So excited to start reading “Anything is Possible”! I was first introduced to Elizabeth Strout when I read Olive Kitteridge (since I read all the books that win the Pulitzer in fiction) and I’ve been in love with her writing ever since 😍....what’s your favorite book? #coryns_mom

After reading #mynameislucybarton , I went straight to #anythingispossible which features characters mentioned in #mynameislucybarton . This book was recommended by @barackobama in 2017 and once again, Mr. President, you got it right! I loved that book! 📚📚📚 Il n’est pas encore sorti en France mais cela ne saurait tarder, j’imagine. Ma courte chronique sera en ligne dans la journée. 📚📚📚

I savoured the psychological exploration into a mother-daughter relationship that this book, #mynameislucybarton presented during our week away. The premise of this story: Daughter gets sick; mother comes to spend time with her in the hospital to support & reconnect! I could relate to this but with some MAJOR differences to my experience. Theirs is an estranged relationship with a pretty dysfunctional history... And in my case, my mum spoiled me rotten by lovingly cooking & feeding me for weeks with my fav food while I was zonked. Lucy Barton’s mom came to keep her company at the hospital and pretty much sat there the entire time - they just chatted & re-connected. To be fair, it was a good healing process for Lucy (& maybe even her mum). Elizabeth Stroud’s style reminds me of Miriam Toews’ (All My Puny Sorrows & A Complicated Kindness)... melancholy but in a witty uplifting & hopeful way... I really enjoyed this little gem & can imagine wanting to read it again in a year. This is my #book19 of #abookaweek and it reminded me of how much I appreciated the time I had with my mum to get to know her - from yet another perspective 🌷

Chorlton Book Club books 📖. Here is a selection of the books we have chosen over the past few months. I’ve enjoyed all of them so far but would highly recommend My Name is Lucy Barton, All the Light We Cannot See and Middlesex. 
If you’re part of a book club which books have you enjoyed reading and any you didn’t? And even if you’re not part of one do you have any good suggestions for a nice easy summer read? We are looking for something for June and always find that we get great suggestions on Instagram. 👍 
It’s lovely and sunny here in Manchester 🌞 long may it continue!! Enjoy your Monday 🐝

J’avais commencé à lire #anythingispossible , recommandé par @barackobama à qui je fais une confiance aveugle en matière de fiction littéraire, quand je me suis aperçue que #elizabethstrout y reprenait en partie des personnages apparaissant déjà dans #mynameislucybarton . J’ai donc rétropédalé et lu ce dernier en premier. J’avais découvert cet auteur avec #amyandisabelle il y a 20 ans, que j’avais beaucoup aimé et j’ai beaucoup aimé celui-ci aussi. Un roman dans lequel une simple visite à l’hôpital ouvre la voie à l’exploration d’une relation mère-fille et où la narratrice tente de se réconcilier avec un passé douloureux. Très touchant et un style percutant qui fonctionne à merveille. Je vais de ce pas me plonger dans #anythingispossible et vous en reparlerai dans la semaine. 📚📚📚 #jemappellelucybarton #editionsfayard 📚📚📚 #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #meslectures #lire #livreaddict #livresalire #bookworm #booklover #booksaddict #bookaholic #reading #leggere

Elizabete Strauta "Mani sauc Lūsija Bārtone"
Lūsija Bārtone pamazām atkopjas no, kā sākotnēji šķita, vienkāršas operācijas. Viņu apciemot ierodas māte, ar kuru viņa nav runājusi jau vairākus gadus. Šķiet, nekaitīgās tenkas par ļaudīm no Lūsijas bērnības Amgašā, Ilinoisā, ļauj viņām atjaunot saikni, tomēr zem aisberga redzamās daļas slēpjas spriedze un ilgas, kas Lūsiju pavadījušas katru dzīves brīdi: viņas izraušanās no nelabvēlīgās ģimenes, sapnis kļūt par rakstnieci, laulība, mīlestība pret divām meitām. Pašas Lūsijas vēstījums savērpjas spēcīgā, skaudri vērīgā, dziļi cilvēciskā un patiesi neaizmirstamā stāstā.
📖
Viss tik sarežģīts, bet tajā pat laikā vienkāršs, ikdienā sastopams un redzams, liekot vilkt paralēles ar lasītāja dzīvi. Tiklīdz šķiet, ka stāstā beidzot satausti piedošanu, tā izgaist, lai atkal parādītos citā nodaļā un tāpat arī pazustu.
Stāts vienai pēcpusdienai un vairāku dienu pēcgaršai.
📖
Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation. Her mother, to whom she hasn't spoken for many years, comes to see her. Gentle gossip about people from Lucy's childhood in Amgash, Illinois, seems to reconnect them, but just below the surface lie the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of Lucy's life: her escape from her troubled family, her desire to become a writer, her marriage, her love for her two daughters. Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant, deeply human, and truly unforgettable.

Had a very busy weekend @notewell_nick encouraged me to buy these as it’s my birthday week.  I enjoyed #mynameislucybarton so looking forward to this one and I liked the cheerful cover of the other one and I want to read more #nonfiction.  #theseabirdscry #elizabethstrout #bookstagram #birthdayweek #bookhaul #booklover #bookish #bookaholic #booklover #instabook #booktastic #readingaddict #readaholic
Åh, vilken sucker jag har blivit för de här grejerna. Ni vet, en-kvinnas-storys som är skarpt skrivna,  egensinniga, charmiga... och galet sorgliga under det skarpa och egensinniga och charmiga. Elionor Oliphant är fortfarande stjärnan (eller hjärtat ❤️!), men Lucys historia är kortare och därmed aningen skarpare, så jag kan inte sätta annat än toppbetyg. Om något så gick den för snabbt att läsa. Jag älskar verkligen sånt här språk, sånt här upplägg, sådana här karaktärer... Sorry, blir inte mer recension än så. Förälskelse kan inte förklaras! 😍

Currently reading... a nice short book! Less than 200 pages of tight, precise writing. For some reason I’ve struggled to choose what to read this week. I’ve started two novels and only made it 20 pages in before abandoning them. One I’ll try again when i’m in a different mood, one I’ve consigned to the op shop pile. I’m hoping for third time lucky with this one! #book #books #bookstagram #reading #amreading #readwomen #elizabethstrout #mynameislucybarton #penguinbooks

My Name is Lucy Barton
By: Elizabeth Strout

Lucy is reflecting back on her life and takes us to a time in her mid-thirties when she was very sick and hospitalized for about 3 three months. As she steps back in time we learn about the loneliness and sadness she has carried with her since childhood. Her mother comes to visit her for a brief period of 5 days. Lucy and her mother's relationship is strained to put it kindly. Her mother has never met her children, she doesn't ever remember her mother saying she loves her and yet there is still an unspoken love between both of them that is fierce and resilient. During her mother's visit she has many realizations about her mother and the relationship she has with her family. This mother/daughter relationship is uncomfortable much of the time but is grounded in love and honesty.

This was a really quick read that almost felt like an extended short-story. I loved Lucy's character, I felt both admiration and pity for her. The story is weaved together so nicely making it effortless to get through. The relationship Lucy had with her mother is something that I find difficult to relate with but something I know exists. It makes me appreciate my mother more than I ever thought possible.

😄 This is my first time partcipating in @boutofbooks readathon and it starts tomorrow May 14th - May 20th. You can still sign up by using the link above, come and read with me and many others!📚
.
I like that this is a relaxing readathon where you set your own goals. You choose yourself which book(s) you want to read, and how many books or pages you want read. 🤓 I hope to read about 100-150 pages each day and will not make a TBR, but choose the books along the way through the week.
.
I want to start with the book 📖: My Name Is Lucy Barton/Mitt navn er Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout. This book have been on my TBR for a very long time, so I can hardly wait to start reading it. I hope it is a good book that will give me a very good reading time! 🌹 I have high hopes for this one! 💗

@hydeholly lent me this some time ago. I started it, then stopped it, then started it again this week and have just finished. It is wonderful, bittersweet and well worth a read. #elizabethstrout #mynameislucybarton #manbookerprize #bookstagram #booksofinstagram
Another quick read. Liked, rather than loved, it (preferred her 'Olive Kitteridge'), possibly because I read too soon after 'Eleanor Oliphant', another damaged child navigating the adult world #whatimreading #bookstagram #bookrecommendations #mynameislucybarton
"I have sometimes been sad that Tennessee Williams wrote that line for Blanche Dubois, "I have always depended on the kindness of strangers." Many of us have been saved many times by the kindness of strangers, but after a while it sounds trite, like a bumper sticker. And that's what makes me sad, that a beautiful and true line comes to be used so often that it takes on the superficial sound of a bumper sticker." #mynameislucybarton #elizabethstrout #reading #books #libri #letture #reads #igreads #penguinbooks #bookstagram #libridaleggere #currentlyreading

'My Name Is Lucy Barton' by Elizabeth Strout: a small but perfectly formed miracle of a novel and a triumph of 'show' over 'tell'. #mynameislucybarton #elizabethstrout #beautifulbooks #lovereading
Taitavaa tarinan kerrontaa. Aina ei tarvita tiiliskiviromaania suurien (ja pienempien) asioiden kertomiseen. Hienoa, että Stroutia on suomennettu. Toivottavasti ei jää viimeiseksi suomennokseksi.
Very talented storytelling in under 200 pages. It's great that the first finnish translated Strout is out. Hope is not the last.

La penna della Strout è talmente lieve e delicata che quasi vien da chiedersi come riesca a disegnare personaggi così peculiari e distintivi. La storia di una madre e di una figlia che si amano ma, complice l'amarezza del passato, non sono capaci di ammetterlo apertamente. Toccante e dolce, intriso di tutto quello che non siamo in grado di dirci.
. 📖📖📖
《Quello della solitudine era il primo sapore che avevo assaggiato nella vita e non se ne andava più, nascosto nelle pieghe della bocca, a ricordarmi.》

I have used the word “trash” as my mother did that day in the hospital as she spoke of Elvis Presley. I used it with a good friend I made not long after I left the hospital and she told me, after I met her her, after my mother came to see me in the hospital, that she and her mother would fight and they hit each other, and I said to her: “That’s so trashy.” And she, my friend, said “Well, we were trash.” #mynameislucybarton #elisabethstrout #books

Iisit sunnuntaiaamut eivät menetä viehätystään kymmenienkään vuosien jälkeen!
"Nella sua confusione Abel non era in grado di collegare i propri pensieri né alla vita di sua sorella né alla giovinezza dei figli; c'era, dentro di lui, uno stupore impalpabile per l'inafferrabilità del concetto di tempo che passa"
Elizabeth Strout - Tutto è possibile 
_______
Comprensione (e, con lei, il sollievo che porta. La vicinanza, l'ascolto, la condivisione, la partecipazione): è questa la cifra caratterizzante l'arte di Elizabeth Strout. Senza fuochi d'artificio, saggiamente al riparo da forzosi artifici retorici, l'autrice Premio Pulitzer racconta la vita com'è. Il suo Illinois, il suo Midwest più genericamente, è la cornice di esistenze minute ma non certo insignificanti, di esistenze chiaroscurate che d'improvviso si illuminano grazie alla sensibilità di uno scrivere che è per Strout la diretta conseguenza dell'ascoltare, e del provare affetto.

"Nella sua confusione Abel non era in grado di collegare i propri pensieri né alla vita di sua sorella né alla giovinezza dei figli; c'era, dentro di lui, uno stupore impalpabile per l'inafferrabilità del concetto di tempo che passa" Elizabeth Strout - Tutto è possibile _______ Comprensione (e, con lei, il sollievo che porta. La vicinanza, l'ascolto, la condivisione, la partecipazione): è questa la cifra caratterizzante l'arte di Elizabeth Strout. Senza fuochi d'artificio, saggiamente al riparo da forzosi artifici retorici, l'autrice Premio Pulitzer racconta la vita com'è. Il suo Illinois, il suo Midwest più genericamente, è la cornice di esistenze minute ma non certo insignificanti, di esistenze chiaroscurate che d'improvviso si illuminano grazie alla sensibilità di uno scrivere che è per Strout la diretta conseguenza dell'ascoltare, e del provare affetto.

'Lonely was the first flavour I had tasted in my life, and it was always there, hidden inside the crevices of my mouth, reminding me. He saw that this that day, I think. And he was kind.'
•
'But that is how sensitive we both were, my mother and I. There is that constant judgment in this world: How are we going to make sure we do not feel inferior to another?'
•
'Whatever we call it, I think it's the lowest pat of who we are, this need to find someone else to put down.'
•
Why is Strout so good?! Her sentences are like liquid gold. I don't want to read anymore of her books because I don't want to run out. Does anyone do this with another author?

Short stories for a quick trip into #nyc Thanks to @justtherightbookpodcast . When I learned Winesburg, Ohio is Elizabeth Strout’s favorite I had to read it. #mynameislucybarton is an all time favorite. Also, Roxanne besides your podcast I love your voice!

Tahaton asetelma kotoa: tuima tyttö, jaloleinikit, Elizabeth Stroutin hieno romaani ”Nimeni on Lucy Barton”. Kirja oli minulle ennen muuta kertomus minuudesta oman elämän kertojana. Hienoja vaivihkaisia lukijan kutsumisia kertojan sisäisyyden äärelle. ”Haluan vielä kertoa, vaikkei tämä yksityiskohta kenties tärkeä olekaan, että”...Romaanissa ei ollut avainkohtauksia, vaan sattumanvaraisen oloisesti mieleen tulleita tuokioita ja ohikiitävyyksiä. Tekee mieli ottaa opikseen tästä tavasta kertoa. #elizabethstrout #mynameislucybarton #writing #narrative #home

Four novels last month: #commonwealth (Loved!!), #browngirldreaming (listened with my girls- fabulous!), #mynameislucybarton (not my favorite), and #neverletmego (which first bored me, then surprised me-- didn't know it was dystopian fiction. 😉) #katiereads

The books you see here are a combination of my coffee table books and the books on my nearby side table next to my reading chair. It's a mix of books I'm currently reading, hoping to read, or recently acquired!
.
📚Coffee table book #1: A book on the state of Pennsylvania which my parents bought me years ago when I was homesick for my state after moving to California.
📚#2 A LIFE magazine book on Frank Sinatra given to us for a wedding gift. (I adore Frank's music!)
.
The little red book is Notes from a Public Typewriter by Michael Gustafson and Oliver Uberti which after I saw it on a post by @bookmusings, I snatched up at the library. It's a delightful little book containing anecdotes and actual notes from Literati Bookstore's public typewriter in Ann Arbor, MI. It's heartwarming and delightful and would make a perfect permanent coffee table book!!
.
Lastly, I'm reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire aloud to my kids, keeping a large glass of water nearby as it's definitely the longest book I've ever read aloud! 😆
.
I've tagged a few friends or if you'd like to #showmeyourcoffeetablebooks, please feel free to play along!

whatever I know, and everything I write has been an effect and the outcome of the books I've had the pleasure to read. only fitting that I end the last day of National Poetry Month with a book review.

my name is Lucy Barton, is a book about a woman that grew up from nothing into everything. It is about depravity, about how the stinking rich treat the sorry poor, about how a father so traumatized by his own incapability to grieve and mourn has unleashed on his children, but not to cause them harm or instill fear in them. to love them, the best he knows how. and about a mother that only knows to love and give to the best of her abilities.

most importantly it is about Lucy, and the house she grew up in, the rags she wore and the marks she bore, the husband who reminded her too often of how she had nothing, and how she tried to cope with her new riches, one clove of garlic at a time.

it is about love and how dysfunctional the forms of it are, and how your idea of it is morphed and shaped by the environment you are brought up in. your craving for it, your misjudgement of it, all of it stems from that part of your childhood where you felt loved, or hoped for it.

my name is Lucy Barton, is also a book I relate to because it is written in first person and from the point of view of Lucy, it is a story about her life, and we all know those are the best kind of stories, the stories best shared.
- my name is Lucy Barton, a revelation, written for #Day30 of #NaPoWriMo
Props to @harnidhk for an entire month of prompts and this last one like every other one, was written by yours truly.

And the book hoarder strikes again. 😂 At P30 each this is a steal. I believe that these books were from library book sales from the US, bought from there then made  their way here to the Philippines. Three of the books does not have dust jackets and I believe that is the reason why they were selling the books cheap considering that they are just new releases. But hey, who cares about dust jackets. 😉
1. 2016 Man Booker Prize longlisted book My Name is Lucy Barton by Pulitzer Prize - winning author of Olive Kitteridge
2.  2016 Scotiabank Giller Prize and 2016 Governor's General Award - winning book  Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thein. It was also short-listed for the Man Booker Prize that same year.
3. A 2016 Audie Book for Nonfiction award - winning book Hillbilly Elegy : A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis which is a memoir by J. D. Vance. This book is now on its 51st week on the New York Times Top 10 best-selling book list.
4. City of Saints and Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson which is being optioned by Universal Pictures for its movie adaptation.

*No spoilers* So, last night I officially finished my third book this month- ‘My name is Lucy Barton’ by #Elizabethstrout. I really wanted to read this book as I was intrigued by the blurb and also (I’m embarrassed to admit) I loved the front cover. 
I am however left perplexed and unsure how I feel about it- did I enjoy it? How did I feel about the protagonist? Would I recommend it? 
Firstly, I am glad I read it & I wanted to make time to read it, so I guess that is a good sign. 
I know I felt a mixture of emotions about the main character - but I think she was a complex individual so that is probably why. I liked her and wanted to know more about her past- sometimes I became frustrated as the author didn’t go into more detail on aspects of her life I would of liked to know more about. 
Would I recommend it - yes, yes I would but be prepared to be left with lots of questions at the end. 
So it’s ⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me!

I have a confession to make. It’s a well known fact that sometimes, ok - most of the time, I plan to start reading one book & then dip into another one that takes my fancy. 
This is exactly what has happened with ‘My name is Lucy Barton’ by #elizabethstrout. It has been sat in my TBR pile and has been calling my name for a few weeks. I have almost finished it - it is another short book of 190ish pages- so will post my review once completed! So far - so good! 
Apologies to the previous book I had started to read - you are definitely next in line! #tbrbook #tbr #greatauthors #swapandchangebooks ##goodreads #goodbooks #literature #bookish #readersofinstagram ##booksofinsta #bookcollection #bookworm #booksbooksbooks #booklover #reading #bookphotography #goodread #booklover  #readinglist #readmorebooks #epicreads #ilovebooks #booknerds #IGreads #bibliophile #readingchallenge #shelfie #mynameislucybarton #bookishfeatures #thereaderslounge

Keltainen kirjasto on saanut uuden tulokkaan! Elizabeth Stroutin kirjoja on odotettu Suomeen jo pitkään. Nimeni on Lucy Barton on eleettömän vaikuttava romaani äidistä ja tyttärestä, menneisyydestä ja siitä mitä ei sanota ääneen.

Had a really cute book club this weekend for My Name is Lucy Barton. My mother-in-law organized it for when my mom and sister were visiting. We were joined by one other mother/daughter duo for a lovely evening of conversation! 📚

I still can’t say I love this book, but I did really enjoy talking about it. It brought up so many different topics and having mothers and daughters to discuss it with made it really special.
