After Eli | Rebecca Rupp
post image

An older middle grade book about a boy who‘s older brother dies in Iraq. It‘s less about a family dealing with grief and more about a 13-year-old spending his summer falling in love and starting to figure out who he wants to be. It‘s a bit meandering and low on plot, featuring more character introspection. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This story is sweet, heartbreaking, and funny. I really like that it touches on toxic masculinity but doesn‘t get preachy or pedantic. What I especially love about this book is that it‘s told entirely from Matt‘s perspective - a boy! Can‘t wait to share this one with my students and place it in my classroom library! Check it out! 4 ⭐️

The world is a sad place today. We lost our sweet, spunky, mischievous boy Froedrick last night. He‘d been sick for a little over a week, and last night the Drs finally determined he had cancer either in a major organ or his bone marrow. We had to let him go.

I‘m a little broken today. The world will never be quite the same. 😢💔

Hug your pets and loved ones.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m so sorry for your loss! I had something similar with my pup last year, from healthy and spunky to falling over randomly and it was some autoimmune blood issue. It was so shocking to have our holy terror of the household be gone so fast.... the loss somehow is worse when it‘s so unexpected. Sending condolences and big consolation hugs your way! 3w

#wintergames #thefilthyanimals #24B42020 These weren‘t exactly fun reads but they have been on my TBR since my Mum passed away. The tagged book was the one that made the biggest difference in processing grief and offers information about an on-line support/writing group. I‘m trying to start 2020 with a better approach to my grief.

Alora Adding these to my TBR. Lost my Dad 5 years ago....❤️Sending Hugs!!🤗 3w
Come-read-with-me @Alora Thanks. I‘m so sorry to hear about your Dad. Grief comes in cycles and waves - take care of yourself ❤️ 3w
rather_be_reading 60 pts for reviews plus 230 pts for 10 per hr. so 291 total! 3w
britt_reads I‘m stacking the tagged book. I lost my mom and my little sister a couple of years ago, just a month and a half apart. It‘s good to have more resources available to help with processing grief. I‘m so sorry to hear about your loss and I‘m glad you‘re taking care of yourself! 3w
Come-read-with-me @britt_reads It must have been so hard to lose them in such close proximity. My heart and prayers are with you. I think you‘ll like the book because it doesn‘t just focus on immediate grief. It recognizes, values, and supports how people grieve in different ways at many points in their lives. ❤️ 3w

Solomon's Oak: A Novel | Jo-Ann Mapson
post image


The book was a cozy read for me...family life, real-life situations, talents we all have hiding inside and waiting to emerge, and just plain heartfelt warmth in the book.

Enjoy the book....I definitely did.

Solomon‘s Oak was very touching….it will make you smile, it will make you laugh, it will make you cry, and it will restore your faith in mankind‘s goodness.

Christmas, Present | Jacquelyn Mitchard
post image

This is not your average, cheerful Christmas story. A tale of life, love, family, loss, & the importance of living in the present, not taking the future for granted. For many, the holidays are tough, remembering loved ones no longer with us, no matter how long it‘s been. This ornament & the turquoise one above are over 70 years old, first ornaments on my grandparents‘ tree. 10 years since they‘re gone. Holidays always make it feel like yesterday.

Crazeedi I love your words, holidays bring back so many memories of my parents and grandparents, seeing Santa in my grandmas teeny teeny trailer, stuffed with 20 plus people in a 12 x 50 space. Grandma making fried chicken and homemade noodles.... 2mo
