I know many people don't like the lack of plot, but I ADORED this book. I was hovering on the edge of tears for much of it. The writing was stunning, heartbreaking, exquisite, lyrical...
I was torn between wanting to devour the book and savor it. This time I chose devour, but I will reread for sure so I can savor it more. The audio is read by the author and I highly recommend. However, I am going to buy the print book as well. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Leftcoastzen I loved it too. 3mo
kindergartenkat @Leftcoastzen Yea! I saw so many reviews that were like, "the writing was beautiful but where's the story?" I just straight up loved this book! 3mo

I'm on vacation right now but still managed to get in a few books and workouts! But that's why I gave myself overall goals this round instead of weekly. I don't get home until Tuesday and I'll really need to buckle down to burn off some vacation pounds 😂

kindergartenkat @Caterina I am really looking forward to With the Fire on High because I LOVED The Poet X. She's amazing on audio too. @marleed isn't that always the way with book holds? It's not like I put them all on hold at the same time or that they had the same wait times. 4mo
marleed I even closely manage my holds by suspending some, but still it seems when it rains, it pours! 4mo
BarbaraJean Oooh—enjoy With the Fire on High!! The audio was really good. I felt like it wasn‘t as good as The Poet X—but that‘s not really a criticism, because they‘re so different (and The Poet X was AMAZING). (edited) 4mo

Looking forward to #BFCr2! I'm happy that some of my #ATB peeps are on my team!
Here are my goals. During this round I will be on vacay for one of the weeks and will have my 7 year old niece for another week so I am thinking of that with my goals. I still want 20 books, but with workouts I'm going to do a total rather than weekly. So I will go with 24 workouts total and add 12 days helping on the farm.

I'm about 1/3 done. So far it is interesting to see the back story of the houses and who people are named after, but it reads like a history book and thus goes through like 20 years in a chapter. I'm rereading the Song of Ice and Fire right now so the switch from character POV to history book is odd for me. Also, I'm hoping to see what WINTER is! It gets hinted at, but we never actually see it!

#BFC Week 4 photo challenge. It was hard to pick a favorite read from this challenge. I have a hard time choosing favorites of anything! I finally narrowed it down to two books. It is rare that I like the first book in a series the best, but I think The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms was my favorite though I loved the whole trilogy. The Sun Does Shine was just such a great book - tragic and inspiring.
