I took advantage of the Book Outlet Black Friday sale to buy books for some 2019 challenge prompts.
Let me know if you think any of these are a waste of time. I can always use them for my LFLibrary. 🙃
Hi Littens! Sorry I‘ve been MIA lately... those newborn days, whew! I forgot how hard they can be, haha. A little bit of housekeeping:
• Today I am sending out The Butterfly Garden for #LMPBC #groupT to @the-flashley
• I am also sending Arrowood out to @shendrix413 for #whodunitthesequel
• @CrowCAH Look! I finally had a chance to teach myself how to knit! I‘m learning on this chunky yarn before I use the beautiful yarn you sent me. I love it!
I really wanted to love this one! New York City and knitting! However, it tried to do too much. Every character but Georgia was underdeveloped. Why should I care about these other people? I did not even get a true sense of Georgia‘s daughter or her father. Additionally, the writing was quite slow in places. So, I give this one a just ok.
The most wonderful KNITTING package from @CSeydel 🎉🎉 Carrie, thank you so much! I love it all. I have always wanted to learn to knit and it was SO thoughtful of you to send something for each of my boys. I love the scarf you sent, the booties are DARLING, and my son loves the hat! I cannot wait to give knitting a try! Thanks for your tips and letter!
I don't have a picture but I should have posted a review.
I recently reread this book, when i discovered there is a third. In which i hope to reread the second book, so i can read the third.
Basically it is about a single mom, that owns a yarn shop. And specializes in knitting. What was once a casual meet up with regulars, friends and one determined woman hoping to finish an interesting thesis.. On a Friday night turned into so much more
I haven‘t read this yet, but it‘s on my shelf. I‘m a hooker (crochet) but I saw @Dana1084 loves to knit while listening to audio books. Can‘t believe I‘ve never done that! Will think of you while I read this, and will have to try this wonderful idea soon!!
I had started this audiobook in January, then the e library took it after 14 days! I couldn‘t get into it. I‘ve decided to finish books I started and abandoned, so I checked it out again. It started to pick up half way through. It‘s the tale of love lost and found, friendships found in unexpected ways, growth in dreams. Glad to have listened to it in my work commute, helped pass the time.
This quote instantly made me think of my beloved Gran. It‘s so weird to think it‘s been 7 months since her passing. I miss this lady with a fierceness. I‘m so glad to have had the pleasure to be her granddaughter. #grandparents #alzsucks #love
Currently Reading and Knitting....
1. Usually something fluffy, like the book equivalent of a chick flick.
2. That one by The Beatles where they just repeat the same line over & over. Drives me 🍌🍌
3. Immediate family, yes. But there‘s only four of us
4. Not great, think the only challenges I‘ll complete are my Goodreads goal & the Eclectic Readers mad-lib back in June
1. The "bro country" stuff. It's awful, but catchy ?
2. I like the beginning of seasons, by the end, I'm done with it ❄️☔️☀️?
3. Fiction followed by nonfiction ?
4. Shrimp & grits with green chiles ??
This was not a perfect book and it took me forever to get into it but I only paid 25 cent for it at the flea market so I wanted to finish it. It is a intresting story about a group of women there troubles and how they strive throughout life. Not a great read but enjoyable I may even read the sequel one day.
Im really trying to work more o reading more books I already own. I've returned all my library books but a few that have high waits our are club reads. I'm going to try hard not to cheak out many books and work my way through my shelves starting with these. One down working on Ove and starting another. A girls got yo have #goals
These four will hopefully go to nice homes. I intend to release them into the wild at a knitters meet-up this afternoon. It's raining, so I have to let them go somewhere dry.
Listened to this on audio. It's hovering between a pick and a so-so for me. I didn't enjoy the audiobook reader but I found the story to be sweet and for the most part heartwarming. Definitely more of an intense plot then I expected though. A pretty average 3-star book for this one.
This book reflected the lives of multiple woman, all with their own personal issues. On the outside every character looks and seems perfect. It shows how hard life in the big city can really be. How it takes a group of strong loyal women who have your back through it all. This really inspired me.
Just finished listening to this one. Only so-so for me. I kept thinking the book was ending but then the story would keep going for another several chapters. I also found the multiple character narratives were sometimes difficult to follow in the audiobook.
