After 4 years at Tulane I will always hold New Orleans #closetome 💚💛💜 My Mom ( @Mdargusch ) went to High school and Tulane with the author of this book! So I chose to read it for #booked2019 #remindsyouofyourhappyplace. Savic really captured the peculiar essence and eccentric personalities that make up NOLA but the story left me wanting more... #anglophileapril
I read “The Truth About Forever” for the first time when I was seventeen. I loved it just as much then as I do now, on the eve of my 30th birthday.
I love the writing style, the well-written characters, the emotion behind the storylines and romances. Wes is still one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends. Most of all, I love how reading any of Sarah Dessen‘s books is just like coming home.

Okay so I've never been to Alaska (where this book is technically set) but I do love the Pacific NW. Plus, Moore is my favorite nature writer so I'm going to go ahead & pick this one for #remindsyouofyourhappyplace. It's filled to the brim with nature. Forests, oceans, storms, animals. Toss in a few quirky characters, a piano, and I'm happy as a clam. #booked2019

Thank you @Cinfhen for the reminder post about closing out #winter for #booked2019. I ended up crossing off 4 of the prompts: the tagged book for #newtoyouauthor; An Irish Country Love Story for #setinIreland/Irishauthor; The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie for #femaledetective; The Woman in Blue, #remindsyouofyourhappyplace for making me long to be back in the English countryside. This is a pretty good result for me!
I can never pan a Simon Serrailler mystery, but this one had a few faults that moved me right out of the “pick” zone. DCI Serrailler is one of my absolute favorite male detectives—I told my mother once that if we could bring him to life, I‘d absolutely ask him to marry me (so you see my outright bias)—but in this outing (the 9th), he is a bit self-pitying, with a short temper, and a churlish attitude ⬇️
This book is just as great as the first... Laini Taylor is an amazingly gifted writer, and I love this story, these characters, and the incredible worlds they live in.
Listening to this book was pure pleasure and I‘m sad that it‘s over.
ALL THE STARS! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was my #remindsyouofyourhappyplace book for #booked2019 because of the narrator. I‘ve said it before, but I repeat: Steve West is one of the very best. I ❤️ to listen to him! 😍
Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite book and movie of the series. Hermione is a total badass in this one and Buckbeak is my favorite of the magical creatures. I adore Sirius and Lupin. Although the movie fails to capture the true tension between Ron and Hermione, I think it's still a good adaptation 🦉
