This was an awesome #audiolisten! Fun, fast, and told podcast style with multiple narrators, the characters were authentic and diverse in their ideologies and backgrounds. Wasn‘t expecting that ending, but upon reflection, it totally fit. Definitely recommend it.

This was an #audiolisten and if I were reading a paper or ebook copy, not sure I‘d have finished. The narration was really good. The book description and what actually happens aren‘t quite in sync with each other. Did like the author interview call-in questions about the AGA. Made me chuckle a bit. Also liked that details of running the store were included. Not bad, but not what I was expecting. It was about a bookstore though, so points for that.

There‘s a bone goat! ❤️
Our heroine is strong and capable. Our hero lives with chronic pain, but doesn‘t let it hold him back. Plus, did I mention the bone goat? Loved it!

There are zombies and dancing and lost family and mild horror, plus hope and determination, and a slow burn romance that doesn‘t interfere with the quest or overshadow the story. Slow, sweet, fun read. Also, there‘s a bone goat! 🥰

Another enjoyable entry in the series. Harry passes a case he doesn‘t want to Cleo and it turns out to be more complex than just a cheating spouse. Once again, Cleo is determined to solve a murder, in spite of the social, gender and class issues of the day that work against her.

The #audiolisten was amazing. Can‘t think of a thing I didn‘t like about it. Yes, it was violent in places, but that fits both the characters and the people they‘re dealing with. Not the type to solve things with words. Really like how they stayed true to themselves throughout, but that they were still able to grow without changing the essential bits of who they were. Love, love, loved this one.

This was an #audiolisten and also my favorite of her books so far. Think she has definitely grown as a writer and person and found her voice. Look forward to seeing what she does next.

Listening to Alicia on audio was awesome! Plus, having her mom, dad, husband, and friends contribute was an unexpected surprise. Loved hearing her sing snippets of songs throughout the book. She covered life, love, creativity, writing songs, travel, activism, beauty, and learning to be true to herself. Excellent #audiolisten. The other audiolistens were good, but this was definitely a standout.

Loved this collection! For once, I‘d be hard pressed to pick a weak story. #Audiolisten from the library, but I‘m thinking of getting a print copy for a reread at a later date.

The blasé nature of the narrator is deceptive. At the end, you realize the scariest thing about this story is her. Enjoyed this #audiolisten a lot. This is my second short story from Lippman and I‘ve enjoyed them both.

Last reads of 2021. The tagged is a reread. Read paper copy years ago and now an #audiolisten. Some of the technology bits haven‘t aged well, but still like the story. Heyer was a quick romp and Velocity Weapon was a decent scifi. Really loved how it opened. Liked Sanda, but Biran took longer to warm up to.

Halfway through Travelling While Black so it‘ll transition me into my 2022 reading. Ready to tackle the 2022 TBR pile.
