Really enjoyed this epic, family observing novel. I think at the heart of this is that the new house, good jobs and being socially acceptable are not what is important in times of real hardship and struggle. Sometimes we do questionable things, for no good reason and that‘s life too.
Not a happy read, but an engrossing, life affirming one. Accept life ,try and be happy - you never know what‘s around the corner.

Kalalalatja Okay, you convinced me! #stacked 11h

I think hubby would love this one and I‘m pretty sure he hasn‘t got it yet.

📌Midway: What kind of ending can this book have?
📌3/4 mark: Ending this book is going to be hard.
📌20 pages left: Maybe she can pull off an ending?
📌5 pages left: How is she going to end this?!!
📌Last page:
This book is really good. It's a fearless, raw account of what it's like to suffer from depression and be institutionalized. It's also hilarious. But how do you conclude that kind of story? Maybe by not writing one at all?

britt_brooke Your review has me completely intrigued. #stacked 5d
merelybookish @britt_brooke Oh good! Yes, read it! (As long as you're okay with black humour.) But would love to get your take! 5d
britt_brooke @merelybookish I‘m very good with black humor. 🖤 When I read it, I‘ll be sure to tag you. 5d

OMG! I found the rest of the #Poldark series at a local yearly #booksale. The five #stacked are all the ones I was missing — insert book dance here — now I‘ll be able binge the whole series. 😊 Not shown are the two bags I have that are already full. I know, I know, I really am trying to restrain myself but come on there are just sooo many books! Thank you @SquidgetsRoom for bringing this to my attention or I would have missed it!

I fell into this book from the very first page! With Fangirl vibes and the author‘s uniquely entertaining voice, this story took me by surprise! I loved the awkward MC and her circuitous path to the life she was meant to make for herself. It‘s easy to lose yourself in the whirlwind of early adulthood expectations. Riccio captures that beautifully. This is the book I wish I had had in my late teens and early twenties! Definitely worth picking up!

Megabooks Great review. #stacked! 6d

Dreams, dreams
Of when we had just started things
Dreams of you and me
It seems, it seems
That I can't shake those memories
I wonder if you have the same dreams too.🎶

A hauntingly beautiful tale of love, family, life and death...

IamIamIam This book is perfection. The film is fantastic too but completely unwatchable after Robin Williams died. Emotionally, I can't handle it. 1w

Two families own two houses on a deserted beach in Alabama. There is a third house, almost completely covered by sand. Everyone is scared of that one because it has been haunted for years. Yet both families keep coming back to Beldame.
The horror didn‘t scare me at all, yet in combination with great characters it made for a highly enjoyable read.

Thanks for sending me your copy Cindy, as always so well chosen!💜😘

BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I can‘t find any book set in Nevada or West-Virginia. I have some ideas but no books for Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Missouri, Montana, N&S Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington & Wyoming. Suggestions are very welcome! 1w
RamsFan1963 @BarbaraBB For West Virginia I'd recommend either Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor (wonderful dog story) or The Night of the Hunter by Davis Grubb. 1w
BarbaraBB @RamsFan1963 Thanks!! Since I seem to be into classic horror 😀, the Grubb one sounds perfect! The blurb here on Litsy mentions Ohio but also a journey, maybe that journey leads into West-Virginia? (edited) 1w
RamsFan1963 @BarbaraBB It's been quite awhile since I read it, it was my mom's copy, but I remember at least a portion of the story took place in WV. 1w
BarbaraBB @RamsFan1963 Then it‘ll do! Thank you! #stacked 1w
RamsFan1963 @BarbaraBB If I'm wrong there's another good book by Grubbs you might like called The Watchman, which I am 99% sure was set in a small town in WV. 1w
Cinfhen I will look through and see what I have! Off the top of my head I‘m pretty sure GoldFinch would work for Nevada. But I don‘t own that one anymore 1w
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I‘ve read that one - but not this year! Thanks for the suggestion!! 💕 1w
TrishB I enjoyed this one too 👍🏻 1w
Kaye Good job 👍🏼. I‘m missing some of the same states you are. There just aren‘t as many books set in some states as others. I‘ve read a lot set in Texas , NY, California, so cant count them. 1w
jenniferw88 @BarbaraBB @Kaye for Vermont you could use this book. It starts there but the MC travels across the USA, however Proulx does return to the family home in some chapters. 1w
BarbaraBB @Kaye NY and California are the easy ones indeed. Texas I haven‘t read yet but I do have books set there. It is nice though, looking for some of the less used states! 1w
BarbaraBB @jenniferw88 Thanks Jennifer! “Unfortunately” I‘ve read it already! 1w
Kaye Thanks @jenniferw88 I think I read that a long time back when I read something else by that author. I used to do that a lot. If I‘d find one author I liked, I‘d read more by them, all right in a row. 1w
Kaye Barbara , here are a couple ideas for WV that I‘ve read - Rocket Boys / The Coalwood Way were both excellent. Also, here are a few. https://wvtourism.com/wv-author-books-novels-read/ (edited) 1w
BarbaraBB @Kaye Thanks so much, That helps a lot. I‘ve been enjoying your posts about the various states so much! 💜 1w
Kaye Yes I hit a clog. I need to go back and complete them but the state I stopped on was drawing a blank. Some states have so many to choose from, while others have slim pickings. I‘ll start it up again today and see what I can find. 1w
BarbaraBB @Kaye I didn‘t mean to make you start it up again, I‘vr been happy with the states so far 😀 1w
Kaye No problem...I‘ve been meaning to finish them , so now is a good time. Been awake for hours. Gives me something to do. 1w
Librarybelle So glad you liked this one! 1w
Cinfhen So I think these two might work. For Washington I have 1w
Cinfhen And for Connecticut 1w
Cinfhen Also for Connecticut but I no longer own but HIGHLY recommend 1w
Cinfhen I also read but don‘t own this book set in the Rocky Mountains... I‘m not sure which state anymore but it might be Wyoming 1w
LeahBergen This was such a fun read!! 👍🏻 1w
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen Thank you!! I have read Revolutionary Road and Stepford Wives (both I loved, especially RR!) but the others seem just what I like! Great suggestions! ❤️ 1w
Cinfhen Well I‘m super happy to hand deliver Hotel to you when we meet up 🤗🤗 1w
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen That is great! I am already collecting some books for you too for when we meet! 💕 so exciting! 1w

#MayMovieMagic My current ARC is the story of Patsy, a young Jamaican woman who leaves her daughter behind as she journeys to America in hopes of improving their lives. Patsy is #hookedOnAFeeling that America will offer all that she‘s yearning for, including a lost love...her friend Cicely. But as we often discover, America is not a friendly place for an undocumented immigrant. This story is really good so far, although a bit repetitive.

Kalalalatja I‘m so excited there‘s a new book by Dennis-Benn 🙌 (edited) 1w
