I was obsessed with this book as a kid, and I remember reading it multiple times.
The main characters discover a secret world #underground where the people speak their own language.

Alice Hoffman is one of my favorite authors so I follow her on Instagram. A few months ago I saw she was reading this book from my tbr. I asked how she liked it and she said it was good. So I feel cool. And now I need to read it too.
It‘s written by an author from #France.

We took a road trip last month for our 20th anniversary. This was taken around Half Moon Bay in California. I did not read this book while on the trip but I‘ve read it twice before. Jack Kerouac definitely had a double helping of #wanderlust!

When I saw the #LetsTravelJuly challenge was #Concert I thought of this book.
🎤 One of my favorite parts was that Henry kept time traveling to a concert. Even if you see the same artist more than once, no concert experience can be duplicated.
I love imagining having that ability bc I have been to some awesome concerts I wish I could go back to!
🎸 What concert would you go to again if you had the power?
@OriginalCyn620
@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

OriginalCyn620 I‘d revisit so many concerts! I saw Elvis Presley when I was 3...it was my very first concert! Definitely would see that again. I‘d also see Elton John‘s farewell tour again! 🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶 1w

Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters, Volume 1 | Eric Powell, Tracy Marsh

Pickpick

I‘ve been a Godzilla fan since I was probably a first grader watching the Monster Matinee with my big sister over summer break. Seeing the new movie promos made me want to read the graphic novels for the first time.
This had some excellent Godzilla gratification & some cameos from other monsters from the movies. My favorite part was when a character talks about how great the border wall is and a monster smashes through.

After a busy week with fragments of time to read here and there, today I‘ve finally had a good chunk of time to read. I like Bernadette and look forward to finishing her tale.

I forgot to post my May TBR! So far I‘ve finished Before We Were Yours.
🐎 Up next is My Guy Barbaro. I always like to read a horse racing book during Triple Crown Season.
🐽 I‘m planning to reread Lord of The Flies for the first time in 25 years for a Scary Children Challenge on LibraryThing.
🕶 Where‘d You Go, Bernadette is for my Monthly Key Word Challenge.
⏳ Now all I need is some time to read in one of my busiest months of the year!

I need to finish this in time for book club tomorrow! I had 170 pages to go when I started tonight, now I‘ve got about 145. Luckily it‘s picked up after a slow start earlier this week.
Caprica is helping me out tonight.

Tonight Stellaluna and I are reading The Time Machine. It‘s not what I pictured it would be, but I like it.
Hope you‘re all having a happy Friday night!

Sisters in Law is a bog at times, so I‘m breaking it up with Bright Dead Things and What the Fuzz?!
What are you reading this month?

This was another beautifully awful Alice Hoffman story. I always feel like I received a life affirmation after reading her books.
A big bonus for me was that this one also has dogs. In fact, Alice named her real life dog after the main character, who I also follow on Instagram (mizindependentshelby).

I just finished A. J. Fikry. It was quick & delightful!
Up next is Sisters in Law - I‘m going to see the play with my book club next weekend!
Stellaluna always nearby when reading for support.

It takes a moment before Shelby realizes she is the little girl in the picture. Her mother‘s handwriting is on the back. Shelby at five. She‘s wearing a sun hat and there‘s a huge smile on her face. She is surrounded by stalks of dahlias, orange and yellow and pale red, with leaves so big you could write your life story on each one. She looks like a flower in the garden, just like her mother said.
