Sense and Sensibility | Jane Austen
post image

I am *in love* with this vintage Folio set of Austen's compete works- a gift from my thoughtful husband. Kicking off a full re-read with Sense and Sensibility, my sentimental favorite forever. #PemberLittens #CurrentlyReading

LeahBergen These are my absolute favourite editions of Austen (they have the best woodcut illustrations). I have the same ones in burgundy (the ones they released after your set). 3d
Andrea313 @LeahBergen Amazing! The woodcuts are so wonderful, definitely a highlight of these editions. Have you posted pics of your burgundy collection? Sounds swoon-worthy! 3d

#bookreport & #weeklyforecast
#finished: finished 2 books this week; wasn't wowed by them, but they were fairly easy to complete.

#currentlyreading: All the Light is for a book club meeting; the Alice Munro is a #slowbutsteady (didn't read from it this week); The Music of Bees is for a previous book club meeting and it shouldn't take a lot of time to complete it.

melissajayne #upcomingreads: The Maid is for another book club meeting this week, but since I own my copy and have read it before, I don't foresee it taking me too long to read. The Essex Serpent is a restart for me and I hope to get to it this week. Midnight Library is for a book club meeting later in the month and I don't think it will take me long to read it, as I have quite a bit of time to read it and this will be the fourth time I have read it. 4d
melissajayne Happy reading 😊 📚 4d

Finished These Precious Days and figured I'd stay on the Patchett bandwagon with another of her works that's been languishing on my TBR list. I'm into it so far- Ann and Lucy's relationship reminds me so much of the intense friendships of my 20s, but of course their own unique experiences make the book even more compelling. #CurrentlyReading

#finished: Nothing so far, but I am almost done with The Awakening.

#currentlyreading: The Awakening should be completed fairly soon; Alice Munro's Best is a #slowbutsteady and I am hoping to work and complete The Music of Bees

#upcomingreads: Need to start All the Light and The Maid for book clubs about a week from now; The Essex Serpent is a restart

Happy reading 📚❤️

Rainy day means driving to pick up the kids rather than walking. Which means I can fit in a few pages waiting for the bell!

These Precious Days | Ann Patchett
post image

Sunday night with blooming peonies and a new book, rain pouring down, a bellini in hand, and another day off tomorrow. Vibes are immaculate. Books of essays aren't always my jam, but a good friend and reading buddy recommended this one, so here we go! #CurrentlyReading #BooksAndBlooms

LeahBergen I love peonies! 3w
Andrea313 @LeahBergen Same! These ones are so fragrant, I keep wandering by just to get a bit of the scent. Fresh flowers are probably my favorite small luxury. 3w
GinaKButler I loved this book! 3w

Burn: A novel | Peter Heller
post image

#currentlyreading via NetGalley and Knopf. Two long-time best friends emerge from an off-grid hunting trip in the woods to find that Some Big Thing has happened. They‘re not able to navigate roads or bridges. No cellphone service. No people, animals, cars anywhere. I can FEEL their dread and fear because at the halfway point, I still don‘t know what happened either.

It‘s riveting. I feel a delicious tension right alongside these characters.
