Mehso-so

I generally enjoy zombie related books, but while this one was entertaining in parts, it was also very dry in others. I did finish, but it took a long time to get through as it was too easy to put down. Finished last week but just now posting #Jumpstart2023

So happy to have finally read this! I've always come back to this story over the years but never made it to the book. Definitely written in a way that can make you feel how unsettled this family was. Do I believe this really happened or was it all a hoax? Meh, I'm pretty set on my mind I think but it's still one hell of a story!

This was on my list for a billion years and did not disappoint. I may have a "slight" obsession with the FLDS and Warren Jeffs so a new insight is always welcome. I do feel this went more into the history of the religion and not as much into the crime commited so I wish I would have seen more of that though

I swear these colours match better on the paper 😂

Huge controversy over this one but I enjoyed it. I don't see the blatantant slander that it's been cracked up to - just a man telling *HIS* story. Some great anecdotes, some less than needed 🥶🥶 but an all out prettt good read

Clwojick I know! This happens a lot with the colours. They match so good in person, and then I put them side by side digitally and they‘re off 😂 Darn colourshifting colours. Lol 3d
TheAromaofBooks Lots of royal-family reading this month!! 😂 3d

I have absolutely no idea WTF this was but I liked it and I think I had it somewhat sorted by the end? Maybe? Possibly?

That's it. That's the review 🤣🤣

I was sure the colours matched a lot more than it looks like it does in this picture but I'm keeping it anyway 🤷‍♀️

Let's see if I can get January's reads and challenges updated finally

I found this pretty good but not great. I have mixed feelings about the entire Diana drama in the first place and this book was definitely meant to be one-sided. It's just as I expected it to be 🤷‍♀️

Thanks @Clwojick and @Lizpixie for #Jumpstart2023 it was a fun month full of fun reads. I could only fit six on the grid but I can recommend all of them. Especially as a lot were #blameitonlitsy choices. This community has really opened my reading horizons. 🙏💚💚💚🐉

Clwojick Brilliant! Thanks for joining us! 4d
Dragon You‘re very welcome @Clwojick it really got me motivated to dive into an eclectic mix of books 🙌💚🙏 4d

I want to thank everybody who joined in with @Clwojick & I during #JumpStart2023 I know I had a great time, it definitely motivated me to read more & I know it motivated Cassandra(over 160 books? Damn girl!) I hope to see you all again next year joining us for 2024🙌 BTW, I‘ll be hosting a photo challenge in March for my birthday 🎉 & everyone who joins in will be in a prize draw at the end of the month. Hope you‘ll come join in the fun!🥳

Clwojick 118 books 😅 still ridiculous though. 😂😂😂 5d
Clwojick Thanks for being a fantastic cohost! This is easily one of my favourite events of the year. 💖 5d
Lizpixie @Clwojick back at you! Though I wasn‘t such a great cohost this year. Sorry lovely. I still had fun and read more books than I expected🙌Promise to do better in 2024💫 5d

Lizpixie @Clwojick Hope you join in my birthday challenge Cassandra👍 5d
Clwojick I‘m terrible at posting daily photos for them, and usually turn them into a mini reading challenge. I try to read books that fill the prompts within the month instead of posting the daily photos. Lol 4d
Lizpixie @Clwojick as long as you‘re posting books that relate to the prompts & add my hashtag that counts as an entry, no problem. Just working out the logistics this week💁🏻‍♀️ 4d
Lizpixie I‘ll probably do a bingo board as well 4d
Clwojick sounds great! I'll also be doing #MiddleGradeMarch :) SO MANY GREAT EVENTS THIS YEAR! 4d

Considering what January has looked like😫, I didn‘t do horribly, even without a Bingo. My #BookSpin & #DoubleSpin are #OpenReads, with 📚others😂🤷🏻‍♀️

My 2023 goal is to not let myself fall more than 2 books behind at a time.

I read a total of 4 books & 14 short🌶️🌶️🌶️shorts when 🧠power was not needed lol.

Andrew65 That;s brilliant, even more so when you consider your January. Be very proud of yourself 👏👏👏🥰 5d
DieAReader @Andrew65 Thank you my friend. Another work in progress (trying to not be so hard on myself all the time). I was actually taken aback by the number tbh. Seemed like I never had time to read but I guess it‘s all perception vs. numbers lol💜💜 (edited) 5d
TheSpineView Great job! 5d
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! Great month!!! 5d

I liked this much better than the last Beauty and the Beast retelling I read, and I agree with everyone else who thinks that Grey is the most interesting character!

This finished out #JumpStart2023 for a total of 9 books - one short of my goal, but not a bad showing!
