Sci-fi time travel pandemic book? If anyone can pull it off it‘s Mandel. Love her. #bigjunereadathon @Clwojick

Clwojick Oooh. Sounds interesting. I‘m not normally one for sci-fi, but this one sounds intriguing. 2d

Dear Edward | Ann Napolitano

Well written and a quick read. 12 year old Edward is the sole survivor of a plane crash. The book weaves two story lines together; one detailing the moments leading up to the accident, the other about Edward‘s journey as a survivor. #bigjuneteadathon book 5/10 @Clwojick

Clwojick This one was heart wrenching. I loved it. 💖 2d

Love is not strong enough for how I feel about this book. Beautifully written, artful, and quietly heart wrenching. A story about love, relationships, and loss that‘s left me with a hole in my heart and a #bookhangover like I haven‘t had in a long time. 💛

Definitely not what I was expecting after reading Guncle, but I was pleasantly surprised. I cheered, I sobbed, and I held my aging pup a little tighter and a little longer.

LOOKING FOR RECOMMENDATIONS. It‘s literally been years since I‘ve posted anything, but I‘m home sick and looking for something to binge read. Here are some in my TBR, but I also have a kindle and an Overdrive account so open to any and all suggestions.

LiteraryinLawrence Hi again! Of the ones pictured I‘m a big fan of The Little Prince. But overall one of my favorite books of the last couple years was The House in the Cerulean Sea! 1mo
Amiable That Wally Lamb book is one of my all-time favorites! I‘ve read it multiple times. It‘s so good. And the Henrietta Lacks book is phenomenal if you are in the mood for NF. 1mo
DivineDiana I recommend Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows. Much better than that title! #strongwomen Feel better! (edited) 1mo

Alfoster @Amiable I agree with you;love Wally Lamb books and this one was awesome!❤️👊 1mo
BookNerd9906 @LiteraryinLawrence @Amiable @Alfoster thank you so much for your input. The Little Prince is short so I powered through that, and now I‘m tackling the Wally Lamb chunkster. I‘ll have no shortage of binge reading while home sick. 1mo

#BFCr4 check in. I‘m finally starting to have some relief from back pain. Revising my goals accordingly. I‘d like to try and get 60,000 steps this week. Try one yoga class. And make time to go to the chiropractor. Stepping up my reading goal to 3 books this week. And getting back on track with calorie intake. Side note, this book is so well done and trauma informed. Everyone should read it.

Bookwormjillk Love your new goals! 3y
abookishbutterfly This book was fantastic. I second your recommendation! 3y
BookNerd9906 Thanks @Bookwormjillk ❤️❤️❤️ 3y
MatchlessMarie I started this one a while back but it expired back to library purgatory before I could finish it. I need to check it out again. 3y
BookNerd9906 @MatchlessMarie yes, definitely. I‘m only about a third of the way through but it‘s really insightful, especially informative in my work as a social worker. 3y

My first 5 ⭐️ read of 2019. #blameitonlitsy never disappoints. I loved everything about this book. Unputdownable, amazing character development, strong female protagonist, and to say it‘s beautifully written is an understatement. This was my first Taylor Jenkins Reid, but now I am anxious to get my hands on anything she‘s ever written. Everyone read this book, it‘s too good to miss! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

So cold today they actually delayed school. -16 degrees this morning, but I made it to the gym. And because it‘s New England, where Mother Nature tries to fit in all the seasons in one week, it‘s supposed to be 40 degrees tomorrow. 🙄 #litsywalkers #audiowalk

catebutler Ha! That type of weather seems to be our typical too! We were in the 50‘s, dropped down to the low teens, and now back almost to the 40‘s, all in a day or so. 3y

What to read next? Excited to jump in to my “sci-fi starter kit” sent to me by the fabulous @slightlyfoxed but I can‘t decide which one to read first? Suggestions for my next #winterstormreadathon pick?

TheSpineView I would pick Illuminae 3y
RainyDayReading I would go with Illuminae. It‘s easier to get into and read than the other two (and by easier I mean in the sense of this being a sci-fi starter kit, Illuminae would be a better intro) I would go Illuminae, All Systems Red and then Ancillary. (edited) 3y

In my life as a mom of three bada$$ wrestlers, #myshot is a 2 point take down. My son, in his senior year, and final tournament, was not going to miss his shot. He continued to wrestle with a shoulder injury (that we soon after learned was a fractured scapula) to earn points for his team, and not go down without a fight. And by some miracle, he won!

A book that never would have been on my radar if it weren‘t for the recommendation of the lovely @Mem_ugh and @monalyisha for hosting #newyearwhodis I am so glad I read it, and ironically there was a reference in the book to the song by Switched Up, by Nick Grant so now I also get where the #newyearwhodis hashtag came from. Lol, I must be getting old. #notashipasiusedtobe

LauraBeth I still want to read this one! 3y
Mem_ugh I‘m so glad you liked it!! 3y
Elma This is on my #newyearwhodis list too. Can't wait to read it. 3y
BookNerd9906 @Elma Awesome! You‘ll have to let us know what you think. 3y

It‘s four degrees out here. There is no other reasonable place to be, than in bed, with hot tea, and a good book. Max says it‘s too cold to read, he‘s hibernating. #dogsoflitsy

tracey38 I don't blame him. That is cold! 3y
C.Perone Perfect plan; for both you and Max! 3y
