I believe that a well-known anecdote exited to the effect that a young writer, determined to make the commencement of his story forcible and original enough to catch and rivet the attention of the most blasé of editors, penned the following sentence:
“‘Hell!‘ said the Duchess.”

The Christmas Pact | Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward

It is a fun novel about two co-workers who plan to be each other's dates for the holidays and for a wedding. So what can happen when two single people pretend to be more than just acquaintances. The story is short to listen to and is full of physical attraction and romantic gestures. It is the perfect sweet Christmas story to get into the holiday spirit.

4 ⭐

Charlotte Holmes and Jamie Watson finally have a chance to start over. With all the freedom their pre-college summer program provides and no one on their tail, the only mystery they need to solve, once and for all, is what they are to each other.

There was a lot stuffed into this book! This was really about the fall of the Roman Empire in 476 AD and how Byzantium endured into the 15th century. The lineup of rulers read a bit like a soap opera at times but that only made it more readable to me. I‘m including a link to a podcast series (which is also available via podcast apps) Brownworth did on some of the Byzantine rulers.

While the ending is a little abrupt, I was pretty drawn into this memoir of growing up in the LeBaron Mormon cult in Mexico. It was enraging at times (okay, maybe most of the time?), deeply saddening most of the time, and slightly hopeful because Ruth was able to get out and help save her surviving siblings. Read for #bookclub. Book 4 of the year. #audibook.

vkois88 I read this one recently too! It was indeed very heartbreaking 98% of the time, but her story of survival was so hopeful to so many others in the same situation. I surely don‘t think I could have made through any of it the way she did! 3y
MidnightBookGirl @vkois88 Ditto! There is a 100% chance I wouldn't have made it to my teens in her same situation! 3y

An hour into this intriguing, award-winning suspense novel. Great voice and nuggets about family in the digital age. Trigger warning: opening includes a young person‘s fictional online suicide note. #intrigued #enjoying #audibook

This book is so good! It‘s about how two former felons built the biggest pill mill in the country, and how it was taken down by the police. Really great narrative #nonfiction and would be a good book for anyone interested in the opiate crisis. Narrator is great if you‘re interested in audio.

Cinfhen Did u read this one??its a crazzy true life story of the guy who ran and created the largest online pill and medical pharmacy 4y
AnneFindsJoy @Cinfen that story looks crazy! I think I tagged that when I saw you(or another Litten) use it for NF bingo #turnedoutunexpectedly (if I remember correctly) I have a hold placed for it at the library!! Can‘t wait! (edited) 4y
Megabooks @AnneFindsJoy That‘s great! I only have one spot left on my Bingo!! 🍾🥂🎉🎉 4y
Megabooks Have either of you read Dreamland? It‘s really good, too! @Cinfhen @AnneFindsJoy 4y
Cinfhen I can‘t remember what box I used it for @AnneFindsJoy but it‘s a crazzzy story!! Let me know if you get to it!! You too, Meg 😍 4y
Cinfhen I bought it as a #kindledailydeal #DreamLand but haven‘t read it yet 4y
Megabooks @Cinfhen it‘s really good! It covers how the heroin trade has taken OxyContin‘s place. I need to listen to it again. Good audiobook, too! 4y
Oblomov26 Yep this is a fascinating and in many ways a shocking book - shocking that they could operate so openly and flagrantly, but also shocking at how they were shutdown and the implication of this shutdown 4y
Megabooks @Oblomov26 I also found Derek‘s lack of remorse shocking, sort of. And how Cynthia could play so dumb! 4y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Thanks for the heads up on this one! I have it saved in Scribd, but haven‘t started it. And thanks for the reminder about The Mastermind also, @Cinfhen . I saw it in BOTM but also just found it in Scribd. I need to read Dreamland also—I have the print and audio! 4y
Megabooks @BarbaraTheBibliophage Great! I hope you enjoy them when you read them! 4y
