Somebody left sugar cookie bars in the break room! Yumm!

And the colors compliment my #currentread so beautifully, it's as if it was meant to be ?

Pardon the bite, but I'm a real person, REALLY eating the food. I couldn't resist!

As @MrBook would say: "Happy reads & happy eats! ???"

Librariana @readordierachel - Hit "Send" accidentally - lol! At any rate... it had like... edible glitter on top and it was sweet and delicious and I was lucky I got to enjoy one bar because they were gone by lunch time! 3w
Librariana @MrBook - Imitation is, after all, the sincerest form of flattery. Not trying to excel or surpass by any means... but we do have to emulate one of Litsy's best! 😊 3w

After dropping off my carrito 🚗 (little car) to get new winter shoes installed on it, the hubby and I stopped at one of our favorite breakfast places for some fresh-squeezed orange juice, a half portion of goulash, and strawberry crepes 😊😍 We definitely had hungry hearts and left with full bellies!

Book report to come later, @Cinfhen 😁

And I'll even have a sweet 🍩 update for you, fellow Littens

Cinfhen Looking forward xx enjoy that scrumptious breakfast 3w

#weeklyforecast

So the plan is to finish The Book of Essie before Friday because that's when my book club meets ?

Hungry Hearts is a collection of 13 YA short stories that "explore the intersection of family, culture, and food." Perfect for November, me thinks!

I've previously posted A Fire Story which is a graphic memoir detailing the author's own devastating experience with the California wildfires. Continued in comments ⬇️

@Cinfhen

Librariana The tagged title (in this comment) just looks lovely and eerie and witchy and the illustrations are 😍😍😍😍 1mo
Cinfhen Once again, fabulous graphics!!! And I love the actual weather forecast ( doesn‘t look too bad 😉) 1mo

Mehso-so

Short stories by different authors all set in the same world, in the same neighborhood of a city. I didn‘t really get into the world, how it all ties together. It felt loose and a little sloppy, trying to tie it all together.

Don‘t read hungry. Honestly a really great collection of stories that tie together. Really well written and will leave you craving the foods in the stories. Still can‘t get over Rebecca Roanhorse‘s story.
