I knew I would love this book and I did💛💛💛 Elvis is a wonderful character - bright, curious, wiser than her years. She made me think of Elsa in My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She‘s Sorry (which I also loved).

Getting started on this book this morning before work. The author comes highly recommended. I hope I love it and have a new-to-me author to follow📚
On a different note: my #catsoflitsy are all in hiding this morning. Our neighbors are getting a new roof today and the noise is just too much for them. I must say that I understand and I‘m glad that I have to work today😉

Not my biggest #bookhaul of all time from the library used book sale, but it‘s a book haul nonetheless! I couldn‘t resist Gnomes; my mom had this book and I always loved the illustrations. And I got a cute little book of Edward Gorey cat drawings. The softcover books were 50 cents each or 5 for $2.00, so that cookie cookbook that I didn‘t need was free! Who was I to say no🤗

The cats are fed. It is STILL snowing. 3 more inches expected on top of the, I don‘t know, 14” we got yesterday. What to do but start a new book📚 I‘m really looking forward to this one. Her other two were quite good. Much of this one takes place in Iran so I think I‘ll learn a little something along the way.

I got to leave work early today due to our little April blizzard here in Minnesota ❄️❄️❄️ I‘m not sure how much snow we have so far because it is coming down sideways, but we‘re supposed to get another 7”.
Anyway, that gave me a chance to finish up my current book. It was a good, quick and interesting read. And it was a nice change to read a true crime book that wasn‘t all blood and guts and murderers.

A nice collection of essays. The author is an Ojibwe woman and a professor of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. She writes of both her modern day life and that of her ancestors and how the changing seasons influence both internal and external lives. Another theme is the importance of shared history and family and tribal rituals. I enjoyed the introspective and reflective nature of the book.

#catsoflitsy Teddy, again😽

slhbooks continued comments: One thing I learned from this book is that Native American children were separated from their families and sent to Indian boarding schools. This was an attempt to destroy their native ways and language and to force assimilation. I intend to read more about this horrific practice that went on from the mid-1800s until as late as the 1970s. 2y

I‘ve been re-reading some childhood favorites. I got a copy from the library rather than crack open my old tattered and torn copy. Harriet was a little meaner in her notebook entries than I remembered, but I still love her. In 5th grade, my neighbor Carol and I kept notebooks just like Harriet. I don‘t think I would have wanted anyone to read what we wrote either! I remember writing something about Nancy P.‘s smelly socks😬🤭🤫

Wasn‘t so sure about this one at first, but once I got all the characters straight I really enjoyed it. Also, it jumps around in time from chapter to chapter which I always find a little disorienting, but I liked the way the story of the Keating and Cousins families is revealed. Very good story-telling.

Just finished this and I can't move so I might as well get this posted now. This is the second book in the Oslo police investigator Hanna Wilhelmsen series. It has bloody crime scenes, but no bodies and an unsolved rape case where the victim and her father independently seek justice. I would have liked a bit more about the motivations of the perpetrator, but I'm enjoying getting to know Hanna and her colleagues.

Loved this! Wonderful novel! Beautifully written. Set on the Suffolk coast right at the beginning of WW I. It's the story of village life and the unlikely friendship between Thomas Maggs, a village teenager, and summer visitor and architect/artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
The illustration on the book jacket is from Mackintosh's work. The frittilaria on the right are from my garden this past spring.

One of my resolutions (again) is to read the next book in any series that I've started. This is the second in the Walt Longmire series. I'm almost done watching Longmire on Netflix so I feel like I'm further along in the book series than I really am. Lots of good characters in these novels; I especially like Henry.

This was my last read of 2017 and I'm happy to say that I loved it❤️❤️❤️ Great characters, great story. I agree with all the blurbs on the book jacket: 'Captivating', 'Utterly spellbinding', and 'Guaranteed to enchant, enthrall, and enmagick'. It would be a good book to read with a child which I would do if I had kids, but I don't, so my cats will have to do. I hope Teddy and Nellie like it😉

I loved The Shadow of the Wind trilogy so I was excited to read more by this author. This book is the third book in another trilogy written for younger readers, but can be read as a standalone novel. There's a nice teen love story in here as well an eerie murder mystery. It's a great setting for unsettling events - scary woods surrounding a mansion owned by an old toymaker that makes bizarre mechanical toys that seem to come to life🤤🤤🤤

I really enjoy this series. I thought this was a bit slow to get going, but I was glad to catch up with Carl and Assad and Rose. Rose was in deep deep distress at the end of the previous book. Besides the crimes, this book focuses on all that has happened to Rose to bring her to where she is today. It was Rose's story that really drew me in to this book.

This one was slow to get started and you're probably about 1/3 into it before Detective Inspector Ann Lindell is even mentioned. AND the murder hasn't even happened yet. Most of the book is the set-up to the murder which was a bit unorthodox, but I enjoyed the different approach and story-telling.
And I love that I read this when the cover COMPLETELY coordinated with the leaves falling from my gorgeous maple tree🤓🤓🤓🍁🍁🍁

Catching up on posting some of my late summer/fall reads tonight. One of my #bookishresolutions this year was to read my first Agatha Christie and I did it!! I never knew her first sleuth was Hercule Poirot; I thought it was Miss Marple. Anyway, it was a good mystery, but I don't feel like polishing off the whole series. I'll probably read one of the Miss Marple mysteries though.

I bought this last fall as the leaves were falling from our maple. Fully intended to read it then but never did. I did read it in July as the Japanese beetles were munching away on our Siberian larch. I hoped the tree sensed I was trying to help as I picked off those damn beetles. Recently, I had to do some pruning of my trees and I felt bad about cutting off their 'arms'. I hoped they understood. I love my trees🌳🌳🌳I loved this book🤓🤓🤓
