Lovely feel good romantic comedy with a great cast of characters.
My husband is actually really enjoying listening to these romantic comedies with me, a half an hour every night. He‘s requested another for our next book!

I‘m not sure. There are definitely nuggets that will stay with me. However, as a book, I didn‘t find it flowed and I‘m honestly not sure what the overarching message was. But Glennon is an excellent narrator and reads it really well.

I picked up these two at the bookshop today. Been wanting to read the new TJ Klune because I adore Cerulean Sea. The Donna Tartt book is one I know a few students claim as one of their favourite books so I‘m intrigued to read it.

This was not what I expected. I nearly gave up halfway through when I was bored of whiny teenage nonsense. But then there‘s a twist. Actually ended up quite dark. But good. and so ends my adventures into the old kingdom, Abhorsen is still my favourite of them all.

ozma.of.oz Did you know that he‘s publishing a new Old Kingdom book next month? It‘s a prequel to Sabriel. 2mo

I love this continuation from Lirael, it‘s well written and a superb magical story. It does deal with essentially power in death so does get a bit dark, but not too bad. I love it.

I first read this a long time ago and I thought I remembered it, but on re-reading it I realised I actually remembered very little. But I did remember that Lirael is a magical librarian in a library full of not just books... It‘s a great story of magic and drama.

Managed to get the whole old kingdom series on kindle a while ago when they were 99p each. I‘ve not had much time for reading recently but have enjoyed working through a chapter or two a night of this. It‘s just such amazing world building.

Eggs Thanks for joining in 👏🏻📚👃 3mo
tpixie @Mrs_B yes! Hmm 🤔 Well if they sell over-the-counter steroid nasal spray‘s those help with stuffiness ( and runny, itchy sneezing). And plain antihistamines help with runny itchy sneezy nose, but not stuffy. Glad the antihistamines are working! We are heading into peak weed season this next weekend /month. 🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀 3mo

I am now actually obsessed with Mrs Hinch. I have four zoflora types and I did actually clean my sink tonight with “cliff the cif” and a “minkeh” cloth. 😂
I found it fascinating to read a story of how viral fame can change someone‘s life. For better and for worse. Trolls are just horrible. Makes me SO grateful Litsy very rarely has any issues.

magyklyXdelish Litsy is the only social media I‘ve seen that‘s full of genuine love and free of drama and hate. I joined just before the lockdown hit last year and it was a saving Grace for me ♥️ 4mo

It‘s hard not to love Mrs Hinch. She is so open about her own struggles with mental and physical health, and using cleaning as a tool to cope with her struggles.
