Pickpick

It‘s the 191st day of 2019. And I‘ve read 164 books so far. This is outta control! Also I‘m 50-odd reviews behind. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ I may try and catch up on a few faves like this one though. SO GOOD. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #howjessreadsin2019

marleed Wow. You‘ve been busy! 2w

Reading this book on Juneteenth feels very appropriate. I could quote from it all day, but here is one I made a bookmark of in my audiobook. “My race is unremarkable. I belong, when I turn on the tv, read bestselling novels, and watch blockbuster movies. I belong, when I walk past the magazines racks at the grocery store or drive past billboards. I belong...” #howjessreadsin2019 #juneteenth #whitefragility

Ashley_Nicoletto Oh man. This quote makes me want to read it more. 1mo
Samplergal I started it yesterday. So. Good. 1mo

After the Flood | Kassandra Montag
post image
Pickpick

Day 18 of #30junebooks - #uglycover. Most ARCs have such boring, ugly covers, which don‘t reflect the story within at all!

I got this one from Shelf Awareness; super interesting literary take on a world destroyed by floods. Humanity clings to a few tiny islands (the remnants of former mountain chains), or lives aboard ships.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #howjessreadsin2019 (Um, I haven‘t shared reviews for the last 40-odd books I‘ve read. Should I play catch-up?)

Soubhiville This is my next read, but mine has a cover. Can‘t wait to jump into it, but I have to finish my bookclub pick first. 1mo
emtobiasz I‘m in a similar situation re: a backlog on book reviews 😬 Every time I think about making a post I just end up reading instead! 1mo

I love Susanna Kearsley! I read most of them 4-5 years ago, and now I‘ve been relistening to them. 🙂 #howjessreadsin2019

JamieArc I think she‘s one of the best writers when it comes to settings! 2mo
bookandbedandtea I'm another huge Kearsley fan! 2mo
toofondofbooks She's an automatic buy for me. Love her 2mo
LeahBergen I haven‘t read this one! 2mo

This wasn‘t amazingly groundbreaking, I‘ve sadly read all too many news stories like this. But, it was a nice & concise way to share the struggles many Muslims are facing in America today. #howjessreadsin2019

She is so gifted at setting a scene, isn‘t she? #howjessreadsin2019

Sweettartlaura It‘s as much about how she changes when she inhabits different characters to judge a place incognito as it is about food. 2mo
howjessreads @Sweettartlaura - yes I love that one! I‘ve read all of them in print. I think I might just do some re-reading on audio! 🙂 2mo
