📕The accident opening this story is “what the hell” on its own - you’ll say “ she was doing what?!” From there , it’s all madhouse with a lot of satire and comedy
-
📗All the characters introduced will ale you gonlike “let’s see how you are going to be relevant to this story”, then “well... okay! You fit there perfectly. 😒, author!”

📘All Yancy wanted was getting his badge back, but probably he didn’t have this Miami Vice style adventure in his mind

Morning! Happy Hump Day booklovers, what are you up to? This shelf is my absolute fave atm as it is just so colourful-sorting out all my books for autumn/winter made me realise how many black/white/grey colour combos my spines are.
Could be becaue these are mostly y.a titles-HUGE fan of y.a fiction, it's smart, relatable and I so wish it had been around when I was a teen!
What's your favourite shelf? Do you like reading y.a fiction? Have you ever been looked down on for this? #tag me in your #shelfies , let's get inspired!

I enjoyed this audiobook so very much. I began it not knowing much about Gabourey Sidibe...I had seen a few episodes of Difficult People and that one episode of Empire while I was waiting in the E.R. However, what I did know was that some people I like a whole lot like her a whole lot, and that was reason enough to listen.

Part of what made listening such a rewarding experience was that Sidibe narrates the book herself. As I've been listening to more audiobooks, I've realized just how crucial the narrator is to one's enjoyment of the book. Now I see how much of a given this is, I appreciate audiobook narrators much more. The wrong narrator can completely ruin the listening experience. Likewise, I understand how authors may be inclined to narrate their own books, but sometimes it is necessary for a narrator to bring distance, an engaging manner, and a fresh perspective to the reading. This is not the case with Gabourey Sidibe. Listening to her narrate the events of her life, I often felt like I was having a conversation with her. She is able to go from hilarious to deadly serious in an instant: in short, she is an excellent actress.

I so identified with Sidibe's struggles with her weight, mental health, and self-esteem. Sidibe describes how I feel most of the time- like I want to cut all the fat off my body and start afresh. I would like to think reading this book has helped me begin to grasp the hurdles Sidibe has faced in being a fat, black woman. I look forward to watching her work on the screen.

For anyone curious this is Mulligan, the bookish cat in question. He wasn’t asked to pose next to this book I just think that might be his answer to day two of @bookriot fall readathon #bookishcat #riotgrams

I tried to enlist my cat @spicy_purrito_mulligan for this TBR photo but he was too busy licking himself. This is a small part of my fall TBR, located right next to my bed to remind me to read. #riotgrams #falltbr #bookstagram

The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter is one of my favorite books ever. In my first year working at Mckay’s, I found and bought this really weird and gorgeous edition. Loving the book as much as I do, I made sure to underline my favorite passages, and brought it in to class when it was assigned in grad school so we could all ogle the cover, accidentally tearing the cover when I did so. Imagine my surprise and consternation when, looking for an online image to share with a goodreads group just now, I discover that it’s worth $250-$500. I guess I should’ve checked before writing in it. 😂😭😂 .

Got these two for a great deal at my local bookfair! They had Catwoman too, but unfortunately being a new release it was pretty expensive☹️

If you had a magic wand what would you change about your life right now?

I definitely would make time stand still or at least slow down. I'm having a hard time staying on top of everything, our teen boys one who is in wrestling and the other who is in orchestra, my marriage, my little shop, the dog rescue, friends, family, posting etc.. I'm trying really hard to enjoy some of these moments. For example when one of our teen boys is talking to me about something that happened to him in school and I really don't want to stop and have a conversation with him at that moment because there are so many other things that need to get done. Those are the moments when I just stop and focus my attention on them, because I know these moments are precious. In a couple of years he may not want to share these things with me. Then add a few more years and both boys will be adults doing their own things, going to college and living on their own. I will not be able to get these few years back.

If you find that I'm not as active here as i used to be, it's because of them. Yes, you can blame my family and the dogs lol I encourage you to not feel guilty when you can't stay on top of everything. Just don't neglect those around you who really need you. I'm so thankful for my little shop and for all of you being so understanding. I do enjoy reading everyone's comments and your stories as well. ♥

This beautiful picture with these awesome socks was taken by Bridget @darkfaerietales_ Her account is just brilliant. Please do check it out.
I hope you have a terrific day. ♥

Okay, so I did decide to start a re-read. (Who’s not the slightest bit surprised?) When a book is singing to you from the shelves, you can’t close your ears, can you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I remember reading an interview with Patchett once where she said she loved sticking strangers in tight places together. This is perhaps the most dramatic example, but once I heard it I couldn’t help looking for signs in all of her other books. Do you have a favorite Patchett novel?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Also: here’s my book and mug for #septbookstagram18! My favorite pose is with one in my left hand and the other in my right…
