It snowed 9 inches overnight, on top of the couple of feet of snow already on the ground. That means theres nothing to do but wrap up in a fuzzy blanket and try to put a dent in the ol' TBR.

Old Man's War | John Scalzi

Pickpick

First book of my staycation readathon done! A pretty impressive first novel. Scalzi can always be trusted for wry, self-deprecating characters, snappy dialogue, and a surprising amount of heart. .

Heart Berries: A Memoir | Terese Marie Mailhot

Pickpick

Saturday morning #coffee and #books - just finished this memoir by @tmariem83 and it blew my mind. I had to stop underlining passages because I realized I was essentially underlining the entire book. Go on and read it. You will not be disappointed. .

I wanted to read a book by an Indigenous author while visiting Alberta, and I definitely made a great choice. This novel was magical, lyrical, heartbreaking, inspiring. I simply loved it.

Warbreaker | Brandon Sanderson

Clocking in at over 500 pages, but it definitely didn't feel long. Very well paced, and showcases Sanderson's amazing world building skill.

Bailedbailed

I just couldn't. I hung in there as long as I could. Please note that it wasn't the cannibalism that stopped me - I didn't even get that far. It was just so slooooow. And I was hoping for a critique of manifest destiny, but none was given. The Donners weren't heroes - they were ill-prepared colonialists who got in over their heads. Sad, but not admirable.

We switched the spare bedroom and the library. My books haven't been organized in the two years we've lived here. Do I tackle this, or just shove the books in the shelves as they fit? WWMDD? (What would Melvil Dewey do?) #library #overwhelmingbooktask #catcameo

1) reading way outside my comfort zone with this historical romance
2) I read this line really quickly and thought it read "now, with the dungeons of adolescence." Kind of disappointed that it didn't.

vivastory If I ever wrote a memoir about my teenage years, it'd totally be "the dungeons of adolescence " 3y

Virgin Suicides | Jeffrey Eugenides
Pickpick

How does JE write about normal crap in a way that makes you think it's the most important and beautiful thing in the world?! Amazing.
As a feminist, I chose to read this as a critique on society's tragic and harmful objectification of girls. There's an awesome essay on Medium.com by Sarah Leeves that says it better than I can!

I so wanted to like this book. There were some witty bits that I enjoyed, but on the whole I found it slow and kind of boring. I was kind of relieved to be done with it.

I wish there was a rating even better than "pick," because I would give it to this book. It was pretty much perfect. I can't wait to lend it to my nieces!

1) holy moly we have a lot of bacteria in/on us
2) probiotics not the miracle cure we may think
3) our reliance on microorganisms can't be overstated
4) science book with a Walt Whitman title. Relevant to my interests.

I thought I wouldn't be as engaged reading this again (first time audio, this time with my eyes). But it was just as great, and I picked up a lot more. I just wish someone would do it the justice it deserves on screen. Give it a limited run Netflix series with a decent budget and a talented director! Please!
