Congrats to the sweet and wonderful @Librarybelle on reaching a HUGE Litsy milestone #200KGiveaway

I‘d love a copy of the tagged book. I almost bought it when I was doing a bookstore crawl with another #PhillyGirl @MicheleinPhilly but I put it aside and ever since I‘ve had #FoMo 😜 Thanks for the chance to #FixMyWrong 😂

Librarybelle Thank you! 😊 I‘ve heard so many good things about this book, and I really like the cover of it! 2w

#AyUpAugust I finally gave into #temptation and preordered the new Atwood book. Total case of #FoMo and now I‘m re-reading Handmaid‘s Tale so story will be fresh in my mind.

squirrelbrain I thought I might reread Handmaid‘s Tale too... 2mo
gradcat Who could possibly resist? 😂😂 2mo
Cinfhen Exactly @gradcat you know it‘s going to be blowing up Litsy!!!!! 2mo

Cinfhen That‘s why I‘m trying it in GN format as my reread @squirrelbrain and so far I‘m liking it a lot!!! 2mo
TrishB Like new pic ❤️ I‘ve decided to ignore new book until hype goes away 😁😁 2mo
Cinfhen Thanks @TrishB 😘😘and I thought I could ignore the hype too but I know im gonna want to own/read the book 🤪 2mo
TrishB Yeah, I will probably give in too! 😁 2mo
BookwormM I gave in weeks ago 🤣🤣 2mo
Cinfhen Smart girl @BookwormM it‘s important to know ourselves @TrishB 🧡🧡🧡 2mo
JacqMac I‘m sure once the Listy posts start I‘ll end up giving in, too. Maybe I‘ll borrow it from the library first. Lol 2mo
gradcat @Cinfhen I‘m going to read the posts and try to decide whether I want to read it...I‘ll trust the Litten Reviews for this one. 2mo
Cinfhen I think you can already put your name on the library hold list @JacqMac I‘m super curious to see what the Littens will say @gradcat I haven‘t read any reviews yet!!!! 2mo
Reviewsbylola I need this!! 2mo

#MarchIntoThe70s #WildWorld I‘m listening to this one 🎧. It‘s a #WildWorld for Kya out there in the Marshes .... I don‘t usually like a slow pace , but I‘m liking this one 👍🏻♥️

Pic from internet

Cinfhen I‘m so on the fence about this one ☝🏾 I think the hype is giving me #FoMo 8mo
Cathythoughts @cinfhen I think I was expecting to find it “ so-so” .... I‘m enjoying the audible 👍🏻 8mo
Cinfhen I have an Audible credit, so maybe!?! I‘m not usually good with listening to fiction on #audio 🤭 8mo

Cathythoughts It‘s very slow paced ... so easy to listen & do jobs too .... 🤷🏻‍♀️ ( I‘m not sure though ! I‘d be afraid to push it .... ) I‘m pleasantly surprised, I‘m well able to bail ( but I‘m not bailing 8mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 🧡 Kya... she‘s an unforgettable character 🧡 8mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Cinfhen I LOVED it if that helps you!!! 🤣🤣🤣 Kya is such an unforgettable character 🧡🧡🧡 8mo
Cathythoughts @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks did you read or listen ? Just out of curiosity.... 8mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Cathythoughts I read... I never listen... I just feel weird listening to a book... I‘m old school!! Lol 8mo
Cathythoughts @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I prefer to read , but I get through more books if I listen as well. Plus it‘s great for housework... & some of the narrators are brilliant.... I‘m really enjoying this one more than I thought I would 👍🏻♥️ 8mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Cathythoughts I know.. I‘m weird!! That‘s why I can‘t “read” as many books as other people! I love music so in the car that‘s my music 🎼 time!! I really loved this book 🧡🧡 8mo
Cinfhen If you LOVED it @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘ll probably hate it 😜😜😂🤣😂😘😘 8mo
Tamra I enjoyed the nature descriptions. 8mo
Cathythoughts @Tamra me too ! And I‘m liking the character descriptions too.... 👍🏻 8mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Cinfhen exactly 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 but we ❤️ each other!!!!! 😘 8mo

Mtroiano @Cinfhen oh, she‘s great! The books don‘t seem as long as they are! 8mo

Not book related but makes me smile. This is my 4 month old granddaughter, Logan, watching her daddy and big sis play in the snow. #ilovemygrandkids #yougolo #fomo #babiesoflitsy #cuteness #snowangels

The Quest for Queen Mary | Hugo Vickers, James Pope-Hennessy

I‘m currently buddy reading this with @shawnmooney and we‘re both geeking out on all the juicy royal tidbits (in a BIG way 😂😂). Right, Shawn?

shawnmooney Geeking out ROYALLY! 💞💞👸👸 9mo
NovelGirl82 Oh this looks so good!!! *adds to stack* 9mo

JacqMac Oh, I love royal and juicy. Stacking! 9mo
rubyslippersreads This looks great! 👑 9mo
LeahBergen @NovelGirl82 @JacqMac It‘s been sending us down all sorts of Google rabbit holes as to “who‘s who”. 😆 9mo
LeahBergen @saresmoore Aww! 😆😆 Litsy FOMO is something I deal with on a daily basis! 9mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads I‘m thinking this is definitely your sorta read! 👍🏻 9mo
Dragon Stacking 👑 9mo
CarolynM On my TBR! 9mo
LeahBergen @Dragon @CarolynM I‘m really enjoying the bits about obscure (and super loony) European royalty. 😆😆 9mo
LauraBeth Oh my - I didn‘t know the backstory of this book until now! I‘m going to need the juicy bits! 9mo
saresmoore There are just too many good books! 9mo
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen It sure is! 😊👑 9mo
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen @NovelGirl82 @JacqMac @shawnmooney Is Queen Mary the one who “helped herself “ to any little item she fancied while visiting? (Which meant hiding your silver snuffboxes, etc. before she arrived. 😂) 9mo
rubyslippersreads @saresmoore There are. I also want to read 9mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads Well, it appears that she had that reputation but it‘s not necessarily a proven fact. She DID expect her host to gift her with any tchotchkes she admired, though ... which led to everyone hiding their favourite antiques when she visited. 😆😆 9mo
LeahBergen @LauraBeth There hasn‘t been anything TOO salacious yet (other than a few lords and ladies being caught “doing it” by royals). I‘m really enjoying the bits on the wacky ones like Lady Sybil Grant who, in later life, “spent much time in a caravan or up a tree, communicating with her butler through a megaphone”. That‘s my kinda lady! 😆😆 (edited) 9mo
Moray_Reads Lady Sybil sounds fabulous! What's the point of being in the aristocracy is you can't really invest in being eccentric? 9mo
LeahBergen @Moray_Reads Exactly! 😆😆 9mo
Suet624 There is no way in the world I will ever be able to read all the books that Litsy (and you) have introduced me to. Gah!!!! 9mo
LeahBergen @Suet624 It‘s awful, isn‘t it?? 😫 9mo
ValerieAndBooks Awesome!! I read about this book in the weekend‘s WSJ and thought, I must read it!! Especially now that you and @shawnmooney are enjoying it so much. 9mo
LeahBergen @ValerieAndBooks We‘re having such a good time with it! 👏🏻👏🏻 9mo

Dead Cold | Louise Penny
post image

#BabyItsColdOutside ... well, maybe not actually “dead cold” but this IS Canada after all. 😉

(And I really should read one of the books in this series, especially since I bought this Three Pines mug when we were driving around Quebec‘s Eastern Townships this autumn. Oops! 😆).


Cinfhen Lots of #PennyLove 10mo
Reviewsbylola I‘ve always meant to read Louise Penny. 10mo
Centique I‘ve always meant to start this series too! @Reviewsbylola @LeahBergen 10mo

TrishB I started the series a couple of months ago and love it already! 10mo
inthegreensandblues This series is on my TBR for 2019! 10mo
Zelma I just read her for the first time this year and was so glad I did! I am not the biggest mystery connoisseur but have been changing my tune recently. And her books are so rich and satisfying and the characters are the whole point. The central mystery of each book is almost secondary to character development. 10mo
saresmoore Well, now I want to read them. @Reviewsbylola @Centique @TrishB #FOMO Also, I‘m 💯% positive that a Canada winter would be the death of me. 10mo
Tamra The audios are fun (especially with the first narrator of the series who unfortunately passed away) and I haven‘t listened in chronological order but that was just fine because each one stands on its own. (edited) 10mo
TrishB @Tamra I can never read out of order 😱 10mo
TrishB @saresmoore I like to think I‘d love the snow etc, but really after a few days I‘d be done! 10mo
CarolynM You absolutely should read one, they're great. I think it's worth reading this series in order because the characters and situations develop as they go along. 10mo
Blaire @trishb I can never read out of order either!! @tamra there are at least three that end up coming together as one story esp re Gamache and Beauvoir....I‘d try to do those in order (can‘t remember the numbers). 10mo
Blaire @CarolynM agree! This is my current favorite series. I am savoring it by working through it as slowly as I can stand. @leahbergen I think you would love them! 10mo
rubyslippersreads I've been meaning to read this series too. 😊 10mo
LeahBergen @TrishB @Blaire Oh, I canNOT read out of order either! 😧 @CarolynM (edited) 10mo
LeahBergen @Cinfhen @Zelma @Tamra And now I‘m even more eager to try one. Thanks! 10mo
TrishB Someone gave me a book as a present in work last year (well thought!) but when I got it home it was number 3 in a series 🤷‍♀️ I still need to buy 1 & 2 and she‘s asked me if I‘ve read it yet.... 10mo
Reviewsbylola I‘m always up for a good buddy read. 😄 10mo
inthegreensandblues It does seem like a buddy read might go over well. 😁 10mo
kspenmoll I adore her books.❤️ want to reread... 10mo

julesG @Cinfhen But you're not a Millennial😁 so don't worry about it. 😉 13mo
Cinfhen Hahahahaha 😜😘😘 @julesG #Truth (edited) 13mo
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen and @julesG you crack me up 😂😂😂 13mo
julesG @Kalalalatja You're the right age to have #FOMO, but you probably know better. 13mo
Kalalalatja @julesG it really depends, parties I have no problem missing, but literary events give me major FOMO 😄😄 13mo
julesG @Kalalalatja That I can relate to. 13mo
Loric I enjoyed the first in this series. Have the others but haven‘t started them... too many books so little time 😩 13mo
