Predictable but not a bad read.
This was the king of page turner I needed to break me out of my reading slump. The main character was very interesting and I was hooked from page 1. I read this on my first gen old school kindle and I would not recommend as there are emails and written notes at the beginning of each chapter and the fonts were not visible to me. I am sure this would not be an issue on newer e readers.
1. Stressful! My reading tanked. 2. A reset - I'm eating healthier and my reading is back on track. I look forward to Christmas decos after Nov 12 (Remembrance Day in Canada). 3. I am grateful for friends, the Litsy community and my fam jam.

Please join me in wishing @DinoMom the happiest of Birthdays!!!!
My 10 year old daughter received the most thoughtful #alterednightmareswap package. The drawing on the book was lovely. My daughter saw it and said "this was drawn just for me? It's so beautiful!" Thank you so much to my swap partner and thank you to @LibrarianRyan for organizing.
@StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego - you are so thoughtful! Thank you for my early Birthday surprise - I love it!!!!!!
1. I go through spurts. I usually journal in January and it fizzles by March.
2. October started as a good reading month then it went downhill quickly. I've been binge watching Chicago Fire on Netflix. How did I not know about this show?
3. Today I am grateful for a beautiful evening walk with my family.
Thanks for the tag @DinoMom . @Eggs . Wanna play @DebbieGrillo
Thank you for the tag @kspenmoll :)
1. Depends on my mood. In general I'm more likely to reach for a crime novel but sometimes a cozy hits just the right note.
2. The involvement of actual police versus amateur sleuths. The detail of crime - cozies are generally not gritty or gory.
Want to play @DebbieGrillo
@BookishTrish , @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego , @BeeMagical - I'm so excited for LMPBC! What are your thoughts on theme? This time of year I read a lot of spooky/cozy/seasonal (fall/Christmas) themed books but I also like gold old fashioned mysteries, YA Fantasy, lots of stuff!
@FantasyChick - thank you for the amazing #poutinepenpalsfallswap package! I LOVE the blanket, mug and candle holder and I cannot wait to read the books. Thank you so much! @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego
I found that the book jumped around in time a lot and it was hard.to keep track. Jonny's struggling with his identity and how sex fits into that - the acts of sex in this book are about his raw emotions and trying to find his way - I felt like I was invading his private, innermost thoughts- which left me with a "yuck" feeling. This book is NOT mindless, steamy sex where you are just along for the ride.
Loved his Kokum and their bond.
Today I said goodbye to my companion of 16 years. He was an amazing boy who loved a good patch of sunshine. My home won't be the same without him.
Really enjoyed the story in this YA graphic novel! A perfect read on this grey? Rainy day.
What a book! The tension in this one started at 100% and just kept going. Best in the series so far.
Not sure how I feel about this one. I loved the police characters in the book however I felt that the book could've used a stronger edit. It felt a lot longer than it needed to be.
I'm not one to normally read science fiction however this booked was raved about on my fav book podcast. They did not steer me wrong. The characters were so interesting and relatable. I loved the adventure! I will be checking put his other books for sure
@StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego - Thank you SO much for the amazing bookmarks - I love them all! Banff is one my top wish list places to visit in Canada and I love coffee and dogs. I cannot wait to use these ♡
@cwarnier - thank you for organizing this swap.
@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks - saw this today and thought of you. Sending you all the get well soon vibes!!!
Wowza - what a book! This one had been on my tbr for ages and I was so excited to receive it from @melissajayne . I'm hesitant to read books that are very popular as they are often big misses for me (Crawdads is an example) but I totally understand the hype about this book. What a great story!!! The characters are so rich and complex and the issues that they deal with are big. This is one that will stay with me.
Yay! I can't believe it's my 3 year Litsy-versary. Thank you @DebbieGrillo for introducing me to this wonderful community l!
