Pinned toot

I feel like I should say this: I'm not following non-book accounts with this account. It's not because I hate you, I just want to keep my home timeline here book-related.
If you super duper like me come follow @Julia@boringpeople.org and if you super duper like me and we've actually talked to each other before follow @Julia. :fingerguns:

I guess I should do some , eh?

I used to read a lot (mostly fantasy and scifi) but over the years I went from >100 books/year to 34 last year. Unfortunately that has not deterred me from accumulating even more books. It's a problem, y'all!
I'm hoping being part of this instance is going to motivate me to read more again.

Have touched the first book in months two days ago:
"I'll Be Gone In The Dark" by Michelle McNamara.
The older I get the more often I just go for non-fiction.

I have too many accounts so I'm closing this one.
I'll still do and talk about books (hopefully more often in the future) over on @julia

Only three people voted and only one book has more votes than the others.
So the book for December is Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture by Roxane Gay and the second book is one of the old ones you haven't gotten to yet.

Okay, people want books (shocking 😁 ), so throw suggestions at me for the next 48 hours!

peeps:
How is the reading going? Do you want a new book for December or do you want a break since it's going to be a stressful month?

My book just took an abrupt left turn and I am now super confused.

If the word "twentysomething" appears in the synopsis of your book, I will not read it.

Dear friends, the results are in.
The books for November are
1. Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness by Peter Godfrey-Smith
2. The Chemistry Between Us: Love, Sex, and the Science of Attraction by Larry Young & Brian Alexander

Ooooh, it's Goodreads Choice Awards time again.
Prediction: I know three of ALL the nominated books, I will try to read some of the winners and will get annoyed at myself because only really bad books win.
Same procedure as every year.

The names are... something.
Isla and Logan are the protagonists. Ilana and Imogen are her sisters and Magnus, Cade and Caspian are his bros.

This is a lot of plot and dialogue and I'm not here for that.

This sounds absolutely horrible and I hope it will be as entertaining as and not as disturbing as .

Ah good, he sees the "far too sweet, far too innocent" Princess Isla and wants to "possess" her. This is fine and not creepy at all.

"They call me a beast, though I was a prince once."
My prediction: it's a hunky, tattooed royal who is the black sheep of the family and became a rockstar instead of participating in the royal stuff.

Hello and welcome to the next book I'll livetoot. It's called and you should definitely filter that. 😁

BookToot Club

A place for sharing and discussing books. After suggesting a Mastodon-based book club and getting a lot more interest than I expected, I decided to make a place specifically for facilitating that. So this aims to be a home for creating and organizing book clubs and read-alongs.

Not just for clubs, though. Like books? Want to talk about books and read about what other people are reading? Congrats, you're welcome here.

Well, with some restrictions. No hate speech, threats, etc. See our rules/code of conduct for more of that and general posting guidelines.

Not looking to join a new instance but wanting to join in the discussion anyway? No problem, just look for and use the hashtags.

This instance also now has its own Patreon page to help with the basic costs and maybe even (if I'm being very optimistic) help it grow into more. Check it out if you're willing/able to consider helping me out that way.

Thanks for stopping by!
