When my bf and I went to Iceland in the Spring, we saw a lot of #waterfalls. So I thought I would highlight the books I read before, during and after my trip to the wonderful island of Iceland 📚👌


Mitch I ❤️all three of these. I think my heart belongs in Iceland ( problem is I have a husband who hates the cold!) 1y
Robothugs I have Burial Rites! I really need to read it; I‘ve seen nothing but love for that book. 1y
Avidreader25 I was in Iceland in September! I loved it and have read Burial Rites. 1y

Kalalalatja @Mitch that might be a problem! And he can‘t be convinced by beautiful nature? 🗻🌄🌋 @Robothugs It was amazing! @Avidreader25 it is one of my favourite places to visit! 1y
BarbaraBB I am just starting Burial Rites! 1y
Mitch Ha ha , I wish! @Kalalalatja He came to visit me when I was working there a few times - but I couldn‘t get him to stay longer than a weekend! He‘s more an equator man! 1y

The Farseer Trilogy | Robin Hobb
post image

For a lot of these books, Fitz and the Fool just want to #bewithyou #heatinjuly

Kalalalatja ❤️❤️❤️ 1y
DivaDiane That looks very similar to my Realms of the Elderlings shelf! I was only able to get the 2nd two of the 20th anna era art editions of the Farseer Trilogy though and so, like you I have the smaller purple one. 1y
TrishB @DivaDiane the Elderlings shelf is a bit lower down in the book case 😁 1y

tessavi That shelf! ❤️ 1y
DivaDiane @TrishB Oh it‘s all the same thing. The Fool was in the LiveShip Traders series and some of the same characters in LiveShips and DragonKeepers. And then it all comes together in Assassin‘s Fate, doesn‘t it? (edited) 1y
TrishB @DivaDiane 👍🏻 1y

It was too #hotinhere in our apartment, so we decided to try out the new harbour pool. I bought a book, but I‘m not sure I‘m going to be out of the water long enough to start it 😄🌊🌊


emilyhaldi Curious to see what you think of this one! 1y
Kalalalatja @emilyhaldi me too! It was a recommendation from @batsy for my #RecommendationsChallenge2018 👍 1y

This book starts with Daniel running from something #burn-ing. Slowly, throughout the book, we learn how Daniel got seperated from his father and sister, and why he is fleeing the burning of his family home 🔥🔥


BarbaraBB An impressive debut, this one. 1y
Cinfhen Still have to get to this one!! 1y

Cathythoughts That‘s beautiful 💫I love trees 1y
Reggie This book has made me more aware of trees than I have ever been in my life. More appreciative. And depressed. Of all of the original, old growth, forests that were here in America before the settlers arrived in the 1600‘s, more than 90% of them are gone. We are down from 6 trillion trees to 3 trillion in the world. The book is a great environmental novel, check it out @Cathythoughts. I realize I‘m not doing it any favors with those stats. 1y
Reggie But the writing is beautiful. 1y

Centique That painting is gorgeous! 1y
Suet624 I know it sounds silly to say but I love trees. 💕💕💕 1y
batsy That's gorgeous. "If your mind were only a slightly greener thing" aaah 1y
BarbaraBB Wow 1y
Ddzmini Really beautiful 😋 (edited) 1y
Cinfhen Absolutely stunning 💚💚💚 1y
Leftcoastzen 👍❤️ 1y
Reggie @Suet624 That‘s not silly at all. @batsy on YouTube you can find a video of the author giving an interview where he reads the opening to this book and I swear it‘ll lower your blood pressure. 1y
batsy @Reggie I just found it, thank you. So soothing 🌳 1y
GatheringBooks the writing is lovely in this one, but i just can‘t get into it. technically proficient and deep, but i find it so hard to emotionally invest in the story, and i find my attention drifting- i am now a few pages in Trunk. 1y
Reggie @GatheringBooks really? I found myself crying for all of his characters. The last 100 pages kind of threw me for a loop but my heart broke many times in here for everyone. And the trees. The amount of family history he was able to supply us with for each character kinda shocked me. 1y
GatheringBooks @Reggie i am hoping it gets better for me as i read further on. crossing my fingers. 1y

Here Comes the Sun | Nicole Dennis-Benn

Even though Margot, the MC of this book, would rather say #IKissedaGirl, she has to sell her body to men she doesn‘t like, to keep her little sister from having to do the same. In a community where homosexuality is taboo, and where your family‘s needs are more important than your own, Margot struggles to find her place, and to find love 💔


Cinfhen I tried this book, it was too “heavy” for me at the time. 1y
LoverofLit @Cinfhen I'm so glad I found your comment after guiltily bailing on this book. My first bail in months, I found myself really sick to my stomach trying to finish this. Really heavy topic, though an important one! 6mo
Cinfhen That cover is SO deceiving @LoverofLit I just couldn‘t read it any longer, either!!! Don‘t feel guilty, books aren‘t meant to torture us🙁 6mo

#IGottaFeeling that once I start this series I won‘t be able to stop again. Which is why I‘m so happy I‘m home alone from Thursday until Sunday. I can feel a Hobb-readathon coming on! 👏


Mitch Oh..... I‘ve not read those. Be got to go back and read the first trilogy then I can progress! Jealous of your week. It sounds so good! 1y
Kalalalatja @Mitch I love reading a Hobb series during the summer. This is the fourth one, and it doesn‘t follow Fitz and the Fool, but it follows the aftermath of the Liveship Traders Triology. At least I think so 1y
Mitch Having just finished the Liveships im so looking forward to that set. I was tempted to read it next, but think I should try to rectify reading out of order and go and acquaint myself with Fitz! 1y

TrishB Amazing author and books 💕 1y
Kalalalatja @Quirkybookworm I bought mine online, so I‘m not sure which stores you can find them in, sorry! @wanderinglynn she might be my favourite fantasy writer ❤️ @SandyW thank you, I expect I will 😉 @Cinfhen I know, @TrishB has great taste 😉👌 1y
wanderinglynn @Quirkybookworm I found them at my local Barnes & Nobel. 1y

#IGottaFeeling that I just witnessed a miracle. 😱I was 115th on the list when I put this book on hold last week which usually means months of wait time time til I see it. But it was ready for me today 😁💕 It‘s moving to the front of the line! #HeatInJuly #PhotoChallenge

BarbaraBB It‘s a miracle 😉😀 1y

Haven‘t read this yet but want to. But just like the smog that strangled London in 1952, in the summer of 2009 I felt strangled by #Igottafeeling. I had just started dating a guy and it became our theme song. We would turn on the radio in the car, it‘s on. Go to the store, it‘s on. Go dancing, it‘s on. Go inside an elevator of the hotel, it was on. And just like the guy and what we had, it got old real quick. The strangling #heatinjuly.

emilyhaldi Love this 1y
TrishB Great post 👍🏻 1y
