Welcome to a special Saturday edition: Bookish Saturday & Saturday Snapshot. For SS participants, click on over to West Metro Mommy Reads.
First feature for today: my two lovely granddaughters, Aubrey and Fiona, are enjoying their “bookish” senior year doing some non-bookish things.
In this photo, Aubrey and friends are enjoying some free time from bookish pursuits:
And in this one, Fiona, with another of her various “new looks,” is enjoying some time with her mom, while letting us know, by flaunting her Monster Java drink, that she has non-bookish things on her mind.
And on to some bookish shots: Here is one of my bookish corners, with some of my older books…and a few family photos.
Books Coming Up:
Currently I am reading this enticing book from Patti Callahan Henry: The Idea of Love.
The story about a perfect love story….and secrets and lies. When Hunter and Ella meet in Watersend, South Carolina it feels like the perfect match, something close to fate. In Ella, Hunter finds the perfect love story, full of longing and sacrifice. It’s the stuff of epic films. In Hunter, Ella finds possibility. It’s an opportunity to live out a fantasy – the life she wishes she had because hers is too painful. And more real. Besides. what’s a little white lie between strangers?
Another one on my nightstand: The Sound of Glass, by Karen White, from NetGalley….
The New York Times bestselling author of A Long Time Gone now explores a Southern family’s buried history, which will change the life of the woman who unearths it, secret by shattering secret.
Because I just started the last Vine book on my stack, I had to order another. Coming next week: Bittersweet, by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore. I have been ogling this one….
Suspenseful and cinematic, Bittersweet exposes the gothic underbelly of an idyllic world of privilege and an outsider’s hunger to belong.
And here is one of my favorite bookish spots, complete with a wicker settee in which to curl up and read….
