Bklover @Mollyanna Those are the best kind! 2w
Bklover @Crazeedi This is one of my favorites as well- particularly for pie for some reason! 2w
Bklover @Lauram It has to be just the right time. It‘s a tough one! But beautiful. I‘m going to have to check out Delish next time I‘m at the book store! (edited) 2w

sherryvdh Other than the one my grandmother made for me when I got married, I turn to the tagged one a lot. Especially for the spice rubs. 2w
ljuliel Before we got married I bought the good old Betty Crocker one , as I had literally never cooked in my life. I wore the cover off it , making new things every night. The hubster was the guinea pig. In one year , he gained 100 pounds. 😮😮😮 2w
Bklover @sherryvdh I haven‘t seen that one! I‘ll have to check it out. 😉 2w
Bklover @ljuliel I had that one and the orange Good Housekeeping Cookbook. I used them a LOT when I was younger, and still go to them for pies and some of the basics!❤️ 2w
Bklover @TheLibrarian I have one of her cookbooks too, and I love it. She makes the kind of food my family likes to eat and makes it Better!!! (edited) 2w
AmyK1 I have several cookbooks but don‘t use any of them. My favorite is the one that belonged to my grandma-just because it was hers. 2w
ImperfectCJ Our copy of the tagged is falling apart from so much use. I bought the newest revision to replace it, but I don't like the new one as much. 2w
Bklover @AmyK1 I have one of my mom‘s that I cherish as well!❤️ 2w
wanderinglynn I have very few cookbooks because I don‘t really like cooking. But I love to bake (when I have time) and I‘ve enjoyed 2w
Bklover @ImperfectCJ I‘m going to check that one out! Isn‘t it funny how we like our old cookbooks with the stains and spills and notes in them!? 2w

This book fascinated me. Told as two love stories in two time periods, this is actually the history of Cuba and it‘s politics. I knew little of Cuba, I am embarrassed to admit. I read this book slowly so as to experience the history and trauma of the Cuban people both in Cuba and America. Wonderfully informative! Thanks again to @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @TheBookHippie for sending me this gem!❤️❤️

This was the audiobook that got me through 15 hours of driving today. I think it was the audio that made this book appealing. If I hadn‘t had a voice to go with the main character I think I wouldn‘t have found him sympathetic at all. Thought it was clever and fun, although the ending was a bit rushed. Definitely made my trip easier!
Oh, and as I have had trouble finishing books this summer, at least I can say I finished this one!

CouronneDhiver I‘ve read three of these six and they were all worthwhile - nice picks! 5mo
SaturnDoo I have Golden Hour and A Mother's Reckoning in my TBR, probably should move them up. I read Becoming last year but it isn't a top pick 😟 5mo
Avanders Ooh I also loved Things Fall Apart! And I really have to get on Bird Box!! ♥️ 5mo

I listened to this while driving from southern Mississippi back to Illinois yesterday and it was just what I needed to pass the miles away. So far David Baldacci hasn‘t let me down, and I‘m going to have to check out more of this Amos Decker series.

suzie.reads I think he's great I'm currently on boom 4 of the Will Robie series 5mo

This is a good example of what Litsy has done to me! This book arrived today from Book Depository. I ordered it because I checked. I know that I saw someone‘s post about and had to have it Right Now. But I certainly don‘t remember. Oy.

Reading this and really enjoying it. Science fiction that is alternate history starting in 1952. I haven‘t read much alternate history and it‘s fascinating seeing people and events worked into a new version of the past. Also love the strong female character who is quite relatable because Guess What! She‘s not perfect! Looking forward to the second in this series who many say is even better!

Subterranean | James Rollins
post image

Okay, if no one has any objections I think I‘ll use this one for #LMPBC #GROUPV #round6. I couldn‘t decide between this and Ice Hunt but Subterranean has fewer pages so I chose it. Both are over 400 though, and I want you to know it‘s a mass market paperback so the marking up notes may have to be mostly post-its if there are any objections I‘m happy to keep looking.

Avanders Yay! I‘ve never read anything by Rollins! I‘m cool w whatever format 😉 So excited! 5mo
Bklover @Avanders I haven‘t either, but I‘m excited. I spent FOREVER today at Barnes and Noble looking at all of his books and trying to decide which one to use. I figure the extra pages are ok since they are smaller pages !! 5mo
TK421 I've never read anything by Rollins either. Sounds good to me! 😊 5mo

BethM I love it! The be read two Rollins but in his series that reminds me of Templars. 5mo
Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon @BethM I can‘t wait! 👏🏽👏🏽 5mo
Bklover @MaleficentBookDragon I can pick a different book if you‘ve already read this one. It was on your original post so I thought you hadn‘t read it. ❤️ I have Ice Hunt too so if you‘ve read the other I‘ll just switch. (edited) 5mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Bklover no this one is great. I've read it, but it was so long ago that I want to read it again and see what everyone else thinks. 5mo

Well I FINALLY found a book I like for #CliFi #Booked2019 and I read the whole thing last night and this morning 😊😊😊😊. I had such a hard time finding a book and last night I found this on Litsy while doing a #clifi search. Definitely kept my attention and is a scary look at what could happen.

LibrarianRyan You should try reading his book Unwind. Not Cli-Fi, but another look at what could happen. And it's relevant to what is going on today. crazy good. 5mo
Cinfhen I think I may try your book because I was unsatisfied with my #CliFi pick (edited) 5mo

Bklover @LibrarianRyan I will, Ryan! Thanks! I have Thunderhead on my stack as well. 5mo
Bklover @Cinfhen I couldn‘t get into Gold Fame Citrus either. I just checked another out though by Jasper Fforde called Early Riser that sounds Cli-fi good too. After hunting and hunting now I‘ve found two. Go figure. Hugs to hubs. ❤️❤️❤️ 5mo
Bklover @Book_Fairy_Mary I agree! I haven‘t read them all yet but I‘ve enjoyed all that I‘ve read so far. What‘s your favorite? 5mo

1. One Hundred Years of Solitude. I‘ve reread it twice now, and it gets better each time.
2. Still in jammies. Teal leopard print. I LOVE pajamas!!
3. Definitely Game of Thrones. Don‘t know how I went this long without it!
4. Dobby the Elf comes to mind, but after GOT I rather love dragons.

Bklover @Bookjunkie57 Yes they are! I can‘t tell you how many times I‘ve gone shopping for clothes and come home with pajamas. And grocery shopping at a Walmart almost always ends up with jammies! (They have really soft ones now). (edited) 5mo

1. My dad called me Snickelfritz and Pookytat when I was a child.
2. Tagged. Had fun with this. Googled weird titles and have been laughing the last ten minutes
3. No- I generally find them helpful.
4. VERY. I hate a lousy cover. Or when an author has a whole bunch of books with similar (lovely) covers and then throws in a weird one. Or movie tie- ins. Or those stock photos. Ick.

Misty! You made me so happy it brought tears to my eyes today. I have been an awful correspondent for #litsylove the last couple of months. With graduation and so many other end of the school year obligations I have just been feeling overwhelmed. Your package arrived today and it just made my heart happy. I have been wanting this book, but haven‘t bought it because the paperback cover is just hideous so it‘s just PERFECT! All my love❤️

I don‘t know what possesses me to read these books that I call “disease books”. They scare me to death. This is a terrifying account of a woman fighting for life against a tiny not-that-rare bacteria. It was fascinating and very detailed but I‘m glad it‘s over.

Amiable Ha! I‘m so happy to see that someone else shares my fascination with what my husband calls my “disease-of-the-month “ book club. 😀 6mo
