Next up on books with hard due dates are Dead Dead Girls and Breathless. I‘m hoping to get more read, but these are my “musts”. Crossing my fingers that I can make a good dent in, if not finish, Dead Dead Girls today. The next 87th Precinct novel will probably be my audiobook for the week.

Cinfhen Im thinking of reading it for #Algeria 24h
DGRachel @Cinfhen It‘s my choice for Algeria. I‘ve had trouble focusing on it, but that‘s not the book‘s fault. I like the format and the writing. I just need to stop picking up easier/faster reads. 23h
Cinfhen I hear ya….I‘m gonna look to #BorrowNotBuy 23h

This feel-good pandemic memoir didn‘t quite do it for me.

Melissa and her husband bought a fixer upper in upstate New York before the pandemic hit. This is the story of her and hubby‘s life going back to the farm and being (mostly 🤷🏻‍♀️) Covid safe. Interesting that she and Jennifer Grey had the same neurosurgeon. She has some Half Pint encounters with animals, which were cute, but definitely a #BorrowNotBuy imo.

Cinfhen I heard so-so reviews on this one - I think I‘ll pass 2d
Suet624 Why did she and Grey need neurosurgeons? 2d
Megabooks @Cinfhen I can support that. 😉 1d
Megabooks @Suet624 both were in accidents that caused cervical disc problems. 1d

The blending of the authors family history plus her foray into genealogy: tracing, discovering and documenting her journey sounded like the potential for a perfect book. Unfortunately, I found the format confusing; I had difficulty keeping track of her family tree and I found Maud‘s research into genetics, genealogy, DNA, and a host of other tangents overwhelming, redundant and slightly dry. It‘s #BorrowNotBuy for me 🤓

TrishB I‘ll leave for now! 3d
Centique But the FLOWERS! 😂😂 You know me, sidetracked by the flowers again. Look at those purple streaks 😍 3d
Cinfhen You get me @Centique im all about the flowers too!!! They bring me so much happiness 💐💐💐💐💐 yeah, I think it‘s ok to wait for another one of your fabulous #UKKindleDeals @TrishB 😉 2d
Megabooks Wow!! Those flowers!! I bailed on this early. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ 2d

Here‘s my review for another book I borrowed from #primereading. This short story is from #amazonoriginalstories. This is from the short story collection The Real Thing. All of these stories can be read or listened to in 1 day. After the last book I read, I really need some shorter books to read.

I‘m not sorry I read this book, but it wasn‘t what I was expecting. It‘s not a fast paced “thriller” by any means. It‘s more about US policy, politics and bad governance. I enjoyed Bahni Turpin‘s narration. 3 stars #ReadingAfrica22 #BurkinaFaso

TrishB I couldn‘t finish this one. 3d
ChaoticMissAdventures I could finish this either, but it sounded so interesting. I do love Bahni Turpin... Maybe the audio is better than the physical? 3d

BarbaraBB Glad i didn‘t buy it for you. I liked it but I often like political novels. 3d
Cinfhen Definitely try audio @ChaoticMissAdventures because there was an interesting story here, it was just slow going and meandering at times but Bahai‘s voice is so melodic @TrishB so I just enjoyed listening to her. 3d
Cinfhen I wasn‘t expecting a political novel @BarbaraBB that‘s a good way to define it! But I liked it enough not to bail😜 3d
Librarybelle Great description of it! 🔼 I also liked the “I liked it enough not to bail” comment 😂 3d
Cinfhen Haha @Librarybelle I‘m not afraid to bail so if I was REALLY not liking the book I would have easily bailed!! 3d

Here‘s my review for another book I borrowed from #primereading. I decided this month that I want to focus on reading the books that I‘m borrowing from #primereading because I‘m borrowing so many books from there.
