RamsFan1963
Norse Mythology | Neil Gaiman

Pickpick

Ever read a book that you didn't enjoy as much as you should, but you can't figure out why? That's this book, I didn't love it, but I didnt hate it either. It was close to a so-so, but I found enough enjoyable to make it a low pick. 3 💥💥💥 out of 5

CaitZ I got the same feeling from this book. I think it's because I don't know that much about mythology. 3mo
RamsFan1963 @CaitZ I'm no expert, but I've read my share of mythology, mostly greek/roman and some norse, and I think what was missing was Gaiman's usual writing flare. I still don't know what I was expecting, something more like American Gods I suppose. 3mo

I *loved* (like it was almost life-changing it was so good) the first book years ago and I expect this one to be emotional as well. Excited to make it my #LetterN book for #litsyatoz

BethM Loved the original. 5mo

The Scapegoat: A Novel | Sophia Nikolaidou

The picture is my reading month, though I‘m still catching up on posting the books I read this month lol. The tagged book was my novel based on a true story for #popsugarreadingchallenge and my #LetterN for #LitsyAtoZ in translation. It was good, just a bit slow in places, and I feel like I learned a good bit about Greece.

Wow. I totally get why this is a sci-fi classic, this just blew my mind! It has the same sense of bleakness & future dread as Bladerunner with the blood lust of a Tarantino movie. Why have I waited so long to read it? If you love SciFi & you haven‘t read this yet, what are you waiting for??

vivastory The upside down titles on these spines drive me crazy. I have this same edition & I keep meaning to read it. 6mo
Lizpixie @vivastory me too! I thought it must have been a misprint until my copy of Dune came with the same spine. How do you display them on your shelf? 6mo
Avanders Hey Liz - checking in re #sffs — have you shipped your package yet? I‘ll email if I don‘t hear back 🤗 6mo
CarolynM Hi Liz, just checking in with you. I've missed seeing you around. Hope all is well😘 6mo

I‘ve been giddy with anticipation to read this book, so much so that I‘m afraid to start. But I am counting it as #lettern for #litsyatoz because no one said I can‘t! 😂

I loved this story about love, lighthouses, and time. I was enthralled and had difficulty putting it down. ❤️ #MountTBR #LitsyAtoZ #LetterN #USAReading2019 #SouthCarolina

I‘m finally going to catch up here!! This was my second book of the year; I finished it a few weeks ago, and am just getting around to posting here.
There are certain vehicles in life, paired with a special mind, that leads you to an alternate road of reality. That‘s what Charlie Manx can do, when he takes children to Christmasland. That is, until Vic McQueen changes everything.

Theshadedbuffalo @Trashcanman 👋🏻 it‘s been so long!! 😬😬 8mo
Trashcanman @Theshadedbuffalo I hope all is well. Not sure if you're in the Freeze zone or not. 8mo
Theshadedbuffalo @Trashcanman I‘m not! I‘m in Vegas, and it was actually 68 degrees here the other day. 😆😆 my husband deployed about 2 weeks ago, so we were scrambling to get him ready and so I‘ve been absent in many places. But now it‘s all settling out with a new routine with him gone, so I‘m back! 8mo
Trashcanman @Theshadedbuffalo well I'm glad you're back, wish him a safe deployment and hope to see you on Litsy a ton. 🤗 8mo

Well. To call this a YA fantasy feels a little undeserving - the content (including quite graphic sexual assault) is far from young-adult. But there‘s shades of metaphor here I haven‘t felt in a “teen” book since the Divergent series. This is much along that same vein, but with a more likeable heroine (and a lovely, heart-warming romance to boot). The ending felt rushed...but I‘m excited for the next book. 🌸👑🔥
