My library rocks! They started a “bookopoly,” and when you play you are entered to win prizes to local businesses! You get a ticket for each property space you complete. This is so cool, and I‘m proud to say I‘ve already completed 6 spaces! Let the reading commence! 🤓

Charityann How cool!😊 2w

Recursion | Blake Crouch

Mehso-so

I loved Blake‘s previous book “Dark Matter,” so I thought I would really enjoy his new novel. Unfortunately, I was left confused for a large part of the novel and I still don‘t really understand what happened. I feel like other reviewers raved about this book and I feel so dumb for not understanding it. Still love Crouch though!

Prairiegirl_reading I‘m only part way through but I‘m feeling the same way!! 2w
TheQuietQuill @Prairiegirl_reading thank goodness I‘m not the only one! Every review I‘ve read people loved it, and I‘m just like, “uhhh I don‘t even know what just happened.” 😂 2w
Prairiegirl_reading @TheQuietQuill I was talking to a friend about it last night because we both loved dark matter and I said “I‘m more than a third into it so far and I couldn‘t even tell you what it‘s about.” 2w
Kappadeemom I just decided to “go with it” and read it even though I was confused. I liked it in the end but it sure made me feel dumb 😂 2w
mandi1082 I heard the audiobook and I was left confused as well. I did not enjoy it as much a Dark Matter. 2w

Been sick in bed for the past week with the flu and strep throat. Feeling a tad better today and it‘s the first day I‘m fever free, so I‘m going to do a bit of a re-read with my favorite vampire series 🧛🏻‍♀️💉

tracey38 Oh no! What a week you've had. Glad you're feeling a bit better. I enjoy this series, too. 4mo

I so wanted to love this book, but I found myself bored and had to skim through the ending. This could have had a lot of potential, and the there really weren‘t any “oh my gosh I didn‘t see that coming” moments. Oh well, back to the library this one goes!

THIS. RIGHT. HERE.
This is why I read to my child everyday, even though he is just an infant. He already has a fascination with books and looks at the pictures and coos when I read. Books open up a world of imagination, and electronics are extremely limited in my house. I pray my child becomes an avid reader like his mama 📚

I‘m gonna start this series from the beginning eventually before I venture into this last book of the series. I loved the first three, but lost interest during the fourth novel. I‘m gonna give it a go again and maybe I‘ll enjoy them again. Can‘t wait to start this last one though because I heard amazing things! 🧝🏻‍♀️⚔️

tracey38 I hope you enjoy them all this time around. I did feel like they got better with each book. 6mo

This is my last week off from maternity leave and my five week old is definitely sending me off with a HUGE farewell. He was up all last night and today he is refusing a nap 💤 Man, I don‘t know if I‘m going to get any reading done this week so can y‘all read a few chapters for me? Also, totally bummed about having to leave my little one next week 😩

Tamra It gets better. 💜 6mo
MelissaSue81 Oh no. I don‘t miss those days.. and going back to work is soooooo hard. Hugs and good sleep vibes. 6mo

Going to try to follow along with this on Audible. I have a hard time focusing and comprehending with being read to, but I have wanted to read this for a long time. I am a complete introvert and have dealt with social anxiety my whole life, so I‘m really looking forward to this reading! Let‘s just hope I can follow along! 🤫

TiredLibrarian I loved this, and wish there was a way to get everyone to read it. It was refreshing to hear that being an introvert is not only not a weakness, but a strength in many ways. I hope you like it! 6mo
TheQuietQuill So far I‘m loving this book! Really makes you think of all the great qualities that introverts have! @TiredLibrarian 6mo
KTOHARA Does it cover both? I'm an introvert sometimes and an extrovert in other occasions. Depends upon a lot! Must be very interesting and long overdue! With kids I'm very much the extrovert! 6mo
TheQuietQuill So far it‘s covering a bit of both, but it has such great information in this book that I believe introverts and extroverts should definitely read this. It will really give you a new perspective 😀 @KTOHARA 6mo

This collection of poetry was simply stunning. At first, it was a lot like Milk and Honey, but it turned into so much more. By the end, I felt empowered and positive and now I can‘t wait until she writes another. Too bad it took me this long to read, but it was a fast one and a book I will come back to many times.

Already loving this book with this awesome map 🗺 I LOVED Caraval so much, and I can‘t wait to dive into the second novel by Stephanie Garber! Excuse me while I transport myself into her awesome world she created for us ❤️❤️

Mehso-so

This book started off a tad bit slow, but really picked up towards the middle. There were times I couldn‘t put it down, especially toward the ending. While the ending may have seemed a bit rushed for my liking, I think the author didn‘t wanted us to know too much about what is going to happen in the next book about Verity. This book has witches, vampires, and crazy puritans! Definitely check it out 🧛🏻‍♂️

RocketMom Sounds right up my alley! 11mo

The Librarian: A Novel | Larry Beinhart

Can I just say how proud I am of my local small town library!?! We‘ve never had serious librarians before, and only ever had old, outdated books. They rarely ever got new material, and the library suffered for it. We got a new librarian about a year ago and she is making MAJOR changes! She now gets all new, best selling books and is doing a library makeover! So proud of my small town library!

TheQuietQuill It‘s such an incredible feeling to know that our library is going to do so well again! There was a point in time where they were going to stop funding because it was doing so bad. To know we finally have a woman who has dedication to this library is just so inspiring and amazing ❤️ @WellReadCatLady @LiteraryinLititz @Nute @KristinaRay @sprainedbrain @4thhouseontheleft @julesG 11mo
