About halfway through this #audiobook and it‘s entertaining. I‘m not sure I‘m suuuper into it, but I‘ll definitely finish it!

Loved this Pride & Prejudice retelling! The classic storyline fits perfectly in to this updated setting and (better) characters. #audiobook

I listened to this on audio and it was so, so good. I love all of Rainbow Rowell‘s books, I‘ve come to learn. She captures the feeling of young love and being a teenager/young person so well, I can‘t help but fall into her stories. #audiobook #litsyAtoZ

Getting some reading done before I start my day. I have a soft spot for formula reads, anyone else? #litsyAtoZ

bookcollecter I really enjoyed this one. Brown may write formula reads but his knowledge of art and hidden things keeps them engaging. 5mo

10/5 stars I LOVE N.K. JEMISIN. I‘m so glad I have finally gotten around to starting the Broken Earth trilogy. Jemisin‘s world building and the themes she explores in her books are 👌

BillBlume I loved this trilogy. Brought me near to tears. 4mo
thelizflynn @BillBlume I have one more book to go, but there have definitely been tears already! 4mo

“Ghost stories are about how we face, or fail to face, the past- how we process information, how we narrate our past, and how we make sense of the gaps in that history. Besides, even if we could dispel them once and for all, we need them too badly.”

Boxers | Gene Luen Yang, Lark Pien

This was a very interesting history of the Boxer Rebellion. US students (at least where I went to school) learn about this period of Chinese history only briefly, and of course the brutality that people lived through and experienced is glossed over in textbooks. I went ahead and borrowed Saints from my library right after I finished this!

ClairesReads Cool- I‘m looking forward to reading this one soon 11mo

Night Film: A Novel | Marisha Pessl

Mehso-so

This book was fine. It‘s a fast-paced page-turner with lots of twists and turns. Also- kinda creepy would not recommend if you don‘t like scary movies and would not recommend reading this when you‘re alone in your apartment trying to go to sleep. 😳

I haven‘t read literary fiction like this in a while. It‘s nice to be back, even though this story is about the horrific cruelty of Spanish colonizers.

This book was a lot sadder than I was expecting 😳 I did enjoy it, but it‘s the kind of book I wouldn‘t recommend to just anyone. There‘s a lot of trauma. #audiobook

BiblioLitten Does it have a happy ending? 12mo
thelizflynn @BiblioLitten I‘d say it does have a positive ending. It leaves you on a happier note! 12mo

I get to read for work?! How did I get so lucky? This is the latest historical fiction we‘re reading for my museum‘s book club. It tells a fictionalized version of Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle‘s life, and the infamous death of Virginia Rappe and how it contributed to significant change in Hollywood. Although I have some qualms about accuracy, it‘s overall entertaining, if kind of depressing. #historicalfiction #tbr

I am living for all the dirt Leah dishes on Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes‘ wedding. So weird. What the actual f* is Scientology. Don‘t @ me. Yes, I went back and watched Tom‘s infamous couch jumping on Oprah. Yes, it was even more cringey than I remember. 🙃
