The Perfect Mother | Caroline Mitchell

Pickpick

Pregnant, frightened, alone. Giving up her baby to the perfect couple seemed like a good idea, until she found herself in a new country, confined to a basement flat, and following a strict regime which left no room for contact with friends or family. Riveting storyline and page-turning tension left me wanting to read faster to see what happened. Top read! #NetGalley

#BookReport #Week3
Glad I waited until end of the day because I finished a 5th book!!! Plainsong was a #OneSittingRead and 5 HEARTFELT stars
Speak No Evil - contemporary fiction/ very good I already posted reviews on other 3 books, LOVED both #NF (both audio)
Three bails this week, annoyed because I wasted 2/5 loans from Hoopla. Gods is probably great but not on audio. The Holdout is an #ARC #NetGalley 👎🏼 Just started Like Dreamers, #NF 👍🏻

A little light-hearted historical romance up next, due out 12/31. It‘s a second in series so I hope I‘m not totally lost. 😳🤦🏻‍♀️🤣

Thanks to #NetGalley and @StMartinsPress !

-picture from 1 of my trips to the Louvre-This is hard to give feedback on, mainly because I am just not the right kind of reader for this book. This no doubt a thorough and well researched book, it was full of detail, too much detail for me, I got lost in all the facts fairly early on and it was a little overwhelming. I would recommend this for avid history and/or architecture fans. Thank you #netgalley for ARC to review, release in May 2020

Cinfhen Uh ohhhh...just got this ARC 😬 14h
Maude @Cinfhen , it wasn't a bad book, just very heavy on dates and military/political history. I'm horrible in those areas, I zone out 😊 14h
Cinfhen It sounds a little to dry for me too...I guess I‘m about to find out 14h

Parts of this British chick-lit novel were quite cute, the text and email dialogue was very well done and it sometimes nearly ventured into Pick territory but honestly, the plot didn‘t appeal to me and the primary characters were just ok. #NetGalley #arc

This little book is a quick read, enumerating the author's strategies for changing your living practices to be more climate-conservation oriented. He explains the terms which get bandied about but which might seem confusing (carbon offsets, for example). He makes an overwhelming topic of climate disaster into something comprehensible, and offers practical suggestions for how you can make meaningful change in your own practices. ARC from #netgalley

Just Watch Me: A Novel | Jeff Lindsay

Wowza!! Thanks, #NetGalley for the chance to check out Jeff Lindsay‘s newest anti-hero!! Riley Wolfe is charming- and a master of disguises and an expert thief! This book is just plain fun!! There are some echoing similarities with Dexter, but not in a bad way- honestly, I thoroughly enjoyed this from start to finish and absolutely cannot wait to see what he pulls off next!! I‘m excited to have a new series to follow!!

This is a good start to a new mystery series. I really liked the main character, Poppy, and her dog Bess, of course. I liked that Poppy had doubts about herself and her investigation, but was able to muster the confidence that she needed to move things forward. I will be keeping my eye out for the next book in this series.

Cinfhen I think I‘ll get to 150 this year! My goal was 118 and I‘m around 140. I don‘t really like to set a numbers goal but I like being sprinkled by confetti on GoodReads 😂❣️ 2d
Cinfhen 159 is awesomeness 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 2d
