⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I enjoyed this book and I think it deserves its 2019 accolades. It was a heartwarming story with smart writing and it tackled some tough issues. It was less light-hearted and fluffy than I thought it would be. There was a heavy focus on politics, which was actually a bit boring for me personally. #atx #washingtondc #lgbtq #substanceusedisorder #caseymcquiston #politics #romcom #politicalromcom

Spent all day yesterday on a bookstore crawl doing a photo scavenger hunt for #indiebookstoreday (feel free to check out my Instagram for all the fun)
One of the bookstores had a #blinddatewithabook display - and this one called to me. Will post the book inside the wrapping (as well as the rest of my #bookhaul) later today. In the meantime, any guesses on this mystery book? 😃

After attending the inaugural #litsyatxreaderssociety meetup (so awesome to meet fellow #atx littens! So many good book recommendations!) at the Central Library - I had to pillage the new graphic novel shelves. I may have gone slightly overboard. Maybe. #libraryhaul #sorrynotsorry #ididleavesomeforothers

Eyelit @valeriegeary I can‘t even claim any of these for work or research purposes 😄 - the library is a dangerous place. 3y
valeriegeary This looks like the perfect amount! 👏👏👏 3y
jpmcwisemorgan I don‘t see anything wrong with this stack! 😉 3y

Ended the book festival with Dr. Tinsley talking about her book (that was partially modeled after her UT course) about Beyoncé and black feminism. I don‘t think her book is out yet, but I‘ll be keeping an eye out for it.

It was so cool meeting up with fellow littens and being surrounded by bookish people this weekend (and the weather was fantastically lovely as well) #txbookfest #atx

My_novel_obsession Wish I could have been there for the second day! Maybe next year I can make a weekend of it. 4y

slightlyfoxed I‘m here! Mostly hanging out at the YA tent, but I plan on going to see Sy Montgomery later. 4y
My_novel_obsession Didn‘t know when everybody was going to meet up though 4y
Eyelit @Anovelobsession I think the meetup is around 2 - so some time to attend the short fiction panel methinks (I‘ll probably leave it a bit early to get to the meetup) 4y
My_novel_obsession @Eyelit Perfect! Will see you there! 4y
Eyelit @slightlyfoxed ooh - now that I‘ve read the info on Montgomery I think I‘ll try to make it to that one! 4y

First book in the new house! Whew! We made it to Austin. I‘m sitting on a blanket on the floor waiting for the Mr to get up so we can start unloading the truck. It‘s not even 7 am and I can‘t wait to go to bed tonight 😂😅😴. Also can‘t wait to open my book boxes and pull out my physical copy of this baby! Kindle is nice, paper is nicer!
