I read this years ago and really want to see this. However, the trailer doesn‘t depict the serious matters in this book. Lots of trigger warnings and not appropriate for children. I‘m not sure if I‘ll see it with my husband who has had soldiers commit suicide 💔 just be aware 💔

Bklover Thank you for the warning!❤️ 2d
xicanti When I read the book, I was amazed all the reviews I saw ahead of time emphasized the comedy without even mentioning the multiple suicide attempts. They‘re definitely something people should be aware of going in. 2d
PageShifter Yeah for me it was definitely more sad and tragic book than comedy. I don't understand how some stories are marketed wrong. That was the reason why I didn't like Beach Read: it was marketed as a fluffy and fun book and it was quite serious. Otherwise I might have liked it, not when sold wrong. 2d

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @xicanti yes!! People are taking their kids to see this because the trailer looks light and fluffy 😫 1d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @PageShifter thanks for the warning on Beach Read! I haven‘t read it yet. I wish they would market books correctly… 1d
Deblovestoread The marketing of this book was way off base. I read it was “laugh out loud funny” so I went into it with that expectation. It was not that and I hated it…unpopular opinion I know. Our local first responder‘s chaplains group is also warning citizens to be aware of the movie‘s content. 1d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Deblovestoread yes!! I saw a post from a chaplain… I hope people will do their research before watching this. I have dealt with suicide in my family and now I‘m not sure if I want to watch it 💔 1d

Escapinwithbooks I haven‘t but just put it on my wish list today because I want to read it before I watch the movie. I try to always read the book first, if I know there is a book. 1d
Read4life Yes, I have. I love Backman. I was lucky enough to have been given an accurate description of the book beforehand so I wasn‘t shocked. I keep seeing it portrayed as warm & funny. While it has its moments, it is definitely a serious read. Have you read it? 1d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Read4life yes.. I‘ve read it. My husband hasn‘t. It‘s been a while but I don‘t remember the scenes as graphic as they are saying in the movie.. 24h
Read4life I haven‘t seen Otto but I thought the book was more subtle than what I‘m hearing of the movie. Backman tackles serious topics & issues but I‘ve never thought of his writing as graphic. I don‘t remember the original movie being graphic either. 20h

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I finished last night and I really hate I wasted the time and money on it. I feel bad for him regarding his mother and I also think the paparazzi are a huge problem, but when you‘re a member of the royal family you have to deal with it. I don‘t blame any of his past girlfriends for not wanting to be a part of that life. I wouldn‘t want to be !! Meghan knew going in how the paps were because of her own job. What do you think? 7h

I wanted to share this with all of my #LitsyLove peeps and others who may do scrapbooking! I ordered all of this from a site called Temu for $15 it does ship from overseas. I ordered it in the 12th and got it yesterday! I only spent a little money because I was unsure if it would arrive in a timely manner. I am very pleased with everything I bought and the cost! Just thought I would share! ❤️📚📝

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @GingerAntics ikr!!!! I wouldn‘t be telling everyone!! 😂😂 6d
GingerAntics @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I wondered about that, then I thought maybe he was just feeling like he was going to put it all out there. He got to control the narrative and how it went out, plus it answered a question apparently even the New York Times was asking, so 🤷🏼‍♀️. 6d
GingerAntics @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I suppose he wanted to put that “burning question” (no pun intended) to rest, and it would have been weirder to just throw that tidbit in, so he made it part of the narrative. Plus, of meant people were laughing about it instead of wondering where that came from. 6d
Sleepswithbooks @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks …. This “frostbite” isn‘t near his dingle is it? I‘m starting to get a sneaking suspicion it is … 😮🙅🏻‍♀️❄️ 6d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @GingerAntics haha! You are right! 5d
Sleepswithbooks @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks - Why would it be unprotected in the cold?? Boys are always fiddling around with those things and see what happens!!

Spending some time with Prince Harry now.. I‘m not sure yet how I feel about this… I‘m only about 50 pages in and I feel like the things he‘s been complaining about with his brother are normal things all siblings go through. Like being the middle child. I do feel bad for things he went through after losing his mom 💔 Super sad 😞 however other things I feel like he‘s whining about… let‘s continue…

MrsV I‘ve been on the fence on reading this one. I‘ll probably just end up putting a hold on it from the library. 2w
CoverToCoverGirl Agreed.. it continues on though out the entire book. I have empathy for him on his Mom‘s horrible passing but not so much for other things. 2w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @CoverToCoverGirl @MrsV I was on the fence too, don‘t buy it! I‘m not sure if I‘ll finish it if the whining gets worse 🤦🏻‍♀️ 2w

CoverToCoverGirl @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘m glad I didn‘t buy it. My library sent it to me on release day. 2w
bthegood Glad I'm not the only one, yes hard events in life, but he has resources and options most people never have to cope with those hard times - maybe that part (gratitude) is in the book? The best memoirs offer up understanding and gratitude (IMO). 1w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @bthegood haven‘t gotten to the gratitude yet… I‘m going to really try to finish it… 1w
wordslinger42 I decided not to read this one. I watched their Netflix documentary, I've seen some of the interviews in connection with the book and feel, in some ways, that enough is enough. I do really feel for all he's gone through, but it seems to be becoming about airing dirty laundry/private family drama more and more and that's just not for me! 1w

InkedBookworm13 Most of the books I want to buy are series I have already read and loved so much that I have to own them. (Frostblood, Caraval, Air Awakens, Cruel Prince) 2w

Happy Monday everyone!!

What are you reading today? Describe your day 📚❤️

It‘s very gloomy here in Mississippi ☁️ 60 degrees Fahrenheit and about to rain ☔️ I do love the rain! I‘m still in pajamas, in my recliner with my favorite blanket reading the tagged book. I did make myself clean the bathroom and wash some clothes 🤷🏻‍♀️ I also got some #LitsyLove ready to be mailed tomorrow 📝📬💌

Slajaunie I‘m in south Louisiana and the weather is very similar to your. So is my day. I just moved to my library from my bed. I have on house clothes and slippers. I am starting the Shadow & Flame by Mindee Arnett. I finished the prequel last night. I also just finished The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson. 2w
