On my kindle tbr, on purpose! I‘m going to read when I know he has a new book coming out 🤷‍♀️
#mountains #wanderingjune

Cinfhen You might be waiting a long time😉😂😂 this was his weakest novel, I think 🤨 10h
TrishB That may be the reason too! 10h
erzascarletbookgasm I haven‘t read any of his 😬 but I heard this is a better read? 10h
See All 17 Comments
LiterarySloth I‘ve read the three novels he has out so far. I loved this one. I just finished it this week. 10h
Tanisha_A I didn't like this one so much. 9h
BarbaraBB @erzascarletbookgasm I think the one I‘ll tag is the best although I haven‘t read Trish‘s one. (edited) 9h
Cathythoughts I loved Kite Runner movie .. havnt read any of the books though .... 9h
Robothugs @erzascarletbookgasm I‘m not sure about that one (splendid suns), but I enjoyed The Kite Runner over this one, if I had to compare. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 9h
KathyWheeler A Thousand Splendid Suns is my favorite but they are all worth reading. 9h
Caroline2 I loved splendid suns, I wasn‘t overly impressed by the kite runner (too depressing!!) I haven‘t read this one yet tho! 7h
erzascarletbookgasm The Kite Runner seems to be very well received 😊 @Robothugs @BarbaraBB 7h
Robothugs @Caroline2 It is definitely a heavy read (The Kite Runner)! 7h
TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm @BarbaraBB I much preferred Splendid Suns over Kite Runner, but both were excellent! 5h
TrishB @LiterarySloth 👍🏻 I will definitely get to. 5h
TrishB @Tanisha_A it does seem to be the least favourite. 5h
TrishB @Cathythoughts they are worth a read. A Thousand Splendid Suns is one of my fav books! 5h
TrishB @KathyWheeler @Caroline2 Suns is my fav too. 5h

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.

LeahBergen Gah! I love her writing in that way, too. 😍 18h
KarenUK Love her writing too.... 💕👍 18h

TrishB @LeahBergen @KarenUK it‘s hard to say, but just enjoy 😁 10h

TrishB @saresmoore it‘s worth waiting for 👍🏻 10h
Cathythoughts Oh great review ... I can‘t wait for the Kate Atkinson buddy read @Cinfhen ... I‘ve never read her 9h
Cinfhen I‘m looking forward to @Cathythoughts but it‘s not until January!!!! That seems REALLY FAR AWAY 8h
Cathythoughts @Cinfhen I know !! It does! But I often remember it‘s coming up , I have the book ☺️ 8h
TrishB @Cinfhen @Cathythoughts it will be here in no time! It will be weird going back to the beginning! 5h

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?

Redwritinghood I don‘t think I‘ve ever seen them here in the US. 21h
AlaMich @Redwritinghood Nope, I‘ve never heard of them here in the US. I‘ll bet they‘re tasty, though. (edited) 21h
JacqMac We tend to get a lot more British things in Canada than they do in the US, but I have not seen them here. I feel like I could use some this week. 😝 21h

mabell Kind of like Kit Kats! 21h
JennyM We get them sent in care packages from my MIL xx not in Aus 😞 20h
TrishB @JennyM awww ☹️ I don‘t eat a lot of biscuits or chocolate, but a comforting Blue Riband with a well earned cup of tea! It‘s the bees knees ❤️ 20h
TrishB @Redwritinghood @AlaMich @JacqMac they must be very British then! Always good with your consoling cup of tea! 20h
TrishB @mabell exactly! Just slightly different... 20h
mabell @TrishB Fun! I‘ll have to check World Market - they usually come through with imported snacks. 😄 20h
AlaMich @TrishB I googled them, and we have a similar cookie here. I no longer buy them because I can easily polish off most of a package in one sitting. 20h
TrishB @AlaMich what did we do before google!! I don‘t really have a sweet tooth, so one occasionally is good for me! Hubby can regularly eat the packet! 19h
BookwormM Guess what I had at work today...tea and a blue ribbon 19h
TrishB @BookwormM lol 😆👍🏻 18h

Crucible Brewing Co. for some really good craft beers. Everett has some pretty cool shops around too. I cant remember the name but there's a witchy herb shop on Hewitt St that is ran by a nice old lady 2d

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! 😘

Megabooks Oh too bad! This is probably my favorite of the year so far. 3d
TrishB @Megabooks I can see there is a lot of love for it! 3d

Ruthiella I often wonder if my ratings are influenced by the emotions a book evokes in me.😮 3d

erzascarletbookgasm This book is quietly depressing! 3d

Somewhere between a pick and a so-so but I think that‘s more about the fact that I‘ve read in very snatched hours as this weekend has been so busy 😁 But will definitely give the next one a try too.

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 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!

Reggie So much water, and I loved the bits about the mom and the dad, how she was only attainable for a certain part of the day right before the party, and how the little girl would tell the brother stories that were from his pajamas....but that ending😭😭😭. 1w

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.
#bookaboutaddiction #booked2019

4thhouseontheleft My adoption allowed me to grow up away from the shadow of addiction, only learning of my birth mother‘s struggles in adulthood, and I am grateful for that. I wish I would have been able to meet her, but I am thankful she did not raise me. It‘s hard to be unbiased when it touches close to home. 1w
Kalalalatja My little brother struggled with addiction, and in some ways still do, and I was so angry with him for so long. And now I‘m working in a place where I have to counsel and do therapy with teenagers with addiction, and they all remind me so much of my brother, which is something I struggle with, but try to work through. So I feel you 1w

Cinfhen Beautiful review, Trish. I‘m glad this book found it‘s way to you and was a bit of comfort instead of pain ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ 1w
batsy My dad was an alcoholic and it was only after he passed that my siblings and I could even say the word "addiction". Lots of stigma on even naming it as such in Malaysian society... Anyway, I hear you and lots of complex feelings indeed ❤️❤️ 1w
Cathythoughts My family too was affected by alcohol.. it leaves deep marks. I don‘t know if I want to / or don‘t want to read this one. Sometimes I feel I‘m only really healing from it now, it‘s a long journey. It‘s good this book seemed to help you in some small way Trish. That‘s really good ♥️X X 1w
TrishB @Cinfhen it‘s important to read the other perspective I think. ❤️ 1w
TrishB @batsy @Cathythoughts we lock all those memories and feelings away most of the time ❤️ totally understand. Different coping mechanisms. 1w
JennyM Thanks for sharing, Trish. Beautiful review. 1w
Caroline2 I know what you mean, I‘m judgmental when it comes to addiction too. Like you say, it‘s a different perspective viewing it from the outside. Not sure I‘m ready to stack this book yet tho.... 1w
TrishB @JennyM 😘 1w
TrishB @Reggie 😘 1w
TrishB @Caroline2 I understand! 1w
JanuarieTimewalker13 I tend to be judgmental also. It‘s bc I have a genetic blood disorder and have seen many friends die of it. So I get massively pissed off when people take a healthy body and trash it. I have zero tolerance for it, and also I had an ex husband too who had addiction problems...I was too naive to see the red flags...never again. 6d

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.

TrishB @batsy you could get the lovely copies and read once they‘re all out 😁 2w
TrishB @Oryx @Moray_Reads I will buy another one as well to actually read!! 2w

Brought this one due to @Reggie and I see @Lindy enjoyed too! Psychological thriller or sci-fi or horror....could be any of those. Good read, similar vibe to Under the Dome.

Lindy 👍Elizabeth Knox is great. 😊 2w
Reggie Ughhhh, the part where the girl realizes that the guy was hoping the other sister was the one who would survive in the body. That broke my heart. Glad you liked it!!! 2w

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
