I didn't make my step count today. But since it was my first full day of using my tracker I mostly just wanted to see how it worked.
Also I finished The Uninvited which I really enjoyed for #bookfitnesschallenge & #lmpbc @umbrellagirl I plan to mail it to you soon.
I'm trying to finish Different Seasons. I was surprised by how much I liked The Shawshank Redemption but Apt Pupil is so disturbing. I'm having a hard time with it.

Ok, #LMPBC #ROUND05 #GROUPK
I choose The Uninvited by Cat Winters as my book. I'm excited to get started with this group! We're going to have fun.
Do you all want to send just the book, or are you interested in sending along a couple little bookish gifts? I'm good with either.

Still in my TBR

This book is so dull which is such a disappointment because the premise is great. I gave it 190 pages and half of those pages are descriptions of Ivy walking in the street, driving around, berating her one-dimensional Red Cross friends for not knowing how to drive, being afraid of Daniel or sleeping with Daniel even though they've barely spoken worth to each other. And where the hell are the ghosts!? There's been like 5 sentences about ghosts.

Ok....this is kind of boring. Do I push on? I am just having such a hard time getting into anything lately.

I'm a sucker for anything ghost. Bought this a while back and hitching to getting to it.

Do you know any other ghost stories worth reading? Historical setting a plus ;)

FairyHighRoad I really liked The Girl from the Well. It deals with Japanese folklore regarding ghosts and spirits. 3y
JazzFeathers @JoeStalksBeck Thank for mentioning it. It sounds good :) 3y
JazzFeathers @LagerthaShieldMaiden Sound interesting and different. Thanks for mentioning it to me :) 3y

This is the only Uninvited book I could find to tag this review. The book is by Mike Evans. The beginning of this audio book is hysterical. The hillbilly accents are epic! Lol

Haunting, atmospheric, beautifully written - I enjoyed my second Cat Winters read. I was completely caught up in Ivy's story, and what happens to her and to the place she loves and people she cares for.

JazzFeathers Bought this recently. I'm intrigued by the treatment of the ghost theme 3y
alexalovesbooks @JazzFeathers It's super interesting! I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. 2y
