Hello Litsy!! It‘s been awhile. Connecting back into The Feed with a new audiobook.
Tuesday‘s Book because it‘s taking me forever to progress through Six Four. I‘ve listened to three hours in 3 weeks.
Theme: I‘m tired and my kids don‘t let me read all the books.
What are you all picking up today?
Pre-order downloaded today!! Who else is picking this up?
So.. I‘ve been super busy the last couple of months. Preparing for baby, a move, AND working on my new blog!! It would mean the world if you guys would check it out. https://beautecontessa.com/books
I have a few sections up already. Comment with your thoughts and the types of posts you‘d like to read! 🙏🏾
Litsy!! I‘ve been away for so long. Life has been happening 😥 I wanted to like this MORE, but the way she wrote Boris was awful! The broken English approach was executed poorly in my opinion. The audiobook narrator had a terrible fake accent. It was god awful. The overall style and cast of unlikable characters was classic Tartt. 3.5 stars! Would reread, but not anytime soon. (Paperback/audio)
The last few months have been terrible reading months. I don‘t think I‘ve finished more than one book in two months. I haven‘t started any either.
At least I‘ve finally made some real progress on The Goldfinch. 56% complete.
This wasn't a 5 star read as I'd hoped. Leonie was the most interesting part of the novel for me. I don't know what it's like to have a drug addicted family member. Her character was well-developed. We understood her pain and her past. Jesmyn made her MORE than just a "junkie" or a "terrible mother" and I appreciated that. People judge addicts harshly in our society. It's important not to dehumanize them. Overall 4 ⭐️stars!
I'm halfway through this novel and I like it so far. Anyone else reading it? How do you feel about it?
🍂 I love fall makeup, books, weather, and low utility bills.
🍂 Sweaters, scarfs, and boots!!
🍂Also I'm a fall baby 👶🏾
Posted this ultra late. I've been processing a recent loss 💔. Tagged by @Buddys_Momma 👋🏾! Here are my #fivestarpredictions (hope I picked good). @Baronessbree @rohit @bedandabook @Nataska @Darumaron Apologies if I've tagged you & you've already done it.
My #TBRbingo is mostly books I own. 😁 Trying to work my way through them.
I'm telling you Litsy. I'm the next influential voice in publishing. I'm blurbing all the books. Writing stellar reviews. Promoting my book release. Events. Parties. Big corner office. Talk shows. The whole nine! (Kidding. They're just showing love to my tweets) Hey! It's well deserved praise and I will forever freely give it. No strings attached.
For the last time Litsy, name is Marlene Clinton! I don't know this Reese_Pearly.Pages person you speak of. You can generate yours at welcometotheblinds.com
In the spirit of not being productive at work. Here are 10 lies I tell myself. Repost your top 10 lies with the hashtag #TodayWillBeDifferent. 😁
Should I come back for book 2? "Nah." Would I say this a must-read? "Nah." It's no secret I generally don't like books with multiple POVs. This just wasn't a great book. Too many people and not a fan of the type of "romance" the Fuller's pursued. ?? ??⭐️⭐️
Decided to read a nonfiction book this month. I didn't know anything about Juan Francisco Manzano, but I enjoyed this short biography. May check to see if any of his work has been translated. 🙂
Starting a new job has left little time and energy to read anything. So this collection of what ambition means to various women on the inside cover is exciting and oddly satisfying.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ Poetic and beautifully written. The audio was great! Definitely, a book I would recommend and reread.
