North Carolina done! #readingusa2019
Lovely “coming home” book. Ideal for 4th-5th graders. No action or violence. Highlights include foster parents, southern living, VBS, and overcoming prejudices. This counts as my NC book. #readingusa2019
This book makes journaling easy and has some beautiful quotes sprinkled along the way.
Yes! This book is fabulous. The protagonist is a young woman with big dreams in a difficult time. She actually reminds me of Bridget Jones in her bumbling way. I actually got embarrassed for her! Aside from the odd capitalization technique, this is a thoroughly enjoyable and engaging read.
I am an unabashed fan of horror. This book allows the reader‘s mind to fill in the gaps. To draw the pictures. What would happen if you saw Them? What do They look like? What happens to your mind when you see Their faces? Eerie and suspenseful. Downright scary. Loved it. Quick, too.
This was my first Moriarty book. Not bad. Lots of characters to keep straight. Briefly, a bunch of people attend a health resort hoping to transform themselves. And they do. Just not in the way they thought they would. Not a book I would have picked on my own, but entertaining enough. #lalalifebookclub
This book grew on me. It started out going from 0 to 60 in five seconds, but the further I read, the more I wanted to. Very sexy. Like Pretty Woman, but with a male escort instead of a female. An autistic protagonist makes it all the more interesting. A sweet, sexy, unique, modern romance. Set in my neighborhood, no less!
Ever wonder why? I think that may be what this book is about - a woman who has unanswered questions. It is a tying up of loose ends. The once in a lifetime chance to question fate. Heading your way @JenlovesJT47 #GroupQ #LMPBC
Anybody watching 60 Minutes?? This book tells the story of the separation of children from their illegal immigrant parents from three different points of view: the illegal mom, the foster mom and the foster father. Unusual to hear from foster parents. I think it‘s fiction but probably very realistic. Wow. Just wow.
How many of us are there in the SF Bay area? I live in Palo Alto and am wondering if anyone would like to form a book and related adventures club with me?
I am here. Heaven.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! @RavenLovelyReads !!! This is so exciting and PERFECT!! You are so thoughtful, from my favorite candy, to my favorite color, to gifts for my classroom use. Amazing! I wish you the best of all haunted days today. Now excuse me, I‘ve got some scary books to start reading... #HalloweenHorrorSwap
Just a run of the mill Comanche romance. A bit antiquated in its machismo man attitude, but good for light romantic reading.
Finished this one pretty quickly. In keeping with my wizard/supernatural bent as of late. A graphic novel retelling of the first in the series about a Chicagoland wizard just trying to make a living and STAY living!
This is so eloquently written. A lush mystery with amazing descriptions of North Carolina‘s marshlands. I‘ve never really wanted to visit a marsh until I read this book, which makes it seem better than a trip anywhere else. Being from the south, I get a lot of what goes on in this story. I fell in love with Kya and was so surprised at the ending. Very good. #reesewitherspoonbookclub #strongfemalelead
I read this book with my nine-year-old. She‘s an avid reader, so perhaps past the picture book stage (do we ever really pass that stage??) but this is written in prose and I just love it. The illustrations are amazing, too. A great read that teaches us that money isn‘t what makes us truly rich.
