#roadtrip I have a nice little #bookstack for day 23 of #sizzlinsummerbooks We're going on a road trip to visit my grandparents in a few days and these four are the books I'll most likely be bringing unless I finish or add a book before then 🚗📖📚

monkeygirlsmama There's a series I could never get into. I tried a few times with no luck. 3y
Kaitlyn.keith.529 @monkeygirlsmama I read most of it in high school but I never finished the last one. I forget why 🤷🏼‍♀️ I normally would read it all the way through 3y

1️⃣ coffee ☕️ I don't really drink
2️⃣ first page; covers can be gorgeous with awful stories inside
3️⃣ 🏝 always; reading on the sand with the sound of the waves and the warmth from the sun 💙💙💙
4️⃣ fantasy
5️⃣ I've actually never read either 😳 both are on my TBR (and have been for awhile) but I can't seem to find them anywhere in the library.. I'll try kindle if nothing else
#bookishwouldyourather

Clare-Dragonfly I'm very surprised that you can't find Jane Eyre or Pride and Prejudice at the library! They are definitely both available for free on Kindle. There's also a great annotated Pride and Prejudice online. 3y
Kaitlyn.keith.529 @Clare-Dragonfly thanks! 😊 I'll check them out 3y
Kalalalatja Good answers 👏 3y
monkeygirlsmama Also check out the Serial Reader app. I'm reading Pride and Prejudice on it. It's my first time giving this book a go, and with this app I just get one "issue" piece a day. I think for this one it's 40 days from start to finish. Lots of other great books and shorts on this app too. ? 2y

#sizzlinsummerbooks Day 8 #timetravel This one is most exciting for me so far (can we tell I'm a Doctor Who fan?). I didn't realize I had so much Doctor Who related stuff ? The book is the "Essential Guide" to 50 years of whovian-ness and all 11 doctors (up to that point) that my parents got me for my birthday one year, a dalek that my uncle made me, poster from "The Day of the Doctor", series 7 pt 1 DVD, and an awesome TARDIS/Van ... (con't)

Kaitlyn.keith.529 ...Gogh coffee mug that my best friend got me for my birthday one year. Also not pictured because I forgot are an adipose plushie my brother made me and a couple Doctor Who themed decals on my laptop. Plus there's a little funko pop Capaldi Keychain sitting on top of the book 3y

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I forgot music! 🎼 3y
Kaitlyn.keith.529 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I almost always have music playing 🎧 I had to include it lol I felt like it would be wrong not to 😄 3y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Kaitlyn.keith.529 I need to find some really relaxing music to listen at night or when in stressed... so basically all day 🤣😂 3y

Kaitlyn.keith.529 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks for relaxing instrumental I'd suggest Sungha Jung (guitar) or Yiruma (piano). They're two of my favorites 🎶💙 3y

Day 6 of #sizzlinsummerbooks #library ? I had to do "Daring Chloe." She has her own personal library of books and through their book club, books have been added to my personal library and TBR pile. I thought of using this for "travel" or "getawaysgonewrong" but I felt like it should be in this prompt.

Realized I never actually did this lol

1. Angier, North Carolina
2. I saw people talking about it on Instagram #bookstagram
3. I think the Hunger Games stuck to the story pretty well. Or for a series Ouran High School Host Club or Nana
4. Never had a pet turtle but that was sort of a nickname in high school (I'm not super slow or anything; we had presentations and mine was about turtles 😂🐢)

saguarosally I did a presentation in elementary school but it was about plastic visors. Turtles are much more interesting subjects. 3y

The Two Princesses of Bamarre | Gail Carson Levine

My pick for Day 5 of #sizzlinsummerbooks is a longtime favorite of mine. Bugs are one of Addie's many, many fears, and the first one she conquers 💪🏼 🕷 I've had this book easily for at least ten years (and it shows with the taped spine and cover). I never get tired of this story 📖👸🏻 #julybooks #fairytales #princesses #bug

Linear That was going to be my first pick, I read it like nearly 17 years ago now. And I remember enjoying it a lot, however I decided to go with the Vampire Academy for besties since the two were sisters but I'm glad somebody else had the same mindset as I did. 3y
Kaitlyn.keith.529 @Linear This is probably my favorite story. I had to use it somewhere lol I think it's a good fit though 👌🏼 (edited) 3y

I prefer print books but I'm thinking of trying out some audio books so I can multitask. I have a kindle and a nook but I don't really use them as much. I'd rather have the physical book in my hand 📚 #6666giveaway

Megabooks Audiobooks are awesome for that! 3y
Kaitlyn.keith.529 @Booksandcooks yeah I've seen a lot of posts about people listening to them while they work and I'm thinking I need to try that. I usually only get to read at night after I'm done with my work but audiobooks would be awesome for that 🎧😊 3y

A Wrinkle in Time | Madeleine L'Engle
Pickpick

I'm not entirely sure what I was expecting when I started this book but I was definitely pleased with it. It wasn't super predictable and had a lot of story packed into 12 short chapters. The characters were fun and the story managed to be serious but still funny and light.
