#lmpbc pick. Great read. Definite "YA" moments but there was a lot of originality in this story that kept it interesting.
This book is one hot tamale!!! I enjoyed the characters and storyline and the "open door" romance was off the charts.
I did not realize this book was YA when I purchased it but I am glad that I did. I wish this body positive material had been available with I was a youth. I loved the mix of voices in these 16 different short stories that covered many different topics.
I'm jumping the gun as I'll be travelling tomorrow. Thank you so much @ReadingRachael - you totally spoiled me for the #litsylovesanimalsswap. The hedgehog is darling, I cannot wait to use the mug cozy and bowl covers and my daughter has claimed the straw! The book sounds wonderful and I cannot wait to visit Ren's Pets to choose some treats for my dog and cats. Thank you !!!!! @DinoMom
Slow start but a very interesting account of a childhood spent bouncing back and forth between a game preserve in Botswana, Africa and Philadelphia, US. The last half of the book was my fav. I really enjoyed the I sight on Botswana's wildlife and culture.
This was an entertaining read with great characters. I did not realize it was part one of a duology. I look forward to picking up the second book.
Finished my #lmpbc pick for the newest round. Cannot wait to hear everyone's thoughts. I wanted to confirm - is @DinoMom shipping to @Tianarose and Tiana shipping to @michellelav , Michelle shipping to me and I'm giving to @DinoMom ?
This book is described as a "chilling literary thriller." The only thing chilling about this book is that it's set in winter. It is also not a thriller, rather a study on the ways parents can really screw up their children. The ending left me asking myself "what have I just read?" Still unsure.
I've got mixed emotions on this book. It is not chronological and at times I found this a bit confusing. Some parts were really interesting and others felt really long and drawn out. The good parts were really good but not enough for me to highly recommend the book.
What an interesting book! A non fiction account of a mysterious beast that terrorized a small town in Labrador in the late 1800's. The author travels into the Labrador wilderness to the now deserted town to explore. Enjoyed his descriptions of travelling through the wild places and his exploration of folklore from the area. The end was spine tingling.
This is a prime example of book timing for me. Picked it up last year and it did not hold my attention. Picked it back up recently and was captivated. A vivid story about an abandoned child and her connection with the marsh where she lived. Biscuit approves. #catsoflitsy
Did not realize this was a cozy when I chose it. I thought it was going to be a spooky book. For a cozy, it was pretty good!
@DinoMom - thank you for the wonderful #bestof2021 swap package. I love everything! Happy New Year my friend!
@candority - I was naughty and opened my package early and I haven't transferred the pics over to my new phone yet ,- tee hee.
If The Fates Allow - what a great short story. I wanted to know more! Also, I am now craving jello salad.

Not book related but I thought I would post in case anyone needs a laugh to brighten their Monday. We had a costume competition at my work Christmas party. This was my costume.
Thanks for the tag @bookworm. Wanna play @DebbieGrillo , @DinoMom ?
