Smrloomis Oooh so hope this one is good 🤞🏽 I have it on my TBR (even though romance isn‘t usually my thing). Curious to hear how it is! 2d

Haunted Richmond: The Shadows of Shockoe | Scott Bergman, Sandi Bergman
post image
Pickpick

My cat decided to walk in front of me taking the pic, so.

This “virtual” tour of haunted places in Shockoe Bottom was very informative! I‘ve been to the Irish restaurant, and a friend once had a birthday party at that laser tag place. Now I live nearby Jefferson Park, and will absolutely be not wandering that a way after dark since I‘d rather not hear the screams of the buried. Anyway, 4.25/5, fascinating read.

I liked the first one a lot more. There were just too many plot holes, too much of Emilia jumping to conclusions, and too many times getting lost because something was edited out that shouldn‘t have been. I hope the next one is better about that. The author also promised spice and stars above did she deliver. Wouldn‘t have minded that pared down a bit for essential stuff that was lost, but c‘est la vie. 3.5/5

Hated it. There was way too much talk about food and lying and how tall Adam was and not enough plot or character development. Everybody was bland, there was no story besides “Olive lies, fake dates Adam, and no one can communicate”. I only read it bc my sister asked me to annotate it, since she also hated it. Also it‘s Reylo fanfic, and I‘m not here for it.

This book hurt me, and I‘d like to thank it for that. Not many things I read this year were 5 star reads, but I‘d consider this book as one. It‘s a tragedy, but I was allowed to forget that in the brief happiness Frances has, even surrounded by the horror she‘d endured. And the prose is beautiful. 10/10

Oooh hoo hoo, I‘ve needed a palette cleanser after what I‘ve been reading recently and stars above, I *devoured* this one. I‘m a sucker for anything witchy, and throw in some demons, a curse, and a murder mystery - 4.5 stars. DELICIOUS. Also, it made me miss Italy so much. 😥

I have been to Alaska. I love it up there. My boyfriend and I plan to move there eventually. This book didn‘t do it justice, and I didn‘t even have a good time reading it. The characters were annoying, and while I‘m all for a cheesy romance, both of the stories were very creepy and I absolutely would‘ve pepper sprayed at least one person in both towns. And also pressed charges.

#wintergames #mistletoemaniacs

MsRadioSilence An edit: I‘ve thought better and this book deserves a .25 star rating courtesy of Storygraph. I want the time I wasted reading this book back, thanks. 1mo

I looooved this movie. Also, it takes place around and during Christmas, so like Die Hard, I‘m gonna count this one as a Christmas movie. Even my boyfriend liked it, despite finding Far From Home incredibly boring. 10/10, I can‘t wait to watch it again when it‘s on Disney+.

What happens when two sisters (the older pregnant, the younger getting over a bad break up) meet two guys (one a rockstar and the other a high school love)? Romance, I suppose.

I know I‘m a fan of easy romances, but I‘m getting a little frustrated with the lack of diversity in these books. I‘ve got one more drugstore paperback to read before moving on to my non-Christmassy tbr.

I‘m not a Wiccan, but it was lovely to read for different ideas. A lot of them were group oriented, though, and I‘ll have to do more research into the origins, but this book is a good starting place!

I would like everyone to meet Aayla, the newest addition to our household! This sweet baby was rescued from a trash bag by a local couple who rehomes strays, and she‘s so, so precious. She‘s still getting used to the apartment (and her new name - her dad is a massive Star Wars nerd) but she and Cozzy are getting along so far (minimal hissing through the doors)!

This book was okay, probably because I‘m used to reading more diversity. I might backlist Sarah Morgan, though, because it‘s been a minute since I read a book in (almost) one sitting. Anyway, LOTS of points with this one, haha. It was a SNOWy FAMILY CHRISTMAS so many, many, *many* #wgwordsearch points.

I gave this book 4 stars but the ending of the like…underlying plot was super unsatisfying. I like Hollis and Marek as characters though, and it was a lot better than I was expecting from a drug store paperback. Maybe I‘ll check out the first few in the series…

My Friend Dahmer | Derf Backderf
post image
Panpan

Not a fan. So he had a bad home life and every adult around him failed him. So he was an outcast and an oddball and only had friends bc he was ableist and made fun of people. I‘m glad Backderf has sympathy for Dahmer, bc you‘ll be hard pressed to find any from me. This book was way too apologetic, and not towards the people whose lives were ruined bc of one man. No thanks, I‘d prefer not to sympathize with someone who brutally murdered others.

MsRadioSilence I‘m not sure what I was expecting, but I‘m just really not here for sympathizing with a serial killer who knew he had problems and, if the Notes are to be believed, did have at least one person trying to help. Anyways. I need a palate cleanser. 2mo
MsRadioSilence ALSO ALSO the author tried to make a joke bc he once talked to Dahmer dressed as H**ler and never once mentioned that that‘s antisemitic as f*ck and he was wrong for it? And all the ableism jokes he also didn‘t think to apologize for in 2012 when this was published? Dude. What the f*ck did I just waste my time on?? 2mo
