Louis Zamperini's life story is one of the most #amazing that I have read about. How he survived WWII is incredible. I couldn't put this one down. Recommended to me by my mom and step-dad. #recommendedby #septembowie #autumnreads

I finally finished it! I started it in audio, and finished it in this physical book. The story is good, but I got tired of all of the scenery descriptions. I loved Bigwig. I read this because it was #recommendedby @TK421 #LitsyReadingChallenge #LRC22

Soubhiville One of my favorite books! 2y
TK421 @cobwebmoth your life was not complete without those 2 or 3 page highly detailed scenery descriptions and you know it!🐰 2y
EvieBee Everyone tells me that this is a must read. I like that you did audio also. I may have to do that! 2y

This sweet and funny story is my current read, and my choice for the #LitsyReadingChallenge, #RecommendedBy the beautiful-inside-and-out, queen of moxie & bearer of wisdom, @LauraBeth ! This book is exactly what I need at the moment and I am loving it.

LauraBeth You're the sweetest - I have felt your prayers! 💕And sometimes you just need some Fannie Flagg ❤️ 2y
SaraFair I found Fannie Flag when I was doing a Goodreads challenge and needed a Christmas title. Another good one 2y

I enjoy reading this one for it's sarcastic humour and some very good dialogues. I loved both characters, Rosie and Don.

Midnight Riot | Ben Aaronovitch
post image

Taking a break from my His Dark Materials re-read (only The Amber Spyglass to go!) in order to fulfill the "Recommended by a librarian" square on my summer bingo card. "Midnight Riot" has been suggested to me by both SPL librarians & school librarians from their own book piles, so I'm pretty excited to jump in. Wish me luck! #SeattleArtsAndLectures #SeattlePublicLibrary #SummerBookBingo #amreading #recommendedby

aeeklund Do you have your Post-Its at the ready?? 3y

Immediately moving on to my next book. This one is my #recommendedby for #LRC. I had to pour a glass of wine with it, after all I am a dedicated reader.

Zelma That does seem to be a necessary accouterment with this book! 🍷🍷🍷 3y
Kris10 @Zelma I like to think I'm a method reader 😂 3y

Stop That Girl: Fiction | Elizabeth Mckenzie
post image

A collection of 9 vignettes make up Stop That Girl: A Life in Stories. I loved Ann from the very beginning, and her dysfunctional family. Each vignette is a story from Ann's life. It's written chronologically, starting when she's around 8 years old, with stories of adventures with her crazy grandmother, her time at school and then college, all these stories random but highlighting the adult she will become👇🏻

DeborahSmall I found the end somewhat disappointing as it jumps from her college days to her being married. It could have worked had the book been longer but finished with just 2 chapters/stories of her life after college. Overall I loved the book and found it funny and at times incredibly sad, her relationship with her mother is a complicated one, Ann is often manipulated by her mother but she is also very protective of Ann. As I said complicated 3y
DeborahSmall This is also my Litsy bingo challenge #RC21 #recommendedby... this was recommended by @shawnmooney Thank you 3y
