Riveted_Reader_Melissa @jessinikkip I was thinking about you the other day and how sick you were last month, maybe you had it already. 🤞. But yes, I completely understand, there is no way to know since they aren‘t testing a lot....and I still haven‘t heard a clear answer on how long it survives on surfaces. If I seal up my book, then let it sit for a week, is it safe then, but then I guess you still have the mailman, sorters, etc handling it before it gets to you? 3y
Bookish_AF Whatever works for you guys is fine with me! I‘m in NY (upstate) and things are nuts here. Definitely vote for everyone staying safe! @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @jessinikkip @Dragonfairykats 3y
jessinikkip @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I dont know, the test came back positive for regular flu. They said flu B which is supposed to be the MILDEST, but that goes to show how sick I can get from even a mild little thing. We stocked up on food today. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @jessinikkip Good, stay home and take care. Things are nuts here too in rural PA @whippoorwill815 Crazy days! 3y
Dragonfairykats @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @whippoorwill815 @jessinikkip Y'all stay safe and healthy! Feel better @jessinikkip ! Drink lots of tea (tea helps everything). I'll hang on to these until things calm down. 💗 3y
Bookish_AF LMPBC friends, I changed my Litsy name, but it‘s still me (whippoorwill815)! I wanted to make sure to tell you guys specifically so I didn‘t cause too much confusion!! And I have safely received “The Warlock in Spite of Himself”. With my husband completely home from work and me only going in 2 days now, we are slow with stopping at the PO to check the mail! But it‘s here 😊 @Dragonfairykats @jessinikkip @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 3y
jessinikkip Good! I'm glad it did make it @Bookish_AF and dont worry about it, I think the last time I checked the mail was last Monday. I cant afford to catch this mess LOL 3y
Dragonfairykats Glad to hear y'all are still safe! I was thinking of you the other day. 🙂 @Bookish_AF @jessinikkip @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Thanks for letting us know @Bookish_AF although I will admit that when I read that new one, I made it much more badass...instead of your initials, my mind immediately when “Bookish As F###”. 😂 sorry, but I thought my cabin fever brain blip might give you a laugh in these crazy times. 3y
Bookish_AF @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Well you see, my initials didn‘t used to be AF and it is something that must be taken advantage of 😂😂😂 so perhaps it was intentional to use them in this way and the meaning is up for interpretation 😜 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Bookish_AF Glad you approve and weren‘t offended. LOL! But yes, if I were you I‘d fully take advantage of that! 3y
jessinikkip @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Bookish_AF WHAT??! YOU MEAN YOU DIDNT MEAN BOOKISH AS F....??!! OMG..... 🤦 3y
Bookish_AF @jessinikkip that is the beauty of now having the initials AF....I may have meant it both ways 😇😉 3y

#LMPBC has not gone out! With all the holiday stuff, my reading got stalled. Hopefully I'll be able to pick it up again today (and hide from cleanup lol) 😖

Bookish_AF I am stopping at the post office on the way home to mail mine out, but no rush !! Mail them out whenever you guys can! It was a little miraculous I finished mine on time-ish. 🤣 @Dragonfairykats @jessinikkip @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Dragonfairykats I‘m fine whenever, so whenever you get to it. 3y
Dragonfairykats @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I've had a family illness that has kept me from doing anything. I haven't absconded with the books! I'm supposed to be relieved by another family member today or tomorrow for a break, so maybe then. I did get the next book according to the person picking up our mail. @whippoorwill815 @jessinikkip 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I hope things get better soon and everyone starts feeling better. 3y
Dragonfairykats @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I was wondering if I could send you the third book (I haven't even been able to open it so I don't remember the title 😖) so I can finish this one. I'm really enjoying it, I'm just slow. I know it means I miss the third book, but I know I won't get to it anytime soon. I'm so sorry. 😔 Life just isn't cooperating. @whippoorwill815 @jessinikkip 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Dragonfairykats I don‘t know, what do you think @whippoorwill815 @jessinikkip? I‘m personally not in any rush, but I have no idea what life, reading plans, whatever your schedule is like for you two. I‘m willing to do whatever. 3y
jessinikkip @Dragonfairykats @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @whippoorwill815 I agree that Im not in any rush to finish and make it through. When it happens, it happens. I'm one of those as long as I eventually get mine back, it doesnt matter when to me! Id rather it take longer and us all get to enjoy them 3y
Bookish_AF Saw this on the way to work this morning and then.... work 🙄. But I agree with you all- no rush and no pressure !! I will read the books whenever they happen to arrive and it‘s all good 😃 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @jessinikkip (edited) 3y

Just started this, and I'm really enjoying it. I wasn't sure if I would, since Sci-Fi is a new genre for me. Yay for expanding horizons! 👏

Scochrane26 I don‘t like sci-fi much either, but I have found a couple I love. 3y
Dragonfairykats @Scochrane26 I almost didn't participate in the #LMPBC since my favorite genres were full. But I'm glad I did, especially with a genre that I read less than rarely! 🤗📚 3y
Scochrane26 @Dragonfairykats it‘s good to step out of our comfort zones sometimes. I‘ve read really good books in most genres. 3y
jessinikkip Agreed @Dragonfairykats I thought that I had missed it, and then my usual genres were full. But I gave it a try and Ive loved it so far. I should have done this sooner!! 3y

It's My Party: A Memoir | Jeannette Watson
post image

Happy birthday!!!!!! 🥳👏🥳🥳 What do you mean we're supposed to have ONE favorite Litten?!? 😱 I chose someone who helped me, even though she probably doesn't know it, @UwannaPublishme . I had to drop from #litsylove because I've been overwhelmed with life, & I still got a letter from her, even when she couldn't find my address on the lists (for now!) And told me it was ok if I needed a break & to write when I can. I will! Thank you my friend.

LibrarianRyan I couldn't choose just one either. It's hard. But I figured us 6 digit club members get hit lots because we are very visible. It's nice to see the some of the not so noticed Littens. Thank you for playing. 3y
UwannaPublishme Awww, I am so touched by your sweet words. ☺️❤️You are too kind to give me such an accolade, my dear friend. There are so many kindhearted and generous Littens in our #LitsyLove group. I can‘t count how many times these letters have arrived at a time I needed them most. Sending a big hug your way and hope life is calming down and you‘re doing better. Be well! 😘 3y

I had a real hard time with this book. couldn't stand the female MC and was iffy on the male MC. I found Katie to be obnoxious, vicious, disrespectful, & just downright unlikable. While some of her response could be passed as her PTSD, it was over the top. I also felt that not recognizing the other also had PTSD when each had such visible & strong episodes in front of the other was implausible. 2 stars because it was a great & original concept.⬇️

Favorite read for 2019 is between the tagged book & "Any Witch Way You Can (Wicked Witches of the Midwest Book 1)" by Amanda M. Lee.

Litsy has made my move into my parents' house so much easier. It's eliminated the negativity of other social media sites from my life & I can't even explain how much #litsylove & #jb & the welcoming people mean.

I'm reading a book that was given to me by Story Origin for an honest review. I need some suggestions. I hate the main character and find that the 2 main characters missed such an obvious detail about each other implausible. The book has a 4.5 rating on Amazon from I think 65 reviewers. So, either I'm missing something or this just isn't the book for me. I'm about 50% in. How do I write a review that doesn't trash the book but shows how I feel?

LibrarianRyan Be honest. And do t worry about the Amazon reviews. Say why you didn‘t like it. Keep it to the book and contents within. Not about the author or publisher and you should be good. Bad reviews are just as important as good ones. 3y
Dragonfairykats @LibrarianRyan Thank you. I take a long time with my reviews but I didn't want it to be unhelpful, or upsetting to be honest. 3y
LibrarianRyan @Dragonfairykats I get that. Honesty is always the best policy. And like I said, keep it about the book not the author or publisher and it should be fine. Also DO NOT tag the author. That is probably a duh but just in case. 3y

Welcome to the Jungle | Jim Butcher, Ardian Syaf
post image
Pickpick

comic books heavily influenced the type of books he would write. "Welcome to the Jungle" is the first graphic novel set in the world of the Dresden Files, and takes place directly before "Storm Front". We are introduced to Harry Dresden, Chicago's first, and only, wizard PI, as well as Lt. Murphy, Sgt. Carmichael & Bob. The sarcasm & wit is hilarious. This was my 1st graphic novel and the illustrations were stunning. Definitely a pick.

Dragonfairykats Ok, so the first word should be capitalized and Jim Butcher replaces "he" in the 1st sentence. I was counting letters... 3y

To Each His Own | River Ames
post image
Pickpick


I stopped reading romance novels a long time ago. Somehow, as I got older, the sex scenes became superfluous, something that simply took away from the story & my enjoyment. To Each His Own is my first clean romance to see if I still enjoy the genre, & if I might like sweet, clean reads. I have to say, I'm glad I chose it. River Ames knocked it out of the park, convincing me that a clean read can be just as steamy & fulfilling as any other romance

Laughterhp If you want another clean romance, this book was good but I like my romance with the sexy bits 😊 3y

I wasn't as impressed with this addition to the series. The pacing was too fast, there was little character development, & Patricia spent quite a bit of time thinking about the Captain. Here is my full review: https://tinyurl.com/yyd38gsx I do still recommend the series, the characters are entertaining & the setting is a place into which you can escape.

I received this as an ARC, and all opinions are my own.

BUT I'm feeling petulant and want to read something fun & mindless. 😖🙄 I'd write my notes, but parents are sleeping so not enough light. Rant over. 💖

This story was adorable, about a little girl and her bearded bear friend. As they travel they meet more bearded animals that help them and show them new things. This was such a cute way to teach children that someone who is different is not weird. If you get to know them, you may have wonderful adventures with a new friend.

Finally got to start on my replies today, but only got through 2.5 because of the shaking in my hands. 😖🙄 They'd better behave tomorrow, I have 19 more to do! 💖

In book 2 of the series, Agent Victoria Heslin is called in to consult on a missing person's case in Charlotte by her boss. In the course of her investigation, she comes across a large sex trafficking ring, the 2nd theme which runs parallel with the missing person. I really enjoyed this book & can't wait for the next one! I received this as an ARC.

So, my dad came in holding a bunch of envelopes from the mail, laughing. He's just understanding why I need so much stationary!
Thank you all, I was so excited to open my letters!

You do have to sign up for the author's website, but those are easy to unsubscribe. I've found some really good books doing this.

🐈 I hate how my library is sorted. As it's ebooks, it makes it difficult and twice as long to figure out what genre the book should go in (over 1000 books don't help). I've gotten them to top level genres, but it's still too chaotic for me.

🐈 I just moved 18 months ago to live with my parents, and I'm still trying to get acclimated. Never easy moving back as an adult, even with a valid reason.

TheSpineView Kudos to you for trying to organize your ebooks! Thanks for playing! 😊 3y

Again Patricia Fisher drew me in to a delightful, entertaining story. An on the run gangster & his reluctant bride-to-be join the passengers on the Aurelia, leading to the gangsters he's running from to infiltrate the cruise liner. The bride-to-be is kidnapped, causing hilarious trouble as each group of mobsters try to find her. Patricia leads the gangsters on a merry chase while trying to come up with a plan to find out who kidnapped Cari & why.
