A good day for a snooze.
Eleanor made me roll my eyes and shake my head. She made me cringe. She made my heart ache for her.
The world needs more Raymonds.
What an unexpectedly good read.
I liked parts of the book. 🙂 I didn‘t like parts of the book. 🙁 I thought some parts were pointless, or off track (?). 🙄Some of it was funny.😂 Some of it was difficult subject matter.😬🥶 I would love a book about Lev, Kolya, and Vika‘s lives after the war. 😍 That would be something to read. 👏🏻🤓📚
I think this is the 2nd book i have been able to finish since COVID hit. This year has been more difficult that I thought! I enjoyed it. Very interesting overall, but my favorite section was about Legacy. Feuds in Kentucky, plane crashes, and middle schoolers...
Amazingly, this is the first book i have finished since everything shut down and I have been at home. It was a good story, easy read, happy ending, and rumor has it that Tom Hanks will be starring in the movie at some point.
I loved the character of Count Rostov. I would have loved a whole book focused more on the main character. But the chapters with lots of references to Russian history started to make my eyes glaze over. The Count is lovely and sweet and I was impressed with how he “mastered his circumstances” many times over the years. He is someone I would have liked to have known. 💚
That‘s not right... right?? 🤔
I enjoyed this book! Usually i lose interest in memoirs after i have read about 2/3 of the book. But this one kept my interest all the way through. He has lead an interesting life and he talking about many different topics, which helped to keep my attention!
Read this for a book club at work. Very interesting story and a quirky beginning to her long career in code breaking.
My parents helped me nerd out this week by stopping at this #littlefreelibrary in Detroit! It was huge, btw. Whoever made it, painted the inner set of doors to look this the inside of the TARDIS. You slide the inner set of doors open to get to the books! It was pretty frickin‘ cool. 😃😎📚💚 @Wife
This story had me shaking my head, muttering outloud, and exclaiming “Oh my god” or “unbelievable” during car rides when I listened to it. Some of it was difficult to listen to and it just reaffirms the fact that you never really know what someone is living.
I think the relationships in this book made me love it so much. Between humans and animals, humans and humans, young and old. As in any relationship there are moments of joy and pain, growth and loss. This book explores all of it and more! 💚🐙💚
Really enjoyed this book!! The narrator was great. The story was super interesting and the outcome was bizarre and unbelievable!
Audio-walking on this hot, hot afternoon. Needed a break from the sun for a few minutes, but the breeze and shade is so nice that I think I have been sitting here for close to 45 minutes! Also- this book is fascinating! 🦆🐓🦃🦜🦢🦚
I heard they were making a HBO show based on a book called His Dark Materials. So I hunted down the book and learned it was a trilogy. When I was done reading it, I noticed it was a Young Readers book. I felt like it was “a bit much” for a young reader. My next thought was “HBO is making a show based on a YOUNG READERS book???” 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔
This story was extraordinary. Made even more interesting by the fact that the author is an expert on brains and mental illness- and she began to experienced symptoms of mental illness- and then could remember and EXPLAIN to the reader what was going on in her body!!! I mean, whoa. The epilogue almost got me 😥😥
I really enjoyed listening to this book. A lot of lightbulbs went off as I noticed similarities between the author and my thought processes and behaviors. The book is making me reconsider the way i live and think!
I was excited to read this book. I wanted to like this book. But it was a frustrating read. I feel like I know more about William Randolph Hurst, Walt Disney, and SFX departments than I do about Milicent Patrick.
Overall I liked the storyline and the characters in this book. I was a little confused on a couple of the storylines- why they turned out the way they did and at least one of them seemed unfinished to me. I grabbed this book as i walked by it at the library. I didn‘t even slow down! I just liked the book cover 🙂
I LOVED this book. David Fairchild traveled the world, married one of Alexander Graham Bell‘s daughters, helped to create the U.S. Department of Agriculture, introduced many of the foods that you eat today, and is responsible for the the cherry blossom trees in Washington D.C.! I mean— what a life and thanks for the avocados!
Etta is getting real fed up with life in front of the camera, but approves this book.
Very cool graphic novel! Very quick intro for YA and students- it describes what was going on without getting too in depth, but it also doesn‘t gloss over the struggles and hardship that many people faced during this time in our history.
This one was between a pick and a so-so for me, but I went with a 👍🏻 because I gained a new perspective on so many little things that i may not have experience with, but were a part of the author‘s everyday life. Always a good thing.
Not my usual genre, but I really enjoyed listening to this book. It kept my attention and I liked the narrator. I might see if the same narrator reads any other books I might be interested in. Also.... i totally called it, from early on in the story. Mystery solved. Go me. 🤗
Jody! I love everything! That bag is amazing and the personalized keychain- guess how many times in my life I have found my name (spelled correctly) on anything!! Zip, zero, nada!!! I wore the socks today, i already opened the chocolate, and I am excited to read the book! Thank you! Happy Valentines Day!!! 💚💚💚 #jb @JoScho
Listened to the audiobook after reading the suggestions in Litsy comments. I was not disappointed! I love them both, and listening to them talk about their lives was funny, interesting, surprising, and heartwarming. 👍🏻👍🏻
@irre - thank you for my surprise package!! You made my day with your letter and all of the goodies!! They are very much appreciated 💚 I‘m excited to read these books- Maid sounds really good. 😀 Again, your kindness and thoughtfulness made me smile and we keep me busy this weekend ☃️☃️☃️
This was always a favorite of mine. I listened to the audiobook read by Kate Winslet. She does some great voices 😀
I truly enjoyed this book. It was amazing how Gaiman weaved the ancient gods into modern day life. Not just one or two, but dozens of gods from all different cultures and points of history. I enjoyed the different ways the gods originally came to America as well. Last but not least- Shadow and Laura. I felt for him, rooted for him, and hoped the best for him in the end. Laura- damn, I did not see that coming- fist pump for you, girl.
Starting my three day weekend (snow days are the best) with a kitty and a book. This book is a beast but I just made it to the halfway point! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 #mayhem #teacherslovesnowdays #gonnasleepallweekend ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️
