I had last minute change of plans and can now participate in the @DeweysReadathon tomorrow! This is my quickly cobbled together #tbr because I love options? Since there‘s been no planning I‘m really only hoping to hit 16 hrs but excited anyway! #readathon

readordierachel Great choices! 3mo
Clwojick Thank you for posting this! I was hoping to do my own little Readathon this weekend, but now I‘ve signed up for Dewey‘s too! Looking forward to tackling some of my TBR stack before I head back to college in May. 🧡 3mo
Clwojick On another note, I loved Shade and Saga. 💛🧡❤️ 3mo
prowlix @Clwojick glad to help! I really love Dewey‘s and the 24 in 48 readathons. Also glad to know that you liked Shade since it was kinda an impulse pick at the library 📚 3mo

prowlix @ShyBookOwl I‘m loving the audio! It‘s so addictive because everything just keeps escalating. I didn‘t realize the company went on for so long either 3mo
ShyBookOwl @prowlix I didnt realize that either until my husband read the book. After reading the last page he looked like his mind had been blown and urged me to read it. He only gave me a few spoilers, but experiencing it myself is still so crazy. 3mo

This book continues to make me so sad and so angry at the same time. I just don‘t understand

The author is doing an amazing job with such a difficult subject, I‘m only able to read small bits before needing to read something else.

BookNerd9906 Smh 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I just heard the author on a podcast. Despite wanting to read this for a while, I haven‘t prioritized. Since the podcast, it‘s WAY up the list! 6mo
prowlix @BarbaraTheBibliophage I had moved it up after hearing it‘s in the works for a movie. The author does a great job giving you a lot of facts while still telling these stories so it doesn‘t feel like academic nonfiction 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @prowlix Great to know. I‘m not surprised, based on listening to him being interviewed. 6mo

I‘m taking this book in small doses but definitely feel like it‘s important. This chapter is devoted to prostitution rings and young women trafficked in Mexico.

Mehso-so

I struggle with what to think about this book. Sanford Clark never gave interviews, didn‘t write about his experience and only spoke of it once to one of his sons. Yet this is told from his perspective with lots of details. The above is the only reference page. I don‘t doubt that these were horrific crimes but it feels like lots of artistic license. It felt opportunistic to me. This one also has all the TW. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is scary how prophetic this book is and I‘m only a few pages in. A presidential candidate that wants a throw back to “simpler times,” condemns violence he stirs up with mild language open to interpretation, and an actual quote “Help us make America great again”. ⁉️🤯

This is on great audio with short chapters that alternate through the many characters. This isn‘t a deep character study but it‘s just fun to read. You have a wide variety of characters with just small pieces of their stories. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Starting new book tonight! It‘s been on my tbr for awhile and I finally picked it up from the library. Somehow it was marked a mystery in the library but it‘s pretty clear how/who commits the murder in first 50 pages?

In other news: Watson has decided to remove all the warm covers from my bed but then sleep squished next to me in the 90 degree heat. #puppylove #dogsoflitsy

I was expecting this to be just a fun and breezy YA but it was a lot more than that. It deals with found family, quick friendships, addiction, misconceptions and biases. I loved the descriptions of rural Virginia, you can feel the heat humidity and the author‘s love for the area. This is a great debut and I can‘t wait to see what she writes next! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Overall I did really like this bc I‘m really enjoying the idea of world where natural death has been conquered and we have to glean population. And I really like a benevolent omnipotent AI. That said, I feel like this just abruptly ends. Like a lot of second books in a trilogy, it moves the plot and adds to world building but there‘s no closure. It left me impatiently waiting for the third book! 3.5🖤
