been reading a lot of dark books for the past few months. Time for a nice warm book.

Children‘s museums are a #gift to parents. Easiest way for me to get reading time in while my child plays. #magicalrealism

I swore I was only going to the library to entertain my toddler..

2 cookbooks (greek and senegal) and 2 nonfiction. the bottom picture is maps of animal movements/behavior! #litsyloveslibraries #cookbook #science #animals

TheKidUpstairs That Greek cookbook is one of my favourites. So beautiful, and such tasty recipes (that are super easy to make!) 7mo

The Bridge of San Luis Rey | Thornton Wilder
post image

i joined the #wordytraveler bookclub on the Peru box. This is the fiction that came with it.

It was OK, a pulitzer prize winner written in the 1920‘s….. by a white american.

I‘m disappointed that the two books that came in the Peru box were both by white american men…

The tagged book wasn‘t even really about Peru. But hey it was short #peru #classic #subscriptionbox

The subreddit, r/fantasy, has their 2022 fantasy bingo up!

Every year I tell myself I will participate and yet I never complete one.

I think I‘ll just go for a row and column this year. #readingchallenge #bingo #fantasy

The Untold Story | Genevieve Cogman
post image

Probably the last book of the “Invisible Library” series.

probably a 3.5/5 for me. I enjoyed the premise of the whole series and thought Genevieve had a very.. fairytale like story for this one. However, I really do not like the romance aspect and it feels… forced and I think this book would‘ve been better stretched into two. Also disappointed by the lack of focus on stealing books.

A few years ago I started a personal tradition of reading in Christmas Eve.

The book I‘m reading tonight! It‘s for a bookclub and nothing says “Joy” and “Peace to Mankind” like a thriller/Mystery!

Home Before Dark | Riley Sager

I haven‘t had a strong reading year so far. I‘ve been quite busy this year and haven‘t read a lot of books that held my attention. Part of the reason is also because I‘ve been playing a lot of video games lately (assassins creed and sims4 mostly).

Hopefully a change in genre will kick me out of my #readingslump #mystery

keys_on_fire I have been in exactly the same boat. For some reason (pandemic maybe?), I have found it much harder to focus on reading. Playing games has been much more of an escape for me. Good luck! 12mo
