If you see a novel about a love story in my hands, kindly knock it out so I can expand my horizons 🤦‍♀️

So disappointed :(

tournevis Considering it was published against her will, so was she. 10mo
c.m.reger I hate that I wasted my money on this book... haven‘t read it and probably never will.. 10mo

Looking for Alaska | Green, John

I consumed it. I checked it out yesterday and finished it today. I identified with every character. It had me drawn the entire time. I loved it so much.

Will be thinking about it forever!

manicdirteater Have you read any of his other books? 10mo
JanePratt @manicdirteater no I haven't! 10mo
manicdirteater @JanePratt The Fault In Our Stars and Turtles All The Way Down are just wonderful! If you liked that one, I think that you‘ll enjoy them. 10mo
JanePratt @manicdirteater I'll out it on my list! 10mo
manicdirteater @JanePratt Happy reading. 🙂 10mo

"But while you were looking out the window, you missed a chance to explore the equally interesting Buddhist belief and being present for every facet of your daily life, of being truly present. Be present in this class. And then, when it's over, be present out there."

Pricel101 Love this! 🙏 10mo
JanePratt @Pricel101 I did too! Nice reminder! 10mo

It's disgusting outside my house. 30s, mist, high wind speeds. Definitely went out in it to the library. I've always wanted to finish this series. I LOVED Divergent so much. Time for the second :)

Slajaunie I have read the series. I really loved it but hated the ending. Hope you like it more than I did. 😁 11mo
KathyWheeler I liked this series a lot! 11mo
KathyWheeler @Slajaunie Weirdly, although I know I‘m in the minority, I liked the ending. 11mo

JanePratt @KathyWheeler @Slajaunie I will let you know when I get there :) 11mo
Slajaunie @KathyWheeler Definitely the minority! I wish I had liked it though. I never read Four because of it. 11mo
Slajaunie 👍 11mo
KathyWheeler @Slajaunie I never read Four either, but I‘m not sure why. 11mo

Gone with the Wind | Margareth Mitchell

I finally did it. Forced myself to read it. At least I can say I did it.

If you want a story about a girl who goes through hell and then leaves you feeling empty at then end... This is your book 😂😂😂😂

OrangeMooseReads Scarlet really does stay pretty static 11mo
JanePratt @OrangeMooseReads right? I just expected "The greatest love story of all time" it definitely wasn't my favorite! 11mo
Naj I prefer the movie. It's less annoying. 11mo

I feel weird or incomplete when I don't finish a book. So I have been pushing through with this one!

Definitely not my favorite;however, I do see why people love it!

Crazeedi I say don't waste your time when there are so many books, so little time! Btw, this was one of my favorite books as a teenager😊😊 11mo
jillannjohn One of my all time favs! 11mo
JanePratt I just hate how much Scarlett is going through!!! 11mo

readinginthedark I've decided I'm never reading this one, but I know what you mean about pushing through! It took me five years to finally give up on Tess of the D'urbervilles. 😅 11mo
JanePratt @readinginthedark oh goodness! I LOVE Tess!!! 11mo
readinginthedark I just couldn't. 🙈 Hardy is a good writer, and I understand why his writing was so significant. But I hated all of the characters for some of the same reasons I hated most of the characters in Wuthering Heights--primarily how selfish they all were and their inabilities to stick to decisions. 11mo
JanePratt @readinginthedark I totally get that!! I want to read Wuthering Heights so bad 11mo
readinginthedark You should! If you loved Tess, I'd recommend it. Not that they're the same, but I think most of the same people like them both. 11mo

I need motivation. I'm so ready to bail on this book 😭

I thought I would love it. But I just don't! Motivate me!

LaurenReads I read it to say I read it, but I didn‘t enjoy it - sorry I can‘t help!! 11mo
c.m.reger Watch the movie instead? 🤷🏼‍♀️😂 11mo

JanePratt @c.m.reger I might 😂 11mo
CatLass007 Read it some years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. I much prefer the book to the movie. 11mo
c.m.reger @JanePratt Reward yourself with a book you‘ve been really wanting when you finish it! 11mo
JanePratt @c.m.reger @CatLass007 I think I'm going to listen to it. I've really wanted to read it for years! 11mo
CatLass007 Sounds like a good idea! 11mo
Lea I took me a lot of tries to get through it. I enjoyed it in the end but it was a push. 11mo
xicanti Honestly, I think it's fine to bail. It's a long, long book and there's no point in torturing yourself if you're still not into it after 129 pages. (Or is it 329?) (edited) 11mo
c.m.reger @JanePratt I think that‘s a great idea! 11mo
JanePratt @xicanti 129 😢 lol 11mo
mrsmarch You‘re allowed to not read a classic book, and even to bail on one! Bail away! (I‘m a bad influence.) 11mo
JanePratt @mrsmarch let's be best friends 😂 11mo
mrsmarch @JanePratt I‘m only doing exactly what your profile says, which is to knock any love story from out your hands so you can expand your horizons. It‘s fate. 11mo
JanePratt @mrsmarch lol true 11mo
mrsmarch @JanePratt I‘m also attempting to finally read Les Mis on Serial Reader bc my knowledge of classics is dismal. So, maybe I sometimes also give contradictory advice. But if you aren‘t feeling it, pfffft. 11mo
tracydishman17 That is my all time favorite book. 11mo

Making reading a priority this year. Time to crack open an epic saga of love and war. How haven't I read it yet?


CrowCAH Welcome to the Litsy family!!! 📚 11mo
JanePratt @CrowCAH thank you so much! I don't know how I just heard about it. I actually feel like a child in a candy store when I'm on this app! 11mo

JanePratt @carryliner52 thanks! It's very intimidating because of how long it is! 11mo
carolinereadsbooks @JanePratt It's worth every page, I promise 😁 11mo
JanePratt @carryliner52 I'm so excited. I looked at the reading of it on YouTube to get an idea of how long... 30+ hours. Omg. Lol 11mo
carolinereadsbooks @JanePratt Definitely a commitment, but also, 30 hours of awesome reading 😁 11mo
jenniferajanes Enjoy! 11mo
Crazeedi I loved this when I read it many years ago 11mo
Crazeedi Welcome to litsy! 11mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Welcome to Litsy! I just finished this last fall. Loved it for its frank depiction of such a difficult time. 11mo
JanePratt @jenniferajanes I'm planning to!! 11mo
JanePratt @Crazeedi thank you. I'm already loving the book 😍 11mo
JanePratt @BarbaraTheBibliophage I was so confused at first thinking Ashley was a girl and did not understand how this was so popular so long ago. Then I realized he was a boy and it made a lot more sense 😂 so far I'm loving it! 11mo
Crazeedi @JanePratt welcome to litsy!!! You'll love it! 11mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @JanePratt Haha. That puts a whole new spin on Scarlett and Ashley!! 🤣 11mo
kelli7990 I loved this book and I loved the movie too. There‘s a second book called Scarlett but it wasn‘t written by her. I liked it but I don‘t know if I thought it was as good now that I think about it. 11mo
Kaylamburson Can't wait to see what you think! I'd like to read more classics this year, too. Welcome to Litsy!! 11mo
JanePratt @Kaylamburson 2019 will be a year of classics for me! 11mo

A Brief History of Time | Stephen W. Hawking

A lot of this was over my head. I found myself back tracking a lot. Very informative though! I know know that I knew absolutely nothing about the universe and barely know anything now 😂

kelli7990 I haven‘t read this but it sounds interesting. 11mo
JanePratt It is VERY interesting. I have never read a book that used "however" so much in my life though. Lol 11mo
SqueakyChu I just tried reading this book, but I gave up when I realized I wasn‘t understanding anything. Now I‘m not sure whether to give this book away or to try it again at a later date. 11mo
JanePratt @SqueakyChu I had to stop and reread a lot. I am glad I rented it from the library instead of buying it though! 11mo

There is something about reading this book that reminds me how spectacular everything is beyond this planet.

How spectacular and how completely terrifying.

As humans I feel like we often forget how almost insignificant we truly are outside of Earth. Learning more with every page I read!

Soubhiville Hi there! Welcome to Litsy! I hope you‘ll love it. 11mo

1984 | George Orwell

It is terrifying how close to reality this book is. I was sucked into the story from the beginning. I got a little disinterested towards the end; however, I'd say it is a must read for everyone!

CoffeeNBooks Great book! 11mo

RaimeyGallant I'd like to revisit this one someday. And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. @LitsyWelcomeWagon 11mo
JanePratt @RaimeyGallant thank you so much! @Ehina check this out. @c.m.reger you too! 11mo
RaimeyGallant My pleasure. I told @Ehina about it a few minutes ago, I think. @c.m.reger tag me when you get your first post up, so I can signal the Litsy Welcome Wagon to visit your page. :) 11mo

BooknerdsLife @JanePratt so happy you've enjoyed it :) 11mo
kelli7990 I read this in high school during my senior year in English class. We all chose a book to do a book report on and I chose this one but I didn‘t like it even though the synopsis sounded interesting when I read it. 11mo
JanePratt @kelli7990 "Book Three" started losing me. However, my boyfriend's love for the book made me push through. I'm really happy I finished it! I love the first two "books"! 11mo
c.m.reger @JanePratt thank you! 11mo
