I have the most awesome and brilliant #Litsypenpal in the universe! Thanks @Beck9lol for making my birthday a lot more joyful! That little coffee cup that says, ‘Friends Like Books Should be Few and Well Chosen‘ pretty much says it all! I can‘t wait to crack these beauties open along with those cocoa truffles. Yum! The Leefee plant air diffuser is perfect! So very thankful and as Miss Bates would say from Emma; ‘Wanting for nothing.‘ 💜📚💜🤗📚🥰

Beck9lol I'm so glad you like it all. I thought that mug was very fitting. I hope you had a fantastic birthday friend! 3mo

A huge, heartfelt thanks to my awesome #Litsypenpal @Beck9lol for all this bookish (and snugly) awesomeness! I think we‘re going on five years of friendship there‘s no slowing us down in sight! I‘ll be saving the two Christmas reads for later this year but eager to crack ‘Elderly Lady‘ book two and ‘The Perishing‘ to my TBR! So grateful and thankful for you, Becky and #Litsy for bringing our friendship together. Happy New Year and happy reading!📚

Beck9lol What a great five years of friendship! Happy New Year friend!! 5mo

My #Litsypenpal outdid herself once again for our Halloween gift exchange! Thanks, Becky(@beck9lol) for all the ghoulish goodies! My manager at B&N read ‘The Death of Jane Lawrence‘ and said the creep factor is off the charts! 🎃 I can‘t wait to do a deep dive into all of these. The candy was en pointe .. so much so that this is all that‘s left .. Lol! Thanks again to the best #Litsypenpal on the planet. 😎🎃👻💀🧡🖤

This book was part nature writing, essays and indigenous knowledge. Beautifully written. At times, the science/botony references were over my head but her overall message throughout was abuntantly clear; we need to take better care of Mother Earth. 🌾💚🌱🌎🌻🔬

Tamra I‘m reading this ever so slowly to savor. 1y

What a great #Litsypenpal I have! Thanks so much @Beck9lol for all the fabulous gifts! As soon as I get home tomorrow from work I‘m planning on cracking open a couple of these comfort reads. I love it all and rescue pup Cleo looks like a sweetheart ... such a great idea and cause to donate to those fur babies in need. Merry Christmas, Becky! Here‘s hoping 2021 is better for all of us.

Spring has sprung in Kentucky and April is also #AussieApril month! If you‘re into Book Tube, check out the fabulous Jaclyn; native Australian living and lawyering in Houston, TX for some great Aussie recc‘s. Tune in at: Jaclyn // Six Minutes For Me. Yay spring ... yay books! 😃🦋🌸📚🇦🇺

Mimi28 Glad you‘re back!! ❤️❤️❤️☀️☀️☀️ 3y
Joanne1 I absolutely adore The Strays. Hope you enjoy both of these great Aussie reads. 3y
Litlady @Joanne1 - So glad to hear! I‘ve only just started but I can tell it‘s going to be brilliant! Do you have other Aussie author recommendations? 😊📚🇦🇺 (edited) 3y
Joanne1 @Litlady so many. I‘ll share just a few of my favourites. Geraldine Brooks (start with Year of Wonders), Chloe Hooper (non-fiction author); Sofia Laguna; Markus Zusak (his latest novel, bridge of clay, blew me away); Helen Garner (fiction and non-fiction, some really interesting true crime); Hannah Kent; Charlotte Wood; Rosalie Ham (the dressmaker especially, but her others are good too). I could go on but that will do for now. 3y
Litlady @Joanne1 Thanks so much! I‘ve read March by G. Brooks and Hannah Kent is on my radar for Burial Rites and The Good People. So many wonderful selections here and feeling my TBR exploding but it‘s already at that point anyway ... there are worse problems - Lol! 🤷🏼‍♀️ (edited) 3y

A dark, cute and funny (short) tale about the good side of humans and wretched side as well. Anything with foxes on the cover or in the story line, I‘m sold!

I heard about this YA book from Kendra Winchester on either a Reading Women podcast or her BookTube channel (check them both out if you haven't already)! So glad I picked it up! Each chapter unfolds a piece of a puzzle for Miranda involving mysterious notes and talks of time travel and helping her mom prepare for the $20,000 Pyramid game show! Paying homage to Madeleine L'Engles 'A Wrinkle in Time' I could not put it down. 5 out 5 stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟❣

Autumn | Ali Smith
post image
Pickpick

Ali Smith is not the easiest author to read but I found her writing flow and words beautiful. If linear prose and plot is your wheelhouse, you won't find it here. The setting takes place mostly in post Brexit England and the thoughts, anger, frustration and fear in her writing mimics what we are facing in the states. The story also revolves around a sweet and tender friendship between a young girl and her elderly neighbor. Highly recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Going to squeeze in some #Litsypartyofone time before I juggle books and memberships later today/tonight at my bookselling job at B&N. Trying to make the world a better place, one book at a time! Happy Saturday, Littens!! ❤️📚🤓

Hazel0303 I just was at B&N tonight and noticed how much was different, but so much was the same. (I worked there from Sept 07 to Dec 09). I kept thinking how much I missed my time there. The membership program has really fallen on my opinion- books are so expensive to buy full price. No idea how they plan to compete with Amazon. 5y
