Besties | Leah Reena Goren
8 posts | 1 read
A fully illustrated celebration of female friendship that is a gift, a thank-you note, and a love letter all in one. Besties smartly captures all the reasons why best friends are . . . well, the best: they help you make decisions, are there through rough patches, and will always be your +1 for awkward parties. Even more than that, best friends are the people with whom dearest memories are shared, whether trivial or meaningful. In a style that is at turns both sweet and quirky, celebrated indie artist Leah Goren illustrates the many ways in which close friendships withstand the test of time, cross-country moves, failed romantic relationships, and silly arguments. Featuring whimsical artwork and a sincere message, this is the book friends both young and mature will want to give each other to show their appreciation.

Besties for 50 years. Maggi loves Joanne Fluke‘s cozy baking mysteries, and I love Michael Connelly‘s Harry Bosch. But we both watch way too much true crime on tv. #soulmate #literarylove

Tamra Sweet! 9mo
vkois88 Awwww, too cute! I'm with you on the true crime! I even think I wore on my mom... she's been watching some too, after yelling at me for all these years 😂😂 9mo

kellyann28 These look like some great picks! 😍 11mo
hes7 One of mine 11mo
TheBookKeepers A court of thorns and roses was my fav but you‘ve already read that! 😍. City of brass was good and I also liked Before We Were Yours 11mo
TheBookKeepers Others would be Circe & A Man Called Ove 11mo
kellyann28 @TheBookKeepers Unpopular opinion: I tried doing Circe as an audiobook and I couldn't get through it! I don't know if it was the reader or the story but it just didn't click for me. 11mo
kellyann28 @rather_be_reading @Victoriahoperose @BridgetteM @hes7 thank you! Got almost all of those added! 😊 11mo
Bookishthoughts Good luck! 11mo

Goodreads best choice winners have been decided. I‘m happy The Hate U Give won. The rest 🤷‍♀️ What do you think?

Cortg What Happened and Radium Girls are on my TBR but haven‘t tackled them yet. 2y
PandaPanda Artemis has been sitting on my shelf but this makes me think I need to pick it up this month! 2y
Cortg @PandaPanda My MIL gave Artemis to my son for Christmas. I might have to pick it up. 2y

Mdargusch I bailed on Artemis. I can‘t believe it won. 😳 2y
Cortg @irre I wasn‘t a big fan of her 1st book so I‘ve been hesitant to pick up LFE. I‘ll have to put it on my list! 2y
Reviewsbylola Overall I‘m not impressed. But I never am with the GR picks! 2y
Cortg @Mdargusch I haven‘t heard the best reviews of Artemis. I was surprised it was voted a winner. My guess is because it was a more popular read due to the success of The Martian. 2y
Cortg @Reviewsbylola Most people haven‘t read all the books that are voted on, so it‘s a popularity thing. 2y
Cinfhen Meh 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I‘m disappointed about some of the picks. I think most people don‘t read the books they vote for more popularity like @Cortg said. I never have liked their picks. 2y

Well, today's #sizzlinsummerbooks prompt is pretty serendipitous because I want to share something one of my #besties & I have been working on! Our book blog. So far I have old posts (from like 3 years ago 🙈) and our first introductory post! Please feel free to read and follow along with us. We're looking for a creative outlet and figured this would be the perfect thing. Link below! ⬇️



SharonGoforth Awesome!! 2y
Smangela @SharonGoforth thanks! We're excited even if it just turns into something our moms read 😜 2y

Super cute book about besties. Written and drawn for high school bffs. This was a gift from my bff!
