Spent a little time this morning setting up my new reading planner for the week. Included is my #weeklyforecast which hopefully finally will really include finishing The Gilded Wolves! I will definitely finish listening to Dear Evan Hansen in the car and I hope to get through most of my reread of Dumplin' listening at home. I Was Their American Dream and Brazen are graphic novels that I hope I can get through quickly. @Cinfhen
I'm not going to finish off another book today so here's my #NovemberWrapUp
I wasn't in much of a reading mood this month. Pretty sure I'm saving up for #WinterGames 😂 But I still managed to read some pretty great books and a couple ok ones
Here's my #WeeklyForecast
I want to finish my #LMPBC reads b/c I'm super behind.
I have to read The Gilded Wolves since I have an arc for the next book.
My #audiobook is in process already. I'll probably switch formats for another book as backup
The Electric Heir is my #NetGalley book for the week.
I stuck pretty well to this last week so hoping for another success!!
I finished this about a month ago and read quite a few books in between (had a run of 3 books in 2 days while getting over a bug) and for the life of me I can‘t remember what it was about.... I do remember being bummed that I have to wait for the sequel and bumping her juvenile series Aru Shah up on my list, but had to google to refresh my memory. So, good reread, but obviously not remarkable.
I enjoyed the world building, I didn‘t mind the slow pace of the plot. I liked the way the characters were slowly drawn and made the reader care. I cared until the author pulled a Joss Whedon right at the end. That is passé and lazy writing in my book. This is taking the easy way to make the hero, why is it always the hero, feel something. That left a bitter taste in my mouth. I probably will not read the next book.
25% to go in this one. It took an unexpected turn. I'm intrigued to see how it will play out. So, i have a kind of categories of my teams... like my spouse team is 🐧, my legacy team is Montreal because I grew up with it. My fling teams are 🍁 and Hawks and there's the team you live to hate.. Capitals. So three of my teams are playing tonight. 😁
Totally in the thick of the heist plot. The second book of the series is coming out early 2020.
Leafs hockey at home tonight. Let's see if Johnny T and Marner can recapture their magic touch.
Saturday... hockey night in Canada. Opening night. 🐧 are playing at home against the Blue Jackets. 🍁 are at home vs the Habs.
Getting into this one finally.
It's October and 🏒 is finally back. Captain drama in TO. Opening night for the Leafs at home. Oh, how I missed my boys of hockey. #readingandwatchinghockey
✨Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes! 💜 Yesterday was my only day off this week, so now it‘s back to work and reading in my car 45 minutes before my shift starts. 🙈 I‘m having a hard time getting into this one. I‘m not sure if it‘s because Darkdawn was my last read or if this book just gonna fall short. 🤷🏼♀️
I haven't decided what I'll read. Matthews did a really stupid thing. Really stupid. 🙁He's young but Crosby was also young and didn't do something so stupid or he didn't get caught.
1. The Gilded Wolves - just started
2. We were supposed to head to FL for a week's vacation with my parents, but Hurricane Dorian may derail those plans. Will still start tomorrow, but may end up somewhere different.
3. Mint chocolate chip. Or mango sorbet. Or pralines and cream. Mmmmm ice cream!
4. I have a BA in music. Violin is my main instrument, passable at piano and working at ukulele for story time!
5. Will do!
This YA heist falls into that land of “I liked it, but I didn‘t love it.” While it‘s an ensemble cast, the main character is clearly Séverin. That‘s unfortunate for me, because I found him completely unlikable. I also never really found him a believable character. Most of the rest of the cast is a lot of fun, and I‘d gladly follow their stories, but I‘m not interested in suffering through Séverin‘s story for it.
I would like to present my mostly #owlcrate TBR pile for tomorrow‘s #24in48 readathon.
Also, how great is my new Jurassic Park art from @buttongeekart.

This book took me a long time to finish, but I'm glad I did. 3⭐ mostly from the plot being confusing- I liked the characters though! And the cover is a work of art
I haven't been posting much on here, but I have been reading a lot!! 😊😁📚
