A Fire Story | Brian Fies

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

From afar, I know that these fires cause great tragedy as they consume homes & lives. This book helped me comprehend the depth of trauma each individual faces when this type of devastation strikes.

It‘s a beautifully written story of loss with a glimmer of new beginnings. The author captured the emotional impact so vividly & I am thoroughly impressed with his work.

52 week reading challenge: A romance (13)
US state challenge: Indiana (5)

This was a powerful and engrossing story that stirred up a lot of emotion, some of it because it reminded me so much of my own painful memories. I think it is one of the best books I‘ve read in a long time. It is one I wish I could give more than five stars to.

52 week reading challenge: A young adult novel (12)

The story is a lot of fun with some intriguing darkness. It takes a while to get there but you learn about the characters, their struggles, their heartaches, and their quiet hopes as it pulls you into the dark fairytale twist.

State challenge: North Carolina (2)

Kya is officially my favorite human character from a book. I felt as if I knew her and, at the same time, I wished I could know her. I think there is something incredibly magical about a book that stirs such emotion within me.

I think Chase‘s interest in Kya constitutes as #crazylove

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It saddens me that this book of contemporary poetry hasn‘t received more attention. Valerio Magrelli has an extraordinary ability to explain the most mundane things and turn them into beautiful portraits and profound points. He is an exquisite artist with words.

52 week reading challenge: Recommendation from a friend (9)

There is a lot of depth packed between the pages of this extraordinary book. Some of the issues it deals with are war and its effects, trauma in various forms, searing loss, overwhelming grief, moral choices, the poison of prejudice, and harmful religious beliefs.

ElizaMarie I read like water for chocolate... I remember hating it. But I had this thing where if I started I had to finish.... 8mo
Butterflyamore @ElizaMarie I am trying to no longer do that to myself. I actually made it a resolution this year to abandon books I wasn‘t enjoying. I‘ve wasted too much time on things I‘ve hated and I‘m not getting any younger. It‘s been very liberating. 8mo
Suet624 Into the Wild. 💕💕 8mo
ElizaMarie @Butterflyamore this is something I struggle with. I still finish them but take so so long to finish it. But I can see how this is liberating. I am trying to adopt this mindset 8mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Love the photo! ❄💕 8mo
booksandsympathy I read Like Water For Chocolate in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I read it a good 13 years ago and still think about it. 8mo
Butterflyamore @booksandsympathy Glad you enjoyed it. Definitely not one I‘ll ever try to revisit. Just not the book for me. 8mo
Butterflyamore @Suet624 Right? Such a great book! I really want to read more by Jon Krakauer now! 8mo
tiffanirae I thoroughly enjoyed 7 1/2 Deaths!! Just finished it yesterday. I thought it was so much fun. 8mo
Butterflyamore @tiffanirae Yay! I‘m glad you liked it. I can‘t wait until he writes another book! 8mo

The Undressing: Poems | Li-Young Lee

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I didn‘t care much for the title poem. Other than that, there were some beautiful, haunting, thought-provoking, and troubling poems in this book with lines that I will gladly revisit so they can stick to my soul.

Although I enjoyed this, I didn‘t feel quite as mesmerized by Lee‘s words in this collection as I did by Rose, the previous work I read of his.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

52 week reading challenge: A children‘s novel (6)

Inkheart is a magical story that brings the mystery and wonder of books to life. It made me laugh, cry, worry, and hope. I felt the text was captivating, adventurous, and heartwarming. This is a well-written children‘s novel with rich, descriptive vocabulary, profound ideas, intoxicating charm, and a heroic crusade.

An Anonymous Girl | Sarah Pekkanen, Greer Hendricks

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

52 week reading challenge: A book published in 2019 (5)

Although the book was a little slow to start, once it picked up, I didn‘t want to put it down. I really enjoyed the pull of this narrative. Unfortunately, the ending left me slightly dissatisfied, as I had expected more fireworks.

I am now very interested in reading The Wife Between Us in the future. Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen are excellent writers and storytellers.

Elma I just finished this yesterday. I totally agree about the ending. Personally, I thought The Wife Between Us was better. It had more twists and turns. 8mo
