A surprisingly raw book. I have not watched the movie but from what I read that has more romance than the book portrayed.

Picked this book up because of #bookspin

I finished 1 book of of my Jan. TBR list.
I should read The Proposal or Grey as they are my #bookspin and #doublespin books, but The Pinks is my Jan. #LMPBC book, so it will take priority.
I was really hoping for a low key weekend so I could finish more reading, but my parents showed up on Friday night and just left this morning. Now I have grading and lesson plans as well as #BibleBuddyRead to catch up on.

I‘ve never made a #bookspin bingo, posting my card anyway .Horace 65-8 BCE proves humans have always struggled with living in the moment & being satisfied with what you have. conquering, accumulating, & all can leave you little time for enjoyment.Do you love travel , or are you trying to run away from yourself? No matter where you go, there you are.Included in the book,verses in Latin & of course the English translation.

#BookReport #WeeklyForecast combo

All of my finished reads where picks.

It will probably take me most of this week to finish my reread of Salem‘s Lot on audio.
I just started Dangerous Women, my #bookspin , today and it seems to be a fast read. LCR is my #doublespin and is up next. I‘m not sure if I will get another audiobook started before the end of the week.
I‘m going to give The Lacuna a try for #authoramonth .

Cinfhen I liked this one - tons of interesting history 23h
Cinfhen I need to try this one again / did u do audio or print?? 23h
Bookzombie @Cinfhen I like history so I‘m hoping I will like The Lacuna. I did audio for The Five. I had it in print from the library, but never really needed it. 23h
Cinfhen Good to know!, I have audio & print but neither was working for me. Truthfully when I tried to read/ listen it was June 2020 and we were in FULL lockdown. 22h
Bookzombie @Cinfhen I don‘t think I could have listened to it then. The womens‘ lives are fairly bleak. Also, the misogyny made me angry. I would pair this with a lighter read. 22h

This is the 2nd Christie book I've read. Though quite entertaining, there are other mystery series I've enjoyed more.

Librarybelle I love Agatha Christie, but have not read this one yet! 1d
Catsandbooks Well least it was entertaining! 1d
Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 23h

I‘ve been a fan of Critical Role for years now, and this book is basically like candy for me! The twins were spot-on in their portrayal, and I loved reading this pre-game adventure. #bookspin

Girl: 4.5 🌟 I have one small quibble about one scene that didn‘t ring true. See spoiler comment below
Snowflake: 4🌟
HTWIP: 5🌟 Will definitely be on my #NYWD list for next year. #Bookspin
H: perfectly portrays what happened when women lose out due circumstances beyond their control in 17th century London and need to survive. Really loved the characters 4🌟 #NYWD

Catching up on buddy reads today.

thewallflower0707 I‘m glad you liked H ☺️. I thought it was very refreshing to have, at the same time, a well-researched historical novel and a female character, who just made the best of her life and actually ended up happy and with friends 😍 1d
Kdgordon88 The scene where Big Momma goes on about hard work and never giving up on dreams to Adunni seemed out of placed. She did not for a minute care if Adunni had dreams. 1d
Cinfhen I think you‘re probably right, but it‘s nice to imagine/ believe that Big Momma might of had an once of compassion. She was a terrible bitter person 1d

RaeLovesToRead @Kdgordon88 @Cinfhen I think Daré was trying to make Big Momma a moral grey area - abused turns abuser, successful woman in a man's world - but the violence that she meted out made any attempts at redemption seem completely ridiculous and out of place. It might have worked better to tone down the abuse and give her some nicer qualities. Still, I gave it 5 stars because it was an incredibly absorbing book. 1d
megnews So glad to hear good things about HTWIP. I definitely want to read that one. 1d

I wasn‘t sure what to expect from this classic. I knew it wouldn‘t be the Disney story, but I was happy with it. Pinocchio got into lots of trouble because he only thought of himself and made bad decisions. Gradually though, he was taught how he should act and care for those he loved and who loved him, eventually granting him his biggest wish! #4 #BookSpin #7 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART2022 #ChildrensClassicRead2022 #JoyousJanuary #Wintercosy

TheBookHippie ♥️ I‘m so glad we all read this. It is so fascinating! 2d
Allylu I‘m glad I read it! I really liked it. 2d
Clwojick ❤️❤️❤️ 1d
TheAromaofBooks I just finished this one today, too!! I did feel like the Disney version had a more coherent plot, but I ended up really enjoying the original, even if the timeline confused the bejeebers out of me 😂 1d
Allylu LOL !! 😁 1d
