#17 of Wimpy Kid series - a few funny moments but overall not as clever as many of the others. This one focuses on Rodrick‘s band Loded Diper seeking fame, with Greg joining in as a ‘roadie‘.

Book #17 of 2023: “The Beautiful Things that Heaven Bears” by Dinaw Mengetsu

A beautiful, sometimes melancholy, sometimes sad, sometimes hopeful story about a young man forced to flee his home in Ethiopia to build a new life in Washington, DC.

Trying to read my oldies☺️Beach mood
Adam and Eliza went to spend their summer vacation in Isle of Palms with their twins. There, Eliza by chance, met Eve, Adam‘s puppy love, Carl her husband, their daughter and Eve‘s mother. They then spend more summers together for years. This is a family/friends saga with a lot of drama, secrets, almost betrayals like this author used to write. It didn‘t finished as I predicted. It was fun. 3/3.5⭐️

Book read during #20in4 Readathon @Andrew65
2nd book in the trilogy and I have to say that more than half the book was slow, repetitive and sometimes boring. Almost at the end, it had a couple of twists that you want to read the third one. Can‘t say much in this sequel without spoiling the story. 3.5/3.75⭐️

Andrew65 Excellent 👏👏👏 Shame the book didn‘t hold together for the first half. I often find the second book in a trilogy can be the weakest. 2mo
Gissy @Andrew65 Yes, that has happened to me in various series, you are right 2mo

Here are my July picks for #bookspin. The only change from June is I‘ve replaced #12 and #17. Oh, and gussied up the font. 😜 2/3rds of them are e-books languishing on my iPad and the rest are shorter books on my shelves that I‘d love to get to.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 3mo

I listened this on Audiobook from Libby. The author narrated it. I found it to be just meh. It didn't really keep my interest until about 80% thru, then it really picked up. I did figure out the ending about 85% into it. It's really slow, but does pickup toward the end.

🙂 Happy Reading 🙃
