Back in 2021 I kind of took a dive into some cult documentaries and someone said in one “We talk to our kids about drugs and alcohol, but we don‘t talk to them about cults.” And it really resonated with me as a mom of teenagers. I came across this book by @amanda_montell and found it very interesting.And especially as a linguist by education found the idea of how language and cults work together absolutely fascinating. Son is reading it now

First book of 2022. I really enjoyed it! I‘ve actually watched the movie before, which I very much enjoyed, but, as expected I loved the book much more. It‘s very atmospheric and poetic, and even though there‘s so much sorrow, it is also full of beauty.

CSeydel Oh, I loved this one! 2w
Booksbymybed @CSeydel 💜 the movie was really good as well 2w
tenar I‘m about to finish this book this evening, and it‘s feeling very bittersweet! 2w
Booksbymybed @tenar totally how I felt! 💜 2w

Final book of 2021. Interesting interlacing of Japanese culture and self help, though I would prefer more culture. Listened to the audiobook and it was a bit too fast for me, so will have to refer back to paper copy for the bits I‘d like to revisit. Nature section was my favorite.

Had an absolutely delightful week rereading this series, gripping plot, wonderful characters, perfect slow burner romance that was carefully stoked throughout the book.

This one was only an ok, quick read. The Butterfly Effect +self help book wrapped up as a novel. Alas a bit too bland for me.

CSeydel Totally agree. I didn‘t understand all the hype around this one. 2w
Booksbymybed @CSeydel I‘m so glad I‘m not the only one!💜 2w

Reread and I was quite bored, though I rather liked it the first time I read it a few years back.

Heartbreaking, horrifying, uplifting story of survival, resilience and life-long healing. I couldn‘t put it down, a must read for all.

Wintering came to me just in time for my own strong desire for pause and hibernation. Reading of author‘s journey was comforting, I can certainly relate to a lot of the struggles.I‘m looking forward to the actual winter and embracing the winter within. Marked a few chapters to reread later.

Wanted a light and comforting read, but I‘m now halfway through the book, and it doesn‘t do it for me. DNF.

Wow, why didn‘t I have this book, or didn‘t think to get it 6 years ago when it first came out? I would have been better prepared, less frustrated and maybe prevented some of the avoidable problems. A must read for parents, my teen will read it next and hopefully it‘ll help him understand himself a bit better.

The Enchanted Life by @sharonblackiemythmakings It is one of those books that came to me almost by accident, but turned out to be fateful. My heart responded to every word and I know it changed me forever.

Book 4. Finished “My Lady Ludlow”, the second country life novel in “The Cranford Chronicles “ book. This one was very slow for me, but full of little heart warming and heart wrenching gems Gaskell writes so well.

Something that started as an engaging and fast-paced magical read, gradually slowed down around halfway mark and dragged and dragged until a tired final chapter. Didn‘t get into romance line either.
