A nice book haul from the historic house Polesden Lacey that also happened to have a second hand bookstore with great gems all for Qf! ???
I have always considered this to be one of my favorite books and would spend hours reading it up at the lake every summer. I am so concerned with reading new books (and trying to come within a fraction of my families insane book consumption) but maybe I should revisit an old faithful and remind myself why I loved it in the first place. #rip2myyouth #aprella
This is my #firsttime posting about a read along but most certainly not @emilyhaldi s first selfie. 🤦🏻♀️🤳🏻#aprella. This fabulous photo was taken in bath the one time home of jane. I like to think of myself as lizzy. Is Emily more of a Lydia or kitty?! @Cinfhen @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi
This book was such a wonderful look into the past 70 years of Irish history. The main character can‘t seem to stop fucking up but you can‘t seem to stop rooting for him. The authors note are the end was also a heartbreak that we can all relate to. Thank you John Boyne for making my london commute a bit more bearable.
First book of 2018 - don‘t worry I finished this over a week ago I just don‘t post daily like @Reviewsbylola @emilyhaldi @Mdargusch big fan of this book and now need to go buy everything by James Cain.
I felt just like Eleanor going to Tesco Extra on a Sunday for my weekly shop but I think it‘s safe to say I didn‘t pick up as much Glen‘s. Easily my favorite read of 2018.
Trying to get this finished up before @Mdargusch gifts me with more books tomorrow! 📚🎄
It sometimes feels like all I do is work but only a week until I am home for Christmas and our family book club! @Meredith3
I have recently started taking the bus to work and it has been amazing because I get to read everyday! Struggling a bit on this Friday morning with the main protagonist, Elena. I get this is a journey of self discovery but I wish she would stop being so meek. Anyone else agree?
I just finished the 3rd book by kevin kwan and can confidently say they are all amazing. I want to be Astrid Leong and will now be planning a trip to Singapore
Fellow littens - do you struggle with your book clubs? Part of the group is full of great conversation and even better recommendations- like the above, such a good read. I don't think I would have stuck with it if it wasn't for the high praise from my friend and I am so glad I did. But my club has so many rules and the self elected leader is not inclusive of new people. I love having a book club but I don't think I can stick it out.
It was an interesting subject but I felt like the author gave way too many details that were redundant or confusing. Also I get it - the amazon is terrifying! Was an almost DNF for me. Did anyone else struggle?!
Can't wait to dive into my Persephone book haul. If you have never read one of their books you are doing yourself a disservice. One of my favorite stores in London and they ship to the us! 🇬🇧🇺🇸📚
Lesson learned - don't pick up books next to the B&N checkout counter. I love historical fiction and am fascinated with Empress Sisi but I can honestly say that I enjoyed reading her Wikipedia page more than this book. I had to check that it wasn't YA because the way it is written assumes the reader can't be older than 13. Next time I am taking @Reviewsbylola advice on a book pick!
Vacation book haul! My sisters and mother have been waiting for this day for too long. Stephanie can be very persuasive.
