Our October 1st tradition is to have chili (even though it‘s 90 degrees outside) and watch Hocus Pocus. I‘ve seen this movie so many times, I have it memorized. Happy October Littens! #HHC #scarathlon #halloweenbucketlist

aperfectmjk I started off the month with chili also. Personally I'm one of those people that can eat chili any time of the year... because it's DELICIOUS! 9mo

I‘m very behind on posting my reviews! This was one of my #roll100 and #readyourtbr books for February. It was decent. I really thought baking plus mystery would be a good recipe (see what I did there!?) but it was lacking. Glad to finally have read it though!

Sometimes it‘s really great just to feel like you‘re dropping in on a family and reading about their lives. No mystery to solve, no gigantic love triangle. Just a book about #3generations of a family. A really great read! #booked2023 #roll100

I love TJR. I managed to miss reading this one when it first came out. I read Carrie Soto last year, so this helped me understand that book a little better. I was so glad when I saw it on my #auldlangspine list. I love the time periods, the characters, just everything. Another great one by one of my favorite authors #authoramonth #bookspin

Usually I‘m a life‘s too short to read bad books, but this one was for my book club. I just kept thinking there had to be more. Some sort of plot twist, or bigger reveal than what actually happened. However, I do believe it will bring some good discussion at book club #booked2023 #newin2023

Late on posting but this was one of my January #roll100 books. I‘ve owned some of the books in this series for years, but my mom finally bought me a copy of the first one. I‘m looking to fill the void that is Kinsey Millhone because I read that entire series last year and I feel like my best friend is missing. This was a solid start to a series. Looking forward to more #serieslove2023 #booked2023 #gifted

Andrew65 Amazing how attached we get with some characters from series, and we feel bereaved when the series ends. Hope this turns out to be a good series for you. Well done 🥳 1y

Finished my first #roll100 book and it was so good! I put this on my tbr nine years ago when I first watched the show. It‘s been long enough that I can only remember big details from the show, so I don‘t feel let down by either the book or show not living up to the other one. I feel the book gave more insight into Dexter than the show, which is great. Can‘t wait to read more! #serieslove2023 #ispybingo #hand #booked2023 #propernoun

MatchlessMarie The early books in the series are the best. You can kind of tell towards the end that Lindsay was being influenced by the show. But it‘s a journey either way. Also be prepared to crave more donuts. So many references 😂 🍩 1y

This is my first #authoramonth read. I really wanted to love this book, and some parts really did make my ears perk up, but overall, it just wasn‘t my favorite. I may have been better served reading it instead of listening to it as well #bookspin #bookchain

Soubhiville I have wondered about that as well. I think she does herself a disservice by reading her own books. A different narrator may have made a big difference. 1y
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!!! 1y
DHill Agreed. I just finished the audio and it never really took off for me I think in large part due to the narration. 1y

I picked this one up on a whim because the book I had chosen for #2006 for #19822022 challenge was actually published in 2005. I didn‘t realize this was part of a series and I probably would have liked it even more if I had read the other books. There‘s a little bit of mystery, romance, laughter and a whole lot of Christmas! Short, fast read! #winterreadathon

Well I did it. I set out to listen to this entire series this year and I‘m done! I so thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series. Kinsey now feels like part of my family (even though she wants nothing to do with her found families) and I‘m sad the series has come to an end. With that being said, I‘ve been terrible about posting this year, but most of these books made it on to my #19822022 challenge list

He develops a laugh out loud relationship with a cat and works to solve a mystery with only an hour a day.
