This book was a so-so for me. It wasn‘t bad , just found a it slow read and repetitive. It was another knocked off my TBR shelf thanks to #roll100

Seems appropriate to take its picture by the universe affirmation deck cards that I have suck to my headboard.

Thanks @PuddleJumper once again for the rolls this month … moving on to the next one

Another thing we love in this house just as much as Dinosaurs is Ramen! I think I have the only seven year old that over the last few Christmases has asked Santa for his own ramen bowls, spoons and a ramen cookbook. As well as bubble tea cup, sushi making tools and supplies. So we have been enjoying reading this manga. Learning about different types of ramen as we read along. 🍜🍱🍣🧋

DinoMom @LeahBergen I will have to check these out! Ramen is such an art form! 1mo

Dragon Teeth: A Novel | Michael Crichton

This book was not what I was expecting. I didn‘t dislike it but feel the synopsis on the back led me to believe it would be more of a palaeontology adventure , but it was more Wild West focused.

And yes, those are a bunch of kids palaeontologist tools and fossils. My Litsy handle is DinoMom for a reason. 😜🦖🦕

This was also the book for the last roll of the month for #roll100 hosted by @PuddleJumper

This sits in the middle of a pick and so-so for me. The only thing that didn‘t make it 100% pick for me was it didn‘t feel complete. I enjoyed the writing and the character development but just wanted more at the end. 3/5

Just finished the book The Ravens. It was the selection for the first roll for #roll100 of this month. hosted by @PuddleJumper . It was just okay for me and was a slow read , not sure due to the book or my mood this past week. (Insert tired working mom emoji here) . The tagged book is the selection for roll 2 this month. Another one that has been on my shelf for a long time :)

I rarely listen to audiobooks, but the wonderful @DebbieGrillo recommended listening to this one at our last bookclub. She wasn‘t wrong! This book is so great in audio format. I would have enjoyed this book either way but listening to it brought all the feels. I laughed , I cried…. This book is simple and layered all at the same time. It is the most joyful book I have “read” in a long time! 4/5 ☺️

Moving on to the next roll (#84) for #roll100 hosted by @PuddleJumper The first roll didn‘t go as planned. Oh, I read the book & then realized it‘s part of a series & it hooked me just enough to want to know more. So, I ordered the 2nd one! This challenge was suppose to help reduce my TBR not add to it! 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

Here is the first book for the first roll #96

Thank you @FantasyChick for the #creepychristmas package. I am really looking forward to the book. The face masks definitely falls under creepy when you put them on. It made my skin feel lovely, but my husband said he couldn‘t even look at me and my son this morning when we had them on as he said he felt we looked like characters out of a horror film. Lol
We had a lot of laughs with them.

Thanks @teebe for hosting

This is what happens when someone gives you a gift certificate to book outlet and you hit up the clearance section. The boxes showed up at the door today and my hubby was like … “ please tell me those are books for other people and not you” So I just walk past him , slap him on the butt and say “you can just carry them up to my book case please” 🤣 In fairness , there is 4 or 5 in there for my son, so not all for me.

Well, it‘s travel day. Heading back home. Didn‘t even open the book I brought with me as I was so busy. Maybe on the plane home, however I think much sleeping will be happening , since we started out traveling day 1:50am ! So proud of the team and what they accomplished. End my trip with a permanent souvenir of the adventure.

This trip has been so jammed packed I have not had time to read but today was day off from surgery (back at it tomorrow) so we played tourist and spent the day at the national park and saw some amazing plant and animal life. My favourite were the Leaf Cutter Ants, I could have watched them for hours. However the sloths were pretty cool to see. This baby one was so freaking cute!
