⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The third and final instalment in The Rosie series is call The Rosie Result. This story takes place 11 years after the last story ended. Don and Rosie (and Hudson) are now living in Australia having similar jobs to what they did in New York. The difference is Hudson, their 11 year old son who has some behaviour challenges and quirks that fall in line with those of his father. Hudson is involved in some serious school incidents that attract the scrutiny of the principal who demands the attention of the parents. Don devises a new plan in cooperation with Rosie to spend more time with Hudson and leave his own research job at what might be a serendipitous time. Rosie returns to work full time. So now Don will be responsible for Hudson during school hours. On top of this Don decides to open a cocktail bar. This was my favourite of the trio of Rosie Books. I felt it had the best pace, introduced new characters and brought back old ones and had a better balance of which character was speaking. I got a much more satisfactory picture of Rosie as a character which I felt lacked in the second book. I enjoyed that while this book had many funny moments, it also paid homage to people with autism in a respectful way. The language we use, the stereotypes we have and the assumptions about abilities that we make. Even Don’s awareness of ensuring he treats his son differently than he was treated was special. He recognizes that the communication has to come in a specific way for Hudson to feel listened to and be able to feel like he participated in any decisions.

Gozie and I probably went to three bookstores in Bangalore and contemplated getting this book at each one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📚 Long story short, we didn’t get Becoming by Michelle Obama at any of those stores because we were too indecisive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📚 However, about ten minutes before our flight back home, we rushed to the bookstore near our gate and finally got it! That’s true last minute thinking if you ask me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📚 The deal I made with Gozie was that he could read the book first. After he finished, it would be my turn. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📚 Well, his turn is now over. Hearing his glowing review of Michelle Obama’s story, has made me excited to get to know more about our former First Lady. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📚 I’m already a chapter in and I can’t put the book down! It’s really good so far. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📚 What are you currently reading?
Thank you so much @berkleypub for providing me a free finished copy of #mylovelywife by #samanthadowning. #partner#berkleybookstagram . ••• I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this one! This is high on my TBR list! Comment down below one of your fave thrillers. I don’t think I have read enough of it!
Embracing the gloomy day- curtains still mostly closed, heater on, and candles/incense in full swing. About to make coffee and get back to work ☕📰 My printer isn't working atm, so I am doing all of my research reading online and my eyes absolutely hate me. Printing journal articles to read by hand seems like the height of luxury right now. I hope everyone enjoys the long wkd x P.S This is Sabi turning around in displeasure after realising she burnt some of her fur while leaning up against the candle 🔫😞
📖 My Pillow Keeps Moving! by Laura Gehl, 2018. This is a silly story about a man who tries to buy multiple things, but they all end up just being the same DOG. Finally the man realizes that maybe what he really wants is a dog.
Best. Book mail. Week. EVER!! 📣📣 Shout out to @bloomsburypublishing @penguinbooks @scribnerbooks @williammorrowbooks @graywolfpress @vikingbooks for all this wicked and #gifted book swag 🤤📚! • This week has been cray, like Kanye cray 🦐! Tomorrow is Friday which means 💵! And, another weekend filled with literary critical analysis (yaaay) 🤪! I’m still deep in DEAR LIFE by Alice Munro. Her collection of stories is no freaking joke. There is a reason why DEAR LIFE has not only won the Man Booker International Prize but the Nobel Prize in Literature too! Like, who does that?! Alice freakin’ Munro does baby! BOOM 😎🍹! • With the amount of writing she has done over the decades, I’m eager to read more of her work and accomplishments. Who else is a Munro fan?! Reading suggestions por favor! 🤙🏻
°I’d thought a bright pink covered book was most likely going to be a light romantic read, right? Danielle Vega quickly proved me wrong with her innocent looking novel, The Merciless. From its light beginning to heavy ending, I finished this book in one day! Vega’s descriptions, foreshadowing, and twists had me hooked and unable to put her book down. That’s how good it was!° ° °I absolutely love horror and everything that comes with it! So, when I came across this book I had to try it out! The beginning was good, but for my taste was a tad bit slow. I just wanted to get to the action already, which led to me speed reading through the pages. Surely, the book progressed and I was most definitely satisfied when I got to the main event° ° °The description of every action was done amazingly and I was able to follow along with ease. Every gory detail had me cringing and feeling along with Sofia. Her fear and courage were at odds with each other throughout it all.° ° °I had absolutely not expected the ending and I do feel it may have come out of nowhere, but that’s sometimes the fun that comes with books! My initial perspective of the characters had certainly changed with the amazing ending. After reading, I definitely had to pause and go through everything I’d just read because WOW! Not. Expected. At. All.° ° °I really liked this story and I believe Danielle Vega did a good job putting it all together!! It’s easy to follow and if you’re as hooked as I was, a definite fast read! ° ° °This would be recommended for those looking for a good enjoyable YA horror, with many heart racing moments!° ° °⭐⭐⭐

Just finished “There, There” by Tommy Orange. It’s hard to find words to describe how I feel after reading it. For one, I can’t stop thinking about it. It left me with a feeling of shock, shame, it made me uncomfortable and it made me cry. It was so meaningful to read about a world that, as a European immigrant, I knew very little about. It’s raw, it’s ruthless, it’s real - and despite the tragic stories that almost rip your heart apart, there is so much hope in it. This is really the kind of book that can change people, change our perspective, and ultimately make a change in our world for the better. Everyone needs to read this. • • • • #reading#readingtime#books#bookstagram#booksofinstagram#booklover#bookcommunity#booklove#therethere#tommyorange#booksofig
A late post from me today-- it's been a week! I'll be finishing up ESCAPE ROOM by Megan Goldin- looking forward to seeing how it ends! What are you reading this weekend? Should I add to my massive pile!?
this is the recipe of life said my mother as she held me in her arms as i wept think of those flowers you plant in the garden each year they will teach you that people too must wilt fall root rise in order to bloom -the sun and her flowers -rupi kaur contents: -wilting -falling -rooting -rising -blooming bees came for honey flowers giggled as they undressed themselves for the taking the sun smiled -the second birth
I’ve been on a streak of reading somewhat depressing books and I can’t explain why. This one has been on my unread shelf for a while and I think I’m finally ready to take it on. . It’s about a woman coming to terms with her life after her son goes on a shooting rampage at his high school. It was also made into a movie with Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly that I will at least attempt to watch after I finish the book.
Current read is one of @theworldbybrit fav books: Living with Joy by Sanaya Roman. I've seen her gift it out a handful of times. “Honor your challenges, for those spaces that you label as dark are actually there to bring you more light, to strengthen you, to firm your resolve, and to bring out the best in you.”
Girl, Wash Your Face! I loved every minute of this book. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. It’s targeted at women (hence the title), but it would make a great read for a man looking to better understand the female psyche. 😉 . . . @msrachelhollis touches on real topics that some people wouldn’t dare talk about with their closest friends never mind publish for all to read. Rachel’s writing style is so real and genuine. She speaks from her own experiences but is mindful that everyone’s experiences and takeaways from those experiences are different. Fun, thought-provoking, a quick read! . . . Have you read this book? If so, I’d love to hear what you think!
