This was a short book by JANE Austen. It was full of mismatches and trickery by Lady Susan. Very entertaining! #100YEARS100BOOKS #100!!! #BookSpinBingo #4 #BFC21 #2 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #27 #Classics #LITSYSUMMERCAMP #AwesomeAugust #THEROYALREADATHON Olaf

Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry | Mildred D. Taylor

First book of August! This book is a must-read. It tells of a black family in the south struggling to survive, dealing with racism and “the way things are”. Excellently done. Don‘t miss reading/listening to the Author‘s note at the end. It made me cry. I want to read the rest of the Logan family books now. #100YEARS100BOOKS #99 #BookSpinBingo #BS #11 #BFC21 #1 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #26 #THEROYALREADATHON #SERIES2021 #LITSYSUMMERCAMP #1

I have wanted to read this book since March when I first heard about it. I finally managed it. It seemed very long, but then ebooks often seem long to me. The story was sweet at times and the effort to protect children from people that would take advantage of them was admirable. #100YEARS100BOOKS #98 #BookSpinBingo #19 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #25

This book is from our local library and it was a wonderful read about Martha Washington‘s life. It portrayed her as a strong woman, very empathetic and a fierce protector of her family and especially George. The inclusion of many things about their daily lives were very interesting and made me feel I could understand her better. She loved being a mother. #100YEARS100BOOKS #97 #BookSpinBingo #12 (Bingo!) #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #24 #FIRSTLADIES

Finished listening to this one on my way there and back to a weight loss clinic. That probably doesn‘t matter at all, but this was such a sweet story and I will never hear, “Don‘t you wish you were here?” In the same way again. If you need to lift your spirits, read this book. #100YEARS100BOOKS #96 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #23 #BookSpinBingo #21 #THANKFULATHON #BOOKED2021 (color)

I‘m really glad I chose this book for #LMPBC - Group R! It is a “proper romance” with a dashing hero and a lovable heroine. I loved it. I can‘t wait to read more of her work. #100YEARS100BOOKS #95 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #22 #BookSpinBingo #25 #SERIES2021

These “Poor Relations” series books by M. C. Beaton are so funny! I love the characters. Miss Tonks is such a sweetheart and so inept at crime - it‘s adorable. I loved it! #100YEARS100BOOKS #94 #BookSpinBingo #4 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #21 #BOOKED2021 (120 pgs) #SERIES2021

Wow! This book was amazing! To all my fairytale retelling lover friends: you have to read this! It‘s a retelling of Sleeping Beauty with great twist. Rose wakes up in her stasis tube after a teenage boy accidentally activates the revitalize sequence. She‘s been asleep for 62 years. Her family is dead and she has to adjust to this world. Great! #100YEARS100BOOKS #93 #BookSpinBingo #BS 20 #BFC21 #7 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #20 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE

Another great story of remarkable women serving their countries and the trials they went through to get it done. Great characters, intriguing story! It added to my fascination with stories of women who were spies! #100YEARS100BOOKS #91 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #18 #BookSpinBingo #6 #BFC21 #5

This is a wonderful version of the classic The Great Gatsby. The illustrations are so perfect and period-true. Of course, the story ends the same way, but reading it in this form was worthwhile. #100YEARS100BOOKS #92 #CLASSICS #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #19 #BookSpinBingo #13 #BFC21 #6
