Shining | Stephen King

Holy Cannoli, what a book!!! Every SK book I read I say “this is my favorite of his.” Lol I really, really enjoyed this one. The whole trip...satisfying ending. 4.5⭐️My fave character was Hallorann. Good guy. Love the whole “shining” ability- mental telepathy and precognition. Don‘t get me wrong, parts were scary as all get out, but loved it. 1977.

I spazzed out and missed the confetti. This month was a bit difficult, but I went with this narrative nonfiction (tbh, I don‘t even know what that means). I‘m hoping it doesn‘t freak me out too much.....ok, just looked it up...narrative nonfiction is a “literary term for a text that presents a true story written in a style more closely associated with fiction” ok, cool, this is good for Nonfiction November🍂

YA Paranormal thriller along two time lines 1948 and I‘m guessing around 2008. 191 pages. Quick read. I love this cover..it was definitely what drew me to the book. Xena is unimpressed. Lol 3⭐️

Dot in the Universe | Lucy Ellmann

Mehso-so

By same author as Ducks, Newburyport. I figured at 199 pages, I‘d start with a lesser commitment. I don‘t even know where to begin with this one. I wish there were other reviews on Litsy for this. It was a totally bizarre story of MC Dot‘s sad life, and the strangeness of society. There were MANY truisms and LOTS of capitalized words. In the beginning I almost BAILED, then it grew on me bc it was increasingly ODD and I was intrigued.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Maybe closer to a PICK...I‘m totally up in the air on this one. 3w

JanuarieTimewalker13 @Texreader He admits it‘s his scariest book and he almost didn‘t publish it. It‘s in the introduction of my 2018 copy (Litsy didn‘t have exact copy I read-same cover but not same book). He‘s written such great stuff, could never give up on him. Try 11/22/63, that‘s not scary. Great read. 1mo

This book was...different. Very well written, enjoyable, but a bit strange. 3.5⭐️ set in 2001 and the 16th century. Cameo appearance by Shakespeare. Protagonist time travels via her dreams and each time she comes back, her real time existence is altered, leading others to believe she is mentally ill.

Goofy, but cute. 3⭐️. Some chuckles, a vampire from the Bronx, (he was fun) and the first time I‘ve ever read of a werebear. A nice little tour of Venice, and a little mystery, with “malcontent” vamps abducting mortals and brainwashing them.

Geography of Lost Things | Jessica Brody

Pleasantly surprised with the way this fleshed out. I‘m 4 decades out of the demographic for this one, so the teen romance drama was a bit annoying, yet this is what I loved about the book: the road trip which brought me through NoCal, Oregon, and Washington, the side characters, the up-trading on Craig‘s List and of course, the ‘68 Firebird Convertible with stick shift. This started out a 2.5 for me and ended at 3.75🚙

Sorry about my foot, it‘s been a bad hip spell. Dean Martin on my lap modeling with current read.It‘s slow, but so am I. I‘m digging the ‘68 convertible Firebird, but all the ex boyfriend angst is getting tiresome. I‘m sticking with this one bc it‘s a road trip in Northern Cal. Always up my alley🏔

ValerieAndBooks I might just have to pick this one up! Being a NorCal native and a veteran of many coastal road trips there! 3mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @ValerieAndBooks it‘s a little heavy on teen angst, but I am enjoying the Russellville, Fort Bragg, Garberville, etc road trip to Crescent City. A little circuitous due to unforeseen obstacles. These areas are unfamiliar to me, but I have done the Reno-San Fran road trip, which was fun, but different from this. 3mo

ValerieAndBooks Oh, I am totally familiar with that route! We lived in the Sacramento area when I was growing up and our extended family all lived up there not far from Crescent City.

I‘m really enjoying this book, although, I‘m finding historical inconsistencies-e.g. there was no NYPresbyterian in the 60s. Columbia Presbyterian and NY Hospital were separate entities until sometime in the 90s, or early aughts, can‘t remember, precisely. Still, Im enjoying Ana‘s story.

Bailedbailed

Almost 1/2 way in, and I know this is an unpopular opinion, but to me, this book is thoroughly overhyped and meh.
Maybe it‘s an age related bail, probably better for 20 somethings.

petersonks15 If I hadn‘t been reading it for a book Club I would have bailed. It was a cute romance overall, but a struggle to get through, felt way too long imo. 4mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @petersonks15 I just could not connect. The only one I semi liked was Henry. I found the book pretty boring. Unless the best part was the 2nd half? 4mo
petersonks15 It did get better, but still dragged in my opinion. Maybe it was just too hyped and my expectations weren‘t in the right place. 🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 4mo

TheHeartlandBookFairy I thought the first 30% was good and I loved the last 30%! But the middle 40% could have been told in a fraction of the pages used. It was just more of the same and I nearly bailed. In the end I'm glad I didn't bail, that last 30% made up for it but that middle was a struggle bus for me as well 😝 4mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @TheHeartlandBookFairy Oh well, I wasn‘t wowed by the beginning, but it‘s all good!! Im glad the end was good! Maybe if a film is made I‘ll see it (on dvd from the library, lol) 4mo

JanuarieTimewalker13 @Cinfhen ok, great!! I liked this book, it‘s weird bc I went to Floral Park Memorial HS...and Kate and Peter live in Floral Park...knew the Carvel Anne spoke of. First time I‘ve ever seen my zip code in a book. I was from the next town over, but we shared the Floral Park zip. 5mo
Cinfhen That‘s so weird!! Is Floral Park considered Long Island or Queens??? 5mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Cinfhen It‘s both. I think the Queens side is called Floral Park Manor. I was on Nassau side, in Bellerose. Back in the day, I would walk up the block, cross over Jericho Turnpike/Jamaica Avenue to call my boyfriend in Howard Beach so it wouldn‘t be A long distance call...hahahaha...that‘s back in the 80s. My mother didn‘t want high long distance bills. Queens is on Long Island, so is Brooklyn, but they are boroughs of NYC. 5mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 When people say Long Island, they mean Nassau and Suffolk counties. Where I lived was so close to Queens, as I got older, I just said I was from Queens and my cool factor went up...hahahaha....at least in my mind. 5mo
Cinfhen My husband grew up in Far Rockaway, which is technically Queens but he went to school 10 minutes down the road and it was considered Nassau. And all his school friends lived in Woodmere, Cederhurst & Lawrence ( where his parents eventually moved) but after he graduated HS. 5mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Cinfhen Did he go to a private school? Otherwise, he must have used someone else‘s address. Nassau school tax is high. I know for a fact there were some kids from Queens in my HS. The parents would‘ve had a fit if they knew, bc our parents paid through the nose, tax wise. But maybe there were special circumstances in Far Rockaway. I have no clue. But I had a couple of friends from Cedarhurst and Lawrence. Not all that far from Floral Park. 5mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 There was great confusion in the early days when my side of Bellerose (Nassau) had a Queens ZIP....they changed that in early 80s. It‘s a very blurry line there...but funny that one side is Jericho Turnpike (Nassau) and the same street on Queens Side is Jamaica Avenue. The Nassau people always call it Jericho and the Queens people call it Jamaica. (edited) 5mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I got my Queens schooling at St John‘s U...lol...hence the boyfriend from HB. It was fun, very diverse, yet separate in those days. Now things are diverse and together...which is SO much better! 5mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 But of course, the fact that it‘s not just a commuter college anymore, brings people together. Back in the 80s, it was strictly commuter. 5mo
Cinfhen Yes, he went to a private school ( Jewish Day School & HS) He went to Baruch for collage and Hofstra for law school. He‘s a total New Yorker!! We met & started dating on a gap year program in Israel between graduating HS & starting college. I was at NYU, while he went to Baruch. Such a small world ( also the 80‘s) we graduated HS 1984 5mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Cinfhen It IS a small world!!! Ooooh, NYU!! Awesome!! Baruch is a GREAT business school!! Hofstra Law, wow!! Ok, I graduated SJU in ‘84. Ok, this is embarrassing, but I knew that was the school for me bc I was Queens boy-crazy.....hahahaha...they were “cooler” than the LI boys (in my head). My mother wanted me to go to Adelphi, but I was like, “no way, lady”. I‘ve had enough of Long Island. LOL...Kids! (edited) 5mo
Cinfhen That‘s really funny!!! Queens boys were totally cooler than LI boys!!! More “dangerous” 😂😂😉Half of NYU were either city boys or LI boys!! And the other half were gay😜 5mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Cinfhen No doubt, but you still had it better than my friend who went to FIT😀she actually believed her boyfriend from there was straight, and everyone was like “no girl, you have to open your eyes” lol denial. It was a different time. If you were hunting Queens and Brooklyn boys back in the day, SJU was the place. It was just guaranteed there would be a baseball bat on the floor of the back seat. Which intimidated me a bit. Lol 5mo

JanuarieTimewalker13 I read about her years back, but I must refresh myself. I remember a big swim. We have a park with flowers and it‘s dedicated to her🌸 @readingjedi (edited) 5mo

I have to bail. 80 pages in and it‘s as bad as doing a 12 hour shift at the Wall. Lol To me, this book is like watching paint dry.

JanuarieTimewalker13 I realize this may be a bit harsh, my hemoglobin is low and I‘m like Edward before the hunt, but I still stand by it, maybe not as bad as watching paint dry, that is extreme, but let‘s say the book wasn‘t for me. 5mo

Beautiful day to start this one. So far on p36 and I‘m hoping it takes off soon, bc It‘s a bit of a slug right now🤞🏽

Hahahaha...such a blast from the past I had to take a photo. I find it interesting that 3 out of 3 of the people who took out this book were men, a book about a female detective.
38 years ago. Wow!
