My niece is reading this for school and I'm super excited about it...mostly us having read same book 😁
I so wanted Hermonie to end up Viktor Krum ❤
A journey with Joshua Foer on how he became the American memory champion by researching how memory champions memorize so much data so fast. Interesting read.
My new favorite HGTV show Home Town has me searching to know more so of course I read their book and enjoyed it. Do wish they had spent a bit more time on how they fixed up houses before the show than they did. Really enjoyed that they both read parts of the book and recited their own memories. I just ❤ them.
Anthony Horowitz is new favorite writer for me, top 10 for sure. Magpie Murders was clever and The Word is Murder is even more so, Anthony is an actual character in his own book. Look forward to reading the second book in this series and other Horowitz's books.
Disappointing. After reading the Next Door Neighbor I thought this book would be much better than it was and when they killed the dogs I was completely done with it and didn't care what happened to the girls.... I finished it and was just blah... Marwood is a talented writer but this story just went round and round, was like watching paint dry. Note to all authors: never kill the pets. Never. 🐾🐾📚
I guess I'm in a nerdy phase of book reading lately 🤓 narrator is great which is a find for nonfiction books like these
Finished Introduction and half way into chapter 1, I typically don't start a new book at the end of a work week but feeling weird... 🤷🏻♀️
Author Sam Kean tweeted ME 🤯
So very cool 😎
And another fan recommended another book he wrote Ceasar's Last Breath... added to my TBR 🙂
Completely geeking out on the periodic table 🤓. Wish school had made chemistry this interesting. You know a book is good when it opens curiosity and has you look at other sources of information to learn more and this book is just that 💯. 👩🏻🏫⚗🧪🧫🧬🔬
Someone told me that books that make you feel things you don't like are actually good for you, growth or something like that.... so many times I thought of bailing on this book but her voice was so enchanting and it was out of my comfort zone to read so I finished it but was still a so so read for me.
I've never seen Top Chef so went into this read knowing nothing about her.
I heard many people rag on this book probably because its predecessor, The Martian, was such a phenomenal book. I thought this book was great it just needed one thing.... an epilogue. After this book I read Weir's short stories called "The Egg", another great read!! I will definitely be reading Weir's next book
Should have waited for it to become available at the library but was so excited I bought it and was disappointed. The whole book was just snippets of Super Soul Sunday Ah Ha's... not saying some were good life tips but really thought she was writing an original book.
I have read decluttering books b4 & gotten a few things out of Peter Walsh & miss Marie Kondo "Spark of Joy" & Julie Morgenstern but THIS is the 1st book that had a major shift. Keep whatever you want as long as it fits in the "container" THEN apply other wisdom from other decluttering masters made it actual possible to do. I'm so happy I stumbled on this little jem of a book. Even made the beginning chapters of annoying parts tolerable
Just what I needed right now. 🎈 Some better than others but all well written and worth the listen. 🎧
Is it wrong to select a book by its narrator?? If it is, I don't want to be right 😉 Imogen Church is one of my favorites 💗
I was hesitant on this one, wanted something light but had some preconceptions on this book and well Drew Barrymore herself.
Does anyone wait to commit to reading a book on Listy and or Goodreads until your a few chapters in? 🙋🏻♀️
Well, I'm so glad I did start it and will recommend it to anyone who asks and even some who don't, what to read next. 💖📖🌺
I seem to always slow down at the end of the year, this year no different. Reading and re-reading chapters in this one, hope it sticks.

I‘ve seen Littens tag books with a ribbon before the title....how is this done?
