Hello! It has been too long Litsy-ers. I am starting up my blog and I thought the best way to restart was with tips on how to beat a reading slump. Everyone goes through it even us bookworms. Check it out and I hope you find a useful tip! #bookblog #bookblogger 📚 https://www.doodlesdistractions.com/blog/2019/6/10/how-to-beat-a-reading-slump

Sometimes you just need a self help book. Listening to it at work has been interesting. I am starting this one and so far realizing that most of the advice is for a younger audience and those trying to work in media...we will see how it pans out! #selfhelp #audiobook #advice

Why take a picture of an empty coffee mug you ask? Well I stayed up until 1 am compulsively reading this book and couldn‘t stop drinking the coffee long enough to take a picture. #bookwormproblems #insomnia #naptime

ErinC I loved this so much! 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I did the same thing, but without the coffee! 2y

🌟🌟🌟🌟| I loved this audiobook! I am in love with Emika. She is a smart, talented, POC woman leading a sci-fi book. PUBLISHERS MORE OF THIS PLEASE!!! The world felt completely realistic. The only downside is some of the characters were not fully flushed out and some of the plot twists were predictable. If you want to read my full review check out my blog

1. Working out, at work, driving in my car.
2. Library! (Libby to be exact) Audiobooks = 💰
3. Original. Too fast a pace and it can sound like chipmunks.
4. Right now I am tracking Nancy Wj she was great in Warcross.
5. Troublemaker by Leah Remini. She‘s reading and it sounds like you are hanging around gossiping with her!
#audiobookinquiry

Jess7 I listen to them while working out too sometimes! I forgot to list that one. I also really enjoyed #Troublemaker on audio. I liked her before, but after listening to her narrate her book, I liked her even more. She is entertaining and I‘m glad she is addressing the issues with Scientology, regardless of the consequences! 2y
Chelleo Thanks to you and @Jess7 I‘m stacking Troublemaker 2y
DoodlesDistractions I listened to it when on a 12 Hour road trip. It was the best! 2y
MidnightBookGirl I love listening to memoirs, and Troublemaker was great! 2y
Jess7 You will love her @Chelleo - she is great. I couldn‘t agree more that it definitely felt like I was listening to a friend talk. You will be tempted to respond bc it feels so natural. Kudos to Leah for doing such a great job with it! 2y

WOULD PEOPLE READ A BOOK BLOG THAT HAD A LOT OF BACKLIST ITEMS RATHER THAN JUST NEW BOOKS?

I am thinking about starting a blog to encourage myself to write about my opinions on books, tv etc. and would hopefully get me to read more this year. However I have a backlist a mile long and want to focus on reading those...would people want to read a blog that‘s not about new stuff?

Christine11 I just started one too ! I think backlist books are no problem, not everyone reads books as the come out - I would read it 😊 2y
megt Definitely! 2y
courtney88jones Definitely! I've wanted to do the same thing! And just as Christine11 said, not everyone reads books as they come out, so yes. Another reader here. 2y
EllaMc I almost only do backlist books. Amazingly, authors seem to like getting a bump a year or 2 after their the glory fades. I read late, so I review late... 2y

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 | Ok in light of all the dark stuff going on...I needed something sweet and light. This was it! 4 different love stories, basically cute one-shots and all the happy feels. My favorite has to be The Only One, about 2 people and how they met and knew each other three different times...very When Harry Met Sally!

Guys...I can‘t. I tried. I am a Democrat, a liberal feminist, and staunch opposer of Trump. I still feel like she was talking around certain things, hinting but not saying stuff. Then all this news with the DNC...I just need a break. I am angry, disappointed and can‘t handle reading this book right now.

maximoffs You‘re not alone, friend 2y
JSW I mean, you tried. I can‘t even try, despite being all you described. 2y
riversong153 I enjoyed this read but I understand it's not for everyone. 2y
DoodlesDistractions @JSW and @riversong153 I am not saying it‘s a bad book. It actually reads well I‘m just angry at her and her campaign right now that anything I read I will see it in a negative light. 2y

howjessreads I do not still like Wuthering Heights! I liked it as a teenager, did not enjoy it last year. 2y
DoodlesDistractions @jess.how I don't like the book because of the romance story (Heathcliff and Cathy are kind of the worst). I love instead Heathcliff as a villain. To me it's great to read and see him get his comeuppance. I also love the frame narrative. 2y
