🌲🌲🌲 If you love the THREE PINES MYSTERY series, drop me a 🌲 emoji down below and chat with me about this beautiful series! 🌲🌲🌲 • Is it ok if I just drop every other book I’m reading and binge read the ENTIRE Three Pines series? How did I not know about this series before now? I’m not going to “review” this first book in the series, other than to say: It’s so good. If you haven’t read it yet, I think this one should be added to your fall lineup. I will say this, some of the lines in Still Life brought tears to my eyes because they were so beautifully written. Like my heart ached while reading them...in the best way. Louise Penny writes with wisdom and grace. • Shoutout to @whatmeganreads since I originally saw this series featured on her account. Thank you for posting about it, Megan! ❤️ And a thankful shoutout to @what.jenny.reads for chatting with me about her love for Three Pines and the order the books are to be read in! Start with Still Life if you plan to read this series!❤️ • • • #louisepenny #threepines #meetmeinthreepines #homedecor #amreading #girlswhoread #readersofig #readersofinstagram #coffeeandbooks #booksandbeans #bookishhome #fallreading #pennypushers #becauseofreading #alwaysreading #mywhitetable #myeverydaymagic #simplethingsmadebeautiful #booksandcoffee #coffeetime #morningtime #bookphotography #bookworm #bookcommunity #prettybooks #bookstagramfeatures
I am amazed at the layers of mystery Louise Penny weaves into her books. And ALWAYS there are meaningful little nuggets to be found. Here’s two—1) “The leaves had fallen from the trees and lay crisp and crackling beneath his feet. Picking one up he marveled, not for the first time, at the perfection of nature where leaves were most beautiful at the very end of their lives.” 2)”Where there is love there is courage, where there is courage there is peace, where there is peace there is God. And when you have God, you have everything.” ― Louise Penny, The Brutal Telling.  #thebrutaltelling #louisepenny #mlhreads #mlhreads2019 #book81

"How often we make our worst fears come true by behaving as though they already were." Louise Penny I'm working on some abstractions. So much fear. Trying to pay attention to color and emotion and need. This is called Prologue because like all making, I am trying to focus on making a beginning rather than needing to be at my goal. #creativity #abstraction #collage #louisepenny #louisepennyauthor #handlettering #handlettering #handletter
Still Life by Louise Penny ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ When I needed something comforting to read a couple months ago, I thought of Three Pines immediately. I saw it on a cozy mysteries reading list at some point years ago, dove in and never looked back. She introduces you to characters in a way that makes an immediate impact, and the scene setting is unparalleled. IMO, every book gets stronger because these connections continue to grow, but Still Life is a fantastic start. AND THE FOOD! I wanted to make a recipe from the book because I’m almost every scene, someone is feasting on something delicious. Why did I decide to make split pea soup, the most unappealing thing to photograph? It just sounded so good. Next time I’ll pick something that look prettier. • • • • • #stilllife #threepines #louisepenny #bookreview #bookrecommendation #bookreviewbyellen #spoilerkween #mysteryseries #cozymystery #inspectorgamache #meetmeinthreepines #notjustaprettybook #reviewsmattertoo #foodinbooks
I have to admit, I’ve been loving all the shiny new books that have come out in the last few months and it’s made these back list titles seem even further “in the back”. 📚 Here’s a few backlist books that have been on my shelves for awhile that I really want to read and I’m going to make a special effort to get to before the end of 2019. There are some 📚BIG BOOKS📚in this stack, so I know it will be challenging! BUT I’m not going to stress or feel guilty if I don’t get these done because reading is supposed to be fun and I basically read what I want.😎 @reallyintothis and @novelgossip had a great idea focus on our backlist reads with the #fallintomybacklist stack.  I’m joining along with @readingintherockies to #readiscoverthreepines and starting the Louise Penny series. I’m so excited to start this series as well as the Cork O’Conner series by William Kent Krueger.  I’m embarrassed to admit I haven’t read The Nightingale yet, even as much as I love Kristin Hannah. 🤷‍♀️ Don’t judge.  I’ve had the Century trilogy on my shelves since each book was released. I know I will love it because i’ve loved everything else I’ve read by Ken Follett. Just haven’t made the time.  And of course, The Stand. 1153 pages. Nuff said.  There’s only four Liane Moriarty books that I haven’t read and I’ve heard good things about The Husband’s Secret.

my reading for the last week has been just this: all louise penny. i start these books off slow, i almost talk myself out of reading another, and then - at about the 100 page mark - i am totally + completely sucked in. i get so engrossed in reading, i lose track of the pages - that’s one hallmark of a five star read to me. the problem is, i’m now dreaming about three pines. on sunday, i woke up and wondered how clara was doing. so, the obsession is real + dave is recommending i throw a different type of book into my reading. ✨ other things i’m devoting way too much of my time to lately: the bachelor franchise, the prince of egypt soundtrack (okay fine no such thing as too much time devoted to this), + sitting in my car, not wanting to move. what’s one thing you’re * ~ obsessed ~ * with these days?
When I look at this stack—most I’ve read and some on my TBR list—I realize how it tells the story of my life. And this is just in a small corner on the desk in the kitchen. So many other “stacks” throughout my house!#booklove #booktalk #authorsofinstagram #imwritinganewnovel #poetsandwriters #jenniferklepper #fionadavis #anthonydoerr #deliaowens #janegreen #annelamott #tayarijones #louisepenny #ursulaleguin #ilovemylife #sandeboritzberger #anneenright #kazuoishiguro #writersofinstagram #literarycommunity #wordsmatter #writers #reading
Okay, I have finally decided to start the popular Louise Penny series that my fellow bookworms keep talking about😊 I am hoping it’s as good as what I’ve been hearing.  I have heard that the first one is a bit slow, but the following books just keep getting better and better.  I love an intriguing mystery ❤️ • “Still Life” by Louise Penny • • • • #bookstoread #louisepenny #stilllifebook #cozymystery #mysterybooks #bookishlife #bookgirl #fallbooks #bookseries #bookofig #bookstagram #instabooks #bibliotherapy #booklove #bookrecommendation #ratherbereading
Plaisir de lecture : ❤❤🖤🖤🖤 PAU-MEE ! Voilà qui résume parfaitement le début de ma lecture. Paumée comme jamais je ne l'ai été avec un bouquin jusque-là. Faut dire qu'en règle générale, je commence les séries par le premier tome, ça aide pas mal à comprendre qui est qui. Mais là, pas le choix, Un long retour de Louise Penny est une lecture imposée pour le Grand prix des lectrices Elle, catégorie polar. . . Si j'en crois Wikipedia, il s'agit du dixième tome des aventures de l'inspecteur-chef Armand Gamache ce qui veut dire que j'ai loupé neuf wagons avant de monter dans le train, rien que ça. Je comprends mieux pourquoi je n'ai absolument rien compris aux soixante premières pages que j'ai lues. Ceci dit, après ce passage en eaux troubles, ce fut guère mieux. Une fois saisi qui faisait quoi dans ce bourbier, j'ai sombré dans un ennui incommensurable, à tel point que j'ai presque regretté le moment où je ne savais pas à qui j'avais affaire. Au moins au jeu du Qui est-ce ? il y avait de quoi conserver quelques neurones en ébullition. . . Pour faire court, je ne conseille pas de lire ce polar de manière isolée comme je l'ai fait car l'auteure ne prend aucun soin à réintroduire des éléments de contexte dans son ouvrage pour permettre aux lecteurs égarés de prendre le train en marche. Au contraire, elle vous jette dans le grand bain d'emblée et tant pis si vous ne savez pas nager, fallait pas être en retard ! Comme il est quasiment impossible de dresser un portrait psychologique des personnages à partir d'aussi maigres informations que celles contenues dans ce seul volume, difficile de développer envers eux toute forme d'empathie. Alors on lit leur histoire, sans entrain ni pour leur sort ni pour l'intrigue. Intrigue qui se résume en grande partie à faire du porte-à-porte pour savoir si quelqu'un a vu récemment Peter, le mari évaporé de Clara. . .

Today's adventures included...#dailyroutines with lots of heating pad breaks. Did my menu planning and a #loadoflaundy DH did all the heavy lifting. Now I'm off to bed to spend some time with my book. Nite see y'all tomorrow. #dianeindenmark #louisepenny #abetterman #readingbeforebed
Three Pines and Rosa the Duck Christmas Stocking! 🌲🌲🌲 I completed this stocking as a custom order and it is now with a very happy owner.

I am finally settling into The Clockmaker's Daughter.  The past two days, I have set aside a couple of hours for reading which is more than I've read in the past two weeks combined. . . As always, Kate Morton's writing is as beautiful as her book covers.  I cannot help but think of Kerry @linesiunderline whilst I read this; I don't write in my books, but I have dozens of sticky notes on quotes I've absolutely loved in this story. . . With 150 odd pages left, I am savoring each one.  This particular book is different than her books before.  Typically, her books will follow two individual's stories, one present and one past.  In this book, the house, Birchwood Manor, is almost a character in itself, and the stories followed are those of the people who have taken up residence at Birchwood Manor. . . The story is about time, place, memories, home.  I almost wish I had a notebook at my side, in the way I do when I read Louise Penny's books.  Kate Morton's writing is always rich in reference to other authors, poets, and artists in the same way Louise Penny's is, and I think that I would probably reread all of Kate Morton's books the same way I'm going to reread the Inspector Gamache series. . . ❔  Who are your favourite authors to reread, and why? . . . . . . . . . . #theclockmakersdaughter #katemorton #louisepenny #reread #currentlyreading #currentread #becauseofreading #fortheloveofreading #bookquote #bookquotes #readmore #readmorebooks #bookcollector #bookcollecting #bookcollection #bookcovers #bookphotography #lovelybooks #beautifulbooks #bookobsessed #booklovers #bibliophiles #bookblogging #englishmajor #allthebooks #bookseverywhere #morebooksplease #mybookfeatures #theunreadshelfproject2019
Louise Penny can do no wrong, in my opinion, BUT I'm so glad to be done with this book. It was so slow for me, and I think a huge part of it had to do with NOT being set in Three Pines. I have come to love all the characters in that tiny town, and I sure missed them. ☺ Was the book horrible? No. I am curious to see what happens with Jean-Guy and excited to continue this series. ✨  #alwaysreading #amreading #louisepenny #thebeautifulmystery #gamache #armandgamache #readwhatyouown #lovereading #lovewhatyouread #threepines #threepinesobsessed #bookseries #bookrecommendations #bookreview
How beautiful are these bookmarks?! These are two of the Louise Penny quote bookmarks from @readingintherockies and I love them so much. You can pick what season you want in the photo behind the quotes. I particularly love the 4 sentences that lead to wisdom. There have been some sneak peaks at future Three Pines items in @readingintherockies ‘ s stories as well so keep an eye on this shop if you’re looking for some merch from one of my favourite series! . . #bookstagram #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #booklove #bookphotography #reader #booksharks #igreads #bookish #bookworm #bookish #igreads #instabooks #bookphotography #reading #bookishcanadians #reading #louisepenny #threepines #meetmeinthreepines #canadian #canlit #canadianliterature
Another solid #threepines book! I am not sure how Louise Penny does it, but I’ve never wanted to crawl into a book series more than this one.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Inspector Gamache is back at the sûreté , ready to solve murders, take down The Man, and basically save all of Canada! If you still haven’t started this series, stop what you’re doing and read Still Life! You can thank me later!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Also, for those who have read this book! Can we talk about the acknowledgements? 😭😭😭😭😭⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ No one could describe these books better than Louise Penny, herself “On the surface they appear to be fairly conventional and traditional, but that is, intentionally, just the most superficial reading. There’s a lot more happening underneath...They’re not really about murder. They’re about duality, the public face and the inner turmoil. The gap between what we’re saying and what we’re really thinking, between the pretty village setting and the violation that happens with these crimes…They’re about goodness, as well.” 👏🏽 👏🏽 👏🏽 ⁣⁣
Enjoyed another trip to Three Pines! Had a wonderful time! Only wish I could read Louise Penny's books a bit slower.  #louisepenny #minotaur_books #modernmrsdarcy  #bookstagram
Ny vecka och således ny färg i #pockethögen hos @my.loved.books. 📚😀 Denna gången är det blått som gäller och detta är mitt bidrag.

Nästa veckas tema är rött. 🎈💃🌷🍁 Får se hur många böcker jag lyckas leta fram i hyllorna då! #bookstagram #lästips #bokhög
THE BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY is number 8 in the Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny. It’s an illuminating peek into the musical lives of monks, complicated by murder (of course). This series keeps getting richer as it goes.  #bookstagram #mystery #armandgamache #louisepenny #threepines #amreading #bookworm #booknerd #read
It’s a perfect fall morning. I’m cozied up with a mystery! Getting out of bed soon...I swear. #cozymystery #louisepenny
What is it about this series? No, I'm serious. Tell me.  Almost as soon as I joined bookstagram, I spotted the Inspector Gamache series popping up all over the place. I'd never heard of it before, and nobody in my offline life seems to have heard of it either, but here? So much love for Louise Penny and Three Pines.  Of course, I did the only logical thing and picked up a few. I hugely enjoyed the first two, but got stuck on the third back in April - I wasn't in a cosy mystery mood, and it took an entire ten chapters for someone to die.  Now, with autumn on the horizon, I'm giving this one another go. But while the first two books charmed me, and picking up this one feels like visiting old friends, it occurs to me that I don't think I've ever completely understood bookstagram's love for this series.  Do you love the Inspector Gamache books? Talk me through it.  #bookstagramuk #bookstagram #bookcommunity #bookishfeatures #inspectorgamache #threepines #currentlyreading #amreading #currentread #fiction #readersofinstagram #readersgonnaread #vscobooks #louisepenny #thecruellestmonth #bookish #definebookish #womenwhoread
Finally starting my journey with @louisepennyauthor, thanks to the fabulous kindness of @my_readinghabit! I can’t wait to get to know the citizens of Three Pines 💚 #stilllife #louisepenny #bookstagram #booksharks #currentlyreading #crimefiction #inspectorgamache

As I was looking for books that I wanted to use for my #fallintomybacklist book stack I realized I had A LOT of unread books on my shelves 😳😬 Then I started wondering what actually qualifies as a “backlist” title? I know it’s not something brand new but what about a month old? Or does it have to be years old? IDK but these are all books on the old spectrum that I really want to read before the year ends. . Big thanks to @novelgossip and @reallyintothis for coming up with such a fun challenge and shining a light on all of these gems. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Spot any favorites you think I should grab first???
Started 4 books last night... because what else would I do on a Sunday night following an exhausting weekend? I can tell I'm going to enjoy them all, but so far, the standout without a doubt is Stiff. My plan is to read one chapter in Stiff every day, two in The Killer Across the Table and A Rule Against Murder, and in whatever time I have leftover spend time in Towers Falling, The Psychopath Test, and the book of essays I'm reading for #storyseptember. In my head, it's all completely feasible. 🤔 . . Do you read multiple books simultaneously? Do you have specific strategies you use or do you just pick up whichever you feel like at the moment? . . #currentlyreading #currentreads #bookworm #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #igreads #reader #readwhatyouown #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookhoarder #booknerd #readersofinstagram #teachersread #teachersofinstagram #booksofinstagram #fiction #nonfiction #towersfalling #jewellparkerrhodes #louisepenny #threepines #stiff #maryroach #scienceseptember
Happy Happy my Christmas Stocking from @awayupnorth arrived today and I LOVE 💕 IT. Glenna’s interpretation of my “Three Pines/Rosa” customization is spot on.  If anyone you love has a fondness for the Louise Penny (Inspector Gamache) series of mystery books set in the eastern townships of Quebec, this would be a fabulous gift for them. Away Up North uses high quality woolen fabric, delightful appliqués, rustic stitches and an artisanal flair - and all combine for a personal heirloom to enjoy for decades to come. . . . . #madeinmaine #mainemade #applique #wool #meetmeinthreepines #easterntownships #easterntownshipsquebec #gamache #louisepenny #rosa #duck #christmasiscoming #stockingstufferideas #christmasstockings
Yesterday's treat was ganache.  Today's is Gamache. Both invariably delicious!  #richmondva #azaleapines #threepines #louisepenny #chiefinspectorgamache #abetterman #mystery #québec #sûretéduquébec
Book Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5  I finished The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny yesterday and it was by far my favorite of her books yet, though I say that every time!  Set in the small village of Three Pines, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache must solve the murder of an unknown man, living in a cabin deep in the woods, full of treasure.  I could not put this book down. I was dying to find out who the murderer and murdered were. I feel like there are still some unanswered questions after finishing this book.  Following this read I quickly picked up Book #6 which seems to be continuing on the story! I can’t wait to find out more!  #bookreview #bookstagram #bookstagramer #louisepenny #thebrutaltechnician #book5 #newtobookstagram #lovetoread #booklover #firstreview #buryyourdead
