I read these books back to back, five weeks before Olga Tokarczuk won the Nobel Prize in Literature. I said out loud to a friend one week before that she was going to win, and now, legally, I can put that on my resume. Many, many, have shared their thoughts on Olga Tokarczuk’s near-perfect prose, so I doubt there’s much I can add to the conversation. I will say though, that there is something uniquely luxurious about the way she writes. There are lines that are achingly memorable, and atmospheric. But more than anything her stories feel so complete. Every word is purposeful and perfect in its delivery, so that by the end it feels like a self-contained world. Very few books do that.
I’ve been reading a lot more lately which is nice 📔 it’s so much fun re-reading childhood favourites this time of year 🍂 how long have you been a reader? 🙂
Personally, I’ve adored books since birth 😂 I think it’s really interesting to hear how people became readers later in life though, especially as adults, it’s more of an intentional choice 🙂
How is it Thursday again already? Let me know what you’re all reading this week-anything fabulous?
Last week I was lucky enough to hear @lisajewelluk when she was here in Denver-such a treat and she told the BEST story about the last chapter of The Family Upstairs so if you haven’t already read it, I highly recommend you do!
On my channel today I have my review of The Family Upstairs as well as a couple of snippets & from the event (preview in my stories, link in bio!)

I placed our Thanksgiving dinner order the second @ellanaskitchen’s posted their menu. Now I’m counting down the days until I get to eat cornbread stuffing and chive and garlic mashed potatoes and orange scented green beans. I can’t wait to spend my Thanksgiving NOT cooking! I think they are taking pre-orders through tomorrow so give them a call or stop by. Also, cheers to all you folks who do your own cooking. 🤚
