Bitter Greens | Kate Forsyth

Pickpick

Part historical fiction and part fairy tale, Kate Forsyth weaves together the story of Charlotte-Rose de la Force‘s banishment from the court of the Sun King with the story of Rapunzel. Kate Reading does an excellent job as narrator-two thumbs up!

1. I always set the same goal of 52 books/year. I‘ve read 51 books year to date, which is way faster than previous years, so I‘m really excited about that! 😃. I work retail so my reading pace will slack off in a couple of months, but I‘m hoping to read around 65 books by year‘s end. 🤞🏽
2. Get back to 2-3 workouts/week, finish unpacking, send out holiday cards, & keep my sanity during the holiday shopping season.

1. Tagged above. Started and stopped for what feels like a bazillion times. 🤪
2. Game of Thrones because I find myself re-reading the series whenever the next book is released.
3. About 700 some according to GR- shocked that it isn‘t more.
4. Bad Blood on audio. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
5. I‘m really late posting this so no one.

Better pacing in this book versus book 1. I‘m on tenterhooks, waiting for my library hold on book 3 to become available- the wait time says, “available soon”, but I need it now! 😀

I found the pacing uneven at times, but otherwise it was a satisfying read and I‘m intrigued to see where Nona and her fellow sisters go from here.

A fascinating expose of a Silicon Valley fraud that went on for over a decade. I was equal parts incredulous and in disbelief that so many people, many of them powerful and world-famous, were duped by Elizabeth Holmes and her company, Theranos for so long. Highly recommend.

Earlier this week I was telling a co-worker that maybe I had “outgrown” fantasy novels because I‘ve been having a heck of a time finding a book that grabbed my attention from the get-go, then this little gem pops up! So glad because fantasy novels were a staple for me from my teens until a few years ago. 💕📚🧚🏼‍♀️🙌🏾🧝🏽‍♀️

Last night was unseasonably cool and comfortable so hubby and I were able to take advantage of the porch outside our bedroom. I stayed up waaaay too late to finish and I‘m still processing all the feels this book gave me.

The latest installment in one of my all-time favorite fantasy series, The Black Company. Thoroughly entertaining read and I was (and still am) a little sad that I‘m done. I‘d forgotten how much I enjoy the characters Cook has created. I‘m very tempted to re-read the series from beginning to end, but my TBR pile keeps staring me in the face...decisions, decisions! 🤔📚😊📚

Andrew65 This looks good, I do not know this series. Stacked! 4w
cjk @andrew65 A friend of mine didn‘t really care for it, so please let me know what you think. 😊 (edited) 4w

My Life in France | Julia Child, Alex Prud'homme
post image
Pickpick

I became intrigued with Julia Child after re-watching the movie, Julie and Julia. I saw the movie when it was first released, but it didn‘t make an impression on me at the time. My Life in France is a charming account of Julia and her husband, Paul‘s life overseas and a fascinating look into the evolution of one of the world‘s most influential cooks.

cj82487 I just recently watched the movie on Hulu. I'll have to put this on my TBR 1mo

Finally getting around to reading the newest addition to the Chronicles of the Black Company. This is one of my favorite fantasy series. I first discovered it as a sophomore in college and it has held up over many re-reads through the years. Can‘t wait to dive into this after work tonight! 😍📚💯👍🏽
