Murder on the Red River | Marcie R Rendon

Mehso-so

Read this for my book club that me and another woman started at the library. This was her pick. It‘s suppose to be a mystery book club and this was lacking in mystery. It wasn‘t bad but wasn‘t amazing. I do think I‘d read the second one. I just hope the book club does well I want it to last so badly.

Definitely enjoyed this a lot more than the first one. Several years since the initial introduction of Themis to the world, our team faces a new challenge when the creatures of these robots come to earth with their own robot.

candority I liked this one, but didn‘t like the third one... I‘m interested to see what you think of it! 3w
Schnoebs @candority with how the second book ended with them getting teleported to space, I‘m definitely hoping to get to it soon but I might have to wait till after the holidays sadly 😔 3w

I picked this up from the library because the illustration design was interesting and I thought the time period during the fur trade would be a nice pallet cleanse from what I've been reading. During the time of early exploration of America, a battle breaks out when a Frenchman takes over the Fort of an Englishman. This was definitely what the description said it was but by the end of it, I just looked at it and thought "is that it?"

Clade | James Badley

A good book that looks at: climate change, fertility issues, autism, grief and roles of technology. Clade takes the reader along as they follow the lives of a family over three generations into the future. Starting in the beginning of the 21st century, the possible future impacts of climate change are depicted in an very eerie and unsettling way.

I think with this book you read it more to reflect on yourself rather than actually reading it for the material. I listened to the audiobook version of this and found myself not always payinng attention to what was being said because I would listen to a section and then start thinking about how it related to me and my friend groups.

A Discovery of Witches | Deborah E. Harkness

I started the first book in the trilogy Saturday and just finished up today. Really enjoyed all the nerding out over scientific history that I wanted to keep going. Ended up picking the other two up at the book and about to start the next one.

@HOTPock3tt why didn‘t you tell me this was so good????

MellieAntoinette Love this series!! 1mo
HOTPock3tt @Schnoebs Girl! I LOVE this series!! 😍🙌🏽 but I feel like it‘s an acquired taste. It doesn‘t appeal to everyone unfortunately 😐 so I‘m always careful when I recommend it 😅but I freakin loved it! And the TV series too! 1mo
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt I definitely want to check out the show after I‘m done with the series!!!! I‘m enjoying all the references to major people in history and I know there‘s going to be so much more in book 2 (20 pages in) 1mo

HOTPock3tt @Schnoebs Omg book 2! Lots of nerding out to be done there! 😃 tag me so we can chat about it!! 🙃🤗 (edited) 1mo
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt oh, I definitely plan on it lol 1mo
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt for now I can definitely say thank god for feminism and our right to get out of petticoats and corsets and into comfy pants!!! 1mo
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt I just finished the part with the wedding and then saying goodbye to Philippe. My heart. I can‘t. That was all too much emotion for not even getting to the halfway point of the book 😭😭😭 1mo
HOTPock3tt Omg I loved their wedding!! It was so romantic that it was set in Elizabethan times and I loved their wedding night!!! 😎 I thought it was sweet that he made her wait lol 🤣 and Philippe was SUCH a father to her. I loved his acceptance of her. He was truly a charismatic and dynamic character!! Wow I need to reread this book! There is so much more to come in the second part!!! 😁 @Schnoebs (edited) 1mo
HOTPock3tt I saw on goodreads that you‘re on the third book now! Second book spoilers ===> Omg how much did you love Diana learning about her powers with that coven in Elizabethan England!! 😃and Corra her firedrake! Plus Queen Elizabeth herself was a pretty fun character with her tantrums as well as Diana‘s father with his time walking!! 🤗 the only thing I missed was “the house” in present day and how witchy and strange it is!!” And her aunts 😎 4w
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt The amount of times I cried over the father child relationships in this book were insane! I loved it so much! Gallowglass was definitely my favorite but Philippe was so amazing and thought so far ahead for how his actions will be taken in the future. I also loved everything about them starting their little family. I knew Diana learned so much there but I didn‘t realize the level until seeing it start to come up in book 3! 4w
HOTPock3tt Phillip REALLY adored her as his own daughter and took care of her!! It made me cry too how much he planned for her future and thought so far ahead to protect her. She was lucky to have TWO amazing fathers!!! And gallowglass‘ secret love for her was 🥰 one of my fave things about this series is how many layers each characters has!! Gallowglass and Philippe especially! And Diana became SUCH a powerful witch when she went into the past! LOVE!! ❤️ 4w
HOTPock3tt @Schnoebs Btw I‘m still not over how sexy their honeymoon was!!! 😍 Deb harkness writes sexy scenes so well, I wish she wrote more of them!! I know she doesn‘t want her books to be about that 🤣but STILL!! 😃 (edited) 4w
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt yes 🙌🙌🙌🙌 those scenes were 🔥🔥🔥 4w
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt omg, I just got to the part where Diana see‘s Gallowglass‘s tattoo!!!! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 my heart can‘t handle this. This is not ok 3w
HOTPock3tt It‘s totally not ok!!!! 😭😫it was SO sad yet brilliantly written! Especially with how he protected her and waited for her for like 500 years!! Not even with so much as a KISS in return! So sad yet so sweet that my little heart can‘t take it 😔 @Schnoebs 3w

Another good volume but again the bonus manga is really what makes it for me. The other bits just aren‘t as memorable for me as I would like. My favorite part though was seeing the friendship between Iku and Shibazaki. I think they compliment each other well and will be great to follow along even more as the series go on. Another bit I liked was the Valentine‘s Day chocolate situation that had Iku worries about Dojo not getting any chocolate

Following the story of a number of characters, we see what happens to the world when a virus starts killing people within 24-48 hours and spread no matter what efforts are put in place. At the same time, magic is fully reintroduced into the world with elves, fairies, witches, wizards and more coming into their own. Now in a world where billions have died, we see what happens when good and evil for both sides reshapes what was once the world.

Took the train and walking to the hospital to get some my flu shot and some other stuff done for work. Made some great progress on this audiobook 🎧 Now time for this yummy burrito bowl for my partial shift I picked up today.
