Joining in on the #weeklyforecast!

I started my reread of Harry Potter last night, so my plan is to continue that and If You Tell on audio. I'm hoping to also get through Bringing Down the Duke next week, but we'll see what kind of time I have. I start training for a new job tomorrow, so I might be tired in the evenings. But at least I get about a half hour of reading time on the T twice a day!
Have a great week everyone! 😊💜

Normal People | Sally Rooney
post image
Mehso-so

Normal People follows the relationship between Connell and Marianne over a number of years, from high school to adulthood. That is all I can come up with as far as a summary goes, because nothing else really happens.
Despite the lack of plot in this novel, I still enjoyed it. I‘m not sure why. Its just very “readable.”
See my full review here: http://bit.ly/2tysqtF

MMFinck I‘m reading it now. Agreed - very readable. I wish I could stop the world and just read. I‘m not expecting a big plot. It feels like an epic love story in the making like One Day. If it‘s not, I will definitely need some other happy or redeeming ending! Don‘t tell me. Just saying. :) 🤞🙏🏻 2d

My sister and I finally made it to the movies to see this one yesterday! It was so good! I cried more than once.
Also, I have a ton of stuff to do today and all I wanna do is lay on the couch and read. 😫

laurenslibrary @MelissaSue81 It's like that where I live in Pittsburgh, too. But my parents and sister live about an hour outside the city in the middle of nowhere and their movie theater is super cheap! 3d

When Rowan Caine lands a gig as a live-in nanny for a wealthy family, she thinks she has found her dream job. But when the “smart house“ begins acting strangely and she begins to hear noises in that attic, she suspects there might be something sinister in her new home.
I loved this book! Creepy and suspenseful and totally up my alley!

I know I already reviewed this but... I want to write a better review!
Stella and Will both suffer from cystic fibrosis. Despite this, they strike up a friendship. But how close can you get to someone when you have to keep 6 feet between you at all times?
I don't usually like YA, but I enjoyed this book. It's a tearjerker. Despite the YA writing style, I really enjoyed the story.

ImperfectCJ @laurenslibrary I haven't been to Gatlinburg since high school. To be honest, I'm looking forward even more to the side trip to Asheville we're planning, but it will be nice to see my nieces. I lived in San Diego as a kid (twice) and moved back two years ago. I like it very much...one of my favorite places to live. Great to visit, too, of course! 2w

Hi, guys!
I started a "chick lit" book club on Discord for anyone interested! (If you don't know what chick lit is, think Jojo Moyes, Liane Moriarty, ect. TBH, I'm going to be rather loose with that definition but more on that if you join)
If you would like to join, here is the link: https://discord.gg/YRfk4c
I'm happy to have anyone, but will unfortunately cut it off at a certain point if I get too many.

laurenslibrary The group is also about making friends, so there will be general chat allowed! Come join us to talk books and life! If you don't know what Discord is, it's basically a chat room app. Orginally for gamers, but there's all sorts of channels now. You can download it for Android and Apple. Any questions, let me know! 2w

This was a cute, quick, little love story. However, I think maybe I just wasnt in the right mood for this book, because I loved The Kiss Quotient but couldnt get as into this one.
