#LitsyAward

The Starless Sea | Erin Morgenstern
post image

So anyone who has known me for a while knows i started the #LitsyAwards because the GoodReads awards PISS ME OFF! This is the perfect reason why!!. This tagged book came out TODAY!! How has anyone had a chance to read it to fully vote!!! This system is rigged. It's amazon playing to their data on sales, not on actual reads. And publishers hyping things!!! UGGGHHHHH

#LitsyAward Nominations start Dec 1.

8little_paws Oh I can't stand them either. They're a popularity contest 1w
LibrarianRyan FYI, I am not knocking The Starless see at all. After all my pre-order should be delivered today.

But how are people really supposed to vote for the best sci-fi book of the year few have even read the book.

Okay, enough B&M-ing from me for now.

Laughterhp I had the same exact thought about this book when I was looking at the nominated books today. 1w

Scochrane26 I‘ll be interested in participating in the Litsy awards. 1w
lele1432 Hahaha yup I saw the list last night and just rolled my eyes at some of the newest releases. There are some great books in the line up but many should be considered for NEXT year! I don't like it being tied to Amazon. It's definitely more of a popularity/marketing hype contest than being based on what's actually been read. 1w
julesG It's definitely a popularity contest. @lele1432 1w
LibrarianRyan @Scochrane26 Starting Dec 1 one you can. I have just found if I draw things out too long, then we don't have as much feed back. So December is for nominations. And then January is for multiple rounds of voting.

Twainy I saw The Toll on their list and was surprised since it came out today. It might have had a pre-release? 1w

With all the new people I thought it was time to bring back this hashtag. #20ThingsAboutMe

All you 6 digit littens out there (and everyone else) I want you to make your own post about yourself, and then tag 10 of your new followers. Anyone can jump in. We are a fun group of people, we are happy you are here, and what you to have as much fun as we do.

Some 6 digit littens.

@MrBook @kaye @TheReadingMermaid @RealLifeReading @BookishMarginalia

Emilymdxn This is really cool I love it! Do you mind me asking what a six digit litten is? 10mo
TheReadingMermaid This is so cool. Thank you so much for sharing! I will make up my own list and probably have it up by tomorrow. 🌺🤗🌺 10mo

Trashcanman You forgot to say that you robbed me from the book game and didn't allow me to play Rambo! 10mo
LibrarianRyan @Emilymdxn certainly. It‘s someone with a litfluence in the 6 digits. For example I think mine is 250,000 +. All it really means is that we are pretty active, or have been around since the beta. 10mo
LibrarianRyan @Trashcanman rematch this weekend during the Read a thon. I‘ll make a graphic, invite everyone, and the. gAME ON! 10mo
Mitch Cool. I‘ll be on it this weekend. Great idea. 10mo
cobwebmoth Thanks!❤ I've been here for almost 2 1/2 years, but I tend to lurk a lot instead of actually posting.😊 10mo
RealLifeReading Thanks for the tag! Loved reading your 20 things! 10mo
Kaye Ryan Should I tag new folks who have posted or the blank ones who haven‘t posted anything ? 10mo
LibrarianRyan @kaye ohhhhh. I didn‘t even bother to look. I would say either. Maybe some of the non posters are awaiting their chance? Maybe a bit of both. I‘m good either way. 10mo
Kaye Okey doke. I‘m on it. 10mo
Trashcanman @LibrarianRyan Game on! Leave your hurt feelings at home because I'm gonna win! 10mo
Spencer_Labbe Sounds like fun! 10mo
LeahBergen Such a great list!! 👏🏻👏🏻 10mo
TrishB Sounds fun! Will have a think, 10mo
Lynnsoprano Great idea! And even as an almost six-digit Litten, I just learned a lot about you. 10mo
eraderneely Some of your items are crazy! I know 2 other female Ryans and I‘ve never heard them have anything other than a funny misunderstanding. 10mo
LibrarianRyan @eraderneely with all the crazy names now,I have fewer problems. But when I was in school, ohhh boy. 10mo
Crazeedi Can't wait to be part of the 6 digit litten club🙃 10mo
teebe 😂 ok but same with the name thing. I have to add “Miss” to everything or great amounts of confusion occur. I started having trouble getting Ubers or Lyfts because all the drivers would look for a guy, I finally had to add my photo to my profile and even now I gotta go through the “... you‘re Toni? I thought that was a guy‘s name..” conversations. (edited) 10mo
DarcysMom Great idea! I will have to think up some fun stuff. 🤩 10mo
Crazeedi @LibrarianRyan you are so very interesting! I love all your answers, I love and am jealous that you've been a librarian, because that was my life long dream that I never realized. Thank you so much for sharing, this idea is terrific! 10mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Thanks for the tag, @LibrarianRyan ! I will work in this ... 10mo
LauraBeth I truly understand it when people say they like cats and kids - they just don‘t want cats and kids. I totally get that! 10mo
LibrarianRyan @teebe oh yeah. Love those. 10mo
LibrarianRyan @Crazeedi your welcome. And you‘ll get there. For true posters and active people it takes a while. People who are just in for the numbers can rack up the first 80k quickly by following and being followed. But after that. That counter doesn‘t not move fast at all I‘m. It in for the numbers. Never really look, but you will see people post when they hit a milestone. 10mo
JoScho I will do this soon! Thanks for the tag. I didn‘t know you were childless by choice. It is nice to meet other people that feel the same way as you do since I always feel like I am in the minority. Also my name is Jody which is the boy‘s spelling and the name thing happens to me too. So annoying. 10mo
Cinfhen I remember when u first posted this list!! Nice to see you break it out again!!! I‘ll need to think about my 20 10mo
Crazeedi @LibrarianRyan I actually did join Litsy when it first started, but shame on me I kinda just didn't use it till maybe 6 months ago or so. And now I'm like what is wrong with me? All this time I could have been connecting with like minded littens . So I'm so glad I'm here now...for the long haul. I just enjoy others thought and ideas and books!!!! Thanks so much for sharing yourself 10mo
ReadingRover @LibrarianRyan I‘ll definitely post mine later today. Also I need more info on that fbi file whether it be on here or through email. 10mo
ValPenny Gosh! I need to think about this! 10mo
ReadingDownUnder @LibrarianRyan How do you guys do these Pic Collages? Sometimes I feel really old on here. 👵🏼 10mo
LibrarianRyan @ReadingDownUnder I have 2 apps I use. Canva is what I did this in. I like the desk top version better than the app but the app isn‘t bad. The #litsyaward posts are done in an app called pic collage. It‘s really more for layering pictures but people to a pretty good job adding words in that too (not me). 10mo
GatheringBooks awesome! i love this! definitely joining. 🧚🏼‍♀️📚💕 who knew being given a traditionally-masculine name could make your life infinitely interesting. 10mo
hermyknee Do we just write 20 things about us or are there questions to answer? 10mo
LibrarianRyan @hermyknee you make it up. Anything you want to tell about yourself. 10mo
HOTPock3tt @JoScho I didn‘t know you were childless by choice either!! I am the same. And it‘s true, it‘s very rare. I feel like some people treat us as if we‘re some kind of cold, unfeeling monsters 🤨 I love kids, but I have NEVER wanted my own. Period. I‘ve always known this. 10mo
JoScho @HOTPock3tt yes! Exactly. I am great with kids but just don‘t want any of my own. And yes people expect us to want kids of our own. My favorite is oh you will change your mind 🙄 10mo
LibrarianRyan @JoScho @HOTPock3tt When I was single I would always be told I‘d change my mind. Every time I said nope. And as I got older and based on where I live the odd were that my future guy would already have kids so it didn‘t matter. Then I got with josh and no one says a word. They probably don‘t want us to procreate. 10mo
HOTPock3tt @JoScho @LibrarianRyan I get that one all the time too: you‘ll change your mind. I‘m like sorry: Actually I WONT. Not everybody wants the same type of life! I hear “you better give that man some kids!” Well my husband doesn‘t want kids either so why would I give him something he doesn‘t want? 🙄 and I also hear” but you guys would have such cute kids!” So we should have kids despite not wanting them because they would be cute? Thats ridiculous 😒 10mo
JoScho @HOTPock3tt exactly and always with the “you would make a great mom” no shit but still not having them. Honestly, I think it is rude as hell when people even ask because they don‘t know the reason isn‘t a medical issue. I have started being vague and saying “not sure it‘s in the card for us”. That seems to shut them up quick! It is nobody‘s business. 10mo
HOTPock3tt @JoScho Lol I bet that WOULD shut them up! They don‘t want to have to comfort a person if it happens to be a medical reason. I need to use that one!! ✌️😝 10mo
TheBookHippie Great fun!!!! Thx!!! 10mo
TheBookHippie @JoScho people tell me I should have more kids or why didn't you...I tell them the truth I have hundreds they all reside right here in my heart. If they press I do the truth 10 pregnancies two live kiddos almost 18 years apart I had my son instead of menopause they ripped out my uterus to save my life. Conversation ender 🤷🏽‍♀️😳🙌🏻 sometimes people are idiots 🤦🏽‍♀️ 10mo
JoScho @TheBookHippie yeah they are. I teach 900 kids a week and I love them but I just don‘t feel need to have my own. Seriously people do need to worry about themselves but I am sure telling them the truth does end the conversation. 10mo
TheBookHippie @JoScho Exactly !!! 10mo
jpmcwisemorgan I don‘t how I missed this! I‘ll have to see what I can come up with. Also, childless by choice!!! 10mo
LibrarianRyan @jpmcwisemorgan ⭐️🤓👍 10mo

This category has flipped flop each round so I was on pins and needles to see the results. And the #LitsyAward for #nonfiction goes to Roxanne Gay and her memoir Hunger.

Repost from @LibrarianRyan :

How excited am I to announce the #litsyaward for #romance. LOTS. To me traditional romance novels are mass market paperbacks they sell at the grocery store next to the register, or the harlequin like subscription books my grams read. To me, none of the top 3 books in this category scream #traditional romance, but more #realromance. Please correct me if I am wrong.

👇🏻

LitsyHappenings Post continued: But for now, I give you Litsy favorite romance of 2017: An Extraordinary Union 2y
