How to Make a Book Report | Jennifer Overend Prior
post image

I doubt I‘ll finish or start anything today, so I‘m going to do my #bookreport early. This was a week of bails. Both non-fiction ARCs bored me, but I was in a mood this week and I‘ve been migraine-y and emotional, so it‘s probably more me than either book and Cilka‘s Journey was all me. I finally started Ausma‘s book and am enjoying it, and got four audiobooks done for #MountTBR. So, overall a mixed bag of a week. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Cinfhen I‘d say you had a good week! If I‘m feeling migraine-y my reading is way off too because I‘m emotionally off too!! 5h

I am horribly behind my #mountTBR challenge, I need to read 22 books of my 2018 TBR. The new ones I have been waiting for are currently waiting on the shelf and judging silently. BUT! I am so happy I finally read this. It was a good fantasy with an interesting premise, not too complicated, the enemy the Wild is old, but on top there is a layer of political scheming. It's very forward, and the story progressed almost a bit too fast.

A vivid read that really takes you to Vietnam and inside the characters minds. It‘s written in small, to the point sentences which when done right (like this) I love. O‘Brien plays with memory & fiction & what‘s real & what isn‘t but it worked so perfectly in putting across the point that you just can‘t know what war is truly like etc. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #soldiersstory #booked2019

Cinfhen This was such a powerful book. I read it years ago and haven‘t forgotten it 5d
merelybookish Great review! Ditto @cinfhen ☝️ The title story in particular has stayed with me. 5d
Liz_M This is one of my all-time favorite books. It was also my first introduction to meta-fiction. 5d

BookNAround To prove just how old I am, O‘Brien was the writer in residence at my college right after this came out so I got to be in a writing fiction class that he visited for a week or so. 5d
kspenmoll This book has defined Vietnam for so many over the years. Agree with you all; it stays with you. 5d

Pretty good thriller. The gimmick is that the protagonist is a math genius and that allows her to quickly evade bullets and plan escape routes. Overall, just a bit too outrageous plot turns for me to pick up the next one. #MountTBR #Audiobook

swynn Well dang. Sorry it didn't work for you, but yeah it's definitely over the top and I understand bouncing off its outrageousness. I've just finished the second in the series, and though I enjoyed it the excesses are not toned down -- so probably a good decision not to continue. 7d

So of course after reading this I start thinking about public statues. And I feel the need to find Osman‘s book and read it for myself. This is why my TBR is huge 😁

I really enjoyed this! It was a fun and entertaining read, I can see why kids love this series. I‘ll definitely be reading the others soon.

And this fulfills my last prompt for the #MGME portion of #BBRC (cover change mid-series). I‘ll be updating my google form tomorrow, on to #teenangst!

#pop19 1 mil+ reviews on GR

CarolynM I was wondering what to choose for the cover change prompt. I might give this one a go too🙂 1w
Blh87 Such a good series! The Heroes of Olympus series that followed this series was also SO good! 1w
LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. @CarolynM there are a bunch of suggestion on my time line under #coverchangemidseries (I think ) 1w

LibrarianRyan @CarolynM I lied. There are a few under that. I‘ll look up the tag I used for all the others tomorrow morning. 1w
veritysalter Ah a fellow lover of “crackle TV”!! 🔥🔥🔥 I use it in my garden room that doesn‘t have a fire, the best noise to read to. 1w
4thhouseontheleft @veritysalter 😂😂 YesX I love the sound! We actually have a gas fireplace in this room, but sometimes I want the sound without the heat. 🔥 1w
veritysalter @4thhouseontheleft Best thing on YouTube, it gives off the cosy vibes, with a book, a blanket and a warm drink (dog or cat optional) - heaven. Happy reading 📖 xx 1w

If you loved #scarathlon you need to get in on this! We're going to have another themed month filled with books, movies, games and points, points, points!!! If you're like me and not into "holiday reads" you can still join and get some of that never-ending #MountTBR tackled before the year is up!

Sign up and finish the year off with a bang!


FantasyChick And for any of you who felt that you got bombarded with less than bookish posts in the month of October and just don't want to play, the hashtag to mute is #WinterGames 😉 @Clwojick @StayCurious 1w
Clwojick Well said! Thank you, love! I know this event isn‘t for everyone... but so many of you had a blast with the event and I‘d love to keep Litsy enjoyable for everyone. We will request that everyone uses the #WinterGames hashtag on all points, which will make it easier for anyone to mute if need be. ♥️ 1w
FantasyChick Haha I never even thought that everyone might not use that hashtag @Clwojick 😱 Thanks!! After reading all the questionnaires today it's obvious that sooo many people enjoy these events but there are some that don't. At least this way there is an option so everyone can enjoy 😊😊😊 1w
StayCurious Thanks for sharing and for the info! Although, we are trying to include bookish prompts I understand that some people will want to ignore us lol. 1w
