Why didn't I read this earlier??
It's really just as good as everyone told me! And definitely gave me that Hunger Games vibe (I was told it's different vibe in 2nd book) but with #SciFi elements and took place in Mars and galaxy far far away😆 Love the characters and the world building! Fast paced and action packed! What a Brilliant first book! 4.5⭐️/5

Let‘s start off by #FriYayIntro
1. Read the tagged book early this year and I just hated how the teachers acted in the book! So frustrated by the plot I had to DNF 😅
2. Earlier seasons of Big Bang Theory, Will & Grace, & Everybody Loves Raymond 😆 (I am trash for sitcom)
3. Had Croissant 🥐 & Coffee this morning ☕️
4. Sydney, so it‘s Australian Eastern Time Zone (Friday night right now)
5. The Grey Poppy 🤘🏼

Totally just went to the library for ONE book only! Need to get the 2nd book of the series just in case, but somehow all the other books wanted to come home with me too!! 😆🙈 Don‘t ask me how did that happen? 🤷🏻‍♀️🙄 #NotMyFault
BTW, didn‘t know #ThePoppyWar is that Big & not #YA?😅

Reggie Omg this is how Litsy is for me, last week some day I added 10 books to my TBR and i was like when the hell am I gonna read those. That was just one day!!! Lol 4mo

So, my library only has the 2nd & 3rd book of the series, I tried to request a purchase for the first book, but they told me I‘d need to pay a fee if the library approve such purchase! Guess I might as well buy my own copy using my birthday gift card & bonus point from Dymocks, right? 🤷🏻‍♀️
p.s. I‘ve started it yesterday & I CANNOT PUT IT DOWN!! Just went to library to check out the 2nd book😆

GrilledCheeseSamurai Such a great series! 🤘 4mo
BooknerdsLife @GrilledCheeseSamurai I can totally see it becoming one of my favourite too 😱 4mo
Sweetkokoro That‘s such a weird system at your library. At mine we are allowed to suggest books and if our suggestions get picked we get first hold on a copy. Why would they charge a fee for someone requesting they look into getting a book. That‘s so odd. 4mo
LibrarianRyan that is a screwed up library policy. It's part of a series. I can understand not buying the next book in a series, but not buying the first book in a series they own the rest of. Ugh Then charging you if they do order it. A** backwords. 4mo

Oh this one! I have such mixed feeling about it! So raw & heartbreaking yet frustrating at times! I see why all the love or not so much love for this one! I was so frustrated about the lack of communication between the two MC during the whole book (Probably why there‘s no Quotation marks? IKR!) Yet, I can't help but love them so much. The way Rooney tells a story about strugglig & mental illness struck me in the heart! #24B4Monday #readathon

Andrew65 This one certainly gets mixed reviews. 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Andrew65 Yes, it‘s interesting to read one of those books that gets polarising reviews. This one probably due to its particular tone or style of writing 🤔 4mo

The Bride Test | Helen Hoang
post image

Another book finished during #24B4Monday #readathon
A fun #RomCom written by another Asian author. The beginning of the book was a little too cringy for me when the "mail ordered bride" Esme was trying to seduce Khai, who is with autism (so his mom went back to Vietnam to find him a wife). The plot seems bit extreme yet predictable but overall, its a lighthearted fun #romance & smutty at times, with touch on subject like immigrant & autism. 3.5⭐️

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 4mo

So proud &excited to see more Asian writers in #YA #Fantasy with diverse & #LGBTQ characters & stories based on Asian #folklore these days. And a first w/w romance I've read. I really wish I could love this more, especially when so many people seem to love! But I just couldn't connect with the MC & the writing didn't do anything for me either. Maybe I'm just not in the right mood.Bailed at 50% #24B4Monday #Readathon

When Carrie found out her husband is cheating on her with David's wife, she decided to tell David thru letters & developed a friendship with each other...
This one just proved again what a genius of a writer she is! Told entirely in the format of letters, yet the characters came alive & story feels completed with twist & emotions. I wish &can totally picture it developed into a full length novel 😍❤️ LOVE IT! 5⭐️/5

julesG I'm looking forward to immersion reading Strange the Dreamer. The narrator, Steve West, is one of my favourite narrators of all time. I've listened to a lot of contemporary (steamy) romance novels just because he was (one of) the narrator(s) 4mo
julesG Forgot to say, for contemporary romance he goes by the pen name Shane East. (shouldn't we call it a mic-name then?) 4mo

Didn‘t realise I don‘t have many white books at all! Love the movie adaptation of Breakfast At Tiffany‘s too much I‘m scared to read the book since it‘s not exactly the same and I‘m afraid I will end up not liking Holly Golightly from the movie 🙈 But one day, I will be brave enough to read it! 😅

Hot Fudge Murder | Cynthia Baxter
post image

It's a sweet #CozyMurderMystery with different flavours of ice cream & trivia in the book. It‘s a slow paced mystery with lots of talking & “walking” around trying to get to the scoops & sub plot of love triangle going on that I‘m not a fan of 🙄Overall, not much action & not as delicious as the blurb sounds but a good palate cleanser like sorbet. Not dying to read her next book but I will if there‘s nothing else to read😆

“I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.”
#ColorMePretty #BlackAndBlue
One of my favourite #Classics that took me by surprise. It‘s beautiful yet heartbreaking. About a man trying to play god & then turned his own back to his creation, while the creature just wanted to be understood & loved!

“All the diversity, all the charm, and all the beauty of life are made up of light and shadow.” ~ Leo Tolstoy
Tolstoy totally captured my heart with his beautiful writing (assuming translations did his books justice) I cannot recommend this enough! It‘s more than a love story, it‘s also about family & choices you make in life. Amazing how it‘s still relevant now as it was then! #LetsTravelJuly #Russia #Quotes #bookquote #PenguinClassics #booknerd

Starting this one today since I saw #MuseOfNightmare (the 2nd book of the series) on sale yesterday, & l couldn‘t resist that beautiful sprayed edge! 😍❤️ I usually take off the jacket when reading a hardcover, that‘s why I made that changeable bookcover last night, so I won‘t ruin the spine 😅
Do you read with or without the book jacket?

I have very sweaty hands, so sometimes when I read a hardcover without its jacket, the words on the bookspine got rubbed off afterwards. Last night I‘ve decided to hand sew (hate using sewing machine) my first #bookcover to protect the book & listen to this fun lovely #audiobook while doing so! This book never gets old! Not the best needle work but at least I can read my hardcover with ease☺️

Been wanting to read this epic tale but still waiting to be in the right mood to fully enjoy the writing. And I‘m still looking through different translations to find the one that suit me. I don‘t want to rush but slowly enjoy every details of it .
Are you picky when it comes to translation too? Or just me?

Reminded me of this #Fantasy series & first book I‘ve read by VE Schwab. About parallel Londons including Red, Grey & Black London. I was hooked by her writing & magical world building but most of all the characters she created! You might get hooked by the adventure but stay for the villains you‘d end up rooting for!

lorannen @julesG Posts About Your Books doesn't go by edition, I believe. If you've stacked a copy that matches title and author, you'll see the post. In fact, Litsy doesn't really have the concept of separate editions - in theory, the idea was to have one profile for each book (covering all editons). There are some duplicated records still out there, but this is part of our efforts to bring all duplicate records together in Litsy. 4mo
julesG @lorannen Thank you! Now this makes sense. Is there any way users could help getting rid of duplicates? Like flag a book when we notice there's more than one entry in the database? 4mo

Lady_Tigana_20 @BooknerdsLife, I‘m glad you tagged it because I was like, “Oh, I can read that. THE GREAT GOD FAN. God fan? What‘s a god fan? Oh, PAAAANNNN. That makes much more sense.” 😂 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Lady_Tigana_20 Hahahaaa 😂🤣🤣 I can‘t stop laughing reading your comment!!!! Glad I could help 😆👏🏼 ...apparently this God Pan didn‘t get many good reviews 🙈 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Freespirit The synopsis sounds intriguing & unlike her other books! I‘m excited about it ☺️ 4mo

#Red #ColorMePretty
Read this when it was first published. Another one of those award winner book that I‘m not a big fan of, I did enjoy the reading experience but ...I found this a little overhyped 🙈

LapReader The Lessons by her was fantastic. 4mo
Amiable I agree —I rated it a “so-so” because I was a bit disappointed after the hype. 4mo
BooknerdsLife @LapReader Awww I will put that on my TBR 🙌🏼Thank you! 💖🤗 4mo

BooknerdsLife @Amiable Awww so relieved to know I‘m not the only one! 😅 Same! After all the hypes around the book, I was underwhelmed 4mo
Amiable @BooknerdsLife I think if I had gone into it blind without having heard anything about it, I might have liked it more. My expectations were just too high, I believe. 4mo

East of Eden | John Steinbeck

My favourite #OrangeAndBlack books have to be this #PenguinClassic #Orange edition! I've only one out of this stack, but I can't wait to read them all! Thinking of East of Eden next ...Which one would you suggest for me to read next?

BarbaraJean Soooo pretty!! 😍 I‘d recommend East of Eden—my favorite of what I‘ve read by Steinbeck, and a perfect summer chunkster read! 4mo
BooknerdsLife @BarbaraJean Awww Thank you🥰💖 I love Steinbeck‘s writing too & this one is definitely on top of my TBR too 😊 Great idea of a summer read 🙌🏼 Thanks 😘 4mo

BooknerdsLife @CarolynM Awww Thank you for the hashtag 🙌🏼💖 I didn‘t realise there was a buddy read til it was too late. But will definitely look into the discussions when I read it. :) xx 4mo
BooknerdsLife @LiterRohde That would be my second choice 😄👍🏼 Been wanting to reading for years! 4mo

Finished this the other day & love it! Its been such a thrill (like riding an emotional roller coaster!) reading this action packed sequel to #LIFELIKE
This time it focuses mainly on the character LemonFresh with few new characters & if you Love the Xmen/MadMax vibe last time, you'd definitely love this one. As usual, #JayKristoff tends to feed his dark soul off his readers tears! 😆 So...Be prepared! 5/5

BooknerdsLife @CarolynM OMG Yesss! It‘s one of my favourite 😋😋 So good!!! Wishing you a great weekend & maybe with some yummy Char Kway Teow too 🙌🏼💖 4mo

#ColorMePretty : #Gold
Nothing is more Gold than this book on my #TBR shelf! And it also happens to be one of the prettiest. And you should see it without the jacket too! I'm just glad that Not all book covers are this gorgeous, otherwise I'll be broke! ...I mean more broke than now 😅
TBH I'm nervous about reading this one, hope it's as good as #SixOfCrows which I Love!

#Fantasy #Booknerd #bibliophile #bookworm #bookcover #coverlove #readerslife

Sweetkokoro This was a popular book for gold (I even used it) there must not be a lot of gold books out there haha. 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Sweetkokoro Hahaaa Yes 😄 I just liked a few posts of the same book 🤗💛 It‘s the first book that pop in my head, I don‘t have anything as gold as this one 🤣 and I guess since it‘s quite recent by a popular author too 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Sweetkokoro BTW I LOOOOVE your photos! They are so beautiful 😍 4mo
Sweetkokoro It‘s the only fully gold book I have haha, so it was also the first thing and only thing to pop into my head. Also thank you that means so much to me, I put a lot of work into my photos! Also I really love how this photo turned out, I love the wooden hand. 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Sweetkokoro Hahaaa same! 😂 The whole design is just so gorgeous! Awww you‘re welcome & thank you so much too 😘💖🙏🏼 4mo

Finished this 600pages collection of #Shadowhunters novella. It's a collection of short stories of Jem from #TheInfernalDevices throughout the century to find the lost Herondale, so there are lots of characters & children of the characters we love throughout the book. It's not her best work but it sure warms your heart reading them. Ive gotten so emotional during a few.
3.5/5 read

Besides the ones I haven‘t finished in June, here‘s My new #CurrentRead for July. I‘m sure I‘ve read it back in high school centuries ago! 😂 But TBH I don‘t remember much 😆 So it‘s good to read it again with this new edition 📚💚 And I can‘t wait for the movie #DoctorSleep (Love the book!)
Will you be watching the movie?

scripturient I recently bought the same edition because I want to reread the book. I read it in high school as well i.e. what seems like a lifetime ago. :) 5mo
BooknerdsLife @Jari-chan Yes! Love all his older works! I remember being really scared by this one too 😆🙈 5mo
BooknerdsLife @TrishB Same here! I still haven‘t watched the Shinning the movie 😂🙈 But really love the book Dr Sleep & so am curious about it this time 😁 5mo
BooknerdsLife @scripturient Happy reread to you 🙌🏼📚💚 😂😂Hahaaa I‘m sure I‘m much older ...everything from high school are just a bit hazy...kind of a blur to me now 😂😂 5mo
rretzler I read his first several books when they came out and then I think somewhere in HS outgrew the horror genre. I would also like to read Dr Sleep though because I did enjoy The Shining. My favorite King by far though is 5mo
JennyM You have the perfect set up there! 5mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Hi Eliza! Do you have an email which you download your kindle books? 5mo
scripturient @BooknerdsLife LOL! I know what you mean. 🤣 I‘m 43 so yes, high school is a bit of a blur by now. 🤣🤣 5mo
BooknerdsLife @rretzler Same! I haven‘t read any Kings books for many years til Doctor Sleep and really loved it! Hope you‘ll enjoy it too 🤗 Ah! I have The Stand in my bookshelf for years but too intimidated to read it yet 😆 4mo
BooknerdsLife @JennyM Thank you 😄💕💖 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Jee_HookedOnBookz Hello Jee my sweet friend 🤗💕 How are you doing? Yes I do have a few email add for my Kindle ... here‘s one : eliza.cheung_85dec9@kindle.com 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Jee_HookedOnBookz or does it has to be the one I normally receive my books from? 🙈 4mo
BooknerdsLife @scripturient 😂😂😂 Exactly! 4mo
rretzler Other than the fact that The Stand is a chunkster, it‘s not scary like a lot of his other work. It‘s really more of a dystopian SciFi novel with elements of the supernatural happening mainly in the second half. I‘ve always liked the book, but felt that some of the supernatural stuff could have been left out and the book would have been a perfect dystopian work. 4mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @BooknerdsLife the one that you get your ebooks ☺️ 4mo
BooknerdsLife @rretzler Hahaa it‘s the size of the book that scares me off reading it 😅🙈That tomb of a book is quite intimidating 😅 4mo

How‘s everyone‘s #24B4Monday #Readathon ?
Weekend usually is the busiest for me, so only got 14:30hrs reading time but I‘ve finished 2 great books & started 2 new ones while making a dent in my current read, so I‘m pretty happy about it. 🤗
Remember: Reading should be fun & Not a chore!

Finished first book for #24B4Monday #Readathon last night & I Absolutely LOVE this book! TBH I was pleasantly surprised by it. I don't usually like Romance novels but this one is well written and it also deals with stalking, gaslighting & abusive relationships, even tho the plot is little predictable. It's funny and heart warming.

In case you‘re wondering, this is the book I brought home (from the Street Library). Never seen this edition before! It has all my 3 of my favorite #Horror #Classics in one! And an intro by #StephenKing ?! 😱 Going to reread one of the stories in October for Halloween 🎃
Do you like any of these? Which one would you read?

sudi I finished reading all three of these this year. And i have to say Frankenstein and Dracula were two of my favorites. 5mo
Hufflepuffle Dracula is my favourite but I need to re-read all three!! 5mo
BooknerdsLife @sudi Awww that‘s awesome! I read them all at different time but same! I can‘t choose between Dracula & Frankenstein love them both! 5mo

Spotted some books in the #Wild the other day while visiting my daughter‘s Uni and they have this street library near the day care centre there. It‘s so gorgeous and have some nice books, both adult and kids books too. So I took one home & returned with more today 🤗 I love seeing books in their wild habitats 😆
Do you have a street library near you?
