See my previous post... Oops shoulda been a review not a blurb 🤭. Great series!

Edit: A good portion of this book was #setoutdoors for #Booked2018

Cinfhen Well done!!! 1y

Although this took me a while to finish (mostly do to life stresses) I enjoyed reading this. You do have to enjoy first hand accounts which aren't always entertaining, but I found that I didn't want to put it down. There are parts that are slow, a normal thing for nonfiction, but overall it was an easy read when I had time. Read for #booked2018 #setoutdoors

I thought I actually might get through six prompts this quarter, but I didn‘t quite get there. Still, I‘m very happy with these five. Four of them are picks and two are currently in my top five for the year. 😄

#setoutdoors: Annihilation
#friendship: Lily and the Octopus
#BlameItOnLitsy: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
#LGBTQIAMC: Her Body and Other Parties
#NewIn2018: I‘ll Be Gone in the Dark

I thought this was a fascinating look at what weather prediction, especially hurricanes, was like before the advent of weather satellites. The way he weaves in the story of the personalities involved makes it that much better. This is my book #aboutenvironment or #setoutdoors for #booked2018 @4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage

Cinfhen I‘ve been wanting to read this book for awhile!! Glad to hear it‘s a a good one!! Congrats on getting the last prompt in💚 2y

Just started this one-literally only 15 pages in. Went on a short run and had a workout and I can‘t seem to stop thinking about it. Which is a good sign I think. It seems a little out of my comfort zone in terms of writing style (no dialogue yet!) but I‘m still liking it. I‘m thinking of using it for #Booked2018 #SetOutdoors

readordierachel That's a good sign! 2y
Cinfhen You have a few hours left to get it in for this quarter ❣️❣️😘 2y

For a little summer escapism, this did the trick. I probably won't remember much about it in a few months, but it was enjoyable enough. I listen to audio books while I run and it has been so blaming hot in Atlanta, that I enjoyed hearing about all of this snow while I was sweating.

I'm using this one as #SetOutdoors for #Booked2018

Cinfhen I used this book for that prompt too! It was an ok read for me, but it was a bookclub book so discussion did add a nice element. 2y

Roundup of my second quarter of #Booked2018. I'm having so much fun with these prompts - I'd never have found the steampunk-title if it wasn't for this, and it's /so good!/
#Setoutdoors: Wicked Bugs
#Steampunk: Castle in the Stars
#Friendship: You're Welcome, Universe
#Floweroncover: The Belles
#RefugeeMC: Exit West
#Childhoodfavourite: Cykelmyggen Egon

On to the next one! ♥

4thhouseontheleft Did you like The Belles? I just added that one to my TBR recently! 🎉🎉🎉 on finishing the 2nd quarter! 2y
okthislooksbad @4thhouseontheleft Loved it! It has the best villain I've come across in quite some time 😄 Thanks! 2y
