This book is part of my summer reading stack. I wanted to read a thriller this time around so I figured this would hit the spot! Also, target has been clutch with their book selection lately. What‘s everyone reading?

Monday feels. I got off work yesterday and felt the need to stop by my favorite bookstore and pick up something new (even though I have a huge stack of unread books on my shelf). Wasn‘t feeling well and thought this would pick me up.

Thought this was an appropriate choice for black history month. I actually got this book at a book swap which is why the book is a little rough around the edges. I personally like knowing my book belonged to someone else. It has a different energy from newly bought books. Not sure what I‘m getting into but what books have you gotten at a book swap?

For 2019 I wanted to challenge myself and read 24 books for the year. I know it‘s pretty low but this is a challenge I think I can actually commit to without feeling overwhelmed. My rule is to read two books per month, 1 fiction 1 nonfiction. Here are my two picks for January which happened to be two of my Christmas presents.

What are your most anticipated reads for the year?

#happyreading #2019
#currentlyreading

tpixie That‘s a great challenge!! I‘m in 3 bookclubs so I rarely get to read anything of my choice. But I can‘t bring myself to stop one book club!! So I‘ll be reading those 3 books each month and I hope to sneak an occasional ‘ freebie‘ in. I need to catch up on JD ROBB‘s Eve Dallas series, a new Alex Cross, and Kathy Reich‘s newest. Then I‘d like to get to some of the books on my shelf!! ( which I probably won‘t get to Again this year!) 9mo
BookishMarginalia Good choices! 9mo
steffakish @tpixie wow that‘s amazing to be apart of three book clubs. I can‘t even find the time to join one even though I would like to. Maybe that could be my goal this year haha but I hope you get to add a freebie in, at least a couple of times during the year! 🙌🏾 8mo

I was able to scoop an autographed copy of Circe and a Spanish book from Isabel Allende. Tbh I haven‘t read a Spanish book in a very long time and thought it would be a nice challenge. Can‘t wait to read them both!

DeborahSmall Circe was my favourite read of the year, I read an arc early in the year but nothing has beaten it. Couple came close though, I managed to get a US and UK signed copy too. Also love Isabel Allende so much ❤️📚 10mo

This is the new fiction section at my local independent bookstore. It was my first time visiting this location since I‘ve only been to their main one in the gables.

It‘s that time of the year! The Miami book fair is back and I‘m so excited! Idk if there‘s any Litsy friends that live in Miami but I would love to do a meet up and chat with y‘all!

In the meantime I‘m going to set-up my schedule of authors I would like to meet and other events.

Does your city host an annual book fair? And if so when does it take place?

Started reading the second installment of the Sookie Stackhouse series.

I also started to rewatch True Blood to compare haha

This is probably one of my biggest guilty pleasures and thought this time of year is perfect for a Charlaine Harris read.

What are your favorite Halloween books?

This book was a delight to read! Balli Kaur Jawal did an amazing job at depicting the Indian immigrant experience in London. I often found myself googling all the Gurmukhi terms mentioned to learn about their vestiments and dishes. Not to mention, the erotic stories were actually pretty good and not corny as I presumed. I highly recommend this book!

I missed Litsy! I really need to post more and interact with my Litsy friends.

On that note! I‘m leaving on a trip to Seattle next week and would like some recommendations or even have a meet up with some girls out there to book swap or something! Haha
Anyway, this is my read for the week. Heard great things about this book and it‘s also part of Reese‘s book club so double win!

Far from the Tree | Robin Benway

I would be lying if I said this book didn‘t make me feel like an emotional wreck. Far from the Tree portrayed a beautiful story about 3 biological siblings adopted into different families and how they found each other despite their circumstances. And I couldn‘t help but feel an immense connection with the siblings. I felt like I knew them and I love when books make me feel that way. Ahhh I can gush over this book all day long! #happyreading #ebook

This was such a fun read! Graphic novels about badass girls is a keeper in my heart.

(Lately, I‘ve been doing this weird thing where I have to read something light or quick to then transition into the next book I get into, how long do you guys take to start a new book after you finish one? Just wondering 🙇🏽‍♀️)

Bad Feminist | Roxane Gay
Pickpick

It‘s safe to say that Roxane Gay is an incredibly talented writer. What I admired the most about her book is how represented I felt yet how new and eye opening this was for me. I was able to agree, to disagree, to laugh, and to cry. Great great read.
Highly recommend.

The Mothers: A Novel | Brit Bennett

Pickpick

I had mixed feelings about this book since it was slow for me in the beginning. It took me a while to finish because I didn't feel a crazy impulse to read it but as I picked up the pace I realized how important this book is. Not only did it touch on important issues like abortion, friendship and motherhood but it represented poc in a different light which I enjoyed. I just wish the ending was a little different.

It's centered in Feudal Japan and it was even compared to Mulan and Tamora Pierce. Awesome right? Who's pre ordering this book? Raise your hand 🙋🏽

I'm late in reviewing this book but here it goes! Awesome book! Man goes through it all to get back with his family in a multiverse plot which I enjoyed. Blake Crouch‘s writing was beautiful and very relatable even with all the physics prose. Thought provoking to say the least. I highly recommend! #happyread

I absolutely loved it! Yeah it wasn't what I expected and no it doesn't compare to the previous books but being able to get another glimpse into this magical world was good enough for me. I really enjoyed the time travel concept, and how mature this book was. The down side was how the play format took away from the newer characters. I was hoping it went more in depth but I understand it's part of the genre. Overall, I highly recommend!
