To Paradise | Hanya Yanagihara
post image

Well, here we are. I had a nice little reading plan for my checked out physical books. The relentless peer pressure (lol) from you all has me throwing it all out the window and picking up this beautiful new beast instead!

Tamra Cute snout! 11h
AmyG Yay! We can discuss when we finish. 11h

Not sure why I decided to read *all* the chunksters, all at once!

Plus two on Kindle and one on audio…

So much for reading fewer books at once this year!

kspenmoll Impressive!!! 5d
batsy That IS impressive 💪🏽 I'm reading about 4 at the moment, one a chunkster, and I'm already like 😵... 😂 5d

Crazeedi Wow Helen you are going for the Gold!! I have one chunkster currently reading and one I borrowed on my kindle I have to get to! Plus 3 others I'm reading!!! 🙄 #blameitonlitsy 5d
AmyG Hahahaha. I am reading 3, too. 5d
JamieArc 😂😂 It‘s just so tempting! I‘m giving myself a break after finishing A Suitable Boy but am thinking about what chunkster to start next. After seeing all the Paradise posts, I think it‘s finally time for A Little Life. 5d
SRWCF Most of the books I own are chunksters, but I am literally forcing myself right now to read the shorter books on my shelf. 5d
vivastory @JamieArc I'm relieved to see that I'm not the only one who hasn't read that! 5d
marleed Wow - that‘s a pile of chunksters! I‘m really bad at even opening the first page of a chunkster. 5d
squirrelbrain Oof, be careful @JamieArc if you do decide to go for A Little Life. 💔 5d
Flaneurette I think I‘m going to attempt Unsheltered this month, I‘ve had it on my shelf forever 5d

To Paradise | Hanya Yanagihara

This year‘s bookish resolution was to read no more than 3 books at a time. We‘re not 2 weeks in and we‘re not doing well - my library hold for this month‘s bookclub came in yesterday. So I started it. Then this morning To Paradise came in 2 weeks early - it‘ll take me 3 weeks and then some to get through it, and if I go to the back of the queue, I won‘t get it til May. So I started that too. 😬. Help! 📚📚📚

scripturient 😂 I heard that To Paradise moves rather quickly once you‘ve gotten into the story, despite it being a chunkster. Maybe that helps. 🙈 5d
rockpools @scripturient I think I‘m going to enjoy it - despite my reluctance to take on another chunkster! 5d
Caroline2 Argh! Yes! I‘m reading 4 books at the mo and it‘s stressing me out too!!! 😆 🤦‍♀️ 5d

scripturient @rockpools My copy will be delivered today and I plan to start on the weekend. Looking forward to it while also being mildly intimidated. (edited) 5d
Oryx I'm desperately trying to be good and finish my current one before starting To Paradise. But it's a struggle. 5d
julesG #BookNerdProblems - I'm reading too many books at the moment, too. 5d
TrishB I‘ve just started To Paradise with my breakfast 😁 unfortunately I now have to work!! 5d
Cinfhen I dropped everything for TP!! I‘m glad I did. It really sucks you in 🧡😁 5d
jenniferw88 I'm reading too many books too! 5d
rockpools @Caroline2 @julesG @jenniferw88 It‘s good to have company! 5d
rockpools @scripturient @Oryx I think it‘ll be worth the wait 😊 5d
rockpools @TrishB It really gets in the way, doesn‘t it?! 5d
rockpools @Cinfhen That might have to happen if I‘m to get through it in 21 days 😱. Glad you‘re still enjoying it though! 5d
Chrissyreadit I‘m a member of the #readmultiplebookssimultaneously club too 🤣 but I‘m a total mood reader and can‘t imagine not. 5d
rockpools @Chrissyreadit Ha! I‘m glad we‘re a club not a problem!! I can‘t imagine not doing either, but I was trying to limit it this year as I do get a little overwhelmed. Maybe I should just roll with it! 5d
TrishB It so does. 5d
Cinfhen It‘s going to demand 21 days of FULL ATTENTION 😁❣️😘 5d
squirrelbrain I too was trying to limit myself this year, but was just laughing at the height of my current pile of physical books, only 3 but all chunksters. Plus one audio, and two Kindle…🙄 What are we like?! 5d
Crazeedi Look at everyone ⬆️ saying the same thing!! I'm right there too! 4 books, Argghhhh!!! #blameitonlitsy 5d
AmyG Ha...I also started To Paradise. Screw the other books. 🤣 5d
Cortg My library system went fine free last year, but in the past, I‘d rather just pay the couple dollars in overdue fines then not finish and have to wait. I consider it my library donation 💰 5d
rockpools @Cinfhen THAT IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN 🤣🤣 I might manage 10 minutes a couple of times a week 🙄 5d
rockpools @squirrelbrain My print pile is looking very civilised, if a bit chilly. But I‘ve got a 1200 page chunkster on Kindle and, somehow, THREE audiobooks on the go. I don‘t know how that happened! 5d
rockpools @Crazeedi I‘m loving that everyone‘s going … uh… yeah! And Litsy is 100% responsible! Good luck 😘 5d
rockpools @AmyG 🤣🤣 It‘s a plan! 5d
rockpools @Cortg I like your thinking. I do justify library reservation fees as supporting the greater good😁 Annoyingly though, this is an audiobook, so it‘ll automatically disappear after 21 days. And I‘m never sure when, so I need to get it finished at least a day before that… 5d
Centique I only read two books simultaneously but the pile next to my bed GROWS and then I‘m like - maybe I bail on this so I can get to that next one - so same problem but I end up bailing on some perfectly okay books. The power of the new ones! 😂😂 5d
rockpools @Centique 😂😂My ‘currently readings‘ very often become ‘currently not readings‘ before I ‘reshelve‘ them (ie bail on a perfectly good book without admitting it!) 🤫 4d

Here‘s a belated summary of what I read in December. I listened to a bunch of easy audiobooks since I was stitching lots of Christmas gifts. As I posted previously, Takei was definitely my favorite of the month. The Seed Keeper was a total #blameitonlitsy read and I wound up buying a copy for my bf‘s mom since she loves gardening and reading. A very decent month, all told!

This is one of Sam Bourne‘s early books, and a five star read for me. Love his thrillers.

I adored this book! It speaks to book lovers and library lovers, telling a story about love, loss, friendship, and the power of books to connect us.

LiteraryinLawrence Just borrowed this from the library (#blameitonlitsy) and excited to get to it! 2w
Zoe-h I love those blocks you have! Great quotes. 2w
