What a lovely little read ❄️ fascinating little stories for each of the 50 words.
Iceland had my fave word- though I would struggle to pronounce.
No way I‘m going on that ice road in Estonia though, how scary did that sound.

My #gladstonerds book club book finally arrived after about three weeks with royal mail. And it arrived on the same day as the snow itself.

squirrelbrain Perfect timing! ❄️ 2mo

Ibasho. [...] It means "whereabouts". A place where one feels like home, where they feel like themselves.

Ibasho + picture of Gladstone's Library = perfect ?

TrishB Looking forward to it when it arrives 😁 4mo
julesG @TrishB 47% in. You might want to cancel the paperback order and just get the ebook. (just saying) 4mo
TrishB Is that a good recommendation? My brains a bit tired today. 4mo

julesG @TrishB Good start, but it gets "same old" soon after the first body is found. 4mo
TrishB Noted 👍🏻 4mo
rockpools Mine should be arriving from the library this week. Plenty of time to ignore it until after bookclub then 😜 4mo
julesG @rockpools 🤣🤣 I can't believe I've actually read the last two bookclub books and finished before the meeting 4mo
rockpools @julesG Did we ever even mention either of them? 🤔 4mo

Fairy Tale | Stephen King

Mehso-so

#UnpopularOpinion

I didn't really like it. I might have bailed after the first third, but it was a #buddyread.

Anyway, I think the first third is good, and the Fairy Tale part was predictable. A YA novel with a bit of an edge. 😬

Spoiler-ish info in comments

#Gladstonerds @scripturient @Leniverse @Oryx @squirrelbrain

PS: story does not contain a black cat, but #ShadowCat thinks it should have. 😉🐈

julesG Getting rid of the baddie felt anticlimactic, very deus-ex-machina. 4mo
squirrelbrain I already said to @TrishB that I preferred the first part, before the ‘fairy tale‘ kicked in…. Haven‘t finished yet though! 4mo

sarahbarnes Omg this cat is beautiful! 😻 4mo
TrishB Well you finished 😁 4mo
Caroline2 Yeah I nearly bailed too. I just couldn‘t get into the fairy tale world at all. 🤷‍♀️ 4mo
Kangaj1 I absolutely loved the book, and your cat is gorgeous! 4mo
Balibee146 Love your cat one of mine looks very similar. I'm just about to read the last chapter and have really enjoyed it 4mo
julesG @RaeLovesToRead @Graywacke @sarahbarnes @Kangaj1 @Balibee146 Thanks. I think #ShadowCat just grew half an inch from all that praise and love. He's a very introverted cat and camera shy. 4mo
