I actually think this would make a cute Hallmark Christmas movie. Susan‘s expectations for romance are a little too driven by the histories of her parents and grandparents, but I‘m sure it will work out for her though. I‘m all cozy in bed now after walking right before the rain — reading and binging Supernatural. #audiowalk

I haven‘t been making much progress on audiobooks lately, but I thought a short listen might be good change of pace for today. I listened to this first Padington book while I worked on a few things this morning and took the dogs (my sister‘s & my own) for a walk. It was a wonderfully entertaining and heartwarming story.

Daisey @rubyslippersreads @TheBookHippie A marmalade sandwich would have been perfect, but alas, all I had along were puppy training treats! 2d

Susan is annoying me. Mainly because she blames herself for everything— even things that clearly aren‘t her fault, like a grandparent‘s heart attack. Maybe I find it so annoying because I often do that and reading about someone doing it makes me see how ridiculous it is. Got a walk in before the rain. #audiowalk

The main character in this book, Susan, is named after the little girl in Miracle on 34th Street. Her family loves Christmas; her grandparents play Mr. & Mrs. Claus every year. Susan owns a bookstore called Sleigh by the Bay. Since I‘m listening to it, I didn‘t see the spelling and assumed it was a mystery bookshop called Slay by the Bay until she started talking about how the logo looked like a sleigh. #audiowalk Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃

I didn‘t think I‘d finish this today, but I did. I have yet to be disappointed in an Anthony Horowitz novel, and this book was no exception. There were twists and turns both in the Alex Pünd story and in the Susan Ryeland story. #audiowalk

We took a drive to the beach today and listened some more to The Kind Worth Killing. We‘re about halfway through, and it took a twist we were not expecting at all. Listened to Moonflower Murders on my walk; I still have almost 4 hours left! #audiowalk. It‘s been two years since a hurricane destroyed that boardwalk in the pic above, and it hasn‘t been fixed yet. Only part of that trail is walkable. 😞

It wasn‘t anywhere near as cold as it was yesterday — it was 54°, which isn‘t even that cold — but, for some reason, I was feeling it in my bones, so I only did a short walk. This is part of Mobile‘s Garden District that I walked in while waiting to pick up my daughter. #audiowalk

I definitely had to wear sweatpants and a sweatshirt on my walk today (although I did roll up the sleeves 😊). I‘m starting to mix up some of the characters in this book with ones from Magpie Murders, but I don‘t think that‘s Horowitz‘s fault. I started watching Magpie Murders last night, so I think the characters crossed over a bit in my mind. #audiowalk

I feel as if this book is much longer than Magpie Murders; I‘ve still got 11 hours left, and I‘ve already listened to 6. Not that I‘m bored — I‘m not at all. It just feels longer. A little chillier today than it has been. I almost needed a sweater. #audiowalk

While I liked this book, there really wasn‘t enough world building. I wanted to know why this alternative USA was constantly at war and with whom. How did gender roles get so restricted that people who didn‘t fit them could be executed? We went to the beach, so The Kind Worth Killing was our road trip book, and I continued with Moonflower Murders on my walk. #audiowalk

BookDragonNotWorm I loved The Kind Worth Killing! Can't wait to see what you think of it! 2w
KathyWheeler @BookDragonNotWorm The male narrator is a little weird in a way I can‘t put my finger on; it may even be just me. But so far, I like it. 2w
