Not scary like I thought. Was on a few lists of books that are actually scary. Anyone have recs?! No King - I know all his stuff. I‘m really looking for a comp for Hex! 💀

DimeryRene @Hestapleton That sounds good! Thank you!! 3d

New book and new bird. I am blowing through this. The chapters are so short. I‘m trying to take my time, given the subject matter. A lot of picking up and putting down.

So this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I‘m still trying to figure out how that could be.

Started this lovely little book this week! I‘ve never read it, nor seen the movie! 🥳
Also, the last book I read, The Chemist, I‘ve posted about already - but here‘s my blog about it. I have a book club section on the blog where I detail questions we talk about during meeting — https://greenlightphilosophy.blog/2019/07/09/blockbuster-books-the-chemist/

That-Bookish-Hiker Love this book! And the movie is just as good since the author had a very big roll in making it. 2w
DimeryRene @That-Bookish-Hiker Good to know. I watched the preview this morning and I‘m excited to finish the book and then get to the movie. 🥳 2w

The Chemist | Stephenie Meyer

Mehso-so

Between a pick and a so so. Read it for a book club and enjoyed it enough to finish in a weekend. Had a very hard time thinking of questions to ask at book club. I don‘t think there‘s much to discuss here. Lots of action, lots of guns, big summer block buster of a book. My sticky notes are things I want to discuss, but all very surface level. 🙄

Book and bomb pop soda from yesterday. I am loving this book so far. My first Meyer ever. 🧪🧬💉🦠🔬

Caroline2 Ohhh what‘s the book like?? I haven‘t heard a peep about it yet? 🤔 2w
DimeryRene @Caroline2 It is very James Bond-y! It‘s going by quickly and there‘s some light flirting so far, lots of action! It‘s fun. ❤️ 2w
Caroline2 Sounds good...stacked! 👍🏻 2w
BookishTrish Joyous fluff 2w
DimeryRene @BookishTrish Yes! That‘s exactly what I would call it. 2w

This book made me think of one word: yearn. Evie, our main character, wants so badly to grow up and be loved and to be beautiful. She wants to be an adult and understand the aftermath of WWII and her parents and the hushed conversations all the adults in her life seem to have. She yearns for so many things and grasps a few in the end. A few others, though, fall right through her fingers.

People flee to America from war-torn countries every day. Some are Arabs. Some are Muslims. Some are both, like us. But we could live here for the rest of our lives and never be Americans. You think you‘re doing the right thing by wearing this hijab, but that‘s not what Americans will see when they look at you. They won‘t see your modesty or your goodness. All they‘ll see is an outcast, someone who doesn‘t belong.

My favorite part of reading was hearing Sadie describe how other people talk. I wonder what each of us pick up on because we perceive it as our faults and look upon others as having better ‘x‘ than us.

Then Gimli bowed low. ‘Nay, you are excused for my part, lord,‘ he said. ‘You have chosen the Evening; but my love is given to the Morning. And my heart forebodes that soon it will pass away forever.‘ — Gimli and Éomer talking about who is most beautiful between Arwen and Galadriel is so sweet. ?
