In my quest to become a #wellreadwoman, I signed up for #ReadingEurope2020. I've not attempted a year long challenge before, so I like the idea of a low pressure one. I can make this as simple or as difficult as I want for myself. I think I will set a low goal for myself...probably only 1-2 books per month. I need to check my #tbrshelves for selections I already own! More information can be found on the hosts' feeds. @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB

This fantasy series is a lot of fun with such complex, interesting characters. Admittedly, it took me a little longer to get sucked into this one than it did for The City of Brass, but once I was hooked, the story didn't let go. I'm looking forward to the final installment which is due out in a few months. #fantasy #magic #trilogy #strongfemalecharacters #bookmap

Not book related:
I realized I have not posted an update on Gimli for a couple months. And we have come a long way since then! Back then, he was 4mo old and only weighed about 2 pounds, was healing from pelvic and femur fractures, had a terrible upper respiratory infection, and we thought his liver was not working. Now, he's a sassy 6mo old who is mostly healthy. We're still fighting the URI, but everything else is perfect! 💕 #catsoflitsy

Misery | Stephen King
post image

I remember being completely terrified by this movie as a teen. I've always been more frightened by scary stories without supernatural elements. For some reason, it has taken me this long to actually pick up the book.

A question to ponder:
Have any of you been tempted to "Go all Annie Wilkes" on a favorite author because of a twist or character death you didn't expect? ?
#stephenking #completecatalogue #thriller #captive #thriftbooks

UnidragonFrag 😂😂 I have definitely felt something close to that! Haven't read this one, but the movie is pretty creepy. 2w
cherinium @UnidragonFrag Are you willing to share the name of the author(s) that made you feel that way? 🧐 2w

An emotional look at women in the military, past and present. Emily is driven to disguise herself as a man to serve along side her brother during the Civil War. Larkin is a veteran learning to live again as a civilian after 2 deployments to Afghanistan. Through Emily's diary, Larkin begins to cope with her PTSD and finds a way to enjoy life again. Thoroughly researched, Estes brings to life some "badass" women whose stories deserve telling. ??

I got confetti! 🥳🥳 I officially completed my Goodreads challenge of 75 books with this intriguing nonfiction book. I was fascinated by the true crime and fanaticism within the FLDS church that was examined by Krakauer. The history covered and trying to keep the many characters straight was sometimes a slog, but if you enjoy reading about religion, cults, or true crime, be sure to give this one a whirl. #goodreadschallenge #goalcompleted #success

A fun Sci-Fi/Horror, but it left me wanting more. Despite hearing that this book was terrifying, I didn't find it to be scary at all. I suppose it just didn't hit any of my triggers. Definitely now what I was hoping it would be.

Us Against You | Fredrik Backman

Everything I loved about Beartown was just beaten to death in the sequel. I finished it out of love for the characters, but really just wish Backman had left it alone. All of his insightful observations about human nature grew tired very quickly this time around. Very disappointed. #audible #audiobook #unpopularopinion #nosequelneeded 🏒🏒🏒

Uh...you just lost me, Mr. Cutter. ?

Extinction Kit? Really? I've been in the vet field for 22 years, and I've never once heard of Euthasol being packaged this way. And, perhaps a little research on dosing of Euthasol would have been a good thing. While 2.5cc is certainly more than enough for a Guinea Pig, it's definitely not enough to "flatline a Great Dane." #factcheck

Inaccurate information like this just completely rips me out of a story.

The Testaments: A Novel | Margaret Atwood
post image
Mehso-so

Exactly as I feared, this much awaited sequel was mostly a disappointment. It did hold my interest enough to not be a complete pan, but it certainly did not come even close to its predecessor. It seems to me that Atwood tried too hard to make the story align with things that have happened in the TV series. I am not one who felt all the questions needed to be answered, as they so clumsily were in this novel. #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #kindle

A Thousand Roads Home | Carmel Harrington
Mehso-so

I'm not quite sure how to rate this one. It is a heartwarming story that examines how important it is to get to know someone's story before passing judgement. A single mom with Asperger's and a homeless man with a tragic past share a remarkable bond that teaches them the true meaning of family. I can see this as a Hallmark movie, which is to say, it is definitely not for me. I think others would probably love it, so I'll bump up my pan to a so-so.

cherinium If you enjoy stories with happy endings and everything tied up into a neat little bow, please, check this one out. If you're cynical and jaded like me, you should probably pass. 2mo

I enjoy opportunities to read books that are out of my wheelhouse. Just past the 50 page mark, I'm concerned this one may be a bit too sappy for me. It seems like a quick read, though, so I'm going to see it through. Also, I still have gifts to unwrap as I continue through the story! #onceuponabookclub #booksubscription

I'm not quite sure how I feel about this sequel so far. I absolutely loved Beartown and was really looking forward this. At this stage, it's been nothing but rehashing what happened in Beartown. It's just not working for me, and I am terribly disappointed. Can anyone tell me that it has anything new to offer?

Megabooks I thought it was okay but not as good as Beartown. I wish he had just left it alone. 2mo
cherinium @Megabooks That is exactly what I've been thinking! Why did he have to revisit it to hammer home the same points? I personally thought the ending of Beartown was perfect. I don't think it needed anything more. 2mo
thewallflower0707 EXACTLY. He just said the same thing, the few storylines in the sequel were awfully similar to Beartown, only there was a lot more violence and some characters (the Pack, Vidar) I couldn‘t find myself to care about, thus losing the emotional impact of the ending. I loved how the author addressed the danger of toxic masculinity in Beartown but in the sequel it‘s just fist flying over fist flying 😤 2mo

Beneath a Scarlet Sky | Mark Sullivan
Pickpick

I was captivated by this fictionalized tale. While the author admits to embellishing the story, the thread of truth is there. I have seen a lot of comments and reviews that mention poor writing; but I have to admit, I didn't notice. Wondering if that has something to do with the fact that I listened to the #audiobook instead of reading a print copy. Regardless, I loved the glimpse into an Italian perspective on the second World War. Tissues needed

mmseiple The title makes me think of the book The Sky is Red by Giuseppe Berto - also set in WWII Italy, though it looks like the similarities end there. I wonder if there‘s a connection. 2mo

I've always had an affinity for this name (hence the name of my new kitten). I'm not sure if it's the name itself or the character that I love. But, it's been so long since I read LOTR, I didn't realize he isn't even mentioned in the 1st half of the book. I'm at the 60% mark, and this is his introduction. This is also the 1st appearance of Legolas. I'd forgotten how much happens BEFORE meeting these famous characters.

This book was enjoyable. I'm not quite sure it lived up to the hype, but it was fun to read.

In other news, my derpy boy is trying to pull himself up to the top of the messy bookcase. I'm sure there's something up there he wants to knock off, bc that's his thing lately. He has broken 3 custom made mugs recently, which breaks my heart. I cannot leave my tea on a table long enough to go pee. Ugh! #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #adventuresofthegmen

Scochrane26 My previous cat broke several glasses. I had lived w/ my parents briefly, & my cat & dad hung out in fam room, where dad let him knock over his glass. So, then I could never leave a cup unattended. Sorry for your mugs. Good thing he‘s cute. (edited) 3mo

The first couple chapters grabbed me and made me think I would love this book. Then, it revealed itself to be a sappy romantic ghost story. Definitely not my thing. The older I get, I find it harder and harder to stomach the sickeningly sweet love stories. You know the ones--a couple fated to be together, love stories that endure into death. Gag! 🤢 I stayed around for the murder mystery component, which was entirely too easy to figure out.

Pretty clever and entertaining format of a "video journal."I felt that the angst and drama from the protagonist was annoying, yet realistic for a middle school girl. What I did not find realistic for middle school kids was the plot. I kept having to remind myself that the characters were 13. If they had been 16, it would have been far more believable for me. I'm in between pick and so-so. #audibleoriginal #audiobook

This haunting memoir of mental illness and time spent in a psychiatric hospital kept me riveted and horrified. It hits a bit close to home, as I have a teenage niece struggling with mental illness and suicidal thoughts and actions. My heart just breaks for these young girls caught in the grip of their mental prisons. My only hope is that my niece's treatment is kinder than those of the late 60s shown in this book. #mentalillness #endthestigma 💔

I listened to this one. I wouldn't say I loved this book, but I did enjoy it. I'm intrigued by the psychology involved in cults.

As much as I wanted to, I didn't enjoy this first book in a trilogy. The world building and character development were lacking. The author had several pet phrases that were used repeatedly. Also, there were several typos that should have been caught during proofreading. I feel no need to continue the series.

For such a short little story, it packs a punch. We are given a glimpse into a powerful family dynamic as an Indian mother in Delhi desparately tries to arrange a marriage for her daughter living in LA.

Not a bad book, but not a great one, either. I typically enjoy books with multiple POV, but it didn't work for me this time. The shifts in perspective were abrupt and jarring. Also, the characters seemed pretty flat to me, and several of them were just plain annoying.
I was interested enough to keep reading, so it's not a complete pan; but I doubt it will have a lasting impression on me.

While I did find some places to be slow and repetitive, I ultimately really enjoyed the story of Clover Blue. Blue is a young boy living in a commune that is the only place he remembers. As he reaches the age when kids often start questioning the world, he becomes fixated on learning about his beginnings. Heartbreaking and at the same time, hopeful, this is a beautifully written book set in SoCA during the 70s. #family #tribe #love #identity

Actually.... baby snakes have less control of the amount of venom injected. Adult snakes have learned to not waste their valuable venom on bites that don't result in a meal, so adult venomous snakes deliver more dry bites.
Not to mention that the bitten character here is already showing symptoms of serious envenomation, so it seems silly to say that it could have been a dry bite. 😡
