Finished decorating the tree (buggy helped 😁), baking “grinch” cookies (chocolate chip w some cherry chips and green food coloring 😜) for 2-and-a-half year old‘s daycare tomorrow... and reading an Alternate History (I‘m behind but finishing up last round ☺️). Not too bad for a December Sunday evening... 🎄🎅🏼💙

Great #LMPBC pick @BethM ! I loved Chuck Wendig's writing style. The plot was solid and fast paced, the main character was interesting and fairly likeable, and the ant scenes made you feel super creepy- crawly all over. A good #creaturefeature !
@Bklover @MaleficentBookDragon @Avanders

Avanders Definitely creepy crawly 🤭😁 🐜🐜🐜 {shudder} 4w

Thank you @BethM for such an amazing package!! I‘m super geeked to read the WI books & the undead home improvement book! (None of which I‘ve read... but FYI you can always check my goodreads — it should be public 😉). I‘m sooooo excited for the Christmas Door County coffees!! ♥️♥️♥️ And the Halloween bookmark is so adorable!! 😍😍 Thank you for a perfect happy package! 🥰🥰🥰

BethM Ahhh good reads! I never think of that! I had some of the mistletoe magic and really liked it- it‘s dark chocolate flavored! 1mo
Avanders @BethM mmmm sounds amazing. 🤤🤤🤤 I also always love the Door County coffees, so I‘m sure I‘ll love whatever it is... all the better for being Christmas flavored! 😍😄 1mo

1. Educated; Maybe You Should Talk to Someone; and the tagged book... I‘ll be looking for more Rollins at the library book sale today!! @Bklover @MaleficentBookDragon @BethM @TK421 #LMPBC #creaturefeature #groupv

2. The Rig by Roger Levy — found a used copy at my fave local bookstore!

3. Right now, 76 and cloudy (amazing, though cooler would be even better), with a high of 83. A welcome break from the 🥵


MaleficentBookDragon ♥♥♥♥♥ Rollins. Try this one. It's one of my favs. 3mo
Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon whew! That was quite a ride! I‘ll have to check that one out too! 😄👏🏽👏🏽 3mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Avanders I ♥ all his stand alone books so much. I do like the Sigma series but not as much. 3mo
Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon ooooh I see I got 2 from that series... that‘s a bummer. I like to start at the beginning... maybe I‘ll get it from the library to see if I want to keep the 2 I got 😁 I just *assumed* they were all standalones! 3mo

@MaleficentBookDragon I received your #LMPBC package yesterday! It's a hippoxtravaganza! I can't wait to read American Hippo! Thanks for the bookmark, toy hippo, zombie mints (not pictured), cow books, and I love the hippo drawing on the box! So is the drawing of the hippo very bad, or is it a drawing of a very bad hippo?
@MaleficentBookDragon @Avanders @Bklover @BethM @suvata
#LMPBC #creaturefeature

LibrarianRyan ahhhhhhh 4mo
Avanders 👏🏽👏🏽😍 4mo

I finally finished my #LMPBC selection the other day. I loved this book. It was written in a way that made they story very believable. I don't want to spoil any plot points for my group, so that's it. Read it, enjoy it, get anxiety from it.

Received!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
I‘m super geeked for this #creaturefeature from @BethM for our #LMPBC #groupw (right?). 🐜🐜🐜 And the traveling journal is so cool! 🐫🕶

Thank you also for the adorable notepad, bookmarks, and pencils, and the coffee that I have been coveting, stalking, and aching for 💔 since I first saw someone receive it on Litsy forever ago. Seriously, I‘ve googled it and amazon‘d it and now I have it!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️ Thank you!! 🥰😘

Bklover Yay! I think we‘re group V though, aren‘t we? 🤨 4mo
Bklover And that coffee looks AMAZING!!!! 4mo
Avanders @Bklover lol probably... I have a hard time remembering the letter part 😁 Re the ☕️... iknowright?! I‘m so excited to try it!! ♥️ 4mo
BethM I thought you‘d like it :) I sent some to @Mommamanzi last year. They only roast it in July/aug. you can get it online from Stone Creek Coffee, but only through them. 4mo
Avanders @BethM ooooooh well extra thank you for sending it to me!! ♥️♥️ I must have seen it on Nicole‘s page... 😁 4mo

Swamplandia! | Karen Russell
post image

Zafón is a literary genius. So simultaneously reading Labyrinth and Swamplandia! only highlighted how very poorly Russell stacks up. Also, this image depicts what is unfinishable about Swamplandia! when in the hands of someone who is, imho, incapable of handling it. #thankunext #ohhellno

So I release Swamplandia! back to the wild, and continue w Zafon. I also took up another Coyle installment & started Mount Misery today!

Read 1/2, then DNF.

Avanders #LMPBC @chrissyreadit @cobwebmoth @TK421 Nathan — I should be sending it back to you by the end of the week! Also tagging #LMPBC #groupv @maleficentbookdragon @bethm @tk421 (again 😁) @bklover #creaturefeature (edited) 6mo
Susanita I tried to read it three times and finally decided it wasn‘t for me. 6mo
BlameJennyJane That cover though for Swamplandia! 😍 It is odd but I love it. I almost got the book with a far less appealing cover (a gator on it, perhaps) but check the reviews on here and ultimately opted for something else. 6mo

Chrissyreadit It was a very unpleasant book. 6mo
cobwebmoth I reached a point where I was hate reading it, so I had to bail. I don't have the emotional energy for some books. 6mo
Avanders @Susanita There are people who really enjoyed the book... i think it‘s just fine to not be in that group 😆 @BlameJennyJane it‘s a great visual/cover, I agree... and it‘s high-concept and maybe could have been good in someone else‘s hands.. 🤷🏽‍♀️ @chrissyreadit And way to go, finishing it!! 👏🏽👏🏽 @cobwebmoth right. I think that‘s the perfect time to bail on a book... when you‘re hating reading it! 👿🤢👋🏽 6mo
Chrissyreadit @Avanders I had to finish- I hate feeling anxious about a character. 6mo
Avanders @Chrissyreadit ohh yeah, I can see that. 😔 Well, I don‘t know if I‘m on a roll or if the books are, but I am skewering my current read.... It‘s one of the worst books I‘ve ever read... maybe it‘s just me 🤷🏽‍♀️😆 6mo
Chrissyreadit @Avanders what is it? 6mo
Chrissyreadit @Avanders just saw this response! I am not getting notifications for some comments. So odd. 6mo
Avanders @Chrissyreadit same issue! @MaleficentBookDragon tagged me a few days ago and I never got notification! Boooo 6mo
Chrissyreadit Double boo. 6mo
