Finishing up this book about two black students at an elite private school. This debut YA novel is tackling many social issues, including racism, homophobia, and generational trauma.
I can‘t wait to discuss it tomorrow for #LitsyBookClub

Daisey I‘m also looking forward to hearing everyone‘s thoughts on this one. 15h
tpixie @Daisey yes! Talk to you tomorrow!! 14h

Mehso-so

This book had an interesting premise and characters, but there were a few things that kept it from being a pick for me. It was a little too similar to Gossip Girl (although part of that might have been the narrator of the audio), got long in some places, and the ending was too abrupt without answering some of my questions.

January 2024 #BookSpinBingo

This was a good reading month with 14 completed books (including 7 #1001books), planned progress on 2 long reads, and 3 bingos! I think Cloud Atlas and Mrs. ‘Arris Goes to Paris were probably my favorites. Since I‘m not doing weekly book reports this year, I also noted my in progress reads at the bottom.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! Fantastic month!!! 3w
Vansa I could not love FLowers for Mrs.'Arris more. I actually thought the movie did it quite a disservice with a ridiculous romance subplot with the Marquis, though Lesley Manville is glorious as always 3w
Daisey @Vansa The book was a delight, but I agree there were a few disappointing things about the movie. 3w

Pickpick

This is a fascinating book. The first half was somewhat frustrating, the first story especially when it broke off in the middle of a sentence. Yet, I liked the way each story played a part in the next, and I truly enjoyed reading the second halves of the stories.

Daisey @BarbaraJean I understand! This one has been on my TBR shelf for a while and it took reading it with Litsy BookClub for me to get started. It‘s worth it! 1mo
tpixie @BarbaraJean I agree with @Daisey You do have to have faith & push through the first 2 stories, but it got more fun as we read on! 1mo

Another great day to stay inside and read. It‘s only 5* out!! 🩵🥶🩵
Ready to start the 2nd 1/2 of the 5th book for #Litsybookclub The stories have become more intriguing as I read on.

Daisey I didn‘t read much after my post yesterday, but I plan to read more this evening. It‘s just about as cold here and the perfect weather to stay snug and cozy reading. 1mo
tpixie @Daisey enjoy your day! I‘m going to start the end of Robert‘s story now 1mo

Snuggled up with the pets on this cold morning! I‘ve made it past the center of this novel and through the second halves of Somni‘s and Timothy‘s stories. Luisa‘s is the one I‘ve been most curious to continue.

We had about 8 inches of snow today. Work was delayed until 10:00, now noon. My partner and I just decided to cancel all day. I‘m gonna curl up in my reading chair with my dog and try to tackle this book!

Starting Book 4. I want to jump ahead and finish Luisa Rey‘s story, but I‘ll read the book as the author intended. #LitsyBookClub

Daisey Luisa Rey‘s did have quite the ending to the first part. I finished Timothy‘s last night as well. I‘m definitely more interested now that I‘m further in. 2mo
tpixie @Daisey yes, I think book one was so slow. It was a hard start. I‘m hoping to get through before today, but the grandkids are here and I have laundry to do so it may be tricky. It‘s amazing how long 30 pages can take to read. 😂 2mo

I‘ve made it to the third section of this novel, and I am intrigued by these stories so far. I‘m enjoying lots of interesting vocabulary; being able to just click in my kindle version to see meanings makes it so much simpler to look things up as I read.

Lesliereadsalot I loved this book! 2mo
tpixie I love the dictionary and Wikipedia of my kindle! 2mo
tpixie Is your kindle responsiveness fast? My paperwhite is so slow- sometimes I switch to my phone app to search 2mo
Daisey @tpixie It‘s actually an old iPad that I mainly use for my class library. I only used it for the photo and a couple pages before going back to my phone without actually looking anything up. 2mo
tpixie @Daisey lol perfect!! 2mo
