Reading on my lunch break and my kindle decides to update?! 🤦🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️
On book 4 of the series! Mercy‘s team finds a family of skulls with their heads and teeth bashed in. It‘s her job to figure out if they put the wrong man away 20 years ago, or if there‘s another killer on the loose. #readmykindle #mountTBR #kindleTBR #summerkindlereadathon
My June wrap up! Pretty good list since I was SO busy with work- but I guess reading for an hour every night while in bed really helped this along.
Lots of #YA this month. One #truecrime and lots of #readingchallenge books crossed off!
#DNF BEAUTIFUL RUINS, but not because I don‘t enjoy it- my mother in law wanted to read it while she‘s in town so she “stole” it for the next week.
Great little read!
Alvie is a magician from the United States circa 1904, and is chosen to be an apprentice to a highly skilled plastic magician. While this isn‘t a continuation of Mg Thane‘s story- the couple does make an appearance!
This book had all the qualities of an amazing series- adventure, mischief, misdirection, friendships, courage and love. I can‘t wait to see what Alvie does next!

3. Four 27 gal plastic tubs should do it...
4. Well, we tech are in our forever home but I do plan on moving into the cabin full time at some point.

10. Out of all your fictional killers, who is your favorite? Who inspired that character?
I haven‘t had a chance to read this yet- and I‘m not 100% sure it‘s YA (might be middle grade 🤔) but I‘ve heard amazing things. I own a copy just haven‘t had time to pick it up. I‘ll try and read it before school starts and give you feedback!
A teen and her mother have always been followed by a dark evil force that reeks havoc on their lives, causing them to move frequently. When Alice thinks they are finally safe, suddenly her eccentric grandmother dies and her mother goes missing. Is it the dark evil force, or just bad luck?
#darkfairytale #ya #mystery #thriller

7. No, well-preserved
12. Melody Datz

Can I please get a huge #listywelcomewagon HELLO to my dear friends daughter @that_space_squid !!!! She is a fellow bibliophile and wants to read new authors and different genres! Please give her an ADD and let‘s show her why it‘s so amazing to be a #litten! 📚
* anyone who has a teenage daughter on here that might not see this PLEASE pass on her handle*
THANKS GUYS! You all rock! 💕💕
Short stories. Brief moments in time that leave you wondering what if... about characters you met just pages before. I enjoyed all the stories, some sucked me in more than others, but in each one I felt the excitement and joy, loss and love.
Great to read all at once or as a pallet cleanser. I was introduced to authors I‘ve never read and want to read more of. 4.5 ⭐️

Today‘s news was especially hard because Bourdain changed the way I (& many others) travel the world. We taste everything local, experiment, and immerse ourselves in the cultures. This was his first book, extended form of an article for NYT, & really helped make him a household name. His humor shines throughout & I encourage anyone who hasn‘t read it yet to do so. His heart was pure gold & is the original chef rockstar.
1. Both - soft serve is the best 🍦👑 #duchessofswirl
2. Lemon! 🍋
3. Either as long as they‘re “Vegas style” and grilled
4. Both. I usually don‘t eat sandwiches unless it‘s summer 🤷🏼♀️
5. Neither - not a big 🍿🍿 fan
6. Both! Don‘t mind books that have been loved before. Brand new bathing suits only though!
@RealLifeReading thanks for posting!!
1. A tree with fallen branches. Only pic I took last weekend 🤦🏼♀️
2. No meet up yet- but I‘m currently in the #SanFran area and live in #Arizona (I know there are a few #phx ppl on here- let‘s plan something in Oct?!)
3. Goulash- but not the authentic German kind, the cheap I‘m broke and in college kind.
4. White and grey baseball tee
5. 50, but at least 6 others are books I own and haven‘t read yet.
1. I don‘t feel guilty about my reading choices because my goal is to read all the books- but the tagged series the one I get the more flak for.
2. Any old school remakes or movies “based” on books. 🤫
3. Baked goods. French fries. Chicken nuggets. Basically anything that is delicious for my soul but horrible for my body.
4. @fictionfangirl2 @ValkyrieStrong @UmJustSam @MAESTROvonBOOKSTEIN
A retelling of Anne of Green Gables based on colors. This cardboard book is great for kids, has bright colorful pages and will keep any active kiddo still for at least a minute. Great gift for any new babies, or even as a birthday present.
1. 🍦- otherwise my hubs would call me a blasphemer 😂
2. Both - We camp along the beaches of Central Cali but i 💕 jumping into a pool and reading in the sun.
3. 🍉 water/juice is my go to during a ☀️scorching work shift and 🍓 are my favorite snack!
4. Hah- well I travel for work and end up “living on the road”... so both?
5. Ebooks since I‘m in a camper for 4 months. But this year I brought 4 hardcovers with me🤫
Twinkle is an aspiring director and feels she‘s at the lowest level of her high schools social chain. She wants to be friends with the “silk feathered hats” who stole her best friend away from her. Through a series of mysterious emails and unplanned friendships, Twinkle was able to rediscover herself and what friendship truly means.
Great easy read! Finished it quickly because I couldn‘t seem to put it down. 4.5⭐️ #ya #readingchallenges #6/6
🚨 alert alert 🚨
City of Brass ebook is only $1.99 right now!!!!!! Amazing deal for an amazing book!
This is my most favorite book I‘ve read so far this year. And two more are in progress for the series.
1. Quickly- ✈️ , adventure time- 🚗 or 🚆 (you can bring your own 🍾 on a 🚆 and that makes it better/ it‘s a bucket list item to travel the USA via train)
2. Favorite: San Diego, but really anywhere that there‘s 🌲🌴🏄🏼♂️🚣🏼♀️🧗🏼♀️ 🧘🏼♀️and🏕.
3. Just landed in SD for Mother‘s Day, and going to South Africa in Sept for a ladies trip!
@GarthRanzz have a fantastic time in Denver! It‘s like foodie heaven!
1. The first bloom on my cactus this year #azliving
2. No book club or buddy read but lots of challenges.
3. Rose quartz hair dye 😬🤫
4. Steak, baked potato, salad
5. Birthday cake is an obsession- my go to homemade is white cake, with rainbow chip frosting center, white buttercream outside... 🤤
The past two weeks I‘ve been away from #litsy , and they were the saddest literary weeks of my life. Work and family drama consumed my time and I‘m finally getting to bills and mail, #bookmail galore.
Thank you @Laughterhp for my #botmswap book!
The tagged book was also in my #bookmail but didn‘t make the picture, it‘s sitting on my coffee table tempting me to be pick it up...
Oh #littens! It‘s good to be back!!
Snagged from @EpicReads via IG:
🧞♀️ Mismatched series covers
🧞♀️ Good adaptation
🧞♀️ Accidentally rip a page
🧞♀️ Never finish
🧞♀️ Lose a signed book - ahh! That‘s a tough one 😫
#wouldyourather #epicreads @EpicReads
1. Bookriot website
2. Goodreads, library thing gets an annual shelf
3. Yes! Litsy, book riot and goodreads recommend such gems, i spend allllll my monies!
4. Still basking in the ending of City of Brass, but grabbed tagged book off my #TBR bookshelf to start tomorrow!
Thanks @Chellebearss for creating one of tonight‘s games! I love 💕 learning about my Litsy community! #booknerdsunite
Gosh. This was amazing. The last 50 pages have blown my expectations out of the water. I can not wait until Nov. when the next book is released. The twists, turns, foreshadowing, regret... subtle sexual undertones. I‘m equally shocked by characters‘ developments and intrigued with others.
A perfectly magical adventure in 530 pages.
definitely 5 ⭐️
On my way to work and the tread blew on my tire. Now I‘m stuck at Discount without my book and a 2% battery on my phone... the next hour or so is going to be excruciating 😖😭 happy Monday everyone!
I‘m trying not to finish this book so quickly! I want to live in Nahida‘s world forever... and Dara 😍 Hopefully nothing too tragic happens in the second half of this book!
Either way I can‘t wait for the second to be released, anyone know that date?!
Go to HarperCollinsUS Instagram and preorder Karin Slaughter‘s new book out this Aug!
That is all.
One of my weekly favorites #friyayintro
1. Not signaling when driving 🤷🏼♀️ can‘t think of anything else right now 😂
2. Cake, pie, cookies, cheesecake...
3. Nemo , black and white long haired kitten named after Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland
4. Romance- like the ones with Fabio on the cover sold at the grocery store
5. Happy Friday #littens!!! @HaleyKamilla @Hayley @HappyBirdie @happygoluckycat @HamptonAKA
1. I cannot name just one... mainly because everyone id want to take is a serial thriller writer and would probably think of a million ways to kill me off... so I‘ll settle with someone recently deceased and bug her with a million questions...
2. Andrew McMahon 😍
3. Wine. Lots and lots of wine.
@GarthRanzz thanks for posting!!!
#bookhaul from yesterday!!
I hate when book stores put stickers on their covers THAT WONT COME OFF! Anyone know any special tricks? The “book club” sticker on the female persuasion won‘t peel off easily 😭
1. Roughly 100 unread and 50 read titles.
2. I have an older paper white, so my only “bling” is my HP text book inspired cover.
3. I use my kindle when I travel. I‘m on the road for months at a time with work and it‘s easier than bringing my entire library with me...
@Lova 💕 I love answering these random bookish questions! Keep them coming!
