Pg 141. “Humanity had chosen the land over the sea millennia ago, and sometimes [...] she thought the sea still held a grudge. Breakups were never easy, and while humanity was hot and fast and had had plenty of time to get over it, the oceans were deep and slow, and for them all change had happened only yesterday. The seas did not forgive, and they did not welcome their wayward children home.”

1. Patrick O‘Brian is pretty singular, I think; he manages to be poetically verbose, funny, epic, and meaningful in turns, with a classic-literature feel that‘s still extremely readable.
2. Count the Stars by Barbara Cartland. I picked it up as research while I was trying to write a romance novel, and ended up actually enjoying it.

Hey guys, do you like poetry? I write a bit. It's pretty basic and dumb. But, still would love to hear your thoughts. #poetry #sea #love

#BookReport 51/19

This week I finished three books.

I was underwhelmed by both In Hazard and Picnic at Hanging Rock.

Fleishman is in Trouble is a book that will stick with me mostly because of its unlikable characters. I was so annoyed by the things that happened, but they made for a great discussion in the comments below my review and that does make a book special I think.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Was it Picnic at Hanging Rock with the extra chapter? 1mo
Megabooks Fleishman is definitely a thought-provoking book! (edited) 1mo
Cinfhen Sorry you had a meh week of reading/ hope enjoy your next weeks of reading 🤓 1mo

Kalalalatja Now I‘m even more interested in Fleishman. Somehow, I don‘t feel very compelled to pick it up, despite all the great reviews 🤷‍♀️ 1mo
BarbaraBB @Kalalalatja It is very American I discovered thanks to @Megabooks I‘d be interested in your opinion as a European! Same goes for you @Cinfhen I am looking forward so what you‘ll think once you‘ve read it! (edited) 1mo
Cinfhen I can‘t wait!!!!!! 1mo

Since I read fiction, nonfiction, ya, and graphic novels, I cheated and picked 10 from each category so I didn't have to narrow down too much. Choosing these was like picking which pet or kid I love more...😂

Here's my #Top10oftheDecade #NonfictionEdition.

Any friends who have not already done this, I'd love to see your picks.

Scochrane26 I didn‘t put the Mister Rogers bio on my list, but I loved it. 1mo
Addison_Reads @Scochrane26 I still want to go watch the Tom Hanks movie too. Have you seen it? 1mo
Scochrane26 @Addison_Reads Yes, I saw it during thanksgiving. It‘s really good but not a bio exactly. The main focus is on a reporter who interviewed mister Rogers & developed a friendship. It had some powerful moments, & Tom Hanks is amazing. 1mo
Crazeedi @Addison_Reads just saw the movie with my girls, my youngest and I had a daily routine of Mr Rogers when she was little. We loved it, lots of good cry moments 1mo
