⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Domenica is a woman who knows her own mind despite social and religious pressures to conform - a trait she passes along to her daughter, Matilda. As Matilda‘s life comes to an end, the story of the Cabrelli family is shared with the younger generation, helping them understand how they came to be, who they are, and who they might become.

@Gissy Thank you for my #BeltaneBox. I was especially touched by your individual notes about why you chose the gifts that you did. As a full moon Aries, I love the moon theme. I also love all the bonus books you included. I have none of them, and am so excited to add them to my summer reads. 🙏 P.S. I forgot to include the candle in the pic. It smells summery and divine.

Gissy I‘m glad you like it. I included a gift receipt in case you want to choose another jewelry piece if you don‘t like that one. I thought the mug was perfect since you born during a full moon day☺️
Happy reading!

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Prior to reading this book, I was not keen on the idea of taking a cruise ever in my lifetime, and this book did not help to change my mind. If you enjoy fast-paced thrillers with atmospheric elements, you‘ll find this book entertaining. Don‘t expect this book to be award winning. Accept it for what it is - an entertaining read.

🎧 📚: I took my time with this 📖 bc it broke my ❤️ open. The dark side of history should feel painful bc it reminds us of what humans are capable of doing to one another while providing us an opportunity to practice empathy & recommit to a more socially just future. So, fellow reader, take your time. Do not be afraid to let it break your heart open, but remember to keep the hope. Full review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/4475455783

Today was a difficult day. My students (I teach at the college-level. I say that bc I *feel* for those of you teaching in K-12) are struggling. On days like today, I‘m grateful for the turn in weather in Wisconsin (fleeting - it could snow tomorrow!), so I can apply a balm to the soul with a cheese board, a cocktail, a book, and a fire. May you all find a moment of peace this week.

This book is about the resilience of beings, the power of stories, and how relationships with humans and animals impact our journey. If you enjoy historical fiction, animals, and are looking for a quirky escape, you‘ll likely find enjoyment in this book. Overall, it is a cute and charming tale. I appreciated that it provided a look into a historical moment that was previously unknown. Full review: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/56449476

Yesterday, I heard through social media that I could get a free tote if I picked up the latest issue of Oh Reader. So, guess who made a special trip to the local B & N? This gal! I‘m present without shame for all the reading related marketing ploys. I just love the green color of the tote and the cover of the mag. 💃😍🌺 📚

TLuvs I got this tote and magazine too! I love that the tote was FREE, don't get me wrong, but this magazine! Has NO ads, great subscription (only publish 4 a year) since it is for the READERS out there and it is reasonably priced (8.99)! Great deal all around! 2mo

I am 175 pages in, and I‘m bailing. This book helped me admit that I have very little patience for female characters who rely so heavily on an avoidant conflict strategy that they are unable to set reasonable boundaries with other adults. Perhaps the ending would make all the lead up interesting, but my life is too precious to be continuously irritated. 🤣🤷‍♀️ This book might be another reader‘s cup of tea but is a no-go for me.

Aims42 I appreciate your honest review 👍 Life‘s too short (and the TBR pile is too large) for reading books that don‘t grab you 😊 Hope your next read is a great one!! 2mo

The writing is fast-paced, atmospheric, character driven, and kept me guessing. The story is told from alternating POVs, which I like, but I know can be an annoying writing style for some readers.

The Maidens: A Novel | Alex Michaelides

Mehso-so

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ This was my Feb 🎧 📖. I wanted to love this 📖; it has a dark academia aesthetic, focuses on Greek mythology, and includes a secret society. My main gripe is that there are too many loose ends for my preference. I was left with more questions than answers, which is not where I want to be after reading a thriller. I found myself saying, “wait…what…but how does that make sense” more often than I prefer. Full review linked in comments.
