A surprisingly light book, I really enjoyed it. I liked the characterisation of the furies, because they‘re usually forces of nature.

Wow! This is a very generous #giveaway and I‘m excited to enter for the chance to win two #BOTM books from these huge stacks! Several of these are on my radar, but I think I would pick Woman No. 17 and Swing Time.

My favorite #botm I have read so far is probably The Heart‘s Invisible #Furies by John Boyne. It tells such a beautiful, heart-wrenching story and it gave me all-the-feels in the best way! #Stephsbotmgiveaway

Reviewsbylola HIF was my favorite book last year. SO good! Thanks for entering! 4y

Jess7 #Furies is a book you will be super happy you read! Sooo good 4y
CouronneDhiver I‘m in the middle of that Boyne novel and (much to my surprise) loving it! 👍🏽 4y
Reviewsbylola The Boyne is AMAZING. 4y
laurieluna @wanderinglynn I've read one other by her last year, and I loved it! Queenie hennessy is on my tbr 😄 4y
laurieluna @RachelO just come out. Got it for £6.99 on book depository, usually £15! 4y
laurieluna @Jess7 @CouronneDhiver @Reviewsbylola and it's reactions like this to it that convinced me to buy. I have to say it wasn't the cover I thought I'd get and I don't like this one as much... 4y
laurieluna @Wanderingwithwords thank you 😄 x 4y
Jess7 I think that is the paperback cover. The hardcover one is pink in the US 4y
CouronneDhiver I think that cover might “match” the story better than the US one though... 😊 4y
laurieluna @Jess7 @CouronneDhiver on the paperback listing it was an off white with blue detailing. I think it was the UK hardback cover and they must have just used the image for the paperback listing. Doesn't change the story inside 😊 4y
TrishB Great choices 👍🏻❤️ 4y
laurieluna @TrishB Tin Man was your influence! 😄 4y
TrishB I loved it so much! I‘m just scared sometimes when the hype builds! But I hope you like it 💕 4y
laurieluna @TrishB if you loved it I'm sure I'll enjoy it! 😊 4y

MarriedtoMrT Just finished tagged and it was awesome! 4y
wanderinglynn Thanks @tjwill for reminding me we can see each other‘s tbr! After looking at that, I‘d highly recommend 4y
MarriedtoMrT Also I see you have this on your TBR. It was really fun and the audio is great if you‘re into that. 4y
dylanisreading @tjwill Ohh I think I'm in the mood for something like The Raven Boys. It's been on my tbr foreverrr. 4y
dylanisreading @MarriedtoMrT That sounds so good! I'm going to request it from the library. I listened to Forever Your Earl not that long ago because the narrator is fantastic. Thank you! 4y
dylanisreading @wanderinglynn I forgot that I have a tbr on here haha. I wasn't able to finish Written in Red last year before it automatically returned to the library. I shall borrow a paper copy this time. 4y
dylanisreading @MinDea I've heard so many good things about both. Thank you! 4y
tjwill @Bianca I love the whole series of the Raven Cycle. I hope you will love it too! I second @MinDea about #Furies too. It was amazing. 4y

A huge thank you to @jenniferw88 who kindly sent me a care package last week after hearing I was unwell (the mini eggs seemed urgent use to my and my husband!) And also to @Kaye who has been sending me lovely chatty mails to keep my spirits up. Litsy people really are the nicest of people!

Jess7 Hope everything is ok! #Furies is a great book! 5y
Kaye Thank you Jo. Glad to email with you anytime. Give me a holler. I‘m on here every day. 5y
jenniferw88 You're welcome! I have stayed in hospital for lengthy periods of time & my hands get dry so thought the hand cream might come in useful! 5y
Itchyfeetreader @jenniferw88 the hand cream is lovely and will be coming with me when I go back in, in a fortnight! Thanks again @Kaye - will do @jess7 I will be thank you - just a couple of months of treatment to get through first! Plenty of reading time coming up! 5y

Here are the books from my bracket that I own, picked to move and, and did move on. I picked a total of 30 correct which isn‘t so great especially since I had Virginia in my final game. Now it‘s all down to Nova.

Which book should I start with? Behold the Dreamers is a sub for Stay With Me which I already read.

Reviewsbylola What an amazing stack. You should just close your eyes and pick. I don‘t think you can go wrong! 5y
WanderingBookaneer I devoured in two sittings, but only because I started it in the morning and had to go to work. 5y

Cupofjo Virginia has a lot of ppl upset! Lol! I‘m with @WanderingBookaneer and say Beartown (for me it had a slow beginning; but you‘ll get through it before you know it and be properly hooked!) 5y
tjwill #Furies is amazing, but you probably won‘t want to rush through it. It is a faster read than it looks, but I also wanted to stop to think or laugh or cry about several parts too. 5y
emilyhaldi @Cupofjo glad to hear you say Beartown had a slow beginning bc I‘m 50 pages in and having a hard time... but I‘m going to stick with it! 5y
Rcoco Beautiful stack.... 5y
Cupofjo @emilyhaldi it will be worth it! it‘s a great book and I highly recommend it.. but also not my favorite of his 5y
JenP @WanderingBookaneer I‘m going to read that one (Beartown) next! Thanks (edited) 5y
JenP @Cupofjo Thanks, I‘m going to go with that next! 5y
Cinfhen So many great choices.... 5y
Cupofjo @JenP yay!! 5y
britt_brooke @Cupofjo @emilyhaldi It took me about 100 pages to get into Beartown but I ended up loving it! 5y
JenP @britt_brooke @Cupofjo @emilyhaldi I am liking it but it did take me a while (also about 100 pages) to really get into it 5y
britt_brooke @JenP Oh good! Once you get past that point, it really picks up. Happy you‘re enjoying it! 5y
Cupofjo @JenP I had forgotten how many pages in before it hooked me, but so glad to hear you‘re enjoying it! 5y

I loved the unexpected bits of humor in this one.

Jess7 #Furies was one of my favorite books I read this year! I got it as a #BOTM while ago. So many of us love this one here on Litsy! Tagging a few I know that loved it! @britt_brooke @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @MinDea and I think @TheLibrarian they may have other recommendations for you! I enjoyed #TheBoyintheStripedPajamas too. I want to read #JohnBoyne‘s other books - especially this one: 5y
britt_brooke I LOVED this book so much. One of my top reads last year and one I often recommend. Honestly, it‘s probably an all-time favorite. 💚 I didn‘t care for The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, but I‘m curious about his other books. (edited) 5y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I loved this one too!!! I haven‘t read any of his others, but I want to!! 5y
Ehbooklover Me too! 5y

#TheHeartsInvisibleFuries by #JohnBoyne is one of the best books I‘ve read this year. It is equal parts heartbreaking and heartwarming. Words cannot accurately express how phenomenal this book is. It tells the journey of #CyrilAvery throughout his life beginning in #Ireland. Cyril endured so much pain in his life, but also found so much love. If you haven‘t read this book, you absolutely #mustread it. It‘s even better than the hype. #MagicalMarch

Jess7 This book is now also available in paperback. #JPBookreview #Bookreview #Readthisnow #JPFavorite #Furies #Lifejourney #humanrights #LBGYQ (edited) 5y
