I have no s(h)elf control - when @Oryx read this book at the #readingretreat I was immediately fascinated by the synopsis (even though I still don‘t like the cover) so I ordered it as soon as we got home. 🙈😊

Hooked_on_books I have to agree on the cover, but sometimes you just NEED that book! 2mo

Books I bought on holiday/#ReadingRetreat

A few will be Christmas presents. Two are for my "books I really really liked" shelf. A book from the travel section. And yes, there's a memoir. I know, @Cinfhen, I don't read memoirs. Or at least I didn't until this November.


squirrelbrain No wonder the plane and train were delayed - they were both too heavy! 2mo
julesG @squirrelbrain It might have been the 400 teabags. 😁 2mo
Caroline2 Oh good haul! 😯 2mo

This was my prize from our Blind Date With A Book swap at the Gladstone‘s #readingretreat this weekend and I had to post as Catherine @CGainor3 was so creative with her clues! (Despite nearly setting fire to her room in the process!) 🔥😯

I‘m going to use this book for the make your own prompt clue for #booked2022, my prompt being #bookgiftedinaswap.

Thanks so much Catherine; I‘m really looking forward to it! 😘

TrishB It was amazing! 2mo

A joint #bookreport and #weeklyforecast this week; completely forgot yesterday..(too busy reading! 🤣)

Top row: books I read before the #readingretreat. All were great apart from Tides, which was just OK.
Middle row: books I read on the retreat. Didn‘t like the Whitehead but the others were fab. Still to review Wolves.
Bottom row: suffering from major retreat hangover now so Stolen Ones will be a great palate cleanser ⬇️

squirrelbrain Listened to most of this one on the way home, only half an hour to go. It‘s on the #ToB longlist. 2mo
Cathythoughts These all look interesting! I‘ve ordered Wolves.. so looking forward to it & to your review 2mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Been wanting to read The Woman in the Purple Skirt! Looking forward to reading your thoughts! 2mo
