It‘s amazing what a week away from technology can do to supercharge your reading life! This is what I managed to get through in that week, and I feel like my concentration is improved as a result of it. And the tagged book…ah-mazing! 😍 #techvacation #thriller

ravenlee Hooray! Well done you! 4mo
LiteraryinLawrence A tech-free week would require so much discipline but I love the idea! It‘s awesome that you got to recenter and read. 💗 4mo
LittlePixels @LiteraryinLawrence It required a bit of planning, and I did check my texts once a day *very* briefly (in case of emergencies). It was worth it, though. I did it last year too, and plan to keep doing it every summer. It‘s a nice way to reset. 4mo

Upgrade: A Novel | Blake Crouch
post image

Yay for new Blake Crouch! His books are always page-turners. I can't wait! 📚🎉

FortunateSon I will always read Blake Crouch. Almost done with Upgrade and it's been great! I see The Paradox Hotel in there too, and it's also on my TBR! 5mo
LittlePixels @FortunateSon Yeah, somehow Paradox Hotel keeps getting pushed down my list. I actually started it right before Upgrade got here, then put it down again, and now I‘m reading Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow. I swear I‘ll get to it eventually! 🤣 Upgrade was awesome, though. I devoured it in two sittings. Pretty much par for the course for Blake Crouch books for me. 💖 5mo
FortunateSon @LittlePixels I just got Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow from BOTM as well. Hope to get to it soon but I have a few other books on deck first. 5mo

I wasn't really enjoying the book much until this chapter. Mr. Collins is such a condescending bastard that I'm angry *for* Lizzy. I actually laughed out loud at her father's response here. 😂

JillR I think this is my very favourite part of the book, in fact my daughter and I watched the film adaptation at the weekend and she had to tell me to stop going on about how much I love this bit 😆 5mo
LittlePixels @jillr 😄 That's awesome. My daughter and I are buddy-reading it and planning to watch the movie together afterwards. 5mo

OMG OMG OMG! #droughtlander is finally over! My daughter and I took the day off of #homeschooling to have our own little #readathon to celebrate! First, an early morning trip to the bookstore (she's excited about the recent release of Marissa Meyer's new book "Gilded"), now we get a full day of reading. Yay!! #outlander #raisingreaders

The Last Unicorn | Peter S. Beagle
post image

I ordered this book (specifically the 40th anniversary edition) from eBay for my daughter's birthday recently. The seller sent me the current edition I could have bought for cheaper on Amazon. 😡 Do any of you wonderful Littens know where I could get my hands on this version, for a reasonable price? I've been Googling and trolling eBay for a month now, but I can't find it. My daughter is a super fan and I would really love to get this for her. TIA

GondorGirl Maybe try AbeBooks? 1y
LittlePixels @GondorGirl Thanks! I found another one on eBay yesterday. Keeping my fingers crossed that they actually send the right edition this time! 🤞 1y

Luster: A Novel | Raven Leilani
post image

(Sorry, no pretty cover in my Kindle version)
So, this was intriguing enough to read, but I honestly kind of expected to hate it. It was dark, crass, vulgar and unrelatable. And I loved it. The sumptuous writing alone was worth the price of admission. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Americanah | Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche

"Princeton, in the summer, smelled of nothing, and although Ifemelu liked the tranquil greenness of the many trees, the clean streets and stately homes, the delicately overpriced shops, and the quiet, abiding air of earned have, it was this, the lack of a smell, that most appealed to her, perhaps because the other American cities she knew well had all smelled distinctly." - Holy marathon sentence, Batman! #firstlinefridays @ShyBookOwl

You Are Not Alone | Sarah Pekkanen, Greer Hendricks

Coming up with #3Books that made me uncomfortable was pretty hard. I'm just not made uncomfortable that easily in my reading. These two books definitely did it though. The tagged book because of the subject matter and A Little Life because it was just so, so brutal. I actually had to just put it down for a bit a couple of times to take a break from all the sadness. Still, it's one of my favorite books from the past several years. ❤️💔

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks The tagged book was my choice also, but I was too busy to post that day... I‘m also rarely made uncomfortable in my reading... 2y

It took me soooooo long to read this book. I should have DNF'd, but so many people love it that I needed to see what I was missing. Unfortunately, it was buried in so many metaphors that I could hardly find the plot. I'm sorry to anyone that loved it. #itsnotyouitsme

All of these for $3? Yes please! I haven't read #petsematary since it first came out, so it's time for a re-read to see how it holds up. The poetry is for #homeschool and the others are because I canceled my #BoTM membership earlier this year, so I've missed a lot of their picks. Thank you to whoever dropped them off at my library's book sale! Their loss is my gain! 😉💗

I'd rather have this in hardcover, but didn't want to spend the money (too many book hauls lately! #sorrynotsorry 😉), so I'm thrilled that I got my library hold so quickly.

So far, I'm loving the books in Amazon's new "forward collection". They're all super fast reads, and this one was so good I'm sorry it's over. If you like speculative fiction and are interested in AI and superintelligence (and don't easily have nightmares!), this one's for you. So chilling!!

Is anyone else a #gamer as well as a reader? I used to kind of hide it, as some people see it as childish, or a guy thing or whatever, but now I'm too old to care! I love this bookshelf; the juxtaposition of my game guides right next to my classics (they're to the right on this shelf) sums me right up. 😜 Now, back to Borderlands! #gamergirl

GrilledCheeseSamurai Yaaaaas! I'm a gamer! Also...im actually playing New Leaf right now on my 3DS cuz the hype is real for the one coming on Switch and it get me wanting to play Animal Crossing again. 😅 Also a big fan of Stardew Valley so this pic, for me, is 🔥. 3y
GrilledCheeseSamurai And don't ever be embarrassed about what you love! Let the flag fly. 🤘 3y
LittlePixels @GrilledCheeseSamurai I've been getting back into New Leaf a bit too. New Horizons can't get here fast enough! 3y
LittlePixels @GrilledCheeseSamurai Also, if you like Stardew, you'd love this book. It's absolutely gorgeous! I already have many hundreds of hours into the game on various platforms, but wanted the book as a keepsake because it's so beautiful. As for being up front about gaming, it's more acceptable these days, I think. My husband laughed when I told him I didn't even consider myself a gamer for the longest time, though I really have been since forever 😜 3y

LittlePixels @AileenRR Unless you count ebooks, I only have extra copies of this one and MOBY (got that one free from a library reading program).

Oh. My. Gosh. I just read this book in two sittings! From the cover blurb it sounded just ok, so after buying it on release day (Blake Crouch is an insta-buy) I set it aside until I felt ready to tackle it. Then I couldn't put it down!

I just read this entire thing in bed tonight, while trying not to wake hubby with my "damn, that thing is bright as the sun!" book light. It was a fast read, but not really my thing. The Lincoln parts were interesting, but the nattering spirits, despite the unique format, were dull dull dull. It was like "The Breakfast Club" for dead people.

I finished this about 60 seconds ago, and I'm still choked up from that last line. This one had #allthefeels - and what a ride it was.

This one deserves all the stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
