#botm was kind enough to add my birthday credit to October's picks after I forgot to use it in September. Sign Here is so popular that my box won't ship for a few more days.

I only read 5 books this month, but gave two 5 stars - Killers of a Certain Age and A Scandalous Kind of Duke . I decided A Scandalous Kind of Duke was my top favorite of the month. I just love Mia Vincy's writing and characters so much. #2022ReadingBracket

Just finished this lovely book. Juno is an artist. Leo is a Duke. They've been in love with each other for ten years, but duty and independence get in the way. I love Vincy's writing and characters. Another ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Loved it! Billie and her three fellow assassins are retiring. They've put in four decades of work for their organization. But on their retirement cruise they find themselves on the wrong end of an assassin. They work together to figure out why and fix this situation. Loved the main characters. Each had their own skills. Just a whole lot of fun. #botm

Johanna414 I'm so excited for this one! 4w
MrsK Been looking forward to reading this one. Great review. Thanks! 4w

Monthly update for my #2022ReadingBracket. The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy was my favorite August book. It beats my July favorite, The Bodyguard. But it lost up against my May favorite, The Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes.

Here's what I'm cataloging this week for the library. Thank goodness I order about a month in advance and received these books early. The company we order the majority of our books from, Baker & Taylor, had a ransomware attack and is on week 2 of being down. It sucks not being able to order books.

Chelsea.Poole Yes! It‘s been so bad! I‘ve been trying to place an order and it‘s so frustrating! And I‘m sure there will be big delays when it does come back online 😣 1mo
nitalibrarian @Chelsea.Poole I think you're right about the delays. I'm also worried our carts are all gone. It would be awful to start over on building future orders. 1mo
Chelsea.Poole @nitalibrarian I didn‘t even think of that!! 😱 I have four carts I was ready to submit all printed and ready…going on 2 weeks now 😵‍💫 1mo

I loved this book a lot. It had an enemies to lovers romance between a super tall grumpy, demigod warden and an undertaker who loves her family, great side characters, an interesting fantasy world, and humor. The fantasy worldbuilding is woven into the story. Just overall a lot of fun.

Upgrade: A Novel | Blake Crouch

Pickpick

Just finished and enjoyed very much. One of those books I didn't want to put down. This time Crouch centers on DNA and a possible doomed future. After reading this book, I'm left both disappointed and hopeful for the human species. It's a weird feeling.

I'm Glad My Mom Died | Jennette McCurdy

Started two books. I'm reading an ARC of Grace Draven's next book. Absolutely loved the first two in this fantasy romance series. And then I'm listening to to I'm Glad My Mom Died. I cataloged it at work yesterday evening, read the first page and then immediately used an Audible credit to download it to my phone.

I've been up since 3am traveling to Montana for a library conference. I planned on reading this on the plane, but I also had a low grade migraine today, so no reading. But after eating and drinking a bunch of water, I'm feeling better and plan to read until I can't keep my eyes open. Which probably won't be long.

Love on the Brain | Ali Hazelwood
post image
Pickpick

I was able to finish one more book in July. But unfortunately could not get that bingo for July's #BookSpinBingo.

I gave this a Pick with some reservations. I like Hazelwood's writing and all the science talk. The plot was fun! But the main characters felt too similar to the main characters in The Love Hypothesis. I hope the author branches out with her characters in her future books.

I received my July Adult Fantasy FairyLoot. It's absolutely gorgeous. I like the cover a lot, but LOVE the foil embossed hardcover. Now I have to decide if I leave the cover on or off?

tpixie #PrettyCover one reason I don‘t like hard covers is because half the time the cover comes off and then it‘s just a boring ugly book underneath whereas paperback covers stay on. What a special treat! (edited) 3mo

I liked this one a lot. A perfect mixture of humor and serious drama. Hannah is going through a lot of emotions from personal problems as she guards movie star, Jack Stapleton. She's tough and unique. I love how much Jack obviously adores everything about her. Fun tropes - fake dating and only one bed. Would definitely read this author again. #botm

Partners in Crime | Alisha Rai
post image
Pickpick

Finished this one late night. This is a 2nd chance romance with a suspense plot. Mira and Naveen find themselves kidnapped immediately after an unexpected reunion and have to work together to survive. The suspense part was really enjoyable. They have quite the adventure. This book takes place over a very short period of time, so the romance kind of feels like insta love. But they were very hot together. 4⭐️ Out 10/18/22

I'm sad to say Peri's tumor that we got removed from her leg and tested was cancerous. But her vet got another opinion from an oncologist and they don't think radiation is necessary. Removing was enough. I just have to watch for regrowth. It's been a stressful week. So we're in bed to read and relax.
