The title novella in this collection, by Chalon Linton, was a sweet way to end the holidays and decade. This adds one more hour to my #24b42020 count and finishes me at 18 hours. I had so much fun celebrating with you guys! ♥️

The Boxcar Children | Gertrude Chandler Warner

Hello all! Long time no read! Graduate school has definitely taken it‘s toll on my life (also I forgot my Litsy password 🤦🏼‍♀️) but hopefully I‘ll have more time moving forward! This weekend I had the opportunity to read lots of books; mostly children‘s, but some other stuff too. The most nostalgic for me was definitely The Boxcar Children. Have you read it? What did you think?

Linsy Great stack! 13mo
hollylynnbee I'm so glad I'm not the only one who still reads children books. 13mo

LauraLovesLiterature @hollylynnbee Children‘s literature is probably my favorite genre! And I think I get more out of it now than I did as a child! 13mo
hollylynnbee @LauraLovesLiterature I completely agree! Roald Dahl is one of my favorite authors! Matilda has been and always will be my favorite book. 13mo
tpixie The books that moved me most are the ones I read in childhood! 11mo

FINALLY got this book. Really been getting back into #poetry, but I also am hoping to influence our teachers to use it more by selecting more contemporary pieces. "Dinosaurs in the Hood" is transformative! Also, if you're in Chicago swing by Volumes Bookcafe, you'll love it! #teachersoflitsy #itsLIT

ElishaLovesBooks Where is that cafe located? 2y

ElishaLovesBooks @MisterWhitaker Nice! I‘ll have to check it out! 2y

Sorry for my long absence! Grad school is absolutely incredible, but I‘m very busy; in fact, I only finished one book last month! It feels like a failure since over the summer I‘d regularly finish two or three a week, but I have to be realistic about my time.

I wanted to put something spooky on my October TBR, & Coraline seemed like the perfect choice! Are you reading anything creepy or scary this month?

The Boundless | Kenneth Oppel
post image

I absolutely murdered my TBR this month: I got through almost every single book and I at least started all of them. Even though I read a lot, nothing really blew me away. My favorite was The Boundless by Kenneth Oppel, but I also enjoyed a book I read for work called The Servant by James Hunter. I also started A Darker Shade of Magic, which is very good, but I didn't have time to finish it this month. Ratings in the comments if you're interested!

Tried to put myself on a book buying ban for the rest of the month (it's less than a week!), but somehow accidentally on purpose ended up at Barnes & Noble after church today?! Whoops... #sorrynotsorry

Picked up some well-loved classics at one of my favorite bookshops a few weeks ago. I love used books. There's something wonderful about reading an old book & thinking about who might've owned or read it before you, & how it impacted them.

My TBR progress has been minimal this month; I'm only halfway through. I'm trying to finish at least one more book before the end of the month, but we'll see 🤷‍♀️

Picked up my first Penguin Orange today at my favorite used bookshop, Mr. K's. This collection is absolutely beautiful & since there are only 12 of them, I'm hoping to collect them all before the end of the semester. What are you currently reading?

monalyisha I love these, too. Now I kind of want to collect them. 😂 What have you done?! 3y
LauraLovesLiterature @monalyisha I'm so sorry lol. I do the same thing when I see pretty book collections on bookstagram lol. That's how I started my Barnes & Noble leatherbound children's classics collection & my collection of Penguin Deluxe Classics. 3y

monalyisha @LauraLovesLiterature I have the Shirley Jackson one so I guess I'm already on my way? ? I'm not one for collecting, but the artwork's just so cool on these! The only other books I regret not buying when I had the chance are the Penguin Threads collection -- *especially* that edition of "The Secret Garden." #regrets ? 3y
monalyisha Oh, and the Penguin Drop Caps collection is really awesome, too. 🤤 3y
LauraLovesLiterature @monalyisha Some of the Penguin Threads are available on Amazon! And YES I adore the Drop Caps, I'm currently saving up for them! 3y

Mehso-so

So this was... intriguing. I'm interested in the world Caine has built, but I'm also kind of confused? I'm not sure if concepts aren't explained well or if I'm just not paying enough attention. Either way, it took me about 50 pages to properly get into the book. After that it was a fairly quick read. I'll probably read the next 2 books, because I hate leaving things unfinished, however I don't feel the urge to read them right now.

3.5/5 🌟
