julesG This looks fun 2y
EloisaJames It‘s .99 on Kindle and Nook. That said, much though I love a bonk-fest, the punctuation problems in the sample drive me nuts (I‘m an English prof, living up to the cliche, right now). 2y
BeveragesAndBooks @EloisaJames I actually ended up DNFing it - the sentence structures left me cold. Need to dig out a Jilly Cooper to recover! 2y

BeveragesAndBooks @Bianca Of Mess and Moxie by Jen Hatmaker (audio version) or the slew of Kristen Proby‘s I read. What was your best Sept read? 2y
Bianca @BeveragesAndBooks I‘ve been meaning to read a Proby for a bit. Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire hands down. It‘s one of my favorites so far this year. 2y

Ellen Pao‘s memoir will not surprise you, if you are a woman or have been paying attention to how women are treated in professional spaces. That doesn‘t mean you shouldn‘t read it. #feminism #tech #women #SilliconValley

HeatherS_AAR I read part of the book. I didn't finish, only because it had to go back to the library. It was interesting to me particularly because someone I was close to was (is) involved in Scientology. 2y

Thanks @Jas16 for the challenge! I'm at the shore for the weekend, so I've limited it to my digital TBR for the #fivestarpredictions. Some have been on here for a while, and one is a ARC I just got and am chomping at the bit to get started on.

I tag @michelleinphilly @jokila and @chachic if they wanna play

Read this when it came out in #Ireland in 2014, and just re-read it's American incarnation. Holy shite, y'all, this is a #thriller for the ages. If you like dark, twisted, #psychological tales, this is a MUST GET.

RadicalReader @BeveragesAndBooks psychological thrillers are my all time favorite so hard to find good ones but with your recommendation I quickly added it to my TBR then to my request list at my local library 2y

Unpopular opinion time... but y'all it is my truth, as Litsy slides into excitement for the season. I'll be over here, not reading horror, and wishing you all the absolute best time.

Libby1 You won't be alone! I love Autumn but I'm not a fan of Halloween. I'm not grumpy or judgmental about it. I just don't find it fun. 🎃 2y
MicheleinPhilly I love Fall and creepy books but Halloween itself? Meh. I loved it as a kid and I enjoy giving candy out to the kids but I just don't get into it otherwise. 2y
Chachic Halloween really isn't a thing here in the Philippines but the country has started copying the US trend of wearing costumes to celebrate. 2y

BeveragesAndBooks @Libby1 same! Huge autumn fan, but all this fuss over spooky reads and costumes and... nah. Not for me. 2y
BeveragesAndBooks @MicheleinPhilly same. my Irish husband loves passing out the candy, since they don't do that there and he's fascinated by it, but I'm so meh about it. 2y
BeveragesAndBooks @Chachic aye. UK and Ireland are similar! Started trick-or-treating cuz so many kiddos saw it on TV 2y

Plucky heroines are my favorite, but this one's stubbornness sometimes got me - probably because the particular pain she was carrying hit a bit close to home. Anyway, with Dare's signature wit, this one's a winner! #romantsy #litsypartyofone

Holy #suspense, Batman. One of the highlights of the summer for sure. If you're a fan of twisty stories heavy on psychology, pick this up.

Quirky look at six different women through their relationship with food. Eleanor Roosevelt was the strongest chapter for me, followed by Eva Braun. #nonfiction #food #foodwriting
