Scribe: A Novel | Alyson Hagy

This story is...different. I don‘t even remember where I saw it the first time and thought I‘d want it. I got it in a Christmas book exchange. It‘s interesting and I‘m over half finished but the writing style is different from any I‘ve read that I can remember. Mr. Meow does not care one way or the other. #catsoflitsy

Right now I‘m finishing this one. Second in the series. The first one was Delirium. If you liked Hunger Games and/or Divergent it‘s very much in the same type of genre. I‘m pleasantly surprised so far.

Then I went to B&N because they were having a 50% off sale and was sorely disappointed that it was only a couple of tables. NONE of these were on those tables. Hmpf. Bought them anyway. 🤷🏻‍♀️

How to Stop Time | Matt Haig

Lovely book! And a message at the end I didn‘t expect that was quite timely.
Tom doesn‘t age like everyone else. He‘s lived over 400 years. The story bounces from current to past but without being distracting and tells you his story of how he, and others, came to exist for so long. And for you Whovians...Benedict is rumored to be Tom in the movie 😉

NatalieR I really appreciated the message at the end too. It also came at a significant moment in my life. 🙁 2y

This amuses me to no end. See, JR Ward lives in Louisville, KY, and Charlemont = Louisville. The parallels tickle me. There is really a Big Four Bridge, the IN neighbor is a combination of actual Jeffersonville and New Albany and the Ohio River is, well, really the Ohio River. I‘m not sure anyone not from here shares my amusement but it‘s one of my favorite things about these books 😁

Holy cow! I kept hearing that the twist at the end was crazy and it was no lie. I didn‘t have it figured out until the last chapter.
Adele and David are married. They have a “troubled” past and Louise walks right into the crazy. What goes down is lies, manipulation, and other stuff I can‘t share without giving important stuff away. Read it!

I took FOREVER to convert to ebooks but if I hadn't I wouldn't have found these treasures by @HeatherKilloughWalden the majority of her books are ebooks and I love her flare in the paranormal. This particular series is a take on the Peter Pan story. While I still like a genuine 3D book, I find so much more diversity in the ebooks world. #6666giveaway @Booksandcooks

I read this book a while ago. It was more than 'so-so' but I don't know about the coolness rating. This was like a Little House book but set in Auckland. The main character is Amy and at times I wanted to smack the taste out of her mouth but I guess it was the time period and probably how things were back then. I HAD to read all 4 of the books to see what happened. Not my normal genre but I enjoyed it.

The Vampire King | Heather Killough-Walden
post image
Pickpick

The Vampire King is the 1st of @HeatherKilloughWalden that I read. The 1st of at least 13 books in the series. At the time I just thought, "Cool, another vampire book." As I read, I learned about Evie-her normal life and Roman-the king of vampires, destined to be her mate. I love the mix of magic and human worlds and giggles more than once at the sarcasm and character these 2 developed. There's also a deeper story that starts to build.

dari_22 I love this author and this series and every book out pulls you in to this world. That's why I love this author she's very creative with her writting 3y
Smashlee @dari_22 I devour these books! I've started the Sam series but got sidetracked. The Kings and Big Bad Wolf series are lovely! 3y

How do you "add" a book or author? I see some of her books on here but there are so many more and I love her!

Books are my shelter. They don't ask stupid questions or want me to pick where to eat for dinner. They don't walk in the door raging about every little thing that didn't go right in the day. They are my safe place to escape where words create a respite from adulting.

This is not my typical genre AT ALL but it has a local setting (even though it's supposed to be fictional) and it was such an easy read. Rich, "southern" family and all their fucked-up deliciousness, mingled with murder, money embezzling, forbidden poorly timed love chances, and biting sarcastic wit from the writer.

I love series books. There aren't many of Heather's on here but I've read all of the Big Bad Wolf series (4 I think - start here) and The King series (spin off of the wolves 8 of 13 have been released). Mostly ebooks, usually around $5 or less. Fun take on vampires and werewolves with magic and lots of other mystical beings. And not heavy on the lust breathing love story but enough if you like that sort of thing.

Another B&N bookguy recommendation: behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing.

Reggie I dont know what was going on at the time, lol, but I got real emotional reading this book, um i hadnt cried that hard over a book since 12 years before on The Notebook. And the crazy thing is some people just dont like this book. I loved it though. 3y
