My kinda Sunday night! Just started this one and can already tell it‘s gonna be a good one!!!
A cloudy beach day is better than no beach day at all! ⛅️ 🌊 📖
Thanks to a super busy (but overall enjoyable) school year, my reading and Litsy-ing has really suffered.... 😬 But summer has begun and I‘m ready to read all the books and reconnect with all the wonderful Littens 🥰
Lately I‘ve been having a hankering for some nonfiction in my life, so I‘m kicking off my summer binge with the tagged book 🔥📚
Well, that‘s depressing.
Spending a cozy morning on the couch while Mr. Grumpybutt keeps watch 🐶 📖
Loving this book so much I don‘t want it to end!!!
Ohhhhh maaaahhhhhh gaaaawwwdddd- I JUST CAN‘T SLOG THROUGH THIS A MOMENT LONGER! Bookclub be damned!
There, I feel better already 😂
Haven‘t been on here recently bc... life 🤷♀️ lol BUT I have to share my excitement over listening to Taylor Jenkins Reid speak about her new book tonight! Can‘t wait to dive into this one!!! 💜📚🎉
Came home to the beautiful flowers in the background, a delicious home cooked meal (too hungry to pause for a pic 😂) and the most adorbs card that describes us perfectly. So glad my hubbs agreed to #bemyvalentine for life!
Happy Valentine‘s Day, ya‘ll!!! Hope you are all surrounded by love and books 📚💜
Making my way through my towering #botm pile! Hoping this thriller doesn‘t disappoint ✌️
Stayed up late finishing this up last night! I really enjoyed this #botm psychological thriller that had some ties to Greek mythology (see background pic). Knocked off one star bc I prefer my thrillers to be a little more twisty turny, instead of saving it all up for a big reveal at the end. I will say this one was pretty unpredictable!
It‘s safe to say that Elizabeth Holmes and her colleagues made a whole bunch of #promise (s) they were unable to keep!
This book was one of my favs in 2018 and one hell of a wild ride! Be prepared to dive headfirst into the google rabbit hole...
Wow- this one sounds GREAT! Another gem found while perusing goodreads for this challenge (where I copied the book description). This one is def going on my TBR!
I have a love/hate relationship with Liane Moriaty‘s books- some are great and others are a big flop for me (ahem, her last two) 😒
This one was one of the great ones! 😁
I love these photo challenges bc they always cause me to stumble upon fantastic sounding books that I‘ve never heard of! This one is a WWII story about a German dissenter who finds the body of an unconscious Nazi airman in the woods and takes him back to her cabin to care for him. Possibly based on a true story? Add it to the list!
Omg I love this book with every ounce of my soul💜 This is the story of a grumpy old curmudgeon who lives a lonely life after his #soulmate passes away. I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats! 😻
If you haven‘t read this yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??
Oh man I‘m really having a hard time with reviewing this one- after I finished, I did a google deep dive and came up with some concerning info:
-On the one hand I‘m willing to accept that this story is the rememberings of an 87 year old man and I‘m okay with this being his truth and POV- not necessarily overly fact checked
-On the other hand, the author couldn‘t even get Lali‘s name right?! Gita‘s tattooed number was incorrect?!
See more below ⬇️
Glanced up from my book just in time... phew 😂😍
Two chapters in and I can already tell I‘m going to have to read this one quick- like ripping off a bandaid. WWII books are always difficult reads for me, but it so important that they be read. The bravery and selflessness of people living in the worst imaginable conditions is simply astounding.
When Teo Avelar decides he has had enough of being an #admirer from afar, he decides to kidnap Clarice and take her on an adventure through Brazil to convince her they are meant to be- clearly. ❤️
I really enjoyed this odd, twisted little book! Perfect for fans of You by Caroline Kepnes 😏
I‘m terrible at TBRs and also at reading during the school year lol These 3 are definites for this month tho, bc I‘m almost finished with the tagged book and the other two are for my Bookclubs. Never mind I have a stack of expiring library books and just ordered 3 books from BOTM. 🤦♀️
I have a problem. 📚
Omgggggg someone wrote a book about my life! 😂
I am a sucker for any kind of circus/carnival/side show type story but throw in #mermaids and I‘m in heaven! Shocked to see this book got crappy reviews on Litsy- I really enjoyed this one and gave it 4 ⭐️. However, seeing as how I live in a mermaid house, I may be a little biased lol 🤷♀️
Sooo #MyTown is the beautiful Tampa, Fl... I chose this book for obvious reasons however Im not necessarily recommending it to anyone lol
Difficult subject matter and a really disturbing read. The book is based on Debra Lafave- who the author went to high school with. Interestingly enough, I also taught at that same middle school about 10 years after the “incident” occurred... not the best publicity for the school lol
Is it weird that this book cover inspired me to slip my own wedding photo into this post?😂 Haven‘t read this one yet, but doesn‘t she sound like a lovely #wife ?!👰🏻
Ps- everyone can rest assured that we are happily married and plan to stay that way 😂
Just found out this cool venue downtown is hosting these two wonderful authors for book talks and signings! So glad my beautiful city (Tampa) is starting to host some literary events!
Def going to the Taylor Jenkins Reid (author of the Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo) event... want to attend Lisa See‘s as well but- St Pattys Day ☘️ so we shall see about that one lol
First sentence: “My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it.”
Decided to pick my new read for today‘s #wildcard prompt and I‘m pretty excited about that killer first line!.....
Okay, I can‘t not acknowledge that pun 😂😏
So I picked this book for bookclub one month because I was really interested in the sections about H.H. Holmes.... turns out most of it was tediously long, #unwanted descriptions of the architecture that went into building the World‘s Fair... interesting at first but quickly became boringggggg lol give me more serial killer stuff please! 😂
Oh for goodness sake.... I‘m glad that‘s finally over with 🙄
Pretending like I‘m going to read while my hubby tapes his hockey stick in preparation for his first game tonight... at 10:45pm?!?! Here‘s to hoping I don‘t have to meet him in the ER later... 😖 🏒
Anyway- this book... ughhhh it‘s sooooo slowwwww.... nothing happenssssss 😫 I would abandon ship but it‘s for bookclub and I bailed on last month‘s book (to be fair, so did most everyone else lol). Blahhhhhh
These are the reflections of Anne‘s childhood friend who grew up next door to the Frank family. After the family went into hiding, she met up with her again later on in the concentration camp.
I‘m def adding this one to my TBR!
