I finally mailed off my last two books for #Round14 of #LMPBC I enjoyed both groups so much #GroupO and #GroupC Thanks to all for all of the great new book selections! I read books I might not have picked up independently and that‘s the best part!! Here‘s a photo of my daughter and I on July 4th. We are on vacation which has made it hard to read as much as I like. But if there‘s any reason not to read, family vacation time is it!! Happy summer!!

BookBosomed1 So glad you participated! Also, lovely photo. :) 5mo
julieclair What a beautiful photo! Looks like you‘re having a great vacation. 😀 I have still not started The Murmur of Bees, my last book for Round 14 Group O. 😞 It got crowded out by July books. 🙃 But I‘m really looking forward to it, especially since it will have the whole group‘s comments! @sprainedbrain @BookBosomed1 5mo
Megabooks Great photo! 5mo
kspenmoll Lovely photo. Love your daughter‘s sunglasses! Hope you enjoyed or ate enjoying your vacation! 5mo

Since I didn‘t finish this title during my month with it I decided to get my own copy and… it. Is. Done. Whoo! That was crazy, but if you are in to true crime and haven‘t read it already, it is consider a classic of the genre for a reason! #lmpbc #groupt #round14

Maggie4483 It is definitely dense. I spent an entire day reading it and felt like I barely made a dent. 5mo
Patchshank Lol. I didn't get around to finishing it either. Things have been insane here 5mo
wisherwishinguponastar @Patchshank I was going to donate my copy since I was done. Do you want it? 5mo

A cursed planet, kept thriving only through the sacrifice of blood, & two factions mistrusting & hating each other. Can a prisoner and a queen mend the rift and heal the land?

I loved the fusion of sci fi & fantasy. The world building was interesting. But I‘m not a fan of the enemies to lovers trend, & I felt the ending was rushed with one of the characters finding a diary to explain everything we needed to know in the last little bit. 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

ozma.of.oz Lots of references to suicide throughout the book, and child murder in chapter 24 5mo

What if Sleeping Beauty had to be woken by a cursed historian and a runaway treasure hunting princess? Filore & Shane partner up to find treasure and break a 100 year curse.

An interesting take on a traditional fairytale. Info dump heavy in the first 1/2, but starts to pick up speed. I liked the friendship between our two main characters, & I appreciated that destiny & true love were separate from each other. But an unsatisfying ending.🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

ozma.of.oz @Bookwormjillk It‘s in the mail and should be there on Friday! ❤️ 6mo
Bookwormjillk @ozma.of.oz got it today! 6mo

Jerdencon @IndoorDame just wondering if you mailed my book yet this month - just wanted to make sure it wasn‘t lost somewhere 7mo
IndoorDame @Jerdencon I‘m actually mailing it today. I‘m SO sorry it‘s late. I was ill last month and kept hoping I‘d get to finish it before I sent it out, but it‘s not going to happen and I want the cycle to continue relatively unbroken, so hopefully it‘ll be at yours in a few days. 7mo
Jerdencon No worries - if you want to try to finish it - im a pretty quick reader as long as I have 5 days or so. I hope you are feeling better! 🤗 @IndoorDame (edited) 7mo
IndoorDame @Jerdencon thank you 🙏 that totally makes me feel better about being so late! But I‘m just going to send this one on and concentrate on reading this month‘s. I have so much to catch up on after being sick for so long. Luckily I am on the mend though! 7mo

@suvata I finally sent the book out yesterday. Hopefully the surprisingly quick deliveries at least some of us experienced in the last round will continue this time. I hope you enjoy it as much as @Jerdencon have. I‘m really looking to forward to reading The Personal Librarian next. It‘s been on my TBR for a while. 🤩 @IndoorDame #markuppostalswap #groupA #Round14

Jerdencon Your book was sent Tuesday morning so should be there soon hopefully! 7mo
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @Jerdencon I have a few packages on their way between today and early next week . Most of our mail gets sent to the post office, but finding packages on our doorstep is sometimes fun 🤩 7mo
suvata @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 Received the book today. Thanks! (edited) 7mo

I enjoyed reading this sweet story. The characters were colorful and charming and I enjoyed the story. While not the most complex plot line, it was just what I needed after reading some heavy literature. Respite after some dark literature is just what I needed! Thank you for sharing with me, @BookBosomed1 I really am glad that I got to know Blue Bishop and her eclectic family! 3.5/5 ⭐️
