#7days7covers #covercrush Day2

I bought this version of Bleak House because I loved the cover Another Litten posted a pic of it and I thought that THIS COVER will make me read it! That was almost three years ago. Still stacked.
Tagging a Litten :

Connster That‘s a really cool cover! That also sounds like something I‘d do! Thanks for tagging. Mine is the tagged book...every version of the cover I‘ve seen just...makes sense. 2d
Bklover @Connster I love Holden Caulfield! 2d

This was the audiobook that got me through 15 hours of driving today. I think it was the audio that made this book appealing. If I hadn‘t had a voice to go with the main character I think I wouldn‘t have found him sympathetic at all. Thought it was clever and fun, although the ending was a bit rushed. Definitely made my trip easier!
Oh, and as I have had trouble finishing books this summer, at least I can say I finished this one!

I haven‘t read much alternate history and it‘s fascinating seeing people and events worked into a new version of the past.

Okay, if no one has any objections I think I‘ll use this one for #LMPBC #GROUPV #round6. I couldn‘t decide between this and Ice Hunt but Subterranean has fewer pages so I chose it. Both are over 400 though, and I want you to know it‘s a mass market paperback so the marking up notes may have to be mostly post-its if there are any objections I‘m happy to keep looking.

Avanders Yay! I‘ve never read anything by Rollins! I‘m cool w whatever format 😉 So excited! 3mo
Bklover @Avanders I haven‘t either, but I‘m excited. I spent FOREVER today at Barnes and Noble looking at all of his books and trying to decide which one to use. I figure the extra pages are ok since they are smaller pages !! 3mo

This is the longest I‘ve ever been away from Litsy. You may not have missed me but boy have I missed you all! It‘s been graduation time at my house and I haven‘t had time to even think about reading. It‘s been a good time though- now I‘m ready to get back at it. Time to catch up on some #Booked2019. Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!! 💕💕💕💕

Hi all- I‘m going to a conference with my daughter at the end of May in Albany New York. Is anyone familiar with Albany and could recommend bookstores or bookish places to explore while I‘m there?

#Booked2019
I read this for #Booked2019 #foodorbeverageoncover
It‘s a romance, which I don‘t read many of anymore but it was pure enjoyment. The author‘s depiction of Americans make us all sound like a bunch of idiotic buffoons but the story was lovely and I‘d happily read another by this author. (Of course there ARE Americans that are idiotic buffoons but hopefully we aren‘t all that way!)

Leftcoastzen That cover makes me want a cupcake now! 4mo
Hooked_on_books Even though the cupcake to frosting ratio is off in the picture, I totally want to eat that. 4mo
Cinfhen Every so often I WANT A CUPCAKE 🧁 and this is one of those times❣️❣️❣️❣️ 4mo

SLUMP. I am in a slump. I‘m currently reading Where The Crawdads Sing and a few others I am meandering through. I may wait on WTCS because I love it and I can‘t give it my full attention. This is all I read in April, the Achebe being the best. I also enjoyed The Golden Hour, but was not impressed with the Genova book. Hoping for a much more productive May!
#AprilReads

JanuarieTimewalker13 It happens. I‘m slogging through Bag of Bones, and I also feel like I‘m totally unmotivated in other areas of life. I feel like it could be bc here in NJ, it seems as though Spring is on hold. So I‘ve put my whole life on hold. Strange. (edited) 5mo
Bklover @JanuarieTimewalker13 Hopefully we can both drag ourselves out of our slumps. I‘m also having trouble staying motivated in other areas- hopefully this won‘t last!!! 💚💚 5mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Well, I have lavender nails now, so I‘m pushing myself to #BelieveinSpring lol 🌷🌼🌸🌹 5mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego You did good! 📖💖 5mo
dariazeoli I hope your slump is short-lived! ❤️ 5mo

Starting this one tonight for IRL book group Tuesday. Hope it‘s as good as everyone says!

Oh, and by the way I HATE when they put those Reese‘s and Oprah‘s book club blurbs on the cover. Pet peeve.

SheilaChew I enjoyed reading that book! Just finished it last week. Hope you like it! 5mo
fleeting Same! I hope they don't put the sticker or label because it destroys the cover art. And that's the least of it. 😖 5mo
Cathythoughts I loved it ♥️👍🏻 5mo

Mehso-so

Definitely not her best. While I imagine her portrayal of Huntington‘s Disease is deadly accurate, I found the rest of the book to be a bit tedious. Four adult kids (who all still live at home?!?!) trying to decide whether or not to find out if they carry the gene that will give them HD. I did learn a lot about this horrific disease, but overall was a bit disappointed.

tammysue I agree with everything, a so-so for me too. 5mo

I‘m not sure how I missed this one all these years. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Naj I really need to read this. Has been on my tbr since forever. 5mo
gradcat @Naj Ditto. I know it‘s on some TBR of mine—not sure if it‘s Litsy, but I need to get it. 5mo
Marilyncjackson This book changes my life. It changes the way I saw some things and thought about things. Granted I had a really good professor go through it with us, but still excellent book. 5mo

Thank you so much @WilliamMorrowBooks for this ARC! I loved it- a definite ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Three time periods, with the largest portion taking place in the Bahamas during WWII. Loved the characters and found the story fascinating. I did find all the cigarette smoking distracting a bit, but that‘s my only complaint. Looking forward to her next book!

C.Perone Ooooo a new Beatriz Williams 👏👏 When is it due to come out? 5mo
Bklover @C.Perone It‘s out July 9th. 5mo
C.Perone @Bklover Thanks! 5mo
