What a great first day at the Bath Flash Fiction Festival.
The latest National Flash Fiction Day #nffd anthology was launched, all the tutors read in the evening and there were some inspiring workshops and talks.
Tomorrow we do it all again :-)
i want gold.
i want the flaming rays of sunset at dusk,
the shimmering flecks of amber in your eyes,
the dusting of pyrite i once found on the rocks in my driveway,
the swaying fields of grain neighboring home.
that is how i'd like to go,
buried under a king's treasury of gold.
This summer I'm helping with Camp Hicklebee's, the summer reading program @hicklebees.
We had a great first campfire event with the talented @laurazarrin!.
Here's Rosemary checking out one of the WALLACE AND GRACE books, and swipe through to see the sketches Laura whipped up on the spot! #kereadsandreads
"Marilla, look at that big star over Mr. Harrison's Maple Grove with all that holy hush of silvery sky about it. It gives me a feeling that is like a prayer."
I just finished re-reading my childhood copy of Anne of Avonlea. Oh how I love her! And I'm greatly enjoying witnessing my friend @lblovesbooks discover the delights of this series for the first time, and my friend @thebookshelfofachampagnechild reliving the experience. I resisted re-reading the series for so long, because I was afraid it would ruin my memories. But I am so glad I have. If anything, I appreciate them more now.

the suited silly scholar
learning is a breeze.
he's got his Nobel prizes,
and a couple PHD's.
a brain filled to the brim,
but missing a couple screws;
call it information overload-
he forgot how to tie his shoes.
This collection of short stories had me enthralled since the beginning.
I have always loved Maggie Stiefvater's writing since picking up Shiver many years ago, and was delighted to read her work again (I haven't read her raven series).
As for Tessa Gratton and Brenna Yovanoff's writing? I own pretty much all of their books and haven't read them 🙈 i'm literally the worst.
But! After reading this beauty, I think I may have to add them to my August tbr piles (I am so swamped with books and being sick put me behind schedule).
But overall, the stories sound a lot like mine where people die (although i'm not as fancy and therefore I am not worthy!) but because of that I fell head over heels over this book.
Every story (some not as glorious but still wonderful) was compelling and left me sitting here like wth just happened and I LOVED it.
5 ⭐️ and an extra one that does t really count for anything except for myself just because of the doodles and this fabulously amazing cover.
BEA book 3/3 has been read! All three were FANTASTIC and releasing in roughly the same time frame of Sept/Oct . All very different but great stories that I am definitely recommending. Reviews to be posted closer to release.
