Lyrical interwoven tales about Eastern European creatures of myth. Equal parts wonderful and unsettling.

Nothing I can say will do this memoir justice - powerful and beautiful told with anger and uncertainty and hope, I will be thinking of Clemantine Wamariya and her journey for a very long time. #africa #arc #penguinrandomhouse #firsttoread

AceOnRoam Sounds really good. I can't find this title on NetGalley but I'm sure my library will get it soon. 2y

Oh dear. I have no doubt I am coming late to the party on this one but recovering from a minor medical thing and cruising around on the iPad looking at all things books and just discovered Juniper Books. This could be a problem considering all the books I want equal a California home mortgage 😉. #juniperbooks

Mdargusch It‘s that free shipping piece. If you don‘t spend $150 then the shipping is so expensive. 2y

Mel @bookloo I have had my eye on so many of these - I tend to be more of a hard copy reader but couldn‘t pass up the deals on these 😉 2y
Jess7 Is Manhattan Beach a Kindle Deal today? It‘s showing up the regular kindle price of $14.99 on my app. 😞 2y

Thank you, thank you, thank you @AThousandLives87 ! It is like you literally reached into my brain and pulled everything out! The books are all fabulous - I plan to take them all on vacation with me next week, I love peppermint bark, and the grammar sign is awesome! It is on my office desk right now - 👍 to your stalking skills and finding out I was an editor! I hope you have a wonderful holiday ❤️
