Yes, friends, I‘m staying near a Liquor Mart with a stellar selection of local beers. I shall drink one a day until my money runs out, or I get tired of beer.

Todays selection is from Bookstore Brewing (best name or best name?) and it was DELICIOUS. I maybe drank it too quickly while I read the first couple chapters of Sweet Valley #12, which I expect will be as awful-yet-entertaining as the first 11, possibly with a side of Real Emotions.

Lindy Coffee cream ale… sounds yum. 🍻 2w
xicanti @Lindy I‘d definitely drink it again! It went down easy. 2w

#12 of 2022 (Since July 9th)
Started: 10/31/22
Finished: 11/11/22
12 Days

Triumph of the Sun | Wilbur Smith

Book #12 in the Courtney family series. Smith makes the transitions between generations pretty seamless- the son takes over when the dad dies & continues on…a lot of repeating storylines/themes. Just the generation, and maybe location, changes. But there‘s gaps/overlaps between family branches that I wish were more clear. I had to bail & will quit this series now because at this point it just feels like it‘s on repeat.

I was reading this as part of a Litsy readalong.This is the first book in a Jane Austen mystery series. While I do like the idea of Jane Austen solving mysteries, I was counting the hours until this was finished. I found it tedious. I had read #12 in the series,”Jane and the 12 Days of Christmas”. I rated that one higher. I think the author improved her writing skills as she continued to develop the series. Had to finish early. Expires in 2 days.

TheBookHippie I liked the Christmas one as well. I‘m struggling a bit with this one. 4mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @TheBookHippie @DivineDiana there's like 18 years between when this one came out and the Christmas one. Plus author writes other stuff. Stuff so fair point that she would improve. 4mo
TheBookHippie @Crinoline_Laphroaig I figure it‘ll get better. It‘ll be fun to see the progression. 4mo

SQUEALS IN DELIGHT‼️ I would love to Host #PemberLittens Readalong to get ready for last book in the Jane Austen Mysteries Series. Maybe a Book a Month??? There are 14 Books. Chapter a Day might be hard to do. Maybe once a week Discussion Post? Would need to start in August 2022 or September 2022 at the latest.

Thoughts @sprainedbrain ❓️Maybe post and see if anyone is interested?

Crinoline_Laphroaig @MicrobeMom Interested? Everyone feel free to say no. 4mo

Sparklemn I'm in! I read the Christmas mystery (#12) and have been wanting to start at the beginning of the series. I agree that a chapter a day isn't necessary. I like @ruthiella 's idea to discuss 1/2 way and at the end. 4mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Phoebe and Her Unicorn book #15 … yes 15! I started reading these years ago, and passing them along to my niece, but she‘s apparently outgrown them. It‘s fine. I‘m fine. 😭😝 Her family are not readers. I tried. I‘ll keep reading them because Simpson is always good for a few chuckles.

sherri I love those. I need to catch up. I think I was somewhere around #12. 5mo
britt_brooke @sherri They‘re consistently fun! 🦄✨ 5mo
Cinfhen I LOVE that you‘re still reading them ✨🦄🌈💖 5mo
MaureenMc I love them, too, and now my 10-yo daughter loves them, too. 😊 I think I‘m actually a couple behind her now. 5mo
britt_brooke @MaureenMc Aw! I love that your daughter likes them, too. 💚 5mo

This is the 3rd book in the series and I enjoyed it. The two main characters have daddy issues and I was happy to read how they got closure. The romance was sweet but I didn't really care much for the sex scenes. 3.5 ⭐️

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 5mo
