I can't remember whose post I “stacked this” from but... I want to say think you. I truly enjoyed this one. Radical Self Acceptance is something I strive for. I have been actively recognizing when my thoughts get negative or mean to myself (especially my body) and this book helped to reinforce thks practice. #BlameItOnLitsy #BlameItOnLitsy

RaeLovesToRead It was MEEEEEE 🥰🥰🥰🥰 2d
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 2d
Darklunarose I really loved this book. 1d
ElizaMarie @RaeLovesToRead Thank you so much for recommending this to me. I kept a document where I figured out who recommended what. But... I wasn't consistent. Anyway! Thank you again for recommending it! I absolutely loved it! 1d
RaeLovesToRead I'm just really happy to have spread its message! Quite a lot of "body positivity" books are like "I was rude to an old woman who looked longingly at my cake and asked me if I was "treating myself"". TBINAO is all about love and how people have the right to exist ? 1d

My picks for #BOTM. Honestly I wanted almost all of them but I needed to have some semblance of self control ($$$$), so I prioritized. I heard about the tagged book on a podcast last month so I‘m pleased to see it as one of my options. All my add-ons are #BlameItOnLitsy picks. 😂

This was a #blameitonlitsy impulse read and I don't regret it. Such a moving graphic novel for young adults struggling with their sexuality/identity. Slightly based on the author's personal experience in the scouts, it examines friendship & finding community amid bullying & discrimination. But it is ultimately a story of hope in the face of all these challenges & accepting your whole self unapologetically

Kenyazero An excellent (but intense) impulse read! 2w

I was a little worried that this wouldn‘t live up to the hype but it totally did! It was an unputdownable book that was deliciously twisty! I can‘t wait to get my hands on the next two!!

A #BlameItOnLitsy purchase with an assist from @IndoorDame

For a while now I've been telling myself that I should reserve my Friday evenings and Saturdays for Jewish reading. I haven't actually done it yet though.

(I am way less observant than my bookshelf makes it seem. "Barely observant" is probably the correct description.)

IndoorDame I‘ve been reading it this week and it‘s really speaking to me! (I‘m not sure why I‘m feeling sort of surprised since Toba always has that way about her in person 🙃) If you have a background in the traditional texts it really is the “reimagining” the title hints to, and offers new interpretations of familiar passages. If not, it‘s a fascinating look at modern obstacles to belief and spiritual practice, and possible paths around them for seekers. 1mo
TheBookHippie @IndoorDame well I must get this too… 😅 1mo
IndoorDame @TheBookHippie you‘ll like it! Before she even gets to any philosophy she starts with a chapter on the current neuroscience knowledge of metaphor and what thinking metaphorically does in our brains which totally rocked me! 1mo

Ryan Richardson remembers the night Alison Lane was taken and a cloud of suspicion was over Ryan as everyone was suspecting him but he was never charged. Now he has entered law school and put his past behind him. Ryan gets a call from his father while traveling in Italy. He tells Ryan that Ali‘s car has been found submerged in a lake in his hometown.

EadieB Inside are two dead men and a cryptic note with five words written on the envelope in Ali‘s handwriting: If something happens to me….
This story is told by different characters POV with a twist after twist which kept me guessing until the very ending. I have read all of the other books written by Alex Finlay and they just get better and better.

EadieB If you like fast-paced thrillers then you will love this book. I am now looking forward to his next book as I think he is an excellent writer and I know you will enjoy reading him too. 2mo
Lesliereadsalot Sounds like my kind of book..stacked! 2mo

An intriguing, slightly mystical young adult romance. I loved how it incorporated elements from different cultures and mythologies into its theme, and that the art is really important to the story, not just illustrating the words. It would make a fantastic animated movie.

@Faranae I'm tempted to use this for URC “fine art on the cover“ 'cause it's so gorgeous or should I go more conventional?

Faranae Definitely not one of the “serious“ prompts, so I say go for it. Also, it's a graphic novel so I'll likely actually read it! 2mo
willaful @Faranae I just realized it has a spiral, so I'm going for that instead. Much harder to track down! 2mo

#audiobook #blameitonlitsy #desert #storytelling
A suffragist & scholar of Egyptology,Amelia Peabody is the epitome of the 1920s modern woman.Armed with her journal,umbrella(a handy weapon),& new friend Evelyn, she travels down the Nile to the architectural site of the Emerson brothers.What follows is a wild caper filled with “accidents,” unknown enemies,man-made and environmental obstacles,evil adversaries,supernatural forces,& romance.

StaceGhost I love how she talks about the evil adversary lol 2mo

Started this #BlameItOnLitsy read last night

TheBookHippie One of my favorites! 2mo
TheBookgeekFrau @TheBookHippie It was one of those books that no one had a bad thing to say about it. Since that happens so rarely, I knew I had to read it. 2mo
eskoch28 Ive been debating on this one fore a while and I have no idea what the hold up is for me. Glad to see a good rec @thebookgeekfrau 2mo
TheBookgeekFrau @eskoch28 I'm not very far in yet, but it's living up to its "no bad things to say" Litsy reputation ? 2mo
eskoch28 Love that 🙌🏻 2mo
