The character arcs that our main four went through was wonderful. None of the main characters got out unscathed but they learned so much along the way. Not to knock Ana but I still found the chapters from the boys to be far more interesting to read. These kids are beautifully complex and I love them for it. There is one major question unanswered and I have feeling about that. #lmpbc @Schlinkles @bookandcat

TsundokuAleax @Schlinkles @bookandcat this was actually mailed on Tuesday but I totally forgot to post. 🙄 3w

Nevermore88 Yay im glad you like it . I will post a pic of my box tomorrow I had such a busy day today I didn‘t get a chance to open it. 1mo
sprainedbrain Wow! Great gifts. 🖤 1mo
TsundokuAleax @Nevermore88 No worries. I am usually opening mine at midnight or posting pictures the next day because I get busy. 1mo

And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted - nevermore!

TsundokuAleax @Nevermore88 Yes! I realized today that I got butterfingers and hit the wrong name when I orginally went to tag you on this post. There are a ton of decorations still going up so there will be a lot of book photoshoots as they finish. 2mo
Nevermore88 I can‘t wait to see the rest of the decor 2mo

Round about the caldron go;
In the poison‘d entrails throw.—
Toad, that under cold stone,
Days and nights has thirty-one;
Swelter‘d venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i‘ the charmed pot!
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

I do not go for thrillers but I did enjoy this one. The layers of story going on here and how well Amy learned and played the game was fascinating. Rue was very right when she described Amy as an origami puzzle but that also applied to the book as well. There were so many different moments that unfolded and changed the picture. Books like this make me happy for the rest of the group for making me try new reads. #lmpbc @Schlinkles @bookandcat

TsundokuAleax @Schlinkles @bookandcat This should be in the mail today or tomorrow. I also already picked up Soul of Stars, if you are okay with that for the next round. 2mo

Maddie and Theo have been at odds forever. They have to play nice for Alexa's wedding. What happens when they start to really see each other and realize that maybe they were wrong? While I like Maddie, Theo is my boy and I got his back in this one. Maddie is firm the end but gets mad when Theo agrees to what she says. When Theo is down he says some things he shouldn't. That being said, Maddie needed to grovel way more than him. #romantsy

tpixie Lol my oldest daughter is Maddie and my youngest daughter‘s 3 yo son is Theo! 3mo
TsundokuAleax @tpixie Those are great name choices. That being said, it might be a weird read just because of the names. 3mo

When guys who run away from relationships fall, they fall hard and also eventually mess up. It is to be expected. Weston is stuck at Kendra's till his place is fixed up. They do not get along at all but Kendra still comes to the rescue after an accident. Seeing Weston grow and learn how to open up was amazing. As was opening up about some major trauma that really informs his behavior. #romantsy

Man, did I ever fall in love with these two characters. Edwina is a bit down on her luck but manages to find someone to hire her as their secretary. Michael is attracted to his secretary but finds her mind and how she understands and respects him just as intriguing. The way Edwina felt about Michael's interest in how smart and clever she was, is something I understand on such a deep level and made this book special to me. #romantsy

This book was an eh over all but I love Pierce. He is an amazing emotionally intelligent man. Rain is a bit of a mess from a lot of the things she went through and is hiding. It was a fun but fairly forgettable read for me but seriously read it for Pierce because he is amazing. #romantsy

So I read the last book first but am totally happy with it. I love that Sarah was the nobility while Jeremy was a vicar. To see how these two connected and how much they enjoyed the bedroom was amazing as a wonderful change of pace. While Jeremy did not have a great reaction to the secret Sarah was keeping from him, I love how much he supported her and wanted her to continue by the end of the book. Now to read the other two. #romantsy

I was a bit surprised by this read. It is a darker new adult romance but the book is dealing with some heavy stuff. Daniel has a secret that keeps everyone at arms lenght and Lisanne accidentally figures it out. Daniel's less than stellar home life that goes from bad to worse and Lisanne goes between being helpful and detrimental. These two are high emotional swings that will not be for everyone but I did enjoy the story. #romantsy

I realized last night that I never posted about this lovely book. It was such a fun but layered ride to see Gork fail at being a terrible dragon. To see how they taught and did things was funny and a bit sad for how out of place Gork was. I did enjoy much of the story and logic for how they did things. This is a perfect book for middle grade students but I would happily read again. #lmpbc @Schlinkles @bookandcat

LibrarianRyan I have this, and its actually on my read soon TBR cart. I love the cover of yours. I have the hard cover with the hand giving the rock on sign. 3mo

This was a wonderful way to celebrate opening the show I have spent most of this year working on.

1. My parents have played my whole life and my first campaign was when I was 13 in 2nd Edition.
2. In a heartbeat. I can't play as regularly as I would like and it makes me so sad.
3. Read the manuals to understand the rules and find a good group that is willing to teach you how to properly play.
4. @MrBook @DivineDiana because I am very interested to see what you think.

TsundokuAleax @bookandcat I wish I did. I barely have time to listen to the two podcasts that I currently am into. I cannot imagine trying to jump into those right now. Maybe someday. Also, I am dying to play in 5th edition because everyone says it is brilliant after that one we don't talk about. 5mo
