The Boy from the Woods | Harlan Coben

Mehso-so

I can‘t necessarily recommend this book, but because I‘m a sucker for a good back cover description, I‘ll probably read another Coben novel eventually.​

“In one of the most bizarre cases in recent history, a wild-haired young boy, estimated to be between six and eight years old, was discovered living on his own in the Ramapo Mountain State Forest near the suburb of Westville...and then the dragons arrived.”

My three-year-old loves his books ❤️. He likes to read with Mommy but also by himself. We read this together after naptime earlier.

Bossypants | Tina Fey

I did expect the book to be constant laughs, not just laughs sprinkled through the essay, but that‘s on me.

The Handmaid's Tale | Margaret Atwood
post image

1.) Serena Joy Waterford. I wouldn‘t say I like her at all, but the TV show expanded on her character so much that I began to empathize with her sometimes.

2.) Excessive sex (and thoughts of) and cursing. I‘m looking at you, Stephen King 👀.

3.) Any of my favorites. Michael Ende is dead, but I would love something signed by Amy Tan. Or Guillermo del Toro and Cornelia Funke. Or Murata Sayaka. Or...

A hard-to-put-down thriller with some very heartbreaking events. I‘m reading a funny book now (something I don‘t normally need to switch to after a thriller). If you read this, you might do the same or exercise some self-care when you finish reading this book.

I feel like I read part of this a long time ago. I kind of want to read the whole thing, but it‘s been awhile since I‘ve read Steinbeck, and I didn‘t like it then. It‘s probably time to try again.

Pic on the left is from #goodreads and was the original cover of the copy I bought for my Nook. Pic on the right is what it looks like now. Complete redesign, for some reason.

wanderinglynn I like the one on the left better. It‘s a cleaner, sleeker cover. 2y
OriginalCyn620 I‘ve never seen the one on the right! 2y
Sweetkokoro I actually love the new cover designs they catch my eye and make me want to read this series. The originals never caught my attention, I thought they were bland and boring, so I always overlooked the series. 2y

Playing out of order because I just discovered this game. Also, #whynot?

So far, Litsy reviewers haven‘t liked the tagged so much, it seems, but I‘m loving it so far! I hope I don‘t change my mind; I love psychological thrillers and mysteries.

Does watching book-ish things on the internet count as reading?

I watched the version with Cumberbatch as the monster and Miller as Frankenstein last week; I watched the reverse yesterday. I preferred Cumberbatch as the monster, but everyone was incredible in all their roles.

This book will be published in March. If you're a fan of Seluk, you'll more than likely enjoy it.

Have you read this? WHAT THE HECK HAPPENS TO ROWAN?!?!

Rowan Caine applies for a dream nannying job in Scotland, but is it too good to be true? Apparently, since the novel starts with her writing letters from a Scottish prison to a barrister. But is what happened cause by the supernatural or something closer to her new home?

So I love this book. I‘ve read this book to my son about a bazillion times, and he loves it. I‘ve noticed other mistakes in it before, but this misspelling is here and throughout the whole book and makes me want to throw it through a window.

I‘m letting my kid watch so much TV today 🤦🏻‍♀️. We were going to go to an indoor playground, but my kid managed to find his way to the cat poop to play with it, so I kind of lost my motivation. While cleaning up the library (where the cat‘s stuff is), I decided to pull out a fun read (even though I‘m already reading a billion books at once).

Bookzombie Oh that‘s a mess. So sorry that happened. 💗 2y

The Lovely Bones | Alice Sebold

1.) I love psychological thrillers. I also really like sci-fi. I was able to attend an advanced screening of a very bookish, very awesome mystery movie.

2.) _The Lovely Bones_. Also _The Time Traveler‘s Wife_. Also...

3.) Caroline B. Cooney, S. E. Hinton, Brian Jacques, Robert Pinsky

4.) Too cold (though I do acknowledge those that don‘t have shelter and can‘t cover up with an extra blanket)
