I‘m a longtime fan, so it‘s no surprise I enjoyed this. Wilson does a great job maintaining the feel of the poetry using accessible language. I recommend this edition - and the 91 pages of introductory material is pretty awesome, too.

This was the book I needed right now. A beautiful story of love, loss, ghosts, memory, grief and family. I couldn‘t put it down. 5⭐️

One of many #botm titles languishing unread on my shelves & I‘m sad I didn‘t pick this one up sooner. The bookmark with the note by Katie Cotugno says, “Stretch out someplace green & lose yourself in the luminous, haunted world of A Million June‘s — a deeply human story with a magical twist.” Perfect description ❤️

MeganAnn This was also a #roll100 book for number 24 @PuddleJumper and my #doublespin @TheAromaofBooks 16h
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 15h

The Old Man & the Sea | Ernest Hemingway

Somehow I've never read this classic, despite it being short and despite it being on my shelves for over a decade, since my husband owned this copy when we got married haha I'm not sure how Hemingway managed to make me completely engrossed in a story about an old man catching a fish, but he did - I could barely put this one down! The ending did make me rather mad, though, but most classics do haha

OutAndAbout I read this in high school and only remember it as boring. Sounds like it might be worth a reread? 21h
PuddleJumper That's great! 21h

TheAromaofBooks @OutAndAbout - I can definitely see this as a book that I wouldn't have appreciated in high school, because it is, objectively, rather boring haha But as an adult I was a lot more interested in the Old Man's struggles, contemplations on aging and loneliness, and the Boy's genuine love and compassion for the Old Man. I think some authors just can't be truly appreciated by teens, and Hemingway may be one of them. 21h
OutAndAbout @TheAromaofBooks sold. It‘s going on this years TBR. 20h
Roary47 This was always my favorite story in school. We read it two different times. I‘m glad you had the opportunity to check it off. 💛 18h
Clwojick A old favourite! ❤️ 5h

Mehso-so

3✨Retired police officer Archer is forced to retire because his wife shot his shooting hand right before she killed herself. While he tired to stop her he is riddled with guilt that she was attacked by The Lock Rapist. He wasn‘t able to catch him and he continues to terrorize. That‘s when Resa comes in to learn how to protect herself when she brought herself on the rapist radar. Dominio is glad she can get more cuddles now. #roll100 @PuddleJumper

Boo-yah!! I got a bingo!!! Granted, three of the books in that row are middle-grade books, but my Covid brain needed some light reading. 😅 I also managed to read both my #BookSpin, #DoubleSpin AND both of my #Roll100 choices, so I‘m feeling rather accomplished. Starting The Wine of Violence today and still whittling away at the Ina May book. We‘ll see if I can pull a second bingo off, but I‘m not holding my breath. 😜

PuddleJumper That's amazing! 2d
Kdgordon88 Well done! 🙌🏼 2d
Ruthiella Congratulations! 👍 2d

I originally wanted to read this book after watching the Netflix show, but quickly learned they‘re almost nothing alike. Still, it was a fascinating and often times humorous glimpse of the perceived lives of numerous peoples. Taking most of it with a large grain of salt (Polo is not the most trustworthy narrator) I was grateful for the slew of footnotes that explained/corrected his stories.
One of my #Roll100 books for January (number 24).

PuddleJumper Wahoo! 3d

Got a Barnes and noble gift card for Christmas and finally spent it! The Firefly book is my other #Roll100 book and The Fragments was actually a #NewYearWhoDis book from @BookNAround 2 years ago!

#newbooks #bookhaul

BookNAround Hope you enjoy it. 😀 3d
