@erzascarletbookgasm - Jesse, I am your #secretsanta, and I didn't get your package out until Monday. I am so sorry! You may know, my daughter just had a baby and surgery on Saturday, but for the last month my life has been consumed with getting her there. I even left my bookstore job so I could be with her-there were complications. My deepest apologies! I'm hoping your present will make up for it! I won't open mine until you get yours. 😘

CouronneDhiver Aw, that's so sweet. Sorry about all the craziness going on. Hopefully all is well. 2y
Crystalblu That kitten picture should totally make up for it!!! 2y
Laalaleighh That kitten face is too precious! Keeping your daughter and her new baby in my thoughts! You are such a good mom. Mine would never do anything like that! She is so blessed to have you! 2y

Ulysses | James Joyce
post image

Here in Chicago, the Bloomsday In Chicago group do live readings to celebrate Joyce. In its' 13th year, it is a fun and joyous event to attend. For Chicago Littens, it's at The Galway Arms at 7pm. Sadly I cannot attend this year- we continue to be on Operation Babywatch and my poor daughter is miserable and needs me to kvetch to. This is my calling.

Cinfhen Ha! Operation Babywatch! Let her Kvetch...being 9 months pregnant in June is torture 2y
CherylDeFranceschi @Cinfhen Of course I let her kvetch- that's why I'm here. I feel so bad, wish there was more I could do for her. 2y

This is a story of love, of madness and obsession. The ending is forever etched into my brain. This book is haunting. And I think it's a very good example of #taintedlove #junetunz

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Have wanted this one for a long time! Good to know it's just as good as I suspected! 2y

CherylDeFranceschi @DeborahSmall Eeee! It must have extra scary if you were pregnant. Hands down my favorite McGrath, too! 2y
DeborahSmall It actually sent me nuts 😂 I cried for days as it freaked me out. I remember screaming at my ex, Sam's dad for 'letting' me read it while pregnant. When my hormones normalised, I read it again and loved it immediately. Then read everything by McGrath. I love Martha Peake and Spider but Asylum hands down the best x 2y

I loved this memoir so much- such a lovely, plaintive telling of an incredible story. And though it's not fiction, I think it has my #favoritetwist of an ending. Holy cats! How do you sally forward without bitterness at that point? But Jeanette does an amazing job, never sinking into pity or recrimination. #riotgrams

I've been making my way through this slowly, savoring the language. So good! In this retelling of The Tempest, Felix loses his daughter to illness when she is 3. However, he imagines her back into his life as a ghostly daughter, his constant companion. He has given her a complete #afterlife. #junetunz

It makes my heart sing #hallelujah to see how many of you chose this song. It's part of my DNA - particularly three iterations of it- John Cale (which was how I came to the song at 15), Jeff Buckley, and Leonard Cohen. So much power and beauty, 😢I loved the book so much I always have 2 copies so that I can press one on somebody! Thank you so so much, @Cinfhen for allowing this song to be part of your amazing #junetunz list! 😘

The only book on this stack of #ashapeinthetitle that I have not yet read is At Night We Walk in Circles. This one was actually harder than I thought it would be. #junebookbugs

A Day at Chteau de Vaux Le Vicomte | Alexandre De Vogue, Jean-Charles de Vogue
post image

This super luxurious book tells the story of Chateau Vaux Le Vicomte. The palace caught the imagination of King Louis XIV, who had all the tapestries, statuary, paintings and furnishings confiscated to be used in the palace he was having built for himself- Versailles. And although this beautiful building still stands, the enormous cost of upkeep has given it times of being a beautiful glorious #brokedownpalace #junetunz

Cinfhen This sounds super fascinating! I'm constantly amazed at what books the Littens come up with every day 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻💕 (edited) 2y
