I finally finished this after starting it a year ago (no idea why I stopped reading it 🤷‍♀️), and it might be my favorite in the series! The ending is incredible. Pictured is Addison, one of my favorite characters ♥️

ljuliel I love the odd pictures he uses in his books ! That one is so cute. 😊 3d
CBee @ljuliel me too! They add so much to the books. 👍 3d

CBee @ShyBookOwl ha! There are a handful that I bailed on but plan to come back to; I don‘t know what happened with this one as I love the series 🤷‍♀️😂 3d
ShyBookOwl @CBee lol it happens. Sometimes the timing is just off 3d
CBee @ShyBookOwl true. And I am the worst mood reader sometimes 😂 3d
ShyBookOwl @CBee oh me too. Especially with audiobooks! 3d
CBee @ShyBookOwl I don‘t do audiobooks often, but I would probably be the same way! It isn‘t the book so much as the narrator, etc. You don‘t want to listen to hours of Elmo narrating War and Peace (okay, that‘s an extreme example but I hope it made you laugh) 😂😂 3d
ShyBookOwl @CBee Haha it did! And I know just what you mean! 3d
CBee @ShyBookOwl glad it made you laugh 😂 After I wrote it, of course I started hearing Elmo‘s voice in my head 😂 3d
ShyBookOwl @CBee of course lol 3d

Nothing to See Here | Kevin Wilson

So, the “fire children” are really not the main focus of this book, IMO. To me, it‘s about all of the people and things you actually SEE when you pay attention.
And, it‘s about those who feel forgotten, who say “nothing to see here,” when all they want most in the world is for someone to notice (and cherish) them.
Loved this book ♥️

Where are my Ursula Le Guin fans? My husband SHOCKED me today (I am so excited) by requesting BOOKS for Christmas. He hasn't been as much of a reader (burnout from a long data analytics career, etc) these last few years. So, you can imagine how ecstatic I am :) He requested The Earthsea Trilogy by Le Guin. Now, there are six books in the Earthsea cycle, correct? I wonder if I should start with..... (rest in comments)

CBee just the first three books, or get him the whole set of six? And, would y'all recommend one volume of all the books or separate books for each story?
Thanks in advance! Did I mention how STOKED I AM????

So..... I started to figure this one out (which usually never happens) but it was so compulsively readable that I flew through the last half. Easily one of the best thrillers I‘ve read! And of course my favorite word...... TWISTY TWISTY 😂😂😂😂

Angie Kim is an incredible writer - this one was a bit of a slow burn, but super compelling. She writes awesome courtroom scenes! I also appreciate her bringing awareness to the struggles that parents of autistic and other special needs kids face every day.
Recommend this highly!

Postmortem | Patricia Cornwell

Discussion post from @ljuliel 😁♥️
“Can you name an author that‘s an immediate purchase when they release a new book, plus you‘ve read every other book they‘ve written already?”
I devoured every single book in the Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell (years ago). These books are what got me so hooked on the mystery/thriller genre, and the emphasis on forensic science is KILLER (no pun intended 😂).
#KeepLitsyActive

ljuliel Very good, Cydney. It‘s always nice when you find one book you like a lot, then find out there are several others with the same characters ! 1mo

So, I‘m not a Twitter person, but I decided to revamp my account and only follow authors I love. Look who replied to my tweet! The ever amazing Rainbow Rowell!! I‘m dying ❤️♥️❤️♥️

MelissaSue81 She is so great on Twitter!! That‘s awesome that she replied to you. I didn‘t love WS though. 😕 1mo
CBee @MelissaSue81 no worries, I know everyone didn‘t love it like I did. I think I can see why some people would really love it, and some wouldn‘t - it‘s rather different from the first! 1mo
CBee @MelissaSue81 and I think someone must‘ve written a really negative comment or something? Which is why she tweeted about it in the first place. But, I‘m not 100% sure 🤷‍♀️ 1mo
MelissaSue81 @CBee - I think it was just general feedback, lol. To be fair, I didn‘t really love Carry On either.. I LOVE her other books but the vampire/magician genre is not my thing. I got really confused at the end of Wayward son though, and then it just sort ended!! 1mo
CBee @MelissaSue81 maybe the 3rd book will help resolve the confusion? 😁 1mo

Let me try to explain to you just how much I already miss this world..... well, I don‘t think I can 😂
This is the 2nd book in the series, and I loved it more than the 1st. Still don‘t feel like it‘s a middle grade series - despite the main characters‘ ages, it‘s super adult-y with plenty of scary situations and circumstances.
There‘s a 3rd one coming out too 😁😁😁

After the Flood | Kassandra Montag

How can I put into words what a beautiful book this is? It‘s about wrenching loss, betrayal, and utter heartbreak. But, it‘s also about forgiveness, redemption, fragile trust, and LOVE. The love that Myra has for her daughters, and the love she eventually shows herself.
On another note - I would most likely not survive an apocalyptic event. So there‘s that. 😳😳
I highly recommend this one ♥️

AmyG I so agree. I loved this book. And yes....this event of flooding of the planet. I felt transported and understood how you do what you need to do to survive. I couldn‘t begin to imagine how I‘d fare. Lovely book cover. (edited) 2mo
CBee @AmyG I found a pic of this cover on Google - it‘s my favorite! And yes - transported is the perfect word. When I read books like this, despite them being a favorite genre, I can‘t help but wonder - could this actually happen? In this case, I think it could 😳 2mo
AmyG Yes, I too believe this could happen as the climate warms. To me this was all very real. 2mo
CBee @AmyG it‘s scary to think about 🙁 2mo

madamereadsalot1 I do adore these books! Got my daughter turned onto them too and we both ship Simon and Baz. ♥️😆 I want the third one like yesterday. Lol! But two years is bound to give us good quality! 2mo
CBee @madamereadsalot1 I read the last page and was like YES! A 3rd is coming! But it can‘t be soon enough. Simon and Baz..... sigh 😍 2mo
madamereadsalot1 @CBee same! Can't wait to see what's going on at their old school and what kind of mischief(and romance) they'll fall into next time...🥰 2mo
CBee @madamereadsalot1 agreed! Hoping for a certain two characters to get together! Penelope and Shep! (edited) 2mo
madamereadsalot1 @CBee I sure hope so! It seems a bit obvious, but Rowell could throw a curve ball and not include that story arc. Fingers crossed they do though! I really hope Shep sticks around no matter what! And I hope Simon and Baz work past their issues and become a real REAL couple next book! 2mo
CBee @madamereadsalot1 same! I‘m very interested to hear more about how he was cursed. And if Penny can fix it! 2mo
madamereadsalot1 @CBee I'm also curious about Simon and his wings/tail. It was said in the book, because he has no magic they should have gone away. But it was also said he was a baby dragon. Sooooo does he still have his magic? Is he an animagus? What is going on!? 2mo
CBee @madamereadsalot1 I think he still has his magic, somehow. At one point, I did think he was about to go full dragon. I wonder if there was some sort of transfer type thing back in Carry On when he and Baz confronted the dragon...... 🤔 So many questions!!! 2mo
madamereadsalot1 @CBee I think he's still magical too. Just blocked up. Something in his brain, his confidence or whatever, maybe? I'm excited to learn more about him! 2mo
CBee @madamereadsalot1 I‘m sorry I‘ve just seen this! I really enjoyed our conversation - we should‘ve done a buddy read! Maybe for the next one ♥️😁 2mo

Here‘s the thing: anytime you have people in power, whether government is involved or not, there will be conflict. One group wants to maintain order and the “old ways.” The other wants to change those ways, sometimes quite drastically. I don‘t think it can be avoided - there will always be someone who wants more. Power can be dangerous.
I loved this book. Thunderhead on request 👍

I expected something entirely different when I started reading this one. What I got was a beautiful book about love, loss, new beginnings, and the importance of forgiveness. Having gone through some rough patches lately, I think I needed to read this. Forgiveness, and letting go of the past, are both major struggles for me 🤷‍♀️
It also has a super happy ending, so there‘s that ♥️😊

I admit the cover is what got me at first - it‘s very Dali-esque. But, the book felt disjointed, and the ending was very abrupt with a boatload of unanswered questions. Kudos for the abundance of girl power and the portrayal of strong, fierce women. I finished it, but barely. 🤷‍♀️
