Sold my first book on Alibris today. Cost me $1. Wanted to sell it for $5, but hundreds of copies were selling for $1.99, so I went with the flow. Got $3.99 in shipping credit, paid $1.65 in fees, shipped for $4.80. So in the end, I paid a few bucks to ship a book to someone. The lesson was worth it though. I might start trying to sell the books I bind and paint. One day, a physical bookstore.
I'm so frustrated, right up to the last 10% this was working up to be one of my favourite Charlaine Harris. She builds up the tension to fever pitch as something stirs under the crossroads. But the boss fight fell completely flat to me. Deflating.
My first #friyayintro post!
1. More lazing around and sleeping; had my tonsils taken out this week and have another week to go before I'm allowed back to work (or anything else!).
2. I've read the Midnight, Texas trilogy by Charlaine Harris this month!
3. Winter ❄️ moving into a house with no air conditioning makes you hate summers! 😂
4. Hmm, tough one as I've been to so many. Probably either the NKOTBSB tour or the Pop2K tour!
5. Will do! 👍🏻
So that's the end of day 2 (day one for me since I didn't discover this till last night). Not a great reading day but I got to start Night Shift during my break at work so not all bad. Should be able to catch up with this challenge during day 4/5 since those are my days off! Woooo!!! #25infive
Having a little downtime before I put the boys to bed. #bookandsnack This is my last carton of ice cream for a while, once this one's gone. 😖 Have to go on a special diet for a bit to get some health issues figured out. At least I don't have to give up reading! #onthebrightside #benandjerry #sundaynight
I‘m pleased with the ending of the Midnight, Texas trilogy (although according to Harris she did leave it open in case she decided to add more books). I liked the new characters, as well as some familiar faces from the Sookie series. Would I like to read more? Oh yes! But, it was wrapped up nicely without being forced, and some things were left for the reader to imagine. 🌟🌟🌟🌟1/2 out of 5.
I don‘t feel very well today, but I did get out to get my toes taken care of & to pick up some prescriptions. Listening to the last Midnight Texas book while getting my pedicure. #selfcare
I really feel like Charlaine Harris is hitting her stride with this series. The characters are fleshing out, the story is well formed and succinct, though it did seem anticlimactic. However, it was a ton of fun to read!
It's #FriYAYintro time! 🍊
1. Stephen King, Molly Harper, Sarah Addison Allen, Joe Hill, and Maggie Stiefvater. 📚
2. Everything! I love October! But I really loved the Red Vein Haunt last weekend. 👻
3. YES. Although I scare easily, so it's a little masochist of me. 🎭
4. Dear God, what a choice! Well... I guess shark. If rather die in the ocean than in a jungle or zoo. 🦈
5. 77° so basically perfection. 🌞
I've put off my final visit to Midnight, Texas for too long so I dived in this morning. Definitely my favorite Charlaine Harris series. Also, Fiji shares my maiden name and her sister Kiki shares my nickname (one of my nephews used to call me Aunt Kiki when he was little, but my brother has shortened it to Keeks).Hmm... maybe Kiki Cavanaugh would be a good pen name.

I‘ve started Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero for November book club....but there‘s no reason I can‘t also read a Kindle book concurrently. 😁
Finally the answers I was looking for (from watching the TV show - I'm 2 episodes away from finishing) - the show seems to be a jumble of events from book 1 and 3. Quite happy to see Quinn the WereTiger again ♥️. This was the fastest moving book in the trilogy but CH awkward phrasing struck again and left me like 🙄 I'm so pleased to have knocked thru a series in such a short time - the book slump fog is lifting!
A pick for this 3rd book & the series. Harris wrote it as a trilogy but I'd be happy if she continued. Not my favorite of her series but I liked the characters-both new & those that popped up from other books & the humor. This book gets points for plenty of Quinn 🐯& between the weretigers & Mr. Snuggly (Fiji's snarky😼familiar with special talents), there are cats & #catpeople so I'm using it for today's #septembowie prompt. Max❤️Mr. Snuggly too.
Day 25 #FallIntoBooks #NextUp What's next up this week is finishing up a stack of books I've started: The Road to Jonestown is my current audiobook, Hanna Who Fell From the Sky & Ayurveda Made Easy are for blog reviews, Farmer Boy is for virtual foodie bookclub, Night Shift is a library e-book--due back very soon & Hunger Moon is an #ARC & part of a mystery-thriller series I like. It's another busy week so we'll see how much reading gets done.📚😬
Eh. I liked the characters but overall this series was just ok for me. I loved Sookie & really liked the Harper books. I'm sad I didn't love it. I did like it more than Aurora Teagarden & I'm curious to see what they did with the show.
This kid ❤️📖
Gonna give this a whirl 😏
Reading is an escape for me!!! A lot of stressers in my life right now, about to lose my house, lost insurance coverage, and having to move somewhere!!
Sure hope this calms my heart and mind lol
I thought her second book suffered middle-book lag before ending on a strong note. The concluding book to the trilogy earned a two-star rating on Goodreads, my first to hand out. The plotting seemed rushed, the characters flattened in the process, and it just missed something I have seen in early Sookie Stackhouse novels. (Heart?)
If I had to point out one flaw, it's lots of telling and no showing. I read it to finish the trilogy.
Right people of Litsy, I'm on nightshifts until Friday morning so I need #recommendations for page-turning but not complicated books to help see me through. I get weepy during nights, so nothing sad, and I'm a big wuss, so no horror but other than that please suggest me some books! #help
