Look how well the T-shirt and tote from @catiewithac complement my current read! Thank you, Catie!!! #staycationintimeswap #SITS

Chrissyreadit 😍😍😍😍 3d
stephothebesto @Chrissyreadit Seeing the tagged book on your feed inspired me to request it from the library. I JUST finished it - what fun! I liked it a lot, though the battle scenes became a bit of a blur. What did you think? 3d

@wanderinglynn here is my response to this weeks #bfc photo challenge. My new favorite piece of equipment is my fitness tracker. It lets me know I‘m moving every day- and helping me move a little more each day.

#LitsyPSA: I‘ve not read this one, I promise it‘s on my list but there are soooo many! Anyway, it‘s still $2.99 so if it looks like your cup of tea, snag it now. There‘s a third book out this year - the second is already out. Now is a good time to start. Who knows? Maybe I‘ll take my own advice!

There were a couple things I was not a fan of in the writing but there were more things I liked in the story. Will definitely be seeking out the next one.

Chrissyreadit @hermyknee I love all of it- including the tote! The sealing wax was complete serendipity- my daughter and I are playing around with sealing wax- I want to get Litsy mail sent and use fun seals and she wanted to be creative with using it too- so excited! I love the bookmark so much- and am beyond excited for the tea and coffee! 4mo

So close to being done with this and I just know they‘ll be a loose end revealed to carry the story over to Book 2. Really enjoyed this story!

Fun blend of sci-fi & fantasy, lots of action that makes the pages go by like nothing, and some really great characters that totally sucked me in and made me cheer and despair with them. Also a very pretty cover.

Need the second one soon.

I absolutely loved this book! It‘s SciFi merged with Fantasy, If I had to describe it, it‘s a blend of Firefly & Dark Matter with Anne McCaffreys CrystalSinger series. In a world where everyone is born with magical ability, a crew of salvagers are on the run after finding the location of a battle mage ship. #Booked2019 #GenreBusting #LittenLoveBingo #LLB19 #FromYourOwnLitsyTBR #Pop19 #ABookSetInSpace #ReadingWomenChallenge #AnyBookInASeries

Halfway through & very much enjoying this SciFi/Fantasy book about a crew of illegal magic wielding space salvagers searching for a legendary warship whilst on the run from a high level secret society trying to kill them. Very enjoyable so far. Photo is from Sunday on our drive up the coast.

Started this book this morning. I‘m so excited. It has the promise of a good Space opera, my favorite genre of Sci-fi. Plus there seems to be magic in this universe too! 🤓📚

#BookMail Pt4 I first saw this on the booktuber ‘Book Roast‘s channel when she did her book advent calendar(an idea I am totally stealing for next year!) When I heard it compared to Firefly I was hooked. I‘m a sucker for the Mal Reynolds type of space captain. With a plot of salvage ship, charming but unreliable captain & crew plus sorcery powered race cars, what‘s not to love?🏎🚀

I bought this book because it was compared to Firefly....I‘m still not sure how I feel about that comparison. But I like the book, from the evolution of the characters, to the magic/class system of the universe, to the one character‘s expensive, color changing tattoos.

Oh dear, I‘m bouncing again. This sounded like my jam and it was playing hard to tick all my boxes, but I just didn‘t get on with the writing. I‘d finish if I _had_ to (with gritted teeth), but... life‘s too short for books that make you not want to read.

Ok. So, take Indiana Jones + Cars + Pirates of the Caribbean + Treasure s Planet, mix them together & you have a rollicking space adventure—a treasure hunt for a lost ship no less—populated by a band of misfits, who get themselves into all sorts of trouble when they aren‘t engaged in shenanigans, a creaky but dependable ship, & some creepy old baddies who are plotting big plots. This is a super fun read—a blockbuster movie in a book.

I also came back from our Thanksgiving trip with this amazing shawl my mom knit for me. She‘s always been a knitter but in her retirement, she‘s taken it to another level & I often benefit! 😍 We are under a winter storm warning tomorrow—anywhere from 4-12 inches of snow (kids are hoping for 12)—and I‘m super excited to wrap myself up in the shawl while enjoying a pot of tea & the tagged book. Winter weekends are made for this! 💙☃️❄️📚🍵❄️☃️💙

Original concept, quality writing. I got bored with all the car racing bits, but I can honestly say that I didn‘t see all the plot twists coming. Good characterization! Space opera + magic + QUILTBAG & POC representation

Firefly remains one of my favorite shows & the movie (Serenity) still gets quoted/referenced often. Color me intrigued. 🤔
