Another one off of my “currently reading” Goodreads list from 2016... 🤦🏽‍♀️. I don‘t know where I left off on this one, but since I last read it on 2016 I have to start from the beginning anyway. #YesiReads

BooksMcD I thought this was a fun, quick read so hopefully it moves quickly for you! It can get a bit confusing so good thing you‘re starting from the beginning again! Let us know how it goes 😊 4h
TheBookAddict @BooksMcD I remember that I was enjoying when I first started reading it, but I probably got distracted by a shiny cover at the library or at a bookstore 🤷🏽‍♀️. So far it‘s pretty good. I‘m hooked! 😆 3h

Fangirl: A Novel | Rainbow Rowell

I am giving myself- well, my #catsoflitsy, mug, and this book- a bunch of 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 because THIS is how you take a mental health day. I really love this book. Really. This is my second #RainbowRowell and I enjoyed it just as much as Eleanor & Park. I have Carry On and Wayward Son in the queue. 💗

Scochrane26 I prefer her ya books, but her 2 adult books are pretty good. If you decide to read them eventually. 5h
BlameJennyJane @Scochrane26 I do have both! It‘s good to hear an endorsement for them. The reviews don‘t glow the way they do for her YA. But I‘m sure I pick those up before the 3rd Simon Snow comes out. 😊 4h

Why My Cat Is More Impressive Than Your Baby | Matthew Inman, The The Oatmeal
post image
Mehso-so

I don‘t think my idea of funny meshes well with Inman‘s idea of funny. Parts of this I did laugh out loud - as a cat owner, I could totally relate to some of the pieces. A quick read with some hidden gems. My cats would certainly agree that they are the best, as they joined me while I read this one. #Zeke #Vladimir #SebastianKitty #catsoflitsy

Sace That title is awesome though 😂 17h
Librarybelle @Sace Totally! 😂 17h
Alora Haha I have this book too! This is so cute lol 😍 I put up the poster that came with it on my wall...and I kid you not my cat chewed it all up. How ironic 😂 “How to tell if your cat thinks you aren‘t that big of a deal” ... and chews it up lol! 5h
Librarybelle @Alora That is hilarious! 😂😂😂 4h

I loved this "post-happily ever after" story about Cinderella's stepsisters. It's a feminist story of finding your own happy ending instead of the one society thinks you should have. It's so different from other fairy tale inspired books I've read.

The Testaments | Margaret Atwood

*Sigh* #UnpopularOpinion incoming...
I wish I hadn‘t read this. I hadn‘t expected it to be anywhere near as good as The Handmaid‘s Tale, but I had hoped for better than this. It just felt cheap, like it was written to cash in on fans of the show. Parts felt very YA (which is something I usually do not like and this was no exception), I found the plot twists painfully obvious, the ending underwhelming, even the writing felt ⬇️

shadowspeak17 lackluster. I ended up rolling my eyes and saying, “Seriously?” far too often... 😔 I really wanted to like this, but in the end I found it disappointing and unnecessary.

BarbaraTheBibliophage I agree with your assessment. But, hey, at least it checks off a prompt! 15h
Come-read-with-me @shadowspeak17 Thanks for the honest review. It‘s hard to speak so frankly in a less than positive way about a book that many people are celebrating. Great observations on your part - this book is an acquired taste for many readers. 12h

Cinfhen I applaud your review and had very similar feelings. I‘m glad I read it because I wanted to see if this book really could live up to the hype, which for me, it did not. I also felt this was a total sell out. But good for Margaret Atwood for at least writing her own ending. 11h
shadowspeak17 @BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m glad I‘m not alone in my opinion. 😅 Yes, just five more prompts to go! I think I might actually complete the challenge this year. 😬🤞🏽 3h
shadowspeak17 @Come-read-with-me Thank you! I‘m really glad the people on Litsy tend to be kind when someone goes against the popular opinion on a book, otherwise I doubt I would have posted a review for this. 3h
shadowspeak17 @Cinfhen That‘s part of the reason why I read it too, to see if it would live up to the hype. I honestly didn‘t really expect it to, so my expectations weren‘t actually that high going in. But of course I hoped to be pleasantly surprised. Yes, good for Atwood, and I‘m glad lots of people have enjoyed the ending she gave this story even though I don‘t happen to be one of them. 3h

I love everything Neil, but his short stories are one of the things he does best, in my opinion. My particular favorites were The Price and October in the Chair. Some of these stories were featured in other collections, but I enjoyed them all over again. My very own Black Cat obliged me with a photo for this review. 🖤😻🖤 #Lennox #catsoflitsy
