I haven't had internet since I moved, and it's hobbling my social media. But I'm stil reading!

I keep forgetting I have Litsy, despite the icon being right by Goodreads on my phone. #whoops

I've been trying to educate myself on the countries and world events my conservative upbringing skewed or neglected.

This book is good, but I wish I had a physical copy with maps. It's hard for me to track so many foreign names in audio only.

The gauntlet has been thrown. We're moving cross country in a month, and I want to read half the books on my night stand by then, a total of 29 books.

My sister doesn't think I can do it. I regularly read 10+ per month, but that includes audio.

rretzler Good luck! May be difficult if you also have to pack for your move 🤣 4mo

I've been reading faster than I can update my social media (23 books in May! That is a new record for me!), so I started a new blog just for reviews of everything I've been reading. A new, full length review goes up at least 3x a week, and I cover everything from YA to nonfiction, adult, mysteries, some kid lit, new releases, back list books, and more.

I adored this so much. It made me want to watch the movie again.

This book shows more of the emotional development of the relationship between Belle and Beast that was skimmed over in montage form in the original animated version, with an additional plot thrown in. It fits pretty seamlessly in with the movie.

Most of the complaints I've seen on Litsy about this book are about how it's written--it's a middle grade, so keep that in mind.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter | Seth Grahame-Smith
Panpan

This is a historical fantasy novel w/ vampires & the Civil War. It should be a home run, but it reads like a very dry biography, and then we get to the sexism/racism.

Author completely erased Kate Warne from Baltimore plot against Lincoln. She uncovered the plot & saved Lincoln.

Also, it's apparently okay for vampires to eat slaves because they aren't really people, but when they become a stepping stone to eating whites, it's a problem.

Found this at a flea market today and had to bring it home. Looks like it is part of a series, so more research necessary before I start reading. #bookhaul

Me, a horror author: writes creepy AF books, falls asleep to the Crimson Peak ST, binge reads stuff like this.

Also me: sleeps with the lights on while cuddling a plushie, couldn't sit through Hocus Pocus until college.

I'm one of those people who enjoy not just buying antique books, but also reading them! This one is from 1932 and isn't in Litsy's database (yet).

I cannot give this book enough stars. It's an amazing piece of nonfiction and a must for anyone interested in the Victorian period.

I'm starting research for a new book set during the American revolution, which is not my strong suit. So I'm going back to basics.

I used to reread the entire American Girl series any time i was home sick in bed. (Kirsten is still my fav, tho) #research #authorsoflitsy
