#12BooksOf2021 My favorite from August
This book was gifted to me by the lovely @DivineDiana 💓💓💓 and it just gave me #AllTheFeels
Quiet & quirky
Would work for #FoundFamily #pop22

Bookwormjillk Considering I read your post at 4:58 am I must stack this 😁 2w
CoffeeAndABook Happy New Year Cindy 💫🙌🏼 Right now I‘m in the process of deciding which will be my first read of the new year. I literally finished reading one book last night and can now start a brand new one on New Year‘s Day. Suddenly I‘m feeling all this pressure 🤪 and cannot decide!!! 2w

Cinfhen Something about this book got under my skin @Itchyfeetreader 2w
Cinfhen Happy 2022 @CoffeeAndABook 😘😘how‘s the pup??? I bet it‘s hard to read when you‘re so distracted. Wishing you all good things in the coming year 2w
DivineDiana Glad you loved the book! Love the collage! May the New Year be filled with fantastic books! ❤️📚😘 2w
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen Hi 🙋🏼‍♀️ the pup‘s doing great, she‘s such an impressive brave little soul and sharp as a nail! We‘re all learning a lot and you‘re right - my reading has been sporadic at best 😅 but Zelda‘s coming round to snuggling & gently snoring while I read so my pace is picking up 🙌🏼 do you have a 🐾 🐾 ? I saw some posts with a cute fuzzy darling called Herzl but was under the impression he lives in the US?! 2w
Cinfhen Thanks so much @DivineDiana miss you 😘 Looking forward to our next meet-up, hopefully sooner than later. 2w
Cinfhen Herzl is my daughter‘s pup @CoffeeAndABook so I don‘t get to see him much 😢unless you count the daily FaceTime calls 😜Zelda sounds like she‘s acclimating beautifully. She‘s found the right home to nurture and love her 💕💕💕Nice to hear from you xx swing by anytime for a chat 🥰 2w
Cinfhen Have you settled on a book, Chrissy??? @CoffeeAndABook 2w
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen Yes 😃 I have!!! It‘s a book by Katherine Heiny 😉 so #blameitonCindy!! The one you had tagged is pretty expensive in Germany so I‘ll wait till it comes down in price. But I found an earlier book, Standard Deviation, and am totally enjoying it 🙌🏼 I tend to get so dramatic on Jan 1st, I want to vision board, start the year with an inspirational book, pray and meditate… 2w
CoffeeAndABook ⬆️… none of this ever happens, of course. my siblings both have their birthdays on Dec 31st and Jan 2nd so I end up traveling back and forth instead of quietly slipping into the new year 😂 and the book I found is pretty funny and entertaining - so perfect 👌🏼 also I always enjoy NYC as a setting 🏙😜 2w
Cinfhen Yay!! I haven‘t read that book @CoffeeAndABook so maybe it‘ll be a #BlameItOnChrissy read for me 😉 2w
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen Yessss 🙌🏼😂😘 2w

My favorites 2021 reads! I had two reading goals this year — read 70 books and focus less on reading new releases and more on books I want to read, regardless of publication date. I didn‘t meet my goal of 70 books (too many distractions, both good and bad) coming up rather short at 43 books, but I am happy to highlight multiple non-new releases as my favorites this year 📖📚

Here‘s to making more time for reading in 2022 ✨

Amiable “Notes on a Silencing” made my top list this year, too! And “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, “Rules of Civility” and “The Only Plane in the Sky” are all fabulous reads as well. I‘m going to have to check out your other choices now! 2w
BittersweetBooks @Amiable we seem to have the same taste in books!! I‘ll be watching your recommendations more closely now 😉 2w
Amiable @BittersweetBooks I had the exact same thought! 😀 2w

Thanks @CarolynM You always give such pretty & yum things. I didn‘t get a chance to post this on Xmas eve. Do the early hours of Xmas morning still count?Have a wonderful day with your family. You were right, I won‘t be with mine but have planned a wonderful menu to compensate. It doesn‘t include any sweet potato from these vines that even thrive on the cement in the garden after crawling over the fence from next door. A nice big pumpkin has too.

I loved this - it was comforting every time I opened this book and returned to Boyne City to check in on Jane and her crew. Heiny is a great writer who is able to brilliantly capture mundane moments and ordinary people and make them memorable. “If she were a Crayola crayon, she‘d be Blue Bell.” For fans of Elizabeth Strout.

Cinfhen Agreed! This book was a warm comforting hug - I really loved it. 2mo

I have questions: I have no idea why this is the title of the book and I wonder why they didn‘t edit out about a third of the book. Other than that, the book was an easy read and the characters were fun to get to know. it was oftentimes humorous and made me chuckle. If you‘re looking for a story about life in a small town where everyone knows everything about everyone this is a book for you.

LauraBeth I cannot for the life of me figure out why she titled it this! 3mo

This book was such a pleasant surprise! I LOVED it! It‘s very rare that a book makes me laugh out loud, but that‘s exactly what happened (though it was more of a dry-humor, which is right up my alley). I think this was exactly what I needed to get me out of my “so-so” slump.

She thought that the worst part was not that Duncan had taken her heart…The worst part was that she‘d given it to him. Yes, that was always the worst part. You gave it to him. You carved out a crucial little part of yourself, and you not only gave it to him, you begged him to take it. You were sure at that moment that you would always have an endless supply, or at least more than enough. So you gave it to him 🪴🌤

I don‘t normally need a “palate cleanser” read, as I just roll on to the next thing that pops up on hold for me — but I totally get that need right now. I listened to this on audio which turned out to be the light hearted and sweet entertainment I didn‘t know I needed. Jane is a second grade teacher new to a small town. She meets Duncan, an endearing man though he can‘t seem to keep it in his pants (sorry 🤷🏼‍♀️), and others who become family.

Ruthiella I can‘t read one heavy, emotional book after another. I have to break it up with something that at least doesn‘t make me wince while reading. I enjoyed Standard Deviation by this author and will probably pick this up one of these days. 6mo

I liked these characters. They felt like people I might know: a school teacher, a guy who sleeps with everyone, a man with some disabilities. And they all come together as a family. A nice story.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was … fine. Newcomer, elementary teacher Jane, bonds awkwardly with an unlikely group of small-town locals. Though there are several likable characters and complex situations, it all felt a bit too surface-level. There are snippets of several years, which I liked very much, but I needed more details and emotion. Meh.

Cinfhen Too bad… sounds like this had so much potential but just didn‘t get there 😞Not rushing to read it #SoManyBooksSoLittleTime 6mo

I just kept waiting for something to happen. Even when it did, it felt so distant. Jane seemed completely detached from her life. She lives in a small town surrounded by endlessly exhausting individuals who are all so self-involved they aren't aware of how they impact the lives of those around them. I kept seeing this described as "cozy" & that just doesn't fit. I wanted Jane to do anything to change her life, but she never did. ⭐️⭐️

I had passed this over until @MicheleinPhilly gave it a positive review, and it‘s absolutely charming! Jane, the new 2nd grade teacher, gets involved with ladies man about town, Duncan. Their relationship evolves over years through a series of vignettes as Jane develops a life in her new community. Solidly in contemporary fiction, this novel reads like bingeing your favorite dramedy! Since it has great character evolution, no spoilers! 🤐

The main character in this book,Jane is a saint in my opinion. A young 2nd grade teacher, she starts a relationship with Duncan,older and former lover of nearly every woman who lives there. She is kind, polite and caring of everyone. I did chuckle at times, and could easily picture this as a TV series. Ultimately, it is about acceptance and creating a family that you choose. A quick read with interesting characters, but did not capture my heart.

Good Morning! Yesterday was my birthday, and due to lack of space, not desire, I told my husband that I am not buying anymore books, unless they are special. You know, like signed copies. So, I wasn‘t happy when he ignored me and one of my gifts was a book. He said,“Wait a minute. Open it up.” It was signed. 🤦‍♀️ Also, he supported a local bookstore. 👏🏻

A lovely story told with humour and heart about family and friendship where nothing terribly dramatic happens. It almost made me wish to be a primary school teacher - and not just to reduce the stress of 18 weeks of school holidays per year. Further, looking after a stranger‘s old, smelly, hairy dog whilst they are ill does not seem such a big ask - looking after Jimmy, as sweet as he is at times, is a far greater commitment.

This is a story about the families we create for ourselves rather than the ones we are born into. It is funny, heartwarming, packed with incident and thoroughly entertaining, although I found the quirkiness a little forced at times. I loved Standard Deviation. I didn't love this, but I did enjoy it.

I was really enjoying this one until the sudden timeline skip and Duncan‘s out of the picture and there‘s no immediate reason telling me why. At another time in life, not in the current chaos that is this particular season, I would be patient and stick with it and find out why. But I‘m not. Maybe I‘ll come back to it, maybe not. I was doing just fine with Duncan and Jane, dang it.😕

Read 15 books in April! Still way ahead of where I used to be. Not as much fun as #MiddleGradeMarch, but a successful #YApril in my opinion. I read 9 YA books, finished 5 of the 6 prompts for Spring #BOOKED2021, 3 books for the #DisabilityReadathon and decided to continue reading books with disabled authors or MC each month, read 6 of the 7 prompts for #ThankfulAthon. Also added 15 books to my quest of reading 100 books this year! A good month!

This is such a lovely, heartfelt story that shows that you get back in return what you give in life. Heiny does a wonderful job capturing humankind, all the good and the ugly. This book will make you laugh and cry and everything in between. Just when I thought I knew what this book was about, Heiny changed the entire meaning of this story in the last paragraph of this book and it was all the better for that. Run to read this one, it is so worth it
