The last one I finished this weekend...this one I did as an audiobook and it was really well narrated...all in all a cute story.
Slow start but multiple story lines with plots that converge at the end. Heart warmingly sad. Worth the read
“But she was wonderfully striking, with a presence that still reached out from all those years ago and captivated him. She had been dead for forty years, but she was still his life, and her death had given him his purpose. It had made Andrew Peardew the Keeper of Lost Things.”
The writing... 💜💜 #thekeeperoflostthings
Finished listening to The Keeper of Lost Things- Best in the cast of characters were Eunice & Bomber & his narcissistic sister. An easy read. Just beginning to listen to The Strange Journey of Alice Pendelbury- so far, it also has a little magic. I am intrigued. Also, I love the cover! #audiowalking #audiocleaning #Litsywalkers
This is a charming story however it took me more than half of the book to figure out the connection between Eunice and Laura; I kept thinking that Bomber and Antony were the same person until one finally spoke about the other. The love story was cute and I really liked Sunshine‘s character a lot. Book 15 of 2019
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ @j9brown thank you so much! I love it all. The kitty spoons are so cute and coffee is always a good thing. And thanks to @BookishMarginalia for putting this swap together. #CupidGoesPostal ❤️💜❤️💜❤️
2. Going to a local pizza restaurant with my son and hubby - tradition started 10 years ago when I wanted low key and local since my scheduled c-section was 2 days later. We always say my son was with us that day too even if we didn‘t know he was a “he” 😂
4. I think my mother said George
I‘ve found a new trigger area for me: Magical Disabled People. This now joins “funny” portrayals of incest.
I used to work with adults with disabilities and I have a son with an invisible disability. People with disabilities are wonderful. But whimsical, telepathic “child” adults? Nope - I‘m outta there.
The story has been called cute, so I thought I‘d prove my cute loving credentials by including Lola cat & some throw cushions in the pic.
For #AlwaysLookOnTheBrightSideOfLife I thought I‘d go for one of the brightest book covers I own (thanks @TrishB 😘). Isn‘t it sunny-looking? One of many books that will DEFINITELY get read in the next few months! #positivethinking #justassoonasovefinishedthetaxreturn

@Louise ... thank you so much for this lovely read. I this story, the characters and their backstories. The author did a nice job developing each character‘s quirks and intertwining their stories. Definitely a 2019 fave!
Read 2019/01/22 📖🎧⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Starting this book and doing a little #audiocleaning (dishes). 🎧 It‘s off to a good start.
Gonna be a pajama kind of day. Too cold and icy to leave the house. Stay warm, Littens!
I'm still trying to read this. It's not that it sucks, it's just the holidays make me depressed and I already deal with depression so it's not fun.
But the holidays are over and the new year has style, so...I'm trying to feel better and get back into reading.
Fabulous overall premise (a man who loses the love of his life finds purpose collecting lost objects,) and in the words, a lot of brilliant imagery. The story is sound, but past the 1/4-way mark, I wasn't turning pages with as much gusto. The characters felt real but in a surreal way, real for the world the author created. There's a touch of paranormal, which guest-stars in the role of plot device, but I wouldn't say plot was governed by it.
One of the smartest things I‘ve done lately is to sign up for #LitsyPenPals which introduced me to @Louise I truly enjoy our snail mail 💌📬(and Litsy and Fb) correspondence. Thank you you for these great goodies. I love the ornament made of lines from two of my favorite Maya Angelou poems (Still I Rise and Phenomenal Woman). Merry Christmas, Louise!
This one started out as so-so and ended more like a pan. I did not like jumping back and forth between two stories (it was hard to follow), I did not like that one of my favorite book series (Harry Potter) had a raunchy sex novel spoof in this book called “Harriet Hotter” (that‘s just dumb) and I feel like so much time was spent on the ghost of Therese that the description of the book wasn‘t even accurate. It was a neat concept, but a boring read.
Currently reading, my cat kima approves
I didn't expect so much sadness with a cover like that!
But there also was hope, love and an undeniable sense of mystery and intrigue.
The story moved slowly, was mostly unbelievable, but unconventional characters, creativity and whimsical writing makes this book enchanting and engaging :)
#unpopularopinion This was really boring and almost nothing happened. The relationship with Sunshine was a highlight as was the addition of the dog. I only finished it for book club, otherwise I would have bailed. #readwomen
It is one of the books you can read at bedtime and not have bad or weird dreams. There are stories within stories and all come together in a sweet, fun way in the end. I really liked the character, Sunshine. You really forget that she has Downs and love her for her charm and her sweet, honest way of looking at the world. And btw Predictable doesn‘t bother me when the story is good.
Well... I tried. But this one just didn't grab me. It had charming moments that make me think that maybe someday I'll try again - but there's too many books in my TBR pile to waste any more time trudging through this one. Beautiful cover though!!!
1.) my niece eating ramen
3.) read and a coffee date with my sister ♥️
4.) a highlighter
5.) she was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens till her boyfriend kicked her out in one of those crushing scenes! What was she to do, where was she to go? She was out on her fanny!
I didn‘t come here to be attacked in this manner 😂 OOF MY FEELS.
With the tagged book finished, I am officially done with both the 2017 and 2018 #popsugarreadingchallenge for the year! 💪💪💪👏👏👏😍😍😍 Now I'm going to read a bunch of YA and smut until the end of the year so prepare yourselves!
