Having a really hard week. The little one had a stomach bug on Thursday, then on Saturday the rest of the family got it, including me. And now the little one has it again! I'm just sooo tired...

Read it on my short holiday in the mountains.
I watched the film before I read the book and I really liked both. I think it's a very good adaptation. Uncle Carlos comes off better in the book though. And I like the insight you get into Starr's thinking.
Thanks @kaysworld1 for the book! 😍

Aptly named second book in the series. But to be honest I don't really like either love interest much, especially not Falin. Otherwise it was very good and it set up a lot of questions for the next book to be answered.

Very difficult issue. I had my problems with this book, especially the very confrontational language. But then maybe that's the only way at the moment for people to get it. Glad I read it

My reading buddies, well, in the evenings they tend to play with each other for hours. So it was nice to have both of them on the couch for half an hour 😻
And the book is soo much fun! The audio is really good, too. I alternate between audio and ebook, when I sew or do chores.

@julesG Progress so far. But I've mixed up the tablets. There's supposed to be a white band next to the blue edges. Ah well...first try 😁

julesG Looking good! You are aware that I now have to buy a set, too. I had a set of beer mats we used to weave with, but those were sucked into the black hole that's my daughter's room. 😁 4mo
Deifio @JulesG I can 3D print you a set with shuttle. That's what I did for mine 😅 4mo
julesG That's a great offer. But I could also buy a set here: www.die-Spindel.de I just need make sure I don't buy any more yarn or more weaving paraphernalia. 🙈🙈 4mo

@moonprismpower Wouldn't that be great as an inspiration for your pyrography? It's a coaster, acturally embroidered faux leather, but I think this design would be great for pyrography too.

This was great! Thank you all for this recommendation.
Everyone needs a reminder once in a while: Relationships are work and you need to talk to each other about the hard stuff.
I also loved the feminism in this book, great quotable passages!

This was a quick read. The characters are so over the top! I think it's funny that the play wasn't allowed to be performed in 1894, when all it did was talk about prostitution and its economic side. Must have been a shock to people back then.

I took my rabbit Shera to the vet today to get her castrated. She's still feeling under the weather and not eating. So I fed her some mash. Poor thing 😢
Maybe the tagged book is not the best choice to ease my worries. I hope she'll feel better tomorrow

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I hope she feels better soon 💗 7mo
CaffeineAndCandy Oh no. Hope she gets better soon 7mo
shanaqui Aww, bunnies often take that operation hard. Biscuit worried us for a solid week after hers! It's because they're uncomfortable, and bunnies always take that so badly. :( Here's hoping she'll be back to normal soon! 7mo
Deifio @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @CaffeineAndCandy @shanaqui Thank you, everyone! I think she's feeling a bit better. She's hopping around a bit, though she still won't eat (except for the mash) 7mo
