The Stand | Stephen King

I think this may be my 5th or 6th time reading The Stand, but this quote struck me this time -
“She loved him in this picture, as she loved him in all the pictures her mind drew.” I don‘t think SK gets enough credit for how beautifully he is able to capture love.

Anyone read this one? I loved how it worked the fairy tale from the inside out and made it so believable.

So this is the 8 millionth metaphor or simile in this book. I‘m about 1/4 in...maybe. I want to edit this A LOT!!!! I haven‘t read Koontz in several years - is this normal?!?

This was a book that was hard to put down. I spent a few awesome hours on the couch deeply immersed!

How to Walk Away | Katherine Center
post image

And, hello. I‘m back. After nearly a year of coping, managing and losing one of my favorite things I do...I missed this. So this title feels a little like a metaphor. I went through Hospice, pseudo-nursing, losing my dad, grief and an attempt at learning who I am without “Daddy‘s Girl” as a defining characteristic. Bookish I still am. Critical thinking, interpreting and writing...I‘m coming back.

Reviewsbylola Welcome back. I‘m sorry to hear how hard your year has been. 💔 2y
Karli Thank you! I‘m hoping for a new and wonderful 2018 2y

It certainly WAS a different day for Eleanor. This book started out super for me and then lost its punch on the way through. It was witty, sad and finds hope. The illustration section in the middle is fantastic.

A Man Called Ove: A Novel | Fredrik Backman
post image
Pickpick

Pictured are my favorite "cat annoyances". I think Ove and the grumpy old man from "Up" are kindred spirits. This was a great book about a man finding beauty in life after his wife dies.

Suzze Are they all related? 3y
Karli The two white ones are litter mates, the black one has the same dad. All are from the same small breeder though. 3y
SaraFair Their faces are so sweet. 3y
SaraFair Teach me the breed. I know all dogs but few cat breeds-look like persian faces? 3y
Karli @SaraFair - the breed is called Exotic Shorthair. They are like Persians but the shorter fur makes them a little less maintenance. They are the most loving cats. One of our kitties - Agador - has some breathing issues that are a result of the smushed in face and short sinus. 3y

Karli @Hooked_on_books - he would help carry, but he doesn't understand that I'd rather have books than money. (Or perhaps he understands that entirely too well?) 3y

Aswenson It kept me reading, but she did an excellent job of making the mum unlikable (to me anyway). So I struggled with that and disliked the ending. But overall I enjoyed it!? 3y

It is -18 F, so naked seems like a bad idea. However, curling up with a book and a blanket feels brilliant.
