Had fun finishing this today. I learned a lot about the Queen. I read it for the ATY challenge prompt #34 a book with a person‘s name in the title.

This was fast but sweet read that felt timely given the current political climate. I appreciated the overall structure and how it read - specifically the change in perspectives and how everyone and everything seemed to be intertwined. I enjoyed following Natasha and Daniel and watching them grow, both as individuals and as a unit. I felt their inner struggles and was happy to see them resolved, even if not completely, by the end.

SW-T That ending! Glad I read the epilogue 😊 3d

I wanted to love this one. I think I just didn‘t “get” much of the humor. Still finishing the series in hopes that I read them at a better time for me. #ATY2019

My day started on a low by oversleeping and being late to work, but this sweet chai brightened my day🤩 So far my #BFC is going really well, and I am on good track of reaching my goals for week one 🙌🏻

Started the tagged book for my TBR challenge in #Reading1001 and #AtY2019, and it seems to be a good one! Don‘t know why I waited so long to start it, hopefully the rest of the book will be just as good!

Marina_h Nice photo 😍 Do you have a watch for this fitbit app or how does it work? (I sound old when I ask questions like that🙈) 5d
hilded @Marina_h Thank you 😘 Yes, I have a watch (Fitbit Charge 2), which keeps tracks of the basics such as pulse, steps etc as well as SMS/meetings notifications. It‘s great for simple tracking and much less costly than for example an Apple watch. 5d

Pigs in Heaven: Novel, A | Barbara Kingsolver

The character building in this book is so good! Although the plot fell a bit flat in the middle, I was captured completely by the story of Taylor and her adopted daughter Turtle, a Cherokee. A Cherokee lawyer fights the adoption and states that Turtle should be raised by her own community. Taylor of course can‘t let her go and fights back in the only way she knows.

The book started out as a quaint book. It was easy to read. The last quarter to a third of the book, it just got weird. I‘m also not sure what to think of the ending. I read it for the ATY prompt - a book about books prompt #12 #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

I read this on a whim. Dennis Quaid was the reader and I‘m not a fan of his voice but he actually did a really good job with it. I haven‘t read a thriller in awhile and it was a nice break from what I‘ve been reading. It was a fun book and I wanted to finish it so much that I read the last few chapters in the physical book. I read it for ATY prompt book with a mostly black cover. #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

Day 1 of #bookfitnesschallenge. My goals are pretty lax: 1. Move every day. 2. Listen to a book while I move. 3. Continue a low carb, low fat way of eating. I lost 13 pounds last month. Only 80 to go. 😂 #gilmoregirlsreadingchallenge #aty2019

Clwojick 13 lbs! That‘s awesome! Keep up the awesome work! ♥️ 1w

The Stranger's Child | Alan Hollinghurst

I was sure I would love this book. Hollinghurst is such a good writer and I love his English-ness and his plots. At least I did in In the Line of Beauty and The Swimming Pool Library.
So I didn‘t want to give up but halfway through this one I had to admit I wasn‘t in the least interested in the parade of characters that came and went. It is more a portrait of England in the 20th century than a novel I think. For me that didn‘t work. #manbooker

BarbaraBB I read this book for #ATY2019: book by an author who has more than one book on your TBR. 2w
