So I thought I was reading my #LMPBC book in bed with the dog beside me. But I look over and I have this Bat-Dog!! Wonder what superpowers the #SciFi gave him?

That look when you finish a darn good book and it ends on a cliff hanger and you arent sure where book 2 in the series is so now you gotta find it at 3AM... A cat god, an ancient Egyptian older than the pyramids, a Norwegian orphan and a Virginia kid team up to stop fire demons and save the planet basically. I cant do this book justice. Just go read it!

"Our books have a job to do and they need the proper reader to share their unique content with."

Is it just me or does this feel so accurate about books in general?

The fairy godmother is sick, a 200 year old French army is trying to claim the Fairytale world for France, new Grimm Fairytales are being read, and a dragon is on the loose. This was a good read, I read it in just a fee hours. Now onto book 4!

I have missed the past couple of these, so Im excited to say that Im all signed up for #Booked2020 with @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft and @BarbaraTheBibliophage and I cant wait! Seems a good way to knock a couple dozen books off my TBR finally :)

Cinfhen Woohoo!!! My goal is to use at least half the books I own for this challenge. A little creativity goes a long way 😊 2w
jessinikkip I am pretty sure that I can get most of them with books I own. I have 400 books on my GoodReads TBR list that I own and haven't read yet. And that's just the ones as of back in June. Like, people keep giving me books which is great but I need to read these or I never will LOL (edited) 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage Yay! So glad you‘re joining in the fun for 2020. I definitely plan to use books I already own, since my list just keeps getting longer. I have no buying self control ... ugh. 2w
