In between the start of school and skating for the little guy, planning a birthday party and being swamped at work I have had absolutely no time to read. I'm hoping the #OutstandingOctober #Readathon forces me to find some time for my books! Hoping to finish Before We Were Yours and get started on whatever book I choose to read next.

Thanks for hosting @Andrew65

Andrew65 Hope this helps for you. Good luck 😊👍 1mo

Roy Digs Dirt | David Shannon
post image
Pickpick

A simple and quick picture book about Roy - the dog who digs dirt. Both our 20 month old and our 4 year old enjoyed the book. Lots to look at in the pictures and it is a cute story. Our 4 year old could practice some of his reading with this book because it is repetitive. He also had quite a few laughs throughout the book.

Not much time to read today but I'm going to sneak in a bit while I wake myself up with this #IcedCoffee. I'm excited to start the tagged book for my #bookspin . Side note: They are tearing down the forest behind our house for yet another housing development 😭 😭 😭 - We didn't move out to the country for them to take down all the green space!

The Exiles: A Novel | Christina Baker Kline
post image
Pickpick

This book is definitely a pick for me. A story about women being displaced due to the circumstances they were born into and how some prevailed while others didn't. A book full of strong women where you learn about the convict system and transport as well as medicine in the 1800s. I only wish Mathinna's story line tied in a bit more to the others.

Finally sweater weather - my favourite time to read outside. Taking advantage of a cool and cloudy evening for some backyard reading. Decided to read The Exiles next a few days ago and I'm really enjoying it so far. I'm enjoying the writing and I don't really have an inclination as to where the story is heading (I love that).

Jumping into #bookspin and #doublebookspin in September. The autumn is not only my favourite season but it is my favourite season to read in. Nothing like sitting on the deck with a book and a hot mug of tea. We are gearing up for back to school for our eldest so hopefully I can squeeze some reading in.

The Rent Collector | Camron Wright

While the writing left a little to be desired the story and the messages the book portrays are important. Learning about how the people of Cambodia live in Stung Meanchey (the dump) and how resilient they are gives you hope for society. Although there was very little about the Khmer Rouge - it is always sad to read about - especially when we see the same in other countries to this day.

The Birthday Boys | Beryl Bainbridge
post image
Pickpick

An excellent historical fiction book about Scott's Antarctic expedition. Each chapter is the voice of one of the five men who made it to the Pole and how they viewed the voyage. You really get to know each of these men. Even though you most likely know how it ends it is still a great read. It is a perfect length for the story being told and makes you appreciate how much harder this expedition would have been at the time.

Things My Son Needs to Know about the World | Fredrik Backman, Neil Smith

Mehso-so

Finished my #bookspin this evening and it was ok. I love that he was able to write a book that his son will read when he is older. I liked what he was doing with the train of thought type of writing but found it could get a bit repetitive at times. I was expecting it to either be a bit funnier or full of life lessons. It wasn't a bad book but it was just ok for me.

Another stop at a bookstore while out running some errands. Picked up a few books for myself, a book for little girl and a learn to read set for little guy. We have the Pete the Cat step into reading set for our little guy and he loves them but I feel it is more memorization at this point since he has read them so much. Figured another set couldn't hurt.

Our second package of books from the #library for the #summerreadingclub and the little guy is quite excited! We read Emergency Helicopters and The Show and Tell Surprise (Clifford the Big Red Dog). Emergency Helicopters is more of a first reader book where it concentrates on the kids learning some words - less about emergency helicopters themselves. Little guy loved Clifford - but who doesn't?!

The Lake House | Kate Morton
post image
Mehso-so

While I still enjoyed this book it is definitely my least favourite book from Kate Morton (that I've read). As always, the writing was excellent but I found the story hard to get into and even when it did pick up a bit I found it to be somewhat predictable. It lacked some of the magic I found reading her other books. I also wasn't a fan of the main character being a detective - that might be where some of the magic was lost for me.

We got to pick up the first book bundle today for the library summer reading club and we are very excited. We got 6 books for our 18 month old and 6 books for our 4 year old. I'm thankful that both were able to sign up since you can only pick a picture book option or a first reader option for each bundle and I feel like a 4 year old enjoys both picture and first reader books.

Another beautiful evening to spend some time outside reading with a cold tea. This time a delicious cold kiwi tea. Really hoping I can put a dent in this book tonight as I'm a little over halfway through and it's starting to pick up. I found the beginning of the book a bit harder to get into than I usually do for a Kate Morton book.

So very excited to be able to pick up the summer reading club welcome kit for both of our kiddos at the library. Each week we can pick up a bundle (or two) of books for each kid to take home. They collect coins with each bundle of books read which they will get to spend at the library at the end of the summer. Couldn't be more excited as I see a glimmer of hope in a return to normalcy for the kids!

I really enjoyed this book about four generations of a Korean family living in Japan (for the most part). I knew so little on the history of Japan and their treatment of Koreans - it was absolutely eye opening. So much history in this book and it was wonderfully written. The story had a natural flow and I could have kept on reading.

A simplistic view of one polar bear's journey from just before pregnancy to her cubs becoming adults. Although the author didn't touch to much on the fragility of the Arctic until the second half - it was a good read. Sadly, it seems that a polar bear's survival is based on quite a bit of luck with all the environmental concerns they now face. Quick read as I finished it in an evening.

A Ladder to the Sky | John Boyne
post image
Pickpick

I loved this book. I couldn't put it down and was always wondering what was going to happen next. It isn't actually a thriller but I'd say it has some psychological thriller aspects to it. The characters were fascinating - and many of them villainous in one way or another. Even though some of the events were predictable once you figure out who Maurice is, it was a great read. John Boyne is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors.

CBee It‘s probably one of my favorite books ever and I just read it a few months ago! 6mo

While I enjoyed the last 50 or so pages of the book the rest didn't come through for me. We were jumping all over the place so the story didn't have a good flow. It was written well in the sense that I felt like I was in a 70 year olds head and reading the ramblings that go on within. It seemed there were only a few pages that actually talked about the Lebanese Civil Wars and I didn't really see how it had shaped the main character.

rockpools I think that‘s fair. I keep meaning to go back and try again with this one - didn‘t get through it on first attempt for the reasons you mention. 6mo

Mistborn: The Final Empire | Brandon Sanderson

I quite enjoyed this read. A fantasy world based on metals and alloys is such an interesting world. Little romance (although I can picture more of it in book 2) and some descriptive battles/fights. Just as I was starting to feel like the middle part of the book was starting to drag on - the writer moved along in the story line - it was perfect timing (for me). It was a good book to re-enter the fantasy genre with.

It was a beautiful day to get some reading in yesterday and we have another couple on the way. I'm about halfway through book 1 right now and still enjoying it. I'm happy to see there isn't really much romance (at least right now) in the book - I don't need a romance story in every book I read! I am hoping the story starts to move along soon as the balls and such are growing a bit tiresome.

Jang Jin-sung is a poet and cadre in Kim Jong-il‘s regime before making his escape. It is a well written book that almost seems like a fictional one through most of it. Was quite eye opening to see how much North Korea uses psychological warfare on it's own people as well as the rest of the world. Everything is so carefully planned out. Really enjoyed this book!

The Nickel Boys: A Novel | Colson Whitehead

This was a good book for me but more because it is based on a true story of one of these academies! The writing didn't grasp me as much as the The Underground Railroad did. The broken justice system sends boys to Nickel Academy so that they can be 'reformed'. They are put to work and abused during their stay. Important story about a part of history that needs to be told. I loved the last chapter but the rest was good, not great but good.
