Did a little book shopping this weekend. Not a bad #bookhaul at all for not even spending $40! I heart used book sales pretty hard.

Beartown: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

Also from my previous #librarybookhaul - I love me some Fredrik Backman. Both of these books get big thumbs up from me. I can't wait to see what he writes next.
Also I love reading outside and taking my book pics outside.

From my previous #librarybookhaul - checked these out to see how I'd like the series and I liked them enough that I bought them both today to have on my shelves. And then checked out the next 3 books in the series today as well when I returned these. I'm a sucker for badass female lead YA fantasy series.

Chemistry | Weike Wang

This was my final tally from yesterday after I went to bed. Finished 5 books in 24 hours. All small books. 250 pages or less. I save those for marathons like this. Went to sleep after finishing Singing Songs by Meg Tilly, which is the first book I've read that wasn't listed on Litsy. Starting Chemistry now. I'll post a complete list of reads when it's all done. But for now back to reading. That's all I'm doing today! #24in48

Back at it again after a little break. Really hoping I can crack the hallway mark today! Update after this reading session! How y'all my with your marathoning? #24in48

CocoReads I'm a little over 8 hours, finished 2 books that I'd started previously, started another but set it aside for now after 50 pages, but I'm over halfway through a third book! This is excellent progress for me. 3y

My boyfriend knows exactly the kind of surprises to bring me. Book presents are the best presents. Glad I get to put this in the shelf with the rest of the series but sad that it's gonna end soon. Anyone else enjoy The Red Queen series like I did? I need recommendations for a new series now!

So good. So very, very good. Not does she know how to give you all the book feels. I needed a minute after finishing this series. And I just LOVE the cover art so much. Love having these two together on my shelves! Anyone else a V.E./Victoria Schwab fan? Have you read this series?

Aninski I loved Vicious, but didn't really enjoy A Darker Shade of Magic... that made me unsure about reading this series 🤔 The covers really are beautiful though 😍 3y

I spend so much time at the library in the summertime. Of these books I loved Sleeping Giants the most. The Reminders was okay but not as good as I wanted it to be. Under Heaven was pretty good too but not going on any of my favorites list any time soon.

#omgthisbookyouguys I am such a V.E Schwab fangirl and this book is soooooooooooooo good. I know she's writing the sequel now and I cannot wait until it's published and I can read it. If you haven't read this, you need to read this! Also books and bubble baths are the best thing.

So if I can get this to post expect to see me clogging your feed with a month of posts I haven't been able to make. I have been working my way through my ya fantasy series. I've been on a big fantasy kick recently. Now I've got to get my hands on the final book in this series!

Here we go again! #riotgrams day 1 #shelfie - this is one of my recently reorganized shelves downstairs where I can only fit 2 bookshelves - eep! - so I like to keep the books rotating so there's new fodder for conversation starters when we have guests. Because I love people who love to talk about books.

tlarocca If someone has a book shelf in their house, I will find it and look at ALL the books. I think its weird when people dont have books... what do thet DO with their time??? 😜 3y

My #bookhaul from #BookstoreDay Saturday! I told Alex I'd pick up just a few books from a couple stores this year. I went to 3 stores. I picked up 34 titles for my bookshelves. Look at all that Christopher Moore! ❤️ So much good stuff! And I found a used unmarked infinite jest I can take a highlighter to and write in the margins for $5. Not pictured are the 30ish comic issues Alex picked up too 😂 anyone else go out for Bookstore Day? #allthebooks

AJ Lee was one of my favorite WWE characters ever. This book covers so many of the things that are important in my life, bipolar disorder, video games, wrestling & feminism. To say I loved this book is an understatement. If it had hockey in it, it would've been the greatest thing ever. This is actually a really good book and I never say that about wrestler memoirs.

Finally got a around to reading this. It was a fairly quick read but it was a really good read. I am so glad I finally took the time to read it. #joandidion can write the hell out of some dialogue.
