Woke up early this morning and read this sweet (tho predictable) ya story. After breaking up with her bf who was spending way too much time online Mallory swears off technology and tries to complete a list of her grandma‘s from 1962 with the help of her sister. #palatecleanser #ya #beachread

loved the first 80% of this book, but the last part dragged. A classic rom-com story, Cannie struggles to accept herself, her weight, and get over an ex, but surrounded with good friends, she goes on a journey of self-realization. Fun on audio, tho I wish the narrator had properly pronounced the Yiddish and Hebrew words in the book - small gripe. This was the first book I‘ve read by this author and would read another. Good #palatecleanser

Ok, my gg kick is over. B and S head to St Bart‘s...J comes to some realizations about N. V and D continue their romance and artistic pursuits. I get bored. But may still return to these when I need a trashy palate cleanser. #ya #palatecleanser

The Lost Man | Jane Harper

I rushed to finish this today so I can return it to a book club buddy. Jane Harper is a bit of a sensation here in Australia. She has produced 3 best sellers 3 years. I read her 1st novel The Dry and liked (but didn‘t love) it. I subsequently passed on her second, but heard this, her 3rd, was the best.

I‘m pleased to say I really liked it. A bit of a #palatecleanser whodunnit and very good descriptions of Australia‘s harsh outback.

Freespirit My favourite too. 10mo
CarolynM I did love The Dry, I wasn't so keen on the second one and I think this one is probably is probably the best. (edited) 10mo

What a delightful #palatecleanser. I purchased this #blameitonlitsy for my book club this month as my friend @Jeg prescribed us a #graphicread (of our choice). This is the first of two I intend to read. #nextup Women In Battle 👊

Liatrek Loved this book so much! 11mo
Jeg I‘ve got one of those books about being an introvert. I love it. 11mo

Beautiful morning audiowalk! The book is enjoyable, but a little too chick lit for me. The magic bits are great, though. #audiowalk #litsywalkers

Lenny who is intellectually disabled travels with George across California working on ranches and dreaming of a place of their own. George cares for Lenny and tries to ensure their safety and ability to live and work. This packed an emotional punch I was not expecting. I‘m sitting here now feeling totally walloped. A lot of emotional impact in a very short book. Need a #palatecleanser ASAP. #booked2018 #underdoghero #classic

Tamra I love Steinbeck‘s novellas. In the right hands, short stories and novellas can really be powerful. 1y
Cinfhen Yes!!! So many emotions in this little gem. Great choice for the prompt!!! 1y
Blaire @Tamra @cinfhen yes. I was not familiar with the story and gosh it hit me hard. 1y

Finally reading this after the entire world already has. I was 109th on the library hold list yet my copy looks practically new. I wonder if they traded them out through their jobber!

vivastory I haven't read this one yet. I'll be curious to see what you think. 1y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Im in the middle of this one. Has been in my TBR for years and I figured now is the time! 1y
