I loved the first one a lot more, this sequel was more turned to the paranormal making it interesting. However the writing was at times very confusing especially in what I call “The Dream World”, but if you like this kind of genre give it a shot

Usually I love books like this one ( it‘s a thriller) but this one had some parts that dragged way too long and it took me some time to figure out where it all fit in but in the end it all made sense 😊 still a good read though

I know only the first book in the trilogy is represented here but I‘ve completed the whole series and I loved it!!! The writing is light and compelling and the plot is great if you love the fantasy genre or are into mythologies more specifically Norse Mythology since it‘s what this series focuses on.

Now I know why this book is a bestseller, I read it in a few days and couldn‘t put it down. Without revealing too much it certainly makes us question how things went down on the Titanic even though it‘s an entirely fictional work

Loved these! I‘ve been wanting to read these for years and now I read all of the books (7 of them) in just two weeks. They are clearly written for children, meaning the writing is simple but just as enjoyable as any other books.

Since it‘s world book day, it‘s only appropriate that I share the books I bought just now. In case you can‘t tell they are: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov; Frankenstein by Mary Shelly and Becoming by Michelle Obama. Happy World Book Day, Littens!!!

It‘s pretty obvious why this book is a bestseller. It‘s full of mystery and very well written. The descriptions of the death of the victims made me cringe a few times but I loved nonetheless. Fans of conspiracy theories and crimes: do not pass this one up

MoonWitch94 This looks like a great read! 8mo

I really liked this one. Wanted to read it for years but only now had the chance. It‘s a story about life, death, revenge and most importantly redemption 😍

Freespirit One of my absolute favourite books. So glad you enjoyed it! 9mo
Sophia1 @Freespirit I loved it. Took me some time to read it but it‘s an amazing story 😊 9mo

Today I downloaded the “Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge” and I have to say it looks great!! Of all the 339 books on the list I already managed to read 8! Crossed fingers I will get to “check” a few more of these in the next few weeks 🤞

TheWhiteHatter I have never heard of that, but my wife @GypsyKat and I are huge Gilmore Girls fans. I will have to check this out! Thanks for sharing 8mo
GypsyKat @TheWhiteHatter Oh Rory! ❤️❤️❤️ 8mo
Sophia1 @TheWhiteHatter and @GypsyKat You are welcome. I hope the two of you enjoy reading all of these just like I am 😊😘 8mo

GypsyKat @Sophia1 I just counted and I‘ve read 61. There are several that are on my TBR, and there are several that I‘ll never read. But it‘s fun to look back through Rory‘s life in reading. ❤️ 8mo
Sophia1 @GypsyKat Wow I‘m nowhere near that number but I‘ll get there ❤️ 8mo
GypsyKat @Sophia1 You can do it! Lots of the books on the list I read in school, so that was helpful. 8mo

Hello Littens! I would like to start using audio books, what app/website do you guys recommend? 🤔

HOTPock3tt I use the Scribd app. I like it ♥️ it cost $8.99/ month. Also you could check your local library‘s website and see if they have Hoopla which is free. You download the app and it lets you download 4 audiobooks from your library per month... 10mo
Sophia1 @HOTPock3tt Thank you 😊😘 10mo
AsYouWish I use the Overdrive app and get audiobooks using my library ID. 10mo

After a hard days work ( I work in a hospital), lots of Christmas shopping and cookie baking, my Christmas cheer is on high so there is no book more appropriate than this one ( It‘s also almost three a.m in Portugal, but who cares?) Merry Christmas everyone!! 🎄😌

HOTPock3tt Merry Christmas! 🎉 I work in a hospital too. Extra hugs for you and all of us working on Christmas weekend and thru the Christmas holiday ♥️ (edited) 12mo

If you haven‘t read any of Sherlock‘s Adventures please do. Sherlock and Watson are so well written. The entire book pulled me in and kept me guessing the entire time.

I find this quite similar in plot to Pride and Prejudice, which is natural since they are both by the same author. Regardless of any similarities it was still very well written and enjoyable.

Well, I usually love the classics but this one was definitely NOT my cup of tea. However it‘s still very well written and if you like classic literature then please give this one a try. That being said do you have any book recommendations fellow Littens?

Pavkris2204 Anna Karenina is definitely one you should try if you like classics. I personally think that it is a great book! You will love the characters and the story. It‘s like the perfect rainy day weather type of book. 🌧 📖 ❤️ 14mo
Sophia1 @Pavkris2204 Thank you 😊 I definitely will read it! 14mo

How do you stop a book hoarder from buying more books? Asking for a friend 😂😂

RaimeyGallant Try placing anything new you buy, here on in, on your nightstand? See if the lack of space annoys you? 1y
Sophia1 @RaimeyGallant Thanks, I‘ll try that because otherwise I‘ll keep buying them. I have a few dozens both on paperback and Kindle that I‘ve never read and yet today I bought 6 or 7 more 😳😂 (edited) 1y
mermer87 I have sooooo many I haven‘t read yet! I always tell myself I‘m going to read them before getting anymore but then there‘s a sale or a fave author comes out with something new or a library hold comes in and the stacks just keep getting bigger 😂 1y
