So much #LitsyLove hitting the mail today! 16 letters written and off they go 💌📫

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Awesome ❤️📝📮 5mo
Mimi28 I got your letter today. I love all the books you sent but I will specifically look for and read the one you inquired about in your letter 👍🏽☺️☮️ If you read one of my many posts within the past 36 hours or so- you will glean that I am not very organized. However I keep the books you sent in the original box on a desk in our living room. Your letter is in my mom‘s room and by God‘s grace she is finally taking a nap!! It‘s a rare event, lol 💤☺️ 5mo
readwithcori @Mimi28 I‘m so glad you are enjoying the books! I don‘t remember if I sent any Francine Rivers ones but I‘d be happy to send some your way if you would like :) I think that is who I mentioned in my letter. 5mo
Mimi28 Sure!! I will take them off your hands. Thanks!! You‘re awesome and caring and I feel like you get my internal conflict of wanting to read fun but also inspirational books!! You‘re an Aquarius, aren‘t you? That‘s why I feel so comfortable with you. You are very helpful and kind. I‘m a Pisces 2/28/76. I know… astrology kinda goes against Christian values but I can‘t help it. I am very sensitive and am an empath and shy and very vibe driven, lol 5mo

Amazing! I love Katherine Center and literally jumped for joy when I received this ARC. A story of love, friendship, community, and friendship. You‘ll experience tears, laughter, grief and joy all intertwined perfectly. Not to mention, Emma and Charlie are everything! The Rom-Commers will be available June 11th, 2024 and I highly recommend! #LitsyLoveReads

What an intense listen! Following Blood Sports of the prison system, this dystopian novel expertly portrays how society can detach from the prison system and see prisoners as nothing more than their crimes due for punishment instead of rehabilitation. My only issue was that there were so many characters which made it hard to follow at times. 4⭐️ for me! #litsylovereads

I‘ll be honest, at the beginning of this book I was a little like what the heck am I reading? Very detailed and dense with many characters that had me slightly discombobulated. BUT I finally started to connect all the dots and goodness gracious is this book good! Flew through 800 pages like it was nothing and can‘t wait to pick up book two! #LitsyLoveReads

4.5 ★

Despite not knowing a single thing about tennis, Carrie Soto Is Back is a phenomenal read. An elite female tennis player fights her way back to the top despite being written off by the tennis world due to being considered “too old” and called a bitch by many others. The audio version is amazing and brings this story to life even more so than just reading. Highly recommend the listen! #LitsyLoveReads

Yikes! I do not take DNF lightly but When Grumpy Met Sunshine was just not for me. Flat and uninteresting banter gave me nothing to be excited about. All I could think about was what book I could be reading instead. So I took that as a sign to DNF and move on. Better luck to the next reader! #LitsyLoveReads

Thank you NetGalley and St Martin‘s Press for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I‘m convinced that Ali Hazelwood can do no wrong when it comes to writing.

Her books and characters are relatable, charming, sexy, funny, witty all while integrating serious notes of emotion and what it‘s like to be a woman in male dominated fields. Love, Theoretically is all those things plus an enemies to lovers, empowering, embrace who you truly are plotline. Highly recommend! #LitsyLoveReads

The Ashes & The Star-Cursed King by Carissa Broadbent

4 ★

Bittersweet is the first thing that comes to mind when reading The Ashes & The Star-Cursed King. Book two picks up immediately where book one left off and is packed with so much emotion and action from start to finish. The character relationships are so raw and real, it‘s impossible not to feel attached.

Spoiler: I‘m not ready for Raihn and Oraya‘s story to end 😭

A slower start but once things got moving at about 20%, I found it hard to put the book down! Overall, a solid read for me!
