I read this for #authoramonth for November. I had previously read Never Let Me Go and I absolutely LOVED it. This one I had a little trouble starting- I knew it was wonderful and I was enjoying it in a peaceful kind of way. And then I found out it was Anthony Hopkins in the movie and suddenly I was emotionally invested. So I loved it, but I needed Anthony to make me love it! #AAM #November

erzascarletbookgasm I loved Never Let Me Go too, one of those books I wished I could read again for the first time. 5d

The Long Winter | Laura Ingalls Wilder

There‘s a group in Litsy reading the whole set of these books, and it got me thinking about this one. It‘s one of my favorites, and I wanted something wintery, and it did not disappoint. I hadn‘t read it in years and years and I enjoyed myself immensely!

perfectsinner Such a great, classic feel-good series for me. This series and Anne of Green Gables series always warm my heart and make me think of my childhood. 6d
Bklover Exactly! It‘s wonderful to go back to childhood now and then! @perfectsinner 5d

This was my first Barbara Pym book, and I must say I enjoyed it. If you asked me what it was about, however, I‘d have to say it‘s not about much of anything. It is the story of Wilmet, a married woman in the 50‘s who has become bored with her husband and with her very undemanding life. We see her daily life unfold (I‘d be bored too) and her search for her own “glass of blessings”. Looking forward to more Pym treasures.

I read this in one sitting. Honestly didn‘t think I‘d enjoy a book about a custody battle and there were points where it was frustrating, but this one really drew me in. And I didn‘t see the ending coming, but it was a good one!

I started this book over and over for the last couple years. Finally read it this month for #authoramonth and finished it with mere hours left in October. (I really wish October was a longer month, it‘s such a good one!) I‘m reading The Haunting of Maddy Clare as well, but won‘t get it finished today. Oh and they are both good! I love the atmosphere in her books!

gossamerchild I really liked this one. It surprised me, as I don't really like “thrillers“. 1mo
Bklover @gossamerchild I was surprised I liked it too. I kept bailing on it in the past, but got right through it this time and loved it 😊 1mo

Well, this was interesting. I didn‘t really relate to the characters, but enjoyed the story. I know this was set in the 90‘s, but the way the women were treated seemed more 60‘s to me. Very gory, which I find oddly fascinating. Will probably read more of Grady Hendrix.

1. I had two- Heidi and Harriet the Spy

2. My mom would occasionally let me stay home from school. She‘d buy Pepsi and a big bag of Doritos and we would lie in her bed and read books all day and eat snacks. It was heavenly. ❤️

📖 Harvest Home by Thomas Tryon. I read it decades ago and it still comes to mind when I think of scary books.

📖 I am definitely in the creepy group. I tend to avoid the type where someone is pregnant with a baby that turns out to be demonic. I know that sounds oddly specific, but there are a lot of them out there!

📖 The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

1. I shampooed hair at a local salon I could walk to. I was 13. Because of that job I am great at washing hair. 😉😊

2. Nope and nope.

3. I think so, although I had it easier than some. I worked at a school when my kids were growing up, so my hours and days off matched my kids.

Mehso-so

I really hate when I‘m the exception. Everyone seems to love this book. I have enjoyed other Lapena books, but this one didn‘t do it for me. I can‘t even go into why I didn‘t love it because of spoilers. I didn‘t pan it because I did want to finish it, and I will continue to read her books, but I just didn‘t find this believable.

Bklover Note: Sometimes not believable is ok, even fun. In this instance it just seemed unbelievable. 2mo

🍽️Dinner!

🍽️Enough Already by Valerie Bertinelli. I love her- we are about the same age. Her book and her cooking were fascinating and I loved the stories behind her food.

This was fun! I don‘t read a lot of YA so I don‘t know if it is unique or not, but it was to me! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Have any of you seen this? It‘s called Literature Clock. It not an app- it‘s a link. Every time you open it it presents a quote from a book that mentions the exact time it is right then. It changes every minute. I‘m not exactly sure what the purpose is but it‘s kind of interesting. Link below

mrp27 Neat! 3mo
Itchyfeetreader What a fun thing! 3mo
TheBookgeekFrau Cool! 3mo

mariaku21 This could be fun. Depending on the quote maybe I might pick up a new read 😁 3mo
rwmg I am going to be checking the time all day 😂 3mo
Bklover @mrp27 @Itchyfeetreader @TheBookgeekFrau @mariaku21 @rwmg It‘s a bit addictive. I finally created a shortcut on my home screen to make it easier. There have been some interesting ones. Don‘t you wonder who thought this up and then created it?!?! 3mo
rwmg If I knew how, I would make it my screensaver
3mo
TheBookgeekFrau @Bklover I absolutely wondered that! My thoughts are running along the line of lit or computer science students. It's got the feel of some kind of student project 🧐🤔 3mo
Sparklemn This is cool. I sent it to all my reader friends. 🙂 2mo
Bklover @Sparklemn Oh, I‘m glad! It‘s kind of fun! 2mo
Bklover @rwmg If I knew how, I‘d help you do it! 2mo

🍏I love reading scary books in the fall. I also love making chili, bonfires in the back yard, handing out candy on Halloween-we have LOT of trick-or-treaters.
🍎Joyful. This morning it is 64 degrees outside and I‘m on my screened in porch loving it
🍏 A Passage to India, GOT, Bazaar of Bad Dreams, and starting another today. Not sure which yet.

My ThriftBooks order just came in! Now I can start this for #LosersClub. I have a whole bookcase dedicated to SK so I can‘t imagine why I didn‘t have this one. 🤷‍♀️

BarkingMadRead Woohoo!! I still have a handful that I need to get, I‘m always amazed when I don‘t have one of them 🤣 3mo
Hooked_on_books He has SO many books, it would be easy to miss one! 3mo
Bklover @BarkingMadRead @Hooked_on_books It was kind of funny. I sat there staring at my bookcase for the longest time, thinking it has to be there. I felt a little betrayed by my bookcase!!😅 3mo
BarkingMadRead @Bklover that has happened to me before! 3mo

Ended up loving this one! At about the halfway point I thought it was getting long, but I really ended up enjoying it. I have to love a book where something wonderful comes out of menopause!

wanderinglynn Wouldn‘t it be lovely to develop powers when/after going through menopause? I‘m in perimenopause & I‘d love the ability to turn some people into frogs 😉😆 3mo
Bklover @wanderinglynn Oh, hell yes!! I‘m post menopausal and the fun never ends!! Still waiting for my magical powers!🫤 3mo

Here are my top 10 (minus1) books from this summer. Would‘ve shown you ten, but I didn‘t really have ten favorites. Best of the best was Hello Beautiful, followed by Tom Lake. I am definitely ready to hop into fall!
