I finished the Improbable Meet Cute series this morning. This is my ranking 1 being my favorite and 6 being my least favorite. I wouldn‘t say any of these stories were terrible though. I also love how there is a reference to a character from book 1 in book 6 but none of these stories are actually interconnected and can be read in any order. #ReadYourKindle #SeriesLove2024 #ReadAway2024

Finished my 2nd book for #AuldLangSpine. This one is short but was so moving and powerful. It feels heavy but in the way that a weighted blanket feels. I can see myself recommending this one a lot. Reads as a poetry memoir of sorts with lots of self-healing. I think anyone would benefit from reading it, but perhaps especially those who have experienced their own crisis of faith. ⛪️🏳️‍⚧️ #ReadAway2024

MatchlessMarie Also the transition tone on the audio reminded me of the intro to Infinitely Ordinary by The Wrecks which kind of fits in with the tone of the book. Check it out 💜 https://open.spotify.com/track/2IWWOWS7n00wpz1ewqEC8w?si=I-ygH9xMQRWgX0pA6YJ0Zw 1mo

Read the top one yesterday and the tagged book today. Ironically I popped into a dollar tree and found the top book when I was avoiding going on a walk because it was so windy 😂 🌬️ Tagged book is about a giant terrorizing a small village till an even bigger giant comes along and give him a taste of his own medicine. #ReadAway2024

Finished this audio on Tuesday. Blue Nose Audio production value is *chefs kiss*. I have been wanting to branch out a little more since I don‘t usually read books with fantasy elements in them. This one was great for someone like me who finds books like that intimidating to start. This is the first of a trilogy so adding on to the #SeriesLove2024 pile. Book 2 is already queued up for February if I can wait that long 😂 #ReadAway2024

Finished my first 2024 #AuldLangSpine book today which was also my January #DoubleSpin. The premise of this book was very clever. It kind of reminded me of a cross between Good Omens and Dead Like Me but layered on top of a thriller. I think this book will stay with me for a while. Would be a good discussion book for a buddy read I think. #JoyousJanuary #ReadAway2024

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 1mo
monalyisha That sounds kind of weird and fun. Thrillers aren‘t typically my thing but I might look into this one! 1mo
DieAReader 🥳Great 1mo
BennettBookworm I‘m SO happy you liked it! I agree, it‘s one that really stuck with me and is so good to discuss because it‘s so intricate. Case in point, my sisters and I just spent a long time discussing it! @LiteraryinLawrence 1mo

Finished Hawke today. Ahhhh I know it‘s early but this is probably going to be my favorite read of January at least. Please do the audio it is an experience. So much raw emotion 😭🥹 aside from the spicy bits which there is plenty of 😏. Also if you like books with a character that make you want to break things because you hate them so much this is your book 😂 💯 #ReadAway2024

Been sleeping on this series. This one was so good. My first “I don‘t need sleep, I need to read my book” read of the year 😂 Gavin‘s marriage is in trouble and his friends approach him with their secret book club where they read between the lines of romance books to mend their relationships to help fix his before it‘s too late. Lots of humor and heart in this one too. ❤️‍🩹#SeriesLove2024

Meant to post this at the beginning of the month when we first put up our tree. Do you spy the book ornaments? 😜

1 - Favorite - ahhh so hard to choose. Undoctored by Adam Kay was my favorite non-fiction. But a year end favorite I haven‘t raved about yet on here was The Anti-Hero by Sara Cate. Recommend for fans of the Priest series by Sierra Simone.

2 - Least favorite - The Boy with The Bookstore by Sarah Echavarre Smith ⬇️

MatchlessMarie 3 - other than finish reading books and try to find some fireworks to watch with the kiddo not really.

4 - nah
5 - Texans are traumatized by the winter storm of 2021 so I am fine with a Christmas in the 40s/50s lol

Sorry I kind of fell off the Litsy map the past week. I think one of my goals for 2024 is to be more consistently active on Litsy. 😜

The last couple of years I usually spend NYE driving around with my kiddo catching fireworks where we find them because crowds here are for the birds. And watching When Harry Met Sally.. And as always I spend NYE trying to squeeze as many last minute books as possible lol #WinterGames #TeamReindeerGamers

So excited to open my #JolabokaflodSwap package today. I adore Matthew Gray Gubler and can‘t wait to read his latest. Also Land O Lakes or as I call it LOL 😂 hot cocoa is my favorite. Looking forward to trying the Hawaiian chocolate, especially the passion fruit. A couple years back when I was making the waitress pies I made a chocolate one with passion fruit so I know it‘s a great combo. Happy holidays!!!

DebinHawaii Yay! I‘m glad you will enjoy it! I thought the book looked so cute as I was wrapping it. I‘m a MGG fan too from Criminal Minds but didn‘t realize he wrote books. Merry Christmas! 🎄 💚 2mo

Today in honor of my seven (🤯) year Litsy anniversary, I am announcing a year long readathon / challenge I will be hosting in 2024. In the seven years I have been on this app I have collected over 60 books from littens either through book swaps or various giveaways and would like to create a challenge with the focus to get through the physical TBR in 2024. I hope you join me! Use #AcquiredViaLitsy2024 and tag me in your posts next year! 📚😘

Birthday was spent pretty low key. I took the day off work and bummed around collecting birthday freebies. I had joked yesterday that I was going to be listening to the Company cast album all day since it was my 35th bday 😜 (for non theater geeks the musical centers around the main character‘s 35th bday). I just so happened to find the original Broadway recording on Vinyl. Absolutely bonkers! 🤯 ⬇️

MatchlessMarie I also got this cool box to organize my #BookSpinBingo tiles. I wish I had thought of this sooner. And I picked up a copy of the tagged book because I hate myself, jk 😂 It will probably end up being a project for 2024. It will probably be fun to attempt to solve anyway. More birthday shenanigans will be happening this weekend with my mom and sister. Thanks to everyone who participated in #35by35 with me 😘 📖 3mo
