website and then search each app. It's not really the library's fault....👇 3d
Sace ...our community/state doesn't really fund it well and I'm sure they are doing the best with what little they have. 3d
Tamra @Sace I get it! My small city library rarely has the ebooks and audio books I want, so I use a large in state library for those. 3d
sprainedbrain Yes! I spent another $27 per year to also have a card at Fairfax County Library. 😃 2d
Sace @sprainedbrain Hmmm 🤔 Now that I'm thinking about it, you may be the Litten who inspired my doing this.. 2d
JeansBookshelf I have BPL too. Got it in August. Right now I can't check out anything because my card needs verified for some reason. 😭 2d

This is a #blameitonlitsy find, as Id never heard of JVN, and...

She is ADORABLE!! Ironic the core question at the heart of this memoir is, would you still love me if you knew all my parts? I have no idea, Jackie, who are you?!? Mystery solved - love, squish, whole 9 yards!

I bought books I didn't need today!! 😃😃😃😃

Lynnsoprano That‘s me almost every day 🤣 Those darn Kindle deals! 3d
Sace @Lynnsoprano kindle deals are evil! 3d
ravenlee I went to BN today when I had a little extra time to myself (which NEVER happens) and then I snuck my two new books into the house like they were drugs or something! 😆 Especially because I already read one from the library but liked it so much I wanted my own copy, and there‘s no way the hubby would understand that. 3d

My first finish of #mrbook1inamillion #litsypartyofone and #24b4monday. This is a total #blameitonlitsy and am I ever thankful. I adored the story of Deja and Josiah on their last night at the Pumpkin Patch. This was also my introduction to Rainbow Rowell, and I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.

Andrew65 Well done! 👏👏👏 3d
Mollyanna @andrew65 Thank you! 3d

I literally just stepped into work for the night & got this notification. 😫

I was waiting for it allllll morning/afternoon.

Oh well. At least now I have something to look forward to when I get home. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Ocean at the End of the Lane is in top 3 favorite Gaiman for me so I'm crazy excited to see what the illustrated version looks like. 😁

ImperfectCJ Ooh! I didn't know there was an illustrated edition of this one! 5d
