Warm Bodies: A Novel | Isaac Marion

#AugustWrapUp
A great month for reading despite going back to work! Fav book is tagged.

My desire to join the #MagicalReadathon2019 (better late than never!) led me to most of the books I read. I successfully earned an Outstanding for the #OWLsReadathon2019! One of the books also doubled for my #ReadLikeRory challenge.

I also finally finished both the Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter series, the latter for #HPBuddyRead.

Quite proud! 🤩

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Great job, and some truly great books! 3mo
laur89 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Thanks!! Are any of your favs on this list?? 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved Narnia when I first read it, and Harry Potter is always a great read and reread. 3mo

Mehso-so

Work demands have turned me into a weekend reader & poster!! I miss opening up Litsy every day!

Book felt slow and even though it did give some great insight into life with people diagnosed with mental illness such as schizophrenia, I was sort of bored through most of the story. Also, I didn‘t understand any of the (few) Patty Hearst references made throughout.

However - this satisfies my DADA OWL!

All of these lovelies came home from a thrift store haul! 😍

Most are for my #ReadLikeRory challenge, and some just caught my attention. The book on top is a Canterbury Classics collection of Mark Twain stories- sprayed gold edges & a leather cover! ❤️

Lcsmcat Lots of goodies there! I‘ve read at least half of those and they‘re all good. 4mo
laur89 @Lcsmcat So glad to hear! I bought these simply because I‘d heard of the titles, and had no idea what the reviews looked like. 4mo

Repost for @laur89 :
Alright people. I‘m taking this on for #ReadLikeRory (my own #GilmoreGirlsReadingChallenge).

This one is a #CHUNKSTER at over 1000 pages. I‘m sort of intimidated, but it‘ll be Mr. Dreiser‘s birthday on the 27th, so I‘m doing this in honor of him. 🎂

I would totally love to #BuddyRead this with anyone who‘s interested! Hefty novels like these are better with friends... so comment & tag @laur89 if this book catches your eye!

Lcsmcat @laur89 When are you planning to read this? I‘m interested, if I can fit it in. 4mo
Aimeesue The Ebook is only 45¢ if that sways anyone. That's only .00041322 cents a page! A true bargain for a masterpiece. ? 4mo
laur89 @Lcsmcat Starting it this month! But it‘ll be totally informal. Read whenever you want, and share your thoughts along the way/see others‘ posts about the story! 4mo

laur89 @Aimeesue 🤣 That sounds like one purchase... that leads to another... and before you know it, you‘ve spent $30! But that is a compelling reason to join in! 4mo
Lcsmcat Sounds good. Count me in! Do you have a hashtag? 4mo
Lcsmcat Just pulled my copy off the shelf and my edition is _only_ 874 pages. 😆 4mo

Hestapleton Hey I‘ve got a copy of this on my shelf for forever! Totally down for a buddy read. 4mo
laur89 @Hestapleton Yay!! It‘s going to be totally informal. Basically, read through the month of August and share on Litsy any thoughts about the characters or moments that make you go 😮🤔😠😭, etc. (like any excerpts/quotes that hit you in the feels). 4mo
Hestapleton @laur89 awesome! :) 4mo
twohectobooks Hey, I just happen to have already started this on July 16 and will join you if that‘s ok! I‘m a little over halfway through.. my copy is 814 pages long. 4mo
laur89 @twohectobooks Of course it‘s ok!! More readers always welcome 😃 I‘ve just gotten to book 2. Major thought so far: Hortense and that STUPID fur coat ... 🙄😒 I want to get to the juicy part already! 4mo

Step 1 of #ReadLikeRory...

Subscribe to as many #SerialReader books as I can find (so far, I‘m at about 20). 😂

Starting with the tagged, since it‘s the shortest!

All play and no work makes me do things like taking on the Rory Gilmore reading list challenge. 🙂

The list of 339 books referenced in the show was a bit daunting, so I‘m using the official WB reading list of 119 books! Thankfully, I‘ve already read a few... but I have A LOT to go. 😬 Find the list at:
listchallenges.com/rorys-book-club-original-wb-list

If anyone cares to join in my lunacy, I‘ll be tracking my progress using #ReadLikeRory 📚🤓

Bklover That is so ambitious! Good for you- good luck👍👍👍👍 5mo
laur89 @Bklover Thanks- I definitely need it! 🤪🤣 5mo
Laughterhp Oo a list of 119 books sounds a lot more doable than the 300! 5mo

laur89 @Laughterhp Yep!! I‘m going for it 💪🏼 Maybe I can try to join or start a #buddyread for some of the books! 5mo
thereadingunicorn How you find the list? 5mo
