I just booked my flights to LA for a week in April and I am SOOOO excited! I‘ve missed America so much! Any recommendations at all please drop them here I am counting down the days, I‘m going to stay with one of my best friends from my first job and I haven‘t seen her since she moved back so this all coming together is so amazing

Wow. On my list this year was to finally read Walter Mosley. Fast-paced detective novel reflecting the Black experience in Post-WWII L.A.

Liz_M Fantastic cover! 3d

Somehow I finished this quarter of #booked2020 already. 🥳🥳

The tagged book was my final read, about the bomb that exploded at the LA Times in 1910, resulting in many fatalities. I listened on audio and it was one of those books that wasn‘t good and wasn‘t bad. It was interesting and well written but didn‘t hold my attention, which is crucial for me on audio but sadly not uncommon. #hollywood

A librarian and book seller worked together to steal $8 million worth of rare books from the library and resell them. Greedy bastards 😤

I love this series, but I'm glad I waited to binge read a few of them in a row! Listening to book 3 right now, in anticipation of Joe's return to our bookstore!

I've been accompanying major home cleaning projects with audiobooks so my dogs and I both listened to this one, a novel of connected stories from different points of view, most of them from the traditionally Mexican neighborhood of Echo Park, displaced by Dodger Stadium and surrounding gentrification. Strong voice, great in audio, a few racist terms that are uncomfortable.

This is on my January #tbrexplode list and I listened in #hoopla

I liked the first book in series the most, and the second almost as much. The third is hyper-violent and not as well-written.
