Combined #BookReport and #WeeklyForecast :

I completed two books last week - Mr. Churchill‘s Secretary was a reread for my IRL book club, and I found I did not enjoy it as much the second time through as I did the first. 🤷🏻‍♀️

This week, I‘ll continue to make my way through #buddyread titles and knock off some titles from my to read list.

robinb I sometimes find that on rereads. 😩 22h
Librarybelle @robinb It at least led to a good discussion at book club! 22h
robinb @Librarybelle it‘s been ages since I read that one, but I don‘t think I was invested as I‘d hoped to be? I may go back and reread and try the next one to give it another chance. I think Bess Crawford has spoiled me for all other similar war heroine sleuths. 😂 21h

Librarybelle @robinb 😂 I‘ll probably read the second at some point, but I‘m not going to rush to grab it and start immediately. 20h
Roary47 Wow! I feel like I have a lot of buddy reads going on right now too. You look way more organized than my chaos. 12h
Librarybelle @Roary47 Thanks! I need something like this to remember all of them. 😂 11h

We‘re two weeks away from this month‘s #LiteraryCrew #BuddyRead discussion! I know some of us have found this to be not to be an easy read, and that‘s okay! Even if you‘re not quite into the book or had to put it down, feel free to join the discussion on the 30th.

Any thoughts to share so far?

mcctrish I‘m 65 pages in and after The Brothers Karamazov this is light 😆 but I am going slowly 6d
Librarybelle @mcctrish 😂 I love that comparison! 6d

BarbaraJean I‘ve found it slow going after the opening section—I just finished part 3 and feel like I‘m still waiting for the book to get going! I thought the back and forth of the timeline in part 2 was an interesting choice—it was a bit confusing. But I‘m finding Thomas a fascinating character! 5d
Librarybelle @BarbaraJean Thomas is a fascinating character - agreed! 5d
Mollyanna It took me a minute to get used to the writing style, but now that I am, I‘m enjoying it. 5d
PurpleyPumpkin I feel like reading the audiobook is helping. I‘m enjoying the writing but find this a bit of a heavy read. It‘s holding my interest though! 5d
Librarybelle @PurpleyPumpkin Yes - heavy reading indeed! Glad the audiobook is helping! 5d
Cuilin I think it has one of the best opening chapters ever. Brutal, but you can‘t stop reading. 5d
Jerdencon I‘m sort of trudging along with this one. About 1/2 way done and hoping to finish most of it before I go on vacation next week and the library takes my e book back! 5d
Librarybelle @Jerdencon Have fun on your vacation! 5d

Really enjoyed my reread. The audio is fantastic. The jingle for the footnotes worked really well, the story held up and I am looking forward to the discussion next month.

What # are we using for this read? Is there an easy way to tag everyone?

I rather enjoyed this tale of archeological times in the late 1800's. The characters grew and I loved the leading lady who told the story. This was a great read for #BakerStreetIrregulars #BuddyRead. Our discussion at the end of the month should be interesting. @StayCurious @CatLass007 One Bingo Spot for #ISpyBingoApril #ReadAway24 @Clwojick @TheAromaofBooks @Andrew65 @DieAReader @GHABI4ROSES

CatLass007 I‘m glad you enjoyed it! 2w
DieAReader 🥳Great! 2w
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I finished this one today as well. My understanding is originally this was going to be a standalone, but Peters went on to write another 19 books about these characters!! I read this whole series a few years ago and loved it. 2w

Just a friendly reminder that we are setting off on the second round around the #Discworld today with #Sourcery.

Looking forward to our discussion next month!

PS: this book might work for some of the #52bookclub24 bonus prompts for April - I'm definitely using it for "desert you"

BookmarkTavern Yay! I‘m so excited! (edited) 2w
TheSpineView @julesG That happens some times. 2w
Deblovestoread Sometimes it doesn‘t want to play nice. I‘m very excited as a first time reader of these books. 💜🧙💜 2w
BookWrym I have hit the audiobook already and the narration is great. Read by Colin Morgan, Bill Nighy & Peter Serafinowicz. The footnotes have their own little jingle and I am loving it. Having previously read the paperbacks I am finding audio a delightful way to revisit. Plans for this read along will be whatever format I can my hands on. 2w
julesG @BookWrym Same here. I previously listened to the Nigel Planer narration, but have the new one queued up for this round. 2w
TheAromaofBooks Yay!! This will be my first time reading a Pratchett book. I'm so interested to try out his writing!! 2w
willaful D'oh! I thought the discussion was this month and just finished it. I hope I remember something to discuss. 😂 2w
julesG @willaful I'm sure you will. 😂 2w
rretzler @willaful I finished it on the date we were to have started! I had totally forgotten what quick and easy reads these were. 1w
rretzler @BookWrym Also loving that footnote jingle! I wish ALL audiobooks had that! 1w

Went through the drive-thru this morning g so I could get my 90 Bo us stars. Then I stopped at the nearby Brug bakery to finally try one of their spring special Lilikoi Hawaiian Monk Seals (a roll with lilikoi cream inside) to go with my latte & found they are leaving them on the menu, which makes me happy as they are cute & tasty. 😋

Starting this book for #Naturalitsy #buddyread Looking forward to learning more about bears.🐻🤎

“We have entered the bears' home without permission and selfishly laid claim to what we found there. In the words of Wee Bear, 'someone' s been lying in my bed, ' and, well, here we are.“

So true, and such a good comparison to make!
