My sister makes and sells these prints inspired by The Handmaid‘s Tale. So excited to hang this up in my cubicle :) https://www.etsy.com/shop/briobr

tojuxtapose I really love this. 2y
kaitlyn @KCCOkatey such a great quote from the show. I added the Etsy link in the description in case anyone was looking for it :) 2y
tojuxtapose @kaitlyn I saw that and I had to go get myself one. 😂 2y

Catching Fire | Suzanne Collins

When you go on vacation to the U.K. and come back with too many books because their cover art is just too good.

LauraBrook 9 isn't too bad! Whenever I eventually get to the U.K., I plan on shipping boxes back, filling an empty suitcase, or both! 2y
kaitlyn @LauraBrook I was regretting not bringing an extra suitcase to hold them all! & I definitely support this :) 2y
Craftylikefox I love seeing the different covers and I am usually jealous of the UK covers. 2y

tpixie I agree- the UK 🇬🇧 covers are better than USA 🇺🇸 covers!! Why don‘t they realize we what the same cover??Even the first Harry Potter book I like the name so much better ‘philosopher stone‘ is so much more accurate. 2y
Peaslady I never got along with White Teeth even though it‘s the book that made Zadie Smith a household name. The ones I have loved by her were On Beauty and Swing Time, which if you liked Americanah I think you‘d love. 2y
KateFulfordAuthor May I tempt you with another?! Can I recommend my debut novel to you - a sassy female narrative, laugh out loud page after page, well drawn characters and a precision plot. See my bio for links to a summary, reviews and more. And a lovely cover! With thanks, Kate. 2y

1984 | George Orwell

To hang on from day to day and from week to week, spinning out a present that had no future, seemed an unconquerable instinct, just as one's lungs will always draw the next breath so long as there is air available.

Chris Riddell's illustrations warm my heart

8leagueboot He has been my favorite illustrator since he worked on The Edge Chronicles! 3y
TheWordJar I just picked this up the other day. I didn't realize the illustrations were such a big part of the book before I flipped through it. Can't wait to enjoy the story and the illustrations! 3y
rwrkb Love this book. And Chris Riddell is the best. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I listened to the audiobook of this which was fantastic... Now I need to look for and check out a printed version and check out the illustrations! 3y

"It shows that what we're actually made of is stories." Drove to Princeton to hear Markus Zusak speak. A wonderful experience - he was humble, kind, funny and insightful. And I got my book signed!

overlyattachedreader That must have been such an awesome experience! I remember having the worst time reading the last part of The Book Thief, because I couldn't stop crying! 4y
kaitlyn I couldn't stop crying either - and neither could Zusak when he wrote it! He said he bawled his eyes out working on part ten - it hurt to write but he loved writing it. @taryn 4y

The Virgin Suicides | Jeffrey Eugenides

Drunk, and kissing us, or passing out in chairs, they were bound for college, husbands, child-rearing, unhappiness only dimly perceived - bound, in other words, for life.

kaitlyn When a quote hits you right in the gut. Highly recommended - Eugenides' prose is beautiful and haunting. 4y
SGJ This and American Psycho were the books of the nineties, for me. Maybe Lord of the Barnyard too. Okay, maybe The Things They Carried, too. The nineties were a good time to be reading. Got a list here, if linking works: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/20-best-books-of-the-90s_b_5110765.htm 4y
kaitlyn Awesome list! Definitely need to add American psycho and a few others to my to read list :) 4y

Proud to be a #Puff. Absolutely fantastic, hysterical & surprisingly heartfelt. You need to go see Puffs at the PIT if you're in NYC. #getsorted #thirdornothing

bookstacksonstacks Omg I'm in NYC, what is this?! 4y
kaitlyn @bookstacksonstacks so sorry for the delayed reply - I just saw this! Puffs is a show at the Pitt that retells the trio's 7 years at hogwarts through the Hufflepuffs' perspective. It's amazing/laugh out loud funny. I'd definitely recommend going to see it if you're a HP fan⚡️ 4y

Listening to my first audiobook ever thanks to Book Riot's #readharder challenge

kaitlyn @jefflebl I got it through my local library using an app called Overdrive. Had to wait a little over two weeks (baffling since it's not a physical book) but it was free! 4y
jeff Awesome. I am all about having a book handy for all occasions. Time to get some audio books in the mix. Thanks for the rec! 😀📚 4y
kaitlyn Np! (bonus it's read by Neil Gaiman, who does a great job with all different voices/accents. It won an Audie.) 4y

Connie I loved this book! I remember someone reviewing it as the gothic version of The Jungle Book (which I agree) 😋 4y
Chie Definitely a must-read for tweens and most of everyone else! @Connie , read the same write-up somewhere and used it for a short analysis session in class. Introduced a few kids to Neil Gaiman, too. 😊 4y

2015 was the first year I tracked my reading. Looking for recommendations for 2016! #seasonsreadings

todd Does one book rise to the top of your 2015 stack? 4y
kaitlyn Hm... I thought the Book Thief was lovely, & Confederacy of Dunces was pleasantly frustrating. Also I just finished Devil in the White City, and it's convinced me I need to read more nonfiction. I only bailed on Infinite Jest I think (one day!) 4y
Connie How did you like carry on? I bailed on rainbow rowell's landline but maybe I should give her another chance? 🤔 4y

Tav From 2014: NATCHEZ BURNING by Greg Iles. One of my faves of the last few years (and the 1st in a trilogy so if you like it, there's more!). 4y
kaitlyn Thanks for the recommendation! Just added it to my TBR list @Tav 4y

Did you guys know there is a hashtag called #potteritforward, where readers leave notes to future readers in library books? Love.
