Starting this next. As an American, I have always been fascinated by the Royal Family.
Oh, my! I did not see those test coming. So many twist. One thing that got on my nerves was the repeated stuff about her being an acholic. Anyone reading the book could figure that out within the first couple chapters.
@mom_of_4 it's good. If you like thrillers, check it out.
Finished for #20in4

Late on review.
Why I get Library books when I have books to review for Netgalley, I will never understand 🤪
I enjoyed this WWII Historical Fiction book. It was well researched, but some of the information was repeated and a little technical, still a good book though. It has a little thrilleresque, a little coziness, and some romance.

I feel asleep twice reading this book last night and once today. I don't think it's me, because I read nonfiction. I think it's just very boring to me.

I should have DNF'd, but everyone has raved about it, so I finished it finally.
I can't figure out what all the hype is about this book. I didn't care for it. It wasn't a very thrilling or suspenseful book to me. The premise of it was good, but it seemed monotonous. If it's on your TBR List, keep it there, because it has gotten great reviews from others. It just wasn't what I was expecting, after all the reviews.
📚 Happy Reading 🙂📚
Interesting. I would have enjoyed it more if Pupetta's story would have been told in one or two chapters instead of interspersed throughout.
Women in the Mafia are treated like second class citizens. Only way out is in a police car or death. There is no divorce for women.

Stole this from Goodwill Librarian on FB.
Love this quote. It's so true!
'The Journey of a Lifetime Starts With the Turning of a Page' ❤️📚❤️
I couldn't put this down. Murder, conspiracy, money laundering, Putin, Russia, 2016 U.S. Presidential election, and fearing for life. Reads like a legal thriller, even though it's non-fiction.
Won from Goodreads
Quite interesting. Learned stuff I never knew.
There was stuff that was a little boring to me, but the stuff I found out outweighed the boring stuff.
I had the Kindle ARC and it didn't have pictures. Would have liked to see some of the skirt designs.

I watched a special the other night on Princess Diana and realized I never read her story. I found it quite interesting but sad. To see where she came from, what she faced in the Royal family, how she overcame all that, and ending up the Princess of the World.
Received this ARC from Netgalley. Going to try to read two books at once. This one on my Kindle and Diana: Her True Story in hardback from my local library. Never read two at a time, but I see y'all read multiple books at a time, so I am going to give it a try ☺️
I have been wanting to read this forever. I watched a special on her the other night and picked it up from my local library to finally read.
Well, I am calling the month of August. I won't finish another book today. Not a bad month:
Stay Awake 5⭐
Eye for Eye 4⭐
The Stationery Shop 2⭐
The Book Of Cold Cases 5⭐
The Case of the Murderous Dr Cream 3⭐
A Darker Reality 4⭐
American Demon 4⭐
All Dressed Up 2.5⭐
Thanks to @Clwojick for hosting #AugustARC
I got some I had a while off my list🙂
Ugh! I hated Becca, the MC, so much I really didn't care what happened. Plus, the ending was so ignorant. It was like Gagnon didn't know how to wrap up everything between her husband and her.
I should have just bailed, but others really enjoyed it. Just goes to show everyone reads a different book with the same title.
I have no idea what my time is on reading. My stopwatch deleted my time. 2 books done though.
Actually finished the Saturday morning, but wasn't feeling well.
If you like True Crime, you should read this. It's about the torso murders in Cleveland during the 1930's and Eliot Ness' involvement in trying to solve.
Ness thought he solved the case but swore all his close people to secrecy. No one has ever told who he thought it was.
It's like Jack the Ripper. We may never know for sure.
I read bc I am disabled and it gives me something to do other than house stuff and watching TV (which has nothing on good anyway, except for Jeopardy 😜)
My whole family read, so it's just something I grew up doing and never stopped.
Whenever I can. Usually the afternoons, evenings and night. I try to get a little housework done each day, then read rest of day.

Starting this one tonight. Sounds interesting 🤔
It's About Elliott Ness and the hunt for America's Jack the Ripper. I hope this True Crime book doesn't disappoint me like the Case of the Murderous Dr Cream did.
Had high hopes for this book. It fell way short
I enjoyed the part about the wall, when it was built and tore down. I remember that time from the '80's when our U.S. President Regan told Gorbachev to 'Tear that wall down!'
I say skip.it, unless you are really into history bc it reads like a history textbook.
It published August 23,2022.
Finished my second book in the #AwesomeAugust Readathon. It was another good one in this series. It focused on Elena's grandfather that she hardly knows. If you like historical mysteries, and you are looking for one to read, you should give this one a try.
Also another knocked after my #ARCAugust Readathon.
Yes, I tagged the book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. I read it in my early 20's and still remember it.
Best part of the week, any day I get to read during the day, just not at night. Worst part of week, any day I am not able to read, due to being sick and brain not working so I can't concentrate.
Thanks @EadieB for the tag and @Eggs for doing this one today.

I didn't know rather to pan this or so-so it. I ended up with a so-so, solely based on the beginning and last part. The middle really drug for me.
But, I got one book done for the #Mskoolreadathon
I feel like I am not making any progress with this book. Yesterday, I was so busy. Planning today, after church, to do nothing but read☺️📚☺️
