Somehow I always forget how Saga can make me unexpectedly cry.
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
Really excited to read this after all the hype and since I work in healthcare. The prologue already has me hooked!
We didn‘t get nearly as much snow as they had called for but it is icy and freezing out! I made a big pot of potato soup and plan on books, snuggles and layers! Impromptu readathon anyone?
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.
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.
Which Sci-fi hero are you? I got Binti and my first reaction is I‘m not worthy!
Evening reading! 📖🍷This has been on my tbr for awhile but with all the talk of the caravan I moved it to my next read. May come in handy for those upcoming family gatherings too
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. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Today is the first day of Fall! It‘s easily my favorite time of year with cooler weather, Halloween, and leaves changing. 🍁This year I‘m going to try to read a short story (at least one) every day to get down my tbr. #Fallintoshortstories
Also that lump on the left is my dog snuggling under the blanket 😁
The words are flaccid, and the things I used to find sacred are torment. I‘m stepping into my own undertow. My own valley is closing in on me.
Pg 17 and already a raw read. #FirstNation
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 book reads so much like a historical murder mystery I have to continually remind myself it‘s nonfiction! It‘s so crazy and so much detailed research.💀🔪🖤
Morning read with some snuggles. I started this early this week on my lunch break bc I thought it was a novella. It definitely isn‘t but I‘m loving it anyway! Where else can you get robots + demigods + queer teen + cross dressing politician? 👌🤖
The sun is out in between rain mists! I‘m about 6 hours of reading completed but I haven‘t finished a book yet. Round two ☕️ 🍫📖! And Watson gets to play outside. #24in48
Someone made himself comfortable while I finished getting ready for bed. Now to pick the next read and get some puppy snuggles! #DogsofLitsy
This weekend is supposed to be 90+ and humid again so I‘m taking advantage of the 86 degree temp now. I‘m pretty sure this weekend will be spent hiding in the AC. 🔥🔥🔥
Right after this was taken, Watson saw a squirrel and had to chase and howl. #DogsofLitsy #houndlife
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 really 💗 audiobooks! Now if only my dog wasn‘t such an aggressive walker....
White privilege works by making the advantages white people have invisible while making the supposedly “poor” choices of people of color hypervisible. 🔥🔥🔥
Passing on some interesting news! Amazon has 9 free ebooks in translation you can get thru 4/23. They all look really interesting but I haven‘t heard of any of them?
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🖤
