Citra182
This Is Happy | Camilla Gibb

You can let go only when your sense of self, your cohesion, no longer depends upon the idea of them, an idea that remains for a long time inextricable from the very idea of yourself. (Part 2)

quote
Citra182
This Is Happy | Camilla Gibb

In the absence of someone, even someone who has caused you great injury, the very idea of them can still be self-sustaining. You hold on because you are holding on to something that keeps your sense of self intact. You have come to know and understand yourself in relation to this person. (Part 1)

I almost bailed on this one. Then it sucked me in and I couldn‘t stop reading. The ending wasn‘t the best. There is a lot of story left to tell. But it‘s supposed to be the start of a trilogy, so I‘m ok with it.

I have 7 library books to work my way through this weekend. I‘m sure I won‘t get to them all, but hopefully I will have time to finish a few. Let the readathoning begin!

Romance, including rom-com, apparently just isn't for me.

I love Canada Reads, even though I am not Canadian or live in Canada. I wind up reading all 5 books every year and will talk to the YouTube repeat while watching it. This year, I am happy because I have 4 of the 5 books. Small Game Hunting is the only one I can‘t get without paying 2x the cover cost due to shipping. I‘m ready! https://www.cbc.ca/books/canadareads/meet-the-canada-reads-2020-contenders-1.543...

BookishTrish If it makes you feel better, I‘m in BC and having a tough time getting Small Game too. The bookstore I went to yesterday had 2 in stock and the clerk could find neither. 2d
NerdyRev @BookishTrish I wonder if they are re-releasing it with a new Canada Reads sticker which is making it hard to find. 2d
BookishTrish I‘d say give it a week or so and it‘ll be more widely available 2d

#CanadaReads2020 shortlist
Since I don't live in Canada the Canada Reads selections can sometimes be difficult to get. One I have coming from my library, one is coming on Overdrive, two are coming as interlibrary loans, and one hasn't been released in the US yet.

LeahBergen I‘m so impressed that you follow Canada Reads when you don‘t live here! ❤️ 2d
Blueberry @LeahBergen haha. I wish there was the interest to do it in the US. I used to live on the US-Canadian border. Back in the days when all our television came from Canada. 1d

It's Canada Reads time! 🇨🇦 🍁 Every year, I'm less and less impressed with the debates that go on during Canada Reads week. Every year, I tell myself I'm not going to bother next time. But somehow, *every year*, I skim the synopsis on the short list and think “Oooh! That book sounds interesting!“ What's a gal to do? So many books, so little time. 🤷‍♀️

JacqMac This is so me. 😂 I both love and hate it. 2d
