Love seeing my name in print :) But Eliza sounds like she was awful. Oh Roman, I wouldn‘t do that to you ❤️

So I‘m almost half way through and I don‘t understand how she can not know he is a vampire! I mean come on!!!! She can‘t be naive. Like ... vampires are a part of the world so it‘s not like she doesn‘t know vampires exist!!!!

Darklunarose Agreed! Very naive! 17h

So I read it and listened to it (I try to do that sometimes so that I can pick up where I left off in my commute) anyway, it‘s counting as a audiobook (even if it was about half) #BookishBingo

Mehso-so

So I liked it for the most part. It was difficult at times because I couldn‘t remember who I was at times. But I did like how it all came together in the end. (Wish there was a level between “pick” and “so-so”)

#StoryBookSunday : so this was one of my favorites as a child. I used to write all sorts of “clues” about strangers and do the thing where you make up stories about what people might be up to. I think it‘s helped me become more inquisitive and observant as an adult

So I‘m gonna start this one today (it‘s cold out and I am gonna stay in bed under my weighted blanket). ❤️ also I downloaded it from Libby as an audio book so when I do my cleaning chores I can pick up where I left off :)

LiteraryinLititz I found this one really cool, but you have to pay attention because it can be hard to follow. Hope you love it! 1w
ElizaMarie @LiteraryinLititz I have heard such great things. So I am interested in giving it a try. Also heard that was why people didn't like it. That it got hard to follow at times. 1w

I really didn‘t like Margo. I didn‘t enjoy the “ride” enough to say I enjoyed the book. I‘ve read others by John Green and enjoyed it... but this one I couldn‘t get into or really enjoy. Hmm now considering if it‘s worth watching the movie...

#NovelWatchingCrew (#NWC)
@AkashaVampie , @AnansiGirl

AkashaVampie aww im sorry you didn't like the book. Maybe the movie will be better for u! 1w
ElizaMarie @AkashaVampie Haha its okay. I think other people were saying how much the liked to so.. It seems like its one of those “not for everyone“ types of stories.

I can't find an easy way to stream it. So I might end up renting it from YouTube? Maybe I don't know if I will watch it actually. If its super similar to the book I doubt I would enjoy it
1w
AkashaVampie @ElizaMarie have you checked out the trailer for the movie? Maybe try that first. I can look around to find the cheapest way for u to watch it. 1w
ElizaMarie @AkashaVampie yeah I saw the trailer. Didn't look bad or anything. But didn't draw me in too much. I will look around to see if I can watch it though. I mean it did peak an interest 1w

ElizaMarie @LoverOfLearning actually I‘m glad I‘m trying. You are so right about expanding. I wouldn‘t have read the one written by a Native American if it were not for this bingo (I really enjoyed it) 2w
LoverOfLearning @ElizaMarie Fantastic! What was it called? 2w
ElizaMarie @LoverofLearning it was a audible original but I had picked it specifically because of the author‘s ethnicity. It was very well done. Reminded me of a podcast with interviews and trials and stuff (edited) 2w

So I‘m glad I took a chance on this #BigLibraryRead book. I would have liked it a bit longer so I can get to have more of a background on the characters lives and struggles. But... overall good. Also loved it as an audio because it helped to listen to the wording/accents and what not :)

#StoryBookSunday - so.. I know super unpopular opinion here but... I mean it was okay. I kinda see how it is taught in schools but I think there are other books out there that would be more entertaining for the youth ...

LoverOfLearning I have my school copy sitting on my shelf. It's full of my notes and underlinings. This book is my next to read because I want to rediscover why it was so important for youth to study. I hope I still enjoy it. 😂😬 2w
jb72 I am actually rereading the book today for bookclub tomorrow. It‘s a definite pick for me. 2w
ElizaMarie @LoverOfLearning I mean I can get why it was read (actually I didn‘t have to read it in school) but I just only somewhat enjoyed it. I hear of people just loving this one. 2w

ElizaMarie @jb72 ha! Proves my opinion is super unpopular! Did you read the Watchman sequel? (I think it‘s called something like that) .. 2w
LoverOfLearning @ElizaMarie Hmm. Yeah it's been years for me. I have most of my old books sitting on my shelf with notes; The Odessy, Of Mice and Men, and a few more. 2w
jb72 @ElizaMarie No I did not. I‘ve heard it‘s not very good so I skipped it. 2w

This one isn‘t on the list (I might try to add it tonight on the website but... using this as my commute book :)

Kimberlone James Dommek is a fairly well known (in AK) Native Alaskan activist. I picked this from Audible this month too but haven‘t started listening to it yet 2w
ElizaMarie @kimberlone I am about halfway through and it‘s super interesting. He reads it himself. (Were you able to add it as a book?) 2w
Kimberlone @ElizaMarie I haven‘t tried on Litsy since I haven‘t started it yet. Probably because it‘s an audible original (and not published in hard copy) that‘s why it‘s now showing in the Litsy database 2w
ElizaMarie @kinberlone : I was able to add another audible original before but I think because I‘m using the app instead it isn‘t allowing me to 2w

AkashaVampie U do virtual dates. That sounds interesting! 2w
ElizaMarie @AkashaVampie so since I am currently on a work contract away from home (but this one is close enough we visit more — usually we don‘t) We do virtual dates where we watch the same movie and the same time (in different cities) together 2w
AkashaVampie @ElizaMarie thats cool!!! so u text back and forth?
2w
ElizaMarie @AkashaVampie when we go to the actual theatre we just text before and then call each other after to discuss. But we also stream movies together and those we will talk/text/FaceTime throughout. 2w
AkashaVampie @ElizaMarie that is awesome! 2w
