I finished this one today. Another great installment in the #Dresden #series. I really enjoyed it! Pic of Lucy bc I no longer have the dust jacket for this book and thought she‘d be cuter. #DogsofLitsy #PetsofLitsy

Enjoying some time reading out on the patio during the golden hours of the day. There are at least ten robins and cardinals rifling through the leaves and pine straw in my ‘natural‘ yard.

A little #audiocrafting with #huey. He suddenly cares about yarn. 🙃 Lennox has already caused one yarn incident, so we‘re very careful around here. Started my first temperature blanket. It‘s so much fun, but will be quite the commitment!! #catsoflitsy

KellyK What a sweetheart… even if he gets your yarn! ❤️ 10mo
RaeLovesToRead Awww too cute! I fear for that ball of yarn 🙈🤣🤣❤ 10mo
jen_hayes7 @KellyK @RaeLovesToRead Thank you both!! Luckily for me (and the yarn) he gave up pretty quickly to take a nap. 😹 9mo

🎧 “Punctuality is for people with nothing better to do”

Oh, Mr Butcher, you‘re speaking my language. 🤗

Were-goats!! YESSS!

This was a quick fun FAST PACED story! This is book 10, almost the halfway mark of the series so far.

More typical Harry in a story with … Murphy, Michael, Thomas, Kincaid, Molly, Guard, Marcone, Sanja, Mab, Knights of the Cross, the archive, Nicodemus & the denarians.

But seriously … WERE-GOATS!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hell‘s Bells this is such a good series! So action packed and never boring. The entire cast of characters is amazing and well developed. The Dresden Files is always a joy to read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Plots grow more intricate as Summer comes after Dresden while Winter's Queen Mab has commanded him to be her emissary. And the Denarians are back in town to make things even more dangerous...as Dresden finds he needs to help Marcone.

#BookReport - Finished 5 books this week. Most were really great.

Currently reading A Court of Thorns and Roses on audio. I‘ve never read this series before and figured I‘d give it a try. I also picked up The Other Black Girl yesterday and am actually about 90 pages into Piranesi. (I created this earlier 🤣)

#WeeklyForecast - Will pick up my 2 #LMPBC books! A Thousand Ships and If I Never Met You.

Cinfhen I do that ALL THE TIME!! Create my graphics and then promptly start reading and adding different book 😆 1y

I definitely missed having James Marsters read this to me, but still enjoyed this book. (My library didn‘t have it on audio).

I‘m really enjoying getting back into this world and seeing what Harry is up to. I can‘t wait to pick up the next one.

#DoubleSpin #JoysofJune - I think that‘s book 3 done, I haven‘t been keeping track.

TheAromaofBooks I've been meaning to read this series forever!! 1y
Andrew65 I need to get back to this series. Well done 👏👏👏 1y

#BookTech - just got these book holders in the mail. It came with a pack of 3. Seems to be for different size books. They hold the book open and it‘s pretty flexible when flipping the pages.

We‘ll see how it holds up. It only seems to be for paperbacks. I guess you don‘t really need them for hardbacks but 🤷🏻‍♀️

LibrarianRyan I have had my Gimble for years. They made some advancements but mine still hold up 1y

Very cools story and, again, continuing lots of plot elements. Fey intrigue is, imo, the best part of the series!

#favor #reallyrandomfebruary I have the first book in this series (Dresden Files) on my TBR. This one is like number 10 or something. Yikes. So I have yet to read it and therefore not sure if this titular “Small Favor” is as advertised. @OriginalCyn620 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

TheSpineView Same one I choose. Also have the first book on TBR list.😋 3y

Another good book in the Dresden series. I‘m very much invested now into seeing what else the Denarians and fallen angels have in store for Harry and the gang. 4/5 stars.

While I‘m waiting for Jim Butcher to finally get around to finishing the 16th book in this series, I‘m rereading all of them out loud to my husband.

Seekingtardis I read a snippet from his website that he is currently on chapter 42!!! I can‘t wait any longer!!!! 4y
Schlinkles @Seekingtardis Agreed! And he needs to get a move on with the Cinder Spire series too! 4y
Seekingtardis Oh yes! I loved book one and it‘s gonna be another couple of years until we get book 2 😭😭😭 4y

On Libby, my library had a 6 month wait on this book. I couldn't wait that long so I subscribed to a free trial of Audible and got this book and the next in the series for free. 😊 Happy I didn't have to wait.

With so many movings parts - Denarians, Knights of the Cross, both Fae Courts and many other characters besides - this book could've been overwhelmed, but Butcher just works his magic & makes it a majorly entertaining tale.

Seekingtardis I adore Harry!! 5y

A couple of years ago, I decided to listen to all of the Dresden Files audiobooks, despite the fact I read every one when they come out. (James Marsters may have been a deciding factor in that.) This isn't one of my favorites, but I still recognized much of it. #readinglog #fantasy #urbanfantasy

Harry Dresden fights a cadre of fallen angels with a little help from his friends. This series is a bit formulaic -- same sarcastic dialogue, same overwhelming odds against beating unstoppable enemies, same beat-up Blue Beetle -- yet somehow it doesn't get old. I always have fun with Harry and friends.

🌟Ruined spines make me sad. Most of my books that are ruined are from trying to take off Thriftbooks stickers. I think they changed them some time ago, but I'm still a little nervous to order from there anymore.🌟

LeahBergen Grr. 😠 Their stickers are monstrous and evil. 6y
AngelErin @LeahBergen For real!! 6y
DGRachel I hate bookstores that use perma-sticky stickers! Pure evil. 6y

jpmcwisemorgan I just ordered from them so I guess I'll see what happens. If it's bad, I won't order from them again. 6y
AngelErin @DGRachel agreed!!! 6y
AngelErin @jpmcwisemorgan Hopefully it's not bad anymore. I think they did change the stickers. If you remember, let me know please! 😀 6y
jpmcwisemorgan I'm making a mental note now. Fingers crossed I don't misplace it! 6y
AngelErin @jpmcwisemorgan Haha that would be me! 😂😂 6y
