If It Rains | Jennifer L. Wright
post image

Kathryn‘s favorite book is The Wizard of Oz, and her journey somewhat mirrors Dorothy‘s (although much grittier). I enjoyed spotting all the Oz references (both book and movie, although this novel takes place in 1935, before the movie was made. That explains the silver shoes instead of the Ruby Slippers, which were invented for Technicolor.)

Part of my #WeekendReading.

IamIamIam Well, hello!! 👀 Recently I downloaded the Nook app on my phone so I could start Oz from the beginning! 1d
rubyslippersreads @IamIamIam Enjoy your trip down the Yellow Brick Road! 🌪🌈👠 1d
IamIamIam @rubyslippersreads Thanks!! I got through the first 2 books and got distracted so I'm excited to get going again! 1d

Dinosaur Christmas | Jerry Pallotta

I had to show off my favorite Christmas gift, my Xmas Rex from @BookieMary 🎄🦖🎁 So @DinoMom you‘re not the only one with a dinosaur on your mantel. 😄

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate! #merrychristmas #happyholidays

rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen Merry Christmas to you too. I‘m afraid your package might be late; USPS tracking is only showing me info from December 15, when it was moving from one facility to another, so I‘m not sure what the status is. 😕 1mo

rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen I finally heard from USPS. Your package arrived in Canada today and is “in transit to the destination.” So I guess it‘ll be a New Year‘s gift. 😊 4w
LeahBergen Oh, goody! It must have been taking its own little Xmas holiday somewhere along the way. 😆 4w
rubyslippersreads @LeahBergen Here‘s the latest: “Your item could not be delivered on December 30, 2021 at 8:00 pm in CANADA due to force majeure conditions.” I assume that‘s weather??? 😏 4w
LeahBergen 😆😆 The tracking has actually shown up on my Canada Post account. I see it‘s sitting in Vancouver (Richmond) right now and yes, they‘ve been having all sorts of weather problems. The flooding closed down roads and rail there so they have a backlog on shipping. Once it moves from there it usually arrives here in a day or two. No worries! We can watch it creep along. 😆 3w

The tagged book is my #1, always and forever. Some of the rest are rereads, but they‘re all books I loved this year. #Top21od21

It‘s obvious I ❤️ vintage fiction, but I see a lot of new books on everyone else‘s lists that tempt me to branch out in 2022.

Thanks for tagging me, @Nute and @Ruthiella 😊

I don‘t know who‘s already been tagged, so I‘ll invite anyone who wants to play, because I‘m so curious to see everyone‘s faves.

LeahBergen Oh, Double Spell! Also known as Twin Spell, right? That was a childhood favourite of mine and I own a very cool edition. 😊 1mo
LeahBergen And I‘m glad to see that someone else will list as many oldies as I will. 😆 1mo

Little Souls: A Novel | Sandra Dallas

This novel about the influenza epidemic in 1918 Colorado is fascinating so far, but there‘s one line I just can‘t relate to.

The two sisters often tell each other “Dream of clowns,” the way most of us would say “Pleasant dreams.” It‘s because they have fond memories of a childhood trip to the circus, but clowns are the last thing I want to dream of! 😳 #coulrophobia #ARC #HappyHalloween
