post image

“A gripping novel set during Mussolini‘s 1935 invasion of Ethiopia, The shadow King takes us back to the first real conflict of World War II, casting light in the women soldiers who were left out of the historical records.”

I have hungry eyes staring me down. He wants me to stop reading so I can feed him...

I was apparently on page 92 when I first started reading this...I have to start back at page 1 because it‘s been so long and I don‘t remember what I read. 😔 🤷🏽‍♀️ That‘s what happens when you read too many books at once.

It's hot outside. Unfortunately, it's very warm inside too. Where does Madame #GhostCat decide to sleep? I've already placed her onto the sofa next to me twice. She glares at me and climbs back onto my lap. 😼

This ARC is funny. I'm reviewing it for BookSirens.


jenniferw88 At least your cat sits on you! My #gingerbrat doesn't! 6mo
julesG @jenniferw88 Only Ghost sits, sleeps, pukes on me. #ShadowCat might touch me with one paw that's close enough for him 6mo

Loved it! I‘m excited but nervous to find out what happens next. What‘s going to happen to Dojo? Kasahara? Tezuka? Shibasahki? The rest of the crew? 😔 😢 #FinalVolume

I spent most of my day reading with #TwinkyToles. We enjoyed the book...well, i did. Twinky couldn‘t care less, he was just enjoying the warmth and waiting for food.

I now want to know what happened to Ivan and Prue. 😔

This book is seriously boring me. But apparently not Otis the #gingerbrat #catsoflitsy

JeannieReads Same! I read it for book club, and thought it was so boring, predictable, and formulaic that I struggled to get through it. There are some pretty crazy articles out there on the author, though. Those are a fun read. 7mo

Grimscythe @JeannieReads Right?! I keep falling asleep and losing interest. 7mo

MallenNC Great picture of Otis though! 7mo
kay89 Definitely recommend reading the New Yorker article about this author if you haven‘t gotten to it yet. The author is like a Highsmith character! 7mo
rachaich I skim read chunks. Book club choice 🙄😂 7mo

Thanks @wanderinglynn for creating the #BFC! I struggle to stay active during the weekends, because I just want to relax and be lazy after a trying week at work. I didn‘t do so well on Friday either. My goals are to reach 85,000/week and 1 book/week. The goal is to reach 14,000steps/day m-f and 7,500 steps/day Saturday and Sunday. I have some catching up to do tomorrow.

AprilMae Weekends can be hard, we work hard all week so we wanna relax! I think the #bfc is a great way to get us moving and grooving!! You got this! 7mo
UwannaPublishme You can do it! 😊💪🏻 7mo
