Meet Cute | Helena Hunting
post image

Oh yeah, I am behind again this week.😬Just trying to survive until the 3-day weekend. Pardon me, I‘m going to cheat & do 2 prompts to catch up. The male lead in this romance is a #Star on the heroine‘s favorite tv series when they meet cute at college. When she thinks he wronged her & made her GPA suffer & they meet again years later, she isn‘t too willing to forgive him & feels she doesn‘t want to give him #AllOfMyHeart...at first.💛

squirrelbrain Well done on the #doubledip ! Sorry for stealing your hashtag @Cinfhen ! 🤣 2mo

The Map of Salt and Stars: A Novel | Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar
post image

Not read but found this fitting for #ayupaugust #star and #LetsTravelAugust

The novel tells the story of a family on their journey from their home in #Syria to safety in another country, through the eyes of Nour, the youngest daughter. The story moves between two narratives - an account of a Syrian refugee and a medieval tale of a mapmaker‘s assistant.

squirrelbrain Not more shopping! Now, if it‘s shopping for books that‘s a different story.... 😁 2mo
TrishB @Cinfhen @squirrelbrain @Cathythoughts no books!! Today‘s shopping was underwear, socks , pjs and fairy lights. Who knew all that had to be brought for uni, because there‘s none of those in the house! 2mo
Oryx Can't go to uni without fairy lights 😁 2mo

Hilola Bigtree was a star alligator wrestler and the biggest draw for the gator island theme park of the title. But her death from cancer left the novel's 14-year-old protagonist Ava without a mother and the family's park in danger of bankruptcy. I'm only 77 pages in, but loving this one so far. A little uneasy about the somewhat low Litsy & Goodreads ratings though- hope it doesn't lose steam as it goes 🤞

Cathythoughts Sounds good. And great pic 👍🏻 2mo
saresmoore Love the photo, hated the book. I can‘t remember why, exactly, but it felt sort of contrived and gratuitous to me. Or maybe I was just resentful, being a Floridian. 🙃 2mo

Cinfhen This book is odd, but wonderful all the same! I‘m glad you‘re enjoying 😊great pic 2mo
Billypar @Cathythoughts @saresmoore @Cinfhen Thanks- the photo is courtesy of my fiancee/commuting companion/personal paparazzi 📸😎 2mo
Billypar @saresmoore Ah, good to know- I think I'm through enough that I know I won't hate it, but it could still turn south, and I get what you mean about how it could be contrived in some ways. I do like a good polarizing book! 2mo
squirrelbrain Ooh personal paparazzi makes you sound soooo important! Great pic though! 2mo
saresmoore I do, too! Actually, how much you‘re enjoying it makes me want to give it another go. 😂 It‘s been a long time since I read it. 2mo
Billypar @squirrelbrain Ha- I know, makes me feel special. 2mo
Billypar @saresmoore I reread so rarely that I've never given a book I didn't like a 2nd chance, but I'd like to try that one day. One reading goal among so many though 😬 2mo
LeahBergen @saresmoore I didn‘t like it either. 🤫 2mo

Dedication | Emma McLaughlin, Nicola Kraus

I bailed on this one years ago, just because I didn‘t have time to read it. Maybe I‘ll get back to it one of these days, but I do remember that I didn‘t think it was strong as The Nanny Diaries...

If I remember correctly, here‘s the gist: famous singer comes back to his hometown, and all is excited to see him, except his ex-girlfriend, his hometown love who was the inspiration behind some of his songs. #star #ayupaugust

Cinfhen Sounds like it would make a good beach read 🏖 2mo
squirrelbrain I‘ve read The Nanny Diaries but not this one.... 2mo

I could have done celebrity #star crushes, but that would have involved #TheChase again, so I decided against it.

Chose this book because the lady inset taught me them, and she's a #star to me.

#ayupaugust @Cinfhen @squirrelbrain

Cinfhen That‘s a lovely dedication 💕🌟🙌🏻 2mo
squirrelbrain Aww that‘s so lovely! ❤️ 2mo
