Work closed early due to impending snow storm, which leaves me more time to read and play on litsy! Finished the movie last night and the tagged is one of the books i hope to read this month. Both are examples of sappy holiday romance! #wintergames #festivephotochallenge #elfies #holidaymovie @Clwojick @StayCurious @@bookwormjillk

This was my November TBR. I finished 13 books. Not shown: the Bride Test, X Marks the Scot. Scythe, Loveless vol. 1 and Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe. I am still working on Jade City and I will have to come back to A Girl Like That. No doubt this was an amazing reading month for me!

4thhouseontheleft I bailed on A Girl Like That and eventually went back to it, but if I had to do over I would have left it a DNF. 6d
phatsallylee @4thhouseontheleft good to know. The audio book got to a part that was making me very anxious so i had to stop listening. I may try with the physical book so that i can gloss over this part. 6d

Scythe | Neal Shusterman

I can see why everyone is so excited about the final book in this trilogy. Rowan and Citra captured my attention at the start. Some parts of the story reminded me of the Hunger Games but it's definitely its own story. The questions raised about what drives a person after you become immortal and achieve a utopian society made me consider that sometimes it's the process that gives life meaning not the result. I've already ordered book 2!

TheSpineView I have the final book but have not started it yet. Enjoyed the 2nd book a lot. 1w

The story never engaged me. One of the antagonists and the plot gave me flashbacks to the villains in the Michael Keaton Batman movies . I did like how the chapters mirrored the chapters in the actual manual of detection. #lastchance #catsoflitsy

I have been working very hard to clear my shelves so I rewarded myself with these purchases at my library book sale. Tagged had been on my #tbr for a long time. Carnegie's Maid is a #blameitonlitsy as I saw it featured on a post before I checked out and went back to grab it! Christmas movie and book are for #wintergames how weird is this movie going to be?! @Laughterhp

Laughterhp That‘s awesome! I‘m glad I could influence your purchase 😂😂 Also that movie looks super weird! Hope you enjoy it! 2w
marleed Oh fun. I love supporting Library Book sales. This week I learned our Friends of the Library earns over $100k for the public library. ...I also realize it‘s much easier for me to part with books for which I‘ve thrifted vs those I‘ve paid full or near-full price. 2w

Another second chance book complete and off my #tbr list. My biggest complaint is that the book circled around an ongoing conflict but when it came to the endgame...snoozefest. I did think that the author was able to jump between past and present in a manner that added to the story instead of confusing me.

One of my last chance books that i'm trying to finish before the end of the year. Something about the MC and the writing but the story never grabbed me. There were stories within stories and I'm not sure any of them were resolved. Finished and I won't be continuing on with other books in this series. ⭐ 👎

I wasn't expecting to finish this book so fast! This was a unique mashup of technology, magic and a galactic treasure hunt. I do think the character development needed more attention. #bbbbc #scififantasybookclub @InLibrisVeritas

Just finished another #botm pick. Not sure how I feel about this one. I didn't connect with the characters but the social commentary was thought provoking. Do urban renewal/infrastructure projects create another battleground for class warfare?

Not much reading this weekend but I did finish the tagged book. Reviews compared it to game of thrones or hunger games. Not sure i agree but if you enjoy epic fantasy, check this series out. I already added book 2 to my tbr! Interesting to note there are references to our current world making this a post-apocalyptic story. Not sure what happened yet but hopefully all will be revealed in the next two novels. #litsyatoz #letterQ
