Having an unexpected week off from work due to cold I was able to read to my heart‘s content. True Biz gets 4 🌟 because I learned a lot about deaf culture more than liking the story itself. Both Love After Love and The Midcoast were great on audio.

Cinfhen Sorry you were home with a cold but hurray for EXTRA reading time 😎 12h
Megabooks I hope you‘re feeling better! 💜 9h

This wasn‘t a great week for reading. 🤔

I finished Renovated to Death. Imagine HGTV meets Murder She Wrote, if Jessica Fletcher were a gay couple. It was a fun read, but I don‘t know that I‘ll continue with the series if there is one.

I‘ve read a few chapters of some of the others, and I may set some aside for later…


Cinfhen I love your book description 😂😂 14h
tokorowilliamwallace Dodging and Burning, and A Ballad of Love and Death both sound like appropriate Cancer season reads, though. 12h

#BookReport 25/22

On audio I finished a #ReadingAfruca2022 book. In print, I read those three. All were good, but this week‘s favorite is Greengates!

Cinfhen I recently picked up this book on #KindleDailyDeal 15h
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen Looking forward to what you‘ll think. I am not sure if it‘s a book you‘d enjoy. 10h
Cinfhen Hmmmm, I‘m very curious now!!!! 10h
Megabooks Agree re: the swimmers @Cinfhen , but I hope you end up enjoying it! 9h

I finished some okay books this week, and one really good one (The Change) mostly on Sunday/Monday. Thanks to *waves hands*, I doubt I‘ll be able to focus much to read today. Too much rage and sadness. I‘m also probably going to bail on The Blessing Way. I‘m finding it tedious and the narrator doesn‘t help. #bookreport

Cinfhen The change was definitely a fun book and now it‘s feeling more like a rallying cry 😤 14h
DGRachel @Cinfhen Yes! I‘m so angry I feel like if I had Jo‘s super power I would burn the world down. 14h
Cinfhen I hear you!!! 14h
Eggbeater I am full of rage and sadness and fear, too. It is good to know I'm not alone. 9h
DGRachel @Eggbeater {{hugs}} You are definitely not alone. 9h

#BookReport - Solid week. I finished the checked books, plus the tagged book which I think may be hidden behind Wanderers in this photo haha Wanderers and Break-Up Book Club ended up DNFs for me this week, although I haven't decided if they are forever DNFs or temporary ones 😂 Currently reading The League of Gentlewomen Witches, which I'm hoping to finish today. Sacred Clowns was probably my favorite read of the week.

sherrisilvera I enjoyed Sacred Clowns also. You reminded me to look back at Hillerman. 17h
TheAromaofBooks @sherrisilvera - I'm working my way through the series quite slowly, but really enjoying these books a lot. I really like the contrast between Leaphorn and Chee and their life-perspectives and detective methods, how they are so different from each other yet both still bring a valuable perspective to the situation. 17h
sherrisilvera I had read only a few and so long ago. Have you tried the Longmire series? Those components are there as well. 16h
See All 9 Comments
Cinfhen Woohoo!!! Progress!!!! And how is it even possible that it‘s almost time to add your JULY books?????? 14h
Gissy I thought Wanderers was good, is in my old tbr😳 14h
TheAromaofBooks @sherrisilvera - No!! I haven't even heard of it - I'll definitely look them up!! 13h
TheAromaofBooks @Cinfhen - To clear the windowsill I only need to read 22 books by Friday, so that's totally doable, right?? 😂 13h
TheAromaofBooks @Gissy - I just don't think I was in the right headspace for it!! The concept does sound really interesting, so I might come back to it. 13h
Gissy @TheAromaofBooks Then, there is hope!☺️ 9h

#bookreport #mystery #policeprocedural #historicalfiction

Finished all but Ice Blue this week.
The Redbreast & Lost Roses ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A Death in Silversmith Bay, just a So-So, despite its quirky characters. The first in this series was better.
Last Stop Paris, between a pick & A waring about Violence. Again, I liked first in series better.
Just started listening to Ice Blue.

Cinfhen I can tell you‘re in #SummerReadingMode 😻 19h
