So Big | Edna Ferber

I LOVED THIS. The language was charmingly of its time, but also unbelievably modern-feeling. Selina Peake is a great character, and her story conveys so much about vocation, identity, beauty, and the meaning of life. And I loved the Midwest setting. I‘m finally reading Ferber after learning that she has roots in the same area of Wisconsin where I grew up. Not sure how I wasn‘t more aware of her back then, but I look forward to making up for that.

#MayMovieMagic Day 24: For the ten days we are here in Bali (today, being the last day) we were #WaitingForTheMiracle of the sunrise and sunset each day. It was like a spectacular show that we look forward to. The sunset we wait around for with margarita and mojito. This must be my favourite vacation, ever.

I had to google Ticket to Ride to come up with something for today‘s #Beatlemaynia prompt and found this. I have never heard of the board game but it looks fun. Lots of editions giving you a ticket to ride different cities and countries. I would love someone to tell me a little about them if you‘ve played.

Devastating story, but a fascinating read (and it always feels so weird to describe these real-life disaster books this way). But, they can be (and this one is) so compelling.

It sounded like a good mystery about missing persons, with a strong female lead and interesting characters. But it just didn‘t work. The characters were annoying, but not interesting. No one ever seemed to do anything but talk. After pages of dialogue, wondered how they‘d solve a case since no one seemed to be working it. Decided to move on.
