Considering I read this book in less than 48 hours… that‘s enough to say I am obsessed! Absolutely captivated by the sheer intensity between characters and looking forward to reading more. #LitsyLoveReads

KristiAhlers I adore this series and the Crescent City series. I'm currently reading her Assains series. She's an auto buy for me. 3w
corireadslife @KristiAhlers I‘ve read the first two in her Throne of Glass series and found them good but ACOTAR is just amazing! Can‘t wait to keep reading. It‘s good to hear you are enjoying all her books - I will need to add Crescent City to my TBR! 3w
Clwojick The next one is so goooooood! I‘ve only read the first three, but it‘s easily my favourite. 3w

Camp Zero | Michelle Min Sterling
post image
Pickpick

Finished up Camp Zero and can say it was pretty darn good! The author tells the story from three different POVs and ties them together beautifully! My one complaint is that the ending was so abrupt. I didn‘t understand the urgency to end the story and was left feeling like “What? That‘s it?” But overall, it‘s a good one! #LitsyLoveReads

Listening along with Reese Witherspoon‘s book club. Not the worst of all reads but at times, I kind of wished I was listening to something else. Didn‘t see the ending which was a redeeming quality for me 📖 #LitsyLoveReads

January 2023 is off to a strong start with some really good reads, Lessons in Chemistry being one of them. An easy 5🌟 for me because it was just so good. I felt connected to Elizabeth, her experiences, and her thoughts. In addition, Mad and Six-Thirty were amazing! ❤️

Signal Fires by Dani Shapiro earned 3 🌟 from me. It was very middle of the road, not bad but not amazing. I can see why some people love it but I found it hard to feel attached to the characters and wasn‘t left with any sort of emotion.

I started The Sign for Home a few months ago and then wrapped it up yesterday. Honestly, I‘m regretting it took me so long. Arlo, a DeafBlind man, decides to take a writing class which leads him to unlock old memories and friendships guiding him to his true love. The character attachment is real as I grew to love Arlo, Cyril, Hanne, and Molly dearly. A solid 4 🌟 read! #LitsyLoveReads

When the internet goes out, you get a lot of reading done 🤓

Finished Jade City by Fonda Lee and I loved it! The ending did make me sad and I wished it hadn‘t ended the exact way it did, but I‘m hoping the next two books will redeem that for me. Looking forward to continuing on with this series!

catiewithac Were you hit by those punks who attacked the power stations? Is everything okay now? 3mo
corireadslife @catiewithac besides having to go without internet for a bit, we were fine. Between that and the weather, a lot of surrounding neighborhoods lost power so we were lucky there! Things are now back to normal from what we can tell. 3mo

My May #BookSpin 🧁 Fake It Till You Bake It is a true light-hearted romcom that brings together Donovan, an NFL player who is the owner of a Sugar Blitz, and Jada, a reality TV star hiding from the negatives of social media. A fake romance turns into anything but all while navigating family dynamics, crowds of camera waving fans, self-doubt, and learning disability. Loved it!!

Book: 15 of 2022

Well, not my favorite of the Chief Inspector Gamache series but that doesn‘t mean it was bad by any means. Louise Penny has the capability to write of two different stories with rich, historical depth - all happening simultaneously and then woven together at the very end to the point where no detail is forgotten. I love her writing!! This book just didn‘t hit the usual wow factor for me.

Ugh. I really wanted to love this book. I think the concept and idea is there but the writing is lacking and the characters have no depth. As someone who lives off character growth and development, I could not get hooked. After 26% I found myself wanting to read anything but this book so I decided to bail. Not something I usually do but sometimes you just have to move on 🤷🏻‍♀️

Finally. I have FINALLY finished Under the Whispering Door and it was okay. I know - unpopular opinion here. The ending was amazing, but the middle of the books was just too slow for me to feel interested. If I hadn‘t already read Cerulean Sea, I don‘t know if I would have had the desire to keep reading 🤷🏻‍♀️

ChaoticMissAdventures I read somewhere that he took the idea for this from the Native American residential schools, but didn't give acknowledgement to it, and definitely didn't donate any proceeds I struggle with this idea with where we are these days with those schools so haven't wanted to pick this up. 12mo
