I feel like this is the most perfect cover choice for this book. Also, I relate to this woman. What an amazing read this was, and I can‘t believe I waited so long to meet Jane. ❤️

2018 has been slow so far when it comes to reading, but I finished this yesterday! Not my favorite, but a fun read. I‘m happy to have that first book under my belt.

LegallyBooked AGREED. My book club is currently reading this and none of us have been able to get in to this boo. So surprised after seeing so many great reviews. 2y
kyraleseberg I'm so glad I'm not the only one who felt "meh" about this book; I seriously thought it was just me with the unpopular opinion here! 2y

This book was an emotional journey to say the least. Hillary Clinton spoke directly to the little girl in my soul and made me believe I am great just the way I am. I hope someday when I have children more people will stand up for them the way Hillary stood up for me.

Fresh Complaint | Jeffrey Eugenides
post image
Pickpick

Eugenides is a notoriously slow writer, and these short stories are so perfectly crafted and contemplative that it‘s easy to imagine the author spending hours on single sentences. While not as engaging as his novels, I found this collection lovely and impeccably written. And it‘s definitely not a spooky book, but I‘m decorating for Halloween and couldn‘t resist some spooky flair in the photo!

I've had a difficult couple of weeks regarding my mental health. I have major depressive disorder, and sometimes I just can't get a handle on it. When I go through these bouts of depression, I usually have no desire to read. This time I am still struggling to read, but I've been browsing Litsy every day and it helped me so much. Thank you all for making this such an amazing community. ❤️

I loved this. I felt the end did drag on a teeny bit, but I am impressed by this novel. I'm always in awe of a writer who can be so smart and witty without being pretentious. The experimental style of this is bold and fun to read, all while being utterly devastating.

Into Thin Air | Jon Krakauer
post image

My awesome pen pal @Shvonne tagged me to post #fivebooks that have influenced my reading life. I tag @BarbaraBB

1. Into Thin Air was my first nonfiction obsession.
2. Harry Potter dominates my reading memory.
3. The Grapes of Wrath made me want to study English.
4. It is my most recent love. I wish I'd read it sooner.
5. Frank and Ernest was our favorite book to read with our dad. I got him a copy for his birthday a few years back!

TobeyTheScavengerMonk I almost asked what the title to your number 4 was, but then I figured IT out. Also, Frank and Ernest was a frequent checkout for me too! 2y
BarbaraBB Thank you for the tag! Nice challenge! I'll post my five favorites! 2y

A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara
post image
Mehso-so

Am I the only one who didn't think this was incredible? Yanagihara's writing is absolutely spectacular and intelligence seeps through every page, but I found this to be overwritten and at times contrived.

Leniverse Somehow I though this was a Murakami novel! How did that happen... (I haven't read it, so it's not about writing style, I was just somehow sure it was Murakami. 😕) 2y
RidgewayGirl As I read this, I started out adoring it, then liking it and I finished it rolling my eyes. 2y
