In June we went on a heist with Han, Chewy, & Crew. I enjoyed it. What did y'all think?
For July we head back to the High Republic. Starlight Beacon was destroyed & Avar Kriss & the Jedi are deperatly trying to fend off the Nihil. I admit I've missed Marchion Ro. Who are you looking forward to catching up with?
As always if anyone wants to be added or removed just let me know. And May the Force Be With You Always 🚀

My reading slump is over. I read ten books in June. My favorites were: A Thousand Ships, Leather & Lark, Lost Souls and Otherworldly 🤎💚🖤💙
For #BookSpin and #ReadOrDonate I read Blasphemy which I'm keeping. My #DoubleSpin and other #ReadOrDonate choice Walk's In Oscar Wilde's London didn't hold my attention, so I'm donating it.

Otherworldly | F.T. Lukens
post image
Pickpick

I love Lukens' books. This is the latest, and we follow Ellery and Knox. Ellery is working at a diner and is dealing with a world that has spent the past five years in an endless winter, and Knox is the human familiar for one of the local witches. At least he is until she gets killed, and he ends up on the run. Which is when he runs into Ellery, who makes a deal with him to help end the winter 💙

These are the first two books in the Wyman Ford series.
In Tyrannosaur Canyon Ford is all set to become a monk until his plans are interrupted by a coded message that leads a dinosaur and trouble.
In Blasphemy Ford is sent to check on a team of scientists trying to find the origins of the Big Bang.

RamsFan1963 Of the two, I enjoyed Tyrannosaurus Canyon more, but that's because Blasphemy had too much religious overtones for my tastes 2w

Leather and Lark | Brynne Weaver

I love these books. This is the second book in the Ruinous Love trilogy, and in this one, Lachlan botches a job and becomes the target of blame for some of the deaths in Lark's family. So, to help clear his name, Lark decides to marry him and help him hunt for the killer.
Note: There are a ton of trigger warnings just like in the first one 🖤

I love this book, and I've loved it since I read it in college (about 25 yrs ago). Fortunately, it has lost none of its magic in my latest reread.
Nothing runs away from home in a vain search to find his favorite band in Missing Mile, NC, but also finds a new family in three wild vampires 🖤

The Tainted Cup | Robert Jackson Bennett
post image
Pickpick

This was a good Sherlockian steampunk fantasy.
Din is an engraver magically altered to memorize everything in a crime scene so he can report back to Ana, a brilliant investigator who refuses to go outside and often wears a blindfold. The two are sent to a mansion in Daretana to solve the murder of a dead officer.
My main complaint is that you are tossed into a new world, and getting used to it can be jarring.

I got a 26%, not my best score. I feel there were a bunch of movies like Dune or in the horror genre that should of been there.
1- The Hobbit (loved the whole trilogy)
2- Rogue One (my favorite of the newer Star Wars movies and yes, I am still upset that they killed off Ben Solo in The Rise of Skywalker).
3- Guardians of The Galaxy (loved, but poor Rocket).

I love walking and hiking. I try to walk a mile or 2 every day. Two years ago, my brother Douglas and niece Kellyn and I hiked the Alum Trail in Gatlinburg Tennessee. It was about six miles up the mountain. My knees aren't that great, plus the altitude made it difficult to breathe at times, but the views were well worth it.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a retelling of the Selkie Wife folktale. In this one, Jean, the local midwife, finds her neighbor's wife outside one night in labor. She helps her to her house and then delivers the baby, but when her neighbor shows up for his wife and child, more questions do too.

For all the hype this book is presently receiving, it was just okay. I figured out who the killer was early on. It's another book where I disliked everyone. Is unlikeable characters the new trend? If so, it's not working for me.
Beth, Nicole, and Michael reunite after their mother dies and discover an old video of their father (who ran off years ago) covered in blood and needing their mother's help to bury a body.
