I‘ve read and loved all of John Green‘s books, and Turtles All The Way Down is a winner! I love that it focuses less on romance and more on friendships and family. The book deals with mental health, trauma, wealth, and the journey we all take in adolescence to figure out who we are. If you like YA, I highly recommend.

I tried this as an audiobook, but could only manage to get through the first few stories. Hank‘s voice was soothing and entrancing, and he is an obviously competent writer. In spite of this, the book is very bland and slow-paced. I just could not become invested at all. I wouldn‘t discount Hanks all together, though, and would definitely try again if he releases another book.

Clive It‘s still in my book stack to read; so many books wanna read & to read but it‘s like can‘t find the time to read these days :( 1y
sailu112 I read 3 stories in this book too. The first one was alright but the way the 2nd and 3rd were narrated was a little boring. I renewed this book twice from the library but had to return. Didn't want to waste time on something I didn't enjoy reading. 1y
StephanieSays @Clive give the audiobook a try! His voice is really great. 1y
StephanieSays @sailu112 I felt exactly the same way! 1y

I‘ve been a huge fan of MIB since his VH1 “I Love the XXs” days. He is so funny while being so eloquent. His “How to be Amazing” podcast is a great example of how he can be incredibly thoughtful and sincere while also making you laugh. This book is excellently paced, exploring some stories all throughout his (and his mother‘s) life. It is very well-written and absolutely worth a read.

Zelma Ooh, that you for the podcast red! I adore him. (His recent role on The Jim Gaffigan show is quite good.) 1y
StephanieSays @Zelma definitely check it out! I especially enjoyed the episode with Alexis Ohanian. I also love The Jim Gaffigan Show! 1y
Zelma @StephanieSays yay, another Gaffigan fan! I feel like a third of Mr. Z‘s and my dialogue is just JG jokes. 😂 1y

I have a $5 credit for a Google Play eBook! I don‘t *love* eBooks, but I want to take advantage of it. Looking for recommendations for something engrossing and not too long since I don‘t like reading a screen for too long. Fiction preferred, YA even better! Thanks in advance, Littens!

readordierachel This is good if you haven't already read it 1y
StephanieSays @ReadOrDieRachel thanks so much! That‘s the one I‘ll get! 1y
trioxin_sematary @StephanieSays Hi Steph, you should give The Enemy series by Charlie Higson a try; it's YA horror. Also the 'Gone' series by Michael Grant is really great! ☺ 14mo
StephanieSays @trioxin_sematary that sounds great! I‘ll have to check it out. Thanks! 14mo

Finally got a library card in my new city! So excited to explore some of the beautiful libraries of NYC! I‘m lucky enough to live a 5 minute walk from one of the branches.

Fun fact: the lions outside of the main branch of the NYPL are named Patience and Fortitude.

Catcher in the Rye | J D Salinger

The Strand Bookstore in NYC is encouraging people to share their book crush, and I love it.

leighmal49 Haven't been to NYC in years, but if I ever get back there The Strand is on my list of places to visit - esp. after reading Dash and Lily's Book of Dares. The Brooklyn Library is too, for those amazing doors. :) 14mo
StephanieSays @leighmal49 you must! the Stand is magical. On the top floor, they have their rare books room, and it‘s amazing. 14mo

Baby Proof | Emily Giffin

Pickpick

This book has been sitting on my shelf for years after an impulse buy at a thrift shop. I had previously enjoyed #SomethingBorrowed and liked #SomethingBlue even more.

While it is at times predictable, the issues it tackles are ones every woman debates in life. Emily Giffin is excellent at telling love stories, so much so that my heartbeat increased noticeably during the big moments.

Would recommend for a fun, unchallenging read.
