I read this on the heels of “She Said,“ which is mostly same topic and subject. They were both great. I'm a bit fascinated by Ronan Farrow and didn't realize he was a life partner with a man who runs one of my fave podcasts, Pod Save America. I recommend! #WinterGames #TeamNutcracker #TBRReads

This was good, for what it was. Entertaining to flip through, but for me not a book I‘m going to read word for word. It did help me accomplish my 2019 #goodreadsreadingchallenge though and get one more book off my #TBRReads #WinterGames #TeamNutcracker

Santa Mouse | Michael Brown
post image
Pickpick

Santa Mouse might be my favorite #HolidayRead of all. In fact, I quoted from this book on Thanksgiving when some of the kids were complaining about the stinky cheese on our charcuterie platter. I‘ve always loved the illustrations, the gentle rhyming, and Santa mouse all cozied up in his little hole in the home he created for himself with some leftover items from around the house.🎅 🐭 #WinterGames #TeamNutcracker

⭐️ I‘ve read 61 books this year
⭐️My Goodreads goal for this year is 62 (almost there!)
⭐️ I really want to read “The Most Spectacular Restaurant in the World”
⭐️ Winter to me is about cozy settings with books, wine, great lighting and family.

Sigh. I really get bummed out when a well-reviewed and hyped book disappoints me. I‘m about halfway through and I‘m finding myself skimming pages because it‘s just missing its mark. Maybe another time.

Cinfhen Hate when I fall for hype 😫😫😫 1mo
DGRachel Leigh Bardugo is one of the super popular authors that just doesn't work for me and I'm disappointed every time I try one of her books. I feel like everyone else loves her so there must be something wrong with me, but I've tried two books that are very different from each other and did not enjoy either. I keep looking at this one and thinking maybe this one will work and I'll love it, but after this review, I'll probably save my money. 1mo
Cathythoughts I also bailed on this one .... it wasn‘t holding my attention at all 1mo

Graciouswarriorprincess I bailed as well. @DGRachel I thought that I would like her as this is the first book that I read but couldn't get past page 45. DNF for me. 1mo
DGRachel @Graciouswarriorprincess, that settles it then. I was starting to waffle again when I saw it was a pick for November's BOTM, but I'm going to stay strong and not waste my credit. I'm glad so many people love her work, but I just have to come to terms with the fact that I will never be one of those people. 1mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DGRachel I really wanted to like her and kept trying to read it since like you, so many people liked it here and it was also a BN bookclub pick. But I just couldn‘t get into the book. ☹️ 1mo

I have endless admiration for these two journalists (and ALL journalists!). I thought I had a basic understanding of what was entailed in pursuing and producing a news story, but no, I really didn't. It is much more intricate and exhaustive. (Continued below)

LMJenkins As far as the content....wow. It's worth the read. Weinstein and others with a lot of funds and little regard for women (or men) just take and take and take what they want and often get away with it. I'm glad some of the bastards are being brought to justice as women (and men) take great risks to make their experiences public. 2mo

Hey Littens —

I have not been on Litsy much this summer, and I was just scrolling around trying to see if there are any fall or autumn swaps set up. I didn‘t see any. Am I missing anything, if so can you direct me? Hope you‘re all well! #litsyswapsearch #litsyswaps #litsyhappenings

AmyG I am thinking that the recent swaps are now closed. I don‘t recall any open sign-ups. 3mo
Megabooks Same as @AmyG 3mo
LitsyHappenings I believe 👆 that‘s right, but @MaleficentBookDragon and maybe @BookishMarginalia will have a Halloween swap coming up.. and maybe others! 3mo

I liked this. I was drawn to the beautiful cover when I received the #ARC awhile ago, but it took me awhile to pick it up. If I read too many of a similar type book -- author, genre, era) then I get burnt out. It happened with Stephen King two decades ago & I'm only now interested again (even though I've always known he was awesome). ANYWAY - this happened to me with Asian books, so it took me a but to pick this up but I liked it.

There's a great deal today from Libro.fm if you join -- three credits for the price of one month ($14.99). And the best part is you have all the membership benefits you'd get through Audible, but you can support your local independent bookstore instead of Amazon. Win-win! #audiobookswitch
