While I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as Ninth House I still couldn't put it down. I need more!

Attempting to read my book only to discover it is completely missing a page. It wasn't ripped out, it apparently wasn't there at all. I would see if I could exchange it but since I got this book when it 1st came out (and it has been sitting on my shelf since) I don't think that is even possible 😩

mcipher Sometimes you can find the missing page in google books(I have had this happen to me and it SSUUUCCKS!) 1mo
LiteraryinLawrence Oh noooo!! 1mo
jackilynn @mcipher I found a digital copy on the Scribd app so I guess I will read it there. It just sucks because I am really enjoying the book so I could see keeping this in my permanent collection. Now I don't know if I want to anymore. 1mo
wordslinger42 How maddening! This happened to me once with a new edition of Pride and Prejudice, except there were 70+ pages missing 😭 1mo
jackilynn @wordslinger42 70+ pages...wow! Guess I got lucky with only the 2 pages. 1mo

My 1st 2023 TBR. Of course this doesn't include any ebooks or audiobooks I also plan on reading but it is my goal this year to really knock out more of physical books on my TBR shelf. Everytime I take a book from this pile I will be adding a new one from my TBR bookshelf to take its place. Fingers crossed I can finally start to clear some space because that shelf is currently overflowing 🤞😬📚

Well that was a fun little email Amazon. It's not anywhere close to the amount of audiobooks I have actually listened to so far this year (just the ones I actually paid for vs library app) but it is obvious what I mostly use it for (*cough* true crime book club *cough).

We have really been struggling trying to get Teens interested in our library lately so we have decided to take a new approach. We have created a library tiktok. I am slowly learning how to create/navigate it. It definitely takes some patience. Now, I should probably start the book club book in hopes that someone might actually show up.

The Hobbit | J.R.R. Tolkien
post image

Did I need more copies of the Hobbit or LOTR...no!!

Did I buy more at the book sale anyways...yes!! They are my favorite books (especially the Hobbit) after all.

Kind of bummed that the matching edition of The Fellowship was missing it's cover so I didn't end up with a full set but that's a used book sale for you.

Leftcoastzen Cool ! I think it‘s great when people collect different copies of their favorite book. 4mo

1. My parents. I grew up in a house full of avid readers.

2. Neil Gaiman & Stephen King

3. The library I work at has a true crime book club I participate in & we are reading the tagged book.

I also am the host of the teen book club and we are reading The Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee.

🌸 Yes for me it is like breathing. Even if it is only 2 pages I have to read everyday for my mind to relax.

🌼 I tend to read the most at night (since I work 2 jobs from Aug-May). I have been known to stay up way to late & suffer for it the next day. During the summer I read any free time I have.

🌺 Fantasy is my genre of choice but if I really need a break from life I have been known to disappear into a romcom.

I had 5 books on my summer break TBR and with 8 days remaining I still have 2 left. As always I tend to get distracted by all the "shiny new" books & forget about any set TBR I have.

The Black House-Stephen King/Peter Straub ✔
The Rose & the Thorn- Michael J. Sullivan ✔
Thunderhead-Neal Shusterman ✔
The Great Hunt-Robert Jordan
An Echo in the Bone-Diana Gabaldon

Here's hoping I can at least finish this one before I go back.

Waiting for my next library hold to come in so I might as well tackle the next book on my TBR bookshelf at home. Hadrian & Royce are so entertaining. These books are almost always a quick read. The perfect filler while I wait.
