Cupid's Secret | Buck Kalinowski, Kim Miller
post image

Holy guacamole! 🥑 So many things to fit in one photo! @Lizpixie 💋 You‘ve thoroughly spoiled me, thank you so much. If I‘d opened the parcel on Monday then I‘d have been able to say I‘ve never read any of the books before, but I opened the parcel today & I read a library copy of The Lost Man only LAST NIGHT (How freaky is that?!). I absolutely loved it though (Good choice!) & I‘ll def read my copy from you one day soon
#cupidgoespostal

Lizpixie I‘m so happy you liked it! What a coincidence about The Lost Man, have you read her other two? I‘d be happy to send you a replacement book if you like, it‘s my fault for being a late sender.❤️ 10mo
neet_reads @Lizpixie I‘m really happy with everything, you definitely don‘t need to send anything else 10mo

Day 10 - #SentimentalSunday
Up until recently I would've listed my mum's collection of Mills & Boon books from the 70s and 80s as sentimental favourites. I read them as a teen & I guess I found them romantic. I recently re-read one of the Anne Mather books though and found it shockingly bad. I was upset by how sexist, etc. it was

vkois88 Oh no! Sorry they didn't live up to the good memories you had... 10mo
MrsMalaprop That‘s one of the reasons I hesitate to reread old favourites 😟. 10mo

I got a one-off subscription to see if I like Luxuread, & I don‘t think I‘ll be signing up for another box. I thought the book would be a new release. I borrowed this from the library last year & luckily never got around to reading it, so now I definitely will. The other items are nicely luxurious but a bit too beauty-based for me

Reviewsbylola I‘ve been wanting to read this but I think I‘d be disappointed too. I would expect a new release in a reading sub box. 10mo

Brooklynaire | Sarina Bowen
post image
Mehso-so

I just completed a #LittenLoveBingo #LLB19 prompt without even realising! Last week I saw someone post about a Sarina Bowen novel, which then made me remember I‘d stacked Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen on here ages ago, so I downloaded the eBook. It was pretty good, but not as good as I‘d expected. I‘ve been reading a lot of Avery Flynn lately and I feel she does this sort of Contemporary Romance better

Interesting to see this guarantee on the back, as most of the reviews about this book haven‘t had great things to say. I get the problems people have with the book, but I‘ve also giggled a bit while reading it & haven‘t wanted to put it down, so I have no idea how I‘ll rate it in the end

#Space #AugustIsATrip
Lately I‘ve been borrowing books from the library about minimalism, decluttering, spending less & making space in your life for things other than things. This is my reading for this weekend. Earlier in the week I read ‘The gentle art of Swedish death cleaning‘ & went through old letters, etc. to see what I still really wanted to keep

Leftcoastzen I am sorting old paper now.It‘s hard .read one more time and let go or keep. Got to get rid of some. 1y
neet_reads @Leftcoastzen So hard to do! A lot I threw away though because I realised I hadn‘t read them for 10-20 years and was only reading them again now to declutter 1y
BibliophileLibrarian Now that I am reading The Year of Less, I‘m inspired to sell purses and handbags that I rarely use. My fiancé and I are moving into an apartment so I‘m trying to purge unnecessary items to make space for his things. 1y

Being an Australian of Croatian Heritage, you'd think I'd have read a lot of books set in #Croatia & the Balkans, but this is all that comes to mind
Photo is of members of my family at the local Croatian Club during the recent World Cup. I was too lazy to leave my house in the middle of the night, so I watched the matches from home in my pjs 😀
My older sis and her hubby and kids are on their way to Croatia right now, so #AugustIsATrip for them!
