Completely serendipitously I found this book yesterday at our used book shop and I started reading it. I had to buy it because I love History and I love Halifax. Little did I know that today is the 101st anniversary of the great explosion! This book is well-researched and very readable.

squirrelbrain How bizarre with the timing! 10mo

Just starting this book (with an incredibly beautiful cover), for #ReadAroundtheWorld #Korea is the country we‘re reading for the month of #June . This book is also written by my 'author for the year' Margaret Drabble, so I am hitting two birds with one stone 😁

AshleyHoss820 I started this one too! I‘m on Part 2, at the moment! I‘m enjoying more than I thought I would, after glancing at some reviews on goodreads...which is exactly why I stay away from reviews until I‘m finished! 😄😄😄 Hope you‘re enjoying it! 5mo

Warlight: A novel | Michael Ondaatje
Pickpick

I devoured this book! Ok, I may be completely crazy about Ondaatje (I‘ve read The English Patient at least a dozen times), but I honestly rushed through the first reading of Warlight and can‘t wait to read it again. I read a library copy but I am going to buy this one so I can mark it up, highlight phrases, and make margin notes. I love the way Ondaatje writes- it‘s so beautifully and carefully done. 451 characters isn‘t enough for a proper review

DGRachel I have a hold on this at the library. I‘m 66th in line. I think it‘s going to be a little while. 😳 1y
Miss_Kim @DGRachel Oh dear! I think I was the first on the hold list for this one! It won‘t be everyone‘s cup of tea so hopefully the line will move quickly! I read it in a day and returned it right away. 😊📖😊 1y

Finished this early this morning for one of my #25inFive books. It was great because my Kindle told me it would take me 5 hours and it was just about spot on! This was a particularly nice book for me since I have lived so close to the place where the book is set and I‘ve visited some of the villages. It made me feel ‘homesick ‘ for an area that‘s not even my home.

Here‘s what I read in March! I finished all of these except for Sarum (1344 pages and I‘m working on it). If I finished a book it means I liked it since I always bail on a book that I don‘t enjoy. My favourites on this list were Educated and The Little Red Chairs. Jezebel and Fever Dream were probably my least favourite. Now on to April!

The Little Red Chairs | Edna O'Brien
post image
Pickpick

The most painful book I‘ve read in a very long time, but a very important book as well. Having lived in the Balkans for several years I am well aware of the history of Bosnia so this twisting of truth was riveting and impossible for me to put down. O‘Brien is masterful and I‘ll be looking for more of her books. I ended this one in tears, but with a heart full of tenderness for all whose lives are touched by war.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘m volunteering at our library‘s used bookstore today- one of my favourite things to do! I think the most common book we get as a donation is this one and I‘ve never read it. I think I stubbornly refused to so far.
Should I read it this year?? Hmmm...

britt_brooke If you do, just know that the first 100 pages of the first book are kind of slow but necessary for set up. After that, it‘s super fast-paced, mysterious, creepy, intense. I‘ve only read the ones by Larsson, but I loved them. I‘m still debating on the ones written after his death. 2y
Miss_Kim @britt_brooke I think I read 50 pages once and bailed. Everyone I know loved it so it‘s probably worth another try 😊📖 2y

Ok Littens- how do you decide which books to keep and which to get rid of????

Tamra My policy is if I really loved it like 4.5 stars (and I‘m stingy with stars) then I keep it. Or if it has sentimental value. 😁 2y
Beachesnbooks For me I keep books if I liked or loved them; anything I wasn't into I donate to my library 2y
