1. For me, its the Goldilocks effect, where I don‘t want the plot to be too slow to the point where I‘m bored out of my mind, or too fast to where I can‘t keep up.

2. The tagged book is a great, unique horror story that I was really invested in.

❄️ I like it if I don‘t have to drive in it. I have a Subaru so I don‘t loathe it *that* much, but it‘s nice to not have to worry about slush and swerving around a lot.

This was a great coming of age story about Kya Clark having problems with her family early on in life and as a result, running away to live in the marsh land. She learns a lot about herself over the years while also learning to connect with nature despite her loneliness.

I liked that Owens added a murder mystery to the plot as that made the story more interesting. The writing is beautiful and poetic.

2. It doesn‘t look like it this year, at least where I live. It‘s going to be in the low 40‘s with rain. But people living in northern Upstate NY might have a white Christmas. They‘re forecasted to get a few inches, especially in higher elevations. Maybe next year. 🤞

This was an interesting look into the attempted (but failed) assassination of Lincoln before he was to take office in his first term as President. One has got to wonder what the country would be like today if he was assassinated before taking office and if his successor would have set out to abolish slavery.

1. The only book I‘ve read that had an UR was The Woman in the Window. Not a fan, but I suppose if done correctly, it could add to a story.

2. Magnetic bookmarks. Now I understand the hype surrounding them.

3. This was the first series where I couldn‘t wait to read the next book. Plus, Riordan incorporates Greek mythology that doesn‘t bore the reader.

1. I stopped creating goals a couple years ago as it was just too much pressure to meet what I set. I find it much less burdensome when I can read/listen and not think about meeting a goal. So far this year, I‘ve read 10 books.

2. The tagged book. I read it as an ebook early last year and then I stopped reading it halfway through because I new I wanted to get it as a hardcover for Christmas. Definitely will be a 5 ⭐️ read

The Thursday Murder Club | Richard Osman

I‘m kind of regretting listening to this on audio. The narrator isn‘t the greatest in my opinion. The plot is a bit all over the place and there are too many characters to keep track of. I‘ll put this one on hiatus for awhile and maybe then I‘ll forget the narrator‘s voice. 🤞 If you‘re going to read this, then an ebook or physical copy is the way to go.

I was a little disappointed that I didn‘t end up liking this as much as I thought I would when all said and done. Though, I did like the dark, horror-ish descriptions! Plus, the narrator did a very good job reading this; most likely why I finished it. Nonetheless, I‘m intrigued what Giesbrecht writes next.

Truly a commendable effort for Rebecca Skloot to publish this and tell the story of Henrietta Lacks and her family on how scientists did research on her cells without consent. I liked that Skloot shed some light on the family drama and didn‘t make it all about Henrietta.

I can‘t believe it took me so long to read this! This should be required reading, even for high schoolers.

It‘s more me than it is the book, but I didn‘t really care for this to be honest. I had a hard time following the story and had the audiobook on as background “noise”, if you want to call it that. I was glad to have finally finished this.

I have a box full of books that I no longer want to keep/read so keep an eye out on there. I do have books that I bought from thrift stores and a library sale, so if the books are a little beat up, then it‘s from the previous owner(s). I take real damn good care of my books.
