Skipped my workout this morning and am waiting in the car while my daughter is in rehearsals. I‘m loaded with essentials but mostly feeling like I could take a nap and also trying to resist walking to Voodoo Doughnuts. 💤💤 #decisions???

Long Black Veil | Jennifer Finney Boylan
post image

Book Riot‘s 2019 Read Harder Challenge #3 - Read a Book by a Trans or non-binary author. I‘m finishing up Long Black Veil, a murder mystery/marital drama that has my eyes watering. This book is deeply layered, exploring gender, identity and the depths of loyalty. It also has me majorly missing my college friends. 😭📖 #readharderchallenge #bookriot #bookstagram #longblackveil

Reading in the car. I haven‘t been this haunted by a story in a while. Lacy Eye is a Lizzie Borden for the modern day, beautifully told and so eerie. #bookofthemonth #lacyeye #readingincars

Lovesbooks87 Agree! 6mo
Lyn-Mara @Lovesbooks87 Right?!?!? I was so creeped out imagining what it would be like to suspect something was ‘off‘ about your child and to always hold that doubt. This one was totally underrated! 6mo

🤓Here‘s my top 10 out of 88 books read in 2018. (The Alienist should really be in this stack but I don‘t own a copy.) Yea for Book of the Month & Uppercase Box who keep the good ones coming to my front door all year! The top pick of my heart goes to We Sold Our Souls! 🖤 Velvety black lined pages, backward song lyrics etched into the front cover and a horror story played out on stage! Soooo good!!!!📚📚📚📚📚

Starting Book Riot‘s 2019 Read Harder challenge #1-Read a Book of Manga. Thank goodness my friend let me borrow one about a cat crazed couple. So cute and relatable! Who doesn‘t pine over the lonely cat adoption ads and romanticize about the lives they could have if you just brought them home???

Lyn-Mara @Eggs So sorry for the late response! It‘s been forever since I‘ve been on Litsy! Eggleston is my married name. My husband family hails from Vermont. We now live in Washington state. What part of the country are you from? 🙂 6mo
Eggs It's my married name also. My late husband grew up mostly in Louisiana. I grew up in Minnesota; migrated to Texas in my 20s 6mo

Spent so much time doing these with my best friend in middle school. Picked this up in hopes that my daughter might find them as hysterically fun as I once did and SHE DID!!! There was lots of wild laughter as she and her best friend went through these. So happy they loved this!

Taken from a Saturday night that really happened! Best novelization ever! Hysterical and some extra backstory- I highly recommend! 👻

queerbookreader Nice book choice 😜💚 1y
queerbookreader Yeah the backstory was amazing right??? Gave so much information about Erin and after I read it was like "yes now I understand a little better why she's so neurotic" lmao. The comic series running right now is amazing too!! 1y
Lyn-Mara @queerbookreader YES!!! Agreed! I was not expecting to love it as much as I did. Would love more in a series! I will have to check out these comics. Thanks for the tip! 🤓 1y

Love, love, love Fiona Barton. 'The Child' had me bursting into tears and this one kept me guessing all the way through. I love books that have me accusing every character because so many endings seem plausible. My first five star rating in the new year! ⭐️⭐️🌟⭐️⭐️

One more indulgent beach memory and a call out to arguably one of the best books I read this year. Final Girls was like a really great slasher movie with a twist but in book form. An unquestionable re-read.
