Sorry for being a little quiet, I‘ve been celebrating my birthday and enjoying my new Kindle Fire! It came with three free months of Kindle Unlimited so I plan to knock out the books I wanna read on there after I finish ShadowHunters. What are you favorite KU reads? I‘m looking for some good recommendations. #harrypotter #kindle #JKRowling #kindleunlimited

atla There are a ton of issues of F&SF (Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction) on kindle unlimited that I‘ve had fun sampling :) 2y

#twofortuesday @TheSpineView Thanks for the tag, @DarkMina 💛. 1) The Nutcracker is my personal favorite! 2) it‘s cliche but Santa is my favorite. He was one of my imaginary best friends growing up 😅. I don‘t really know who to tag so if you would like to be included please let me know in the comments.

DarkMina You‘re welcome! ❤️ 2y
TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 😊 2y

I will work on answering tags soon. I‘ve been exhausted the last couple days so I don‘t have much to give. Be kind to your retail workers if you have to go out. We‘re all miserable. On the bright side, my boss gave me this book of poetry written by his niece and he has her sign it. She wrote a very sweet message inside. It‘s one of the most thoughtful gifts I‘ve ever received. If you have Instagram give her a follow! #2AMthoughts #makenziecampbell

Bookwormjillk Hang in there 2y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Good luck! Retail at Christmas isn‘t a picnic in a good year and this definitely isn‘t a good year. Wishing you well mannered customers who know how to wear a mask and really excellent nights of sleep! 2y
DarkMina I used to work in a restaurant years ago. It can be difficult during the busy times of year if people aren‘t nice. I have a great appreciation for people in the service industry because of it. 2y

MB1994 @Bookwormjillk thank you! 2y
MB1994 @thegirlwiththelibrarybag thank you. This has definitely been a trying year. The area I live in is strongly against masks and it‘s very frustrating. 2y
MB1994 @DarkMina if everyone had to work some sort of customer service job most people would be a lot kinder for sure. 2y
DarkMina @MB1994 Agreed! 2y
RaimeyGallant What a lovely gesture. 2y

The Red Scrolls of Magic | Cassandra Clare, Wesley Chu

Cherry and I have moved on to The Red Scrolls of Magic! As much as I love Malec I‘m a little skeptical for this one, I must admit. I hope to finish this by the end of this week but it is my birthday week so I might be a little busy! 🎈What are you currently reading? I hope everyone is having a fabulous start to their week 😘 #CassandraClare #shadowhunters #currentlyreading #malec #theredscrollsofmagic #theeldestcurses #yafantasy

QuietlyLaura Happy Birthday week! I hope it's great! 🎉🎂📚 I'm currently reading A Deal With The Elf King by Elise Kova and really enjoying it. 2y
MB1994 @QuietlyLaura thank you! Oooh I always drool over her books online but they are so pricey I always back out. But they are so gorgeous! 2y
BarbaraJean Awww... sweet kitty! Happy birthday week to you! I‘m currently reading Scarlet, a retelling of Robin Hood that changes the setting to Wales. This is the second book, and I‘m really enjoying it. I‘m also halfway through an Agatha Christie audiobook, Murder in the Mews. 2y
MB1994 @BarbaraJean she is such a good kitty! And thank you! Oooh I‘ve heard of Scarlet. My aunt really loves the author and I love Robin Hood so that‘s been on my TBR list for a long time. 2y

The Hobbit | J.R.R. Tolkien
post image

Listening to The Hobbit while I clean my apartment. I love the idea of audiobooks but I struggle with keeping my mind from wandering. Does anyone else like audiobooks or do you prefer physical books? #thehobbit #jrrtolkien #bilbobaggins #audiobook #currentlylisteningto

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I like both, and audiobooks often depend on the subject & narrator and what else you are trying to do at the same time. They tend to work good for me for driving, coloring, and laundry day. 2y

MB1994 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa no matter what I do my mind wanders which leads me to have to rewind a lot. But I love the ability to multitask with them so I keep trying. 2y
DarkMina I like audiobooks because it allows you to multitask. I honestly prefer physical books or my kindle. 2y
Smarkies Audiobooks work for me with certain books vs others. I use it for cozy mysteries as those are lighter. Also for more contemporary YA books. I occasionally use it for non fiction that I would like to get a taste for. Sometimes they click sometimes they don't but I find that ok as I can multitask. I don't mind that my mind wanders occasionally 2y
MB1994 @DarkMina that‘s definitely the appeal for me. I like the idea of taking back some of the time I waste doing chores or working. 2y
MB1994 @Smarkies I found I do better with books I‘ve read before. That way I don‘t freak out as much if I do lose focus. 2y
MaGoose I don't listen to audio books as much as I used to. I used to listen on my 50-minute commute to and from work; but I've been retired for about five years now and have gotten out of the habit of listening to them. I have audio books on Audible and Chirp, but haven't started listening. I guess I like physical books the best, yet, over audio and ebooks. 2y

I didn‘t quite know how to tag @DarkMina so I hope I did this right! Thanks for the tag! 1) Washington, USA. 2) The Blue Castle. 3) Shadowhunters series. 4) I don‘t have a favorite movie. 5) Parks and Recreation. 6) Dave Matthews Band 7) Pink. 8) Fantasy. 9) A grocery store. 10) A chihuahua, a rabbit, a guinea pig, and 4 cats. One cat only has three legs! I‘m tagging anyone who wants to do this! :)

MB1994 I don‘t know why the crop came out wrong. Clearly I‘m challenged! 2y
DarkMina You tagged me right. I am still figuring out how to do everything myself. Liked your answers. Love the Shadow hunter series. That is cool you have a variety of pets. Thanks for playing! 2y

Ghosts of the Shadow Market | Kelly Link, Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman
post image

Hello all! Let‘s talk reading goals. I‘m reading book 48 of 50 and I‘m feeling pretty content with where I‘m at, goal wise. I am enjoying Ghosts of the Shadowmarket and I have mixed feelings as I draw near to the end of the Shadowhunter universe. I have 3 books left and then I‘m all caught up until Chain of Iron. How is everyone else doing with their goals? #shadowhunters #cassandraclare #readinggoals #currentreads #clary #jace #jem #tessa

DarkMina I love the Shadowhunter universe. I still have a couple more left to read. 2y
MB1994 @DarkMina it‘s my favorite! 2y

Crinoline_Laphroaig Welcome to Litsy! So how do you feel about Jane Austen? If you're interested we have great Austen Readalong group called #Pemberlittens. 2y
MB1994 @Crinoline_Laphroaig sorry for the late reply! I wanted to get familiar with the app and I wasn‘t sure how often I was going to use it. I would definitely be interested! 2y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @MB1994 No Worries! Just pop over to the #Pemberlittens tag. We just finished Chapter a Day read of Northanger Abbey. January will be reading any Northanger Abbey retellings. February & March will be the Chapter a Day Readalong of Mansfield Park. It's a fun group. Join in if you're interested. 2y
MB1994 @Crinoline_Laphroaig thanks for letting me know. Mansfield Park is the only work by Austen I don‘t like so I have to decide if I‘m up for giving it another go. 2y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @MB1994 I get that. Mansfield Park is my least favorite. Hoping the group fun of Memes and discussion will make it less of a slog. 2y
