🎧 This was a good listen and while it came with a pdf of the personal assessments, I think I would have liked to have a paper copy of the book itself to have time to reflect on some of the passages.
I read most of this today snuggled on the couch recovering from Covid. I enjoyed following Matthew on his adventures in storm chasing, etc. It was part travel memoir, part coming of age story. Recommended if typos don‘t grate your nerves. #LMPBC @Bookwormjillk @megnews @TheBookHippie @suvata
I finished this one today. #13 in the #DresdenFiles. It was kind of an emotional read for me. I worried that one of my fave #series would never be the same. And, it probably won‘t, but not in the way I was dreading. So, all is well enough at the end for me to want to keep reading, thank goodness. I ordered the next one in the series yesterday and will probably start it after this month‘s #LMPBC pick.
I enjoyed reading about Julia and Paul‘s time in France, etc. It made me hungry for travel and for all the yummy food she describes. I‘m planning to get this in the mail this week. #LMPBC @suvata @megnews @Bookwormjillk @TheBookHippie
🎧 My face most of the time while listening to this: 😳🥴😦 bc I don‘t usually do horror. I‘m sure the other commuters enjoyed or were confused by it. Lol I almost dnf‘d this near the beginning but I‘m glad I came back to it. It was epic and well written, though I am glad it‘s over too. I‘m still processing that ending.
#LMPBC travel memoirs. Thoughts? Preferences? I don‘t own any of these books. I realized the only unread travel memoir I have is My Life in France by Julia Child which I assume most everyone has read. So these are just choices from the interwebs. Let me know if nothing suits your fancy and I‘ll dig further.

Hi @megnews @TheBookHippie @Bookwormjillk ! I‘m excited to read travel memoirs with y‘all! I‘ll start looking for a few choices soon.
1. Italy because of Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes. Might be time for a reread.
2. Yes but it‘s 12th in a series so it may be a bit of a commitment. Changes by Jim Butcher
3. Probably Ghost Story by Jim Butcher. #13 in the series.
Thanks for the tag @Enchanted_Bibliophile !
I finished this one today sitting outside enjoying the nice weather. I really enjoyed it! It did drag a bit here and there but overall was well written, the characters were well done, and I‘d consider reading the next in the series. I‘ll get this in the mail this week.

This ended up being very good but it was slow going in the middle. I‘m glad I persevered even though it took me much longer than it should have. I‘ll be getting this in the mail early next week. My apologies for taking so long! @Laughterhp @robinb @BookwormAHN #LMPBC #GroupH
I finished this one today. Another great installment in the #DresdenFiles #Series This one hit me in the feels. It‘s also the last one I have. I‘m officially caught up to where I stopped reading the series years ago. Guess I‘ll have to buy some more books. 🤷🏻♀️
🎧 Such a good listen! Well plotted out, delightfully written, and well researched. There‘s cross dressing, murder, intrigue, and a love story all in the Pride and Prejudice universe. Ms. Mary Bennett is a spy for Queen and Country. Whatever will she get up to next?
TW: domestic violence
1. I wanted to be a writer and a meteorologist.
2. I‘m a lawyer. I do write a lot but only boring things for work. I‘m still working on my first novel so I do get some creativity in from time to time.
3. Usually top 40 from years past or soothing new age/classical bc my job is stressful.

🎧 This was so good, I started the next one in the #series immediately. I‘m #AudioCleaning to prepare for Easter with the Moms at my house and this has made it so much better. As with the first book, it‘s well plotted and I didn‘t figure out whodunit before the end. It‘s also so fun to spend time in the world of Pride and Prejudice again. We get to see Elizabeth and Darcy, Kitty and Georgiana in this one too. Very well done!
This book kept me reading, though I did skim paragraphs and sometimes pages at a time. The writing style was a bit overly dramatic for my taste but I did want to know what happened so it‘s a so-so.

I‘m planning to get this and 7 1/2 deaths in the mail early this week.
#LMPBC #GroupE Here are some choices for my book this round! Let me know what you think! Links on the comments. @gencmichael @sweetpealsd @ConfessionofaBookaholic
Would one of you forward me the email with everyone‘s addresses in it, please? I didn‘t receive it. @suvata
I really enjoyed this book. It was emotional and such a good story. I wanted to know what happened next. I‘m so glad I decided to read it even though it was a little difficult for me. I‘m thinking that since I already have the next read for #LMPBC #Round15 #GroupT, I will read ‘I Am The Messenger‘ asap and get them in the mail together. This is my last week at a job I‘ve had for 14 years so I‘m prob not making it to the PO until next week anyway.
Finally finished this one! I‘ve been reading it aloud to my husband when he‘s driving us somewhere. It offers a lot of good advice about how to hold important conversations well. The authors also have a bit of a sense of humor which helps.
I‘ve been absent recently. Life has been heavy. I‘m not sure this read is going to help but it‘s next on my TBR. I received it Saturday for #LMPBC #Round15 #GroupT. Here goes ladies! @Kimzey @vonnie862 @Readergrrl
This was another good installment in the #series. This #audiobook has been making my commute better for a while now. Sad to say I cannot find the next books in the series in #audio so I‘ll have to decide if I want to continue in print. #audiocommute Pic from my recent trip to NYC. The main public library is amazing!!
Hey #LMPBC #GroupT, did any of y‘all get an email with our addresses in it? Would y‘all forward it to me at acfoste1 at gmail dot com, please? Thought I‘d share a cute pic of my dog Lucy #petsoflitsy #dogsoflitsy @Kimzey @Readergrrl @vonnie862
Breakfast for lunch today. I took myself out to my favorite breakfast spot after helping my mom and aunt with something unpleasant… again. Hopeful for a good outcome and not to have to do this again. 🤞🏻 The nice lady at the counter let me order breakfast even though I got here a few minutes after they were supposed to stop serving it. 💕
These are some titles from my TBR for #LMPBC #GroupT to choose from. I‘ve got more, if these titles are uninspiring. I tried for a good mix of genres. Let me know what y‘all think. Books tagged in the comments. @Kimzey @Readergrrl @vonnie862
Guess I‘ll just have to stay inside and read! 🤷🏻♀️ 😃
It‘s time to sign up for #LMPBC! I started a group for TBR Backlog #GroupT. Come join us for #Round15! Check out @suvata ‘s page for more information and/or sign up here: https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/5080444aead2ca0ff2-l...
I finished this today at my favorite breakfast spot. It was so good! Makes me want to live out in the middle of nowhere even more…
May was better than April but not by much. I‘m really struggling with motivation to workout. I hit my reading goal though. I‘m actually 4 books ahead on my GR goal for the year. I‘m keeping the same goals for June: 3 books, workout, write, meditate most days, and 3 no sweets days a week.
