Book #10 in the Modern Mrs Darcy Must Read mystery list! This book is the start of the inspector Gamache series which is great! I read this last summer at the beach and fell in love with the town of Three Pines. In this one a woman is found dead in the woods. Locals believe it was a hunting accident but Gamache expects there is more to it then that. It‘s a wonderful first novel to a series which will leave you wanting more!

Soo sooo sooo good! I have been flying thru this series. Two books in 6 days is fast for me and a sign that these books are FABULOUS! Etta/Eddy is a strong character and I was routing for her the entire book! In a world where things are hard and cruel she goes above and beyond to do what‘s right. This book shows differences in all kinds of people that leaves you with an open mind. I‘m headed to get the third before I go away this weekend!

Book #5 in Modern Mrs Darcy‘s Must Read mystery list! Another Kate Atkinson story that is set during WWII. An 18 year old girl name Juliet is searching for a job and is surprised to find herself plunged into a world of espionage. Her past seems to chase her and threaten the life she tries to make years after the war. It takes a few chapters to get oriented but after that you won‘t want to put it down! Atkinson is a fantastic writer!

Book #4 of the Modern Mrs Darcy Must Read mystery list! This is a first book in the Jackson Brodie series. I am familiar with the author but havent heard of this series either. Lots of great new books for my TBR! This story follows three separate cases that the private investigator is trying to solve. The links between the three will stun you!! Definitely a must read! Any fans of this series?

Whose Body? | Dorothy L. Sayers
post image

Book #3 of Modern Mrs Darcy‘s Must Read mystery list! This is the first of the Lord Peter Wimsey series where he find a dead body in a bathtub! I can‘t even imagine. This series is said to be one of a kind, something all readers should at least read once. It is so popular that it was made into a radio series, a tv series, and has been republished several times with many different covers. The audiobooks are said to be delightful as well!

Crazeedi These may be like Rex Stouts 'Nero Wolfe' series? I absolutely adored these. This is the first one 4mo
QuietlyLaura I‘ve read this one! The body is in some guy‘s bathtub with only a pair of pince-nez on. Good mystery! 4mo

The blog post today from @annebogel aka Modern Mrs Darcy grabbed my attention.It is about mysteries that keep you turning the page and when you get to the revealing part you look back and think, “How in the world did the author do that!”Then you start to see the important clues that you read all along not realizing they were important. I ADORE books like that!She shared 12 books that fit this category and I thought I would share them with you 👇🏾

BookaholicNatty This is the first book on the list! It is said to be one of the greatest detective novels ever written! I‘m anxious to find out. It‘s from a series of detective novels called the Lord Peter Wimsey Series. I hadn‘t ever heard of these before, maybe because they are an older series. Have many of you read this book or are you familiar with this series? 4mo
IndoorDame My parents had a set of those when I was a kid. Old paperbacks from the 70s? maybe? I read a few when I was in middle school. Thanks for reminding me of them - they didn‘t completely capture me then, but that‘s something I‘d LOVE to read now! 4mo

The babysitters club series impacted my life as a preteen and teenager. It even inspired me to start my own babysitting service in my local community. My mom saved this flyer I had made to invited other gals to join my club! I used this is my speech the other day! Isn‘t that funny!! Some of my other favorite books during this time were The Boxcar Children, Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High, Beverly Cleary and Goosebumps. Such great memories!!!

I am taking an effective speaking class right now and for my first speech we had to write an informative speech that describes something about our life. I picked how books influenced me as a child, a preteen and teenager, and how they continue to impact me today. I shared some of my favorite books from each part of my life and this was one of my favorites from my childhood. Also Berenstan Bears, George and Martha(Hippos), Spot,and Curious George.

Also snagged this at the library this morning! It is a lot thicker than I thought it would be. Definitely the longest of the four so far. I‘m not sure where this is going to go after the ending of Morning Star. I have heard it‘s a lot different than the other ones but I‘m anxious to find out for myself. I also checked out the audiobook so I can listen in the car and when I‘m out walking. Another fabulous #SeriesRead I‘m looking forward to!

BookaholicNatty @MellieAntoinette I know right!!!!! I had thought in the end of the second book or the beginning of the third what would happen if Mustang got pregnant. So that thought did cross my mind. But Cassius had me fooled man! And I seriously thought Sevro was dead and I was like noooooo! That ending had me fooled so bad! I just didn‘t see that coming at all. What did you think?? 4mo
MellieAntoinette @BookaholicNatty I wasn‘t expecting mustang (or anyone) to wind up as Ruler. But they have a son!!! I wonder if that‘s what people mean by this ending disappointed them?? It was a little undo redo. But I personally felt like it fit. I wanted Jackal to have a harsher end! 4mo

This came in sooner than I thought it would and I‘m so stoked! I flew thru the first book in 3 days and can‘t wait to see what journey this book is going to lead me on! Unlike the first book where the main character was a midwife, Etta is a scavenger who tries to save the lives of women and children who have been taken by brutal slave traders after the great plague that wiped away the world of almost all women and children! Can‘t wait! #SeriesRead

squirrelbrain Let me know how you both get on @BookaholicNatty and @riversong153 - I loved the first one but I‘d *heard* this one wasn‘t as good so haven‘t tried it.... 4mo
riversong153 @squirrelbrain the second one is definitely different but I think it stands up and is really good so far. I think people may think it‘s less good because going through the tragic events that happened to shift the world seems more interesting than already living in the new world that has been created as a result of what happened. 4mo

I have enjoyed all three books in the series so far. I‘m not sure which one is my favorite. I really wish they would make this into a tv series. That would be AWESOME!!! Want to read the fourth book before the 5th one comes out on July 30th! Who‘s excited?? #SeriesRead

This book was soooo good!! I didn‘t realize it was a part of a series. I originally read it bc it is our June book club pick but I flew thru it in 3 days and already have the next two on hold at the library. It is a dystopian sci-fi book. It is partially told thru a series of journal entries which I always enjoy. It tells the story of a midwifes survival journey when most of the world is killed and only few women are left. 5⭐️ #SeriesRead

I found this on the book sale rack at the library today for a dollar. This is a book I have seen ALOT of here on Litsy and have heard many of you say nothing but good things about it so I grabbed it today! Can‘t beat a dollar. “A sweeping historical sage that traces five generations of fiercely powerful mothers and daughters-witches whose magical inheritance is both a dangerous threat and an extraordinary gift.” This is going to be a good one!

This is another book I picked up today that was a book club selection. I am catching up on books from February until June because nursing school got in the way of my reading! I haven‘t read anything by Michael Chabon but I have heard wonderful things about his writing. This is a story of a sheltered son of a Jewish mobster. “It‘s a coming of age story that will make you feel good and also take you by surprise” Considered a Modern Classic.

Picked up this graphic novel that I had on hold at the library. It took a little while for it to come. This was picked for my online book club that I‘m looking forward to reading. It has tons of recipes in it but is a memoir written in graphic novel form. On thing I love about our book club is that I get to read of a lot of things I wouldn‘t have otherwise even known about. Has anyone read this already or even heard of it?

There are 10 men for every woman that survives so this story is about how this woman survives in a world which can be evil and unfair. I‘m looking forward to this read! How many of you have already read this one?

I have been listening to Red Rising on audio as a refresher since it‘s been awhile since I last read it and there is so many things I had forgotten, like Titus and Sevro.

DGRachel I enjoyed the original trilogy more than Iron Gold. I didn‘t care for the shift to multiple perspectives, but I understand why Pierce did it. I can‘t wait for Dark Age in July, but if it‘s anything like Golden Son, it is going to shred my heart. Golden Son is still my favorite of the four published and it was such an emotional read, I nearly threw the book across the room when I finished. Enjoy!! (Just be sure to have Morning Star ready after GS) 5mo
Addison_Reads I loved this trilogy and recommend it all the time to sci-fi fans. Iron Gold was boring to me, but the original 3 are excellent. Enjoy💜 5mo

For all my Gail Carriger lovers, she released this book yesterday. Has anyone read it already? It has aliens, murder, and romance. I fell in love with Carriger when I read her Soulless series! I‘m looking forward to reading her latest book! 📚

theresidentromantic I'm doing an audio reread of The Parasol Protectorate rn! So I can get to all the little novellas. Like Biffys 😍 I'll probably read this when that's over! I'm excited to see what she did that's so different she changed up her penname 5mo

Unsheltered: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver
post image

Found this at the library while visiting my family in Delaware this week. Good find for a dollar!! I have seen and heard good things about this book but am curious to know what my #LitsyFamily thinks of it. I enjoy Barbara Kingsolver. I loved The Poisonwood Bible ALOT!!!! If you haven‘t read that one you should. The audiobook of it is good as well or at least I thought so. Do you have a favorite Kingsolver book?

C.Perone I really enjoyed this one. Bailed on Poisonwood Bible, though. 5mo
kathedron Loved it! ❤ 5mo
Christine Poisonwood is one of my favorites, too, and I really enjoyed Unsheltered. :) 5mo

rachaich I loved Poison wood and also Prodigal Summer. 5mo
LeeRHarry Prodigal Summer is my fave - although I haven‘t read them all including this one 😊 5mo
Herschelian Am listening to this as an audio book. Kingsolver herself is the reader. Early days but I am enjoying it so far, slightly reminiscent of Anne Tyler‘s writing. 5mo

Red Rising 01 | Pierce Brown

One of my 2019 reading goals is to finish books in a series that I have already started. I enjoyed the first book of this series so much!!! I‘m relistening to it on audio before I move on to book #2 because I know there is a lot that I have already forgotten. If you are into sci-fi you will love this. What series have you started that you need to finish?? I love a good series so fill me in on your favorites! #SeriesRead

Leniverse I'm currently finishing Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy. I took a long break after the second book, both because the series is really heavy on the science, and because I was terrified that it would all go wrong in the final book and I needed to pause while I still had hope for humanity. Almost done with the final book now, and I still have hope! Love this series and want to move to Mars. 😅 5mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag I‘m a series grinch these days - often I‘m interested in the premise of a book but end up striking it off my tbr when I find out it‘s part of a series 😐 that said, I‘m still keeping up with Jim Butcher‘s The Dresden Files (which has been easy as he hasn‘t released anything for 4 or so years now), Alan Bradley‘s Flavia de Luce series and most recently fell in love with Alyssa Day‘s Tiger‘s Eye Mysteries and Ilona Andrews Innkeeper Chronicles... (edited) 5mo
BookishBelle I started Nevada Barr‘s Anna Pigeon series last year. I‘m reading the third one now. I‘m somewhere in the middle of Janet Evanovich‘s Stephanie Plum series. I need to get back to those. I‘d like to get back to The Dresden Files that @thegirlwiththelibrarybag mentioned. I read the first few probably ten years ago and really liked them but haven‘t gotten back to them. 5mo

So The Essex Serpent is going to have to wait till I get home. I have to concentrate a little more when I‘m reading it and the trampoline park is distracting me so I decided to dive into this instead and it has immediately grasped my attention! This is a buddy read from @Cinfhen !!! I think I am going to like this one Cindy!! I‘m looking forward to this one! ❤️📚

Cinfhen Yay!!!!! This book wasn‘t perfect but it gave me plenty to write and think about. And I LOVE that notebook that @TrishB gifted me❤️Hope you can read my sloppy handwriting 😜 5mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Read this a looooong time ago but I remember enjoying it 😁 5mo
bookandcat Love this book. Read it on release as a soon to be 9th grader and reread it over and over. Idk why I liked it so much because the subject matter is very dark (especially given the age I was!) but it is SO well written. 5mo

Summer is finally here for me! My nursing semester ended yesterday!I am so happy and have extremely missed this awesome Litsy community!! I‘m looking forward to reading these books along with catching up on book club reads!! This is @annebogel aka #ModernMrsDarcy summer reading list! If your into podcasts and haven‘t listened to hers yet you must check it out. It‘s called What Should I Read Next. Are you all using any special lists this summer?

LiteraryinLititz Welcome back and congrats! 5mo
MelissaSue81 No summer lists for me. My semester end Tuesday, but I have a feeling with how my summer work schedule planned out I‘m going to have less time to read instead of more. 5mo
Bookwormjillk I just added a bunch of books from her list to my library holds. Love her podcast 5mo

fleeting I'm already preparing mine (summer starts in June for me) and there's going to be a lot of book series like Ali Smith's seasonal books, Rachel Cusk's trilogy, and a Chinese sci-fi trilogy because I figure this is a good time without many interruptions! 😊 5mo
Suet624 Welcome back 5mo
MayaB1226 Congratulations on your nursing semester ending! I‘ve only read one of those books (Field Notes On Love), but I see a whole bunch more that look super interesting. Of course, I‘ll have to get through my own overflowing TBR pile first! 😂 Thank you for sharing…happy reading!! 5mo

@GripLitGrl Since the moment I first saw this book in person I thought the cover was absolutely gorgeous! The cover is what lead me to check it out and see if it would be something I would like. Needless to say, I have been wanting to read it!!!!! I would love to win a copy of this! Awesome that you have two of them and are giving one away!! Did you enjoy the book!? 📚#GripLitGrlGiveaway

GripLitGrl Thanks for entering & good luck! ☺🍀 I enjoyed it. I haven't gotten to write my review yet but the author created a unique fantasy world that really played off the dust jacket & book cover brilliantly. I loved the bit of geek factor & diversity in the charecters as well. 6mo

Hello fellow Littens! It has been awhile since I last posted! My nursing semester this spring has been INTENSE and I haven‘t had much time for anything else! I am on spring break this week and finally getting a little time to catch up on life! Today I even got to stop into my local thrift store and grab a few good reads! I haven‘t forgot you all and miss you all dearly! Hope everyone is doing well! Sending loads of love to my #LitsyFamily! ❤️😘

The Rook: A Novel | Daniel O'Malley

Today‘s prompt for #characterslikealice was the white rabbit. Two rabbits came to mind! In The Rook Myfawny has a pet rabbit whose name is Wolfgang!I couldn‘t help but think of it, if you look closely it‘s on the front cover!I also thought of Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh because he is easily flustered, is always on a time schedule, and acts cra cra sometimes just like the white rabbit!! 🐰🐰🐰
