Had a little Home Alone marathon tonight! I want to watch the new one on Disney+ soon (purely for the connection to the original two movies). #WinterGames2021 #WinterGames #TeamGameSleighers +16 points
The beginning of this one was great. A string of random murders is being committed and no one has a clue who the murderer is except for us, the reader. About 30ish% in, it lost me. I almost DNFed but I was holding out hope that it would pick back up. I was disappointed until the last ten minutes of the big reveal. 2.5/5 stars for me.#bookreview #WinterGames2021 #WinterGames #TeamGameSleighers #LittenListen
The book pictured is what I actually read; Litsy won't let me add it for some reason. Fun and lighthearted. Definitely cozy mystery territory. I didn't know this was a series when I started, but it's not too hard to pick up on character history. Mild TW for mentions of domestic abuse. #bookreview #WinterGames2021 #WinterGames #TeamGameSleighers #LittenListen
A nice holiday-centric romance. Very low on the spice scale; I'd give it a 1/5 in that regard. It was refreshing to read about PoC characters and a different culture for a change. The ending seemed a bit rushed in my opinion, but overall I'd say 4.5/5 stars. #bookreview #WinterGames2021 #WinterGames #TeamGameSleighers #LittenListen
Here's my #tbr for #WinterGames2021. I may be a tad over ambitious; literally all of these are currently on hold on Libby! 🤣 Most of them are fairly short so I'm hoping to get through the majority of them. #TeamGameSleighers
Hope you're all having a wonderful #thanksgiving! 🍽
Happy thanksgiving to all those who celebrate! ❤️🧡💛🤎🦃🍽🥧🤎💛🧡❤️ #thanksgiving
Started out great; the familiar storyline where Watson & Sherlock meet for the first time and work on their first case together. However, things took a very abrupt turn and suddenly we're catapulted into the American West. This is my first time reading the original Sherlock novels, so I had no idea what was happening. I kept double checking that I was still reading the same book and that there wasn't a technical glitch with my library app. (cont)
My match for #NewYearWhoDis is @BennettBookworm ! So many of the books from this list were already on my radar, so it will be exciting to finally get around to them! My plan is to read one per month starting with the tagged book. Can't wait to get started! #NYWD22
This was a great story! I read this for a group/book club that I am in on Facebook. Elsie is an amazing, strong character; and there are so many great characters included in the story as well. I was a little iffy on the historical accuracy of some of the terms used in this book, however they were just brief mentions so I wasn't too worried about it. (continued in comments)
This book was such a great and interesting read. It's a mix of about half of things I already knew about and half I had no clue. So many things nowadays can be considered “cultish“; it's almost inescapable. Especially the MLMs...I steer clear of those; those (mostly) ladies are suspish!
Makers of Litsy! By show of likes and/or comments, would anyone be interested in a bookish yarn swap? If enough people show an interest, I will sort out the details. The swap would probably take place early 2022. #makersoflitsy #knittersoflitsy #crochetersoflitsy #audioknitting #audiocrocheting #crochet #knitting #maker #HookersOfLitsy
Wow! Thank you so, so much Aletheia! I'm a little in shock getting so many awesome gifts! You've completely spoiled me and I can't decide which item is my favorite....they're all so great. Thank you so much again @Avanders !!!! #HHS #HauntedHollowSwap @wanderinglynn
I don't currently keep a journal, but I'd like to start a reading journal and/or personal journal.
So far I have read 16 books this month; granted about half of them were graphic novels and children's books.
Today, I am grateful for my family, friends, and boyfriend.

It seems like things just keep piling up and some days it feels so crushing. I try to keep myself busy and not worry but sometimes that's hard to do.
Thanks for the tag @bthegood ; care to play @Bookishgal71 ?
1. Both! 🖤
2. The obvious answer is Harry Potter, but I also love The Vampire Knitting Club series, The Witch's Daughter, Beautiful Creatures, and The Lost Apothecary.
Thanks for the tag @EadieB

I loved this book! Kenya was a strong woman who still had breaking points. Cam was a sweet 'lil cinnamon roll. My only complaint was the lack of spicy scenes. There was really only one love scene and a lot of insinuated sexy time. After so much build up to the initial love scene, it felt rushed and very short for my liking. After that, there wasn't much. Maybe I've been reading too much smut (yes, yes I have), but this had so much sexy potential!
Started reading this one this morning from #NetGalley. It doesn't fit any of the challenges I'm doing for October but after finishing All the Feels a few weeks ago, I needed another fix and this one is a perfect fit so far! I've been obsessing over romances with plus-sized heroines that read like Ao3 smut and I'm👏🏻here👏🏻for👏🏻it #currentlyreading
Halfway through this one. I was unsure about it and almost DNFed at about 10-20% but then things took a turn. This almost reads like a true crime nonfiction book, which I love, but not sure how I feel about that tone in a fiction novel. The story is good so far though! #Scarathlon2021 #TeamHendrix #LittenListen
It's been a while since I posted a book haul, so here's the past three or so month's worth! I did a pretty big unhaul a few months ago and now I'm working on replacing them. I actually found Dangerous Women at The Dollar Tree! I've already read a couple of these but I wanted to own the physical copy. A couple may end up on my Scarathlon TBR as well! #bookhaul
Just signed up for #Scarathlon2021 ! ! So excited!

Forgot to post my reading plans for September! I'm doing a buddy read of If The Shoe Fits with @Tattooedteacher and also doing read alongs for Fellowship of the Ring and the Broken Earth trilogy with beautifullybookishbethany on YouTube! This is my first time reading the LotR trilogy after loving the movies for years. I'm excited to start it and I have the audiobooks read by Andy Serkis preordered on Audible!
Last update! Everyone meet Evie! A coworker found her along the road in the middle of nowhere about three weeks ago & I knew she would come home with me. She's about 9 weeks old now and she is a live wire! Note the last picture; this is how she and Gracie are getting along 🤣 they play all day. (Also, if anyone was wondering, she is named after Evelyn from The Mummy because she.............is a librarian☺️) #catsoflitsy #furbabies
