Sorry I went kind of AWOL last week. I had a really overwhelming work week and just didn‘t have it in me to read much the rest of the week. Thanks again to everyone who joined me for #33by33 And while I didn‘t complete as many as I wanted to for #NovelNovember I did make a considerable dent in a few of my chunkster books. So that‘s a win. Today is a new day. Going to try to finish out the month strong no matter what.

BethM You got this! 2mo

I have some mixed feelings about this one, and am not even sure I can explain why haha What I loved - the humor, the side characters, the warm friendships, the PG-13 rating, and of course the setting of German Village in Columbus, referencing so many places (including the Book Loft!!) that I know and have visited. What I didn't like? I guess the MC's tendency to assume the worst of the male MC. Like she starts hating on him immediately with ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) literally NO reason to do so, because he was never anything but friendly & nice. He said ONE teasing thing to her & she takes it completely out context & turns it into a reason to completely distrust him - it honestly was super aggravating to have to listen to her complain about him when he actually has done NOTHING WRONG. But I enjoyed everything else (including having our skyline on the cover) so much that this has to get a pick. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks #33by33 - Hope you had a lovely birthday @MatchlessMarie !!! I didn't hit my overly-ambitious goal, but I did read 1408 pages during your readathon!!!

#NovelNovember - I'm sitting at 846/3000pgs @Andrew65 - I have some lighter reads lined up this week so I'm hoping to hit my goal!!
Andrew65 Brilliant 👏👏👏 2mo
MatchlessMarie Thanks for reading along with me!! 🧁 2mo

Yesterday I got in 5:10 hours of reading time. I finished The Woman in Blue, Claimed and started Sword and Pen.

#33by33 @MatchlessMarie Over the 5 days I read close to 33 hours. I forgot to set my timer the first day but know I read at least 5 hours though I believe is was somewhere between 6 & 7.

Total reading time for #NovelNovember @Andrew65 is 18:32. Coming along on 40 hour goal.

Andrew65 Doing great 👏👏👏 2mo

I didn‘t have as much time as I thought I would last weekend so I only finished the books I was in the middle of and bailed on one for all the Readathons. #33by33 and #AnyWayYouReadathon are done, but I‘m hoping to finish strong for #NovelNovember

Thank you hosts!!

Thank you @MatchlessMarie for hosting the #33By33 readathon. I almost made my goal of 25 hours reading, but I did finish 3 books, almost finished Under the Whispering Door (on the last chapter) and 27% of Eat A Peach.

MatchlessMarie Awesome job 🎉 2mo

Been a little quieter today because I‘ve been bouncing between books and am almost at my 33rd hour! Also I haven‘t given up on #DecemberChill yet. I actually am 25% in and I don‘t feel as lost now. Also I was surprised to see a hold come behind me so I‘m wondering if there‘s another San Antonio litten in our group 🙃 #33by33

Cinfhen Hehehe 😜 I‘m about 1/3 in and it‘s starting to make sense for me too!! It‘s just im not compelled to pick up the book once I put it down. 2mo
BarbaraBB You should almost think so! A wait list…! 😉 2mo
MatchlessMarie @Cinfhen Same. It‘s a good audio for focusing like on cleaning 😅 @BarbaraBB Maybe someone is really trying to think cold thoughts. Our highs are still in the 80s here 🥵 (edited) 2mo

The author is definitely a true believer, someone with an unshakeable belief in the existence of Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yeti. I found most of the book interesting, but at times it delved off subject talking of ghosts, UFOs, extra-dimensional travelers, time travelers, parallel universes, moth-men and skin walkers. 3 👣👣👣
3rd book finished for #33By33 @MatchlessMarie
2nd book finished for #NovelNovember @Andrew65

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 2mo
