#staycationintime Look at this wonderful collection of Icelandic goodies. I‘m in love! @Chrissyreadit thank you so much. The books are perfect. I currently have the lava bracelet on and am making this tea in my new aurora mug! I‘ve been to Iceland twice and have been to all the bookmark spots. What a great gift of memories. Thanks again for this killer box. Can‘t wait to start reading about the hidden folk.

DinoMom I choose Iceland as well for my travel and got one of the same books. I am looking to reading it. This is a lovely package! 9mo

Last weekend we stopped into this new to us comic book store in Lawrenceville, NJ-Final Boss. The guys who run the shop are fantastic and full of recommendations. Had a blast talking all things horror comics. Picked up these three beauties.

Jess @TieDyeDude thanks for the heads up. I was going to start there this weekend. That is what happened when I read this one. I HAD to have the second right away. 9mo

Trees | Percival Everett

Wow. This was stellar. Has anyone read any of Everett‘s other works? I need more but am not sure where to start. Would love a recommendation.

SamAnne I‘m still recovering from this read! Finished it a couple days ago. Erasure and Telephone have been recommended to me. I want to read more of him! 1y
Jess @SamAnne I know. This one will be with me for some time. Thanks for passing on these two. 1y
CSeydel Erasure may be my favorite of his. I liked Assumption too, but a lot of people hated it, so I‘d hold off until you really get a feel for Everett‘s somewhat perverse sense of storytelling. 11mo
Jess @CSeydel thanks for the recommendations! I will check both out. 11mo

I am so sad today. #literati announced that the book subscription service is ending. It really is my favorite subscription service-giving you tons of seriously thought provoking selections each month to choose from. The app was fantastic and included a page tracker for your current read. Oh well. I guess all good things come to and end 😭 The tagged book appears to be my last selection.

That was the fastest skip ever. What the heck #botm! I just can‘t take all of the romance, thrillers and suburban mom stories. Maybe BOTM isn‘t for me anymore? I miss the really good literary fiction choices of years past. Oh well. Will try again in October.

I have to thank #thatsclassic for getting me to pull out this gorgeous Folio edition for June‘s book pick. Fantastic gothic setting and many memorable (deplorable) characters. Loved it.

JenlovesJT47 So pretty!! Have you seen the 1940 movie? It‘s amazing. The remake is decent but absolutely no comparison. ❤️ 3y
Jess @JenlovesJT47 now that I read the book, I plan on watching both but will be sure to start with the 1940 version first. Thanks! 3y

The Philadelphia Free Library is hosting Emily tomorrow night. I just signed up for the free event. Anyone else interested? I haven‘t been able to get my hands on the new book so I‘ll be plugging my ears in places to avoid spoilers!

MicheleinPhilly I‘ve signed up! I‘ve attended events in the past when I‘ve not read the book and the author is usually great about avoiding spoilers. And I‘m hoping because of the format, they can filter out any questions that would provide spoilers. Hope you are well! 4y
