And Then You Were Gone | R. J. Jacobs
Pickpick

And Then You Were Gone kept me guessing until the end. While the beginning is a little slow hold on because the story picks up and is nonstop from there! R.J. Jacobs did an excellent job describing Emily's inner dialogue. As the story progressed I could feel her manic behavior while reading. It was like my own mind was racing along with her.

Good Night, Kitty Kitty! | Brenda Ponnay
post image
Pickpick

This book makes for the perfect bedtime story! It is short and sweet and not too wordy. My 5 year old daughter has fallen in love with "Good Night, Kitty Kitty!" It has become a lovely addition to her bedtime reading routine.

BluestockingDuchess I love how many of the words are simple and repeated, making it an easy read for young children. This book will quickly became a soothing bedtime favorite.

I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

Drawn to the Marquess | Bronwen Evans
post image
Pickpick

#ARC

This is my first book by this author I really enjoyed the story between Penelope and Stephen and how their relationship grew. The slow seduction with Stephen towards Penelope was quite enjoyable and did not feel rushed. For me the story did not seem to drag along or stall like some other romance books.

SEE MORE BELOW IN COMMENTS
⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
#DrawnToTheMarquess #NetGalley
#ebook #loved #booklover #bookobsession #kindle

BluestockingDuchess When Penelope mentioned swimming early on it seemed to for tell an important event relating to swimming further along in the book. Things really turn around for Stephen and his mindset over losing his sight when he meets Travis.

If there is not a story between Dorothea and Jonathan I hope one is written. I am going to check out other books by the author to see if there is one.

I can not wait to read the next book in this series #loveswept

@Ddzmini Thank you so much! The two handmade ones are absolutely gorgeous! I showed my eight-year-old the back of the polar bear but bookmark and he thought it was so hilarious. I have never seen anything like that before. Of course my husband had to joke with me about the just one more chapter bookmark. That seems to be the most common phrase out of my mouth. LOL Thank you again!

Growing up and still today I enjoy the music of the 70s and 80s. ABBA, Jim Croce, Don McLean. Janis died October 4, 1970 so I am including her in the #stepfordsummerparty Back in college I would go into the ceramics studio in the wee hours and crank up her music.
🎤🎼🎤🎼

#stepfordsummerparty
Born in 1980 I totally missed out on the 70s. But growing up I watched The Brady Bunch reruns?. I couldn't help but always stare at Carol's wide collars and that God awful long hair flip that she had going on in the back. I wanted to take scissors✂️ to it and cut it off

"Mom always said don't play ball in the house"
"Marcia Marcia Marcia"
"Ooh! My nose!"

Cinfhen The Brady‘s were the Huxtable‘s of the 70s!!! Loved the cheesiness and I especially loved their specials, like the three part trip to Hawaii and when they sang to win their parents an anniversary gift 🎁 The Silver Platters 🎶 1y
Bklover I was Peter and Jan‘s age when it was on. Loved every episode. Remember when Marcia dated the football player from a different school and Greg got mad. Such drama!!!! @Cinfhen @coffeeandbooks 1y
