Just an awesome, comfort blanket type read. Not because horrible things don‘t happen in the book (they do) but because this is the Atkinson writing I love. I love Brodie and the characters in this book are amazing (the goodies - you‘ll know who they are).
I can never quite put my finger on what I love so much, I think I also laughed every page, which is rare.
Literally this week in work, two of my team had bad news and the tea comes out and the tin of Blue Ribands.....are they available anywhere else?
Look at my new funko! Hubby just gave it to me 😁❤️
Have to collect the rest now.
I‘m fully on board with the be yourself and don‘t let society‘s expectations crush you, but my overwhelming feeling after reading this is one of sadness so I don‘t know if I‘ve missed some of the intended themes of the book 🤷♀️ (my reason for the so-so).
A quick, quirky read and I would definitely try the author again.
Thanks Jessie for giving the chance to read it! 😘
Kindle tells me there is 2 hours 13 mins left. My train journey is 2 hours 12 mins......game on....
Ok I admit I started it last night!! Train reading today for a seminar in London. I have some work to do for a session I‘m giving so I‘m planning an hours work and an hours reading 🤞🏻🤞🏻
I‘m not sure what would be guilty pleasure - if you enjoy it‘s good for you! If you mean stuff people wouldn‘t think you listen to then probably The Carpenters!
Autumn- which can be anytime of the day in the U.K. 😁
I‘m at a work seminar so definitely university sandwiches.
Will do my best.
Happy Friday lovely people ❤️
Love it when you open your kindle and there‘s a book there you (again) forgot you preordered! A new Will Trent 😁😁 will be getting to this ASAP after current read.
It‘s my daughters 18th this weekend and it‘s her last exam today!
Been listening to Billie Eilish with my daughter and really like her!
I have hundreds!Dyed my hair with different coloured food colourings in my early teens. Rained on way to school and it ran down my face and I was made to stand on the stage through school assembly.
Muse and pic my daughter sent when her exams finished today!
Started this all action thriller this morning. Think it was recommended by @Andrew65
I definitely need a lighter read now. This was grey and melancholy and 💔.
The writing was beautiful and the story uncomfortable.
A short story for me!
Title fits the day. Been raining for about 24 hours now and feels like November! Have read half this book over lunchtime and just know it‘s not going to end well!!
A very good read. She doesn‘t romanticise any of it or pretend she‘s a hero for getting sober.
I can be judgemental about addicts having lived with two, a parent and a long ago ex husband. I don‘t think this is a nice thing, it just is, I do my best. It‘s hard for anything to put a chip in that judgement but this may of. Just a chip though. I probably need some way out fiction now.
Quick lunch time read. This book has sucked me in completely and it‘s so not my usual type of read.
When I say it was a fun read, I don‘t really mean fun due to the actual things going on, but mostly one where this is your expression 😮. It was a quick page turner where I guessed a lot of it but wanted to see how it panned out.
Not a literary masterpiece, but a good solid read.
Some train reading - on way to Manchester to meet my son, we‘re going to see MUSE 😁😁
Heart breaking and lovely 💕💔
Had a lump in my throat a couple of times and tears running down my face. Explores a lot of different themes really well. It‘s YA just in case....
What a fantastic #bookmail day today from my friends from far off places 📚
Thank you Jessie, Jenny and Carolyn 😘😘 looking forward to reading these!!
Carolyn - yours will travel again after I‘ve read 👍🏻
Waterstones offer!! I have preordered the signed one as it matches the first 😁❤️
My brother calls me Trash.....
Yes!! Sometimes the hype sets up unrealistic expectations and then I feel let down. Either have to read right after publication or leave for a while!
I can be seduced into buying a book by the cover...it won‘t change my mind about what I think about the book though.
Anyone who hasn‘t played 😁
Thanks for tag @Birdsong28
#wondrouswednesday (sorry it‘s late!)
Day late! Didn‘t see yesterday before bed 😁
Liverpool won the Champions League 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆
I don‘t really re-read. Too many books.
No idea what this means 🤷♀️
Tagged one 👍🏻
Anyone who wants to join in ❤️
Train reading this morning. On way to London for a meeting, which had to be moved as was originally in Whitehall and ended up inside the police cordon for today‘s protests!
Have a good day book friends 😁
Reading has been done tonight!! I have done revision cards for 3.5 hours with my daughter on sociological theories of religion and the family...my brain is very tired.
Going to start tagged book tomorrow as have train travel.
Have abandoned Sympathy for now Cindy, hibernation until you‘re ready....it‘s definitely a concentrate book.....
One in, one out!
Left hand side is my incoming parcel from Helen (unless there‘s another squirrel obsessed person with these stickers 😁) thank you 😘😘 can‘t wait to open
Right hand side is the one I‘ve sent out today (still anonymous let‘s see if she guesses). Should arrive Thursday.
Cindy - I‘ve started!! Which basically means I‘ve read the first few chapters in the bath!
Off out to see my boys bring the cup 🏆 home in a bit . Hopefully get a few more chapters in later.
Can‘t settle to anything today ⚽️⚽️
Sansa‘s ready and raring to go.
