What a spectacular evening with Ariel!!! New bookstore explorations, some solid jams and the prospect of a movie- I'm hella down. These books sound so interesting and range so much in genre. Horror, fantasy, experimental fiction, where to start? @Jabberwocky #sisterday #bookhaul #bookstore #horror #fantasy #experimentalfiction #art #illustrations #goodday

ravenlee My in-law clan calls this "feline paralysis." As in, "I'm suffering from feline paralysis; could you get me my book/drink/phone?" 2y

First book down, two days into summer reading! Boy was this a wonderful read. The tone is really cool, it made me feel like I was watching the story play out like a movie. Fantastic plot, definite throwback theme even though it's set in the 2040's. #sciencefiction #scifi #fantasy #summerreading2018 #technology #future #eighties #videogames #comicbooks #nerds

Jabberwocky Why only so so then? 2y
mimsyborogroves I've decided to only use 'pick' for my very very favourite books. I feel like that's probably a bit confusing since this really is a lovely book, but it's mostly for me so that I can sort out the books that really stand out the most to me, even if I come across many really great books along the way. @Jabberwocky 2y

It turns out that I have wayyy too many books on my plate right now, what with the summer reading program starting tomorrow and school. Because of this, I'm bailing on Brandon Sandersons second Mistborn trilogy- hopefully I will be able to read it in the near future!
#summerreading2018 #bailed #notime #brandonsanderson #sciencefiction #scifi #fantasy #mistborn

Kalidayly22 Please continue it when you can, I did the same thing but when I went back it was so worth it! It might start out slow but I swear it is so worth the read! But I understand if you have too much on your plate so good luck! 2y
mimsyborogroves @kalidayly22 I think that I definitely will, thank you for telling me that!!! I was a little iffy about it because it started really slow. It also felt so different from the first trilogy and not really what I'm into. knowing it gets better I will almost certainly pick them back up soon! (edited) 1y

Book and art haul!!! I am so excited to begin reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline to start off summer reading with @TheReadingMermaid . I'm also happy to have finally found the second book of the Silo Trilogy by Hugh Howey. Art supplies too!!! What a day! Thanks to @Jabberwocky for the lovely evening (: #sciencefiction #summerreading2018 #art #catsoflitsy #bookhaul #goodday #scifi #technology #mycatwasangryatallthegooglyeyesonhim

SumisBooks Love it all!!! I'm excited to read that one also 😍🤘🏻💕 2y
mimsyborogroves @Syndelle777 I was debating between between Ready Player One and The Diamond Age, but it was decided for me as the store didnt even have the latter haha 2y
SumisBooks Nice! Love it when decisions are made easy 👍🏻 2y

This is an incredible book. It blew me away, and was not what I expected. If you want to cry for days, this book is for you. It's worth reading even if you don't really feel like being sad. It's worth the tears. #dark #sad #childrensbooks #fiction #fantasy #beautiful

Jabberwocky I‘m so glad you liked it! 2y

That awkward moment when your books are overdue and you've barely even scratched the surface of one! Oh goodness. Where is the time to read and write and draw while still keeping up with life?! #brandonsanderson #sciencefiction #fantasy #library #school #art #thereisnottime

Jabberwocky Also if I were to start reading him where would I start? 2y
mimsyborogroves If you want to start small go for Warbreaker (a stand-alone book), it's an older work of his and so it'd introduce you to his writing and if you read more you won't be disappointed because his writing has improved (Warbreaker is still an awesome book I just prefer the Mistborn series). If you're willing to plunge right in go for Mistborn, it's my favourite, it's a trilogy, it's lovely. It's up to you where you start, those are good choices though. 2y

I would just like to mention that "facetious" is a spectacular word that includes every vowel in alphabetical order... Aside from y, the weird non-committal vowel of doom. #english #studying #vocabulary #notquiteabookpost

MayJasper Hello and welcome 😊 2y
Vertabrain Welcome! I‘m new too :) Funny story....I learned the word facetious in 7th grade, and used it to terrorize boys, along the lines of...”If you think you‘re so cool, then spell facetious,” or “Don‘t worry, I‘m just being facetious.” (Said with mocking disdain). It was my favorite word for an entire summer, earned me the coveted title of ‘nerd‘, and kept those boys in their rightful place. 😂😂😂 2y

I'm actually really excited to read this, even if it is just for school. Though I've only gotten a few pages in, it seems rather captivating. #psychological #allegory #school #sixties

CoffeeNBooks I really, really enjoyed reading this one. I hadn't seen the movie yet when I read it, but I knew Jack Nicholson played the part of McMurphy, so I heard his voice whenever I read McMurphy's dialogue! 😃 2y
