So because of the #netgalleyreadathon I only have 37 more books on my list!! Yay!!! (This is huge for me by the way, a lot of them I just needed to review though but I got some good reading done too). Yay!!!

Clwojick This was my struggle too! I had books that I had read, but just didn‘t get around to reviewing. I think I‘m going to continue that Readathon today though, because I only finished 8/30 reviews on Friday. And ended up so busy for the rest of the weekend. 🙃 2w
Johanna414 I really wanted (needed 🤦‍♀️) to do this readathon, and the weekend got away from me... 2w

The Red Daughter: A Novel | John Burnham Schwartz
post image
Pickpick

The Red Daughter is a novel about the daughter of Joseph Stalin. It is written as a collection of journal entries. I must say I was drawn in from the first page. I enjoyed reading a book from the perspective of Joseph Stalin's daughter and what life may have been like for her as well as her feelings. I highly recommend this book.

I would like to thank netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy for free. This is my honest opinion.

Ohh Neat on the website I can get the entire picture of the book!!! I love the website!! I wish they had these features for the app on android! (I assume they have them already for iphone??) Fun!!

Soubhiville No, the iPhone ap hasn‘t changed, the website is pretty different. 2w
Insightsintobooks @Soubhiville okay, that's good to know as I know the iphone app has more than the android. 2w

After the Party | Cressida Connolly
post image
Mehso-so

So, I wasn't really sure what to make of this book. It was interesting reading a book from the perspective of the Fascist party as I've never read a WWII book from that perspective before. However, I did find it a bit slow at times and disliked most of the characters. Overall, it was an okay read.

I would like to thank netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy free of charge. This is my honest and unbiased opinion of it.

I have a question for #netgalley users... the other day I was on netgalley and it said instead of "your shelf" it said "your nut stash". Now its back to normal. Did anyone else notice this or am I seeing things??

Samantha.1020 That was on April 1st - it was an April fools joke 😊 2mo
Birdsong28 Yes it's back to normal! It was just a April Fools 😂📚📖 2mo
Insightsintobooks @Samantha.1020 @Birdsong28 ohh, okay. I didn't even register it was April 1 lol. 2mo

I just realized there is a share button on posts is this new? I just wish there was an option to share the post within Litsy.

Booksnob Yep it‘s definitely new. Thanks for pointing it out to me. 2mo
julesG Not new, at least not for the Android version. The "arrow" has been here for a while. You can share to Litsy by using the "copy to cache" option and then posting the link. @Booksnob 2mo
RealBooks4ever @julesG I‘ve never been able to figure it out on my iPad. There is no “copy to cache” option. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2mo
