Ready to dive into this one. It sounded like it could be a lot of fun. I love a good mystery.

One of the better books in the series so far. I am actually starting to enjoy it more, although Ciri kind of drives me nuts at times.

Again my main goal this year is to read more of "my" books. I am hoping to clear more off of this shelf this year instead of adding to it. We shall see though.

Not a bad reading year. I stuck to my goals of reading more my books & less library books as well as reading more of my Stephen King back log (15 King in 2021). My new goals are to get back on track with my reviews & to catch up/finish some of the series I have started.

My last book of 2021 will either be:

The Crown Tower--Which I just finished or
A Touch of Malice-- Which I am hoping to finish tonight after work.

My 1st book of 2022

I am thinking it is time to finally pick up Station Eleven. I've been meaning to pick it up for years and the release of the series on HBOMax may just be the final push I need.

Got this shirt (as well as a pretty cool tumbler with many of the same characters & a horror themed trivial pursuit game) as a gift at Christmas and my sister's boyfriend asked "Not sure if you guys are celebrating Christmas or Halloween?" So what if we like horror movies & books, is that wrong? ?‍♀️?‍♀️??

Ok so I cheated and put them all in 1 post but 🤷‍♀️. December isn't over yet so I am still holding out to see what my pick will be but otherwise here are my favorite reads for each month. Apparently it was the year of Stephen King & Romance...not two things that would normally go together.

#12Booksof2021

vivastory I have a tradition of making my last book of the year a Stephen King. The Long Walk was my final book of 2019 & I remember finishing it right before midnight New Year's Eve & being just floored by it 3w

My TBR shelf continues to grow thanks to some wonderful Christmas gifts. I have done a much better job this year reading books I actually own vs checking books out from the library but I swear for every 1 book I remove from my TBR shelf I add 5 more. 🤔🤷‍♀️😬

The Wolf | J.R. Ward

Pickpick

While this book had no Lassiter (my favorite character of hers), I can't get enough of J R Wards books. I am enjoying these new characters just as much as if they were part of the family all along. I loved the somewhat closure for Jose. He doesn't have to be haunted by his past "failure" anymore.

December is here so that means it is time for my November wrap up.

Favorites: The Storyteller, The Love Hypothesis
Least Favorite: Pearl

maich I read The Love Hypothesis and Home Before Dark. Loved both of them. 2mo
jackilynn @maich I couldn't put either of them down when reading. I flew right through them. It definitely has me interested in other works by both authors. 2mo
maich @jackilynn I also read Lock Every Door by Riley and also enjoy it. Will definitely read more his books. 2mo

I took a break from Stephen King for the month of November because all of my library holds were coming in at once but I am ready to dive back down the rabbit hole.

A slow night at the library. I finished everything on my to-do list so I found another way to keep myself busy. Why not knock out a chunk out of one my current reads. Discovering I can Axis360 on a desktop (as opposed to my phone/tablet) has made library work go by faster.

Overall a good read. I really wish I could've listened to the audio though because I think I would've enjoyed it even more that way.

This was a reread for one of my local book clubs. Usually considered not your "typical" Stephen King book but I still enjoyed the ride. Definitely a different reading experience as an adult vs as a kid (when I 1st read it). Anne Heche does a great job narrating the audiobook.
