Buechersuechtling There‘s some truth in this. On the one hand. On the other hand: If I put my head on the ground like an ostrich, am I not slowing down then? Simply by not moving or stopping to move? 😉 2w
WJCintron @Buechersuechtling Yes! I totally agree 💯!! My same line of thought. The quote works with what's happening in the book and with what the character said/meant. 👍 But I get what you're saying. 😃 2w

I finished reading this gem! I loved all the recipes! The meat ones I can easily adapt them to fish instead. Now I have new options and definitely need to do some changes. Coconut oil, and honey between other things. Loved that at the end there's a huge, kind of a grocery list of ingredients I need to get. It also has tips on every page for you to adapt them to your needs or to be able to successfully accomplish them. Can't wait to try them 5⭐

Reading this! It's kind of a sneak into the lives of many celebrities, what they are grateful for & some neat stories.
#litsyatoz #abecedarianTBR #RTA2020 #alphabetsoupchallenge #mandmchallenge #memoirsmysteries - I'm not sure if it can be counted as a memoir towards the challenge. It's a non fiction, with real stories from celebrities/ childhood/experiences & great advice. @BarbaraTheBibliophage @BookishMarginalia Does it count? Or 👎

BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘d count it—sounds like a group of mini-memoirs! ♥️📚👊🏻 1mo

WJCintron @Cinfhen if you like dystopian you should read it, it's great! Yes! √ Summer prompt: A book with a red/white/blue type on the cover. 4th of July Unsouled not only has a white type on the cover/also has blue, red and white color. All the colors of 4th of July!! 😉 It totally fits the prompt! 😃 On the guidelines it said you could read from any of the seasons at any given time. Summer, even though here in California it's still Winter. Am I right? 1mo
Cinfhen Yes!!!! Totally!!!!! Sorry I missed the correlation 😝 1mo

I'm reading this book as a part of #booked2020 #readharder 2020 challenges, but also for personal reasons. I suffer from severe fibromyalgia. A lot of people say a Paleo diet may help deal with the pain. I don't eat meat or poultry. Only fish. It's not easy for me to find new recipes to try. Wish me luck! I'm already crossing fingers! @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen #reading #paleo #recipes #readingchallenge #food #hope #new

Cinfhen Good luck, indeed 💚Hope this helps your condition. People who are committed to Paleo swear they feel so much better. 1mo
WJCintron Amen thanks so much!! 💚💚 1mo
4thhouseontheleft Good luck! Have you seen Nom Nom Paleo? I like some of their recipes, and they have quite a few plant based and seafood recipes in the website. 1mo

I think all children should read/listen to it. Even adults! It teaches in a simple way, with beautiful images & a magical story, how we should LOVE & ACCEPT one another. We ARE ALL beautiful: all skin tones/cultures/race/beliefs/age/body type/healthy/handicapped/wealthy or not... The world is aching/TOGETHER we can heal it!

NOT for everyone: sexual content/abuse themes/raw subjects
Overall a great book well written. Some poems are very erotic. Others way deep. Deal with relationships, not only with your partner but with yourself. If you grasp their meaning, they are inspiring. The ones dealing with assaults are more at the beginning while others more relatable & full of empowerment are at the end. If you are open-minded this book is for you.

Until I Break | Kara M Bietz
post image
Mehso-so

Well written book, however, my expectations were too high.The summary sells this as a novel about a school shooting, when it's not. It's about how Sam is bullied constantly & his relationship with Marnie. The point of action is very brief & disappointing. The ending was very unrealistic & rushed. I enjoyed seeing how being bullied can push someone psychologically to a horrible extent. Not boring. Recommend it to youngsters & victims of bullying.

I just started reading this one, because Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, is very slow paced and I need to give it a little break. As soon as I started reading it captured me. I NEVER read anything about school shootings, but I bought this one because it's not about the shooting. It's the story of two kids while in that situation. I think I'll enjoy it. I hope not to be disappointed. Wish me luck! 😄 How is your Saturday going? Happy readings!

My first time reading from this author and I loved it. I totally agree with SK!! He really knows how to write similes! You can feel every single sentence. I couldn't stop reading. Full of suspense and intrigue. I will definitely read whatever he writes. Amazing debut novel. Really recommend it! Looking forward to watching the movie, and praying they don't butcher the book!

I just finished reading book one of the series. I really liked the story and the way the author develops the characters. There was from time to time an element of surprise, which keeps you reading. Not boring at all. I'm still heartbroken about what happens on page 350. I think it was too early in the series. I was about to bail, but I'm glad I kept reading till the end. Will definitely read the next books in the series.

Buechersuechtling Oh, I love this. If there weren‘t so many books so little time, I‘d be considering to re-read. I remember to have thought that volume 1 is especially original. 😄 1mo
WJCintron @Buechersuechtling 😄 really good! I need to read the rest of the series! They are also re shooting some scenes for the movie. I think the actor that will portray Todd is too old. I hope they don't butcher the book!!! 1mo

1st time reading this author. The pace of it at 1st is pretty slow. It took me a while to get into it. I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed it. I think all who deal with this issue, & their families should read it. I don't think it's a trigger. Not graphic at all. It's about how she feels & how she copes. How the author develops the protagonist, portrays to perfection the pace & mood of the majority who endure such a practice. It deserves a read!

I really loved this novel. It's not the usual story of mermaids, but the story of a merman. Loved the way the author describes. You can feel every little detail.

the pain has a meaning, when we are born we are a rough block of wood. The pain we go through this life, is the hand of God carving us, shaping us. The carving feels bad, but it's forming us into a cup that can hold more as each stroke of pain carves another rough piece of us away. Then we have more space to hold things. Eventually, the walls of the cup get thinner until they disappear and you spill into the space beyond the cup. You become life.

1st time reading this author & I really loved her writing style & how she developed all the characters. Her story captured me from the beginning & I liked the end. It was a realistic turn, even though I was a little heartbroken. I'll definitely read the sequel. The only concern I have is that some readers may stop reading when they reach the middle because the pace slows down quite a bit. But other than that I truly recommend it!
