This week IJ kicked my butt. I just wasn‘t feeling it. Both Damnation and Mean Baby are minor disappointments so far. Sigh.

Looking forward to next week! I‘ve got How High We Go #reread for #CampLitsy, Basic Black for #NYRBBookClub, and 7 Days for #SummerHeat. It‘s always fun to read with friends! I‘m trying to get more fiction in, but my library‘s nonfiction audiobooks have been 🔥🔥 this month. Wild Places is a #BlameItOn @Chelsea.Poole 😁

ChaoticMissAdventures I struggled with Damnation. It is close to the culture I was raised in so I thought I would be interested but the entire thing dragged. 1mo
Cinfhen Nice forecast!! Lots of goodies on deck 🤩 1mo

Megabooks @Cinfhen thanks!! 😘 1mo
Megabooks @ChaoticMissAdventures yeah, my dad owned a lumberyard when I was growing up, so some of it I get, but it doesn‘t need to been over 400 pages! 1mo
IamIamIam Oh man, I was really looking forward to Mean Baby! I have the audio on hold at the library. 1mo
vivastory 👏👏 for buddy reads. Feel free to join in the June & July NYRBBookClub. In June we read 1mo
BarbaraBB Great plans! And you are going to reread How High. How good! I‘m not sure if I will… I didn‘t like it much and have so many books waiting I‘d rather read. Do you think I should? 1mo
Chelsea.Poole I just checked out Damnation Spring on audio. 😬 1mo
Chelsea.Poole Also, hope this one works for you! I think it was the right book at the right time. After several nonfiction titles l was ready to really shake things up and not think too much. (edited) 1mo
Megabooks @IamIamIam yeah, it just didn‘t hit me right. I‘m still thinking it through. I don‘t think it‘s bad, but maybe not right for me. The crying at emotional parts of the audiobook sounded fake to me, which was annoying. 1mo
Megabooks @vivastory thanks! I really appreciate you including me! 1mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB I am. I liked it, and I don‘t remember a lot of the specifics of books, especially if I initially read them on audio. It‘s probably fine if you don‘t reread. I guess I just want to be over-prepared for our first week. I was always that kid in school! 😂😂 1mo
Megabooks @Chelsea.Poole yeah. It was too long…just kind of dragged…I didn‘t like the ending. Some of the characters were absolutely abhorrent! I don‘t know. Just kinda didn‘t work for me. I have it at 3⭐️ now but I‘m still thinking about it. 1mo
Megabooks @Chelsea.Poole I don‘t have high expectations for wild places, but I was looking for a no brain needed fiction audiobook. 👍🏻 1mo
BarbaraBB That is so nice of you! @squirrelbrain will be happy- especially since I probably won‘t be the best co-host for this specific book! 1mo
squirrelbrain Ha Meg, I was always that kid in school too! You don‘t need to re-read @BarbaraBB - I‘m sure you‘ll make valuable contributions anyway. 1mo

I have been waiting ALL DAY for UPS to deliver this! Now it‘s 5:30 and I have to start dinner in 15 minutes!! 😩 #BookwormProblems

And this one is a #BlameItOn @vivastory 🤞🏻 it‘s as good as 56 Days!

MicheleinPhilly I need to look into this author. I kept confusing her name with that of an author whose books are always free on Kindle. Also Catherine Ryan something. 10mo
vivastory I feel fairly confident that you will like it! Also Abby at Crime By The Book on IG had a great interview with CR Howard that is worth checking out 10mo
vivastory @MicheleinPhilly I think you'd like her. I've read 3 of her books (Nothing Man, Rewind & 56 Days) in a little over a month 10mo

Cinfhen Enjoy!!! 10mo
Megabooks @MicheleinPhilly I know you don‘t do BOTM anymore but keep an eye out for 56 Days on kindle. It just came out, so it‘ll probably be in there as a daily deal sometime between Halloween and thanksgiving. I really enjoyed it, and I think you would too. I know you like those thriller daily deals! (edited) 10mo
Megabooks @vivastory thanks for the heads up! I got in 10 pages before dinner and now I‘m sitting down with it again. Promising start!! 10mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen thanks! Just got your email. I will write back later tonight. 👍🏻💜 10mo
TrishB I‘ve liked all her books so far! 10mo
Megabooks @TrishB I am enjoying this one so far! He book really propel you into the story. Very gripping! 10mo

#TeamSlaughter @Clwojick finished this thriller #Blameiton @Liberty found audio on Scribd after hearing Liberty talk about it and Loved This! I am going to say it is The Hills Have Eyes with Stephanie Plum and Lula if Rex were a coonhound! Funny, creepy, really great narrator for the audiobook- I laughed out loud between the frightening bits! Grandma who hated everyone and hoarded babydolls dies and Mouse and her dog Bongo have to clear the mess!

(Day 11 - #OverMyShoulder)

*Gabriel Allon has been looking “over his shoulder” for going on 19 books now. That‘s what happens when you become an undercover agent for Israeli intelligence. An art restorer by trade, Allon is a bit of a reluctant asset. He usually has to be persuaded to come out of his comfortable life as an art restorer. The tagged book is the first in the series.

TrishB A great series 👍🏻 3y
gradcat @TrishB I seem to like a lot of the same books as you, & I agree with you 100%! 3y
Cinfhen I love LOVE this series 3y

gradcat @cinfhen MGM tv acquired the rights in 2017...wonder when it will happen? And, yes, of course, the $64,000 question—who will play Gabriel? @squirrelbrain @TrishB ... and @MellieAntoinette Good for you—I hope you enjoy the book! ♥️ 3y

#Bookhaul #Bookmail 📚👏🤓.
Feed is a #blameitonlitsy purchase for my husband. I‘m always on the lookout for new dystopian fiction for him.
Room On Our Rock is a #blameiton @Jeg 😂. Bought it for my niece‘s birthday.
Bastard Out Of Carolina was recommended recently by a good friend.

I am very excited to get my hands on the tagged book, a seminal rewriting of history that challenges the hunter gatherer view of Australian Aborigines 👊❤️💛🖤.

Rissreads Great, now I have another book to add to my tbr list. I love dystopian fiction too!!!! 4y

Another meticulously done and well-thought-out mystery in the Sebastian St Cyr series. A noblewoman is found dead in Prinny's arms, as discontent with the House of Hanover grows. Is someone covering up for the Prince Regent, or did someone else kill the lady?

This series is definitely a #blameitonlitsy, #blameiton @robinb! 😜

Deep musical thought for the day: "Plastic" is used to mean cheap or fake or valueless. "Vinyl" is used to mean authentic and valuable. But vinyl is just a type of plastic.

Lindy Now I've got that Marsha Raven I Like Plastic song in my head. #blameiton @Yossarian 5y
Dylangrrl Profound! Love it! 5y
