J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography | Humphrey Carpenter
post image

Thanks to a couple Litsians, I found out about and bought the Tolkien Biography, and thus led to the History of the Hobbit !! 💚 was sad because I *thought* I was close to the end of my Journey Through Middle Earth with it being a couple chapters away from finishing the Silmarillion.... IT IS NOT SO!! #LeaveItToLitsy #ThanksLitsy

Broken Promise: A Thriller | Linwood Barclay
post image

This was a #blameitonlitsy although really it should be #thankslitsy And more specifically thanksyou @Andrew65 totally forgotten how much I used to enjoy Linwood Barclay novels and this is a cracker. Great small town politics, a horrific crime and enough unsavoury folks to have you casting around for the guilty party. Off to pick up part two because what is a holiday for if not binge reading!

Andrew65 Great to hear you enjoyed it. 😊👍 Book 2 and 3 in the trilogy only get better. I strongly recommend not leaving much of a gap between the books as there are ongoing threads and characters across all three books. Enjoy. (edited) 2mo
Andrew65 Enjoy your holiday and I agree, just had two weeks holiday and it turned into a read fest! 2mo
Itchyfeetreader @andrew65 thanks I have making good inroads on book 2. When we travel we mostly tour but this time we are sitting doing nothing in a resort and it‘s giving me excellent reading time here in the shade ! 2mo

Who was it who posted about Serial Reader yesterday?? #blameitonLitsy #thanksLitsy
This is actually on my priority TBR for 2019, so this is a great way to get it in 😊

Caroline2 I love a bit of serial reader! Such a great idea isn‘t it! 👍🏻 5mo

Finally got to read the 1st book in this series, finding it in a Tokyo library. I get the high recommendations by my geek girls: a wizard solving crimes in a Potter-like universe where magic lives somewhat secretly alongside our reality with a regulatory counsel and the promise that all those other magical beings from stories also exist. I'm assuming the characters grow on you throughout the series. Just got book 2! #mommyreads #urbanfantasy

UrsulaMonarch I love that I JUST learned what #urban fantasy is from @VanChocStrawberry & @amandal, and I already see it pop up in my feed ! I'm sure I'll be noticing it all over the place now! #ThanksLitsy #themoreyouknow 1y
alanacristin @UrsulaMonarch i find that happens all the time on Litsy ❤ what a fun community! 1y
ReadingOver50 Good series 1y
AmandaL @UrsulaMonarch It's a fun genre with a dedicated fan base! @alanacristin I started this series years ago. I read several books in, but I think there have been a bunch more since I last read it. I hope you enjoy! 1y

I‘ve decided to display my TBR a little more creatively! I‘ll color in the spines as I read them, which hopefully will help motivate me to read them🙃📚🧡 #tbr #reading #thankslitsy

Born.A.Reader I would love to do this -except I rearrange my shelves too often so I'd have to draw a new picture every week! Such a cute idea though! 2y
TheLibrarian Great idea! 2y
Cailey_Mac I saw someone else do this, and I loved the idea! I figured it would visually motivate me a little more 🙃 1y

I'm no good with lots of tech and I can't commit to journaling so I make lists. Here's my old school index card catalog of books I've read since 2007. 10 books on each card, 2 kids in between and I've already read as many books at this point in 2017 as I read in all of 2016! #ThanksLitsy #blameitonlitsy #mytribe #noyourockandyouknowthat

I started this last night, just because my loan is going to expire soon and I wanted to see if it was worth trying to get it read quickly.

I ended up staying up way too late because I couldn't put it down. Very good so far! 😃

LectricSheep It was one of my absolute favorite books last year!!! ❤️I'm glad you're enjoying it. Do you have a favorite character/species so far? 😀 2y

I really enjoyed this audiobook. I've decided I'm a late-blooming #AustenFanGirl (#thanksLitsy !)
I watched the tv miniseries yesterday and, though I enjoyed it, I felt the changes they made weren't necessary.

I've only recently started reading poetry ( #thankslitsy ) and my library doesn't have much to offer, but I enjoyed this collection. My mom's family is from the Detroit area and worked in the car and steel industry around the same time he writes about, so it was a bit like traveling back in time with Mimi again. #poetry
