I went into this #LitsyToB read with low expectations after so many meh reviews, but I really liked this one. While friend Emily was grating, she reminded me of the complicated friendships that can come along at that age. I am a sucker for intergenerational friendships, so I loved Lucy. Overall, I appreciated this quiet story that sunk into my heart.

JamieArc Also, is the photo on the cover supposed to be Em and Emily? Or Em‘s mom and Lucy? Because it should be Em‘s mom and Lucy since that photo was referenced several times in the story. 3w
BarbaraBB I can‘t even remember that photo… 🤦🏻‍♀️ 3w
JamieArc @BarbaraBB In the book, she finds a photo of her mom and Lucy. The photo had to do with the two women sharing a moment after the abortion. Lucy told Emily that she was the one who had an abortion but Emily found out later it was her mother. Hope that rings a bell! 3w
BarbaraBB Yes it does! Thank you for clearing that up 🤍 3w
squirrelbrain Glad you liked it! ❤️ 3w

I think I may have liked this a little more than others for this #nunlit read, but I did enjoy reading the story of contemporary renegade nuns and their badassery. It was a little hard to keep going in the beginning because of all of the abuse and cruelty, but once the plot got going, it was easy to root for these women. Moments of heart and goodness helped me stick with it, as well as a few snortable lines from unexpected characters.

jlhammar Snortable lines 😆 Glad you enjoyed it! I‘m excited to start this one soon 3w

Tonight‘s #hyggehour involved listening to my husband read from the tagged book. We meant to make a fire in the fireplace, but that didn‘t happen so a YouTube fire it was 😂. I just started a new job last week, so an hour of calm on Sunday nights is perfect before starting another busy week.

No Two Persons: A Novel | Erica Bauermeister

This book 😍 I have been wanting to read it since it was published and I‘m so glad #ALSpine finally got me to. This is my favorite form of writing: one novel made up of short stories that connect. It worked so well. I was equally intrigued by all characters and wondering how the story would weave kept me from putting it down. Another #ALS book to probably make my top of the year. I‘m just going to stick to #ALS books to ensure great reads!

JamieArc I also loved how this story came full circle. We saw how Alice‘s story impacted people, and at the very end, when Alice saw the wings made of book pages, and THIS is what finally inspired her to think of a new story - so brilliant that it ended with Alice being inspired by her own book, unbeknownst to her! 2mo
yourfavouritemixtape So glad you liked it! I think it‘s my top book from last year. And I still think about some of the stories even now. 2mo
JamieArc @yourfavouritemixtape This one snuck into my heart. I have a feeling I‘ll be thinking about it for a long time. 1mo

For the second year in a row, #AuldLangSpine has given me my first 5⭐️ read. This is the story of Ozge, a girl growing up in Turkey, and the struggle to live up to expectations while figuring out who you are and what you want for your own life. I do love a good graphic novel memoir, and this is just that. I learned a lot about Turkey, and the art was great as well. Well -timed too as I‘m about to start a new job that makes me feel like ⬇️⬇️

@yourfavouritemixtape #AuldLangSpine list. Despite being short, it is great! I‘ve only read To Kill a Mockingbird, but that was many years ago so I may revisit it. Tomorrow has been on so many of my BookSpin lists, but for some reason never got to reading it, so I was really excited to see it. I will be reading that first since I own it. No Two Person is also one I have been wanting to read. More below ⬇️

JamieArc Except for Eels, the others were not titles I recognized but they all look really interesting. I may have ordered all except for Tomorrow and TKAM - happy early birthday to me 😂 I plan on reading 2 or 3 from this list in January, and the others throughout the year. 2mo

Hi, Anna! So nice to meet you! A little about me in the spirit of #AuldLangSpine. I turn 41 on January 7 😱. I‘m married with a fur baby - an English Pointer named Birdie that we got from a rescue at the start of the pandemic. I work for the College of Education at our local university but am about to start a new job at a different university as the Associate Director of Accreditation - a move I‘m very excited about! More ⬇️

JamieArc My dream job would be a book historian though. My degree is in French. I have lived in France and Haiti and until recently, was teaching French to adults and loved it! I keep having the goal to read a book in French, so please send recommendations my way! 2mo
JamieArc I spent a weekend in Geneva, Switzerland, and despite being a short trip, it was very memorable! My reading is all over the place as well. I like how diverse your list is, and am very much looking forward to reading them! 2mo

yourfavouritemixtape Hiii!! Glad I am getting to know you! I am already thinking about which book I could recommend you to read in French! I have read a lot of them in school. I think one of the last ones I tried was Jules Verne. But I gave up after a quarter any switched to German 🙃 2mo

steph_phanie Hi! I have been thinking of gifting this to my bonus mom for her bday, but saw a review that mentioned it had a bunch of religious content. However, the review was unclear in what way. Do you mind commenting on that? 4mo
JamieArc @steph_phanie Hi! Your comment scared me because as an ex-vangelical I would be pretty sensitive to that, so I scoured the book for any religious content. There are short chapters that begin with “A Praise Song for…” but all have to do with nature. I could only find one reference to Song of Solomon that had to do with flowers. So no, no religious content! All about nature with lots of literary references. (edited) 4mo

I didn‘t like this as much as Cackle. It felt a little less “fun.” But I did still enjoy it. It was an interesting way to think about women‘s bodies and our control or lack of with them, through the MC turning I to a werewolf and her pregnant twin sister. We also watch the MC work through trauma as she figures out her transformation. Some parts do require a strong stomach.

Autumn in Michigan is glorious! The trees are stunning, with many trails to walk to enjoy them, roads to drive to see them (the famous Tunnel of Trees), cider mills galore, and fall events like the annual Witches on the Town.
