Maybe This Time | Kasie West

Cute, light and fluffy with a little bit of heart. Kasie West's books are quick, easy reads that I can usually finish in one sitting. Her books always make me smile.

**side note, now Maybe This Time from Cabaret is stuck in my head** 😜😂

Eyelit And now it‘s stuck in my head. Thanks. 😂 18h

Absolutely adored this book!! Lemony Snicket has such a way with words. I used to keep notes with all of my favorite quotes of his that I have read through the years. Now most of my favorites are collected within these pages and with beautiful illustrations...what is not to love!! I need to add this book to my collection.

Day off work & it will be to hot to do anything outside for the rest of the week. Seems like a good time to hunker down inside and work my way through some of my library books.

When the cat falls asleep on your physical book (that's what I get for looking up something on my phone) so you have switch over to your ebook instead. She is lucky she is so cute.

jackilynn @That-Bookish-Hiker I watched the 1st episode and was slightly confused as to what was going on. I figured I would pick up the book before I went back to series that way I would understand it better. I am really enjoying the book so far & am eager to get back to the tv series. 1w

I put this series down for awhile after devouring Theft of Swords and I honestly can't remember why. Diving back in again and I am quickly reminded again how much I love Hadrian and Royce.

My Stephen King themed Quarterly box from Spearcraft Book Box arrived today and I am loving it. These are just a few of the awesome goodies that were jam packed into the box (the items pictured not the books). There is mug with the same design as the bookmark & it just may be my new favorite. The SS Georgie candle smells amazing & I may be obsessed with the Pet Semetary pin (if only I had a vest or something to wear it on).

Not my favorite by this author. It felt rushed at times. It had its moments and I really loved the character of Bec but in the end it just felt unfinished.

Why do they have to make cover changes when a series isn't over yet. Now my books don't match 😫. My cover for book 1 matches the original planned cover for book 2. They changed it before release though and now the rest of the series will match changes made for book 2. I like when all my books in a series match. Grrr.

GypsyKat Ugh! I feel you! It‘s important to me too that all the books in a series match. 😕 3w

What a ride!! Packed with action, adventure, time travel, & paradoxes. I couldn't wait to see how this one would unfold. The world kept trying to kill Nick & he just looked it in the eye and said "not today." I am eager to see how the next book wraps things up.

My Book Outlet order came. So excited to finally be addling these to my collection. I adored John, Dave, & Amy's wacky adventures and Futuristic Violence is a new favorite. I haven't read NOS4A2 yet but owning a physical copy means I am that much closer. Now if only I could get my bookshelves built so I had somewhere to put them.

Pitched to me as Ready Player One meets Stranger Things so of course I had to check it out. I easily fell into this story of time travel, mystery, & all things 80s and was quite sad when I finished it. I will be picking up book 2 as soon as possible. I need to know if Nick changed his future.

JaclynW That's a good way to describe a book! I'm sold! Stacked! 1mo

Soaking up some much needed vitamin D!! As a person who normally loves when it rains I am getting sick of all this rain we have been getting. It is my summer break from job #1 (the reason for the cup) & I want to be able to be outside enjoying it. It can rain on nights where I work at job #2 because then at least I am stuck inside anyways.

Talk about another trip down memory lane. I remember really enjoying this when I 1st read it back in high school. I listened to the audio this time (read by Stephen Fry 👍) and while I still enjoyed it immensely I would have to say I definitely have a greater appreciation for & understanding of it now as an adult.

"Humans exceed themselves when they open their minds to discovery. When we immerse ourselves in the wonders of curiosity, rather than moving straight toward the goal we've chosen. Toward the goal we imagine is most important, because it's the one we can see. When we allow ourselves to explore, we discover destinations that were never on our map."

Interesting stuff 🤔🤔

Shley9225 This book sounds fascinating 1mo
jackilynn @Shley9225 it really was. It shows how fictional females went through & overcame struggles/obstacles (ex PTSD, trauma, depression, anxiety, isolation) in an effort to show that women today are not alone and we can overcome our struggles/obstacles too. It shows a different side (a side that often gets overlooked) of these much beloved characters. 1mo

Ah, reliving my childhood here! 😭 Much like The Chronicles of Narnia or A Series of Unfortunate Events this was a favorite of mine growing up. I have found I am not as big of a fan of Lyra as I was when I was younger but who knows my opinion my change as I continue my reread of this series.

Powered_By_Plants Just finishing this and the first time reading , I can‘t believe I wasn‘t introduced in my childhood! Looking forward to starting the next one . Have your thoughts changed now your reading again as an adult? x 2w
jackilynn @Powered_By_Plants so far the only change I have noticed is my opinion on Lyra. I have almost finished book 2 now & I am getting back to liking her again. As an adult now I realize the religious aspects to the story which is something I definitely didn't pick up on as a kid (much like my experience rereading the Chronicles of Narnia). Still very magical though. Happy reading. 2w
