This arrived just in time for Spring Break!

Reviewsbylola This is on my tbr! 2y
AmyG I‘d be curious what you think. On my tbr, too. 2y
Kris10 @AmyG I just finished! Hard to rate this book. I liked the premise and the end. The middle was kind of boring to me, and took me forever to get through. Still a pick though! 2y
AmyG Thank you. 2y

The Helper | David Jackson

I need help! I only have one book left for the #LRC: Book that takes place over 150 years ago. I‘m halfway through Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. Does that count? If not, recommendation please!!

Picked this one for my #LRC #startswithZ. The book kept me interested and the pages going. Multiple narrators telling the same story but with different accounts. Who is telling the truth? Not my favorite read this month but I‘m satisfied.

I‘ve been MIA from Litsy for a while now. This last semester really kicked my butt. However, I can‘t think of a better way to get back to reading than a sneaux day in South Louisiana! (My kids first time ever seeing snow!)

Zelma Hi from nearby! 👋 it is so strange seeing all of the snow pictures on my FB feed this morning. Our yard has melted but the room is still covered. 2y
Kris10 @Zelma we got about 4-5 inches! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought it was possible 😂 loving every second of it! 2y
Zelma Wow, a lot more than us. We got maybe an inch or so. It started to rain again in the morning so it‘s melted off. I‘m more worried about all the ice after it freezes tonight. 2y

Great book! I really enjoyed the audiobook's narration, if the length is intimidating for you. Now if only I could go back in time and get Stephen King to write "the past is obdurate" 20 times less.

Cinfhen So true!!!! 2y
huntersmom1977 I've read all these books. I admit all 3 made me cry the ugly cry so loud that my own dog stared whimpering. But the storyline's in all 3 books were so amazing and even a couple parts in Marley & Me made me laugh out loud on a packed bus. ❤️ 2y
Kris10 @huntersmom1977 yes! They are all so worth the ugly crying involved! Marley and Me was my favorite! 2y

Look what was on my doorstep! I couldn't resist ordering this new book sub box!

Megabooks Which one did you get? 2y
Kris10 @Booksandcooks I got romance ☺️ my first choices were lit fiction or mystery but they were already sold out. I do like the box I got though! Did you get one? 2y
Megabooks @Kris10 No but I won a free book. Idk if I'll try it or not. 2y
Kris10 @Booksandcooks the best part of the box is that the book comes with notes written by the author explaining parts of the book. If your book comes with that it's worth it to try the free book! 2y

What an incredible #summersantagoespostal box from @riversong153 I couldn't be happier with the books she chose! I just moved Boy, Snow, Bird to the top of my TBR. And those goodies 😍 It definitely brightened this rainy Wednesday. Thank you so much!!! (Not pictured: the cutest stamp set my 4 yo will not let go of 😂) Thanks to @BookishMarginalia for putting together!

riversong153 Yay!!! I'm glad you like! I was nervous about them. 2y
Kris10 @riversong153 I seriously squealed when I opened each! I've had Three Dark Crowns on my TBR since it came out. I've been wanting to read something by Mary Kay Andrews and Tana French but never have. Boy, Snow, Bird's premise sounds fantastic! YA, mystery, chick-lit, and a book that will make me think: you nailed it! 2y
Hollie Looks like @riversong153 did an amazing job!! 2y
