Typically, I fall asleep when I read books, but Darla always inspires me to read. I have to wait for the library to get in her recommendation, “Say Nothing”, so I grabbed this one, “This is Not a Love Story” and I’m staying awake on the patio Ron and Frandtzy built and really enjoying it. #ironsharpensiron #summerreading

夏読書! 
一冊目  感動的、奇跡的メモワール
二冊目  心温まるちょっと非現実的な?ラブストーリー
三冊目  現代的?ラブストーリー

I thought Every Breath was super dreamy love story that Nicholas Sparks wrote in a long time and I loved it. 
A long way home was such an incredible story and I had to watch some tv clips that had covered this story. 
I liked how Liane Moriarty portraied both Ellen and Saskia's side of story and feeling toward thier love.  Can't wait for The Hyponosist's Love Story to be on tv! .

👩🏼‍💼Book Review: Whisper Network by Chandler Baker 💄 •
Rating: 3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ ~ •
•
So while this book definitely speaks to an important and timely issue for women, I did not love how it was executed. It's billed as a thriller that is part murder mystery and part woman’s manifesto - it is not. If you go into this expecting a thriller, you will be disappointed - in my opinion, it doesn't live up to the genre. I'd definitely classify this more as women's fiction with a whodunnit death thrown in. ~
•
In all transparency, I had a hard time with this book. The characters never fully resonated with me and I kept putting the book down in favor of others I was reading. The Whisper Network definitely has a slow-burn build up and I'm generally not a huge fan of those type of books. I did enjoy the end and despite having some thoughts on it, I didn't have the whodunnit figured out exactly which I appreciated. Still, the book was overall just an okay read for me. ~
•
While I appreciate Chandler Baker's intentions (definitely read the author's note) and her desire to be a voice for women and to support the brave women who have stopped whispering this is not a book I'd wholeheartedly recommend to friends or try to thrust in a fellow reader's hands. ~

Synopsis:

The Beijing Duck House in Rockville, Maryland, is not only a beloved go-to setting for hunger pangs and celebrations; it is its own world, inhabited by waiters and kitchen staff who have been fighting, loving, and aging within its walls for decades. When disaster strikes, this working family’s controlled chaos is set loose, forcing each character to confront the conflicts that fast-paced restaurant life has kept at bay.

Owner Jimmy Han hopes to leave his late father’s homespun establishment for a fancier one. Jimmy’s older brother, Johnny, and Johnny’s daughter, Annie, ache to return to a time before a father’s absence and a teenager’s silence pushed them apart. Nan and Ah-Jack, longtime Duck House employees, are tempted to turn their thirty-year friendship into something else, even as Nan’s son, Pat, struggles to stay out of trouble. And when Pat and Annie, caught in a mix of youthful lust and boredom, find themselves in a dangerous game that implicates them in the Duck House tragedy, their families must decide how much they are willing to sacrifice to help their children.

Forever putting library books in danger...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The closest we got to traveling this weekend was a trip to the creek to wade around and cool off. Hope y’all were able to fend off the heat!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My second @lucyknisley novel was a delight. An Age Of License is named after a French saying for “the time when you’re young and experimenting with your lives and careers.” Knisley deftly captures that sentiment in this travelogue which documents a trip through parts of Norway, Sweden, Germany and France.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Where French Milk (review on the feed) was more of a collection of snapshots, An Age of License had a distinct narrative arc to propel her musings forward. Knisley’s anxieties about work and love and privilege were infinitely relatable. And if I can’t go there myself, armchair traveling is the best. Aesthetically, I loved the addition of some color vignettes sprinkled throughout.

When you’re not reading, what are you doing? Besides reading, baking and cooking are my favorite things to do so I’m usually doing that. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I ordered Kitchen Confidential recently from ThriftBooks. It has been on my list forever, and I’m excited to finally get started on it. I’m loving the writing style so far, and I am seeing why it’s being called a modern classic. It’s witty, entertaining, and in an odd way profound. His passion and emotional connection to food jump off the pages. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
These chocolate graham cracker bites are delicious! My 4 year old daughter had a blast helping me make them. ⁣⁣Thank you to @booksandbitesroc for sharing the recipe with me. Not only have we bonded over books, but over baking (and life) as well! 🥰

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week!

I am going to attempt to do the #readingrush2019 this week. It’s a reading challenge that starts today and is taking place over the coming week  Just wanted to mix it up a bit and it’s an excuse to pick up something new that I would not normally pick. The seven books I have chosen are: 
1. Read a book with purple on the cover - This was the hardest one for me as I don’t have many purple books. I thought Are We All Lemmings & Snowflakes by Holly Bourne would be a nice YA novel and something I could get through relatively quickly. 💜
2. Read a book in the same sport for the entire time - I will be reading The End We Start From By Megan Hunter in the corner of my corner sofa, surrounded by candles and pillows. 📚
3. Read a book you were meant to read last year - Everyone has been taking about Normal People By Sally Rooney so I am jumping on the bookstagram bandwagon with this one. 🕒
4. Read an author’s first book - Educated By Tara Westover. I thought this was the best place to read a memoir and who doesn’t like a good first hand account of fundamentalist cult organisations.🥇
5. Read a book with a non-human character - I chose The Surface Breaks By Louise O’Neill as it’s a feminist retelling of The Little Mermaid and I love mermaids. 🧜🏼‍♀️
6. Read a book that has five or more words in the title - Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies Curated By Scarlett Curtis. I have been meaning to read this so thought as it was a book of essays I could read it across the week. 💁🏼‍♀️
7. Read a book then watch the film adaption - I chose Jane Eyre as its my favourite book and it’s just another excuse to watch the TV adaption and the film too. 🎞

Another book suggestion to pair with our Whale Ex Libris stamp. We love ‘The Sea’ which has marvellous evocative illustrations by @jillcalder_illustrates and a good level of information penned by Miranda Krestovnikoff, to keep independent readers interested. 
And the endpapers are a thing of wonder for a non-fiction title 👏(swipe to see!)
-
In addition to our Whale design for the nautically-minded we have crab, lighthouse, ship, deckchair, ship and mermaid designs as part of our ever-growing collection.
