1. Regal, from Robin Hobbs Farseer books. Honestly hate him with a passion.

2. I have never cried as hard as I did at the death of a character in the tagged book. I don't want to spoiler it for anyone though. But it's stayed with me.

3. I used to live there so let's go for Terry Deary from Sunderland!

The Lost Spells | Robert Macfarlane
post image
Pickpick

The Lost Spells (which is a follow up to The Lost Words) is a beautiful and mesmerising book about nature. Filled with stunning artwork by Jackie Morris and tongue twistingly good poems by Robert Macfarlane, I recommend this book to anyone looking to escape for a short while into the undergrowth and tree tops of our natural world.

charl08 Sold! 2y
laurieluna @charl08 it's beautiful, truly. I could spend hours looking at all the artwork, and it is packed with it. It arrived yesterday, actual publication day is today. I read all the poems before I went to bed last night and again today. I recommend The Lost Words too, and pretty much anything by Robert MacFarlane. He's one of my go to authors for escapism and word play. 2y
charl08 I love MacFarlane but haven't splurged on The Lost Words yet. Maybe Xmas! 2y

Current read. Only finished 2 other books so far this year, Goodnight Mister Tom, and another Lucinda Riley called The Butterfly Room. Started this yesterday and already 100 pages in. I think Lucinda is my author of choice at the moment!

Velvetfur Oohh I've got this on my Kindle app, but the cover of yours is more gorgeous than mine, haha! Is it good so far? 😊 2y
laurieluna @Velvetfur yes! Very good. I like how there's always a mystery running through her books and she's already set this one up. Characters are fab, setting is magical. Just the escapism needed right now tbh! Already planning on getting my hands on the rest in the series. X 2y
Velvetfur @laurenbescoby I'd never even heard of her, or the series, until I got this ebook, so I'm glad to hear it's so good - thank you 😁 2y
Crazeedi Oh this series is awesome!!!! I'm up to The Sun Sister, it's sitting here waiting for me. I loved every one 2y

Various crafts that have occupied my time recently. Gotten right back in to cross stitch, and it's helping me pass the hours in lockdown. I have the tagged book of patterns, it's a great starter book!

Moray_Reads I've just taken up cross stitch. It's hard to concentrate on reading but stitching and listening to audiobooks are helping to keep me occupied 2y
laurieluna @Moray_Reads I'm currently watching Gilmore girls as I stitch, I've never watched it before. It's great to have on in the background and I'm enjoying it loads! I've stitch since I was 10 but put it down for a few years when the boys happened and just got back to it. Made quite a few gifts this year! X 2y

Mini #bookhaul after a wonderful day out in Sunderland for pride today. The 4 year old is getting interested in recycling and activism so picked up A planet full of plastic for him, a simple book introducing the concept of 'reduce, reuse, recycle' to kids. I have an ever growing Lucinda Riley TBR because I loved The Love Letter, so picked The Butterfly Room up. Robin Hobb has a short story in the anthology, and a Peppa Pig book for the youngest!🤗

Another casualty of my youngest. 😭 that's signed editions that have had water spilled on them, a copy of mice and men for which I can't get the cover of anymore and it was my favourite one, crumpled up dust covers, pages with sticky fingers all over and now a ripped first edition of Eragon.

This book was equal parts engaging and infuriating. A perfect example of people unable to communicate their needs and wants when faced with the terrifying prospect of unconditional love for someone, and in turn being afraid it won't be reciprocated. Thank you @Caroline2 for this tremendous read!

Caroline2 I know what you mean! I loved and hated the main characters! 😆 3y

The accompanying book to Amanda Palmers latest album. I became a patreon member to get the hardback of this. Stayed because she's an amazing woman and I should have joined sooner. Been reading this over the past couple of days and it's refreshing how open she is about what she's gone through. It's also tremendously sad. We go through so much as humans, yet we still seem at war with each other. Remember: 'It's just a ride'.

Makes me wish I had my own private room to roar in. A great collection of very relatable short stories, each centred around a different woman. I felt it had a good level of representation, and pushed at the stereotypes we and society set for us.

TheHungryBookworms This is on my wish list. I was planning on buying it but need it to know what others thought about it before I did. 3y
laurieluna @TheHungryBookworms well I really enjoyed it. Some of the stories read like parables, and she avoids naming any of the main female characters which is a perfect touch. Makes them all the more relatable when they don't have a name I think. 3y
