#7covers7days day 3
#7covers7days day 2
I just wanna read all day 💚but I do have to go grocery shopping so meal planning, reading, shopping is my plan for the day. Oh and seeing who else is reading with me and following them and liking their posts 🤣
Today felt like summer; no alarm, no make up, all meals outside, read ( finished) crawdads in the sun, hung laundry on the line and took a hike around the ponds not far from our house with my husband to keep the feeling of the book going a bit longer. A perfect day
#atwoodlive it was so awesome to see this tonight! It was much more than I expected. Aunt Lydia reading 💚and seeing how much MA likes Ann Dowd 💚and vice versa. My book comes tomorrow
Creepy, sad, smart and sinister. So many books are about the importance of a tribe but what if you don‘t have one, what if a ‘tribe‘ isn‘t your thing? Bunny is bizarre, part magical, part savage, part sweet, part harsh. It‘s compelling.
It‘s a beautiful last day of summer vacation. This book is all kinds of wonderful. I am not a big non-fiction fan. I want to lose myself in a story and a lot of non-fiction does not sweep me away. This book swept me up and sucked me in and held up a mirror too. ❤️
I need to work on creating this space ( with some people) so I respond instead of react ( and then replay it over and over in my brain at 4 am)
Thx to Littens posting about this, I am loving it. I‘m trying not to inhale it too fast and spend some time reflecting on my own self while I read
Happy #nationalredwineday🍷the blurb on this book say it‘s a grown up version of Harriet the Spy, and I suppose that‘s true. Isabel Spellman and her extended family own and operate a PI business. They appear to be quite successful at it while being completely dysfunctional as a family. There are quite a few twists and laugh out loud moments. I‘m thinking I have a new series to read
1. I, too, think red is the best colour
2. Lisbeth Salander in The Girls with a Dragon Tattoo ( I need a way more varied diet and I am less intense 😆)
3. Another glass of wine 4. @JenniferP @Howard_L @Jnnlb #wondrouswednesday @Eggs
Have FINALLY started watching the show ( finished first season last night) that I have let pile up in my DVR for a couple of years 😞I bought this gorgeous graphic novel to read in tandem and jog my memory of the story. My husband is rereading his paperback from school. Part of me wants to have it all done when I see Margaret on September 10th but another part wants it never to be over ❤️
Helen Oyeyemi writes a crazy mix of fairy tale and real with a fluid time line so it seems like an old fashioned present day. She is gifted with words, some images of the rat catcher stayed a bit too long in my mind. I enjoyed all of the characters and the different view points of Boy, Snow and Bird. I‘m even more disappointed about Gingerbread now 🤣
I‘m wearing my Snow White bracelet ( my first princess love ) while I start this
What an amazing story! I loved the Hawaiian history and learning/understanding more about Leprosy/Hansen‘s Disease but mostly I loved Rachel
Using my bookmark from Hawaii while reading a book set in Hawaii #nailedit #winning also excited to read this because it‘s a book that has been recommended to me by every book generator ever. But had never heard of it beyond that 🤷🏻♀️
A perfect book to finish on #nationalsisterday the story follows to very different sisters in their lives, the oldest Emily, driven, focussed, successful and part of a tech start up and Jess a dreamer, a philosophy grad student and eco-warrior. Some wonderful messages inside this story of family and love and passions.
Wondering if book mail made it to you?
@KarynGood #poutinepenpals I wanted to let you know I used my birthday gift card to preorder this book and I‘ve bought tickets to see Margaret Atwood speak on the release day. I‘m so excited and I wanted to say thank you again for your thoughtfulness 😘
What an absolute stellar retell of Pride & Prejudice! It‘s was modern and captivating and a bit turned on it‘s head. If you are a Jane Austen fan, this book is a must ❤️ it‘s also a wonderful story about immigrating to Canada and the ups and downs of that. If I was a high school English teacher I‘d be all over this
Two parallel stories involving young adults in the media‘s eye ( cross hairs more like). Ava, whose 2 dads move them to Nova Scotia to be a part of a reality show and Mags, who fights to escape poverty and sexual and physical abuse have stories that intersect and overlap. I can‘t believe how I flew through this story. ❤️
My reading spot today
Signs of summer. I‘ve bought more books 🤦🏻♀️ next week I‘m going to a @PenguinRandomCa book club in Toronto for We‘re all in this Together that I read a while ago and LOVED ( from the library) so I bought it ( book signing) and Amy Jones‘ new one to read RIGHT AWAY 😱
This was an impulse grab from the library because of Meg Wolitzer ( I loved The Interestings) and it‘s epistolary and the 2 letter writers are going/at camp so a perfect summer read. It is such a great book. The girls are perfect, smart, flawed, funny. There are events you see coming and you just want to close your eyes but others that you don‘t and leave you stunned. I cried at the end. How‘s that for a Young Reader ❤️
Working on my charcuterie game to fuel my reading on hot summer nights
I loved this story. I admit to yelling out loud at characters to stop their stories. Beautiful. ❤️
Once upon someone here recommended this after I‘d finally read Lord of the Flies. Thank you because I loved it! It‘s ridiculous and hilarious and has a great grrrl powered message.
