The Word Is Murder | Anthony Horowitz

Yay! First in line for this #audiobook from the library. I was tempted to buy the UK paperback last year, but really wanted to experience it on audio like MAGPIE MURDERS. I love it when you get it the night before release day. 😎🤓

This will be perfect before bed!

“Murder is scary; who wants to claim it? Who wants to understand it? But at the end of the day, I believe there‘s something to be gained from acknowledging female aggression, even when it‘s sick and twisted. Otherwise, we‘re living in denial. And just for the record, this denial is exactly why so many charming grandmothers managed to kill for decades without being suspected of a thing.”

EvieBee @erzascarletbookgasm @LectricSheep @TrishB Thank you! 🤗♥️♥️ 13mo
EvieBee @Grrlbrarian I‘ve had her books for some time and it just felt right to start now! 13mo
EvieBee @RidgewayGirl That‘s always awkward, isn‘t it? Many of the Persephone books from the 30s are dated in that sense too. 13mo
CindyMyLifeIsLit You do have that huge societal difference in the openly expressed racism, but fortunately that is a very small part of the book. The rest of it had me often laughing out loud, as her other books do, as well. They are some of my very favorite books! Someone who can make tuberculosis hilarious is truly gifted! 😁 13mo
EvieBee @CindyMyLifeIsLit I‘m so glad to hear that! I just feel like this is exactly what I need at the moment. Learning to do the best we can with whatever circumstances we have. I ordered her last book on audio. Hopefully I can read them all by the end of this summer. 13mo

Thought I‘d share this Kindle deal. I‘ve been meaning to read it for a long time, but the author just released a cookbook that was mentioned on the Tea and Tattle podcast, so decided I needed to get to the three books in her memoir series.

My BookBeau sleeves finally arrived, and while they‘re nice, I was very disappointed with the customer service. It took 3 months for order to arrive and I had to keep contacting them for updates. They‘d promise soon and nothing. I‘m grouchy about it.

The positive thing is that I discovered another store. I love the quality/variety, and she does quick custom orders even from UK!

https://www.etsy.com/shop/MelvisMakes?ref=s2-header-shopname

laundry_piles Cute patterns! I have a bookbeau and I thought the price was a little high but it shipped pretty quickly. It wasn't a new release pattern though so mine may have been ready to ship. 13mo
rubyslippersreads I also like the sleeves from @BookGoGo . And @sarah83 sent me an absolutely adorable kitty sleeve recently, though I don't know where she ordered it. 😸 13mo
EvieBee @laundry_piles Yeah, I thought they were overpriced too. 13mo

laurenbescoby I've purchased from Melvis Makes, fantastic. Book Besties and Book Zleeves are both brilliant UK based companies I've purchased too! X 13mo
Birdsong28 Try Wanderstitch Studio. I ordered a sleeve on this Monday evening and got it on this Wednesday. https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/WanderStitchStudio 13mo
Melissa_J Love them! Especially the one with the tea cups 😊 13mo
rubyslippersreads The name is Driworks, but it looks like the shop owner has changed it. If you search for Drisewing on Etsy, you'll see all kinds of fun things, including the cute kitties @sarah83 gave me. 😻 (edited) 13mo
BooksTeasAndBookishThings I actually am not even overly impressed with their sleeves themselves, to me they are just okay. Not bad, but not my favourite. I have so many Sleeve shops, but one in particular is my absolute FAVOURITE!!! And I can‘t wait until she opens back up (they did a huge move across the US and were also doing conventions) soon! (edited) 13mo
EvieBee @LeeRHarry That‘s so good to know! Will definitely consider buying one from them. The XL sleeve that fits huge hardcovers still eludes me so that will be my next one! @rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen 13mo
EvieBee @miralunasbooknook I‘ll be checking them out! Thank you! ♥️ 13mo

This book is so amazing! I‘ve got a ton of books to read/buy based on the recommendations for certain ailments. My only quibble is that there were definitely spoilers for some books. If you‘re aware of that going in, you‘ll fare better. I‘m just grateful for my awful memory. By the time I get to some of the recs, I‘m sure I‘ll have forgotten the spoilers! 👩🏻‍⚕️👩🏻‍⚕️👩🏻‍⚕️👩🏻‍⚕️👩🏻‍⚕️

Picking up a new library book this week. I‘m going to focus on the type of book I‘m reading so I can still work through #readingmyshelves .

1) Kindle book I own
2) Physical book I own
3) Library book (either Kindle or physical)
4) Audiobook (mine or library‘s)

So far this has been working pretty well. It‘s helped me juggle multiple books at once, but not feel bored or limited by my own stash. #CurrentlyReading #bookandcoffee

saresmoore I‘ve adopted a very similar system for myself and it‘s working quite well! It also allows for plenty of mood reading. 13mo

I asked my mom to donate any books I left at home about 6 months ago, but she saved some that she thought seemed interesting in case I changed my mind. They number about 100, and fill a small shelf. I was so touched.

Even though I owned these before, this definitely feels like a #bookhaul ! I had to limit myself to 5.

This made me laugh so hard! I‘ve never heard of “man flu.”

“Man flu is a miserable illness not just for the victim but for all concerned. Bed rest is essential, and the patient—indeed, ‘victim‘ is probably more apt—will require a great deal of sympathy. The victim should be propped up on soft pillows and provided with mugs of tea, heating pads, meals on trays, the remote control, and messages of support and commiseration regularly.”

JacqMac It‘s the worst! 😂 13mo
TheWordJar I‘ve personally taken care of a victim of man flu. It is a true miracle he survived! 😂 13mo

TheWordJar In elementary school, I did a science fair project called “Dancing Raisins”—putting raisins in Sprite and watching them go up and down. The carbon dioxide bubbles get trapped in the wrinkles, causing the raisins to float. At the top of the glass, the bubbles pop, causing the raisins to sink. 🤓 13mo

Anyone else looking forward to this series?! Premiers May 22nd. You can view information about the show along with the list of books at www.pbs.com/the-great-American-read

I took the quiz and have only read 27 of the 100. I was instructed to read more of the books on the list. Will do!

It‘s taken me over a week to figure out what to read next and get past a few chapters. So I think it‘s safe to say I will be reading this through. Phew. Now to choose a library book from the pile. Probably a mild case of reader‘s block.

My first #friyayintro ever!

1) A really rude and unkind person on Thursday. Can‘t stand that kind of thing. Sheesh!

2) A t-shirt. I love their printed cotton tees, and super esssential for the summer. Can‘t have enough. They‘re 2 for $14 at the moment, FYI. 🤓

3) The Race to Save the Romanovs by Helen Rappaport

4) A BBQ pulled pork sandwich my husband made me from a left over roast. And a pickle!

It‘s been so long since I stepped foot in my library. Or at least it feels like it. I think it‘s been 7 weeks. A few weeks before I went on vacation, I decided I should be #readingmyshelves and canceled all my holds. Unthinkable! But I‘ve been getting such great recommendations from you Litsy pals, Podcasts and books about books. Decided I needed to get to these ASAP. Or at least attempt it.

EvieBee @catebutler Thank you so much! ♥️ I find that when I do set limits or bans on buying and only reading my books, I spend way more on books. I really just wish I could enjoy my personal library to the fullest but as long as there are new books I‘ll always want to read other things. Sigh. 14mo

The Gastronomical Me | M. F. K. Fisher
post image

New read and early dinner! My first time making couscous! I didn‘t realize it was so easy. Can‘t wait to finally sink my teeth into M.F.K. Fisher‘s book of essays—inspired by the book THE READING CURE.

According to the Half Price sale sticker I removed, I purchased this in 2012, but it had been in the store (and marked up) since 1991!

#bookanddinner #essays #foodie #readingmyshelves

ValerieAndBooks Love MFK Fisher! The Reading Cure sounds good— I checked out the blurb. 14mo
catebutler I was just thinking about how I needed to pick up a book by MFK Fisher! Great minds!! 14mo
EvieBee @ValerieAndBooks I‘ve been meaning to read her for so long! I don‘t know why she seemed inaccessible to me before but just started and she‘s a darling! I hope you enjoy The Reading Cure! I never pay full price for a book but I knew I needed it when I read the blurb. It was worth the $13. 😆 14mo
EvieBee @catebutler Great minds for sure! Did you by chance catch the author interview on the Tea and Tattle podcast this week? So good! She urged listeners to read M.F.K. Fisher and Patrick Leigh Fermor for sure and ASAP. Oh and Virginia Woolf‘s A Writer‘s Diary if we didn‘t want to commit to the unabridged 5 volume set. I think I need that Persephone edition now. 🤓😆 (edited) 14mo
catebutler @EvieBee I‘ve been saving the podcast, now that I‘ve finished I‘m finally going to give it a listen! I actually just downloaded a complete collection of VW‘s works on my Kindle. I have quite a few of her books, but some of the essays she mentioned I don‘t have a copy of. And yes! I think her diary is going to be one of the next Persephone‘s I order. It‘s been on my radar for far too long. 14mo

This was an interesting #audiobook but not what I expected. Still extremely readable! I thought it‘d be a true crime book, but it was a memoir wrapped around a crime that was perpetrated by the author‘s tennis coach. Really angsty and insightful, and a throwback to the early 90s. I wasn‘t raised in Manhattan‘s Upper Eastside and didn‘t attend private school, but after reading this through I‘m relieved I wasn‘t! 🎾🎾🎾

This was a wonderful story about the making of blackberry fool through four hundred years! The implements changed, as did women‘s roles in the kitchen and even slavery. What‘s funny is after reading MISS MAPP, there‘s a whole section on her famous fool, a recipe which Elizabeth refuses to divulge. Had no idea what “fool” was, so it was lovely to learn about its origins here. 🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣

I shot this background picture with my iPhone! I thought it would serve as a useful background for this book, which I also loved. Call me weird and morbid, but eating disorders and mental illness are things that I seek out in order to understand and empathize. Freeman is so honest about her challenges, but the way she approaches her recovery is so unique and ultimately bookish. My TBR grew a foot taller. Thank you! ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

I know somewhere along middle and high school I got out of reading this collection of short stories. I‘m so glad I did! I would never have appreciated Jackson‘s wit, humor and insight at that age. A real jewel of a book. So many favorites in this collection; can‘t whittle it down to one. 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿

JaclynW @EvieBee That sounds like what I need right now. My life is a little crazy, busy. I'm remodeling my house right now along with regular life with 3 kids. It is a busy time of year. Short stories may be the way to go until things settle down. 1y
EvieBee @JaclynW That sound busy! I completely understand. My mind can only handle little tidbits so I‘ve been dipping into a reference book about books and another one about food. It helps not having to keep characters and plot straight lol! 1y

Don‘t think I‘m quite the backpacker at the moment, but I think I could be in the future....especially when our luggage was lost after we arrived. Dublin airport delivered it the next day. Lovely of them. But seriously considering carry-on only in future. 🎒🎒🎒

CouronneDhiver I always travel with carry on only (for the last 10 years or so) and it‘s so freeing! No nonsense. 1y
WhatDeeReads Dublin is beautiful and lovely. I hope you all enjoy it so much. 1y
EvieBee @CouronneDhiver It is! You just walk right out of the airport and you have everything you need at all times! 1y

Having a late breakfast and cuppa. Enjoying this book so much! I already know it‘s 5 stars but trying to savor every single word! Sigh.

Just got these new page flags in! I have to admit that I love this series of page flags so much that they‘re too dear to part with. I can never bring myself to really use them. Am I alone?!

Mitch They‘re super cute! 1y
WhatDeeReads In a case like this, I buy two. One for use and one for looks. 1y

erzascarletbookgasm Real cute, but I like your books more! 😊😍 1y
whatshesreadingnow They‘re adorable.. I probably wouldn‘t use them either but @WhatDeeReads definitely has the right idea! 😍 1y
MellieAntoinette Nope. I can‘t bring myself to use mine either! So I buy two of each pack! One to keep. One to use! 1y
EvieBee @WhatDeeReads That is an excellent idea!!!! Thank you! 🤗♥️ 1y

catebutler I read this a couple of years ago, very cute! 1y
Lola This was my absolute favorite as a kid. I spent a lot of time trying to kiss my elbow and watching for little china animals to come to life 😍 1y
EvieBee @catebutler I‘m so glad! I‘ve been wanting to read it for sometime now. 1y
EvieBee @Lola Ah! Lol! I actually broke my elbow when I was 5 attempting to fly so this sounded right up my alley. 1y
