Mon Rovîa describes himself as an "Afro Appalachian folk artist. Rescued by grace from the Civil War in Liberia - here to instill peace."

And his music does just that - it instills a sense of calm and melancholy when I listen to it.

I happened upon his music quite by accident on Instagram and you may have heard his song "City on a Hill" as background music on a reel or two.

Truly lovely folk musician ?

Librariana @TheKidUpstairs Oh, I'm so glad you're familiar with his music! And I love that both of us happened upon him very serendipitously ☺️ I completely agree that it is easy to fall in love with how soothing the sound is 🥰 4mo

Hooked_on_books Hi Ana! I hope you‘re lurking and just not posting much. I‘m thinking about you and hope you are well! 2mo
Librariana @Hooked_on_books Sweetest Holly! So thoughtful of you to leave such a kind and thoughtful comment 😊 I am indeed 'lurking' a bit 😁 I feel like I've been reading the same book for ages - Most Ardently - and really milking it since I'm finding it so modernly delightful. I'm doing well (as I hope you are, too!) but will soon be traveling to Texas (along with my hubby) to take care of my mamá. How are you?? 2mo
Hooked_on_books That‘s the best reason for a book to take a while to read! You‘ll be sad when it‘s finally over. I‘m doing well. We‘re trying to sell our property, which is a challenging thing to do, as it is unique and the potential buyer pool is quite small. I have no idea how long it will take, probably years, so just trying to be patient. My husband is jonesing to get back to Oregon. Safe travels to Texas for you two! 2mo

Hi.

Lately, I've been trying to concentrate on my reading. A novel idea, I know.

In the past, I've chatted with my adopted sis @CBee about not feeling like a part of the Litsy community... but I realize it's my own doing, choosing to be digitally absent because I don't feel "good enough," whether it be in the quality of a review or the amount of participation I engage in.

(Cont'd ⬇️)

Librariana
(1/2) I have to remind myself that these comparisons are self-created... that these feelings are my own, and not something anyone else has imposed.

So I'm gonna try to get back to the joy and not make this unnecessarily difficult on myself... at least while the app continues to work on my Samsung phone 😉
4mo
Librariana (2/2) For now, I did remember how much I enjoyed the Pantone reading challenge, and since I didn't see a post about it (again, my own fault for not being around), I decided to make my own cards and focus on the New York Fashion Week colors only.

If anyone would like the digital images, I'd be more than happy to share them ☺️

Librarybelle I love reading your posts! What did you think of Legends & Lattes? I really liked it, though it‘s not my usual genre. 4mo
Julsmarshall Love all these colors! And I loved Shark Heart-so strange and wonderful! 4mo
ChaoticMissAdventures ❤️❤️❤️❤️ social media is hard!! I love seeing you here though! 4mo
CBee @Librariana SIS!!! You have no idea how lovely it is to see a post from you ♥️♥️♥️ 4mo
BarbaraBB Very glad you‘re thinking this way! I‘ve been doing the #Pantone2024 challenge as well because I enjoyed it so much! 4mo
Librariana @Librarybelle Thank you for your kind words ? I appreciate and love reading your posts as well, although timing isn't always on my side... which means I miss out on a lot of people's posts and need to do a better job of not just relying on home page updates. As for Legends & Lattes, I'll confess it's also not my go-to genre, but I found the "slice of life" aspect put under a high fantasy lens to be very sweet and imaginative! What did you think? 4mo
Librariana @Julsmarshall Shark Heart was definitely NOT what I was expecting, but it was certainly more lyrical and lovely in its writing style than I anticipated. There were so many deep thought morsels... things to reflect on later... and I flagged/hughlighted/annotated SO many of them. I did a buddy read of it with a coworker and we plan to chat more about it over coffee this week. I'm looking forward to hearing her perspective on it! 4mo
Librariana @ChaoticMissAdventures Social media IS hard! It is a tricky 'machine' to maneuver. Funny enough, I'm listening to an audiobook called "Generations" by Jean M. Twenge, PhD and the Gen Z chapter talks a great deal about social media ramping up social comparison... how everyone feels like they have to be perfect. It's very fascinating stuff! Makes me very grateful to be a Gen X-er and wise enough to regulate my feelings about my digital presence. 4mo
Librariana @ChaoticMissAdventures I am ALSO very glad that you're here and that I get to see your posts and interact with you via this platform ☺️ 4mo
Librariana @CBee Please think of this reply as though it were a "Care Bear Stare" and I am beaming sunshine and rainbows in your direction! ??? 4mo
Librariana @BarbaraBB 😄😁😊 I know in the past, Clwojick would share her images of the colors and would include London... but when I saw the colors, I wasn't too keen on some 🫤, so I decided to go rogue and just do the 2024 New York Fashion Week shades for both Spring/Summer AND Autumn/Winter ☺️ I'll see how close I can get the covers to match! 4mo
Centique I know what you mean about timing! Because im in NZ most of the Littens i usually talk to are posting when im asleep! I have to make a list of names and go check on what people have posted. Not super convenient! So i end up reading and commenting on a whole lot of old posts - but people are cool with that. I hope you feel more welcomed and included. Feel free to tap me on the shoulder if i havent seen your posts! 💕 4mo
Librarybelle @Librariana I surprisingly really liked it! I got sucked in right away to the story, and the pacing was great. I actually just checked out the second book from the library so I can continue the story! And, feel free to comment on any posts that are not immediately on the home feed - it doesn‘t matter if it‘s from last week or last year! I think we all in the Litsy community just love connecting and talking about books! ❤️ 4mo
kspenmoll Please do not worry about posts or reviews etc. this is a judgement free platform which is why I love it. Often I do not get on until weekends when I am not working- it‘s nice to get a “like” or comment from old posts. We care about each other, including you! Thank you for putting yourself out there & being so open & honest. Appreciate your words so much! Sending ❤️💙🩷💜🩷 4mo

Outside, it is my favorite kind of day - gloomy, foggy - and inside, I'm spending it in my new favorite place - cozy under a blanket, accompanied by candlelight, reading... and getting over COVID 😔

Librariana @ravenlee And thank you for referring to this space as a sanctuary 🥰 I think that is the perfect word for it! Now I just gotta tackle the scary, scary closet 😳 7mo
Librariana @Librarybelle Thank you so much for your sweet compliments about the home library and for your kind well wishes! 💜 I tested positive this past Sunday and qualified for a medication due to being high risk. I'm very grateful there was something I could take to keep the virus from multiplying and grateful to've been vaccinated already. It kept my symptoms rather mild. 7mo
Librariana @Hooked_on_books Thank you so much, Holly! 💜 A very humbling compliment. I agree that the COVID part is anything BUT perfect. I genuinely wasn't expecting it! Thought it was just a cold. Good thing I tested before going to work! I felt pretty cruddy until Tuesday, so I was rather lethargic and with little energy for much. Have read a little more the past two days and am hoping for more reading this weekend 😊 7mo
Librariana @JamieArc I am right there with ya! ? I was like, "Am I gonna be one of those shiny, happy people who doesn't get it!??" And then I thought... wow... that must mean I have no social life ? And I mean... I DON'T... but that's beside the point ? I'm sorry you and your spouse BOTH got a visit from Corona! My husband is still testing negative, so here's to hoping it misses him completely! 7mo
Librariana @BookmarkTavern Thank you, kindly! I feel like I am on the mend! 😊 Symptoms have definitely subsided, thank goodness. 7mo
Librariana @ChaoticMissAdventures Thank you, Shawna! 💜 I was just really scared it would progress to something severe or that I'd need to go to the hospital, and I am *very* grateful that did not happen. As a high-risk individual, I qualified for a medication that helped keep the virus from multiplying. My symptoms have certainly subsided. 7mo
marleed Your space is wonderful and thank goodness Covid could be tackled when it found its way to you! 7mo
Librariana I agree 1,000% @marleed ! My husband and I remarked on the same thing... how grateful we both were that this happened to me NOW vs. at the beginning of the pandemic... when we were still figuring things out. I'm grateful to've been recently vaccinated and to have medication on hand that could help! 😊💕 7mo

The book-buying ban held... until June, when we went on our family trip to Utah, and I couldn't resist an indie bookstore in Moab. And yesterday, I added 2 more titles to the collection - Days at the Morisaki Bookshop and Shark Heart.

Home library organization is still going strong, and some shifting is happening... along with some weeding.

I should probably elaborate... 😉

After months of cutting, affixing, sanding, priming, and painting (and then going on a family trip to Utah... and then deciding to paint the trim to match the baseboards), we're finally finished with our #homelibrary project. Yay!!

Now, on to the fun part - bringing aaaallllll the books back and deciding where everything is going to go...

Librariana @ChaoticMissAdventures Thank you!! 😊😊 It feels SO good to finally be done with this project and be moving books back on. I'm slowly moving small piles and just putting things in general areas to get an idea of how things will be organized.

Pageboy: A Memoir | Elliot Page

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
A deeply personal and fiercely honest memoir written in thoughtful prose. At many times, vulnerable and heart-wrenching when exploring gender dysphoria and transition, while also including both infuriating details about unwelcome sexual advances and intimate details about consensual encounters.

Cont'd in comments ⬇️

Librariana The anecdotal style was certainly refreshing and easier to engage with in audiobook format, but could've perhaps benefitted from a more chronological arrangement vs. its non-linear narrative. 11mo

In Limbo | Deb JJ Lee

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
It can be a monumental challenge to capture the idiosyncrasies of youth, mental health, and high school friendships in a graphic memoir... but to do so while also tackling the intersections of race, culture, family, and identity is quite the feat.

Lee tackled these subjects with grace and honesty in a stunningly delicate and detailed illustrative style that, although entirely monochromatic, beautifully complimented the themes depicted.

"Hollywood is built on leveraging queerness. Tucking it away when needed, pulling it out when beneficial while patting themselves on the back. Hollywood doesn't lead the way... it responds, it follows, slowly and far behind.

The depth of that closet, the trove of secrets buried, indifferent to the consequences. I was punished for being queer while I watched others be protected and celebrated." -- Elliot Page

Hooked_on_books I loved this book. And love him! 11mo
Librariana @Hooked_on_books 😍😍 He's a great writer! I find his prose/writing style to be very... literary? Lyrical? I don't know how else to describe it. I do appreciate his raw honesty, but it also makes me quite sad to learn about people being mean to him. Hurts my heart! 11mo
Hooked_on_books @Librariana It hurts my heart, too, but sadly doesn‘t surprise me. I feel like deep down he has a lot of strength. He‘s a great example to trans folks going through abuse and trauma to give them strength. I‘m so glad for that. 11mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️
Samantha Irby is hilarious.
And although there were a few essays that weren't exactly my cuppa (porn preferences, toilet tales, and gastrointestinal anecdotes), there was plenty of her signature self-deprecating humor and spot-on observations to carry this collection through. I especially loved "The Last Normal Day," "How to Look Cool in Front of Teens?", and "Please Invite Me to Your Party."

I can't say I *always* pay attention to a book's publisher, but when I like a book and appreciate some detail about it, I have to look at the copyright page.

I've noticed a pattern in loving:
• travel guides by DK Eyewitness. I adore their photography, layouts, and their illustrations of buildings' interiors.
• graphic novels by First Second as well as Graphix.
• titles by Quirk Books and Scholastic Press.

Hello friends!
A month or two in, and we've made some progress on the home library. IKEA Billys (and extenders!) were assembled, original bookcases were donated to loving homes, paint was ordered, and additional trim supplies were purchased. Wekends never seem long enough, and we've had to juggle complete dedication to this project with errands and prior commitments, but we're getting closer to me knowing, with certainty, where my books are 😁

Librariana @Cinfhen - Hi Cindy! 👋😁 I promise I'm still around 😄😊 I realize I've been very quiet and absent; I blame my books being in stacks on the floor for that (I don't know where anything is!). My reading life feels like it's taken a hit and is in a bit of disarray, but I do hope that once the library is all finished, I can get myself into a better mental and physical space. Thank you for thinking of me and sweetly checking in! 💜 13mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Bummed to learn that this would be the end of the "Great Cities" series for N.K. Jemisin... That where the author had planned for a trilogy, this became a duology. It saddens me to learn of innovative writers losing steam with a project, but I can't fault Ms. Jemisin for doing so considering she was writing this in the middle of the pandemic! An emotionally-draining time of great turmoil and uncertainty indeed.

Cont'd in comments ⬇️

Librariana (1 of 1) I so loved the idea of cities "coming to life", being represented by human avatars that embodied the essence of their boroughs and citizens, fighting a battle with metaphysical constructs and concepts against forces wanting to bend them into submission through assimilation and gentrification. The ending, although concise, felt... hopeful. But I will certainly miss its characters, especially Padmini (Queens), who I grew quite fond of. 1y

Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, the documentary "Paris is Burning" chronicled the New York City Ballroom culture of the time, introducing us to its drag queen-organized pageants, and to a small cast of its iconic participants, among them performers such as Dorian Corey (who made headlines posthumously when a mummified body was found in her closet) and Pepper LaBeija, as well as Angie and Venus Xtravaganza.

Review & CW/TW cont'd in comments ⬇️

Librariana (1 of 3) These competitions showcased contestants 'walking' a fashion category (much like a model on a runway) and representing their 'houses' - surrogate families that provided (oftentimes runaway) LGBTQ youth with shelter and support.

One of these was the legendary House of Xtravaganza, also known as "The House of Impossible Beauties" where the tagged title takes its name.
1y
Librariana (2 of 3) I watched "Paris is Burning" well more than 10 years ago and oftentimes wondered about its protagonists, curious about where the future might take them.

This fictionalized account gives us brief glimpses into the lives of Angel, Venus, Juanito, and Daniel, four characters who are all inspired by and modeled after some of the House of Xtravaganza's most famous members
1y
Librariana (3 of 3) with Venus being the one who most closely resembles her real life counterpart both in name and sadly, in the manner of her untimely and tragic death. 1y

In recent weeks, my eyes have begun to let me know (in subtle and LOUD ways!) that my computer-heavy job is taking a toll on them. After a visit to the optometrist, I was diagnosed with SPK (superficial punctate keratitis) - a (treatable!) ocular surface disease that affects the cornea, decreasing vision and causing the eye to become red, watery, and sensitive to light.

(Cont'd ⬇️)

Librariana 1 of 2 - All that to say... I'm trying to take better care of my vision 😁😊🧐🤓😎 I'm still reading!... but I'm also resting my eyes more frequently and listening to audiobooks, taking omega-3 supplements, applying drops and hot compresses.

I'll be taking more intense, steroid-based eye drops soon and am grateful for a treatment plan/course of action ? 1y
Clwojick So glad it‘s treatable! Take it easy, and keep those headphones nice and charged up for audiobooks ☺️ I‘d say about 80% of my reads are audiobooks, so let me know if you ever need a recommendation. 🎧 1y
Andrew65 Sorry to hear the problem you are having with your eyes, but pleased to know the issue has been diagnosed and even better that it is treatable. Sending love and best wishes and enjoy sone good audiobooks. ❤️ 1y

Born a Crime | Trevor Noah

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My husband and I both greatly enjoyed listening to Trevor Noah narrate stories from his childhood. Although at times tackling very difficult moments and traumatic experiences in his life, we appreciated the frankness and humor with which he approached these topics. His mom's grace and wisdom were also especially admirable.

I genuinely *DID* want this to be the year of organization, mindfulness, and *planning*... of being *prepared*... and I know it still CAN be... but being a perfectionist always throws a wrench into the works and I get paralyzed. I wanted to have beautiful written journal spreads, but here we are. Better late than never! 😁

Be prepared to see plenty of catch up posts from yours truly for beginning of the year reading plans that I procrastinated on because I a) was too overwhelmed by all the fabulous options and b) let the pursuit of general holiday coziness take over my life. Planning kinda went out the window. I regret nothing. 😁🤩 More to come!

These are (were?) my last book purchases of 2022.

I took advantage of Barnes & Noble's 50% Off Sale after Christmas AND bought the top 2 books from a local indie on Friday.

And with that I enter the #NoBuy/#BuyLess zone to #PrioritizeMyShelves in 2023 😁

The only exceptions I plan to make are for pre-orders already made and for gifts (although I'll encourage my family to get creative and think beyond books!)

@CBee @JamieArc @RaeLovesToRead

RaeLovesToRead Glad I'm not alone. Today was day 1 dessert free as well. No book buying... no dessert... how will I survive?!?! 😯😱😅 1y

Librariana @RaeLovesToRead Ok, remind me darling, is it gonna be for the WHOLE YEAR!?? Or just for the month of January??? 1y
JamieArc I plan on limiting myself to 1 book/month, plus two times when I can buy a few later this year. 1y
Librariana @JamieArc I think that is extremely sensible 😊 I have three pre-orders that happened in 2022 that I look forward to this year 😁 I think the only other times were book gifts might happen are anniversary, birthday, and Christmas. 1y
RaeLovesToRead @rubyslippersreads @CBee @TrishB @Librariana My plan is to review my goals month by month. So January is a dessert detox (Day 1 and I have a cracking headache 😬😬😬) and for the whole year I need to be CAREFUL about my purchases. I can't say I'm not going to buy anything, but I'm going to do my best. If any special editions come out, I may buy them and give them to Mum to gift me next Xmas 😅😅 It's a space thing as well as a money thing! 😋 1y
Librariana @CBee Awesome to hear that Lessons in Chemistry was one of your faves! 😁😊 I've heard great things about it from multiple friends. As for the Joella, I'm embarrassed to say... but I've never read anything by him 😳 I added A Quiet Life to our library system's catalog and was very intrigued by the premise. I realize I could've just borrowed it, but there was a holds queue already AND it mirrored the theme of the other memoirs I wanted to pick up. 1y
Librariana @RaeLovesToRead I promise this is a judgment free zone, hon so you do you! There's no judgment if something is purchased because goodness knows I've already made allowances for pre-orders and special occasions. As for the dessert detox, I do wish you luck 🍀 and hope it just gets easier. Hang in there! 🌈 1y
CBee @Librariana well, A Little Hope was his first book, so you‘re 1 book away from reading his whole body of work 😂 I enjoyed it! 1y

Andrew65 @Librariana It may be just pulling together stock images but still very creative in the way you‘ve pulled them together, I don‘t have that creative vision so mine would have looked nowhere as good even with the same images!

"Personal Effects: What Recovering the Dead Teaches Me About Caring for the Living" was my favorite March read.

As the owner of a disaster management company, Jensen doesn't shy away from talking plainly about recovery work after mass casualty events, from the Oklahoma City bombing to the Grenfell Tower Fire.

Not necessarily a book for everyone but one I found fascinating.

Cheating a tiny bit on Day 2 of the #12booksof2022, but I couldn't include one without the other.

My favorite February read was "Alone Together", edited by Jennifer Haupt, and although it took me a while to complete due to its anthology format, it was still a very worthwhile perspective on how folks coped with life during lockdown and with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Love Was Inside" gave a child's view of the same.

@Andrew65

Andrew65 Important times, with important messages. 1y
Librariana Agreed, @Andrew65! Some of the stories were definitely sad but plenty had uplifting messages of resilience 💜 1y

My favorite January read had me reminiscing on old habits (wrapping myself with the chord of the kitchen phone) and beloved objects of the pre-Internet era (Rolodex, anyone?) It was a nostalgic walk down memory lane and provided welcome moments of reflection on things lost (and gained!) Pamela Paul has also written another book I'm looking forward to reading in the new year - My Life With Bob.

Last food post of the day! 😁

Spokane is currently experiencing NEGATIVE degree wind chills (as are many other parts of the country, so I know we're not special!) Made for a perfect day to get some chowder!

I shared their clever drink menu earlier, but these were our lunch choices: I had elote corn chowder while hubby had pork carnitas chowder. He had a cheesesteak sandwich with salad and I had a Cuban sandwich with tater tots!

ChaoticMissAdventures Portland isn't supposed to get over 25 the next couple of days I stocked up and am now refusing to leave my house. 1y

News is reporting single digit temperatures for the next few days with wind chills in the -20⁰ to -30⁰ range 🥶🥶🥶 I've been off work the last 2 days for routine medical appointments, but hubby and I both have to go to work tomorrow. We'll hunker down the remainder of the evening until we have to venture out for tamales on Friday ☺️ 1y

Asked Santa for an early Christmas present that'll be a tad delayed as it is a pre-order.

For those who might not know this about me, I am quite fond of the tagged title and greatly enjoy modern retellings of it. Although this is not the latter, it IS a new edition of the classic, designed by Nerdy Ink, due out in February 2023.

I'm in love 🥰 and grateful that the Instagram fairies were smiling down upon me while browsing.

JamieArc Wow! So interesting and gorgeous! 😍 1y
Librariana @JamieArc I thought so, too! 🥰🥰 It caught me off guard when I saw it on an Instagram ad. I follow the NerdyInk account, but with the algorithm being what it is, I don't always see her posts. I'm so glad I happened upon this one when I did and that I was able to pre-order it! 1y
