I love how the author threads a boy‘s love for a dog into this #middlegrade 9/11 story. An important addition to a classroom shelf or elementary library.

jillrhudy On what date do we start counting our #20booksby2020 ??? 2w
KarenUK @jillrhudy We all committed to 20 books from our TBR that we wanted to read before the end of the year, I think it was sometime back in August?🤷‍♀️... We each made a collage of these 20, and are posting our progress. Never to late to join in! 😊 2w
jillrhudy @KarenUK I don't know; I think maybe it is! LOL but I did read 14 books in October so maybe I could make it! It's committing to the books that's tricky because then I'll hear about a book on a podcast, or get an unexpected ARC. . . 2w

City of Girls | Elizabeth Gilbert
post image

City of Girls is a coming of age story of a well to do young woman from dropping out of college & moving into her aunt‘s playhouse in 1940s NYC through to her old age, with the impact of WWII & many adventures and mishaps along the way. The quirky, bohemian cast of characters she comes to know & love are ahead of their time & you will love them too despite their flaws, learning with her what it means to be human & a true friend. #20booksby2020

I have to be honest and say my #WeeklyForecast in reading will probably be as accurate as a weather report but here goes:
🍁Lilli de Jong for #LilliRead
🍁As Bright as Heaven for #LMPBC
🍁White Fragility for #NFNov
🍁Seven Days of Us for #IRLBookClub
🍁City of Girls for #BBRC & #20booksby2020 -Really need to finish this ebook before the library steals it away!

Cinfhen I like your lineup!!! What does your weather forecast look like??? 2w
BookNAround Tip of the hat for that amazing simile. 😉 2w
Crazeedi I enjoyed city of girls! 2w

#20BooksBy2020 Monthly check in!!
I read 9 more books this month bringing my total to 19!!
Only one to go and it‘s my IRL December bookclub ~ Purple Hibiscus
Favorite this month: Girl, Woman, Other

MelissaSue81 I‘m having trouble getting into girl, woman, other. I keep setting it aside for something else. I should stick it out though? 3w
RachelO Great going! 3w
erzascarletbookgasm So many great titles! 3w

Cathythoughts What @erzascarletbookgasm said ... great titles there 👏👏👏 3w
KarenUK Wow! Awesome job! 💕😊 3w
charl08 Love purple hibiscus. A favourite! 3w
charl08 Great graphic, too. A fun month? 3w
Lifeisasnap Nice job!! How did you like The Dutch House? 3w
Cinfhen @MelissaSue81 stick with Girl!!! In the beginning it seems disjointed but soon the stories start to connect and it‘s super satisfying ♥️🙌🏻 3w
Cinfhen I did have a fun month of reading @charl08 and I DID read some awesome books @KarenUK @Cathythoughts @erzascarletbookgasm @RachelO Dutch House was beautifully written & I was really absorbed in the story @Lifeisasnap BUT I wasn‘t a fan of the ending 😬 3w
marleed @Lifeisasnap @cinfhen I sank into the audiobook of the Dutch House narrated by Tom Hanks and now must own the physical book. I think it will be one of my Top6Reads for 2019. 3w
Cinfhen I bet Tom Hanks was a phenomenal narrator @marleed 3w
marleed @Cinfhen Yes! I‘m curious if I would have loved the story less had I absorbed it in print because Tom Hanks is so good. His ability to speak with the mind of a child is fascinating. 3w
Cinfhen Danny was such a great character @marleed but the mom 🤯🤬 3w
marleed @Cinfhen It reminds my of a good friend whose mother was seldom a part of her childhood. The mom is there in adulthood and I‘m amazed my friend is so accepting of her. My friend explained she just accepts her mother for what she is because that anger is futile. 3w
Cinfhen Your friend is much kinder and smarter than me @marleed Good for her #LifeIsTooShort 3w
