In my opinion I thought the book was very sad but I liked & my friend was right it was very good I couldn‘t put it down.

Reagan I actually got so emotional at the end. Loved it. 8h
Kimberlone I recommend reading Into Thin Air if you liked this one-I think it‘s Krakauer‘s best 2h

I don‘t have this book I can‘t get to the library today. I just finished my other book & so I want on the archive on the internet to barrow a book they let you barrow a book for 13 days. It‘s usually old books that I can‘t get my hands on anywhere else. I never read this book I know I‘m late to the party. I want to read it because ever time I watch ID Disappeared usually they have this book.

The Snow Child | Eowyn Ivey

The children‘s book in this photo was one of my favorites as a child. I wasn‘t sure when I picked up the novel if it was a re-telling of the same story and was pleasantly surprised that it is, of course Ivey has added so much to the story. The vivid details of the snowy scenes and wildlife are written with beautiful imagery. This was a great book to read in December. I also enjoyed the magical realism, how it can be read as magical or perhaps not.

Prairiegirl_reading I love the novel so much! It‘s a perfect winter read. For sure an all time favourite!! I had never heard of the fairy tale before reading the novel and I have to say I‘m kind of jealous! 2d
CherylRussell I love this book. ❤️❤️ 2d

Last week‘s reading did not go as planned, but I enjoyed it. I finished 2 in progress books and 2 random books to discuss with students. I also tried and returned Trick Mirror, just not in the mood for essays at the moment.

This turned out to be an adapted version (no accusation here @Bookwormjillk - it isn't well marked at all!) so it felt very simplistic and choppy. I think I am going to try to read the original version sometime and see if it flows better. This wasn't a cheerful book, but in the wilderness only the strong survive!

Bookwormjillk I know! I was disappointed too! I didn‘t realize until I finished. 3d
TheAromaofBooks @Bookwormjillk - it's all good. Although I've never quite understood the point of adaptations. It just seems like kids should read the books when they're old enough to read the actual book. 2d

Alaskan Holiday: A Novel | Debbie Macomber

Will this book change the world? No. Does it pass the (flawed) Bechdel test. No. Is it a fun bit of seasonal escapism? Yes. Hardened feminists won‘t enjoy this, but I found it a nice bit of light relief after some quite heavy books recently. And it‘s my first proper #HolidayRead for #WinterGames #ReadNosedReindeer @StayCurious @Clwojick

StayCurious Not all books have to change the world haha. +21 2d

It was a pretty cute holiday love story. I wasn‘t expecting too much out of it but I still thought it was a light, easy read. Some of the dialect seemed unnatural between the characters, which was hard to get through at times. But overall it was a cute, fun #HolidayRead #WinterGames #TeamFestivus

Carrie wants to report more serious stories, so her editor sends her to find the reclusive writer Finn Dalton. Her search takes her to Alaska during a snowstorm, and of course, the romance that follows is exactly what you would expect from Macomber and full of #holidaycheer. A fun reread. #deardecember #wintergames #merryreaders #holidayread
