My small book haul as a result of an impromptu trip to the @strandbookstore ! Got some incredible deals, like $13 for a brand-new hardcover copy of All the Light We Cannot See (!!!). Twas utterly magical 😍✨

Two thumbs way up! 👍🏼👍🏼 Heartfelt, raw, and incredibly nuanced, this book is an absolute MUST-READ. It's part mystery, part family drama, part brilliant social commentary--and it 100% captured my heart. I highly recommend the audiobook, too! IMHO, it captures the melancholy tone of the book perfectly. 💙

ElizabethSensa Just read this one and 100% agree with you! 3y
tessaurus @ElizabethSensa Isn't it just THE BEST? 😌 Sadly, now that it's over, I'm feeling a maaajor book hangover coming on...😞 3y
ElizabethSensa The bittersweet book hangover! Maybe the next read could be happy?! 3y

OK this is just plain scary--HOW DID THEY KNOW ABOUT MY LOVE OF HORSES??? 😱 Also hilarious that both my sister @bevy and I got stallions as our Patronuses. Guess it runs in the family! 😂😂😂 #Patronus

Nearly done listening to this book, but I'm enjoying it so much that I bought the paperback from my local bookstore today! 😆 Totally plan on reading the rest of the book along with the audio version tonight. Has anyone else done that? And if so, with what books? Would love to add more audio-friendly books to my ever-growing TBR list!

BeththeBookDragon I do it with the Outlander books, switch back and forth. It helps me get through the book before it's due back at the library! 3y
tessaurus @bethfriedman906 Ooh I might have to try that! I couldn't get through Outlander no matter how hard I tried. But alternating between listening and reading it might help speed things up for me. Thanks, Beth! 3y

Just started this on the train ride home, and I'm already hooked! Great narration, really haunting prose... I'm loving it so far. Couldn't have picked a better book for my first #audiobook experience! 👍🏼

bookishchelle I read this book a while ago and really enjoyed it. It is nice to see more diversity especially hapa characters. 3y
tessaurus @bookishchelle I totally agree!Very refreshing to read about a mixed race family during this time period. The characters feel so multi-dimensional, too. I have to keep telling myself that this is fiction, they're not real people... 😆 3y
MrBook Great book! Met her at a festival, fantastic woman. 3y

tessaurus @MrBook That's so cool! Did you get her autograph? If it were me, I would've probably fangirled all over the poor woman. 3y
MrBook @tessaurus 😂👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻! Yep, and @BookBabe and I got to chat with her briefly about writing. Very nice person. 3y
tessaurus @MrBook @BookBabe Nice!!! 👌🏼 I love it when authors turn out to be just as awesome as their book(s)! 😀 3y

Hands down one of the best books I've ever read. Instead of devouring it, I savored it as slowly as possible, simply because I didn't want the book to end. Agnieszka and Sarkan lingered in my head long after I've turned the last page, and I know that this is a story that I will be returning to over and over again. A true masterpiece, and I can't wait to see it adapted on the big screen.

annahenke Wait, what?? It's being adapted?! 3y
tessaurus @annahenke Yep!!! I know, I freaked out when I first heard about it too! Warner Bros bought the rights and Ellen DeGeneres (!) is the producer. Sounds like it's gonna be EPIC 😍 I wonder who they'll cast as Sarkan... 3y
annahenke OH MY GOSH, I'M SO EXCITED!! If it's Warner brothers, chances are they'll do it right! Thanks for the tip! 3y

tessaurus @annahenke No problem! Happy to spread the word! 😁 3y
Laalaleighh Omg!!! I can't believe this is being adapted!! 3y
Merethebookgal I really need to read this book! I keep hearing great things! 3y
tessaurus @Merethebookgal You totally should! It's an amazing read! 3y
bookishchelle I absolutely ❤️ this book and I am excited that it is being adapted, bit a part of me is worried that it won't be as good I hope. 😬📚 3y
tessaurus @bookishchelle I hear you! Choosing to remain optimistic, though, and keeping my fingers tightly crossed! Esp when it comes to the casting for Sarkan (eep!) 3y

Kicking off this Litsy journey with a good ol' #galleybrag! So excited to get my hands on this--the cover and title instantly drew me in with their quirkiness. Just seems like such a fun read right off the bat. Plus, how cute is it that she's holding a Tweety bird ice cream bar on the cover, complete with the crazy bubblegum eyes?? Ahh major throwback moment 💗 #SeptemberReads

Merethebookgal That is an amazing title! 3y
tessaurus @Merethebookgal Isn't it?? It's so tongue-in-cheek, I love it! 😆 3y
