Gone with the Wind | Margareth Mitchell

#BookReport - The windowsill has remained mostly static this week. I always forget how nice weather cuts into reading time!! I've had so many outside projects underway, but things are starting to come together. I've included a picture of the side garden so you can see where my reading time has really been spent!! I checked off two of my chapter-a-day(ish) reads this week (bottom picture), but only one windowsill book, although I'm almost ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) halfway through Cress. Gone With the Wind continues to ruin my life with its absurdly long chapters, obnoxious Scarlet, and overall completely depressing story. But Scarlet isn't the only one who can grit her teeth and be stubborn, and I'm determined to finish this one, even if I hate it all the way! In contrast, I'm thoroughly enjoying the Jane Austen book, Treasure Island, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (surprisingly!), and #DraculaDaily.⬇ 6d
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) The Ottomans is a bit of a struggle but it is quite interesting even if it is a bit dense. I've been reading it at breakfast, though, so maybe that's the problem! 😂

Only one week until vacation - gotta decide which of these books are coming with me when we head north!!

MoonWitch94 Where are you vacationing? It‘s so hard to choose which ones make the cut. It‘s my biggest packing issue 😂 6d

marleed Your garden is gorgeous! 6d
Ruthiella Your side garden is lovely! 😍 It‘s been a couple of decades since I read GwtW but I do remember being mostly exasperated by Scarlet, but then every so often she‘d redeem herself with her grit and gumption. 6d
JackOBotts Your garden is lovely! 💜 6d
wordslinger42 Oh gosh, this does not encourage me to conquer Gone With the Wind 😂😂😂 6d
Bookwormjillk Beautiful garden! We‘ve had rain every weekend but eventually I will get to mine! 6d
Suet624 How sweet your side yard is. 6d
Cinfhen I LOVE your side garden 🤩🤩🤩I‘d love to see more garden shots 🥰maybe it‘s time you remove Scarlett from the window 😂vacation time- yay!!!! Enjoy 6d
TheAromaofBooks @MoonWitch94 - We are off to Michigan's Upper Peninsula!! Neither of us has been there before and I'm excited about seeing Lake Superior. Anticipating chilly/possibly damp weather, but that just means more reading time 😂 I have definitely been known to load up a milk crate of books to take on vacation before. The paranoia of running out of reading material is REAL!! 6d
TheAromaofBooks @marleed @JackOBotts @Suet624 - Thank you!!! It's a lot of work but so lovely to enjoy. The tall shrubs are hibiscus with double blossoms and look absolutely GORGEOUS when they are in bloom!! 6d
TheAromaofBooks @Ruthiella - I do have a reluctant admiration for Scarlet who really does get stuff done no matter what it takes. But since she is literally the most selfish person I've ever read as MC, it makes it difficult to like her - literally everything she does is to protect herself, even caring for other people traces back to what they give her. She's ruthlessly practical and does literally whatever it takes to keep things going, but... not very likable😂 6d
TheAromaofBooks @wordslinger42 - So many people love this one, but I've found it rather depressing (considering the background), not even remotely romantic, & Scarlet, while full of grit, determination, & bulldogged endurance, is incredibly self-absorbed and not someone I find particularly likable. It's still really interesting from a historical perspective of both the story itself and the time it was written, so it's worthwhile to me... but not one I'll reread😂 6d
TheAromaofBooks @Cinfhen - You know I'm usually about bailing on books that aren't working, but I really do want to finish this classic. It's very interesting from a historical perspective, even if Scarlet makes me so mad sometimes!!! The side garden is coming along very happily. We got the ponds cleaned out today so the fish and frogs (we bought the fish & then they multiplied; the frogs brought themselves haha) are pleased. I love watching them swim around!! 6d
TheAromaofBooks @Bookwormjillk - We have had SO MUCH RAIN in April!!! This week was the first time we've had more than two consecutive days without rain in I can't remember how long! Hopefully you can get out in the garden soon. It's been honestly delightful to get my hands in some dirt this week!!! 6d
MoonWitch94 @TheAromaofBooks Have a fantastic trip!!! That sounds lovely. I bring a bag of books with me on every vacation (even if I‘m flying)! It‘s my thing. And then I buy one somewhere along my way, too. #bookwormproblems 5d
TheAromaofBooks @MoonWitch94 - Yes!! I love buying at least one book on every trip. It's so fun to have a “useful“ memento!! 5d
CindyMyLifeIsLit Your side garden is beautiful—what a lovely reading spot! I hope you find some enjoyment in GWtW. It‘s one of my favorites, partly because Scarlett was my first ever unlikeable but interesting protagonist. It looks like Cary Elwes‘s As You Wish is checked off! Did you finish it? How did you like it? We use Princess Bride to teach archetypes and I love telling the kids the “behind-the-scenes” stories! 😁 5d
TheAromaofBooks @CindyMyLifeIsLit - I do have a reluctant admiration for Scarlet, but it doesn't keep me from wanting to shake her half the time 😂 I absolutely loved As You Wish, it was just so warm and friendly. I would have loved more details and more stories, but thoroughly enjoyed what was there - already passed it on to my parents who are also huge fans of the movie!! 5d

ncsufoxes I‘m going to be curious to see what you think about Hell of a Book & Ancestor Trouble. They are both sitting in my to buy cart. They both sound good but I have too many to read right now. But always good to have future prospects lined up 7d
Amiable @ncsufoxes I‘m about 100 pages into “Hell of a Book” and thoroughly enjoying it. About 140 pages into “Ancestor Trouble” and finding it a bit of a slog. Not enough that I won‘t finish it, but I‘m not in a huge hurry to pick it back up every time I put it down. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 7d
Suet624 Hell of a book was great! 7d
