A quiet morning, good coffee and Amazon gift cards equals a lovely start to my day. Thanks to the hosts of #Booked2021 and my son for today‘s book shopping. So excited to have all these books added to my Kindle.

Soubhiville I just preordered To Paradise too! I‘m looking forward to it, not sure I‘ll get to it before February though… 2w

AmyG By an odd stroke of luck I have the dentist on Tuesday which is the release day of To Paradise. I‘ll just stop in and get it as the book store is next door! The Seed Keeper is fabulous…as is The Magician and hour of the Witch. Great choices! (edited) 2w
ncsufoxes The Mountains Sing & The Seed Keeper were two of my favorite books last year. Such great stories 2w

2021 was my best reading year by far. I more than doubled my goal of reading 60 books and I didn't even include a few children's books or short stories in the final tally.

2021 was a rough reading year for me. Like many, I found it difficult to focus.

54 books out of my Goodreads goal of 80 - setting my goal for 80 again this year. 8/12 #Authoramonth & 16/24 #Booked2021. Doing both of these challenges in 2022 - they definitely pushed me to find new authors!

So, here's to a better 2022! 🥂

britt_brooke 54 is still fantastic! 2w
mom2bugnbee @britt_brooke Awww, thanks friend! It truly wasn't a good year for my focus, but I'm ready to get back to it! Already finished one on the car ride home yesterday! 😁 2w
britt_brooke @mom2bugnbee Yay!! Hope it was a good one. 2w

The first half is voodoo and sex and a zombie-like resurrection and a rapey butterfly. The second half is less manic and more philosophical than ridiculous but is still interesting. This would be an short choice for #FoodAndLit #Haiti this year if you're up for the challenge.

Not perfect, but I enjoyed the hell out of this. Perhaps because some of my more significant relationships started as friendships, I was rooting for opposites Poppy & Alex to hook up. We follow these unlikely best friends through their tumultuous "present" by exploring their relationship through various summer vacations of years past. A light & fun read, especially since I haven't really had any vacations in two years thanks to Covid.

Cinfhen I‘m looking forward to reading this book 📚 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage I picked this up with BOTM book of the year. Ended up giving it to our college-age grande to read while she‘s on break. She‘s so excited! 2w
