Pickpick

I didn't want this book to be over. I loved it so, so much. Eleanor is so quirky, yet so lovable. ❤️ I also enjoyed my reading partner, pictured here (sort of). ❤️

LOVED the first book SO, SO MUCH. And look at that lil comment from NK Jemisin! I mean... A) she says 'snarky', which is SO me AND B) she's NK Jemisin. 🤷

Into The Water | Paula Hawkins
Mehso-so

There were some things I really liked about this book. It was an easy read and had a lot of twists, which made it nice to get absorbed in. I liked the character of Nickie. Not sure how to put my finger on it, I just didn't like it as much as I wanted to. 🤷

Soubhiville I hope your next book is better! 13mo
meeshmom @Soubhiville it will be! They can't all be amazing. Loved the one right before this one! 13mo
Soubhiville I‘m glad! Have you read any VE Schwab? I don‘t know why but the Red Balloon description makes me think you might like 13mo
Soubhiville Not all that similar except magical realism. 13mo
meeshmom @Soubhiville I don't think I have! I'll add it to my list! 13mo

Sometimes you spend hours (?!?!) making a list of all your TBR books and then spend another 30" looking for ANY of them on OverDrive.

Well... Guess I'll just pick a random for my first read of 2019.
Hoping it's a good one!

WOW. Beautifully written. Love #novelsinverse and Melanie Crowder did such a wonderful job really getting into the story. It felt so real. I was hopeless and angry right along with Clara.

The atmosphere of the place soothed her automatically; the rich lantern lights, the sheer scent of paper and leather, and the fact that everywhere she looked, there were books, books, beautiful books.

A student insisted that I borrow his copy of Cassandra Clare's Lady Midnight. I really enjoyed her Mortal Instrument series.

"I have taken liberties. Fewer liberties than you might imagine, but liberties nonetheless."

Tmw you're pretty sure you've read the book, but buy it @ #hpb just in case.

Soubhiville The book is one wild ride! 2y
SpiderGoddess Such a great book. I haven't yet seen the television adaptation for fear they won't capture the beauty and humor therein.... 2y
meeshmom @SpiderGoddess yeah I wonder how it's going to go 2y
meeshmom @Soubhiville so, I HAVE read it... But in my brain of all the read books I don't remember how it ends, so I'm rereading. :) 2y

At a fav spot: Half Price Books! I need a new book! What to get... What to get..

SpiderGoddess What did you end up getting? 2y
meeshmom @SpiderGoddess-- a Neil Gaiman book: American Gods. Pretty sure I'd already read it, but it had been a while so, I figured 'why not? ' 2y
