Wowee! Congratulations on your milestone, and thank you for this giveaway, @REPollock 💖 The genres that are a #hardpass for me are romance & horror. Romance stories tend to annoy & enrage me and horror scares the $h!t out of me.

So happy to be a part of your #LitsyFam 💖

Congrats to @REPollock on reaching 500 followers 🎉🎉🎉 Thanks for celebrating with a #giveaway500 🙌🏻😃
When it comes to a #HardPass I‘m pretty quick to say no thanks to Romance, Cozies & YA.

GlassAsDiamonds Hard pass on Romance, Cozy‘s and YA?? 🤔🤔🤔 Feels like a challenge! 😜 I think my only real hard pass is true horror because I am a WIMP!! 1w

BarbaraBB A heavy one.. did you like it? I still haven‘t tried to read it! 2w
Theaelizabet Love (if that‘s even the right word) this play. There are so many interesting productions of it. 2w
gradcat Love this play, too...you‘ve seen it performed @Theaelizabet ? I‘ve seen the movie, but not a live performance. ♥️ 2w

CoffeeNBooks @BarbaraBB I really like this play! I've read it several times, and we read this in my AP Literature class every year. 2w
Theaelizabet @gradcat I‘ve seen the film and a couple of decent college productions. The text is so rich; there is so much to explore. 2w
BarbaraBB Well maybe I should try then. I‘ve read some of his other books and they left me clueless ☺️ 2w
Cinfhen Sorry #HardPass just doesn‘t appeal to me 🙄😜 2w
gradcat @Theaelizabet I agree with you. I think this text is one of those that lends itself to interpretation...it‘s all in the eyes of the director, I think... 1w

I had to read this book twice during my college years. The first time I read it, I HATED it. I thought it was quite possibly the most boring book I‘d ever read. (Or if I‘m honest, ever attempted to read. I never finished it. 😆) The second time, obviously I dreaded it. And wouldn‘t you know, it was actually pretty good the second time around. #ownerofalonelyheart #anglophileapril

emilyhaldi I‘m not sure I even want to read this once 2mo
bewareofwords Oh man, I hated it just as much the second time... 2mo
Karisa I liked it too. It was the first book I'd read that made me feel the absolute need to highlight and make comments in the margins. 2mo

Cinfhen Yeah, that‘s a #HardPass 🙄 2mo
BiblioLitten Really? I read it years back and had the same thoughts... boring. 2mo
mspixieears I read it for uni and hated it (topic matter) but can‘t deny it‘s well-written. 2mo
Mdargusch I read this in school and I do not have any fond memories. Or any memories. 😜 2mo
LiterRohde Love it. 2mo

I have to say that this character can definitely be considered an #EasyLover when she's in a bind or is too fucked up 😂😂 I mean she did literally get too drunk and ended up somehow having a baby with her tank.

Reviewsbylola Lmao! 🤣🤣🤣 3mo
Cinfhen Yeah, not for me #HardPass 😂🤣 3mo
Mdargusch Whoa! That‘s crazy and she looks crazy too. 3mo

This seems to be some kind of graphic novel/comic series? I know @Cinfhen won‘t be reading it, but have you seen it @britt_brooke ? It‘s on sale for $2.99 on Kindle. #90sSpringFling

britt_brooke Thanks for tagging me! I‘ve looked into it, but the hard copy is expensive and reviews are very mixed. I think I‘ll grab this deal and check it out. 3mo
Cinfhen Yeah, #HardPass but I am curious about your thoughts @britt_brooke 3mo
Cinfhen Are you buying it, Meg??? 3mo

Megabooks @britt_brooke Great! I‘m very curious myself, but I‘m on the fence @Cinfhen 🤷🏻‍♀️ I sometimes like graphic novels more than written books, so it‘s very tempting! I‘ll decide tonight. (edited) 3mo
DaveNeufeld I read this when it was coming out monthly and was pretty underwhelmed. I believe part 3 is either still coming out monthly now as well, or maybe it‘s finished already. 3mo
Megabooks @DaveNeufeld Thanks for the input. I don‘t think I‘m going to pick it up right now. 👍🏻 3mo

So that happened... or it didn't? I'm not really sure what this was... lots of masturbation, a sort of freak show, a family in France? Yeah... I know that I got to the end of the book and that's just about all I figured out. It was well worded, even if I'm not really sure what I was reading? Umm....

I read just over half of the stories and while they were extremely well written and rather comical in places, I simply couldn‘t bring myself to finish. Not enough human-character to-human-character dynamics; far too much about hunting and horse-racing and buying horses. Oh my God!

#MarchIntoThe70s #CarryOnMyWaywardSon I‘m in Waterstones & I havnt read this one ... but the title kind of fits .... oh & @TrishB - thought of you when I saw there are 1500 pages in this one 👍🏻

Cinfhen Are u serious?????? 1500 pages .....#HardPass and #MinorPanicAttack #PageCountPhobia 😬😱😰 3mo
squirrelbrain That‘s the book that‘s been on my TBR shelf the longest @Cinfhen ! It‘s size is rather off-putting... 😬 3mo
tpixie Apparently the author didn‘t have an editor? Or how long was it before editing?? 😆😂🤣🤪 3mo

MicheleinPhilly A friend of mine just received this from someone as a gift and she was like, “When the hell do you think I‘ll have time to read this???” 3mo
Cathythoughts @Cinfhen it would want to be very good 👍🏻... at that length I‘d need to be on a desert island for a spell 😳 3mo
Cathythoughts @squirrelbrain it‘s sooo long 🤭.... OMG 3mo
Cathythoughts @tpixie oh man !! 😂 3mo
Bklover Ummmm....I don‘t think so. 😳😳😳 3mo
batsy It's brilliant! Massive, but so good... You won't notice the pages 😉😁 3mo
TrishB It‘s a really good read 😁😁 I preferred An Equal Music, but this was good too. Did take me about a week though! 3mo
TrishB @batsy definitely! 3mo
Cathythoughts @TrishB @batsy I wouldn‘t doubt you Trish or Suba ... ye have it read !! Fair play 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3mo
Cathythoughts @MicheleinPhilly your friend asks a legitimate question for sure 👍🏻... when 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
Cathythoughts @Bklover me neither .... although we have 2 good Littens saying it‘s brilliant!! Oh no 🤦🏻‍♀️... why did I ever take that picture In Waterstones (edited) 3mo
Bklover @Cathythoughts I know what you mean. This is how I end up with a zillion books on my shelf waiting for me. I keep thinking someday.... 3mo
tpixie @MicheleinPhilly lol. 😂 3mo
Tamra I too read good things about it, but I think at that size it‘s better for kindle! 💪🏾 3mo
Cathythoughts @Tamra good point 👍🏻. Although..... if I actually read it , I would like a hard copy on my shelf , so I could casually say “ oh yeah.. I‘ve read that one “ ...... except I doubt that will ever happen 😳😂😂 3mo
Tamra @Cathythoughts better get both! 😜 3mo
Cathythoughts @tamra 👍🏻😂 3mo
LeahBergen I‘ll chime in with @batsy and @TrishB - it‘s really good! 👍🏻 3mo
writerlibrarian Massive but so so so good. It's also well designed chapters and parts wise. Took me about 3 weeks on and off. I loved it. It didn't feel massive at all. 3mo
erzascarletbookgasm Wow, a real chunkster! 😧 I wonder how long it would take me to finish reading. 3mo
Cathythoughts @LeahBergen @writerlibrarian it does sound excellent 👍🏻♥️ 3mo
Cathythoughts @erzascarletbookgasm are you thinking about it Jessie ?! It‘s just so long 😳 3mo
Reggie It‘s soooo good. Yes 1500 pages but so much happens and I was never bored. 3mo
BiblioLitten I couldn‘t finish it because my exams came up. I hope to pick it up in the future. 3mo

This book was BLEAK. All the trigger warnings I can think of, it is the semi-autobiographical story of a young gay boy coming of age in an extremely LGBTQ-unfriendly, poor village in northern France. This is my book for the author who is new to you category for #booked2019 and #LetterL for #LitsyAtoZ (in translation)

Cinfhen Like “A Little Life”bleak????? I don‘t think I can handle that!!! 5mo
bookwrm526 @Cinfhen I haven‘t actually been able to bring myself to read A Little Life. This one has little glimpses of hope, but there‘s a lot of abuse 5mo
Cinfhen That‘s a definite #HardPass 😢 I don‘t want to read about any kind of physical abuse ~ thanks for the warning. I‘ve now #unstacked 5mo
