"Maybe that was the thing no one really knew how to prepare for, that your life might ultimately depend on how quickly you could switch from seeing the shooter as the person who sat two seats away from you in history-the person who offered you a stick of gum-seeing them as the person who might kill you. " - wow ? was not expecting that from this book about a mysterious relationship between teen twins. Too true though ☹️

Mother, Mother: A Novel | Koren Zailckas

I'm getting some major Lucille and Buster Bluth vibes from this book but only if their storyline got really dark and disturbing.

"...troubled boys, the kind who'd met their last girlfriends in a psych ward or wrote poems calling me 'sweet' but spelled it like 'sweat'."
I relate to so much Mara is saying but that line made me laugh so hard. A boy wrote that in my yearbook saying I was "so sweat". I was embarrassed thinking this poor boy while also thinking nooo this is going to be in my yearbook forever!!!!

KateFulfordAuthor If you need another recommendation, may I point you to my debut? Sassy female narrative, laugh out dialogue and a pacy plot. Check the link in the bio for 2 free chapters, reviews and more. 2y

Thought I should post this book after being featured in the latest Annotated Book Riot podcast. Went to Wizard Con, thought it would be fun to get my picture taken with Thomas Ian Nicholas, and my husband ended up buying this too (he had no idea of the history behind this book and bought it because he knew I liked books). Both Lani and Thomas signed it and we all had an awkward conversation (to me) about the book. Weird times at Wizard Con!

A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara
post image

This article from Buzzfeed is interesting. Definitely think that the UK cover of A Little Life is better than the one I have while The Girl on the Train has very little difference in book covers.

SarahKay I hate the US cover of A Little Life with a passion. I learned from an interview that the author picked that cover herself and insisted on it despite the publisher's reservations. 3y
Dooplum @SarahKay Agreed. I really dislike the US cover as well and feel like there had to be a better option. 3y

"Typing machines belonged to women and computers to men. So asking an executive to sit at a keyboard was like expecting him to cook a pot roast" ? Crazy to think that this is how men regarded one of the first consumer marketed computers.

BooksTeasAndBookishThings Wow. I used to follow a page on FB that would do a lot of posts about actual advertisements/pamphlets in the past and one was how to be a good Wife... You wouldn't believe what they expected. It also had how to be a good Husband, and it said, no joke, that if all else fails: spank her. "She will appreciate your firm hand in guiding her. After all, your job is to make sure she does her job." 3y
Dooplum @BooksTeasAndBookishThings 😦 What?! That is absolute craziness! 3y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings Right?? I wish I could remember what the page was, but when the new FB settings happened and it basically cut off over half of your feed, I didn't realize they weren't showing up anymore and now I can't remember what their page was called. Something about wisdom from the past... I don't know, but I bet there is some place dedicated online to all of those old "how to" pamphlets. 3y

Dooplum @BookishMarginalia Of course!!! 3y
RadicalReader @Dooplum what has been your favorite book that you would recommend for a good read for 2017? 3y
Dooplum @RadicalReader Oh that's a tough one! My favorite book so far would probably be You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott. It was a delightful read. 3y

I have to say that this volume is probably my favorite so far out of this series. I really enjoyed it but the ending made me so incredibly angry. Beware readers because this graphic novel gets really dark really quick.

This graphic novel based on a true incident is absolutely amazing. After the writer is physically and mentally destroyed by a mugging, he is brought down and then brought up by the animated characters he helps create.

I know I'm a little late for all the bookmark fun but I had to post my fave bookmark. Working at a used bookstore means finding lots of great bookmarks like this gem! Make sure though that you check your books before you sell them. I've found lots of lost family photos 😕

MrBook Excellent advice! 4y

After reading this, I've wondered why I don't read more things like this. Absolutely wonderful and worth reading especially the story titled "Dead Doormen" which was my fave!

I just attempted my own reenactment of some scenes in this book with my dogs, realized I'm completely out of shape and my dogs not really on board with this, but while still feeling empowered anyway! Superpowered, kick-ass girl style!

Dooplum @shawnmooney my significant other can vouch for me. He may have had no idea what I was doing at the time but can that count? 😄 4y

I really enjoyed this title. Talk about reading something right at the right time. It had a cheesy romance about it that I was completely expecting but who doesn't want a little romance (and to be honest a little cheese) every once in a while?❤️🧀

Texasblues I picked this up at the used book store - I'm really looking forward to it! 4y
[DELETED] 1409720085 I thought this was really fun. Plus I love the author's blog. 4y

Books generally don't scare me but I have to say, this one legit did. Right at a pivotal point in the story my bf's phone rang and I jumped straight up. I had to give myself a minute or two for my heart to resume normal beats before I dove back in.
