What a terribly beautiful book. It deserved the Pulitzer. I listened on audio and the notes of Claire de Lune are haunting. I have always loved it. I walked down the aisle to it at our wedding. I also love puzzles and my father did, too. The whole book was a puzzle. Fantastic! Just feel so bad for them all! #60 #BookSpin #DS20 #AlmostAChunker #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #BOOKED2022 #Buzzwordathon #20in4 #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #Pantone

What a delightful listen this was! Being of a certain age although I don‘t consider myself THAT old, I commiserated with Veronica as I strive to make my days count for something. She‘s curmudgeonly but wonderful. You will love her - and her penguins! #15 #BookSpin #15 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #SERIES2022 #Buzzwordathon #READYOURSHELF #sharreadathon #KicktheSlump #20in4 #Pantone2022 Cascade #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #WintersRespite

I finished it!!! Finally! This is definitely #AlmostAChunkster 640 pages of the most dysfunctional family ever. They were always plotting against each other and they were full of themselves. Anyway I‘m done with it and glad of it. #14 #BookSpin #9 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #AClassicAMonth #sharreadathon #KicktheSlump #20in4 #Pantone2022 Daffodil #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #WintersRespite #TheRoyalReadathon

I had to read this book in the Once Upon A Con series before I read Bookish and The Beast. I‘m glad I did. They were cleverly tied together, and I‘m sure Bookish… will be, too. Truly entertaining for this Fangirl, with all its name dropping. I had a blast reading it and can‘t wait to read the next one! #7 #BookSpinBingo #25 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART2022 #SERIES2022 #20in4 #Pantone2022ColoutChallenge SuperSonic #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #Wintercosy

I thought the story was very good. Puri inherited a cacao plantation from her father and an attempt was made on her life en route to Ecuador, then her husband was killed. To find the killer, Puri posed as her husband and told her siblings she died at sea. The results were interesting. #6 #BookSpinBingo #11 #BFC2022 #JUMPSTART2022 #ReadtheSpanishSpeakingWorld Ecuador #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Basil #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #Wintercosy

This is the first of Mildred D. Taylor‘s Logan Family series. I read Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry last year and I was so affected not only by the story, but by Ms. Taylor‘s words about it, that I decided to read the rest of the series. These stories have to be read, especially by folks like me. #BookspinBingo #1 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART #SERIES2022 #LiterALLyBOOKish #Pantone2022ColourChallenge #TidyBookshelfDiverseReading #Wintercosy
