One of the prompts from this book is to make/order something a character eats in a book, so after sending my #lammassmallswap I treated myself to an (iced) coffee and muffin, as Ruth has one in A Tale for the Time Being. Got home and opened the prompt envelope, this stamp with glasses was my prize.

Lindy Nice bonus! I‘m so suggestible that I immediately want any food or drink mentioned in a book… unless it‘s meat. 14h

Lindy @Cinfhen It happens to all of us. Sometimes I can tell that it‘s just the wrong time for me to be reading a particular book, usually to do with my mood and external things in my life. But when that happens, I don‘t tend to return to the book later to try it again. 🤷‍♀️ 2d

I don't know if he dies in the book as it hasn't been released yet, but when Baelish died in the show, that hit hard 😂! Out of existing deaths, Snape!

I skim-read most of this book as it's very slow.

2 ⭐

Using it for #sthelena #ReadingAfrica2022 @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB (would also work for #egypt - & you wouldn't have to complete the book to get there😂).

Also #pop22 #titlebeginswithletterofpreviousread @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @Kalalalatja @Laughterhp @Megabooks @KarenUK @squirrelbrain @RaeLovesToRead

Cinfhen Yeah, every once in awhile a real dud turns up for a challenge 🙄at least it covered a few challenges 🙌🏻💜 3w
BarbaraBB Smart choice nevertheless 🤣 3w
Librarybelle I see Litsy has this at 944 pages! That‘s a pretty in depth biography, and I would imagine very dry. 3w

To whoever is stalking me for #staycationintime swap I've done a bit of research & IF you are going down the route I mentioned on my form, the above tagged book & the ones on the picture will work for the states I'm missing. Hope this will save you some time! 😂😂😂 They're all on my Litsy list, but a bit of a way down.

This was... weird. I'd say it was more magical realism than a mystery, but it is certainly mysterious.

3.5 🌟 as I enjoyed what I read, but am unsure WHAT I read!

Librarybelle Interesting…I‘m only familiar with his Wallander series! 1mo
jenniferw88 @Librarybelle I enjoy his Wallander series so as soon as I saw this book for Mozambique I knew I would be reading it - he's an auto-buy author for me. 1mo

@Clwojick my goal for June is to finish the tagged & get to as many of these others as I can for #pridemonth. All of them fill a prompt for either #Tbrdeckofcards or #pop22. #bigjunereadathon

Clwojick Great goals! I‘m sure you‘ve heard it everywhere else too, but Evelyn Hugo and Evert Heart a Doorway (and the rest of the series) are AMAZING!!!!! 1mo

I'm not a big romance reader (& thought the sex scenes unnecessary) but I was rooting for Genevieve and Shane throughout this book! 4 🌟 but that's more to do with my lack of reading in this genre.
