I haven‘t read it yet, but I bought this book a while back based on the strength of the movie trailer.

I know #Broadchurch and #Dibley don‘t exist, but the shows make me want to go there so bad. I suppose I could‘ve included #Narnia and #Fantastica/#Fantasia, too.

I haven‘t read this book yet, so I don‘t know if this part of the Bible is in here, but my favorite part of the Esther story is when Vashti stands up to the #king.
#tallshipcelebration @CrowCAH

CrowCAH Ester is a nice and short book in the Bible; a great story line, too! 1w
Libby1 Yes, I would have loved some sermons about the bravery of Vashti as I was growing up. I only vaguely remember being taught she was just naughty for not obeying her husband. Sigh. 1w

I‘m aware the book might have some “problems” that weren‘t in the movie, but I adored the film so much that I had to buy the book.

Waisted: A Novel | Randy Susan Meyers

Mehso-so

(I finished this book a week or two ago.)

Would you do anything to lose weight? A group of seven women decides to go to a weight loss camp for a documentary, and they get more than they bargain for.

Thank you to #NetGalley and #AtriaBooks for the #ARC.

Overall, it's not a bad book. It just wasn't for me. Full review at https://mydearwatsonbooks.wordpress.com/2019/07/08/waisted/.

So I bought this book awhile back not only because I love #Japanese literature but also mostly because one of the characters had the same name as my grandmother, Sachiko.

What‘s the most random reason you‘ve ever bought a book?

1.) Maniacal, incomparable...pretty much words that have the emphasis in a spot you don‘t expect.
2.) I‘m sure there‘s a ton, but the one I can think of right now is “awry”. I had heard it before but had never put it together with the written word.
3.) Methylchloroisothiazolinone
4.) The only one I can think of right now is “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” (feel free to check the spelling).
5.) Tag, you‘re it!
