Ugh, this book does NOT match this awesome view. I just couldn‘t keep going with it. 64% in and it‘s going nowhere! The MC is just super annoying. One page she loves her old flame, the next page she hates him and then it‘s constantly going back and forth. There‘s no movement! She‘s so conflicted but she gets no sympathy from me. I have a feeling it will end with them FINALLY talking and all this back and forth was for nothing. #annoyed

llwheeler That is a nice view! Hope the next one is more fun! 2mo

Moved to another building for work and I‘m missing my lunches with @Amanda23 so I‘ve loaded the kobo app to my phone to keep me busy. This is my new reading spot. 💕

janeycanuck I recognize that view 😋 Are you reading in one of the Brody chairs? Worst name ever but I love them to death. 2mo
Erika13137 @janeycanuck omg there are so many different kinds of chairs it makes sense they‘ve named them lol. It‘s the blue swivel one with the little table attached on the 4th floor. Are you at 500? 2mo
janeycanuck @Erika13137 I‘m full-time remote but I go in once into one of the offices once a week or so. I was at 500 last week, spent most of my day in one of the chairs with the footstool and the frosted panels around it. Felt like I was in a cocoon! 2mo

I was really looking for a similar author like Alice Clayton where the books weren‘t just sexy but funny too and I think I‘ve found that with Julia Kent. This book was super entertaining and although the MC was a little annoying at times, it wrapped up so nicely. I‘d just happen to stop reading at 69% done and I‘m just like well, there‘s my Litsy photo. 😜

Finished this one with the help of a second cup of coffee and a keto pumpkin cheesecake muffin. This latest in the magical bakery mystery did not disappoint. Bailey Cates put our main character in quite a position and you couldn‘t help but feel all the emotions she was going through. Just loved it and love where it‘s going next.

Juno giving us her profile today after seeing something outside.

Really enjoyed the first book in this cozy series. I didn‘t know much about the Hungarian culture so I found all the references very interesting. The main character was very likeable and was poked fun at for having a bit of a temper. Look forward to the next one.

Juno‘s getting a good smell off this super light read that I got from the free library down the street. The main story is excellent and reminds me of my love for Paris and all the other stories were short and sweet. Great summer read and I‘ll return it to the free library so someone else can enjoy.

A little behind on my reviews...

I really tried with this one. I got about halfway through and realized I couldn‘t care less what would happen. The characters were just too depressing when they were kids and uninteresting when they got older. The pace and story just weren‘t working for me.

After our walkies, Juno and I finished this awesome read. Just a great story about the sisters (triplets) and how different their lives were and the struggles they all faced. Might be a little soap opera-y but maybe that‘s what made it so addictive. A great summer read!

Oh my goodness! What an amazing read! I could not put this book down. A great adventure for some amazing characters. I didn‘t realize the authors were married and had completed the Camino together. I found this book to be very inspirational. It‘s about finding what you didn‘t know was lost and making peace.

P.s. finished this after Juno had her bath.

Erika13137 @LibrarianRyan I thought it was only the one book. Is it only the two in the series then? 5mo
LibrarianRyan @Erika13137 There are 3 but the books don't really wrap up the central mystery. I have a feeling since they are a bit urban Fantasy, they were not selling well enough to continue the series. 5mo
Erika13137 @LibrarianRyan gotcha, thanks for letting me know. I like them cause their nice and light. Not quite a cozy mystery but very close. 5mo

Another great cottage read and another great book by Ruth! I couldn‘t put this one down. My only complaint is that her twist was almost too twisty. I had to reread it a bit and I was still confused for awhile. Still good though.

What a bummer. I don‘t think I‘ve ever panned a cozy before. Usually, there‘s a chapter or two of buildup before the murder happens, but this one happened within the first 10 pages. The MC was pretty weak. Normally, the MC is sticking their nose where they don‘t belong to solve the mystery but this one just came off as annoying. Even the other characters thought so. I also thought there‘d be more time with the dog, hence the photo. #cantwinthemall

Cottage reading for the win! This was a great autobiography. Very well paced. I always liked Michelle but now I admire her. Being in Canada, you don‘t necessarily hear about all the initiatives the Obama administration completed. I enjoyed how she told it like it was when Trump came around and wasn‘t afraid to hide her reaction on Inauguration Day.

After reading JL Picard‘s autobiography, I was feeling like some more Star Trek. I‘ve had this one from Value Village for a while and it was so good. Riker stories are always entertaining and you still got to spend time with the rest of the crew. I can‘t wait to read more by Peter David.

I like how Penny uses really intelligent characters but she always puts them in unrealistic, somewhat ridiculous scenarios. This is the first book in the trilogy and I don‘t even need to read the next two because she‘s already set it up the same way as her other series. The way the story is setup, there‘s only one way for it to end so what‘s the point of finishing when I can use that time for other books.

This one gets a corgi bum because it was so disappointing. In the last year I started running but fell into a bit of a slump. I was hoping this book would inspire me and all I got were references to statistics and other mental health resources. There were over 30 references to other sources within the first 40 pages!

If you don‘t have a good understanding of mental illness, then maybe this book will help but it‘s not what I was looking for.

AKinderman It sounds like I would have also reached for this book to get out of a slump and also would have been disappointed. I would recommend reading Haruki Murakami's book “What I Talk About When I Talk About Running“. It is a bit more inspirational and may give you that oomph. 6mo

Been awhile Litsy, Juno and I are catching up on some reviews. P.s. she‘s wearing her cone because she scratched her eye. She‘s doing okay, just a little sad with her cone on.

This book was A-mazing! It felt like you were reading an autobiography of an actual person vs. a fictional one. If you love TNG, you‘ll love this book.
