Because someone wanted to talk about my plans and make sure I’m doing what’s best for me -_____-
Not now! I have no idea! All I know is my apartment is a mess and I have 4 loads of laundry to do
And I’m on my period :’(
I just want to watch tv all day and avoid responsibility
This book has been on my “to read” list for a while… Apparently, storost had gifted this ebook to my kindle in January 2013, but I only got the notification THIS January…. Anyway, it went straight to the top of my list, and it was SO GOOD. SO SAD. SO REDEMPTIVE.
Part fairytale, part coming of (old) age story, The Snow Child is about an older couple who move to Alaska in the early 1900s to escape the memory/grief of losing their first child. One night they built a little snowgirl, and the next day, the snowgirl is all mushed up, the scarf and mittens GONE. A set a foot prints lead AWAY from their cabin, and into the woods. WHO COULD IT BE.
Well it really is a snow child, her name is Faina. Her background was fascinating, the interaction between her and the couple was heartwarming, also the relationship between the main couple and their neighbors was lovely to experience, as well. Over all, I really liked this book. It was longer than I expected, and had a semi-happy ending.
I am a huge fan of magical realism (my teenage years were pretty heavily dedicated to Garcia Marquez and Isabelle Allende) and this had a vein of magic running through it. I won’t spoil it (I don’t think I have yet…) sooooo instead everyone should just read it.
I’ve been reading a lot of FIRST novels lately… I believe this is Eowyn Ivey’s first novel, but I would be interested in reading more from her. In the ebook, there is an interview with the author that was interesting AND a reading group discussion guide… I like that they put that info at the back, it helps me digest what I just read. Anyway, Ivey says one of her main motivations was to write a book that reflected the history/mystery of where she grew up…. Alaska. And when I thought about it, I hadn’t really read a lot of books that deal with Alaska in a loving way.
I give this book an A. Very solid. Thank you Jeremie.
I just spend 30-45 minutes finding all the things I like, add them to my shopping cart, apply whatever discount codes I’ve found, and then CLOSE THE TAB before purchasing everything.. It’s almost as good as actually buying all the things -__-
Things are looking up :) both positions are part time, I could do both and be a busy but much happier person
I feel like I finally have some good momentum going in my direction :)
