TrishB Have you recovered from Hobb? She‘s not very well with arthritis at the moment and has asked when she does book signings etc now she can‘t shake hands as so painful and may soon have to stop signings 😔 7mo
JennyM 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 7mo
Cinfhen Fantastic month 🤗🤗🤗🤗 7mo
Cinfhen Which was your favorite so far?? 7mo
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen aside from my rereads (Crimson Petal and Amber Spyglass), I really loved Assassin‘s Fate and Almost Love 👌 7mo
Kalalalatja @TrishB I have, but it took some time! And how awful for her. I don‘t really know how old she is, but I kinda forget that authors are real people, with real people problems, so something like this always takes me by surprise! 7mo

I know there‘s still another day left in January but I managed to read all my winter prompts for #Booked2019 ☃️💕☘️I think the rainy days and my family having the flu contributed to my extra reading time. I liked 3/6 books & I was able to knock off two past #BOTM picks I‘ve had for nearly 2 years!!! By the way as of today 306 books have already been logged in as read by Littens🎉🙌🏻‼️

Centique You‘ve done a fabulous job @Cinfhen tell your family I said you‘re a social media maven!😂😂 (Although it‘s also kinda awesome that Litsy flies under the radar with the IRL people that surround me!) 7mo

#BookMail #BookDepository This book arrived super fast!!! Less than a week🤩🤩🥳 Im hoping to use for #Booked2019 #GenreBursting or would it work for #PoCParanormal ??? Needing approval @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft and please weigh in my lovely Littens!!!!! Also, THIS bookmark 🥰☕️#Happiness

GatheringBooks your book depository orders arrive soooo quickly - mine takes forever (and a week) 9mo
Velvetfur I am in love with that bookmark, its so cute!! 9mo
TrishB Very quick! And love the bookmark 💕 9mo

Texreader Great book! 9mo
arlenefinnigan Would definitely work for #PoCParanormal, I read it for the #ReadHarder challenge of a sci-fi novel by a female author with a female protagonist. Loved it. 9mo
CoffeeAndABook Both the book & the bookmark are so *pretty* 🎀 I‘m sipping my morning coffee ☕️ & sending you a smile 😊 hope it‘s a good day 😘 9mo
Cinfhen I‘m really shocked @GatheringBooks it usually takes a solid month and that‘s if I‘m lucky!!! It‘s mind blowing how fast this one arrived!!!!! 9mo
Cinfhen You‘re not mean @TrishB you‘re smart!!! Now I‘m just pissed at my friend because she‘s insisting she returned it!! 🤬🤬😡#NotTrue 9mo
Cinfhen Hi @CoffeeAndABook I‘m good!! How are you??? Jet lagged ??? And thanks for the morning smile 🥰🥰🥰 9mo
Cinfhen The flip side of the bookmark says please share with a friend and it has a space to write a friend‘s name with a message!!! But it‘s too cute to share @TrishB @Velvetfur @Texreader 💕💕now who‘s the mean one??? 9mo
Cinfhen I was hoping someone would say this works for #Paranormal 🙌🏻💕 thanks @arlenefinnigan 💚💚💚 9mo
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen Yep, im STILL jet lagged, even after a week 🙄 why does it take so long? But the trip was worth it!! And being in Germany in December is one of my secret pleasures, dark, cold, wet & cozy & christmassy 🔥🌟📖☕️ ⬅️ this is supposed to be hot spiced wine 😉 So I‘m fine 🤩 9mo
Cinfhen Jet lag can take up to 2 weeks @CoffeeAndABook so just go with it!!! Glad you had an awesome time 💕 9mo
LauraBeth If this fits, I may read it as well! 9mo
4thhouseontheleft Definitely a 👍🏾👍🏾 for #PoCParanormal! 9mo
ElishaLovesBooks I read this and remember loving it! I think I want to reread it! 9mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage I was going to say it‘s more #genrebusting than #paranormal. Because to me, paranormal is more creatures and beings than time travel. But it‘s a fine line, and I‘d say go with the majority opinion. I hope you enjoy it! 😘 9mo
LibrarianJen I agree with @BarbaraTheBibliophage I think it‘s more genre busting. The book is about so much more than time travel. It could also be about civil rights, slavery, women‘s rights, historical fiction, etc. I feel you can‘t box it into one category. 9mo
saresmoore Less than a week?! That‘s gotta be a record! 9mo
erzascarletbookgasm Yay! My orders take between 6 and 8 weeks! Sometimes I forget what I ordered and when my books arrive, it‘s like surprise bookmail! 9mo
Cinfhen I know!!! I was shocked @erzascarletbookgasm @saresmoore but a book I ordered like 3 weeks ago still hasn‘t arrived yet 🤷‍♀️ 9mo
Cinfhen Lots of different opinions @LauraBeth so I‘ll read it and decide later on what prompt to use it for!!! I like having options @LibrarianJen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft @ElishaLovesBooks if you read it again that would work for #pop19 too!!! (edited) 9mo
kellyann28 Jotted this down for planning my #Booked2019 list. Thanks ;) 9mo
Cinfhen My pleasure @kellyann28 😃 9mo
Reviewsbylola This is a fun one. I‘ve not seen this cover before! 9mo
Cinfhen I love this cover @Reviewsbylola and I‘m excited to read this book after @Reggie discussed this book on a podcast last year!!! Ohhhh you could read this book @Cathythoughts for #PodcastRelated 9mo
Reviewsbylola Wait @Reggie has a podcast?! 9mo
Cinfhen No! I wish @Reviewsbylola 🥰🥰🥰 @Reggie was a guest on I think @ReadingEnvy last year 9mo
ReadingEnvy Such a good book. Reggie hasnt been a full guest yet (he's on the calendar now!) But maybe he mentioned it for best of 2017! 9mo
Cinfhen Yes! It was the best of 2017 podcast @ReadingEnvy I can‘t wait to hear @Reggie as a full guest!!!!! 9mo
ReadingEnvy @Cinfhen me too 🤸 9mo
ProfReader I can‘t wait to read this novel!!! 6mo
Cinfhen Me too @ProfReader It‘s my IRL April bookclub selection!!!! 6mo
