Part 3 physical tbr- I‘ve been focused on library books lately because I know my own books aren‘t going anywhere which has been really good in stopping me buying books, but after doing this my goal is to find a good balance between library books and my reducing my own tbr.

Physical tbr part 2- hopefully this can push me to focus on my own books a bit I might try this again in a few months to see if there‘s much difference 🤞

inmegslibrary I love this idea! 1w
Boooooks Thanks I saw a video of someone doing this on YouTube and only turning books around once they had read them I thought it‘s a good way to tackle the tbr but I can‘t commit to the plain spines 😂 1w

Comic book prompt- this is the 3rd in the series and these are the only comic/ graphic novels I‘ve ever tried I need to explore the format more because so far I‘m thinking it may not be for me, plus with this I have a hard time separating it from the show 🤔 #booked2019 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job on getting it done. Graphic novels are so widely varied in story and art. You may find some others that are more to your liking. Or not. 🤪 2w

I still don‘t fully get the prompt for genrebusting if this counts or not but it‘s sort of a fantasy, historical fiction/ romance with lots of unanswered questions and a timeline that‘s all over the place but either way I really liked it and loved the characters. @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft #booked2019 #summer #genrebusting

Cinfhen Sounds #genrebursting to me!!! I started this book years ago but never finished it 😬I‘ve always meant too 2w
Boooooks @Cinfhen thanks for getting back to me, i get why you put it down it‘s very slow on the plot but I loved the atmosphere 2w
Cinfhen I fell in love with the cover ❤️ 2w

Definitely not as good as the show this had made me reminiscing though, mostly on Blair‘s outfits which meant apparently for some reason when I was searching it on Pinterest I kept typing Gossip Gorl by accident so I had to know if there‘s a Gru meme and of course there is it‘s the internet 😂

I take back what I said about not liking Eleanor I feel bad now, this book was amazing once I got into the second half I just took too long reading the first half my bad Eleanor please forgive me 😂

1/5⭐️ i really didn‘t like this one I hated all of the characters which I‘m sure was supposed to be the case for the most part but I genuinely still have no clue whether we were supposed to root for the main character at least but I just didn‘t care. Also I know they‘re cheerleaders and everything so their bodies would be a big part of it but it felt like I was hearing the same passage about ‘tight bodies‘ over and over again.

Karisa I bailed on this one too. Plot and characters felt so empty. 1mo

At this point I‘ve spent the same amount of time on this as I did reading clash of kings (about 5 weeks 😱) and I‘m not even half way through. I don‘t know what‘s going on it‘s not hard to read and I am actually enjoying it although I don‘t like Eleanor yet which doesn‘t really matter but for some reason I‘m only reading a few pages at a time 😅

I am loving this sooooo much so far I‘m so annoyed with myself for putting it off for so long because it‘s so big ahh. I only started it now because I wanted to start the show along with everyone else in the world it has being the cause of severe fomo. I‘m just hoping that the books and show start to go in different directions just so if I get further ahead with the show not every single part of the books are spoiled.

Both 3/5, oh my god I hated every single character it the dinner and I know that‘s not the point of the book but still I kept waiting for just one person to root for ahh this book was crazy. And I liked the idea of the surface breaks but I kept finding myself being like “nope bad decision main character” on every page! #booked2019 @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage

Cinfhen I agree, the characters in The Dinner were SO awful! I disliked that book, it was hard to connect to anyone in the pages 4mo

#booked2019 - book that features a musician 5/5⭐️ I may have loved this even more than the hate you give. Like the hate you give I love the way she writes families that feel real unlike a lot of other YA books. I sort of wanna see what this would be like as an audiobook as well especially with the rap sections. @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft #featuresamusician

5/5⭐️!!!!! I know it‘s only February but I‘m pretty sure this is gonna be one of my favourites of 2019 because this was seriously amazing. I read this as a library ebook in an attempt reduce book buying but I may need to make an exception for this one and buy it because I can definitely see myself re-reading at some point and I loved it so much I want it on my shelf!!

Just got my library app never listened to an audiobook before so I actually have no ideas where to start 🤔

inthegreensandblues I think you have some solid picks there to start with. If the narrator is good, then I think thrillers and memoirs are great in audio format. And Stephen Fry is always good! 5mo

1⭐️😰 ahhh I feel bad that I really didn‘t like this book. I get the whole lost generation after the war thing explaining the lack of anything really happening but it didn‘t make it any less boring. It‘s just lots of scenes of them drinking in different places and it honestly felt like I was reading the same five pages again and again through the whole book. 😬

It took a while but finally finished this one I struggled through 3/4 of it but didn‘t want to quit it and then flew through the last 100 pages, it‘s so not enjoyable and completely putdownable for the the subject matter and really long winded writing but at the end every part of it felt important to the story. I can tell it‘s the kind of book that I keep thinking about and changing my opinion of over time. 4/5⭐️
