Saw this list yesterday and thought it would be perfect for #weirdwordwednesday. I particularly love the word “crapulence.” 😄

ShyBookOwl This is awesome. Never once did I wonder what the dot over an i or j was called, but I'm glad I now know 😄 3w
CBee Well, I definitely am experiencing #16 right now 😂😅🥱 3w

#16 in the Emma Griffin FBI Series. Not as good as the other ones, but I will still read them.

Katy‘s mother died and her world stopped. She decided to travel to Italy as she had planned but with the absence of her mother, who was supposed to go. She will discover herself in this travel.
I didn‘t expect that this novel would be a time traveling. This is a story of second chances.
I liked the atmosphere, you felt like you were there. I traveled too with the help of Google☺️But this character is so annoying⬇️

Gissy In my opinion her relationship with her mother was enmeshed (concept used in family therapy) with no boundaries in her personality.
I found that it was repetitive about how Katy felt about the lost of her mother. It is a short novel, only 253 pages and I don‘t know how many times she mentioned this situation.
I could say that is okay but I decided to put it in the category of picks because of how well the atmosphere was described. 3⭐️
Clwojick Oooo! Good catch! 🧡 2mo

Andrew65 Looks a good read. Well done 👏👏👏 2mo

Book #16: “how to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you” by Matthew Inman

Short, quick, and silly.

Some long series start to get dull or repeat plotlines, but CJ Box gets better and more exciting with every Pickett story he writes. This is #16 in the series and I barely took a breath the entire time I was listening. This one has a terrorism plot and features my favorite off-the-grid master falconer, Nate Romanowski. I listened while moving and unpacking my new house and the story kept me up on my feet. David Chandler‘s narration is perfect💯

This is the second book in the series and it takes place a year after the first book. Binti wants to go home but is faced with finding out who she and her family really are while facing difficulties of prejudices and gender roles. This was a good book but there were parts that I found myself zoning out. However, I do want to read the 3rd book. 3.5 ⭐️

#16 of #booked2023, #Afrofuturism

I'm using Okorafor's own term for her work, #Africanfuturism. They're not quite the same thing. Read her essay for more.

This book is difficult to classify. It's an alien-tech (magic?) folktale set in near-future Ghana. It speaks of power, and death, and loneliness, and surveillance, and corporate greed, and of being a young girl who is older than her years. But it's also more than that.

Title for #GuiltyPleasure is the next Anita Blake novel on my TBR (#16). Most reading this series agree that it‘s nowhere near as good as the first 8 or 9, but I just can‘t quit it. I go long periods between but I still enjoy them.
For tune, I‘m going with “Party in the USA.” When I worked in the office, I‘d turn the volume up and it would leak through my headphones and my neighbors would laugh at me and tell me to turn it down. ⬇️

Bookzombie I still love to turn it up when I hear it. 💃🏼 #TitlesandTunes 4mo
Cinfhen Such a catchy song 🎶 and I know what you mean about certain series….they‘re not really on the caliber any longer but you‘re too invested to stop reading 😁 4mo

Reggie It‘s funny, on Pandora I put on a Lil‘Kim channel and the 3rd song was I can buy myself flowers. Lol I didn‘t know there was a Miley-Lil‘Kim correlation. 4mo
Bookzombie @Reggie I didn‘t either, because Lil‘ Kim isn‘t on the album. Maybe it‘s another release. Now I have that song in my head. 💃🏼 (edited) 4mo
Reggie I don‘t think there is a connection. I think it‘s like when Netflix recommends The Care Bears movie after you watch Saw II. Lol 4mo
vivastory @Reggie Now I'm imagining a Care Bears/Saw mashup 😬 😂 4mo
Reggie @vivastory I would be surprised if robot chicken didn‘t have that crossover 4mo
vivastory @Reggie Good point lol Last night I watched a fantastic Korean movie on Shudder you might have seen: Monstrum. 4mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I feel the same about the Anita books. I‘m behind by at least 3 now but that also means I could binge a bit! 4mo

I will happily play, @CSeydel. 🤩😍🤗

Q: Is there a series you started out enjoying but just couldn‘t finish?
For me, it was the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich. I loved them and thought they were a riot, but I got about midway, and I became exhausted and just couldn't finish all of them. The writing pattern was by then too well-known and created ennui for me.

TiredLibrarian Same. I think I got to about #16 and it just got old, old, old. 4mo
CSeydel I wonder why I didn‘t get notified that you tagged me! Paging Litsy tech support … 4mo
CSeydel But yeah, it‘s funny how sometimes a series will just go cold, not because anything changed with the books, but just in your brain. Like when you put on perfume and after 30 minutes or so you don‘t smell it anymore. The receptors just go dark. 4mo

Deblovestoread I quit these as well. Loved the laugh out loud moments but the joy eventually petered out. 4mo
Bookwormjillk I couldn't take them any more either. I think I got to about book 20 and just couldn't keep reading. 4mo
dabbe @CSeydel I even double-checked to make sure I spelled everything correctly! What a great question, too! 🤩🤗😍 4mo
Dragon Same here- The Ranger / Morelli thing etc I stopped in the high teens ( team Ranger 🤣💚🐉) 4mo
CSeydel Thanks! And I did get a notification about the comment tag 🤷🏻‍♀️ 4mo
CSeydel And I‘ve thought about diving into the Stephanie Plum series, but I never have. Too many good detective series! 4mo
Blueberry Every couple years I might read another one if I want a laugh. 4mo
Bklover The Plum series and the Alphabet series! 4mo
dabbe @Bklover Are the alphabet one by Sue Grafton? I did the SAME thing with hers, too! I got about to the letter M I think and bailed. 🤣🤣🤣 4mo
Bklover Yes- Sue Grafton and this is so funny- I made it to M as well!😁 4mo
dabbe @Bklover They say ... #greatmindsthinkalike 🤩😍🤗 4mo
Bklover ❤️❤️ 4mo
