⭐️Announcing the #READTHATSERIESCLUB⭐️ Many of us are mood readers, I am as well, so it's important to leave a little room for those moments when we feel like switching up what we're reading to break the monotony. Every two months we‘ll choose two series to read over the next two months.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⁣⁣
Series selection for Jan/Feb:
📚Cormon Strike series by Robert Galbraith
📚The Broken Earth series by N.K. Jemisin

emz711 Oh yessssss the fifth season! Enjoy every minute and then read it again! 2y

This Tender Land: A Novel | William Kent Krueger
post image
Pickpick

This Tender Land was the most beautiful story I've read this year. Krueger did a fantastic job of getting you to feel for each of these characters. I wanted to protect them, I was rooting for them, I wanted the best for them, I hurt for them, and I felt like I knew them. I was enthralled by the situations and characters these kids encountered along the way; everything was so well-written and fully developed. #thistenderland

The Menagerie #3: Krakens and Lies | Tui T. Sutherland, Kari H. Sutherland

I love seeing how much my grandson enjoys reading. He's in the 2nd grade and he's an advanced reader. His mom reads with him daily, he reads on his own, and when he's at our house on the weekends, we read together as well. He visits the library with me, and enjoys perusing the aisles and checking out new books. I also enjoy buying him books. Here is part of my latest #bookoutlethaul with all the books I purchased for my grandson.

This month I don't have a set tbr. Instead, I got a bunch of books I have an interest in reading, and I'm going to pick up and read whatever tickles my fancy. I love all the books I picked up. All but three are from my library. I'm thinking I'm going to start my reading month with #TheStarlessSea. ⁣

Wanderers: A Novel | Chuck Wendig
post image
Pickpick

Every now and then you totally hype yourself up for a book and it lives up to every single expectation. This book is 780 pages, but it's good from start to finish. There was no point where it lulled for me or where my eyes glazed over, there was no point where I felt bored. I was fully engaged. I'm in total awe of what Chuck Wendig with the story. I loved this book so much and I have so many thoughts and feelings about it. #wanderers

The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides
post image

I just discovered Bookly yesterday and used it for the first time today. It's a pretty cool app. I'm definitely going to continue using the free version to see if it's something I want to keep using and upgrade to the Pro version. Anyone else using Bookly?

MrBook I‘ve used it for one book. My problem is in remembering to stop and start it. 😂👏🏻 3y
jessinikkip I havent used it that I recall. If i have it was AGES ago. What kind of limitations are there on the free version? 3y
bookladyreads @jessinikkip No iCloud support, no global stats, you can only add 10 books, they only give you one ambient sound to listen to, and you can't use the personal assistant or create graphic quote cards. The Pro version isn't that expensive, I still want to use it for a few more books before I decide to buy it or not. It's $29.99/yr, but right now you can get it 12 months for $19.99. 3y
jessinikkip Thanks @bookladyreads !! I may check it out and try it 3y
bookladyreads @jessinikkip I think it's worth a try. I do like the idea of being able to track books and pages read and seeing how long it takes me to complete books. It's also a nice little feature being able to listen to ambient sounds while reading. It almost seems like Goodreads should acquire Bookly because they are the perfect pairing. 3y

The Silent Patient was a very well-written book. The story was interesting and definitely kept you engaged. It's the kind of story you can read in one sitting as I did today.

The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides
post image

About fireworks?
About love. About how often we mistake love for fireworks - for drama and dysfunction. But real love is very quiet, very still. It's boring, if seen from the perspective of high drama. Love is deep and calm-and constant. I imagine you do give Kathy love-in the true sense of the word. Whether or not she is capable of giving it back to you is another question.

quote

The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides

It's hard to imagine two women more different than Kathy and Alicia. Kathy makes me think of light, warmth, color, and laughter. When I think of Alicia, I think only of depth, of darkness, of sadness. Of silence.
