#LitsyAtoZ

Last night I did a thing that felt a little crazy- I gathered all my TBR books that I need to read to finish my 2019 reading challenges. There are a few more in my kindle or on my audiobook list. It feels like a lot, but really this is only a couple months reading for me (if I don‘t get distracted!)

Tagged book up next!
(Bookclub books and ARC pictured too)

quirkyreader Try and tackle all of the chunksters first. Then it won‘t seem as daunting. 16m

Since I bailed on my last ebook, this is up next! #letterj for #litsyatoz and I believe it will be something uplifting for #nonfiction2019

Good story about finding your strength and friendships. Reminded me a little of when I worked in an ice cream stand in high school, at least in setting. The biggest disappointment was probably the romance angle... way too rushed and underdeveloped. But read it for female empowerment! #LitsyAtoZ:V @BookishMarginalia

I found another x book for #litsyatoz if anyone needs one; it‘s helpfully an ebook. But it has a pretty low score here on Litsy so I‘ll stick with the two I found at a used bookstore last week (tagged below). #letterx

Confusing at times, but never dull. Three FBI newbies get involved in a hunt for a bioterrorist who has created a new strain of anthrax. The bioterrorist's motives aren't really clear until near the end, and the finale is a bit jumbled, but overall it's a solid thriller. 3 💥💥💥 1/2 out of 5.

The plot for this story had potential; a girl is convicted of killing her mom and released from prison 10 years later when evidence was compromised. Girl, now a woman, goes in search of the real killer. I didn‘t like the MC; she is a privileged, selfish, rich snot. The “Paris Hilton” resemblance was annoying. This book really could have been so much better. #MountTBR #LitsyAtoZ #LetterD #ReadingUSA2019 #SouthDakota

squirrelbrain That‘s a shame as I needed one for South Dakota.... 2d
Librarybelle I wouldn‘t be a fan of a character resembling Paris Hilton either... 2d

This book is tough to read; about a life of the deepest poverty. It‘s bleak, but a worthwhile read.

Oh what this book could have been! Instead of giving advice, it spent most pages complaining about extroverts. I skimmed the end and didn't find anything I didn't already know (spoiler: find your charisma by placing yourself in situations where you feel comfortable. Don't let yourself be controlled by extroverts, etc...).
