New Year Who Dis? | Bitchy Fits
post image

I am ridiculously excited for this list of 16 books from @vivastory for #NewYearWhoDis!

I highlighted the covers of the ones that initially caught my fancy, but this is an epic match @monalyisha thank you!

7 was on my list, and I‘ve read and enjoyed 4, 8, 11, 12, 13. I‘m rereading The Martian Chronicles because I first read it nearly 30 years ago! #FeelingOld 😂

I‘m interested in more than these five, but I wanted highlight Scott‘s great list!

DGRachel Ooh, Firestarter is one of my favorite King novels. Say Nothing was good, too! 1w
merelybookish Scott has such eclectic good taste! He was sure to provide a good list 1w
monalyisha I love Ray Bradbury so, so much. 💖 And the Tove J. caught my eye, too! It was on a few different #NYWD lists & I added it to my personal TBR. Have fun! 1w

monalyisha Also, George Saunders is my husband‘s favorite author. He‘s normally not a big reader but he greedily devours his short story collections! 1w
Megabooks @DGRachel I wrestled with whether to put that in the graphic. Same with the Baldwin, Didion, and The Stone Angel. TBH, there are only one or two that I‘m not interested in. Just an amazing list! I just wanted his list to be easily readable to those who are interested. I love seeing other pairs lists. 1w
Megabooks @merelybookish truth! 🙌🏻 I hope he likes my list half as much as I like his! 1w
Megabooks @monalyisha I really enjoyed the Saunders. I read A LOT of sci fi when I was younger, and I think it‘s something whose time has come to renter my TBR more often. I wanted to read the Jasson after the #NYRBBookClub reviews came in. Sounds really fantastic! 1w
squirrelbrain What a great list! ❤️ 1w
Megabooks @squirrelbrain right?!? So pleased. 1w
BarbaraBB Numbers 2,5, 14 and 15 are all fantastic !! 1w
Megabooks Passing is another one that has been on my “maybe someday list,” but I think I should move it to my definite TBR if you both liked it! 👍🏻 @BarbaraBB (edited) 1w
Cinfhen This is a great list!!! I‘m gonna read Passing for #Booked2022 #SmallScreenAdaptation 1w
Megabooks @Cinfhen good prompt use! I hadn‘t thought of that. 👍🏻 I‘m so bad at knowing what‘s on tv. (edited) 1w
Cinfhen I only know because I saw a Netflix sticker on a book jacket 😘 1w
Prairiegirl_reading 3 and 14 are two of my all time favourites! What a great list! Great pairing I think. 1w
vivastory @DGRachel I think it's one of his more underrated books. I'll be interested to see what the remake will be like. 1w
vivastory @monalyisha This is def one of my fave Bradbury books & I love that one of the sections is set in Independence, MO. True Deceiver kicked off my love for Tove 1w
vivastory @Cinfhen I'll be interested to see what you think of Passing 1w
Chelsea.Poole “Ridiculously excited” —> same here! 👋 that‘s a great list, have fun! 1w
Megabooks @Prairiegirl_reading for sure a great pairing! 1w
Megabooks @Chelsea.Poole fantastic!! It is!! 1w
Megabooks @vivastory like you, I‘m going to wait on purchasing until my gift cards come at Christmas 😃, but I‘ll probably read Say Nothing whenever my library hold comes in. My library does have several others, too, which is great. I‘ll definitely be reading some trickled throughout the year in addition to a few in January! 1w
SilversReviews I have only read EVERY LAST FEAR. ENJOY them all. 1w
Megabooks @SilversReviews thank you! I‘m excited! 1w

Lastly, #Fall #Booked2021 Another list with some hard prompts!
#19-Dark Academia: The Secret History
#20-a coming out story: Fun Home
#21-HopePunk: We Set the Dark on Fire
#22-mythology retelling: The Witch‘s Heart
#23-adapted for small screen: Lost Girls
#24-MC/Author with AIDS/about the AIDS epidemic: Nobody Ever Said AIDS

Cinfhen Ohhh, good to know about #SmallScreenAdaptation / I own that book 2w
Cinfhen I really like all your choices!! Do any crossover with #ReadingAfrica22 2w
DGRachel @Cinfhen Thankfully, yes! Five Nights Before the Summit works for Zambia (and 3 different Booked2022 prompts!) and Nobody Ever Said AIDS can be used for Botswana, Malawi, or Lesotho. Oh, and the only reason I knew about Lost Girls is that I was looking at all my nonfiction books trying to decide if an author was a journalist or just worked for a magazine or newspaper as something else and saw the Netflix sticker on the cover. 🤣 2w

Cinfhen Hahaha that sticker saves the day!!! I have the audio 😉ohhh , I‘m gonna check out your book for the AIDS prompt xx thanks 2w
DGRachel @Cinfhen Just a heads up - I ordered a used copy of Nobody from AbeBooks today because it‘s out of print, my library doesn‘t have it, and it‘s not available on Kindle. 2w
Cinfhen I‘ll keep that in mind…thanks 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage Great picks!! 2w
