The Hobbit | J.R.R. Tolkien

I've made a terrible mistake. I decided to reread The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, and Silmarillion. The mistake is that I started reading it out loud to Bastet. She enjoyed it (for whatever reason) and now every time I reach for it, she sits down with me for me to continue. She's a bossy thing. #readingaloud #readingtomycat #Tolkienfankitty

I didn't complete the whole 24hours for #24in48 but I was able to pass the halfway mark. I completed War by Laura Thalassa and got halfway through Stranger Than Fanfiction by Chris Colfer and The Undying King by Grace Draven. I was also able to start and decide to Chuck 3 other books I'd hadliw expectations for.

@Kenziejo and I have decided we're booking a weekend at Ravenwood Castle next time. 😂😂😂

Got off to a bumpy start Saturday so I probably won't be making 24 hours. I'm shooting for 12 now. Possibly 16.

I'm nearly done with the tagged book and have also been listening to Stranger Than Fanfiction by Chris Colfer, which is a lot of fun so far.

Pelican71 Would it be easier to have the same genres in common? I like the idea 💡. I‘m pondering 🤔. 2y

CoveredInRust @Pelican71 this was our convo from before: http://litsy.com/p/WEl5Vjc2QWFO if you want to read what we had to suggest for the group. Avid is the one who left. 2y
See All 80 Comments
CoveredInRust @Pelican71 What genres we're you thinking? Is there anything you definitely don't want to read? Do you want to try stay away from rereads or are you okay with them? 2y
JamieArc Yay! Welcome @Pelican71 ! Thanks for joining us! 2y
Pelican71 Thank you. I usually don‘t read romance or sci-fi/fantasy but if it has a good plot I‘m good to go. I usually read mystery/thrillers and literary fiction. @JamieArc @mcipher @CoveredInRust I‘m going to look for y‘all on Goodreads to check out your shelves. I‘m https://www.goodreads.com/Pelican71
2y
Pelican71 Also, please let me know where I fall in the rotation or if I forgot anything else. 2y
CoveredInRust @Pelican71 Unless we're going with the order that our names are in the email, I don't think we've confirmed the rotation yet. ☺ Don't forget to chose a pen/highlighter color 😀 we've each got orange, purple, and blue so far I believe. How do you feel about poetry? I think someone wants to use a book of poetry she has... 2y
CoveredInRust @Pelican71 The book I chose I think might have fantasy elements? Folklore/myth elements? I'm not sure. It may change. 2y
CoveredInRust @Pelican71 Also, how do you feel about non-fiction? 2y
JamieArc @Pelican71 I just added you on GoodReads 2y
Pelican71 @CoveredInRust I‘d like to read more non-fiction. Would pink pen/highlighter bother anyone? If so I can go the black pen/yellow highlighter route. 2y
CoveredInRust @Pelican71 pink is fine to me. ☺ 2y
mcipher @Pelican71 Welcome! Excited to have you! 👍I love pink so I‘m glad you picked it. 😊 2y
mcipher @JamieArc @CoveredInRust @Pelican71 So we need to all pick out books (which we‘re keeping as surprises!), start reading, and figure out the rotation - but we have colors selected, right? Priorities... 😝 2y
Pelican71 Sounds good. I‘m trying to decide if I should read something old or something new 😬. FYI I don‘t believe I have any triggers. Anyone else? 2y
CoveredInRust @mcipher Highlighters and pens are very important 😂 2y
CoveredInRust @Pelican71 It is a difficult decision, yes. 😃 I would appreciate being warned about any graphic rape in the books. I'll still read it, but just an FYI. ☺ 2y
mcipher @Pelican71 I‘m not a fan of bad things happening to kids or animals, especially sexual abuse stuff. But I‘ll read anything, even those things, if it‘s a good book. 2y
JamieArc No trigger warnings needed here. I'll be sure to mark if I come across any of those things since I'll be reading a new book. I've narrowed my choices down. Excited to see what comes my way from you all 😊 2y
CoveredInRust @JamieArc I'm excited, too! This is such a fun idea! 😄 2y
Pelican71 I‘ll do the same @JamieArc I do like this idea and the fact that you‘ll get your book back in about 4 months. I still don‘t know what I‘ll choose. Mainstream vs a hidden gem, old versus new. 2y
mcipher @Pelican71 @JamieArc @CoveredInRust Did you guys all pick your books? I‘m still deciding...🤷‍♀️ 2y
CoveredInRust @mcipher I've decided 95% of the way... There's another book that's eyeing me but it probably won't win. 2y
JamieArc @mcipher Same as @CoveredInRust Mostly decided. Will know for sure when i start reading this week. 😊 2y
Pelican71 I‘m pretty sure that I know what I‘m going to go with 😬. @JamieArc @CoveredInRust @mcipher 2y
CoveredInRust @Pelican71 @JamieArc @mcipher I've decided what book I'm going with. There's just one thing. This happens to be a text I once read for class so there are several places where I've already written in black pen (not much, I was a big fan of sticky notes). Will that bother anyone? I'll still make my other comments in purple. 2y
JamieArc Not at all @CoveredInRust ! 2y
Pelican71 Has anyone received the email about who we mail our book to at the end of the month? @JamieArc @mcipher @CoveredInRust 2y
CoveredInRust @Pelican71 A list of our group was mailed to us only. I think we figure out who we send to on our own. It'll always be to the same person, at least. 2y
mcipher @CoveredInRust @Pelican71 @JamieArc Did we ever figure out who is mailing to who? How are you guys doing on your books? 😊 2y
Pelican71 I haven‘t figured it out @mcipher I don‘t recall receiving an email. 2y
mcipher @Pelican71 I know I got one (just checked) - I can forward if you don‘t have it, let me know. I guess if we just go in order of the list? @JamieArc @CoveredInRust I mail to Jamie, Jamie to Jessica, Jessica to Felicia, Felicia to me. Does that work? (edited) 2y
CoveredInRust Wow. Sorry I'm late to replying. That works for me! @mcipher @JamieArc @Pelican71 2y

JamieArc I have that email as well and am good with that order! 2y
mcipher @Pelican71 Just sent it over to you! 😊 @CoveredInRust @JamieArc Awesome! So excited to see what we‘ve all picked. Are we going to share after we get our first book or try to keep it a surprise for the next person?! 😁 2y
CoveredInRust @mcipher I wouldn't mind keeping them secret the whole time ☺ 2y
Pelican71 I can go either way @mcipher 2y
mcipher @Pelican71 @CoveredInRust I‘m good either way, too. So I️ guess lets try keeping them a surprise? So fun!! 😝 2y

Hey, everyone! I'm so excited for this book club! So what types of books do we want to read? Or possibly what books do we definitely prefer not to read? Any ideas? @mcipher @JamieArc @AvidBookWorm02

JamieArc I think I'm pretty much up for anything, though I'd prefer to stay away from books in a series and trade paperback romances. Should we choose the books or keep them a surprise? Anyone have any triggers we should try to stay away from? 2y
GA_Bookworm07 I normally read romances but im up for mysteries and other different kinds 2y
GA_Bookworm07 Im trying to venture out more reading wise. I dont want to read anything about abuse. So how do we get started? I think i got a few books that i can use since i have a box of books i want to give away. Not all romances. 2y
See All 62 Comments
CoveredInRust @JamieArc Sounds good. I agree with both the series and paperback romances. I was wondering about that, too. On the one hand it would be fun to get surprised by the books, on the other, it runs the risk that we'll get something we've already read. Or do we mind if it's something we've already read? I prefer to know if a book has anything particularly graphic as far as rape is concerned. I'll still read it, I just don't like being blindsided. 2y
CoveredInRust @AvidBookWorm02 I like mysteries, too. I believe the idea is that the book you chose circulates through the group and you get it back in the end with all kinds of notes. So we each chose one and just keep passing around till our own book circles back. 2y
CoveredInRust @AvidBookWorm02 What genres are you interested in trying out? 2y
GA_Bookworm07 @CoveredInRust Im not sure really! Guess im up for anything. 2y
JamieArc @CoveredInRust I was thinking about the surprise aspect and what if I get something I've already read, but then I realized that I never re-read books because my TBR is too long, so maybe it would be good to be forced to re-read something. 2y
CoveredInRust @JamieArc I don't mind rereading, either. @AvidBookWorm02 Do you prefer one way or the other? 2y
JamieArc Do you all use GoodReads (and keep it updated with what you've read)? That might be a good way to not choose a book someone else has read. I'm kind of leaning towards it being a surprise (because I'm imagining the fun of discovering what is coming). 2y
GA_Bookworm07 Ive re-read alot of my books. Like fried green tomatoes, to kill a mockingbo 2y
GA_Bookworm07 Mockingbird*. I need to update my good reads 2y
GA_Bookworm07 I dont know how to find what my good reads id is. Lol. And im up for it being a surprise. 2y
CoveredInRust www.goodreads.com/Covered_In_Rust is mine. 2y
CoveredInRust @AvidBookWorm02 Do you use the app or webpage? 2y
CoveredInRust @AvidBookWorm02 The way I found mine is to select settings --> then Account Settings --> the Profile and it's a few options down. I have an Android so if you have an iPhone it might be different. 2y

GA_Bookworm07 @CoveredInRust Good night for now. Gonna see if i can get lost in my new book. 📖📖📖📚📚 2y
mcipher @CoveredInRust @AvidBookWorm02 @JamieArc Sorry I missed this whole conversation! I‘m up for anything and I don‘t mind re-reads. My Goodreads name is Melanie because I‘m imaginative. 😂 I was thinking about types of books and wondering if this might be a good opportunity to read something I normally wouldn‘t - like a classic or non-fiction. 2y
CoveredInRust @mcipher I was eyeing the non-fic on my shelves. Anything you definitely don't want to read? 2y
mcipher @CoveredInRust I‘m not a huge fan of politics or religion but really NF is uncharted territory for me, I‘m a fiction reader for sure. So anything you like is good and will be a challenging change of pace! 2y
CoveredInRust @mcipher I'm mostly a fiction reader, also. I'm fairly picky about non-fic (I also tend to steer clear of those two), but can oddly handle it better if I AM annotating. I think I've figured out which one I'm choosing. On GR does it say you're from Washington? 2y
mcipher @CoveredInRust No, I‘m from CT - maybe I need to fix something there! Glad you picked one! I still have to look at my shelves but I do have a couple BOTM picks that might be good if we haven‘t all read them yet. 2y
CoveredInRust @mcipher I thought that was what the email said. I was looking at a completely different account. 😀 2y
mcipher @CoveredInRust 😂 👍 2y
JamieArc So are we all just choosing something from our shelf and not saying what it is? I think I definitely have some good options on my shelf to choose from. 2y
JamieArc I just added Laney and Jessica on GoodReads. I think my display name is Jamie Archer (?) 2y
JamieArc And I think I just found @mcipher too 😊 2y
CoveredInRust @JamieArc I'm good with that if everyone else is. ☺ 2y
JamieArc @CoveredInRust @mcipher @AvidBookWorm02 Should we each pick a color to use for highlighting/writing/tabs etc so we know who did it? 2y
mcipher @JamieArc @CoveredInRust @AvidBookWorm02 I like it - let‘s surprise each other! And a color is probably a good idea. 👍 So we just start reading and send our book the next person at the end of November? 2y
CoveredInRust @mcipher @JamieArc @AvidBookWorm02 Yup! What colors do people want? 2y
JamieArc I'll take orange! 2y
CoveredInRust I'll use purple 😃 2y
mcipher I‘ll go with blue because it‘s easy. ☺️ 2y
GA_Bookworm07 Guess i will take black since thats basically all i use unless i find something in a color that wasnt listed above. 2y
GA_Bookworm07 Is it just one book or what? Or do we send a book to each person? 2y
GA_Bookworm07 @mcipher Yea i hate politics and rarely read anything religious unless its devotion books. Im up for amish books tho lol 2y
CoveredInRust @AvidBookWorm02 We each pick a book. We read our own book and make comments in it. We can also introduce ourselves in the front of the books. At the end of November, we each mail our books to the next person. If we go by the list we were emailed, you would send your book to Melanie, Melanie sends her book to Jamie, Jamie sends her book to me, I send my book to you. 2y
CoveredInRust @AvidBookWorm02 We each read and comment in the new book during December and at the end of the month, the books rotate again. It continues until we get our original books back with comments from each member of the group. 😃 2y
GA_Bookworm07 @CoveredInRust sounds pretty cool. What if its a book ive read half of and bailed on it lol. 2y
CoveredInRust @AvidBookWorm02 lol well, as long as you're willing to read it. ☺ 2y
GA_Bookworm07 Most of my books that i love and enjoy i reread but not up for writing in them. Sadly! I do have books i can send that i can skim thru and add notes. 2y
CoveredInRust @AvidBookWorm02 It doesn't need to be a book you've read. The one I chose is new to me. ☺ 2y
mcipher @AvidBookWorm02 I‘m going with something I haven‘t read yet, I think - I want to come at it fresh and with the idea that I‘m writing in it and reading it with that annotation mindset. Like school! I‘m the highlighter queen when I‘m in school. 😂 2y

I'm rage quitting this one. Between the horrible characterization of the overweight characters, the ridiculously stupid dialogue given to the Scottish guy, the southern drawl being explained every time the oldest sister talks and the fact that it's spiraling so far into Soap Opera territory that I just read two chapters about the characters ex-fiance which ended with her finding out both of her sisters slept with the guy after she left... No.

Cold Pressed Murder | Kelly Lane

Getting pretty fed up with this book. There's a character named Precious who is taller and larger than the other women who are all Acceptably Thin. She's a decent person in the story so I'd just assume that she'd just, ya know, be a character. Not so. Where as other characters just get out of a car, Precious throws out "one tree-trunk leg and then the other, before hoisting her big self out of the tiny bucket seats." Con't in comments.

CoveredInRust Then she "lumbered around the front of the Corvette." Later, while eating bread in a restaurant, an Acceptably Thin character "popped it into her mouth" while "Precious nodded, gnawing on a chunk of oil-soaked bread." It's constant in this book. I'm guessing since she's friends with the MC readers are supposed to think that it's funny, but it's just gotten really irritating. Seriously, WTF? 2y

Had to run my Jeep in to have a recall fixed. Audiobooked it there and back with R. L. Stine's A Midsummer Night's Scream. Now I'm home again and back to Georgia. Also, my coffee has a little reminder for everyone. #Deweys24HourReadathon #DFTBA #RATbookdrink #readathon
