Just chilling with my Sonny and a book this cold morning. #dogsoflitsy
A little snow here today. So, this is a book and 5 cups of tea sort of day. It will be a book and a few glasses of wine kinda night. #letitsnow ❄️❄️
1. Eclectic, tactile, happy.
2. Everywhere all the time haha In the winter, husband and I tend to settle on the couch in the evenings and read. ❤
3. Tagged is best new read; The Blue Castle is best reread; Not the Girl You Marry is the worst (DNF around 50%).
4. Totally loving seeing what three words people choose!!
As anyone who follows hockey knows, hockey is so much more than just a game - it‘s about community, pride, spirit, resilience, belonging. Fredrik Backman captures all that and so much more in this book. I enjoyed it (listened to it on audio) but not sure his writing style is for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Booked2020 #MillenialAuthor #ReadingEurope2020 #Sweden #LitsyAtoZ #abecederianTBR #B #PopSugar2020 #bookwithatleastafourstarratingongoodreads #AuthorAMonth2020
This wasn‘t my favorite Backman but only because I found the subject so difficult. It didn‘t alter my opinion that Backman is some sort of emotional genius. This book made me feel...everything: heartbroken, hopeful, incredibly pissed off, and frustrated, to name a few.

Backman broke my heart over and over in this book but oh my god this passage was like an icicle to the heart. 💔
This was the first Backman book I've read, and the writing was stellar. I still can't get over how he was able to portray so many different people and perspectives in a way that made each decision - even the horrible ones - at least somewhat understandable. This is a book that will stick with me for a long time. Not sure if I have the emotional stamina for book 2, though!!!

Stoner and Beartown in the same week?? It's like I am TRYING to commit emotional suicide. Don't mind me, I'm just quietly sobbing in the corner. Beartown review tomorrow if I've recovered.
