✨This took me waaaaay too long to read. I thought about DNF‘ing every other chapter. It was too slow for most the book and then BAM! the end. Just not my cup of tea. 🤷🏼‍♀️

✨Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes! 💜 Yesterday was my only day off this week, so now it‘s back to work and reading in my car 45 minutes before my shift starts. 🙈 I‘m having a hard time getting into this one. I‘m not sure if it‘s because Darkdawn was my last read or if this book just gonna fall short. 🤷🏼‍♀️

✨With my work schedule, the only time I really have to read is around midnight when I get home- which isn‘t ideal since I‘m usually absolutely exhausted.
✨So, now I just get to work really early (OCD won‘t allow me to be late- have to at least be in the parking lot 30 minutes before my shift starts. 🤦🏼‍♀️) and read- which has its own problems cause I don‘t wanna stopppp.

The Recommendation | Jonathan Caren
post image

❌CALLING ALL LITTENS❌
✨Sooo, I‘ve been gone from the book world for a minute (9-10 months 😂) so I need to know all the latest crazes. Recommend me some new (ish) books! Anything YA, thriller, mystery, sci-fi fantasy, etc. I‘ll read anything, but romance! I‘ve heard Gideon something or other is really good?? SOS. Helppppp. 💜📚

tessavi I loved 1mo
LiteraryinLititz Welcome back! Awesome picture, by the way. So here‘s what‘s big lately in my opinion. Atwood‘s new book The Testaments (continuation of Handmaid‘s Tale) is the biggest, though I haven‘t read it yet. A memorable recent YA was With the Fire on High (Acevedo). I loved the drama/mystery Miracle Creek (Kim) over the summer. And The Overdue Life of Amy Byler was fun, nerdy, charming, and full of book-loving characters! Enjoy! 1mo
LiteraryinLititz Also Rainbow Rowell wrote a graphic novel about the fall! It‘s called Pumpkinheads and I‘ve heard it‘s light but fun. Another big one from several months ago was Where the Crawdads Sing (Owen) which I thought was outstanding. 1mo
See All 16 Comments
LiteraryinLititz The 2 best thrillers I read in the last few months were The Silent Patient (Michaelides) and The Wife Between Us (Hendricks, Pekkanen)- both had great twists! 1mo
JennyM Welcome back. Hope all is good with you 1mo
RainyDayReading Some new books that I know of that have been getting a lot of buzz but haven‘t read yet (waiting on Library holds) are My Lovely Wife- Adult thriller about a couple that kills to keep their marriage interesting, Wilder Girls- YA Horror about a quarantined girls school, Gideon the Ninth- Adult SciFi about lesbian necromancers in space, Darkdawn- Adult fantasy third in the Nevernight trilogy. I could give you a whole list but the character limit 🙄 1mo
Megabooks I don‘t usually love YA, but I‘m still thinking about 1mo
Ddzmini I‘ve feelin‘ and I can‘t get up 🤣🤣🤣🐱 1mo
abbsinwonderland @LiteraryinLititz I still need to read Handmaids Tale, but definitely will add that one to my list! And ooooh I love Rowell. I had no idea she released anything new! 1mo
BookwormAHN I've been enjoying An Ember in the Ashes series, A Gathering of Magic series and looking forward to @TheReadingMermaid & @Clwojick #Scarathlon in October 👻 1mo
abbsinwonderland @RainyDayReading I‘m reading Darkdawn right now. 😍 Gideon the Ninth sounds like my kinda thing! 1mo
abbsinwonderland @BookwormAHN I‘ve been wanting to read both of those series for awhile! 1mo
BookDragonNotWorm Riley Sager! I just discovered him a couple months ago. His books are SO good if you like mystery/suspense! 1mo
Gezemice @LiteraryinLititz I have read The Testaments. It is good but not as hefty as The Handmaid‘s Tale - more action and hope. Rainbow Rowell also will be releasing Wayward Son on Sept. 24th. 1mo
hes7 Welcome back! Here‘s a new thriller that‘s gotten a lot of buzz: 1mo
AnansiGirl Same as @BookDragonNotWorm, I recommend Riley Sager. His 3 books are that good, and I‘m someone who occasionally reads suspense/thrillers! 1mo

✨I know I don‘t have to explain myself to you wonderful people, but I kind of need to acknowledge some things&this is the only safe place I have.
✨Things kind of got crazy. I lost my best friend/cousin a few months ago and my mind. I have no idea who I am without her. I don‘t have enough text to explain everything, but I was/am a hot mess.
✨I‘m slowly trying to pull myself back together. I‘ll start posting more. I really did miss Litsy. 💜💜

BookDragonNotWorm Hoping things get easier for you soon. The loss of someone you love is never easy, but eventually you WILL reach a point where you smile when you remember them more than you cry. Until that time comes, please don't feel guilty. If it takes you longer than other people think it should, it's just because you love deeply. Don't apologize. 1mo

✨It took me so long to read this book.. I couldn't really get in to it.. I can't really do even a decent review of it, because I can't remember half the book. Mostly finished it to satisfy my OCD. #owlcrate 💜

Jen_Reads I attempted to read this one, but couldn‘t get past the first few pages. 11mo
abbsinwonderland @Jen_Reads I don't think you missed too much... I didn't get as interesting as I was hoping it would. It also ended with a pretty poor "cliffhanger", imo. 11mo

Dealing with Disappointment | Elizabeth Crary

✨I am so disappointed with my reading challenge so far. I was six books ahead, now I'm five books behind schedule. 😥 I really wanted to complete it this year, but with this funk idk if I'll be able to..
✨Anyone have any tips for getting out of funks? Months long ones? 💜😖

PacingTheCage Read an old favorite or two. 11mo
TheBookAddict Read something short, but engaging. It will give you the satisfaction of having completed a book in such a little time. Or listen to an audiobook, something fun. I just listened to Juliet Takes A Break and it was great. Or go for a graphic novel. 11mo
sprainedbrain I agree with @TheBookAddict ... try something short or some brain candy. That usually helps me! 11mo
See All 11 Comments
abbsinwonderland @TheBookAddict thank you! I have a few graphic novels (some are the boyfriend's, hopefully he'll let me touch them 😂) but I just can't get into audiobooks. Only one I liked was Pet Sematary cause the narrator was Michael C Hall 11mo
abbsinwonderland @sprainedbrain thank you! Will try that 11mo
sammisho I am kind of in a funk, and also really wanting to meet my goal. I am reading sappy romances. 11mo
abbsinwonderland @sammisho oooh see, that's like the one genre I can't stand. 🙈 Most of them are too Hallmarky for me. 11mo
Reggie Romance, it or horror gets me out every time. Something easy. Romance just because you know it‘s a happy ending every time. 11mo
BarbaraJean Agatha Christie and children‘s/YA usually do it for me! Especially re-reads of favorite books from childhood. Anything that‘s a “comfort read.” 11mo
GlassAsDiamonds Given the time of year, what about some of the “traditional” Christmas ones: The Night Before Christmas, the tagged, etc? They‘re all pretty short and you‘d be able to knock out four or five in a few days? 11mo
Purrfectpages I‘m also behind. The struggle is real! 11mo

✨I haven't been reading much lately.. kind of been in a funk and have had alot going on.. I just finished "Mirage" by Somaiya Daud after starting it two months ago..
✨I'm not a fan of *Pride and Prejudice", but I figured I'd give this a shot since I have enjoyed other "remakes" of it. Anyone have any thoughts of "Pride"? I'd love to hear them. ??

Wordsareweapons I liked it, but I found certain things I bit overdone. I found the main girl to be really really hard to like especially in the beginning, but the overall story was good. 11mo

He's only maybe 12 weeks old or so, but he's been doing great! Minus a little eye infection we can't seem to get cleared up.💜💜

abbsinwonderland @AlaMich Yes! I was so worried about it. Especially because for maybe two weeks Nyx was not happy about it AT ALL. It didn't help that Pers had to be in isolation for a month. 😥 But I'm really glad she finally came around. 12mo

Hank (like Kristoff) incorporates alot of the things I enjoy (even if John gave a power point on why Transformers aren't robots....(I kind of agree, but still love them)). And CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW THIS BOOK ENDED?!?!?!?! The sequel can come out any day now. 🙃📚💜

✨We had a great time on vacation. I didn't get to read as much as I thought I would. It turns out driving from Nebraska to California is pretty interesting! I also realized I have a very strong dislike of the state of Utah. 😂🤷
✨It was a very nice week in the desert without humidity. I was actually cold there! Now we're back in Nebraska and it's back to reality.🙃😭

Burghbookaddict I have a cousin that lived in LA and the first time I went to visit her all I packed was shorts and t shirts and as soon as the sun went down I was freezing! The movies make it seem like its nice and warm there all the time and that is a lie! 14mo

abbsinwonderland @BurghBookAddict Well, I expected it to be cold at the beach from the wind (the water was actually really warm which I guess is rare for that beach) but in the desert I was wearing sweats and a hoodie when it was 90 out! It's crazy how much hotter humidity makes it 14mo

abbsinwonderland @robinb Idk why, but that state really made me so mad lol. I was just irritated the whole time driving through it. There isn't anything there! Every road off the interstate is dirt roads and "no services". It was crazy. I felt sooo much better as soon as we crossed into Nevada the way there and Colorado on the way back ? definitely no offense to our Utah Littens. It's just not for me lol 14mo
robinb @abbsinwonderland I felt that way driving through TX on our way to the Grand Canyon. Will it EVER end??!! 😳😂😂😂 (no offense to our TX folks!) 😊 14mo
abbsinwonderland @robinb LOL I wanna go to Texas so bad cause SpaceX has their BFR launch pad there, but my boyfriend doesn't trust me not to try and break in 😂🙈 we won't ever be driving through Utah again though lol. Next time we'll go down through new Mexico and Arizona. We only drove through the tip of AZ, like ten minutes of it but it was beautiful 14mo
robinb @abbsinwonderland I guess I had never really thought about just how huge TX really is. 🤷🏻‍♀️ And yes, what we saw of AZ is really pretty. 14mo
abbsinwonderland @robinb Oh yeah, it is HUGE. I mean, Nebraska doesn't have much either, but at least it's green and there's a little bit more to look at. Plus we have more than dirt roads and "no services" signs ? 14mo
robinb @abbsinwonderland Exactly! It‘s rather eerie to go for miles and miles without seeing ANYTHING but Mother Earth. 14mo
abbsinwonderland @robinb This was also the first time we took my car that far. I was so nervous we would break down there and be completely screwed. No phone service either there! Plus even though it's the interstate hardly anyone was on it. A little too sketchy for me lol 14mo
robinb @abbsinwonderland Wow...a deserted interstate??!! Now that‘s just creepy! 🤯 14mo
abbsinwonderland @robinb DEFINITELY! Lol.. I had my boyfriend walk with me when I had to pee 😂 plus I always have knives and pepper spray on me just in case. 14mo

✨I know for sure I want the tagged book and LIFEL1K3 by Jay Kristoff.. But otherwise I have no idea and I know he's gonna try and rush me lol. So.. Suggestions, please?! Thank you!💜📚

BookwormAHN If you hadn't read them already I recommend A Darker Shade of Magic by V E Schwab or The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager. Have fun 😸 1y

✨This is my little stack I THINK I'm gonna bring for my vacation starting Tuesday... I keep switching out books, but I think I'll stick with these. We'll also be stopping at Barnes and Noble in Colorado so I can get more books and hopefully a book light. 🙈 I don't do long drives very well, so I'm definitely gonna need a book light.

Siege and Storm | Leigh Bardugo

✨I read this after reading Language of Thorns. I didn't really enjoy the first one as much as I thought I would, but I absolutely loved Siege and Storm. I NEED the third one.

✨I have nothing to say about this one.... I feel about it the same way I feel about To Kill A Mockingbird. 😔😑

✨I always seem to be behind on reviews. 🙈 I absolutely loved this book! I won it via a GoodReads giveaway and wasn't sure if I'd even like it at all, but nope. LOVED IT. I definitely need to read the other book like this. So full of amazing women. 💜

CouronneDhiver You‘ve been busy! 🤩 1y
abbsinwonderland @CouronneDhiver Lol a little bit.. I haven't read for a week though actually 🙈 gonna catch up big time during vacation 1y

It's Vacation Time | Lerryn Korda

✨I'm sorry I've been kind of MIA lately. I've been taking a break from social media and even been in kind of a reading slump. I do wanna say thank you to everyone who has continued to ask how my sister is. Right now, she's fine! More tests to do to figure out what's wrong. Still no real answers.
✨I also wanted to let my postal book club group know that I'll be going on vacation for a week out of state. I'll read and send off the book afterwards.💜

✨Thank you everyone for the well wishes, positive thoughts and vibes, prayers, for allowing me to be scared. Thank you.
✨They ended up not having to slow my sister's heart down (it was already at 50), but she did pass out from whatever meds they gave her. She's done with the scans now and we're anxiously awaiting for the doctors to call us back.
✨Again, thank you everyone. Today also happens to be my Momma's birthday, so hoping for good results.

Andrew65 Keeping my fingers crossed for you and sending positive thoughts. 🤞 1y
wordslinger42 I'll be praying for you all 💜 And happy birthday to your dear momma 🎂 1y

abbsinwonderland @CouronneDhiver No.. not yet. They sent the scans to someone for a third opinion before talking to us.. will hopefully have results tomorrow.. 1y

abbsinwonderland @CouronneDhiver Thank you!!! You are so kind. I've kind of been taking a break from everything. We don't have many answers yet, but they said besides her heart beating too much it seems to be healthy. Doing more tests this week. 1y
CouronneDhiver Thank heavens. Still praying. Keep us updated when you‘re able. ❤️ 1y

✨ Starting this beauty tonight. I'll be surprised if I don't end up finishing it and picking up another.
✨Here's to a long night. That's my new excuse for my 60+ TBR books. 🤷📚

✨I'm sorry to make an unbookish post, but I don't have many besides my boyfriend & family (miles away) to turn to in real life. You #Littens are my family.
✨Tomorrow, my sister goes in for a heart scan, but they'll also be slowing her heart down to make sure her blood vessels & veins are working right. She's been having extremely bad chest pains & they don't know why.
✨I just ask for some positive vibes & thoughts, because right now, I'm scared.

irre I hope everything will turn out ok. 💕💕 1y

#Booktubeathon is going on over on Instagram and today's challenge was to post a stack of books! Since @Owlcrate is sponsoring, I did all of my #Owlcrate books. I also did some of my favorite Alice in Wonderland books, favorite series, and few other favorites.📚📚

Gina That's a thing of beauty. 1y

❌Follow me on Insta for more info❌
I've been trying to help some #PageHabit subscribers. I was apart of their official Facebook group, until they blocked me for expressing my sympathy & telling people to message me if they were interested in a new box.
If anyone here is still subscribed to PageHabit, I highly recommend finding a new subscription box. I'm sorry to anyone I recommended this box to- if you'd like a code for #OwlCrate, let me know.💜

Thousand-Lives I just cancelled my subscription after receiving July‘s “surprise” box. 1y
abbsinwonderland @Thousand-Lives They surprise was you being screwed over. 😤 I'm truly so upset, I can't imagine how you feel. I'm sorry. I hope they right their wrongs, but it seems they're just digging themselves a deeper hole.. 1y
Thousand-Lives @abbsinwonderland Totally not your fault! I was lucky because although not in my selected genre, the book I received is one I will read. I just didn‘t want to continue doing business with them after their tricky “surprise.” 1y
See All 15 Comments
abbsinwonderland @Thousand-Lives I just feel bad. I know what my box means to me and how much I look forward to it. PageHabit has been shady since Gabe left. I think he saw something like this happening and didn't wanna be apart of it.. 1y
Cailey_Mac Awww I don‘t know the scenario is, but I think it‘s awful when a person who runs a company finds it necessary to be rude right off the bat to you! I had a similar experience ( I won‘t name the bookish company ) in which I simply asked where my tracking email was as it had been well over a month since I ordered it, and was met with a very nasty email 🙃 Let‘s just say I will stay with either OwlCrate, Uppercase, or Fairyloot from now on. 1y
abbsinwonderland @Cailey_Mac This whole situation is insane! Lawsuits, possibly. I totally agree. I'm sticking with those ones also! Someone also showed me a Fairyloot knock off (still GREAT quality items), but it's in the states! So I might check that one out, too. 1y
Cailey_Mac @abbsinwonderland Yikes! Well, sounds like karma came around fast! And oooo a US version of Fairyloot?! Always worth a try! 1y
abbsinwonderland @Cailey_Mac I thought so, too! It's called FaeCrate if you wanna check it out. 1y
MallenNC I still haven't even received my July box, and no tracking for the second month in a row. I've seen a lot of complaints from those who have gotten their boxes. I just cancelled, and I don't know if that means I won't get the July box (since I have no idea if it ever shipped) or if they'll start the cancellation with August. Incredibly frustrating. 1y
abbsinwonderland @MallenNC I'm so sorry you're going through this mess. I wish I could help. There's so much going on with this whole situation and PageHabit isn't being very professional or transparent about it. This is really gonna sink them, if they weren't already going under. 1y
MallenNC @abbsinwonderland Thank you! I honestly would just like them to apologize at this point. On the bright side, this saves money I can spend on other books! 1y
abbsinwonderland @MallenNC They apologized extremely sarcastically to me (not even subbed) in an email and I just about lost it. A public statement (sincere would be ideal) is definitely needed I think. And that's a great way to look at it! More money for other books. 💜📚 1y
MallenNC @abbsinwonderland I just looked at your IG and saw that. I work in PR and that is not the way to respond to customer/group member. 1y
abbsinwonderland @MallenNC I don't even work in PR or customer service, but I think my reply was pretty darn good. Especially for how mad I was. I was/am flabbergasted by the whole situation 1y
MallenNC Me too. When I emailed them a week or so ago they told me sorry about no tracking, but didn't give any indication on when my box would arrive. Clearly they're out of their depth, but oh well. 1y

✨ 1) Nope, nope, nope 🙈
✨ 2) Pens or extra page tabs.
✨ 3) Weekly, sometimes more than once a week.
✨ 4) I WANT A WAND. Anyone's will do.
✨ 5) I honestly don't borrow books from anyone. I rarely even borrow books from the library. Their for sale section is were it's at. 👌

abbsinwonderland @CatLass007 I am feeling alright! Hopefully good enough to get a little outside work done. I got just enough sleep to be able to function. 😝 How are you doing??? We seem to be on the same sleep schedule, I hope you got some as well! 1y
