Looks like I‘m going to be let go from my job for the 2nd time this year due to covid this arriving today and some comfort watching Gilmore girls has been the only thing to cheer me up a bit today can‘t wait for things to start getting better 😢

This was so interesting, it was an individuals story of what the war was like for them but had lots of useful information about the time and the events leading up to the war, I‘ll never understand why highschools don‘t use things like this to help understand events in history as for me the lessons were just really intense memory tests without real understanding of what happened the second I got out of my exams I forgot everything.

1. Not too much will change really I don‘t usually do much i like spending it inside cozy reading Halloweeny books or a good film
2. I‘m grateful for the Litsy community i hadn‘t been reading for quite a while and there is nothing more encouraging than this positive space to get you excited about books! 🥰

Boooooks @AnotherMissBennet when it first came out I had no interest in reading the same story from Edwards point of view but I‘ve heard such mixed things about it since that I‘m really intrigued about it now!! 😬 1y
I.be.Stef @Boooooks I get what you mean. Fair warning, it‘s darker than the others. Be prepared for chapters of depression and anxiety. I think only 30% of the book is happy (towards the end) but I love it either way. 🤷🏽‍♀️😍 1y
Boooooks @AnotherMissBennet I actually can‘t wait to see how he thinks especially the fact that he can read the minds of Bella‘s friends in school, I‘m ready for some angsty Edward 1y

Boooooks @I.be.Stef well I finally read it! and I loved it so many details I‘d forgotten about because I‘ve watched the films so much might need to give the whole series a reread now 😂 13mo
I.be.Stef @Boooooks hey! You remembered 🥺I‘m glad you loved the book. Haha I felt the same. I‘m rereading the series as well. I‘m just happy to add another book from the series on my shelf. 😂Btw Happy New Year! I hope you have a great year ahead. 🥳♥️ 13mo

arlenefinnigan I've heard this is a great read, how are you finding it? 2y
Boooooks @arlenefinnigan I‘m enjoying it although it is quite repetitive with the drug binges and the same things happening again and again but it‘s interesting so far. I am hoping that he‘ll go into his relationship with Flea a bit more though because he barely talks about him in depth which seems odd considering that besides him he‘s the most present member of the band. 2y
arlenefinnigan @Boooooks yeah they always seemed really close. Interesting. 2y
BarbaraBB That was my one disappointment too, that he writes so little about their friendship. Let‘s see what Flea has to say about it in 2y

3 stars I enjoyed this one but although I haven‘t read many thrillers every time I read them I seem to have some unreachable plot twist standards that can never be met. Is it too much to ask, all I want is the most shocking plot twist ever that I can‘t see coming but that makes complete sense at the same time 😂

JamieArc Have you read Fingersmith by Sarah Waters? Not exactly a thriller, but it has some of the best plot twists I‘ve read, and I know other Littens would vouch for it too. 2y

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
