Station Eleven: A novel | Emily St. John Mandel
post image
Pickpick

As a pandemic works it‘s way around the globe, we experience connections with characters, objects and stories. Could not put down... so many story and time lines that I couldn‘t wait to see how they resolved and connected. HBO is filming a series of this in Chicago now- interested to see if it will live up.

Zone One: A Novel | Colson Whitehead
post image
Mehso-so

A genre I don‘t typically read, but wanted another Whitehead book after The Underground Railroad. Stories of Last Night and survival bounced me around a bit, and I seemed to lose focus.

Djspens Have you read the Nickel Boys? Another great Colson Whitehead book. 3w
5280reader @Djspens It‘s definitely on my list! I heard great things :) 3w

Such a powerful read. Elements of fantasy woven with moving plot as Cora escapes from Georgia and moves along the Underground Railroad.

Note to others- tidying is addictive and Kondo‘s books should not be read during a readathon #24b42020 because you will get sucked in! Didn‘t read as long as I wanted to today because I tidied recipes and donated clothes!

Hoping to finish a few, start a few, and enjoy a reread of Pillars. Met my goals already for 2019- #MMDchallenge #LitsyAtoZ and 50 books for the year so I don‘t feel under pressure. Thanks again for hosting this longer event- even my hubby is going to participate this year! #24b42020

An advent tradition in our house is to read this series of 25 tiny holiday books, tales, and poems. The description to this book is not accurate! As we Marie Kondo‘d our Christmas decorations this year- my 16 and 13 yr old kids would not let this book go as they shared the joy it has brought them over the years!

Really enjoyed how this book unfolded slowly throughout letters to one another. Tina Hopgood, a farmer‘s wife exchanges letters with Danish museum curator, Anders Larsen. From the mundane and daily experience to the depth of existence, they cover and share so much together.
