I'm finding this fascinating. I'm going to flip my classroom and follow some of the advice in this treasure. Highly recommend this.

Gone with the Wind | Margareth Mitchell

Enjoying this far more than I expected. Watched the film adaptation years ago but much prefer the non-Hollywood characterization.

Circe | Madeline Miller

Pickpick

My favorite read of 2019. Started slow but thoroughly enjoyed the retelling of The Odyssey from the perspective of the beautiful witch Circe. As soon as I finished, I circled back and reread the first several chapters.

The Girl Who Chased the Moon | Sarah Addison Allen
Pickpick

This was the pick of a person in my International book exchange group and I would never have selected it in my own. Frankly, I don‘t like the title. But it was a really fun read! I‘m do glad I was invited to share in the magic of Mullably. The imagery and sensory details were exquisite. I now think if people in terms of color and smell. Loved this charmer.

Desirable Sister | Taslim Burkowicz
Panpan

Great story line but too linear and one-dimensional. Two generations of Indian immigrants living in Canada deal with the effects dark and light skin tones in 2 generations of sisters.

The Magic Diary | Pat LaMarche
Pickpick

I fell in love with Ms. Genevieve Flynn immediately. The refreshing, witty, and authentic voice of this adorable teenager is captured on the pages of her 'magic diary.' The magic journal helps her cope with emotions during treatment for a relapse of cancer. Genevieve is 'visited' by historical personalities who give her (and her readers) valuable history lessons that help her come to terms with her illness and her own place in history.

“Among readers of European fiction, the character names in Russian novels are notorious for their difficulty. Not content to rely on given and family names, we Russians like to make use of homophobia, patronymics, and an array of diminutives. Such that a single character in one of our novels may be referred to four different ways in as many pages.”

New pen pal style book club. 12 members- each picks a book and journals thoughts, questions, quotes, etc. At end of each month, all members mail book and journal to next person. 12 books, 12 journals, and 12 new pen pals. We have four groups of 12 already created and started. Need three more members to finalize 5th group. Interested?

I found this gem when I visited bookstore in Paris and read it in the flight home. I enjoy reading and chess, and this story did not disappoint. It wasn‘t the story I expected, but thoroughly enjoyed.

Gentleman in Moscow | Amor Towles

Listening on Audible while hiking. Really enjoying so far. Love little Nina: “For the virtuous who have lost their way, the fates often provide a guide. “
