This was my night book, but I moved it to my walking book since I hadn‘t decided on a new walking book yet. I can‘t remember if I read it already or just saw the episode on the show. The sun was out today which was a shock because it‘s just been grey and rainy for the last couple of days. #audiowalk

This may be my favorite book of the series despite some grossness. The story is interesting, and we see Lou struggle with injuries and ptsd from the last case. Someone on Goodreads said she wasn‘t buying Lou‘s feelings for Sam and his for her because we aren‘t shown it — we‘re told it. I get that. Her relationship with her police partner, Colin, is more relatable because we‘re shown the things they do to care for and protect the other. #audiowalk

#Audiowalk: Got my booster shot today. I bundled up before heading out into a windchill of -26 C, with my headphones under the layers and my phone in an inner pocket to keep it protected from the weather.

BiblioLitten It was so chilly 🥶 today! 3d
LeahBergen Brr! I was just mentioning in my recent post that it was cold here, too. 3d
Lindy @BiblioLitten @LeahBergen It looks like this cold weather won‘t last. 😊 3d

Reggie Yikes, that‘s freezing. Glad you got boosted, though. ☺️ 3d
Cathythoughts Yes ! What @Reggie said ! Looking forward to getting mine soon 3d
Lindy @Reggie Thanks! Sore arm still this morning, but I know it‘s worth the discomfort. 3d
Lindy @Cathythoughts There‘s such a nice feeling of positive action connected to getting vaccinated. 😊 3d

Okay, I didn‘t think it was possible but this book just took an even grosser turn. Interesting story, but gross. #audiowalk

Reggie Can you put it in a spoiler just for those of us who want to know? Lol 4d
KathyWheeler @Reggie Sure. Here you go — cannibalism. Yuck. 3d

Okay. This book is making me itchy. Lou‘s case is the possible murder of a hoarder— in LA, in the summer with 100° temperatures and lots of humidity and no ac. There‘s lots of cats and cat waste and bugs. Ugh. I‘ll be glad when they‘re done with this crime scene. Yuck. The geese and turtles were out in the park today. #audiowalk

EvieBee That‘s a recipe for ripe rankness lol! 6d
KathyWheeler @EvieBee 😄. Definitely! 6d
Reggie My throat just closed up at the mention of hoarder and cat waste. 🤢 6d

This was definitely an Impulse read for #TeamGameSleighers as I kept hearing great things about this memoir. I enjoyed it and recommend for sure. I also finished this one while I was doing an amazing #audiowalk in the warm sunny weather to help with my mental/physical health. I think it was almost 80 degrees.

aperfectmjk 80 degrees! Jealous! 7d
Morr_Books @aperfectmjk I know! I couldn't believe when I walked outside. Loving it even if it won't last. 7d

Took an #audiowalk to my local library this morning, whilst listening to one #ToBlonglist book (Caul Baby).

Did a spot of weightlifting on the way home as managed to find 6 (mainly hardback!) books from the longlist.

I really should visit the real-life library more often, instead of relying on Libby… I really didn‘t expect to find so many #ToB books. There are a few more too that are currently out on loan so I‘ll need to request those.

Cinfhen Woohoo 🙌🏻 That‘s awesome!!! I MISS going to the library SO MUCH!!!! Happy reading 🤓Keep us posted on your #ToBLongList thoughts 1w
TrishB Great mornings work 👍🏻 1w
Caroline2 Oh I saw outlawed on a kindle deal this morning. I‘m umming and ahhing as to whether I‘d like it as it sounds a bit weird?! 🤔 1w

squirrelbrain Now I‘ve actually got some ‘proper‘ work to do @TrishB - how dare they when I have books to read?! 🤣 1w
squirrelbrain Depends @Caroline2 …. If it was 99p I‘d just go for it anyway! 🤷‍♀️ 1w
Crazeedi What's the #ToBLongList? And I'm happy to see Carnegie library in your country!! He did leave a legacy 1w
squirrelbrain @Crazeedi - apparently there are a lot of Carnegie libraries in the UK. ToB is the Tournament of Books, a kind of knock-out competition for books. It‘s my first year playing along. 1w
MicheleinPhilly Good Neighbors is TERRIBLE. I‘d put that one at the lowest priority. 1w
BarbaraBB Gorgeous library and that haul is very attractive too! 1w
squirrelbrain Oh dear @MicheleinPhilly - I haven‘t heard anything bad about that one before! 😬 At least I should be better at bailing if it‘s a library book rather than one I paid for….. ETA - just looked at yours and @vivastory reviews - oh dear…! (edited) 1w
vivastory 🤣 I'll be *shocked* if Good Neighbors makes the shortlist. Months later it remains one of the worst I've read this year. 1w
vivastory That's great you found a lot on the long list! I placed holds on several yesterday. I hope to read the entire shortlist like I did this year 1w
MicheleinPhilly Scott and I seem to be in the minority. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1w
Ruthiella Great haul and good tip about looking into hard copies from the library when the ebooks are either not available or the hold lists too long. 👍 1w
squirrelbrain I‘m hoping that the books I‘m able to find / read will be on the shortlist @vivastory - with the exception of the dreaded Good Neighbors of course! 🤣 1w
Megabooks That‘s a great stack! 7d

This is the 3rd, and latest, book in the Magical Bookshop series and it‘s my favorite. I was surprised by some plot turns, but, although I was surprised, I wasn‘t at all shocked by who the murderer turned out to be. Since I finished this book on my walk, I started City of Saviors, the latest in the Elouise Norton series. #audiowalk

This is my favorite book in the Gethsemane Brown series even though it took a darker turn than had been the case with the previous books. It also introduced newer and darker occult elements that haven‘t been part of the series before. #audiowalk

One more walk should finish this book up. Then I won‘t know how long I‘ll have to wait for the next one. I intended to take a long walk at the park but I ran into a friend I haven‘t seen since our university first closed for COVID. We had a lot to catch up on, so my walk ended up being a short one as I didn‘t want to walk in the dark. #audiowalk
