How about a #WeekendlyForcast? I was looking ahead and made a collage early.👍🏻

Enjoying Small Angels as I continue getting into gothic fiction. Really looking forward to One‘s Company arriving tomorrow. Excited about Elena in print too for #WomenInTranslationMonth.

On audio, I had to jump on Pathological, which is today‘s Audible daily deal. I also have two fantasy (crazy for me!) and some true crime (also unusual). 🤞🏻 it comes together! ⬇️

Megabooks @swishandflick made me aware of the Book Outlet fiction sale, and I picked up 12 books for $68 including tax. 🙌🏻 I didn‘t *need* any books, but since when has that mattered? 🤣🤣🤣 2mo
Cinfhen Yesssssss❗️loving all this…. Can‘t wait for the reviews 💖 2mo
ChaoticMissAdventures Oh! I have One's Company from the library and have not started it yet, it sounds fascinating! 2mo

BarbaraBB Ambitious plans! Have a good weekend! 2mo
Chelsea.Poole Looks like some great reads ahead of you! I‘m curious about Deer Creek and Raising Lazarus. 2mo
Megabooks @Chelsea.Poole yes, looking forward to both! Dopesick wasn‘t my favorite opiate crisis book, but I‘m interested in what she has to say in the sequel. (edited) 2mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen it‘s going to be a good week! One‘s Company just arrived while I was making dinner. @britt_brooke was right - the metallic cover is stunning! 2mo
Megabooks @ChaoticMissAdventures I can‘t wait to start! 2mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB they‘ll probably completely change! 🤣🤣 2mo
britt_brooke @Megabooks Total #coverlove 🤩🤩 Can‘t wait to hear what you think! (edited) 2mo
BarbaraBB I hope you‘ll read Elena! 1mo
BarbaraBB By the way, it takes a long time for my parcel to arrive 🤔 1mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB I plan on Elena for sure! Probably towards the end of the week. Yes, I‘ve been watching for your package. Molly massively alerts us (like it‘s the only indoor barking she does) when the mailman comes, and one of us is always home, so 🤞🏻🤞🏻 it arrives soon. Thank you for sending it! 1mo

Cute short story collection about a fantastical neighborhood in Japan. The magical realism was fun and the 4-5 page looks into the neighbors‘ lives kept the pace moving. Enjoyable and good if you‘re looking for some more lighthearted Japanese literature.

Book 2 for #WomenInTranslationMonth 👍🏻
Also works for #FoodAndLit #Japan

mcctrish I got this for Christmas and enjoyed it a lot ( also the cover is 😍😍😍) 2mo

Finished So Long a Letter. Good for #womenintranslationmonth and #readAfrica

Finished The Four Winds (at 2:00 am a few days ago) and it‘s another moving #historicalfiction from this author.

I was also a little acquisitive this week and read bits and pieces from several books.

#bookreport

Cinfhen Well done 😊💖🙌🏻 2mo
