Hello everyone sorry for the radio silence I've just got home tonight. 🍸
I had a great Christmas I spent it with some extended family last minute so I wasn't alone.
We had a great laugh and lots of food and pudding 🥰
I am so grateful to you all for all the cards and presents. You made me feel so loved 😘 Thank-you ❤ #litsycardswap

I started this for #WinterGames2020, but I didn't get it finished. It's a long one. I got almost 7 hours (which I will count) into it and still wasn't half way done. This will have to be a Library Loan for this month's #bookspinbingo.

So I'm happy to report that while I read this with not having read anything else in the series I was able to follow along. Though I'm certain there were some spoilers in there for some earlier books in the series. #WinterGames2020 #readnosedreindeer #littenlisten #bookspinbingo #bookmasbingo #festiveflicks #averymerrybingo #nicnaxbookclubbingo #CrushTheRush #ReadYourWay #ChristmasSpirit #WinterSolstice #shutdownreadathon

I meant to post this one last night, but I fell asleep before I got around to it. This was a great end to 2020. I loved all 3 of these books. This was second only to My Lady Jane by a smidge. I loved the characters, loved the story. The authors have really hit on a good little formula for these books.

Book 37/40 for #crushtherush and #readyourway. I didn't hit my goal for December, but I got close.

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 2y

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I loved the first book. I should read the others this year... along with 1700 others!🤣 2y
Traci1 @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick the more I think about it, the more I think maybe I loved this one the most of the three. Just saying. 😁 2y

True confessions: I read this book about Brazil a day early. I was anxious to get a start on #foodandlit, it was short and I needed an audiobook for crafting time. This is a very very broad overview of the political history of Brazil—some very similar to the USA (ie, slavery), and dissimilar (ie, the end of slavery without a civil war—but probably a too slow demise of the evil institution for the slaves themselves; the rise of dictators). ⬇️

Texreader I‘d like to find a similar book with more about the culture, or cultural history, of Brazil. I‘ll keep looking. @Butterfinger #crushtherush #readyourway #wintergames #merryreaders #dashingdecember #ChristmasSpirit #shutdownreadathon @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @TheSpineView @Clwojick @andrew65 (edited) 2y
Butterfinger I really like the Cultures Around the World books I've been reading for Europe. 130 page reference books with the photos. I learned how to read with my daddy's encyclopedias. I think it was @ChasingOm who found travel books for kindle unlimited. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I think I'll be casually joining in on #foodandlit this year. If I can find something of interest to read and/or cook for each country, I'll be playing along. 2y

Butterfinger Great to have you @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Casual sounds good to me. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Thanks @Butterfinger I'm a picky eater & lackluster cook, so the food might be trickier than finding a book or two. 😁 2y
Butterfinger @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I will tag you on some posts. @Texreader started a pinterest board that may help. 2y

Main character is in the Black Friday shopping crowd. When I read about a group of people in a book, I still do a double take wondering why they aren‘t masked or social distancing. Anyone else still feeling that way?

Butterfinger I find myself visualizing my characters WITH masks. I was reading Monte Cristo last night and the Count said 'so low he couldn't hear what was said,' and I thought it's because of the mask. Instantly, I thought - you crazy thing it's the Count, not Zorro. 2y

Lcsmcat I don‘t do it with books, but visual images from the “before time” that have crowds stress me out. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick It doesn't bother me. I hope we'll get to a period where we keep a little distance but our fellow humans aren't germy pollutants. 2y
Andrew65 Yes has same effect on me now! 2y

Domestic thrillers aren't my favorite thing, but every now and then I'll pick one up. This one was pretty much what I expected. The characters were vile, and I was kind of rooting for them, especially Emmy, to get a comeuppance. Still, as much as I disliked almost everyone in the book, I did find it hard to put down (much like not being able to turn away from a train wreck). If you like these sorts of books, you'll probably enjoy this one.

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I missed this one somehow! My apologies. I like a thriller, but not too often, though I have lots. I might need to seek out a thriller where I'm actually cheering for the killer. 😂 2y
