This one is compared to Daisy Jones and the Six but it has no similarities with it really. Once I got past that I loved this sweet coming of age story.

First time using Bookly and I kept forgetting to start it. Maybe it‘ll catch on with me. The book, however, DID catch on with me. I loved this! Some parts were completely over the top and a few of the friends annoying but overall a great read.

MrBook Nice!!! 🙂👏🏻 2y

Going Postal | Terry Pratchett

I‘m in a postal book club and we‘ve had some drop out this year (our group has been going for about six years). It‘s a pretty varied group that brings a number of interesting titles in. If you don‘t know what a postal book club is, we have six people. Each person chooses a book and a notebook. The books are sent around in a circle rotating every 2 months until it gets back to the beginning. We need one more person. Anybody interested in joining?

LiteraryinLawrence What are some recent titles you‘ve done? I‘ve done postal book clubs before but was taking a break until my wedding. Since that‘s in 2 weeks, I definitely could see getting back into it! 3y

I enjoyed this one. I didn‘t try any of the recipes and don‘t know if I will but I really connected with her stories especially in dealing with the grief and loss of her dad. Maybe if I wasn‘t reading it so close to my own dad‘s death I‘d feel differently but right now it felt like she echoed a lot of the feelings I have. #24in48

peaknit I enjoyed this one and I did try some of her recipes👍🏻 thanks for reminding me of this good read. I read Delancey as well, about the creation of her husband‘s Seattle restaurant. 4y
