I heard this book recommended on a podcast and immediately put a library hold on it. This one is perfect for snowy winter days. Just when you think you are cold, hang out with the explorers of Antarctica.

Overall this one didn‘t work for me, but I loved the parts when Hanna was driving the bookmobile.

Traci1 That's disappointing. I've got this one on my nightstand. 😕 7mo

Historical fiction multi generational story. It was interesting to learn about the Texas school explosion. I did enjoy the modern day story line. However there were several unlikeable characters and I just didn‘t understand where they were coming from.

Dysfunctional family whose matriarch writes ridiculous annual Christmas letters. However this is not a Christmas book as most of the story takes place throughout the year. Cute and funny!!

102 books! My best reading year yet.

2019 goals
1. Read 90 books. (But really I want to break 100 again.)
2. Read the 12 books that have been on my Goodreads TBR the longest.
3. Read one book by each of the authors I have 3 or more books by on my Goodreads TBR.
4. Read at least 24 books I own.

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I love a good psychological thriller. I was drawn in from the first chapter. I really liked all the different POVs, it kept the story interesting.

I finished this audiobook while on vacation. I had a hard time getting into the ‘book within the book‘. I did like the actual mystery once that got started about half way through.

A rainy day on vacation is better then a sunny day at work...right? This beach read was full of family drama. In fact so full that I had a hard time keeping the family straight. This family is large and everyone has their own issues. Having said that, Robyn Carr remains an author that I can count on for a good read!

Another graphic memoir! After reading this I feel like Lucy is an old friend and I was personally invited to her wedding. It certainly reminded me of planning my wedding almost 20 years ago.

I love historical fiction. I can get immersed in a story and still learn something about that period or place in history. That is exactly what I got here.

Imagine not being able to talk about your job nor really understanding what purpose your job has. Then realizing that you helped build the atomic bomb. This book follows 4 characters with very different jobs. I thought the feelings of guilt mixed with pride and accomplishment were touching.

I am new to the graphic memoir party and I am loving it. My hat is off to Tom Jensen who stuck with this case for over 20 years to see justice served. His compassion for the victims and their families really comes through on the page as does the admiration of his son who wrote this book.

3 missing persons, 2 hurricanes, 1 murder, and tons of family secrets. Told in two first person narratives 50 years apart. This was my first Karen White, but won‘t be my last.

Even though I check Litsy everyday, I don‘t post very often. So, I am challenging myself to post reviews going forward.

A mystery/thriller with some family drama is one of my favorite genres. However this book fell flat for me. The mystery was good. I just didn‘t find any characters to root for.

Oh my gosh you guys!!! Look what I found in the lobby of my office building this morning. This book has been on my TBR for a while and I recognized it right away. The tag says it is from Under Cover book club. It also included a bookmark signed by the author. I was so excited you would have thought I won the lottery!! #foundthewords513

Nine Women, One Dress | Jane L. Rosen

I am inspired by all the monthly wrap up posts I see. Here are my February reads. After an all time high of 10 books read in January, I am back to my ‘regular‘ pace of 6 books a month. Favorite was Nine Women, One Dress 👗. This was a much needed light and fun read after In Cold Blood.

britt_brooke Nice month! I needed something light after In Cold Blood, too. So good, but so creepy. 1y

Thank you Tristan and @mdm139 for Nathan‘s #jryulebookswap gift. He loves everything. He dug right into the Superstars of Science book. He is considering reading Ender‘s Game for an upcoming school project. He just wishes it wasn‘t 400 pages-ugg that‘s my reluctant reader! The puzzle books are perfect for him. He is excited about building the catapult!! That was his favorite gift. Thanks again!

So #BOTM sent me Pachinko instead of The Animators. I contacted them, but haven't heard back yet. Has this happened to anyone else?

Amandajoy This sort of happened to me once. They caught the error after it shipped but before I received it. I got to keep the extra book & they rush shipped me the correct one. Have to say I wasn't mad. 🤓 2y

Thank you @annamae for my amazing #summersantagoespostal box of bookish goodies! A Tale for the Time Being has been on my TBR and I have been looking forward to reading it. The other two titles are new to me and sound great. Looks like The Eyre Affair is the start of a series. These are perfect choices for me. I am so excited to bring these on vacation.
