No Exit: A Novel | Taylor Adams

I have been MIA from Litsy lately - crazy busy with work and life and very little time to read. Trying to get back on track. I have a couple hours this morning to myself before family takes over so I‘m spending time with these books. By the way - if you are not listening to the 3 Book Girls podcast I highly recommend you check it out! Awesome ladies discussing all kinds of books 🤗📚

Zelma I‘ve been having trouble getting in Litsy lately too. Work is so busy and exhausting, and I am reading in my spare time rather than playing on social media. Ooh, thanks for the podcast rec! 7mo

I love three day weekends! I feel like I have an extra day just for reading. Today I want to make some progress on this one...it is phenomenal and so beautifully written (and so long!). I‘m also reading As Long As We Both Shall Live which, at only 20% in has me completely intrigued about what's going to happen next. Happy Monday and Happy Reading 🤗📚

I‘m looking forward to reading this one. The authors Beth and Sarah host the podcast Pantsuit Politics which is the best podcast on politics that I‘ve found - really the only one I can actually listen to!!

LauraBeth I ❤️ Pantsuit Politics! Sadly, I haven‘t listened to it much since the election because I began to notice when their emotions ran high - it made my emotions run high! 😂 I‘m looking forward to reading this book though. 10mo

Same book, same place as yesterday. Had to call in sick to work which basically meant I had to work from home :( as I am still very under the weather. Still working on this book - have had a great run if nonfiction reads this year and this one is no exception. It is going to be hard to find a fiction book that will keep me engaged.

A little quiet time before the football game tonight. This would be a great one for anyone getting snow this weekend. Takes place in a remote inn during a blizzard and everyone gets snowed in. Then the bodies start piling up 😳 Kind of like a modern version of And Then There Were None. Perfect for staying inside curled up on the couch while the snow piles up outside. Unfortunately no snow for us in Houston 😢#reading #read2019 #pickupabook

Long drive home but audiobook helped pass the time. If you are looking for a completely riveting, edge-of-your-seat nonfiction thriller, try Bad Blood, Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou. Crazy good! Keeps you wondering how this could actually happen. Sounds like the script for a great movie but these are real people doing very unethical stuff 😱#reading #roadtripaudiobook #unreadshelfproject2018 #read2019

Had a long road trip today and my mom and I listened to this one....picked it up because it says it‘s about a guy traveling through Scotland touring distilleries and looking for the best whiskey. That was actually a very small@part of the book...author went on A LOT of tangents and political rants. If you are looking for books on traveling through Scotland or on whiskey, I would look elsewhere.

Made a quick trip to DC for work this week. I started this book the day before I got there and then got the chance to visit the National Marine Corps Museum in Quantico and was able to see the exhibit based on the main battle in this book. I highly highly recommend the book (one of the best I‘ve read this year) and the museum (absolutely amazing and breathtaking)

“You may need to do things you‘re uncomfortable with, say things you don‘t agree with, maybe even lie. Probably lie. Let‘s be honest: You‘re gonna lie a lot.”
This book is about a woman who decides to put her very successful career on hold and run for the Senate. It is effective so far in showing someone with the purest motives for serving having to play the absurd game of politics. Very fun!
