Has a book ever made you sob out of pure happiness? Well, this book did exactly that to me. It also made me cry from sadness, so lets talk about it. 🤗
Finished reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and oh boy...I have a lot to say, all good though! First of all, I must thank everyone who suggested that I read this book; for it was one of the most endearing books I've read in a while. If you enjoy a character driven story, let me persuade you to read this one! I don't want to give too much away but you will fall in love with most of the characters (that's a given), and wish you lived in that little island. I also enjoyed learning so much about Guernsey's history during WWII. The only thing that might take some getting used to is the format the book is written on, but if you manage to adapt, it will be well worth it!! Ok, this might be a tiny spoiler so stop reading if you'd like. I just have to share the moment that inspired my "happy tears"
~it was when Juliet arrives to Guernsey, and she starts describing everyone's expressions. 😭
~this filled my heart with emotions and gave me all the feels!! 💝
~side note: how cute is my little purple pumpkin? 🤗

This book is close to my heart. It is an exchange of letters between two lovers of reading located in different parts of the world.
.
.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows is a lesson in history and geography. History because its central theme is the German occupation of the English Islands. And geography because there is a tiny island called Guernsey off of the coast of the UK.
.
.
Dawsey finds a book that once belonged to Juliet (it has her name and address inscribed) and begins writing letters to her for book suggestions and discussions.
.
.
She soon finds out that he is part of a secret book club called the Potato Peel Pie Society that regularly meets over literature and pie! Soon, Juliet, the Londoner, begins to receive letters from other members of this little gathering. .
.
The book is imaginative, heartening, and educational. But what is a potato peel pie, you ask? Well, you'll have to read it to find out!

"Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad books." As I've only just begun this one, I've yet to decide which this book is, but I suspect it will be the former. Enjoyable so far, formatting as a series of letters. #bookstagram #potatopeelpiesociety #bookquotes

When you've scheduled reading time, but the puppy has scheduled cuddles and kisses time.

It is really hard to take pictures with a dog sitting on your stomach and licking your face.
