After a day of cleaning I am going to read for a bit whilst having a cuppa. Really enjoying this instalment; Orphan X is a great lead with a Jason Bourne feel to his skill set & damaged soul but with a different motive - to kill the President!

Hope you are all having a fantastic Saturday with a few chapters fitted in & lots of sunshine 🌞

I'm currently reading The Hangman's Daughter.
What are you guys up to this fine Wednesday afternoon? 😃

Dragon I‘m listening to the audiobook 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @HufflepuffGirl90 haha I know that juggling act! 😂 Are you reading The Hangman's Daughter with us on Facebook? 8mo
emilyrose_x I'm reading You Can't Hide...it's pretty good so far! 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @rretzler well that sounds interesting! (???) 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @Heideschrampf @Dragon where did you guys audiobook? Or what activities were you doing? 8mo
MartinaLove The Night Circus 🎪 8mo
TheSpineView The Girl He Used to Know 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @MartinaLove the night circus where have I heard the name of that book before 🤔 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @TheSpineView any good? 😃 8mo
rretzler The Martian Chronicles is classic sci-fi by Ray Bradbury! I read it long, long ago and thought it was time for a reread.

How are you liking The Hangman's Daughter? I read it last year and while I enjoyed some parts of it, others fell flat. I still can't decide if I want to continue with the series or not.
TheSpineView @TheReadingMermaid Loving it! I had already read (twice) On the Island by the author and loved it too. 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @rretzler I am enjoying it especially since Kindle has made a version that has animation in it. I found that to be a very nice touch. It's like the book is Magic ✨ LOL but we are halfway through the book and I'm a little concerned because the daughter hasn't really played a big role in this book so far and considering the fact that she holds the title of the book I'm kind of wondering about that 🤔 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @TheSpineView that's awesome! It is so wonderful when you find things that you love in books 💗💗 8mo
Freespirit I am reading The Overstory. I can tell it's going to be a book I love!! 8mo
rretzler I must admit it seemed to be more about the Hangman than his daughter, but she does come into it more as the book goes on. 8mo
RamsFan1963 Just finished Chuck Klosterman IV. I'm off Thursday & Friday, my goal is to polish off 1000 Books to Read Before You Die and Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell during that time. 8mo
HufflepuffGirl90 @TheReadingMermaid I am!! Can‘t wait for the discussion Friday! 8mo
bewareofwords I‘m reading Hangman‘s Daughter today too! I‘m also listening to Good Omens on Audible. 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @Freespirit oh that is so awesome!!! 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @rretzler that's good to know. Thanks for the heads up sweetie! 😘 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @RamsFan1963 you go sir! Get those books read 🤘😆🤘 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @HufflepuffGirl90 wonderful! I will see you there! 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @bewareofwords oh cool are you also reading The Hangman's Daughter for our group on Facebook? And how is good omens? I've heard lots of good things about that book. 8mo
PatriciaU Hangman‘s Daughter and the rest of the series = all fantastic.
I am reading The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna by Juliet Grames and The World That We Knew by Alice Hoffman
CoverToCoverGirl Starting a reread of the Fallen Angels series 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @SW-T @riversong153 @CoverToCoverGirl how are you liking your books so far? 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @PatriciaU oooo 😗 you are reading the rest of The Hangman's Daughter series????? 8mo
riversong153 @TheReadingMermaid Really loving Pachinko. It‘s a real page turner. Great character development and an interesting story so far!! 8mo
bewareofwords @TheReadingMermaid Yes I am! I was out of town last Friday, but I‘m keeping up with the reading and I‘ll be able to participate this week. :) I‘m liking Good Omens! I wasn‘t totally sure what to expect from it when I started, but it‘s been good. 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @riversong153 love your new profile pic BTW 😍 8mo
TheReadingMermaid @bewareofwords wonderful! And awesome we'll see you Friday! 8mo
SW-T So far, so good 🙂 8mo
Dragon I have the Cloudlibrary app so I have access to free audiobooks. I‘m on holidays so just relaxing while listening. 8mo
PatriciaU @TheReadingMermaid - I‘ve read them, yes. Most are good; a couple are a little uneven in the translation. I enjoy the characters very much. 8mo

UPDATE: I still haven't really been able to read yet. I have been able to read just a page here or a paragraph there but then I have to stop. I feel really bad because I don't know if I'll be able to get through the third Harry Potter book for the Harry Potter buddy Read ☹️
What do you all have planned this weekend? 😃

stephothebesto Re: not being able to read HP- if you're able to listen (and want to) there's a podcast called Binge Mode where they summarize about 3-5 chapters at a time, discuss major themes, and just riff on the book. It's not as detailed as listening to the actual audio book, but it's fun (if you're okay with a fair amount of swearing). 10mo
Dragon I just finished The Library at Mount Char and haven‘t decided what to read next. So I‘ll probably just read my library ebook 10mo
julesG I'll be reading the rubrics for 15 speaking exams today. Then, later, I hope I can read a few pages of 10mo

I'm going to be honest here, I didn't read anything during my stay at the hospital and I still haven't read anything since I've gotten home. My doctors say that I need to lighten my workload and honestly I have felt kind of afraid to jump back in.
Maybe you guys telling me what you're reading this weekend would help inspire me to get back in the game a little. 💖☺️💖

The tagged book! I binge watched The Crown on Netflix during the polar vortex so I‘ve gone down the rabbit hole with wanting to read more about the Windsor‘s and that time period 😂. So of course I had to ILL this one to read! #whatareyoureading @TheReadingMermaid

I'm studying today (exams tomorrow & Friday) so no reading for me. I must live vicariously through you all ❤️🤓📖❤️

#WhatAreYouReading #Wednesday

positivelybrianareads I‘m reading Six of Crows and Renegades ❤️ 11mo
jessinikkip It is about a woman named Bess, who is the mistress of Henry VIII while married to his first wife. She gives him a son, but they arent married so he cant take the throne 11mo
See All 46 Comments
SexyCajun The Cruel Prince Also Kat Makris Greek Mafia series 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @positivelybrianareads how are you enjoying Six of Crows? I've been wondering whether I should get into that one or not. 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @MommyOfTwo oooo 😗 how do you like it so far? Hercule Poirot is such a dynamic character. 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @jessinikkip hmm, interesting. I'm wondering about the title. If her son is unable to take the throne then how is it the Queen's rival? 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @SexyCajun oh the Greek mafia series sounds interesting. How are you liking it so far? 11mo
positivelybrianareads @TheReadingMermaid admittedly it took a while for me to get into because I felt like a lot of characters were being introduced too fast so I had a hard time making a connection. Now that I‘m further into the book though I‘m real enjoying it 11mo
MommyOfTwo I‘m not very far yet and it‘s my first Agatha Christie Book so not sure yet. To comment on Six of Crows, I loved that book so much! I read the sequel right after. 11mo
NovelGirl82 I‘m back at work today, so I‘m reading charts 🤷‍♀️ 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @positivelybrianareads that's great to hear. I have been thinking about getting into this book for a while now. But have been teeter-totter and because I've heard both good things and bad things. 11mo
positivelybrianareads @TheReadingMermaid my best friend had the same experience as me . She originally didn‘t like the book when she first started but she‘s already finished it and she‘s in loooove lol 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @MommyOfTwo what turned me off about that book was that Hercule Poirot while being a very interesting character I found him to also be a little rude and conceited. That may just be my conception of it however. 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @NovelGirl82 awe I'm sorry sweetie. I feel your pain. I am reading textbooks today 😩 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @positivelybrianareads oh good that's wonderful to hear. I may have to add this to my TBR stack! Thank you for sharing with me I really appreciate it 🤗😘 11mo
SexyCajun @TheReadingMermaid it‘s humorous good cozy mysteries. These books have a typo or two every now and then but I don‘t let it bother me 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @SexyCajun that's awesome! I may have to look into these. Thank you for sharing with me sweetie 😘🤗 11mo
Emilymdxn Tagged book and Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James - two quite deep high concept odd books but both absolutely wonderful so far 11mo
greenhairdontcare The tagged book plus Why I Am No Longer Talking To White People About Race & Boys Will Be Boys. 11mo
jessinikkip @TheReadingMermaid because everyone speculated he was going to leave his wife for her since she proved she could produce a son. The queens kept falling out of favor because all theyd give him were girls 11mo
SexyCajun @TheReadingMermaid oh I meant to say that you can compare to Stephanie Plum. Plum is from the 90s but Kat Makris is more current. 🖤🥰 Hope you like them! 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @Carolyn11215 how are you enjoying that one? I've heard a lot of good things about that book. 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @Emilymdxn wow they sound wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing sweetie. I really appreciate it 😘 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @greenhairdontcare how are you enjoying your books so far? 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @jessinikkip oh I see now. Okay okay I can dig it. You really are on a kick with Henry the VIII aren't you? ❤️😊❤️ 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @SexyCajun thank you so much love! I'm sure I will. They have been added to my TBR list ❤️🤗🤗❤️ 11mo
Carolyn11215 @TheReadingMermaid took me a few chapters to get into the swing of the book but now I‘m really enjoying it! 11mo
jessinikkip @TheReadingMermaid I am! I read one really good book about Thomas More and hos time in Henrys court and now I find myself stuck reading them all. Oh well, at least its clearing my TBR 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @Carolyn11215 that is so wonderful to hear. Adding this to my TBR list. Thank you for sharing with me sweetheart ❤️🤗❤️ 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @jessinikkip haha then that's a good thing! Right? 11mo
jessinikkip @TheReadingMermaid with a list of about 200 books to read, even reading one is a good thing haha 😄😄 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @jessinikkip LOL 😋 I totally agree and I feel your pain. I have 580 books on my TBR list. 😲😲😲 11mo
jessinikkip Lol I stopped counting at 200 and that was last october. Ive gotten so many other books... Ive given up and decided 200 is a not quite so overwhelming large number 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @jessinikkip hahahaha right you are! I don't mind the large number as long as I can keep track. Hence the reason why I have Goodreads 😉 11mo
NovelGirl82 After work I read a bit of Two Can Keep a Secret and A Game of Thrones to make up for all of the charts that I was forced to read 😊 11mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Reading this tagged book. Good luck in your exams! 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @NovelGirl82 I'm so glad you got some reading in sweetheart ❤️🤗❤️ 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @Jee_HookedOnBookz thank you so much sweetie. I got an 85% on my final exam today so I'm rockin it so far 👍🏻😁👍🏻 hope you enjoy your book hun. 11mo
greenhairdontcare @TheReadingMermaid I‘m enjoying all of them. Farenheit is the only fiction I‘m reading, & it is scaring me a little, just because I could see it really happening! 11mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @TheReadingMermaid yayyyyyyyy congratulations!!! How are you celebrating?? 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @Jee_HookedOnBookz with a beer and a book my dear! 📘🍻😁 11mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @TheReadingMermaid woot woot! That's the best way! 👍🏼👍🏼❤️😀 11mo
TheReadingMermaid @Jee_HookedOnBookz agreed! 100% 😁 11mo

TheReadingMermaid @cassiopia Awe man, that sucks ☹️ but I guess it's giving you a well-deserved break from reading for a while right? 12mo
cassiopia @TheReadingMermaid It does suck, I packed them too early lol. But I have a lot of yarn that I don't want to take with me so hopefully I can whip up a blanket or two over the next month. 12mo

vaanshere My reaction... 12mo
kellyann28 Reading this! 12mo
Anitareads Almost finished with this one. 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @kellyann28 interesting, and why does he stay more than one or two nights? 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @Anitareads what is that one about? 12mo
madamereadsalot1 I'm loving this book. I'm listening to it, and then going back and rereading it, because I like it that much. It's short, and I'm almost done with it. Would have been already if it weren't for the "fine tooth comb" listening. 12mo
kellyann28 @TheReadingMermaid She intended to gather up information for one or two days to basically ghost write a book. I haven't gotten to what makes her stay longer but the family is creepy lol. 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @madamereadsalot1 wow that one sounds really interesting. Is there a lot of action in it? 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @kellyann28 sounds like my kind of book. I might have to stack that one 😁 12mo
Anitareads Heroine inherits her grandmother's cottage and decides to renovate it with a help of her childhood friend and crush (who is in construction)...slow burn romance... I liked her previous book (tagged) a lot better, this one is just kind of "meh" for me. 12mo
madamereadsalot1 @TheReadingMermaid not really, though it does talk about assasinations. Sometimes relatively graphically. Each chapter changes character. So each chapter has a different voice and a different perspective of a same, yet different story. It's one of those kind of rambling stories without a real plot. I love those kinds, just about the characters. 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @Anitareads that's cool though. I like those kinds of books too. Kind of like those Hallmark romance movies. Not really great in any way but good little stories. 😊 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @madamereadsalot1 OMG it sounds like it would be action-packed! LOL and it sounds cool but I can't do books that ramble on with no plot. IDK why I cannot do it. I have just never been able to. So my hat's off to you girl!! 😁🎩 12mo
bookaholic1 Snowing outside, so curling up with my cat and reading THE FRIENDS WE KEEP. By Susan Mallery. 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @bookaholic1 how are you enjoying it so far? 12mo
madamereadsalot1 @TheReadingMermaid it's really interesting, there may be a plot but I just don't know it yet. Lol! So far it's seems how this particular family's lives were affected during this time period in Bolivia, & how vastly different life actually was for them all. The connections made w/ other people & the breakdown of the relationships in the family & the changes developed in each person. I love learning people's stories, so it's def up my alley. 12mo
bookaholic1 Just started it😊 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @madamereadsalot1 wow you make it sound like such an awesome book girl! I may have to pick it up and try it 😊 I'm just a total sucker for a good story. 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @bookaholic1 please let me know 😋 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @Elma how are you liking it so far? 12mo
Elma @TheReadingMermaid The Wrath & The Dawn is a little slow so far, but I'm not that far into it. Personality Types is really good, but very academic, so it feels like it's taking me forever to read. 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @Elma Personality Types does sound like kind of a heavier read but it sounds extremely interesting. It might be one I might have to pick up. Psychology is one of my most favorite subjects to self study. 12mo
Elma @TheReadingMermaid It is very interesting. This is the second book I've read on the enneagram (although I've read lots of different websites and apps) and it's so much more in depth than the first one I read. Although the first one was a great intro. One of my reading goals for this year is to read one book a month on it, because so many in our circle of friends use it. Plus, I find it fascinating. 12mo
TheReadingMermaid @Elma stacked ✔️ 😁 12mo
Elma @TheReadingMermaid Yay!😊 12mo
