The Nickel Boys: A Novel | Colson Whitehead
post image

Not a perfect book, but a very good one. Tells a fictionalized account of an institutional "school" for boys, an alternative to prison, where boys were beaten and killed, especially in the black houses. Emotional portrayal, but not one that had me sobbing, which is kind of nice. Read this for the #BNbookclub, which I am hosting at my store tonight

Also, this was my E for Care of Magical Creatures in the #NEWTs #magical readathon

Not my favorite in the series but a solid pick.

Love the Tufa!

Cathythoughts Hi Sheila , I‘ve just seen a post you liked with my name on it , with my Litsy picture ( & Facebook logo ) & name & this really worries me as I‘m not on FB for years now & so could not have posted this on Facebook ? It was also @JoeStalksBeck .... not sure what‘s going on ? No ill will intended at all , just don‘t understand (edited) 3w
Shemac77 What?! I have no idea. It was on FB? I‘m rarely on FB. And haven‘t looked anyone up from Litsy on FB. I‘m really curious as well. It makes no sense 3w

Shemac77 @Cathythoughts Unless you‘ve read these books? The only thing I can think of is that I went back to who tagged the books and liked their reviews. Within litsy though. 3w
Cathythoughts @Shemac77 Sorry for all the confusion ... I really don‘t know what happened.. it‘s worrying , but I‘m just going to let it go ... and again , no ill will intended. Take care friend & chat soon X 3w
Shemac77 No worries! I‘d have concerns too. @Cathythoughts If you‘re more comfortable unfriending me on here; I totally understand. 3w
Cathythoughts @Shemac77 oh no ! I definitely don‘t want to unfriend you. I really like being friends with you on Litsy... it‘s all good ... I probably over- reacted ( it‘s been known to happen) ... I‘m sure whatever glitch it was won‘t happen again...I think your right I must have liked the same book as you & then some wires got crossed.. I hope I havnt upset you. My Litsy app went down last night but it‘s up & running again 👍🏻♥️ 3w
Shemac77 @Cathythoughts I‘m not upset at all! I‘m super creeped out about it. Social media is getting freakier and freakier. Someone said that FB “listens” to conversations then tailors their ads to what you‘ve said or written. I find that bone chilling. 3w

Clwojick There‘s a ton of options for the BFC. There‘s step count, if you have a Fitbit or a phone that simply supports the Fitbit app. General exercise minutes. Healthier meals. Self love exercises. Meditation. Yoga. Flights of stairs. Daily water intake. Etc etc etc. I hope these help, and that you are able to come up with a plan that works for you ♥️🧡💛 2mo

• This book is about the narrator warning a kid about wishing for a unicorn ! Oh no BAD IDEA KID! This book is hilarious and reminds us you get what you wish for.
• UDL: 3.3
• EL: A lot of colorful pictures and short sentences

KPC This looks like a fun book! As adults, we can probably relate to it! Sometimes we wish to have something so bad without thinking about the consequences. Cool pic! 2mo
Kayladvazquez I think this would be a good book for children. It will teach them to be careful what they wish for and that the grass is not always greener on the other side. The illustrations look good. I would love to use this as a read aloud. 2mo

Stardust | Neil Gaiman

One of my favourite Gaiman‘s, the tale of the adventures of a young man from the village of Wall, which borders the magical land of Faerie.

Weaponxgirl Fun fact, some of the movie was filmed in my city. A lot of the village scene is a part of elm hill. 😊 5mo
batsy I have to say they really nailed it with this old school fantasy cover. 5mo

vkois88 I need to read this. I have it somewhere... 5mo
erzascarletbookgasm @vkois88 I hope you‘ll get to read it, haven‘t watched the film, but heard that‘s good too! @Weaponxgirl cool! I didn‘t know that..Norwich right? I thought filming location was the Scottish highlands 😊 5mo
Weaponxgirl @erzascarletbookgasm yup Norwich and just the village bit at the beginning. Me and friends were watching going there‘s the games shop and the bookshop. A friend of mine did a ninja roll under the barrier closing it off from the public at 2am and landed at the feet of a security guard who just looked exasperated 😂 5mo

Hocus Pocus | Kurt Vonnegut

I read a lot of fantasy so almost any of my books could work but I decided to focus on a few with #magical titles by some favourite authors. I‘ve read all of these multiple times except Hocus Pocus which is still tbr. #LiteraryLuck

vkois88 I need to try to broaden my horizons and attempt more fantasy. I'm okay with YA level fantasy (to a degree) 5mo
TK-421 @Christinak the Landover books were the first Terry Brooks I ever read ❤️ 5mo
TK-421 @vkois88 And I‘m the opposite lol I mostly read fantasy & sci-fi so I‘m trying to broaden my horizons by reading classics, chick lit & other genres outside my comfort zone! 5mo
