The Border: A Novel | Don Winslow
post image

Winslow's "The Cartel" turned out to be one of the most memorable & powerful reading experiences of the year. So, I'm obviously looking forward to reading his final installment in his trilogy. I hope to get to it by the end of the year, I just know that once I start reading I'll be immediately hooked.

lele1432 I loved The Force! Have been meaning to get to this series since I finished that book. Although this seems even more violent, so I've been holding off into I'm in the right headspace. 4d
vivastory @Cinfhen You speak the truth! 4d
vivastory @lele1432 The first book in the series Power of the Dog contained some violence, but the second book really went to a new level with it. Which is understandable because Cartel covered the most violent years, but it is a very uncomfortable reading experience at times. But still powerful 4d
Amiable @vivastory “The Force” is excellent, too! 4d
andrew61 Look forward to seeing your comments as the ending of the cartel made me wonder where he could go next, wherever however i can't wait ☺ 4d

Have a couple of Chernobyl books on my kindle that I haven‘t got to yet!

Cinfhen That‘s going to be a subject I plan on tackling in 2020. #SoManyBooksSoLittleTime #LiveAndLearn 1w
TrishB @Cinfhen great idea 👍🏻 I‘m going to get some planing done once I get to my holidays! Still one more to finish for #booked2019 1w
Cathythoughts Planning sounds like a good idea. I‘m completely without a plan ... 🤔... maybe a Litsy diary for 2020 💡 1w
TrishB @Cathythoughts me too! I want to plan when I feel relaxed and less stressed with work! 1w

1984 | George Orwell

1984 probably seemed a long way off when this dystopian #Future was envisioned. Now the events in the book sometimes feel like reality.

Cinfhen I should probably reread this book!! But you know, #SoManyBooksSoLittleTime 1w

Little Town on the Prairie | Laura Ingalls Wilder
post image

I #crave the yummy dishes that authors take time and care to describe, and Laura Ingalls Wilder's descriptions of food always makes my mouth water! This description of Ben Woodworth's birthday party meal stayed in my mind for aaaages 😆

#MOvember @Cinfhen

Cinfhen I agree; food descriptions are a good indicator of history, place, time, culture and region 2w
JennyM Descriptions of food are always good 😊 2w

ljuliel @Leftcoastzen Potato cakes ! We had them when I was a kid. I still make them on occasion. Very good ! 2w
batsy @Cinfhen @JennyM Agreed! ❤️ 2w
batsy @Leftcoastzen @ljuliel Yummy! I'm drooling 2w
batsy @merelybookish I love these Puffin editions. Well loved and falling apart! 2w
xicanti I loved her food descriptions so much that I begged my parents to get me the official Little House cookbook. Then I taught myself to cook from it! 2w
batsy @xicanti I love that!! 💜 I hope it was yummy! 2w
rubyslippersreads I assume you‘ve read the food descriptions in 2w
jillrhudy My fave is when the turkey came in on the train after the long winter and they had butter! 2w
batsy @jillrhudy Oh yes! She finally had her Christmas dinner in the spring! 2w
jillrhudy @batsy I haven‘t seen a pat of butter the same since 2w
batsy @jillrhudy I know, right? In section I quoted above in Little Town she also talks about eating an orange, an utter luxury, and I always think about that when I eat oranges 2w
Centique I love her food descriptions too! I‘ve only read the first one of these, must read the rest 😍 2w
batsy @Centique They're all such gems! The craving for a re-read of the whole stories is strong. Alas #somanybookssolittletime 2w

Great idea @monalyisha and thanks for the tag @kspenmoll 🙌

I‘m not in a book club, and some days I wish I were, while other days make me glad I‘m not 😅 However, if I got to decide the reading list for a book club for a year, this would be my list. All of them are super high on my tbr, and I‘m thinking a mix of different things is the way to go


Chrissyreadit Nice! Three of those are on my TBR too. 3w

Daughter of Fortune | Isabel Allende

We went to two library book sales today, which was a lot of fun! This is the haul from the second sale. I found three at the first sale and I‘m very happy with those but trying to get them all in this picture wasn‘t going well for me! They‘ll get their time to shine later. Have you read any of these books?
