Enjoyed this more than the last couple of letters - I loved Kinsey undercover! The titular homicide wasn‘t very prominent though. H is for Hostage may have been a better title?
Maybe if Brock Turner had smiled more, one of the three women who turned Brock down before Chanel would have wanted to kiss him. What did he expect, wearing that outfit? He should have known no one would want to sleep with him. And really, if you don‘t want to rape someone, don‘t get drunk. It‘s that simple.
Chanel Miller, I see you. Thank you for your strength and for the light you are shining.
Finished during #litsypartyofone & #24b4monday
Another week of goals met in #BFCr4. This challenge is really helping me make getting out to yoga a habit and I‘m loving my Friday lunchtime aerial yoga.
I‘m really looking forward to diving into this - I‘ve heard it‘s a hard read but this young woman is so inspiring. Starting it over breakfast will a chocolate croissant from my Snack Crate and some coffee.

Another book done in my #24b4monday #litsypartyofone in honour of #mrbook1inamillion!
Groff‘s writing was eloquent and compelling. I preferred the plot of the second half but the structure of the first - jumping around in time confuses me sometimes and there were a few moments where I wasn‘t sure what was happening. But, I think the different structures also told an interesting stories about the characters, so I wouldn‘t change a thing.
This is the first print book I‘ve ever read completely on my phone!
I enjoyed this more than F is for Fugitive - it was super-fast paced from the get-go and didn‘t let up. This was my second book finished for the #litsypartyofone and the #24b4monday in celebration of #mrbook1inamillion. I‘m at 8 1/2 hours already!
Maybe the greatest three sentences in the history of literature? I‘m dying laughing. 😂😂😂
This had a slow start... it felt like it went about 20km/h and then all of a sudden went to up 100km/h in an instant and then it ended. And I found it hard to keep a lot of the characters straight.
First book finished in my #litsypartyofone and #24b4monday (2.5 hours under my belt!) to celebrate #mrbook1inamillion
While everyone had bits they didn‘t love about this (little character development, holes in the plot, etc), I was the sole panner at #GirlyBookClub. Can‘t help it a I just don‘t like a ghost story.
Happy Halloween from Frankenpug!
(Yeah, yeah - I know Frankenstein is the doctor, not the monster, but Dr Frankenpug‘s Monster doesn‘t work for the pun!)
I can‘t be sure because I still have no idea what happened in this book but I *think* there‘s a supernatural element to it 😉
This made for okay plane reading but I don‘t think it‘s really worth picking up, it didn‘t work for me. The cast of characters was too complicated, for one. I kept having to flip back and forth to figure out who people were early on and still never really managed to keep Lauren and Jen straight. But what really irked me was how the book ended for Stephanie. It felt like a bad stereotype.
We‘re travelling right now so my #BFCr4 goals have gone out the window - no yoga, no books finished but I did reach my weekly target for my Vitality rewards
Harry Potter is definitely one of my favourite fall reads - something about this series is perfect for fall.
In what has been one of the absolute highlights of all my travels, earlier this week, we visited the Plantin-Moretus Museum, where we saw the original type case that would eventually become Times New Roman, the world‘s oldest preserved printing press, the first atlas and a 36-line Gutenberg bible. It was absolutely incredible and something this book-lover will never forget.
This was such a creative way of teaching the basics of philosophy. I really enjoyed Sophie‘s story and how it evolved over the course of the book. Great read for someone who would like a fun and creative way to dip their toe into philosophy.
Week one of #BFCr4 in the books. I hit my Vitality rewards on Thursday (and got an Indigo gift card!!), made it to Yoga on Friday, finished my second book this morning! Yay!
The changing colours of the leaves make everything so beautiful
I‘ll never forget this book takes place in autumn - it takes place around Easter but in Australia where the seasons are flipped from ours in North America. And someone complained on Goodreads about this “error” asking (with several typos) if no one edits books anymore 😶
It‘s here! But not nearly as thick as I thought it would be!
