Onto my next read. Colleen Hoover hasn't let me down yet, and as my twins' birthdays are November 9th, less than a month away, this seems fitting.

Wildly_Bookish I'm hooked already. Just started tonight. Wish I could stay up all night and finish it, but work in the a.m. means I should probably sleep a little. 🤣🤣 5d

I LOVED this book. I picked it back up while at a football game yesterday, less than 50 pages in, and finished it last night. This series is so fantastic so far. I love the characters and the world they live in. I can't wait to start Finale later today, although I'll be sad to say goodbye.

A Discovery of Witches | Deborah E. Harkness

I really enjoyed this book, although I do have the tendency to see the best. After finishing I saw SO many negative reviews on Goodreads, and I do see how some people would view the relationship between Diana and Matthew as unhealthy. I however, saw it as two people in love, fighting together for that love, instead of Matthew being a controlling douche. There were a million Twilight similarities.

I know that it's not quite October yet... but I found this beauty at Goodwill today ($2.49!) and couldn't pass it up. It's thick and the pages are heavy and glossy. The red designs on the spine are velvety. It is just so fun. I can't wait for December to be able to read this to my 5 year old.

Scored big at Goodwill today! All of the top left picture are on my TBR already. I've read most of the Pretty Little Liars books a while back. And the Middle School & Riordan books are birthday presents for my twins! Super stoked.

But if I wind up dead, my husband murdered me because I'm not supposed to be buying anymore books. 🤣🤣

A Discovery of Witches | Deborah E. Harkness
post image

So I'm reading this book, and I'm REALLY enjoying it so far. I'm only 117 pages in, but I'm thinking it's great so far. My only complaint is this: WHITE SPACE. The margins are very narrow, the font is tiny, and the line spacing is thin. Which leaves minimal white space. And there are 579 pages.

Does anybody else struggle with books like this? I could understand if it was a mass market sized paperback, but it's one of the larger sized hardcovers.

A Discovery of Witches | Deborah E. Harkness

I just remembered that this bad boy is due back to the library on October 1st! It has 579 pages. Wonder if I can finish it by Tuesday?

I'm not normally one to pick up one book before I've finished another, but as I'm only 37 pages into Legendary, I guess I'll have to make an exception.

Definitely a tear jerker. Following Kate and Tully's story and friendship was fun and sad and entertaining. The mother daughter relationships that are explored felt real and raw. I hear there is a sequel to this book and I'm very curious about it. I thought things wrapped up neatly, if not happily, so I wonder about the angle the sequel takes. Kristin Hannah did it again. The emotional rollercoaster she puts you on is heartfelt and painful.

Firefly Lane is taking me longer than I expected it to. Two of my kids were home sick from school yesterday, but they're feeling better today, so more reading time for me! I'm hoping to finish soon because my local library called and said they have Finale by Stephanie Garber for me. Since it's a newer book it's a 14 day loan and I still need to read Legendary before I can complete the series with Finale.

I loved this book. It felt like reading something familiar yet completely new. It's hard to explain. Maybe it's that Stephanie Garber's style of writing sounds like I would write, or like I was reading something from a friend. The world of Caraval was unlike anything I have experienced and the storyline kept me guessing until the end. I can't wait to continue with the series.

What a great and terrible book. It's hard to look at your life through the eyes of someone else. When Alma talks about how she is simultaneously conspicuous and inconspicuous, I wonder how many times I've unintentionally made someone feel that way.

The loss Alma and Maribel experience is one that hits me close to home. I know the loss of a father and the pain I saw in my mother because of it. It takes immense strength to go on.

"We fear it, yet most of us fear more than anything that it may take someone other than ourselves. For the greatest fear of death is always that it will pass us by. And leave us there alone."

It's embarrassing really, how much I cried over this book. I feel like everybody knows and loves an Ove, or at least I do. I liked the authors writing style and I'll be checking out more of his works.

Beneath a Scarlet Sky | Mark T. Sullivan

Pickpick

Pino Lella's story deserves to be heard. The courage it took to guide Jewish people over the Alps to safety is amazing. The risk he took by spying for the Allies is terrifyingly brave. The suffering he endured was appalling, and he wasn't even in an OT camp. To have your best friend, your brother, and almost everyone else, think you're a Nazi traitor, and still have the faith to pick up your head and do what needs to be done is inspiring.

cherinium I'm listening the the audiobook. Boy, did it have me ugly crying on my way home from work on Saturday. This story has been so upsetting that I can only take small chunks at a time. It's unbelievable that all of those things happened to one person. What a courageous young man he was! 1mo
Wildly_Bookish I feel the ugly crying! It happened to me many times throughout this book. No person should have to go through these things. And then to hold it in for 60 years is unthinkable. 1mo

I'm really enjoying this so far. It's pulled me in to Pino Lella's life in less than 50 pages (out of over 500).

I've accidentally been stuck on historical fiction, specifically surrounding World War Two. I say accidentally because I didn't search these books specifically but I have read Winter Garden, The Tattooist of Auschwitz, A Gentleman In Moscow, and The Nightingale all within the last few months.

I haven't been disappointed yet.

“As an archeologist, when Thomsen divided the ages of man into Stone, Bronze, and Iron, naturally enough, he did so in accordance with the physical tools that defined each epoch. But what of man‘s spiritual development? What of his moral development? I tell you, they progressed along the very same lines. In the Stone Age, the ideas in the caveman‘s head were as blunt as the club in his hand; they were as rough as the flint from which he struck..."

Wildly_Bookish "...a spark. In the Age of Bronze, when a canny few discovered the science of metallurgy, how long did it take for them to fashion coins, crowns, and swords? That unholy trinity to which the common man was enslaved for the next one thousand years.” Mishka paused to consider the ceiling. “Then came the Age of Iron—and with it the steam engine, the printing press, and the gun." 1mo
Wildly_Bookish ..."Here was a very different trinity, indeed. For while these tools had been developed by the Bourgeoisie to further their own interests, it was through the engine, the press, and the pistol that the Proletariat began to free itself from labor, ignorance, and tyranny.” 1mo

If you want a feel good, make you cry, happy-sad book, this is the one. Fantastic. I had to read it before I see the movie, and I wasn't disappointed. Enzo tells Denny's story in a heartwrenching way, based on what he is able to learn from one sided phone conversations, people speaking secrets in his presence, and watching television. My heart hurt for Denny non-stop.

I find myself looking at my dog, Duke (pictured), wondering...

The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller

My August reads. My favorites were: The Song of Achilles, Daisy Jones and the Six, It Ends With Us, Winter Garden, Verity, Stepsister, Without Merit, and An American Marriage.

I did not like The Graphic Novel of A Wrinkle in Time.

Second Time Around was just blah.

The Guest Book, I DNF.

And Percy Jackson was good, for an 8 year old.

I DNF'd The Guest Book by Sarah Blake. It's the first time I didn't force myself to continue. But as the members of #MBC say, life is too short to read books you're not enjoying. The kicker is, if I could get through it, I'm sure I would love it.

I picked up my next library loan to start. The Art Of Racing In The Rain by Garth Stein. Hopefully it lives up to the hype.
