Finished Uprooted by Naomi Novik. What a storyteller she is! This audiobook was pretty long. There were lots of battles and lots of magic! I could see it playing out in my head. I love when that happens. #87 #BookSpin #AlmostAChunksterChallenge #BFC22 #2022AUTHORAMONTH

Finishing this book felt like an accomplishment, it was good and kept me engaged, but it just kept going! The romance was sweet for the most part. While being historically accurate, it is not what we may see today after "me too". The historical politics and time travel aspects were interesting and fun also. I enjoyed it and I will continue on with the series. ✨️

This is a really good long book. I fell in love with Alexander Chee's writing, his descriptions of the MC's dresses alone had me obsessed👗💃. I did feel like the book was wrapping up a few times, then a twist or turn would happen and off we would go to another part of the story. I'm glad I read this book broken up by a few months, I loved extending the experience.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Another one off the #AlmostaChunkster list! 😂 5mo

Up next...I‘m curious to learn about these countries I know nothing about. I‘m using it for the North Asia prompt in my Memoir Around The World Challenge.

The author did an excellent job of taking what little is known about Nefertiti and turning it into an intriguing story. She follows Nefertiti's life through the eyes of her sister. I'll definitely read more of this author's books. #ReadingAfrica2022 #Egypt #AlmostAChunksterChallenge (464 pages). It was also my March #DoubleSpin for #BookSpinBingo @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB @TheAromaofBooks

Librarybelle Awesome! I have this stacked already, so it‘s good to hear another great review of this book! 7mo

I totally fell behind in March...I anticipated more reading and less driving my kids around for spring break! So, I‘m just now starting my March #bookspin pick. I‘ve heard all good things!

Managed to finish off my #Roll100 for March.

I really loved this one. The characters were so varied and interesting. Their relationships complicated and sweet. While not much happens from an action perspective, you see the characters grow on their long haul trip. I will definitely be looking at reading the others :)

#reviewcatchup

As a lover of horror, I‘m a little ashamed to say this my first Adam Neville read. Even though I think this could have been trimmed down slightly (it‘s 530 pgs), I enjoyed this one. Kyle, a struggling film documentarian, thinks his problems may have been solved when he is asked to shoot a documentary about the 1970s notorious cult, Temple of the Last Days. The film schedule is tight and strange things occur as Kyle and his ⬇️

Bookzombie cameraman travel around the world to shoot locations and interviews. Cults are creepy to me even when well lit, so there was a lot of creepiness in this book for me. #Booked2022 #aboutacult #almostachunksterchallenge 8mo
