Started this with the kid tonight - she pouted when I stopped at the end of chapter one. Win for Mom!

TriniCapini Woohoo!! I've been wondering at what age I can start books like this. Maybe I'll give it a go! 6y

Oh how I despised Edgar and sometimes Fern and yet loved this story. Gorgeous writing and such selfish people.

Going for happy reading today. Just can't face anything too serious. Hope this does the job!

Heather_Reads This made me so happy when I read it. It's completely predictable and cheesy, but also delightful and exactly the sort of book we all need sometimes. 7y
GuninActOne That's totally it @Heather_Reads! 7y

I'm in love and headed down a serious nonfiction rabbit hole with this. Must read all about the Fitzgeralds and of course reread Gatsby.

Where are you Lila and what kind of trouble are you getting into? Lila Bard might be my new favorite. Loki's too

It took me WAY to long to line the cover images up with the title! Shameful. Quite a story. I didn't love it, but this was a really inventive way to imagine how this true story of a missing Supreme Court Justice could have gone

Really interesting history of the manuscripts of Timbuktu and how they were almost lost once to time and then again to terrorism. I know nothing about Mali so this was a great introduction. Definitely bad-ass librarians!

"There is nothing like a Lab for company, and the black are better for conversation I find." Loki gives it the side eye but Grantchester has found the way to my heart.

"Books... Will save Timbuktu" - I hope so because this is starting to sound pretty bleak. Fascinating story of the manuscripts and scrolls so far!

jeff Can't wait to read this! 7y

The Radiant Road | Katherine Catmull
Mehso-so

Maybe it's because I was expecting an adult book and this was YA? The end was so much stronger than the beginning. I need more fairy origin in a fairy story and a deeper connection for love. Loved the inner beasts though.

Made me laugh out loud and made me cry. Backman is fantastic. Not quite as perfect as A Man Called Ove but I loved the fairy tales.
