Red, White & Royal Blue | Casey McQuiston

Pickpick

I spent a few hours #audiogardening to finish up this lovely romance. I'm so glad I'm reading romance now, especially when it is so diverse and funny and twee. This book was also sexy as hell, not to mention a Democrat's (and liberal Texan's) greatest wish fulfillment of the last 3 years.

"What's not to love about being expertly lit and drunk at two in the afternoon?
But I'm going to need you to love me on the bus, dude. And first thing in the morning. Also, when I'm drunk and refuse to shut up about getting McNuggets from the drive-thru."

What a perfect quote and essay for Bachelorette Monday!

Reading is getting slower and sleepier over here...It's 97°, but there's a nice breeze, and if I weren't in an uncomfortable camp chair I would have drifted off to sleep long ago! This essay collection is a good change of pace for me, it's laugh out loud funny, but I'll be switching to audio soon to make dinner. Definitely hitting 24 hours this time! #24in48

Good morning readathoners! I'll stayed up way too late last night, so I slept in a bit and am catching up on the #hour30 challenge. I didn't keep a lot of my old middle grade or ya books, and I was the kid who read way above her reading level (mostly because I thought I was smarter and more mature than I really was), but of course I loved Harry Potter. These are the new house editions I'm collecting, I can't wait to have the whole set! #24in48

#24in48 Hour 18, time to break out the cheese board and romance! I am fairly new to romance as a genre, I think the first one I truly loved was Helen Hoang's The Kiss Quotient, which I read earlier this year! I love the fake relationship trope- also found in Jasmine Guillory's novels- and I love to see diverse characters.

Well, y'all were the first social media I shared the news with when sweet Arthur Weasley came into our lives, I figured you should be the first to know that he has left us. After almost 2 years in our home and over 3 weeks of struggle and pain, we have said goodbye to our sweet pup. I strongly recommend the tagged book for any pet owners, and give your #petsoflitsy an extra hug from me tonight.

Wow, I've been away from Litsy for a while! It's been a very stressful few months with lots of family visiting, a very sick dog to take care of, and both my husband's and my cars breaking down. Not much time or energy left over for reading. But today I have the day off and rain keeping me inside, so I'm cuddling up with some books! Finally!

February #wrapup! All in all a pretty good reading month for me, & I revisited a series I loved when I was a kid - The Cat Who series. My 5 ⭐ reads were Beauty Queens and Harry Potter. All female authors this month! #februarywrapup
#Theyearofnowhitemen is going well, but I'm noticing a trend of reading mostly white women authors, which is not what I was going for. Any recommendations on POC authors, especially male or non-binary authors?

Thank you all for your recommendations, the cemetery tour we took was amazing, and the Kitchen Witch Cookbook store was awesome, and through them we found the Community Book Center, which focuses on African American literature, and had a great selection of diverse books for kids and adults! Plus I got to talk Toni Morrison with the bookseller. ♥️ #weneeddiversebooks #neworleans

Here‘s a look at my mostly finished greenhouse! There‘s still a lot of work to do inside, but I hope to have many hours of #audiogardening in here this spring!

I read two Toni Morrison novels last year, after years of being intimidated by her writing, and she has become one of my favorite authors. The audio is read by the author, and while it is hard to stomach the subject matter, it is beautifully written and performed.

I spent the morning compiling my 2018 stats into my bullet journal! I know it‘s not super clear in the photo, but I‘ve broken it down to reading medium (print is in the lead, barely), star rating (I gave a LOT of 4 ⭐️), genre (memoir is my most read), & author demographics. I think my big takeaway is a need to be harsher with my ratings-I barely even remember some of the 4 ⭐️! This was the last spread of my #bujo, I‘m starting a fresh one today!

Part Time Domestic was the name of my Etsy shop (I sold cloth napkins & planters & other home decor).

I am on a serious bail streak lately. At less than halfway through this one I‘m ready to move on. The premise, traveling across the country to learn about Americans through food, is excellent. But Majumdar fails to make any connections whatsoever between the food he is describing and what it is to be American. Bit of a letdown for a food memoir, but I probably shouldn‘t have read it right after reading Anthony Bourdain.

AmyG Ooooo, I am going back to NJ for a night and get to visit my old book hunts for a few hours. Goodwill and Dollar Tree. This just made me even more excited. Good haul! 13mo
