SumisBooks Look at you girl! You are READY!!! 5mo
4thhouseontheleft I have Bone Houses on my TBR for October too! 5mo
Lizpixie @TheReadingMermaid I‘ve always been bummed that Halloween isn‘t bigger in Australia, and that it‘s not in autumn! Hard to feel that Fall feeling when flowers are popping up everywhere & you‘re already reaching for the aircon🌻🌞🙅🏻‍♀️ 5mo
Lizpixie @4thhouseontheleft it sounds great, I‘m lucky it came in my #owlcrate seeing as I‘m on a strict #bookbuyban🤦🏻‍♀️ 5mo

post image

#AyUpAugust #Day14 #Animal This one is right up there with “Most unique SciFi ever written” Gary is a half unicorn space pilot who has his ancestral stone ship stolen & is put in chains so Captain Jenny can use his ground down horn to power the faster-than-light drive. Years later,when he‘s finally free,he gets involved in a doublecross & is rescued by the very person who held him captive and has to make a deal with the devil to get his ship back.

Cinfhen Like I said before you post the most unique books 😜 6mo

Lizpixie @Cinfhen why thank you Cindy! @mcipher they certainly are @squirrelbrain it is but it‘s also very good. The sequel, Five Unicorn Flush, came out recently. There goes my #bookbuyban💸 6mo
Katerina I started this book, when the hype was still going strong, but couldn't get into it. I'll give it a second chance soon. 6mo
Squidapus Squidapus loved this book. You think it'll be a silly adventure but holy crap does it get dark and emotionally heavy. 6mo

#wildworld | I loved The Call of the Wild when I finally read it a few years ago. I‘ve yet to read White Fang. How amazing are these covers?!

#marchintothe70s

Cinfhen The White Fang cover is spectacular 😍 12mo
mdhughes72 Have you seen the movie Arctic yet? A-mazing!! 12mo
britt_brooke @mdhughes72 No, but it looks like one my husband and I would definitely like - thanks! 12mo

#BookMail Pt1 I have over a week of books to post, so bear with me. I think there‘ll be a #bookbuyban coming up soon🥺 #somanybookssolittlefunds Anyway, this is the 4th & final book in the MurderBot series, don‘t you love it when you get sent the 1st & 4th book and are still waiting for bks 2 & 3 weeks later? I‘m trying not to even read the blurb for this in case it spoils the other two!🤫

The Unquiet Dead: A Novel | Ausma Zehanat Khan
post image

I can‘t pick one #favoriteseries, but the Getty/Khattak mysteries are definitely near the top of any list of beloved books. The writing and the characters are all great and each book does what great books should do - stretch the reader outside of their comfort zone and make them FEEL. This shelf contains two other favorite series - Khan‘s fantasy series, The Khorasan Archives, and my small Akashic Noir collection. 😍😍 #24in48 #hour30

Lizpixie I‘m a huge fan of her work as well, plus I really need that Noir collection! I can see my #bookbuyban crumbling before my eyes #blameitonlitsy 13mo
DGRachel @Lizpixie I don‘t even bother with book buying bans. I think I‘ve bought at least 30 just this month and that doesn‘t include the preorder that comes out on Tuesday. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I highly recommend the Akashic Noir series. My collection is very small. There are over 100, I think, in print. 😳 13mo
Lizpixie Oh wow. 100 huh. *sees impending obsession coming in 3..2..1*🤓 13mo

DGRachel @Lizpixie The list that came with my ARC of Sydney Noir lists 96 titles as “available now” with another 11 as “forthcoming”. 😱 13mo
Lizpixie 😱*backs away slowly* 13mo
DGRachel @Lizpixie No, no! I NEED someone else to fall into this rabbit hole with me! I only own six so far. You can slowly add them. 😂🤪🤪 13mo

Every time, I tell myself I will not sign up for the Readathon, and then I do. I‘m going to run two timers...one for #24B4Monday, since that one gives me 3 days and another for #24in48. These are the books I really want to finish this weekend, but if I‘m honest, I‘ll probably bail on the tagged book. I‘m 120 pages into, haven‘t touched it in two weeks, and kind of dread opening it up again. 🤷🏻‍♀️

SumisBooks Sounds like it's time to move on from that one honey. Good luck with your challenge. I look forward to seeing your posts throughout the weekend 🤗 13mo
DGRachel @TheReadingMermaid I agree. I just feel bad because it‘s one of the three books recommended by BookRiot‘s TBR service specifically for me. I figure I will crack it open, and struggle through at least one more chapter and if it still just makes me want to poke my eyes out, I‘ll officially bail. 😂 13mo
SumisBooks Ha! 😜 Good plan! 🤘🏻 13mo

Lizpixie Is that the next book in Khans Khattak & Getty series? I‘ve read the first two and loved them. I really need to get the 3rd one soon.👍 13mo
DGRachel @Lizpixie Yes! This is #5 which releases in the US in February. I squealed for a solid 5 minutes when I got an email from the publisher through Goodreads offering to send me an ARC! 13mo
Lizpixie @DGRachel lucky you! Damn, I didn‘t realize I was so far behind. Looks like my #bookbuyban is gonna get stretched a bit! #blameitonlitsy 13mo
Andrew65 We are so glad you do sign up! Good luck! 😊👍 (edited) 13mo
LauraBeth I signed up for #24in48 - hopefully, can get some good hours in 😀 13mo

bbackes Hahaha Sometimes this kind of thing happens! Enjoy the new books! 2y
Tamra I did, earlier this week & today. 😬 2y
mcipher Love this picture!! @ruskigurl16 I'm usually all about the library, too. But Litsy is a bad influence and I've bought (used) books three times this week. 2y
Aaronlisa Me. I have given up on trying to ban myself from buying books. The only time it works for me is when I am saving up to go to a particular book store a few cities away from where I live. This photo is great by the way. 2y
Caroline2 Love the photo! I'm a huge Gilmores fan! I broke my book buying ban to get Ready Player One too if it's any consolation! 😆 2y
JaclynW New books! 😍 Nice picture!! 2y
CoffeeCatsBooks Yeah, I had a book buying ban for last two months but bought about 30 books each month. Book buying bans seem to backfire for me. 📖❤️ (edited) 2y
Zelma You picked some good ones. Ready Player One is quite fun and Hate List was very good. 2y

This is probably my #LastBookMailOfJuly seeing as I've had to instigate a #bookbuyban before the hubby left me. Jeez I'll miss him😂 I had to buy a copy of the first Poirot for the #agathachristieclub buddyread, Peter Robinson is an automatic buy, his DCI Banks series is brilliant, Afterlife was a recommendation in a #bookriot article I believe & The Garden Of Evening Mists was recommended by another Litten when I said I love books about gardens.

Varshitha Love your Classics collection in the background 😍 3y
emilyhaldi I agree with @Varshitha 😍😍😍😍 3y
Lizpixie @Varshitha @emilyhaldi Thankyou, I love the Word Cloud classics, they're so colourful! 3y
