Finished this late last night for #SuperSeptember I really enjoyed it and exploring the relationships between the three women, who start as business partners but become friends and family to each other throughout the book. And, there‘s a minor character that I would love to see get his own story.

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 2w

We might be moving. Going to look at a house today. As such, I‘m supposed to be thinning out and packing stuff to get our current house ready to put on the market. So what do I do at the grocery this morning? Buy more books. 🤦‍♀️ you guys, I just have no shelf control at all.

DivineDiana That‘s why we are here! 😅🙋‍♀️📚 2mo
CocoReads @DivineDiana I knew you would understand! I will say the house we‘re looking at today is double the size of our current little house and was built in 1910 so it‘s got a lot of built Ins already. Maybe not a lot of closets though in the bedrooms. 2mo
DivineDiana That is fantastic! My house was built in 1929, so I am well aware of the closet problem. Then, I think during that time period, people didn‘t own so many choices. And maybe that was a good thing. 🤔 Good luck with your search! 2mo

CocoReads Turns out there‘s closets in all but one bedroom. The stairs are narrow and steep so that‘s a bit of a drawback. The driveway is narrow and tricky but there is street parking. It‘s in town, and so close I could walk to work in good weather. It‘s the first house we‘ve looked at and so there‘s a lot to consider 2mo

Day 2. Didn‘t finish anything today, but I‘ve started all three of these. 1 chapter in for both Caste and Yes & I love you, 4 chapters in on the BJ Daniels book. My work schedule is a bit wonky this week but we canceled tomorrow nights twice postponed book group due to most of us either getting over so@etching or fighting off something. So hopefully I can get some good reading in this week. #JubilantJuly

Andrew65 Well done, like you I didn‘t finish anything on day 2. 3mo

Finally finished. It‘s only a couple hundred pages and I wanted to like it but I just…didn‘t. I can‘t even really put my finger on why, she writes well and the journey to find herself should have been compelling but overall I found it no more exciting than reading about my own life. I felt she dropped the ball with regards to her father, that those parts were kind of glossed over. It was ok, just not ultimately for me. #JubilantJuly

Non book related—the sun briefly came out and I ignored the humidity and took the dog on a short walk. It‘s pretty blurry because I was trying to zoom in and keep the dog from giving chase and we were halfway down the street but I rarely see deer when I‘m out and it‘s super rare to see them in the middle of the day.

So while not exactly following her step a week formula (I mostly just play at writing for my own amusemen plus I‘m a slow writer, and a big procrastinator) ) this book does have lots of good tips and suggestions. I‘m sure I‘ll refer back to it. #JubilantJuly @Andrew65

The other book I started for #20in4 it‘s fine, but I can‘t figure out if the 2 storylines are going to join together, or if they‘re going to stay separate. I can‘t see how they‘re going to connect but I‘ve been surprised before.

Book 2 for #20in4readathon I actually put this aside to focus on Klara—which was for my book group meeting tonight. I enjoyed this one—it was short and almost insta love, as it takes place over a couple of weeks? But there was a lot of emotion and depth packed in. @Andrew65

This may very well be the only book I finish for #20in4readathin I had to switch to audio to get through it and I‘m overall not an audio fan but in this case it worked well for me. I like a hefty dose of movement in my reading and the beginning of this started really slow. Hen it got better but overall it didn‘t do much for me. Interesting ideas and well written but not my jam.

Book 2 for #joyousjanuary I read the first in this series last week and while this one was less enjoyable, it mostly wrapped up the mystery started in the first and It ended on enough of a cliffhanger that I‘ll read the third probably, but it‘s definitely a library read for me. @Andrew65

CocoReads Technically I go back to work tomorrow but we‘re playing that new party game: cold or Covid? It‘s my hubs that‘s sick and his first rapid test was negative but I‘m pretty sure he‘s got it. And as much as I‘ve tried to stay away (sleeping in a separate room, spraying lysol everywhere), we still live in a small house and even though I‘m vaxxed and boosted, I‘m starting to feel some congestion so stay tuned. 9mo
Andrew65 Great 👏👏👏 9mo

#20in4 And I‘m done! First book for 2022 and a 5 ⭐️ read for me. I enjoyed the contemporary storyline but not nearly as much as I enjoyed the story of Britta, who grew up in Denmark during WW2. I didn‘t know anything about the history of the Danes during the war, they lit occupation by nazi troops and the acts of heroism practiced by the Danes, particularly when the order was given to round up the Jews. 👇

CocoReads While fiction, it was based partially on true events. And it turns out this is the 6th in a series, so now I‘ve found a new to me author. #20in4 @Andrew65 9mo

Bought a fancy new stove today. For no more than I actually cook, I maybe could have gone more basic but I was seduced by the bells and whistles. Plus, it was only $100 more than the basic one I was looking at. It doesn‘t come until Friday and I‘m working 10 that day so I won‘t really get to mess with it until Saturday but it‘ll be refreshing to have a functioning oven and burners I do t have to manually light.

#AwesomeApril wrap up. I didn‘t really post all week but I spent the majority of it knocking out 22/24 books in the Men of Valor MC series. I‘d read the first 2 previously. They were super short and some were definitely better than others. I also started A Splendid Ruin for my IRL book group at the end of the month. Thanks for hosting, @Andrew65

Andrew65 Brilliant 👏👏👏🙌🍾🥂🍾🥂🎉🥳😊 Thanks for playing long. 1y

Scrolling around on Amazon video I saw that The Morganville books are now a series. Watched the first episode. It was ok but the books are definitely better. I also never finished reading them, can‘t even remember where I left off. Might be time for a re-read.

CocoReads Update. I can only watch the first episode unless I want to pay for the rest. It‘s pretty bad and I‘m cheap when it comes to paying for tv so I‘m going to pass.... 2y

Y‘all know I‘m not an audio girl but one of the nurses at work told me this one was worth it, and she was right! I mean, I checked it out from the library via Libby but if I was to buy an audio book, this would be a good one. He‘s led an interesting life and his stories about growing up, lessors learned, and acting and worth the listen. Plus I want to buy it and read it with my eyes as well. #20in4teadathon @Andrew65

CoverToCoverGirl Loved this one— I listened too but I‘m with you, I need a copy on hand. 2y
