I do not have a favorite author. Not because I have so many that I can't pick just one; just that I do not have *one specific* author of whom I follow so I can read all of their work. Is that taboo? I feel like everyone has a favorite author...

RaimeyGallant I feel the same about favorites generally. 2w
TheEllieMo I don‘t have a favourite author, I don‘t have a favourite genre. I don‘t really have a favourite anything. 2w
Stephuhhnieee @TheEllieMo @RaimeyGallant Good to know I‘m not alone! Recently been seeing a lot (and have been asked a lot) of posts around the internet on favorite authors.... I felt entirely out of the loop haha 2w
Hooked_on_books I definitely have authors who I will look for and be excited when their books come out, but there‘s no way I could name one favorite. Nor would I want to try. 2w

Took me long enough to finish this one (nothing to do with the book) And I‘m glad I found the time to! That ending though. I was confused... but once it clicked, 🤯. Passed my copy along to a coworker instantly with good praise!

13 Reasons Why | Jay Asher
post image

I devoured this in high-school; and put it on my then list of top reads, but I haven‘t read it since. I watched season one of the Netflix show when it came out, and was shaken by the rawness of it. I didn‘t hate the show, but did feel strongly for those who may have watched it and found themselves worse off. I‘m curious to see how I‘ll perceive the book now that I‘m older, would say I‘m in a better mental state, and have a child of my own.

IamIamIam I read this a few years ago, in my late 30s, and I was very impressed with the level of responsibility that was placed on all the secondary characters and that very little attention was paid to the actual suicide aspect of the main character. I didn't watch the series because I thought the sensationalizing of the suicide took away from the story. Her story focuses on accountability, not the drama of suicide. 3w
mom2bugnbee @IamIamIam EXACTLY. I have two girls in HS & also read this a few years back. I thought then, & I think now, that it should be HS required reading. My now HS senior (read it as a frosh or soph) boycotted the show b/c she heard enough to know that it missed the point of the book. And now it's just become a whodunit in later seasons. Nothing wrong with a whodunit, but don't claim that it's a retelling of the book. 3w
Stephuhhnieee @IamIamIam I agree. Up until now, as I realize they changed the way she committed her suicide was changed in the show (which made it more dramatic because that scene was hard to watch) I thought they were doing a great job of showing the accountability of the secondary characters. I personally thought it would have been a good tool for a parent or teacher to sit and watch with someone younger and point out those accountabilities... 3w
See All 11 Comments
Stephuhhnieee @IamIamIam And to show the warning signs of someone asking for help... because those are missed a lot of the time. But I‘m starting to feel different as I wrap the audiobook up. I‘m still a fan, but my views on the show have changed. They could‘ve done better. Should have done better. 3w
Stephuhhnieee @mom2bugnbee I refuse to watch the following seasons. They have nothing to do with the book aside from giving viewers a very Hollywood “what would happen after.” I feel like the point of the book was there, but was lost the moment they aired the episode of her committing. Which as @IamIamIam said sensationalizes it. Also, more people were mad at the secondary characters for being so ignorant and it didn‘t seem to click.... 3w
Stephuhhnieee @mom2bugnbee didn‘t seem to click that those were the lessons the producers wanted people learn. It shouldn‘t of been a tv show, yet. It came before it‘s time and needed more thought on the production of it. 3w
LibrarianRyan Not gonna lie, I love the book, and I like the TV show, and am about to complete season 3. The book is all about Clay experiencing the tapes and making sense of what happens. He listens all in one night. I liked the TV show because you got to see what the side characters were thinking and feeling as they see others get the tapes. Why wouldn't person one just toss them. Why would they pass them on? You get that in the show as it takes Clay 3w
LibrarianRyan Weeks to listen to them. And it shows how he does and does not want to know. His questioning of himself “what did I do“. You do not really get that in the book. 3w
Stephuhhnieee @LibrarianRyan The tossing of the tapes crossed Clays mind in the book, but Hannah said she had an extra set that would be released publicly if the tapes didn‘t make it all the way around. (I think Tony has the extra set? Which is mentioned in the show.) But I agree that it is nice to get more view points from the rest of the characters involved. But I do feel things could‘ve been portrayed much differently now that I‘m rereading! 3w
LibrarianRyan @Stephuhhnieee That's the other thing. Tony is just a mention in the books. An almost non-character. They expanded his role so much. And I actually liked it. 3w
Stephuhhnieee @LibrarianRyan I agree! It was nice to know more about why Hannah trusted him and what he was up to while the tapes were being passed around. 3w

Heeeey Litsy friends!

I am in need of some recommendations if you have them! I have THE pickiest 5 year old (going on six) eater this side of the East Coast. Does anyone have any books they recommend (other than the tagged title) to help with that? I‘m losing my marbles and she‘s becoming even more stubborn 😓

AkashaVampie Awww I'm sorry sweetie. I have 2 picky eaters myself. I've never read any books like that, so cant help u there. My advice is take it day by day. My mentality for that is getting them to eat something is better than nothing. 3w
Stephuhhnieee @AkashaVampie I appreciate it! That‘s what I‘ve been telling myself (and what her doctors have been telling me.) but there‘s only so many chicken nuggets and hot dogs in the world 😂 And as a person who has had lifelong weight issues and a family history of all sorts of things, I really just want her to live a healthier lifestyle. 3w

Blaire I wish I had some helpful advice, I‘ve been lucky both my kids eat everything, but we‘re terrible sleepers and I read every sleep book out there. 😂😂😂 . I have read where it takes many times of trying a new food to like it, so keep introducing (but not forcing it) and she‘ll likely eventually come around. 3w

LapReader I have 2 picky half Swedish step daughters who before I came along ate the same bland foods on repeat. My Thermomix is a god send. I blend all the veggies & disguise them in the foods they like e.g. Tacos, pasta etc. They have gone from thinking pepper crusted salmon is spicy to eating curry. They have no idea so keep it on the down low please 😂 My partner & I love food so we always talk about it in a positive way and commend them for trying. 3w
Stephuhhnieee @Blaire I lucked out in the sleep department 😂😅 She sleeps more than I do. I think what‘s so frustrating is that all of the foods I try with her now are foods she devoured as a toddler; so I‘m just not getting it. Everyone says it‘s a phase.... but it‘s been two years now lol. I‘ll keep introducing! I appreciate the input!! 3w
Stephuhhnieee @LiteraryinLititz Thank you!!!! Adding them to the list! 3w
Stephuhhnieee @LapReader haha your secret is safe with me!! And that‘s honestly amazing! I need to do what you‘re doing for myself 😂 I love curry but can‘t handle it. With her, I‘ve tried smoothies and those apple sauce packs with hidden veggies 😓 Unless I can put it in a chicken nugget or a hot dog, it‘s not happening. 3w

Today‘s shopping trip was a mix for myself and my daughter 😬 Real excited to give her the Junie B. Jones as she is starting 1st grade herself, next Monday. (Parent moment: where is time going and how do I make it slow down?)

Also had a field day in the children‘s education section 😂 The Titanic book may be more for me than her (there‘s a cd inside where you explore the titanic 😬😬😬)

IamIamIam I bought a Titanic book at the Scholastic book fair and I made it very clear that it was for me, not the kids!!! Lol, I mean, it's accessible to them but I'm the one with the obsession! 😂 Great haul, by the way! I loved 1mo
Stephuhhnieee @IamIamIam 😂😂😂Gotta love a good Titanic book!! And thanks!! Invisible Monsters was the first book in my cart 😬 I‘m excited for it! What I couldn‘t make out from the reviews on the back was whether it‘s just a dark story, or a dark humorous story? 1mo
IamIamIam It's both really, so the situation is dark and that makes the humor so dark it's black. Lol, I read it at least 10 years ago so it's a bit hazy but it was definitely my 2nd favorite, behind 1mo

Meanwhile, my friends and I made a group and started D&D 😂

I must say... I regret making fun of it in the past. With the right friends (and maybe a bit of alcohol... but mostly with the right friends...) it‘s a crap ton of fun 😬 Gotta read through this monster (ha, get it...) of a book and learn the ropes!

As excited as I was to read this, it's falling short of the previous three books in my opinion; all in which I could NOT put down. The only thing keeping me going is that it greatly involves Eddison, my favorite character of the series. We're off to a pretty slow start, aside from a few pages that brought me to tears. Here's to hoping it picks up.

SitsWithaBook I just got Butterfly Garden from the library. I didn't realize this is a series! 3mo
Stephuhhnieee @SitsWithaBook Sure is! 😊 Mixed reviews on the rest of the series online, but I‘ve liked each story. Hope you enjoy! 3mo

Nothing like sitting on the front porch, reading a book, with a solid thunderstorm flashing and booming over the house.

Tampa | Alissa Nutting
Mehso-so

So I couldn‘t put it down...and the whole time my face was in permanent cringe mode. It was like clicking on a disturbing article and not being able to stop reading because you had to see how far it went; hoping the sociopathic main character gets caught and justice served. And not only did I hate her because she was doing terrible things, she was in general a terrible person with an ugly personality. If dark and twisted is your thing, pick.

Stephuhhnieee I give it a so-so because I thought the writing could‘ve been improved. There were just a lot of weird details thrown in that I didn‘t think were necessary. And again, I‘m battling with my mentality on it. Is it okay to say you liked the book when the subject matter is incredibly messed up? How do you explain why you liked the book... (edited) 3mo
sprainedbrain I liked it too... couldn‘t put it down, but it was so gross. I get the conflict! 3mo

Tampa | Alissa Nutting

Reading has been nearly halted this last month due to life. My excuse, always, huh? Lol

In attempt to read something other than Percy Jackson this summer, I picked up this disturbing book....

I‘m 14 pages in and am already thoroughly shook. I could not imagine the mindset Nutting had to get into to create this.

This will be a mentally challenging one to get through...

Reviewsbylola I want to give this another try. I tried it as an ebook and didn‘t like it. I bailed. But I suck at fiction in digital form for some reason. I‘ve heard such great things about this one. Not sure if you‘ve read this book, but it‘s similar as far as the plot and absolutely amazing! 3mo
Stephuhhnieee While I usually don‘t care what people think of me or my choice of reading, I‘m thankful this one is on my kindle. I don‘t want someone to see the cover, be startled by the unmistakable vagina, look up the book/plot, and then decide what they want about why I‘m reading it lol. It‘s a touchy subject. Thanks for the book rec! If I can make it through this one I‘ll look into that one 😊 (edited) 3mo

Peter Pan | J.M. Barrie

Maybe I‘m just a Negative Nancy, but seeing this quote misquoted (mostly in tattoos) all the time drives me nuts. The more “geared towards children” productions turned it around to, “To live would be an awfully big adventure”; where in the book, Peter says, “to die...”

Both are beautiful, but I‘d love to see someone reference the correct quote for once 😓😅

Regifting my BOTM to my dad this time. He‘s been buddies with Blake online since writing his own novel and joining the Indie writer world, but has been a fan for much longer.
