My suggested November reads. I am sure there will be mystery add-ons. Some I do not plan to complete in November, but to carry into December. The buddy reads I will catch up- books coming by weekend.

Bookwormjillk Is that the new Agatha Christie biography? I just bought that on audio and am hoping to get to it in November too. 1mo
kspenmoll @Bookwormjillk It is. Wondering if audio will be better?! Not sure I will finish by end of the month- non fiction usually takes me longer to read. Will keep you posted! 1mo

I started this around October last year as a #Literati pick, but for some reason life got in the way so I didn‘t finish it, although it was very interesting! A #nonfiction #travelogue of sorts about death and burial rituals around the globe. Let‘s see if I can add this to my already too-long TBR for this month. 😁 #ScarathlonDailyPrompts #PhotoChallenge Day 12: #Grave

Do you subscribe to a bookish box? If so which one and do you love it? I subscribe to #BOTM and have skipped the past 3 months 🤔

iread2much I‘m thinking about it for next year, I like the ones with special editions of the books and pretty book edges 5mo
Blerdgal_Fenix I have been dying to start one for 3 mons. Might just get myself as a bday gift (edited) 5mo
Zuhkeeyah I‘m always tempted by those that have books with sprayed edges. 5mo

LoverOfLearning I'm interested in the ones with the nicknacs but I know I have no space for them and honestly I don't like clutter. So I actively have conflicts with myself but I've done good. I've never purchased one with nicknacs!!! Good for me. 🤣🤣🤣 5mo
Eggs That was fun to look at! I‘ve had great luck with my 2022 BOTM selections; i am grateful for that! 5mo
marleed I loved the 2022 botm selections and I‘m awaiting the month I actually skip - or even just select a single book! 5mo
5feet.of.fury Some of the owlcrate editions have been gorgeous! I‘ve thought about the Hunt a Killer ones before, too. I should have done it when I had roommates and we could have solved a murder as a bonding experience 😅 5mo
Amandajoy I subscribe to My TBR from Book Riot. They call it “stitch fix for books” because you have your own bibliologist who picks the books for you based on your tastes and feedback. It‘s quarterly and you can have the books shipped to you. I do the recommendation only level, so they just send me the recommendations and I can get them however I choose. 5mo
BarbaraJean This list is so enticing!! I‘ve tried OwlCrate and Once Upon a Book Club… and one other I can‘t remember (Page Habit, maybe?). My problem is always that the book selections are hit or miss for me—and while the bookish items are fun, in the end I can‘t justify the cost (and then all the stuff I accumulate)! I loved the concept of Once Upon a Book Club—if I‘d connected with their picks more, I might have talked myself into that one longer term! 5mo
Jess I love my #literati subscription. Each month there 14 books to choose from. I hear you with #botm. I feel like I skip more than I fill a box these days. 5mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @iread2much me too!! ❤️📚 5mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Blerdgal_Fenix you should!! ❤️🎈 5mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Zuhkeeyah they are pretty!! I sent you something so be on the lookout 👀 (edited) 5mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Jess awesome!! I‘ll check into that one! Thank you! 5mo
ICantImReading @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I also have an #AuthenticBooks subscription and love it! I don‘t get one very often (it‘s easy to skip) since it‘s a little more expensive, but they do a beautiful job pairing thoughtful and high-quality self care items that go with the theme of the book. They usually have three books to choose from per month and they‘re usually signed by the author! I definitely recommend checking it out 🥰 (edited) 5mo

In Ancestor Trouble, Newton explores her family history alongside musings about heredity, epigenetics, and more. This book defies genre categorization in the best way. I think it‘s a good look at acknowledging and reckoning with the past in a way that would serve us well if more people did it. #literati

shawnmooney I‘ve been interested in this book for a long while, and I‘m glad to hear you liked it. Might I invite you to come on Zoom and chat with me about it for 10 or so minutes for my Bite-sized Book Chats series? If you don‘t know what that is, the playlist is here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLU-61cZp1pQdBH5V0Zb9q-2ujl4PY8nhf. Would love to have you on as a guest! 8mo
Hooked_on_books @shawnmooney Sure, I can do that, though I might be a bit nervous to be on camera. Thanks for asking me! 8mo
shawnmooney @Hooked_on_books Yay! I have proven strategies for helping my guests relax! 😀 Drop me an email anytime at shawnmooneyinjapan@gmail.com and we can set it up! 8mo

Really glad I read this through the #Literati book club. A sobering work that addresses how we define a good life, and how we process a sudden death. Despite fame, success, and access to resources most don‘t have, nothing can prepare someone for tragedy at the dinner table. I‘m sure I‘ll come back to this one to help me through grief at some point. 4⭐️s

It‘s been a busy weekend so I‘m just now able to join in on the #FabulousFebruary #readathon. Starting this one today for one of the #Literati book clubs. I love the relatable way Didion wrote. Over the past few years, especially the past 2, I‘ve heard and experienced so many of these life-changing moments, making this a particularly relevant read.

Cathythoughts So good 💫 10mo
Andrew65 Good luck 😊👍 10mo

The behemoth has arrived! I‘m super excited to start this one, as it‘s Roxane Gay‘s #Literati pick this month and she typically writes great discussion questions. But I better get cracking, since I‘m behind due to slow shipping!

AmyG Enjoy! 10mo

While this is a good sci-fi story it also has much to say about corporations, directly pointing to one that rhymes with Spamazon, corporate greed and how that has consequences for other people in other countries. How these big company‘s power along with support of the government hurts small communities and other small businesses. Also how it can all damage the environment. 👇

Tera66 I found this book pretty good, I am going to give it 3 stars. I think that it needed to be shorter or longer for me. At this length, 211 pages, I was left wanting more of the story and more time for A.O. 's and DNA‘s relationship to evolve. Or it could have been short and sweet like her last novella Remote Control that I loved. 10mo
