Finished the first book from my #tbrdeckofcards and it was interesting, although I think I may have had my expectations a bit high. Not sure I‘d consider it one of the best mysteries of all time, but it was definitely a very interesting look at Richard III.

Ruthiella I wouldn‘t call it one of the best of all time either, but I liked how it was “solved” from his hospital bed and it also made me rethink Richard III‘s reputation and if it was justified. 😀 2w

Here is my January plan. Can‘t remember if there‘s a hashtag for the 52 week deck of cards thing.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! And if it's the challenge where you assign playing cards to the books you want read, it's #TBRDeckofCards hosted by @Clwojick But there are a few challenges this year with 52 prompts, so that may not be the one you are looking for! 😂 3w

This was an October First Reads from Amazon. This story centers around Annie, who is driving her daughter to the pediatrician when she‘s in an accident. Waking up at the hospital, when she asks about her daughter she is told she doesn‘t have a daughter. In fact, her whole life is different than what she remembers. This was a fascinating story that I read in one sitting. Hopefully this author will write more!

Still, think this will be a good series- just gonna have to start taking notes!

Between so-so and a 👎. I didn‘t like the ethics of the therapist, and I didn‘t much care for Christie either. I admire her wanting to tell her story, but I just found this whole thing to be a bit much.

Megabooks 💯💯 agree with your review!! 7mo

Bklover When writing a book about yourself I guess you will appear somewhat self involved but this was crazy. And this woman must be made of money to afford this much “therapy”. (I use the term therapy loosely). Rolled my eyes so much I gave myself a headache. @Cinfhen @Megabooks @Moonprismpower @kspenmoll 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 7mo
Megabooks Did anyone else find it suspect that his special second group she‘s a part of was all the people in the highest paid professions?? And most therapists want to get you better to the point where you need LESS therapy not more!! @Bklover @Cinfhen @Moonprismpower @kspenmoll 7mo
Moonprismpower @Megabooks @Bklover yes! First red flag was lack of confidentiality. Second was third tiered therapy. Like oh you made it next level. But not a good way in my opinion to get help. Group therapy sounds good. But I wouldn‘t want to be in hers. 7mo

When I was growing up my mother ADORED Georgette Heyer. Her books were all over our house. As I was an avid reader I probably read a few, but I imagine I considered them “mom books”. She loved romances, and I‘m a mystery gal. Seeing so many current reviews of her books, I went to eBay and bought this bunch (cheap!). First they made me cry, because the covers are the same as the ones my mom read. My daughter and I are going to dig in ⬇️

Bklover to these today!! My youngest never got to know my mom, so this will be a fun way to show her a bit of what she loved. I‘m so excited! (edited) 7mo

I read this in one sitting, so it will get a Pick just for the fact that I couldn‘t put it down. Most of the action in this book takes place over a 24 hour period and revolves around Livvy, who is throwing herself a 40th birthday party. It‘s about family and secrets and is not a twisty thriller like I expected. It was on occasion irritating too, but it did keep me reading.

Last book for #20in4 readathon. Ended up with a little over 12 hours, which is amazing for me. (Can‘t show timer as I forgot to turn it off). I enjoyed this book. I‘m not sure why- I guessed the villain right away and while there were plot differences this had the same feel as another book I read recently. Regardless, any book I manage to finish these days is a great success, and I sat here enthralled all afternoon.

This is the plan for #20in4, along with something from my kindle. Probably no Bleak House #whatthedickens this weekend, but not giving up yet! Thanks @Andrew65 for hosting these readathons! If you‘re interested this one runs from 1/29-2/1, so it‘s starting soon!

Cinfhen Good luck 💚💚💚 12mo
Andrew65 Wow some great choices. Good luck. I‘m about 25% through 12mo

This not the book I am supposed to be reading, as MaciGrace has pointed out to me. But it is the first book I‘ve read in 2021, and I‘m just happy to have been able to focus long enough to finish it! I learned a few things and found myself googling several times to dig a bit deeper. I‘d have eliminated one of the characters as unnecessary but otherwise I truly enjoyed it.

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In 2015 I met Ben Fainer, a survivor who spent time in six different camps. He was a sweet lovely man, and I still cry when I look at this photo. Please don‘t forget. 🕯

Cinfhen Thank you for tagging me ❤️ There are fewer and fewer survivors left to share their stories, how wonderful that you had the opportunity. xxx #WeRemember 12mo
Bklover @Cinfhen Yes, that sweet man died about a year after that- I don‘t know if you can tell in the pic or not but I‘m crying and he put his arm around me to comfort me. I wish everyone had the chance to sit in a room face to face and hear a survivor‘s story. I felt so honored to hear it. ❤️😘 12mo
Cinfhen Awww, now I‘m crying 😭 😭 😭 I‘ve heard and met many survivors, some are actually my friends parents and grandparents- you‘re right, it‘s truly an honor to hear their stories (edited) 12mo
