I‘m sure at some point, I made a #BucketList to read all prize-winning novels- and while I haven‘t kept up with that goal, this 2014 #PulitzerPrizeWinner is one that I‘m glad I didn‘t miss! I‘m thankful that it‘s my real-life book club choice for this month! Beautifully, lushly written with brief chapters to heighten the pacing, I loved it! Though my mounting dread had me set it aside a few times!! #SelfImprovementSept

OriginalCyn620 That‘s a good one to put on the bucket list! 4mo
DivineDiana A favorite! Gorgeous writing! ❤️ 4mo
TorieStorieS @OriginalCyn620 But a daunting one!! 😊 4mo

TorieStorieS @k.reads.5 I loved it, too!! Hauntingly lovely!! ❤️❤️❤️ 4mo
ljuliel I have yet to read this and no doubt it‘s good. I‘ve seen so many good reviews on it. In fact, I was perusing someone‘s online book reviews the other day , and most of his reviews were negative , many getting only one star. I found it interesting that he raved about how good this was. Apparently he‘s only found one really good book, and this was it. 😊 (edited) 4mo
TorieStorieS @ljuliel Hah! That‘s pretty funny!! I think this one surpassed the hype for me! If you do get around to it, I hope you enjoy it, too!! 🤗🤗🤗 4mo

SharonGoforth @Centique I was afraid it would be too “technical”, but it isn‘t. It‘s really interesting reading! 8mo

I hosted our Christmas book club pot luck dinner last night :)
We all wrapped a book we'd read and wrote a little blurb about it, then each picked one from the pile.
We also drank a bit more than anticipated!
A truly wonderful night.

Tamra So fun! I‘m jealous. 13mo
Tamra What did you give and receive? 13mo
rachaich @Tamra I gave The Margaret Thatcher school of beauty. I haven't opened my gift yet as I won't have many to open know the actual day so saving it :) 13mo

HeatherBookNerd August Osage County - that family is a hot mess. I‘ve seen a production on stage and it was pretty riveting. Like a train wreck you can‘t look away. 1y

Moving on to my next book. Heard a lot about this #PulitzerPrizeWinner, including some mixed reviews, but need to find out for myself. Have only started it last night and I'm really liking the writing so far. #newbook #booknerd #booklover #bookaddict #currentread

BooknerdsLife @Desha Awww how lucky you get to live in Japan! I've only been there a few time but love the country so much! And yes this is from a Japanese restaurant in Hong Kong 😋💛 10mo
Desha That‘s so awesome! I wanted to visit Hong Kong but I didn‘t get a chance to! 👏🏻👍🏻❤️ 10mo
BooknerdsLife @Desha haha Thank you...but believe me, you are not missing much 😆 It‘s just too crowded in Hong Kong! Japan is so much nicer😍 & Taiwan is a very beautiful place to visit too 😊💕 10mo

A kind of sad little play, but nicely written
