Crying in H Mart: A Memoir | Michelle Zauner

Also, as someone who doesn‘t typically reach for nonfiction, Crying in H Mart absolutely blew me away. If you have experienced the loss of a parent especially, I highly recommend.

Looking back on my year and Remarkably Bright Creatures was definitely in my top favorites. Also revisited some old favorites in 2023.

It‘s been a long time…. But this one brought me back to Litsy! Anyone who has been through significant loss, especially a parent, this book will reach down and touch your heart. I loved this memoir. 5⭐️!

Okay, it‘s been a while. I fell into a hardcore slump. I finally finished my first book in 2021. I had a hard time getting into this and found some of it disappointing.... but damn was that climax fun. Turned it around for me in the end. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

BookNightOwl I started reading it and I couldn't get into it. I was really disappointed so I stopped reading it. Hoping to get inspired and pick it up later on. Since I paid money and bought it. 3y

Finished this series today. I wish there were more! Insane, exciting, sad. Loved the artwork. The plot reminded me of Dark Matter.

I really enjoyed these books. Has anyone watched the Miniseries? How did it measure up?

ItsAnotherJen Oooh..I did not realize it was a series! Is it on hulu? Just finishing up watching Sweet Magnolias so I needed something else to watch. 4y
ItsAnotherJen I guess it's only HBO. Shoot. 4y
Samwise_Gamgee @ItsAnotherJen yeah it was on hbo a few years back. Might have to check out HBOMax for this. 4y
Jinjer Both books are great and Frances McDormand is the Perfect Olive. Watch it if you can!!! 4y

My local library hosted trivia night and I wasn‘t sure how it would go, but it was so much fun. They‘re going above and beyond with the online program content for sure with lots of classes for crafting, cooking, painting, and they even mailed out surprise books!

What a wild ride. Felt long and dragged out in the beginning but as the story went on I began to appreciate the detail more. The last third or so was hard to put down. The story twisted in unexpected directions and the action was intense! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ .... but only because my Maas Standards are too high after #ACOTAR... excited for more in this series. 🌙 🌃
