#BeachDay I don‘t know why but the tagged book just isn‘t jiving with me 🤷🏼‍♀️I‘ve made several attempts and I‘m on page 104 but still I‘m not hooked. So I‘m putting this one aside and I started a book that was on my phone - Not A Happy Family & honestly, I‘m digging it 😁

TrishB Go for the one you‘re enjoying 👍🏻 hope you‘re having fun. 4w

Centique The photo looks lovely. Are the beaches nice? Are you eating lovely food? (Says the girl who hasn‘t been overseas since 2018 😍) 4w
BookNerd9906 I also have picked this one up twice and put it down twice. #solidarity 4w
Cinfhen I‘m SOOOO happy to hear you bailed on this one too @BookNerd9906 because I‘ve only heard good things about this book and I kept wondering what am I missing 🤷🏼‍♀️I might try again….or not 😉Exactly @AmyG I was forcing something that just wasn‘t working for me 4w
Cinfhen The beach is really lovely @Centique 🤩It‘s my first time in Europe since 2020 !! I will say traveling has been horrendous, long long long lines and lots of delays but once we landed it‘s been wonderful. I‘m eating way to let and not very healthy but that‘s part of vacationing, I guess. 4w
Centique @Cinfhen don‘t worry about it just ENJOY. You‘re finally back in Europe and it was hard work to get there so you deserve to enjoy every good moment 💕 You‘ve worked so hard for your lovely family when they were visiting so I hope you can just relax now and truly have fun 💕💕 4w
Cinfhen @Centique Much love 2 u P the Flea xxxxx 4w

Considering I bailed on 5 books this week, I‘m surprised I finished anything, but I did. I loved the latest issue of Saga, but while I enjoyed the others, I didn‘t love them. I consider both lukewarm picks. Onto my work book club selection today, since we meet on Thursday. I‘m hoping this one doesn‘t let me down. #moremehthanyay #bookreport

Cinfhen Love the graphics/ very cheerful 😃 Hurray for finishing 3 books and allowing yourself to bail on the others. I know you don‘t like to bail but you know what I say….#AllHailTheBail 🥰 1mo

With all the #BookSpin excitement yesterday I neglected to post my #BookReport ! A pretty meh reading week for me, a combination of house projects, racing cars on the PlayStation, and getting sucked in to a terrible paranormal romance series on Kindle Unlimited 😂 I did read the tagged book, finished the Jane Austen at Home buddy read, and also read The League of Gentlewomen Witches, which for some reason isn't in my picture. I also DNFd an ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) old Kindle book - I'm not doing great at staying on top of my #22booksin22 challenge, which I'm using to read the 22 oldest books on my Kindle, but I'm slowly chipping away at them... mostly by bailing on them 😆 1st of the month meant starting a lot of chapter-a-day reads, so I seem to have a half-dozen books on the go again!!
@Cinfhen @jb72
jb72 Hey DNFing them gets them off the TBR! 1mo
Cinfhen Absolutely!!! #AllHailTheBail 🙌🏻🤩😁 1mo

It‘s month end close week, so I may not get anything finished, but we‘ll see. I‘m tempted to bail on Sirens. It‘s one of the McIlvanney longlist titles, but I‘m halfway through and bored. I picked up Ten Ways because historical romance offers the escapist literature I want right now. When I finish it, I‘ll head back to murder books to feed my rage. 🔥 #weeklyforecast

This was the week for finishing books.

I finished the tagged #KindredSpiritsBuddyRead

I finished Havanna Taxi, the book about butterflies and Remote Sympathy.

I read Galetea and Emperor‘s Babe

I‘m currently reading Checkout 19 and I‘m not sure about it. Does it get any better?

Cinfhen Im about 300 pages into Remote Sympathy - while the subject matter is difficult I‘m really riveted to the story 3mo
Cinfhen Hope checkout 19 improves - great reading week!! 3mo
AnneCecilie @Cinfhen The story in Remote gives you something to think about. I need to think about this one a little before I post a review. 3mo

AnneCecilie @Cinfhen I‘m not sure if it‘s me or the books, but I‘ve decided to DNF Checkout 19 and that‘s my second DNF this month and I hardly ever DNF books. 3mo
Cinfhen I bailed on 5 books this month!!!! FIVE 😬 3mo
AnneCecilie @Cinfhen So you saying I shouldn‘t feel so bad? But I can go years with no DNFs 3mo
Cinfhen Exactly!! Don‘t feel bad - at all!! Sometimes we need to trust our moods- life is short #AllHailTheBail right @TheAromaofBooks !??? 3mo
TheAromaofBooks Absolutely @Cinfhen !!! 😁 @AnneCecilie so many amazing books out there waiting for you to fall in love with them - sometimes you just gotta cut one loose that isn't working!!! 3mo

⭐️ ◼️ I couldn‘t find the actual book on here….This is only the third book in my entire life that I DNF‘d (Did Not Finish). I feel guilty and like a total failure. I tried to push through it and got about 70 percent done but I couldn‘t do it. It was total Deja vue (not spelled right) I felt like I read it already….or maybe I have just read to many Beauty and the Beast retellings. It‘s also my #March #bookspin #LitsyLove

TheAromaofBooks There is no shame in bailing on a book that isn't working for you!!! As @Cinfhen likes to say #AllHailtheBail 😂 There are SO many amazing books out there that you are going to love - sometimes you just have to let one of the not-amazing ones go!! 3mo

Not a very good reading week. Busy with other stuff. 🤷‍♀️ @Cinfhen #bookreport #weeklyforecast

Megabooks Love that bottom row! 😆😆 3mo
Cinfhen So many awesome possibilities- at least all the covers are lovely 😊 I actually bailed on 3mo
BookNAround @Cinfhen I didn‘t love it but I‘m incapable of bailing. 😂 I wanted to send it home with my daughter when she left so I pushed hard on it. 3mo
Cinfhen I think you‘ve shared that with me before….your refusal to bail 😂😂😂 lots of respect as I‘m #AllHailTheBail 🙌🏻 (edited) 3mo

Can I just complain about these DNFs for a moment?

Bill, if sports AREN‘T exercise because there is a winner and loser, then why is boxing exercise? Your dad‘s handball games are exercise, so why not my tennis? #StupidDichotomy #annoying

I swear if they debated whether to call the police over the missing rare book one more time, I was going to toss my phone into a wall. Well, I can‘t afford a new phone, so I bailed. 🙅🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️


TrishB Love it ❤️ 6mo
Cathythoughts Complaints duly noted 👍😆 6mo

MicheleinPhilly Sports aren‘t exercise??? Good grief. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 6mo
Megabooks @Cathythoughts sometimes you just can‘t let it slide! 😉😂 6mo
Megabooks @squirrelbrain not my favs 😒 (edited) 6mo
Megabooks @MicheleinPhilly it was such a weird line to draw and then he kept getting his own dichotomy confused…just ridiculous! 6mo
Megabooks @kspenmoll they were still dithering about whether to call the police 41% in, and I was just bored. 🥱 Glad you felt the same! (But sorry we wasted time…) 6mo
MicheleinPhilly It‘s just such a bizarre opinion. I can assure you that Megan Rapinoe gets more exercise in 90 minutes on the pitch than I get in like 6 months. 6mo
Ruthiella Excellent ranting! 👍😂 6mo
Megabooks @MicheleinPhilly it was more that he was calling it “exercise” if it were for the sole purpose of getting sweaty and building muscle. 🤷🏻‍♀️ so would Megan‘s weight or drill days count as exercise but not her games? Honestly, the whole thing was just forced. I didn‘t care for his insights nor were his ideas of interest to me. And I really could‘ve done without the picture of his dad‘s sweaty chest hair in the sauna. 🥵🤢 6mo
Megabooks @Ruthiella thanks!! 6mo
Cinfhen Geez!! These two books sound BAD!! #AllHailTheBail 🙌🏻♥️ 6mo
janeycanuck @kspenmoll @Megabooks Oh no… I just picked Department of Rare Books up from the library and was so excited for it… 6mo
Megabooks @janeycanuck someone else just gave it an amazing review, so give it a shot. You can always bail! 6mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I didn‘t enjoy either for sure! 6mo
