I enjoyed this more than The Handmaid's Tale - the ending always bothered me. This book gives you an actual conclusion. True story: I keep writing a lengthy review and deleting it so there's no spoilers 🙊. Just go read the book! #teamnosleep for #thetestaments #thehandmaidstail

The Testaments | Margaret Atwood

I'm generally a happy positive person. I got into a petty situation with an associate I didn't provoke and I REALLY kept it together, I want a cookie for that. But since then I've come across 3 other parties who have been just rude and belligerent messing my day up completely.. Incidents on separate days wouldn't bother me much less but I'm so in my feelings now. Sorry for the rant, Litsy has become my #safeplace

LibrarianRyan Rant away. We get it. 5d
ReadingOverSleeping @LibrarianRyan it's like they planned it ... Loll! Thank you! I appreciate it. Some days are just tough 5d
Buechersuechtling Vent your spleen. Life ain‘t always a catwalk and life ain‘t always about books – even though I‘d sometimes like it more if it was – so for me, rants and vents are always welcome. I like people who blow off steam better than those who always lead a happy life. – I hope you meanwhile feel better. 🤗 4d
ReadingOverSleeping @Buechersuechtling you are so incredibly sweet! Thank you so much! I actually left my current office so I'm in MUCH better spirits away from people who were provoking me. Sometimes we just have to cut people off! 2d

By the time I realized this book wasn't going to get any better, I was too invested in the story and finished to find out how everything will come together. I found it a little too neat but I do appreciate it acknowledge student-teacher relationships in a way that it can open the door for conversation with teenagers. The "past" was well written but the "present" was too much of a reach - No depth but a ton of whining. Pass. #teamsleep

This did NOT end the way I expected it to. The only reason I didn't finish this in one sitting is only because there aren't enough hours in the day. The plot is well thought out, characters are complex, the book is cleverly written and it's definitely unpredictable. I'm so satisfied with the ending. #teamnosleep for #vicious ...

Ummm excuse me?!

Buechersuechtling Yeah, I feel the same. I mean, what do they mean❓ I did a quick research and it seems there will be a fourth volume. No sequel but a prequel to the “Hunger Games”. The story shall be set 64 years before the plot so far and tell about the “Dark Era” – a period of an unsuccessful rebellion in Panem. (Which I don‘t remember to have read about in the trilogy. Did I just forget❓🤔) But anyway, thanks a lot for your post. 2w

I absolutely LOVED this witchy read! The storyline graples you immediately, a small village gives up their youngest baby to a witch in the forest every year. Really enjoyed another book with strong female leads! Luna is a bright, strong and powerful little witch coming into her own but she is only part of the story. Definitely recommend this, especially for young readers. #teamnosleep for #girlwhodrankthemoon

Buechersuechtling By reading your review I realised that I have read that, too. I can‘t remember what it was that did not fully convince me but the clever plot idea was a winner, anyway. 2w

ReadingOverSleeping @Buechersuechtling there is a part of the book where it felt a little too forced but maybe because I read it as an adult? I agree, clever plot though! 2w

This is more than a coming of age story. It's about a young woman brave even violence for the sake of what is right while being stifled by everyone around here for being a witch. Lots of folklore in this witchy trilogy and I enjoyed it. Great example of nothing is simply good/evil. Not for children by any means but it's a great for young female readers seeing a character so enriched, strong and beautifully wild. #teamnosleep #winterofthewitch

LittleBug I loved this trilogy too! Absolutely agree with your comment about a strong female role model☺️ 1mo
ReadingOverSleeping @LittleBug It was such a refreshing read! A little romance but she does it on her own. I was happy reading about Olga being as strong as she was, too, and without magic. I can't remember who recommended it, but I'm so glad they did!! ❤️❤️ 1mo

I've been obsessing over The Odd Sisters since starting the #Disney #villains series. I loved how the stories are entwined with each other, which annoyed me at first, but Valentino does this really well as the series continues. I wish there was more on their insanity and it didn't end so neatly but I still enjoyed the book. Maleficent's story is still open ended, or did I miss something? #teamnosleep #theoddsisters #disneyvillains

I loved this book! So far my favorite in the series, and Rapunzel was never a Disney favorite for me. Gothel's story is tragic and it's sad to see her do everything to avoid a prophecy but watch it happen anyway. I feel no remorse for her but the story is sad nonetheless. I finished this one in a day. #teamnosleep for #mothergothel ... On to #theoddsisters 💃

This was really entertaining. This author gives a different perspective of the "good" fairies and Malificent retelling the fact that there's good and bad in all of us, it's what you choose to embrace that makes you who you are. Disney is notorious for helpless females so I appreciated this mini-monolouge from the Mistress of Evil. The story behind putting Aurora to sleep is a bit of a stretch but I enjoyed it. #teamnosleep for #mistressofevil

This was my least favorite so far, regardless it's still a fun read. Ursala's back story is heart wrenching, full of sadness and turmoil and it really shows how hate can build and become fuel for spite and heartlessness. Odd Sisters, though they were much less vindictive in this one. I missed that. The only thing I don't like is tying in the next book randomly to hook you. Regardless, #teamnosleep for #poorunfortunatesouls

I'm learning I have to be patient with this series. It's usually a slow build and it takes me many days to get through the first half, but when it picks up the pace it's incredibly hard to out down. Very cleverly written and I'm loving Vasya's hunger for owning her own life. She's brave, smart, kind and lives to build her own path. #teamnosleep for #girlinthetower #sequel #bearandthenightingale

I enjoyed this enough to finish it in one sitting. We really got to see the type of person and how lost the Prince was through the story: self serving, cruel at times and incredibly vain. I really liked getting more of a story about The Odd Sisters mainly because I find their insanity fascinating. I still hate Gaston though there was a definite nudge to lure you into sympathy for him. He's still a POS, fyi. #teamnosleep #beastwithin #disneyvillain

I've been going so hard the past few weeks. Just a busy time of year all around between 2.5 businesses. I decided to take today off, but, now I can't decide what to do.

I'm really torn with this book, about halfway through. I keep getting frustrated with Louise, no one is this stupid. No one gets tangled up this quickly at her age in BS this deep.

After the first book, The Butterfly Garden, was a twisted read, it had you from the beginning and didn't let go till the very end. This book is definitely more tamed, much less graphic.

Butterfinger There is a middle grades series by Margaret Peterson Haddix where people go back in time to rescue famous children who died - Elizabeth Dare, the Princes in the Tower of London, Charles Lindbergh's baby boy. I think the first one is Found. I liked the history behind them. 3mo
xicanti I highly recommend PAPER GIRLS by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang, TO SAY NOTHING OF THE DOG and DOOMSDAY BOOK by Connie Willis, and Kage Baker‘s Company series. It technically starts with IN THE GARDEN OF IDEN, but the best one that works as a standalone is SKY COYOTE. 3mo

rretzler Ditto Connie Willis‘ Oxford Time Travel series. I did like the tagged book, but fair warning that it was long and heart-breaking and maybe a little romantic, but an interesting story (edited) 3mo
Lucy_Anywhere If you want something light and easy, try ONE DAMNED THING AFTER ANOTHER by Jodi Taylor - it's a whole series of ten books or so. THE RISE AND FALL OF D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson is a chunkster but I really enjoyed it - it's more about the political consequences of time travel. 3mo

The first one in the series, The Butterfly Garden, was so disturbing it took me several years to decide to continue with book two. *FACT: gave me nightmares enough where I talked in my sleep asking dear hubby OUTLOUD how I'd escape the garden. Haven't lived that one down yet. Idk what I'm expecting out of this read at this point but here goes! #rosesofmay #butterflygarden #booktwo

Kappadeemom I don‘t think the next two are nearly as scary. 3mo
AmandaEve I read The Butterfly Garden a few months ago and I think about that book quite often. That was a tough book to read. I had to put it down multiple times! I‘m curious to see how this one compares! 3mo
cherinium I feel the same way. I was traumatized by The Butterfly Garden in a way that I've never been before. I don't completely understand why it bothered me so much. I read it years ago and still think about it. I certainly haven't been brave enough to continue the series. 🦋 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @AmandaEve @cherinium @Kappadeemom I'm almost to half way through the second and it's certainly not as mentally exhausting as the first book. I'm not sure why the first one bothered me so much either. I'm not new to these types of reads but the abuse was so brutal! I'll keep you posted if it makes me loose sleep! 3mo

Technically #YA, but I think everyone should read this book. Beyond enveloping you into the story, this novel is pretty realistic: war resulting from relentless stubbornness and hatred effecting generations. We expect constant model behavior, always thinking about the results of your actions: attitude, school, family and yet adults have a knack for screwing up sh*t for generations to come never thinking about the consequences. #teamnosleep

MeesesPieces I loved this series and I love Neal Shusterman! 3mo
LibrarianRyan Crazy isn‘t it!!!!! 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @MeesesPieces love your handle first of all! I just ordered the second from our library to continue the chaos. @LibrarianRyan yes this was a crazy freaking book! The excerpts from REAL NEWS in the intro of the parts is terrifying! Bill of Life may not be plausible, yet, but the whole concept of war and conflict is so relatable in today! This is a scary read! 3mo
MeesesPieces @ReadingOverSleeping thank you! My handle is a nickname I had for my dog. I loved the Unwind series so much I had to buy all of the books! Theres another book of the series called Unbound which is stories from the Unwind World. It‘s also very good. It is terrifying to imagine this as the world we live in! If you haven‘t read Neal Shustermans Scythe yet I do definitely recommend it! 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @MeesesPieces thank you! I'll add them to my list! He's a brilliant writer, I'm really enjoying his work! I can imagine how intense Unbound must be, Cy-Fi's story was so disturbing in unwind 3mo

Unwind | Neal Shusterman
post image

Did a quick mental purge with light reading and I'm ready to dive into another dystopian novel after The Hunger Games. Recommended by a fellow litsian, I'm looking forward to this book! The cover states 'What if your parents could unwind you?' ... I'm intrigued because wtf does that even mean?! 😮👀

Reagan-reads I‘ve heard really good things about this one! 3mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I read Chasing Forgiveness by NS, and enjoyed it! I‘ve always been curious about the Unwind trilogy! 3mo
LibrarianRyan Love Love Love Love this book. They never expressly tell you what unwinding is, but when they start to describe it. WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW 3mo

Scochrane26 I think it brings up a lot of discussion, I remember telling a friend about it. There is a scene towards the end that may haunt you forever, but it‘s worth it. 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Reagan-reads @JanuarieTimewalker13 @LibrarianRyan @Scochrane26 this book all types of messed up but it's SO GOOD. The will to survive is strong 💪👊 3mo
LibrarianRyan @ReadingOverSleeping I know right!!! I need to read the rest of the series. I just haven't yet. But man oh man. And with what is happening in our world today, this is looking more and more plausible. 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @LibrarianRyan that's exactly what makes this so terrifying! Once upon a time it was be dystopian but the world has lost its mind and this doesn't seem far out of reach anymore! 3mo
Scochrane26 @ReadingOverSleeping I was waiting to see your thoughts after you read this. 3mo
Scochrane26 @LibrarianRyan I agree with you. And I need to read the rest of the series. 3mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Oooh, so good to know!! Thank you! 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Scochrane26 I've read quiet a bit so far but not done yet! Stay tuned! 😁 3mo
ReadingOverSleeping @Scochrane26 @LibrarianRyan I'm on part 6 "unwound" and my GOD ROLAND YOU COCKY DUMBASS POS! ? 3mo

A group of college friends get together at one person's home after years. The hosts best friend accuses her husband of rape and their world falls into chaos. I couldn't tell you how deep the dive into the chaos it was because I couldn't get past the first 30 pages. There's nothing original about this story. The characters are bland and some of the drama (pregnancy, old affairs) thrown into the mix fell short. I'm good ✌️ #teamsleep for #whatyoudid

Overall, I really enjoyed the book. Complex story, deep characters with folklore and of course the never changing need for man to tell others what is best for them. Vasya is a courageous young girl, ready to live on her own terms. She isn't a lone hero, smart enough to ask for help when necessary giving depth to other characters. Slow at parts, but the end had me engaged enough to continue with the series. #teamnosleep for #bearandthenightingale

What Alice Forgot | Liane Moriarty

This is a definite feel good novel. It takes a realistic approach to marriage, probably children, infertility and other factors that affect adult lives. Life can really harden you if you take it too seriously. Let's laugh and love a little more. Focus on the good stuff, it makes the hard times easier. This ended a little too neatly for me but nonetheless #teamnosleep for #whataliceforgot
