The level of excitement I have for this book is so high I pre-ordered it. I never do that. And then to top it off, it was pre-ordered through Amazon 😬. Anyone know why they‘re the only ones releasing the paperback the same day? If it‘s an error I‘m canceling because I hate them, but I really don‘t like hardcover as a rule.

Didn‘t like this at all. Read it in about 10 minutes and that‘s 10 minutes I won‘t get back.

Good, but massively depressing. I already didn‘t think highly of my generation‘s prospects, now I think even less highly of them. Also, it‘s weird to see such a generational warfare book produced by a conservative, but here we are. Still, an interesting read.

This took a while for me to get into. Although I eventually liked it ok, the civil war references are a bit dated and the protagonist‘s ex is too creepy for me to like in a “cozy” mystery. #summerofcozies

I‘m here to ask Litsy for help: I seem to be at a crossroads. My job is inadequate, I‘m looking for work but have the impending recession looming over me now, my car needs 1000‘s of dollars or repairs to be safe to drive (I‘m lucky I have a good support system, so getting to my job won‘t be a problem). I‘m starting to see depression looming again. What books made a mark on you during a crossroads in your life? #help #crossroads #recommendations

TrishB I don‘t have any specific books. But when I feel so many different things getting on top of me I try and see which I can actually solve and try and plan something for those. Just having a plan helps me. I‘m not trying to be patronising as we all approach things differently I know. Hope you start to find some answers. 1mo
Megabooks I‘ve had two years worth of issues in my life recently and read this three times 1mo
TheBookDream @Megabooks thank you, I‘ll check it out 1mo
TheBookDream @TrishB I‘ve been working on that too, but having trouble with the long term planning. Either way, it seems like leaving the weekend free of such activities has been helpful in getting perspective. Weekend for books and board games. Weekdays for life. 1mo
TrishB I try not to do anything at least one day of the weekend for the same reason! 1mo

#24in48 check-in. I actually had another 36 minutes on the clock at least, but one a tradition I...screwed up the timer. I was using TimeCamp too, so that shouldn‘t have happened. Whatever. If I make 2-4 hours I‘ll be happy. Very busy day though.

It‘s #toohot and anything other than sitting quietly indoors reading causes melting. So reading and listening to classic rock. Had Cheap Thrills by Big Brother and the Holding Company on, and now it‘s the White Album by The Beatles.

Cheshirecat913 I really liked this book when I read it a while ago. I got the second book and mean to do a reread sometime in the future. 2mo

So after a ton of water and a day spent almost entirely in bed, minus vacuuming, I am feeling better. I tried watching the debate but quickly got discouraged. Back to fanfic for the moment. #fanfic #pusheen #nook #summersucks

This book is EPIC. Queer characters, rebellion against a monopolistic shipping company, queer romance, settings in space. Ugh. I LOVED it. Definitely one of the best new reads of the year. #queerreads #YA #queer #KingArthur #Merlin #Camelot

Finally recovering from the latest round of #summerblues nonsense. Thanks for all the well wishes. Dark Phoenix movie (uneven but better than expected!), Red Lobster meal, and Wizards Unite later, I‘m trying to finish this book and plan studying. Does anyone know anything about the #Holberton school?

The summertime blues have hit hard (anyone else get this? It‘s like reverse SAD) and I‘ve been all kinds of depressed and in (mostly mild pain). There‘s only so much Good Omens fanfic a person can read (Aziraphale/Crowley FOREVER ❤️) so giving this #queerread a try. #underemployedadventures #summertime #summerblues #queer #YA #KingArthur

LauraJ Yeah. There's a lot of that going around here in Los Angeles. You're not alone. Hope the book helps. 3mo
WorldsOkayestStepMom Just last night, I learned that Summer SAD is an actual diagnosis! I hope you are able to find some relief soon! I think I may have it too. Also, I just got this book for my birthday last week and I can't wait to start reading it soon! I can't wait to read your review of it. 💖 3mo
zezeki Yes, I feel like I get the blues at the every change of seasons. 3mo

Merethebookgal I actually rep for a book sleeve company on my instagram page! Their shop is called The Lit Luminary and they have a ton of fun prints that come in three sizes, and they also have really cute hanging bookmark holders!

A great, feminist book by a non-white author. I wish I‘d had this book a few years ago. This woman‘s insight into the first generation born in America experience as the daughter of Indian immigrants would have been very helpful in a now lost friendship 😔
