Starting this chilly morning with a mystery.

Halfway through and I‘m not sure how I feel about this book. I was expecting more about African legends and not so much, well, disemboweling.

ImperfectCJ I was in a similar boat with this one. Since I read it a couple of weeks ago I've decided that I really like it, especially Tracker's evolution over the course of the novel, but it was a challenge to get through all of the blood. 7d
BarbaraBB Great picture 💕 7d
Hooked_on_books You crack me up! 😆 I‘ve been letting this one languish on my shelf. I‘m a little wary of it. 6d
lele1432 I am also wary of this one, but still very curious. 🤔 6d

Thanks @MaleficentBookDragon for coordinating.

Happy Halloween. 🎃🎃🎃👻🎃🎃🎃

Check out my score from the library book sale! It wasn‘t until I got home that I realized everything I bought is blue. Strange.

Soubhiville I find myself drawn to blue spines too. I never realized it until I arranged my TBR shelf by color. I have the most blue, then black, then red spines. I wonder if this has more to do with publishing trends or subconscious preference. 🤷‍♀️ 4w

Next audiobook. Love the subtle incentive (hurry up, people are waiting!) from the library.

ljuliel I wish they wouldn‘t have started putting that reminder note on your online checkouts. It bothers me so much that I feel like I have to hurry up and get done with the book since others are waiting. 4w

I‘m so sorry it‘s late! He told me to tell you it‘s his fault (he didn‘t tell me right away that he didn‘t mail it on time 😆) and he‘s sorry! Again, apologies! I hope you enjoy it once you get it! ❤️ 5mo
