#sundayreading was long awaiting new book from genius writer, but… disappointing so far. It’s a political diatribe about the state of the environment which is sooo depressing even if it’s all true 😔 Is it means to want a good story rather than a lecture? I’ll keep going for now…#sundayreads #bookstagram

Luckily my kids aren't likely to pester me for it because I think I'd be easily persuaded. #christmasdecor
