There is still a lot of debate about these but I'm going to guess these as the December #botm picks and we'll see what happens. 😅

@Cinfhen @allthingskayla

Megabooks Hmmm!! 2w
Megabooks Excited to see if I‘ll like any of them. Thanks!! 2w

swishandflick Hopefully they don't use a spot for Red, White, and royal Blue! I absolutely loved it but it's been out since May 🤔 2w
stuck.in.the.stacks @swishandflick they did that with Eleanor though so I wonder if they might do some thing like that again. 2w
Cinfhen Good sleuthing and puzzle solving!!!!! I‘m surprised about Red/White as its “old” but it‘s certainly a book that belongs in their wheelhouse. I read an ARC of Dear Edward ( meh) but I‘m excited for Liz Moore. Thanks SO MUCH for tagging me!!! I‘m tagging @TorieStorieS since you guessed a few!!! 2w
TorieStorieS Thanks, @Cinfhen - I had fun guessing! And if these are the picks, I am also going with the Moore - and probably also 2w
Cinfhen I‘m worried in the end Wives will be over the top but it sounds so tempting!!!!! Ugh!!!! #BookNerdProblems @TorieStorieS 2w
TorieStorieS @Cinfhen I know!! But I NetGalley turned me down for it, so that makes me only want to read it more... I do have an ARC for 2w
The_Heeler_Booklife :/ Looks like a possible month to skip. I have an arc for The Wives and the others are meh. 2w
8little_paws Last December they did include a book that had been out a while, Severance. It was their "book we missed earlier this year" pick. 1w
8little_paws I'm not sure any of these speak to me. I might end up skipping. 1w

Little Faith | Nickolas Butler
post image

#BookReport for last week 1)Next Year in Havana was a well done audio book. Slow in a few spots but a good story and taught me so much about Cuban history. 3 1/2 🌟 2)Little Faith was so good. A story about a family and how loss can shake our faith. 4 🌟 3) Moloka‘i. I loved this book about the Leper colony on this Hawaiian island. 4 🌟 The books pictured are this week‘s #WeeklyForecast

@Cinfhen Shotgun Lovesongs in now on my tbr. 😀

Cinfhen I loved shotgun lovesongs 🎶💕👍🏽 Hope you love it too!! I suggested it to @BarbaraBB but she was only meh over it 😔 2w
Cinfhen Are you doing the #LilliRead?? Im not sure how I feel about this book?? It‘s a little uneven for me 2w
Kdgordon88 @Cinfhen I haven‘t started yet. I will as soon as I get off Litsy. 😁 I will let you know when I‘ve got the first section read. (edited) 2w

BarbaraBB @Cinfhen No, not meh, I did like it, but my expectations were too high I think! I hope you will enjoy it, @Kdgordon88 ! (edited) 2w
Kdgordon88 @cinfhen #LilliRead. I have finished our first section and it is just meh so far. It is a flat narrative not evoking much emotion, but that could just be me. I will probably continue on at least through our next section. (edited) 2w
Cinfhen I haven‘t started the new section of #LilliRead but I hope to later today. If it doesn‘t grab me I may put it aside. I‘ve got my eyes on other books!!!!! #BookNerdProblems 2w

The Night Olivia Fell | Christina McDonald
post image

After her teenage daughter Olivia falls from a bridge and ends up brain-dead, Abigail is desperate to understand what happened. Overall a solid, enjoyable mystery, but I did have a couple of small issues with it. The medical scene at the end was not realistic, which pulled me out of the story, and comments like “skin toned folders” just don‘t belong in books in 2019. #oliviabuddyread

Cinfhen This book is in a box , on a ship bound to me..... (edited) 1mo
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen Are you trying to hypnotize me into a swap? 😂 1mo
Cinfhen Hahahaha 🤣😂🤣😂🤣🤣LOL !!!!! No, I literally sent a box of books via boat to Israel back in August and this book is one of the 20 1mo

Cinfhen I‘m gong to be laughing all day 1mo
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen Oh now that‘s funny! Oops. 😬 Sucks about your books though. Waiting for books is agony! 1mo
Cinfhen I was told up to 8 weeks but now the shipping company is telling us to expect the boxes mid November 😫 1mo
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen That‘s insane. Next time, bring an empty suitcase that you can bring back filled with books and avoid this crap! 1mo
Cinfhen Well.... we arrived with 4 pieces of luggage we left with 7 and we were only allowed one each, so shipping boxes seemed like a good solution, since those are priced by cubic meters not weight. As it was we had to pay for 4 extra bags 🙄 #BookNerdProblems 1mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I loved this surprise of a novella. The story pans around a family during a big day in the life of their granddaughter and tells how they all came to be where they are. The writing was gorgeous and built to something small but significant.

ManyWordsLater I‘m reading this now! SO GOOD! 1mo
thebluestocking @ManyWordsLater Right? Love the writing. 💙 1mo
BarbaraBB Stacking! Just read @cinfhen ‘s review too. Equally enthusiastic! 1mo

thebluestocking @Cinfhen I loved your review as well. Her writing is spectacular and compact. You‘re right; every word is part of a bigger picture. 💙 3w
thebluestocking @BarbaraBB I really hope you enjoy it. And I hope it catches the attention of the ToB selectors. 💙 3w
Cinfhen Oh yes!!!! Definitely a contender for #ToB #ReadARooster 3w

Thank you so much @BarbaraBB for this wonderful book. Once I started reading the story of young Hattie & her twins I couldn‘t put the book down. Each chapter focused on one of Hattie‘s 11 children as the years move from 1925 - 1980. A remarkable story but still lots of unanswered questions #BookClubWorthy

BarbaraBB I am happy you liked it! Thinking of some other books to share with you! 1mo
Cinfhen You‘re so sweet @BarbaraBB but I still have a few books you‘ve gifted me that I haven‘t gotten to yet 🙈 1mo
BarbaraBB Same here 🙈😘 1mo
Cinfhen Hahahahaha @BarbaraBB #BookNerdProblems ♥️😘 1mo

I‘m meant to be on a #BookBuyingBan until December 1 BUT this is a book I started from the library and didn‘t have time to finish PLUS it‘s really a bday gift for a special Litten 🎁💝So if your name starts with a T and ends with an H and you live in Liverpool don‘t buy this book 😜and I hope you‘re cool with me reading the last 150 pages 😘

Cinfhen @TrishB if you ALREADY own this one and someone else buys it for you please let me know 😊There‘s always a chance for that happening 😘 1mo
erzascarletbookgasm I love this cover, different from the one I usually see. True, Cindy 🙃 And I was just thinking whether I should inform @TrishB to STAY AWAY from her TBR wish list till bday is over! 😊 (edited) 1mo
TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm I have also been warned at home! I literally haven‘t brought a book for weeks....picking up my Philip Pullman one later as I had that preordered. But I‘m being good....-and I don‘t have this one either 😁 1mo

TrishB Read away 😘 1mo
jenniferw88 Adding my warning too @TrishB ! STAY AWAY from your tbr Trish 🤣🤣🤣 Quick q: do food goodies need to be vegan? 1mo
TrishB @jenniferw88 😂 getting excited now! Just vege is fine- doesn‘t have to be vegan. 😘 1mo
Cinfhen I think it might be time to update that TBR @TrishB 🤣 1mo
SamAnne I had to return my library book and ended up buying it! 1mo
Cinfhen This book is SO GOOD @SamAnne totally worth buying ❤️ 1mo
ephemeralwaltz Just bought this today! Gonna start right away. 1mo
Cinfhen I have a feeling you‘re gonna love it @ephemeralwaltz 😉🤞🏼 1mo
Suet624 Such a good story. It keeps growing on you after you finish it. 1mo
Mdargusch 😂🤣 1mo
Reviewsbylola December 1 😱😱 1mo
Cinfhen Yes!!!! December 1. It went into effect September 1 and I‘m having a HARD TIME. Of course my monthly subscriptions don‘t count nor do #KindleDailyDeals or birthday gifts for others 😉 @Reviewsbylola @Mdargusch 1mo
Mdargusch I‘m so proud of myself because I‘m plowing through the books I own! I decided not to do anymore challenges and just read what I want from my shelves and it has helped me cut out my book buying dramatically! But then there‘s those pesky book club books. 🤣 1mo
Cinfhen There is something nice about reading books you own @Mdargusch !!! I‘ve discovered a few gems on my shelf!!!! 1mo

You know you might have a problem when Hubby is watching TV & you only look up from your book when you spot the actor holding a book. #booknerdproblems #bookontv

Billypar I had a similar thing happen to me recently. My fiancee is watching a show in the other room, and I hear it spoil the ending of a book I'm currently reading (!) She was so apologetic, but I just thought it was funny 😁 2mo
Sharpeipup @billypar that‘s funny. 2mo

The app telling me my next hold will not be available before the end of November is where my #BooknerdProblems begin.

Because: Look, what I could download today because it was available to me.

Yes, I‘m happy because I waited quite long for this one to be my turn. But I also feel a bit rushed 😶 because I now need to get two and a half audiobooks done in a little more than two weeks.
