Gentleman in Moscow | Amor Towles

Gentleman in Moscow is one my favorite books, from the last few years. I posted a few things on IG regarding the book, today the Metropol Hotel (setting of story) liked my posts but more importantly they are offering
The Gentleman in Moscow immersion tour.
I now have a new dream trip.

Half way this book and I am obsessed. So good. I am also tea drinker, so I was excited to see the author put together tea sampler to accompany the book.
Weekend plans, sip pu-erh tea and finish this incredible fascinating read.

Growing up I was huge fan of the Cathy comic strip.
Creator Cathy Guisewite just released a book of essays, it is insightful, relatable and funny.
It first chapter I laughed out loud 5 times.
Highly recommend

You should read this! Read this last year, it is now the book I tell they everyone they must read.
I also love Rules of Civility. Can't wait for Amor Towles next great work.

Now, next time I suffer from a migraine,
I finally have the perfect description when someone asks I feel.
"..The best description of what a migraine feels like..
"..like urchin spines driven into my eyes. This is how Zesu must have felt before Athena leapt from his skull, I thought. I crawled to my my room and lay in the shuttered dark, dreaming of how sweet it would be to cut through my neck and make it end

As a 50 year old woman, who is childfree by choice this makes me 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡.
However, no matter if religious or non-religious so many people believe it is every woman's ambition is to have children.

I was surprised I liked this book. Not usually my kind of story but I liked Margaret, her emotional journey adjusting to new circumstances of her life.

Just finished this book. Rarely do I like something where I despise the main character,
But this was a compelling read

My Year of Rest and Relaxation story of an unnamed narrator who after loss of both her parents, having a Wall Street boyfriend treats her badly and her sadomasochistic relationship with her best friend, Reva. She finds an unethical psychiatrist willing to supply her with drugs decides to attempt sleeping for a
year.

Today dropped my husband off at an appointment in area of our city that we normally don't go.
Found a locally owned bookstore and decided explore.
Forgot to unmute my phone, got distracted by all the books, forgot about husband by time remembered him had 6 texts and 5 calls 40 minutes to come get him.
Took a chance based on "for lovers of" and ??? it was a book on my TBR list.
So I had a great outing.. Hubs is annoyed but he'll recover.

1/2 way through and has me disliking JELL-O even more then I did before. Alwsys found Jell-O creepily disturbing now I know why?
Jell-O's early misogynistic racist ads are cringy. 🤦‍♀️
