#Foundations is definitely a song about a relationship going sour, heading for a break-up...
It made me think of this super clever, unique way to tell a story of a relationship from beginning to end, through dictionary entries. (See examples ⬆️)
Told non-sequentially, it goes from heartbreaking to really funny and back again, with such beautiful use of each chosen word.
An all time favorite this one.... 💕💕💕

Cinfhen Clever choice!! I received this book in my first #CupidGoesPostal swap from the amazing @WanderingBookaneer 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕 1mo

Lazy day for me and Henry (Tuesday‘s are my Sunday‘s). While he takes a nap, I‘m going to try to sneak in another chapter or two of reading.

Anyone else really struggle with their #catsoflitsy attempting to eat their books?

GondorGirl My Tommy used to try and chomp my books. Luckily he seems to have grown out of it. 2mo
julesG Not the books, but the notes stuck in some books. Not sure what my #CupidGoesPostal match had next to the note paper, but it's only the notes from this particular Litten that I had to rescue from their specific books. They are in a ziploc bag now. 😬 2mo
hjreviews @GondorGirl I hope Henry grows out of it! Having to “hide” all my books all the time is irritating to my inner book nerd and desire to show off my collection 😂 2mo

I received this book in the #cupidgoespostal swap from @Savedbygrace I loved the mystery of this story and the way the author was able to piece together the story from a collection of letters.

I got myself a new book light. I am so dang excited for this thing. It has 3 different shades of white light with 3 different intensities for each one AND it's rechargeable! Who knew I would be this excited over something so simple🤷‍♀️ #itsthelittlethings #booklight

Slajaunie I want one! What is the brand name? Where did you get it? 4mo
julesG This is such a good book light. I got it in the #CupidGoesPostal swap. @Slajaunie it's called "LuminoLite" and I'm sure you can find it on amazon. 4mo
WorldsOkayestStepMom I need a rechargeable book light, but I didn't even think they existed (mostly because I didn't look)! Thanks for sharing! 4mo

You nailed it, @angela_fi13 , with these #CupidGoesPostal book selections. Rosa Montero is familiar to me, but I had not read this one and the edition is lovely! The crime novel looks right up my alley — a mystery with archeology and mythology, AND written by a woman. 👍🏼 The last one is totally new to me but I‘m a sucker for philosophical novels about too-intelligent people dealing with aging and mortality. Thank you!

Avanders Looks really good — doesn‘t look like there‘s an English translation? Are this author‘s books typically translated? Reading Spanish would be worse than a slog for me... I‘m not nearly good enough 😜 5mo
AnnHeitman I don't like Rosa Montero that much...but all my girl friends readers love her!! 5mo
angela_fi13 Me alegra muchísimo que haya llegado a salvo!!! Pero además que te guste mi selección es un motivo más de alegría para mi. Abrazos!!! Y espero que lo disfrutes mucho! 5mo

NOOOOOPE. I was looking forward to this book so much and it was not.... it was not what I wanted at all. Uh, it was not my cup of tea. It was bad. I read a good chunk and then, kind of fed up, I decided to skim a bit to see if the rest would be worth reading. Nope.

🔴 MINOR SPOILER 🔴 Warning for animal cruelty, I wish I hadn‘t read what I did, honestly, considering the ending

grumpygirlbooks @j9brown I know this was one your list for the #CupidGoesPostal swap, and I almost got it for you - but based on your preferences I‘m really glad I didn‘t, I might suggest you not pick this one up 😬 5mo
j9brown @grumpygirlbooks Whooaa, the summary for this sounded neat but yeah, between your review and that spoiler... I think this one's getting deleted from the "buy later" list. Thanks for the warning!! What a bummer. 5mo
Megabooks Thank you for the warning!!! #skip 5mo

I just received this beautiful card from @Gaylagal2 with a lovely message?You didn't have to but I am grateful. I am happy that you liked the #CupidGoesPostal box. I love these swaps because is an opportunity to know new persons through the gifts we send after spending a lot of time "stalking" our matches☺️I am always nervous because I want that my match feels happy at the moment the box is opened. Thank you for this lovely gesture?❤️❤️

Gaylagal2 Ahhhh, Gisela it was my extreme pleasure! Your package to me was so touching and I will remember you, Puerto Rico and #cupidgoespostal everytime I read these books and look at my cute little stuffed doggie (his name is also Chico 😉)❤️. 6mo
Gissy @Gaylagal2 A cute name! ❤️ 6mo
