Fifty Words for Snow | Nancy Campbell
post image
Pickpick

2-4-23 || I‘ve tried to lean into the season this year by reading this slowly over the past couple of months. It‘s divided into 50 short chapters and also features 50 of Bentley‘s famous snowflake photographs. There are sections on everything from Estonia‘s ice roads to the Icelandic word for “snowflakes big as a dog‘s paw“ to the Kilimanjaro glaciers. A perfect read for this winter season. ❄️

📖 2-3-23 || I have mixed feelings about this one… I totally can see why this is so popular. Loved, absolutely loved, the writing which pulled me in so much that I cried. However, I didn‘t love some of the characters, the ending, or most of the parts about gaming. Overall it‘s a pick for me and I will most certainly buy her next book.

Ruthiella I found it a mixed bad too. Definitely preferred the first half over the second. 1d
Kristin_Reads @Ruthiella Me too! For the first third of the book I thought for sure it was going to be one of my all-time favorite books. But it turned out not to be. 1d

🎧 1-27-23 || I love Lucy Worsley‘s biographies, and this is no exception! She handles Christie‘s disappearance with sensitivity and is very thorough in her research. I especially liked listening to this one at the same time as I read one of the Miss Marple mysteries. 🔍

📖 1-27-23 || My second Christie and just my first Miss Marple. I was a little disappointed that we didn‘t see more of Miss Marple herself in this one. But it was still fun to guess and to see how it would all come together in the end.**This was the January pick for the Comfort Book Club of my favorite bookish YouTuber, Miranda Mills: https://youtu.be/

🎧 1-22-23 || This was my read for #AuthorAMonth and I really liked it. I think it would be a good companion piece or alternate to Little House on the Prairie. Sensitive readers should be aware that It does have some traumatic events.
I‘ve also read The Sentence by Erdrich and really like her writing.

Demon Copperhead: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver

📖 1-9-23 || What a masterpiece. This is just stunning and I won‘t forget it. It‘s a retelling of Dicken‘s David Copperfield but you don‘t have to know that story to love this one. This is compelling and unputdownable. All the stars. Also, this podcast episode goes into the mechanics of how Kingsolver structured and wrote the novel and I find it fascinating:

📚 12-31-22 || Final book of 2022 🎉 I ended up really liking this one, though the first quarter seemed to drag. The last half flew by and this author is now an auto-buy for me. A group of women in London become friends while mending wedding dresses to loan to brides during WWII. “An uplifting read that‘s as soothing as a warm cup of Earl Grey on a gloomy morning” (Booklist) 😊🫖

Poems to Night | Rainer Maria Rilke

📖12-19-22 || One of my 2022 reading goals was to expand my poetry horizons by reading a book of poetry each month. I missed two months this year so I‘m quickly catching up. I figured this is an appropriate choice as we approach the winter solstice. I can‘t say I “get” all of these but I do like Rilke and this is a very concise volume.

Carnegie's Maid: A Novel | Marie Benedict
post image
Pickpick

📖 12-19-22 || This is a soft pick because though I enjoy Benedict‘s writing this one dragged a little. I was disappointed to realize that the MC is completely fictional. It‘s apparent that Benedict did thoroughly research Carnegie and his transition from industrialist to philanthropist, as well as the immigrant experience of the Irish in the later 1800s. I enjoyed The Personal Librarian and still plan to read other books by Benedict.

Crazeedi I agree this one was not as good as her others, but I still like her as an author. Read most of them 2mo

📖 11-30-22 || I bought this #NunLit book and just couldn‘t wait until next year to buddy read it for #NunLitQuarterly🤭 This is a witty and irreverent account of a year spent visiting and living in convents in order to discern her true calling. I wasn‘t really expecting the past trauma details, but overall I found this a very enjoyable read. I will save more of my thoughts for reviewing it with the group next year!

📖 11-19-22 || This is an interesting story set on Cyprus with a fig tree as narrator. I would‘ve preferred the story be told in a more linear approach, rather than skipping around different times and perspectives. I wanted to know more about Yusuf and Yiorgis. I do feel like I learned a bit about the history of Cyprus and the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, though…
