Almost forgot to mention that I finished this book last night. I talked about it in the last episode of our #podcast, Bookish Impulses. Find it anywhere you listen to podcasts.
🙂👍🏽
It‘s a middle grade fairy tale story. Not your typical Prince Charming saves the damsel in distress. It‘s about 2 siblings who must run away to prevent Wynn, the sister, from being sold as a slave to their lord. There‘s evil creatures, fairies, changelings and more.

TheBookAddict It‘s part of a series. 2 books so far. I will be looking for the second book soon. 🙂👍🏽 (edited) 2w

Short and to the point, which is ok with me. Informative and a bit gross, but relevant. It had vibrant and clear pictures. It is part of our nonfiction books for students who are at a lower reading level.

One of the kids returned it today and as I was checking it in it caught my eye. I read it before I re-shelved it, while waiting for a class to show up. #nonfiction #animals

1.The community. How nice and respectful people are.
2.Food or other non book related stuff, unless it‘s an accomplishment or a celebration.
3.Being able to send private messages (but only if the user chooses to allow private messages).
4.As much as I can, if I have something book related to say.
5.Readathons, Swaps (small not very expensive ones), and questionnaires
6.It‘d be better if people actually commented on posts instead of just ♥️ them.

Insightsintobooks I agree, especially with 6. I need to work on that myself though. 😳 2w
TheBookAddict @Insightsintobooks thank you. Yes, me too. I‘ve been working on it myself. 2w
Texreader I agree with your number 6 and I try to post comments as often as possible. Especially when I see a great post that no one has commented on. 2w

ljuliel Perfect answer about commenting on posts. I think that might be the shovel that digs us out of this place we currently are. If we all took an extra few minutes to respond, ask a question, act INTERESTED in what others post, we‘d see a bit of greenery starting to grow in here again. Good job 👏🏻 👏🏻 (edited) 2w
TheBookAddict @Texreader right, I‘ve been trying my best after I started feeling like no one really read my posts. If felt like they were just scrolling and liking the picture and not caring about the words that went with it. I know I don‘t always comment, but I try to do it as often as possible. 2w
TheBookAddict @ljuliel thank you. I think so too, because many of us joined Litsy because we don‘t have others to talk to about books near us. The whole point is to talk to others about books we‘ve read, are currently reading, or would like to read. I know I can‘t talk to anyone except my husband about books and he doesn‘t usually read the books I read. The middle schoolers I work with don‘t want to listen to me talk about books, so I usually go to Litsy. 2w
Texreader I think you‘ve nailed it on getting more participation. This isn‘t Instagram where a ❤️ is enough. I love reading people‘s book reviews!! We need to let everyone know that! Thanks for the encouragement and motivation! 😘 2w
TheBookAddict @Texreader thanks. 😊 I also enjoy reading reviews and blurbs about books...which is why my TBR only gets bigger and bigger 🤦🏽‍♀️😅. You‘re welcome. Another reason why i love our #LitsyFamily, we can have an honest discussion about important things. 🙂👍🏽 2w
hermyknee *reads full post, all comments, then presses ♥️* guilty 🙋🏻‍♀️ 2w

TheBookAddict @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego 😆 not annoying at all. I welcome your comments, I just probably won‘t respond until I get home from work or during lunch. 2w
sprainedbrain I‘m guilty of what @hermyknee says, too. I don‘t like every post I see, but I promise I do read every post that I mark liked! Sometimes I just struggle to come up with some interesting to comment. 😂 2w
sprainedbrain @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I worry about that when I‘m commenting a lot, too! Are people annoyed by all of ‘great review!‘ and ‘oh I love that book‘ comments. 😂 2w
TheBookAddict @sprainedbrain well, I personally don‘t mind comments. If I liked I the post but I have nothing to say I‘ll add an emoji or two that depict what the post made me feel. I don‘t know if anyone else is ok with that though. I know I don‘t mind it on my posts. 2w
Chrissyreadit I‘m a sucker for reading book posts and comments but I do not always comment myself. Sometimes a just want to see what others are thinking. I do not like every post either, sometimes I scroll by. 2w
Sace @Texreader "this isn't Instagram" THANK YOU. To me that also means it's OK if there are lulls. Because that's genuine and life sometimes gets in our way. I'm starting to feel like I'm in an alternate universe because frankly I had not noticed a drop off in posts or a huge change in likes or comments I receive. 2w

My #LibraryFinds from Saturday. I didn‘t post this earlier because I was super busy on Saturday with laundry and some sewing. We were going to Dollar Tree for a quick stop for some essentials and I turned on Pokémon Go to hit some stops on the way and one of the stops across from DT was a library branch we didn‘t even know was there. So we did what any reasonable human being would do and we went into the library to scope it out. We liked it! ??

TheBookAddict It‘s a small branch, way smaller than the one we usually go to, but it‘s closer to us and it‘s quiet. I had to get these books when I saw them in the “new arrivals” shelf (except for Raven Boys - I looked for that one). I‘m going to sound like a total nerd, but I‘ve only heard of “The Shadow King” in an episode of the XMen cartoons when Storm goes back to Africa to find out what‘s going on with her people and a kid she fostered/adopted. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 2w
TheBookAddict @MrBook I think I‘ve found my TBR pile for your #LitsyPartyofOne #Readathon! I‘m so excited to get to read these! Have you read or heard anything about these books? #LitsyLovesLibraries 2w

Perfect Sunday evening after putting laundry away and sewing some of my pants that were a bit too big. Yesterday I went and got some Halloween snacks from Walgreens, since they were 50% off 😁. 🧺 🧵 👖

I usually don‘t read ebooks, but it‘s a #netgalley so I can‘t complain. A good mystery so far. 🙂👍🏽 📖

This is what our Halloween looked like yesterday, only with quite a bit more snow since it accumulated throughout the day. So we just stayed home and read all evening. Just living the dream in the Midwest. 😆

An emotional rollercoaster of a story that gives the reader a glimpse into immigrants‘ lives. Mbue does a great job of sharing each character‘s point of view. I finished it last night at 11:55 at night...I just couldn‘t put it down. Needless to say, I am a bit tired today. We also had our first snow of the season during the night.

3.Since it‘s cold out I usually go for hot chocolate, tea, or coffee and cookies.

Definitely enjoying this one! I managed to evade all spoilers before reading it. I didn‘t even read the synopsis and I had forgotten what i read in the first 92 pages the first time I started it, so it was brand new to me. Not what I expected, but in a good way. Mystery, fantasy, and creepy. All in all, a good October read. Can‘t wait to see what happens next on September 3rd, 1940.

A #mustread for everyone, whatever your thoughts or views on the lgbtq+ community. A heartbreaking retelling of what happened on bus 57 in Oakland, what led to those events, and what preceded them. The author does a great job at sharing both sides of the story and the flaws in our “justice” system.

TheBookAddict @Butterfinger right! I knew it was bad, but I didn‘t know it was that bad. 😔 2mo

Yestetday I started and finished listening to this heartbreaking and uplifting memoir by JVN. I love Queer Eye even though I cry while watching every episode. The Fab 5 are wonderful individuals who do so much for others. JVN is open and honest about his struggles, accomplishments, and aspirations in this memoir. I definitely love her more after listening to this. Yes queen, do you!!!💕💕💕 #JVN #QueerEye #diversebooks #LGBTQ #QueerBooks #memoir

When you‘re making sure all books have a genre label and you happen upon the section that contains your not-so-favorite author and his not-so-great series (in your opinion), you take a deep breath and remind yourself that they are still books and you love books and you will take care of them anyway. 😬😪

ravenlee I‘ve never read Patterson, but what I know of him from his idiotic tv commercials makes me loathe him. 2mo
LibrarianRyan Every once in a while he makes some great. But most of the time it‘s status quo 2mo
TheBookAddict @ravenlee I liked his earlier books, Along Came A Spider stands out to me when I think of something good by him. I don‘t know what I‘d think of it if I read it now. Yes, his commercials are ridiculous. I liked the idea, but I didn‘t like the execution when it came to this series. It was torture reading the books. I wanted to know what happened to the characters, but I was in the middle of book 3 when I gave up, since it was going nowhere. 😔 2mo

TheBookAddict @ravenlee he was also throwing jabs and insinuating that his books were better than others, within this series. In particular the HP series among others. 2mo
TheBookAddict @LibrarianRyan right, it‘s quite disappointing. It seems to me like he shoots for quantity not quality. I haven‘t read all of his books, but from the ones I‘ve read, I would say that his earlier books were better. 2mo
ravenlee Once he started churning out multiple books per year, with “co-authors” in very small print, I figured he was pretty much done. Makes me wonder if his “collaboration” consists of throwing out a title and maybe a scenario, then leaving the other writer with all the work. 2mo
TheBookAddict @ravenlee right, especially since he does have those courses he charges for and the perk is that at the end you get to coauthor a book with him. 🤦🏽‍♀️ and he boasts so much about how many books he writes in a year, even though he doesn‘t write them by himself. 2mo

I‘m back!!! I‘ve been MIA for a while, not by choice but because of life. Towards the end of August Kenny was at the ER due to mold poisoning. We then had to try to find a new home ASAP due to the mold. This all happened while I was beginning work again. We still have boxes everywhere, but we are slowly but surely getting situated. I‘ll be happy when my books are all up on the shelves. 🤓 📚💕

This book reads like a documentary.

AmyG Hope he is well soon...and you are all settled in soon! (edited) 2mo
