#BookReport - Not a lot to check off this week as I finished two books not in my windowsill - the tagged book + An Old-Fashioned Girl - and then picked up (and completed!!) the hefty From Blood & Ash. I started reading Rose Daughter last night and am quite enjoying it so far. Only one week left to get these cleared off my windowsill... I'm sure that's a plausible goal, right? 😂 @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Hahaha #NeverSayNever 🥰🙌🏻💗 9mo

So I wrote a blog post about my favourite reads of 2019. I somehow whittled this list of 24 down to 5. Can you guess which made it? Might need to go over there to see. https://trishtalkstexts.wordpress.com/2019/12/21/best-books-2019/ uhm, spoiler I don‘t talk much about them, just about that they represent. Anyhoo, already reading 2020 books, so I might be calling it on 2019. #neversaynever

MicheleinPhilly @Cinfhen I got this as an add-on when I succumbed to @Reviewsbylola ‘s temptation. 3y

Chelsea.Poole @Cinfhen I'm addicted to true crime so I may be way too biased, that being said--loving it so far!! Not yet 100 pages in. 3y
Chelsea.Poole @cathipink I snatched it up as soon as I could, it's not a disappointment so far 😊 3y
Chelsea.Poole @MicheleinPhilly hopefully you'll be glad you succumbed! 😂 I'm not far enough yet to say for sure but I think I'm going to like it!! 3y
MicheleinPhilly 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 3y
Chelsea.Poole @Reviewsbylola you could be encouraging much more harmful behavior than reading!!! 😅 3y
Reviewsbylola Very true!! 3y

May had been a difficult month. I decided to give myself some TLC for June. I started a mental health journal, worked on a few self-care tips, wrote down notes on how to deal with anxiety and stress. So far, I have dealt with June #likeaboss 😎
Never thought I would need a self-help book but #neversaynever

TrishB Whatever works 👍🏻 3y

Paperback Edition of #febuarytbr #readingresolutions #MountTBR
Last 4 small paperbacks I own. When I'm done with these no more; unless it's extra special or hard to find. Print is just too small. I have to read in bright light & even then I squint. Jane Austen inspired ones & Iona I bought used for read up to our trip to UK. Just never got to them. Boots one? I love a good magical shoe story.

Custom of the Country | Edith Wharton

#Rocktober #IntheEnd I didn‘t bail on my bookclub read and I actually grew to appreciate this novel of vanity, satire and social climbing. Edith Wharton has a mighty wit and a sharp pen...perfect for flinging zingers🙌🏻 While Undine Spragg is a total vamp, I give her credit for pursuing her wants😉I did do some #pageskimming but #IntheEnd I‘m glad I did not #TakeTheBail

BarbaraBB I haven‘t read this one but generally love Wharton‘s characters! 5y
batsy Whoo! Happy to hear that. Love me some Wharton. I haven't read this one yet. 5y
TrishB Well done 👍 5y

Tamra Wharton is a master of snark. I love her! 😄 5y
robinb Love Wharton too! 5y
emilyhaldi Woohoo!! Nice to see your bookclub saga get a happy ending ☺️☺️ (edited) 5y
Reviewsbylola What other books of hers have you read? Just curious how this one compares. 5y
Cinfhen This was my first Wharton @Reviewsbylola and she does appear to be the master of snark @Tamra Bookclub is tonight and the girls are ready to chat @emilyhaldi @BarbaraBB @batsy @TrishB @robinb 5y
Reviewsbylola If you decide to read another one, The Age of Innocence is my favorite of hers! 5y
Cinfhen I probably won't @Reviewsbylola but #NeverSayNever I'll try to keep an open mind... 5y
Cinfhen I know lots of people loved 5y
Reviewsbylola 😂😂 I actually didn‘t love Mirth. It wasn‘t bad but just not great. 5y
BarbaraBB Age of Innocence and House of Mirth are both excellent I thought! And Ethan Frome as well! 5y

The Raven Boys | Maggie Stiefvater

This is a pick if you like YA fantasy. If you don't, I wouldn't bother.
I thought there were some good ideas and potential storylines - I will probably read the others in the series as they are a quick light read, but I'm not rushing at the moment.
@Cinfhen I think you will be doing a lot more eye rolling before you get to the end (if you do!) 😀😀

TheLudicReader Despite all the positive buzz, I couldn't actually read it. I quit about page 30. 5y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I need to read this! 5y
mjdowens I love YA. This book, no so much. I bailed but may try it again one day 5y

Bookgirl Loved this but the series goes way off the rails unfortunately. 5y
TrishB @Cinfhen split views 😂 @Bookgirl I think it will be one of those series where I fill in the gap via charity shops! 5y
Cinfhen Well done, Trish!!! I'm not going to bail but it's safe to say I will not be continuing on....😘 5y
Cinfhen However...I've just reached page 160 and I'm oddly being pulled into the story.....#NeverSayNever 5y
TrishB @Cinfhen 😀 I really liked Blue and the women, the boys didn't really grow on me! Hopefully it will keep your interest now! 5y
