⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
I have been looking forward to reading The Great Alone, but also anxious about it because Kristin Hannah’s books are either a major hit or a major miss for me. The Nightingale is up there in my top books, but I have found all of her others too froufrou, until now! I really enjoyed this one, and it’s a really solid four stars for me.
-
“Alaska isn’t about who you were when you headed this way. It’s about who you become. You are out here in the wild, Girls. This isn’t some fable or fairytale. It’s real. Hard.” -
The book is experienced, mainly, through the point of view of thirteen year old Leni as she and her parents settle into a new life after moving up to Alaska based on her father, Ernt’s impulsive decision to take over the homesteading of land left to him by a fellow POW in Vietnam. -
It’s 1974, and Alaska is a self proclaimed haven for people either running to something or away from something. Leni’s family is a little bit of both. Ernt is suffering from fairly severe PTSD in a time before PTSD. Ernt’s presents itself thru violence, paranoia, and anger. The long Alaska Winter night’s compound his issues and it seems that just as Leni and her mother, Cora, are coming into their own, and blossoming in Alaska, Ernt is losing his grip. -
The Great Alone dives into a lot of tough topics, and the characters are dealt a lot of unbelievably tough blows, but due to the community and cast of characters that make up the community, this is still a story of hope, strength, love, healing, and understanding that had me sobbing like a baby by the end.

And just like that, I’m done with the main books of The Lunar Chronicles!!! Fairest actually greatly surprised me with in depth it got to Levana’s motivations and general evilness. I had saved this book for after I finished Winter because I didn’t want to feel any sympathy for her when reading the final book, but I almost wish I read it before (like you’re supposed to 😏) because, if anything, this book made me think Levana was even more evil than she was in the main series

Hallowe'en Party by Agatha Christie

3.8 ☆

This is my second book by the author and I can say that I enjoyed the writing style & Poirot. The story is mixed with clever foreshadowing with the large cast of characters that it's hard to guess who'd done it.

My first book by her was Murder at the Vicarage. .

Coffee, a pile of books, and a long weekend. What are you reading this weekend? #bookaddict #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #booknerd #librarybook #coffeetime

Happy #bookfacefriday The Lion and the Mouse. The moral of the fable is little friends may prove great friends.

From the #elmontelibrary. El Monte was once home to Gay's Lion Farm during the 1930s and famous for the roaring lion on the MGM's logo hence the big stuffed lion at the library. #bookface #memoriesofelmonte #elmonte #lacountylibrary #librarybook

Book 24 of 2018 📚 ❤️ I’m really surprised I hadn’t already read this considering it’s from 2004! Cecelia Ahern really knows how to write a poignant love story. Would definitely recommend if you want a light hearted chic lit novel. Oh and it’s all in the format of letters or instant messaging making it so easy to lose track of time in -

I LOVE this graphic novel by Guy Delisle, in Dutch it's called Gegijzeld (Hostage), published @scratchbooks. It's the true story of Doctors without Borders administrator Christophe André who was kidnapped by armed men and held in solitary confinement in the Caucasus. It's both moving and funny. Most graphic novels disappoint me because the moods and graphics are way better than the story, but Gegijzeld is fine on every level. Never read a page turning graphic novel before!

Books 83 and 84 of 2018

#geekerella as recommended by @unbreakable_spines - a nice little YA fiction / romantic comedy / fairytale adaptation.

#acourtoffrostandstarlight the newest offering by @therealsjmaas . I kind of feel this was a book of stories that didn't really need to be written. Like the filler episode of a TV series, it advances the plot without offering much to the viewer. A shame.

What is your favorite place in the whole world? Somewhere you’d love to visit or live if you could? Or maybe you’re already living there??
.
To me, Vancouver, BC is THE place. The years we’ve spent living there were the most fun, meaningful and memorable ones. I love how multicultural the city is, there’s so much amazing foods there, you get both the ocean and the mountains.. it’s heaven 😍
.
While I’m stuck in the desert of New Mexico, I dream of the ocean side walks and forest hikes 🤣😭

Oh @iris.apfel you are so fabulous! You might be an accidental icon but your musings of a geriatric starlet are nothing less than inspirational!

Sometimes a book comes along and it discusses just what has been on your mind. Hopefully you’ll be seeing this book a lot on your feed today as it is an important conversation to have. When I watched Blue Planet I was shocked at the images of the pollution in our oceans and over 1 million sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals that are killed each year by the plastic in the ocean. This book simply looks at ways we can reduce our use of it. To be honest I’d never even considered an alternative to cling film or glitter but here they are. Consciously thinking about the toothpaste, deodorant or even sanitary products we use can have a huge impact. I’m looking forward to using these products as they help me to be more considerate to this wonderful planet on which we live.
