I finished this today, it's definitely a fun dark series. I'll get the next one from the library as well! I was in a book hangover for a while, so I was happy to break through!

I'm obviously late to the party but I've done my stats every month and I don't want to miss one! May was fairly dismal for reading - I had a wretched 2 week reading slump!! But I'm happy it's June now, 2 of my favorite #romantsy authors have new releases this month and I'm pretty pumped about it!!! #readingstats #meghanreadsromantsy

I have an insatiable urge to read about California in the springtime. This hit the spot. I find Didion cannot be read in long stretches, only in bite size chunks. I enjoyed it, but it is very rough, clearly notes, without a cohesive thought process.

Saw this on #carinapress Facebook and could not resist the repost! I literally got in trouble in school for reading all the time lol!

stephhammer Many times when we watched movies in class, I was the kid who had a book hidden on my lap & would read instead of watching the movie. Thank you to all the teachers who surely noticed but let me get away with it! 3y

mrsmarch @Gayan When I was in 8th grade our school-wide dedicated reading time fell right at the start of my honors algebra class. It had the bonus effect of making me eager to get to math so I could sit down and get my book out. 😂 3y

MyNamesParadise I remember one time in elementary school we had spare time and the substitute teacher mentioned something we could do when we were done, but she didn't say we could read. I went up to her and asked and she was like "of course you can!" My mom was a lunch monitor there at the time and the sub told my mom and she was like "your daughter is so sweet. Can you believe she asked if she could read" ?☺️ 3y

Dear Fellow Littens, help! I can't decide what book I want to read next! All of these are on my tbr, but nothing sounds better than anything else. I've read some of the Steinbeck and the Ferrante but have not been able to finish them (other stuff gets in the way!) The Dessen would be a re-read, but I've been on a Dessen kick lately. And I've been saving the final Pink Carnation book - could it be time? Vote below!

LeahBergen A or B! 😄 3y

My all-time favorite Sarah Dessen book, the one that came out my senior year, I read it before I left for college 800 miles away from home. It still holds up on re-reads, because some things are universal. And the original cover is 💯🎯😻 #hatespinnerbait

I ended up really enjoying this book, despite the egregious typo I found in it! 😂. This is the kind of book I buy, intend to read, but never do, so I'm glad I made the time now. I was really engaged with the mystery, and did not see some of the twists coming!

It's once again so new it's not on Litsy yet, but I finished the latest in the #hadeshangmen series today. I re-read the entire series to prepare for it, and I loved seeing the epic scope of Tillie Cole's work! I really liked this one, although I would have liked to have seen some more with the main couple. She writes really emotional dark romances though so the angst was 🎯🔥💯🚨👍👌

As many of you know, I'm a dyed-in-the-wool #romantsy fan, and in honor of the self-publishing dynamo that is Tillie Cole releasing the latest in her Hangmen series, I'm starting from the beginning again and will read Damnable Grace last. I had bought some of her books before, but wasn't feeling them until I read It Ain't Me, Babe. This one started it all for me, I'm loving the re-read! #meghanreadsromantsy

julesG Is this the first in the series? I think I've got this somewhere, too. And, of course, haven't read it yet. 3y

Mehso-so

I did not enjoy this book, but I'm glad I read it. JD Vance is going to run for office one day, and I will be glad I read this. I don't think this offers particular insight into the Rust Belt or Trump voters, but it did hammer home some truths to me about those areas.

LauraBeth You can read this one in a day or two 😀 3y
Audrey This book infuriated me. It's filled with white obliviousness. I still get ranty thinking about it. I also live in the most opinionated zip code: 02138. 3y
See All 16 Comments
Pinkmeghan @Laalaleighh yessss!!!🙌 3y
Pinkmeghan @LauraBeth I'm making some headway, I have to keep stopping to check on work or bang my head against a brick wall lol! 3y
Pinkmeghan @Audrey yep, it's infuriating. I'm basically continuing to read it because I think this is an opening salvo of a political career, and I want to know what crap he's spouting. 3y
Audrey His analysis at the end is so intellectually lazy. Be aware so your head doesn't pop off. I saw red, I was so angry. 3y
LauraBeth Agree that this books has a lot of problems @Pinkmeghan and @Audrey. Too much anecdotal "evidence" as his research. It could have worked as just a memoir (and I'm wondering if that's how Ron Howard will arrange it to fit a screenplay). I'm a liberal living in Georgia - so I'm a much hated unicorn here - but I wanted to read this to see if it could provide insight into regional culture and how it shapes political values but it didn't do that. 3y
Pinkmeghan Omg @LauraBeth @audrey I'm almost to the end and holy crow, the bullshit is just piling up. This is absolutely his first step for political office. And this terrifies me 3y
Audrey @LauraBeth I really resent that it was marketed to explain the trump phenomenon. While Vance's local was different then most memoirs, his story wasn't original. He seemed to think he was the only who grew up poor and became successful. (edited) 3y
Audrey @Pinkmeghan I wonder where he will run. Doesn't he live and work in Silicon Valley? He gave an interview in my local paper recently where he commented that he didn't realize that poor people of color also grew up in circumstances similar or worse then him. Really, that's a surprise? And, he still didn't realize that with his white privilege, he didn't have to worry about being shot by law enforcement. Ugh, I'm annoyed all over again. 3y
LauraBeth @Pinkmeghan and @audrey I'm reading 👆right now - it may be of interest 3y
Pinkmeghan Thanks @LauraBeth I'll check it out! @audrey he just made the news (via a NYT piece *he* wrote all about "why he's moving home." Tl;dr he's going to "live" in Columbus and obvs run from Ohio, but he's also taken a job in DC bc his wife is clerking for Justice Roberts (obvs right?). 3y
Pinkmeghan @Audrey I was so angry when I read the book partially because he was so convinced his experience as a "poor white boy" was unique. I grew up in South Boston, and I recognized so many of the people I grew up around in the story. Yet I'm a "liberal elite" bc I live in New England? 3y
ReadingSusan @LauraBeth omg! Another unicorn!! We are so rare here! 3y

I won a #Goodreads arc of Sarah Dessen's new book! My full review is on #Goodreads, but I wanted to do a shorter one here. Here's the deal - SD had a few books that I did not enjoy, but she's back to form now, so definitely check this one out. I would say it's in my Top 5 of her books, it's probably #5, but that's still pretty darn good! Sarah Dessen = summer for me, now and forever!

I'm catching up on my #marchreads reviewing, and picking up where I left off finds us beginning my foray through Mariana Zapata's backlist. I was fascinated, reading her books from newest to oldest, to see her develop into such a strong emotional writer. Her first books all have the seeds of what she develops later, and I really enjoyed them. Under Locke is one of her middle books, and it's a solid slow burn. 👍#romantsy #slowburn

The perils of working from home ? of the time - almost everyone else is in a different time zone (and thus a different weather system) so you don't really get a "snow day" it's just another day. That happens to have snow in it. Oh well, it's in exchange for all the lunches I can take during the summer when I go swim in my in-laws pool.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I'd also love a snow day, they seem quite magical! 3y

Reviewsbylola I always wonder if I would actually get anything done if I worked from home. Probably not. 😂 3y
ReadingSusan @ramyasbookshelf omg me too. The day we had where we were supposed to get five inches and we got nothing was the saddest day. Indeed at least one snow a year. 3y
Redwritinghood Same here. A snow day just means I still have to work even though my kids are home from school to offer more distractions. 3y
Melissa_J We don't get snow days no matter how much snow is expected, the schools always stay open (buses will get cancelled though) and businesses stay open. Then again, I live in a winter city so snow is just part of life. 3y
Pinkmeghan @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I agree! I'm jealous of my friends texting me about all the fun relaxing stuff they're doing today! 😂 3y

Pinkmeghan @Redwritinghood ha my distraction is my husband but same! 3y
Pinkmeghan @Melissa_J we pretty much only close down for nor'easters with the high winds and low visibility. We're on a state driving ban now, which forces everything to close for the storm. I'm more nervous than usual though because this is our first winter in our new house at the bottom of a hill. We lost power for a few hours during the first ❄️ of the season, now I'm preparing for it! 3y
Melissa_J @Pinkmeghan stay warm! Hopefully your power stays on this time. 3y

Pinkmeghan @thegirlwiththelibrarybag that sounds kind of lovely right now lol! 🏝 3y
Pinkmeghan @raelaschoenherr sometimes I think we have so many driving bans to keep the non-new Englanders off the roads. Perils of living in a college town. The storm did get downgraded in inches, but not in wind, it's going to change over to rain this afternoon so I'll have to go shovel before it changes over. We'll probably end up in the 10" band, not too bad. 3y
Pinkmeghan @ReadingSusan ha! Great minds! 😂 3y
Pinkmeghan @raelaschoenherr I thought of you when I just heard that the New Hampshire liquor stores are closing due to snow. That's how you know the storm is bad!! 😂🍷❄️ 3y

Omg. This book. So first of all, I did not think this was going to be my kind of book - I don't like soccer, and I generally don't like "older man" books. I do however very much enjoy "slow burn" romances, and this one absolutely fits the bill. I have a total #bookhangover from this, and I'm not even mad about it. Now time to plow through Zapata's backlist #romantsy

tapgurl I'm always afraid to admit I don't like soccer!!! People get their kids into it here and I was always a dance mom! 3y

I really enjoyed this! I felt like it's a total reset button for KA! Her most recent books in her ongoing series have felt a little repetitive, like she's been burning out. She told us all that she absolutely had to write this book, the story demanded to be told, and I can see that. I can feel it in her writing. I didn't love the female MC, but I got caught up in the story. I cannot wait for book 2 now!

Ok fellow KA Littens, I pulled the trigger and one-clicked this (even though I'm not finished with my stalker-spreadsheet of her backlist ?) and I'm 25% into it. I want to know your thoughts so far!! Here are mine - Amélie is absolutely not the typical KA female lead, I'm not connecting with her well so far, but Olivier is ? so I'm going to see where we end up. She spent a TON of time world building at the beginning so hopefully it'll pay off!

Bambi_Unbridled I had difficulty connecting to Amelie, but it was a fascinating read. 3y
Pinkmeghan @Bambi_Unbridled I just finished, and I totally agree. I'm feeling like this was KA's reset button of a book, her last few in the Colorado Mountain and Chaos series have felt a bit stale, this ended up reinvigorating me for her books! 3y

Suet624 I kind of did. Left an all-consuming job to be a nanny. Nap times give me time for some quick reading. And children are just the best to hang out with. 3y
Pinkmeghan @Suet624 that sounds amazing!! 3y
tpixie @Pinkmeghan I really should start today with a stand in. I just casually looked at my calendar and realized I have a meeting in one hour !!!! so much for my designated reading time today! 3y
tpixie @Suet624 good for you !!! sometimes I wish I were brave enough to quit my job and start babysitting my grand child! So far I haven't been brave enough. Afraid to lose my income 3y
Suet624 @tpixie just saw your response after reading your note to me on another post. The income thing is an issue for sure. However, I was miserable and browbeaten for years as a civil servant. I have never been happier since I started doing this. I'm about to take on a 3 month old baby as well and I couldn't be happier. Babies. That's my special superpower, being with babies. 3y

I got Caraval from my library network, then decided to just buy my own copy (re-reading before book 2, etc). So I returned the library copy yesterday, only to discover today that they never checked it back in, and just sent it on. So now the system is going to assume I still have it (and assess fines once it's overdue) and I have to wait in limbo for it to get to its home library. This is the second time this year! Frustrated!!!

CrowCAH Oh no; they gots to fix that! Fines are bad 😐 3y
DGRachel I'd fight that fine. 3y
PurpleyPumpkin So annoying!😤This picture captures this perfectly BTW. 😂 3y

Pinkmeghan @CrowCAH @DGRachel they won't end up making me pay the fine, but unfortunately I'll have to call the other library until it comes back in to make sure they check it back in. Can you tell this already happened to me in the fall? 🙄 I thought I was sooooo smart not using the book return box anymore but physically giving it to someone. Joke's on me! 😂 3y
Audrey I bet it's bc the person who checks in the book didn't scan it properly. 3y
Pinkmeghan @Audrey I think so because I returned another book at the same time and that one got checked back in. 😭 3y
DivineDiana Oh no! 😬 3y
minkyb A nightmare! 3y
Lmstraubie Ugh! Frustrating!!! 😣 3y

It took me forever to actually read this - no library had it available! So the first half of the book d-r-a-g-g-e-d but once Willow was united with her sisters it perked up. I'm glad I didn't return it unread to the library like I almost did yesterday. 😂

The Princess Diarist | Carrie Fisher

Pickpick

I persevered and finished, and I'm calling it a pick because it's her last book 😭 so it's worth reading regardless. Carrie Fisher was a fascinating, complicated, clever woman and the world is a lesser place without her in it. I do find her affaire with Harrison a bit sad (it seemed like he didn't really even like her, and how is that even possible?!) and I think that the incident at the party was not 💯 innocent. But #thankyougeneralorgana 💔

My hold for this finally came in today, so obviously I started it! I feel like this is not going to be a popular opinion, but so far I'm not loving it. Real talk: I adore Carrie, and I adore her other non-fic I've read so far. This one feels a bit squicky to me. The "Carrison" affair is literally the entire book, and let's just say the liaison does not start on a high note for me. I'm going to continue on, so I'll let you know.

ReadingEnvy I like her actual diaries that you get to eventually. I mean they made me cringe but they seem so true to a young girl who has no idea of reality.... 3y
Pinkmeghan @ReadingEnvy I'm just having a hard time getting past the crew getting her drunk and planning to "abduct" her but she says 40 years later nothing would have happened. ? 3y
Vexingcircumstance I have it but haven't read it yet. It being based on and featuring her former diaries I assumed it be different than her other books and she didn't intend it to be her last book (I don't think) but I also imagine she thought those diaries could easily end up public eventually unless she destroyed them. So she did the opposite and published them herself. Which seems very her. Lol. 3y

SaraFair Good to know. Which other one should I start with? 3y
Pinkmeghan @Vexingcircumstance this absolutely does not feel like it was intended to be her last book, you're right. 😭 And it does have a different feel than her other books, less glib. 3y
Pinkmeghan @SaraFair I started with Wishful Drinking, I would consider that my favorite of her books that I've read so far, it's a good place to start. 3y

Re-reading some of Book 7 for some courage. Neville never disappoints. 😍

OrangeMooseReads I think Neville is my favorite character in all the books. 3y
Pinkmeghan @OrangeMooseReads I agree! He's the best! I love how he grows as a character! 3y

I remember absolutely adoring Eloise as a little girl, so I was delighted when I had a chance to reread it this weekend to the sweet 3-year-old who made me an auntie. I've literally been waiting for this for the entire 3 years she's been on this planet! And I was super grateful she doesn't know how to read yet, since I had to make major edits! (Apparently this really was written for "precocious grownups" ?) @mrsmarch

mrsmarch Hard to believe we are #litposting about the same 3 year old this weekend! 😁 3y
SheilaChew I loved reading this to my kids when they were little too! 3y
Pinkmeghan @mrsmarch at least I heavily edited Eloise's hijinks! We skimmed right over pretending to be sick for example! 3y
Pinkmeghan @SheilaChew it was so fun! I had forgotten a lot of it! 3y

Wait, whut? Is that a real thing? Oh Lord Gooooogle...?

CherylDeFranceschi Ummm, 🤔 3y
Pinkmeghan @CherylDeFranceschi @Books4brittany A google search has revealed that it actually might be true! Lady Caroline Lamb, Byron's lover who allegedly coined the "mad, bad, and dangerous to know" nickname, was the daughter of the Earl of Bessborough, and may have sent Byron a snip of her "nether hair" in a gold locket just before they broke up! #crazyexgirlfriendftw 3y

cathysaid It is now my mission to work the phrase "nether hair" into a conversation. ? 3y
Pinkmeghan @cathysaid a noble goal, indeed! 🙌👏💯 3y

CoverToCoverGirl @cathysaid let us all know how that conversation goes 😂... things might get hairy! 😜 3y
