Hello Bookish friends! I feel like I have been in a mini reading slump these past few days, but I am finally listening to a new audiobook!! This weekend has been pretty relaxing and I am ready for this last week of February!

I just finished a curse so dark and lonely. Let me tell ya it did not disappoint. I got sucked in and finished it in roughly 12 hours. Possibly one of my new favorites!

Considering I still have a Pam bobble head on my desk at work all these years later, I was thrilled to get my hands on an advanced copy of this book. My only small gripe would be that it could have been a little shorter but I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am now considering rewatching ‘The Office’ all over again from start to finish. Any big fan of ‘The Office’ will be a fan of this book! 📚
NEW RELEASE!!! Off With Their Heads (book four) “I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” -Lewis Carrol, Alice in Wonderland
Reegan Hart's life wasn't all it seemed looking in from the outside. Something from inside a locked, forbidden room was calling to her, but she wasn't going to let that stop her. But she got more than she bargained for when she broke into the room.
A magic looking glass, Wonderland, and the Queen of Hearts, that is what she found inside the room. Well, sort of. But it changed her. And she was pressured into doing things that she didn't want to do. All for the sake of becoming the next Queen of Wonderland.
Normally, I can walk right past the flowers in Trader Joe’s, but not today. These hydrangeas were calling my name. ☺️

David Xavier—and all those he loved or counted as friends—would forever be mouth-watering targets to men of evil intent. His wealth could settle a small country's foreign debt. Because of this, from the moment of his birth, his mother obscured his identity. Reborn as the man named Gabriel, however, he walked free into a world where the innocents and the weak cried out for a defender, for the hand of justice, for a guardian angel.
In response, an elite, paramilitary operation, Guardian, rose to stand between the evil men did and those whom they would make their victims. Gabriel was CEO. His goal was worthy and all consuming, but fighting on the side of angels didn’t make his nights less lonely or soothe the ache in his heart for hearth, home, and family.
Many of you may know that I have a bit of fatigue when it comes to war books (especially WWII), but I am LOVING this one so very much. It has been close to the top of my unread shelf pile for a long time, and I finally jumped in (on audio with some text reading as well).⠀
What I really love (aside from the richly woven, compelling story of two very different characters over a span of several years) is the nuance that Doerr reveals about the complexities of the situation leading up to the war for both Germany and the rest of Europe. I love the points made about how little each individual can do in the face of the tectonic movements of the time... and yet the real beauty in the story is the way that Doerr shows that though the times are bleak and the choices are few, those individual choices STILL make a profound difference.⠀
Have you read this one? What did you think? Is there something you've read recently that you were surprised to enjoy and glad that you finally read? What are you reading this week?

I know it's a sad kind of post, but it's important for me.
I lost my Dad nearly two years ago now, and since then I've been working very hard on translations of his writing. He was a poet and an amazing storyteller, but everything he wrote is in a shorthand that we shared but takes ages to unfold. I have a chest filled with his imagination. 💖

Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
-Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Alice had never wanted her daughter to be caught up in the mess Queen Risha had started all those years ago, but that's exactly what had happened. Both swept into one last adventure in Wonderland to save the world and Madison.
Alice and Alyana, with the help of Kydos make their way back to Wonderland to save the world, find Madison, and stop Queen Risha's reign of destruction. Raising an army of Wonderlandians they fight back. But will it be enough to take the Red Queen down and right all the wrongs?
"Come abbiamo potuto non sapere, per così tanto tempo, nulla di ciò che era, e tuttavia sederci alla tavola di ogni cosa e persona incontrata sul cammino?
Cuori piccoli li nutriamo di grandi illusioni, e al termine del processo camminiamo come discepoli ad Emmaus, ciechi, al fianco di amici e amori che non riconosciamo fidandoci di un Dio che non sa più di se stesso.
Per questo conosciamo l'avvio delle cose e poi ne riceviamo la fine, mancando sempre il loro cuore.
Siamo aurora ma epilogo, perenne scoperta tardiva.
Gdy słyszysz F1 ... Jaki kierowca przychodzi Ci na myśl jako pierwszy?
Dziś swoje 71 urodziny obchodziłby Niki Lauda
właściwie Andreas Nikolaus Lauda
(ur. 22 lutego 1949 w Wiedniu, zm. 20 maja 2019 w Zurychu) – austriacki kierowca wyścigowy,
trzykrotny mistrz świata Formuły 1
(1975, 1977, 1984)
1 sierpnia 1976 po Grand Prix Niemiec rozgrywanym na długim torze Nürburgring. Na drugim okrążeniu Lauda wypadł z trasy, uderzył w bandę i wpadł pod bolid Bretta Lungera. Ferrari Austriaka stanęło w płomieniach, a kierowca został uwięziony we wraku. Kierowcy Arturo Merzario i Guy Edwards przybyli chwilę po wypadku. Razem z Brettem Lungerem próbowali wyciągnąć Laudę z pułapki. Udało im się, ale kierowca zdążył dotkliwie poparzyć się i nawdychać gorących toksycznych gazów, które uszkodziły mu płuca. Lauda, mimo iż był przytomny zaraz po wypadku, zapadł później w śpiączkę, a ksiądz udzielił mu sakramentu namaszczenia chorych.
Lauda wrócił do wyścigów 6 tygodni (2 wyścigi Grand Prix Austrii i Grand Prix Holandii) później. Po powrocie zajął sensacyjne 4. miejsce w Grand Prix Włoch.
