  1. Shame White Teeth wasn't so great for you . I enjoyed reading your review, though! You explained your reasoning very well .
  2. Thanks @Onion Budgie!! I'm so glad you liked it . The book may find itself in my shopping basket soon!
  3. What's Up in February? - 2019

    That's not nice . I'm glad you're feeling a bit better, I hope you enjoyed your walk . Today I'm planning to do a lot of laundry and other chores. The weather has been lovely the past few days and will probably be like this for at least a few more days, and I'm really enjoying that .
  4. Rest in Peace

    May she rest in peace .

  6. Chrissy's Reading 2019

    I'm glad you enjoyed the Percy Jackson & The Olympians books . I've read the first book and liked it a lot, but I haven't yet continued with the series.
  7. I'm glad to hear you liked Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine ! I have the book on my TBR, but I'm always a bit wary of reading a book that everyone seems to love and is hyped up so much. I'll get around to it at some point though and hopefully will like it .
  8. I have that on my wishlist, please let me know if it's good when you have finished it .
  9. What's Up in February? - 2019

    It is a weird feeling! Yes, I feel like it is going by quickly! I hope you have a nice day, Madeleine .
  10. What's the weather like?

    It's sunny here too, and the temperature is quite pleasant for this time of year .
  11. Whew! We're almost halfway through February already! I had an appointment at the dentist this morning to get a cavity filled (my check-up appointment was in January). The dentist wasn't 100% sure she could do it, and if not she said she would have to pull the teeth (it's right at the back of my mouth). So I'm super glad that everything went well!! My mouth is still numb in places, so now it's just waiting for that to wear off. I'm so glad it's over again!! After my dentist appointment, my partner and dropped off a package and did a bit of shopping in the local area. The weather is nice today so we enjoyed our walk back home. My parents have a new car, a Tesla Model 3. It's currently black, but it will get its final colour over the next weekend (a kind of reddish colour that shines and looks different depending on where you're standing and looking at it). What's going on with you in February?
  12. We're halfway through February already! I didn't even realise we were still posting in the January topic . It's a shame it was a disappointment . I look forward to read your review . Did you like The War of the Worlds? I thought it was a great read. I've heard good things of Hard Boiled Wonderland and The End of the World (are they 2 stories? Or is that one long title?). I've not read a novel yet by Murakami, only a short story. I own a couple, so I expect I'll get around to it some day. I hope you enjoy Hard Boiled Wonderland and The End of the World . That's a shame . I'm currently reading Anger is a Gift by Mark Oshiro, a YA contemporary about a black gay teenager named Moss, whose father was shot dead by the police when he was 6. At his school things are going from bad to worse. Not only is it lacking in funds, but there are things like random locker searches by the police for no good reason. And things get worse from there. I'm loving all the LGBT+ and people of colour representation in this. I'm liking the book a lot so far. What are you reading in February?
  13. Busy reading

    I hope you enjoy Mort, I really liked that one .
