Mehso-so

After a significant amount of DNF time, I picked this book up again as 1st pick for my Patreon Book Club: BOOM! Accountability.
There were glimpses of intention, reform, passion but the packaging (voice, format, word choice, range of content) made it pretty inaccessible/off-putting.
I‘ve never hate-read before, but I feel like this was necessary for part of this book.
Necessary for learning, perhaps.

Magic mountain.

A wonderful, entertaining, dignified regency romance.

Dreaming Spies | Laurie R. King

We have no dreaming spires to be taken for Oxford, but Portland can put together a divine sunset!!
Reread this book last night and this morning. A dashing plot and fun setting in Japan and Oxford.

valeriegeary 😍😍😍 that sky! 2y
MargaretPinardAuthor Yes @valeriegeary I don‘t often get amazing sunsets because of the hill so this was making me go ‘ooh! Ooh! Again! Look now!‘ To the audience of one vaguely nonplussed cat. 😾 2y

I was here when I heard, “how do you measure the soul of a city?”
Such a great, honest, timely, curious, big-hearted book.

Inkblotsandcoffeestains I absolutely loved the Priory of the Orange Tree! But it starts very slow! 2y
MargaretPinardAuthor @Inkblotsandcoffeestains I started Priory first and the feeling to me is very carefully laid dominos...not boring, but very precise with the names and places to break me in... 🤗 2y

MargaretPinardAuthor Thanks @marleed ! Yes, I‘m worried about the lasting effects, as well... 💔 but at least we can breathe outside again. 2y
