The City We Became | N.K. Jemisin

Book club meets 1 week from Tuesday so I should probably actually start the book. This week is going to be packed with wedding stuff (my best friend is getting married & I am in the wedding) so it could be interesting to see if I actually finish it on time 🤔🤦‍♀️

Reading over my lunch break. Can't really decide how I feel about this one yet. I am hesitant to DNF though because I am one of those people who NEEDS to read the book before watching the tv show/movie. 🤔

I have put it off FAR to long but the time has finally come to see how it ends.

The Bone Shard Daughter | Andrea Stewart

Pickpick

I have been meaning to pick this book up for awhile now so when it won the February poll for my fantasy book club I was beyond excited. I couldn't put this book down & I so badly want to start book 2 but I don't want that to influence the discussion when book club meets next week. Also, I think I have a new favorite character. If anything happens to Mephi I will riot!! 😜

Mr. Mercedes: A Novel | Stephen King

Banished to the basement to cover new library books again this time I made sure to bring my headphones. I am thinking Stephen King isn't something I want to blare through my phone with the Children's section right outside to office 🤔😬

Mr. Mercedes: A Novel | Stephen King
post image

With the announcement that there will be more Holly later this year I figured now was the perfect time to finally pick this series up. Plus, I can't read 2 fantasy books at the same time or I start to get them confused. Since I book club book is strictly fantasy I needed something slightly different to go with it.

Reagan I love these books and the tv series is so good! 1mo
jackilynn @Reagan I have seen the series so I have a rough idea as to what is going to happen. The books are usually better though so I had to give it a try. Also, I really want to read Holly right when it releases so I figured I better pick this up sooner rather than later. 1mo
jackilynn I am apparently reading all "Holly" appearances in reverse because I read If It Bleeds & the Outsider already...ooops lol 1mo

January wrap up. I read some chunksters so I am pretty impressed that I read that many books. The 3 that are circled are on here even though I haven't finished them yet because I read 40-70% of them (depending on the book) in January as well so it counts right.

Favorites: Happy Place, ACOMAF, Furysong
Least favorite: My Friend Anna, Persephone

Attempting to read my book only to discover it is completely missing a page. It wasn't ripped out, it apparently wasn't there at all. I would see if I could exchange it but since I got this book when it 1st came out (and it has been sitting on my shelf since) I don't think that is even possible 😩

mcipher Sometimes you can find the missing page in google books(I have had this happen to me and it SSUUUCCKS!) 3mo
LiteraryinLawrence Oh noooo!! 3mo
jackilynn @mcipher I found a digital copy on the Scribd app so I guess I will read it there. It just sucks because I am really enjoying the book so I could see keeping this in my permanent collection. Now I don't know if I want to anymore. 3mo
wordslinger42 How maddening! This happened to me once with a new edition of Pride and Prejudice, except there were 70+ pages missing 😭 3mo
jackilynn @wordslinger42 70+ pages...wow! Guess I got lucky with only the 2 pages. 3mo

My 1st 2023 TBR. Of course this doesn't include any ebooks or audiobooks I also plan on reading but it is my goal this year to really knock out more of physical books on my TBR shelf. Everytime I take a book from this pile I will be adding a new one from my TBR bookshelf to take its place. Fingers crossed I can finally start to clear some space because that shelf is currently overflowing 🤞😬📚

Well that was a fun little email Amazon. It's not anywhere close to the amount of audiobooks I have actually listened to so far this year (just the ones I actually paid for vs library app) but it is obvious what I mostly use it for (*cough* true crime book club *cough).

We have really been struggling trying to get Teens interested in our library lately so we have decided to take a new approach. We have created a library tiktok. I am slowly learning how to create/navigate it. It definitely takes some patience. Now, I should probably start the book club book in hopes that someone might actually show up.

Did I need more copies of the Hobbit or LOTR...no!!

Did I buy more at the book sale anyways...yes!! They are my favorite books (especially the Hobbit) after all.

Kind of bummed that the matching edition of The Fellowship was missing it's cover so I didn't end up with a full set but that's a used book sale for you.

Leftcoastzen Cool ! I think it‘s great when people collect different copies of their favorite book. 6mo
