This book is seriously boring me. But apparently not Otis the #gingerbrat #catsoflitsy

JeannieReads Same! I read it for book club, and thought it was so boring, predictable, and formulaic that I struggled to get through it. There are some pretty crazy articles out there on the author, though. Those are a fun read. 5mo

Grimscythe @JeannieReads Right?! I keep falling asleep and losing interest. 5mo

MallenNC Great picture of Otis though! 5mo
kay89 Definitely recommend reading the New Yorker article about this author if you haven‘t gotten to it yet. The author is like a Highsmith character! 5mo
rachaich I skim read chunks. Book club choice 🙄😂 5mo

Aaaand I‘ve developed a headache. I made it to 19 hours. I really wanted to stay up and try to hit 24, but it‘s not gonna happen. Goodnight guys!

cariashley What app is that?? And well done! 👏 6mo

Yeeeeah this isn‘t happening. If the first 30 pages are pretty much exposition, I get bored. I might pass this one off.

I‘m about to pass the fifteen hour mark for #24B4Monday! I may not finish until two or three am Monday morning, but I don‘t count it as Monday until after I sleep!

Drew this one as my next read for #24B4Monday from my #popjargame Gonna shower first though. It‘s helping me keep sane. Otis the #gingerbrat is missing, and I‘m having a rough time. Please pray for his safe return. Or cast a spell for me, whatever it is that you do. 💜

DGRachel Oh no! I hope you find your baby soon. I‘d be losing my mind, too, if one of my dogs escaped. 6mo
Grimscythe @DGRachel I‘m convinced one of the neighbors has him in their house and he‘s just waiting for a chance to get out. He‘s such a lovable, doofy boy. 6mo

Just hit the 67% mark in this book, and I only use this tracker for the marathons. So I‘m almost to the 7hr mark!!! #24b4monday

Also I‘m really digging this book.

TheReadingMermaid Girl you're about to hit double digits!!! That's fantastic 👏🙌 6mo
Grimscythe @TheReadingMermaid I know! I‘m so excited! 6mo

Starting this one. I‘ve been on a bailing streak, with only one novel finished lately so here‘s to hoping I enjoy this one! #24B4Monday So glad I checked Litsy in time to catch this #readathon, ‘cause I‘m always missing them!

TheReadingMermaid Awe well you didn't miss this one and we are glad to have you sweetie. Have you heard of the new game we're playing? 6mo
Grimscythe @TheReadingMermaid I have not. I‘ve kinda mostly been out of the loop for a while now. 6mo

Hoping to get out of my reading slump. Please send good vibes. I‘m flaring up again and I just broke up with my toxic boyfriend.

Velvetfur Sorry to hear about the breakup but seeing as he was toxic then I'm happy for you, good for you being strong enough to leave xxx 7mo

So I‘m starting this one, which is apparently just a republish of an earlier work under a new title that got okay reviews. I‘m nervous. Also #gingerbrat

Started this for a review due the 18th. Not bad so far, but the passive voice is a little too strong. Also, 12% in and I have eight characters to keep track of? Like whaaaa.

Pruzy But those notes look amazing! 8mo

I‘m having issues putting this down tonight. I even skipped my nighttime meds so I could finish it. Whoops.

So I somehow missed that this weekend was a #24in48, which means I‘m getting a very late start. I don‘t plan to stay up the next 24 hours either, so I‘ll settle for a goal of 12 hours. That‘s better than nothing, right?

GypsyKat Absolutely! It‘s just fun to participate and a good excuse to get some reading in! 😊 9mo

My next read. This is actually a first printing of the book. :o Got it free from a Salvation Army that was liquidating.

RainyDayReading Really loving that cover. I don‘t know what it is about older horror novels, but I like their covers so much more than newer novels sometimes. 9mo
Gina That cover is so ala Stephen King! Late 70s? 9mo
Grimscythe @Gina Yes, 1978. 9mo
Gina Nice! I love playing the game of what yearish was this book released by the cover art. 9mo

My current reads.

I decided to come back, even though the issues making it difficult to use Litsy on iPhone X haven‘t been fixed. Mostly because I miss you all and I‘m terribly lonely on the bookish friend front.

Due to the lack of updates and failure to optimize for iPhone X, I will not be using Litsy for the foreseeable future. I can be followed on Twitter and instagram @agrimscythe.

BookwormAHN I just followed you on Instagram, but I'll miss you on Litsy 🐱 1y
