wanderinglynn Love your pineapple mug! 🍍 2mo
PatriciaU One of my favorites of the year so far! 2mo
Linsy @PatriciaU Ditto! It's one of those I'm not sure I would have picked up on my own, so I'm so glad Jenny Lawson picked it for the book club! Did you watch her author event? So good!!! 2mo
PatriciaU @Linsy I did. Very interesting. I‘ve been enjoying the books Jenny selects altho I‘ve been having a hard time getting thru Kaikeyi. 2mo

I adored the main character of this book! Molly was such a delight, in the midst of quite a stressful mystery. Loved it! 🛎

I finished this one in a tiny mountain airbnb with the cutest outhouse, so I had to share!

Received this gorgeous #FantasticStrangelings book, set in Trinidad, which is where my mom was from - so excited to read this! ♥️

Also picked up this cozy to pass some time 🔪📚☕️

And look at that gorgeous weather for my day off tomorrow! #pluviophile

And buggy has recently gotten obsessed w those Moomin books… extra cute bc we have a lot of the older-reader books from when Mark was a kid. 🥰🥰

BethM Yay for weather! We got 60 today! With snow coming Wednesday 😂 I‘ve never heard of Moomin. 3mo
Avanders @BethM ha we had the same thing — snow last night and this morning! But then some rain too so it‘s basically all gone already 😜 Moomin is so cute! I‘d never heard of it either, but apparently Mark‘s dad found the older kid version when Mark was younger… he had a lot of overseas contacts and seemed to hear of new, fun things that way ☺️ The picture books are so cute. 3mo

My #BOTM #BookoftheMonth for February (A River Enchanted); the #FantasticStrangelings selection on its way as we “speak” (Circus of Wonders); and the result of a no-reason-but-stress-relief gift card from my sister (the other 2, including the tagged, which I‘ve had my eye on since Jenny Lawson read it 😜).

Also, I know #sss people are waiting for matches..they‘re all done, I just got stuck trying to figure out a new mail merge program… soon…😘😘

BethM The covers of all these mean I‘m going to need to look them up later. 5mo
Avanders @BethM I know this set makes me so happy to keep seeing 😁🤩 4mo

Mrs March | Virginia Feito

Mehso-so

Wow, OK. This was a strange one. Are unreliable narrators your jam? Then you‘ll love this.

Mrs March is a strange character. I was most unsettled by the way she thinks of herself as Mrs March, even when flashing back to herself as a little kid! As if that‘s always been her identity.

Definitely not a book I‘d have chosen on my own, and not a preferred genre for me, but I think we‘ll done for what it is!

EJG31 I'm listening to the audiobook and I agree. I'm not sure I'm going to finish it and I'm more than half way. Honestly I am still not sure what's going on, it's confusing too. 5mo
Hooked_on_books I was not a fan of this at all. It went completely off the rails for me when she flashed back to being 2 years old and was still “Mrs March.” 🙄 No. 5mo
Soubhiville @Hooked_on_books isn‘t it weird? I didn‘t totally hate it, but I definitely didn‘t enjoy it. Strangest book I‘ve read in some time. 5mo

Finished the tagged… very disappointed. I‘ve left a short spoilerish review on goodreads, for those who‘ve read it & want to know why 😕

Started Wintering. The 1st chapt was like listening to someone describe one of my greatest nightmares. I‘m glad I pushed through, of course. I‘m about 10% in & … I feel like I *need* this book right now

Also rec‘d #LMPBC #groupw book last night - Thank you Katie! ♥️

And rec‘d #fantasticstrangelings Jan book 🥳

BookHoarder32 Love the pillow! 6mo
blondie I dnf‘d Leave the World Behind. This makes me feel better about doing so. 6mo
Avanders @BookHoarder32 thanks 😁 One of my favorite gifts from an old boss! @blondie I know some people love it but… I think if you don‘t like it from the beginning, it‘s unlikely you will… 6mo

I really enjoyed the Bookish First Bingo card, it did a good job of stretching me to find new authors. I'm not done with the tagged book yet, but I've been loving it!!! This is my first time reading Stephen Graham Jones, but I am definitely coming back for more! Can't wait to get to My Heart Is A Chainsaw, especially since it was almost a pick for #fantasticstrangelings and I usually love Jenny's picks. 🕸️👻🎃

Mexican Gothic | Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I LOVED this book! It was full of everything Gothic that I love — creepy house, freaky wallpaper, unexplained happenings — and some reveals later on that I was not expecting. Would definitely recommend! I love how Garcia took the ubiquitous English Gothic novel and twisted it into her own creation. And I loved all the mushroom stuff! 🍄

KristiAhlers I‘m glad you enjoyed this one. I personally wasn‘t a fan but I love hearing what others take away from books I‘ve read. 8mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks It‘s on my shelf! 🖤🖤🖤 8mo
