Light and fluffy with a crown-wearing frog? I‘m in.
I read this book last year and remember feeling annoyed that I didn‘t predict the ending. I‘m giving it a reread, this time on audio, to see how it feels now that I understand where it‘s going.
“All of them?”
I‘m stepping back into the world of Inspector Gamache and Three Pines.
I haven‘t read an Oprah pick in ages, but this multi generational saga seems to be just what I was in the mood for. His writing is beautiful and I don‘t want it to end.
I picked this one up thinking it was the story of her escape from North Korea, not realizing her earlier book tells that story.
My new favorite “inspirational” read. So cute.
Before Mazer invented himself as Mazer, he was Samson Mazer, and before he was Samson Mazer, he was Samson Masur- a change of two letters that transformed him from a nice, ostensibly Jewish boy to a Professional Builder of Worlds - and for most of his youth, he was Sam, S.A.M. on the hall of fame of his grandfather‘s Donkey Kong machine, but mainly Sam.
That‘s one long #firstlinefriday !
So close! I resisted the temptation to count a currently reading book as completed and will just try again in 2023.
Happy New Year!
@CBee Thank you so much for this awesome #jolabokaflodswap ! I was late opening it, but I‘ve still managed to eat half the candy. The book looks great, can‘t wait to get started. Happy holidays!
And thanks @MaleficentBookDragon for coordinating this swap.
@quietjenn Wow! Thanks so much for this awesome #hauntedhollowswap I‘m excited for all the books and don‘t know where to start. Love the bookmarks, candles and especially the string lights. I‘m going to hang them up for tomorrow. The pencils, case, keychain and everything is perfect. And the snacks, yum! Happy Halloween to you!
Thank you @MaleficentBookDragon for this wonderful #allhallowsreadswap package! It‘s perfect! Can‘t wait to try the tea and stuff myself full of candy corn. I‘ve had my eye on both books and they look perfect for this season.
And thanks so much for hosting this fun swap.
