BkClubCare It is possible, very possible, that ToB discussions will show me how stupid and impatient I am when it comes to great literature 🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 1d
SamAnne 😂😂😂. More geese! More geese! I will be skipping this read. Thank you for the review. 1d

BkClubCare @SamAnne - eeek! I always get nervous when people say they‘ll skip a book — But what if it would be perfect FOR YOU?! 🤣 I am at that point in the TOB list that I have too many books to read. #sigh And no motivation to give them “proper due” (proper DO?!) 18h
Larkken #thoughtitwouldhavemoregeese sums up my general ambivalence about this year‘s list, tbh. @BkClubCare I‘ve been much more impatient with the books on this years list than previous years, and it‘s surprising me! 17h
SamAnne @BkClubCare hah! My TBR is plenty big as it is. 15h
Chelsea.Poole lol!! Where‘s the goose emoji?? 🦆 close enough 🤷🏼‍♀️ 6h
BkClubCare @Chelsea.Poole LOL - I almost emoji-ed the 🦆 but thought I might be ridiculed 🤣 4h

I am not a fan of mystery/thrillers unless they have the warp and weft of “literary fiction” more than a genre formula. I do understand that defining such is difficult! (At least for me…) this one bugged me from the first page. I skipped and tested my way through and read the ending, calling it done. #BookClub #ReadICT #ColorinTitle category #DogsofLitsy #EstherFest #whpg #eBook

xicanti Care! I received your Christmas postcard today, along with a personal apology from the United States Postal Service because there was a small rip in one corner! They encased it in a protective envelope and everything. 4w
dabbe What a face! 4w

BkClubCare @gossamerchild @dabbe - oh! If I could have presented a video from when I placed the book by her and then when I said, “Esther! Look!” And SNAP! I was laughing. So sweet 4w

It‘s a Christmas Miracle! I finished a book with “Christmas” in the title ON Christmas Day! And I loved it. We are fighting the 🦠 germs, sadly, and feel awful, so I needed a sweet/hot romance 💝 to cheer me. I even cried at the end! 😂

Jess861 Is that a griffon? 😍 (edited) 1mo
BkClubCare @Jess861 - yes! This is Copper who is not being helpful as I attempt to do yoga. He is 3, we just adopted him. Esther is our other #whpg, she is 12 yo 1mo
Jess861 @BkClubCare omg too cute - you don't see them around much. My parents have two - 12 and 10 years old. 1mo

BkClubCare @Jess861 - awesome! They are special. We‘ve had 4. Are your parents in the Griffology group on FB? 1mo
Jess861 @BkClubCare - They aren't - only my mom has a fb account and I don't think she really uses it. I'll have to let her know about the group if she does use her account a bit though. 1mo
BkClubCare @Jess861 - 😊💝 1mo
Ruthiella Hope you feel better soon! 🤒❤️ 1mo
BkClubCare @Ruthiella - thanks, (and sadly, most of my worry on this is job-related. Ugh?!) 1mo

Had just burned my #audiobook credit on this when the #TOBshortlist #TOB2023 was announced. I *almost* turned it back in but the terrific reviews told me to listen to it anyway. Glad I did. Carlotta is just too lovable and it humbles me to realize that I need to open my heart and love more. God bless the Carlottas in this blasted world. Bless the down and out, the strivers and the thrivers for being true and positive and lovely.

Megabooks Glad you loved this too! 1mo
Cinfhen I loved this one, too! 1mo

A book about the love of friendship, finding one‘s way in the world with support, spurning that support and coming back to it. I enjoyed it a lot and honestly felt it to be a more mature book than AJ Fikry. Has a higher thread count. Zevin is one to keep watching. I am curious abt her screenwriting, too. #tob2023
Esther‘s turn to pose with the book; she is experienced at this. #DogsofLitsy #whpg #EstherFest

Ruthiella That‘s encouraging to hear! I DNFed A. J. Fikery. Not to be too Grinch-like, but it was way too heartwarming for my tastes. 😜 And yes, Esther can strike a pose! She‘s a pro! ❤️🐶 (edited) 1mo
Readerann Looking forward to this one! 1mo
tpixie 🌺 🐶 🌺. We‘re planning on reading this for @litsybookclub this year. I can‘t wait! 1mo

This book has been on my tbr for FAR TOO LONG and I am embarrassed that a decade has gone by since acquiring. It is my June #BookSpinDouble and it is a shame that THAT is what is finally kicking me in the butt to read it!

Esther won‘t even look at me. #DogsofLitsy #whpg

Editing this post because I finished the book (and the bottle of wine) and don‘t have the energy to find a thoughtful photo. Book is good. I love E.Taylor‘s writing. This is May‘s #BookSpin!! 😵‍💫🍭
