So far I‘m loving this adventure!

‘Hold on,‘ said Chief Farrell. ‘I‘m duty officer this week and I want to see if the fire alarms go off.‘

They didn‘t.

‘That‘s good, isn‘t it?‘ I said.

He sighed. ‘No, it just means they‘ve taken the batteries out again.‘

This really was my sort of place.

I listened to the audiobook, which was beautifully narrated by the author, on a long drive to the Berkshires. It is a nice summer read, albeit a bit uneven, like the story won‘t stick with me for long afterwards. I haven‘t ready any other books by Joshilyn Jackson, but I love Southern authors so will try another one.

Fleishman Is in Trouble: A Novel | Taffy Brodesser-Akner
Panpan

Taffy Brodesser-Akner is a talented writer, but you wouldn't know it from this book. I listened to the audiobook - all 14 hours of it - & not once did I find any of the characters appealing. I kept listening because it got good reviews, at times could be insightful & I wanted to know what happened to his wife. However, despite my hope that it would get better, it dragged on & on & ultimately fell flat.

An absolutely perfect afternoon with the family at Walden Pond. #johnlecarre

Listened to the above-tagged book while spending the day in my flowerbeds & vegetable garden. I‘m not sure if I actually like any of the characters but the plot is intriguing.

This wasn‘t my favorite ChLo book; I liked Roomies much better. This one just felt sad. What‘s your favorite ChLo book?

Roomies | Christina Lauren

Because, sometimes you just want a deliciously steamy love story involving a sweet Irish lad.

The author must have spent a decade researching this book. It was so interesting & dense that I was grateful I read it on my kindle so I could look up words as I read it. Had I known what a challenge it would be I might not have picked it up when I did. It was a fascinating glimpse into 15th century Europe & the Jewish experience. An incredible story. Definitely read it, but make sure you have the brain power available because it‘s rich & complex!

Lynnsoprano This has been one of my favorite books ever. 3w

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
Pickpick

Difficult to read but impossible to put down. Educated is a powerful book about love and family and survival. It‘s a powerful story about a bold woman who understood the only way to escape was to educate herself.

RaimeyGallant Loved this book. And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. @LitsyWelcomeWagon 2mo

The Unhoneymooners | Christina Lauren

The “Unhoneymooners” is a cute romcom - didn‘t blow my hair back, but it was a light, amusing “listen” while I puttered in the garden.
