The Starless Sea | Erin Morgenstern
post image

#BookReport - Bailed on Wuthering Heights audio, couldn‘t keep my head in the game. Will try again later. Finished All You Can Ever Know. 3 🌟 and decided to keep reading Lilli de Jong for #Lilliread.

#WeeklyForecast - Hope to finish Tea, Tiramisu and Tough Guys on audio and finish Shotgun Lovesongs on Kindle which I am loving. Nickolas Butler is now a must read author for me. Starless sea arrives Tuesday and I know I will dive right in.

megnews I tried to read Wuthering Heights for years. I could never get past the first chapter. I feel like you need to draw a family tree to keep track of people. Definitely couldn‘t have done audio. Just too much for me. I finally let go of trying completely though it was hard and took awhile. You feel like it‘s one of those classics you SHOULD read. I hope it works out better for you at some point. (edited) 4d
Cinfhen Can‘t wait to hear your thoughts on the new Morgenstern and I LOVED 4d

At the beginning of the year I challenged myself to read at least one non fiction choice a month. These are the ones I‘ve read so far. 2 more to go. What has been your favorite non fiction book this year? #GratefulReads

@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

TheBookAddict Becoming was my favorite NF book of 2019. I do have to admit that I probably only read 3 other NF books this year. Which one was your favorite? 1w

Kdgordon88 @Soubhiville Thanks for the recs! Becoming Nicole is on my tbr but haven‘t heard of the other two. (edited) 1w
Chrissyreadit I love the goal of one a month. I love non fiction, but mine take so much longer to read and I need to be more awake when I read it. 1w
Billypar I enjoyed The Library Book. But I think my favorite of the year is either Mary Roach's Stiff or Joan Didion's Blue Nights. Both about death, but the similarities end there! I'm a little afraid of reading the one you tagged in this post, but I want to eventually. 1w

Little Faith | Nickolas Butler
post image

#BookReport for last week 1)Next Year in Havana was a well done audio book. Slow in a few spots but a good story and taught me so much about Cuban history. 3 1/2 🌟 2)Little Faith was so good. A story about a family and how loss can shake our faith. 4 🌟 3) Moloka‘i. I loved this book about the Leper colony on this Hawaiian island. 4 🌟 The books pictured are this week‘s #WeeklyForecast

Kdgordon88 @cinfhen #LilliRead. I have finished our first section and it is just meh so far. It is a flat narrative not evoking much emotion, but that could just be me. I will probably continue on at least through our next section. (edited) 1w
Cinfhen I haven‘t started the new section of #LilliRead but I hope to later today. If it doesn‘t grab me I may put it aside. I‘ve got my eyes on other books!!!!! #BookNerdProblems 1w

I am very much a mood reader but in order to meet my goals by year end a little bit of planning might be in order. These are my 4 must reads for September. Two for #LitsyAtoZ Rose Under Fire and Under the Banner which also checks my non fiction box. Little Women for my classic pic and Wunderland for #LMPBC. I have a great reading month ahead. What will you be reading?

8 and 9 for #Cozyinthesun. Both are the first in a new to me series. They were enjoyable reads but I am not sure I will read more.

@Librarybelle @ferskner

rretzler The Irish Village series is a little uneven, but it is a cute series and has kind of grown on me. Although, I must admit, once I‘m a couple of books into a series, I tend to keep reading even if the books are not the greatest because I guess I‘m afraid of missing something(?) 🤷🏼‍♀️ 4mo

#cozyinthesun. Not sure if A Christmas Promise is truly a cozy but here are 2 maybe 3 more finishes for this challenge. I am really enjoying a time out from reading heavier themed books.

Kdgordon88 @rretzler I agree with you, lots of cozy but not much mystery. 4mo
See All 6 Comments
rretzler Sounds like you may be invested in the characters like me. It‘s that way for me with both of MC Beaton‘s series - Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth. The books are getting almost unreadable as she is in her 80s, but I keep reading them since I‘ve been reading them for many years! I shouldn‘t keep spending my money, but I‘m so invested now I can‘t stop. 🤣 4mo
Kdgordon88 @rretzler That is absolutely why I carry on with Dimity. I continue to read the Stephanie Plum books for the same reason. I stopped reading Agatha a few years ago because she became more annoying rather than endearing to me but will pick up where I left off for #cozyinthesun. 4mo
