Apparently reading books set during the Second World War has been my theme this year! And I‘m loving it 📖 #DearMrsBird #AJPearce #ww2 #book #novel

I picked up the tagged book the other day at a free little library. And for some reason instead of immediately shelving it, I left it out. Well it‘s been staring down my wife so she started reading it today and is half way through. Y‘all she‘s not a big reader. This feels like my happy dance!

veritysalter I read Dear Mrs Bird with my book club, we all enjoyed it. Happy reading to you and your wife 📚📚 10h
Hooked_on_books That‘s awesome! 9h
Copwithabook @veritysalter it‘s been on my list for a while. With her enjoying it so much obviously I‘m going to need to read it next 8h

Is there anything better than devouring a book only to realize that it is just the first in a series? What could be better?!

Will you enjoy this book as much as I did? Possibly. Did you grow up on a steady diet of cozy mysteries, London procedurals, gothic heroines and PBS Mystery & Masterpiece Theater? Does the following unholy mash-up appeal to you: Dorothy Sayers + Luther + Penny Dreadful? Yes, you say? Then Peter Grant, your guide, awaits!

Mogoeg Do you consider 'Hot Fuzz' to be an underrated masterpiece of British cinema? Do you enjoy telling people that you knew who John Boyega and Jody Whittaker were BEFORE they were Finn from Star Wars and Dr. Who because you own Attack the Block on BluRay? Then this is *definitely* the book for you. 14h
Hooked_on_books So…there‘s a nose in your picture. 🧐 13h
Mogoeg Haha! It‘s a pencil sharpener! We bought a dozen of them for my son‘s 11th birthday - he loved it and they actually come in very handy! 13h

Lucy_Anywhere I got excited when I saw this - I thought the next book had come out! I didn't realise Rivers of London had a different title in the US 6h

Nikki is a first generation daughter of Indian immigrants in London. She is separated by social class from the Punjabi community until she starts teaching classes at the Temple. There she learns that there is much more to these traditional women than she realized. Over the course of the novel Nikki learns from these women and comes to feel that she is also a part of this community.

Things in Jars | Jess Kidd

To help me focus on reading books I already own and hopefully solve my consistent indecision, I created book jars to help me choose my next read. I just have to pick a genre. It's like playing a little game everytime I choose my next read.

Rachel_Anne789 That‘s a fabulous idea! Love the colors. (edited) 2d

It has taken me two months to finish this novel. I had trouble connecting with the characters in the first half. The structure of the the book alternating from present day to chapters about the past felt like it kept the characters at arms length. I found the last 100 pages gripping and flew through them. Certainly a slow character driven narrative with a beautiful ending. 3.5 🌟

Neverwhere | Neil Gaiman
Pickpick

One of my favorite Neil Gaiman books! Absolutely loved the characters and felt so bad for Richard as his world flipped upside down! Who else has read this? What are your thoughts?

Scochrane26 I have this on my shelf & haven‘t read yet. I‘ll prob read in december because it‘s been sitting there too long. 2d
Aims42 Read it for the first time this year, I loved it!! Will definitely be a Halloween re-read for me every year now 🧡🖤🧡 2d

King Rat | China Miville

I picked this up at the local bookstore today and thought I'd start it tonight. I've read several books by China Meiville before but never this one. I've heard it compared to Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, which I loved. I have high hopes for this one.

Reggie Welcome to Litsy! I‘ve never read any Melville either but am curious. 3d
