A young woman in Belfast, teaching 7 yo‘s at a Catholic school, failing at keeping her mom sober, and helping her brother run the family bar with mostly Protestant clientele- falls for the attention of an older married man. I thought it excellent and learned a lot of Irish slang, tightly plotted, fabulous minor character studies and true sense of place, or seemed - how could I know? Five slices of pie. Read for Tournament of Favorites #ToF2024

First off, this book is hilarious. It‘s very satirical and pokes a lot of fun at own society. Parts of the story were reminiscent of the pandemic and how some political leaders and society handled it. I found it very clever. One of the funniest parts of the book was ogre speak, which was essentially really foul and rude language.

First off, Colin calls Penelope “the most remarkable woman in the world” (pg. 423). I whole heartedly agree. The fact that she was Lady Whistledown for 10 years is impressive. What a smart woman!

I liked Penelope and Colin together. The fact that they were both writers was really cute.

This was such a joy to read! This manga is seriously the cutest thing ever. I was dying over how adorable it was.

Like the title suggests, the main characters are opposites. Suzuki is outgoing and popular, while Tani is more reserved and keeps to himself. I loved seeing their relationship blossom. Their first date was a standout.

Dodged a bullet? Cricket didn‘t due to Gun Loving Loon Kristi N. In Dead Boss Cemetery Vol. III, a gun club faces an ugly, and grotesque scene. The leader shoots her head off when her gun misfires. OH NO! It‘s time for therapy again! https://tinyurl.com/yc2kr2fn

The storyline is fairly simple (basically the main character is in search of a boyfriend), but I didn‘t mind. Less is more in this case.

As for the characters, I really liked the love interest, Eiji. He was so sweet and protective towards the main character.

The best part of this book was definitely the art style. It was so dreamy.

99¢ Special Prescription: If you want to kill your boss, you need therapy! Instead, read this fun and thrilling account of someone who “done it.” This is your prescription-thriller therapy. LOL! https://bit.ly/4b1JHLJ

My #library has more donations than we‘ll ever sell at our booksale and since we‘re going to be having an #alteredbook contest this summer, I made an example. Everything is made from the book, except the mini book covers, which I printed out, and the little paintings, which I printed out and glued onto some plastic buttons I had laying around. And since it‘s a Strike book, I was able to sneak my signature in it 🥸

Celebrating #NationalLibraryWeek & honoring all librarians in this brave new world of having to defend the right to read. Thomas Hughes Free Public Library pic is from yesterday's visit to Rugby, TN. The #library opened in 1882 with over 5000 donated books. The utopian community didn't succeed, but the library & 7000 books remain for visitors to peruse & appreciate. A few views to add to one from @plemmdog #litsylibrarians #litsylibrarian
