I got one more book in right under the wire. It was not intentional, but this was such an easy read and it is a quiet evening, I just kept going.

Enjoyed this one, you know what you are in for and pretty much know you are guaranteed a happy ending 😁👍

Happy New Year!! 🍾🎉

The only bad thing about starting a brand new series is having to wait for the next one 😢. Can not wait to see what Alex Stern gets into next.

This one did get me across the finish line for my 2019 Goodreads Challenge.

Waiting for Tom Hanks | Kerry Winfrey

This was a cute, quick read that, even though predictable, did have some good dialogue and even made me LOL several times. Plus, Tom Hanks has always been my “ideal”, so I can relate 😁🎬

Good Omens | Gaiman, Neal

This one fell off my radar a while ago, but fully admit seeing all the promotion around the Amazon series pulled me back in. And I decided I would not watch until I read the book, and that was really hard given how much I love all things David Tennant. This was a great read and I should have read it long ago.

This one threw me at first, I was not sure I was going to like Eleanor, but I was wrong. 😁 What a lovely read about how you can‘t let your past and who you think you are define you - we can always set forth a new path. Great read.

I knew this would have me shedding a tear or two, but also knew I would probably love it. And I did. Just the kind of read I needed 👍

What a great read. I loved the story of Poppy and her family. It made me laugh and think and appreciate the love of family.

Been waiting a while for this one to come available at the library.

My reading buddy is not nearly as excited as I am about it. 🐶📚 #dogsoflitsy

Shakespearience That one is definitely on my TBR list. My reading buddy isn‘t much better...then again I fall asleep while reading most nights so I guess I can‘t say anything 😅 7mo

I really enjoyed the first book in this series. I kept seeing everyone talking about the series and had to give it a shot. I loved the fast paced dialogue between the characters. I have already requested the second book from the library. 👍

Ok, so I trudged my way through this one. I was ready to walk away but kept on since it was a pick for #pop19, and I am determined 😁. It may not be fair to “pan” this book, but I just did not find it enjoyable. There was nothing to like about 99% of the characters, there was only one I felt I could even tolerate. I found it to be slow moving and anticlimactic once the plot was revealed. I was really expecting more.

Fun book. Pretty quick read. Need to keep this author in the rotation.

Ok, about 100 pages in and seems like it is taking some time for the story to develop. Is it worth sticking with? Does the story pick up? This is the first time I have anything from this author so not sure if this is typical of their style of writing. Thanks!! 👍📚

Slajaunie I like this author but I have not read this book. 9mo
Caksf Just finished it! It took awhile for me to get into, but once I hit 30 percent on kindle, I could not stop reading it 9mo
Maman929 Thanks @Caksf! I will keep at it 👍 9mo

I did not expect to love this book as much as I did. I loved Will and her insecurities, but yet not compromising on who she is. I loved her love of her best friend and how she fought for that friendship. And yet went beyond her comfort to form new friendships.

My main motivation for reading this was because I wanted to watch the Netflix movie. Now I am afraid watching the movie might spoil what I have created in my own head 😁

JenlovesJT47 Same here! I‘m currently reading it and I think I sometimes make the mistake of watching the movie too soon after finishing the book, which kind of ruins the experience for me. Oh well! Can‘t stay away 😆 10mo

The One and Only | Emily Giffin

I wanted to like this book. It has everything I love - Texas and football. It even has some pretty good details that you pick up if you live in the DFW area. But then it gets weird and the choices the main character starts to make, makes me feel icky.

And I think I remember why I had not read one of this authors books in a while. Life‘s too short to read books I am not enjoying - moving on to the next one. 👍😁

I loved this series and was glad for the happy ending. I will say there were times it slowed down a little much, but it was worth trodding through those moments to get to the end. Great read. 👍😁

This one has been on my TBR pile for a while. It started out slow, but I stuck with it and it ended up being really great. Had a twist I did not see coming, but should have expected.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It was very sweet, although I had it figured out pretty early on how her letters got out. Curious if it is worth reading the other books in the series.

Another one for the reading challenge. Book with “love” in the title. Don‘t read a ton of YA, but am excited for an excuse to read this one 😜

Finished this one on the way into work today. Fun read, did have me guessing until the end. I must say, I did expect another twist on the last page 😁
