Such a cheesy picture but an amazing book! I read it while working the front desk and made a bit of a spectacle of myself; crying at the sweet relationship between father and son. Not overly political but gave a new perspective to events during the previous administration. So glad I got back on the waitlist after having to return it unfinished the last time I got it.

Grabbed this audiobook from Hoopla but after about 75% I bailed. What I felt was really poetic in the beginning of the book began to feel a bit melodramatic. 💜#themrs

LoverofLit I felt much the same way. I made it through and was intrigued by the premise and direction at the end, but not enough to have picked up the second in the series almost a year later! 1y

“Look For Me” by Lisa Gardner. Perfect read while my kids are on Spring Break! It is latest in the DD Warren series and also includes the reoccurring character Flora Dane.

Ok Littens, many of you use audiobooks but I was wondering how you get them. Libraries? Subscription to audible or ????

Coleen I‘ve lately been using Hoopla a lot. I also have a ton of audiobooks that I swap on PaperBackSwap and BookCrossing. And sometimes the library or Libby/Overdrive. 1y
JoScho I am trying to get more into audiobooks. I do use my library so OverDrive but I also signed up for a two month trial with Scribd. They have a pretty great selection. 1y
Morr_Books My library has free access to Hoopla, Cloud Library and Overdrive, so I have a lot of free audiobook options. 1y

ofbooksandme I do the non-legal option 1y
GripLitGrl From library using Libby and hoopla 1y
theresidentromantic The NY public library has a ton in their online system. If you're non NY resident, I think you pay a fee but then you can get a card to borrow online. Every so often I pay for audible, get a bunch of things I really want and can't find and then quit it again for a while. 1y
LoverofLit I use the overdrive app which uses the public library system. You just pick your library, enter your library card and away you go. 1y
Eggbeater I use Audible but I only listen to a couple books a month 1y
PandaPanda I get them from all over the place. Audible (especially when they have big sales), Libby, and more recently Google play books 1y
Phlamboyant @theresidentromantic Really? I must look into this NY public library thing. Our selection is fairly limited in my library's system, which is a grouping of mostly small Idaho towns. 1y
Phlamboyant I had been using Overdrive with my local library card, but recently switched over to Libby. As far as I understand, Libby is Overdrive with a nicer interface/look/whatchamacallit? 1y
britt_brooke I use Overdrive and Audible. 1y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I use audible and audiobook.com love them both ❤️ 1y
QuietlyLaura Hoopla and Overdrive through my library. Audible for those books I know I'll listen to over and over. 1y
theresidentromantic @Phlamboyant I'm from Brooklyn and this is the website. It's also through overdrive, you can just add it to your library list. Just look for "apply for ecard" Not sure how much it costs, but even if it's 50 for a year, audible is 40 in two months for four audiobooks https://www.bklynlibrary.org/use-the-library/borrow 1y
cathysaid Library using overdrive and hoopla. 1y
sprainedbrain All of the above! I use the library (Libby app) whenever I can, but also Audible and Playster. I‘m planning to cancel Playster for a month and try Scribd. 1y
theresidentromantic @Phlamboyant Happy to help! I should actually PSA that info, now that I mention it. 1y
Redwritinghood Library via Libby and Hoopla. 1y

Kaye I‘ve been in and out of Audible.. the main reasons for joining are their selection and lots of times if it‘s a book I‘m very impatient for and the wait list is like 6 months at the library, then I use Audible. I need to try going back to only using Libby ( a much nicer and user-friendly app than Overdrive ). And Hoopla, which has quite a wide selection of unusual books not found on my Libby page. Audible can get quite expensive ! 1y

Simply superb! What seems like a simple story about survival is anything but; it‘s complex and explores the ideas of love, loss, guilt, shame, mental instability, and co-dependency and how to survive those emotional elements. It‘s one of those stories that has you hinged page by page, waiting with bated breath only to finally finish and continue to think of these characters. 💜 #themrs

A dystopian novel set in a world divided into Fates (think districts from Hunger Games) where Roselle is the daughter of the Fate of Swords and is basically a celebrity but also a second born. Firstborns rule the entire Republic while secondborns spend a life in slavery and servitude. She is clearly the better choice to rule her Fate but Roselle would not necessarily like to the rule the Fate but rather revolutionize the entire Republic. 💜#themrs
