Bel Canto | Ann Patchett

My penguin mug is filled with hot chocolate, my puppy is by my side and we are snuggled up in the comfy recliner ready to finish the last few chapters of my current read. I‘ve enjoyed the story but it‘s been a bit of a slow read for me. Any thoughts about this one?

raelaschoenherr I‘ve been meaning to read this but have been afraid of the pace. 5y
Owlizabeth I love this book, but it‘s a quiet story. 5y
DreesReads I loved this, but I read it when it was new. 5y

azulaco I wish my kids would snuggle up with me and let me read. Alas, I don't get to read until everyone's in bed. 6y

Afternoon reading on the comfy couch while the little one naps 😊 Completely captivated by this current read!

mcctrish One of my all time favourites 6y
Mc_cart_ny Love! Love! Love! 6y
Laura317 I listened to the audio. I enjoyed it quite a bit. 6y
Megabooks My favorite book! 6y
RebL I had to read it after hearing book podcasters repeatedly ask guests, "What's your Station Eleven book?" So... do you have one? A book that isn't your desert island or one greatest, but a Station Eleven book? 6y

The Likeness: A Novel | Tana French
post image

"....If you're perfectly happy with what you've got - specially if what you've got isn't even all that spectacular - then you're dangerous. You're breaking all rules, you're undermining the sacred economy, you're challenging every assumption that society's built on." Some true and thought-provoking words from my current read. Completely captivated by my second Tana French book! #irishauthors

Notafraidofwords Hmmmm. This is interesting. Is she talking about like careers? 6y
EmiDanielle @Notafraidofwords Yes she is talking about careers. One of the character's father's is very upset that his son won't accept the job he has offered to him and is going to college as an English major instead. 6y
Notafraidofwords @EmiDanielle I totally agree. I'm in an assistant position. I graduated from college 3 years ago and people still ask me of my plans. What do you mean? 6y
Kammbia1 Wow....that is an interesting section of narrative 6y
Potterhead Been meaning to read this!! 6y

Jane Eyre | Charlotte Bront
post image

One of my favorite parts about babysitting is that when the little one is asleep, I get paid by the hour to curl up on the couch and read! Spending some quality time with Jane Eyre during this afternoon's nap time. I hated it when I was forced to read it during high school and by read, I mean skim until I found the answers to the homework questions 😂 Really enjoying it this time around!

Mcoun This is one of my all-time favorites! 6y

A little late Friday night reading out on the back deck. This weather is so strange for February but I am so enjoying it tonight as I turn the pages faster and faster through my first Tana French book 😊

vivastory I was thinking about making this my first Tana French book 6y

For the past few months I have been constantly complaining to my best friend about how I need more space for books. My dear friend, instead of forcing me to admit the fact that I have a book buying problem and need to quit, took it upon herself to build me this beautiful new bookshelf. I'm so thankful to have such a sweet and thoughtful best friend who truly knows how to speak my love language(; #friendshipgoals #thatsmybestfriend

"Women fall differently, that's all. We die by the stopping of our hearts, they by the insistence of theirs." Truer words have never been spoken. Really enjoying this book and eager to see how it wraps up!

The Forgotten Garden | Kate Morton
post image

"Ever since Eliza had discovered the book of fairy tales in Mrs. Swindell's rag and bottle shop, had disappeared inside its faded pages, she'd understood the power of stories. Their magical ability to refill the wounded part of people."

"Memory is a cruel mistress with whom we all must learn to dance."
Beautiful quotes throughout and while the ending seemed a little drawn out, the story itself was enchanting.

SaraFair Gonna start this next! 6y
Mc_cart_ny This is a good one! 6y

A quick, engaging read told from the POV of an autistic 15 year old boy named Christopher. Made me rethink the way I view the world around me and realize the different ways that people can process the exact same information.

kim.guernsey I really enjoyed this book! The play does it justice. 6y
EmiDanielle @AReaderWhoMoms I would love to see the play some day! 6y
AnythingCanBe This is on my TBR list. I have tickets to see the play in a few months. Aside from always wanting the book first, I need to decide if it's age-appropriate for my kid. 6y
Tldeandrea Loved this book. Hard to put down! 6y

"'Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm. Let me be hungry....have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or well dressed. Let me be sincere - be deceitful. Let me be truthful; let me be a liar. Let me be honorable and let me sin. Only let me be something every blessed minute. And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost.'" A very moving coming-of-age story. Highly recommend!

ErinC I loved this book as a kid. Planning on rereading later this year! 6y
Pinkmeghan I adore this book!! 😍 6y
EmiDanielle @ErinC I would say this is definitely worth a reread! Hope you enjoy it just as much if not more the next time around! 6y

Hollie My favorite book of all time! 6y
rubyslippersreads I don't know how many times I've read this book. ❤❤❤ 6y
Cortg I read it in late middle school / early high school and loved it! Listened to the audio last summer and still enjoyed it. My daughter read it for her summer choice, didn't connect with it like I was hoping. 6y
Bookdragon69 I had this in my tbr list for a long time. Finally last summer I read it, well I tried. I did not like it. I even read 120 pages before giving up. That's only the second book I have ever put down. I'm glad so many others like it though. 6y
[DELETED] 3341294504 I've read this once a year for the last 20 years. My favorite. ❤️ 6y

Finished this book in tears. A heartbreakingly beautiful, absolutely captivating story. Such a vivid portrayal of the ability of people to persevere and continue to hope, even in the midst of inexpressible pain and suffering.

ReadingRover One of my all time favorites. The audiobook is amazing!!! 6y
Bookdragon69 I'm not usually an emotional person but this book had me in tears at the end. Then I recommended it to my sister and she calls me crying after reading the book. 😜 6y
RebL Hannah so slowly twists the thumb screws of indignity in this one that I couldn't ignore my own anxiety. This pressure creep reflects a pattern of atrocity that the human experience may replay. 6y
tpixie @Bookdragon69 me too!! Crying NOW at WORK!! 6y

Lonesome Dove: A Novel | Larry McMurtry

Never before has 945 pages felt like too short of a story. Powerful, emotional and gripping. Couldn't put it down. I am not quite ready to leave these characters behind. Might just be my new favorite book of all time.

Kalalalatja I love it when that happens! 6y
Minervasbutler Been meaning to investigate this one for ages. Thanks! 6y
