The Bitter Orange Tree | Jokha Alharthi

A story about Zuhour, her relationship with Bint Aamirs. Story goes from past to present to see how Zuhour will adapt her life in Britain. During the past narrative you will see their cultural roots. The story has many beautiful passages but I was sometimes confused which character was narrating. I found loose beautiful parts without connection. Maybe a re-read will help me to understand it better. 3⭐️

Gissy I still want to read her novel Celestial Bodies.

4th and last book read during August 2022 #20in4 Special Readathon @Andrew65

A close up of the water bottle and vegan snacks that @Wonderwoman89 sent for my #staycationintimeswap package. These two items are really fun! And will be a pleasant part of both outings in real life and time at work.

Thank you @Graciouswarriorprincess for my fabulous #StaycationInTimeSwap box! It was a treat to come home from work to & icoukdn‘t believe all the things you packed into it. I‘m excited about all the books—the two Bridgerton cookbooks from my list & I have been wanting to read The Wisteria Society & now I have it & the next book too! I love the 🍋napkins & coasters to enjoy my many teas & shortbread & snacks & I will look so elegant with the ⬇️

DebinHawaii …fruit scarf & nail stickers too! 😉🤣All the fun goodies from your local libraryfest & the Book Pages are great & the coloring/craft book, deco papers & stamp will be wonderful for journaling. And some of the tea, mini Kind bars & nut mixes didn‘t even make it into the photo. Love the cute key chain too. I will be having a great staycation this weekend for sure! 🌞

Thanks to our tagged hostesses for another great swap too! 🤗

@Avanders Thank you!! I absolutely LOVE my #staycationintimeswap - none of these books were on my radar but as soon as I read the blurbs I was like YES PLEASE!! The candle smells amazing and I‘m super excited for a bath and a cup of coffee (dark roast is my jam). ♥️♥️

EvieBee Nice treasure trove! I‘ve been meaning to read THE BEST OF EVERYTHING for awhile now. 3mo

Avanders Yay I‘m so glad you like everything!! ♥️♥️ I don‘t know why I had such a hard time finding New York things that felt right for the swap… so I focused on self-care vacation for the goodies instead 😉 I hope you didn‘t mind! I actually did find one really cool thing that I really wanted to send, but it wasn‘t going to make it in time… if you don‘t mind, I‘d still like to have it sent directly from Etsy to you… cool? ☺️ 3mo
mcipher @Avanders Self care is my fave so I‘m not mad about it! You totally don‘t have to send anything else, it was perfect! 3mo
