I‘ve been working on my book journal the last week or 2, I work on it at slow times so it‘s taken a bit. It‘s not fancy but it will work.
Best of is for 4-5 ⭐️ reads
Not Great is for DNF or 1 ⭐️ reads
Goals are things I would like to accomplish with my reading this year, yes the sticker has one of my goals on it 😊 another goal is to actually remember to use this journal LOL 😆

mrp27 Looks great! 1w
Nute Very nice! I hope that you do remember to use. That‘s my problem with planners and bullet journals. I go strong for a little bit in the beginning and then fall by the wayside for the remainder of the year. Good luck! 1w

So finally getting to my first new book of the year. Maybe I‘ll be able to focus and concentrate enough to actually finish it. I haven‘t been able to stay focused enough to finish anything. I‘ve let my Libby borrows expire and the physical book just sits by my bed, I haven‘t even looked at the ebook in a while. I‘ll get back to it eventually.

DivineDiana I think this will hold your attention. ❤️ 1w
OrangeMooseReads @DivineDiana I hope so 😊 1w
LiteraryinLawrence I hear you with having trouble focusing. I basically read nothing from June to November. Don‘t push it and do what you‘re drawn to. Books will be there when you‘re ready! 1w
Suzze I went almost a year and a half where I read only about 20 books. I think I‘m finally past it now and have read 5 books so far this month. 1w

Picked this up at Target last night. I‘ve looked at this journal and journals similar to this several times over the years.
I need to have that outlet again and having a jumping off place is always helpful.

Another excellent collection of poetry. This one didn‘t feel as wow as previous collections that may have just been me.
I love that she dedicates the book to Persephone.

I knew I wouldn‘t get any books for Christmas (bro &SIL didn‘t exchange and told parent not to buy me anything, told Man Cub I wanted a carpet cleaner) so I bought myself a couple.
Top 2 are new and the bottom 3 are used.
Seen and heard good things about Ace.
Love Amanda Lovelace.
Love Louise Erdrich (want her new one).
I‘ve heard good things about the last 2 as well.

Heartbroken this morning learning of the passing of one of my favorite authors.
A roommate/friend told me I should read The Vampire Lestat and I was hooked. I started following Ms Rice on social media and discover she was a wonderful person as well as writer.
I wish peace and comfort to her family and friends.

CBee I was so sad to hear this 😢 1mo

Can writers stop with the crazy obsessive ex trope? Also the delusional woman trope? I‘m tired of reading suspense/thrillers that are just a woman the has become obsessed with the man who is married and has ended the affair blah blah blah 😒
Why are women writing women like this?
Long review short I got bored and annoyed with this.
I recommend passing on this.

This sounded like a Holmes knock off. That‘s not a horrible thing.
The writing was tolerable and the story was good. I feel like it could have been flushed out a bit more.
This is the first in a series. I will venture back to the series but I‘m not in a hurry to read book 2 right now. 3 ⭐️

The Sandman | Lars Kepler

I wasn‘t aware this was a part of a series when I started it. That being said it can be read as a stand alone. Two siblings went missing 15 years ago; today one of them is found a live, wandering, and sick. Where has he been and is his sister still alive?
The suspense is good and not too contrived or forced. The story moves well. There are some trigger warnings. The writing is good.
I plan to read more within this series. 4 ⭐️

I realized that this book is part of a series 🤦🏼‍♀️ it‘s a character series so I‘m not lost or jumping in the middle of anything. Similar to ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo‘ series except this book hasn‘t referenced anything from previous stories as of yet.

Crazeedi I've read the first couple from this series 3mo
Tera0707 I started with that book too, but I was glad that I didn‘t have to have read the first ones in order to know what was going on. But this one should definitely be read before Lazarus. Other than that, I think the others can be read as a stand-alone. Sandman definitely started my love of Lars Kepler. I‘m reading The Hypnotist right now ☺️ 3mo
OrangeMooseReads @Tera0707 good to know. I‘m definitely going to pick up others in the series. 3mo

An excellent continuation of ‘The Silence of the Girls‘ . Well written with some developing depth of character and story.
I kind of hope she continues with the story so that the character can become deeper and the story more evolved. I enjoy Baker‘s writing style and the voice she gives her characters.

Attempted to start ‘The Scarlet Letter‘ today but that lasted about 15-20 minutes before I noped that and went with the tagged book. So far interesting. I‘m waiting for a big big twist to happen.
If the office was anything like today I‘ll get a lot of time to listen. I‘m a blue thinker/person in a deeply red area. 😵‍💫🙄🤯

Along the line of T.H.U.G.
Good writing, good story line, keeps you engaged and keeps you caring about the characters and about the subject.
It‘s an important subject that isn‘t going away and it shouldn‘t ever go away. There should be as much attention brought to until it stops happening.

I liked this. I wanted to slap Claire and Jamie in the beginning.
Their love is sweet and strong and (to me) exists only within the covers of a book (and my imagination). I love their love and passion. Gabaldon does a great job of writing this. I still want more depth in the characters. They have it, it‘s there but Gabaldon isn‘t exposing it. I need to have it exposed.
