Omg this episode of Ologies is like blowing my mind, I didn't know that procrastination was a mental health issue (or should be seen as one) and also I feel like they're describing me 100% #nfn21

#two4tuesday @TheSpineView

1. No! Sadly :( I started late this year and just, now I had a bit of slump, let's see how far I get. My goal is 70 books, I'm at 28?

2. Not specifically, I'd like to get through as much of my netgalley shelf as I can tho :) at least the backlog bc ofc I keep requesting more titles 😆😆

Anyone who hasn't done this yet, @Kenyazero? Have you? Lol there's many ppl on my tl who have...👀💦💦

TheSpineView Don't stress over a number! I think just reading something is an accomplishment. Thanks for playing! 1w

I'm late to #novelnovember but here's my try!
@Andrew65

📌 Finish current audiobook
📌 More podcasts for #nfn21
📌 Finish 2 more netgalley backlog titles

Four days WILL I BE ABLE TO DO IT?! 🤣🤣

Andrew65 Good luck, you can do this! 👍 1w

#weekendreads
Thanks @Kenyazero 😌
@rachelsbrittain

1. I'm currently going through my #netgalley shelf so maybe shadow of the hunter is next!
2. The Last Graduate, a month ago, but I'm listening to The Bookseller of Florence now...it's taking a while xD
3. Funny enough, I had some holds come in...but I'm not longer in the country o(-(

Not exactly weekend reads 👀💦💦 tbh I didn't read over the last weekend 😱😱

rachelsbrittain It happens! The only part that's really weekend specific is the hashtag anyway 😄 1w

Oops, not Sunday anymore but here's this #sundayfunday post! Thanks @Kenyazero 😊😊 @ozma.of.oz

1. No, I read slow and often can't stick to TBRs
2. I'm a huge fantasy fan so I'd vote the fantasy route 😉
3. I like Kenyas answer for this one! But yeah, I think it's good that books make us think and discuss, that they challenge our boundaries in good ways, those tend to be some of my favorite reads! Debates don't always take us anywhere so...

ozma.of.oz Fantasy always makes for some great discussions! Thank you for sharing! 🧡 6d

Oops, haven't touched my bookspin or doublespin books :") I was too busy taking forever to finish #4 which was a history of death in 17th century england, interesting read and fell in line with my previous bingo read

Finally finished my first #nfn21 book!! Orz

Idk why it took me so long since this was actually easy to read and an interesting topic. Some moments got a bit gruesome and I couldn't help but be grossed out and just...speechless, while others were what I was expecting. The author goes over the types of deaths, who it affected, and what happened after a death (funerals, wills). Would read more on the topic #history #england #death

I can see why I requested this title! My first Nov title is from my #netgalley backlog and is about a monster society existing parallel to the midwest's (and the world's but in this book the Midwest's) 1920s. The romance is pretty simple, instalove but the characters charismatic so I let it be. My interest did wane a bit towards the end tho. The villain was meh and the pacing felt rushed. Still, did enjoy! #fantasy

Can't find on Litsys but also can't input?? 🤔🤔

Anyway, my last Oct read and another #netgalley backlog. It was a mixed bag for me. Some stories I didn't care for bc they were scifi or PTSD or drugs related, but most I really enjoyed the book. The stories were sad, happy, inspiring, and just, as the title says, Abt queers who don't quit! #shortstories

Catch me ignoring my plans and jumping to this #netgalley backlog title 😂 Although I did finally start the Bookseller of Florence on my nightly walk so I'm not too off task 👍 #nfn21

While scrolling through Twitter, I found this #podcast that's all about words and their usage (by Merriam Webster) and it's been pretty interesting. The episodes are short (~10min) and not all episodes are as interesting as others, but they all make you think about words and how we use them and sometimes, how little sense they make #nfn21 #nonfictionnovember

I started off the year with quite a few #nonfiction titles but uh, ended up in the YA section at some point 😆 but now it's time to get back to some of my NF tbr, and maybe go through the #nonfictionnovember tag to see what books and podcasts and more you all recommend 😏

@rsteve388 I'll probs start with The Bookseller of Florence!

I MADE MY FIRST BOOKISH PURCHASE IN JAPAN!!! And ofc I had to get the latest volume of jjk for my collection and the company slave manga!! I can't remember the full title but it's a BL isekai and just 💕💕 I also got Blue Period, which I plan to use to start learning Japanese 👀💦💦 It's a copy meant to be annotated (not my main way of learning, just one related to my tastes)

There will be more later kekeke

Did some reshuffling so my recent reads fit!

Braised Pork is the new black cover (was going to use for writer but the summary misled me?!) which means I moved Deadly Education to audiobook, which moved Iron Widow to a new spot: murder! Second Sister then slots into mystery to be solved #bookishbingo #bookishfirst

Another #netgalley backlog title and just, it was SO GOOD! It's a detective/revenge book that touches on some Very Heavy topics and is very blatantly political and critical of HK and capitalist society (and just ppl in gen), but it's SO engaging! I really enjoyed the characters we met, in fact, it had a bit of a Death Note vibe to it. Kind of upset about one thing but it really worked out well. Recommended! #outstandingoctober @Andrew65

So sad, was hoping to read another Andy Carpenter story before it came out, maybe help my #netgalley score WHICH I'm finding is just as hard to bring up as credit score 😂 And these NF ones sounded so good too! I do have You've Reached Sam tho so that was just going to be a freebie for my score if they gave it to me 👀

Wow, this was quite the read! I'm usually not the biggest fan of #fiction but this was very well written, very interesting and unique. A story about a woman whose husband dies and she then goes on a physical and spiritual journey to find purpose. Every word counted for something and Idk, it almost felt like an experience for me too, it's hard to describe #magicalrealism #netgalley

I just want to scream about the end of this book!!! I figured something like that would happen but still 🤯🤯🤯. In this book we span a whole year (vs. B1) so it felt a bit quick, but also like not a lot happened on screen, which is why I felt a bit meh over it. Still, it was just as snarky as B1, which I liked. Can't wait til B3, I don't even know what to do now OMG 🤯 #yafantasy

Rereading so I can check out book two and it's just as fun a read as the first time! There are a lot of breaks between the story where El talks to us but it still reads very well. Plus, she's so snarky and Orion is just the cutest. I'd forgotten that ending tho so now I'm ready! Also, fun that this time I listened to the audiobook #yafantasy #magic

This book is AMAZING and I recommend everyone read it to get their fill of female RAGE and DESTRUCTION. This book touches on topics of gender, sexuality, Chinese traditions and customs, beauty standards, oppression of women, and so much more. All in a world of giant Mechas inspired by mythology. It's such a wild and fun read but also tense and challenging ⭐ 10/5! #yafantasy #lgbt

I've been eyeing this book for a while now and just, it was SO GOOD!! A really nice story about #friendship, choosing who you want to be, childhood illnesses, healing, k-pop, and so much more 💕 The art is beautiful and while the tone is generally fun, things do get rather tense and scary towards the end #graphicnovel #middlegrade #identity #chineseamerican #family ⭐ 5/5!

This book was recommended by a frequent customer and I'm glad I finally got around to reading it. It's such a sad story. We follow the lives of four girls and a woman who live in the same building, the hardships they face as women in a society that sees them as objects, and how that has shaped their views of themselves and each other. Definitely recommend! #fiction #foundfamily

TheAromaofBooks They aren't bad at all, it's just that Leon's first-person sections feel a little choppy at first because his stream-of-thought process isn't exactly the way mine works - but once I got into his groove & got to know his character better, it felt like a good reflection of who he is. 5mo
