I saw this on Litsy, & it sounded interesting, mainly because I work with kids & know the hilarious/weird questions they can ask. This book grossed me out in parts (I‘m squeamish about blood, etc) & isn‘t something you want to read while eating. I did learn a lot, the illustrations are fun, & the author is funny. My kindle still showed 20 pages left when the book ended, so it was a little abrupt. #TBRRead #wintergames @Clwojick @StayCurious

Decades: A Century of Fashion | Cameron Silver, Rebecca DiLiberto
post image

I think this is my completed list for #top10ofthedecade #fictionedition
I chose one Wendell Berry book because otherwise, my list would be mostly his books. Apparently, I had amazing reading years in 2017 & 2018 because I read most of these at that time. I chose 12 because I couldn‘t narrow it down anymore. I chose these because they‘re the ones that have stuck with me & that I have been passionate about for longer than a few days. @Cinfhen

Scochrane26 Honorable mention —The Song of Achilles 13h
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Ready Player One almost made my list. I loved it. 11h
Cinfhen I read Posionwood Bible last year/ incredible!!!!!! Would be on my top 10 all time favorite list!! I haven‘t tried any Wendell Berry/ where should I start with the book you tagged??? 11h
See All 7 Comments
Scochrane26 @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I wasn‘t going to put it, but it was one I kept talking about for a long time. 2h
Scochrane26 @Cinfhen it doesn‘t really matter where you start w/ Berry. All the fiction books are connected. My friend suggested I start with The Memory of Old Jack. @ljuliel have recently had discussions about his books—I think she started w/ Andy Catlett or Nathan Coulter. She thinks most people like Hannah best. 2h
ljuliel @Cinfhen @Scochrane26 would certainly be more knowledgeable about Wendell Berry, being from his state. My favorite was Jayber Crow ( probably because it‘s the longest of the single- story books he‘s written. Most of his Port William books are told from the viewpoint of one person in the town. They all blend together to tell a bigger picture. i think ,for some reason, Hannah Coulter is very popular. Maybe because it‘s written from a female‘s view (edited) now
Cinfhen I just read the Kent Haruf trilogy so I wonder if Wendell Berry has the same feel ??? @Scochrane26 @ljuliel now

Eleanor and Park | Rainbow Rowell
post image

Day 12– I‘ve been trying to decide on my fiction favorites for the decade & had to cut this one out. So, I decided to use it for #adventrecommends. This was my first Rainbow Rowell book. She has a way of mixing what would normally be a light story with realistic issues that teens cope with everyday (dv, parent mental illness, etc). Her characters are funny, sad, relatable, & memorable. @emilyrose_x

Born a Crime | Trevor Noah
post image

1) HP books are the best audiobooks, but I‘m not sure if I listened to them before or after 2010 & didn‘t want to include re-reads.
2) I forgot about Killers of the Flower Moon & would have replaced When Breath Becomes Air with it on my NF list. On audio, it‘s a jolt when the narrator changes due to his death.
3) I listened to 9/10 of the Heroes of Olympus series, esp on some long trips, so I included it as a series.
4) I like accents. 👇

Scochrane26 No 1 ladies‘ detective agency & The Crazy Rich Asians series both have narrators who do multiple accents. Loved the accents for the others. I liked listening to Carrie Fisher‘s voice (rip) & what she had to say in Shockaholic. And Born a Crime is amazing with Trevor‘s voice. It caused me to start listening to the daily show-I love his accent & ability w/ other languages. And Gabrielle Union had important subjects to think about in her book. @Cinfhen (edited) 1d
4thhouseontheleft I had never thought to listen to the audiobooks of No 1 Ladies Detective Agency. That is a series I stopped reading but mean to go back to at some point. I may try it on audio! 1d

Scochrane26 @4thhouseontheleft I used to get them on cd at the library, but now I don‘t have CD player in the car. I may return to the series next year, I think I‘ve listened to 6-8 of them. 1d
Cinfhen I love accents too!!! I really much prefer audio to physical books as I get older and my eyes start to feel weaker. Geez, I sound like a crotchety old grandma 👵 Thanks for sharing your list❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️ 1d

I put this in my long list of decade favorites, but it‘s not going to be in the top ten. So, I‘ll use it for #adventrecommends I‘m sure many Christians think this is a horrible, sacrilegious book, but 2 of my pastor friends suggested I read it. It‘s hilarious and very imaginative. It‘s also emotional towards the end. Love the friendship between Biff & Joshua (Jesus). I have a favorite part but don‘t want to spoil it for anyone. @emilyrose_x

Caterina My seminary classmates keep recommending this, I really need to finally get around to reading it!! 1d
Scochrane26 @Caterina Yes, you should definitely read it! It may be the funniest book I‘ve ever read. But, also touching. It helped me understand communion better. I‘m not sure the author was going for that, but I got a good message from it. While also laughing for most of the book. 1d

Homeland: And Other Stories | Barbara Kingsolver

This is one of Kingsolver‘s earlier books. I‘m not always into short stories, so I liked some of these but some were so-so. Most of them didn‘t have a tidy ending, so they felt incomplete, but I guess that was the point. This finishes my Modern Mrs Darcy challenge-the only one I did this year. Prompt was a book in an author‘s backlist

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
post image
Pickpick

Finally finished Educated. It was on my tbr for awhile, but a friend told me she loved it, so I moved it up. I think I liked the same theme as my friend did—the struggle to be someone different than your family wants you to be and the loss associated with it. At one point, I was willing Tara to go to therapy, glad she finally did. I thought it was weird that her father watched tv, even if it was old shows, yet couldn‘t go to church w/ out 👇

Scochrane26 Condemning women for wearing normal clothes. And I would have liked to know more about how Tara learned cultural norms of school in enough time the first semester to get all a‘s. That was a little sketchy, IMO. Her relationship w/ Tyler was a strong point. #wintergames #thefilthyanimals #TBRread @Clwojick @StayCurious 5d

Day 5- I was looking through my past GR years to find some favorite books. Apparently, it‘s only been about 6 years since I got into Wendell Berry books & only about 5 since I finally found Barbara Kingsolver, thanks to my teens at church camp. Both quickly became favorite authors. It feels like it‘s been longer, but the 2010‘s have been a bit of a blur for me.

Finished this while cooking & eating dinner. Busy is the narrator, which adds emotion to several stories she tells about her teen years & recent life. There were some heartfelt stories. Of course, she talks a lot about famous people and her career, & she doesn‘t hold back about famous people she doesn‘t like, leading to some funny moments. #TIL she dated Colin Hanks. Also, that she sobs a lot.

This is a small book with 2 essays that I got signed. Always have to get something from Mr. Berry when I see him at the book fair. I‘ve actually read one essay but will re-visit it after going to see the Mister Rogers movie today. As usual, when I read Berry‘s essays, I get so frustrated because he was writing these in late 60‘s & 70‘s but the problems are still the same, only worse. Why don‘t we listen?!! I‘ll post quotes later.

Scochrane26 If you want to check out more than this essay, it says it‘s in his book 2w
ljuliel Can you snap a photo of his signature ? I‘ll never get to see him in person, so I‘ll get to pretend by seeing yours ! 😊 2w

Scochrane26 @ljuliel I hadn‘t read any Silas House books until a few yrs ago, then felt like I was stalking him because I saw him 3 times in about six months. He did a lot of promotion for Southernmost, & he does many local events for various organizations. Plus, I think he still teaches at a college in the area. I follow him on insta. He went to a lot of cities for Southernmost & said he will call in if a book club is reading it. 2w

I love the characters (both main & secondary) in this romance during a Ren Faire. It has serious moments and obstacles for the main couple, but it all works out like a good romance book. I‘m glad this is going to be a series, so readers can spend more time with secondary characters & hopefully re-visit the Faire.

This book was disappointing in a few parts for me. I still liked it, it just wasn‘t as amazing as the first one. The re-hashing of the first 2 books got on my nerves. No one is going to start w/ the 3rd book! And the ending fight wasn‘t as good as it could have been, IMO. And there‘s a couple of other small flaws. Overall, I really loved this series, the characters, & the creativity. It did make me finally read Dracula & Jekyll & Hyde.

Scochrane26 @megabooks I think pecan pie is a southern thing, but Ky does love it. My mom often makes pumpkin pie, which I don‘t like much, so I‘ll buy a couple pieces of pecan at the store. 2w

I had forgotten that this novella was being released today until I saw it on my kindle this morning. I‘ve been very busy today w/ work & still have a bunch of work tonight, but I started this at lunch & am going to take a break to finish it. Enjoying the brief visit w/ Monty, Percy, & Felicity, then waiting until August for the next book.

Haven‘t done a #weeklyforecast but thought I would this week. I‘m still working on library books.
Started the tagged finally today. I started Educated a few weeks ago on audio but decided I‘d rather read it than listen. Will start One Day in December for #BOTMBuddyread. I also want to catch up on some shows this long weekend, so I only need to finish the first 2 this week.

Sorry for the non-book related post, but yesterday, I met Jim O‘Heir from my new favorite show (I just watched earlier this year). He spent a few minutes w/ everyone & was hilarious during the q&a. I was disappointed because I didn‘t get to see Graham McTavish (Dougal from Outlander), apparently, they had some last-minute cancellations. I also went to a q&a with Cary Elwes & Chris Sarandon (Princess bride). It was fun & saw some amazing costumes!

4thhouseontheleft I 💜 so many things about this! Parks and Rec! Cary Elwes and Princess Bride! Two of my favorite things in one place. Where were you? 3w
Scochrane26 @4thhouseontheleft I was at the Louisville, Ky comic con. There were some big celebrities there-I forgot to mention the Jon Cusack q&a. I didn‘t get autographs/meet Cary Elwes & Chris Sarandon but went to q&a. Most popular celebrity based on the line to meet him-Dave Bautista. 3w
TNbookworm Love Parks and Rec so much! 3w

I‘m at a Comic con today. My sister wanted to attend the panel for the original Belle and Gaston. A young girl asked the actress what her fave Belle scene is, & she said when belle realizes she‘s in ❤️w/ Beast in the snow. Then, she asked the girl what her fave scene is, & the girl said when Belle goes into the library. Kindred spirit, maybe a future Litten. 💜

Shockaholic completes my experience with memoirs by Carrie Fisher. I like audio because she narrates, & I appreciate the short length because some celebrity memoirs are start dragging at the end. This one is hilarious in the beginning, but a lot of it is about her relationship w/ her father & his death. She also talks about caregiving for several dying friends. Of course, it made me think of her death, I hope she had a good friend w/ her.
