7 days until Christmas: Bear Town and Spiced Holiday Black Tea.

Bear Town took me completely by surprise because I am not the biggest sports fan. A book about a hockey town was just not going to be my thing. However, a coworker recommended this to me and said it wasn’t really about the sport at all, but how people behave when their backs are against the wall. I absolutely cannot recommend this enough. I was blown away by how exceptional this book is!

Score: 4.5/5⠀
⠀
I’d been hearing about Bear Town by Fredrick Backman for a while, but finally read it this month as part of a buddy read. It was a slow burn, but it hooked me by the 1/3 mark. Overall it’s a moving story of humanity, family, trauma, community and yes…there’s a bit of ice hockey in there.⠀
⠀
While the first part of the book did feel a little slow, once you sink down into the character development and go with it you start to really feel what their lives are like, their point of view, and appreciate their struggles.⠀
⠀
It is a beautifully-written book that will make you ugly cry, so be prepared for that. Even more so if you are a parent I think.⠀
⠀
It is also wonderfully narrated as an audiobook by Marin Ireland, and you can read more about it on the blog today: http://bit.ly/beartownreview (link in bio)⠀
⠀
It only lost half a point from me because the start was so slow.

Q: What are you most looking forward to reading in the new year?⁣
⁣
I can't assign these titles solely to January's TBR pile, because let's face it -⁣
⁣
With library holds, last-minute buddy reads, and all the other things that tend to interrupt my reading plans, that's too much pressure to put myself under.⁣
⁣
However, these are my top anticipated reads that I didn't get to this decade!⁣
⁣
Spot any favorites?⁣

·DAISY JONES & THE SIX by Taylor Jenkins Reid⁣
·A WOMAN IS NO MAN by Etaf Rum⁣
·THIS TENDER LAND by William Kent Krueger⁣
·ASK AGAIN, YES by Mary Beth Keane⁣
·LOCK EVERY DOOR by Riley Safer⁣
·KNOW MY NAME by Chanel Miller⁣
·MIRACLE CREEK by Angie Kim⁣

“Everyone is hundred different things, but in other people’s eyes we usually get the chance to be only one of them.”
I am in awe of Fredrick Backman’s writing style and his way of being able to incorporate such heavy themes so eloquently in his stories. This amazing five star read explores anxiety, politics, family, and choices. 
I’m so glad that @orangecountyreads and I did a buddy read on this even though I cheated a little bit 🤣

Beartown is set in the eponymous town and focuses on the local junior hockey team. Set against the backdrop of a depressed town that is obsessed with the sport, it examines themes of parental control, the cost of keeping secrets, loyalty, family, and regret. Beartown explores the hopes that bring a small community together, the secrets that tear it apart, and the courage it takes for an individual to go against the grain. •

What authors would you kill for a coffee date with?⁣
⁣
When I saw the #authorcoffeedate stack going around (started by @katieneedsabiggerbookshelf), I knew I had to participate! Here’s my list:⁣
⁣
📖JK Rowling: who wouldn’t want to have coffee with the creator of Harry Potter? ⁣
⁣
📖Steven Rowley: my ultimate favourite! Steven, I’m begging you, please have a book tour for your 2021 release, and PLEASE COME TO TORONTO! I want my books signed 😭⁣
⁣
📖Tiffany D Jackson: I fell in love with Tiffany last year, and I still love her writing and the topics she writes about to this day. Looking forward to September! Please also come to Toronto 😇⁣
⁣
📖AJ Pearce: Dear Mrs. Bird will make you laugh and cry all at the same. To have coffee with A.J. will totally be a fun experience!⁣
⁣
📖Fredrik Backman: my king! How awesome would a meet-and-coffee-greet be with him!? The awesomest!⁣
⁣
📖Jodi Picoult: my other queen! I met Jodi once on her last book tour here in Toronto, and all I was able to say was “Thank you for coming!” Like the total goofball I am. I promise I’d be more interesting over coffee 😂⁣

One of my favourite things to do is go for a walk with my family. The feel of the fresh air on my skin when I’ve been stuck in a lot is amazing & I don’t think I’ve ever appreciated it as much as I do now! ⠀
⠀
Sometimes little legs get tired & the sling comes in very handy! ⠀
⠀
I also notice our connection rushing back. Max hasn’t been getting as much attention as usual with everything that’s been going on, so it’s nice to have him close & have our little chats again! ⠀
⠀
Have you found you’ve been using your sling more or less during this time? ⠀

🏒⛸👩🏻🏒⛸👩🏻🏒⛸👩🏻🏒⛸👩🏻🏒Book #15: Beartown by Fredrik Blackman (a book with a great first line)

The Rybrary remains open during quarantine! Well worth the hype she garnered back in 2016 when she was published (I’m late). Took a minute for me to get into but well worth it.

Favourite series. 📚🏒⁣
⁣
Hey, friends! I read about a lovely little photo challenge on my Instagram stories, and I'm going to join the party. The challenge is called #ANovelPandemic, and it was created by @greyhoundtales. The idea is to keep us all busy and focused on the good stuff while we stay safe at home. Head on over to Kate's page for all the prompts! ⁣
⁣
The first prompt is to share a favourite series. Not only are the Beartown books one if my favorite series, both books also rank amongst my favourite reads ever. I love the atmosphere of these books, and Fredrik Backman tells a tragic story in a hauntingly beautiful way. One of my favourite parts of this series, though, is the setting. These books take place against the backdrop of a small hockey town and the characters who inhabit the space in different ways. ⁣
⁣
I can not recommend these books enough! ⁣

———— BOOK REVIEW! ———— ⁣
Paired with some clementines because that’s what I remember eating at halftime during soccer games when parents rotated bringing the snacks. Didn’t seem like the Bear Town hockey players were allowed snack breaks, only tobacco time. Could be considered their first mistake..⁣⁣⁣
⁣
Haven’t read a book with a sports-related storyline in a long time so this was a very welcomed read for me. When I was little I played on a co-ed soccer team (as you do) which ended up being all boys once the other girls quit. It was then that my love for the game began. My past coaches and teammates have played a huge role in shaping the person I am today. Once you experience the tradition of being part of a hometown team that grows and wins together, there is nothing quite like it.💙⁣ ⁣⁣
⁣
It took me a little while to get into this one as I was expecting to be more quickly immersed in the middle of a high-stakes game or the wake of a tragedy after reading the opening paragraph. There were a lot of pages dedicated to necessary character development surrounding the town’s pride and joy; their past and present hockey club members. I loved the advice shared by the coaches throughout the book, the ones we all remember being about more than just the game. I was inspired by the perspective of the strong girls and mothers who fought to have their voices heard in a town ruled by men (except for you Maggan, take a seat). The men who blindly cross the morality line to protect players obscenely in the wrong. For me this was a story about community and family values, inclusivity, and the cost of unwavering loyalty. I love how it ends with readers having to partially decipher the trajectory of the most subtly influential characters on their own. Nearly a 5⭐️ read for me, would have liked to see a bit more justice served is all. ⁣⁣⁣

💭Скольким трещинам ты позволишь прикоснуться к своему сердцу, покуда оно не разобьется?
⛸️Одна клюшка🏒 Одна шайба. Две команды. Двое ворот.
Это всегда лишь игра. Есть игроки и тренеры, есть поклонники и недоброжелатели, есть также мамы и папы и их дети. Равнодушных нет. Это их жизнь. ♥️Сердце этого города принадлежит хоккею. Но у каждого жителя есть своя история, своя боль, своя нужда. Это история о том, как на сложные вопросы люди разыскивают простые ответы, но в один момент всё переламывается, как сухая ветка под ногой. А может быть, и не в один, просто никто не хотел этого замечать раньше. Мальчишка с диким сердцем и печальным глазами, с которым ты вырос - как ты отреагируешь на то, что он не тот, кем ты его считал? Станешь ли смотреть на него как раньше?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Я снова под впечатлением, раздавлена и воодушевлена, спасибо!

I'm under very strong impression again, inspired and baffled at the same time. Thank you, @backmansk your #björnstad is amazing. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

🌟 I picked up Bear Town in the anticipation of an enjoyable read, though I enjoy all the character sketches but it’s about time the story should start getting unfold. 😒

My local bookstore is OPEN!!! Picked up these beauties at Oregon Books and Games in Grants Pass. They are constantly sterilizing, only six customers can be in the store and everyone has to wear gloves. I've been bummed that all the libraries are closed, so this was a great pick-me-up and late birthday present to myself. These are affordable paperback and/or used versions.

Has anyone else's book taste changed? With so much work stress I just don't want to read heavy, character-driven books without much plot. The library books I have at home are not working for me!

•NEW BOOK REVEAL•
Beartown by Fredrik Backman. I’ve heard this is a good book and know it’s from the same author as A Man Called Ove, which is on my #tbrlist , so I thought I’d give it a try. I’m about one hundred pages into it and don’t have an opinion just yet
🐻
Finished Little Fires Everywhere Last night and will be posting a mini review on my Instagram tomorrow and a full review on my blog in the next week. The Testaments Review is out on my blog now if you want to check that out-link in my bio. Hope everyone is having a great Saturday

Mi smo medvedi! je še ena čudovita zgodba izpod "peresa" Fredrika Backmana. Avtorjev stil me je ponovno navdušil, saj v na videz lahkotno pisanje odlično vtke precej težkih družbenih tem (naj ostane pri tem, da ne razkrijem preveč za tiste, ki knjige še niste prebrali). Zgodba, ki je postavljena v majhno mestece, kjer se vse vrti okrog hokeja, nam ne slika le športa in vseh njegovih dobrih ter slabih plati, temveč s prikazom tako najgrših kot najlepših strani neke skupnosti tudi nastavi ogledalo družbi, v kateri živimo. 
Knjigo, ki si resnično zasluži 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, zelo zelo priporočam v branje.

ФРЕДРИК БАКМАН "МЕДВЕЖИЙ УГОЛ"
5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
⠀📚Всё как полагается: плед, чай, открываю книгу.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Как-то раз вечером в конце марта один подросток взял двустволку, пошел в лес, приставил дуло ко лбу человека и спустил курок.
Перед вами история о том, как мы до этого дошли."©
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
⠀📌Ничего себе начало. Конечно же я перепутала и это не тот Бакман... Проверила. Тот. Продолжила читать. Обалдела.
⠀📌ℹ️ОБ ЧЁМℹ️
Затерянный среди лесов городок Бьорнстад. Все дышат одним - хоккеем, который касается каждой семьи. Когда в Бьорнстаде случится трагедия, весь город разделится на две команды. И шайбой, которую предстоит гонять, станет судьба подростка.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Если живешь в Бьорнстаде, нужно иметь толстую кожу, – это спасает и от холода, и от унижений."©
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
⠀📌Столько боли и щемящей безнадёги в одной книге...ну, это просто невозможно.
⠀⚪Вы знаете, почему мама каждый вечер пересчитывает своих детей?
⠀⚪Или другая мама отвергает офисную работу и продолжает мыть полы?
⠀⚪А ещё одна мама в любую погоду встаёт на хоккейные ворота отбивать удары?
⠀За каждой историей такой бэкграунд, от которого невозможно щемит душу. Не надо бояться хоккея, тут не о нём. Здесь вообще о родителях и детях, о групповом давлении, о жизни.
⠀📌Потихоньку становлюсь бродячим проповедником товарища Бакмана. Я маньячу по этому писателю со времён Уве. Он фантастически популярен в Швеции (как Абба, только Бакман). И вот нате вам, здесь он совершенно другой.
⠀📌Когда читала Уве, я выла. Когда я читала "Медвежий угол", я пожалела, что не курю. Физически больно читать, хочется выйти на воздух, потому что ком в горле. И даже не от описанной трагедии, а от последствий.
⠀📌Ах, да... Мне кажется, Бакман решил стать генератором цитат и статусов. Почти угроза: у меня всё выделено и я это буду постить☺️.

#happybookstack | @danythebookworm_ tagged me in her #happybookstack post...a stack of books that make you HAPPY! These 6 were all faves of mine from last year and I’ve yet to find one that tops my love for them this year so far!! I would also have included The Idea of You by Robinne Lee, but I lent it out. 😂 #storyofmylife .
These books make me so HAPPY ...(I’m not sure what it says about me if Verity makes me happy....but it’s rare to find a 5⭐️ thriller and it blew me away 😂)
.
I personally think all of these are the perfect books to become engrossed in during this stressful time! They are all captivating and unputdownable!
.
My happy books:
1)Daisy Jones & the Six by @tjenkinsreid
2)The Unbreakables by @lisabarr18
3)Beartown by @backmansk
4)The Silent Patient by @alex.michaelides
5)Verity by @colleenhoover
6)The Bromance Book Club by @lyssakayadams
7)The Idea of You (not pictured) by @robinnelee
.
Any of these make your happy list too??

☕️This book mentions the drinking of bad coffee quite a lot. Coffee is my favorite liquid snack. I take it semi light and sweet with a couple tbsp of creamer (not picky on the brand/flavor) or milk. Not interested in almond/oat/soy/cashew/hemp or other milk substitutes 🥴  I also find it much more enjoyable to drink from a mug than a thermos.⁣
⁣⁣
Found this paragraph in Bear Town to eerily parallel the feelings and experiences of so many people in the world right now living with uncertainty and anxiety over what’s to come during this global pandemic. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Let’s continue to keep spirits up by spreading positive messages, supporting each other and small businesses when possible, and making responsible choices! Thank you to those working in all fields that continue to serve their communities ♡

Beyond grateful to be in the comfort of my own home this Saturday morning, with a large cup of coffee and a good book☺️⁣⁣

Since I finally started paying attention to my physical books, now is a great time to make a #quaranTBR stack 📚 It's a challenge hosted by @jordys.book.club
.
Keep in mind that I'm a mood reader so nothing is set in stone here but these are the books I've been most excited to read lately.
.
Which ones should I prioritize?

First read of the year and absolutely loved reading this wonderfull book.
.
The first half of the book was basically introducing the town, the characters and setting the scene around the town’s obsession with hockey. Never expected that the book would deal with a serious topic in the second half. The story suddenly became more meaningful than I had anticipated.
.
The story is outstanding, emotional and thought provoking. There is not one but many charaters to love and Backman’s writing is exceptional as ever.

What a strange time we’re in at the moment. I live in the UK and we’ve been officially on lockdown for 4 days now. Is anyone else reading an awful lot more because I am? It’s good having the extra time but it’s also helpful to go somewhere else instead of overthinking everything. Also I miss my friends and boyfriend so so much but we’re making do with video calls, FaceTime and House Party because I refuse to increase the risk to those around me.

Happy Friday!! What are you planning to read this weekend? With everything that has been happening, it’s been hard for me to pick up a book, but I’d like to change that this weekend and finally finish Things You Save in a Fire because when I was reading it, I was LOVING it! Happy reading💕😊📚🙌🏼

Hey! Am terminat aseară "Scandalul", scrisă de Fredrik Backman și tradusă la Editura Art și acum încerc să-mi pun ordine în gânduri, să vă spun câte ceva, pentru că mi s-a părut o carte foarte bună, ca de altfel toate cărțile scrise de acest autor.🏒
.
Este a treia carte citită de mine, am mai citit "Un bărbat pe nume Ove" și "Bunica mi-a spus să îți zic că îi pare rău", scrisă de același autor și deși acestea două m-au lăsat cu lacrimi, cel puțin a treia mi-a dat doar o stare de dependență, m-am adaptat așa repede la "Orașul Urșilor" încât abia aștept să citesc și continuarea, "Noi contra noastră".🏒
.
Nu cred că mi-a plăcut așa mult niciun autor suedez la fel de mult ca F. Backman, deși am citit câțiva și chiar cred că literatura suedeză este ceva de luat în considerare (multe premii Nobel pentru literatură sunt câștigate de autori din această țară). Cărțile acestui scriitor sunt acel tip de cărți foarte groase, dar de care te atașezi de ele și atunci când te apuci să le citești nu le mai dai drumul până nu le termini. Cuprind povești emoționante, dure și realiste, povestite într-un mod care să te inițieze empatic și să îți deschidă mintea. 🏒
.
Pe spatele acestei cărți scrie: "Un roman matur, plin de compasiune", citat din Sunday Times și nu pot decât să le dau dreptate, aceleași cuvinte mi-au venit și mie în minte în timp ce citeam, "maturitate" și "compasiune". Acestea sunt și sentimentele predominante ale personajelor din carte.🏒
.
Povestea începe în "Orașul Urșilor" / Björnstad, un orășel foarte mic, al cărei singure șanse la supraviețuire este hockey-ul. Hockey-ul este "regele", singurul sport practicat de cetățeni, încă din fragedă copilărie, fie băieți, fie fete. Economia orașului depinde de victoria echipei juniorilor, la națională, iar pierderea jocului înseamnă pierderea vieții pentru cei din Björnstad, astfel încât, băieții care joacă hockey la juniori, capătă o imunitate și o imensă putere, până și față de adulți, în momente critice. "Scandalul" înfățișează viața într-un oraș mic, relația strânsă dintre oameni, dar și constrângerile, discriminările, misoginismul și cruzimea celor care fac parte din grup.🏒

What better time for you to start a series than now during quarantine?⁣
⁣
If I’m going to start a series, I like to know that I have the time to devote to it entirely. It’s like a TV binge (hello, The Resident) that I watch from season premiere to season finale. Therefore, I thought it’d be fun to share some book series recommendations while we are all stuck in the house.⁣
⁣
My number one recommendation to you is Beartown & Us Against You. It’s a two book series, so they’ll be quick to get through. It also happens to be one of my favorite books, ever. ⁣

“If you are honest, people may deceive you. Be honest anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfishness. Be kind anyway. All the good you do today will be forgotten by others tomorrow. Do good anyway.”⠀
⠀
Beartown: Fredrik Blackman⠀
📕📗📘.5/5⠀
⠀
Content Warning: Rape, Violence, Victim Blaming⠀
⠀
Beartown tells the story of a town that loves hockey. It is told from the perspectives of some of the coaches, the players, and their families. It’s so much more than a story about hockey though. It dives into real issues that are faced in our society today.⠀
⠀
I personally found this book slow going through the first half. It actually took me awhile to get into it because I’m not a big hockey person. However, the second half of the book really picked up when more themes besides hockey were being addressed. Overall, I thought the book did really well at discussing really difficult topics and I loved the alternating perspectives. I’d recommend this book, it just wasn’t my favorite! ⠀
⠀
Read if you like:⠀
📖Where the Crawdads Sing⠀
📖The Great Alone⠀
Hockey⠀
⠀
Also if you’re wondering about the weird bear, it’s made from a shirt that was dad’s. He passed away 5 years ago, so it’s an important weird bear lol⠀

So begins one of my favorite reads from 2018 and today's #throwbookthursday.  Aren't those the most pull-you-right-in opening lines?! I think this was my first "Bookstagram made me do it" read, and you guys have been coming through for me ever since...over and over again. 🙌⁣

QOTD:  What has been your favorite "Bookstagram made me do it" read? ⁣

"Late one evening toward the end of March, a teenager picked up a double-barreled shotgun, walked into the forest, put the gun to someone else's forehead, and pulled the trigger."⁣

QOTD:  What has been your favorite "Bookstagram made me do it" read? ⁣


Quarantine got me like 🤓 Tackling some TBRs that have been haunting me for awhile. In this uncertain, scary, trying time, reading has certainly lifted my spirits, kept me focused, and provided structure.

Lots to be said about all of these picks! They truly range from a new favorite to one that reaaaally didn’t work for me.
.
#putney is a fairly compelling #metoo era Lolita, that uses 3 different narratives surrounding the same events. Well crafted and beautifully written, but kind of lags in places 🍓🍓🍓.
#stationeleven is obviously quite timely, considering it focuses on a Shakespeare troupe traversing the US twenty years after a unique flu decimates most of the world’s population 😬😱 Mandel ties every loose end gorgeously, although some details along the feel quite rushed and undeveloped 🦠🦠🦠🦠.
#beartown is everything!! Getting to know all the characters and their relationship to the community’s winning junior hockey team is a bit tedious, but the pay off is well worth it. A remarkably rich page turner that warmly welcomes you into a community; something we all need in the current era of isolation! 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒.
#furthertalesofthecity is like a hot toddy on a cold, rainy day. It’s warm, fun and has a nice kick! I always love revisiting the cast of funny, quirky characters from the #talesofthecity series. The series just keeps getting better and better. If you’ve never read or only know the original HBO or brand new Netflix series, you simply must get into these books!🛳🛳🛳🛳.
#agoodneighborhood was a big ol’ let down. It has gotten so much buzz recently, but it didn’t work for me at all. I found the dialogue to be unrealistic and trite, and reeeeally didn’t understand the omniscient neighbors’ narration. I was hoping for something in the vein of #littlefireseverywhere but just found questionable trauma porn. 🌳.

Have you read any of these? What did you think? Sending love and stay home! 💕

Fredrick Bachman seems to get human nature more than most people. How our thoughts and feelings sometimes conflict each other over and over again. How you can think one thing, maybe even say it out loud, but feel the complete opposite. Much like how people will say "I'm fine" until they make themselves and everyone around them believe it, when it reality those people are the opposite of fine. I don't know that I have ever loved a book title more either. US AGAINST YOU as a title comes into play in so many different ways. Beartown against Hed. The hocky club vs. the hooligans. Benji vs. homophobia. Maya and Ana against the world. Maya against Ana.
.
If you can't tell, I loved US AGAINST YOU just as much as I loved BEARTOWN. I won't say too much about the plot, since it will give away what happens in the first book, but I will say that we pick up not to far after the events of the first book ended. The characters you think had hopeful endings may not, new characters will be brought in, and change and adversity is not done coming to Beartown. 
Bottom line: read BEARTOWN and then pick up US AGAINST YOU.
.
P.S. - I've seen on @goodreads that there is a planned third book called THOSE WHO RUN TOWARDS FIRE, possibly coming out in 2021, but I can't find out any more about this. If you've heard more on Beartown #3, let me know!

Posted @withregram • @katzndobs Thank you Moira Macdonald @seattletimes art critic for compiling a list  of SEATTLE-area indie bookstores offering online ordering even though they’ve had to temporarily close due to the “stay-at-home” order. Please, fellow Seattlites, pick one of these stores for your next book purchase and help ensure the survival of these amazing stores during this dark time. Please let us know what you order and from where. We’ll start: We pre-ordered WE CAME HERE TO SHINE by @susieormanschnall from @qabookco after enjoying THE SUBWAY GIRLS. We both enjoyed BEARTOWN by @backmansk so much that we also ordered the sequel US AGAINST YOU from @thirdplacebooks. See 🔗 in bio for links to SEATTLE-area indie bookstores.

Number 8 on my top 10 books to read while social distancing is Bear Town by Fredrik Backman.

Holy crap this was an emotional rollercoaster. Never before have I been so attached to the characters in a novel. Backman writes about a town that lives and breathes hockey, until something happens that threatens to rip apart everything they thought they knew. Let's just say I trauma bonded with these characters. ❗❗Disclaimer: This book does contain sexual assault. ❗❗ #bookstagram

How are you hanging in there? I’m doing my best to look at the positive side, like deciding what pair of leggings to wear each day and reading more! But this can be hard on all of us in different ways, know I’m here for you during this if you need to chat! 🌿✨

Sweet book friends are helping me during this time and I’m thankful to still do buddy reads during this crazy time! 📖

"네가 정직하면 사람들이 너를 속일 것이다.
그래도 정직하라.
네가 친절을 베풀면 사람들이 너를 이기적이라고 비난할 것이다.
그래도 친절을 베풀라.
네가 오늘 선을 행하더라도 내일이면 잊힐 것이다. 그래도 선을 행해라.
- 테레사 수녀의 침대 머리맡 벽에 적혀 있는 기도문
.
.
쇠락한 마을 '베어타운'의 청소년 아이스하키팀을 주축으로 벌어지는 이야기는, 스포츠가 특히 작은 사회의 인간들에게 어떤 영향을 주는지에 대해 너무나 멋지게 다룬다. 사랑, 감동, 아픔, 의리, 지혜가 다 들어있다. 스포츠를 통해 인생에 대해 정말 근사하게 이야기 한다.
아이스하키에 대해 몰라도 재미있게 읽을 수 있지만, 고등학교 하키맘의 나는 문장 하나하나가 각별하다.
이 이야기의 후속편이 이미 나왔는데, 당장 주문해야 겠다.

I hope everyone is ok, staying safe and following the guidelines for your area. 😘

I find although I can’t go anywhere (still working but from home), I can’t seem to get into reading... I just feel a bit on edge and lost.  But I’m trying my best to get back into a routine as I think this will help! I don’t think it helps that I’m currently reading “Mein kampf” 🤨. Maybe not an ideal book of choice! 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷‍♀️
.
.
I am thankful for our NHS staff who will soon be working flat out saving lives.  Absolute heroes ❤️. Also thinking of the other people who still have to work in other “frontline areas”. Without you this would be a lot harder. ❤️

What are you currently doing to keep your spirits up in this hard time?  What are you currently reading? Also.. if you have any great TV recommendations that would be great! 😍  Love to you all 💛💛. .

Book Review 17/55
📖: Us Against You - Fredrik Backman ⭐️: 4/5 likely 5 (see ⬇️)
💭: Timing is everything. •
I started this book before the sh!t hit the fan in regards to the Coronavirus and isolations. 
I think that stressor as well as the anticipatory tone of the first half of the book lead me to not rate it 5/5 ⭐️. I truly believe that if I read it at any other time, I would’ve dove right in from page 1. •
With all that said, here’s my review. •
The first half of the book is very focused on the politics and the wheelings and dealings that take place to sort out the future of the hockey club in Beartown, and if it will survive the scandal from the previous book. 
I found that aspect a little slow but at the same time it unnerved me the lengths some will go to get what they want. The end justifies the means. •
Once the focus moved I was hooked and finished quickly. 
Again I enjoyed the writing style of the author and the characters were addictive. I want to know about their whole lives. •
Without giving anything away, this book made me cry, cheer and shake my head. It was a wonderful sequel and I hope the story continues. •
I highly recommend Beartown and Us Against You •
🐻We are the Bears!🐻 •

9/10.
.
Life in quarantine. My dining room table sees a never-ending cycle of books, puzzles, and computer work.
.
Okay this book was FUN. Also very serious. But also very fun. I think this story was told from 25+ POVs, anywhere from a line to a couple pages each. It gave the story a whole new depth and fit the plot perfectly.
.
Beartown eats, breathes, and sleeps one thing: hockey. The town runs on it, the people live for it. When the high school team has a chance to put Beartown on the map, the people’s hopes, dreams, secrets, and failures will be put on display for all to see. I didn’t know much about this book before reading it, and I think that’s how you should do it too. Seriously, read this book.
