I‘ve been trying to get into this all day and I‘m only about 30 pages in! 😬I just can‘t seem to get into it! The formatting is super different and I think that‘s what‘s throwing me off. It doesn‘t have chapters and it switches perspectives but doesn‘t tell you who‘s perspective it‘s from so you have to try and figure it out. I did read at the pool where it was loud and distracting so I‘m hoping that was this issue! Have you read this? Thoughts?

I didn‘t think I could like a book more than Six of Crows but I was wrong! This book was even better I think! I seriously loved it! All the twists and scheming just kept me hooked. The characters are so lovable. This is officially my favorite series!!

Shley9225 Yay! Join the club!! This series is the best 🖤 5mo
Scochrane26 I liked her version of Wonder Woman (warbringer) & have thought about reading her other books. Put it on my tbr 5mo

Oh my gosh you guys! How have I not read this duology sooner?! I definitely understand the hype on this now! Kaz Brekker might be my favorite book character ever now. 😍 Have any of you guys read this?

I reaaalllly loved Six of Crows and I‘m so excited that I can just jump right into the second book! I am definitely late to the game on these books but oh my gosh the first book was goooood! I think I‘m in love with Kaz Brekker 😍 and who can complain with a view like this? I love reading by the pool! ☀️

ImperfectCJ A friend recommended this series to me a few years ago, and I keep forgetting about it! It sounds like it might be a compelling listen for a looong road trip my kids and I are taking in a few weeks, but I've heard it's pretty violent. Any thoughts on whether it would be too intense for a teen and tween who've read Hunger Games without incident? 5mo
JohannaRose @ImperfectCJ Oh boy it‘s been years since I read the Hunger Game books! So I can‘t remember the violence too well but I don‘t think Six of Crows is too bad. There have been some definite moments when even I was like “woah!” But I liked it bc it helped the book feel older if that makes sense. One thing I will say is that a lot of the words are different so it might not be the easiest to listen to if you don‘t have a copy to follow along with 5mo
Shley9225 @jerra OMG HOW HAVE YOU NOT READ THE SEQUEL YET?? No hate, but honestly, you have to. It‘s one of the best-written sequels ever imho. 5mo
ImperfectCJ @JohannaRose That is super helpful feedback! Thanks! 5mo
JohannaRose @ImperfectCJ I‘m glad I could help! ☺️ 5mo
jerra @Shley9225 I bought it and was really excited but (like the first one) it started off slow for me! I hit midterms right when it started getting interesting but at that point it had to go on the backburner!! 5mo
JohannaRose @jerra That totally happens sometimes! Life gets busy, I know how that is! That‘s the good thing about books, they‘ll still be there when you have time. I know when I was in school I barely found the time to read! 5mo
Shley9225 @jerra understandable. Sorry about the hassle ❤️ but do consider giving it another shot ;) 5mo
jerra @Shley9225 No hassle! I'm the same way almost all of the time, lmao! I will. I own it. It's big and red and beautiful and I stare at it often. 5mo

Oh my gosh you guys! I MET MEGAN MIRANDA TONIGHT! She is on tour for her new book The Last House Guest. She is my favorite author and I‘m so happy! She even recognized me from me commenting on her Instagram and Twitter and her replying 😃 That made my week!! She is so kind and friendly! It was my first experience meeting an author and she certainly set the bar high! I‘m really looking forward to reading this new book! 😃😃

Scochrane26 This is a little morbid, but a few yrs ago, I wanted to go to a book fair about 4 hrs away to meet a fave author. For some reason I didn‘t go, & he died a few mths later (Pat conroy). So, now I try to meet authors if I have the chance. Glad you got to meet your favorite. Very cool! 5mo
JoScho That‘s awesome! 5mo
JohannaRose @Scochrane26 oh my gosh! I‘m so sorry that happened! It was probably such an eye opener to take advantage of the opportunities given to you! Thank you! I never know of other authors in my area but I‘m definitely going to keep my eyes open for them from now on! It was so cool! 5mo

JohannaRose @JoScho Thank you! Honestly it was one of the best days I‘ve had in a long time 😊 5mo
KathyWheeler @Scochrane26 That happened to me with Pat Conroy too — only he was 40 minutes away. I didn‘t go because I would not have gotten there in time if I left work at 5:00. I should‘ve just taken the time off. 😞 5mo
Scochrane26 @KathyWheeler there‘s prob a lot of people who didn‘t get to meet him. 5mo
KathyWheeler @Scochrane26 yeah. I think so. Now when I know an author I like is going to be here, I take that time off. 5mo
SarahHarts_books That's so awesome! I know how much you love her books (as do I!) I'm really happy you got to meet her and that she even knew who you were makes the experience even more amazing!! 😍💖 5mo
JohannaRose @SarahHarts_books Thank you! I told her that you love her too! She loved that! 😃 She was honestly so nice! I was soo surprised that she recognized me! I really couldn‘t believe it!! 5mo

I‘m about half way through Sadie and I‘m really enjoying the read! The formatting is different, half the chapters are in pod cast format. Those chapters fly by for me! The chapters from Sadie‘s point of view are a little long, which isn‘t my favorite because I hate when I have to stop a chapter half way through! But overall I‘m enjoying this read!

JohannaRose @Johanna414 Wow that‘s crazy! And yes I do. People always have trouble with it for some reason so I always say it‘s just like Hanna but with Jo in front lol do you pronounce the H? 6mo

This is the first graphic novel I‘ve ever read so I didn‘t know what to expect, but I actually really enjoyed it! It was pretty cheesy at times, which I could see being annoying to some people. But The Lunar Chronicles are one of my favorite series, so I was just excited to be able to read about my favorite characters again. It was a super fast and easy read. I will definitely read the second one!

I was reading the tagged book on my balcony last night when I noticed my cat was watching something and I looked down and saw this little visitor🦝 We live right by a wooded area and he was just passing through, not harming anyone. Needless to say, I got very distracted watching my new little friend and didn‘t get as much reading done as I wanted. But it was worth taking a break and enjoying nature 🌿

marleed @ReadingRover oh yea, they‘re cute and everything until they decide the Village is life under your deck and then invite their cousin Earl and all his family and then the possums decide if it‘s great for that many raccoons we might as well move there too! 6mo
ReadingRover @marleed 😂 I love them all! But I totally know what you mean. When one moves in they all do! I‘m a wildlife rehabilitor. So most things that people think of as nuisances really don‘t bother me. I‘ve taken in raccoons & opposums that were orphaned babies or injured. Both are pretty ridiculous. They can be pretty crafty! Definitely kept me on my toes! 6mo

I do not bail on books often but wow this book is just not something I could get into. I really tried but it felt like there wasn‘t really a plot going on, it was more just characters rambling about nonsense. I think that she was trying to have us get to know the characters but dang! I just couldn‘t stick with it anymore.

P.s do you like my iPad case that my little rescue dog “fixed” for me? 🤣 She “fixes” a lot of stuff for us, including handles on two of my favorite bags and my hubbys shoes🤦🏼‍♀️ but she was abused and neglected before she came to her forever home with us, so we can‘t ever be mad at the little sweetie.

I really liked this book! At times it was slow but once it picked up I couldn't put it down. I finished it in one day! It's not as much of a psychological thriller as I usually read, but it still kept my attention. If you're looking for a quick, easy and entertaining read, give this one a try!

I‘ve heard so much buzz about this book so I decided to give it a try, and boy am I glad I did! Psychological thrillers are the best to help me get out of reading slumps and this book did just that. It kept me guessing the whole way through and had some very interesting psychological/mental health aspects going on as well. The ending was just wow!

Do you guys ever get in a book slump where you just cannot get into anything no matter how bad you want to read? That‘s been me for the past few days.

Now it‘s time to put my phone down, snuggle with my sweet, purring cat on my lap and get out of this slump! 📚🐱💪 Happy reading, Littens! 😊

It started slow but once I got into it I couldn‘t put it down! I love fairytale retellings, so I had to give it a chance! There were a few aspects I would have changed, but I still loved it. At times Harper‘s attitude was a little too YA for me and the ending wasn‘t my favorite. The book had some awesome concepts, but I think they could have been executed a little better. I am looking forward to the sequel! If you love fairytales give it a try!

I‘m super excited about my book finds today! And that cat bookmark! I mean come on! I couldn‘t pass that up 😻 But which book should I start first Littens? Have you guys read either of these?

PaperbackPirate I‘m reading Before We Were Yours. It‘s a slow starter but now I don‘t want to stop. 6mo
marleed Before We Were Yours is a story that stays with me. It‘s the first I heard of the topic and it‘s so darn wrong. 6mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
5 stars!
This book is unlike any I‘ve read. At times it can feel slow, but it is so worth sticking with! This book is the kind that sticks with you and you think about when you‘re not reading it. I don‘t give out 5 stars often, but this one deserves it! The marsh is a mesmerizing setting and a character of its own. It is beautifully written and I can see why it‘s being called a modern day classic!

Cortg I‘m about 1/3 of the way through and all I want to do is read! I‘m hoping to get a good 45 min of reading time during my lunch/dinner break today! 7mo
JohannaRose @Cortg All I wanted to do was read it too! It‘s so good! Happy reading! 📚 I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 😊 7mo

rjsthumbelina I felt the same way about the marsh! The more I read, the more I appreciate a setting that is so vivid that it's almost it's own character ❤️ 7mo
Gennic This book was sooooo gooooood! I wasn't super into it at first but damn it was worth sticking with it.
7mo
JohannaRose @Gennic I totally agree! It took me a minute to get into it but once I was I just couldn‘t stop reading! 7mo
JohannaRose @rather_be_reading Let me know what you think when you‘re done! @rjsthumbelina Oh my gosh the marsh was just truly amazing! I feel like that was a huge part of why I loved it so much! It was so different and I was so attached to the marsh by the end! You could just feel the respect for it and I loved that 💕 7mo
baes I felt the same way. Beautiful story. 7mo
MistyNichole I agree! I loved this book!! 7mo

I have spent most of my birthday today sitting on my balcony reading this book and I do not want it to end. I love the characters and especially love the marsh 💕 The setting of this book is so beautifully written I feel like I‘m there and I don‘t want to leave. 🌱💙🌿

Today is my birthday!🎂 🎉 And my sweet sister gave me this nostalgic book!(She is an Usborne book lady, clearly we all love books in my family 🤗) Our dad used to read to us every night before bed when we were little and this book was one of our favorites! You‘re never too old for a little nostalgia 💜📚 Did any of you read this or watch the movies of it?

This is too real! Anyone else start to miss characters from books once you‘re done with it? Finishing a book is always bittersweet! 📚 #readerproblems

SarahHarts_books Yes! Totally! Sometimes I get so excited when I'm almost done with a book. Then when I finally finish... I get sad and start thinking about the characters from the book, and miss them... Like they are real people or something!! Lol 😂😂 7mo
rretzler Totally! I call it a book hangover though😂 7mo
JohannaRose @SarahHarts_books Oh my gosh yes! I love the feeling of being almost done with a book but then when I am done I‘m like “well now what?!” Then it just starts all over with a new book! It‘s especially bad with a long series when you feel like you‘ve spent so much time with the characters! 7mo

rjsthumbelina I really enjoyed it! The marsh becomes like a character of it's own, and is so wonderfully described. The section right before the end was too long in my opinion, but I believe I gave it 5 stars despite that bc of how much I liked the rest 7mo

JohannaRose @SarahHarts_books Do you already have something to read? And I‘ll definitely let you know what I think! People have been saying it‘s a modern day classic! I‘ve been writing down questions about characters and stuff as I go so you definitely need to read it so we can talk lol 7mo

My husband and I are moving out of state and have a long road trip ahead of us tonight. We love listening to books during our road trips and I really enjoy reading along while we listen ☺️ I‘m a big fan of Megan Miranda and I found this gem at a used bookstore for $5! I‘m excited to get into it. But I‘ve heard mixed reviews 😬 have any of you Littens read it? If so, what did you think?!

MaceyT15 I read this right after finishing Megan's All The Missing Girls, so unfortunately I compared the two. As a stand alone, the book is pretty decent and a rather quick read. If you haven't read All The Missing Girls yet, DEFINITELY pick that one up soon! 7mo
JohannaRose @MaceyT15 I LOVED All The Missing Girls! 😃 7mo
MaceyT15 @JohannaRose and her next book comed out next month. Looking forward to that! 7mo

Her Every Fear: A Novel | Peter Swanson

I enjoyed reading The Kind Worth Killing and A Girl With A Clock for a Heart by Peter Swanon, but I just couldn‘t get through this one. I hate stopping a book without finishing it! I feel like I‘ve wasted my valuable reading time! On the bright side, how cute is my new bookmark? I love collecting bookmarks! Anyone else?

Suet624 That‘s a beautiful bookmark! I don‘t intentionally collect bookmarks, but I sure do have a lot of them! 😀 7mo

RaimeyGallant Nice review! And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. 7mo
JohannaRose @RaimeyGallant Thank you so much! Your article come up when I googled how to work Litsy too and I‘ve been reading it while I get a chance! It‘s very helpful! 😊 I do have one question though. I was just wondering how the conversations tab works? I saw how to reply to comment on my own post. But I guess I just don‘t understand how to have conversations in that tab yet😬 I hope that makes sense! 7mo
RaimeyGallant I'm trying to figure out which tab. Can you tell where it is, and what the icon for it looks like? 7mo
JohannaRose @RaimeyGallant If I click on the lightning icon at the bottom right that takes me to my activities (it shows me who likes my posts and who is following me) it says activities on the top left and then right next to that says conversations on the top right. 7mo

TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick thanks for the shout-out sweetie 😘😘 yes Andrew and I are hosting our monthly 24-hour read-a-thon if you would like you can jump in at any time. All you have to do is read and then post your stats periodically. Andrew and I check every post and watch everybody's progress.
