I don‘t post my kids‘ pics often these days... But this needs shared. Juliet is 5 1/2, and she‘s *suddenly* a reader. About a month ago she was still struggling to sound out simple words. But it clicked in the last 2 weeks. All weekend I‘ve been finding her ensconced in comfy places with a stack of level 1 & 2 readers. 😍😍

And she‘s suddenly noticing how much “Juliet” shows up in songs/stories, and is pretty excited to be “famous”! 😂

So impressed that this was her debut novel, loved seeing the beautiful things I‘ve come to treasure in her writing: singular magical realism, unforgettable characters, powerful voice of inclusion. Lace & Cluck‘s story was so moving, & felt real even in its surrealities. Also really appreciate the note at the end, on why “gypsy/gypped” are slurs & shouldn‘t be used or commodified for kitsch. Honestly? My favorite of hers, & a rare but earned 5/5 ⭐️

He and Lace were sewn of similar fabric, the raw edges of their families‘ cloth.

IT IS VERY UNFAIR THAT I ONLY GET HALF HOUR FOR LUNCH AND HAVE TO GO BACK TO WORK AND CANNOT KEEP READING ALL AFTERNOON 😩😩😩

My parents got me three books for my birthday from a list of ten I‘d provided, and this was one of them and I was so happy to see it! I‘ve read her other three books but not her debut, and I adore her writing so much that I just had to pick this one up next! #nowreading

MrBook Thank you for this! I‘ve added it and look forward to reading this one and her other works! 🤗 1mo

#BFCR2 Week 2 check- in @wanderinglynn @Caterina
I'm on vacation right now but still managed to get in a few books and workouts! But that's why I gave myself overall goals this round instead of weekly. I don't get home until Tuesday and I'll really need to buckle down to burn off some vacation pounds 😂

Books: 9 of 20

Workouts: 8 of 24

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 A fantastic week, especially since you were on vacay! 🎉 2mo
BarbaraJean Same here with needing to buckle down after vacation! We were visiting my in-laws, and my mother-in-law loves to feed us! I don‘t even want to know how much fat & carbs and sugar I consumed this week!! 2mo
kindergartenkat @BarbaraJean Ya I am visiting my hometown so I always eat all my favorite home foods when I I! It's been a delicious trip! 2mo
