First of all, *shouts from the rooftops* Litsy (if Goodreads and Instagram had a perfect baby) is now available to Android users! I’ll wait while you guys scramble for your phones.
Now that you’re all on Litsy, let’s get down to it. The app gives you three options when you post about a book: Blurb, Review, or Quote, and I am loving the ‘Quote’ feature very very much, since an excellent quote works as the best sneak-peek book rec for me (and you can simply click ‘Add to Stack’ to add books whose quotes you like to your TBR).
Check out some of our favorite quotes from last month!
- from Marjorie Liu’s The Monstress Vol. 1
- from Helen Oyeyemi’s Mr. Fox
