Never read anything by Wilbur Smith. This is an ambitious one. Not sure what I'm getting into.

Vansa They're very easy read , fast paced thrillers. Quite fun ! 2y

Switched to something a little more fast paced. Sorry Ms. Wharton, Jane Austen is still the classical leading lady of my literary life.

This just in! So happy! Diving in! Need something to take me away from my Black Panther obsession.

CaliforniaCay I feel the same way! I have not been able to shake black panther. Im completely obsessed. I work at a bookstore and I'm in the process of setting up a display of books called "If you liked black panther you may also like..." I immidiately threw this book on the display because I knew fans of the world of wakanda would like this. But I have to read it myself so I can make even more personalized reccommendations. I'm loving it so far! 2y
misslala @CaliforniaCay yeah, Black Panther has done a number on me. Nothing else measures up. ❤❤ 2y

Ok, I'm sure my opinion of this book is blasphemous but I just couldn't get through it. The language was unnecessarily complicated and long winded. I found myself checking out and I wasn't looking forward to finding out what happens next. I love Oprah but she and I have very different tastes in literature.

Is anyone else participating in #theunreadshelfproject2018? I found the hashtag on Instagram. You count the number of unread books on your shelf, set a goal to read only the unread books you currently own. I didn't think this was for me until I counted 217 unread physical books on my shelves. Sheesh. 📚📚 Pumping the book buying breaks. 😡😡 #newyear #newgoals

readsusieread I want to do this but I work in a library and the temptation is TOO REAL! 2y
kelli7990 I‘m doing this. I wrote down all the unread books on my shelves and I found out that I have 164. I have two bookshelves. I have 1 bookshelf in my bedroom and one in another room. I‘m out of room for more books but I got 4 gift cards from Barnes & Noble for Christmas so I don‘t know what to buy or where I‘m going to put the new books but I think that it‘s okay for me to buy some new books because I got gift cards for Christmas. 11mo

Ummm, ok. I started reading this and I'm at the edge of my seat. I'm 189 pages in and I think I see the outcome/scenario. But the author does a great job keeping me in suspense. 📚😠

KateFulfordAuthor @misslala perhaps you could consider my debut? Reviews are saying: “I loved this book more than I initially thought I would. Fulford infuses her characters with intense personalities that are prone to clashing with those of others. I loved Eve from the very beginning..." It‘s been nominated for The People's Book Prize 2018 too!
