This is by the author who wrote one of my favorite running books, Born To Run. You‘re going to look at this title and cover and think, really? A true story about a donkey with the heart of a hero? PASS. But I‘m here for Sherman‘s transformation/second chance/underdog story. #heartwarming

Sace I don't know. Hero donkey sounds good. 😁 3mo
Leftcoastzen I love the cat cluster!😻 3mo
Kappadeemom I think I saw something about this in Runners World. She‘s actually runs with him on a leash, right?? 3mo

Annl When I lived in the Canary Islands, we had a pet donkey called Ramon. It was an amazing experience. He and a dog we rescued were best friends! And love the cat photo! 3mo
QuietlyLaura Kitty snuggle puddle! 😻😻😻❤️ 3mo
LauraBeth @Hoopiefoot same! 😂 3mo
LauraBeth @Annl I think “When I lived in the Canary Islands, we had a pet donkey called Ramon.” should be the first sentence of your memoir. 💕 3mo
LauraBeth @QuietlyLaura always the sign that it‘s getting colder! 😹 3mo
Simona Poor Bitsy ... it‘s her bed‼️ Or not anymore? 3mo

@megzlynn w/another insightful review.
"The #Halloween Tree is a quintessential Halloween story....The book started off great....The ending was #heartwarming and satisfying....All in all, it was a quick read. It would be perfect for kids this time of year. It was #spooky and fun."

Finished this 600pages collection of #Shadowhunters novella. It's a collection of short stories of Jem from #TheInfernalDevices throughout the century to find the lost Herondale, so there are lots of characters & children of the characters we love throughout the book. It's not her best work but it sure warms your heart reading them. Ive gotten so emotional during a few.
3.5/5 read
A #WarmColor book💖 for #ColorMePretty
#review #heartwarming #TID

BooknerdsLife TBH I‘ll say this is a hard choice between pick and So-so...but a must read if you love TID & have read her other books...Oh just seeing those we love in TID like Tess & Will & their children melt my heart! 7mo

Captivating, heartfelt, curious, and compassionate. I adored the characters and fell deeply into their intertwined story. #heartfelt #heartwarming #family

A pleasant, quick read, this British romance is told from multiple perspectives, but unlike many other recent novels that have attempted this, One Day didn‘t fail miserably (high praise, I know; I‘m a tough customer). With plenty of allusions to British romantic comedies, this tale puts its reader on a bit of an emotional roller coaster, and like the high-speed ride, you know where you‘re going, but that doesn‘t make the trip any less enjoyable.

dgingo I read One Day in December in one day this December (12.29.18).

Holidays are for book binging, no?

The_Heeler_Booklife I loved this book. I finished it a few days ago and it was just 😍 13mo
dgingo @allthingskayla I enjoyed it, but I also would have liked to see Laurie and Jack together for a bit at the end. I know it wasn‘t ever going to live up to our expectations of them together, especially after all that time, but I would have still liked to see them together for a few pages. I hope they don‘t do it, but I get the feeling there will be a sequel. 13mo
The_Heeler_Booklife @dgingo I agree that I wish there were more about Lu and Jack in the end and I wanted to see Sarah‘s wedding. Plus, it would been kind of funny to see Oscar again with a second failed marriage because he was married to his job. I do hope for a sequel, I would be over the moon for one. (edited) 13mo
dgingo @allthingskayla And I felt like there was much more unsaid about Oscar‘s mom. Maybe it got edited out, as it was 400 pages. Yes—more with Sarah and Luke too. But, I loved the recipes at the end! 13mo

Wonderful! I am giving this book to every kid I know this year, including mine! It caught my eye because we have another book by this illustrator, but it‘s a moving gem about art overcoming language barriers and connection between Grandparents & grandchildren! I almost cry every time the grandfather and grandson hug! #5stars #heartwarming #artconnects #diversebooks #goodgift

"Everyone's life has a secret, something they never talk about. Everyone has words they keep to themselves. It's what you do with your secret that really matters. Do you drag it behind you forever, like a difficult suitcase, or do you find someone to tell?"

Beautifully written with many heart warming and heart wrenching moments. This book was wonderful and you should read it!

#Wonder by #RJPalacio is both #heartbreaking 💔 and #heartwarming 💗. I made it through 256 pages yesterday, and plan to finish it this morning. I took another day off to recover from this sinus infection (or whatever it is 🤧🙄). I did get a flu shot this season, so I‘m hoping it‘s not that🤞🏼. My sweet #schnauzersoflitsy are comforting me and melting my heart as always. #DogsofLitsy #Dogs🐾 #ThisRemindsMeOf 💔 #BeKind | #BeKindMovement 💙

BibliophileMomma This is such a cute pic. The book was so good. Hope you get feeling better soon! 😘 2y
Jess7 @Tiffy_Reads - Thank you! #Parker helps make any picture cute. He‘s super photogenic lol. 😉 Thanks also for the well wishes! I deal with sinus issues a lot, but this time it‘s really hit me hard. I‘m going to go to the doctor later to get swabbed for flu since it‘s so rampant this year (just to be safe). Hoping it‘s negative though! I‘m loving the book, and I‘m excited to watch the movie this weekend. 💙 2y
Airforcesister I know how you feel. I am getting over the Flu and Step. 2y
