When all your library holds start coming in at the same time!

Just the tagged book was a hold but why not take out two more to go with the ten books i already have checked out!

Im trying to read all the holds first because they are due back sooner than the regular books!

JanuarieTimewalker13 Wow!! I haven‘t read The Keeper of Lost Things, but it‘s been on my TBR forever...but now it will be eclipsed by TMTSAMB!! Thanks for bringing this to my attention!! 2w

Back for a third year is the #LittleChristmasSwap

This is a low key swap of just one book and some candy!

Open internationally!

I know opening day isnt until January 6th but we all know how stressful delivery has been as of late. Please keep that in mind if shipping media mail. I would encourage you to ship well before Christmas.

Signups are open now until Nov 18th and matches will be sent out Nov 21st.

https://forms.gle/BJzQq1S9Lrr1SFo2A

I saw an interview that Dave did about the book and he said he wrote 300 pages before he mentioned the Foo Fighters. That had me intrigued!
This one may have to wait until after all my spooky reads!

Another library hold came in!

Im finishing up the Danny Trejo book and then on to this one! Perfect for a spooky season read!

Ive been splitting up the pages based on how many days the loan is for on the book, that way i read a specific number of pages each night so i dont get overwhelmed! Its worked really well so far!

Does anybody else do this?! 🙃

Bath Haus: A Thriller | P. J. Vernon

Just finished this one with no time to spare! Its due back tomorrow! Im not sure how i feel about this book. I had a hard time because i wasnt getting the personality from the characters that im used to. The story did keep me intrigued but then all of a sudden the ending was all over the place! It honestly made me feel like i read the whole story for nothing because the ending felt so disconnected from the entire story! It felt chaotic!

Lazy Saturday and a long weekend!

Starting my BOTM pick!

Copwithabook Will you let me know how graphic the child abuse is in this novel? I saw there was a warning on it. I‘m a detective and investigate these crimes daily so I try to stay away from the topic in my reading- just for my own sanity. However, I‘ve seen a lot of hype on this one so of course I‘m curious. 9mo
bookish_wookish Absolutely! It flips between present day and memories but im not that far into it yet. Im hoping it stays as memories and doesnt fully play out in chapters. Ill keep you posted. @Copwithabook 9mo
