#bookreport @Cinfhen

Had another good week 😀

Met my goal for #jumpstart2020 @Clwojick @Lizpixie 😀

Finished 2 more books for #newyearwhodis - enjoyed them and was surprised by the ending of Don‘t Skip Out on Me. @Kdgordon88 @monalyisha

And finished 2 netgalley ARCs 😀

SilversReviews I LOVED The Light After The War...what about you? 3d
Jerdencon @SilversReviews I really enjoyed it too! 3d
Cinfhen I read Light too but it wasn‘t what I was expecting/ it was more of a romance novel but still an interesting read😊Really successful week! 3d
Clwojick Way to go! 3d
Lizpixie That‘s amazing!🎉At least some of us met their goals🤦🏻‍♀️ 3d

My husband is secret reader at my sons school tomorrow and this is one of the books he picked to read... I had never read it before but literally laughed out loud reading it. It was so funny!!

TheBookAddict That‘s cool, sounds like a fun story. So do they have parents volunteer to read to the kids? 5d
Jerdencon @TheBookAddict yes... parents volunteer to read to the class. 5d

Finished book #2 (Little Faith) for #newyearwhodis - really enjoyed it but wished the ending was a little more neatly wrapped up.
Started # 3 and only about 40 pages in and so far it‘s good.

It‘s also #3 for #jumpstart2020 😀

So @monalyisha matched me up well with @Kdgordon88 as 5 of the books on the list (the ones with marks by them) were ones I read and loved. Off to request the other five now! #newyearwhodis
Have a feeling I‘m going to love them!

BarkingMadRun This is intriguing! How does it work? 1mo
Jerdencon @BarkingMadRun it was run by @monalyisha who pairs everyone up. Unfortunately I believe the sign ups are closed 1mo
