All by myself today so I‘m reading at the desk! I‘ve had this one for awhile! Any one else wonder what‘s the point of getting a book of essays that are available online 😂 maybe if I was already a fan?

I must say, I‘m not loving this book and it‘s sad because it has a lot of things I love. I love that it‘s set in Montreal and I think the writer is very good at writing in way that shows the emotions of the characters. I just hate the MC! If she was real person she would be someone I would actively avoid and it‘s not because they‘re a bad person but because they can be so haute about “Art”

Smrloomis Do you have other favorites set in Montreal? If so, I‘d love to hear suggestions! 2y
KassKho @Smrloomis try heather O‘Neil (my preference: lullabies for little criminal, the lonely hearts hotel, the girl who was Saturday), the home for unwanted girls, Katy Reich‘s déjà dead, last night of montreal and bone and bread 2y
Smrloomis @KassKho awesome, thanks! 2y
teebe Felt the same way. Loved the writing, couldn‘t really connect to the characters🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y

New book stack from #bookoutlet ! Really leaned into the non-fiction with this purchase :)

Also, is it just me or do other people constantly order the scratch and dent copies without realizing it?

Samplergal I 💕Brain on Fire. And I often start on the scratch and dent side as well. Saving money 💰 is important! More books! 2y
Cinfhen Echoing @Samplergal loved that memoir and I‘m ALL about scratch & dent 🤑 2y

This book has been an amazing ride through a part of Canada‘s history that I knew nothing about. Set in the 1950s it focuses on the Duplessis Orphans. In Quebec, Duplessis had orphanage converted into asylums and labeled all the orphan mentally insane and then used them as workers to care for those who were actually sick. It‘s a gruelling story but one I‘m glad to read about, especially when it was so beautifully written!

Melissa_J I had no idea this happened! 2y

This was my first romance and I got to say that I liked it! I liked that everyone felt so real, that the history between everyone was on every page. I listened to it on audio and there was something about people talking to dirty to each other in my ears that had me go “oh my!” 😂😂Will definitely grab the second and third in the series

AlaMich Jenn on Book Riot is always talking about how much she loves this series. I keep meaning to read the first one, just haven‘t gotten around to it yet. 😊 2y
KassKho @AlaMich that‘s exactly why I picked it up! And she‘s right! It‘s really good and I like that the next two books in the series deal with the side characters because I really wanted to know more about them 2y

@teebe I‘m enjoying some of the tea you got me along with a very a propos black rose I received from a client today! Turns out an ex sent her flowers and she wanted none of it! Yikes! But it‘s so pretty! It gives me Beauty and the Beast vibes because it‘s an eternity rose.

Happy birthday lady! I don‘t really have a favourite book but when I think about the book I loved the longest it‘s probably A Great and Terrible Beauty! The magic! The era! Opium!
My advice for 40 year old me? Do the things you love regardless of what people say you should be doing by the time you‘re 40! If that is traveling than travel! If you want a family have a family! It is up to you :)
#thebig40giveaway
@TheWordJar

TheWordJar Your book rec sounds fantastic! Stacked! (I realize in hindsight that asking Littens to choose “a” favorite book was a silly proposition!) And that‘s the best advice! It does seem like 40 seems to be the threshold where people stop caring what others think and do what suits them regardless. I‘m ready for that! Thanks for entering! 2y
