The Freedom to Read | American Library Association

The Missouri Library Association is fighting against Missouri House Bill 2044 which would appoint a “parent group” to pass into law censorship of library books. I can only hope the librarians and library patrons who fight against this censorship win this battle. #censorship #freedomtoread #ala #ireadbannedbooks

Thank you @Megabooks for tagging me.
🦊My resolution this year is to choose to think a bit more before I speak. It‘s going well.
🦊I‘m reading the tagged book bc my niece has read it and then we can talk about it.
🦊I am choosing not to tag anyone because if you see this and want to participate you can choose to do so! And then it‘s like I tagged everybody 🤔?

Megabooks That‘s a good resolution! 💜 2w

I recall watching the anime when I was fourteen, the same age as Sailor Moon/Serena. I loved it. It is only now I‘m reading the Eternal Edition manga and also loving it. It is nostalgic and I love the storyline. Sailor Moon reminds me that even a crybaby/whiny/jealous typical teen can be a hero. So maybe there is hope for us all 😂😀🤪. #sailormoon

To Drink Coffee with a Ghost | Amanda Lovelace, ladybookmad
post image

I was walking around Target and found this book. I didn‘t buy it. But I did flip it open and this is the poem this book selected for me. It reminded me of childhood, parts taken away because choices a parent makes take control over your life and sometimes not for the better. And so I may have loved the cover and the author but this poem was so heavy and that is not a weight I choose to carry... in my hand or on my bookshelf.

So did anyone else really dislike Feyre? I‘m on chapter 21 where she sneaks to the spring festival and gets upset when Lucien scolds her. It‘s like she is a common teenager thrown into this faery realm and she is just so spoiled for someone who had to struggle to survive. I am annoyed too with Tamlin and Feyre‘s quick relationship status from captor to lover. I understand the idea of Stockholm syndrome but come on. Thoughts????

Hestapleton I love this series and it gets MUCH better in the second book, imo. I think it‘s worth it. 3w
Moonprismpower @Hestapleton okay good to know. I‘m struggling with this because it feels so flat. I‘m hoping the second book captures my interest. And I feel like I should read this series just so I know what everyone is talking about! 3w

Knox was my favorite character.
The ending was not believable.😕
The ending didn‘t feel complete.
But if anything, read it for Knox, the underdog of the novel. 🙂

Becoming | Michelle Obama

At Christmas time she got especially creative. One year she figured out how to cover our boxy metal radiator with corrugated cardboard made to look like red bricks so that we‘d have a faux chimney and a faux fireplace complete with a mantle and hearth. She then enlisted my father the family‘s resident artist to paint a series of orange flames on very thin slices of rice paper, which when backlit made a half convincing fire. -chapter 4

And now let us believe in a long year that is given to us, new, untouched, full of things that have never been, full of work that has never been done, full of tasks, claims, and demands; and let us see that we learn to take it without letting fall too much of what it has to bestow upon those who demand of it necessary, serious, and great things.

My 2019 year in review! I‘m very proud to say I had my goal set at 24 so as not to overwhelm myself. I even felt like I was never reading at all this past year as a librarian that can put a lot of undo pressure on oneself. But I surpassed my goal! Yay!

The Cheerleaders | Kara Thomas
post image
Pickpick

This was one of those books where I couldn‘t be sure who did it. I felt it was pretty good but although the mystery was intact and thought out pretty well I felt there was a little too much push for the protagonist, Monica to research the cheerleaders‘ deaths when there wasn‘t much to go on for clues. She was looking for an excuse I suppose. So I‘d recommend it as I did listen to it non-stop to see what happened.

Although the writing wasn‘t perfect I was very moved by Remy And Elise‘s fast and strong bond over shared tragedy. And I saw in Elise friends I‘ve had to remove from my life because they were toxic having grown up in a toxic environment. Everyone suffers, but it is finding a way to move past it and having a support system to help you that is the key to life.

What if Lily had married Snape? You totes know they‘d have a kid and name him Prince. Of course I also like the name Spinner from where Severus grew up so I‘m gonna use that name because it sounds super dorky. Now imagine Spinner getting sorted and the adventures that follow! 😂 I got the mini Snape in my advent this morning 😁 and my imagination went flying...

Scochrane26 @Moonprismpower I got mcgonagall & Ginny, so they‘re prob in there. Awhile back, I wanted the mcgonagall funko, but decided not to get it because it‘s so plain. Her Yule ball one is better, more colorful. 1mo

If you are a fan of Ali Wong‘s Netflix specials you will laugh at her book Dear Girls. I love her candid comedy and when I first saw her special Baby Cobra a few months back I was rolling on the floor with laughter. She talks dirty and I die in hysterics.
👍🏼👍🏼
Wong started out performing more raunchy comedic bits and it shows in this book so if you are not into that you should pass on this one.

Success! I‘ve sent out my #JolabokaflodSwap book to my holiday recipient and I hope they love it! 🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽
Thank you @MaleficentBookDragon for this awesome holiday idea and for organizing it. It‘s a great way for newbies like me to get to know the community.

TheDaysGoBy The swaps are great and this one is definitely fun/easy! Welcome to Litsy! We‘ve got a pretty great community here 2mo
Moonprismpower @TheDaysGoBy I hope so! I wasn‘t sure if it was a swap in that I and another person get each other or more like secret Santa. I hope my giftee enjoys everything 😬. Are there other swaps or activities you suggest I try here? 2mo
TheDaysGoBy @Moonprismpower Depends on the swap if you get matched with the same person who sends to you. Most I think are random so it‘s more of a secret Santa thing. You can find stuff happening by following @LitsyHappenings and there are some hashtags you can search/be on the lookout for #litsyswaps #buddyread 2mo
See All 10 Comments
TheDaysGoBy Also there are daily get to know/book related questions hosted by various people. #wonderouswednesday is today‘s #friyayintro is another big one. Those are a fun way to interact/get to know your fellow Littens better 2mo
TheDaysGoBy Actually looks like #friyayintro is done now. Still, keep an eye out for hashtags as you can find some great people through there. And just try to follow some people that seem active. You‘ll come to recognize some of the regulars that seem to organize a lot of events/read-a-thons and so on 2mo
Moonprismpower @TheDaysGoBy okay I‘ll try to keep up! 🤓 2mo

What are your thoughts on Alastar “Mad-Eye” Moody? To me he is like the creepy relative no one ever invites over but tolerated when he shows up at your front door. (Said I! I totes have the possible future of spinster aunt who will likely begin collecting cats and knitting sweaters from cat fur...)

I think my favorite scene is Harry‘s first Christmas with presents at the foot of his bed. Having never received real gifts this was an important and bittersweet moment.
Also...
I totally would have been Snape or Mcgonacall based on my personality. And I would have been honored to work alongside Dumbledore. He‘s got...charisma.

Sometimes characters in a book can bring you sadness. The loss of Cedric was so overwhelming both in the book and the movie you cannot help but want to cradle the boy in your arms trying to protect him. Just like Harry did. Sometimes the world can be a scary place and you lose people, friends, family and even strangers but their loss is still profound.

I always thought Hermione and Ron to be a bit off putting but this moment shows a lot of raw emotion and I could see why they got together. Being thrown together constantly and their entire friendship has been leading up to this. And the movie version Ron looked so dejected and angry and Hermione so sad I completely fell for them.

The Yule Ball was a definitely a junior or high school moment for all of us. We were either ecstatic about our date, disappointed we didn‘t go with our crush or we were the slightly odd couple who didn‘t care what anyone thought as long as we had a good time! Hagrid you know I‘m talking about you and Madame Maxime 😉

On Christmas Eve, Harry went to bed looking forward to the next day for the food and the fun, but not expecting any presents at all. When he woke early in the morning, however, the first thing he saw was a small pile of packages at the foot of his bed.

I was always a sucker for the Scholastic book flier and was always the kid that had a giant stack. I‘d get the Babysitter‘s Club, a book that usually came with a necklace and one year I got a diary which I still have. Thank you MOM for letting me spend your money!!! She told me she would always buy me books. And it is true even to this day.

We believed our wounds made us special. We believed what didn‘t kill us made us stronger. We believed our tragedies were romantic.

At least that‘s what we told ourselves. But that night it was beginning to sound less like an inspirational motto to live by and more like something we had to tell ourselves to survive.

I haven‘t read this or seen the Netflix special but I did get this as a holiday gift for someone. And I requested a copy for myself through my library. But I thought I‘d ask...
For any book...
❄️ Do you prefer the original book cover or the cover linked to the film?
❄️Do you compare the book to movie religiously or do you love and accept both?
❄️Do you read/watch holiday related books/movies during the holiday or all year long?

StayCurious I love when books I like are made into movies or tv shows! If I like the movie adaptation I tend to like the movie tie in cover. I love sappy holiday movies - this year I‘m binging hallmark movies😛 2mo
Moonprismpower @StayCurious my favorite super cheesy tv holiday movies:Eve‘s Christmas (on amazon prime) and Ebbie (starring Susan Lucci) and A Diva‘s Christmas Carol (Vanessa Williams). But my most favorite Christmas movie of all time is Scrooged. 2mo

Maybe it was me but the plot and the character of Bailey was so out of control it was unbelievable. I believe Veronica felt she only had the choice if this ex best friend but the shenanigans Bailey causes seemed way over the top. Especially for such a serious situation. And I understand Veronica would go to any lengths to get to Albuquerque I think to ensure she actually made it she would have ditched Bailey long ago.
