One Of Us Is Lying | Karen McManus

I finally found my book stack for Dewey‘s Readathon, which starts tomorrow 🤓📖

blurb

post image

I love the new house editions of the Harry Potter books and I‘m super thrilled about the switching between designs. I think it‘ll look much better than just pure black or pure green 🤓😌🐍🐍

Do you guys like the house editions? 😊

Leah on the Offbeat | Becky Albertalli

Leah on the Offbeat is probably the book I‘m most excited about reading this year, so far, which makes it an obvious choice to read when #deweysreadathon begins tomorrow 🙈🤓

I have a stack that contains a ridiculous amount of books, but it‘s good to have variety, so you can stop a book and start another if you don‘t like the first 😊📖

I bought this book earlier in February and I‘m super excited to read it. It sounds right up my alley, so I have high expectations 🙈

Here‘s to hoping it‘s as good as I expect 🤓
Have you guys read it? 🤔📖
Also can we just appreciate the beautiful cover! 😍

I read Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda back in January and I just fell in love with Simon, so I had to have the special edition hardback. I‘m the kind of person who collects multiple copies of books I really enjoy 🙈🤓

Do you guys collect several editions of books you really enjoy? 📖

1. Hardback, but kindle ebooks are a close second 🧐
2. European size 40/41, UK size 7/8 and US size 9/10.
3. Kanel Gifflar or sesame crackers 😍
4. Criminal Minds or CSI 🤓
5. I have no idea who to tag, so if you wanna do this then I tag you 😂

“That‘s what we do. We walk a tightrope every day. Getting out the door is a tightrope. Going grocery shopping is a tightrope. Socializing is a tightrope. Things that most people consider to be normal, daily parts of life are the very things we fear and struggle with the most, and yet here we are, moving forward anyway. That‘s not weak.”

“As a side note, don‘t you think everyone should have to come out? Why is straight the default? Everyone should have to declare one way or another, and it should be this big awkward thing whether you‘re straight, gay, bi or whatever. I‘m just saying.”

Can't believe it's been 4 months since my last post! I just kinda forgot. I actually kinda stopped using a lot of time on SoMe, so there's that... But back to this post. I participated in the October edition of Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. It's always fun and milk and honey is probably the best book out of the 4 books I finished! It's just mindblowing!

So I finally decided on my book stack for #deweysreadathon this weekend and it contains 6 books: ACOTAR, More Happy Than Not, City of Bones, Girl ❤️ Girl, Letter to a Young Poet and The Stolen White Elephant. I'm 100% sure I won't finish them all, but I couldn't limit myself 🙈🤓 Are you participating in Dewey's 24 hour Readathon? ☺️

I bought the whole set last year and I have yet to read them, but I will hopefully get around to do it this year. What are your thoughts on the books? Have you read them? Did you like them? I'm really curious to hear other people's opinions 🤓

ReadingSusan I love the first one, really, really love the second one and the last one is just ok. I have read this series four times which isn't that usual for me. 6y
Mariesen @ReadingSusan Yeah I've heard the 3rd book isn't up to par with the other two. Still excited to read them and I just love the editions I got 🙈 6y

I bought this book, because I got sucked into the tv-show that's lightly based on the TMI books. I'm really excited to read it, but first I need to finish the 5 books I'm already reading 😂 I might add it to my #readathon list and see what happens 🤔

So one of my reading goals this year is to read more classics. I bought the famous Penguin 80th anniversary box with 80 classics, but I haven't read any of them yet... I've also started collecting the new ones Penguin released. So here's to hoping I'll get around to reading these 🤓 #penguinclassics #classics

This is a free copy I got at a book fair I attended last year. I haven't read the 2 previous books so I guess I'll have to start there and work my way up to this one. I'm excited for the series. It seems really interesting and has had good reviews 🤓☺
