Loved it! And now I know I love novellas--which can be read in one or two sittings. I also love these stories because they're not heavy, they have happy endings, and are just what I need during these crappy troubling times. It checks all my boxes , unauthorized rescue mission ✔ guarded/ highly relatable MC afraid to let people know them ✔ close friends and a satisfying career ✔ oh and let's not forget making out inside a space station 🙈✔

Oh my word! I LOVED this book. It was entertaining, romantic, fast paced and heart breaking. I thought the fact that it alters between two timelines worked so well for Evelyn's story--I seriously feel like she was a real person. Perfect book to read for Pride Month 🏳️‍🌈 and I'm kicking myself for not reading it sooner. @shellleigh33 I remember you saying once this was one of your favs, are her others this good?!

shellleigh33 Yes. I love all her books. She is definitely one of my favorite authors 2mo

Recently read these two Ali Hazelwood novellas, they were perfectly cute and I loved them ! Both of the male antagonists are "grumpy sunshines," the women each are making their way in STEM careers and have actual modern friendships with each other , just overall satisfying stories! Thank you @britt_brooke for telling me about them!

Drawn to this book by its title, I just didn't love it as much as I wanted to. They just didn't talk enough about...books 🤷‍♀️. It was mainly about a complicated sister relationship and a Stars Hollowy town. And the romance part was just C+ 😬

LiteraryinLawrence Oh, I would have expected lots of book talk too! Hmm. This is on my TBR but we‘ll see. 2mo

My version of accessorizing 😆. I still have my copy which I was given in 1998! I always thought the Giving Tree was anti-transcendental, the boy takes and takes and takes after all until the tree is nothing but a stump. Anyway @LiteraryinLawrence I mailed out the next #LMPBC book via media mail today 💌📮

LiteraryinLawrence Thanks! Have you read the new ending version of Giving Tree where the tree sets boundaries? If not, you should. It‘s amazing. 2mo

Finally Finished. Just like Harry's Quest. My husband and I decided to reread all 7 books together in 2020. We had barely made it into the Prisoner of Azkaban and the read along was put on hold. I LOVED these books as a kid and as an adult I'll always love Harry Potter and wish that Hogwarts was a real place.

Oh the palpable excitement I experienced as I impatiently waited for each of these books to come out! Reading them again as an adult, I don't have that same "feeling;" in fact I find more to criticize, such as, how many times and different ways can she tell us that Poor Slughorn was portly?! ?. "His belly proceeded him" "he lingered at the Great Hall during meal times" we get it the man was FAT

Finished this up a few days ago as my fiance and I continue our re'read. Umbridge is such a "good" villain, disguising her evil and prejudices under a cloak of pink and kittens-- with a voice that makes you want to stab yourself in the eye with a quill, a most dangerous type and not unrealistic! The most disappointing part of this book was and still is the fated prophecy at the end. Luna shows up finally yay!

Susanita I saw a YouTube video that included a young Imelda Stanton, and I hardly recognized her. 5mo
