Dinner tonight was a “colors of autumn” smorgasbord I threw together. My husband looked at it and said “That actually looks good.” 🙄 Normally I just toss stuff on the tray with no consideration for aesthetics.

Im picking this book back up after months of avoiding it. Maybe it‘ll work this go-round.

Tamra Yum!! 😍 4d
LeslieO That looks yummy. But my husband would say nice appetizer, what‘s for dinner! 4d
Kimberlone I love a fancy snacking board! 4d
BookNAround @LeslieO I don‘t cook dinner on Sunday. I figure if he wants more than this, he can fix it himself. LOL! 4d
sarah-bear That looks so good!🤤 4d

Didn‘t get as much reading done this month as I‘d hoped. I got a new position in my company and a lot of days I was just DONE with mental tasks when the work day was over. Tagged book was my #doublespin for September.

In the final days of the Việt Nam War, Hằng takes her little brother, Linh, to the airport, determined to find a way to safety in America. In a split second, Linh is ripped from her arms--and Hằng is left behind in the war-torn country. Six years later she arrives in Amarillo in search of Linh. That‘s where Hằng and LeeRoy, a wannabe cowboy, cross paths. Adorably cute YA novel.

Texreader Great review! I liked this very original story and especially the descriptions around Amarillo, Texas, where I flew to quite a bit for work some years ago. 2w
suvata @Texreader Two of my kids live in Austin and one in D/FW. So I, too, really enjoyed the Texas atmosphere. 2w

Very good and completely understand why it won a Pulitzer, but I found it hard to focus on. I think that‘s more about me and having a lot of stuff going on though. Need to stick to some lighter reads for a while.

This is the lovely view from my hotel room in Madrid, where I got to spend last weekend! 🇪🇸

BarbaraBB I love Madrid! Enjoy 🇪🇸 2w
cariashley @BarbaraBB such a fantastic city, I wish I had more than a few nights there! It was a (very) quick hop across the pond for my best friend‘s birthday (a big one) ☺️ 2w
BarbaraBB Nice! 2w

A great cast of characters. I found myself deeply moved multiple times throughout the book. Would reccomend!
