Ok ladies, good news. The book I thought was lost in the mail (Run, Hide, Repeat) was returned to me. So I've sent it back off to Sabina. I also have the last two books, so time to get cracking. #lmpbc @BeeMagical @ShelleyBooksie @BookishTrish

We lost so many authors last year! I feel moved to finally pick up a Mo Hayder novel. She was on the list of those who passed away.

Nute That‘s a nice tribute. I‘m sure that there are several authors displayed there that I didn‘t know had passed away. All of them shall be missed.💔 2w
LeahBergen The Worst Witch author, too?? 😢 2w
Bookzombie I forgot that Mo Hayder passed. I‘m planning on picking up an Ann Rice this year. 💔 2w

DivineDiana This display is a thoughtful tribute to the authors. I love that a printout of names was provided. Pulled out an Anne Rice and a Joan Didion from my shelves to read. I am not familiar with Mo Hayder . Will explore her titles. ❤️ 2w

God Hears Her, A Joyful Christmas

This is a short devotional for the month of December. Each one took maybe 3 minutes to read. It's a morning and evening one. It brings you back to the true meaning of Christmas. I can see myself reading this every December.

Thanks to Netgalley for the Kindle Version of the book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Facing Your Finances by Jessica Rohrer not listed in database.
With everything costing more these days and no sight of stuff going down in the future, I decided to read this book. It is very practical. Rohrer breaks it all down into layman terms with easy to learn statements that help you. I read it because, in the past, when I tried to stick to a budget it never worked. I think with what I learned, I will be able to stick to one now.

I read 30 books in 2021. Short of my goal of 50 and way behind of what I accomplished last year (47) but still full of remarkable discoveries: new authors, books I would not have picked on my own, themes I found out I fascinated the most a.k.a. astronomy, and genre I am quite fond of this year - narrative non-fiction. There were so many ups and downs this year that halted my daily readings but I got up and persevered and reminded myself 👇

thevagabondlawyer why I love to read: not only to be transported but to learn, to feel, to live, to commisirate, to laugh, to cry, to love. 👏😊

Here's my 10 best books read this year. These books were fascinating and very diverse. I hope you'll check them out. 🙏

Cheers to more meaningful books and readings in 2022. 🍻

I was thinking that I'll not be able to achieve my goal for this year since july maybe ? But I did it and I can't believe that I managed to do this! This was such a hectic year for me and I didn't really read that much (or so I thought) it is a weird feeling to be able to achieve my goal with all the problems and things that kept me unmotivated to do anything at all this year. I'm ecstatic that I was able to do it!!!

As much as I love Rainbow Roswell‘s novels, this short story comes across more as a writing exercise that was never completed than a standalone text, short story or otherwise. Disappointing—read one of her novels instead.

If The Fates Allow by Rainbow Rowell

This is a VERY short novella, I feel like I'm cheating by counting it on Goodreads 😂 but it's SO GOOD.

If you, like me, tried (and still try) to do all of the right things during the pandemic you will find this to be both funny and relatable. I seriously feel a kinship here. Also, this gem is FREE for Prime members as both an audio and an ebook. I wish Litsy would get it in their library already!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I have Litsy app for Android phone. I've gave permission for Notifications. Sometimes I will get one right after I post something but then no more. Is there a setting I'm missing?
