#FierceFeb #NoOrdinaryLove Catching up with yesterday's prompt as a cold has me not feeling so fierce.? Probably not quite what the prompt was going for but I can't resist... My love of soup and for the "Love Soup" cookbook is no ordinary love. ?❤️ Anna Thomas is my soup guru & this book my soup 'bible' -both for recipes & creative inspiration. Shown are only a handful of soups I have made from it & all were unique & delicious.?#cookbooklove ❤️

MinDea I just made your avogolemon (or however you spell that) recipe tonight! So yummy!!!!! 2y

batsy Love this! Your soups are definitely extraordinary 🍲💙 2y
Chrissyreadit Ahhhhh! I love soup. Am vegan but bet I could do a lot with this book. Must get book!!!!!!!! 2y
Centique Soup may be my truest love too. If we include Irish Stew as a soup than yes, definitely. 😍I‘m stacking this! 2y
DebinHawaii @MinDea Yay! I love that soup! 2y
DebinHawaii @Cinfhen @batsy Aww... thank you my friends! 🤗❤️🍲 (edited) 2y
DebinHawaii @MinDea @Centique It's a great little book & if (God forbid!) 😱I was forced to go down to 10 cookbooks, it would make the cut! 😆And @Chrissyreadit many of the soups are already vegan but the others can be easily veganized. 2y
Chrissyreadit @DebinHawaii it‘s in my wishlist!!!! 2y
Annl I need that book! 2y

Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II‘s love and relationship was certainly #noordinarylove Strange dynamics and turns of events and the very definition of tumultuous #FierceFeb

CarolynM Great choice! Have you seen The Lion in Winter? 2y
Cinfhen Those royals really have the lock on #NoOrdinaryLove 💗😊👍🏻 2y
batsy Things are always just a little bit extraordinary where the royals are concerned... 👑😁 2y

TrishB Love the pair of them ❤️ @CarolynM Love The Lion in Winter she is Eleanor! @Andrew65 not a fan of Weir though. 2y
Andrew65 @TrishB Think this is the only one of Weir‘s books I have read and based on that think others do historical fiction. Good read but not quality of Sharon Penman, Elizabeth Chadwick or Conn Iggulden. 2y
Andrew65 @CarolynM Not Read the Lion in Winter Carolyn, I will have to check it out. Thanks for the suggestion. 2y
Andrew65 @Cinfhen @batsy Too true, and not just in the past if you look at the Charles and Diana story. 2y
CarolynM Sorry, should have been clearer. It's a movie - Katherine Hepburn and Peter O'Toole - it's great. 2y
Andrew65 @CarolynM Ah, right. Will check on this. 2y

One of my absolute favourite books- one of the protagonists is a punk librarian, need I say anymore?! 😄😍 This books raises questions about the nature of love. It made me think about choice and free will and what it means to be chosen by someone else. And it‘s certainly #NoOrdinaryLove when one of the lovers in question is hurtled repeatedly through time. It‘s been a while and now I must re-read this!

batsy You had me at punk librarian! 😀 I definitely need to check it out. 2y
Centique This is one of my all time favourites. I wish Audrey Niffenegger would write some more novels! (edited) 2y
Cinfhen This book has been on my TBR for ages❣️❣️❣️I can't seem to find an inexpensive copy....I keep looking 🤞🏼 2y

JennAndrew @Cinfhen this one is ex-library stock, so was very cheap. I don‘t own that many books these days- I work in a library and borrow most and buy only when it‘s something very special. At least, that was true until I joined Litsy- I‘ve spent what I‘d usually spend in 6 months in the 3-4 weeks since joining! 😂 No regrets! 2y
JennAndrew @Centique yes! I have two illustrated books of hers- The Three Incestuous Sisters and The Night Bookmobile- from the library to read but haven‘t gotten around to them yet because I‘m much more of a novel reader. This one is just so good, I‘m desperate for more! 2y
JennAndrew @batsy I‘d 100% recommend it! So cool 👌🏻 2y
Cinfhen Truth @JennAndrew I've tripled my book budget since joining Litsy 💸💸😬🙄 2y
Centique @Cinfhen I‘m going to keep an eye out over here for one for you. 😜 2y
Centique @JennAndrew Have you read Her Fearful Symmetry? Way creepier than this one! Night Bookmobile is creepy too but cool 👌 2y
Cinfhen Awww, thanks so much @Centique 😘 2y
JennAndrew @Centique I have. I didn‘t enjoy it quite as much as this one, but I did love it. It‘s definitely put Highgate Cemetery even higher on my list of places to visit next time I‘m in London! 😄 2y

“Would you be interested in coming to my house to sleep with me?”
An inviting proposal but there‘s no earth-shaking sexual satisfaction in this novel but a day-to-day happiness kind of love story. A story about growing old with grace. Addie and Louise are two widowers who find solace in each other in their twilight years. A quietly beautiful novel.
