How frustrating to get 162 pages into a library book and then find this! 🤦‍♀️

Only 30 pages in and already right into this book. I think I heard it was long-listed for Canada Reads.

Bring Up the Bodies | Hilary Mantel
Pickpick

Absolutely loved this book. Left me thirsty for more. I think there will be a third book in the series eventually. Meanwhile, maybe I'll have to give Philippa Gregory a try.

Really enjoying this one so far! It's so nice to sit outside in this 32 degree heat with a good book while my kids happily play with their water table.

CaitlinSiem It's a toasty on there today! (Had to google the Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion for that, I won't even pretend) 6y

The Arrangement | Ashley Warlick

"The elements that mattered most were the simple ones: butter, salt, a thick plate of white china and a delicate glass, the music faint, the feel of paper in her hand, and the knowledge that there was more, always more book to read, more wine if she liked it, some cold fruit in the refrigerator..."

celtichik @Ncostell this was the book 6y
Ncostell Great, thanks! I need to check this out! 6y

Stayed up late finishing Wolf Hall, and the sequel Bring Up The Bodies is due to be delivered later today. Can't wait that long to start another book though!

Isn't that the truth?

LisaReads For sure! I will never live long enough to read everything on my TBR list...and Litsy is not helping my cause as I keep adding more to it every day! 7y
ihugducks I know! If I think about this too much, I get really sad. 7y

Margaret Atwood is one of my very favourite authors. I need to re-read Alias Grace one of these days....

Very interesting. Will definitely try some of the strategies recommended in this book.
