Gonna enjoy this next 24 hours seeing all I can eat is soft cold food to help with the swelling of having 12 teeth pulled. I am also gonna try and read Talon to distract me from the pain. I am on pain medication but 4 of my teeth give my oral surgeon a fight so he warned me I might be in some pain even with the strong pain medications he gave me.

AsYouWish Oh no!!! I hope you feel better soon!!! 1w

Pickpick

Elizabeth‘s life isn‘t really awesome lately, after her mother passed away, she couldn‘t attend the school she wanted or keep her ballet lessons (her step-sisters college fees) and to make things worse, her best friend moved to California.
When she got her after-school job in the New York Circulating Material repository, she was expecting books, but, this was no ordinary library. The place was huge, with its stacks.

Beautiful Bad is a book that sucks you in immediately and the kind of book that readers of psychological thrillers will devour. All the characters in this book have seen some horrific stuff, Maddie- teaching English overseas and a travel writer; Jo-a relief worker; and Ian- a soldier/bodyguard working in the most dangerous locations around the world. Fast forward to present day, with Maddie and Ian married and (continued in the comments)

Endowarrior21 now living in U.S. - things are far from picturesque and a murder occurs to one of the three. Told from multiple points of views and fluctuating from past and present- Beautiful Bad is definitely a page turner. Highly recommended to fans of mystery and psychological thrillers. 1mo

I want to say thank you so much @MolliesaurusRex for my #MysteryMessageSwap package I love everything and you should atleast read City of Bones By Cassandra Clare I love all her books. And I never read the other two books or seen the movie or show. And I love the fact you printed all those infos and interviews. The kitty loves her toy and the candle smells amazing and can‘t wait to try the tea. And did you make the bookmarks? I love them

MolliesaurusRex I did make the bookmarks! The Handmaid‘s Tale bookmarks were just printed & cut out, but the rest were colored with lots of love. I‘ve been meaning to read City of Bones since forever; seeing how good this one looks might just be my motivation to do it! I‘m glad you (& kitty) like everything!😊😊😊 1mo

The Fortune Teller: A Novel | Gwendolyn Womack

Okay have a question for the ones that went to #Bookcon I know it‘s not free to get in but can you get free books or do you have to pay for those too. I am thinking of going next year but I have to really budget if the books I want are not free.

wanderinglynn If I remember @MrBook & @TheSpineView were 2 who went to Bookcon. Maybe they can help answer your question? #inquiringmindswanttoknow 2mo
GripLitGrl Publishers do offer free ARC's & Galleys this was my second year attending. I'm gonna post my books later after work. The ARC's for required standing in line 1 1/2 to get the book a lot of the lines closed down before the time the giveaway was scheduled to be offered which was unfortunate i missed a lot of books i really wanted. Waiting in lines had me miss some speakers also. But it's a good time i defiantly recommend going to experience it. 2mo
LibrarianRyan For Book Con it is a little of both. Some signing lines require you purchase the book, some give out free ARCs, it just depends. There are normally long lines for free arcs, and they are usually limited. Some you have to sign up for when you register (ticketed signings), and some you get a ticket 30 minutes before it starts, and others are just massively long lines. This isn't a bad thing, is lines are a perfect place to sit. (on the floor). 2mo

TheSpineView @LibrarianRyan did an excellent job of describing how it worked. The only thing I will add is, if there is a free ARC that you must have, get in line early. Most books I saw for sale were at a discount if you decide you need it bad enough to buy. 2mo
MrBook @GripLitGrl , @LibrarianRyan , and @TheSpineView , provided excellent explanations 😁! 2mo
MrBook So, BookExpo has a ton of free books, BookCon has a few. If you want a free book, get a ticket ahead of BC or keep an eye out for tickets for them, which are called “drops”. As long as you have a ticket, you‘ll be able to snag a free book (they give out as many tickets as they have copies), so you don‘t necessarily have to wait in line the whole time. I usually would get in line when it was almost done, freeing me up for other things. 2mo
MrBook With the big publishers, they usually offer hardcovers for something like $10 and paperbacks for $5. Or there‘s a 50-75% discount. The discount gets bigger as the last day gets closer to ending because they don‘t want to haul all that heavy stuff back to the office if they can help it. 2mo
MrBook Small publishers and independently-published authors tend to ask full price. There‘s also all the merchandise booths, which have some really awesome goodies. They usually offer a 25-50% discount as well. 2mo
MrBook When I could afford it for past conventions (not just BookCon but others too), I would take $200 in cash with me. Cash is king. Not everyone accepts card. 2mo
LibrarianRyan I will also add that not every publisher you see Lutyens posting from expo will be at con. A lot of foreign language and publishers that work more with libraries will pack up and not stay for con. For example Scholastic. I don‘t know if they were at come this year, but the two expos I went to, scholastic packed up and did not attend con. 2mo

So I am now looking to get baby/children books that have girl power in them. Meaning books about girls that are independent and smart. So please give me some I should get plus other baby/children books you think I should buy.

A very interesting novel about the abbey on Mount Saint Michel. The writing is a fusion of history, mixed with fictional stories of a man who came to the abbey after the death of his lover and the story of modern day writer and her daughter as she tries to write this book. I enjoyed the entanglement of different times and people and places. A beautiful book to read.

Caraval | Stephanie Garber
Bailedbailed

I tried I really did but I just could not stand Scarlet and it takes a lot for me to DNF a book. I might try reading the book to see if I like it but not yet.

TrishB Wasn‘t for me either. 2mo
JenFowler I was disappointed in the main characters too. 2mo
bullbunny I didn't like the abusive father 2mo
Linear The first time I read this I felt this way. Scarlett really is annoying. However, after reading The Night Circus I started to look at caraval more from a different point of view. I paid more attention to the shops and overall area vs Scarlet and her idiocy. Like the man with the tattoos who tells your future was more interesting now I was looking at him and worried less about Scarlets thoughts of him. 3w

Caraval | Stephanie Garber

So I started the Audiobook of Caraval today and so far it‘s okay but I am starting to get annoyed with Scarlet. I am finding her to be very whiny and I don‘t know if I am going to continue. Did anyone find the book version better? I am on Chapter 11 of the Audiobook.

LibrarianRyan By the end I liked the book but I didn‘t drop dead love it. It took me a while to finish. And I completely agree about Scarlet. 2mo
julesG Scarlet's whining was the reason I DNFed the audiobook. 2mo
Reggie This book was hoooooorrrribleeee. I hated myself for a couple of days for even finishing it. 2mo

Linear @Reggie lmfao, so dramatic. 3w
Linear I'm rereading this now, the first time I was focused on Scarlett and her angst. This time I'm paying attention to the shops and caraval people. And I can now see the connection to The Night Circus better. My favorite character at this point is the man covered in tattoos with the heart and lock at his mouth. It makes me want to find a collage and ask people what the first thing they see is. 3w
Endowarrior21 I am going to try reading it seeing I just could not stand the way Scarlet was being read. I love The Night Circus. 3w

Pedophilia, sexual abuse, drug abuse, murder

This was a raw, emotional, and incredibly dark book. I am grateful that it did not sensationalize any of the abuse that went on before and during the events of this book. Though it's definitely present, it happens off of the page. It focuses on the toll it took on the victims rather than the acts themselves. If you can handle the subject matter.I'd highly recommend it!

I am on Day 6 of the strike at my company and all I have to say is you really learn which customers care and which don‘t and it‘s pretty sad. And looks like we could be out for awhile. Only good thing is I am getting a tan lol. But truly I rather be working.

QueenJen Hugs! 3mo
Endowarrior21 @QueenJen thank you 3mo
RamsFan1963 @Endowarrior21 Sadly it's been my experience that customers only care about you when you're of use to them. When that usefulness ends, so does their awareness of you or your situation. 3mo
Endowarrior21 @RamsFan1963 it is sad but I can say 90% of my regular customers have been there for support not to cross. The customers we have seen cross are ones we think come from different stop and shops in the area. Because we don‘t recognize them. 3mo
