History of Wolves | Emily Fridlund

Pickpick

Linda is a bit of a weird kid who grows interested in the new people across the lake in a remote northern Minnesota winter. Tragedy strikes as we move back and forth in time around the event. I really liked most of this book, though there are parts that don‘t fit well or ring true. But for me the good outweighs the bad.

Mehso-so

In what reads as a fantastical version of Africa, Tracker is searching far and wide for a kidnapped boy. This story includes magical doors, shapeshifters, and vampires. I found myself quite engaged by it but I‘m not sure I really liked it. And there were sections I found messy and others I thought unnecessary. And the dogs are just exhausted after finishing this. 😉 I give it a meh.

vivastory That seems to be the general consensus: engaging, but not enjoyable. I will think I'll give it a shot in a few months. Thanks for tagging me! 5d
Hooked_on_books @vivastory You‘re welcome! And yeah, it looks like a lot of people felt the same way. I‘m a little perplexed that it was short listed for the National Book Award, but then I truly hated the winning book. I just usually like their picks. I‘ll be interested to see what you think once you get to it. 5d

Double Tap | Lani Lynn Vale
post image

So…I just accidentally figured out a feature that I assume is universal on Litsy and not just a product of my phone. When I double tap on a picture of someone‘s post, it “likes” the post for me. Did you guys know this? I guess I learn something new every day!

Gratuitous doggie picture just because. #dogsofLitsy #Bindi

Megabooks I‘ve been on Litsy nearly four years and I had no idea! Thanks! 2mo
Nebklvr Huh. Thanks for the gratuitous doggy pic and the info 2mo

julesG Cute photo! 🐾 Yep, knew about the double tapping. Coming here from Instagram I was actually glad to see that it worked the same. 2mo
LiteraryinLititz News to me! Cool! 2mo
TrishB My daughter told me that one! 2mo
ljuliel Yea I figured it out one day , I‘m not sure how. It‘s faster when Liking posts. 2mo
Amandajoy I had no idea. And no idea you could do that on Instagram either @julesG 🤯 2mo
Born.A.Reader I love this feature. The only downside is I try to do the same on FB when I've been on Litsy too much! 2mo
julesG @Born.A.Reader 😂😂😂 Same here. 2mo
MicheleinPhilly WOW. Mind. BLOWN. 2mo
Hooked_on_books @julesG Thanks! And instagram, huh? I‘ve never had an account there, but I have a feeling If I did, I still wouldn‘t have known. 😂 2mo

After buying and renovating a huge, old house, a family then encounters some odd goings-on after moving in. Is it haunted? Is something else happening? Good creep factor with the house‘s history told through 4 previous families. There was an odd info dump near the end in the oldest story line that didn‘t quite work for me, but otherwise I enjoyed it.

Soubhiville Both girls in one picture ❤️. Do you have a treat or are you just talking to them? 2mo
Hooked_on_books @Soubhiville Here I was just talking to them. I moved to get a picture and they both jumped up from where they were, so I positioned them and went with it. I‘m kind of amazed it worked! 😆 2mo

How Could She: A Novel | Lauren Mechling

Panpan

For some reason I was compelled to finish this book and should not have bothered, as it‘s a mess. Flat, inconsistent characters with unrealistic arcs and minimal pointless plot. Just don‘t bother.

At least I had a snuggly lap puppy while reading. #dogsofLitsy #Bindi

Cinfhen You need to learn the art of bailing!!!!!! 💕😘 2mo
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen I‘m definitely willing to bail on books but for some reason I didn‘t want to with this one. I think it may be because my library system got it for me from another library and I felt bad about returning it without finishing (as if they would know). I also hoped maybe it would redeem itself. Alas, it did not. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2mo
ljuliel I‘ve often thought it‘d be neat if the libraries had a month where they required short book reports on every book you check out that month. I‘d be in trouble for sure, since I‘m such a mood reader , I take books back often that I don‘t finish. 2mo

Cinfhen That‘s funny @ljuliel @Hooked_on_books That sounds like JEWISH GUILT 😂😂😂 2mo
Hooked_on_books @ljuliel Ha! That‘s hilarious. I can imagine how that would go over! 😆 And @Cinfhen you‘re close—I was raised Catholic. Also well known for their guilt. 2mo
Cinfhen Same difference 😉 2mo

Frank knows too much about who REALLY killed Kennedy and is on the run from his fellow mobsters in the aftermath. Charlotte is fed up with the typical housewife life of 1960s Oklahoma. In this well-crafted, well-plotted story, the two are destined to collide and no one seems to be safe. The tension building is pitch perfect. Highly recommend. #BOTMBuddyRead

AmyG Agreed. I finished this yesterday. Wonderful book. (edited) 3mo

When I Was a Child I Read Books | Marilynne Robinson
post image
Bailedbailed

I‘m calling it. Marilynne Robinson is deeply intellectual, and I‘m down with that. But she‘s also interested in musing about theology and philosophy and I‘m just not. (Plus I find this title very misleading.) When I realized I was only forcing my way through this book to have an #Iowa for #ReadingUSA2019, I decided that was a dumb reason. So now I am free!

#dogsofLitsy #Bindi

Amandajoy If you still need an Iowa book, try this one 4mo

ljuliel Bryson‘s Thunderbolt Kid takes place there if you have yet to read it. It‘s very good. 4mo
diovival Haha it looks like somehow this book let the pup down too 4mo
Hooked_on_books @Amandajoy @rachelm Thanks you guys! I was thinking of that one, but I found something on my shelves that works, so I‘m going to try that one first. 4mo
Hooked_on_books @ljuliel I like Bryson and in bailing on this book I discovered he was born and raised in Iowa, which I hadn‘t known. I‘ve got something on my shelves that fits, but If it lets me down, I may look for this one. 4mo

The majestic dog poses.

Shortly thereafter, she farted audibly and looked at her butt, thereby shattering the image. 😆

Whisper Network: A Novel | Chandler Baker

Pickpick

An unrepentantly feminist novel about male entitlement and privilege in a large corporation. This was such a real world look at how professional women are treated then beaten down when trying to change things. I just loved it and frankly felt validated by it. This could be a one-sitting read for sure.

When your dog is overly fascinated with the smell of your lip balm, it becomes rather difficult to read.
