HAPPY PUB DAY TO STEPHEN KING'S NEW BOOK! 🥳🎉🎉🎉 This just arrived and I absolutely cannot wait to start reading it! Short stories are normally not my favorite form of literature, but King really excels at this form and I love so many of his short stories and novellas! Also, do you like the bracelets I made for the occasion? I TOTALLY love Stephen King a normal amount! 🤭

I was off today since I worked all last weekend! Luckily it was such a beautiful day I got to spend it reading at the park! 🌿📖

I was sitting on a bench and an old guy walked past and asked what I was reading. Without a word I flipped the book around and showed him the cover. 🐺🏳️‍🌈 He gave me a disappointed look and walked away. 🤣😂 Maybe he thought I was reading the bible?! 🤭💕

Did anyone else watch the awesome segment John Oliver did featuring libraries? 💕📚 It's excellent!

https://youtu.be/42xZB80sZaI?si=jPBQmIwZReRGth2g

HeyT It was great although my place of work got a shout out. 😥 1w
Leftcoastzen Superb presentation! Thanks for posting, never thought that some segments of our society would be so incredibly ignorant. 1w
TieDyeDude I love his show. An excellent piece. There is just so much blind allegiance to this dogma that has no basis in reality. My favorite are the people who preach at a library board about problems that don't even exist in their library; they were told to complain, and they took time out of their lives to do so without even checking to see if the books they were told to fear are even available near them? Pathetic. 1w

Hooked_on_books I‘m so sad that these segments are needed, but that was so well done. 7d
Branwen @HeyT NOOOO! 😱 Where do you work?! @Arvena Right?! 📚🩷 @Hooked_on_books I totally agree! 💕 @Leftcoastzen You're welcome! I'm glad you watched and enjoyed it! 🩷📚 @TieDyeDude Exactly! So many of these turds are just at board meetings regurgitating what they're being told to say without even reading the book in question! 😒 It's nauseating! 6d
HeyT I work at Huntington Beach. Now we're facing 'outsourcing' (aka privatization) of library management on top of the ridiculous book removal/appointed community book oversight committee. It's just too much. The community has been really supportive of the library though. It's just a city council majority making trouble. 5d
vivastory I really appreciate that Oliver did this but I can't watch this because my BP is fine at the moment. 😡 😡 4d
Branwen @HeyT Well, I'm really glad to hear that at least the community is very supportive! 💕📚 2d
Branwen @vivastory Totally understandable, my friend! It's such an enraging situation overall! 😒 2d

I enjoyed this book way too much for my own good! It was very short, only 200 pages or so. And it was like a very lyrically written cross between Silence of the Lambs, and the Blue Beard fairy tale. Very enjoyable! Very dark!

"Maybe she's thinking about the same thing James Joyce and his wife used to think about...minus all the farting, because James Joyce was a weird little dude."

Ha! I love this reference. If you are ever bored (or weirdly curious) go read the love letters James Joyce wrote to his wife, Nora! Be prepared for some weirdness though that you will not soon forget! ??

I've been totally blessed with another perfect day to read outside and spend most of the day at the park again! ☀️🌿

I'm totally obsessed with this book! The writing is really incredible, and you can definitely tell that the story was inspired by that Slenderman case from a few years ago! I was obsessed with that case, and followed it pretty closely, so this book is really hitting a sweet spot for me! Has anyone else read it yet?

The Morning Star | Karl Ove Knausgaard
post image

Has anyone else read Knausgaard? If so, what do you think of him? This is the first book I started of his, and almost immediately I fell completely head over heels in love with his writing! It's just so... beautiful! I don't even know how to describe it, but it's just absolutely mesmerizing! 💕📚

Unfortunately, there is something that happened within the first 20 pages that almost made me put the book aside 👇🏻

Branwen There is a kitten that dies and it's talked about for way too many pages to be completely honest. And if I didn't already love this book as much as I do, it might have been a deal breaker for me. I'm hoping that's going to be the one and only incident of something like that in this book? But even despite that, I'm honestly loving it so much! I really can't put into words how beautiful I find his writing! 💕📚 3w
vivastory I have read one of his books, years ago, vol. 1 of My Struggle. There is a particular section of that book that book that has stuck with me since I read it. 3w
batsy I thought this book was brilliant. It's my first and only by him. But sorry that I can't recall if there's more scenes specifically involving animals. I remember that kitten one being the hardest. But my memory is also terrible 😵‍💫🙈 3w
Branwen @vivastory I've heard that one is fantastic! Did you end up reading the whole series? Or just the first one? 3w
Branwen @batsy if the kitten scene was the worst, I think I'll be okay! I'm really just so enraptured by the writing I don't think I'll be able to put it down! He's just really drawn me in to the story and these characters! 🥰 3w

I may have gone a little overboard with my Book of the Month choices for April! I got five! Yikes! 😱 In my defense though, April is my birthday month so one of them was free! 🤭💕📚 What did everyone else pick this month? #botm

Kitta I think I got one you didn‘t! I went for the historical fiction. 2mo

Happy Easter to my Litsy family! 🩷💛🩷💛

I hope everyone is having a very nice day so far! I worked yesterday, so I'm grateful for the day off today to just be able to relax and read! Nick gave me a lovely basket filled with candy and most exciting of all - BOOKS! 🥰💕📚 I have been eyeing this series for a while, so I'm excited to start it! I think it's quite spicy, so YAY for that! 🤭
