Mehso-so

I guess at the end of the day, my personal meh-ness about GNs remains. I‘m glad GNs exist as I know many people enjoy them. But I still prefer to read a novel, which has the time and room to really build a world and magic system. I also prefer to use my own imagination to visualize the characters and world instead of seeing the author (or really artist‘s) vision.

#pantone2022 seems to fit both these colors

Peter has put into words the exact feelings I feel when walking through a forest. The strong environmental message seeks to instill a sense of value & wonder for the world around us. That the earth is full of community, and not just human community.

That being said, I found the writing a little dense at times (maybe due to the translation), the short chapters a bit distracting, & the organization a bit off.

Overall I enjoyed it.

Out of the 3 Castles Ever After, this was my least fave but I still enjoyed it. It just dragged out a little bit. But still a fun regency romance.

I had a great fun #legoaudiobooking today and finished the Lego Bookshop!

Book 4 for #joyousjanuary
Book 3 for #pantone2022

squirrelbrain Ha! Great idea, Lynn! 😁 1d
wanderinglynn @squirrelbrain my pleasure! 😀 In fact, I just looked & it‘s still sold out at the US Lego online store. I had to order this one from Target. 1d
squirrelbrain You can still buy it from the Lego store in the UK. It says ‘hard to find‘ though, and a max purchase of 5…. Hubby usually buys two of everything and puts one away in the loft untouched. So maybe I need to hint loudly for TWO book shops! 1d

1. I have but I prefer physical books. It‘s too easy for me to lose focus when trying to read an e-book.

2. 🤷🏼‍♀️ e-books are my least preferred format. I have a kindle, which is convenient when traveling. But if I had to choose I‘d pick my third computer screen (that no one can see unless standing right behind me) when I‘m at work. 😉

My most anticipated is the new Mercy Thompson book by Patricia Briggs (tagged) followed closely by Emily Henry‘s Book Lovers. Then JD Robb has 2 new In Death books (Feb & Sept).

But since I‘m on a book buying ban (I explain that here: http://wanderinglynn.com/2022/01/02/a-year-of-books-100-books-in-2022/), I‘m trying not to find too many new releases. 😆

Fascinating. The basic premise: there is an over-reliance on economics/quantitative analysis to make decisions when these things should be a tool not the main determining factor because people do not think logically. Sutherland recommends psychological logic (aka alchemy). He mostly focuses on marketing (he is in advertising) but his premise has application in other areas.

Book 2 for #joyousjanuary

Alchemy (audiobook) I have a little less than 3 hrs to go. Although I wish I had this one in physical form because I‘d be taking notes in it.

Daring Greatly is my #bookspin that I will start as soon as I finish the tagged.

After I read Kitchen Table Tarot (which presents tarot in a down-to-earth manner), I picked up Pollack‘s book (which Cynova also recommends). 78 is incredible, but I‘m so glad I read Kitchen Table first! 78 has so much info, so much detail & in-depth explanations. But it would have been overwhelming had I not read Kitchen Table first.

As a side note, I just had a phone reading with Melissa Cynova. What an incredible experience! She is amazing!

DGRachel I love her Kitchen Table books. She has a fantastic meditation in Kitchen Table Magic that I love so much. It‘s my go-to when I‘m stressed. 1w

Cathyloves2read Question - how do I share a post on here? 2w
wanderinglynn @Cathyloves2read Unfortunately, there‘s no real way to share the original post. To “share” a Litsy post, you have to take a screen shot of the image and repost it, use the hashtag, tag the original poster (me), & direct people to check out this post. For an example, check out @KateReadsYA ‘s profile to see what she did. (edited) 2w

#sundayfunday

I am fascinated with neuroscience and always want to learn more about how the brain works because there‘s just so much we don‘t know.

I stacked this book as a TBR because I have a terrible memory and find it interesting to learn why and what we remember.

Who hasn‘t played? Consider yourself tagged!

jewright I‘m reading Brain Rules right now. It‘s fascinating. 2w
ozma.of.oz I have a terrible memory too! I‘ll definitely have to look this one up! Thanks for posting! 2w

#weekendreading

I started the tagged today & so far, it‘s really interesting. I‘m listening to the audiobook and I suspect I‘ll like it enough to buy a hard copy as I already want to underline & take notes.

I‘m also trying to finish The Hidden Life if Trees as I need to return it to the library!

Thanks for the tag Andrew! 📚💙

7 Jan & I‘m already behind on my reading goal + I broke my book buying ban. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Although in fairness, I pre-ordered this months ago & forgot about it until it arrived in my mailbox yesterday.

Anyway, this is my first book of 2022 & once again JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts) does not disappoint. Even though I guessed the murderer, it was still a fun story. I can‘t wait to see what Eve, Roarke, & the gang do next.

Bookwormjillk I think if you pre-ordered it, it doesn‘t count. It‘s more like a gift from your past self 🤪 3w
bnp I concur - you actually ordered it B4 the ban. 3w
wanderinglynn @Bookwormjillk 😆 yes! That‘s exactly what I‘m going to say. 🙌🏻💜 3w

A 3-for-1 post. And proof that I really do have a TBR bookcase. 😆

1️⃣ the first 25 are my #bookspin list
2️⃣ the entire list is for #roll100 – the tagged is my first roll book
3️⃣ and my reading resolution: no book buying until I have less than 20 unread on my bookcase.

And I still have another dozen books to plug into the open slots as I take one off the shelf.

Smarkies I am trying my best to not buy too many books this year but I don't think I would be able to get my unread shelf to 20. 😅😅 3w
Daisey I like how you combined your #BookSpin & #Roll100 into one list! 3w

A Year of Books

I didn‘t read consistently in 2021. Some months I read a lot, some months I read only 1, some months I reread old faves and then reread them again.

So I opted to pick my overall favorite 12 new reads of 2021. #12booksof2021

Happy New Year Littens! May your 2022 be full of great reads and new adventures. 🎉

The Heiress Gets a Duke | Harper St. George
post image
Mehso-so

This regency romance was okay. I didn‘t care for August, but I did like Rothschild. The story was okay—impoverished Duke needs a heiress to save his estates. Not my favorite romance trope.
