The beginning of a book, the end of the Bronco game (an actual win! 😲), and a warm blankie...I love Sunday afternoon.

I've been in a slump ever since reading The Spriing Girls a couple weeks ago so I decided to dip into the original. I still love spending time with Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy.

I finally picked up my copy of this gorgeous book and I've returned to it over and over today to swoon over the stunning artwork. Jim Kay's wonderful illustrations have taken me back to the wonder I felt when read these books for the first time. 💜💚🧡💙❤

Susannah It‘s gorgeous! I can‘t wait to get it. 2d

It seems inconceivable (🤣 I crack myself up!)- given how much I love this movie- but I just cannot get into this book. I guess memoirs are officially not a genre I enjoy and I just have to stop trying. Back this goes to the library.

I've just started this and already Veronica and Stoker strongly remind me of Amelia Peabody and her Dear Emerson. Am I off base or do others see that too?

I wish I'd bailed on this. As a retelling I think this was bad. While the girls have the same names their characters and actions are so different that I couldn't see any of the original in this. I started to enjoy it as a story of it's own but it was so bleak and depressing that it was a struggle. Finally it just.. stopped.Everyone's storylines and concerns laid out but left completely up in the air. I was quite disappointed.

I'm having to read this book in the browser because I keep getting this notification when I try to open it in the kindle app. I *am* connected to the internet and I have tried restarting my phone (the totality of my technical trouble shooting knowledge 🤪). I've used Overdrive and opened the book in kindle many times previously so I'm frustrated.
Does any one have any tips?

Aimeesue Maybe delete Overdrive and redownload the app. Or it could be the library that's having connectivity issues. 3w
bookandbedandtea @Aimeesue Thanks for the suggestion! It didn't work- so I'm going to assume the library is having issues 🤷‍♀️- but I appreciate your help. 😊 3w
Aimeesue @bookandbedandtea Good luck! Tech issues are so aggravating! Hope it resolves soon. 3w

On the one hand, her account of her childhood is extremely interesting- especially as it's soooo different from mine- if occasionally disturbing. On the other hand, as soon as I stop listening to it I lose a lot of my interest. I had the same problem with Educated and a few other memoirs. I'm starting to think this genre just doesn't do it for me

1- Four. But three of those were 1 day stops on a cruise long ago.
2- Mountains!
3- Italy. Positano is my first choice but pretty much anywhere in that country would be fine with me.
4- So many but I'm partial to books set in Colorado because I don't encounter them very often and it's interesting to read about my own backyard.

What if George Washington had become king of the US? I loved this alternate history & its ideas of US culture under a monarchy. It felt delightfully gossipy, like getting a peek behind the curtain. I was invested in Beatrice's, Sam's, & Nina's stories & was eager to see how it all resolved. Then it ended! I had NO IDEA this was only the first in a planned series. It ended w multiple cliffhangers & I never like those. Still I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Peddler410 Oh man! I HATE getting to the end of a book and realizing there‘s a series coming 😔 I just bought this and I planned on reading it next ... now I might wait a bit. Bummer 3w
bookandbedandtea @Peddler410 It's good! But if I'd known it was the start of a series I'd have waited to read it. 3w

This was REALLY angsty. Birdie is a champion over-thinker. I thought I was an over-thinker but she leaves me in the dust. I did get a little annoyed with that but at the same time she felt very real so it was probably a good thing. Daniel, Jiji, Mona, and Grampa Hugh were delightful. Over all I liked this even though it was darker than I expected.

A cozy mystery set in a picturesque English village peopled by interesting characters- especially our sleuth in the person of a dashing vicar/former MI5 operative! I quite enjoyed this. One quibble: when we found out who dunnit, the culprit and the method were a little convoluted. Still, I'll give the next in the series a try at some point. 😁👍

This was super slow and the characters were uncompelling. Despite that I was interested in the dual storylines and the descriptions of Portugal so I kept going. And going. And it was ok. Right up until the end. Jo's choosing to believe an idea which had plenty of evidence against it, and the lack of tying in ANY other of the child abductions that were mentioned, completely annoyed me. 😠

I had a few issues with this (spoilers in comment) but over all this was extremely enjoyable.The good: Olive's family was collectively my favorite character; the descriptions of scenery and food had me longing for a vacation and/or a large family; I'm always in the mood for a happy ending. There was lots to like here. 👍

bookandbedandtea I wish Dane hadn't turned out to be such a jackass and the evil mastermind behind their hatred of each other. When it looked like it was mutual misunderstandings and that they were working through their issues I was much more impressed. But learning that they were played by his brother felt like a cop out on the authors' part. 1mo

So I've apparently managed to go 20 odd years without reading a romance book wherein the male lead shares a name with my son. Now that I am reading such a book I'm a little squicked. 🥴

When I'm not reminded of the dude's name I'm quite enjoying this. 👍

marleed Oh that‘s funny. My son had an unusual name for his age group but now little kids have it. It‘s always a head turner when I hear someone else with his name! 2mo
bookandbedandtea @marleed Kind of the same here. "Ethan" apparently became more popular a few years after he was born because he never encountered another one in his grade throughout his school years but a few years behind him there were quite a few. ?‍♀️ Funny how names go in cycles. 1mo
