First time secondreader of this Author, she had me guessing myself throughout, but I was right all along

Finding Mr. Write | Kelley Armstrong
post image

I'm proclaiming this my favourite book of 2024 - Exactly 6 months into the year. Kelley Armstrong has been my favourite author for any number of years because of the way she writes full and beleivable characters, even in unbelievable situations. This one is a rom-com, which is new for her, but it definitely did not disappoint. The characters are still great, and the situation was almost entirely realistic to me. Drfinitely recommend. #37-2024

A spicy finish to Sonali Dev‘s Jane Austen inspired series. The Rajas and their extended family all have dreams that they work hard to make reality without leaving much time for love and romance. 3.25🌟

Tamra It would be interesting to watch a documentary featuring a largish sample of long term married couples from a variety of backgrounds talk about what they believe makes their marriages work. Husband & I are on #37 this year. 😁 1mo
JamieArc My spouse and I hold the concept of turning towards one another at the center of our marriage. We were introduced to this by Gottman. We love his work. 1mo

#TLT #threelistThursday

Thanks for the tag, @dabbe

Yikes, only 16! Of course, a lot of my favorites didn‘t make the list, like Dave Brubeck‘s Time Out, or the Carpenters‘ Then and Now. And there‘s no Jimmy Buffet! A lot of my listening is classical, which will never make the top 100 for Rolling Stone 😄. But this was fun.

TheBookHippie My favorite daily classical music never hits these list either. Jazz will occasionally. 2mo
Lynnsoprano @TheBookHippie Exactly! Miles Davis and Coltrane were on the list, but that‘s it. Our church band has been on a Jobim binge lately; I got to sing Desafinado a couple weeks ago 😀 2mo
TheBookHippie @Lynnsoprano Oh how lovely!!! 2mo

dabbe @TheBookHippie @Lynnsoprano ... I was amazed at the Carpenters, too. And only 1 Led Zepp! Are these people at ROLLING STONES complete music snobs? 🤩😂😀 2mo
Lynnsoprano @dabbe I‘m trying to figure out the list, because the Eagles‘ Hotel California is supposedly #37 on The Rolling Stones top 500 albums. But it‘s not in the top 100? 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
dabbe @Lynnsoprano They have a top 500 album list and a top 500 song list. Maybe it's on the song one? 🤔 2mo
Lynnsoprano @dabbe I figured out the discrepancies. Rolling Stone updated the list in 2020. Hotel California moved from 37 to 118, and I‘m sure plenty of others moved, too. Clearly I was looking at an older source. 2mo
dabbe @Lynnsoprano Wow! That's quite a drop! Especially if Kanye West moved higher up than that! 🤩😂😀 2mo

#TLT #ThreeListThursday @dabbe

My score? 37/100! 😳 I couldn't believe how many I hadn't even heard of! I definitely want to revisit all of the Beatles' albums, but I'm going to attempt to listen to each album--at least two songs on each album! 😂

Tagging people who've played #TLT before. Here's the link for the List Challenge:

Good luck! 🤩

slategreyskies 41 for me! How have I never heard of so many of these? 🤯 😳 2mo
The_Penniless_Author 58 for me. Maybe more, as there are a couple where I'm sure I've heard more than one song just listening to the radio. 2mo
dabbe @slategreyskies I thought the same! Over half of them I was like 😳! 😂😂😂 2mo

dabbe @The_Penniless_Author 58% is excellent for this list challenge! I'm envious! 🤩😂😀 2mo
The_Penniless_Author I think it should be higher. I didn't count either Springsteen album, even though I KNOW I've heard at least two songs from each. Same with Aretha and Marvin Gaye. I was more going off of whether I ever sat down and listened to the album itself, but some of these it's almost impossible not to have heard at least a couple songs just by existing in the world 😅 2mo
Bookwomble 60% 🎸 2mo
AnnCrystal Thanks for the tag ☺️👍. 2mo
dabbe @The_Penniless_Author Yet for me over half of them I didn't even recognize the group/singer! Yikes for me! 😱 2mo
dabbe @Bookwomble Pretty dang good! Not enough David Bowie on the list, though! 🤩 2mo
dabbe @AnnCrystal 🤩😀🤗 2mo
mcctrish I got 34/100 2mo
Read4life 36 for me 2mo
Amiable Um… 15. 😬 I‘m not really a huge music person. Weird, I know. My husband should take this instead of me! 2mo
dabbe @mcctrish We're almost twins! 🤩🤩🤩 2mo
dabbe @Read4life Almost twins! 🤩🤩🤩 2mo
dabbe @Amiable You should! I should have mine take it, too. He'd whip my butt! 🤩🤩🤩 2mo
AnnCrystal OK, I'm too ashamed to post 😂...2/100 • 2% 😜...seriously! LOL 😂.

Micheal Jackson x 2 😎👍.
CBee 74, but I wasn‘t sure about a few 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
dabbe @AnnCrystal Clearly none of your genres! No shame whatsoever! 🤩😀🤗 2mo
dabbe @CBee If you thought you heard a song, it counts! You kicked my butt! 🤩😀🤗 2mo
CBee @dabbe a lot of those are faves, like the Bob Dylan and Beatles albums 😁 And Stevie Wonder, love me some Stevie ♥️♥️ (edited) 2mo
Kitta Only 14 lots to listen too! 2mo
peaKnit We tied with #37. 2mo
dabbe @CBee I have to go back and revisit quite a few of these AND listen to the ones I've never heard of before! 💙💚💙 2mo
dabbe @Kitta That's the way I look at it, too! 🤩😀🤗 2mo
AnnCrystal @dabbe ☺️👍💝. 2mo
Ruthiella Thanks for the tag! 2mo
BookwormAHN I got 23. I did really well with the classic rock ones. There were some weird choices, though. 2mo
dabbe @Kitta I hear ya! 🤩🤩🤩 2mo
TheSpineView My score is 36/100. I'm in the same group as @BookwormAHN I did very well with classic rock but the newer stuff not so good. I have most of the albums from that time era. 2mo
jenniferw88 3! 😆 2mo
dabbe @AnnCrystal 💙💚💙 2mo
dabbe @Ruthiella 😘 2mo
dabbe @BookwormAHN I agree! Especially with the updated list! 😂 2mo
dabbe @TheSpineView We were close, too! 🤩😀🤗 2mo
dabbe @jenniferw88 Probably not your genres! 🤩😂🤗 2mo
CSeydel 24 for me. Most of these I‘m not super interested in. I‘m more of a folk/country gal 2mo
dabbe @CSeydel 24 ain't too shabby! 🤩🤩🤩 2mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick 49/100 I went through and made sure I knew at least 2 songs from each album. Some I was surprised didn't make the cut & others surprised me that they did. Only about 11 of these are anything I have been excited about at one time in my life or another. 2mo
dabbe @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Agree 💯. I thought I'd listen to the ones I had no clue on, but Kanye West? Nope. And there are others, too. 😂 2mo

An endearing book about how a bookstore brought people together during Covid in England, but it‘s quite sad at times. I loved the Book Pharmacy, what a fantastic idea!! Easy to read and beautifully written. I love my books and enjoyed reading about others who love reading also. I didn‘t realize this was a sequel and didn‘t feel like I missed anything in not reading the first book. Book #37 in 2024

#ReadAway2024 @Andrew65 @DieAReader @GHABI4ROSES

I finished book #37 of 150 yesterday. I think I will have to change my goal to 200 at some point if I can continue at this pace. Still stuck on romance books.

Itchyfeetreader Fort the last few years after a horrific slump in 2020 and 2021 I have set a purposely low number. Counter intuitively I read more! 5mo

lil1inblue @Itchyfeetreader I did this last year! Once I met the goal, I'd increase it by just a few more. It really got me out of my slump! I set a more realistic goal this year, so we'll see how it goes. 😉 5mo

The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah

First time I read a book by this author, can you believe it?😳I have this book since 2018 thinking that I would not like it...but...
This book is intense and has the trigger of domestic violence. It is very explicit in the physical and psychological abuse. I will say this part was clinically well described. Also it was symptoms related with PTSD were well described.

Ernt and Cora married very young, Cora was 15 or 16 and Ernt was 25.⬇️

Gissy Cora hast not siblings and her parents didn‘t approve her marriage with Ernt. Cora said that Ernt changed after he came from the Vietnam War where he was captured and tortured. Cora asked him not to d listed. Since Ernt return, he cannot maintain a job, drink too much and has mood outburst. He maintains his family isolated. He inherited a home in Alaska and decided to move there with Cora and their 13 year old daughter Leni. ⬇️ 6mo
Gissy (Cont.) Living in Alaska turned Ernt into an abusive husband but also in Alaska Cora and Leni found good supportive friends. The story goes narrating what Cora and Leni lived with Ernt abusive behavior. Then something happens that the lives of Cora and Leni changed. Not much to say after this without spoiling the story.
I will say that it was hard to read in these parts and I felt frustrated with Cora decision even when I know...⬇️
Gissy (Cont.)...her behavior is part of that abusive relationship cycle. The co-dependent relationship between these characters is so dysfunctional. In real life, is worst. I didn‘t like one part at the end which I think was unrealistic. The end? Well I will like to think that there will be hope in this type of relations. But how realistic was the end? I don‘t know. 3.8/4⭐️ 6mo
