Holy moly it‘s been a while since I‘ve used this. I‘ve been so swept up with reading for classes that I barely had any time to read for myself! I‘m going to begin to try to use this more, as I have been doing more reading what with the semester being over and going to BookCon and collecting even more books! Also, I‘m trying to get back into WordPress and the book blogging scene. Comment yours if you have one below and I will follow you!

Was just listening to some music when this came on. Been having a kind of crappy day but this song just made me feel better. It got me in a better mood to get my ass in gear. I‘m gonna try and pick up Vengeful again to get through some of it. I‘m enjoying it a lot, but school has been getting in the way. Hoping to get through at least a small chunk of it tonight.

LiteraryinLititz Hope your day gets better. You got this! 14mo

This is the first book I have read that wasn‘t assigned for school since August. I devoured it in exactly a day. I absolutely adore both of these writers and the fact that they collaborated on a story, it was clear this was gonna be a hit for me. The characters were amazing, the writing was flawless, and their story was absolutely adorable. Plus, some of the quotes hit a little too close to home. I highly recommend this book.

Lovesbooks87 It was so good. I read it in a day as well! 14mo

This was an anticipated read for me ever since last year. I'm so mad I waited so long to read it, but holy crap was it worth the wait! I was blown away with this novel and I can't wait till the sequel. This book is now in my top 10 favorites of all time. I highly recommend you pick this one up.

This book was so cute! I loved this one. There were a few plot holes, but this was a total four star read. I can't wait to read more by Murphy in the future.

Told y'all in my earlier post I was craving some doughnuts☺️🍩 attempting to get a good chunk of this book done tonight, so I can start a new book fresh on vacation Thursday! What are you currently reading/snacking on?

RadicalReader @JessLeigh love donuts they‘re delightfully delicious have some from Krispy Kreme and they‘re absolutely heavenly when reheated in the microwave while curled up with a suspense novel currently reading 1y

I wish there was an option between pick and so-so, for this wasn't a bad issue in the series, it just wasn't my favorite one. Still can't wait to see what comes up in issue 9!!

Honestly, I haven't been very active on here, mostly due to the fact that I haven't been reading. Life has been hectic. I won concert tickets last Tuesday to see Three Days Grace and then Saturday I was at Warped Tour, where I met some of my favorite bands (one pictured above). Now that I have a bit of down time, I hope to get some more reading done! Hope you lovely Littens have been having a good week☺️

I really wanted to like this one, but it just wasn't the case. The writing was bad, the characters had no sense of differentiation, even though the chapters switched from character point of views. It just wasn't the book for me.

RadicalReader @JessLeigh completely utterly understandable and relatable your bio 1y

I once read a poem my friend wrote and it changed my perspective on such a simple question. When you ask someone what their favorite color is, it may not seem like such an intimate question, but it's an easy way to get to know a person and it shows them that you care. So now, I pose the same question to you all, what is your favorite color?

ofclumsywords My favorite color is white!! Whats yours @JessLeigh? 1y

HufflepuffGirl90 The only one I‘ve read is Misery by Stephen King. I enjoyed it, it‘s not as dark as some of his, but very unique in the delivery 😊 what a great haul, a lot of those have been on my TBR, too 💜📚 1y

1) Preferably, yes. Most of the time at least.
2) Anytime of day☺️
3) Usually, but sometimes I have those days once in a while where I can power through a book, no matter what's going on in the background.

Went to the library and just couldn't help myself! I'm very excited to get to all of these! Plus, Black Dove White Raven was on the cart of books they were selling so I picked it up for 50 cents! It was such a good deal😄

JessLeigh @nikirtehsuxlol it's a book from the library that is due seven days after you take it out! Usually it's because the book is fairly popular, so they want it back on shelves asap 1y

The messages within these poems truly conveyed love and I could feel the emotion written within them. However, I read this on my phone through overdrive and I think that truly prevented me from getting the bet experience out of this collection.

I haven't been able to get much reading done, sadly, as I have been picking up a lot of shifts at work and life has been getting the better of me. I'm glad I woke up earlier than I anticipated so I can delve back into this, and perhaps even finish it, before I have to head off to work today.

I've been looking forward to All Rights Reserved for what seems like forever! However, I'm not sure if this is the kind of book I'm looking for at the moment. Have any of you guys read either All Rights Reserved or the two others I'm considering, Night or Every Heart a Doorway?? If you have, please let me know in the comments what you thought! Thank you all! Have a goodnight❤️

tammysue I read Night.. it was a powerful and highly emotional book for me. ❤️ 1y

I am pleasantly surprised with this one. After reading Everything, Everything and not liking it in the slightest, I was skeptical about picking it up. However, I'm throughly glad that I did because this one was so much better! I loved the characters and how the book flipped between points of view. The story line was so intriguing, it left me craving more. Through this book, I definitely learned to give authors a second chance

KateFulfordAuthor May I tempt you with another debut? Mine! See the link in my bio for lots of information to help you decide. Thanks, Kate 1y
