This was a used book in pretty rough shape and it was already missing the cover but then I had it in my backpack during a crazy storm today and here we are 😬. I still have over 600 pages left, just need it to stay together til then! #fingerscrossed

Everything Changes | Jonathan Tropper

Just a little reading while I wait for the USATF Regional Championships to start. The Kid does long jump in about 30 minutes!!! I am, of course, on tenterhooks. Tropper‘s humor should calm me down...I hope. #FingersCrossed #TrackMommy #KeepABookHandy

FashionableObserver Update: HE WON!!!! We are heading to nationals in at least one event. Best of all: he said “I‘m exhausted. Let‘s get food and go to the hotel to read for a while”. #RaisingHimRight #SnacksAndStacks 5mo

I‘m gonna be totally honest about this first chapter. If I‘d made my decision whether to purchase this book based on the first two pages, I wouldn‘t have bought it. There are so many issues with those pages, and yet EVERYTHING after that is a different story. The way this chapter builds up to slap you in the face is brilliant. I‘m just hoping the rest of the book reflects everything after the first two pages and not the first two. #FingersCrossed

BillBlume For those wondering, my issues with the first two pages are Joost pining over Anya (that‘s not how teen boys think, not even close and she demonstrates his interest so much better during the stop at the Grisha workshop) and Joost looking at himself in the mirror (Seriously? He‘s already thinking about his appearance, so the glance in the mirror is redundant and amateurish (readers roasted 50 Shades for this same writer sin)). #SMH (edited) 6mo

Was so lucky to have won this book pack including the signed book with T-shirt and pin few weeks ago and the package just arrived (all the way from UK) Everything is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you to #GoldenhareBooks & #FaberBooks so much! Normally the so called award winner books are not my cup of tea, tho occasionally I'll find a good one that I love ...
Hope it's as good as it's hype! #fingerscrossed 🤞

Contagion | Erin Bowman
post image
Pickpick

I‘m WAAAAAY behind on my posts about my reading. Oops! I polished off Erin Bowman‘s Contagion and loved it. As a person who loved the “Aliens” film (the first two more than the rest), this book hits the spot. I‘ll confess that there‘s a twist with the disease that I saw coming (won‘t spoil it here), but I was okay with that. The cliffhanger ending is frustrating but it opens the door for what has the potential to be a big sequel. #FingersCrossed

Sending my #JaneAustenSwap package off today. A bit early to be sending it, but I feel like I'll be cutting it close if I send it once I'm back from my holiday

neet_reads I forgot to put my Litsy handle on the outside of the box (I think I forgot a lot of things with this swap!), but I hope you've received it now @erzascarletbookgasm #fingerscrossed (edited) 2y

Lincoln in the Bardo | George Saunders

Trying something different out. I love history and I am a Lincoln enthusiast so I thought I'd give this one a try. I'm always looking for a good book to listen to at work and this one looks like it has a great cast! #fingerscrossed 🤞

Life this weekend was conspiring against my reading. Little Man was sick with a fever/cold (still is), and the baby was a teething monster. Somehow, I've made it to the halfway mark of this book though! All I want to do is read it because it's getting so good. Hopefully I can get some more read today. #Fingerscrossed

megt Hope the little ones are feeling better soon! 2y
cobwebmoth Hope everyone is feeling better soon! 2y
readordierachel Aww, hope they feel better soon! 2y
sherryvdh @megt @cobwebmoth @ReadOrDieRachel Thanks! They are slowly on the mend. 2y
