A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard

Not book related, but it came up as a related quote so I couldn‘t resist. True story, I stalked this movie for months before it came out bc I loved the actor Ethan Embry that much. But then it got buried for a bit. I never would have guessed it would go on to be a cult classic. #empire #quotsymay19

This quote not only fits today‘s prompt, but speaks to me right now. As many of you know, I‘m in the midst of moving. We got the house many of you send good vibes about. Unfortunately the seller took the offer as leverage for the original offer. We were in attorney review simultaneously without knowing it. Apparently this is unethical, but not illegal. So it‘s back to the drawing board. Continued good vibes appreciated. #experience #quotsymay19

cathysaid Wow. If they are that unethical, imagine all the issues they likely covered up in that house. You probably dodged a bullet! Good luck in finding something even better! 1w

In a nutshell, I wasn‘t a fan of this book. The main characters had zero conflict. There was literally nothing standing in the way of their being an item, except their stupid pride. There was no build up which left a trope that usually has such potential being such a dud.

Looking for something light while simultaneously fulfilling another goal in my #litsyatozchallenge This book‘s cover also reminds me for some reason of some of the teen novels I used to read back in the day. #letterr

The lukewarm reviews are pretty accurate with this one. It had a unique premise, and an odd twist I wasn‘t expecting. However, I didn‘t find myself connecting to the characters all that much. The dialogue was a bit repetitive and there was a weird, religious undercurrent inconsistently running throughout the book. On the plus side, I‘ve fulfilled the somewhat cumbersome task of reading a book that starts with the letter Z.

Littens, I need your help. We are in the midst of the very stressful process of selling and purchasing a home. On the plus side our house got an offer very quickly. The downside, if all goes as planned we have to be out mid June. We are lucky to have a temporary residence with my parents, but we found a home we love. However, someone else found it first. Now we are trying to outbid them, we love it that much. Prayers and good vibes appreciated!

I suppose this book was well written enough, but my judgment is probably clouded by how much anxiety it caused me while reading it during an already anxiety ridden portion of my life. I didn‘t even know the story was based on true events until after reading. That only made me sadder. Adoption is never easy, but I can‘t even imagine what it must be like to assume you‘re giving your child its best chance at a good life only to find out otherwise.

I didn‘t understand the point of this book. A guy, below average height, suddenly starts growing at an alarming rate. You keep thinking there will be an explanation for the growth some sort of closure or lesson, but it never comes. Sorry to spoil, but I don‘t want you wasting your time. In the meantime there‘s an underlying current of normal angst that comes with coming-of-age stories. It was just too disjointed for my tastes to see the point

There‘s probably not much that can be said about this book that hasn‘t been said before, so I‘ll just add to the long list of people that will tell you to believe the hype. This book had a different writing style, but once you got used to it, the writing felt more like an experience than a regular novel. I definitely can‘t wait to see this become a series, if only to hear these songs, so integral to the story, come to life.

Pruzy Ok, but will someone not born in the 70s get all the references? (Ps not saying that you were alive in the 70s or anything) 1mo
Purrfectpages @Pruzy I was born in 77 and I‘m not a 70s fan I general (I‘m an 80s girl). I didn‘t find it heavily rooted in that decade at all, reference wise. Younger women from my book club loved it too. I also should say though I love music and knowing this will be a series gave me an extra layer of excitement while reading it. (edited) 1mo

Maybe I wasn‘t in the right mindset to read this book, but I had trouble connecting to the characters. It‘s got a cute, Hallmark feel to it, but I felt like the storyline was a bit all over the place. The main character was also particularly gullible and annoying, leaving me wanting to shake some sense into her, and the people who wanted to help her, more than a few times.

'90s Island: A Novella | Marty Beckerman
post image

Although I didn‘t realize it then, the 90s were a pretty formative decade in my life. After all, I did graduate middle school, high school and college all within these ten years. I‘ve always been stuck in my love for the 80s, but time has made me nostalgic for the 90s now, too. (Some of my faves L to R New Radicals, Cake, Alanis, Danielle Brisebois, Jude Cole, Letters to Cleo, Third Eye Blind, Jellyfish, Tonic). #90sspringfling
