Hey Litsy! I am still here! There has been a lot going on with me! Well, first got the biggest surprise ever! We are having a baby girl in October. My #LitsyLove friends know about my infertility struggles so I'm still in shock and prepare mode!

Jane Green also came to visit! Love her!
I also got to breathe the same air as Fiona Davis while she interview @ChrisBohjalian ! What a great time!

Oh, and I signed up for #LMPBC! Woo! What a summer!

Bailedbailed

Hey #BookSpin friends, does a bail still count?

I tried so many times, but could not get into this one. I think I'm going to take it to the little free library down the street. Maybe someone else will enjoy it!

#BookSpin @TheAromaofBooks

Soubhiville Yes a bail counts, because you‘ve still taken it off your TBR. 👍😁 (edited) 12mo
aroc Yes! Thanks @Soubhiville ! 12mo
TheAromaofBooks @aroc - Yes!! @Soubhiville is completely correct - the goal is to get books off the list & sometimes a bail is the best way for that to happen!! 😂 12mo

Ok Ms. Cass, I have a bone to pick with you. I hated the first book, the first time I read it and the second time I read it! But the second book, OH MY GOD! Why did you do that to me? I couldn't put it down! And then to end it so quickly. Uuuggghhhh! Thank you for the second book and renewing my love for you!

Good morning Litsy! Sorry I have been MIA for a bit. Life got in the way and I was having some "blue" time.

Unsure about this one. It's between a pick and a so-so. I enjoy all the references and the quests. However, some were too drawn out and some had not enough to satisfy me. Disappointing as I was looking forward to this read.

Last full read of 2020! So I bought this one when I saw my BFF @EclecticBookLover was reading it! Needed some good old fashion romance and I think this collection may become a holiday tradition for me. 😂😂

Ok #WinterGames, if I read an anthology of Christmas stories does that count as one book or does each story count? Got some posting to do! 😊

slategreyskies Each story in a Christmas collection counts for 25 points, so if you read a collection that has 10 short stories, you‘d get 250 points. :) 2y

Honestly I selected this one from #BOTM without reading the synopsis! I saw the cover and went, "Yes, I want a holiday read!"

I LOVED it! It was exactly what I needed. I laughed out loud so many times! I devoured it in one day! I haven't done that in a while and it felt good!
