Spring | Ali Smith

Today I finally spent my birthday book vouchers! My birthday was earlier this year so I‘ve had them a while! I got Spring by Ali Smith, The Girl Aquarium by Jen Campbell and S by J. J. Abrams! I‘m so excited to read all these books! #BookHaul #amreading

I started reading The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna by Juliet Grames this afternoon. This is such a beautiful and brilliant novel - I want to savour it and devour it at the same time! This is the second book for my 20 Books of Summer challenge. #amreading #StellaFortuna

JanuarieTimewalker13 I have a quick question-I see you also have British edition...I just received mine, after having to return American edition to library. My British edition does not have a family tree, like the American edition does in the beginning of the book. I‘m so confused as to why-Does yours have it? (edited) 1mo
RatherTooFondofBooks My copy doesn‘t have a family tree in either, which is a shame when the family is quite complicated to keep track of. Are you enjoying the book? I think it‘s a wonderful novel so far. 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 The book is amazing, I‘m almost done, but I think it‘s so sad that the British edition has neither the family tree nor the map end pages. I‘m going to post the Inside of the American edition later. I had to purchase an American copy. This is a lesson learned.I‘m not sure how I could decipher the difference online, however, when purchasing it. I‘ll post to alert other people. That‘s prob why the American copy is a bit more expensive. 1mo

Daisy Jones & The Six | Taylor Jenkins Reid

Just finished spent the entire afternoon listening (whilst reading along) to Daisy Jones & The Six and I completely and utterly adored it! The audio is brilliant and really adds to the book. I will write a full review once I've got my thoughts together but for now I loved it and I highly recommend it. #amreading #mustread

I‘m having a lie-in this morning and part-reading part-listening to I Heart Hawaii by Lindsey Kelk! I‘ve loved this series and this book is just as good. 😍 #amreading

Birdsong28 I will be reading this today as well!!! I absolutely love this series and the author. 😍📚📖 2mo
RatherTooFondofBooks It‘s so good! I‘m sad this series is coming to an end but I‘m happy this final book is shaping up to be a great send-off. I hope you enjoy it as much as I am. 😍📖 2mo

On my blog (link in bio) today I‘ve posted about my 20 Books of Summer 2019 challenge. Here is the stack of books I‘ve chosen! I will be reading other books as well (on kindle and audio) but I want to make an effort to read some physical books! Have you read any of these? Where do you recommend that I start? #SummerReading #TBR

Gnora My mom and I listened to In the Unlikely Event together. That was an experience I will never forget. Fantastic book. 2mo
jb72 I‘ve not read any of those. Cool challenge though. I‘ve read two Rooney short stories. One I liked okay and one I didn‘t. 2mo
Ericalambbrown I just finished The Goldfinch today. I adored it and it‘s going to stick with me for a long time. 💕 2mo

RatherTooFondofBooks @Gnora That sounds like a lovely way to share a novel. I might look out for the audio book so I can listen and read. I‘m really looking forward to finally reading this, it‘s been on my bookcase for a while now. 2mo
RatherTooFondofBooks @jb72 Thank you. I read Conversations with Friends recently and didn‘t enjoy it all that much but I did love Rooney‘s writing style so wanted to give Normal People a go. I‘m hoping I‘ll like it more. 2mo
RatherTooFondofBooks @Ericalambbrown I‘m a big fan of Donna Tartt so I‘ve been really keen to get to The Goldfinch, it feels like it‘ll be a real treat. I‘m glad you enjoyed it so much. 2mo
ShyBookOwl Nice stack! I can't plan ahead like that. I'm such a mood reader! 2mo
RatherTooFondofBooks @ShyBookOwl Thank you. I‘m a mood reader too so sticking to this TBR will be a challenge. I‘m hoping I‘ll manage it as I‘m keen to read all of these books. 2mo
Megabooks Great choices! I have tried three times to finish The Goldfinch. The prose is beautiful, but I couldn‘t lock into the plot correctly. Judy Blume books are always good for summer! 2mo
RatherTooFondofBooks @Megabooks Thank you! That‘s a shame about The Goldfinch. I‘m excited to read the Judy Blume - I feel sure this is going to be a great read! 😊 2mo

I'm currently reading A Modern Family by Helga Flatland and am very much enjoying it. It's a family drama with each chapter coming from a different sibling's perspective and it's so true to life. #amreading

All Is Not Forgotten | Wendy Walker

I finished this a few days ago but am still struggling to put into words how incredible I found this novel. I'm fascinated by the treatment idea but it's so much more than that. A thriller that will stay with me for a long time to come.

A really inspiring memoir about recovering from a traumatic brain injury. Polly Williamson is so open and honest about her recovery and that makes for an incredible read.

My Favourite Manson Girl | Alison Umminger
post image
Pickpick

This novel is an interesting look at the way girls can be lost. It's told from the viewpoint of a 15yr old girl who is feeling pushed out at home so she runs away to LA to spend the summer with her older sister. These is glamour, seediness, a brief love affair and a sense of growing up.

Just started reading this short ebook and am really enjoying it. Milly Johnson wrote it to help a woman who has been through a living nightmare - all proceeds of this book are going to charity. It's only 99p and is a good read.

I've just finished reading this and have conflicted thoughts about it. Has anyone else read it? How did it make you feel?
