My second favorite gift after books. What are you reading?
I fully own i have a dilemma- reading Bindle Punk Bruja so I can mail tomorrow, Listening to The Myth of Normal, want to listen to Christmas Days by Jeanette Winterson and reading The Vanished Days on my kindle app (when I wake up at 3 am it‘s my perfect companion) I Really want to spend my spare time reading- but there is still so much to do!How do you organize your time? #holidayfriends
I fell head over heels at the beginning of this book. I knew I was going to love it; the writing was so beautiful. However as the book progessed, and as her life unfolded, it became less engrossing. I think that this might have been deliberate, to show maturing and aging. But it made it less compelling. I'm glad I read it, and I think it will stay with me for a long time. I'm looking forward to reading more from the author.
About the potato blight in #Ireland that led to crop failure and famine and disease and death. This story is dated from the Autumn of 1946 to the Spring of 1947 and is in the point-of-view of a twelve-year-old girl named Lorraine who lived in County Galway on a farm leased by an English lord. I recommend this story to anyone who doesn‘t know this #history and enjoys #middlegrade #reads.
