I‘m nearing the end of the first book and I really have to know, do we learn more about Geilie? I want to find out more and I hate to think that little glimpse is all I‘ll get!

All of us who have worked retail can relate to Customer Service Wolf! My co-worker introduced me to this awesome webcomic about a wolf who runs a bookshop! And sometimes poor CS Wolf gets so frustrated he eats his customers 😂

I just couldn‘t do it. This book definitely held my interest but, between this and having to listen to the guy‘s voice constantly on the news, it‘s just Trump over saturation. And I do NOT need that in my life. I‘m running away now. DNF at 47%....*Also, I cropped that bizarre orange colored face. No one wants to look at that 😂 #sorrynotsorry

ferskner Thank you 1y
Jess7 Haha. I‘m about 75 percent done listening to this on audible. It‘s challenging and overwhelming to listen to. It‘s packed with details, but it seems to go on and on about how incompetent he is. I agree, he is a joke, but it doesn‘t make it any easier to listen to or accept this reality we‘re living in. Ughhh three more years of this. 😳😳😩 (edited) 1y

I told myself I wasn‘t going to read it. But the temptation was too great. And when he tried to stop the publication, that‘s when I went and bought it. Now the question is, will I make it through or hurl the book at the wall in a fit of rage?

I‘ve been thinking about next year‘s #LitsyReadingChallenge and trying to come up with ideas for the “War/Military Memoir” prompt. Military history is definitely not one of my favorites so this was a hard one! But living in WA, the Japanese internment during WWII is a very important part of our history. In addition to Farewell to Manzanar, this is a memoir of that time. I haven‘t decided which one to read yet though! Any other suggestions? #LRC

readinginthedark Storm of Steel has been on my TBR for a few years! It would fit the prompt, although considering your original plans, I‘m not sure if it‘s what you‘re wanting. 2y

I was so excited to hear about the #throwbackreadathon taking place in January! I‘m just thinking about all the books I loved as a kid that I can revisit! I especially liked the Sunfire series. If you were a girl back in the eighties and nineties you might‘ve read one or two of these. And there‘s no way I can leave out R.L. Stine! And Christopher Pike!

These books were so much fun. I was giggling the whole way through, recognizing myself in so much of it. The second book wasn‘t quite as good, in my opinion. It felt like she had a lot of leftover strips that just wouldn‘t make it into the first, so she crammed them into another volume. But it was still an enjoyable read.

This book was heartbreaking. One of the best I‘ve read this year. This definitely isn‘t a complainti but I‘m a girl who likes things tied up. I wish there had been a bit more closure for some of the characters. I can‘t always get what I want though and it certainly didn‘t detract from the story. And Bebe‘s story had an unexpected ending! I thought I had that figured out! #LFEReadalong

Literally everyone in this book is making me angry. That‘s not a bad thing - I‘m loving it. I close the book and fume over them like they‘re real people. It‘s a very compelling story. But I could honestly punch all of them right now, especially Mia and Mrs. Richardson #lfereadalong

MinDea Aaaahhhh! Yea, everyone is maddeningly frustrating 2y

This book is gripping. I have a hard time putting it down. But right now it's too disturbing. The thought of a worldwide pandemic that kills most of the population. You get off a plane to find the world is basically ending and you're stuck there for years because there is nowhere else to go. And you never hear from your loved ones again. My next read needs to be something sweet and optimistic 😢
