Angela's Ashes: A Memoir | Frank McCourt

#Riotgrams #Day19 #IReadThisTooYoung

While the content of this book was certainly beyond my maturity level at age 11 when I first read it, the power of the McCourt‘s writing has stayed with me for nearly two decades. This is the actual book my older brother gave me back then, I even wrote my name inside the front cover in my 5th grade cursive! I‘m guessing he hadn‘t read the book himself...

After much deliberation, I have decided that this will be my next read. It‘s been chillin‘ on my shelf for months, just waiting for it‘s time to shine...

Evening Class | Maeve Binchy
post image

It‘s the 19th which means it‘s time for the next #MaeveBinchyRead, which this time will be Evening Class. I suggest we read one chapter a day and discuss that chapter the following day. These are the dates for the discussions. #EveningClass

Tove_Reads This is the perfect book to read in the summer! Somehow I can‘t put it down! Even though it‘s once again written from the point of view of several people the story actually moves forward as a whole. 3h
JacqMac Oh, I forgot what day it is. And my kids are still in school. I‘m not supposed to forget already. Lol I‘m starting it now. :) 3h

Andrew65 @Tove_Reads 😂 There‘s me still sourcing Evening Class and you‘re already thinking of the next one. 11h
Tove_Reads @andrew65 I always have to do this in advance to make sure I‘ll get a copy. 2h
Tove_Reads And it was a good thing too! There is one copy, and someone has it until July 10. 2h

@Jerdencon @Shakespearience @RavenLovelyReads These are the books I was thinking of for #lmpbc. If anyone has preferences let me know, otherwise I'll choose one at random 😊.

Shakespearience I haven‘t read Their Eyes Were Watching God since high school and have always wanted to read again...otherwise Future Home sounds intriguing 🤔 But also cue the usual “I am game for whatever” 2d
RavenLovelyReads Their eyes were watching God- but I‘ll read anything:) 2d
Jerdencon I've read Tana French and their eyes were watching God (both really good) - I'm up for anything too! 2d

The Misremembered Man | Christina McKenna

Unlike other stories I've read, this focuses mostly on two characters who are unknowingly and deeply connected. They come together in a surprise twist at the end, just as one of them desperately needs it.

I am #obssessedwith Tana French AND having my series in the same edition, size & format. You can imagine how I cringe every time I look at these.

Summer at the Garden Cafe: A Novel | Felicity Hayes-McCoy

This is the second book in the Finfarrin series, and I enjoyed learning more about Hanna, Jazz, and the other characters. I'm looking forward to the conclusion of the #seriesread which looks like a fun Christmas book. Finfarrin is a fictional place but may be based on the Dingle peninsula where the author has a home. In any case, it's (relatively) far from Dublin #wherethestreetshavenoname except that it's right there on the wall. #wanderingjune

Crazeedi I liked the first one more than the second, but both were pleasurable books 4d

#PoetryMatters #Portal @TheSpineView

Memory of My Father , by Patrick Kavanagh.

Every old man I see
Reminds me of my father
When he had fallen in love with death
One time when sheaves were gathered

(& the last verse .....)
Every old man I see
In October- coloured weather
Seems to say to me :
“ I was once your father “

batsy That's kind of sad and beautiful ❤️ 5d
