The stack of books I‘m hoping to read/start for #JoyousJanuary! The Larson is for a bookclub the rest are just for fun. Hoping to get down to Ohio to visit my brother in law and his family next weekend so will have lots of road trip time for reading then!

Andrew65 A good stack, good luck 😊👍 3d

1. My aunt, grandma, husband, kiddo, and myself all exchange books with each other on Christmas Eve!
2. My boys and I read the tagged every year before putting on pjs and going out to drive around and look at Christmas lights.
3. My son gets new pjs and a stuffed animal on Christmas Eve every year before reading and watching Charlie Brown Christmas. The pjs always match the dog‘s new ones 😂

My TBR for #WinterGames2021 is set! Let‘s go #TeamGameSleighers! @StayCurious if something is both a holiday/winter read AND on our TBR list so we count just the 25 for the theme or the 15 for being a tbr read?

StayCurious Count the highest points first. So if a book is holiday / wintery you‘d get 25 points, even if it‘s on your TBR or is an impulse read 2mo
mabell Not a Creature Was Stirring was cute 😊 Have you read others in the Paws and Claws series? 2mo

Day 2 of #litsysummercamp finds gorgeous 68 degree weather with a clear sky and slight breeze at Camp Blue Water! It‘s the best type of weather for grabbing a few pages outside while waiting for my son‘s sports discovery class to wind up.

ImperfectCJ Sports discovery class...when my kids did a class with that name it was four or five sports that they got to try out. Is that what your son's is? 6mo
PathfinderNicole @ImperfectCJ it‘s exactly that! It‘s the more “unusual” sports like lacrosse, rugby, archery, and volleyball so it was ones that they typically wouldn‘t be able to try in a traditional setting 6mo

Finished this totally amazing book while waiting for my son‘s youth circuit class to finish. A novel about the rivalry between Mrs Astor and Alva Vanderbilt in Gilded Age New York but also touched on women‘s rights (and lack thereof) during the time period and on mother-daughter relationships. Amazingly written and well researched!

Finished this short book on PBS Masterpiece while waiting for my son to do his ELA state testing. While I enjoyed it enough, I really don‘t think I‘d have finished if I didn‘t enjoy Masterpiece shows so much. It really needed editing and was a bit dry and tended to repeat things that didn‘t need repeated.

1. Yes! Fun fact: audiobooks is the only way my husband can enjoy a book as he ALWAYS falls asleep reading paper ones. It‘s actually a little impressive.
2. It‘s the best way for me to read. I can‘t concentrate in total silence I need some background noise (though nothing with lyrics or talking). I have different Spotify playlists based on what I‘m reading.

I really love this series and this book was no exception! My one complaint would be Detective Estrada absolutely hating Gemma for no apparent reason. It doesn‘t add anything to the story and, as there has never been a true reason stated to the hatred, just detracts from everything else.
