#Repost @bookfairies_can ・・・ 💚We have a new book fairy in Milton, Ontario! The Glass Castle was dropped in the Milton Leisure Centre💚📚About the book: The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered. #ibeliveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #theglasscastle #jeannettewalls #milton #ontario #canada #booksofinstagram #instaread #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #readersofinstagram #goodreads #bibliophile #bookworm #bookish #mustread #bookstagram

🎬 #TheGlassCastle is based on the best-selling memoir by #JeannetteWalls that spent over 5 years in the The New York Times Best Seller list! The main problem with this film versus the Jeannette Walls’ wonderful novel is the fact as readers we can see how terrible her parents could be but also how much she loved them. Jeannette Walls’ parents, played by #WoodyHarrelson and #NaomiWatts, escape being labelled monster because the film has been written to make them look better than they really were. This is the paradox. They were bad parents and their children are lucky to not only have survived but flourished. But they weren’t at heart bad people. They made mistakes but were loved and gave their children life skills. #BrieLarson is lost in a film where she spends most of her time in reflective thought. She has shown herself to be an amazing actor, but she has trouble finding her feet in this role. #destindanielcretton has written and directed a fruitless ungiving film. The film would have been better as a chronological story, rather than introducing Brie Larson at the start. Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts strangely appear ageless, only changing their hairstyles! Their parts seem written for them as Hollywood stars, rather than as they were in the book. A total waste of a literary classic. ・ See link in my Bio @richard.film.critic for more Film Reviews, Movie News, Podcasts, Videos, Trailers on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube ・ https://www.facebook.com/filmreviewsandcultclassics/ ・ Each week my review can be heard on The Saturday Hour non-profit podcast https://www.facebook.com/thesaturdayhour ・ Each week my reviews can be heard on The Saturday Hour non-profit podcast.

If you are looking for a book to read, I can recommend this one. I read it about this time last year, and absolutely loved it. It's so moving and funny and thought provoking, not to mention so wonderfully written! I really want to see the movie adaption, but it isn't coming to theaters in Norway. . .

October 20📆 #HalfBrokeHorses by #JeannetteWalls is an Arizona history lover's guilty pleasure. 📚 FYI--It is the author's prequel to #TheGlassCastle which is a must read for anyone who needs a bit of reminding as to why we should be more aware and more understanding of ALL our fellow human kind. I recommend!! 📘📕 #EasyReads #GreaterPhoenixDigitalLibrary

L E S E R U N D E Morgen geht es wieder los. @der_leseblick und ich starten mit einer neuen Leserunde auf Facebook. Diesen Monat haben wir uns für Schloss aus Glas von Jeannette Walls entschieden. Ich persönlich freue mich sehr auf diese Runde, weil ich bereist viel Gutes über dieses Buch gehört habe. Es geht hier um die Autorin selbst und das was sie in ihrer Kindheit und Jugend erlebt hat. Die Eltern lebten außerhalb von gesellschaftlichen Normen, was als Kind vllt noch ganz cool ist, was aber immer grausamer zu werden schien je älter die Kinder wurden. Ich hoffe auf ein Buch, das mich emotional berühren wird. Wie immer seid ihr herzlich eingeladen, wir heißen „Just another Bookclub“, wenn ihr uns sucht 😉🤓 (https://m.facebook.com/groups/152959751926384) #instabook #schlossausglas #theglasscastle #jeannettewalls #atlantikverlag #books #book📚 #bookish #booktube #booklove #bookstagram #bookblogger #büchermädchen #bücherliebe #leserunde #buchklub #bookaddict #reading #readbook #readinggirl

I reread "The Glass Castle" this week after adding it to my September #BOTM. It was just as fantastic as I remembered. (Side note - I sort of hate this cover though...). ❤️ It's been awhile since I first read this and it was interesting to see what stuck with my from my initial reading and which portions hit me hardest this time. I don't want to spoil any scenes so I'll just say that on reading #1, I was hit hardest about the opportunities not taken. The chances these parents had to do better, but simply didn't take. On reading #2, I was most struck by how Rex and Rose Mary failed to protect their children from harm but, yet, how fiercely they loved their kids. I think this will always be one of my favorite books. Have you seen the movie? If so, what did you think?
