It's a long, an heteroclite bunch of things that make a kinda nasty soup of cliches on race, women, drugs you name it it's there. I was taken a bit by surprise because this series had a better than average outlook with these subjects. Big herring... the add on of cocktails recipes. When the bath bubbles fragrances, lunch picnic food and child abuse are on the same level it's time for me to reconsider if I'm still on board with the series.
Depression, grief, survivor guilt. All of this are the fondation of this slice of Smith‘s memoirs. I liked the slow spiral of her life. The flashes of brillance drowned into her everyday grey, monotonous life. Grief is a hard lover. Smith is also a fan of procedural tv shows and also a fangirl. Her Doctor is Ten. Her writing flows effortlessly. Depressing not joyful, still really good. #booked2019 #spring #featuringamusician
The Library of Congress digitalized early American children books and they are now available online. This is librarian and vintage book fan dream.
Then there are four. #readinggandwatchinghockey
Short and sweet. This is a smart, fun, short yet emotional window into a side character, Regina aka Reggie, Portia's nerdy, smart, geeky, internet entrepreneure, twin.
Cole's in less then 200 pages makes the two characters solid, with multiples layers with a touch of anime fairy tale.

Game 5. ⭐️ win and they are off to the Conference final. Seguin, Benn and Radulov have to keep on with the magic.
The novella is good. This Alyssa Cole's universe is very nice to come back to.
This came across my library rss dash today. I love Worldcat. I have read 27 of these. Which is not bad considering I'm French Canadian. It's pretty much anglo-american centric.
Anna Karenina is the one I'm reading from this list on and off these days.
It was good. It's shining part is My Ngoc Tran aka Esme. She is real, strong, full of life, a little strange, in a good way. She kept me reading and reading this unusual love story that starts out of necessity. My finds a way out of poverty, a better life for her family. Khai thinks he gets a way out of being set up by his mother but he gets someone to care about in his own way. Someone who learns who he is and loves him. All of him. #netgalley
Half way through this one. It's good. i haven't read the first book from this author. I like it.
So...game 5... in St-Louis. ⭐️ need to push the Blues into the corner and get back to Dallas with a win.
#readingandwatchinghockey. But first Carolina might 🧹 NY
A very interesting world building. It lagged it places, the resolution of the plot as it was came really fast. But... the world building is amazing. The characters are alive and feel real. The world feels real. Lots of strings of plot than are dangling and are worth pursuing. #booked2019 #bookedspring
Passed the 80% mark and it's still full action and no resolution in sight. Still very engaging storyline.
⭐️ in victory green tonight. Go Stars!!!!
Game 2 Erik Karlsson is playing like.... well... Erik Karlsson. Trying to finish this one tonight. It's good but I have no idea where it's going. Still very cool world building.
In order to help for #summersantagoespostal
Goodreads : writerlibrarian my to read is a mix of titles I own and titles I don't have.
LibraryThing : writerlibrarian these are the books I own and or have read
Litsy to read : I cleaned it down to books I don't have
New Lacombe from my trip to the bookshop. ❤️
Goal is to get to 50% . It's interesting, a little more paranormal than I usually read but not bad.
Game 2 in St-Louis. Dallas needs to win one on the road.
Funny and tender. Two people who find tenderness, passion, support and love in the most unlikely person. Freddie and Griffin are adorable and not in a sticky, too cute way. I like Lucy Parker's plotting, writing. Her main characters are fun and act like grown ups, are there for each other, listen to each other. Short cut summary. Amy Pondsmeet Draco Malfoy theater AU. With Jane Austen characters thrown in for fun. This was a #NetGalley ebook.
Game 6. Toronto can take the series this afternoon.Go 🍁
Game 5. 🍁 in Boston. Do or die kinda. They need to win tonight.
1️⃣ Mystery historical, paranormal or modern; Romance historical or contemporary; non-fiction art history
3️⃣ Horror and New Adult
4️⃣ Historical romance
5️⃣ More an author than the genre Clive Barker's Abarat
6️⃣ Da Vinci Code
7️⃣ @tournevis @gradcat
Game 4. 🍁 can push Boston into the cables. Lucy Parker's new novel in her London series so far is funny, sweet and fluffy. Just what I need to get over my team being out. #readingandwatchinghockey
Game 4. 🐧 could be 🧹. I'm starting on my netgalley Lucy Parker.
Adorable YA rom-com. I liked the relationship's journey. Both Dimple and Rishi are their own person, have some growing up to do, are passionate about what they want, even if it's for the wrong reasons.
It lagged a bit in the pace, for me but I'm not the target audience for this.
Diverse, romantic, a beta hero, a wonderful heroine who knows what she wants and gets something she didn't know she wanted. Smart, romantic and diverse. Lots to love.
Game 3 in TO. I end up watching more than reading. I'm hoping to reAlly finish this one tonight. Later, ⭐️ at home.
Game 2 in progress ⭐️ and Preds are tied after 2 periods. Game 3 🍁 in.Boston in a few. Should finish the novel tonight.
#readingandwatchinghockey Nashville won in OT.
Playoff nails. Go 🐧. Two headed monsters will prevail.
Game 2. YA novel still very good.
Boston vs Toronto. Repeat from last year.
Most wonderful time of the year... 🏒 playoff time. I've been MIA the last few days... work, weather and tiredness did me in.
Still reading this really adorable YA . 🐧 are in Long Island. We'll see...
Now I know I've got to
Run away I've got to
You don't really want it any more from me 🎶
How I loved this series. I didn't run away when I should have and now... it's #taintedlove for me.
Now who do I send my complaint about the ear worm? 🤣🤣🤣

Last game of the regular season. Then the playoffs.
Kazuo Ishiguro was as good as I expected it to be. Stylish prose, characters obsessed with getting things done their way. A dream like quality to the narration and an ending all in tones of grey. I loved it.
@Cinfhen @Reviewsbylola @Mdargusch @emilyhaldi
Hockey night do or die. 🐧 must win tonight to keep their destiny in their hands.
