#AuldLangSpine wrap up
- I finished and loved the tagged book, which was not on my radar before this list from @peanutnine
- Started the Murderbot series. Liked book one enough that I‘ve put a hold on book two at my library (just need to pick it up!)
- Currently reading The Charm Offensive, which is adorable and will be perfect to continue with into February

I will definitely be reading others from Sara‘s list! Thanks @monalyisha for organizing

peanutnine I'm so glad you've enjoyed these books! Your posts about Charm Offensive are making me want to do a reread 😅 6d

I have postponed reading this one for so many years, if only I knew I wouldn't be able to put it down once I started it.
The story is overwhelming but so compelling, with beautiful prose soaked in magic realism; an imaginary family's saga spanning on more than a century in the fictional town of Macondo, where the ordinary blends with the extraordinary, and local myths mask true historical events, uncovering what is truly meaningful for humankind.

JamieArc I consider this book to be the one that has been on my TBR the longest. Perhaps this is the year I get to it… 7d
Cazxxx Wow look at the snow 😍 7d
IuliaC @JamieArc the same for me! Maybe everything really happens at the right time 7d

IuliaC @Cazxxx I had lost all hope of seeing snow in Bucharest this winter, but here it is, finally 😍 20 years ago we used to have really heavy snowfall, but over the last 5 years almost none... 7d
Cortg I have it sitting on my bookshelf, just waiting patiently. I always say this will be the year; maybe it really will be. Nice review. 7d

One after another, people find their way to Lost Lake, looking for something that they weren‘t sure they needed in the first place..

Another wonderful book by Sarah Addison Allen. I love how magical her stories are, and how her characters just come to life on the pages. I always recommend her stories to everyone.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you @peanutnine for putting this on your #ALSpine list! I may never have heard of it otherwise, but now I understand why anytime I post this book, someone says “I love this book!”

A gentle, sweet story about second chances and forgiveness with a delightful cast of characters- flawed humans, but all ultimately just trying to do their best. The magical realism never overpowers the story, but creates a unique sense of place. A joy to read.

While it doesn‘t have magical pie that allows you to hear messages from dead loved ones as you dream, the Bluebird Cafe has the same sort of good home cooked food the Blackbird has in this book (though more Midwestern- this is Iowa!). A good stop for some eggs before going to my iron infusion (and both the stop for food and the infusion are good for me to have time to read my #ALSpine book!)

peanutnine Sounds like a great cosy cafe! 😊 3w

I really liked this. It had some magical parts in it as well but a good kind. It‘s also dual perspective about twins who are colored but one is able to pass for white, never realizing the truth until her grandmother passes.
