Terrified of being identified as a librarian by the way she‘s dressed.

I wait all year for this and it‘s finally here. Broochtober! This year I‘m going for all book-based baubles.

I started a book and finished it all in the same day. It was just like old times! {sniff}
Wonderfully funny, sweetly romantic, and now I want to move to a small cottage in Maine. Which is unlikely to actually happen since I don‘t really like weather, tourists, or small towns.

It took me 11 freaking years to finish this series and all I get is a hug at the end?!? That‘s it, I‘m never reading manga again. (Kidding.)

Mehso-so

The expression on the cat‘s face is a mirror of how I feel about this book. I love a good mystery and I love highbrow lit fic. But together they merge to form a giant meh. Alas.

This is what you get when your ugly stepsisters are feminists out to smash the patriarchy. The ending is a bit convenient, but otherwise great fun.

I went to NetGalley looking for Hoop Dreams (it wasn‘t there, boo) and came away with this instead. It has a definite bias (it means to), but the author explains his points clearly and well. Definitely worth a look if you‘re interested in the topic — and nowadays you should be. Thanks to First Second for access to the pdf.

“...the place has all the allure of a dehumidifier.” So perfect a description I can‘t even.

House of the Spirits | Isabel Allende

Geez Louise, this book took forever to finish. My boyfriend and I took to calling the author “Isabel No-ende”. A single paragraph will cross over two pages; sometimes the paragraph consisted of one sentence. But by golly, it was good. A generational saga taking place in an unnamed country, but very Chile-like, sweeps through history with a vibrant, magical, incredibly wordy brush. Recommended, but make yourself comfortable. You‘ll be there awhile.

Absolutely as sweet as you‘ve heard. Family drama, young love, coming of age, and baked goods. How can you resist?

Year We Fell from Space | Amy Sarig King

Amy King‘s YA books are some of my favorites (Vera Dietz being my favorite, natch). I missed her first foray into #kidslit, so when I was sent this ARC, I snapped it up. The story is as intense as you‘d expect. Liberty is dealing with both her parents‘ breakup and her fear that she might have depression. A “mirror” story for me, I related to so much of Liberty‘s experience. All this and talking inanimate objects? Sold! #childrensbooks #middlegrade

If L. Frank Baum‘s OZ and Erik Shannower‘s OZ had a baby that didn‘t want to live in OZ, this is the book you‘d get. Sweet story that‘s not over told and absolutely gorgeous art. Great for kids and OZ fans of all ages. #kidslit #childrensbooks #middlegrade #vikingbooks #litsywelcomewagon

RaimeyGallant Fun way to do a book review. I may steal it. :) And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. @LitsyWelcomeWagon 6mo
