Neuromancer | William Gibson

I think I‘m probably the last litten to post their #Top6Reads of 2019 so far. Took me a bit to narrow it down, according to my GoodReads challenge, I‘ve read 68 books since Jan 1st. Rating them 1-6 is -Neuromancer(fantastic), All Systems Red(Murderbot rules), Chernobyl(nuclear nightmare), Song Of Achilles(Greek love), Ruby Ridge(scary siege) & Six Of Crows(Oceans11 on ice). Highly recommend all six! 10⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

GlassAsDiamonds 🤦🏻‍♀️ Actually .... I haven‘t posted mine either!!!! 😂😂😂 Thanks for the reminder!! (Also - Six of Crows!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 and it‘s a good thing I didn‘t read this BEFORE I‘d left the bookstore ... I have Chernobyl in my hand 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂). (edited) 1w
Megabooks Just checked Ruby Ridge out from the library! Thanks! 1w
Cinfhen Better late than never and they all sound fabulous ♥️thanks for sharing 1w

I was tagged by two incredibly terrific Littens who I‘m so grateful and blessed to be friends with ☺️, @kspenmoll and @ju.ca.no 🤗! Grateful to another special Litten as well, the one who started this hashtag, the legendary @Cinfhen 🤗! Sorry it took me some time to get to this 🙈

These are my #Top6Reads so far this year! 😁 Tough decision to make since I‘ve read many great ones not here, like Pachinko!

I think everyone‘s been tagged by now. 😆

Here are my #top6reads from 2019 so far, in the order I read them. This was definitely an interesting exercise for me. It looks like Becoming and Normal People made lots of littens‘ lists.

Thanks for a fun hashtag @Cinfhen and for the tag @BarbaraBB! If you haven‘t done it yet, feel free to join in.

Cinfhen Milkman was a popular pick, too!! Thanks for sharing your list ❤️ 2w
Suet624 Milkman and Normal People 😍 😍 😍 2w
BarbaraBB I don‘t know the three books below. So I need to check them out! 2w

#LilithJuly This slim little volume of interconnected stories all revolve around airplane travel. Each chapter is headed by airport destinations and the stories start and end at the previous destination. I was hooked from the very first “flight “ and delighted with each encounter. It‘s not available until September but reserve your #WindowSeat now 😜 #NetGalley #ARC

TrishB Clever 👍🏻 2w
Cinfhen This book almost made my #Top6Reads @TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm It still might end up on my favorites of 2019 🧡 2w
TrishB Wow 😮 that‘s praise indeed! 2w
KarenUK I‘ve already pre-ordered this based on your review 💕😊👍 2w

Lonesome Dove: A Novel | Larry McMurtry
post image

My #top6reads of 2019 so far are surprising to me. Not only is there only one horror novel on the list, but there's a massive western as well as two non-fics. I rarely ever read non-fic, and when I do I never count them as favorites. I'm a little half way done with my goal for 2019, and I'm interested to see if my trajectory of reading nontypical genres will stick.

Suet624 An interesting collection of favorites. 😁 2w
madamereadsalot1 @Suet624 I'm a bit of a mood reader. It's unpredictable. 😆 2w
jillrhudy I keep thinking I need to get around to 2w
madamereadsalot1 @jillrhudy it's so fantastic! Augustus McCrae is one of, if not fully, my absolute favorite book character(s). McMurtry's writing is exceptional! 2w

I‘m not a statistician so don‘t hold me to my calculations, but according to my findings these are the Littens #Top6Reads so far in 2019. Almost all female authors! Thanks to everyone who shared their lists, my TBR has once again reached epic proportions. It was great seeing all the different titles and I‘m excited to see what the second half of the reading year produces.

monalyisha That's fun! 2w
TrishB Cool 👍🏻 thanks for doing. I‘ve read 3 and have the other 3 on the pile! 2w
Cinfhen 146 posts x 6 books = 876 books so LOTS of diversity @monalyisha @TrishB ❣️❣️❣️❣️ 2w

squirrelbrain Ooh I love a good statistic! (Being a squirrel AND an accountant I can‘t help it!) I‘ve read 4, have Boyne on my Kindle and will read Rooney soon too... 2w
Cinfhen I‘ve read 4 too @squirrelbrain I have Crawdads on my Kindle and I‘m still on hold at library for 2w
merelybookish Fun to see! Thanks for doing the stats! 😀 2w
britt_brooke 🤩 Interesting! I‘ve read all except My Sister the Serial Killer (but I own it). Becoming and A Ladder to the Sky were both 5 star reads for me. The others were 2-3 stars. (edited) 2w
Freespirit I better get cracking...I haven't read any of these 🙄📚 2w
Melissa_J I‘m currently in the middle of My Sister the Serial Killer, but I haven‘t read any of the others. I‘ll probably get around to reading a few of these, but it likely won‘t be until a few years from now when everyone else has moved on to something else 😂 2w
Chelsea.Poole I've read all of these and have loved them all♥️ several didn't make my top 6 that are on this list but I considered all of them! 2w
MallenNC Thanks for doing the totals. This is fun to see. Becoming was on my list and I have three of the others TBR. 2w
LeahBergen Why did none of my (weird old) top six make this list? 😆😂 2w
Bookzombie Thanks for doing this! I‘m shocked that I have read half of them: Becoming, Daisy Jones and the Six, and My Sister, the Serial Killer. 2w
BarbaraBB Thanks! I am shocked that I read five of them. What a cliché I am ? 2w
erzascarletbookgasm Thanks for the stats! Interesting and fun to know. Gee, I‘ve only read the Boyne. I‘ll get to Becoming and Normal People soon! 🤞😁 2w
Cinfhen Out of 876 books posted only 18 people choose the same book to make it the favorite (which is a small number I think) which proves that Littens read all over the map @merelybookish @britt_brooke @Freespirit @Melissa_J @Chelsea.Poole @MallenNC @LeahBergen @Bookzombie @BarbaraBB @erzascarletbookgasm I‘ve read 4 2 were 5 stars ( but Ladder wasn‘t on my list because I read it in 2018) and the other 2 Daisy & Normal were only 3 star reads for me🤪👇🏼 2w
Cinfhen Proving that we all judge/ relate/feel books differently even when we read the same book!! That‘s why I love Litsy!!! 2w
BarbaraBB Great stats! 2w
Cathythoughts Well done ! That‘s really interesting 👍🏻 2w
AnneCecilie I‘ve read 4 and 3 even made my best of list. Becoming will arrive from the library sometime soon. Guess that mean that I have to check out My Sister the Serial Killer at some point 2w
Cinfhen My Sister was on my list so you must read it @AnneCecilie although @Cathythoughts bailed on it, so who knows?!??! I‘m also waiting for Becoming from my library ~ I think I‘m down to 28 from 164!!! 2w
Cathythoughts From these ones I loved Normal People & Crawdads ( you loved Crawdads to @Cinfhen .... right ? 2w
Cinfhen I haven‘t read that one yet @Cathythoughts it‘s on my kindle but im worried all the hype might make my expectations too high 2w
Cathythoughts I listened to Crawdads on Audible... it was a lovely listen 👍🏻 2w
Rachel_nyc I love that you did this! Two of mine are on there and three others are on my TBR so I guess I should look into the outlier that‘s not on my radar. 2w
Cinfhen Which one are you missing @Rachel_nyc ?!?! 2w
Rachel_nyc @Cinfhen A Ladder to the Sky didn‘t sound familiar but then I check my goodreads TBR and sure enough, it‘s there! 🤣 2w
Cortg I‘m just now seeing this! Thanks for this list. There are 2 I haven‘t read yet. One was already on my TBR and the other one I just added! Perfect! (edited) 2w
