JamieArc Have fun!!! 5d
Bookwormjillk Enjoy! Such a cliffhanger in this chapter! 5d
TheAromaofBooks So did she actually know the contents of both wills?? I honestly felt confused about why she wouldn't hand him what he wanted. Like, it's literally what her job was for the night, to take care of him and get him whatever he couldn't reach from bed. I skipped ahead a little to find out what the wills were, and that left me even MORE confused about how she handled this! 4d
BarkingMadRead @TheAromaofBooks I don‘t think she did? I‘m not sure, but I think she is worried that if it benefits her or Fred, the family will accuse her of something, and she is trying to avoid that. I could totally be wrong lol 4d
bthegood safe (and fun) travels - 4d
TheAromaofBooks I do think that's what she was getting at, but it also feels like her unwillingness to help him could just as easily be misinterpreted by this pack of suspicious vultures, so I guess I would have handed him the stuff and let him have his way! 😂 4d
Bklover Mary was frustrating this chapter, although I get her point. I‘d definitely have taken the money. And I‘d have given him the will. It‘s his will and he should be able to tear it up if he want to. @BarkingMadRead Have a GREAT time!!❤️ 4d
Clare-Dragonfly Hmm, I am not reading along so it‘s not fresh in my mind, but I remember it being very clear to me that Mary Garth (the best) is making the more difficult but more ethical choice! 4d
CoffeeNBooks Why wouldn't she just call his lawyer to witness him destroying one of the wills and giving her the money? Then his family couldn't accuse her of anything. 3d
CoffeeNBooks Or am I confused and misunderstanding something? 3d
BarkingMadRead @CoffeeNBooks he didn‘t want anyone else there, I‘m not sure why 3d
CoffeeNBooks @BarkingMadRead It just seems odd, though, that she wouldn't follow his orders about the will and the money, but she followed his orders about not wanting anyone there when that could have solved the issue. Perhaps she thought his vulture family members still would have found fault with that. 3d

TheAromaofBooks @Bookwormjillk - While I agree, in fairness Dorothea went on and on and on about how what she wanted from marriage was to learn from/help someone “wiser“ than her. I think she's starting to realize that that isn't a great balance for a marital relationship... although sadly I don't think she's realized that Casaubon isn't really that wise 🙄 1w
BarkingMadRead @TheAromaofBooks very good point! 1w
quirkyreader I always thought that Casaubon wanted something “wild” that he could tame in his own “image” of womanhood. 1w
BarkingMadRead @quirkyreader I get the feeling he wasn‘t expecting any push back! 1w
Bklover @quirkyreader Yes! Oh, and young. She must be young. They‘re easier to train. 🙄 1w

peanutnine @Bklover that phrase gave me icky chills 1w
Bklover @peanutnine Yes, me too, and for several reasons!!! 1w
CoffeeNBooks @TheAromaofBooks It made me very angry that Casaubon just wanted to replace his secretary with Dorothea, but you make a good point- perhaps Dorothea gave him the wrong impression of what she wanted. 1w

TheAromaofBooks I keep thinking back to the earlier chapters where Cheltam wanted Brooke to make Dorothea wait to get married, and Brooke was pretty much like “whatever“ - was it better for Dorothea that Brooke let her have what she wanted and now she reaps the consequences, or for him to control her life more by forcing her into a long engagement that may have exposed Casaubon's selfishness before their marriage? 2w
BarkingMadRead @TheAromaofBooks I was thinking of that today as well! I really wish they had made her wait. It would still have been her decision, but maybe that decision would change! 2w
TheAromaofBooks I definitely felt like Brooke's choice came from laziness, not a wish to see Dorothea live her best life. Dodo really annoyed me at first, but now I just feel so bad for her, and even somewhat admiring of her determination to still be the best wife she can be, even while she's realizing that Casaubon isn't everything she dreamed. 😕 2w
Bookwormjillk @TheAromaofBooks I read something comparing Brooke to Mr Bennett and I thought that was spot on. 2w
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk yes! Wow, it didn‘t occur to me, but that‘s definitely a good comparison! 2w
KristiAhlers @Bookwormjillk I completely agree with you. I have to say the more we read the more Dodo is growing on me. At the beginning I wasn't that much of a fan. 2w
Bklover @Bookwormjillk I agree! Hadn‘t occurred to me. Oh, and @KristiAhlers yes she‘s growing on me (a bit) too! 2w

CoffeeNBooks @Bookwormjillk I had a hard time focusing on this chapter (I thought it was really boring, and too long 😬) 3w
CoffeeNBooks So they had to vote for chaplain, it was all political, it seems like they already knew who everyone was going to vote for, and Lydgate ended up voting for Tyke (even though he really likes Farebrother) because he knew voting in alliance with Bulstrode was the best bet for furthering his career/cause. 3w

Roary47 I really enjoyed this one from King. The book was a chuckster, but it was so fun to read I didn‘t really notice or mind. Normally, I don‘t like time jumping, but King made it manageable so I wasn‘t lost. Yes, he was mostly in the past which helped. I‘m happy with the conclusion as well. I was trying to figure out how the yellow/black card man was connected and that supernatural element made the most sense. 3w
BookwormAHN I also really enjoyed this one. I thought the yellow card men were fascinating. I hope they pop up again in a future book 🤞🏻 Also I loved the scenes with Bev and Ritchie. It was one of my favorites. 3w
BarkingMadRead @BookwormAHN yes! I loved that glimpse of Bev and Richie “mid story” for them! 3w
KathyWheeler @BookwormAHN I hope the yellow card men appear in a future book as well. This is one of my favorite King books. I think he handles the time jumps really well. 3w
bthegood This is one of my favorite King novels - I love that he incorporates characters from other stories (including the town of Derry) but if you didn't read the other stories it didn't take away from this one. I like that he looks deeper than the “butterfly effect“ - he examines the what ifs of falling in love in the past, and wanting to stay with someone (or bring them back with you) - (edited) 3w
5feet.of.fury Loved it! I‘m not the biggest history buff so I am super curious as to how much research was done to the different theories. it‘s such a good story. I loved Sadie and all they went through together. 3w
Erinsuereads This is the first king I ever read! 🙌🙌 And still one of my favorites 😍 I like to recommend this one to people who are king-curious and almost always ita a hit 3w
Reading.w.Dee I second how he creates whole worlds and connects them within each other. I definitely enjoyed that in this one! And I agree, the Yellow Card Man had me extremely curious! There are so many layers to his novels that, even thought it was long, it kept you enthralled the whole time! Thank you for motivating me to read this one! 2w

Bookwormjillk That Vicar. So cynical. Would rather smoke his pipe and look at his collections. This sounds like trouble for Lyndgate. 3w

When we lived in NJ we used to watch this every year during the first snow. Now that we live in SC, we just wait for a cold night! #RIPMartha #borninsincomeonin #losersclub

Liatrek Man I love this one! It‘s so intense I was excited when it showed up on Hulu. 3w
BarkingMadRead @Liatrek it‘s on Hulu?!? That‘s good to know. We have the DVD and I always worry that it will get scratched up! 3w

Just got off the peloton and really need a steamy hot bath. My son just told me he took a shower like 30 minutes ago and he takes notoriously long showers. Like. Allllll the hot water kind of showers. It‘s an anxiety thing, so I don‘t give him grief about it. 🤞🏻 that there‘s enough hot water to make this worth throwing in a Lush bath bomb! 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

kspenmoll Such a soothing reward after your workout! 3w
Ruthiella Hope the hot water lasted! 🤞 3w
BarkingMadRead @Ruthiella thank you, it did!! 3w
peaknit A lush bomb and this book sounds perfect! I‘m just wrapping the book up. Sweet. 3w
