I‘m pretty excited about this challenge #pickleschallenge I have had this on my shelves for probably 15 years! Thank you for a reason to tackle it. I will definitely be more motivated with Pickles judging me. 🥰💛
3✨ I was recommended this book by a friend who really enjoyed it. I have never watched rowing when viewing the Olympics, but have a new appreciation for it after reading this. The lives of the athletes were not ideal, but they became great together.
Almost done with this year! I just need to do graduation for the seniors and then it‘s summer break time! Getting caught up on housework before that and listening to the tagged book. I had to show you my amazing shirt: “Let‘s be honest I was crazy before the chickens” 😍
DNF: I just found no joy in reading this anyone. The pervious book was difficult to get through as well. I found it to be very repetitive and there was even a part 48% in that mentioned the murdered person talking instead of Iris talking. That typo had me done with the series. So I skipped forward to see who the killer was.
5✨ Another fun installment of Bad Guys. Our hero‘s meet the bad guy and learn about other good guys.
2✨ I was having trouble focusing. There was a lot of death and magic. I feel this had more of a reflection on trying to listen to it. There was too much going on in the book and my life as I was trying to finish this series. Maybe I‘ll try this series again one day since I think my dislike for this book was more related to circumstances of the end of the school year.
✨5 I was crying, smiling, angry, and so much more through this. The story starts with Willy being evacuated from London during WW2. An older man Tom Oakley takes him in. It doesn‘t take long to see that he was brutally treated by his mother in London. Will learns about the kindness of others in his time away. Heartbreaking and heartwarming with all the feels.
4✨Okay this is the last one I finished this week I promise! Lol. Written by two writers about two writers. In the story the writers have history so we go back four years every once in a while. It is also in both of their perspectives outlining who is talking at the beginning of each chapter. They originally wrote a love story and in present day they are writing about their characters divorcing. There is tension between the characters throughout.⬇️
5✨Super cute, easy to read and have fun with graphic novel. It‘s funny and sarcastic. I‘m reading it with my four year old (not that it is tailored to younger audiences), but she is engaged and enjoying it for story time. All about four creatures that typically are labeled the bad guys. The wolf is trying to become good and dragging the others into his plans. Are they just playing good? You will have to read it to find out. 🥰
3✨I actually read this earlier this week, but life be crazy as a teacher at the end of the year. This is the second book of the trilogy so as most second books go it is average. There is adventure, betrayal, and battles. Im not one that likes war, battles, or physical conflict in a book so not for me, but enjoy the characters along with the new characters brought in making a little family. Planning on finishing the series.
Book haul from gift cards and just spoiling myself for my birthday. 🥰 The tagged in one I‘m really looking forward to. Skandar and the unicorn thief came with an enamel pin! 😍The 10th Kingdom is from that mini series in the late 90s so I‘m pretty excited about it too! 😍💛🥰 Happy reading everyone!
Listening to the tagged book cleaning up the house for my birthday celebration today. 🥰 My hubby got me chicken signs. 🤩💛
3✨ This was a hard one to read. I was not in the right mindset to read it, but appreciated all I learned about Afghanistan. Not knowing a lot about the country made it a challenging read and the content was hard emotionally to get through.
4✨ I finished this on Friday, but had a really rocky week. I really like McManus‘ writing and have enjoyed all the books I‘ve read from her so far. This one was about three cousins visiting their grandmother for the very first time. Their parents were disinherited which is the main mystery of this story. As the cousins uncover the truth they become fast friends. I wasn‘t a fan of the ending, but it was realistic.
3✨ This brings you back to the beginning of the zombie outbreak. Different characters introduced that we might see in the next one.
3✨ Follows the first book pretty closely in Lindy‘s perspective. It is written in diary format which I‘m always a fan of. B there was a bit of new content, but not much. With this I was able to successfully finish the books I had started in the month of April to give me a clean slate. Yay!
The #Roaringwolf Challenge prompts are here. Motivation coming from my birthday this coming month. Yay! As a reminder read books that fill one of the prompts and let us know by tagging myself and @Littlewolf1 to be added to our monthly drawing. Have fun and happy reading!
5✨As always Dog Man is my fun silly read of the month. I‘m almost done with the series so I‘m going to have to find something else soon! In this book motivation came from 1 Corinthians 13:11, a quote from Oscar Wilde, Frosty the snowman, and The Star Thrower. More good guys were added to the family.
4✨ For me this book didn‘t start out interesting. There was a lot of cursing and seemed like everyone was upset with everyone else. Our two mains Theo and Sydney become fast friends. Then strange stuff started happening. At first it seemed like it was racism with a mix of rich vs poor causing a bunch of people to leave their homes. Then after Sydney and Theo made some really big confessions it all went down. Whoa!
Sorry it‘s a little dark. One of the puppies woke me up a 1:30am! Grrrr… but it is giving me the chance to nearly finish my #bookspinbingo for May. The tagged is my most anticipated. I also am trying to finish three books this month so I can have a cleaner bingo card for my birthday month. 🥰 @TheAromaofBooks
3✨The last book of this series had me laughing like all Riordan books. It was really just a meh for me. Without getting into too much detail. Magnus must help his friends take down the villain of the story. It has an open ended conclusion to tie in the next series. Read for #roaringwolf History (There is a deaf character) it is also my #DoubleBookSpin for April @Littlewolf1 @TheAromaofBooks 🎧
3✨ The fourth book in the series. There is quite a bit of drama between the characters. A lot of action, and a short resolve to head into the next book.
Thank you @Endowarrior21 for all the goodies! I especially love that you made some of the items for me 🥰 And the glitter!! I especially love the glittery bookmark, “Just a girl who loves chickens” keychain, the ducks, my letter keychain, and a gorgeous book! I need to find places for all these stickers before my girls see them 🤩 Thank you @DinoMom and @ShelleyBooksie for hosting. 😊💛🐣🦆
4✨Based on Irish folk tales and stories about fairies from other locations. Mollie is the big sister of baby Thomas. He is a delightful baby, but in order to protect him from being taken by the Kinde Folk they pretend he is horrible. Being selfish as only kids can be she breaks this rule and takes the necklace from off his neck. Sure enough Thomas is taken and swapped with a changing. The changing is a miserable creature. ⬇️
4✨ I read this in almost one sitting. It was a really cute rom-com set at Christmas time. Most of the time we are at a book store which I completely enjoyed. There was quite a bit of characters, working in different locations as well that was hard at first to keep track of. Other than that I just smiled through the whole read. Read for #YABuddyRead @megnews
3✨ Packed with adventure once Jason slips into another world. He finds that no one wants to be a hero because of Maldor. The only way to defeat him is thought to be a word. There are hidden syllables everywhere. Protected by others that have to remain to protect the word collectively. He meets friends along the way, but you never really know who‘s working for Maldor. ⬇️
3✨The second book in the series did pretty well. Events in the first book caused two characters to be connected. This got pretty repetitive as the story went on. However, a game/ event similar to gladiators caused a lot of drama all around. Magic was learned and used in this battle game, and it made the story more exciting.
I am almost done with the tagged book so my next audio while I clean for Easter is Beyonders. I may DNF the tales of ancient Egypt this month since I‘m finding no drive to pick it up. I started Dinoverse #4 yesterday and I‘m already two chapters in. 😍 @Andrew65 #weekendreading
4✨ While this took me a long time time to read (Almost 2 months) I loved it! Where it got be stuck was the middle part when Kyle was in despair and so depressed it was a woe as me fest. Then Lindy came into the picture and there was hope. There was tie ins to other fairy tales in a chat room ran by Mr. Anderson.⬇️
Little donkey likes grass so much that he turns green! Mom Donkey tried to tell him that variety is a good thing. Cute bedtime story for my youngest tonight. 🥰
I‘m having trouble processing what I just read today in Judges 19. So a husband gives his wife to some men at a town they lodge in, they abuse her all night, she dies, and the husband cuts her up in 12 pieces… ummm what? @BookBabe #BibleBuddyRead
4✨ I went into this book knowing I would have the feels. The great grandsons of J.R.R. Tolkien have had many adventures together. As brothers they were really close, and when the younger brother, Mike, passes away from Motor Neuron Disease it is up to our author Royd to complete his bucket list.
