My husband has a late meeting, my son is at the gym. I‘m trying to stay awake for just a little while longer while the pup sits here at my side.

Just started this book. I‘m hoping to finish it by the end of #FabulousFebruary readathon. @Andrew65

Finished the 18th installment of the Joe Pickett series and these books just get better and better. This one has several different subplots that creep along toward connecting. I love Pickett‘s family and his friends, especially his now-adult daughter Sheridan. The bad guys are really really bad in here, and the snowy, wintery weather and terrain is fun to read about while it‘s 70 degrees and perfect outside. #FabulousFebruary

My goals are:
• finish The Disappeared by CJ Box
• read at least one book from my NetGalley backlog

I‘m using these choose-your-own-goal readathons to be more intentional about focusing on NetGalley. Thank you for hosting, @Andrew65!

I haven‘t felt much like cooking over the last few weeks. I felt bad enough that I wound up urgently under the care of doctors this week as my blood pressure had spiked to 180‘s/100‘s and stayed there for a week or so. I just couldn‘t care to get my cookbooks out and make something. But I‘m feeling better every day now with BP treatment and my numbers are better. I‘m ready to get going again.

#mtcookbook friends: I‘m so sorry for my inactivity!

intothehallofbooks I know this wasn‘t exactly book-related but it‘s #mtcookbook related as I thought about what everyone else was cooking and what cookbooks they were using the entire time I felt ill. Book adjacent, if you will 😊 2w

Finished this in my PJ‘s with my dog and my coffee #perfection

This is my favorite series because of Joe Pickett‘s bumbly honest nature, his penchant for finding himself in danger, and the love he has for his family. The case he works here has been ongoing for the past several books and it was nice to see it come to a close. Maybe. CJ Box has a knack for really setting up the scenes and painting Wyoming and the Tetons beautifully with words.

Whew, what an intense read! It‘s heartbreaking and painful, but also there is hope. I felt anger, shock, and grief multiple times while the MC came to terms with several betrayals.

I think ultimately this book is about trust and where to turn when people you love damage that trust. We‘ve all been hurt before, so this will resonate with everyone at least in part. It‘s exceptionally good. But my gosh, reading it has given my emotions a workout.

#currentlyreading both of these

I started Results May Vary because it‘s on my NetGalley backlog list from a long time ago. It‘s really good, but the subject matter isn‘t the lightest. So I decided to also read the next Joe Pickett novel, but that one isn‘t the lightest either. So right now I‘m reading two excellent books that make me feel a whole lot of intensity. I‘ll surely end up reading something lighter when I‘m done.

Low pick. Not quite as cute as the previous two stories in this collection, which I really loved. But still entertaining while I was driving. This one was comedic, but the way Rosie and Leo talked to one another was so corny.

The Ferryman: A Novel | Justin Cronin

Pickpick

I finished last night and enjoyed this read. At two places in this story, I had to regroup a bit because what I thought was happening wasn‘t actually happening. Once you get maybe 1/2 into it, it begins to feel like a cross between Inception and The Matrix, which was when it started confusing me just a little. But it worked itself out by the end and there are great, discussable themes in here. I loved the different iterations of each character.

I‘m exactly halfway thru and things have just taken an interesting turn. This map makes a lot more sense now. Been a while since I‘ve read any sci-fi or dystopian so it‘s a nice change of pace for me. I‘ve also never read Cronin‘s The Passage. I‘m liking this one so far.

So cute! My first by this author! Holly and John begin exchanging notes on the hood of Holly‘s car and keep it up for a while without ever meeting. I loved that there is some real emotional depth to the story even though it is so short. I kind of wish it was a full-length novel. I own a few of Abby‘s books-I should read them soon.

A short story included in the Skeleton Crew collection featuring a young boy who is left alone with his very old, unhealthy grandmother while his mother runs an errand. His fear of her dying while he is with her comes across so large. It was terrifying to me. Being privy to this child‘s innocent thoughts in relation to getting older and being a bit unhealthy-and hearing adults gossip but not understanding what gossip is-so fantastic. Classic King.

A short book that contains the three prequel shorts to the Brother Cadfael series. They all take place in the 1100‘s pre-A Morbid Taste For Bones and tell of Cadfael as he came to and settled into life at Shrewsberry Abbey. Cadfael is a soldier-turned-herbalist who uses his knowledge and observational skills to solve mysteries.

The language takes some getting used to but I‘m excited to move from here into the long series of full-length novels.

This short story is completely unhinged! I loved it!

A surgeon is shipwrecked alone on an island with nothing but a bunch of heroin and there is nothing available to eat. It‘s so gross, it‘s so gory. It‘s unthinkable. But it‘s SO Stephen King.

Why I enjoy stories like this, I‘ll never know! But I do, especially when they‘re by the King, and this was gleefully fun to read. Don‘t judge me. #readingStephenKing

I blew thru this one today. Really enjoyed it. It was creepy and wintry and I felt a lot of dread, particularly as the end neared. There are three POV‘s in a past time and in present time, and once they finally started to come together, the story was quite propulsive. The ending is sort of open. I know some people don‘t love open ended stories-I prefer more resolution but 🤷🏻‍♀️. This was my first McMahon book and I can‘t wait to read more.

I was reading this short story collection around 3-4 months ago and ended up putting it down with about one-third of the book to go. I can‘t remember why, exactly.

This was an easy, cute read! At less than 200 pages, it‘s a seasonal palate-cleanser after several horrors and thrillers.

Lucy has opened an Adventure Travel business where she will take a group to different destinations in the world for holiday adventures. I liked the friends she made on this trip, and the Venice setting. Not really a romance although there is potential for that development in future installments. Will read more in this series.

I reached my goal of reading at least one book from my NetGalley backlog. I had initially planned to read one that had been on my list for much longer, but this is the one I landed on and I‘m happy to cross one more off of my NetGalley list.

This is my #currentlyreading and I listened for a while today while driving. The book is narrated by Virtual Voice which is not a real voice actor. At first, you think “hmm, this isn‘t so bad” but when the characters have any type of nuanced conversation or exclamation —> wow, it‘s so robotic. It‘s almost comical. But more than that, it‘s sad to me that real voice actors may end up getting priced out of doing this work. The audio just isn‘t good.

monkeygirlsmama That's disappointing! I've never listened to one that came like that. 1mo

Started slow for me because there are so many characters to keep up with. I had trouble settling into the story with my digital copy, so I grabbed this print book to see if that would help-it did! Slowly the twists started coming until the fast-paced ending. It was a fun read. A locked-room murder mystery story with a little suspense too. I think the long length and slow start kept it from feeling as suspenseful as it was probably intended👇🏻

intothehallofbooks But a fun read nonetheless. I‘d like to thank Berkley Publishing and NetGalley for sending me a review copy. #JoyousJanuary 1mo
DGRachel Isn‘t it crazy how digital vs print can make such a difference? Christopher Fowler‘s books are like that for me - I cannot follow them on a Kobo/Kindle, but I devour them in print. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo
intothehallofbooks @DGRachel It‘s so strange, isn‘t it? I give it a few chapters at the beginning and if I can‘t make heads or tails of things, I grab a physical copy or an audiobook and that usually works. I have no explanation for why it works though! 1mo

I enjoyed this reread a lot although I didn‘t remember it being *quite* as dark as it is. There is a lot of covetous behavior in here, a lot of longing for things that belong to someone else. Nearly every character acts on this, and they all do bad things. There isn‘t really a good person in here. What I love about this book is the storytelling. Goolrick always blends love and tragedy so well, and it‘s the heart-wringing that I enjoy in his work.

I have just read this cover to cover and I‘m so impatient to get a physical copy and use it in my kitchen. Just reading it made me feel excited! My favorite things to make are sauces (and soups).

Sometimes I plan my entire meal around a sauce I want to make… #mtcookbook

I‘m joining #JoyousJanuary #readathon. After thinking about what I want my goal to be (loose, not too restrictive) I have decided this:

✔️I‘ll use these monthly readathons to catch up on backlog review books from a long time ago. They‘ll be backlist titles because-for some reason or another-I never reviewed them properly when they were pre-pub or newly published. A year of doing this should hopefully catch me up. We‘ll see how it goes!

This was a great wintry thriller by one of my favorites. The story involves family that gets dragged into a terrorism plot by one of their own. Very suspenseful throughout, very engaging.

This one is thrilling and reminds me a little of my last book read: The Drift by CJ Tudor. Follett always keeps me on the edge of my seat.

This was a ton of fun! Three different thrilling and horrifying POV‘s that came together in the end—but NOT AT ALL in the ways I suspected they might. So many twists. So claustrophobic and bloody.

My next read is one I found when compiling a list of holiday or winter books without romance as a focal point. I tend to read a lot of seasonal romance and I just wanted to try something a bit different.

I‘m really loving the wintery, snowy books I‘m finding. Especially the horror and thriller ones. My favorites so far this season have been The Shuddering by A Ahlborn (rec‘d by @Reggie) and Snow by R Malfi. I also loved Lawhon‘s The Frozen River.

While my family went skiing, I stayed in the cabin with the pup! I finished the tagged book, which I received a while back as an early copy from the publisher.

I‘m giving it a low pick because I loved the 1890‘s Klondike chapters, but didn‘t love the 2015 present-day storyline. The 1890‘s Gold Rush chapters were exciting and thrilling and the Berry family‘s greed propelled the story. The 2015 chapters…

intothehallofbooks …had potential but really needed more page time to develop and resolve some of its plot points. The end left me feeling empty after the big thrill of the Klondike chapters. I actually think the present day chapters could be a separate novel because so much went on in such a small amount of pages. 2mo

My December #12Booksof2023 was so astoundingly good. Martha Ballard was a real midwife who practiced in the Northeastern US in the late 1700‘s. My own L&D RN background likely contributed to my deep love for this book, but truly anyone would love it. It‘s a historical mystery that kept me on my toes throughout. Audiobook is highly recommended!

The last book I finished in 2023! I love food fiction and in this case, the main character is an author tasked with writing a history of English cooking. I loved all of the food, cooking, and recipes, and I really loved the historical info included about the English recipes. But the MC had a lot going on, and I got bored with all of the different dramas in her life. I struggled with a lot of the food, people, places, and pop culture references👇🏻

intothehallofbooks …but this made a lot more sense to me once I realized this book was published over in England a year ago. A cute story, will be most loved by more serious foodies or fans of British history and culture. Thanks to William Morrow and NetGalley for providing a digital copy for review. 2mo
