Sitting in the new hire orientation I am leading & I think I might be #ChasingRainbows to get my facilitator for this distribution section to stop sitting.😠🙄😆It‘s afternoon, he needs to pump up the energy!
Anyway... back on topic, here are three “rainbow” titles from my shelves—two chick-lit books & the tagged cookbook that promises “Recipes and Ideas for Rainbowlicious Desserts” in its subtitle. 🌈📚

DebinHawaii I was way into Katherine Stone soapy romances in the late 80s-90s. My romance-hoarding aunt passed them on to me to read. 😉 (edited) 4w
Cinfhen That sprinkles cookbook looks delicious 🌈😋I‘m imagining all the goodies 😇 4w
squirrelbrain Totally agree @Cinfhen - I‘d like cake now please, even if it is 6.30 in the morning.... nothing wrong with cake 🍰 for breakfast! 4w
Cinfhen Cake for breakfast is pure joy @squirrelbrain 😇😇😇 4w

This is on my TBR list, because it's one of the books on my Greatest Opening Lines of Literature mug, but I haven't read it yet. #AyUpAugust #ChasingRainbows

CaitlinR It‘s been a long time, but my younger self loved it — hope you will too. 4w
Billypar Good choice: I have the same mug and Gravity's Rainbow is also on my 'one of these days' list. 4w
Godpants Good luck! It‘s a lot. I‘ll probably try to finish it someday. 4w
Cinfhen It‘s a title I‘m familiar with but I have no idea what the book is about 🙄#MaybeOneDay 4w

Eleanor & Park | Rainbow Rowell

#AyUpAugust #ChasingRainbows
I‘m not usually much of a YA reader, but this one definitely got under my skin.... The writing is really lovely, and these 4 quotes have stayed with me.... Romantic in the best way... Sweet but not cloying!
I love that Eleanor doesn‘t have to change, she can just be herself, and Park finds her beautiful, whatever anyone else says..... and vice versa. Such a lovely book 💕🌈📚

squirrelbrain I haven‘t read this one yet.... 4w
Cinfhen YOU MUST @squirrelbrain !!!!!! It‘s THE BEST LOVE STORY EVER without being cheesy & saccharine 4w

#AyUpAugust This book was gifted to me by the fabulous @Hooked_on_books and I can‘t wait to read it!! The cover made me think of a rainbow, and the subject matter made me think of #PRIDE 🏳️‍🌈which led me to today‘s prompt #ChasingRainbows 🌈🌈🌈

Jennick2004 Gorgeous! 4w
Lola This cover always catches my eye. 4w

The Heirs | Susan Rieger

What happens when the father you thought you knew may or may not have a whole other secret family? This is part of this novel‘s storyline...as a family comes to terms with the recent death of the patriarch, a woman comes forward to get part of the inheritance for her children. This was an okay read for me, nothing spectacular, just okay. Anyone chasing an inheritance is #chasingrainbows , chasing dreams. #ayupaugust

Cinfhen Sounds good but I‘m getting the feeling this is a #BorrowNotBuy 😉 4w
squirrelbrain Nice cover though! 😁 4w

Yes, I am a) old enough and b)childish enough for this to be what popped into my head when I saw #ChasingRainbows as today‘s #AyUpAugust prompt! 🎶 up above the trees and house, rainbow flying high.... 🎶

squirrelbrain I used to love Bungle! Didn‘t like Zippy - far too confident and extrovert for me! 🤣 4w

Well, any prompt featuring the word 'Chase' is going to take me to this show, isn't it?! 😂😂😂

#AyUpAugust #ChasingRainbows this book came to mind , but I‘m chasing memories because I can‘t remember if I read this or not. 😳🤷🏻‍♀️.... maybe years ago, must have a look & see

jenniferw88 I almost used this one! 💕💕💕 4w
Lcsmcat I‘m in the same boat! It‘s been on my shelf for years, and I think I read it in the 80s, but I remember nothing. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 4w

squirrelbrain Don‘t be silly @jenniferw88 - you were never going to go with a rainbow when there‘s also the word ‘chasing‘ in the prompt! 🤣 Great pick @Cathythoughts ! 4w
Cathythoughts @jenniferw88 great minds 👍🏻♥️ 4w
Cathythoughts @Lcsmcat Oh stop ! It‘s mad , I definitely remember Lady Chatterleys Lover ... I read a lot of classics back then & really loved them 4w
Cathythoughts @Cinfhen I took from the internet & all the covers are amazing ✨ 4w
Lcsmcat @Cathythoughts I remember Lady Chatterly too, but I was younger when I read that. It‘s just like Billy Collins said https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/37695/forgetfulness 4w
andrew61 I read several of lawrences books in my teenage/twenties cathy. I think it's time for a reread. I think I'll make it a plan for 2020! 3w
