I‘m starting to love Backman‘s writing! Interesting perspective with a diverse cast of characters and a good story. Also, heart wrenching at times, but still amazing.

This wasn‘t quite what I expected when I heard it described as James Bond with wizards. But, I liked it even more that way. The magic was more subtle and I had great fun with the characters and the story!

I‘ve been looking forward to #sffs opening day ever since the box arrived and I was not disappointed! Thanks @Ingerella ! I cannot wait to start both of these books. (Especially the tagged one, I love books set in Russia/northern Europe!) The other goodies are also awesome. The socks fit perfectly in my collection of novelty socks, and you‘re right, you can never go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate! Thanks @Avanders for hosting!

My boyfriend and I broke up this week after 4 years together. I‘m pretty crushed by it so I‘m spending Friday night cuddling with Kevin the giant squid. Also taking suggestions on how to feel not so upset about it (the breakup, not Kevin).

About to start my first Stephen King novel. My supervising attorney loves just about everything King has ever written, but I‘ve never read anything by him because I‘m not a fan of horror. I know there‘s a Hulu series out there, but I wanted to read the book before I watched it.

I definitely recommend this! It was such a beautiful story about family, love, and grief. Zusak really has a talent for writing, characters, and world building. I will definitely continue to read whatever he writes. While I didn‘t like this quite as much as The Book Thief (it was very close), I still highly recommend it! Also, there are parts of this that I found really emotionally devastating so be prepared.

4. Camping (but not on the beach itself because of sand 😐)
5. This is the first book I thought of. Absolutely loved it as a kid and made me want my own falcon.

Finished this on my cold weather-induced day off. I loved it!! Such a great setting. I thought the author nailed the fandom/fanfiction/fan convention portion of this perfectly. Additionally, I thought it had a great be-comfortable-with-yourself aspect/message that really resonated with how unsure I felt about myself in high school.

Does snowshoeing count for #litsywalkers if I‘m listening to an audiobook while doing it?

Madison has a huge and wonderful arboretum where the hiking trails double as cross-country ski/snowshoe trails in the winter.

I‘m really loving the Murderbot series and started on the next one as soon as I finished this one. I really like that even though there‘s a larger story arc, each book is its own self-contained story. I also really like that each book in the series seems to pack a lot of plot into ~150 pages making them great quick reads.
