Ok people. I am getting my literary life together; trying to read allllll the books I missed last year (and before that!) that sounded really really good!

Any recs are WELCOME! Bonus points if it‘s not on my thousand book list. What are your favourites? I‘ll try anything! ❤️

Richryan52 @Rebonkula At the risk of sounding immodest, if you are a Sherlock Holmes fan, consider The Vatican Cameos. I‘m biased because I wrote it 2y
Rebonkula @Richryan52 don‘t be ridiculous! That‘s not immodest at all! Thank YOU for actually writing my rec! I‘ll add it to the list! ☺️ 2y
Richryan52 @Rebonkula I hope that you enjoy it 2y
monalyisha I think I spy “Priestdaddy” on there! Just read that. And when you‘re done, start it over again. 😅😍 I loved it SO. MUCH. (It‘s also great on audio!) 2y

Reviewsbylola That used to be me. 😂😂 I now try and be more strict about my library hauls because the pressure got to be too much! 3y
Rebonkula @Reviewsbylola That's exactly what I was trying to do. So I went through what I had a couple days ago and felt so good returning the ones that no longer immediately interested me. And then I realized that there were..ah...nine waiting. Groundhog Day nightmares. Lol (edited) 3y

I don't even know what to say. My heart is full of all the emotions. This book was amazing and sad and hopeful. I love family legacy books but this one was like a blanket every time I opened it. I felt like a part of the family. I often found myself hoping for good things to happen and grieving for deaths and poor choices. If you haven't read this, please please do.

This was such a beautifully written book. It has the kind of prose and flow that leave you breathless. I felt like I was suddenly missing something significant from my life when the audio ended. The piano interludes in between audio parts were simply wonderful and I was absolutely spellbound the entire time. #beautifulbooks

Thanks to the creative, targeted marketing of the alcohol industry, alcohol has a prominent, stylish presence in the lives of women today. For the coming-of-age woman alcohol is now flirty and fun.
