Found myself with unexpected alone time at a bachelorette party in the Catskills, so I snuck in some reading. Really into this one so far.

Reviewsbylola My friend told me earlier today that this was great so I need to get to it soon! 1y

Finished this in our cute little Air BnB in Rome! Now, the question is: will I be able to sleep tonight after reading this creepy story? Answer: probably yes, because of jet lag. 😂

It was a nice surprise to come home to this #bookmail (that I won here on Litsy)! Thanks @WilliamMorrowBooks and @Tav ! I can‘t wait to join in on the #BeatrizBinge after all the rave review I‘ve seen all over the internet recently. This will be my first foray into Willams‘ work.

The signature cocktail at Jessica Knoll‘s book launch for The Favorite Sister was called “The Favorite Sipper” and it was DELICIOUS. Can‘t wait to dig into this book!

mrozzz Yay you made it! Was it lovely?? 2y
JessieReadsInBK @mrozzz It was! They had a bar set up and some snacks and her editor interviewed her, which was nice because she knew more about the book than your average moderator. Hope you enjoyed the Russo event! 2y

Have you ever finished a book in a public location and felt like crying because it was over? That was me this morning in the nail salon after finishing the last book in Elena Ferrante‘s Neapolitan Series. I maintained my composure but boy, am I sad.

This morning I biked 41 miles in the 5 Boro Bike Tour in NYC because I sort of had to for work (see some snaps on Dr. Oz‘s instagram (@dr_oz)) but I had a lot of fun! My legs feel like jelly so I‘ve retired to the couch to read this beautiful novel. I‘m sad for this series to end and really, really hope HBO does the book‘s justice.

Relaxing Sunday morning with one of my best friend‘s books! I was lucky enough to read the first draft and am so excited to dig in to a galley! I‘m so proud of Melanie. Everyone should add this to their TBR (it comes out Aug. 7)!

Evening cuddle buddies. If you‘re a fan of Meg Wolitzer, you‘ll definitely enjoy The Female Persuasion. Can‘t wait to see what everyone in book club thinks about it — currently resisting the urge to text my friends so that we can save the discussion for when we‘re consuming wine and cheese!

I ADORED The Wishing Spell. Chris Colfer created a vibrant imaginary world that I can‘t to revisit in book #2. I wish I knew middle grade-aged kids to recommend this to, but I don‘t, so....I‘m spreading the world here!

This book. Wow. I must admit that there were times when didn‘t think I could keep reading, not for the quality of the story, but for the content. I‘m glad I pushed through, though, because this will stick with me for a long, long time.

My year in review according to Goodreads. Fave reads of 2017 include Pachinko, The Hate U Give, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, and Commonwealth...to name just a few. Currently reading The Underground Railroad, but that‘ll end up on the 2018 list.

Earlier this week I posted about trying to read a ton of books this week to hand over to my sister while we‘re both home for the holidays. This is book three of four. I‘m a little over halfway done and I just love John Green. I wish his stuff was around when I was in high school. Here‘s to hoping I can finish this book by tomorrow night! 🤞🏻

JaclynW I second that about wishing I had books by John Green in high school. And Rainbow Rowell too. And....😉😊 2y

My sister and I live in different states, so we decided to swap books on each other‘s Goodreads TBR lists while home for Christmas. I packed four to give her and my goal was to read them before I leave on 12/23 (celebrating Christmas early this year), but I‘m quickly learning this might be a big challenge. Marlena is only book two, so the pressure is on! 😰

I work for a TV show so we have the two weeks around Christmas off (pretty customary in the talk show biz). I‘m heading home to visit my family and these are my early morning train essentials. (Swimming Lessons courtesy of @BookishKateNYC and her “I‘m moving soon” book purge!)

I know there are mixed reviews for this book on here, but I LOVED it. In the chaos that it is everyday life, it was so nice to escape into the magical world of the Owens family. Adding Practical Magic to my TBR ASAP!

Guys! I did it! I reached my Goodreads challenge goal...and in October, to boot! I wish I had read ON WRITING earlier in life because Stephen King is a delight with valuable writing advance. I know I‘ll come back to this one for advice and inspiration. I‘ve read THE SHINING and SALEM‘S LOT. What King book should I read next?

cariashley I just finished (and loved) Doctor Sleep! You may want to wait a bit if you just read The Shining though. 2y
cariashley Also congrats on finishing your challenge! 👍👏👍 2y
JessieReadsInBK @cariashley Thanks for the recommendation! I read The Shining a few years ago so I should take a look into Doctor Sleep. 2y
Kaye Congrats on reaching your goal for the year 👏 I haven‘t read lots of Stephen King...11-22-63. , Bag of Bones, Dolores Claiborn, The Green Mile. I think those are pretty mild if you‘re looking for something else scary. They were all very good. @JessieReadsInBK 2y
b00kwurm Definitely check out Sleeping Beauties! I loved it. 2y
