I was taught Intelligent Design and Creationism in school, so it was fascinating to read about the parts of the human anatomy that are badly designed when you really look at them. She also got into the politics of Intelligent Design which did get a bit repetitive. Not for everyone, but I enjoy learning the science behind things. Books have helped me think for myself. 😊

First person, raw, stream of consciousness narrative about a man grieving so many losses in a post-pandemic world, painfully lonely and trying to hold onto his humanity. The kind of book that made me feel so much, almost that I temporarily lived another life. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Spoiler in the comments below if you want to know if the dog dies. #pandemic

A pandemic book with time travel! Set in future England, a university sends a historian back in time to research and accidentally sends her into the Black Death. However, the future has difficulty rescuing her due to their own outbreak. The past storyline was tragic and heartbreaking. My issue with the future story - communication problems were a huge plot device. They invented time travel, but not voicemail or texting or email? #pandemic

I read this because my teen daughter loved it and wanted me to. It did what I most wanted it to which was that we had a couple good conversations about stuff that can otherwise be awkward to talk about. Books are great for me to understand my teens better. The book was very cute, but it needed more conflict at points. However I am definitely not the target audience. 😊

Hi, I'd like to get back into Litsy and regular reading again! When covid happened, I got into a reading slump, and I wasn't on here much and didn't read as much. How or did the pandemic effect your reading? Did Litsy change at all? After my initial reading slump last year, all I wanted to read were books about pandemics. Anyone else? 😄😄😄

Prairiegirl_reading I‘m not there with reading about pandemics! Light and fluffy for me mostly. I definitely had a slump at first and am currently in the midst of a bad one. Not sure why now but here we are. Hope you are well and find some great reading!! 😄 9mo
tealwish @Prairiegirl_reading Ha, I know. The pandemic book thing is weird. 😆 Hope your slump improves! Anytime life feels too overwhelming, I get slumped too. 9mo
marleed Welcome back! For me, books and Littens have been a godsend in this pandemic. I‘ve greatly limited my travel and limited my indoor public shopping to masked and only for what I need. I have though eaten in public restaurants with friends and family - my sanity needs that. But books have allowed me to travel and meet new people - if only in my head. 9mo

tealwish @marleed I love that. Nothing transports you or let's you meet new people like books do! 9mo
j9brown I've had a very slumpy time on and off, my Goodreads goal is fully out of reach, now. Between the pandemic and family drama, I had a hard time focusing, TV and doomscrolling are just easier. What's helping with the slump for me right now is picking some seasonal spooky reads and getting into the spirit of the month 😊🎃 9mo
tealwish @j9brown I lowered my Goodreads goal this year after slumping so hard last year. I also had major family drama last year! May you find a fantastic slump-breaker book soon! 9mo
Reggie Last year when we were first off of work for the pandemic and I panicked and I couldn‘t/didn‘t read for 2 months but then it came back to me. This year we went back to work with triple the business and 75% staff and I couldn‘t concentrate. In order not to feel like a reading failure I got into novellas and short stories so that way I did actually read something. Hope your reading comes back to you! 9mo
tealwish @Reggie My initial pandemic slump lasted 5 months of sadly reading nothing. It's ironic that I was quarantined in my home, and yet my imagination was frozen so I just couldn't read. 2021 has been far better though. Working from home means I put in a lot more hours and have less for my favorite hobby. I need to find better balance. Agree, shorter works help! 9mo

I wasn't sure what to think when I started this magical Western series (Wax and Wayne, Mistborn Era 2), but all 3 books were just fun and each had more depth than the one before. Wayne made me laugh, and the constant mysteries of this world kept me hooked. I can't wait for the fourth book!

If you suffer from depression and anxiety or want to understand someone who does, this honest book explains the true grit of it.

I particularly can relate to the themes of isolation and loneliness in this book. There is something alluring about solitude. I have said in the past that "Isolation is my vice." Even though it can be unhealthy, I crave alone time. Probably most bookworms know what I am talking about.

This story was beautifully crafted and touched me. It deserves the hype. I have to blame my book club because I never would've read this on my own!

The Poppy War | R.F. Kuang
post image
Pickpick

Intense. Not sure how to feel about the ending or the main character right now. It took me down a depressing rabbit hole of reading about the Nanking Massacre which I heard The Poppy War was based on. I had difficulty reading those parts, and then to read that an atrocity happened similar in reality is disturbing. I love that a fantasy expanded my history and deepened my compassion. Perhaps that was the author's goal.

I wanted to read this to find out for myself what is the controversy about these books. They were forbidden books for me growing up. The book did deal with kidnapping, child abuse and some characters exhibit appalling disregard for the lives of children. That's disturbing to me, but it is part of why I got so pulled in. The cruelty to these children must be avenged! The story is rich and enchanting. I will be diving into the sequel.

olivia.ferz I'm reading this right now. Just a few more chapters. I didn't know these books were controversial. What was the reason? 3y
tealwish @olivia.ferz I was told they were the atheist response to Narnia, but I don't get that from the first book at all. Maybe it's anti-organized religion? All I know is I enjoyed it! 3y

My library books I picked up yesterday. I am feeling very indecisive about what to read, so I read the first 10 pages of each. Fahrenheit 451 is for my #LitsyAtoZ challenge. Why is it that as soon as a book is part of a challenge then I no longer want to read it??? It becomes something I SHOULD do, and I hate all the shoulds in life. Does anyone else have this problem? #libraryhaul

kristincatastrophic I don't feel that way about books but I do it with Netfilx. I've yelled "You can't tell me what to watch!" before, even when it's something I did what to watch. Slaughterhouse-Five though, love it! I won't tell you to read that first because then you won't but you should ? 3y
Amiable Yes! I have tried to participate in three different book clubs, and had to eventually leave them because it was a struggle to muster the enthusiasm to read the books that were selected. The minute I'm told I HAVE to or SHOULD read a book, I almost immediately don't want to. I totally get where you're coming from! I think we are what is referred to as "contrarians." ? (edited) 3y

"Hmm. No. I'm telling this wrong."
First Sentence
Among other things, it is a love story between a mother and a daughter. The world has broken apart but what pulled me into this book was this rift - when a daughter is ignorant of who her mother really is/was and when a mother has been cruel to protect her daughter. Can they ever really understand each other?? I am so glad I don't have to wait as I am diving right into book 3.

"Let's start with the end of the world, why don't we?" If you like to judge books by first sentences instead of covers, this book starts just so. Part of the narrative is in 2nd person. For this reason I struggled to connect to the story at first, but I kept going. It pays off when it comes together. There is a reason for the 2nd person, and it's brilliant. I am almost done the second book!
