#HomeschoolReads Our #November #ReadAloud is Johnny Tremain. My kids are LOVING the insults, so I have to stop them from calling each other a “pig in a louse.“ 😂 #novemberreadaloud #homeschool #homeschoolmamas #sonlight

#LilliRead #motherandchildconnection
Just loving Lilli‘s philosophical awakening, which makes her miss discussing such matters with her mother.

My mother‘s birthday is November 28th. She died 4years ago at age 92. I am so lucky to have had her for so long. She remained sharp, opinionated, strong,generous, controlling at tomes,demanding of herself & others. I still miss our talks, our laughs, sharing books, wine, the beach, Cape Cod. ❤️

A new book, chocolate soufflé in the oven, and snuggles with the pup after a loooong day.

The Tournament | Matthew Reilly

Excited that the #tob2020 long list is here! 62 books, and I‘ve read 12 (including one im halfway through) which is fewer than I hoped! Some here I‘ve been meaning to read for ages, some I‘ve never heard of. I‘d love to grind through all of them but wow newly released books are expensive. A couple are available in my library as ebooks so I‘ll manage a few more!

8little_paws I've read 10 of them, and have 2 of them on the immediate TBR on my nightstand, and have a number of others I'd like to read. But I have learned that my tastes and the ToB's tastes rarely align well. 6h
merelybookish I didn't realize you had already posted! 5h
BarbaraBB You‘ve read many already! I read only 3... 😨. But I am looking forward to a lot of them! 5h

Suet624 This came to me in my email and I got so excited. I love TOB! And here I was thinking i was only going to read books I already owned. Guess that commitment is getting pushed back again. (edited) 4h
Emilymdxn @merelybookish i love how these events and lists get so many people excited and everyone‘s posting and overlapping on discussing the books!! 4h
Emilymdxn @8little_paws yeah I‘ve disagreed with them a lot in the past too! I love the discussions tho even when I don‘t like the results. What‘s your fave that you‘ve read so far?? 4h
Emilymdxn @BarbaraBB which three??? I always love reading your opinions on lists like this! 4h
Emilymdxn @suet624 I‘m in just the same position! I can scale mount tbr more gradually if it means fitting a few of these in! 4h
8little_paws Probably bangkok wakes to rain or nickel boys. Honestly I haven't been impressed with a lot of 2019 literature. 46m

Cilka's Journey | Heather Morris

Pickpick

Cilka's Journey tells a fictional account of Cilka's life and the horrors that women faced at the hands of Soviet soldiers and fellow prisoners after #WW2 ended. A great read if you want to see how women coped from years of living at #concentrationcamps. It really made me uncomfortable with just minor details of violence

The Sea Queen: A Novel | Linnea Hartsuyker

Man...this book...it took me awhile to get into and get through. I started it, set it down, and read three others before I picked it back up to finish. I don't know why. I loved the first one, and characters were primarily the same though there was a slight jump in time. I didn't really hit my stride in reading this until about the last third. Here's hoping that the next and final book in this trilogy will grip my brain like the first did.
