Die Alone | Simon Kernick
post image
Pickpick

Fast paced thriller written in multiple POVs that adds more suspense to the whole narrative, Die Alone doesn't let up until the end. A great book to pick especially when you've got a few hours to spend waiting somewhere, this is the perfect company!

Thick as Thieves | Megan Whalen Turner

This is a series I love recommending especially to fantasy fans. The mix of mythology, politics and scheming thieves (fine thief) is so delightfully done. As much as I loved seeing Costis again, I miss reading from Gen's POV. #litsygram

Nobody should talk to a child like that and no child should talk back to an adult like that. The violent words thrown around in this book was something I did not expect in a much loved children's book either.

Starting this today. I read it before as a kid and since I can't remember much, I thought I should do reread. Works for a challenge I'm doing in Goodreads too!!

What We Talk About When We Talk About Love is a collection of short stories tackling all kinds of love from the good, to the dangerous, and to the destructive kind.

The prose feels like jumping right into a conversation and when things start getting interesting, you get called out and when you return you realize that the conversation has moved on to another topic but as interesting. Great read!

The Likeness: A Novel | Tana French
post image
Pickpick

This book explored the boundaries of love in friendship — the good, the bad and the dangerous. It put forth dangerous ideas and if you aren't grounded enough, you'd waver.

Also, I disliked Cassie so much. My opinion of her ran from hypocrite to self righteous to selfish.

Not as good as the first but highly recommended. Oh and be ready for the ride.

Dear morning person,

I have great admiration for you. The way you excitedly get up and prepare for what the day has in store for you. Please give me tips. I find getting up in the morning so hard to do. I force myself to open my eyes and drag myself out of bed. Any kind of help will do.

Thank you!

Night owl in need,
Kathleen

missevievelyn Can‘t tell if this is a serious request lol! But I‘m probably a morning person... I set one alarm by my bed and another a for half hour later across the room, so that I can lounge but still am forced to get out of bed... I usually get up at 6:30 or 7, but then reward myself by reading in bed for an hour, since I don‘t have to leave till 8:20. First thing I do once up is make my coffee and read! 2y
clutteredbooks @missevievelyn serious in a way that I'm late 3/5 times haha! I keep putting my alarm to snooze and then go back to bed. 2y
missevievelyn @wanderful.books hahaha well putting an alarm on the other side of the room is pretty wretched, but it helps with that! 2y
clutteredbooks @missevievelyn I should try that!!! 2y

Rebel Queen: A Novel | Michelle Moran
post image
Pickpick

“For nonreaders, life is simply what they touch and see, not what they feel when they open the pages of a play and are transported to the Forest of Arden or Illyria. Where the world is full of a thousand colors for those who love books, I suspect it is simply black & gray to everyone else. A tree is a tree to them; it is never a magical doorway to another world populated with beings that don‘t exist here.”

The Magician's Nephew was full of adventures indeed. I can't decide how to rate it though. I was wary about the happenings in the last few chapters and it is what's refraining me from giving this a solid 5. Still a good read though!

Interim Goddess of Love | Mina V. Esguerra

Girl, no one ever told you about the stranger rule? I get that you're a goddess of sorts but you are sooo not Supergirl or Wonderwoman or Catwoman--- if you get my drift. I get that you're on a mission of love but I believe there could have been other ways for you to get the guy alone and talk to him. 😥

Chachic Hmm I guess it's a small school? So she wasn't afraid to hitch a ride with someone from there. 3y
clutteredbooks @Chachic still illogical for me. A lot of ways she could've done to talk to him. She just wanted to ask him to retake some test, she could've just outright asked him. Plausible reason anyway. The hitch a ride just sounds ridiculous for me 😂 3y

Love Story | Erich Segal
post image

It's short, sweet, a bit sappy but still a good read. I disagree, however, with "Love means never having to say you're sorry." For me love encompasses forgiveness & humility and that means you are ready to say sorry when you have done wrong. When the role is reversed & they're the one asking forgiveness from you, you accept it because love keeps no record of wrongs. But I guess we all have different perspectives on love :)
What do you think?

I can't find the correct book title but Brene Brown's Daring Greatly talks about vulnerability too. I don't think this should be classified as self-help--- it was more of a guide to self reflection. It was an enlightening audiobook and it was great listening to the author herself! A lot of what she said was interesting and really had me thinking. Listen to it and you'll understand what I mean. And that's it am off to bed! 💕
