Just started this and I'm loving it. I need recommendations for your favorite reads that are lighter reads. Any old favorites? New great reads? I'm looking for fun and light.....

All I can say is wow!!! This book kept me in suspense from the first page to the last. It is so smart and so well written. I love reading a book that leads you down a path, so perfectly choreographed that it's like a dance. No detail was overlooked, and I wasn't left with any questions or inconsistencies 5 stars. Thank you to netgalley for the ARC of this book

It's not a long book but it was a well written thriller. It kept me on my toes from the very beginning ( so much so that I actually had to read the last chapter before I could finish reading-I'm the worst!). I hoped the story wouldn't be convoluted into something silly and it wasn't. It's about a mother who will doing anything to find her kids. I could see being made into a great movie. 4 stars. Thank you to blogging for books for my free copy!

RadicalReader @BeyondtheBookends2 cannot wait for this novel to be made into a movie. Terrific doesn‘t even begin to describe how wonderful through and engaging I see this translation from book to film. Seriously want the author to make a cameo 2y

I think my biggest problem with this book is the disconnect between what the book is about and the book description. This book is not magical and spellbinding. That is a wrong choice of words. To me, this book was a tragedy and I hated every part of the ending. I didn't feel the author provided a good enough explanation for some of Rose's behavior and for me, it almost nullified the rest of the book.

When It's Real | Erin Watt

This book also fell along the same lines as When Dimple Met Rishi. It was a fun book to listen to. Kirsten and I loved the Paper Princess Series also by Erin Watt and we had mixed feelings about this book. It didn‘t quite live up to our expectations but, I really enjoyed it. It's the book version of a soap opera!!!!

I wasn‘t prepared for how good this audio book would be. It's one of the best books that I have ever listened to -more like a play rather than a book. Mitch Albom read the part of the narrator (Music) who is telling the story of the life of a fictional guitar player named Frankie Presto. At his funeral, musicians like Ingrid Michaelson and Lyle Lovett tell stories about his life. It was a wonderful book and I enjoyed listening to every minute!

Blueberry Sooo good. 2y

Today is kids book review day and this was a month of sequels for us. If this book looks familiar to you, its because you probably know its beloved older brother Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. My kids actually got this back in April, but their recent obsession with Playmobil has reignited their interest in books related to construction. This one introduces 4 new characters to the Construction Site.

I can't neglect to mention a great kids book when I find it!!!! Morris the mole has always been different but he embraces it. The moral of this story is twofold: embraces your differences and small creatures can do great things. I love it!

#TBT Read this last year but I saw it on my shelf and couldn't resist. If you haven't read this yet, be prepared for a powerful book that will change the way you see things. This should be required reading in every high school in this country!

All I can say is wow! Thank you so much for this ARC. This is a truly phenomenal book. And while it's written about A very difficult and recent time in our history, it somehow doesn't preach. It is a beautiful story about a nine-year-old white girl and a black woman whose lives become intertwined. I truly feel it is a must read. It is funny, heart-wrenching and impeccably written. This is a Stunning accomplishment in writing.

A Million Junes | Emily Henry

I had the pleasure of reading this book and I absolutely loved it. This is a perfect summer time read with just the right amount of romance, conflict, mystery and magic.

It‘s light, well-written and has just the right amount of magic. A Million Junes is a Young Adult novel; however, it doesn‘t feel juvenile or silly. I love reading a good young adult book to mix it up especially in the summer.

I think my issue with this book was that I listened to it on an audio book. While this can sometimes enhance the book, in this case, I found it difficult to listen to. The voices sounded fake and overacted so that the conversations sounded forced. I really wanted to like this book.

DebinHawaii Welcome to Litsy! 🎉📚👍😀Hope you enjoy it here! 2y
BeyondtheBookends2 Thanks!! 2y
Mdargusch I'm halfway through this book and skimming so many pages. I decided to read some reviews to see if I am the only person not feeling this book. 2y
BeyondtheBookends2 @Mdargusch I am so glad someone else feels the same way as I do. I felt like I could have skipped 19 hours of listening without missing much plot 😬 2y
