Angel Catbird, Volume 1 | Margaret Atwood
post image

3 ⭐
It was interesting to see Margret Atwood's storytelling in a different format. I enjoyed her information in the beginning about where the story came from and how it was a long held dream to write. However, while I love Atwood, I did not love this. It was okay, but it felt like it was half told. There was just too many points to the story missing. It seems that it progressed to fast and didn‘t really explain what was going on.

Okay you two, I tried, I really really tired, but my vacation became my nephew's vacation and I just didn't get my last two done.

If I could have found time, I would have read the following

#MrBooktemptation - OrphanMonsterSpy
#littenauthor - Candle IN the Wind.


WanderingBookaneer You did great though! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3y
BookishMarginalia Yep, you did great! 3y
LibrarianRyan @BookishMarginalia @wanderingBookaneer - This was hard but I loved it. I even read a few things I never would have. 3y

My #DecemberTBR goal is to complete my #2019ReadingChallenges: 7 books left for my #Goodreads challenge & 6 of those need to fit #LitsyAtoZ2019 (J, T, U, V, X, Y). I‘m a mood reader so most of the titles I chose at the beginning of 2019 aren‘t appealing to me now. I‘m struggling to pick my next read! My bed-side stack is a mix of potential A to Z picks & a couple TBR books. I have lots of choices for most letters but nothing is jumping out at me.

OriginalCyn620 You can do it! 😊 3y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I didn‘t make mine.. life got too busy and I read other books 🤷🏼‍♀️ the reason I don‘t do these challenges!! Lol you did great though!! 3y

LibrarianRyan yeahhhhh 3y
LibrarianRyan I know the feeling. I am a Q book away from two AtoZ for kids, and an X and a Z for AtoZ graphic novels.

My tough spot is getting #littenLoveBingo done. I have @MrBook temptation, a litten author and I think one other.

And I have a cli-fi left for Booked. I feel your pain. I'm listening to Little Women for Booked and want to gouge my ears out.
MrBook 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 @LibrarianRyan You have a what? One of my TBRtemptation posts?! 😳 I‘ve done lots of those—I need to get back to them, ugh. (edited) 3y
TK-421 @LibrarianRyan You can do it! But try not to gouge your ears out 😂 3y
LibrarianRyan @MrBook I had to go far back to find one in my wheel@house. Now I just have to read it. 😁 3y
Smarkies I am totally struggling to finish an X book for my A to Z. In the end I have picked a short one and am just going to try and plow through it. 😂😂 I am totally a mood reader too. I had a list of books that I thought I would read at the beginning and middle of the year but never got to them. 😆 3y

Fellow Litten @alysonwrites wrote this fun novelette about a councilor‘s center for fairy tale characters! You can read it on Instagram as an #instanovelette, she‘s alysonimagines there.

This fulfilled my #LittenLoveBingo square for #writtenbyalittenauthor. And that polishes off this reading challenge for me! #LLB19

LibrarianRyan Nice! 3y
alysonimagines @Soubhiville I‘m so honored that you chose my story for your #writtenbyalittenauthor challenge! And yay I am happy that you enjoyed reading it!!! Thanks for the mention! (edited) 3y

“You‘re saying I‘m not smart,” she says, “Is that what you‘re incinerating?”
He says, “I‘m not incinerating anything.”
( @MrBook I thought you‘d like this!)

Also, great first line:
“Tonight a man found Dad‘s pants in a tree lit with Christmas lights.”

#GreatFirstLines for #LLB #LittenLoveBingo, and #LitsyAtoZ #LetterK for author

Birdie is about to make the best friend she will ever have in s scraggly giant of a dog she names Bowser. She is spending time with her grandmother in the Louisanna swamp where mystery is just around the corner. You see there is this big fish story about a treasure hidden somewhere, and only the map knows and it's hidden in this stuffed fish. The adventure is seen through the eyes of Bowser, but beware as he is easily distracted by bacon.

Hi Littens!
I‘m thinking of reviving the #AuthorAMonth hashtag, since the original host seem to not be on Litsy for a long time, and it‘s a square for #LittenLoveBingo.
The idea is, each month there is a highlighted author, and if you‘d like to participate you read any of that author‘s books and post about them using the hashtag. Simple, right?

What authors would you like to see included? They need to be prolific. Please comment and share.

Soubhiville How about Stephen King, Kristen Hannah, Jodi Picoult? Someone YA? Who else? 4y
LibrarianRyan @Soubhiville Hannah has been done. How about Duncan (YA) Avi (MG) Erin hunter, Nora Roberts, Sandra brown, James Patterson (he does all ages), Patrick Ness, ami Kaufman, Melissa DeLa Cruz, Victoria Schwann, Jay Kristoff, Rick Riordian, Ridley Pearson (adult and MG) meg Cabot, Beverly clearly , Ray Bradbury, Laurie Halse Anderson, Diana Wynn‘s jones , Carl Hiassen (adult ya and Mg) Sranan McGuire, inert Skye (mg). For starters. 4y
LibrarianRyan David Levittown, holly black, Sarah deaden, Benedict okoafor, Marie lu, Neal Schuster man, Libby bray, issac Asimov, l. Ron Hubbard, rl stein 4y

The Book I am reading right now will officially give me a bingo in the #LittenLoveBingo challenge. But I am going for #blackout. I have already made lists of ideas, and scoured litsy to find titles i own that will fill the slots for #recommendsay, @BookishMargainalia , #LittenAuthor, @Mr.Book, and #BuddyRead. I'm not likeing my choices for #AuthoraMonth, but I shall try. I'm saving the ones from my reading lists for the very last!!

Soubhiville The author a month thing didn‘t last- only 2 months happened. Looks like one of the hosts never posted to Litsy and the other hasn‘t posted in 4 months... I feel like at some point there was a list of author names thrown around for this, but I can‘t find it... maybe we should revive it with some well known and well loved authors to give you more than 2 choices? And for others maybe still participating in #LLB. I may do that tomorrow. 4y
LibrarianRyan @Soubhiville when I dug through Litsy I found Boyle, Hannah, and Zauska. I am the messenger has been on my list for a while so I think I will try it on Audio. But yeah it does a quick death. It was an interesting idea. 4y

LibrarianRyan @WanderingBookaneer I‘m tempted to do his newest book because of the controversy, but I will probably stick with Zausk. 4y
WanderingBookaneer I have his new book, but I‘ve been afraid to read it. 4y
Soubhiville @LibrarianRyan and @WanderingBookaneer Ladder to the Sky is excellent, but it‘ll make you mad 😊. 4y
LibrarianRyan @WanderingBookaneer yeah. I had to do a lot of reading about the controversy and I didn‘t care for his reactions. 4y
WanderingBookaneer @Soubhiville : I read it, but HATED the second part. I still enjoyed the book, thiugh. (edited) 4y
