Ok here's my retry at this post for #LMPBC #GroupX

@BookwormAHN @LiteraryinLawrence @MaleficentBookDragon

Mrs. Fletcher and We Sold Our Souls have Gen X main characters. Forrest Gump was a huge movie, and I've heard the novel is a bit different than the film? What do y'all think?

BookwormAHN My pick would be We Sold Our Souls but Mrs. Fletcher sounds hilarious. 1mo
MaleficentBookDragon I agree with @BookwormAHN We Sold Our Souls or Mrs. Fletcher would be my picks. 1mo
BookishPiper Sounds like we have a winner. 1mo
LiteraryinLawrence I‘m fine with either 1mo

Here are my choices for #GroupX
All's Well - the author is Gen X
Dave Grohl - because why not
White Noise - 80s nostalgia

LiteraryinLawrence I am most interested in All‘s Well, then The Storyteller and then White Noise. Cool choices! 1mo
BookwormAHN @MaleficentBookDragon retagging you in case you missed it. 1mo
MaleficentBookDragon Sorry I did miss it. I vote for All‘s Well. I think Storyteller would be great in audio. 1mo

Here are some options for our #LMPBC #GroupX
Why are these Gen X for me?
The Change = Gen X age MCs
Eight Perfect Murders = Gen X age MC
Killers of a Certain Age + Gen X author and older MCs
Ready Player Two = Gen X 80s Pop Culture and Gaming
Bookish People = Gen X age MC

Any of these sound good to you all?

@BookwormAHN @BookishPiper @LiteraryinLawrence

LiteraryinLawrence These are great options! I would be happy to read any but here is my preference order. The Change, Killers of a Certain Age, Bookish People, Ready Player Two, and last 8 Perfect Murders only because I read it already (though it was great). I‘m curious what everyone else thinks! 1mo
BookwormAHN All of these sound good to me too. I've read the Change and 8 Perfect Murders but would happily reread them, especially The Change. That one would be fun to discuss 😺 1mo
BookishPiper I have Bookish People and Killers of a Certain Age in my TBR 1mo

What a delightful story! I enjoyed exploring the sea realm with Mina as she navigated its depths and discovered its truth as the rescuer, not just the rescued. She was a wonderful character who embodied the best characteristics of a coming-of-age novel. The writing was lyrical and sweet while still carrying a strong message of faith-in-self, honor, and family. I highly recommend for young adults middle-grade and up. 4/5⭐️ #LMPBC #GroupX #Round15

Readergrrl @Endowarrior21 I apologize for just mailing this LMPBC book out today as I had meant to do so last week. I had a student pick it up off my desk to just “read a chapter” during study hall, but she loved it so much that I lent it to her for the long weekend. She got it back to me today, still in pristine condition, and I mailed it off today. I found it to be a very quick read! 3mo
DrexEdit Cool! Looking forward to this read. I also love the photo you posted. The aquarium at Dallas used to have a whole tank of these leafy sea dragons and they were my favorite creature to visit when I used to live near there. 3mo
Readergrrl @DrexEdit I enjoyed finding the photo. These are such lovely creatures and matched the vibe for my imagining of the book. I hope you enjoy it. A very nice retelling of a Korean fairytale that I‘ve not familiar with so I‘m going to go read that now! 🌊🐉 (edited) 3mo
KateReadsYA Awwww I'm glad your student got to join in and loved it!!! I can't wait to reread it in the future. 3mo
Endowarrior21 I love the picture and can't wait to read the book. 3mo

Just finished these two delightful novels for my#Round15 #GroupT and #GroupX #LMPBC selections. School just started for me, so I hope to have them in the mail by the weekend. Also will post my reviews this weekend. Enjoyed reading these while being off the grid up in Canada this summer. Now I‘m home (came back to CT Sunday night; school started Monday) and will be back to typical Litsy garrulous self!

Kimzey Looking forward to reading I Am the Messenger! 3mo
