Spring has sprung in Kentucky and April is also #AussieApril month! If you‘re into Book Tube, check out the fabulous Jaclyn; native Australian living and lawyering in Houston, TX for some great Aussie recc‘s. Tune in at: Jaclyn // Six Minutes For Me. Yay spring ... yay books! 😃🦋🌸📚🇦🇺

Mimi28 Glad you‘re back!! ❤️❤️❤️☀️☀️☀️ 6mo
Joanne1 I absolutely adore The Strays. Hope you enjoy both of these great Aussie reads. 6mo
Litlady @Joanne1 - So glad to hear! I‘ve only just started but I can tell it‘s going to be brilliant! Do you have other Aussie author recommendations? 😊📚🇦🇺 (edited) 6mo
Joanne1 @Litlady so many. I‘ll share just a few of my favourites. Geraldine Brooks (start with Year of Wonders), Chloe Hooper (non-fiction author); Sofia Laguna; Markus Zusak (his latest novel, bridge of clay, blew me away); Helen Garner (fiction and non-fiction, some really interesting true crime); Hannah Kent; Charlotte Wood; Rosalie Ham (the dressmaker especially, but her others are good too). I could go on but that will do for now. 6mo
Litlady @Joanne1 Thanks so much! I‘ve read March by G. Brooks and Hannah Kent is on my radar for Burial Rites and The Good People. So many wonderful selections here and feeling my TBR exploding but it‘s already at that point anyway ... there are worse problems - Lol! 🤷🏼‍♀️ (edited) 6mo

@Beck9lol - After a great birthday dinner out post surgery look what was on my doorstep yesterday evening! Becky, you get me and I can‘t wait to dive into these awesome reads while I‘m home, healing and doing therapy hip excercises over and over again. The wrapping paper reminds me of Jane Austen! I love it all! So sweet and thank you so much. These will see me through my post op recovery! Best #LitsyPenpal ever! ❣️❣️❣️📚 🥰

A dark, cute and funny (short) tale about the good side of humans and wretched side as well. Anything with foxes on the cover or in the story line, I‘m sold! The day dreaming Fox 8 and I could be besties for sure! Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Down side is I am having hip replacement surgery the end of the month but happy news is while I‘m off work due to limited mobility and post op I can read, read, read! Boo hip .. YAY books! 😊

Look at all these beautiful gifts @Beck9lol gave me! Truly the best #LitsyPenPal Christmas ever! All of these have been on my radar and can‘t wait to dive in. I‘ve become a huge fan of Ottessa Moshfegh as of late. I know she‘s not everyone‘s cup of tea but she keeps her lit biting, a bit on the nasty side and very real. Go Steelers! Love the festive beanie-you nailed it, girlfriend! All the feels for everything. Thanks, Becky! ❣️🎄😊🎅🏻📚😘 👇

@Beck9lol - your package arrived safe and sound on my doorstep! My #LitsyPenPal is the best!! Whoever penned the quote, ‘patience is a virtue‘ obviously didn‘t get fab bookish swag throughout the year. Most of my family and friends are traveling for the holidays and I‘ll be flinging books and memberships at B&N so Christmas Day will be spent with lots of hot tea, wine, snacks and a pillow fort. Thanks, Becky! This warms my heart. ❣️🎄🎅🏻 📚

When You Reach Me | Rebecca Stead

I heard about this YA book from Kendra Winchester on either a Reading Women podcast or her BookTube channel (check them both out if you haven't already)! So glad I picked it up! Each chapter unfolds a piece of a puzzle for Miranda involving mysterious notes and talks of time travel and helping her mom prepare for the $20,000 Pyramid game show! Paying homage to Madeleine L'Engles 'A Wrinkle in Time' I could not put it down. 5 out 5 stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟❣

Autumn | Ali Smith

Ali Smith is not the easiest author to read but I found her writing flow and words beautiful. If linear prose and plot is your wheelhouse, you won't find it here. The setting takes place mostly in post Brexit England and the thoughts, anger, frustration and fear in her writing mimics what we are facing in the states. The story also revolves around a sweet and tender friendship between a young girl and her elderly neighbor. Highly recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Going to squeeze in some #Litsypartyofone time before I juggle books and memberships later today/tonight at my bookselling job at B&N. Trying to make the world a better place, one book at a time! Happy Saturday, Littens!! ❤️📚🤓

Hazel0303 I just was at B&N tonight and noticed how much was different, but so much was the same. (I worked there from Sept 07 to Dec 09). I kept thinking how much I missed my time there. The membership program has really fallen on my opinion- books are so expensive to buy full price. No idea how they plan to compete with Amazon. 2y

She persists and lives her life on her own terms while dealing with her mother, family, friends and lovers. I felt the whole layout of the book could have been in a short story format.

This book! More of a family saga than mystery but every aspect of this literary gem from the stellar character development to the grounded, solid plot lines kept me hooked.

Jiles description of the northern Texas territory and blurbs of actual news events of the time; i.e the start up of baseball (The Cincinnati Red Stockings) to name a few news worthy events kept the story moving along. A tale that takes us to post Civil War times with the transport of a young captive of the Kiowa tribe. Brought to you by the letter N. #LitsyAtoZchallenge
