The first big storm of this winter. Hunkered down with homemade chicken gnocchi soup and listening to a book set in my area 131 years ago. Thankful for all my comforts and modern day meteorologists.

Sarahandhella I had an relative die during this blizzard. Calvin Hurd in 1888. He was only 17. My grandfather was also named Calvin Hurd. 3w

I have been nonexistent on here for so long... But I finally bought books on Thriftbooks today. Thankful that I can read so many great books from my library so I know what I want to own. Hopefully I can control myself in the future!!

Zelma Great choices! Relish is phenomenal and Adulthood is fun. 4mo

I have been on a Lucy Knisley kick lately, but I am reading them all out of order. Finally feeling like myself again after having my gallbladder and gallstones removed last week. Marvel has been about this close the whole time. I definitely have a good reading partner/snuggle buddy.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this book at Goodwill today. Also picked up a couple sheets of adulting stickers at Dollar Tree.

I was listening to the tagged book when I went into my second bedroom (aka library) looking for my kitten who had become mysteriously quiet. And found Marvel snug as a bug behind my books. Love her even if she eventually knocks them out. ☺️

Kittens | Anna Pollard

So, my morning started off with my family running a garage sale on the hottest day of the year (so far)... and towards the end of it I saw a Facebook post about someone looking for a home for a kitten. So after 18 months without a pet, I picked up Marvel Sparkles this afternoon. She‘s not entirely sold on me yet, but I think she‘s pretty great!

I haven‘t made significant process in this book, but it isn‘t because I don‘t like it. So far it‘s probably the best book of 2019 for me. I read about 60 pages like breathing air, but then I have to take about two days in between. Maybe it‘s because the characters are so fleshed out that it feels like I am reading something very private? I am excited to see how it ends up, but I am not in a rush.

Thankful that my stabbing pains in the back and belly was easily treatable, but not without a visit to the ER this morning. Slept most of the afternoon away, but blessed to be outside reading this fine evening. Obviously I have seen this book touted everywhere, but I didn‘t read anything about it. Just picked it up from the library and started reading today. I am about 60 pages in, it hooks you fast!

Life is very busy | Christophe Malfliet

Spring brings with it a hell of a lot of distractions from reading. Planting, garage sales, celebrating graduations, and DIY projects in my case. Read about half the amount I usually read in a given month. But now things are settling down and I am ready!!

Sarahandhella I should have also added watching hummingbirds at my feeders and flowers. 8mo

“What do we say to the Lord of Death?”

“Not today.”

Snack break! I bought these a couple of weeks ago and hadn‘t opened them. These were the first 3 I pulled out. Since the show is winding down I thought I would revisit the actual books and get reacquainted since the lines are blurring in my memory of the differences. Have started the audiobook at night. Here‘s to whatever happens tonight on the show! 🥂 🍻

Sarahandhella That episode was the worst piece of writing I have ever witnessed. Redemption arc pissed away. 8mo

Sounds Like Titanic: A Memoir | Jessica Chiccehitto Hindman
post image

A tale of two books. Both finished in the last two days. The tagged book was just a whim at the library, I guess they both were... I am not a memoir fan, but Hindman‘s story of working for The Composer was very intriguing and before I knew it I had read the whole thing. Highly recommend! I can‘t say the same for Tremblay‘s Cabin. The premise was great and horrifying, but the execution was so-so. Plus the narrator was bad.

Bingo Love | Tee Franklin

Finally read Bingo Love. The cover intrigued me when I first saw it, and I checked it out once before but never got to reading it. It was a sweet love story. This was my first outside reading of the year! Yesterday I went a little nuts and got way too many flowers for mid-April. I guess I will have to enjoy carting the flowers in and out of my house for the next three weeks!

Last time I had this book in front of my window the snow was all gone and it was open and in the 60s. I just want to start planting and turn off my heat. Is that too much for a girl to ask of mid-April weather. Finished the book today, pretty short. Prefer the show, the humor and quirkiness of the characters is not present in the novel. That said I am on to “No Tomorrow”.

Sarahandhella that last time was five days ago. 😢 9mo

Absolutely gorgeous weather outside, but it is that awkward time of the year where it is 66 today. You want to get your patio set out, but then you are threatened with snow for some of the upcoming week. So I am stuck reading by an open window. Excited that season 2 is starting tonight, thought I would try the books since I enjoyed the show.

The Remember Balloons | Jessie Oliveros
post image

Grabbed some books for my preschool class at the library today. I can already tell that I can never read this to children without bawling. The story is about a little boy, James, and the balloons signify memories. His Grandpa‘s balloons start to drift away. James wants to catch them and bring them back, but he can‘t. Good book for anyone with a family member who is dealing with dementia.

I am soooo over this winter. Blizzard and a feel of -33 and working through it made me drink. And I never drink. At least I got to look through a book of yummy food! I always like watching Delish‘s videos on Facebook, so when I saw it at the library I didn‘t hesitate to grab it. Now if only someone else would cook for me 😁.

My sister read one of his books and said she liked it. I saw this audiobook was available so I said, “why not?” I am not sure if I can make it through, I don‘t particularly like Chuck Klosterman. Apparently from the small amounts of Goodreads reviews I have looked at, this is his worst book. I could be very descriptive of what I think of him, but it basically comes down that he seems like a real prick.

Got done with work early today so I went and explored Goodwill and picked up these two beauts. Makes me want to reread the tagged book again, but maybe this time I will listen to Lin Manuel Miranda as well. Also picked up the cute heart art.

Pretty happy with my reading progress in the first six days of the new year. Picked up the tagged book and audiobook at the library today. It‘s my preferred way of experiencing a book. Realized I hadn‘t put My GoodReads goal in after I took the picture. Going for 80 again.

Mehso-so

I have read a lot of reviews on Good Reads after finishing this book. I agree with most people that are concerned this is aimed at YA. There are a lot of triggers in this book. That said, I am an adult and I could handle all the icky parts. I think that the writing was beautiful, and the concept was interesting. Will I read it again or buy it? Probably not.

Sarahandhella Had no picture of the book, so I had to use my dragon puppet picture from two years ago 🤣 1y
