Jumping straight back into this thriller after finishing Gideon the Ninth, trying to keep my reading momentum going. I‘m on Chapter 49 so only a few more left before adding Bk3 to my monthly stats. Now I just have 8 more #librarybooks to read before the 28th! Hope they still give extensions🤞 #librarylove🏛 #ridingthereadingtrain🚂📚📚

Cathythoughts Look forward to your review 👍🏻 1d

Last month when I did the Book Snob Book Tag on BookTube, I started thinking about other things that I am definitely very particular about when it comes to books. As it turns out, I am a bigger book snob than I initially realized! Check out my latest video video and let me know if any of these things bother you, too! https://youtu.be/wMp_dYyTtTQ #booktube #youtube #bookvlog #booksnob #dustjackets #moviecovets #massmarketpaperbacks #librarybooks

EadieB @Butterflyamore Sorry to see that Elliot passed away! He was so cute! In regards to DustJackets, I love them too. I bought a book that didn't have a jacket and made my own by taking a picture of the cover from the Amazon app and printed it out on paper and taped the papers together. I'm not at home or I would show you the cover that I made. I take the jacket off when I read the book but I would never throw it away. I put it back on after reading. 3d
EadieB @Butterflyamore I also like to remove the plastic covers from library books I own. I hate when they put the barcode on the back of the cover and cover up some of the wording from other's reviews or the description of the book. I hate to get a book where people have bent the edges of pages to mark their spot. I also am a book repairer. I'm forever putting tapes on the backside of older books whose jacket is ripping. Tape bindings that are apart too (edited) 3d

EadieB @Butterflyamore I like reading hardcover but sometimes find the trade of mass market a lot easier to travel with. I don't like descriptive sex or bad language in books. I love beautiful poetic writing too where I will read every word. But other styles don't bother me either. Never heard of putting bar codes on the front. Sales stickers on the front are annoying too. I always peel them off. I don't keep books after I read them so I'm not too fussy. 3d
Butterflyamore @EadieB Thank you. It‘s been very difficult emotionally. We did not expect this to happen. Creating a cover for one without a dust jacket is a really good idea! I might have to do that for the one I mentioned. 3d
Butterflyamore @EadieB Yes, I don‘t like those sale stickers either. I‘m usually okay with profanity, as long as it isn‘t ridiculously out of control, but I‘m not a fan of descriptive sex scenes either. 3d
EadieB @Butterflyamore Making the cover was a lot of fun. I'll have to find the book or I may have sent it on to one of my book swapping sites and I probably explained the cover to the person I sent it too. But I may still have it. 3d
EadieB @Butterflyamore The profanity that I dislike is when they use the F word throughout constantly when it is not necessary. That really bugs me. I think I mentioned the book YOU by Carolyn Kepnes. Found that really bad for descriptive sex and language. 3d
Butterflyamore @EadieB Yeah, I thought I had wanted to read that but not now, based on what you‘ve shared. I do feel using the F word repeatedly really takes away from the value of the story. The sex stuff - I don‘t know - it‘s just so awkward to read for me. I really am not interested in the sex lives of other people. 3d

In the Valley of the Sun | Andy Davidson

Pickpick

finished my first book for my upcoming book club meeting ☀️ I was a bit hesitant on this based on the premise but it's a solid horror read. Davidson excels at developing an unsettling atmosphere in the isolated areas of Texas and his take on vampires is delightfully creepy and monstrous. I did feel the attempts at procedural crime fiction are interesting but could be in a different, separate book.

Life's been rough recently, so I've been doing a LOT of audiobook listening. This Lady Traveler's book is just the fluffy sort of distracting romance I need right now.

Happy Monday Litsy!

I've loved cozy mysteries since before I knew exactly what the genre was. They remain some of my most favorite long-running series. These are the first books my #Top6 cozy mystery series. As you might can tell, I have a special soft spot for book and food themed settings. The Magical Bakery & Tea Shop mysteries are particularly good! Mmmmh, tea & scones. 😻

Happy Monday Litsy! Hope everyone had a great weekend. 😁

I've got a new #Top6List this morning, non-violent true crime! One of my biggest surprises when I came to work at the library was the popularity of the true crime genre. These are true crime books for people like me who can't stand all the murder and gore! They follow crimes that are often twisty, dark, and devious, but rarely get anyone killed. Enjoy!

Megabooks I‘ve read 4/6 and liked 3/4. I didn‘t like Stranger in the Woods. I‘ve added Gardner to my TBR! Thanks! 1mo
