“How do we remember the moments when we fall apart?” 💔🔥
This book came at exact the right time… a gentle, quietly funny novel about the lengths we will go for the ones we love. ❤️
A fun quick read for those anyone else passionate about the 49ers !!❤️🏈 (not in Litsy database)
“Their eyes hold nothing back, whether it‘s love or heartbreak or admiration.” - Ron Burns
“The Dogs of Ron Burns: A Tribute to the Dogs of 911” is exactly that… beautiful portraits and heartfelt stories of these amazing dogs.
Pictured is Sky, one of the first to enter the Pentagon on 9/11. ❤️💔
This is a gem! The quirky heroine, who works at an IKEA type of store, comforts herself with her strict routines and ongoing creation of the Very Nice Box. Then the arrival of a new store manager upends her life… Shades of “Eleanor Oliphant”, but I liked this even more. And what an ending! Shoutout to #TheNovelNeighbor bookstore and #CurrentlyReading podcast for putting this on my radar 😊❤️
What a fun summer read! It was exactly as the author intended… a”pop song” of a book. I think I smiled all the way through. Perfect for fans of Jurassic Park, The Meg, King Kong… with a lighter touch. 😊👍🏻
Another Edgar award nominee and now one of my favorite books of the year. Richly drawn characters, great representation, small town politics, racial tensions and a murder or two. Written with a great sense of snark by the co-creator of Deadpool 😂
Finally finished the last book in this series about an Irish detective during the Troubles… “finally” because I wasn‘t ready for it to end! Tough, gritty, with a strong sense of the times… just so good. 👍🏻
Loved this inspiring true story of a woman who found a way to flourish, and taught others to do the same, during the Taliban regime in the late 90‘s in Afghanistan. All credit to the “Strong Sense of Place” podcast for recommending this one 👍🏻
I lost my perfect boy last month 💔 A thank you to this warm and wonderful community for providing some comfort ❤️
A gentle read... just what I needed right now ❤️
I started and stopped a few lit fic novels for the #foodandlit #ethiopia challenge in March, so ended up reading through this cookbook from the Ethiopian born author instead. So glad I finally did... beautiful photos and vignettes from his life in Harlem. Several recipes are also infused with Ethiopian flavors. ❤️👍🏻
“Not-knowing is where hope and art and possibility and invention come from. It is not-knowing, that old old thing, that allows everything to be renewed.”
Love this memoir... love this author‘s writing. ❤️
I find Churchill fascinating, though admittedly problematic, and read everything I can about him. This is now a favorite due to the glimpses into everyday life during his first year in office. Highly recommend on audio 👍🏻
We love pho and finally landed on a recipe from Pinterest that hits all the right notes! This cookbook assured me that we are doing the right things, and offered plenty of inspiration for a “someday” trip to Vietnam. ❤️
Pitch perfect, if you‘ll pardon the pun 😊
I picked this up for a reading challenge, as its narrator is a young girl on the autism spectrum. She desperately wants to pitch for a baseball team and starts writing to her favorite major league knuckleballer as a way to sort through her feelings. But then... he starts writing back. ❤️
This was the first box I ordered from the “Treat Your Shelf” subscription service provided by the indie bookstore The Book Shelf in Thomasville, Georgia... and I‘m really glad I ordered 3 months worth. Fun, quirky mystery with a strong female protagonist set in 1950s London. Perfect!! ❤️👍🏻
Finished the next-to-latest Louise Penny... this is now one of my favorites of hers. Reading about Gamache and Three Pines feels especially poignant around the holidays ❤️ Now onto a book that I‘ve heard nothing but good about! Continuing on with #dashingdecember!!
Like many, I have started and stopped more books this year than I can remember. This was exactly what I needed. Quietly strong characters who work through their struggles, all set against the backdrop of the brewing industry. I may have to crack open a Moon and just read it again! ❤️
And so it begins....
