Gimli is happy to report that this was a pretty good book. The tension was compelling, the characters were flawed but interesting, and the ending was satisfying. Marking this off my #BOTMbacklog and using it for #Sweden in the #ReadingEurope2020 challenge. @Librarybelle @BarbaraTheBibliophage

Next up! Gilbert is making biscuits on my belly; and if you look really close behind him you can catch a glimpse of Gimli as he takes a break from attacking my feet. The book is my June 2019 #BOTM, which has been collecting dust. I'm ready to get started and knock one off my #BOTMbacklog. It will also count as Sweden for #ReadingEurope2020. @BarbaraBB @Librarybelle

Getting a late start to stating and getting started on my #readinggoals. This beautiful journal I received in one of my #onceuponabookclub boxes will serve to keep me organized as I work on several challenges this year. Ultimately, I aim to fulfill as many prompts as possible with books I already own. I need some sort of motivation to plow through my #TBR, and my #bookbudget needs to be trimmed. 📚💰 2020 challenges listed in comments.

Cinfhen I agree; using your TBR for challenges is another sort of challenge 😉🤪🎊 3w
BarbaraBB Clever to use your TBR for the challenges. I try too as well but always fail 😂 3w
Crazeedi Great goals, I'm going to try to whittle down my tbr shelves this year, one of my goals is to downsize all the "stuff" in my house 3w

I had high hopes for this thriller / fiction true crimeish novel, but it really felt very lackluster. The story was compelling and I wanted to know the truth and how it would end, but I had to force myself there. There wasn‘t much action or intrigue. This was more boring than it should have been. Very middle of the road. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Things You Save in a Fire | Katherine Center

I am never one to love a contemporary feel good love story. I read Center‘s debut novel just a few weeks ago and couldn‘t get enough. I am never drawn to these types of stories but Center creates such dynamic loveable characters that I‘m completely drawn in. The plot is predictable but her writing is so great I don‘t even care! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

JanuarieTimewalker13 Ok, this is good to know, bc I picked that book up and got sidetracked. I‘ll give it another go, eventually. 1mo

Running right along through my #botm backlog! This one kept me turning the pages and I read it all in one sitting. I totally did not see the ending coming, but as I always feel with thrillers, it was super rushed and didn‘t leave me with a tangible feeling once I turned the last page. The narrative was compelling and I loved every second of it, but something was missing. Therefore, a four star read for me! #botmbacklog

Tiffiney I couldn‘t have said it better. This review pretty much nails it on the head! 2mo

This is a list of all the #botm books I've ordered and haven't read! Its absurd! So I've created a challenge for myself in 2020 I'm calling the #BOTMBacklog challenge. I'm simply going to try to get through as many of these books as possible in the new year! If anyone else has a big, unread stack of botm books and wants to join, please feel free! 📚😬

Librarybelle Oh! Maybe I will! I too have an amazingly large backlog of BOTM books. Sadly, that doesn‘t stop me from buying more... 2mo
Rissa1 I also have a crazy backlog of BOTM . I cannot stop myself. 2mo
IamIamIam Good luck!!! 2mo

bridge12 I feel this, I actually quit BOTM because it got so bad 2mo
Redwritinghood I‘ve been thinking that I need to do the same thing next year. I also have a huge backlog of BOTM books, so I‘ll definitely be joining you. 2mo
sprainedbrain I‘m actually planning to do this next year, too! I have 35 BOTM books on my shelves (ugh) and one of my reading goals for #ReadInTheNewYear swap is to read at least one of them per month. Hopefully more, since heaven knows I will be adding more to it every month. 🤣 2mo
laurenslibrary @Librarybelle @Rissa1 I know.. I need to pause my subscription but everytime I do they end up having something I want the following month! 😫 2mo
laurenslibrary @IamIamIam Thank you! 2mo
laurenslibrary @bridge12 I need to quit, but I have an addiction 😫 2mo
laurenslibrary @Redwritinghood Yay! Good luck to you! 2mo
laurenslibrary @sprainedbrain I have over 35, so don't feel bad. Every month I say I'm only going to order 1 book tops, but somehow 2 or 3 always end up in my order.. 😬 2mo
sprainedbrain @LaurensLibrary isn‘t it weird how that works? 😂 2mo
Callemarie Girl I'm right there with ya 2mo
cherinium I'll jump in on that! At the moment, I've got about 25 on that list. I have actually been making a point to get through some of them over the last couple months. I also went through all of my books the other day to see which ones would fit into other challenges I'm planning on doing. 6 of my BOTM TBR fit the bill! #booked2020 #readingeurope2020 #readwithmrbook & now #botmbacklog 2mo
