#ImHere for #You
Almost done with this one. Digging it so much! I'm listening to the audio version alongside the text, and Santino Fontana's fantastic narration adds an extra layer of creepy.
@Cinfhen @vivastory

Cinfhen I can‘t wait to watch this one on #Netflix ~ loved both books!!! 4mo
vivastory @Cinfhen I haven't read the second one yet, but might do so this week. I'm on a bit of a thriller kick at the moment. 4mo
rohit-sawant @Cinfhen So looking forward to the adaptation, too! 🙌🏽 I think I'll be diving into the second one soon as well @vivastory 4mo
Cinfhen Second book NOT as good as the first @vivastory @rohit-sawant but still a “fun” follow up. 4mo

Strange the Dreamer | Laini Taylor

Too much work, not enough Litsy the last few days! But #ImHere and I managed to #audiocook this vegan mushroom risotto with spinach for dinner tonight. I'm not generally a pictures-of-food person but I was real proud of myself 😆.
So far I'm enjoying the tagged audiobook. Been reading a lot of heavy books lately, needed something fun.

readordierachel @minkyb This is my first of hers. So far so good! 4mo
tracey38 Looks good. And I am with you... too much work, not as much time for Litsy or reading with my new job. Hope to catch up on both over the weekend. 4mo
readordierachel @tracey38 Why does adulting always have to get in the way? I hope you're liking your new job! And that you can find a good balance of working and reading/Litsy time. 4mo

Where Goldfish Go: A Novel | Claude CATTAERT
post image

#ImHere, wondering why I bought this book at a thrift shop this past weekend. 😂😂

Actually, I was most definitely influenced by the garish 1960s cover and that blurb.


Christine I‘m looking at it and thinking “How could you NOT buy it??” Everything about that cover is perfection, and the blurb takes it over the top. 4mo
BookHoarder32 You'll have to let us know where the goldfish went 😂 4mo
readordierachel How can you resist a book that had "all of Paris chuckling"??? ? 4mo

ferskner I wouldn't be able to pass up that blurb either. 4mo
CarolynM It's certainly got my attention. Where did they go? 4mo
Tanisha_A Agreeing with @readordierachel! 😉 4mo
Tanisha_A And the cover certainly. 😍 4mo
Tamra Totally can see why. 4mo
emilyhaldi Quite the blurb!! 4mo
Cinfhen Sophisticated novel with goldfish in the title!!! Perfect 4mo
merelybookish How can you not want to know what had Paris chuckling?! 4mo
batsy I agree, you had to buy it! 😁 4mo
Tonton Great cover! 4mo
saresmoore That‘s an A+ blurb. 4mo
MicheleinPhilly Spoiler alert: Down the toilet. 4mo
rubyslippersreads I wouldn‘t have been able to resist! 😄 4mo
Chrissyreadit I‘m chuckling over the comments here- how could you go wrong??? 4mo
LauraBeth I would have bought that for sure! 4mo
DivineDiana I too could not have resisted! 😀 4mo
AlaMich That‘s a whole lotta orange right there! 🧡🧡🧡 4mo
LeahBergen @BookHoarder32 @CarolynM See @MicheleinPhilly ‘s comment above for the best answer to your question! 😂😂😂 4mo
Cinfhen That‘s hilarious @MicheleinPhilly 🙌🏻❤️ 4mo
vivastory This thread 😂😂😂 4mo
LeslieO I love everything about that cover. 4mo

It‘s 5:30am in Aus and #ImHere with my latest book (really good - bout asbestos mining, doctors and Western Australia) waiting for the kids to wake up. It‘s first day back to school after the long Xmas holidays (they‘ve been off since November 😬), so I‘m fully caffeinated and ready for the drop-and-run-to-work routine of normal life again.

Cinfhen Wow!!!! First day back at school!! Is it like a whole new term??? Meaning the kids are entering new grades??? 4mo
JennyM @Cinfhen yep, this is the start of their school year. So I am now the proud owner of a grade 4 and grade 1!!! 4mo
Cathythoughts Good luck with it all. We all know, I think ... that they secretly love the return to school. ... their friends & routine ... hope you are well & ye slip into it all easily XXXX ♥️ 4mo

JennyM @Cathythoughts thanks Cathy. They‘ve woken up happy, so that‘s always a good start 😊 4mo
BarbaraBB They have been free since November? Almost three months? Wow... 4mo
TrishB Hope it all goes well!‘ 4mo
JennyM @BarbaraBB was the end of November... 9 looong weeks of summer 😬 4mo
JennyM @TrishB thanks Trish. 😘 4mo
Cinfhen Mr 6 is starting first grade!!! How exciting 😍😍😍😍😍 4mo
vivastory Hope everything goes well! 4mo
JennyM @Cinfhen he is, and he toddled off all happy. Thanks @vivastory 😊 4mo
BarbaraBB Nine weeks! Great for the kids, though 😉. Good to hear they were both looking forward to it. Yet another phase 💜 4mo
Cinfhen Wonderful ❣️❤️ 4mo

Shirley | Charlotte Brontë
post image

#imhere at home on a snowy day with a sick kid. 😕
I was inspired by @saresmoore to read the intro to my copy of Shirley. This book has not fared well critically, mostly because it's about society and departs from CB's usual exploration of the interior landscape.
So will we be disappointed disparagers or embrace it as an underappreciated gem? In hopes we will become its champions, the official hashtag...🥁 #shirlitesunite 🙂
@cinfhen @vivastory

LeahBergen 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4mo
saresmoore I love it! Not the sick kiddo part, though. Best wishes for quick healing! 4mo

merelybookish @saresmoore Oh thanks! I'm in that dilemma about whether to take him in for a strep test or just wait and see. 🤷 4mo
merelybookish @LeahBergen Glad you approve! 👍 4mo
SamAnne Am only 25 pages in. I‘m on a Bronte kick. Just finished Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Are you a member of the Goodreads classics group perchance? 4mo
merelybookish @SamAnne No, I'm not very active on GR. This is a casual Litsy buddy read. We are reading Shirley in February and posting out thoughts as we go along. You're welcome to join in. Just tag any spoilers and is the #shirlitesunite hashtag. 🙂 4mo
SamAnne Wonderful! Might join. 4mo
saresmoore Boo! I‘m sorry to hear that. Motherhood dilemmas are intense and never ending. I always hesitate, too, for the sake of whatever potential germs lie in wait for the weakened immune system at the doctor‘s office. 4mo
merelybookish @saresmoore There's no fever so leaning towards waiting. Sometimes you wait and wish you'd gone. Sometimes you go and then feel it was a waste. So it goes! 4mo
Blaire Looking forward to starting. Got all the bronte on my kindle for .99. Hope the sickness passes and you don‘t need to take kiddo to the doctor. 4mo
merelybookish @Blaire Thanks! I think he's okay. Barky coughs just always sound so bad! 4mo
batsy I have the older Penguin edition, too. Is your intro by Andrew and Judith Hook? I'm nervous about this one because of the reviews, as well, but I'm #Charlotte4Life so I think I'll be happy to read it all the same :) Hope your son's feeling better? 4mo
erzascarletbookgasm Hope your son‘s feeling better and there‘s no need for the doctor. I‘ll be reading from Serial Reader, most probably, unless I can get a physical copy soon. 4mo
merelybookish @batsy That's the edition I have. And I'm not too worried. I figure even bad CB will probably be pretty good. Even if the plot is wacko or dull, the power of her phrasing and expression will make up for it. But I am also #charlotte4life. 🙂 (And thanks re: Ned. He was well enough to go to school today.) 4mo
merelybookish @erzascarletbookgasm Thank you! And good to know it's on Serial! 4mo
ephemeralwaltz I'm really sorry but I realized this week that I have a lot of reading to do for work this month and I can't commit to a read as long as Shirley... So I won't be joining all of you in the #buddyread :( I've loved seeing your posts but I'll have to join in another time. So sorry again! Happy reading! Hope you all meet Shirley soon 😂 4mo
merelybookish @ephemeralwaltz No need to apologize! We've all had that happen with our reading! 4mo

Here I Am | Sonia Sanchez, Patti Kim
post image

#MusicalNewYear Day 29: The young boy in this wordless story has just moved to a new place with his family. The art depicts this sense of being uprooted, the chaos, and how everything appears incomprehensible. Even the signs seem like a meaningless jumble of letters. His journey to finally declaring #ImHere or “Here I Am” is deeply moving, credible and masterfully woven. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-ciM

vivastory Wonderful illustrations 4mo
