I thought my #LMPBC #round4 group would appreciate this! @thebluestocking @Ingerella @Whimsical.Curiosity
I didn't catch this! Did any of you?
I still think about this book. It was probably the most imaginative (although very odd and disturbing) book that I have ever read. Which makes it a great choice for a book club! 😉

thebluestocking I didn‘t know or notice that! That‘s super cool. 1mo
Ingerella I didn't notice either! I love it! 1mo

@DarcysMom It's here! I started it at the beach, but it's incredibly hard to concentrate on anything but the kite surfers and dogs jumping in the surf. It seems like a great story though! #lmpbc #groupY @grumpygirlbooks @BridgetteM

@VanChocStrawberry Thanks for the extra goodies Jeni! What a nice surprise. I enjoyed this round with you, @Amanda61 and @BridgetteM (who is in my current #LMPBC Group 🤗). This was my first venture into what is now my Favorite Litsy Group! I tell all of my reader friends about this style of reading/annotating and how much it has added to my enjoyment and deeper understanding of books. As long as you don't mind marking up your books 😬😉

Just an FYI for our #whodunitbymail group (in case we can ever figure this out ?): I highlighted in green what I have received and two books somehow passed me. (Still Mine and Hidden Fire). Also I have not received my May book from @AndreaReads so I currently don't have a book. Maybe this is a "withdrawn book" month for me. Hope this helps somehow.

AndreaReads I have Still Mine ready to be sent to you! The one listed above it was the missing book! We‘re almost caught up on our end! 11mo
leslieseidel Oh great!! Thanks @AndreaReads 11mo

kspenmoll Still Mine & Hidden Fire I had ages ago but I think the person I mailed them to never passedthem on to @MrsV & @Tiffy_Reads could not get any response. Some books were replaced & may be out of order. Does anyone have them? 11mo
MrsV I was just thinking about this. I have had and passed on Still Mine, but not Hidden Fire if that helps at all. The last book I passed on was I‘ve Got You Under My Skin. 11mo
MrsV I spoke too soon. I just got The Devotion of Suspect X today! 11mo
Marmie7 So my book, Hidden Fire, was lost between @kspenmoll and @MrsV ? Maybe lost in the mail? Should I get another copy and send to @MrsV ? @Tiffy_Reads @Read4life 10mo
Read4life @Marmie7 I know in the past @Tiffy_Reads or someone she had assisting with our group organized getting another copy and where it needed to be sent. I‘ve seen on here that @Tiffy_Reads has been ill recently so maybe we should just try and figure it out as a group. I personally haven‘t received a book for May or July. This means I won‘t have anything to send to you in August. 10mo
Read4life Let‘s see if we can figure out where we‘re at by book. The last book I received was IQ. Does anyone have The Keepsake? How about Let Us Pray? I think I should have received both by now but haven‘t. 10mo

I saw a recommendation for this book, realized I had a copy, and read it immediately. It takes place on a fictional island in New England, which sounds like Nantucket to me. A family gathers to celebrate a wedding and the author does a great job of deep diving into all of the drama that unfolds. There is an abundance of interesting and flawed characters. But what I liked most was the rich dialogue, both inner and between the characters.

CSeydel My sister in law recommended this but I still haven‘t gotten around to it! 12mo
Soubhiville I liked her other- 12mo
leslieseidel @CSeydel it was written in 2012 and It wasn't on my radar until now. @Soubhiville I want to read that one next. 12mo

I would have enjoyed this book even if I wasn't at the beach! ⛱🌊 The writing was wonderfully descriptive. The main characters were well-developed with some to love and some to dislike. And the story was excellent with quite a few twists and turns. I was bummed to get to the end of this 500+ page novel. Now to deep dive into this author's backlist!

I just finished watching this documentary on the great Joan Didion. I have read several of her books and think she has such a way with words. This is such a beautifully done homage to Joan by her nephew Griffin Dunne. What I found the most memorable was the very intimate look at Joan‘s grief and grieving process after several very painful losses in recent years. You might want to have tissues handy. #bookrelated #netflix

Wow! I practically read this book in one sitting! The author covers a lot of morality issues, but in a good, not preachy way. The relationship that develops between the two main characters is full of self-revelation and introspection, in turn, allowing the reader the same. I like and appreciate books that allow you to think outside their storyline.

I started this book and it has so many similarities to my last book that I am getting plot-confused. I keep overlaying characters and scenes from both books in my head?!? Does this ever happen to anyone?
Maybe the coffee will help! 😉

Karkar What a great view! 2y
mcipher @Karkar My thoughts exactly! Beautiful. 2y
