Sundays are for open houses and catching up on reading ... Love this life! 🏡 📚 #sundayfunday #readon #realestate

AutumnRLS Love Rachel Caine! 6h
Buechersuechtling Lovely picture … ❣️Maybe I‘m peculiar or play the women – but it‘s not that because of “open houses” suddenly complete strangers appear in your flat wanting to chitchat and have a tea, is it❓ I don‘t consider myself to be asocial but I like my privacy. 🤭 – Anyway, I hope you had a wonderful Sunday. 😄 5h

I'm from a family of readers but we all read different genres so it's hard to have in depth nerdy conversations about our reads, you know what I mean? I found Litsy only several months ago and I'm so happy I did. People to talk to about books you love and hate is a beautiful thing! #litsy #litsycommunity #appreciate

I have a minimum of 4 books in rotation all the time. Except this time. I'm flying through it, everything else is on hold. I'm dreading that it will eventually end but at the same time I need resolution. I need to see the Capitol defeated, and truthfully, I need to see Panem come together and rage against oppression, poverty and abuse of power. Rage on, districts. Rage. On. #teamnosleep for #catchingfire 🔥

RebL I want to read all the books like this, but it doesn't always happen that way. 3d
Scochrane26 This was my favorite series for awhile (besides HP, of course). And even though I was in my 30‘s. My sister & I even went to a couple of midnight showings. I do think the movies were done well, esp compared to other series‘ adaptations. Check them out when you get done w/ books. 3d
ReadingOverSleeping @RebL you're so right. It's been a while since I was sucked in like this! 3d

ReadingOverSleeping @Scochrane26 I'm 31 and enjoying this so much! I also loved HP, I've been looking for something to get passionate about a series since then. This came very very close! 3d
Scochrane26 @ReadingOverSleeping I don‘t think I‘ve read any other ya or adult series that I‘ve loved as much as hunger games & HP. Don‘t read divergent, the 3rd book is a travesty & ruins the first 2. 2d
BooknerdsLife @Scochrane26 Totally agree with you 😄 especially about Divergent!!! 🤨 And I still love the Hunger Games & HP after all these years! 2d

I never thought I'd enjoy a dystopian novel so much but I'm sucked into this story. Vicious, twisted, intense, and thought provoking with love stories in between - family, friendship and of course a love triangle. I'm already halfway through the second! #teamnosleep for #hungergames #thehungergames

I find myself rooting for Katniss, but realizing you're rooting for the death of other children when you do makes this book heartbreaking. What a twisted world. Please tell me this ends well! #hungergames

LibrarianRyan Do you mean book one ends well, book two, book three, or the series? I will say this, it all ends realistically. Which I much needed after the endings of HP, PJ, and others. 7d

ReadingOverSleeping @LibrarianRyan Halfway through book one currently! I loved HP, still do to this day - those deaths sucked. Ugh, this is going to suck isn't it? Lol 6d
ReadingOverSleeping @LiterarySloth I'm halfway through the first and it's so addicting! I wonder what the prequel will cover?! 6d

LibrarianRyan @ReadingOverSleeping ummmm. I didn‘t think it sucked. I think it was ... tough but expected. 6d
Reggie I was okay with the endings to book 1 and 2 to this series. They kept me wanting to come back. But the 3rd one left me in a funk for a couple of days. I just felt like it was the first time I really felt an author set me up to hurt me. Enjoy. 6d
ReadingOverSleeping @LibrarianRyan so far I'm satisfied with the ending of book 1. It was sad to see Rue die, that was awful. 5d
ReadingOverSleeping @Reggie I have a feeling I'm going to be sad after this one lol. I just finished off book 1, so far so good! Vicious 5d
LibrarianRyan @ReadingOverSleeping I was with one person who went to the movie without reading the book and didn‘t get the big deal about Rue. And the rest of us were like yeahhhhh it was a very big deal. 5d
ReadingOverSleeping @LibrarianRyan I'm glad she's still a symbol in book 2. I watched the first movie and it was so disappointing not seeing their bond grow strong instead of just throwing it together 5d
LibrarianRyan @ReadingOverSleeping the first movie is soooooo bad. I am very glad they changed directors for the rest of them. They are not as good as the books, but they are passable. 5d
ReadingOverSleeping @LibrarianRyan going for the second movie this weekend after finishing book 2! I see what you mean by it being more realistic. Collins doesn't shy away from killing people off does she? 😮😮 4d

I really didn't grasp the gravity of social media kids face these days. This is beyond a coming of age story - it touches on so many topics including relationships, pressure of school, depression, bullying and forgiveness. This book is important. I recommend everyone read it because it can open the door to so many conversations that may be uncomfortable for people to have with their loved ones. Definitely #teamnosleep for #oneofusislying

Johanna414 I feel for kids today - they can‘t turn it off. Social media is the cause of so many issues and so much anxiety among my students. 1w
ReadingOverSleeping @Johanna414 Facebook came out my first year of college and back then it wasn't the animal it is now. And it's difficult because it's unrealistic to tell them not to use it, but there's a real problem here. I can't imagine being bullied at school and then coming home to a social media ish storm. It's heartbreaking! 1w

I really enjoyed this book. It's a story of how far you'll go for family, a need for connection and figuring out if is there a limit to how far you'll go to protect loved ones. This story is raw, and learning about their abusive past with their father can be heartbreaking. It's a short read but still makes characters come alive. #teamnosleep for #mysisterisaserialkiller

This was a slow read for me. I found myself skimming through the very vivid and disturbing details through the first half of the book. The focus on the police work is very interesting - it's fascinating to see how they captured this monster. Many people question why it took decades to catch Rader, this book will explain all of that. Overall, it was a good read but definitely not for the faint of heart. #btk #truecrime

This book is wild. It's about a therapist on the quest of helping a patient accused of killing her husband - she has stopped speaking completely. From start to finish this book keeps you engaged in trying to figure out what happened that night of the murder. The climax is not all that surprising but the book is so we'll written, it'll still spark something in you - sadness and disgust. #teamnosleep for #thesilentpatient

I'm torn between this one. I really hated how these two women became such good friends so quickly. It felt forced and unrealistic but the premise was interesting so I kept going. I no sympathy for Kat and found her irritating and childish. There was twist at the end I wasn't expecting, making it more tolerable. The ending was a little too neat. #teamsleep for #theaccident

This book takes you inside the "perfect" lives of suburban wives and what really happens in their personal lives vs. what they display to the world. There's turmoil, but there's also a lot of love.

Eker uses real examples with a mix of humor to deliver his points. He's motivational and does make you reflect on your own habits to see where you can improve. With that said, I think he can be a bit harsh at times and the book was too long. Many concepts are repetitive and could definitely be condensed. Because it does offer insightful information, I'll opt for #teamnosleep for this one.

Sounds like a basic quote, but it foreshadows of events to come. This is well researched, thought out and written. I did find the killer to be predictable and the back story was a bit of a stretch for me, but I still found myself not being able to put the book down.

Buechersuechtling That‘s a real good question and I shamingly kind of stick a bit with your quote. Also, I think that @JanuarieTimewalker13 is right. We often don‘t know what we got until we lose it. I‘d like enough money to keep my life standard. Good health for me and the ones I love. A long life for my parents. And enough friends and lovely people around me to never feel lonely. This so much more when I will have gotten old, really old. 2mo

So grateful for this recommendation - thank you! Started it yesterday, and I'm hooked. Like true Karin Slaughter fashion, she sucks you in immediately. The crime is definitely heinous and it was uncomfortable reading the details - I took a break in between. So far it's obvious she has done her research before writing - the plot and the investigation are interesting and believable. Looking forward to losing sleep for this one!

I have a knack for predicting conclusions in books and movies (the only one who can tolerate watching thrillers with me is my poor husband) ... But Karin Slaughter has a knack for putting me on my ass. I thought I figured out the mystery early on, but I only had it half right. The #twists and #turns will keep you reading. The #love of family will make your heart full, the #tragedies will make you weep. #teamnosleep for #thegooddaughter

Karin Slaughter has a way with words - she writes dialogue that fits with the scenes, but it's extremely relatable to life. Another one of my favorites is, "Don't kick a fresh turd on a hot day" ... Sounds so crass but isn't it true? When ish hits the fan, isn't it better to let your mind catch up to the circumstances and then react instead of jumping to conclusions?

What do you think? #thegooddaughter #quotes

One of my favorite parts of this book so far! From Pikesville, GA, Sam is a practicing lawyer settled in NYC. Tragedy strikes bringing her and her NYC ways home. During an arraignment, the judge disgustedly asked her what she was wearing (described as a professional outfit worn for court in NY without issues), she responds, "Armani." I love badass women.

What book/"scene" that made you admire a woman's sass and badassery? #strongwomen #dontsaveme

Andrea4 My God, so timely! Was just telling a friend that some dude told me he wished he could make everything all better for me and my gut reaction was "no! I dont need saving- I can make it better myself!" 2mo
Andrea4 Also most recent read with badass woman- The tenant of wildfell hall. When she stands up to all the men jeering at her & demands the one explain the truth of the situation and publicly shames them all! 2mo

"I‘ve got to figure out before I die whether I want to be happy or I want to be right" ...

How do you feel about this quote?

For me personally, (as quoted by SarcasmOnly) I'm at a stage in my life where I keep myself out of arguments. Even if you tell me 1+1=5, you're absolutely correct, enjoy!

#happiness or #alwaysright

Buechersuechtling Me too, I am in a phase of my life where I choose happiness. Because nowadays I feel you‘re so quickly pulled into (bitter, mean) “black-and-white” and/or “I-am-right-and-you-are-wrong”-arguments even though you just wanted to share your point of view. But you get a shitstorm in return. And, additionally, does being right and/or letting everyone know that I definitely know it all make me happy❓No, it doesn‘t. 2mo
JacqMac It seems that people can‘t disagree anymore without bringing hate into it. I prefer to just walk away, too. It‘s really not worth my sanity. I do think it‘s really sad that we can‘t share opinions without fearing being personally attacked. 2mo
ReadingOverSleeping I agree with both of you 100%. Today, it's difficult to have a healthy debate someone feeling attacked. And it's sad because that's how you learn another's perspective, it's how you learn to see the other side of things - but most aren't willing to listen. I call it preserving my peace. If it doesn't educate or bring you joy, let it go! 2mo

Mehso-so

Incredibly slow start, picks up the pace for a third of the book before flat lining again. The first book in the series engrossed you into Joe's world. You found yourself in a love/hate relationship with all the characters - perfectly flawed and perfectly human. Hidden Bodies felt so forced and unrealistic that I never connected with any of the characters and the story continued to be far fetched and unbelievable. #teamsleep for #hiddenbodies

"I've never tried cocaine before ... I shake. But maybe that's just the feeling you get when you're next to a brand new corpse." ... Joe Goldberg, ladies and gentlemen. A #twisted, #murderous #manchild who can't tell if he's shaking from drug use or killing people ?

I read The Fifth Child for school like most of you. I absolutely loved the book. It was tragic but it was a lovely read. For Ben, In The World, it was completely opposite. I powered through every night, reading a few pages to find the same characters I fell in love with. Instead, I found myself reading about an ugly world, who is so unkind to people like Ben. I feel like he deserved more & deserved better. #teamsleep on this one ... #disappointing

I devoured You and was really looking forward to this sequel. I'm finding the beginning forced and I'm having a hard time getting into it. He's just getting there ... Give it a shot or let it go? #toDNFornottoDNF #hiddenbodies

Hunsakermountain I thought it was just okay. 3mo

I've seen family (husband & father) and friends start up new businesses. The ones that saw long term successes were the ones that follow this principle. Should we go around and maximize our spending? Absolutely not. But where it makes sense, invest in yourself and pay attention to the return! #ROI #invest #smallbusiness

What do you think about this principle?

SqueakyChu I like it. I think it‘s a principle that can carry over to many things beside real estate and business investments. (edited) 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @SqueakyChu I agree. Relationships as well - give it your best and you'll enjoy years and years of a strong bond. What a great concept! 3mo
SqueakyChu @ReadingOverSleeping I like it about purchasing items as well. Think about the duration of use and quality of what you‘re purchasing, and stop using “lowest price” as the bottom line! (edited) 3mo

Love this take on #affirmations vs #declarations ... Do you agree?

LaLecture That‘s interesting! But I still feel like affirmations are important, psychologically. I think the trick might be to mix declarations and (realistic) affirmations. Declare a goal you haven‘t a reached yet and then make an affirmation about why you have all that it takes to reach that goal. E.g. declare you will get a promotion and then say that you will reach that goal because you‘re clever, hard working, etc. 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @LaLecture That's a wonderful idea. It's a healthy mixture of both keeping you focused on a new goal and the confidence to achieve! 3mo
Tex2Flo I agree with affirmation vs. declaration. I, too, have the little BS noise going off when I state something that isn‘t happening. 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Tex2Flo Yes, and I would hate to turn that off because that's your BS radar. Maybe the point is to just find something that works for you, that you believe in and that will make the difference. Mind over matter :) 3mo

I am finding myself seeking #businessbooks lately and enjoying them! What genre did you think would bore you to death but you ended loving?

I'm changing career paths 10 years into my professional life so I've been picking up different types of business books to inspire me now being self-employed fresh out of Corporate America. I just started this and I'm engrossed - he provides a fresh perspective on finances and how you see/feel about money.

flying_monkeys Congrats on escaping the Corporate world! 3mo
booklahoma Congratulations on making that big step into a new way of living! I left my corporate job in 2017 and I am so peaceful and much happier😀. 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @flying_monkeys & @booklahoma thank you so much! Always happy to hear success stories because it is nerve wrecking but boy, am I already at peace! Feels like I sucked the poison out of my life ... Not to be dramatic or anything 😂 3mo
SqueakyChu My husband finally quit his job to start his own business years ago after his health insurance was taken away by the company for which he worked. We‘ve never looked back. It was the best business decision he ever made! Good luck to you! 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @SqueakyChu I'm a week in and it's long days, and hard word but wow, is the perspective different. I am so happy because every thing I do is solely for my family and myself! What an amazing motivator! I'm so happy to hear that it has worked out for you guys! It's comforting to see because it's still a little scary 😬😂 3mo

Like many, I watched the Netflix series first. I enjoyed it so much, I knew I had to read the book.

I found myself laughing out loud in some parts, nearly biting my nails in others. This book will envelope you in Joe's twisted little mind trying to figure out how his rational works (I mean seriously, the dude is sick AF) and you'll find yourself in a love/hate relationship of your own with Beck.

Cannot wait for the sequel to arrive home! 📚 ❤️

Sweettartlaura Treat yourself & listen to these as audiobooks. You‘ll be riveted 😳 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Sweettartlaura I will definitely try that!! Thank you! 3mo

What an important reminder to NOT be the type of person that's so easily distracted by what they think they want, that they unappreciate what they already have. #appreciatewhatyouhave & #begrateful 🖤
