Isn‘t this cover just 😍! This book is a wonderful romance in the vein of “The Scarlet Pimpernel”. Countess Alina is in love with both the criminal Robin Hood like Harlan Crowe and the stodgy but deep Duke of Ravenaugh. How will she figure out who to give her heart to? #readyourkindle #mtTBR

I always wondered what happened to Severn before we meet him in “Cast In Shadows” and this book does not disappoint! I love visiting the world of Elantra! #readyourkindle #mtTBR

Seven survivors of a school bus tragedy meet once a year for a week to mourn and keep an eye on each other. When one kills himself before the next reunion and another goes missing they must figure out who wants them dead. I didn‘t see the ending coming at all!

A wonderfully suspenseful book focused on 3 couples and how they allow room for secrets and lies in their relationships.

I love Charlotte Stein and I loved this book. Alfie and Mable are so lovely, funny and awkward and the friendship they develop along the way is just sweet. Plus I love a good fake dating story and this one really delivers #romantsy

Enid is a woman who always feels out of place. She uses True Crime podcasts and casual hookups to soothe herself. She starts to worry that someone is breaking into her apartment at the same time she begins to fall for one of her hookups. This books is at times absurd and often heartfelt. It‘s a wonderful and slightly disturbing read. #botm #ReadAway2024

I love a cozy romance and this one really hit the spot. The story of Lynet a middle class bookbinder and Reggie a posh soldier invalided out from WWI working together to create magic books for the government. #mtTBR #ReadAway2024

Pictured above about 50 books I own that I have never read. (Note my judgmental dog in the background) I‘ve come to the realization I own about 250 unread books (physical, ebook & audiobook) I‘m making an ambitious goal this year to not buy any new books for a full year. I‘ll make a library exception but otherwise, I‘m reading down my TBR exclusively. Let‘s see how long I last. 📚📚📚📚

Nessavamusic That is my goal for the year also! 4mo
mcctrish I can‘t not buy books but my unread book pile is much more extensive than this 😬 the pandemic really got me out of the borrowing books habit and book outlet really enabled me. I am going to really try and read down my pile and only buy keepers #weshallseehowifare 4mo

5feet.of.fury I pulled down 20 from my TBR & I‘m on a buying ban until they are read. I don‘t mind having some backlog, but there‘s no reason for me to have it overflowing with stuff, especially when there are a bunch I was really excited for that keep getting passed over. You have some goodies there, I really liked that Alex Finlay! 4mo
CoffeeK8 @5feet.of.fury I like this plan too! Great way to organize. Yes, I‘m excited for some of these reads, I just kept buying more instead of reading them LOL 4mo
RebL I love this goal. Maybe I‘ll make it my 2025 bookish resolution. 4mo
Chelsea.Poole I‘ve read the first 4 in your first stack and they were all winners for me. Looks like you‘ve got some great reading ahead of you this year! 4mo
CoffeeK8 @Chelsea.Poole you‘re so right! Thats why I decided to do it this year. So many good books languishing on my shelves! 4mo
marleed @mcctrish My unread books are shelved alongside my completed books in my reading room, but I distinguish them with post-it note tab on the spine (it works!). When I pull one out for next up consideration chances are it will have a 2020 publishing date! I spent a fortune in physical books during lockdown- it really was my comfort when I saw so few people in person. 4mo
CoffeeK8 @RebL thanks! 4mo
mcctrish @marleed I have a bookcase ( and floor pile) in my bedroom and a wheelie cart in the living room with my unread books. The joy I felt when my books got delivered during lockdown(s) ❤️❤️❤️ some of mine are actual comfort books, they could remain unread and I will cart them wherever I might go 4mo
CoffeeK8 @marleed @mcctrish I used to have them piled next to my bed and piled in my office but I‘m trying to neaten up a little. Only one book on my bedside table 😬 4mo

What a heartbreaking and inspiring book. 3 hikers disappear from the PCT over the course of a few years and the author tells the story how their families deal with the loss and connect with others who feel compelled to help in the search.

As a huge True Crime fan, I was psyched to read this book which was written with such disdain for The Defendant. The victims and their loved ones are the most important part of the story. I love how this book highlights this while also showing all the ways the media and the investigators can let the victims down.
