Got sucked into the Bridgerton craze while recuperating from emergency bowel surgery. So far so good.

Think I will be keeping this series after tomorrow (which is National Clean Out Your Bookcase Day). Love this series and was so happy to have found it. Saddened to hear that the author is battling cancer at the moment. Sending her happy vibes and thoughts of warm comforting bowls of noodles

Watched Shadowlands last night with the hubby (if you haven‘t seen, I highly recommend the version with Sir Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger) before settling down to read this. This week was the 10th anniversary of my Oma‘s passing and I‘m finding it a little hard. Perhaps this will help.

I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but then again I have a sick sense of humour and find true crime fascinating. I also work in the prison system so I understand the authors dark sense of humour and her “female in a male dominated job” life. Her style of writing was informative but not condescending making it easy to read and understand.

Picked this up because I needed something meaningful in my life right now. Something that questions and enlightens. Think this might just do the trick

Found a new series that I just can‘t seem to put down. Picked up numbers 3-5 at my bookstore but held off starting them before I ordered 1 & 2. I have to start at the beginning of a series (I‘m slightly OCD) but binge read them. Bummed that now I have to wait a few days before number 6 arrives. But they say anticipation makes it taste that much better! Also, the goth in me squeals every time I look on the covers to see the skulls “hidden” there

Thoroughly enjoying this series. Picked it up on a whim but now can‘t put them down. Read until my eyes bleed but in an hour, I‘m picking it back up for more. Kinda like Chinese food, an hour later you‘re hungry for more!

Finally finished this one. Another hit for the Library Lovers series. With working two jobs and maintaining a household, I don‘t have much time to read but I try to carve out time for my cozy crimes. I really enjoy the small town atmosphere and the craftnoon ladies. I wish I had something like that in BFE Missouri!

Haven‘t been on here in awhile. I just haven‘t felt like reading, which isn‘t like me. I can usually be found with a book in my hand but lately I think the stress of having a full time job and a part time job and a household to take care of I finally catching up with me. I think I will spend sometime tonight enjoying this one

I‘ll say this about it, truly a story of a megalomaniac child molester. Warren Jeff should have been castrated as soon possible and been given a directive to have no contact with the outside world from his prison cell. To think that he still holds sway over the “church” is a joke. That “church” is simply a cult that segregated women and allows pedophiles to run rampant.
