I recommend this book so much at my library that I had to buy extra copies to keep it on the shelf! It's an epic story set in medieval like times. The book starts the series with 15 year old Will just learning what being a ranger is all about.

Daisey I‘ve heard good things about this book but never read it. May have to move it up the TBR. 1w

Bookwormjillk Happy Friday! I love reading Stephen King on the beach. 2w
Librarybelle Happy Friday! I just finished a book that would be a good beach read: 2w
mcctrish I have three summer read favourites - something huge that I can finally read cuz I have the time ( A Suitable Boy, A Little Life have been past reads) something light ( Elin Hildebrand, Jenny Colgan) and something themed to wherever we might be traveling to ( this summer we are going to Scotland for the first time and I‘ve got Julie Shackman and Jane Bettany loaded on my kindle) and I‘m looking for suggestions beyond those light reads 2w
TheBookHippie I always reread 🤣🫣🤪 2w
ElizaMarie I don't have a summer read. I am looking forward to other's comments because of course I want to add to my TBR (ha! I love Litsy for this reason - among others). 2w
dabbe A book I like to revisit every summer because it leads me to try yet another classic is BEOWULF ON THE BEACH by Jack Murnighan. It gives a what-to-read/what-to-skip for 50 classics. I find it helpful and humorous. 🤩 2w
AllDebooks @Bookwormjillk lol, certainly a fast paced read guaranteed 🤣 2w
AllDebooks @mcctrish Ooh Scotland is beautiful 😍 I love a good chunkster on hols x 2w
AllDebooks @TheBookHippie I have never read Judy Blume 🫣 2w
AllDebooks @dabbe lol, that looks great 🤣 2w
AllDebooks I really enjoyed Taylor Jenkins Reid last year. I usually choose fast-paced thrillers as a holiday read. 📚 I always take my Kindle too, for backup. 😅 2w
TheBookHippie @AllDebooks 😳😳😳😳 2w
AllDebooks @TheBookHippie Sorry, don't hate me. Just never gotten around to her books 🫣😅 2w
TheBookHippie @AllDebooks 🙂🙃 her books saved my life I‘m a bit partial to her. 2w
AllDebooks @TheBookHippie ❤️glad you could find comfort. X I will definitely read 2w
Catsandbooks Any romance or something light and joyful. Anything by Tessa Bailey 🩷 2w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I don‘t have a specific book. Mass market paperbacks are something I associate with going outside to read. I used to take horror anthologies with me to read to my cousins around summer bonfires when we went to visit. 2w
tdrosebud I don't have anything specific that I read, but for me, a good summer read is one that is easy to carry with me wherever and is an easy read. 2w

I qualified for a nerve ablation in my back. If it works, it could relieve some of my pain for 6-9 months.

Sace Doc Baker!!! 2mo
Bookwormjillk 🤣🤣🤣🤣 this pic. Does Danny think Rebecca was only in love with her? So many questions. 2mo
julieclair I felt so very sorry for Ben. And yes, I do think Baker is a doctor and she really was pregnant. 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig I couldn't help myself I binged to the end. 2mo
BarkingMadRead @Crinoline_Laphroaig I did that days ago 🤣🤣🤣 2mo
willaful I was really struck by the narrator's use of “sensual“ to describe Jack, in a completely negative way. Her fastidiousness seems pathological. A murderer is fine, as long as he's refined. (edited) 2mo
Aimeesue Sometimes I just want to slap Jack. Or punch him in the neck. Grrrrr. Poor Ben. He did just what Rebecca wanted, though, didn‘t he? (edited) 2mo
Clare-Dragonfly Poor Ben! My Danny in the cottage theory is definitely busted 😂 I appreciate the irony that it‘s Rebecca‘s own threat that is making it difficult for Favell to prove her murder. (edited) 2mo
Clare-Dragonfly @julieclair Agreed. Most likely pregnant with Jack‘s child, or at least she believed it was his. 2mo
Roary47 @Crinoline_Laphroaig @dabbe @BarkingMadRead Same! I couldn‘t handle it. 🤣 2mo
julieclair @Roary47 @dabbe @BarkingMadRead @Crinoline_Laphroaig Oooohhhh…. y‘all have given me the go-ahead to speed on through to the end! 😃 2mo
ElizaMarie Danny saying her only fear is growing old —- that helps the “suicide” story. 2mo

#readingschedule @Cuilin

Hi, Sherlockians~
Based on @Cuilin's survey, most of you wanted to read a short story a week. These next 12 stories are bound in the tagged book, or you can read them separately--however you wish! Below is our reading schedule. A 2-week slot exists due to Mother's Day. Click below for a link to create your own copy of the pic above: https://bit.ly/3SVQNuh

dabbe @Liz_M Thank you! ❤️💜🩷 4mo
SpellboundReader @dabbe - If it's okay, I'll join in and try to keep up with the schedule. I've read some stories by Sir Doyle in the past, in no particular order but don't remember them well. Last night I watched Mr. Holmes, a fanfiction movie based on Mitch Cullin's 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind. Loved the movie. Saw this post this morning. 🙂 4mo

#TLT @dabbe

Thanks for the tag @TheSpineView

1. Even though I'm right-handed, I can only hold a phone in my left hand when speaking to someone.

2. I have an ornate hierarchy of coffee mugs that govern which I'll choose in any given situation.

3. I refuse to watch movies based on books unless I've read the book first.

TheSpineView You're welcome! Agree with you on #3. The book MUST be read first. 5mo
dabbe #1: #ditto! I find that I do pretty much everything with my left hand except write. 🤩
#2: I'm a mood reader; you're a mood coffee drinker! 😂
#3: YES! 🤩
The_Penniless_Author @dabbe I'm pretty sure it developed from me holding the phone with my left hand so I could scribble down notes with my right hand when I was a kid. Am I right in guessing that yours is because you were forced to write right-handed in school? 5mo

Deblovestoread Yes to the mug to fit the mood. I will rearrange or reach to the back for the mug that is right for the day 🤷🏻‍♀️ 5mo
dabbe @The_Penniless_Author I first started writing with both hands; then, I was “encouraged“ to choose the right one. I never even asked why as a kid, nor do I remember the teacher giving me a reason. I was a follower as a kid and just did what I was told. Not so much anymore. 😃 5mo
The_Penniless_Author @dabbe It's weird that not that long ago it was a commonly held belief that writing left-handed was "defective" somehow. It still is in a lot of places. My wife was forced to write right-handed growing up in Bulgaria, and she was born in 1984! 5mo
The_Penniless_Author @Deblovestoread I own way too many mugs. 😂 It was my go-to souvenir for years. 5mo
dabbe @The_Penniless_Author Wow! I think in some places it was even seen as evil. The right hand being the “right“ way to write. #funwithhomophonestoo 5mo
Vansa Same for me with the coffee mugs and the books to movies adaptations! I relaxed that for The Expanse tv show though, and don't regret it! 5mo
