My first thought was, "Is Pacey going to play the eldest son?" And then I remembered that 20 years have passed and he's almost definitely playing the dad. ??‍♀️? #youknowyouregettingoldwhen

I‘ve been a bit absent from Litsy lately. It has been a MONTH (it‘s actually been a year, if I‘m being honest). I‘m still making time to read a little every day on my commute, but otherwise my life is consumed by work. Luckily, we‘re going on vacation in two weeks (road trip!) so hopefully I can get back to participating more then because I miss you! In the meantime, trying to get some work/life balance lessons from this book. #lawyersoflitsy

BookwormAHN Glad you‘re back. Have fun on your trip 😺 5d

Mehso-so

I know giving this a so-so is an unpopular opinion. I liked Barker's writing style, and I love the idea, but this felt so one dimensional to me and I couldn‘t get invested in the characters. Maybe it‘s because it‘s been so long since I studied the Iliad, I don‘t remember much about it. But I felt like this had so much potential and it just missed the mark.

KatieDid927 Nah I‘m with you. This was nowhere near Madeline Miller. 3w

If all the hormones and drama and internal torture and revenge fantasies boiling inside teenage girls actually boiled over into reality. Very dark and twisted.

"It was always another thing, being a girl." I don't think we can really appreciate the truth of this statement when we are young. In adulthood, it's glaringly obvious in every facet of life.

This book was lovely, though heartbreaking at times. It's not a true ghost story, but deals beautifully with love and loss and grief.

1 - traveling, baking, skiing
2 - knitting or crocheting. I'm a lefty and having a hard time trying from books and videos, so I need to take a class.
3 - I get a new Christmas ornament whenever I travel
4 - I've had wanderlust my whole life. No one in my family likes to travel so I don't know where it came from!
5 - 🍻

#hellothursday @wanderinglynn

julesG Are you trying to learn lefty crochet and knitting? I have somehow learned both ways. Being ambidextrous it wasn't very hard for me. But, learning it the lefty way was more of an accident. After years of not knitting, I picked up needles and started to knit, then a friend pointed out that I was doing the same movements as her, but she was sitting opposite me. 😁 2mo
wanderinglynn Thanks for playing! 💜 2mo
llwheeler I'm a lefty too! I learned crochet online... found some lefty YouTube tutorials that gave me enough of the basics to be able to understand written instructions (a few years ago though, don't remember the names, sorry) 2mo
Crazeedi My grandmother tried to tech me, a lefty, years ago, no dice and I've never tried again🤨 2mo

The Hate U Give | Angie Thomas

This was so powerful, and in an accessible and relatable way. It perfectly captured the the usual teenage issues and vividly described the additional burden on black youth and black communities. I cried multiple times, including a borderline ugly cry on the train to work this morning as I finished it. I can't recommend this enough, both for adults and teens.

I finally got a chance to read this and I really enjoyed it! Bipolar and schizophrenia run in both sides of my family, so I'm familiar with the symptoms and how difficult it can be for those who suffer with these diagnoses, especially when they're not receiving the right treatment. Thank you for sending me your book and sharing this story with me, @Ava_Black ! I'll be sure to spread the word!

Ava_Black Thank you for taking the time to read. My great aunt had schizophrenia and it affected us all in different ways. Its definitely a subject that needs to be more readily addressed. 2mo

Fever: A Novel | Mary Beth Keane
post image
Pickpick

A fictionalized account of Mary Mallon, aka "Typhoid Mary." Keane paints a vivid and accurate picture of early 1900s New York, and portrays Mary as a strong and tenacious woman. I loved Mary and sympathized with her plight given the time period, even as I hated her choices through my 21st century lens. This book was fascinating, not to mention incredibly well researched and beautifully written.
