Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments Hi Mell! Here you go:

A Little Christmas Faith - because it still feels like Christmas :)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - I love the Harry Potter books.
Blood Laws - just because it is a different genre than the other two.


message 6: by Mell (new)

Mell (mellrouvray) | 145 comments Thanks, I think I will go with Blood Laws to start something new :)

Soviet Milk - highest rating
Pachinko - this is on my tbr as well.

Oh gosh, I want to read all three!
It will probably be Soviet Milk because I'm trying to read more new books this year.

message 18: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments That sounds good, Lagullande. I hope you enjoy it.

Lagullande | 411 comments Lusie wrote: "That sounds good, Lagullande. I hope you enjoy it."

I'm sure I will at some point, but I've changed my mind and started Pachinko instead. I did say I wanted to read them all!


message 20: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments Haha, no problem! Pachinko is on my TBR as well. Can you let me know what you think of the book after you have finished it?


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 94 comments Please pick three books from my shelf, thanks.

My bookshelf


message 22: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments Hi Christina,

Caraval - I keep seeing this book everywhere. I wonder if it is good.
The Royal We - everyone needs a bit of romance every now and then ;)
Murder in the Secret Garden -Cozy mysteries is still a new to me genre. This one sounds good


message 23: by Abbie (new)

Abbie | 174 comments Thanks Lusie, I read Alias Grace, and it was great. Hope you get to fit it in soon!

Lagullande | 411 comments Lusie wrote: "Haha, no problem! Pachinko is on my TBR as well. Can you let me know what you think of the book after you have finished it?"

Hi Lusie. Pachinko was long, but a pretty quick read. I gave it 4 stars (although half-way through, I was considering downgrading to 3). I recommend it if you like historical family sagas. And it taught me something new about Korean history.


message 25: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments Glad you liked it, Abbie! I haven't found a challenge yet to use it for, but I'll certainly read it this year.

Lagullande, I do like that kind of books so I'll keep it on my tbr. Thanks for letting me know!

A Tangled Mercy - I've heard good things about this book
Far From True - I love this author and liked how the series started. Can't wait to read this one :)

I'm on hold for the audio of Without Merit, so I'll go with one of the others. I have both books, so I'll decide over the next few days. Thanks, Lusie!

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments You are welcome!

Judy | 170 comments Hi Lusie! I landed on your property. Could I have 3 picks from my shelf? https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...

Thanks!


message 32: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments Hi Judy! How about...

Hot Zone - highest rating
Dancing in the Duke's Arms - something romantic
The Storm Before the Storm: The Beginning of the End of the Roman Republic - because it's a different genre; non-fiction

Thanks for the great choices. I'll probably go with the non-fiction (it will fit in wheel of bookshelves and a couple other places.)

CluckingBell | 327 comments Hello, Lusie! I haven't been here since you bought the place. Would you come up with 3 books for me to pick from? :-)

message 35: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments Hi Cluckingbell, welcome back :D

River Thieves - this sounds good
Silent Scream - because I love mystery/crime books
City - because it is a different genre than the others

Thank you, Lusie! This is a hard choice, as the first book's author I've been wanting to read for a long time, the second I have as an ebook to complement all the paper books I'm currently reading, and the third I need as an upcoming IRL book club read. I think I better sleep on it....


message 37: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments that does sound like a hard choice! I think if I were you I'd go for the book you have been wanting to read for a long time, River Thieves.

CluckingBell | 327 comments Lusie wrote: "that does sound like a hard choice! I think if I were you I'd go for the book you have been wanting to read for a long time, River Thieves."

That's how I'm leaning, assuming I can find my copy (to be honest, I don't just have a Mount TBR at my house, but a small mountain range).

LaurLa | 1198 comments Hi Lusie! I have landed on And the Mountains Echoed with you - May I have 3 choices please?
LaurLa's Bookopoly Shelf


message 40: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments Hi Laurla!

Scarlet I love the series.
Beast Behaving Badly this one has got a high rating.
First Star I See Tonight I like the cover.

Kristina Simon (kristinasimon) | 724 comments Hi Lusie! I've landed on your property! Could I please have 3 selections from my bookopoly shelf? Thanks!


message 42: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments Hi Kristina, here you go:

Out of Africa could be interesting
The Invisible Bridge I thought this was a good book.
Catch of the Day After these books you need something light. I think this is a cute cover :)


message 43: by Kristina Simon (new)

Kristina Simon (kristinasimon) | 724 comments Thanks, Lusie! I'm going to go with The Invisible Bridge. I've been itching to get to that one. :-)

Hi Lusie *waves*

Could I request 3 picks from my shelf please? Cheers!


message 47: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments Hi Tien! *waves back*
I was so tempted to choose to choose the next book in the stormlight archive series, but I think you're not ready yet. So I'll keep that one in mind for next time ;)

To Green Angel Tower, Part 1 - I love this series.
The Sky So Heavy - I like this title
An Unkindness of Magicians - this sound good, I'll add it to my tbr.


message 48: by Tien (new)

Tien (tiensblurb) | 8676 comments Mod
er yep, not ready for Oathbringer yet ha ha ha... I'll wait for you! After your exams? I don't I'd pick it up that soon unless I'm reading with someone else ha ha ha

It's probably going to be An Unkindness of Magicians since it's a library book due at the end of this month although I think this is the 3rd time for Green Angel so err... I'll see how I go when I finish my current reads :)

Thanks, Lusie!


message 49: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 3113 comments Haha. Are you going to read book 2.5 Edgedancer? If yes maybe we can squeeze that book in before we move on to book 3. Yes after exams would be best. While studying I tend to go for the quick and easy reads.

Could you let mee know what you think of An Unkindness of Magicians?

I keep picking that series for you lol Tad Williams is one of my favorite authors, so I can't help it.

Hm, I wasn't going to but now that I think about it, I am rather curious about Lift. Where have you slotted this book for in WoB, if at all?

As I said, it takes me forever to pick thick books... lol
