My September #BookSpinBingo
Not bad for a very busy month. Bring on October!
Here‘s my plan for this weekend‘s #20in4 Readathon with @Andrew65
I plan to finish up The Good Left Undone on Friday then all things murder starts Saturday for #TeamSlaughter plus the two chapter a day reads for #PemberLittens
When everyone started reviewing this book partially narrated by an octopus I didn‘t really think it was for me. Turns out I was wrong! I loved this audiobook.
Pick for the book, pan for my ear buds running out of batteries three minutes from the end 😂
Penny hadn‘t hit her stride yet when she wrote this book, but it was still a decent read. I love this series so much, and I can‘t wait for the new one in November!
#SuperSeptember book 1/6
That cat in the background? Not my cat. One day years ago the electrician accidentally let him in and he helped himself to my cat‘s food. He‘s come almost every day since hoping it will happen again.
My friend, knowing about the #ReadingAfrica2022 project, let me know about this Harlequin romance set in the #Seychelles
A Nigerian princess manages to escape her father for one night only to end up pregnant by the richest man in the country. Can she find freedom, love, and mend his broken heart? She can, but it involves traveling to his luxurious estate is the Seychelles to do it.
Not deep literature, but a great way to spend a rainy Sunday.
A book about some of the good things happening in modern Africa. I‘m glad I read this one! #ReadingAfrica2022
I read this for bookclub at work. It was well written but so melancholy knowing what was going to happen. It‘s a good book but not for me right now.
Catching up on this dark and dreary morning after a long weekend. Wish I could just take the day off and progress on my #BookspinBingo board!
This could have been a dry text, but Steinmetz kept it interesting. My favorite part was when he contrasted Gould‘s manipulations of the market with present day. Listened to this on a road trip, and my husband and I both enjoyed it.
I think reading about a town suddenly stuck under a mysterious dome was just a little too claustrophobic and 2020 for me because I did not enjoy this one very much. I do appreciate how much research King puts into the details of his books though.
Finishing this was my #20in4 goal. Glad I got it done!
What a cool book that I would have never run across if it weren‘t for #ReadingAfrica
I thoroughly enjoyed this short non-fiction account of the study of the coelacanth.
(And this was actually fun to read after the #CampLitsy selection Our Wives Under The Sea.)
I was lukewarm on this and wasn‘t planning on continuing the series until I got to the end. Now I need to know. Overall I think I prefer her fairy tale retellings though. #AuthorAMonth2022
I wanted to learn more about Watergate so of course I went to the source. I expected Nixon gossip but this was more a super interesting retelling of all the steps the two men went through to report their story. This version also had a new intro from 2022 which compared Watergate to current events. #AwesomeAugust book 6/6
This was a cute middle grade read. First daughter Audrey finds consolation and inspiration in the diary of Alice Roosevelt. Chaos ensues. Being a mom of middle schoolers myself I usually roll my eyes at my parents don‘t get me angst, but Audrey was right here. Her parents pretty much abandoned her to pursue their own goals. I enjoyed reading about her finding her way. #AwesomeAugust book 4/6.
I was up and out early today to run some necessary errands, but now I‘m settled in for the #AwesomeAugust Readathon. The buddy read for the tagged book only calls for reading the first half now, but I might just sit here and read the whole thing. #ItsMyBirthdayAndIllReadIfIWantTo
