Good morning, Littens! I'm alive in case anyone was worried. 😘

I have been knitting a lot and only reading tiny bit of Anna Karenina everyday. I hope you are all well. Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of Litsy things soon.

P.s. @JenlovesJT47 I haven't forgotten you! I'm so sorry for your wait. I hope you and Jace are well! 😍

Rachellynnwright Oh no! Are you sick! Hope everything‘s ok over there!! 1y

I finished my first #Freakyfriday pick! Thank you for recommending it @prettybooknerd ! Yoon always gets me with the last third of the book. The first two thirds feel stereotypical (not bad), but then it becomes something else that is beautiful and surprising.

thereadingunicorn So glad you like it 😊❤️ now you have to see the movie ! 2y
AmyG I read this book in a day. I had no clue... but really enjoyed it. Quite the ending. 2y

Despite how long it took me to read, Kindred pulled me in from the first few pages. I thought of this book in nearly every space between readings.

@Tamra I finished it!

Reecaspieces Awe!!! 2y
Tamra What did you think of the end? It felt a little abrupt to me, but I‘m not sure what else she could do with the story. She did a good job of making me dislike father & son and showing how they are products of their time and she isn‘t going to be able to change them. I wonder if this has been made into a movie? Seems well suited for it! (edited) 2y
cariashley Did you find it to be a slow read? 2y
See All 13 Comments
readsusieread @cariashley not at all! I had just not been prioritizing reading! 2y
readsusieread @Tamra I could definitely get on board with it being abrupt. I was surprised that she even went back at all after Hagar was born. I guess to give us closure on Rufus. She only ever went back to save Rufus, may be in some poetic way her killing him was her final way of saving him. Because he was just going to end up like his father? 2y
cariashley @readsusieread ah ok good to know! I own it but haven‘t picked it up yet. 2y
readsusieread This would be such a great and heartbreaking movie. I'm not sure it has been one tho! 2y
readsusieread @cariashley definitely worth a reas. It is tough but such a good story. 2y
Tamra @readsusieread my interpretation is that she had to keep him alive to create Hagar bc Hagar is her ancestor. Was interesting she wasn‘t sure if she could get back home once he was dead, like he was necessary to the time travel back. 😧 It would have been an interesting follow-up Book if Kevin had been stuck & she had to find him. I thought there was going to be more to that part. 2y
readsusieread My interpretation was the same but Hagar was already born before the last chapter. That's why I was surprised that she went back a final time. 2y
readsusieread I thought there would have been more with her looking for Kevin too! 2y
mcipher I just finished it, too, and wow. I felt the same way about the ending - it happened so fast and it seemed odd that she went back that last time, but I guess the book needed that closure so it was more a plot device than a real fit to the story. Either way, what a powerful and heartbreaking book. 2y
readsusieread @mcipher totally agree! And Kindred will definitely stay with me a while! 2y

MarriedtoMrT Same on number 1! 2y
readsusieread @MarriedtoMrT my parents watched the Olympics regularly but my husband and in laws don't so I always forget about them! 2y
MarriedtoMrT @readsusieread I‘m not sure if they still do but my parents also always had it on when I was growing up and I remember it was a big deal when they would let us stay up late to watch the figure skating. Husband and I have just not invested the same amount of interest in it. 2y
readsusieread @MarriedtoMrT yup. That's us too. 2y

My reading has slowed down so much! I'm almost finished with this book. I'm loving it but only squeezing in a few minutes of reading each day is not cutting it!

@Tamra as SOON as I finish this I'm starting Kindred I swear!

Tamra @readsusieread no hurry! @Cathythoughts might join us too. 😊 2y

Librariana I'm curious about your notes on the side, @readsusieread 😄😊💜 2y
Cathythoughts @Tamra @readsusieread def no hurry , I havnt got the book yet & must finish Summer Queen first 😬 2y
readsusieread @Librariana it was from a short and sweet EBSCO webinar yesterday! Want me to send you a better photo on Instagram? 2y
readsusieread @Cathythoughts @Tamra I finished Snow Falling last night. I'm going to start Kindred but at the rate I've been reading it won't take much to catch up! No worries. 2y
Cathythoughts @readsusieread @Tamra That‘s great you are starting Kindred. I‘ll join in along the way if I can. Enjoy 😉😊 2y
readsusieread @Cathythoughts thank you! Let us know when/if you join! @Tamra will you start back up again or wait a bit? 2y
Tamra @readsusieread I am smack in the middle of another, but it doesn‘t take me long. You go ahead & start Kindred since I read the first couple of chapters. 😊 It‘s quite intriguing! 2y
Tamra @Cathythoughts 👌🏾 Let me know when you start Luminaries too. 🙂 2y
readsusieread @Tamra thank you! I know! I read the first couple chapters and I'm hooked! 2y
Tamra @readsusieread read at your own pace and enjoy! 2y
Cathythoughts @Tamra I will. I‘ll let you know , I think it will be good ( and long 😬) 2y
