Finished this book last night in my favorite reading spot. The puppy was feeling left out so he had to be in the picture too! Lots of drama, moves fast, and will make you smile what more could you want from a summer read.

I've been in a serious reading slump. I've started 3 different books but nothing I've wanted to keep reading. I picked this book up last night and no more reading slump. I had to get an oil change and the guy kept apologizing for taking so long. I had a solid hour of uninterrupted reading time. I don't think he understood how wonderful it was to have nowhere to be and a book that you just want to keep reading!

This book is four short novellas. The first and last ones are great but the middle two stories are just okay. I loved The Fireman so this was a little disappointing.

Us Against You | Fredrik Backman

Finished the above tagged book. Not as good as Beartown but still a worthwhile read. Puppy has nothing to do with the book except that the only reason I got some extra reading time in is because he is feeling a little under the weather and sacked out on the couch.

Lazy Saturday afternoon - could not stop reading this book. I love it when a book is soooo different than you thought it would be. I don't want to give anything away but if you like a book where you say to yourself What? Than you will like this book!

The Little Prince | Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Not your typical children's story. This is a very different story. I wish I understood it on a deeper level.

EadieB @lildeb_8 Message of book is to simplify your life. All that the little Prince had on his planet was a flower and three mountains and he was extraordinarily happy. "What is essential is invisible to the eye, it is only with the heart that we can see clearly." (edited) 12mo

Hello summer! I know I'm probably the only person who hasn't read this book but I loved it. After Sharp Objects, I said no more Gillian Flynn . I'm so glad I changed my mind. Dark, twisted and some great plot twists! Favorite book of the year so far.

First day of summer vacation when I didn't have to go somewhere. I finished this book. So good! It's a ghost story and a murder mystery rolled into one. It kept me guessing and on edge.

Finally read this book. I'm a bit hesitant to read books that have so much hype around them. This book is worth all the hype. Fantastic characters and a story that needs to be told from a perspective that doesn't get told.

And so it ends. I'm a little sad to be done. I think this was the most enjoyable outside of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I'm impressed with the care, time, and scholarship his son put into Tolkien's unfinished books so that we could read them. #lotrchapteraday

This is probably the last book I will finish this year. It will complete my Popsugar challenge, but I am also reading it because it was one of the favorite books of a lady in our church who passed away this week. She was like a grandmother to me. She loved cats and I will miss her a lot.

tomes4gnomes I‘m so sorry for the loss of your friend. It is beautiful when a book can be a bridge between us and people who have passed, reminding us of who they were and what they loved. 2y
DivaDiane I‘m very sorry for your loss. Grandmothers, wherever they come from, are precious. 2y

Spending a quiet snowy night on the sofa with the dog we are watching. I think I have to high expectations after The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. This book is okay. It is so much more readable than The Silmarillion, but it was just okay to me.

I might be in the minority but I think this is the most boring book ever written. The only good thing I can say about it is that it is done. Hoping the next book is better. #lotrchapteraday
