My friend brought back this amazing adorable Alice in Wonderland pin from Disney World for me and I love it! 💗

It looks so cute with my Barnes and Noble Classic 😊.

I had to drag my family into this bookstore when we were exploring this little town. This bookstore was packed full of books floor to ceiling! I walked away with The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware which has been on my reading list.

The Lost World | Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I write with a heavy heart, that I was unable to finish this book. The book had a slow pace with no real rush of adventure like I had hoped. And poor Mr. Malone was only seeking adventure to escape the friend zone. While I was excited to read this novel, I have to put it aside as I cannot continue with reading it. Maybe I'll try again someday. #didnotfinish

Starting this recommended non-fiction book today. It looks very promising and I'm excited to dive into this world of... murder! As well as its presence and influence on fiction! ☠️

"I don't like to throw the L-word around; it's too good and rare a feeling to cheapen with overuse" pg. 13

This book is off to a great start. I 100% agree with not carelessly throwing around the "L-word". I'm excited for what this book has in store.

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie
Pickpick

What a wonderful enthralling book. It was clever all the way through and left me guessing and assuming till the very end. This was the first novel I have read by Agatha Christie and I was totally satisfied by everything I have heard about her writings. I look forward to reading more from her!

It's been too long since I've read in bed by flashlight. Glad I'm able to spend it with my first Agatha Christie book! So far, I'm really enjoying it. #AgathaChristie #classic #nighttimeread #mystery

I can't remember everything about these books as it has been many years since I've read them, but just thinking of them gives me a content happy feeling so I must have enjoyed them! I remember reading them as fast as I could and absolutely loving these books. #childhood #lovethis #flashback

The movie was exact! I was really surprised and happy to read line-by-line sentences that were in the movie as well. This book was well written and maintained a good balance of science and life that made it realistic.

I got this book at the book store without realizing it was part of a series. Can I read this as a stand alone or should I read the other books?

The Great Gatsby | Francis Scott Fitzgerald
Mehso-so

For being a supposed American Classic, it didn't live up to the hype for me. It was an easy read but the overall story? Perhaps in its time it was more intriguing but now? This book is just the story of rich people's drama. Yes, there was symbolism behind literally everything, but as a reader and not a scholar, it wasn't for me.

The Lazarus Trap | Davis Bunn
Bailedbailed

Sadly had to bail on this book. The main character suffers from temporary amnesia and so he doesn't even know what is going on! This book just isn't moving fast enough and nothing is seeming to be resolved.

This book was good, not amazing, but good. It was slightly confusing but was written with good intent with a well thought out story to be told. Even though it was 'So-So' I am going to continue reading the series.

LiteraryinLititz I didn't realize this was part of a series! I'll have to look into that. My favorite Sophie Hannah books are her recentish new Hercule Poirot mysteries. 3y
ToriE18 @LiteraryinLititz yeah, I think the series will be quite interesting as it follows the detectives and each book features a different case! 3y

Almost halfway done but there is a lot of scientific terminology but it's still interesting and holds my attention. Can't wait to read further into the book.

This book was given to my sophomore class as an assignment for our world history class. Even though we all began reading this begrudgingly, I began to thoroughly enjoy this book even if it made me cringe at how they ran their society and were 'more equal than others'. This book is a classic I will never forget.

It is probably my fault, but I watched the first two movies before even picking the books up. I tried, but I got halfway through this book and got stuff and gave up. It was terribly slow! Maybe one day I'll try again but for now, it was a bust. ☹️

This book was intense with the characters constantly moving and in danger. It was exciting but the thrill wore out as the chases never seemed to end and even tired me out as the reader. But thankfully I pushed through and this has become one of my favorite books of the series as the ending is incredible. Don't give up on it! 👍
