I powered through this audiobook so fast - great narration, funny enough to make me burst out laughing on more than one occasion, and a smart read - Highly recommended 💕
My lone library book plus July‘s issue of BookPage.
I‘ve been reading this for about 4 months now and it‘s time for me to just move on. It‘s cute. I love the main character‘s sarcasm, I just can‘t get into it. I have the physical copy but thought I would try the digital version. That didn‘t work and since there is another person waiting for it I decided to just return it and give up. Iñ
I hate bailing. ?
1. ⬆️ yes I‘m still reading this...
2. Yard work and hosting Easter dinner
3. Yes, they make a good snack
4. The MC of the current novel I‘m working on is named Lupé Alejandra Suazos-Cardoso, but it‘s getting changed to Gabriella Romero when she goes into witness protection.
This was such a great time, and these authors were so interesting and fun! Listen for great book recs (seriously, I was making notes as they were talking!), the dangers of the platypus, and the continuing impact of Agatha Christie!

The first interview episode of #EclecticSpringBreak recorded at NoVa Teen Book Fest is out today! These authors have very different books out, which led to a fun conversation. We also learned cool stuff is happening in YA and Ben‘s really into Agatha Christie 😂 eclecticreaders.fireside.fm/61
Super cute book about a boy moving to a new country and coming in mid year at HS. Best book dedication I‘ve seen in a while. Favorite quote from the book, “We all mess things up. It‘s what you do with the mess that matters.” I‘ll be sharing that quote with my high school and middle schooler. It‘s a good reminder for myself as well. #Book12of2019
New case for my new paper white. I had an old kindle touch that stopped working , but I love that this has a built in light! So great.
As I‘m breaking up with my phone, having the kindle is a life saver!
The goobers are really cramping my style this Morning. Charlotte is insisting on being in my lap and #zeek is being, well, Zeek.
Breakfast is eggs, Morningstar veggie crumbles, and red chile.
Also, Charlotte still doesn‘t have her own # . Any suggestions?
This is a laugh out loud, very entertaining YA rom-com meets fish out of water story filled with snark, cheerleaders, jocks, hockey & Texas heat. Coming from Montreal, Canada, Norris has all sorts of ideas about America & Austin, Texas where his mom has a new job—ideas & observations which he writes down in his journal. Have to be careful when you write such things down... A quick, fun read with all the ups/downs of being the new kid in school.
1. #LitsyGoesPostalOG and #LitsyLove sometimes I remember to do other things like #friYAYintro
2. I‘ve recently surprised myself by going to a writing group. It‘s at night which I don‘t normally do and it‘s with you know, people! This in no way means I‘m coming out of my introverted shell.
3. “Dude, I don‘t have time for pothead poetry here,” Norris said.
Only 19 pages in but. Norris has me cracking up! A teenager form Quebec, his mom took a job in Texas. The Guidance Counselor didn‘t realize he was bilingual and keeps trying to to talk to him in French. Totally had me thinking of Disociable Me.
Sweet, funny fish out of water story about black Canadian teen Norris‘s awkward relocation to Austin. Norris‘s observations are priceless.

The beginning half was fantastic, the second not so much...
It just seemed like the same things kept happening again and again. 🤷
I just realized this was the 1st book I've read this year that was published 2019!
Sidenote, audiobooks are great for me since I'm always doing something else so it never feels like a waste of time or anything if I didn't LOVE the book 🎧 #audiocrocheting #audiocoloring
Return flight to Houston from my hometown of Pittsburgh. Something to distract me from having to leave home.
I knew when I saw the authors dedication page that this was going to be a funny book and it certainly was. I loved how the book was broken up with Norris description of each event or person and he felt about them. Can't wait to see what the author writes next! I had many laugh out loud moments!
Monster was waiting for me to return from my walk. Got 30 minutes in before it started to rain.#LitsyWalkers
