I haven't been posting on here as much because it's taking me a LOT longer to finish each book now that I've gotten into Brandon Sanderson. So here is an interlude (iykyk) of my little reading buddies. Mars Bars has taken up a new habit of taking this donut bed with her everywhere, even on our couch.
Winston refuses to sit next to her when she acts like this, so he curls up in a ball right under my feet.🤍

I loved book 1 so much that I bought book 2 right away...and the rest of this series (including pre-ordering book 5), the rest of Mistborn, the short stories and novellas of the Cosmere, Elantris, Warbreaker, Yumi...I feel so behind in the fandom and I just want to marathon read alllll of it like yesterday. 📚

Rachel.Rencher @BarkingMadRead Do it! I'm so shocked by how much I enjoyed it. I've never been into the fantasy genre but this sucked me in from the start. It was 1,000 pages and not one was wasted. 2w

What books have changed your perspective on a genre? I've never been a big fantasy reader until my husband challenged me to read Brandon Sanderson. I'm over 500 pages into this tome, and I've already ordered book two. This is such a rich book with its descriptions of a made up religion, political framework, and some of the best characters I've ever read. And I've heard it doesn't even really pick up until page 700.

This book was CUTE! If you're a fan of "You've Got Mail", you'll love this one. There's not-so-friendly business competition, an online meet cute, and a community that rallies together in the face of hate crimes.

Side note: Does anyone else's Litsy app completely stop working a few times a day? I went into the app store to update it, but I can't find it anymore. No biggie, just wondering! ??

Eh, the best part of this book was the cover. I thought it was about 100 pages too long and the author couldn't seem to figure out which storyline she wanted to focus on. I liked the characters well enough until I found out the scheme that they were up to near the end. Idk, I'm just surprised this book has a 100% rating on Litsy. Maybe I'm just in a bad mood or too picky. 😂

Rachel.Rencher Ope, well it doesn't have a 100% rating anymore. 😬 I guess only a few people had rated it, lol! 1mo

I have ONE bookshelf totally styled and set up! 🤣 Lucas and I have lived in our house for an entire year and it took until now to unpack all of the book boxes. My big motivator was that I have plumbers coming in next week and they have to demo the wall where the boxes were stacked. The rest of the shelves are double stacked and there's absolutely 0 organization to them. I'm looking forward to getting more shelves but until then, this is a win! 🥳

This was a cute, quick, & witty romcom about a romance screenwriter who uses her divorce as inspiration leading to her big break in Hollywood. There's even a meet cute with the leading actor, who was named sexiest man alive. 😏 It's great if you want something a little cheesy.

Lucas bet me I wouldn't read this whole book, so you know what that means...
I know that it's recommended to start with Mistborn, but I don't have it and my library has a waiting list on holds. I've literally never read an epic high fantasy (closest I've come is LotR), so this is an interesting challenge.
I've seen that I just need to trust the author that it will all come together because the start is purposely obtuse since I'm starting here.

Ruthiella I have a friend who thinks this trilogy is better than the Mistborn trilogy. Good luck! 👍 1mo

I am such a mood reader that I have to have 5 books ready for when I finish my current read (tagged book). If you couldn't tell, I am LOVING having a laid back summer vacation. It's the first one where I haven't had to move to a new apartment/house or teach summer school, and it's really making the insanity I deal with at school all year worth it.
So, I'm going to go enjoy my 2nd cold brew of the day on my porch and read my little heart out. 🤍📚

Sorry to Disrupt the Peace | Patty Yumi Cottrell

Mehso-so

Honestly, I was so back and forth on this book. The story had SO much potential. It was largely character-driven, but I've never hated a character more. I couldn't decide if it was satire or a commentary on mental illness. I stuck with it even though the narrator's voice grated on every nerve because I was hoping for some incredible development, but noooope. There was also some troubling non-chalance toward suicide. 2⭐️

Hi Littens! Question...I ran into a hiccup while working on our built-ins. Our walls are plaster with wood boards and rock behind them, so hanging anything load bearing has been a nightmare as the plaster just crumbles away. We've decided free-standing bookshelves are probably best until we can afford a contractor, but we want something that's like 84" tall and has an open back. (Noooo IKEA). Where have you found shelves that you loved?

TheBookHippie I love mine but they have backs and are anchored to my plastered no crumbling walls. HOWEVER My friend has this https://a.co/d/4zXHjsj for her art books and art. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo
TieDyeDude I've had my ladder bookshelf for years (something similar to this https://www.amazon.com/Maydear-Trapezoid-Bookshelf-Storage-Shelves/dp/B09657728F.... I think the wide base is more stable if you're not anchoring, and I have some big art books that only fit on the extra large bottom shelf. 1mo

Upgrade: A Novel | Blake Crouch

Clearly on a Blake Crouch kick lately. This one had a slow start, but I'm about a 3rd of the way in now and I'm really enjoying it. Upgrade explores what might happen if gene editing advances and someone is accidentally infected with a viral package that turns them into a super human. It almost feels like I'm reading a backstory of the Hulk if he also had the brains of Ironman.

Blake Crouch definitely knows how to leave you on a cliffhanger! I saw that he's "open" to writing a 4th book, but that epilogue made me need another part to Ethan's story.
Also, having lived in Idaho for 25 years, it really is an apt setting for the last town on earth. The world building was incredible. I soared through the last two books in less than a day.

We're done painting the living room! I have no idea how to build the bookshelves that I want, but we're going to try to draw up some plans and begin next week. 😁😁
Side note: I vividly remember downloading Litsy when I had just moved to the cheapest apartment in Boise, Idaho where I'd made bookshelves out of scrap wood and cinderblocks, and now we're looking at putting built-ins in our house in Nebraska. Life is crazy. 🤍

TheBookgeekFrau Your living room looks beautiful! 😍 Can't wait to see the shelves you decide on 🤩 Just a small idea side note: a few years ago I needed some extra shelves in a pinch while staging my house for sale. I stacked up a bunch of wooden crates from a craft store and thought with a little stain or paint they'd be perfect permanent shelves. Let me know if you want me to find a pic. 1mo

This book would've been better off as a short story or a novella. It was an interesting concept, but it dragged and felt super repetitive. Instead of packing an Atwood level punch as promised in the blurbs, it just felt bleak and miserable.

Hi Littens! I need your decorating advice.
On the left is our living room, currently being painted yellow. On the right is a screenshot of bookshelves that will be built over that wall.
My question is...what color should the shelves be? Should we stain the wood, leave it bare, or paint it? I'm tempted to try to match the color of our trim, but idk how close I'll get and I don't want clashing wood tones. Should we go bold and paint it blue? Help!

Rachel.Rencher For context, we have light grey furniture and we're going to try to pull greens and blues into our decor to brighten it up. We also have an accent wall made of leaves (yes, literal leaves) that is green and cannot be taken down. 😂 The charms of a 100 year old house, lol! 1mo
TEArificbooks I agree your don‘t want too different wood tones. I would paint the shelves yellow to match the wall or white to soften the space. 1mo
RowReads1 My first thought was to match the color of the trim. Maybe a tiny bit lighter or with a similar color stain that would allow for some wood variation. 1mo
See All 10 Comments
Kimberlone I would go for dark stain that matches the wood trim around the doorway 1mo
RaeLovesToRead I think painting them white would look good. Dark shelves would match best, but the space would be quite dark. White would make the yellow pop and wouldn't clash with the trim. 1mo
RaeLovesToRead I'm trying to imagine the shelves as baby blue... that might be cool 1mo
TheSpineView Love blue with yellow. 💙💛💙 1mo

This book should have come with some warnings. There's some pretty explicit descriptions of child sexual abuse in multiple parts throughout the book. I think it makes sense to the character development as it goes back and forth in time to show this woman's relationship with her mom, husband, and another man, but yeah...warning for those of you who haven't read it!

This was a well-written, gritty, and hopeful account of a football player's descent into addiction and back again. On a personal note, it's one of the only books that's helped me understand why rehab has never worked on my sister. I don't say that for sympathy, but instead because I've never read such a truthful account of what it's like to be an addict. Often times it's just romanticized without sharing the rest, and that's not the case here.

The Every: A Novel | Dave Eggers
post image
Mehso-so

This book (sequel to Eggers' The Circle) took me a looong time to finish. It's a dystopian story that imagines a world where Meta and Amazon become this massive tech monopoly and take over surveillance, medicine, consumption, and basically every aspect of one's life. The amount of tech advancements described in the book was a bit overwhelming, but also mirrors reality in a sense. I don't know, I just had a hard time with this one.

marleed I was in the minority being underwhelmed by The Circle because I thought too many social issues were touched on. It‘s a pet peeve of mine, and I prefer when just a few 3-5 social issues are introduced and focused upon. 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @marleed I agree, like I get that it's a snowball effect that they're trying to capture, but it made the book far too long. There were too many characters and ideas to remember. Also the ending felt way too unbelievable... 2mo
KathyWheeler @marleed Oddly, The Circle is a book that I liked a lot when I read it, but like less and less when I think about it. And the movie just cemented that view. This new book sounds very similar to it. 2mo
See All 8 Comments
marleed @KathyWheeler That has happened to me several times. The one that immediately comes to mind is the tagged. I loved it while reading (fictional family dramas make my upbringing seem normal 🤪) Then I heard an interview where the author defends her fictional father and the fictional wife who stood by her man - fictional kids be damned. It altered my entire reading experience. I can‘t see the book without cringing now, or read more from her. 2mo
KathyWheeler @marleed She defended that father and the wife? I thought the whole point was how awful they were! 2mo

CatLass007 Rachel, it‘s good to know that you‘re finally being taken seriously. Having a doctor who knows what‘s going on with your health and educating yourself as much as possible is important. Litsy is a supportive and caring community. It‘s good that you know that sharing here is safe. And it‘s good that you have such an attentive nurse in your pup. 4mo
