The library at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. You can still read here even though it is also an exhibit. Signs explicitly say, “Silence here”
❤️🥰

BethM An exhibit? 3w
keys_on_fire @BethM Yes, if you access it from the upper floor, it‘s roped off for viewing as you may be able to see from the glass in the forefront of the picture. It‘s part of their art/history museum 3w
BethM Can you check out books? 3w

Anastasia Krupnik | Lois Lowry

Very quick chapter book for middle grade. I enjoyed Anastasia‘s voice and felt she was very real. She interacted with her family in such a way that they took her seriously, which doesn‘t often happen in books. I may have to read another in the series, even though I was just checking this off my #PaperbackCrush list!

Halfway between Pick and So-So, and landed on Pick primarily because the societal trends that this book addresses really resonate right now, despite the fact that this book was written in the 40‘s. I think it‘s important for anyone to read this book, but over all it left me feeling deflated. This book evokes a such a weird conglomeration of emotions...

#MSPLBookClub pick for May 2019
I sped through this book about the history of the Los Angeles Central library, which had a devastating fire in the mid-80‘s. My favorite parts were learning about the science behind fires of that magnitude and how the librarians through the years rallied to keep the library relevant. My least favorite part was the attempt to follow the investigation of arson. It just didn‘t seem to fit.

Read this because it was mentioned in #PaperbackCrush. The girls in this book make Jessica Wakefield look like a saint! 😂😂 While it was interesting to ‘get away‘ to a different style of living, I don‘t think I‘ll be reading any more of the series. Maybe I‘ll catch and episode of the show on Netflix next...

Picked up this book as one mentioned in #PaperbackCrush. Totally different genre and style from the halls of Sweet Valley High! While this book did have a plot, it felt more like a big setup for the rest of the series. Not sure if I‘m going to continue reading the rest or not. Reading this on Kindle, there were quite a few punctuation mistakes.

Starting this one tonight after reading #PaperbackCrush. I think it would be really neat to try and read at least one book from each series mentioned in that book.

I never was allowed to read these as a kid. I‘m on the list at the library to borrow Paperback Crush, which is about all the YA serial books of the 80‘s and 90‘s. I‘m definitely familiar with Sweet Valley High/Twins and The Babysitters Club but thought it might help to have read at least one of the Fear Street novels.
Did you read these as a kid?? Or maybe not so much a kid? 😉

I read through this series pretty quickly, but I had to review this one because I felt it was different than the others. This one was presented like someone had stolen the case file and put it in the hands of the enemy to try and win them over to the good side. I really liked the approach, especially with this being the 5th book in the series.

Saw another Litten post about these books and had to check them out. I‘m not a Star Wars super fan, but I definitely have some nostalgia that creeps up on me sometimes!

These are cute middle grade books that are similar in style to the Wimpy Kid books. Very quick read for an adult; the plot involves some learning about what makes someone seem cool or not in sixth grade.

I can see why people got sucked in to seeing what was going to happen next as the author released more chapters on Wattpad, but as a 600 page book it just goes on way too long. I got about halfway through and had to stop because of repetition and starting to get aggravated by the main characters.

This book was engaging and cringeworthy all at the same time! And I loved it!! Don stumbles through situations that most wouldn‘t blink an eye at, making you want to cover your eyes as you read. Yet, he‘s so endearing that you just want him so badly to succeed! Fast read for me, and I will probably read again!

Sometimes you read the right book at the right time, and this was one for me. Eleanor can be a prickly narrator, but by the end she had become very endeared to me. I recognized many things I‘ve done in my own life that Eleanor had to learn, and I learned SO MANY new vocabulary words!! ❤️❤️

There were quite a few descriptive moments about things Eleanor was experiencing that made me laugh out loud, and I love when a book can make me do that!

I am really enjoying this series! Yes, this is a series and should be read in order, BUT each book can be read alone. I actually read the 3rd book first and realized that it was referencing things from the first two.

Its an interesting concept to try and tell the villains story while working within the confines of what has already been told about the heroines. These are not literary masterpieces, but are comfort food with a twist! Enjoy!

The Great Gatsby | Francis Scott Fitzgerald

This was ok. I listened to it on audible, so maybe I would have liked it better if I had read it. I just didn‘t connect with why the narrator thought so highly of Gatsby. It definitely paints a specific picture of 1920‘s life/mentality. Not sure if I‘ll read it again or not.

I finished it. I can cross it off my reading bucket list poster. Other than that, not much I would recommend.

For some, this might be a very funny book. To me, it was just a random thought process that went nowhere through the vast unknown reaches of space and back again. Escapism? Fantasy? Who knows?
Which might just be the point...

I‘m on page 28. Should I keep going?
The style is currently throwing me for a loop. I don‘t like reading books where the establishment of a world is just a bunch of names and facts thrown at you all at once. Same issue with Brandon Sanderson books; just can‘t get into them.

I hate to give up because it‘s a fairly short novel, but I haven‘t found anything that‘s drawing me in yet...

ravenlee I would skip ahead into another section or two and see if there‘s anything there that makes you want to continue. Otherwise, try it another time. 4mo

SleepyDragon If you aren't already laughing your head off, it's probably not your kind of humor. If you still want to give Douglas Adams a chance, try Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, or it's sequel Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul. I know people who liked that better than Hitchhikers. 4mo

Thanks for the encouragement! 4mo

I‘m only 20 pages in, and have lost count of how many I‘ve come across so far. This is apparently one of my literary pet peeves. Maybe I‘m just old fashioned. Does this technique bother you?

GingerAntics In dialogue I don‘t mind, because people don‘t talk in perfect English with perfect grammar. I actually don‘t like when characters are made to do so. Outside of that, no. Just no. 4mo
Texreader Ditto what @GingerAntics said. Same. 4mo
SleepyDragon Lol. It's something I not only don't mind, but a literary device I am fond of using myself. Sparingly, for impact. 😁 4mo
keys_on_fire @GingerAntics I agree with what you said. And @NeesyBeth yes, sparingly for impact would be so much better. Kind of how I feel about swearing too lol 4mo
GingerAntics @keys_on_fire I had a writing teacher who said that in fiction, one swear word has the impact of three in real life, so use them if it‘s right for your character in that situation but it‘s so easy to over use them. I definitely agree with that assessment. 4mo

This woman had fascinated people for decades, probably even generations now. This book does read somewhat like a magazine article, in that there is a lot of sensational items that it addresses. Then again, Wallis Simpson was a pretty sensational topic! I also listened to the audio version for the second half of the book, and enjoyed it this way even more. Escapism about an actual historical figure is pretty cool!

keys_on_fire I read That Woman because it was mentioned as source material for a fictional book that was amazing: 4mo

This was a very intriguing read. I read it for library book club, but decided not to attend the meeting because I didn‘t want to sit and rehash this book. While I completely enjoyed Michelle‘s tale of both the EAR‘s journey and how her own journey to find him played out, it just seemed morbid to sit and hash it out. I‘ve read some reviews that felt it was hard to follow the timeline, but I didn‘t feel that.

This was my first Ken Follett and I honestly did not know what to expect. Such a great story, interweaving five families and how they all were involved with WWI.

This was a GoodReads giveaway that I won. Unfortunately, I gave up at 9% because the story could not compete with the lack of editing. It was like the book was dictated and transferred into text, as there was little punctuation and lots of lengthy sentences. It was hard to follow as thoughts would shift mid-sentence. Done right, with some help, this could have been a neat inside perspective tale. I just couldn‘t make it through...

keys_on_fire I left this same review on GoodReads and the author thanked me for my comment. I feel like I was respectful in my writing of my review, but it just makes me feel so bad to leave a review that is not positive. Anyone else have this issue? Ugh 😑 6mo

I don‘t cry at books, only movies. I teared up at the 2nd to last chapter & sobbed at the last one. It‘s possible that this was triggered by the fact that I had Chopin‘s Nocturne in E flat Major (which is mentioned in the last chapter) playing at the same time, as I am a 🎶 lover. This book was an emotional read that I truly enjoyed. I highly recommend it, & having your streaming music service ready to listen to the music mentioned as you read.

This was a fun one. I love Titanic stories, and it‘s so interesting the parallels between this book and James Cameron‘s movie, especially that this was written years before the movie came out. A little bit harder to believe in the love story than most, but what can you expect in a story that has such a definite timeframe? Over all, a great little escape! #MtTBR
