I officially need alcohol to finish this book.

Yossarian You mean you need to take some Henry IV Heritage Cognac out of your little black Louis Vuitton purse? 7y
AnnaDesourdy ☝🏻️😂 7y
brittnaypozen @Yossarian & I'll only drink it out of my Louboutins of course 7y

Chelsey 😂😂 I've been very entertained by everyone's reaction to this book. More entertained than you were reading it I dare say. 7y
acc5446 yes. all the booze for this wackadoo book. 7y
Elisa Ah, finally! I was wondering when someone was going to admit that 😄😄 I figured at some point someone would use either alcohol or a tub of ice cream as motivation/distraction — it definitely sounds like one is needed 🤐 7y
Bookgirl So many pans on this book, was just saying on another post it makes me want to read it even more to see if it lives up to its negative hype. I'm going to start it today! 7y
MrBook I enjoy pairings 😎👍🏻. 6y

Just ordered a few of these for my little ones! 'Little Edgar the Raven is having a tough time minding his mother. Dinnertime, cleanup-time, and bedtime are all met with one word―“NEVERMORE!"' How freaking cute!

1984 | George Orwell
post image

"It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words." TBT #2 This novel started my love affair with Orwell. A haunting, dystopian fiction that's so seemingly real. Big brother is watching you!

Trav One of the best classics I've read! 7y
Jamesmelvinmitchell My first dystopian novel, and never looked back. 7y

Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront
post image

Time for TBT #1! Don't worry your pretty little head Heathcliff, you'll always have my love. Emily Brontë created the most beautiful anti-hero that I find myself strangely drawn to. If you've never read Wuthering Heights you're missing out. Also go see Laurence Olivier play him in the 1939 film!

[DELETED] 3216391035 Sad to say I've not read this-but will! 7y

LoBro I've never had any love for Heathcliff, and I'm not sure that Catherine and Heathcliff had much love for each other either. But it is a great cautionary tale of the sins of the parents being visited on the children (and grand children...) 7y
brittnaypozen @MKWoods I just saw the movie the other day. I have the book and haven't had a chance to read it yet. I'll def put it to the top of my stack! 7y
SusanInTiburon Actually reading this now -- my husband and I are taking turns reading it aloud. It is an astonishing and elemental work, but OH MY! So much brutality! I can't really love any of the characters, though I admire them as vivid originals. 7y

This is most certainly the worst possible book for a hypochondriac of my severity to be reading, but here we go!

stargazerblue49 I will be starting my own residency (family med, not neurosurg) at the end of the month and I'm hoping to read this before I start. It was one of those books that I had to pick up because I had an instant connection to it. 7y
mllemay Same feeling here! Not in a place where I can read this right now. Hopefully someday. 7y
Alpha Oh this was sooooo good ! 7y
AmbityScambity This definitely isn't an easy read, but it's worth it if you're able. 7y

Keatsknitter @AmbityScambity i agree the topic is difficult, but he brings such personal warmth and maturity to it i felt there was great balance. He took the scare out of the issue for me. 7y

BookJunkie429 I really enjoyed this book. I'm probably going to end up rereading it again, so I can finally read the other books. 7y
Heatherine @brittnaypozen I really would love to hear what you think. The idea of it is great. I bought the actual book (which I almost never do anymore) because the cover really caught my eye. 7y

Melissamara This is one of my YA series .i just read the third installment .i loved it 7y
ultrabookgeek What's a read out? 7y
HotMessJess Free books are the best books- but let's be real, any books are the best books!!!! ❤️📚 7y
Maude_Lynne @Heatherine I was super disappointed by the time I finished it too. 7y
brittnaypozen @sharimichele If you go onto Barnes & Nobles website and type in Readouts they have a whole page. Everyday they put new books up where you can read a couple chapters for free. It's awesome because you can really get a good feel of a book before deciding to buy it! 7y
brittnaypozen @sharimichele Also, once a month they upload a book in its entirety for free! They release a few chapters per day 7y
Heatherine @Maude_Lynne I think it would have been so much better if it wasn't a series. Just one bigger book that includes everything they hinted at. I didn't read any of the other books because I was so disappointed with it. 7y
Maude_Lynne @Heatherine PRECISELY. I understand the publishers wanting to make more money off a remake, but when the reader suffers, time to check the greed. It turned me off from her other books, which is a disservice to her talent. 7y

Kafka on the Shore | Haruki Murakami
post image

#TBT 3: Murakami can do no wrong in my eyes. This novel has his typical metaphysical view of the world; expanding on the relation between dreams & reality. There are two main characters, each with alternating chapters. If you're into Oedipal curses, brutal murders & cats this book is for you

OSChamberlain Omg I'm into all 3 of those things! 7y

Battle Royale | Koushun Takami
post image

Although I'm loath to admit, my second #TBT of the day was originally introduced to me by an ex. Said ex despised reading (horrid, I know), but raved about this book so I gave it a shot. So happy I did! The best way for me to describe it is Lord of the Flies on crack.

brittnaypozen FYI the movie is also great! 7y
stargazerblue49 I read this book because of an ex, too! At least it turned out to be a fantastic read! 7y

Seonjoon OH MAN I watched the movie version... 7y
ibeeeg This is an intense read. When people would cringe over the Hunger Games, I would say that Hunger Games is nothing compared to Battle Royale. 7y
kammartinez Ahhh, I love this book. Saw the movie first, but then got gifted the book by a friend and pretty much loved it. And yeah, I hear you on Hunger Games vs this book: this one's way WAY more brutal. 7y
brittnaypozen @Seonjoon ahh you have to read the book! It's so good 7y
Zakia Have this one on my shelf... It's a summer read for me now. I find it difficult reading big books during term time - even more so when they are about students killing students! Wonder what my darlings would think of me enjoying this little gem! 😂 7y
brittnaypozen @Zakia ahaha that's hilarious! I hope you get to enjoy it this summer!! 7y

Let the Right One In | John Ajvide Lindqvist
post image

Today's #TBT theme is translated works I love! This novel is terrifying and creepy; just the way vampire stories should be. The characters are complex & endearing and overall the book is full of mystery and love. I'd classify it as a dark bildungsroman. Side note: the movie was pretty great too!

brendanmleonard Oh doing TBT is a great idea! I tried doing Friday Reads here too and might again! 7y
brittnaypozen @brendanmleonard I love that! I'll have to join in with you 😊 7y

A Midsummer Night's Dream | William Shakespeare
post image

You guys didn't think I'd leave this out of my Fae TBT, did you? I believe anything Shakespeare is brilliant. Clever & funny, I highly recommend this one; especially if you're not big on the tragedies. Puck will always be the number one fairy in my eyes. Also who else is pumped for the BBC special?

PurityofEssence @brittnaypozen I agree! Well, maybe not everything Shakespeare wrote... (Looking at you, Merry Wives of Windsor 😒) 7y

Fae TBT #3 It's definitely been a good 14 years since I've read this, but it's a great series that I thoroughly enjoyed. I never thought I would enjoy a faerie book set on the Jersey Shore, but it ended up being a super cute & fast read

Melissamara Did you read Holly black book darkest part of the forest .it has fae in it .it is good 7y
brittnaypozen @Melissamara no, I haven't! I'll for sure look it up, thanks (: 7y

I decided to make today a fae TBT, thanks in part, to all my favorite makeup companies launching new products. I've bought so many highlighters in the span of a couple hours that I'll be glowing like a faerie for sure. I really do love this series, even though it's a pretty typical YA romance plot!

Wicked Lovely | Melissa Marr
post image

First #TBT of the day! Obsessed doesn't even begin to cover it. I have an unhealthy infatuation with fairies & Melissa Marr is by far my favorite YA/Urban Fantasy author. Until I'm whisked away by a fairy king I'll just have to settle with reading about it.

youngish-adult Yes!! I haven't read this series in years! One of my first YA fantasy reads - been hooked ever since! 7y

Maude_Lynne Have you read Holly Black's The Darkest Part of the Forest? Depending on how twisty your fantasy about fae kings is, it may realize it for you, in a literary way, obviously. 7y

I've been so busy with my books that I've amassed a giant magazine pile. I think I'll be working through these & the Nest today; both tasks I find tedious. Anyone else having a problem getting through the Nest??

I consider Elizabeth Bennet to be my spirit animal & Mr. Darcy is my dream man so anyone trying to recreate Pride & Prejudice has a tall order to fill. I LOVED this book. Sittenfeld perfectly blended today's time frame with humor & all of the characteristics that I originally fell in love with.

ramyasbookshelf That's so good to know. I have usually hated retell Inga and I try to stay away from them all.. But this one seems to be different! 7y
jmkeene Just bought this, so I'm glad to hear that. I LOVED American Wife but hated Prep, so I've been a little nervous about Sittenfield. 7y

Gezemice @brittnaypozen I am loving the idea of the book club, but I just looked up the reviews on Goodreads for Maestra, and they are bad. Many people are bailing. I think I will skip this, too, but can you keep me in mind for the next one? Thanks! 7y
Donnasmiles Should we follow all that are in club? 7y
brittnaypozen @Gezemice yes of course! I'll be sure to keep you included 😄 7y

Morning! I haven't been on litsy long, but so far I've met such wonderful people. I'd love to start a book club. I know it's hard to have discussions since we're confined to 300 characters per comment, but I think it will be fun! For our first book I had Maestra in mind, but I'm open to suggestions!

brittnaypozen I was also thinking of When Breath Becomes Air or Everything I Never Told You. All 3 of these books seem to be getting mixed reviews. (People seem to either love it or hate it.) Which is why I feel like they'll be perfect for discussion! 7y
shawnmooney I love the idea and had been thinking that the @Litsy folks might design a better way to thread a book discussion in Litsy--although there'd be nothing stopping us from trying to work within the 300-c comment limit for starters. 7y
youngish-adult I am DEFINITELY in :) 7y

ShelfofUnreadBooks I'd certainly be up for that! And I've already got Everything I Never Told You on the TBR. Maestra sounds amazing but is only out in HB in the UK at the mo. 7y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds like a great idea, but yes, I also wish Litsy had a better format for discussions. Even getting notifications when people comment after you on a post would be nice, especially when they tag you, but I don't seem to be getting those. 7y
Jessicav I'd be up for trying this! It sounds like Litsy is really open to feedback and making improvements so we should definitely try things out and let them know. 7y
Sue Sounds like it might be fun 7y
TheWellReadOwl I'm in! 7y
brittnaypozen @shawnmooney yes, I totally agree! A thread board on here would be great 7y
Paiger1979 Sounds fun! I'm new to Litsy and would love to try something like this. 7y
brittnaypozen @Riveted Reader Melissa I did notice that when I try to tag you in things it doesn't work. I'm wondering if it's because of the spaces? 7y
brittnaypozen & woo! I'm so excited that so many of you are on board!! I'll make a post at the end of the day tagging everyone that wants to participate ❤️❤️❤️ 7y
brittnaypozen Also if you guys want to comment with any book suggestions I can tally it up later and we can go with the consensus 😊 7y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Hmm... Worth a shot, let's see if that works. 7y
Melissamara This book is on my Tbr list .i love to be in the book club 7y
brittnaypozen @Riveted_Reader_Melissa just testing to see if you get this tag now 😄 7y
Shortstack I'm going to do my best. Already have another book club and school, but here is hoping! 7y
brittnaypozen @Shortstack yes I'd love for you to join!! I figured a lot of people here were in book clubs already so I think we'll stick to the typical 1 book per month with biweekly "meetings" 7y
QueenAnne I would really love a book club 😍 my book loving friends only read in Dutch (which I rarely do). Problem is not all books in English are easy to find, and online ordering costs quite a lot.. But I'm happy to enjoy books vicariously through all of you 😍 7y
Bookzombie I'm in! This sounds like fun! 7y

BookJunkie429 How long do we have to read the book? 7y
Reese_Pearly.Pages @remarabbit I also read this book. It wasn't that impressive. My disappointment mostly came from how it was marketed. I'm so tired of everything being the next Gone Girl or Girl on the Train. This was nothing like either of those books. 7y
Reese_Pearly.Pages @brittnaypozen I would definitely try your book club out- Maestra wasn't a hit for me. It was... So-So. Some will like it, others hate it. Go in with low expectations. Low. Expectations. 7y
brittnaypozen @BookJunkie429 I figure that everyone on here is already in the middle of a few books so I thought we could stick to the standard 1 book per month with biweekly "meetings" ? 7y
brittnaypozen @Reese_Pearly.Pages oh no! I've heard it's definitely a love it or hate it book 7y
BookJunkie429 @brittnaypozen Oh good, I have to put the book on hold first. I didn't want to miss this. 7y

Last tbt of this week is my well loved & highly annotated copy of Shakespeare's the Merchant of Venice! For some reason I find that a lot of people overlook this one, which is a shame because it's brilliant. Although Othello holds my heart, this is a close second. It's absolutely hilarious!

Sue This was my first Shakespeare courtesy of grade 10 English, which began my life long obsession with the Bard. So good! 7y
Ms.Story Othello is my fav too!! 7y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Such a better choice for school, my high school was stuck on the tragedies. 7y

brittnaypozen @Riveted Reader Melissa agreed! I'm dreading what the book list will consist of when my boys are in school lol. It seems like Shakespeare is being replaced by Stephanie Meyer 😂 7y
akfreeborn @brittnaypozen rest assured my kids are still reading lots of Shakespeare in high school and they are performing The Tempest for fall play! No Twilight to be had on their reading lists yet! 7y

Ok guys, time for tbt #2 & my favorite book as a child. Truman Capote, you beautiful man, thank you for creating Holly Golightly. Such a strong, witty & spontaneous character; she did what she wanted when she wanted & (much to my husband's dismay) I attribute my disposition to her character.

[DELETED] 3216391035 Love love LOVE! 7y

By far, the best book I have ever read in my life. I read this book after someone very dear to me died & this was instrumental in helping me cope with the loss. Murakami is a brilliant writer. He has this beautiful, metaphysical view of the world & if you want to escape reality I highly recommend it

mllemay Books that help you work through grief are everything. Just one of the reasons I love literature so much. 7y
Ammie He is my all time favorite. I'm glad to hear his words were a comfort to you. 7y

Rhondareads I would tweet them or Facebook message or email.I am sure they would replace your copy.In case you can't tell I'm from New York very assertive. 7y
brittnaypozen @Rhondareads ahaha yes! I'm from New York as well! I'm the queen of customer service complaints 7y
Anei I feel like I should go check my copy now. Page. By. Page. 7y
kammartinez That happens sometimes, much like you can buy a shiny new tech toy and have it turn out to be a lemon right out of the box. I doubt you'll have trouble getting that replaced free of charge :). 7y
brittnaypozen @Anei I was wondering if maybe they got a bad batch in 7y
BookishFeminist Oh no this would drive me nuts! I'd totally ask if they'd mind sending you a copy that isn't messed up. 7y
steph_hashes_tags Oh no, that's the worst! 7y
Sara_Planz It says on their website that if you contact member services, they will send out a replacement book for free! I'm a member too so this is good to know. 7y

Anei @brittnaypozen ye gods, I hope so. 7y
Spiderfelt I am appalled, over and over, by the poor quality binding I see lately. 7y
brittnaypozen I know, it's horrible. I'm considering keeping it though just because I don't want to stop reading it to send it back @Spiderfelt 7y
LoBro That's just sad! 7y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa That's just not right! But I know how you feel.... I once was reading and in the middle of the scene, the dialogue switched to something else entirely. On closer look, there was like 50 pages missing in the middle. A printing error. I had to return it. 7y
brittnaypozen @Riveted Reader Melissa that's so horrible!! I'd be so upset 7y

Ways to Disappear | Idra Novey
post image

I'm so happy to have come across this novel while perusing the racks in my local book store. What a beautifully written debut novel for Novey. Strangely, I find that the books I enjoy the most leave me feeling disappointed with characters decisions. All in all a fast read that I thoroughly enjoyed!

Notafraidofwords I was going to read this, but a couple of people told me it was a let down. 7y
Garyrej Read a sample, liked it 7y
brittnaypozen @Ryanira9 yeah I wasn't really expecting much from it; it was just a book I threw in with my last purchase, but I really liked it! I tend to gravitate toward books without the happiest endings though just because I find them more realistic lol 7y
See All 6 Comments
brittnaypozen @Garyrej it's beautifully written! I've never read any of Idra Novey's poems, but you can definitely get a sense of her style from the novel 7y
Shortstack @brittnaypozen - I love books that have less than favorable main characters. If you can make me want to follow the story of someone who isn't a fully good person, you're probably a good writer! 7y
brittnaypozen @Shortstack exactly!! I couldn't agree more. I also tend to gravitate toward books that are a little out there so this was a good mix 7y

Bkwurm Have you read the other books in the Austen project? I find them to be hit or miss. Still excited to read this one tho! 🤓 7y
brittnaypozen @Bkwurm I read Sense & Sensibility by Joanna Trollope, but haven't had a chance to get to the other two yet. I thought it was ok. I know Eligible has gotten rave reviews so I'm excited to read it too!! When it comes to Austen reworks I'm hard to please though lol 7y

Welcome to my night 📚🍷

Shortstack Can't wait to hear what you think about this one! I keep hearing good things! 7y
brittnaypozen @Shortstack to be honest, I'm having a hard time getting through it! It's just not keeping my interest which is really disappointing since its gotten such great reviews. I'm only a third in though so I'll definitely keep you posted!! 7y
Shortstack @brittnaypozen thanks! I've been on the fence about picking it up. 7y
brittnaypozen @Shortstack yeah I'm usually leery about books that get so much celebrity attention lol 7y
