The Shadow King | Maaza Mengiste

My friend, Jayatta - though several hundred miles away - still spoils me rotten via her thoughtfulness and the postal service. She keeps me supplied with fresh bookmarks, notepads, journals, and, TODAY a signed copy of this book!🙏🏾🥰🎈#bookishfriends #signedfirsteditions #gratitude #maazamengiste #gifts

TheBookAddict You have a really good friend. Enjoy your gifts. 😊 1mo
readordierachel What a lovely gift! 1mo
Lesliereads @TheBookAddict @readordierachel ....and I had been down in the dumps because of some setbacks but now all I can think about is how the power of moral support, kindness, and delight amongst friends (gifts like those pictured are the whipped cream and cherries on top!) keeps us afloat when other things are letting us down🥰💘. 1mo

Nute This is a lovely post! The warmth of a beautiful friendship can be uplifting! It is a gift that is priceless!💕 3w
Lesliereads @Nute Absolutely!💕 3w
Nute I hope that you are doing well. Life‘s journey can be rocky at times and feel like tribulations are coming from every direction. One of my favorite quotes comes from Winnie-the Pooh (I know, right? Don‘t judge.) - “There is something you must always remember... You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” I love that quote as a self-care message during tough times. Setbacks? You‘ll figure things out!💕 3w

I was going to pick Harry Potter for the best book friendship but I always pick it haha. But the March sisters are a great book friendship. Totally jealous of the sisterly bond. #Readingresolutions #bookishfriends #riotgrams #juneinbooks18 #booksquadgoals Also reminds me of my childhood since it was one of my favorite books. #juneitselectrifying #turnbackthehandsoftime

The Jane Austen Book Club | Karen Joy Fowler

#ReadingResolutions #BookishFriends

The members of the Jane Austen Book Club didn't all start out as friends but over the course of six books, they formed some good bookish friendships. Confession--I liked the movie better--probably because I like most of the cast so much.

LeeRHarry Movie was definitely much better - I agree, great cast 😊 - I‘ve rewatched it so many times, total feel good movie for me! 2y
Amandajoy This may be the only movie I liked better than the book! 1y
Zelma That does look good. Tried the book and didn‘t like it but the movie looks cute. 1y

Dragon Some how I missed the movie. I‘ll have to watch for it. I found the book so-so. 1y
rubyslippersreads I agree with everyone else who preferred the movie to the book. 😊 1y
DebinHawaii @Dragon @Zelma Popular opinion or at least @LeeRHarry @Amandajoy @rubyslippersreads & me say to try the movie! 😆It is cute and fun. Plus Hugh Dancy. 😉 (edited) 1y

"You can trust us to stick with you through thick and thin--to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secret of yours--closer than you keep it yourself. But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word. We are your friends, Frodo."

The best book friendship's ever!

Such a strong and layered friendship between Scarlet and Melanie.


MKbookworm It took Scarlett long enough to realize what a special friendship it was but she got there in the end. 2y
