The end of this year has been garbage. My heart is broken and I don‘t think I am going to meet my reading challenge. So I‘m throwing in towel and just gonna try a chunkster :)

I listened to this one on audio and gotta say I kinda hated it. It was read by the author and he read it so dreamily. Ill give it an ok bc it is beautifully wriiten. Its dreary and sad and not for me.

I have to read it before seeing the movie! And tomorrow I have a 4 (!!!) hour tattoo scheduled so I should get plenty of reading done!

ljuliel Holy smokes ! I guess I‘ve never asked anyone how long it took them to get their tattoo. That‘s a long time ! Is it a really big one ? 1mo
Skeebies05 @ljuliel I filled out all the paperwork paid the deposit and walked out. Then I get a confirmation email and THEN it tells me its a 4 hour appointment. I hope he overestimated 😳 1mo

Short stories are tough me. A bit jarring to be catapulted into a new time and place and characters. I liked this one overall. My favorite was Faun.

The black and white cover is when you open the nook book. But The other is thumbnail version. I dont think the black and white cover does the book justice. Any- hoo I love Julia‘s book!

I read this book in a day. I has such a shitty day at work, yesterday. My company decided to hire back a person who was fired for harassment!!! 🤬😡🤬😡And pay him an insane amount of money. This was just the book I needed.

This one was strangely plotted. All the mystery is solved fairly early in the book. But it does end on yet another cliffhanger. My least favorite so far but On to the next one!

This book is exactly what I wanted. I finished today, on the day the second book is set to be delivered. Perfect timing. Like any large book it did lag in places but personal relationships I loved. And Maud and Ethel are the real badasses in this book.

carlygriff I loved this trilogy! Enjoy 😊 4mo

I had to go back to find a good juicy romantic epic. Any other suggestions for me? ( not Outlander I‘ve already given that one a go) Thanks!

marleed Ohh, it looks like you don‘t necessarily need a currently written book. There‘s the Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy. 4mo
Skeebies05 @marleed I LOVE old books! They have a level of drama I miss from contemporary books sometimes. 4mo
marleed Oh then you might want to check these out. It‘s been a minute since I‘ve read them but I loved them at the time. 4mo
marleed I just checked and book 1 has a 91% litsy rating which I think is excellent for a book published in the 1920s. ...BTW, if I could only take 10 books to a deserted island, thornbirds is going with me! 4mo
