The Circle | Dave Eggers

Saw this pop up a ton so I got it on audiobook from the library. It went quickly! Really enjoyed the book, not sure I‘d enjoy is the right word, but definitely powerful and eye opening.

Walking into the Apple Store when you‘re 75% down with the book is downright disturbing!!

Going to use this for the #Booked2019 #booktomovie prompt

Where is my mind

Day 21 of #MayMovieMagic with #WhereIsMyMind
@Rohit-sawant @Cinfhen #BookToMovie

Update: I snapped this pic and posted and then realized I blew it, the book should be Still Alice. But then realized, well crap #WhereIsMyMind!

Cinfhen Hahahahaha😂funny, how that happens 1d
marleed I was about to snap a new pic and then had to laugh that the original was kind of fitting - and perhaps a little disconcerting. 1d
rohit-sawant 😆 It is keeping with the theme. Also, wasn't aware of this one, it sounds like a moving read. 1d
marleed @rohit-sawant I thrifted it a while back thinking it was Still Alice. Litsy reviews (as I noticed this morning) like it so now I must read! 1d

So real life has gotten in the way of my reading. Ergh 😤 and I have 6 books that are within 100 pages of finishing... 😫. But I finally finished one! This was a great sequel to ThebHunger Games, and I can‘t wait to get to the final book in the trilogy to find out what Gale meant by that final statement. Great narration by Carolyn McCormick

Ben was kidnapped. For Beth this is #WhenTheLeveeBreaks

Cinfhen I remember the film 😢😢😢 3d
Cinfhen Is it still raining by you??? More homework to do 😉 3d
marleed @Cinfhen Michelle Phifer was more likable in the film than Beth in the book. I was thinking this would have been a good response to a question earlier this week about unlivable protagonists! ... Rain reprieve so I better get some miles for the CFN. Good thing I have tomorrow‘s pick ready! 3d

So stay there
'Cause I'll be coming over
And while our blood's still young
It's so young, it runs
And won't stop 'til it's over

Cinfhen I really liked this film 🎞 ❤️ 1w
marleed @Cinfhen Me too! In a recent move I donated all but a small stack of DVD‘s. But when I‘m out there in the wild, I can‘t resist saving a book adapted to film. 1w

Angela's Ashes: A Memoir | Frank McCourt

We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun, where the hot springs flow
The hammer of the gods
W'ell drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde, and sing and cry
Valhalla, I am coming!

marleed @baes @cinfhen. There‘s books I don‘t remember reading, books I have to reread the synopsis to recall, and books that stay with me forever. This was the later for me! 1w
