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 🔥
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
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
Not mad at this reading nook for the next few days 😎🌴🏖️
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 loved this read. It is not like most self help business books, Seip actually gives you ways to practice and implement suggestions instead of just repeating you can do it over and over again. I especially loved the memory exercises, they really work, and pointers on how to speed up your reading. Highly recommend this book it you're looking to take it to the next level. #teamnosleep for #trainyourbrain
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. I loved this book, I was engrossed by it, and finished it in 3 days. Reading about Moriarty's childhood made me connect to the material much more. Needless to say #teamnosleep for #biglittlelies
Picked myself up a little something from the library today 💁 ... Definitely less intense than what I'm used to so far but I love the premise that someone has been murdered and we don't know who! Anyone else read this? What did you think? #biglittlelies
I didn't want the story to end. I spent most of the book trying to piece it all together, completely engrossed with how this story was going to come together. This is a story of really evil and cruel wrongs but there's also triumph, hope and doing what is right centered around a badass strong woman. #teamnosleep for #piecesofher
I just can't. I tried so hard, gave it 50 pages, it was an interesting concept to hear this story from a child's perspective but between all the names for everything in the room to the booboo's, I can't keep going. Sorry - #teamsleep for #room
This book will definitely suck you into Rachel Holloway's life. This really isn't a "Whodunnit" ... That part is fairly predictable once you get going, but it's more about the journey of a woman coming to terms with her past and facing her fears. It's definitely worth the read - Natalie Barelli has gained a fan! #teamnosleep for #missingmolly
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.
What's your favorite activity when you play hooky?
The reason why I love this book is beyond just business and financial enlightenment. It exposes you to so much more - enforcing positive attributes you already have and learning new life lessons. What a beautiful way to say be happy for one another! Your time will come ❤️ ... Applies a lot to life in general, doesn't it? #business #positivethoughts
Picked up Room today from the library. I've heard mixed reviews, but the premise is too interesting to pass up. Any fans? #room
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. Blindsighted is gruesome so I will be taking a hiatus from Karin Slaughter for a bit - let's see how long it lasts. #teamnosleep for #blindsighted
"The number one reason most people don't get what they want is that they don't know what they want" ... Happy Friday ❤️ ... Let's kick it off with positive vibes. My primary goal in life is health & happiness ... That's what I want. I'll work hard to be successful, constantly work on building and maintaining personal relationships, keep traveling, keep reading, most of all keep believing and keep loving. What do you want? #businessbooks #happiness
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?

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
"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!

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 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
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?
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.
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! 📚 ❤️
