Getting prepared for the #WinterGames and I am on team #TheFilthyAnimals What a name!😂

I have already set up a system to keep track of books to read, movies to watch, etc. Go team! 🎄🎄

Texreader Oh do share your system! This is new to me so I‘m sure to let my team down. 😬 12h
TheSpineView @Texreader I am going to put it in a spreadsheet because a notebook is just not working the way I want. If you want the template just email me at lisa@thespineview.com and I will send it to you. 12h
Texreader @TheSpineView You‘re a sweetie! Email will be from kamonsen@aol.com 11h

After a plane chase the two survivors must endure effrontery in the Colorado mountains. Enjoyed the book but didn't see the movie. The plot was believable and the characters were well done.

Eggs Loved this story 😭😭; movie left out so much 22h
TheSpineView @Eggs I loved it too and heard the movie was a disappointment. 21h

Here are today's #Two4Tuesday questions.

📘 Totally! I don't want to pick the book back up and I don't want to start another one just in case. Therefore, I end up finding other stuff to do.
📘 Usually by the third try at readings it or by around 100 pages if I am still struggling.

#ThoughtYouWouldLikeButDidnt

I started this book the first week of this month but I have not been able to get into. I just don't connect with the MC. I shelved for now. I may try again and see it I can get a little further.

OriginalCyn620 👍🏻📚 4d
AutumnRLS I went back and forth with this one between a pick and a so-so rating. I think I would have liked it better if I'd gone in knowing nothing. I really struggled getting into it so you are definitely not alone on this one. 4d
TheSpineView @AutumnRLS That's good to know. So many loved this book. If I can't get into after another 20 or 30 pages I am just going to send it to the DNF pile. 4d
See All 7 Comments
BookNAround I didn‘t love this one. I read a third of it, set it down, and ignored it for months. Finally pushed myself to finish it but was pretty underwhelmed. 4d
AutumnRLS @TheSpineView life's too short and there are so many good books. DNF and send it along to someone who might love it. No book shame. ❤ 3d
TheSpineView @AutumnRLS Excellant advice!😊 3d

#ThoughtYouWouldNotLikeButDid

I won my copy in a giveaway. I had seen mixed reviews and was afraid I would be disappointed. I think that is why I put it off so long. But I fell in love with the book.
I should know better than to let other people's opinion discourage me from reading.
My full review is not up on my blog at www.thespineview.com

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yay! Sometimes low expectations going in are better than high expectations....you can be wonderfully surprised! 5d
OriginalCyn620 I‘m not a big fantasy person, so I was unsure of this one too, but ended up loving it! 🖤 5d
