That was so bad... 😱 At least I earned some #scarathlon2022 points

OK, I admit defeat on this one. I got about halfway through, and I'm just not enjoying it. I was expecting to, so it's disappointing, but it was really boring to me.

It won't count for a team read since I'm not finishing it, but I did get some word search words and it's a #bookspinbingo square completed 📚

Don Quixote | Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

Chapters 27-30 of Don Quixote were my #bookspin for May! After a two-month journey, I finally conquered this chunkster. I actually really enjoyed it. Sancho and Don Quixote are endearing (and bonkers) 😆 While there were some dense chapters that I didn't enjoy as much, I still really liked the book and am glad I read it!

My next read is Poldark (not a fan of the show tie-in cover, but it was, oddly, the only copy I could find.)

My good friend, Erica Richardson (who is also an author), designed the cover for my first book, and I'm sharing a sneak peek of the cover elsewhere on social media, so I thought I would share it here, too!

She did such an amazing job, and I can't wait to be able to share the whole cover! 😊💙❄
