Author delves into the events of what she calls the long year of 1774 beginning with the Boston Tea Party and its effects leading up to Lexington and Concord. Lots of in depth well -researched information. Not a light read for sure. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

1- Unreliable characters are fine if it is done well.
2- My bookish shirts or my Kindle
3- TheDresden Files is a series I think people of varying tastes could enjoy. It is a fun series.

#Two4Tuesday Thanks for the tag @Eadieb !

1- My goal was 125 books. I am on 171. I wanted to work on books I own this year. I own 59 of the 169 read so far.
2- Too many. I have 4 more letters for LitsyAtoZ. Empire of the Vampire, A Terrible Fall of Angels, The Missing Sister, Kingdom of the Cursed, Steelstriker, Suicide Forest and The Righteous are high on my list.

I am late posting so if anyone wants to play, consider yourself tagged!

167 of 2021. The midwest is plagued by a string of murders which lead up to the last one in Minnesota. At the scene they find a girl soaked in blood. Could she be the killer or is there some other explanation? This was a little anticlimactic. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

BookDragonNotWorm I agree, but it had such promise though! 2w

📖 tagged book and False Witness on audio.
🍁Looking forward to a four day weekend.
📚Characters who do dumb things over and over. Even when everyone around them tells them why it is a bad idea. Also when the author mentions something then never brings it up again. What was the point?

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 Yes. I‘ve only experienced that with one book. This Thing Called You by Ernest Holmes 1mo
DarkMina @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 I haven‘t heard of that book. What is it about? 1mo
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 @DarkMina it‘s pretty much the only book in the “spiritual/religion” genre that has ever really made sense to me. It talks about our relationship with our personal versions of God and that He/ She/They/It isn‘t some separate being that that guides us through life. Our personal versions of God, are in us. It also allows the reader to ponder ideas such as “Love is my religion.” “Courage is my religion.” “Kindness is my religion.” etc. (edited) 1mo
