Listened to the audiobook and loved it! I‘m an eighties kid and was a huge Wham! fan back in the day, and this brings back so many memories. It‘s not a dirty laundry tell all, but rather a collection of memories and insights into a lifelong friendship, pop stardom, and the music business. Andrew Ridgeley narrates, and he‘s a great storyteller with a self deprecating sense of humor. Very enjoyable and a lovely tribute to George.

Hey, I‘m a BFF! 😎

I‘ve tried various subscription boxes, and the no frills blue box is my tried and true, price wise and for what they offer. I‘ve enjoyed the books I‘ve chosen and am thrilled that they now have a loyalty program. Love BOTM!

3.5 stars. Enjoyable, but the heroine annoyed me. She completely misunderstood the hero when she first met him, when it‘s obvious to everyone he‘s a decent guy, and she does some dumb things that make made me cringe. Otherwise, a cute, humorous read with a fabulous cast of supporting characters. The Book Loft in Columbus is featured, which gets a big thumbs up from me. Love that store!

I went into this with high expectations that turned to “meh.” The story itself was interesting enough to keep me reading, but I just couldn‘t connect with any of the characters. That, unfortunately, made the book fall flat for me.

1) I do, and don‘t keep a journal. I‘ve been thinking of writing again, so maybe a dream journal might give me ideas. 🤔
2) A dragon, and I‘d name him Fitz.
3) Elizabeth Bennet from Pride & Prejudice
4) Currently the lands in The Priory of the Orange Tree.

When I first saw the format this book was written in, I wasn‘t sure if I‘d get into it, but it pulled me in right away. The Fleetwood Mac/seventies bands influence is obvious, but these characters stand on their own. And get under your skin. The ending was too open ended for my taste, but all in all a great story with lots of ups, downs, and emotional moments. A keeper.

1) Nearest library is half an hour away, and I borrow mostly ebooks, so I only go a few times a year. 😕
2) 2
3) ebooks
4) No, the beauty of borrowing electronically is that your books automatically return on the due date. Plus, you get notifications when the loan is about to end. No stress no fuss!
5) 1
6) The Priory of the Orange Tree...which I ended up buying. 😆

I usually don‘t jump all over a book by an author unknown to me, but I‘ve been keeping my eye on this one for several months and took the plunge. I‘ve been looking for a big, epic fantasy, and this beauty is right up my alley. Fingers crossed that I like it!
