I love this book. It has helped me tremendously get out of the web of negativity in a non hokey way.

Grit | Angela Duckworth
post image

After reading the first chapter of Grit, I started to feel terrible about myself. Then I realized I didn‘t fit into her definition of word grit. This is not a book for me. Into the donation pile it goes.

MyBookSwapClub I tried to read this one...didn't get into it! 2mo

To stave off GoT withdrawals and disappointment(looks at you S8), I am finally getting to this series. It started out slow, but now Its moving. I‘m told the second book is even better. Lets quest! 🙂⚔️

I know its a classic and its super gothic, but its such a horrible story. Poor Quasimodo. Poor Esmerelda. I gotta put it down. So awful. 😕 #DNF

Do I think she did it? Does it matter? Not really. What‘s interesting is how cool she is...not that she has to be hysterical but she‘s unnervingly composed and unaffected she is. Even when she found her father, she did not freak out. Wild!

I just realized I am reading the abridged version. The original is 990 pages and well, I don‘t really have time for that. I do wonder if Im missing anything good or just extraneous words I‘s probably skip over anyhow. Lol

Every time i come to Litsy, I wind up at the bookstore buying books for my never ending TBR list. Figure I‘d get book journal too. I never write down what i‘ve read just star it on Goodreads and move on. Maybe this thing will help my bookish memory. #bookjournal #moleskine

I am in love with Book Beau. These book protectors are well made, i don‘t know about anyone else, but mine take a fair amount of abuse. No more torn covers, folded pages, or other mishaps that happen in a book bag, tote or purse. These are amazing! #bookaccessories

Meditations | Marcus Aurelius, Aurelius Marcus

I picked seven books to reread in 2019. Does anyone else have books they reread every year?

Slajaunie Nope. I am not a retreaded. It‘s funny how some people like to do this and others don‘t. 😁 6mo
Reviewsbylola I reread all the time as a teenager but now as an adult I rarely do. 6mo
Soubhiville I do reread, but I don‘t usually plan ahead... for the last year I have been reading my way through the Discworld novels, some of which are rereads and some are first time reads for me, so I do know I‘ll make my way through 11-15 more of those this year. ❤️ Terry Pratchett. 6mo

Im on a serious Roman kick right now. Ive been watching Mary Beard‘s Roman documentaries. I love her style. #SPQR

Severnmeadows I‘m a Mary Beard fan. I like that on Desert Island Discs the book she chose was the Odyssey rather than a Latin text. (She didn‘t say whether she meant the original Greek text 😊) 3mo

The Shadow of the Wind | Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later—no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget—we will return. ❤️📚☕️👓

And TIME...I borrowed this book because a few friends said it changed their buying habits. They also said it would annoy me but i gave it a go anyhow. When he said most people are like farmers in Africa who think the only way to get rich is to go to vegas or play the lottery at the convenience store, I threw the book across the room. What a buncha racist bullshit. 😖

This book started out well but then descended into interment camps and the US using a gigantic robot to subdue and oppress anyone who isnt pureblood. Im so done. There is enough of this in the “real” world. i dont want to read a version of it with killer robots and aliens.

Roxane Gay mentioned this book tonight. It sounded interesting, so I picked up a copy. I haven‘t been able to put it down. Elizabeth Holmes...i cannot believe this happened?! How does this happen? The main players in this book live in the upside down. There needs to be a show, movie something based on this.

This book had so much potential but lost the plot early on. The President‘s address to the nation is a quick summary of events. i wish would have just read that.
