Reading when I should be sleeping. 🤷🏻♀️
Didn‘t realize I had this book for a whole year before picking it up!
This book made me cry. I love reading about marriage, about life after the HEA and what it‘s really like. Colleen Hoover‘s writing hooks me every time and I‘m gonna be lost now that I have to wait another year (at least) before I get another one from her.
“Who would drop a whole candy bar and not know it? ....Someone put it there on purpose. Someone who pushes dope. I read once that they feed dope in chocolates to little kids, and then the kids become dope addicts, then these people sell them dope at very high prices which they just can‘t help but buy because when you‘re addicted you have to have your dope. High prices and all. And Jamie, we don‘t have that kind of money.”
Is this a typo? I can't find the meaning online. Please help!!!☺️ For context, it says: "Jack is lying on the carpet, eyes closed, face reld. Thunderstorms are her favorite thing." I'm wondering if the "axe" part of relaxed slipped through the cracks?
Whether an accurate portrayal of old Hollywood stardom or not, I was fully invested in the story of Evelyn Hugo and the complications she faced, the sacrifices she made, and, of course, her torrid love affairs. Great read that had a lot of wonderful life quotes I won't soon forget!
Well, here I am. It's barely been a month since I finished ACOMAF but I'm reading it again. I had to after doing my ACOTAR reread. I'm just a big old pile of trash for this book series. Night Court, take me awayyyyyy.
I wish I liked this book more than I do. It deserves praise for being inspiring and honest about anxiety, autism, feminism, gender roles, bisexuality, and self-acceptance. I was truly moved by a lot of this. Unfortunately, I never connected with characters. It also has super insta-love elements that I couldn't get into. I think many people out there will LOVE it, though. #litsyatoz - Q #lrc17 #judgebycover because THAT COVER IS SO GORGEOUS.
The few complaints I have about this book pale in comparison to the importance of this book. Hatvany tells this story from two perspectives, giving us a look inside both the victim and the rapist's minds. What's so smart about this is the fact that she is acknowledging that rapists aren't always the creeps hiding in the bushes. Sometimes, they're people you care about. It's hard to read but man is it important. I'll be thinking on this a while.
I absolutely ADORED this book! The writing is funny and sexy and is the perfect pick-me-up book, excellent for book slumps or hangovers. This is Sally Thorne's first book and i hope she continues to delight with her following work!
This book was EXCELLENT. Maas is a beautiful writer and created a world that I did not (and still don't) want to leave. It is very hard for me to get into fantasy, but this was hard to put down. I cannot wait for ACOWAR!!!! #litsyatoz M- Maas
I love Sarah's Scribbles! I am always gigging and saying "That's so true!" when I see her comics. Though I loved her first one a little more, this was still fantastic!
This is required reading! A timely look at racism and the Black Lives Matter movement, this book is not afraid to explore society's problems. I learned a lot, but I also enjoyed stepping into Starr's world and seeing her family and friends. This book has moments that are hard to read, but it is also filled with humor, heart, and hope. Pick it up. #LRC3 #womanofcolorauthor
Okay, so the advice isn't necessarily new but the format is perfect. This is a book to own and turn to when you feel like you're just not doing the whole adult thing right. I wish I had the funds to buy a copy for everyone I know.
Despite the fact that being sick keeps me in bed and gives me ample opportunity to read, it also zaps my concentration and makes it soooo hard to read! I was feeling better last night and finally made a dent in my current read. #currentlyreading
What a fantastic book! I have been reading some truly excellent YA recently. This is a beautiful and heartbreaking story about a trio of friends who are all trying to move on to something better: Dill past the crimes of his father, Lydia past the small town she can't thrive in, and Travis past his abusive home life. It was not at all what I expected (that title can be misleading) and it's just a great book. #litsyatoz - Z for Zentner!
3 stars for this one. The story is adorable and I loved the concept and the fun, random dream adventures that Alice and Max experienced. Unfortunately, it did drag at some spots and I felt like it could've been cut down a bit to remove some unnecessary drama towards the end. Regardless, a fun read that was a nice break from some heavier picks! #lrc25 #freespace
I have complicated feelings about this book. I think it's an important story to tell and I think many people will learn something from it. We have to acknowledge that our actions affect people in harmful ways. That being said, I don't like that Hannah's death seems more like vengeance on the people who hurt her and less about mental illness. #LRC6 #published2007 #litsyAtoZ - A (Asher)
This is an incredible book. Absolutely loved it! The existential crisis is not new territory for me and I love how deeply and honestly it was explored in this book. The writing was on point, each character had many dimensions, and it was just a wonderful reflection on living, dying, and the meaning of life. Also, hell yes for more #queerfiction ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! #litsyAtoZ - W #LRC8 #over400pages
#currentlyreading - Had to include the usual obligatory Craftedvan bookmark...this one is very appropriate. 👽
Adam Silvera is a heartbreaker, but he does it with hope. This book is about losing your first love in more ways than one and trying to understand life after that. I think we can all find something to relate to in that. One complaint: I wish the dates didn't have years attached (there was a flaw in 1/17 that I couldn't ignore). #litsyAtoZ - H #LRC19 #LGBTQLove
