I‘ve been playing catch-up after returning home from visiting family in New York… It was tons of fun, but you know how being away from home just throws you off of your routine, sigh. Anywho – FINALLY got around to opening the final book for the last month of #LMPBC and found a surprise inside! Thanks so much @BookaholicNatty !! You‘re so sweet & thoughtful! 🤗😘🤗😘. I hope everyone is having a great Friday!!

It was so nice spending time with family in NY. My little sister is finishing 5th grade and is a major reader, just like I was back in the day! 😆. I was so stoked to find out that she loves The Baby-sitters club series and has stacked up on the graphic novels as well as a few others from Raina! #proudreader

4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I really enjoyed this book from start to finish! Being able to process the story line from various perspectives was nice, because I got a chance to know each character well enough to feel really invested in how the story progressed for each of them. If you are a fan of adventure, self-discovery, bravery, love, and acceptance, then you will most likely enjoy this book. :) #arc

Dana1084 One of things that I enjoyed most is the way that Ronnie, Satya, Rebecca, Pival, Jake, and Bhim were portrayed. There were parts of each person that made me frustrated or angry, and parts that made me feel compassionate towards them, so in that way, they felt like real people that you might actually know. I 2y

2.5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was an interesting read. Based on the synopsis, I was predicting several plot twists along the way, and that never happened.

It took quite awhile for the story to develop, and then the conclusion seemed really rushed, and I was left with a lot of questions to bridge the gap.

It was very difficult to like Cassie or feel any sympathy towards her.

I had no idea what to expect from this book, and ended up having one of the most enjoyable reading experiences I‘ve ever had. I laughed out loud, yelled at some of the characters, and was moved to tears more than once – sometimes all within a chapter or two.

This is one of those books that has added so much humor and joy to my life that I wish I could experience it for the first time all over again! ☺️ #LMPBC #GroupI

This book was so much fun to read! The genre – to be honest, I think it‘s a mixture of several different genres – isn‘t one that I typically read, but I really enjoyed how Jasper made some really foreign concepts come to life. I loved having to use my imagination to understand some of the plot lines, and it was fun to try and guess which way things would go! Great pick, @BookaholicNatty !! I can see why you loved it so much! 😊 #LMPBC

Backman's writing is incredible. I wouldn‘t describe myself as a hockey fan, but this book drew me in and held me captive until the end. You learn so much about human nature, about yourself even, from how people can behave in such irrational and primal ways in the worst of times. I cannot wait for the sequel! #LitsyBuddyRead

I am SUCH a nervous flyer. I can‘t pinpoint what it is that scares me, but as much as I‘ve read about flying, I still can‘t stand the sensations or the sounds from the plane. Heading back home from a work trip, and while Beartown was thrilling enough to keep me preoccupied on the way down, a storm in Miami forced us to leave the runway and return to the gate, and now I keep reading the same sentence over and over 🙈. Any other folks hate flying???

As a child, I got in trouble for things like: growing organisms under my bed and trying to make synthetic blood (for transfusions without risk of disease transmission). Flavia is just the kind of girl who I would have wanted as a best friend while growing up! She‘s precocious, inquisitive, and positively fascinated by science. I am SO glad that I found this series. I will have to pace myself so that it doesn‘t come to an end too soon! 🔬💉

This was definitely a page-turner, and although I predicted some of the minor reveals, the major plot twists totally caught me by surprise. Some bits felt outlandish, but I liked it overall and will definitely read “Sometimes I Kill”, when it comes out!

This was a quick read, and I have to say that I found it to be entertaining at times. It did seem to drag on between the plot revelations (not twisty enough to be called twists). While reading it, I did not make any of the assumptions listed in the synopsis – my feelings about Vanessa, Nellie, and Richard were pretty spot on. Also, I found Vanessa‘s personality to be rather insipid and weak.

On What Grounds | Cleo Coyle
Pickpick

3/5⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book was nice, but had a lot of random details that could have been left out. It almost felt as though the author needed us to 'see' what the protagonist was seeing and the context within which she lived, but provided information that really could have been left to our imaginations, because it just came across as random. It served its purpose- to keep me company while I‘m completing my final knitting assignment! 😊

Dana1084 Also, having lived in NYC for 20 years, the book just didn't feel like it was set in lower Manhattan. Any business that‘s been there for so long is there because it's good and it's worth it...think a less intense version of the soup place on Seinfeld-no frills, just darn good soup 😊 2y
Bookishthoughts I'm happy you enjoyed this. I didn't really care to much for it.There was way to much random boring filler in here for me. Other then some great coffee advise, I had a hard to understanding why the author was talking so much!😁 I skipped a lot of chapters towards the end. 2y
Dana1084 @LazyDays I totally agree with the boring filler assessment. I actually fell asleep and missed a few chapters and still knew what was going on!! 😂😂 2y

Bookishthoughts Right! I skipped 4 chapters at the end! And had no problem with understanding😂😂 2y
rubyslippersreads I started this, but may bail. 2y
Dana1084 @rubyslippersreads I wouldn‘t blame you one bit! 2y

Once knitting class is over, I am heading straight home to read under a blanket for the rest of the afternoon! 📚💁🏾‍♀️

RadicalReader @Dana1084 never a better way to spend an evening. I spend many a nights under a heating blanket, propped up with a great book and drinking sweet tea or hot cocoa 2y
Dana1084 @RadicalReader That sounds just marvelous! 😊📚☕️ 2y

I am super excited to crack this book open! The reviews on Litsy haven‘t been that great, but it has high ratings on goodreads, so 🤞🏾. Plus, the protagonist and I have the same name 🤓.

Knitting class at the library was unexpectedly cancelled yesterday. So, I took to YouTube to learn some additional beginner stitches, and decided to move on from just practice swatches. Currently knitting my very first project- a dishcloth- while Agatha Raisin keeps me company! 😊

Samplergal It looks wonderful. When I was knitting, I made them for the homeless. Put them in a big ziplock with soap, water, toothpaste, toothbrush and some granola bars. This reminds me I should start to knit these again. 2y
Kaye Very pretty. What‘s the stitch called ? 2y
Dana1084 @Samplergal Thanks! That‘s a wonderful idea- today I saw a donation box in AC Moore for knitted items and was thinking that would be fun to do. 2y
