I've somehow got more followers in the month I've been away from litsy, than the two months previous when I was active.
Anyway, weird thing aside, I finished listening to this and I love it

LaLecture This happened to me too 😂. I find that quite weird as I would usually not follow someone who hasn‘t posted in weeks 🤔. 8mo
EllanaRose @LaLecture - I'm usually pretty active, but yea, it is a bit odd 8mo

I'm in a huge amount of pain, so I'm reading something easy

cobwebmoth I hope the pain eases up soon. 9mo
mcipher I hope you feel better soon! 9mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I hope you get some relief soon! 9mo
BookNAround That doesn‘t sound good. I hope the book(s) take your mind off of the pain at least a little. 9mo

Not going to lie, I thought this was the Guernsey series set just after WW2, but oh well. So far so good, I just need to read and enjoy it in its own right, rather than my mistake

I like knowing the locations and settings, but I can't bear the male gaze. Every woman is attractive or, to quote the book, a "terrifying lesbian" and that doesn't sit well with me.
I doubt I'll be continuing the series

CoffeeK8 I agree so much! It was such a creative world, and I loved that the main character was a person of color, but his gaze was terrible! 9mo
EllanaRose @CoffeeK8 - I'm so glad you agreed! I've had friends say that it wasn't bad but ugh. Thank you for agreeing and seeing the same thing I did 9mo

Continuing to read this... I'm not a fan of the male gaze, but so far I like the plot and I love knowing the locations so well I can say I've visited almost every place mentioned so far. Not bad considering I'm mostly house bound

I've never read a book written by an author that is local to me, so since a friend suggested I read this I thought I'd make the effort.
Admittedly I'm not sure if the book I'm tagging is the right one, since this is also a comic series, but eh whatever

chaoticgoodhufflepuff Oh! I love this series so much! The audiobook narrator is just fantastic! ❤️❤️ 9mo
EllanaRose @blamethestardust - I might have to check it out, thanks! 9mo

I'm really enjoying this, and if I'm honest I'm not even sure why. I barely have a grasp of the plot, the characters are mostly enigmatic, but I just love it

readordierachel Such a great book ❤ And the sequels are fantastic as well. 11mo
EllanaRose @readordierachel - I've already started the second. Oh lovey! I cried more than I was expecting, but the events of the sequel? Oh my 11mo

Last year I read 66 books and more than 25,000 pages.
2019 goal is to hit 25,000 pages again so I better get going.
I also have started this cute shawl so yay for that

taraWritesSci Pretty pattern! 11mo
EllanaRose @taraWritesSci - Thanks! My friend gifted me the pattern and I just had to make it! 11mo
Jeannie Congrats on the 25,000 pages! I was trying to hit 20,000 but only did 18,500 - almost made it! 11mo
EllanaRose @Jeanie - Aw so close! I think page count goals are much harder to hit than book count goals. With book count you can read short books to bump the numbers easily; you can't do that with page counts. Go you for reading all those pages! 11mo

This was nothing groundbreaking, but I enjoyed it. Mosse does French historical fiction well and brings the large scale dramas to a small family scale.

melbeautyandbooks Nice stitching! I am also a cross stitcher. I just started about 4 or 5 months ago. Sometimes, I listen to audiobooks while I stitch. I have learned a lot about stitching thanks to Flosstube. 14mo

EllanaRose @melbeautyandbooks - I've been stitching for a decade, started when I was getting stressed about college. I love it. I struggle with audio stitching, I find one of the two ends up getting ignored, so I just watch my favourite shows on Netflix. Yay you for being able to do that though! 14mo
melbeautyandbooks @EllanaRose Yes it is a good stress reliever. I only listen to really easy stuff like cozy mysteries. I also watch TV and stitch with me videos on Flosstube. Looking forward to seeing your finished piece! 14mo
