I'm having one of those moods where I just can't settle myself to reading any of the books I've started, so using the tried and tested remedy of comfort reading...😊

veritysalter The Moomins frightened me so much as a child! 1d
batsy Those editions are so pretty! 24h
Bookwomble @batsy They are ?? Both by publisher Sort Of Books, though I'm not sure why they made "Flood" a different size to the other publications. Possibly because of the painted illustrations Tove did? I'm not sure, but both formats are lovely. 3h
Bookwomble @veritysalter They're cute, but there's also a rather brooding quality to a lot of the stories, so I get why you might have felt a certain disquiet 😱 3h

1. Met with a board member yesterday and accomplished quite a bit!
2. Ugh - don‘t really remember quotes when I‘m reading unless they really stand out.
3. Yesterday was around 40 and sunny. Today is 10 degrees warmer.

This was cute! My wife and I are planning on fostering to adopt in the next few years, and I sometimes wonder if it will be difficult for our kids to explain their family situation. I would consider buying a physical copy of this, although depending on how old the kid is, it might go over their head. I love the cover of this book and the fact that this family might look like ours. #Netgalley #ARC #childrens #queerbooks

Graduating soon and of course I had to take my senior pictures with all of my favorite books! One of my aunts and biggest inspirations in life is obsessed with Winnie the Pooh, and this obsession resulted in her kindergarten students gifting teddy bears to her for the decades she taught.

marleed I love your photo! Sweet story! 5d
Madelpadel @marleed thank you!! 🐻 5d

Coming of age story set during WWII in Hungary, but so much more than just the story of a young girl.
Gina is sent away to The Matula, an all-girls boarding school, and is soon ostracized and plans her escape.
But the real reason behind her being sent away is slowly revealed, and the teachers are involved.
Gets slow in the middle and has a bent toward YA, but definitely worth the read.
Thanks to Edelweiss!

“Grandpa, I miss her dreadfully,“ I said in the end, starting to cry again.
Grandpa looked at me seriously and said that missing people is the best sad feeling there is.“

My favorite part about this book is the emotion is brings and the love of family and friendship it shows through out it.

Adventures with Waffles by Maria Parr was such a playful yet sweet book to read. I read the whole book. It is about 2 characters named Trille and Lena and they invent some kind of adventure that often ends in trouble. Like sledding down the steepest and iciest hill with a chicken. Trille loves to share everything with Lena, even Auntie Granny‘s waffles. Then Lena has to move away and Auntie Granny leaves the world. It is all about friends & family
