The Perfect Wife | JP Delaney
post image

Delicious lunch followed by my last event for the #offtheshelf festival 2019.
Campfire beans, I‘m a sucker for anything savoury that is baked, with beans or eggs or suchlike.
Then a conversation with Danuta Kot and JP Delaney about their most recent books, writing process and more.

Sace Mmmm 😋 Looks yummy! 3w

Just what I needed!!! I had the flu, bedridden, was feeling very sorry for myself, picked this up. I found myself thankful for my bed to be sick in, and thankful that there are humans like Deo in existence. Cured me of my poor-me‘s. ***Story of the Hutus and Tutsis is very eerily familiar...the blood feud between farmers and herders going on for as long as people have been settling into existence and talking about it. #offtheshelf #traveltales

First two reads of 2019. Reading selections from the #TBR pile. Mary Bennett yet another Austen ‘sequel‘. Interesting but I didn‘t like the way the best loved characters were portrayed, although most lived ‘Happily ever after‘ by the end.
Really enjoyed The Fall, kept me guessing.

I‘ll be participating in multiple challenges this year; this is my #offtheshelf reading challenge. Trying to move these books from the shelf to my hands! A variety of fiction, professional development and non-fiction. I choose these mostly because I have easy access to these titles in the midst of moving from the south to the north. Happy New Year!

JessClark78 Happy New Year! 2y

A Man Called Ove: A Novel | Fredrik Backman

I ignored many people that told me A Man Called Ove was worth the read. Thanks to #Offtheshelfbookclub I finally sat down and read the darn book! And let me tell you- I was so wrong! This book plucked at all my heart strings even when I didn‘t want to give in. I know understand all the hype and love for Ove and this lovely book. Thanks #Offtheshelf

JoeStalksBeck Omg I adore all these books! Ove is one of these best characters ever! 2y
Lupita.Reads @JoeStalksBeck can‘t wait to read the others! Which one would you recommend I read next?! 2y

MyWeekendIsBooked Fredrik Backman's new book Beartown is more serious than his other books. It's really good though so you should definitely put it on your tbr 2y
Lupita.Reads @KnjiskiZmaj Ove was so good! Haven‘t read Britt but will let you know which I think is best :) 2y
Lupita.Reads @irre thanks foe the suggestion! I‘ll have to check it out!! 2y

Faithful: A Novel | Alice Hoffman
post image

I'll be joining @offtheshelfofficial on their Facebook page tonight at 6pm EDT for their first live book club. They'll be discussing FAITHFUL by Alice Hoffman.

Also if you tune in, there will be a giveaway for a few copies of Alice Hoffman's new book, THE RULES OF MAGIC. If you loved PRACTICAL MAGIC (the movie is one of my favorites), then you'll enjoy this prequel!

#audiobook of the day! Saw this on a couple of book lists #offtheshelf was one and I was intrigued to add it to my TBR list. The main character is neither a hero or villain just an average man who goes through life making choices as he goes through his life. Set in Missouri and takes place over the course of the 19th century including the First and Second World Wars. The narrators cadence is perfect for the story.
