So glad this book is done. I should of DNF'D it but thought it would get better. The writing was so dry. It read like a research paper you would write for school.

I would have liked more substance. It just feel short. It also ended with some questions left to be answered.

4⭐ Holy Crap on a cracker! This book was so weird but it intrigued me, so I kept on reading and glad I did. Can't say much because it would ruin it. One thing though, it's considered Horror, but to me, it's more suspense.

I don't think there is a better storyteller than Barbara Taylor Bradford. I love her books. This was a prequel to the Harte Family Saga. It published on December 28, 2021. Go get it. You want be disappointed.

God Hears Her, A Joyful Christmas

This is a short devotional for the month of December. Each one took maybe 3 minutes to read. It's a morning and evening one. It brings you back to the true meaning of Christmas. I can see myself reading this every December.

Thanks to Netgalley for the Kindle Version of the book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Facing Your Finances by Jessica Rohrer not listed in database.
With everything costing more these days and no sight of stuff going down in the future, I decided to read this book. It is very practical. Rohrer breaks it all down into layman terms with easy to learn statements that help you. I read it because, in the past, when I tried to stick to a budget it never worked. I think with what I learned, I will be able to stick to one now.

Since the new year is upon us, I decided to read this book bc who doesn't need to take a look at their finances. Well, maybe if you're a millionaire you don't need to ☺️

What a real crazy person! This guy killed as a 15 year old. He was then sentenced to a mental hospital. He was eventually released. What happened after is unbelievable.

The Godmothers: A Novel | Camille Aubray

Not in majority, but I didn't like this book. It's not holding my interest. Maybe because I have been so busy with holiday. Putting aside and will try again sometime in the future.

I haven't fallen in love with a character from a book in a long while, but I have now. Miss Molly Gray is such a delight. I gave the book 4 1/2 ⭐ for the simple reason, at the end, Prose added a few pages, I wish she hadn't. The book, to me, would have been a 5⭐. Pick up this book January 4, 2022.

Thanks to Netgalley, the publisher, and Prose for the Kindle Version of the book.

I don't know why I love reading about the Holocaust and all aspects of WWII rather in Europe or Asia, but I do. This book was so good. I rooted for the Rabinowitz family. I cried. I cheered. I hoped. This was so well written and researched.

Love this cozy mystery. Murder, romance, and baking. All good combos. Made me laugh out loud and my husband just looked at me and shook his head. He doesn't read (I know, how crazy not to read 🤷), so he will never understand the concept of reading a book and laughing out loud☺️

Loved this cozy mystery. Perfect month to read as it involves witches, warlocks, fairies, werewolves, vampires and best of all a talking cat. Know I will have to get the rest of the series..that always happens, doesn't it🤷

This was book 7 in the #BookSpin #BookSpinBingo. I really liked the first book: The Hitler Years Triumph, but this second book, I had to DNF. There were missing letters in words on over page! Ugh! I received this ARC from Netgalley.

Here's the thing, I have no idea what I just read. It sure is a murder mystery or a psychological thriller. In fact, what the summary of the book says is not even what the book is about. I think one of two things happened: 1) The person that wrote the summary didn't read the book or 2) the person read some other book entirely different from what I read.

Thanks to Goodreads for the Kindle Version of the book.
