Artemis Fowl | Eoin Colfer
Mehso-so

Finally finished Artemis Fowl! I enjoyed the fairy lore and explanations behind human customs linked with fairy history. I thought parts of it dragged, but overall I enjoyed it! #booked2019 #irishauthor

I love Marian Keyes. Her books never fail to suck me in. This one had me feeling all the emotions. Great read!

A well-structured mystery with some great airplane bits at the beginning! I quite like Crofts' work and will have to continue reading it.

#BookAndLunch: poutine from the local poutine festival. YUM! Perfect festival weather too: blue skies and sunshine, and high of 16 C.

tournevis My friend told me about it. On Sparks, right? Must be the last weekend. 3w
rabbitprincess @tournevis No, it's in front of City Hall. The Sparks Street one was last week. I was going to go to that one, but the weather was yucky. 3w
tournevis @rabbitprincess Ok. Interesting. Two poutine fests in teo weeks. 3w

rabbitprincess @tournevis Yeah, I wish they'd spread them out a bit! Oh well. 3w
Traci1 Mmm, poutine. It's one of the things I miss the most about living just across the border from Quebec. 3w
rabbitprincess @Traci1 It was so good! I have to limit my intake to a couple of times a year, though. 3w
shanaqui Ah, you've got started! I need to find a spare minute somewhere, gah! 3w
rabbitprincess @shanaqui I ended up finishing yesterday! 😁 Sorry, I should have posted when I started! 2w

I‘m trying to put a dent in this one. I like it, but it could be shorter. There are unnecessary bits. Maybe her editor was having a bad day.

This morning‘s start time. This is outside my kitchen window. Only 20cm of spring snow. 😑 But we don‘t have to go anywhere today. It‘s going to be another great day for some cozy reading. I‘m on chapter 17 and I really want to smack Hugh upside the head.

Buechersuechtling I totally understand that the weather is annoying and felt to be inappropriate but it really looks beautiful. 😊 3w
JacqMac @Bookish.SAM @CocoReads @wanderinglynn It‘s too much! Lol I‘m just going to hide and hope it melts soon. 3w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I totally get why there are mixed reviews for this book. It is a challenge to read, requiring a lot of concentration. I had to really pace myself with it to avoid getting overwhelmed. But in spite of this, I really enjoyed it.

First, Maggie is a badass, who has lived an interesting life.

Second, this book has pulled me out of a reading slump twice. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 Seriously, it‘s good.

Third, I went to Vanderbilt Hospital about my foot, and the MRI done in my hometown cuts off where I‘m having pain. So I need another MRI and appointment. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ At least I liked the doctor! 😂😂

valeriegeary Love this book! Sorry about the foot. 😢 4w
wanderinglynn So sorry about your foot. I hope it‘s an easy fix. 💚 4w
Megabooks @valeriegeary It is really good! And thank you! 4w

Megabooks @wanderinglynn Thanks! 💛 I hope I was just given the wrong PT based on a wrong diagnosis. (edited) 4w
readordierachel I loved this book, too! Sorry about the MRI 😔 4w
Megabooks @readordierachel It‘s such an interesting book. Thanks! 💙 4w
BibliOphelia Ugh. My year has been beset by medical missteps. You have my sympathy! 4w
Megabooks @BibliOphelia You as well! Thank you. 💛 I hope you‘re able to find answers, too. 4w
BibliOphelia The struggle is real. ✊ 4w
SW-T It was an interesting book. Reminds you of the importance of good health! Invaluable. Sorry to hear about your foot. 4w
Megabooks @BibliOphelia For sure!! 4w
Megabooks @SW-T It does. And listening to your body and instincts. And thank you! 😊 4w
Cinfhen Was hoping to get an update about your foot!!! At least the second opinion confirmed your suspicions about the original MRI 4w
Cinfhen I still didn‘t like this book, though!!!! But I‘m glad it got you out of your slump!!!!! 4w
Megabooks @Cinfhen Yes, I hated to be right, though! It was funny, the orthopedist I saw had gone out with a field vet and saw a horse castration. She was all, “I didn‘t think it would be so bloody!!” 🤭🤭 Sorry you didn‘t like the book! 😬 4w
Cinfhen Horse castration, THAT sounds freakin bloody to me!!! 🤢🥴🤮😮 4w
Megabooks @Cinfhen Donkeys are worse! That was a bad day on Field Services! There‘s also a story about a sick llama that lived at a Hampton Inn! 😱 4w
Cinfhen Hahaha!! Just had my morning coffee... not ready for the sick llama 🤪 4w
Megabooks @Cinfhen I‘ll refrain!! In honor of coffee everywhere 😉🙃 (edited) 4w
BarbaraBB I just bought this one as I‘ve become a real fan of her! 4w
Megabooks @BarbaraBB I want to read more by her. What do you suggest? 4w
BarbaraBB But there are a lot of her I really really like 4w
Megabooks I did not realize Maggie is Irish. I thought she was from Wales. Can I count this as my #booked2019 #irishauthor? @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft 🇮🇪 4w
Cinfhen 💯 💋 4w
Megabooks @Cinfhen thanks, friend! 🥰 4w

I went back and forth between pick and so-so, but chose pick because it is worth checking out. Not something i fell in love with or would read again, but I liked it enough to read it all in one day. it is a haunting story of homelessness
