Took this picture last night and completely forgot to post. Here are my kids wearing my shoes. #InYourShoes #MagicalMarch

Kshakal Those shoes are beautiful!! 2y
OrangeMooseReads Those are cuuuuuuuuute shoes! 2y
RebelReader Oh my those heels! I could not wear those! I would be over 6ft tall and my feet would be crying. I love wearing heels, but not that high. I love looking at them though so you go girl! ❤️👍🏼😍 2y

Eloise is a mischievous but charming six year old who lives on the top floor of The Plaza Hotel in New York City. She spends her days hanging out with the staff and other guests of the hotel. Now wouldn‘t that be fun and who wouldn‘t like to be in her shoes for a day?

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks That would be interesting!!! 2y
AmyG A favorite! 2y
vkois88 Great choice! ❤ I love the Eloise books. Definitely debated using that name while pregnant 😊 2y
mrp27 Love Eloise. The Plaza Hotel in NYC had an adorable gift shop that featured Eloise, where naturally I bought my copy of the book. They remodeled a few years back and I don't know if it's still there. 2y

#InYourShoes made me think of a cobbler and his bench which then made me think of the story with the elves which then sent me looking for my childhood book on the internet which then sent me down memory lane looking at all the old children's books and now...well...I've fallen down the rabbit hole of the Internet and I can't get up. Send help.


vkois88 Haha I love it!! 2y

LibrarianRyan I really liked this book. And the shoes. I have 2 pair of fancy and expensive Michael@Kora shoes and they are the most uncomfortable things ever. 2y
Christine11 @Louise @vkois88 I wouldn‘t really be able to wear them either - I would probably break my leg 🤣 but they‘re just so pretty! 😍 2y
Christine11 @Cinfhen 😊❤️ 2y
Christine11 @LibrarianRyan High heels are always so uncomfortable aren‘t they?! But they look so gorgeous 😍👠 2y

Ballet Shoes | Noel Streatfeild

#InYourShoes reminded me of the Shoes Series by Noel Streatfeild from my childhood. Ballet Shoes, the tagged book, seemed to be everywhere at that time and constantly saw this edition in the library. 10 years ago Emma Watson even starred in a film of the book! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AOjT_89i4P4

LeahBergen I love the Shoes books. 😍😍 2y
Andrew65 @LeahBergen Somehow I thought you might. 😊 2y

My review is also my pick for today's #inyourshoes prompt, and even related to my #toris5kbdaygiveaway 😊 All the birds with one stone! I really loved this book despite being in a love/hate relationship with John Green's books. As someone diagnosed with several of what are classified as mental illnesses, including anxiety, I found Asa to be entirely relatable. Though mine is *usually* not as crippling as hers, it can get out of control at times.

vkois88 It was interesting to go along on her journey to deal with said illness as she navigates rehashing the death of her father & also her first love. Most people don't like her best friend Daisy, but I loved her. I found her relatable as well. Even though she could be snarky, she was more often than not very supportive of Asa. It's incredibly hard to be friends with someone who has such a debilitating disease. Fan fiction was her outlet. Overall, 5🌟 2y
vkois88 P.s. the copy in my Giveaway is BRAND NEW. Never opened. I have my own copy 😊 #MagicalMarch 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks ❤️❤️❤️you are awesome Tori !! 2y
vkois88 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks thank you ❤❤❤ and welcome back! 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thank you!!! Feeling much better ❤️ 2y

Want to know what a night would be like in my shoes? This is how I like to go to bed at night! I always need a book (or a few ) nearby as well as my puzzles too and then greys anatomy or some other show I've seen a ton on in the background. Lately I've liked my iPad there bc of the books I have on #Libby . #inyourshoes #magicalmarch #readingresolutions #femalelead #booksandshelfiesm18 #colors

vkois88 Great picture! I use my ipad or Kindle to read at night too. 2y
CSeydel Hey, question ... Does Libby replace Overdrive, or what is it? I keep seeing people mention it but I‘ve always used Overdrive. 2y
MissAimz_55 @CSeydel I'm not sure bc I never used overdrive but I love Libby. It's connected to my library card and that's how I get my Ebooks (I think you can get audio books too) from there and I have it on my iPad and iPhone. It's nice to have access to books wherever I go. I'm still very new to Libby too, hope that helps 2y
