dabbe One of my better teacher assignments (other than the “mean“ April Fool's joke): after teaching the parts of speech, kids had to replace all of the nonsense words with bona fide real words. They loved it and couldn't believe that it was quite easy. That led into teaching all about sentence structure. Sigh. I miss teaching, but not all the *&(% that goes along with it. 💚 11h
Deblovestoread Such a great word! 11h
CBee @dabbe I had an ancient Latin teacher in high school - they actually dragged her out of retirement to teach Latin. She was just the best and I adored her, but she was made fun of by some of the other students - she had her glasses held together with safety pins, her slip was always showing, but I never cared. Anyway! She‘d recite Jabberwocky often in a wonderfully dramatic voice and I always think of her when I read it ♥️ 10h
dabbe @CBee She sounds truly like one-of-a-kind. 💚💙💚 10h
CBee @dabbe I‘m going to email you an article my hometown paper did about her! 3h
Aimeesue We had to memorize this one in high school. I can still recite it. And often do. Poems are great to run through while you‘re having an MRI. 😂 2h
CBee @Aimeesue I wish I‘d had that assignment! 1h

So thankful to Julie @RebelReader for putting this on her #ALSpine list, as it gave me the push I needed to finally read it! Loved this story about Lakshmi and her family, both blood and found. I‘ve always been fascinated by the art of henna and appreciated the glossary (and recipes!) at the end.

Let me once again take the opportunity to RAVE about this book (O Caledonia) - I‘ve been thinking about it ever since I finished. Sigh… also, the other weird word in the paragraph is “demesne” which is another word for “domain” 😊 And Hector was tipsy 😂😂 #weirdwordwednesday #weirdwords

CBee @Librariana oh dear, I can‘t read Stephen King 😂😂 I‘ve read The Stand and just recently read Firestarter, but that‘ll be about it for me I think 😅 If you can read King, you‘re not a weenie at all 😊 (edited) 1w

This will be a favorite of the year, without a doubt. The writing is absolutely gorgeous, the setting was a character in itself (the kind where you can almost feel it whilst reading), and Janet…..poor Janet. I loved her, could relate to her in certain ways, even rooted for her despite knowing the outcome. What a book. #blameitonlitsy

TrishB Agree ❤️ haven‘t seen that cover before either. 2w

I‘ve seen mixed reviews for this one, but I really enjoyed it! Maybe it‘s because I‘m currently binging Succession 😂 The Plumb family is MUCH less toxic than the Roy family, though 😬 Another #dysfunctionalfamilyfiction win and it‘s my #TBRtarot choice for February (author‘s first name starts with C).

Amor4Libros I really liked this one, too! 😊 3w
CBee @Amor4Libros it was really good! I had this expectation based on negative reviews but was pleasantly surprised 😊 3w
Amor4Libros @CBee that‘s exactly what happened to me. After I was done I felt as if I‘d read a different book than everyone else had 😅 3w

Chelsea.Poole Love Succession! Maybe I should pick this up to fill the Succession-hole in my life. 🤔 3w
CBee @Chelsea.Poole I‘m addicted! Keep in mind that the book family is way more tame 😂 But I‘m always up for a book about funky family dynamics, as you know. I just really enjoyed it! 3w
lauraisntwilder I like this cover. The one I have is pretty, but this one seems better suited to the story. 3w

I love this word and never knew this was what it meant! I also love looking at old advertisements - makes me nostalgic for when things were (maybe) simpler? Not that I‘m old enough to have played with a zoetrope…..but I digress. Enjoy 😂🤪 #weirdwords #weirdwordswednesday

TheBookHippie Oh wow! How fun! 3w
IndoorDame I had no idea those had such a cool name! I‘m old enough to have played with flip books, which aren‘t as aesthetically appealing lying around a playroom, but were a really neat evolution of that since they could tell a whole mini wordless story… 3w

CatLass007 I‘ve seen pictures of zoetropes, and I‘ve heard the word zoetrope. But I never put the word with the toy. Cool. 3w

willaful When I was a kid, we had a book of paper cut out old-fashioned toys and it included a Zoetrope, so I guess I'm old enough to have played with one. 😂 We used to put it on the record player so it would spin. (There, now you know how old I really am!) 3w
CBee @willaful that sounds cool! I had a record player - one for me and my parents had one too 😊 I guess I just meant I wasn‘t old enough to have played with it when it was new? 🤷‍♀️😂 3w

Leniverse Yay, numbers! Pageboy, Chain-Gang All-Stars, Camp Zero, House of Doors. I would LOVE to get through all of those, but we'll see. I have other book commitments too 😅 I think I'll start with Chain-Gang because I'm already reading a non-fiction. 3w

Leniverse @vivastory It's just ridiculous that I haven't already read it! 3w
TheAromaofBooks Ooooo I forgot this was happening today!!! For now, I'm going with one number because I have way too many challenge/buddy reads happening 😂 Looks like I've owned this one since September 2016. I think it's time haha It's - 3w
vivastory @Leniverse No shame at all. I'm currently reading Yellowface. 3w
CBee @Leniverse I haven‘t read Chain Gang yet either, hoping to get to it soon! 3w
CBee @TheAromaofBooks sounds good to me 😊 3w
CBee @vivastory what do you think of it so far? (edited) 3w
Allylu #12 I'd Rather Be Reading by Anne Bogel; #14 Welcome to Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong; #17 Among the Nameless Stars by Diana Peterfreund; and #18 Hotel Sacher by Rodica Doehnery. I also plan to read Be My Valencrime by Amy M. Reade for #SeasonalCozies !! 3w
vivastory @CBee I started it last night around 10 & before I knew it I had read 120 pages. There are def some moments where I cringe when June's prejudices peek through, but she has a strong narrative voice for someone who seems to often lack her own identity. Also, some of the observations on the arbitrary nature of which books becomes bestsellers, while not new, is great to see (in a bestseller lol) 3w
monkeygirlsmama 12.) The Help - K Stockett, 14.) Double Happiness - T Brasunas, 17.) Stop Littering. Place in a Bin. - P Good, and 18.) Nether - J Beymer... I think I'll start with The Help and go from there. Will make sure I get at least two of them read, but am gonna shoot for all four if I can. 🙂 3w
CBee @Allylu great plan 👏🏻👏🏻 3w
CBee @vivastory oh yes, quite a few cringy moments but fascinating to see a bit behind the scenes of publishing. It‘s sort of like a car wreck you can‘t look away from 😳😂 3w
CBee @monkeygirlsmama the Help is great! Make sure to watch the movie too! 3w
jackilynn #12 Curious Tide-Pascale Lacelle. #14 Empire of Sand-Tasha Suri. #17 The Haunting of Maddy Clare- Simone St. James. #18 Into the Drowning Deep- Mira Grant. Hmmm, I can totally get behind these picks lol 3w
rubyslippersreads I‘m going to start with #12, because it‘s been on my TBR for ages: 3w
AnnR Even though all my numbered picks were just general themes, I'm going with the #12 Kindle. There is a short children's classic titled The Windy Hill that I've been trying to read for a few months now. I'd like to cross that one off my list. 3w
RebelReader I‘m going with #18. 3w
RaeLovesToRead I'll go with XOXO. That works for PopSugar Challenge (book beginning with X) 3w

BethM Damsel in a dress (cozy), the grail conspiracy (fiction maybe sff), 100 yr old man (fic), insomnia (horror). I think I‘ll go with damsel in a dress 3w

CBee @BethM sounds great! Can‘t go wrong with cozy 😊 3w

If you‘re quirky and you know it clap your hands 🎶 😂 I have an abundance of quirks, but here are three.
1️⃣ After I pour the dish soap into a pot or whatever I‘m washing, I squeeze it again for the cute little bubble shower. Every. Single. Time.
2️⃣ I can pretty much turn anything into a song. I think it‘s starting to bug my oldest son 😂
3️⃣ If I write something and don‘t like the way it looks, I‘ll totally do it again. Even a grocery list!

Amiable I loved “Lillian Boxfish”! 1mo
Leniverse Are those all for February?(!) I definitely need to do something about my Kindle backlog, but I don't think I can aim for 20 in one month! 1mo
Leniverse Oh, nvm. I found the post with the instructions now. Sounds fun, and doable. I'll put together a list. 😁 1mo
CBee @Leniverse yay! Heck no, 20 in a month - I can‘t even do that for #bookspin. It‘s just 2-4! 😅 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks You have so many great books on this list! 3w
monkeygirlsmama #13 was a good one! 3w
monkeygirlsmama @Leniverse 😂 Now that really WOULD be a challenge! Of course, back in the day I would have hit that easily but not so much now. 😋 3w

So I‘m not going to tag all of y‘all, but if it helps, I added the free spaces as #readyourkindle books. You could get lucky and have the numbers match up for both, but I‘m not sure about those odds 😂 Might work better to just have two lists. If someone figures out a better option let me know! @TheAromaofBooks
#bookspin #doublespin

Leftcoastzen Lot of nice titles in your list! 1mo

And here we gooooo!! Please read the comments posted below and let me know if anything is confusing, if you have questions, whatever you need! Hoping this will give y‘all plenty of time to get those lists together 😊 #readyourkindle #readyourebooks #readyournook
If you want to be added to my list or removed, shoot me a comment 😊

CBee 1️⃣ This challenge should pair really well with other challenges, especially #bookspin as they both use lists 😃 I'd already made my #bookspin list for February, and you probably have too (if you participate), so here's what I'd suggest: spin numbers are drawn on the 2nd, so when you're making your spin list, you could maybe include #readyourkindle for a few of the entries; ⬇️ (edited) 1mo
CBee alternatively, you could just have a whole separate list for #readyourkindle, et al. Totally up to you and really low-key/customizable. Mix and match your lists however you'd like!
(edited) 1mo
CBee 2️⃣ You do NOT have to read all four books drawn! Maybe aim to read at least two, but as I said, this is low-key and if you don't get to it, it's okay! 1mo
See All 71 Comments
CBee 3️⃣ Make sure to tag me when you post your list and when you read your books, and use whatever hashtag fits your challenge: we have #readyourkindle, #readyourebooks, and #readyournook. (edited) 1mo
CBee 4️⃣ I‘ll try to do a bonus prompt each time (read the book you‘ve had the longest, the shortest, stuff like that) 😊 1mo
CBee 5️⃣ The most important thing: have FUN and bust the Kindle/Nook/E-book backlog! Reach out to me anytime with questions - this is totally new to me as well, so we can all muddle through together. Thanks for participating! 1mo
AmyG I may only be able to read one book. I‘ve got alot of challenges going on! 1mo
TheBookHippie This is super easy to do - YAY! 1mo
CBee @AmyG it‘s low-key, friend 😊 You know my crazy self couldn‘t get all complicated with it 😂😂 1mo
CBee @TheBookHippie yay, I‘m glad you think so! Happy to have you along ♥️ 1mo
dabbe #yourock 🖤🩶🖤 1mo
Crazeedi I already have kindle book on my bookspin! But I may make separate list. Is there a date like monthly to post list? Or just one list to keep working on? 1mo
Crazeedi Ok I guess I didn't see you saying you'll post on the 2nd? 1mo
JenReadsAlot Woohoo!! 1mo
CBee @Crazeedi I‘ll post the numbers on the 5th of each month. So it‘ll be February 5, and so on. I didn‘t want to do it on the same day as #bookspin as I thought that might be overwhelming. 1mo
Crazeedi @CBee ok that's great! Thank you!! I'm going to get a list 1mo

monkeygirlsmama I have Kindle lists, Nook lists, iPad lists... I'm going to limit this challenge to my Kindle list and I'll sit down between now and the 5th to pull my list together. I think this should be fun! Thank you so much for putting this challenge together. 😸 1mo

andreadmw Scrolling through my books I‘m equally terrified to pick 20 and so excited to do this. 1mo
OutsmartYourShelf I'm just using the first 10 fiction & first 10 nonfiction books off my list for the 20 books. That way it will be a complete surprise. 1mo
Vansa I would like to join too! By when do I need to post the list of 20, by today? 1mo
CBee @Vansa awesome! I‘ll add you to my tag list. No need to post by today, you have until February 5 - that‘s when I‘ll draw the numbers. 😊 1mo
CBee @TheSpineView I hope so too! 😊 1mo
CBee @andreadmw you can do it 👏🏻👏🏻 1mo
CBee @OutsmartYourShelf sounds like a great plan 😃 1mo
CBee @Read4life 😊😊 1mo
TheAromaofBooks Perfect!!! My Kindle books are already in one big long list, oldest to newest, so I'm just going to do the next 20 each month 😂 1mo
CBee @TheAromaofBooks sounds good! How‘d I know you‘d probably already have a list of those somewhere? 😂 😜 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @CBee - I try not to talk about it, but I may have a PROBLEM with lists 😂 1mo
CBee @TheAromaofBooks I love lists! There are worse problems to have 😁😂 (edited) 1mo
E.Bolhafner I have 344 books on my kindle, 3 are PDFs [one of which I own not in ebook]. I added the PDFs and the oldest 17 books onto my list. 2011 0.o. Hopefully this helps me clear out my kindle. I should try to clear out my iBooks but my oldest one on there is Middlemarch and I don't think I could read Middlemarch and another book in a month. That thing is dense and long. Plus iBooks has 676 books/pdfs and uhhh no. 1mo
CBee @E.Bolhafner wow! I hope this helps you! 🤞🏻🤞🏻 1mo
CBee @Liz_M thank you, I was remembering to tag y‘all and then forgot on the most important post 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ 1mo
E.Bolhafner @CBee I think there is a lot of overlap. I noticed one of the 20 in kindle is also in iBooks as part of an anthology 🤓 1mo
CBee @E.Bolhafner I‘ve bought duplicates like that before, it happens 😂🤷‍♀️ 1mo
E.Bolhafner @CBee oh jeesh it is worse than that! I will be downloading things from bookfunnel or something in both formats. Stuff your kindle days offers more books via kindle but they also offer ibooks and kobo books and there is overlap. At least I rarely purchased the same item twice!

Most of my ibooks are pdfs from the parenting bundles or vegan bundles so ebooks or shorter things and some knitting patterns.
1mo
Liz_M @CBee I only remember to add the tag if it is an event that i am intrigued by 😆 1mo
CBee @E.Bolhafner oh wow! I‘ve accidentally bought both the print book and the ebook too. But you win, that‘s a lot 😂😂 1mo

I‘ve had this forever and finally read it. Decent thriller, but I kept thinking this particular trope is a bit overdone, plus the Misery references just didn‘t gel? But, it kept me reading and I mostly enjoyed it! One backlog Kindle read off the TBR!

I‘ve been throwing this idea around today and thought I‘d see if any of you lovely Littens are interested! I have a HUGE Kindle backlog (in addition to a print book backlog 😂) and was considering hosting a challenge! I‘d name it #readyourkindle or something similar. You‘d make a master list and then pick at least two Kindle books to read each month. I could also potentially draw numbers like #bookspin. Not sure I‘ll do this yet but wanted to ⬇️

CBee see if anyone might be interested. Could work really well with other challenges - #bookspin et al. Shoot me a comment if this sounds like something you‘d like to do! Thanks friends 😊 ALSO! It can be Kindle, Nook, Kindle app on your iPad, whatever 😄 (edited) 1mo

Roary47 Love it! Count me in! 1mo
Hooked_on_books I could see doing this. I may have a few books lingering on my Nook. But I‘m deeply anti-Amazon, so I‘d be more likely to use #readyourebooks as a tag. Good idea, and thanks for thinking of me! 1mo
TheSpineView I think it is a great idea. I think I am up 2K+ on my Kindle and another 1K+ on my Kobo eReader. I can't seem to pass up a sale or a freebie. 1mo
CBee @Hooked_on_books we can absolutely use more than one hashtag and I think yours is perfect! 1mo
CBee @TheSpineView I‘m the same way. And Kindle Unlimited continues to add more and more books I want 🤷‍♀️😂 1mo
vivastory Thanks for the tag! I probably won't commit to a set number as I am only committing to two challenges this year, but I do plan on using my kindle (& kindle app) throughout the year, esp as I continue reading short stories! 1mo

kelli7990 I‘m interested. 1mo
OutsmartYourShelf I currently have over 8K books on my Kindle plus Kindle Unlimited & ebooks from the library - not sure where I‘d start with setting up a master list. I‘m happy to set a goal to read at least 2 a month from those 3 though. 1mo
RaeLovesToRead I've been reading the same book on my Kindle since September! Haha. I can't do an official challenge because I'm trying to have a clear out of physical books but I will read along and possibly use the hashtag! 1mo
andreadmw I‘d be into this definitely. I‘d say make a list and read off it. It would help me get a handle on what I actually own. With all my other challenges and book clubs I might just have to do 1 a month not 2. 1mo
youneverarrived I would definitely join in! Great idea. 1mo
MatchlessMarie I‘m interested. This would actually make me feel doubly productive if I end up reading a KU book instead of my physical TBR 😈😇 1mo
ElizaMarie I would be very interested in this. Most of my Kindle books are books that were free, but I still want to read or DNF them. 1mo
ShelleyBooksie Cool idea!! 1mo
CBee @TheAromaofBooks wanted to run this by you as it seems the simplest way to do this is to have a list each month and draw the numbers. Do you mind if I do that? It‘s very similar to #bookspin and I don‘t want to steal your idea whatsoever! I may have created a monster but I‘m up for the challenge 😂 Any tips welcome! 1mo
TheAromaofBooks Oh for sure you should go for it! I will probably play along because my Kindle is also over loaded 😂 I don't own the idea; I stole it from a random blog who had a similar challenge and @PuddleJumper also has #Roll100 with a similar theme. So I would just set the number of books you think should be on the list so people have a range to plan for and then decide when you're going to do the draw. I have a set day for mine; Jo just does her draw ⬇ 1mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) sometime towards the end of the month, so you don't necessarily have to pick A DAY like BookSpin does haha Put me on your tag list and keep me posted!!! And thank you for asking ❤ ❤ ❤ 1mo
CBee @TheAromaofBooks awesome! I love how we can sort of share similar ideas 😊 I‘ll def put you on the tag list, I think I‘m going for it! 😂🤪 1mo
TheAromaofBooks All of us are here just wishing someone would tell us what to read next 😂 I know you'll find a way to give the challenge your own twist. I love seeing all the crafty ways we come up with to keep ourselves tackling the lists!!! 1mo
CBee @TheAromaofBooks truer words were never spoken 😂😂 Thanks for the encouragement! ♥️ 1mo
Laughterhp Ooh this is a good idea! My unread list on my kindle isn‘t as crazy as I thought it would be, but still pretty high! (160 unread books)! 1mo

Heartbreaking book. Classified as YA, and I‘d say it fits that mainly because the main character is a teenager….. but wow, the subject matter tackled here is intense and heavy and heartbreaking. I thought it was a really spot on book about addiction - about the addict of course, but also about the “collateral damage” to his/her family and friends. Powerful. #TBRtarot for January (book starting with You)

I absolutely loved this - it has everything a “dysfunctional family fiction” fan like me craves! The setting was perfect - both location-wise (Cape Cod) and political climate-wise (I‘ll never forget the election of 2016). Flawed characters, some way more so than others, found family, so many secrets. I‘ll be thinking about this one for a while.

CatLass007 One of Robert B. Parker‘s Spenser novels was titled Hugger-Mugger. I can‘t recall the plot but I remember the title. Now know what it actually means. 2mo

vivastory Ah, great choice! Such a fun word to say 2mo
CBee @peanutnine right? Doesn‘t seem like it could be real 😂 2mo
CBee @CatLass007 how cool! I found a restaurant, a yoga brand, and a brewery all named Hugger Mugger when I googled it 😂 2mo
CBee @vivastory I think we should write a short story with all of these funny words 😂 2mo
Daisey Interesting! Also, I need to look up this website! I always enjoy the birds. 2mo
vivastory @CBee 😂 Can you imagine? “The Case of the Evaporating Palaver“ lol 2mo
dabbe “We have done but greenly, / In hugger-mugger to inter him“ (Claudius, to Gertrude after secretly burying Polonius).

Of course, I did NOT know it; I had to look it up! 🤩😂😍
2mo
CBee @vivastory “A Hugger-Mugger Murder” 😂😂 2mo
CBee @Daisey the pigeons are great 🐦 😊 2mo
CBee @dabbe ooooo I‘m telling the teacher! Oh wait…… 😂😂😂 2mo
vivastory “...a Most Nefarious Homicide“ 😂 😂 Call our agents! Call Netflix! (edited) 2mo
CBee Let‘s get @The_Penniless_Author involved here - I posted the word “crepuscular” and I love capybaras who happen to be just that. So he ran with the whole “crepuscular capybaras” and I think we should just add…. “From Space” 😂😂😂😂 @vivastory (edited) 2mo
The_Penniless_Author This sounds like a term you'd use for that one grandma or great aunt at every family gathering who's always hugging the little kids and kissing them on the cheek. 😂 2mo
CBee @The_Penniless_Author you‘re totally right 😂😂😂 mugging you with the hugging 😂😂 2mo

Magpie Murders | Anthony Horowitz

Pickpick

This was fabulous!! I love the book within a book and LOVE the Clue-esque way Atticus explains the machinations behind the murder. @RaeLovesToRead thanks for the glowing rec, I loved it!! This was my #doublespin for January, @TheAromaofBooks 😊

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! I have had this one on my shelf forever!!! 2mo
CBee @TheAromaofBooks it‘s really good! 2mo
vivastory I really enjoyed this one. Have you read any other Horowitz? I thought The Word Is Murder was a blast (very meta) 2mo

dabbe It was a ride, wasn't it? 🤩😍😃 2mo
RaeLovesToRead So glad you liked it! 🤗💕 2mo
CBee @vivastory this was my first by him! I downloaded the second in this series but will have to check out the one you recommend 😊 2mo
CBee @dabbe yes! It also reminded me that I would probably have the BEST time at one of those murder mystery dinner type things. That would be so fun! 2mo
CBee @RaeLovesToRead have you read the second in this series? The Moonflower Murders? 2mo
RaeLovesToRead @CBee Got it on the TBR! 🥰 2mo
CBee @RaeLovesToRead I found it on Kindle Unlimited plus The Word is Murder too! 2mo
RaeLovesToRead Got them both in paperback!! 2mo
dabbe @CBee He's written some Sherlock pastiches that I love, too! 🤩 2mo
CBee @RaeLovesToRead 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2mo
CBee @dabbe how cool 😊 2mo
quietjenn I forgot how much I liked this one, until watching the TV adaptation lately. I really want to read the sequel, but when my library holds can't in it was surprisingly huge and I'm a little intimidated! 2mo
CBee @quietjenn whoa you‘re right! 600+ pages 😳 2mo

I always thought this word was fun to say - though the condition it describes is serious and in no way am I trying to make light of it! #weirdwords #weirdwordswednesday

Megabooks Yes, interesting word awful problem! 2mo
CBee @Megabooks exactly! I hesitated to post because I would never want to lessen what is a major issue and I have so much sympathy for anyone dealing with it. But at it‘s core, it‘s just a really cool and weird word 🙂 2mo
dabbe An episode on Criminal Minds depicted a woman with this condition. It was frightening! Well, anything on CM usually was. 😂 2mo

I agree with @TrishB that we should organize a Valérie Perrin fan club ♥️ How does she write such beautiful books? I think it must be magic. Fresh Water will always be my favorite (and I still haven‘t read Three), but I loved this one almost as much. What a great way to start 2024!

CBee @TheBookHippie and @AmyG I think you‘d both love this! 2mo
AmyG I know I will but with challenges, I just haven‘t gotten to it yet. 2mo
CBee @AmyG I understand! 2mo

Bookish.SAM I loved Fresh Water! Her writing is incredible, after just one book she‘s already a must-read author for me 😍 2mo
CBee @Bookish.SAM so glad to find another Perrin fan! I think you‘d love this one too ♥️ 2mo
Megabooks Yes, let‘s form that fan club!! 2mo
Tamra Fan girl here! 2mo
BarbaraBB She‘s really exceptional - and so is the translator 🩵 2mo
CBee @Tamra I meant to tag you 🤦‍♀️ 2mo
CBee @BarbaraBB yes! And I love how Lucien in the book is named for her grandfather! 2mo
TrishB I can‘t wait for a new one! 2mo
BarbaraBB I didn‘t know that. How lovely 2mo
Tamra @CBee 😉 I hope she writes more quickly! I am hoarding tagged book. 2mo
Suet624 This is my second favorite of hers. Three comes in third. I love her. 2mo
CBee @Tamra I did the same thing for a few months! Now I need to get to Three - have you read that one? 2mo
CBee @Suet624 ♥️♥️ 2mo
CBee @BarbaraBB in the back she thanks him, plus a few other people in her family who pop up in the book too 😊 2mo
Tamra @CBee yes! Not as good as Flowers, but worth reading for sure. (edited) 2mo
CBee @Tamra awesome - but is anything as good as Flowers? I‘m not sure 😂 2mo
Tamra @CBee 😜 Funny you should say that because today I watched a Booktuber today say she didn‘t enjoy Flowers as much as she anticipated - too repetitive & commercial she thought. To each their own! 2mo
CBee @Tamra blasphemy 😂😂😂 2mo
RebelReader I loved Fresh Water! 2mo
CBee @RebelReader I think you‘d like this one too! FW was my favorite read in 2022 ♥️ 2mo
Mitch She‘s fab! So glad she‘s getting translated. Loved Three as well. 🥰 2mo
CBee @Mitch I saw that you read FW and was so happy to see that you loved it too ♥️ 2mo

I‘ve read all of Alice Feeney‘s books except one! Slow start to this one and wasn‘t sure how I felt about it at first, but ended up really liking it! Not so much a thriller but definitely a good mystery 👏🏻

A March 2023 favorite ♥️ #12Booksof2023 @Andrew65

Andrew65 Wondered if this book might figure. Ido wonder if he has regretted publishing this as seems to have possibly made things worse between him and his family. All very tragic. 2mo
CBee @Andrew65 I wonder the same. I‘m sure it was freeing for him, but I can‘t imagine he wouldn‘t feel a bit of regret about it too 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
Andrew65 @CBee It‘s also about trust, as well I imagine, be difficult for some of his family to be around him for fear of anything they say or do being in a future book. 2mo
CBee @Andrew65 yes! Absolutely true. Who knows if things will ever be the same between them 🙁 2mo
