Nineteen Minutes | Jodi Picoult
post image

Slow and tense until the last hundred pages, then the pace picks up with courtroom drama. This is a good story that made me wonder what it would be like to be the parent of a child that committed a horrific crime... I give a solid 3/5⭐️s. Thanks to @BurghBookAddict for sending this my way #mfbs

megnews This is the only Picoult book I ever got into. I like how you put the date in the corner of your pictures. I think I‘m going to start doing that. 11mo
Wife @megnews I‘ve only read one or two of her books before this. I started putting the dates on my posts just so I could stay organized and track my reading. I wish I had started it from the time I joined Litsy. 11mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Which others have you read? I love her books!! 11mo

Wife I‘ve only read My Sister‘s Keeper which I liked and Leaving Time which I didn‘t care for. So not too familiar with her writing. @BurghBookAddict just sent me Small Great Things and it sounds good. 🌹Have you read all of her books? Which is your favorite? 11mo
Wife @AmberWB Hi Amber. I saw that you stacked this book to read. I would be happy to send my copy to you. I like to pass books that I won‘t read again on to my Litsy friends. I have your address in my #jb stuff. Let me know if you‘re interested 🌹 11mo
AmberWB @Wife That would be great! That is so sweet of you to think of me! Thank you so much! 11mo
Wife @amberwb you‘re welcome 🌹 11mo

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Wife I really love most all of hers! My least favorite was her most recent 11mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Have you read any of Kristy Woodson Harvey‘s books? I love hers for a light read!! 11mo
Wife @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I don‘t think I‘ve ever heard of this author. Does she have a similar style to Picoult? 11mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Wife no, hers a light, summery reads! I really like hers when I need a break from heavy stuff! 11mo
Wife @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I may have to look into her books. I often find myself in a run of heavy reads and need a break. 11mo

I finally got to open my #myfavoritebookexchange package today. It was awesome! Thank you so much Rachel @iread2much everything was so pretty wrapped too. I‘m looking forward to read your recommendations, they sound so interesting. And the other 2 are books I really really wanted for a long time. Also you just have to tell me the name of the panda cookies. They are too cute to eat and insanely good! I ate the first package too fast ☺️ #mfbs

iread2much I‘m so glad you liked everything! The bears are from Lotte, and come in lots of different flavors. You can get Panda Bears and Kola Bears. 1y

Yay! Just opened my #myfavoritebookswap package and I'm so excited! Thank you @JamieLou - I love the cat tote/socks/bookmarks and the books look so fun. I'm new to cozy mysteries so I can't wait to give it a try - have wanted to for a while. I have heard great things about Leah on the Offbeat (the cover is so pretty). I haven't heard of your favorite book before but The She-Hulk Diaries sound like a blast and I can't wait to try it! Thank you!😍💙

tammysue Nice! 😍 1y

And here is the unveiling! What a great selection; thank you so much! And the little extras are so thoughtful. I feel like I should have sent you more. But I would love to do a buddy read...maybe in October? 🤔 Let me ponder for a week or so and get back with you on that. Thank you again! I love it all!
And thanks for hosting @JoeStalksBeck !

readinginthedark @BookishTrish I'm excited about that one! I haven't read any of the Hogarth Shakespeare series yet. Probably pick this one up after we read the original for #ShakespeareReadalong 1y
Q84 I'm thrilled you like it! And the package you sent me was great! No need to worry about that. I do hope that you enjoy reading each of these. And just let me know if you decide you'd like to and October would be great! 1y
Q84 I stole the gift tag idea from another swap I did. I decided to use them for bookmarks for the books they were on. Just a thought. 1y
readinginthedark @Q84 That's a great idea! 1y
