Cloaked in Red | Vivian Vande Velde

This one is a soft pick, a collection of 8 variations of Little Red Riding Hood. I reserved this one back in August so I could read it for September's #Fairytalereadingchallenge ( @Charityann ) but it just arrived on Tuesday!! These were all a bit ridiculous and my favorite part was probably the author's foreword explaining why the original story is also ridiculous haha

TheAromaofBooks Read this one at lunch yesterday for my #BirthdayBash & also so I could check off reading an entire book for #OminousOctober (Wolf Frenzy!!) @Littlewolf1 @Roary47

Skinwalkers | Tony Hillerman

A few reviews today... This one is the next Leaphorn & Chee book, and it was quite fun to have these two characters finally working together! Hillerman does a great job contrasting their detecting styles as well as using them to illustrate how even people from the same culture/similar backgrounds can grow up to have completely different perspectives about life. The mystery itself was also quite good - so far, this series is getting better with ⬇️

TheSpineView Excellant! 3mo

Oh my goodness, I am SO overwhelmed and touched by all the lovely birthday wishes and by everyone who took the time not just to read yesterday, but to think of me while you did! ❤️ Thank you to all of you for making my birthday so special!!! Yesterday was a really long work day for me but I honestly love my job and the weather was beautiful, so even though I didn't get a lot of reading in, I still had a lovely day. PLUS my husband got off early⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) enough to take me to supper!!!

This photo is actually from my picnic-lunch-in-the-back-of-my-delivery-truck last Friday because I forgot to take a picture yesterday, but it was a very similar meal 😂

Once again, thank you to everyone for reading along & for wishing me a happy birthday even if you didn't have time to read. Hopefully I don't miss any of you with this tag list!!!

State of Terror: A Novel | Louise Penny, Hillary Rodham Clinton, To Be To Be Confirmed Simon & Schuster
post image

This was an enjoyable mystery/thriller with all sorts of twists and turns. There were several times when the fact that it was written by Hillary Clinton with all her inside knowledge took me out of the story, but overall I enjoyed the ride. I LOVED the cameos from Three Pines.
@TheAromaofBooks #BirthdayBash and @Roary47 and @Littlewolf1 #RoaringWolf Wolf Frenzy prompt got me to try and read it all in 1 day. Didn‘t quite but I was done before sunup

TheSpineView 👍📖 3mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!!! Thank you for reading with me!!! 3mo
