April #BookSpin and #DoubleSpin picks! Of course neither one is from my own shelves. 😆 I can #BlameLitsy for both: The Velvet Room has been on my radar because @TheAromaofBooks recommended it, and Saltus is from @monalyisha ‘s #AuldLangSpine list. I‘m really looking forward to both!

monalyisha Looking forward to your review of both! (Unfortunate name for the protagonist of The Velvet Room. 🙈) 3w
TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! I hope you enjoy The Velvet Room. If you don't, don't tell me, I'm too emotionally attached to it to withstand any criticisms 😂 3w
willaful @TheAromaofBooks I hear you! I'm not sure it'll work for someone coming to it as an adult, but fingers crossed. 3w

The first bookstore we visited was McNally Jackson in Midtown - we loved this one when we visited last time

Both Daddy‘s Gone A-Hunting and The Postcard is #BlameLitsy buys, and Jen Campbell recommended Daddy on her channel as well

So it seemed only appropriate that I bought her book as well

I loved Tia Williams Seven Days In June so when I saw that she had a new book out, I had to have it

I also got this cute tote bag

squirrelbrain Cute tote! ❤️ 1mo
CarolynM Daddy‘s Gone A-Hunting is really good 1mo

I think this novella was a #blamelitsy pick after seeing it on a number of best-of-2023 lists on here. And it's lovely. Sparse prose where the love can shine clearly through. Love this cover, too.

This is such a #BlameLitsy, both buying and reading, for me.

I didn‘t know much about Paris Hilton. I saw the paparazzi photographs in the early 2000s, heard about the tape and saw some trailers to her reality show The Simple Life

After reading this I know that Paris Hilton‘s life has been completely different than what I thought. She‘s though, especially mentally. I‘m amazed that she can be so graceful after everything.

This is a #blamelitsy book. It is a dark MG horror novel that deals with grief, fear, loss, and anxiety. The audiobook narration is done well, capturing the tension perfectly. I liked the characters. The Clackity is reminiscent of Tolkien‘s Gollum, and the evil spirit is truly chilling. I‘m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

The third bookstore we visited was McNally Jackson. Another beautiful bookstore. This was more by accident since it was next to the Nintendo store.

The Paris memoir is a #BlameLitsy buy since everyone seemed to love it.

BarbaraBB Such a cool bookstore! 8mo
AnneCecilie @BarbaraBB I loved it. And I loved that it‘s divided into areas/ countries. 7mo
BarbaraBB Yes! Me too! 7mo

WOW!! Im still catching my breath from this INSANE memoir that had me gripped from the very beginning. Cheryl grew up in the most unusual and chaotic family. Parents and two siblings who were literally fugitives from the law. Cheryl didn‘t know from whom or why they were constantly changing identities and continents until much later in her life. With an over controlling narcissistic father & a passive mother Cheryl lived on the edge 👇🏽

Cinfhen until it all came crashing down upon her and her family. This book is another one for my new favorite new genre

Really fun middle grade read with a rich world of elven tech, mysterious creatures, and powers. I loved the hero, Sophie. Now I‘ll have another fantasy book to recommend my middle schoolers.

Kinda wishing I didn‘t like it so much now that I know it‘s up to nine books in the series. 😅 #BlameLitsy

Weisubei And it's getting better and better with each book 🤩🤩 1y
Nebklvr Sounds great 1y

My first #bookhaul for 2023. #BlameLitsy for my purchase of Legends & Lattes, I've seen it get lots of love here. I really enjoyed World War Z, so I'm looking forward to Devolution.
