A gorgeous night for reading outside.
Should have bailed on this. I appear to be in the minority on this one. I did not like it at all. Anyone in the US want this book? I will mail it to you.
Between a pick and a so-so
Four girls, all named Guinevere, form a bond after they‘re dumped at a convent orphanage by their parents. Interesting coming-of-age story, but I could never pinpoint the time period and the ending was somewhat unbelievable.
Audiobook was well done!
I finished my last selection for this season of #booked2018. Four girls named Guinevere end up in an orphanage run by a covent. Each of them has their own story of loss and abandonment and, desperate for love and a sense of belonging,they cling to each other as they keep their secrets and plot how to escape the convent. The writing is lovely but the pace is slow. Still I ended up loving it. #friendship

✨I think #theguineveres by #sarahdomet sounds so unique. I can‘t wait to read this one eventually. I have so many books on my bookshelf that I own or that I borrowed that I still haven‘t read yet. 😂😂 I need two whole days out of the week to dedicate only to reading or something! Lol! QOTD: What do you do that helps make more time for reading??✨
Friday night calls for another giveaway! Comment below if you are interested in these books by tomorrow night at 9pm EST and I will pick a lucky winner 😄
(US only, sorry!)
So I got a little sidetracked with the photo here but it IS a book about teenage girls trying to escape a convent so it works, right? 🤷♀️ Their families have abandoned them to the convent, a War is happening, and the girls are praying fervently that four comatose, unknown soldiers will be their way out. I don‘t think this book will stay with me in a deep way but it‘s deft, funny and dark- always a good combo for me.
Next up! Much needed pedicure and one of my recent Book Outlet bargains.
@L_auren I had to read this one after your glowing endorsement!!! 😃
#signedSunday a few hours early! It was a surprise in a Book Outlet bargain book. 😃👍🏻 Starting this book after a bit of Litsying!
Has anyone else ever had a signed surprise?
OUTTA CONTROL! Book Haul #2 arrived today. I bought all of these simply because I liked the covers! Judge me. I do not care. 🤣
The story of 4 Guineveres who were dropped off by their families at a convent during different points of their lives. United by their names the four girls have a close bond as they navigate life in a convent. The main story covers a year of their life that changed everything. Lots of good quotes in this book and I appreciated the Catholic focus.
