Eye in the Sky | Philip K. Dick
post image

💙 Today I found this little gem in a new-to-me bookstore in Pahrump, Nevada. I‘m on a road trip for my upcoming 20th wedding anniversary!
🌞 Anyway, I was thinking I didn‘t have anything with me for #BrighterThanTheSun & just realized this giant Eyeball on the cover is perfect! 👁
Any other Philip K. Dick fans?

I went with the sun part of this prompt. #BrighterThanTheSun #SongsofSummer

Half of a Yellow Sun | Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
post image

Epic, ambitious, and triumphantly realized, this is a remarkable novel about moral responsibility, about the end of colonialism, about ethnic allegiances, about class and race—and the ways in which love can complicate them. Adichie brilliantly evokes the promise and the disappointments that marked this time and place, bringing us a powerful, dramatic, and intensely emotional pictures of modern Africa.

Stephjotsdown I don't know how you will find Hemingway's book. It was a waste of time for me. I DNF it 1mo

OriginalCyn620 @Stephjotsdown I know I read a Hemingway in high school but honestly don‘t remember which one! It could be this one for all I know! But good for you for DNFing...it took me a while to realize that that‘s perfectly acceptable. 1mo

Brighter Than the Sun | Julia Quinn
post image

#songsofsummer @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620 #brighterthanthesun Julia Quinn is one of my favourite Regency Romance authors. I like that this book is paired with her other novel Everything and the Moon.

OriginalCyn620 I‘ve never read her but I‘ve stacked this one! 1mo
StayCurious She writes really sweet, funny stories. They‘re even adapting her Bridgerton series for Netflix. 1mo

These challenges have me finding things in my tbr I‘d forgotten about. This is about the 1918 flu epidemic. Maybe I can squeeze this in soon?

Junonia | Kevin Henkes

#SongsOfSummer Day 17: Fays‘ review: “Alice loved being in Sanibel Island (where it is #BrighterThanTheSun) not only for the shells, but also for the people she‘d be spending her birthday with. Junonia is more than just the beautiful description of the beach. It is a story about growing up and finding oneself. It is a story of every ten-year-old. It is a story of you and me.” Her review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-4Vs

OriginalCyn620 Love that cover! ❤️ 1mo
