These have been on my TBR which one ☝️ of these books should I read next? Also these are only a few lol I have more 😩 so I‘m trying to read what I have before I can buy anymore books 🤓

BrittanyReads Ooohhh!! I haven't read it yet but I'm so excited to read The Spanish Love Deception!! I've been on hold at the library for ages! 17h
Booksarelifeaddict That has been on my tbr for awhile but now I might be thinking 🤔 if I should wait until February to read it @BrittanyReads lol who knows I‘m so Indecisive 17h
BrittanyReads Feb is def a good time for it! Haha the only one I've read is Mexican Gothic. I didn't like it much but I def think I'm in the minority. It's cringy and weird, but it's horror so maybe that's the point 🤷‍♀️😬 17h

BookBelle84 The Song of Achilles or Mexican Gothic! I loved them both 16h
Booksarelifeaddict I heard Song of Achilles made a lot of people cry @BookBelle84 is it really that sad 😞 15h
Booksarelifeaddict That worries me now lol I do enjoy horror but weird idk I just tried to read bunny but had to dnf cause I just couldn‘t follow along and it was pretty weird but so many people say it‘s one of there favs lol @BrittanyReads 15h
5feet.of.fury I‘m reading Song of Achilles right now and it‘s getting GOOD. I haven‘t read that Colleen Hoover, but everyone seems to be enjoying her new one, I‘m reading another one of hers right now; Verity. And I like it, it‘s murky and atmospheric (edited) 13h
Librarybelle I loved The Song of Achilles and Mexican Gothic! 13h
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I LOVE Song of Achilles. Mexican Gothic is good too. 9h
Booksarelifeaddict @5feet.of.fury the only book I‘ve read from Colleen hover was Verity and I really liked it! So I‘m hoping I‘ll like it ends with us since it‘s a total different gene then Verity! 1h
Booksarelifeaddict @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Librarybelle Song of Achilles seems like a popular pick so I might pick it up next 😊 1h

This book is a masterpiece. The entire series has been an amazing adventure of Barcelona through such fascinating characters. I‘m in awe of Carlos‘ unbelievable talent to weave together so many characters over so many books and create this final installment that comes together beautifully. I am grief stricken that it‘s over. RIP, Carols. I‘m grateful you shared your literary talents with the world. #MountTBR

The Sun Also Rises | Ernest Hemingway

Another Hemingway disappointment. Written like a journal, a US Newspaperman stationed in Paris documents a short period in his life amongst his quasi-dysfunctional friends. His imagery is bland, the conversations are banal, the plot is non-existent, and the drunkenness is continual.

To make matters worse I read this immediately following Jane Eyre. Hemingway couldn‘t touch the bottom of Bronte‘s shoe if he were on a step ladder.

Extraordinary #cookbook & #memoir of the author's unconventional life in Spain, Greece, Italy, where she lived in a trullo without electricity for years. Her recipes can be made in modern kitchens. Quote “Poverty rather than wealth gives the good things of life their true significance. Home-made bread rubbed with garlic and sprinkled with olive oil, shared - with a flask of wine - between working people, can be more convivial than any feast.“

The Sun Also Rises | Ernest Hemingway

When I buy a new book, I can't force myself to mark it up or highlight passages. But when I buy an old book like this Modern Library Hemingway, I find the markings someone else has made add to my experience of the book. I'm just weird that way.

Anyway, it's been years and years since I read The Sun Also Rises - it's time for a re-read.

marleed No not at all. Just today I realized a owned a thrifted paperback of the tagged. I pulled it out to set aside for Black History Month in February. I flipped through and saw that it‘s all marked up. I can‘t wait to read and find out why all the markings! 5d
stevesbookstuf1 I have a bunch of Modern Library editions I bought in used book stores some years back, just because I love the idea of these small hard covers. I've never read one of them, so I gave myself a goal of reading one of them each month this year. I am guessing I have more markings to find... 🙂 5d
Leftcoastzen I get it completely.😁 4d

So, I finally reached the Pyramids of Egypt after a delightful journey through the pages of “The Alchemist”. Thank you @Sharv_Sona for inviting me to this exciting and enlightening journey.
