1. It changes all the time. Delightful is the word today.
2. Three seems like a good number... I'm reading Outlander and I think there are 10 so far.
3. I don't write really, but if I did it would be fiction.

Dracula | Bram Stoker
Pickpick

I listened to Dracula on audible and I really enjoyed it. For all the vampire movies and TV shots I've watched I never read the original. This Dracula does not sparkle or fall in love. He's a monster.

Mehso-so

I wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe it was the wrong time for me to read this.

I didn't find the characters likeable or sympathetic, I kept hoping I'd get into it but it never happened.

I borrowed the audiobook from the library because I couldn't get into the ebook. The book is narrated by the author and she has a lovely accent, easy to listen to.

ljuliel From the reviews I‘ve read, it sounds like you‘re in the majority. Most seem to be on the fence with it. I thought it sounded good but haven‘t tried it yet. 2w

5. I enjoy all of those even if I don't participate, they're fun. I do love questionnaires!

I'm loving this book so far. Such an interesting premise. It's made me try to remember what I was doing on December 28, 1986. Probably wallowing in my teenage angst and driving my parents crazy!

I have $40 in Kindle credit to spend in the next 21 days - I need suggestions please!!!

Have a fantastic week!

Gaaaahh!!! Me and Daisy loved this book. Linda Holmes captured all the feels. She even wrote about seeing mental health assistance in a way that makes sense for anyone. It's a fun book, but I really related to the characters. None of them were perfect, just perfectly ordinary. Love!

SharonAlger Oh my goodness! I have a half boxer named Daisy! Your girl is adorable 😍 3mo
Coleen_Nieto @SharonAlger thank you!! I love her so much! Her tongue is super long so its always hanging out of her mouth so she looks so goofy 😀 I look forward to seeing pictures of your Daisy! 3mo
