The inaugural read for the #GoldenAgeCrimeClub inspired me to reread more Christie. I really enjoyed this whodunnit. Miss Marple has to enlist the help of the remarkable Lucy Eyelesbarrow in her investigation. It all starts when Mrs. McGillicuddy witnesses a murder on a passing train.

I‘m using this for #pop23 (text only on cover) AND I thought I‘d tag along with @CBee ‘s #TBRTarot and use this for the January promt “Starts with a number”.

CBee Nice! I‘ll add you to my tag list 😊😊 4d
Ruthiella @CBee Thanks! Looking for yellow covers right now! 😂 4d

This was a lovely read, set in 1969, it has rock and roll, bands, romance, music, and tradegy. I guess it has Daisy Jones vibes.

squirrelbrain Good to know; I have this on Kindle and plan to read it for a #popsugar prompt. 4mo

Read for the #SummerHeat buddy read, but also because it sounded interesting and showed up on a list of books by a POC about joy and not trauma. Can I be honest? This didn't feel like joy. Sure, it's not tackling Jim Crow-era racism or slavery, but I found that the MCs, Eva and Shane, just had too many demons in all their baggage to really make this feel like joy.
This is a second-chance romance, told in the present, with sections going back ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick to their senior year in high school where they spent one tumultuous week together, bonding over their dubious decisions. While I think these characters are interesting, I never found myself truly rooting for them. Eva's 12 year old daughter Audre was a bit too grown up to be believable, but she added a fun element to some conversations. I appreciate that Eva represented for the people who have invisible disabilities, but again, ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick it seemed to add another element against feeling joyous once added to the list of possible trigger warnings in the book. I prefer my romances steamier and more light-hearted, so take this review with a grain of salt and a shot of tequila.

Celebrating that I finished my #PopSugar Reading Challenge for 2022! I just did the regular prompts, and officially finished on July 1. In past years, I was rushing to finish my last prompts in December.

I‘m thinking of doing the Advanced prompts now but I won‘t stress if not. I‘ve never done those before. It‘s nice to be able to read *whatever* for the rest of the year.

sprainedbrain That‘s awesome! 🎉 7mo

A storytelling battle between a cleric and a trio of tigers. How delightful, delicious, and fun. I love it when this oral tradition is honored and Vo did it very craftily. A wonderful fantasy with mammoth riders. #PopSugar

This was a very fun read! A delightful YA female centric spin on the various Penny Dreadful stories. I look forward to continuing the series at some point. 4⭐️

This is not on Litsy yet. This is book 2 of a duology featuring two serial killers and the girl who gets away. Very entertaining and satisfying conclusion. This is a dark romance and does have content warnings for childhood abuse and some kinky steamy love scenes. 4⭐️
