The Stand | Stephen King
post image

It's super appropriate to choose this title for the prompt because I'm currently rereading it with litsy peeps! 😃💕📚 This is the book that made me a King fan. Prior to this book, I did not really like his work. But the excellent worldbuilding, storytelling, and characterization of this tome stole my heart and converted me into a fan for life!

DaveGreen7777 Reading this book right now, I can totally understand why this made you a fan. Between the fleshed out world and seeing how all the inhabitants of it are being affected by the onset of Captain Trips, I‘m fully invested in this book now! 🤤 4w

This is the first Barbara Kingsolver book I have ever liked out of the many that I've read.

Texreader Interesting that you‘ve kept reading her books. I stopped after despising Poisonwood Bible, a most unpopular opinion. 4w
Blueberry @Texreader three of them for my f2f bookclub. 4w
Texreader @Blueberry That makes sense. So you liked this one? What made this one different? I wonder if I should try it. 4w

Cathythoughts I really want to try another one , like @Texreader , I did not like ( or even finish) Poisonwood ... it put me off ! 4w
Blueberry @Texreader @Cathythoughts i read Poisonwood Bible and gave up on The Lacuna, Flight Behavior, and Animal Vegetable Miracle. If you do read Unsheltered, let me know how you like it. 4w
TrishB Loved Poisonwood and The Lacuna and this one 😁 I think this one was my fave. 4w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘ve heard great things about Poisonwood and Unsheltered!! 4w

Station Eleven: A novel | Emily St. John Mandel

I know many people love this but I let this sit on the shelves for quite a while until earlier this year. It was a pleasant surprise, I liked it!

#ThoughtYouWouldntLikeButDid - Going into the Wheel of Time series, almost anyone who read it agrees on something... things really slow down in the middle books. Since Book 7 is where the “slog” is supposed to begin, I expected to be bored. But with some events from earlier books moving forward, the introduction of a badass character (that would be Cadsuane) and Rand FINALLY doing more than just moping, I really enjoyed this one!

TheSpineView I could never finish this series. Maybe at some point I'll get back to it. 4w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I love this pic!! Too cute!! 📚🤗 4w
Alora 😂 Love it! Lol 4w

DaveGreen7777 @TheSpineView My buddy read of the series with @Branwen got stalled at book 8, but we do plan to go back to it someday! 😁 4w
DaveGreen7777 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Alora Awww, thank you, both! 😊 4w
ljuliel I think if they ever make online commercials for Litsy, you should be hired to do the commercial ! Do you have a YouTube channel ? If you don‘t, you need one. 😁 4w
Meaw_catlady Great book selfie !!! 😻 4w
DaveGreen7777 @ljuliel Thank you, you‘re very kind! I don‘t have a YouTube channel yet... maybe someday! 😁 4w
DaveGreen7777 @Meaw_catlady Thank you so much, friend! 🤗🖤 4w
Branwen I live Cadsuane so much! 💕😍 4w
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen Cadsuane rocks! 😀🤟🎶 4w

JessClark78 I really need to read this series all the way through. I stopped at book 7 because 8 hadn‘t been published yet and then I never got back to the series. I did recently finish buying the rest of the books I needed so I‘ll probably do that soon. 🙂 4w
DaveGreen7777 @JessClark78 Hope you‘re able to get back into the series again soon! 😀 4w
Deifio I'm still amazed that Sanderson could wrap up the whole series so well. I mean there were soooo many characters and quests and sidequests! 4w
DaveGreen7777 @Deifio I haven‘t gotten to the Sanderson books yet, but I heard he did a brilliant job wrapping it all up! 😀 4w

I freaking loved this book!! AND THE ENDING!!! What the world 👀

OriginalCyn620 Right?! Same! 4w
lele1432 Lol I'm so curious about this book. Some loved the ending and others hated it because they thought it was far-fetched. Which just makes me more intrigued. 🤔 4w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @lele1432 you HAVE to read it!!!! 4w

Christmas 1994 ish and I grudgingly started The Colour of Magic because my then boyfriend would not shut up about Discworld... The rest is history (so is that boyfriend thank goodness 😏🙄😁)

I‘m not a gamer nor the intended audience for this book, so I wasn‘t sure if I‘d like it, but I‘m glad I gave it a go. Loved it!
#thoughtyouwouldntlikebutdid #gratefulreads

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Yeah I‘m iffy on this one, but I‘m going to give it a go!! 4w
Reagan This was way out of my comfort zone but I loved it! I started expanding my reading after this one. 4w

Lanny: A Novel | Max Porter
post image

Having not enjoyed Grief is a Thing With Feathers, and then opening Lanny and being confronted with the above, I put this back down as one I wouldn‘t enjoy. But a couple of people whose opinions I trust said it was good. So I gave it a go.

Best book I‘ve read this year.

#GratefulReads Day 16: This was a case of #ThoughtYouWouldntLikeButDid. This is the perfect poolside read: plot-driven, lots of funny dialogue, story-within-a-story format, death, mystery, and erotic stories. I am glad that this is my first Singapore read for #WomenReadWomen2019. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-kpZ
