merelybookish Initial observation. A lot of short story collections! 14h
mklong I am looking forward to spending some time with the list tonight. There are several on that are new to me, and while I love rooting for my favorites, it‘s finding those new gems that is my favorite part of this comp. (edited) 14h

merelybookish @mklong Agreed! And as usual I haven't read that many on the list! 14h
Cinfhen Waiting to hear what @BarbaraBB thinks!!! Lots of short stories and a few NEVER heard of titles. Happy to see 13h
BarbaraBB I‘ve only read three any have another four on my shelves! Of many I‘ve never even heard. And many short stories indeed. But I‘ve already noticed some I am going to stack! Love it! 13h
Ruthiella I‘ve only read 5 of the 60+. I just put Ducks, Newburyport on hold at the library. I have a feeling it will make the shortlist plus I am super curious about it myself!😀 13h
merelybookish @Cinfhen That's been on my TBR for a while! 13h
merelybookish @BarbaraBB I've read 8. And don't plan to read The Testaments or the Marlon James. But that leaves plenty of options! 13h
merelybookish @Ruthiella I ordered it from the library a while ago but was in no mood to tackle it once it showed up! 🤣 But I might give it another go, maybe over the Xmas holidays. I agree that it seems short-list material. 13h
BarbaraBB What do you think @Cinfhen ? (edited) 13h
BarbaraBB @merelybookish Eight, that‘s good! I am going to read the ones I own and then wait for the shortlist before buying any new books 😉 13h
Emilymdxn Im on 11 plus I‘m currently half way through listening to the water dancer! I‘d love to read all of them cause I love reading lists and comparing them with people but holy budget batman. Home remedies and we cast a shadow are on my library ebook service so I‘ll definitely be able to read those and should be able to track down a couple of others! 13h
merelybookish @Emilymdxn I think I can access most of them through the library but there's always a few obscure titles that are elusive. 12h
Emilymdxn @merelybookish because of my work hours I can almost never get to the library physically, I use library ebooks and audiobooks a lot but that limits my choice a lot more than reading paper books :( 12h
LauraJ That‘s a long list! I‘ve only read two so far. 8h
batsy Haha, well played! And thank you for sharing, going to peruse the list in detail 🧐 8h
Redwritinghood I can‘t believe it‘s out already! It seems like we just finished last year‘s. 5h
Cinfhen I‘ve read 12 @BarbaraBB @merelybookish of the 12 I‘d only like to see 3 continue On Earth, Girl/Woman and Childrens Archive. I own 5 more ( but not sure if I‘ll read MJ or Ducks yet) but will try to get to the other 3: Nickel Boys, Trust Exorcise, Golden State. There are a few I wanted to read regardless but I‘m not planning on buying books just from this long list. BTW: How gorgeous are those field notebooks featuring the National Parks?!?! 3h
BarbaraBB Wow, 12!! I was checking out the reviews of the books and had noticed how many you read but 12 is incredible! On Earth and the Children are faves of mine too. I have a copy of girl/woman and am looking forward to it. I am looking forward to True Exercise and Golden State too, among others. I have stacked many more but am trying to buy no more books this year 🙀 @Cinfhen (edited) 3h
batsy So that list is really interesting. I've read one so far 🤣 I'm worried about all of us who haven't read Ducks... How will we have time for the rest of the books 😅🦆 41m

I thought I‘d give you a behind the scenes look at one of my book photo layouts. Things don‘t always go smoothly. Sometimes family members try to eat my props.

The Cheerleaders is a well-developed mystery packed with emotional depth and a compelling storyline.

Rating: 3/5 stars.

I am a Kasie West fan, don't get me wrong but this book? Something you pick up, read and either bail or pick up, read and finish because you love the author.

I wasn‘t aware that this one was banned.. I didn‘t care for it at all... Banned for addressing teen suicide... 💔💔

Reviewsbylola I loved this one when I read it. So powerful. I am not surprised it‘s been banned unfortunately. 4d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Reviewsbylola I‘ve read other books addressing this issue and I‘m not sure why I disliked this one so much... 🤷🏼‍♀️ 4d
OriginalCyn620 I loved this one! 4d

mom2bugnbee Huh. I thought this might become required reading for high schools, since most require an anti-bullying curriculum. 3d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @mom2bugnbee I‘ll tag you in the link... maybe it is incorrect 🤷🏼‍♀️ 3d
mom2bugnbee I'm sure this is right. Gotta love how the book that was banned for atheism is immediately followed by the Bible. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And Captain Underpants? Mercy. 3d
LibrarianRyan It‘s been banned frequently because some think it glorifies teen suicide. It got heavier banning after the TV show. I personally liked this book and thought it was a great way for adults to talk to teens about the bad things in life. 3d
mom2bugnbee @LibrarianRyan Totally agree. I didn't watch the show b/c I heard so many bad things about it. My oldest read it at, age 15 or 16, loved it, & also didn't watch the show, for the same reasons. 1d
LibrarianRyan @mom2bugnbee the show wasn‘t bad... I liked seeing what was happening with the other kids. But I think it lost something to draw the time line out from one day to a month. And it left some things get more graphic or gossip girl like then I would have expected. 1d
