I'm pretty sure my car got Katharine McPhee(singer) mixed up with Katharine McGee(author)....I thought the picture looked familiar when it popped up. 🤣🤣 They look nothing alike.

Maybe this is just a stock image they use for some audio files??

I finally gave myself permission to sit in bed & read while waiting on my husband to wake up. Normally I go sit on the couch or dining room table, in fear that I might fall asleep if I stay in bed.

Do or have you ever listen to an audiobook and the narrator is just not doing the book justice? Well, this is one of those situations. I finally checked out the book to read it along with the audiobook.

The performer doesn't really change inflection and I feel like doesn't try to make dialogue more engaging.

What do you do on a snow day?? You cuddle up with your best fur babies with a warm blanket, read a book and watch the birds.

I really love a good mystery on snowy/rainy days. Reading another one of St. James' novels has proven to be a worthwhile pick. There's all the twists and turns.

I love this book. I'm listening to the audiobook and it's so fascinating. I'm not sure I could've read the hard copy and been able to sleep at night. Last time I read a similar book was #Illbegoneinthedark and it creeped me out so much.

Also, the more I stare at this cover the creepier it becomes.

Reprieve: A Novel | James Han Mattson
post image

Continuation of my earlier post - I love the narrator's voice, however it does not match or do this novel justice. It quickly becomes monotonous & bland.

I also don't care for any of the characters, which is intentional & most of the time I can look past those flaws.

I've seen so many mixed reviews about this book, some stating it's a fantastic read and others saying it's a waste of time.
Has anyone else read this one?

I'm really struggling with this book. The audio version is just awful. This is the first book in several years where I'm considering not finishing. I'm about 2 hours in and listening to this is making me tense and slightly irritable.

When dialogue is made up of "he said," "she said" and "they said," over and over again, I can't really enjoy any of the story.

If you need something super cozy and delightful to read this is the series for you! Love the fact that the main character is an antiquarian and is pretty kick ass at solving crime. There's some light romance, just a hint that doesn't overwhelm the main plot.

I don't know if it's just me, but I CANNOT get into Cooney's writing style. I also feel like her plots feel a little disjointed. I was hoping I'd feel different about this one but from the very first page I knew I was going to have a rough time finishing it.

I think her books are much more suited to be movies than reading material. They're full of action that just doesn't play out well for me as a reader.

Really love and enjoy this series. These work great as #audiobooks. The narrator in this book was my favorite out of the first 4. Can't wait to move on to the 5th book. There's always something extra when the author writes in a dog, cat or another animal as one of the main characters.

Enjoyed reading this cozy, little novel. Somewhat predictable, but I didn't read this one for the suspense factor. I've been in the mood for a fun, easy read. Good book to sit down with a cup of coffee or tea.

It's kinda nasty here in western KY this morning. The weather doesn't really know what it wants to do. But Gandalf knows what these days are all about - snuggling down in a thick blanket while I read the day away. Loving #RainbowRowell 's #carryon ! It just keeps getting better. It's got a touch of Harry Potter vibe to it.

When I picked up this book (it was on sale), I didn't know how much I would love it. Although it is written for ya, I feel like anyone struggling with grief or trauma should definitely give this one a chance; it's a hidden gem. Emery's writing about love, loss and the things that haunt us was so therapeutic. I would put it as one of the most beautiful books I've read for young adults. Emery reminds us that healing happens slowly.

The 2 current books I'm working on. Feeling like you're in a reading slump is such a difficult thing to get out of and even believe that you'll get out of it. I think reading slumps are a natural part of being a reader. What books have helped in getting you out of those nasty, discouraging reading slumps?

"I glimpsed masculine forms lingering nearby, ogling me, and knew they intended to follow me -- although I still found it difficult to believe what fools the generality of men were! But experience forced me to conclude that the sight of a pretty woman turned mist of them into jackasses."

This book is so smart and witty! I highly recommend this series to teens and adults alike.

Have I mentioned how much I love early morning reading?? The sun is just perfect, everything's quiet and the cats want to cuddle after their breakfast.

I've been reading children's literature lately so that I can recommend/give some books to my nephews. As most younger kids are, they are obsessed with sasquatch. I think I found a book series they'll enjoy! #childrensliterature #readKY #amreading #catsoflitsy

Mittens entertained himself by watching the birds and I have been reading children's literature. I remember that this was the one and only book that I enjoyed reading before I LOVED reading. Originally bought this book for my nephew, but thought it'd be a good thing to read it again just to make sure it's appropriate for his age. 😉 #readKY #mystery #childrensliterature #winterreading #snowday #staywarm #catsoflitsy

I'm enjoying this snowy morning with some book journaling and, of course, reading! The snow makes me feel like I can slow down and enjoy the quiet that snow seems to bring with it.

I'm really enjoying my current book, Starters by Lissa Price. If you enjoyed the Hunger Games you will need to have this one on your TBR list. I haven't finished it yet, so hopefully it holds up to the end.

Early morning reading is probably my absolute favorite time to read. This is probably the biggest reason why I get so excited when school isn't in session.

Listening to the audiobook right now and I'm really loving the narrator. The book is great too! It's amazing how the narration changes your reading experience....because I've listened to some not so great audiobooks, thought I hated the book, but turns out I didn't. #audiobooks #mystery #readKY #backtowork #commuteread
