tpixie @rjsthumbelina yes! I think it‘s my favorite from 2019!! This and all of Fredrick Backman books I‘ve read so far and The Nightingale are my most recent favorites! 3d
tpixie @Larkken oh fun! Ours are at the end of their peak. And it‘s going to rain all week so I‘m not certain how well they will holdinghold out. I was hoping they‘d be pretty for Bookclub on Thursday, but the rains will wilt them. Enjoy yours as they bloom! 3d

I wonder if they used the same cover artist?? The font is similar also.
Different publishers though - Putnum & Ecco, Respectively.

tpixie @JaclynW lol that's why I ended up buying The Immortalist! The cover! I think there's another cover out there that is similar, but I can't recall it. 4d
JanuarieTimewalker13 Both gorgeous!! I‘ve read The Immortalists...loved it! Can‘t wait to read Stella! There‘s another book that‘s so gorgeous too..I have to find it...it‘s by an English author, it remains a me a bit of these 2 but I think it has grapes...ok, I just found it...Everything Under...gorgeous book, but def different then these...sorry, my mix up. (edited) 4d
tpixie @JanuarieTimewalker13 Stella does look good!! This is a pretty cover! (edited) 4d
JanuarieTimewalker13 I know!! Can you imagine displaying all three?....complete works of art!! EU was shortlisted for the Man Booker (2018). Lots of times I find award finalists tedious, but I‘ll give it a go (one day), hopefully. 4d
tpixie @JanuarieTimewalker13 I think that‘s one reason why REAL books I have had an increase in sales – they really improved the covers- now they really are artwork!! i‘ll need to try to read this book too because well, the cover is pretty!! 4d
JanuarieTimewalker13 @tpixie you know, that‘s an excellent point! I never thought about that!! Covers nowadays are stunning! 4d

Eggs Beautiful photo❣️ 2w

tpixie @Eggs @AlaMich thanks! It‘s one of my favorite colors!!! I have a beautiful burgundy one, but we just had hail and so the pedals were damaged. Luckily the plants weren‘t though so hopefully later in the week I‘ll be able to get photos of that one! And my peach ones coming up and I love my orange one that will be coming soon! But I am sure to tell all my purple and yellow ones that I love them too and that they are pretty! Lol 😂 (edited) 2w

tpixie @CouronneDhiver he doesn‘t know the name. But his advice: Don‘t plant them deep. Make sure the top of the rhizome is above ground. Make sure there is good drainage, so they don‘t stand in water. 2w

Just finished this book today. It was awesome! This book and Beartown has all the feelings! Backman's writing brings out my emotions like the books I read during my childhood.

tpixie @BookishMeanderings He has become my favorite author. I really held off a long time before reading Beartown because why would I want to read about hockey?!!! but there‘s so much personal relationships it really was a great read. and my husband is a basketball coach and my kids played sports so I can relate that way too. 1mo

I thought the author was a good storyteller- when he was narrating or when a character was telling a story, but when he was writing dialogue, the the dialogue did not sound natural. I find Nora Roberts & JD Robb writes some of the best natural dialogue. Those that look down on romance novels might find that surprising!!!

C.Perone I had the sample problem with the dialogue in this one and in The Hope Chest. 2mo
tpixie @C.Perone good to know. The Hope Chest looked good but the dialogue really made it hard to read in The Charm Bracelet- esp between the Mom & her new boyfriend 2mo
C.Perone @tpixie The dialogue of the little girl in The Hope Chest was maddening 😠 However, the story itself was quite moving and good 2mo
See All 6 Comments
tpixie @C.Perone Dialogue just must be very difficult to do 2mo
C.Perone @tpixie I think so, trying to keep the words and sentiments true to the character, their age, the cultural setting, etc, etc And yet, when the dialogue is good you hardly notice it; it just flows 2mo

MicheleinPhilly That‘s incredible! I get twitchy when a series has 6+ entries. I can‘t even imagine tackling one with almost 50! 3mo
tpixie @MicheleinPhilly yes! Me too! I think the secret was I started them in their early stages/beginning- lol so I had no idea what I was getting into!!! 3mo
CoverToCoverGirl Not a fan of her other works but love this series too! 3mo
tpixie @CoverToCoverGirl lots of great friends in it! 3mo
CoverToCoverGirl Exactly, it feels like you‘re hanging out with old friends. 😊 3mo

Getting a book from my shelves (The Charm Bracelet) and ran across these well worn childhood friends! Found some other books I think I‘ll let go into the wild also! #IBelieveThemBookFairies Also a bookmark from @Mommamanzi #CoverToCover

AlaMich Oh, The Phantom Tollbooth!! My wife, the first grade teacher, had never read it, so I made her a few years ago! 3mo
tpixie @AlaMich awesome!! I love the play on words!! My oldest used to read it once a year! 3mo
tpixie @AlaMich the inner cover had my cursive signature. So I bet it was from 4-5th grade! More decades ago that I can even imagine! 3mo

Bookzombie I didn‘t know Bedknobs and Broomsticks was from a book! I‘m going to see if I can find it. ☺️ 3mo
tpixie @Bookzombie yes! She also wrote The Borrowers, another favorite of mine!! 3mo
dragondrool I introduced the tollbooth to a handful of middle-schoolers a couple of months ago. It was my turn to pick our read-aloud. It is great fun to read out loud. 3mo
tpixie @dragondrool awesome!! Yes! So glad you shared it with kids!! Whether we have weather!! 3mo
whatshesreadingnow 💗💗💗 3mo
tpixie @whatshesreadingnow yes!!! ♥️♥️♥️ 3mo
pdever Yep. Phantom Toolboth was a favorite of mine, as well. Super fond memories of it. Like @Bookzombie, I only knew Bedknobs and Broomsticks as a movie from my youth. 2mo
tpixie @pdever PT is soo good! Loved the B & B movie too!! 2mo

In San Francisco airport. Here's a cool printing press replica in a bookstore. So another plane cancelled and then another delayed. Doubt I‘ll make my connecting flight in Dallas. Good news is, since I spent 5 hours walking the Dallas airport earlier in the week, I know where the best seats to sleep in are!! I'll get extra time to read!!

Soubhiville Aw, wish you were in Austin, I‘d come get you and we could go get some amazing Tacos! Be safe, I hope you aren‘t too late teaching your destination! 💚 3mo
LeahBergen Oh, how annoying! 😐 3mo
tpixie @Soubhiville sounds yummy!! I've always wanted to go Austin!! @LeahBergen I've had cancelled fights both ways!! It'll be close but I might make my next flight. I've got about 30 minutes to get there! I guess I'll have to use that planes bathroom after this 3 hour flight!!! ✈️ 3mo

My connecting flight from Dallas to San Francisco got canceled. I have a five hour layover in DFW until my flight. I‘ve been enjoying the artwork at the airport while I‘m audiowalking! Also I get to join @litsybookclub discussion for the great The Flight Attendant 👩🏻‍✈️ at the Dallas airport!! #AudioWalking #LitsyBookClub

Such a great book! Can‘t wait to discuss it! I kept thinking, what would I do in her situation?? Maybe I should always buy some BLEACH when I travel!!

Kathrin Another month without me. I never even started the book... completely forgot. 😱😱😱 3mo
Daisey @tpixie @Kathrin I‘m out on this one as well. This book just didn‘t sound like my cup of tea, and I really can‘t fit more reading at the moment with two roughly thousand page books in progress and my #CovertoCover book. I do look forward to hearing what you all have to say about it though. 3mo
tpixie @Kathrin well put it in your TBR LIST! You're a traveling queen! 3mo

Grab some snacks, drinks, & BOOKS, & occasionally share your biblio-fun w/ everyone!

Scheduling it for Sun, 5pm EST-whenever!
