Carolyn11215 @Taulara #cupidgoespostal is one of litsy‘s periodic swaps. You sign up and get matched secretly with another litten and in this case buy them some books and other valentine/themed goodies and put them in the mail. Packages must be received by FEB 14th at which time everyone opens up and posts. There‘s a new signup for a books and chocolate eggs one around Easter if you are interested. I think it‘s called booksandbaskets. (edited) 2y

Since I know there are so many tea lovers on Litsy... Teavana is going out of business! Everything is 75%+ off right now, so if you‘re in need of a stock up, how‘s a good time. I‘m so sad they‘re closing, they were my favorite tea supplier, but at least I‘m set for a while 😂😭🍵

I enjoyed the story - it was definitely a page turner! I just didn‘t like any of the characters and felt they made terribly stupid decisions that just made their situation worse. I definitely enjoyed the plot twists though!

First book of 2018 finished! Yay! This whole series was lovely. It felt like reading segments of someone‘s life. It was normal drama, nothing over the top or unbelievable and I think that‘s what I loved most about it. It just seemed like such a real story. Lara Jean was such a cute character as well. I adored the ending! 😊

I don‘t think cozy mysteries are for me... This was my book club‘s pick for this month; If it wasn‘t for book club I don‘t think I would have finished it. I felt the characters were rather flat and the author never went deeper than surface level on anything. The characters were very stereotypical and there was just way too much filler. But hey, I tried something new! 😝

Cinfhen I'm worried about making it through a cozy for the #Booked2018 reading challenge 🙄😬 2y

MatildaBaggins @Cinfhen Not going to lie, I skimmed through a good portion of the second half 😳 2y

“Keep going, be nice, make friends”

I adored this book. The Alvin series was such an ode to HP. I loved the references to Doctor Who. But what I loved most of all is how the characters felt so real. It was such an accurate portrayal of life, loss, and anxiety.

I‘m finally getting caught up on some Uppercase picks!

Going against popular opinion here... I really didn‘t like this book 😳. There was a strong lack of world building or any explanation as to why/how things were the way that they were. There were too many inconsistencies. Also Tana just seemed to make the worst decisions ever with no strong reason for her bad choices. After a while it just became eye roll for me. I really wanted to like this one because the first chapter just seemed so promising!

ferskner I didn't like this one either. One of my few DNF. 2y

When I got this book in my #uppercasebox I wasn‘t really sure it was my cuppa tea, but I ended up really enjoying it. It‘s a unique story and the plot was fast paced without having too much going on. I haven‘t read a book involving the fey since Mortal Instruments so this was a nice change. Come to think of it, I don‘t think I‘ve read an actual fey novel... good thing #uppercase included a list of suggestions! 😊
