Dragonfly in Amber | Diana Gabaldon
post image

Went for a hike today and found the perfect spot (in a cave!!) to sit with my kindle for a few moments at lunch. Spain is beautiful and I‘m discovering so many new things I love about it everyday, but every adventure is better with a book 📖 #optoutsideandbringyourbook

I promise that someday I‘ll finish this book and start posting about others 🤷🏻‍♀️

BethM Beautiful! 3d

After binge watching all four seasons (and finally unpacking my books!!) it‘s time to get to the reading part of my #outlander adventure.

Y‘all, I‘ve been reading this book for literally two months. It‘s not a hard read, but I‘m just not into finishing it. I‘m in a book slump and I need help! #whattoread #bookslump #helpme (also throwback to this internet gem)

Demibom What do you like to read? 1mo
looking_for_mikaela @Demibom I‘m so all over the place, usually more of a contemporary drama, with the occasional science fiction splashed in? 1mo

looking_for_mikaela @tpixie annnnd it‘s on my list. Thanks for the recommendation! (edited) 1mo
tpixie @looking_for_mikaela I like the writing. The 3 sisters were actually real people! I'm reading the second one now 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Ok, this often happens to me with nonfiction. Killers of the Flower Moon almost sent me into one but I‘ve introduced Stephen King as a palate cleanser.. 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 That sounds weird, but KOTFM is so disturbing, and also drawn out, that SK is a welcome change. When you‘re determined to finish a book, sometimes another book “break”helps. Fiction Saves. Lol 1mo
looking_for_mikaela @JanuarieTimewalker13 “fiction saves”! 🥰 I love it 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Hahaha...yeah, amazing I could come up with anything BC-Before Coffee. It‘s my mental “on” switch. Lol 1mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage You could always stick to the same characters, but bump to this fictional mystery. It‘s funny and a quick read. 1mo
tpixie @JanuarieTimewalker13 #FictionSaves ! I love it!!! ♥️📚♥️ 1mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @tpixie hahaha!! I like the hashtag!! I‘m still plowing through KOTFM. It‘s so disturbing that Bag of Bones is actually comforting (thus far). 1mo

Every Word You Cannot Say | Iain S. Thomas
post image

I picked up this book on Sunday, coincidentally just a day after a good friend of mine took his own life. In the midst of grief and guilt and anger, as I read these words, I felt the need to share my heart. If you are scared or ashamed or lost, you are not alone. You are loved. It‘s okay to be not okay. Share your burdens and your troubles, together we are strong enough to defeat any demon. It‘s okay to ask for help. ❤️

Crazeedi My deepest sympathies, I can't imagine how you are feeling. Sending prayers to you tonight 3mo
Texreader Heartbreaking!! So sorry for your loss. And thanks for sharing. 💙💙💙 3mo
JacqMac Sorry for your loss. 💕 3mo
Itchyfeetreader Sorry for your loss. Beautiful heartfelt words 3mo
Demibom A good friend of mine tried to commit suicide a week ago. He said he felt very loved online and hated in real life😢 1mo

“Perhaps there is some secret sort of homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers. How delightful if that were true.”

“That's what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you to another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It's geometrically progressive - all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment.”

tpixie I love these quotes!! 1mo

I devoured this book today after watching the Netflix feature a few days ago. Needless to say I found myself as enchanted by Mary Ann‘s prose as much as Juliet Adams must have been by Dawsey, Eben, Amelia, Isla, and the residents of the island of Guernsey.

The letter writing is the perfect presentation for the story of the Society and how books change lives. 451 characters are not enough to convey the joy I feel after I finally put it down.

sprainedbrain Great review! I loved the book and the film. ❤️ 3mo

When Breath Becomes Air | Paul Kalanithi
post image

I can‘t even begin to imagine the enormity of such a realization. We the living take so much of it for granted, forgetting we will all share in a few key experiences, chief among those being death. When Breath Becomes Air was well written, sometimes scientific, and a interesting glimpse into death.

Finally picked up my kindle again after what feels like years of road-tripping. Nothing like a quick little classic Star Wars novel to relax with for the evening!

Wishful Drinking | Carrie Fisher
post image
Pickpick

A few months ago I finished this book while I was on deployment. Wishful Drinking was hilarious and had me laughing out loud even on the worst of days. The voice and candor is just marvelous. It‘s like listening to a friend regal you with flair and attitude of the nuances of life. Carrie Fisher may be one with the Force, but she‘ll always be our Princess. #CarrieOnForever

sprainedbrain Love her so much! ❤️ 5mo

I‘m traveling a lot this upcoming year, starting early with a cross country road trip and eventual move to Spain. My goal is to make time every place I stop to read a few chapters. Also to finish the ever growing pile next to my bookshelf of “to reads”. 🤷🏻‍♀️
