A dear friend bought this book for me...I guess she thought I needed to find my true direction. It was fun to read, reminds me that I deserve a stay at Esalen!

Mehso-so

#UnpopularOpinion I was SO looking forward to the final book of Kent Haruf‘s Plainsong Trilogy but this one did not deliver. It was a flat storyline with caricatures more than characters. All the charm and heart I felt in the first two books were lacking for me in this one. I was hoping to have one last visit with some beloved residents of Holt but unfortunately no prior characters were included ( except for a passing comment) Disappointing ending

RachelO Oh no - that‘s sad ☹️ 2d
erzascarletbookgasm Considering it‘s the last book in a trilogy, that‘s so sad 😞 2d
Cinfhen I know 😭😭im really disappointed @RachelO @erzascarletbookgasm the other two were excellent so there‘s that!!! 2d

Hooked_on_books I hate it when that happens! So disappointing. 2d
Cinfhen It has a 4.9 rating on GoodReads so it‘s definitely an #UnpopularOpinion @Hooked_on_books 😛 2d
TrishB Oh no! Haven‘t got to second yet, so this will be a while off. 2d
Cathythoughts Beautiful pic ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ 2d
Cinfhen I would say you could even skip this one @TrishB Thanks @Cathythoughts happy flowers fix almost EVERYTHING ♥️ 2d
4thhouseontheleft That's too bad! I actually never made it past the first book. 2d
Cinfhen You should read book Two @4thhouseontheleft it was REALLY GOOD 💜 2d
Kalalalatja I still need to read the first, but I loved Our Souls at Night, so hoping I‘ll love it, too! 🤞 2d
Balibee146 That's disappointing but sounds like you could read the first two and consider them a duology? 22h
Cinfhen That‘s a great way of looking at things @Balibee146 absolutely stick with books one & two and forget all about book 3!!! 20h

Finished this book last night and this amazing street taco kit from Albertsons. I recommend both. The book was not what I was expecting but It gave me all the feels Read it with tissues, there will be some ugly crying at the end. @Clwojick @StayCurious @Bookworm54 #wintergames #teamnutcracker

Tea advent calendar day 5 is Maple Syrup Oolong. No need to add sugar or honey. There is some green tea so slight grassy taste but the maple helps. #wintergames #teamnutcracker @Clwojick @StayCurious @Bookworm54

Wow....I cannot express how much I loved this book, even better then Plainsong. This was 100% in my wheelhouse. This was a very quiet novel and literary fiction at its core. If you like Jane Smiley you will absolutely love this one.

Tamra I love Haruf. 1w
Soubhiville Better than Plainsong? Wow. I just found a used copy of this, and can‘t wait to read it. 1w

@Soubhiville I didn‘t venture out in the snowstorm yesterday, so the next Owl Post Book will be a few days late, sorry!!!

Little_Reader @MooseGurl I had the same issues with snow. Your book was sent yesterday. 1w
Soubhiville No worries! I was wondering if we would be on schedule through the holidays or give it extra time. I think I‘ll be ok either way. 1w

I have busy day with family in town but I am going to take a moment to enjoy this cuppa. Today‘s advent tea is David‘s Breakfast blend. I loaded it with sugar and honey. And it a great way to start the day. #wintergames #teamnutcracker @Clwojick @StayCurious @Bookworm54

One holiday tradition is I will get everyone frozen hot chocolate and give it to the kids at school pick up on Monday‘s in December. A little something for them to look forward too start their week. I started this book today and am enjoying it so far. I hope to tick off a few bingo squares with it. #wintergames #teamnutcracker @Clwojick @StayCurious @Bookworm54

This is not the mystery/thriller I thought I was getting, but it is a good book! The focus is on character development, with building suspense and a satisfying ending. I‘m glad I stuck with it!
