I‘m excited to dive into this but sad knowing this is the only book we‘ll get from her. Unsolved cases are always the most fascinating to me.

Gracie Cat never lets me read.

drokka What would happen if you changed one of the characters to Gracie. Would she appreciate your need I wonder? 😂 Pets are the best. 2y

I got to listen to George Saunders talk about his writing process and give advice on writing last night. He is a very funny and lovely man.

Crazy Rich Asians | Kevin Kwan
post image

“...and sometimes if I'm on the bus and I pull out a biography and I think to myself, 'Well, I don't really feel like reading about a person's life right now' then I'll switch to the novel, and then sometimes if I'm not into the novel, I'll switch back.”

I channel my inner Rory Gilmore whenever I try to decide what books to bring to read during my lunch break at work.

Caroline2 Crazy rich Asians is great fun! 👍🏻 2y

I walked into Barnes & Noble to kill time before a movie tonight and I ended up killing my bank account instead. I also walked out with a copy of Crazy Rich Asians, there just wasn‘t room for it in the picture!

It‘s been a long time since I openly sobbed while reading a book. It was hard to read at times, because I related so much to the main character. John Green so accurately describes what it‘s like to be consumed with your thoughts and the feeling of having no control over those thoughts. This was probably one of the most realistic depictions of OCD and anxiety I‘ve encountered. I‘m hit or miss with his writing, but this one will stick with me.

I have built-in book shelves in my house but I'm still running out of room so I was forced to buy this $20 piece from Target to fit more. And to hold my niece's artwork, which desperately needed showcasing! 😍

There are a few little free libraries in and around my neighborhood but this one at the Carlisle YWCA is my favorite.

The Hopefuls: A novel | Jennifer Close
post image

This book is the literary equivalent of a mimosa. It's bubbly and light and I can't get enough of it. It's so compulsively readable but not nearly as heavy as the past few books I've read. It's basically the perfect distraction.

Morning coffee and muuurderrr. Despite being a longtime true crime aficionado, I have never read any of Ann Rule's work. So I'm starting with the big one.

"That's why we're uncomfortable with crying: because it's literally having your feelings leak out of you."
Nora McInerny's quote about crying is one of my absolute favorites. I can't wait to read this. (I've also always said if I write a memoir, it would be called "Laughing While Crying" so this title speaks to me!)

The Hate U Give | Angie Thomas
post image

I've sped through about 200 pages of this today and I want to keep going. But it's also so captivating and well-written that I want to savor it. I can't believe this is Angie Thomas's first novel. The writing seems so effortless, like she's been crafting these kinds of stories for decades.

White Teeth | Zadie Smith

Cold Sunday mornings are made for cozy blankets, coffee, and reading.

I had a bit of a hard time getting into this book so I put it aside for a bit. I picked it back up this week and I'm really enjoying it now; I'm glad I didn't give it up.

This was one of the most unique books I've encountered. The writing style is unlike anything I've ever read before. It sucked me in from the very first page. It is a beautiful musing on death and grief. It takes historical fiction to a whole new level. Even Gracie cat couldn't keep her paws off of it!

I have become obsessed with the My Favorite Murder podcast in the last few weeks so my purchases today were inspired by that. It's a must listen for any true crime junkie.
