There‘s nothing better to do than stay at home on the couch and read a book when you‘re sick #readingwhenyouresick #quietday

The Help | Kathryn Stockett

Here are some of my favorite books of all time! I can remember distinctly where I was and what the weather was like. The Help was during the hot summer after I graduated high school, Jane Eyre was in a drizzly cold February month as I attended my favorite literature class, The Snow Child was when snowflakes were falling all around, and Emma was during a cleansing springtime rain. All were magical and hit me at the perfect time.

I have been looking for a copy of this book forever! It‘s never in stores and I‘ve had no luck at used bookstores either. Even Amazon‘s price for it was higher than what most mass paperbacks sell for. Tonight I was doing some gift shopping at Barnes and Noble and there it was! Naturally I treated myself to an early Christmas present 😊

Johanna414 I love her books! 2w
Theeclecticreader @Johanna414 I‘ve only read one of her books, Wildwood Dancing, and I loved it! This book caught my eye awhile ago and I knew I had to read it! 1w

I‘ve really been enjoying my Sunday with this delightful distraction! Total escapism. I‘m easily more than halfway done with it already and hoping I can get it done before bed tonight. I hope everyone had a great reading day!

So excited to have received my Waterstones edition of The Starless Sea today! I honestly can‘t tell which cover I like better.

Scochrane26 I‘ve realized recently that I need to pay attention to the Waterstones‘ editions, they‘re so pretty. 4w
Theeclecticreader @Scochrane26 I saw this through someone‘s feed on Instagram. There are three different colors of the book under the dust jacket: red, teal, dark navy. When you order it you don‘t know which one you‘ll get. I got the red one. 4w

Theeclecticreader @EliNeedsMoreShelves I think it was totally worth it. The side of the pages even had the key, bee, and sword stamped on. It‘s beautiful 😍 3w

JoyBlue Ooh—I love the Waterstones cover! Is it signed? I enjoyed the book so much that I suggested to my DH that I would happily accept a signed edition for the upcoming holidays (he has a favorite place to order signed editions). He bought it right that minute on his phone and gave it to me the day it arrived! Score! 📚💙 3w

Nute Does Waterstones ship outside of the UK? 3w
Theeclecticreader @Nute Yes they do! It takes a little longer and there‘s more for shipping but for a book like this it was worth it 😊 3w

Hi everyone! My name is Lindsey and I‘m brand new to Listy! I heard about this sight through a podcast called Well Read. When I heard it was basically Instagram for books I knew I had to check it out since I only ever use Instagram for book posts. I‘m really looking forward to joining this community because book people are the best people 😄

As a middle school teacher I really appreciate the fact that a great author like Gordon Korman went out of his way to write about a burnt out teacher handling a class of wild and crazy kids. Thank you for the dedication Mr. Korman! #middlegradebooks #readingteacher #teacherlife

My book haul from today! I have to thank the Well Read podcast for the suggestions. The Glass Woman, The Secrets We Kept, and The Library of the Unwritten were all books talked about in one of their latest episodes and I just knew I needed to grab them right away! The book suggestions I‘ve gotten from this podcast have yet to let me down. #bookhaul #bookpodcast

Reading this gem of a book. Love this author! I always learn something new from her. It‘s incredible that she finds different perspectives of history that aren‘t usually talked about or even taught in schools. I feel like a more well rounded person after delving into her stories. She makes you question what you do and do not know

ImperfectCJ I have this one on my shelf; this post makes me even more enthusiastic about reading it! 1mo
Theeclecticreader It‘s really good so far and I‘m not even a quarter of a way in! Have you read her other books? 1mo
Jillylovesbooks This one is on my TBR list. I‘ve never read anything by this author, but I‘ve seen this title make some of the “best of” lists. 4w

ImperfectCJ @Theeclecticreader I just saw this and realized that your comment might be addressed at me. I haven't read any of her other books, but I'm hearing really good things about her! 4w
Theeclecticreader @ImperfectCJ yes sorry! I forgot to tag you. She‘s a really great author so you can really start with anyone of her books 4w
Theeclecticreader @Jillylovesbooks I‘m not surprised! She‘s an amazing writer. All her books make the top of a lot of lists. I hope you enjoy it 4w

Loved this trilogy! I will say the third one is a bit of a let down after the first two but overall I highly recommend! Especially if you love dark Victorian tales filled with magic like me. You should also listen to the audiobook versions! Unfortunately only one and two exist. They never recorded book three 😞
