Goodbye, Vitamin | Rachel Khong

I feel like I was a little late to the party with this one, but I‘m glad I got to it!

A bittersweet read from a daughter‘s point of view as she sees her dad go through the beginning stages of dementia.

My favorite parts were the sections of journal her dad kept with memories from her childhood. “Today you asked, what do germs taste like?”

Igor approved.

#LitsyAtoZ, #BBRC for “swap”, thanks @mcipher ! It‘s a pick! #Igor

CBee Hi 👋🏻 Igor! I love your kitties ♥️♥️ 1mo

I don‘t read a lot of mysteries or detective books. I think this may have ended up on my TBR because it takes place in New Orleans. There‘s a lady private detective, trying to find out what happened to a missing guy after Hurricane Katrina‘s floods.

The first half was just so-so for me, and I thought of bailing. But the second half picked up and I started caring about some of the characters. Between a Pick and So-So.

JoScho Yay! Naked kitties! 7mo

TK421 I don't want to alarm you, but there appears to be a chupacabra paw coming out of the blanket between the kitties. 7mo

A bit of cute this morning with my new current read. It‘s my title letter A for #LitsyAtoZ2019. It‘s really good so far! (It feels good to be pulling down and reading some books that have lived in my TBR shelf for over a year!)

Still snoozing cuteness brought to you by #Froedrick, #Igor, and #Sietje. 🐱🐱🐶

It‘s a good morning for snuggles and starting a new book by an author I saw speak at #TXBookFest last weekend.

saresmoore I just don‘t know how to feel about nipples on covers. 🤷‍♀️ 10mo
Soubhiville @saresmoore lol, I agree. There‘s another cover version I prefer, but this is what my library had. 10mo
CouronneDhiver Ha! Weird cover 10mo

The Boy on the Bridge | M. R. Carey
post image

For the first few chapters I thought I wasn‘t going to enjoy this one, which was disappointing as I loved GWATG. But as the story picked up I came to really like Khan and Greaves, and the different track this took than the first book. This wasn‘t quite as strong for me, but I still liked it a lot.

First book in the new house! Whew! We made it to Austin. I‘m sitting on a blanket on the floor waiting for the Mr to get up so we can start unloading the truck. It‘s not even 7 am and I can‘t wait to go to bed tonight 😂😅😴. Also can‘t wait to open my book boxes and pull out my physical copy of this baby! Kindle is nice, paper is nicer!

Ugh, this book is dragging for me... I‘m about halfway through, but if it doesn‘t pick up soon I‘m not sure I‘ll finish it.

I bailed on Rowling‘s other non-HP books too... I see a pattern. Too bad because I adore HP!

#Igor snuggles before work. 🐱💙

cariashley I like these better on audio. Also 😻 12mo
VeganCleopatra This may sound weird but the back of Igor's head is adorable. 😏 12mo
Soubhiville @VeganCleopatra haha, I think so too 😁 12mo

hgrimes I liked this book ok, but it really dragged for me in the middle. I‘m glad I got through it though because the next 2 books in the series are really good! I especially enjoyed the third one which added a lot of depth and backstory to the characters. 12mo

Never Let Me Go | Kazuo Ishiguro
post image

I‘ve been mulling over this review for a few days. I really enjoyed the story itself, and the premise especially was intriguing to me. But there was something lacking. I think it‘s just that Ishiguro‘s writing style wasn‘t as engaging as I would have liked. While I very much wanted to know what was going to happen, I felt disconnected from the characters. Maybe this was his intention? Still a pick, but I‘m not sure I‘ll read more by him.

Soubhiville #caturday #catsofLitsy #Igor says Good Morning! 1y
Foragingfantasy I just noticed you are reading Sweetness at the bottom of the pie! Have you just started it? I adore this series, when I‘m in a rut or burnt out, Flavia to the rescue! 1y
BookNerd9906 I completely agree with your review. I felt the same way. 1y

Moray_Reads I loved it the first time I read it but the second time I had feelings similar to yours 🤔 1y
Soubhiville @Foragingfantasy I‘m about 3 hours into the audio for sweetness. It‘s cute, Flavia is a hoot. I found some of the series at a booksale and decided to start at the beginning. 1y
kyraleseberg Totally agree with your review! 1y
MommyWantsToReadHerBook Imo, don't judge his other books by this one... I gave it away the other day as I just hated it. Try A Pale View of Hills perhaps? 1y
Soubhiville @MommyWantsToReadHerBook if his other works are different I‘d be willing to try! Thanks for the recommendation 😊 1y
RadicalReader @Soubhiville gorgeous eyes on the beautiful cat!! What‘s its name? 1y
Soubhiville @RadicalReader this is Igor. He‘s very sweet and gentle. 1y
RadicalReader @Soubhiville cats are forever cute I see now why they have the tag CatsofLitsy because they‘re always cute, cuddly and photogenic 1y
