The Night Olivia Fell | Christina McDonald
post image

After her teenage daughter Olivia falls from a bridge and ends up brain-dead, Abigail is desperate to understand what happened. Overall a solid, enjoyable mystery, but I did have a couple of small issues with it. The medical scene at the end was not realistic, which pulled me out of the story, and comments like “skin toned folders” just don‘t belong in books in 2019. #oliviabuddyread

Cinfhen This book is in a box , on a ship bound to me..... (edited) 5h
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen Are you trying to hypnotize me into a swap? 😂 4h

Cinfhen I‘m gong to be laughing all day 4h
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen Oh now that‘s funny! Oops. 😬 Sucks about your books though. Waiting for books is agony! 4h
Cinfhen I was told up to 8 weeks but now the shipping company is telling us to expect the boxes mid November 😫 2h
Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen That‘s insane. Next time, bring an empty suitcase that you can bring back filled with books and avoid this crap! 1h
Cinfhen Well.... we arrived with 4 pieces of luggage we left with 7 and we were only allowed one each, so shipping boxes seemed like a good solution, since those are priced by cubic meters not weight. As it was we had to pay for 4 extra bags 🙄 #BookNerdProblems 1h

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I loved this surprise of a novella. The story pans around a family during a big day in the life of their granddaughter and tells how they all came to be where they are. The writing was gorgeous and built to something small but significant.

ManyWordsLater I‘m reading this now! SO GOOD! 1d
thebluestocking @ManyWordsLater Right? Love the writing. 💙 1d
BarbaraBB Stacking! Just read @cinfhen ‘s review too. Equally enthusiastic! 19h

Thank you so much @BarbaraBB for this wonderful book. Once I started reading the story of young Hattie & her twins I couldn‘t put the book down. Each chapter focused on one of Hattie‘s 11 children as the years move from 1925 - 1980. A remarkable story but still lots of unanswered questions #BookClubWorthy

BarbaraBB I am happy you liked it! Thinking of some other books to share with you! 1d
Cinfhen You‘re so sweet @BarbaraBB but I still have a few books you‘ve gifted me that I haven‘t gotten to yet 🙈 1d
BarbaraBB Same here 🙈😘 1d
Cinfhen Hahahahaha @BarbaraBB #BookNerdProblems ♥️😘 1d

I‘m meant to be on a #BookBuyingBan until December 1 BUT this is a book I started from the library and didn‘t have time to finish PLUS it‘s really a bday gift for a special Litten 🎁💝So if your name starts with a T and ends with an H and you live in Liverpool don‘t buy this book 😜and I hope you‘re cool with me reading the last 150 pages 😘

Cinfhen @TrishB if you ALREADY own this one and someone else buys it for you please let me know 😊There‘s always a chance for that happening 😘 2w
erzascarletbookgasm I love this cover, different from the one I usually see. True, Cindy 🙃 And I was just thinking whether I should inform @TrishB to STAY AWAY from her TBR wish list till bday is over! 😊 (edited) 2w
TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm I have also been warned at home! I literally haven‘t brought a book for weeks....picking up my Philip Pullman one later as I had that preordered. But I‘m being good....-and I don‘t have this one either 😁 2w

Reviewsbylola December 1 😱😱 2w
Cinfhen Yes!!!! December 1. It went into effect September 1 and I‘m having a HARD TIME. Of course my monthly subscriptions don‘t count nor do #KindleDailyDeals or birthday gifts for others 😉 @Reviewsbylola @Mdargusch 2w
Mdargusch I‘m so proud of myself because I‘m plowing through the books I own! I decided not to do anymore challenges and just read what I want from my shelves and it has helped me cut out my book buying dramatically! But then there‘s those pesky book club books. 🤣 2w
Cinfhen There is something nice about reading books you own @Mdargusch !!! I‘ve discovered a few gems on my shelf!!!! 2w

You know you might have a problem when Hubby is watching TV & you only look up from your book when you spot the actor holding a book. #booknerdproblems #bookontv

Billypar I had a similar thing happen to me recently. My fiancee is watching a show in the other room, and I hear it spoil the ending of a book I'm currently reading (!) She was so apologetic, but I just thought it was funny 😁 3w
Sharpeipup @billypar that‘s funny. 3w

The app telling me my next hold will not be available before the end of November is where my #BooknerdProblems begin.

Because: Look, what I could download today because it was available to me.

Yes, I‘m happy because I waited quite long for this one to be my turn. But I also feel a bit rushed 😶 because I now need to get two and a half audiobooks done in a little more than two weeks.

Littens, it‘s time for #BooknerdProblems.
Yesterday, I was browsing my library instead of sleeping and thought I could take this one with me because I am halfway through volume 3, “Edges of Eternity”, the final volume of Ken Follett‘a “Titans”-saga.

Before I did borrow Mr Obama, I purposely checked my holds and the app told me my next hold will not be available for me before the end of November.

This little sweetheart is either getting a cold or working on a tooth - either way, she‘s not happy and insists she needs to sleep on me. I‘m super into this book right now but keep having to put it down and rest my arms... #booknerdproblems #momproblems
