Helen Ellis never fails to make me laugh out loud with her writing. She writes about everyday mundane activities in a unique, whimsical way that makes them far more interesting and entertaining.

I did enjoy this collection of stories, but not as much as her other books. Southern Lady Code is definitely one worth adding to your list if you enjoyed this one.

Short stories for fourth book finished for #24in48. I really liked these stream of consciousness stories from a Brazilian experience not typically written about. Surpassed hour 12, but going to try to push on for a few more hours 😴

Loved this one — a strange but hilarious read. And at just 170 pages, it‘s a perfect readathon book!

Checking in for hour 21 for #24in48 and I‘m severely behind. I‘m at two and half hours total (that includes my 35 minutes from work earlier) and I still have another 6 hours left in this book. So far I only disliked one story so that‘s good, the rest I have actually enjoyed quite a lot. Well better get back if I plan on making any kind of dent in this readathon.

This tiny book is so delightful! I‘m flying through its short stories about a murderous octogenarian.

Here I am; I have stacks of books I have yet to read, but I just end up picking books I‘ve already read...twice. Why am I like this? 🤦🏻‍♀️

I am having a myriad of reactions as I read through this book on the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. The sentimental, but sexist dedication note. Realizing that these stories were written before the peak of the Space Race. The due date card a reminder of a library system sadly gone. This book, dedication note aside, is great in so many ways. #24in48
