It was a heatwave that made me pick up this book - 39C/102F! I was craving something cold. A story of freezing temperatures and the quiet, the stillness of winter. For summer is LOUD. And The Snow Child was just what these unbearably hot few days needed. Read my review https://reallifereading.com/2019/06/27/the-snow-child-by-eowyn-ivey/

RealLifeReading I wonder if this book could work for #booked2019 - #genrebusting as it seems to toe the line between fantasy, fairytale and contemporary. What do you think @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage @cinfhen 4w
LibrarianJen I love reading winter books in the summer. It was 100 degrees outside one year and I was under a blanket reading about almost dying of hypothermia in the Norwegian arctic. The mind plays funny tricks on us that way. 4w
Kalalalatja I get it, sometimes you just need something completely different from your current situation! 4w

I began reading this a few years ago but was privileged to pick it back up recently. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end on my commute to work. The development of characters especially Faina makes you believe you're there inside the story. I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys historical fiction.

A fairy tale about a childless, unhappy couple struggling to survive the harsh climate of Alaska in the 1920s. One day in a moment of whimsy they build a "snow girl.” The next day, they find the snow girl gone and a blond, silent little girl in their barn. This is a character-driven story where not a whole lot happens after that, yet the story is melancholic and you read it with the expectation that something is going to happen, any minute now.

Playing along for #socialsunday, courtesy of @EchoLogical — love getting to know other book lovers so hope you will consider playing too!!

I live right at the northern most tip of Kentucky. I‘m all about literary fiction, classic & contemporary. But I also adore a well-built fantasy world. My favorite author is tough. If picking someone current, maybe Madeline Miller? I read The Snow Child based off a friend‘s rec last summer & it was fabulous.

EchoLogical Fantasy is my jam! I loved Circe but didn‘t really care for The Song of Achilles. 5mo

I can definitely see why people are so taken by this book. It was enjoyable to read but it left me feeling sad and forlorn. I'm somewhat of a Hallmark girl, I enjoy happy endings to stories. I did feel a little connected to the author because of our Alaskan ties. I remember the dark days well. I enjoyed the beginning of this story very much. I would recommend this book for someone who doesn't mind lifes bitter truths.

Happy Reading!

" All her life she had believed in something more, in the mystery that shape-shifted at the edge of her senses. It was the flutter of moth wings on glass and the promise of river nymphs in the dappled Creek beds. It was the smell of oak trees on the summer evening she fell in love, and the way dawn threw itself across the cow pond and turn the water to light."

MrsBibliophile I just started this book, and already I can feel myself being lulled into the syrupy magic of it's tale. Often when we lived in Fairbanks, Alaska I felt the, all consuming, hopelessness of Winter. I'm VERY excited for this book ♡ 6mo

I was pleasantly surprised by this sweet, feel good story about a childless couple who move to Alaska, where a mysterious little girl appears in their life. Is she real or is she a snow fairy? The plot is nice, the descriptions of Alaska are very good.

This is supposedly the retelling of a Russian fairy tale so it fits the #Booked2019 prompt!

This retelling of a Russian fairytale takes place on an Alaskan homestead in the 1920s. Lonely and unable to have children, Jack and Mable build a child made of snow. While the snow child disappears, a little girl begins to visit the couple shortly after and they come to think of her as their own.

Jack and Mabel certainly didn‘t know #50wordsforsnow but they did build a child out of snow during the season‘s first snowfall when they arrived in Alaska.

It seems that the idea for the song came from Kate Bush‘s thinking about the myth that the Inuit Eskimos have 50 words for snow.

tpixie @sammisho yay!!! ❄️❄️❄️ 8mo
tpixie @CouronneDhiver yes!! The flakes were big and fluffy!! 8mo
Pamwurtzler @Karkar did you see this? 8mo
OrangeMooseReads We are supposed to get 2-3 inches of that nasty stuff. I live in the wrong state (Michigan) for hating snow. 8mo
Soubhiville Pretty! 8mo
tpixie @OrangeMooseReads yes! You get tons of sno! Good luck 🍀 trying to embrace it!!! 8mo
Cathythoughts Oh I‘d love to be there .... snow ❄️💜 8mo
Karkar @Pamwurtzler Yeah all the KASH peeps were telling me it was snowing in. Hutch. 😊 8mo
tpixie @Pamwurtzler @Karkar @Soubhiville @Graciouswarriorprincess @Cathythoughts it was pretty! It was a pretty good first snow. The ground got covered , but the streets stayed nice. Hopefully the next snow will be deeper!! @Pamwurtzler & @Karkar at least one of you must be Kroger employees? Our Dillons are now Kroger stores. I wonder how long the Dillons Family said the name had to stay Dillons.... 8mo
Pamwurtzler @tpixie Yes, I did and @Karkar still does work for Kroger. I didn‘t know they‘d changed the name on those stores though. 8mo
tpixie @Pamwurtzler fun! they haven‘t changed. They are still Dillons. I just wonder how long that will last though. 8mo
Pamwurtzler @tpixie Probably forever. It‘s been 35 years plus since they merged! 8mo
tpixie @Pamwurtzler lol. I had no idea it was that long!! 8mo

I ended up loving the tagged book - the story and the writing. It had such a great message of love, grief, survival, and friendship all wrapped up like a fairytale.

My reading companions today. #petsoflitsy

Starting the last book of this round of #lmpbc. The reviews are mixed but I have my fingers crossed that I‘ll like it. I‘m not a big fantasy fan.

Any thoughts on this one?

Amiable I'm not a fan of fantasy or magical realism either, but I liked this book. 9mo
tpixie I loved this book and the characters ♥️♥️♥️ 9mo
bedandabook I loved this book too, and it‘s stayed with me. Hope you enjoy it! 9mo

mamareading I had a memory that I loved this book and then happened on an old book journal entry the other day that said I was really disappointed at the ending. Funny because I don't remember that, I remember enjoying the book! 9mo
Mdargusch Great! Thanks for weighing in. I‘m 100 pages in and I‘m really liking the writing. @Amiable @tpixie @bedandabook @Shvonne @SaturnDoo @mamareading 9mo
CarolynM I agree, it's beautifully written. 9mo
Mdargusch 😁👍🏼 @CarolynM it has great imagery 9mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage For me, this felt more like historical fiction with a bit of a twist. Hope you continue to like it! 9mo
Mdargusch Interesting @BarbaraTheBibliophage you are the first to put it that way. 9mo
rohit-sawant Loved this one so much. It's like a collaboration between Sherwood Anderson and Ray Bradbury. Hope you like it! 9mo
Cathythoughts I liked this one. 9mo
SoniaC Such a wonderful book. 9mo
rmaclean4 One of my all time favorites!! It reads more of a magical realism than a fantasy. Has fairytale vibes. I hope you love it. 9mo
