• Few chapters in and it's pretty good; Tear-jerker read for Feb 2020 #ReadWithMrBook #challenge. Won't finish by the end of the month but that's all part of the plan (wink wink -- there's no plan, folks) •

February tends to be a month that focuses on love, namely the romantic kind, so I thought I‘d give you some book recommendations that exemplify other types of love: https://youtu.be/lZ0nLusvFN4

EadieB @Butterflyamore Of the books you mentioned, I have read; Art of Racing in the Rain, Whisper Man and imaginary Friend. I‘m interested in reading A Monster Calls. An example of father/son love would be Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafron, love between two friends - The Air You Breathe by Frances dePontes Peebles. Between 2 brothers - The Unwilling by John Hart and between a dog and his 11 year old owner - Woof by Spencer Quinn. 6d
Butterflyamore @EadieB I hope that you enjoy A Monster Calls, if/when you read it. I haven‘t read any of those books, although I do have The Unwilling on my possible preorder list, based on your previous recommendation. I need to actually read one of his books soon so I can know for sure how I feel about him as an author! 6d

EadieB @Butterflyamore John Hart is an excellent author as I have read many reviews from his books. I have an audio of Iron House by him and can‘t wait to listen to it! I‘ll probably read A Monster Calls very soon too! You should read The Shadow of the Wind that is one of my all time favorite books! 5d
Butterflyamore @EadieB I added it to my list! 5d

Sometimes I find hidden treasures like this for sale deep in the back of the Public Library. This is better than Where‘s Waldo! And I adore Where‘s Waldo! #FindMomo #Dog #precious

An adorable story about how a dog who can make friends can be your best teacher. Everyone has a hole inside them from loss & when Opal decides to take in Winn-Dixie, she realizes that loss looks different on everyone. #BBRC #MGME @LibrarianRyan
Not to mention this is the THIRD book taken off the teetering #MountTBR!!! 👍

LibrarianRyan Ahhhhhhh. Glad you liked it. 2w
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan I remember the movie coming out but the book hasn't really been on my radar long. My son read a blurb in class last year & I snagged my own copy at the book fair! 😁 2w

My scruffy pup needs a haircut.

Excited (and nervous) for this one! I don‘t want to hate it.

It was readable... no real twists and turns. It wasn‘t bad, pretty straight forward.

Seattle Washington - Enzo is different from other dogs. He has acquired a nearly human soul by listening to the words of his master, Denny Swift, a race car driver. He helps Denny through the death of his wife, Eve, & custody battle over his daughter, Zoe. While dying, Enzo, knows he will return as a man. This is a heart-wrenching, funny & uplifting story of family, love, loyalty & hope. I really enjoyed listening to the audio & recommend it.

Andrew65 Sounds great! 😊 3w

AmyG I weeped when I read this. Such a lovely book. 3w
EadieB @AmyG It is very sad in parts! 3w
Scochrane26 The only audiobook that‘s made me cry, in Kroger parking lot. I would have cried more if I had read print version. 3w
BethM I read this in print. I cried so violently on the couch that my husband was concerned. I then threw myself on our dog. 3w
erzascarletbookgasm I have this on my tbr. I was thinking to read this or The Travelling Cat Chronicles for the same prompt. 😊 3w
JaneyWaneyB I love this book it broke my heart in so many ways but also stole it. We don't deserve dogs 😭😍 tempted to watch the film but unsure 3w

Andrew65 Still need to choose a #tearjerker. 3w
EadieB @Andrew65 Listening to The Art of Racing in the Rain for tearjerker and it's very good. 3w
gradcat @EadieB You go, Eadie! That‘s a lot of books!! I, too, have to choose a tearjerker, like @Andrew65 ... I‘ve yet to decide. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 3w
Andrew65 @EadieB Not heard of that one, will do some research. Also am I brave enough to do 3w
Andrew65 @gradcat If not Read it I recommend this book, had me in ugly tears! 3w
Andrew65 Also wondered about some more Kristin Hannah as the Buddy Read you led for The Great Alone had me in tears! 3w
EadieB @Andrew65 Me Before You is a very tearful read at the end. You will need to be brave to read it. 3w
EadieB @Andrew65 This is another tearjerker by Kristin Hannah. 3w
EadieB @Andrew65 My review of another tearjerker:
This book is a very sad and emotional read but an amazing story. The last part of the book had me in tears. I have never cried so hard as when I was reading this book. Hannah being able to evoke such emotions is a sign of her excellent writing skills. If you need a good cry then read this book. Do not read if you are prone to depression.
Andrew65 @EadieB Thanks, just checked and my library has a copy. 😊👍 (edited) 3w
EadieB @Andrew65 Great! That's a good one for tearjerker! 3w
Andrew65 @EadieB Will Check Night Road our too, thanks fir the recommendations. 3w
EadieB @Andrew65 Between the two, I would pick Night Road. I gave Winter Garden 4 stars but Night Road got 5 stars. (edited) 3w
Andrew65 @EadieB Definitely sounds the way to go. 😊 I really enjoyed that Buddy Read. (edited) 3w
EadieB @Andrew65 It was a good one! I enjoyed it too! 3w
gradcat @EadieB & @andrew65 Thanks for the tips...you guys are so good at this and I love you for it! ❤️ 3w

Excuse me while I brag on my first grade son. Reading is hard for him, but today he received an award for reading 25 points. That is 50 books, and I have him read each book at least three times. I‘ve tagged the Biscuit series. He read and loved the whole series.

Butterfinger Congratulations!!!! 3w
wanderinglynn That‘s awesome! Congrats! 🎉👏🏻🥳 3w
tpixie Congrats!!! 🐶🐶🐶 All 4 of my kids have dyslexia. It was so hard watching them struggle, since they loved stories, were bright, and knew they were falling behind others. ( not that your child does) Great job re- reading the books with him, so he can master them!! 3w
jewright @tpixie My son has autism. He is smart, but he had a speech delay that required lots of speech therapy. Reading seems to be giving him similar trouble. I know he will catch up, but he has to work really hard. He has always loved when I read to him, and he‘s starting to enjoy it more, but reading himself is still hard work for him. 3w
tpixie @jewright good luck! Hope he persevere! My kids did alphabet phonics tutoring which really helped. It help them learn the rules of language since looking at the words they could not intuitively figure out how to pronounce it. Like I before E except after C & if 2 vowels go a walking, the first one does the talking It‘s a multi sensory approach 3w
