Strange Planet | Nathan W. Pyle

Ever needed a reminder that we're just weird little aliens floating through space? Nathan W. Pyle's comics are delightful and the highlight of my mornings. The book has so many extras and a cute twist at the end that will leave you imagining pleasant nonsense 👽💙

Pride and Prejudice | Jane Austen

I can't believe I've waited so long to "read" Pride and Prejudice! I just finished listening to it through Chirp and it was amazing. It's witty and engaging and had me swooning by the end. Definitely a must read! ❤

sprainedbrain Yay! 🙌🏻 I was almost 40 before I read any Austen, and this was my first and still my favorite. ❤️ Now to find out which adaptation you like the best. 😂 2mo

Thank you so much @Butterflyamore ! I loved every bit of this surprise! I can't wait to dive into this book with a nice cup of tea and cookies 😊🍵📖
Thank you for hosting @TheReadingMermaid , it was so much fun! And just in time for my spring break!

TheReadingMermaid Love the hat. Love the book. Love the cookies. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 9mo
Butterflyamore I think that I may have gotten the same hat from my person as I bought for you! 😂 I didn‘t realize you were in school but now I am glad that I got you the multipack of cookie packets! That seems like it will come in handy as a quick snack between classes! 9mo
Butterflyamore Oh wait! Are you a teacher? Well, either way, they would probably great to grab and go to munch on when you get a chance. (edited) 9mo
quixoticjess @Butterflyamore lol yeah, I'm the teacher, but the kids are already as tall as me. The cookies are definitely a great snack at recess time 😊 thanks for being so sweet! 9mo

Macarons at Midnight | Suzanne Nelson
post image
Pickpick

Is it weird to be totally into a middle school romance? My girls have been swooning over it, so I wanted to give it a go. I sped through it in a couple hours & it is so cute. Basically, two kids meet at a midnight macaron taste test & fall in love without knowing who the other person really is. Deals with being the new kid, blended families, & love triangles. Of course, it wraps up a little too neatly, but it is for 8th graders...

Inkheart Trilogy | Cornelia Funke

Our school library only has Inkdeath, so you can imagine my alarm when one of my students was going to read it without reading Inkheart and Inkspell first 😲 I brought my own copies from home for her and we now have a waiting list going! Can't wait for this new generation of book lovers to fall in love with Cornelia Funke's Inkworld 😊

Reading Adam Ellis' comics in print rather than through a phone screen was a refreshing experience. If you know Adam through his social media you know his comics range from introspective topics like self-esteem to his obsession with coconut oil and crystals. His stuff may not be for everybody, but as a fellow Gudetama fan I find him weirdly relatable.

Attachments: A Novel | Rainbow Rowell
post image
Pickpick

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell is a classic 90's delight. Now, I'm a 1991 baby, so my memory of the time period is vague... but I really feel that Rowell does a great job transporting you to a time of denim jackets and Zima. Beth and Jennifer are hilariously witty in their email banter and Lincoln is an adorable gentle giant of a male lead. This is a must read if you're in the mood for a fluffy office romance with a Y2K backdrop.

Cinfhen Great review!! I was raising babies in the 90s 😂😂but I‘m still curious to read this one!! 11mo
quixoticjess @Cinfhen Thanks! Lol it's a fun read! 11mo

La casa en Mango Street | Sandra Cisneros
post image
Pickpick

While not exactly a "Christmas" book, reading Sandra Cisneros' Spanish version of The House on Mango Street during the Christmas season felt like coming home. Esperanza's childhood recollections blended well with my own memories and experiences, making it very relatable. Reading it in Spanish only enhanced the experience. Although, for the best results I recommend reading it with a cup of chocolate Abuelita or champurrado ☕

Fangirl (Special) | Rainbow Rowell

Greetings!
I basically devoured this book! It's my first Rainbow Rowell book and I was so impressed by her witty and engaging characters. I was a little unsure after the first chapter, but by the next I was absolutely hooked. I loved tagging along for Cather Avery's first year of college, watching her grow and find herself was both a hilarious and touching journey.
P.S. The collector's edition has fanart of the book inside! 😄

sprainedbrain Love that book! Welcome to Litsy😃 11mo
