In Praise of Retreat: Finding Sanctuary in the Modern World 📚 By Kirsteen MacLeod 📚 Currently reading! It is fascinating to read this book after a year of retreat due to the pandemic. But the book refers to a more deliberate retreat, one that nourishes the soul. Just started the audiobook and looking forward to delving into it! #booksbrewsandbooze #inpraiseofretreat #findingsanctuaryinthemodernworld #kirsteenmacleod #netgalley #netgalleyreads

Mavey Wow! Stacked! 9mo

The first time I tried this, I found it unbearably slow. A couple months later - couldn't stop listening.
Sometimes it's all in the format.

Great series starter with secret witches, demonic bargains and the Seven Deadly Sins incarnate. It's not necessarily culturally accurate but I can look past that.

Read4life Good to know this was your experience. I bailed on this for the same reason. I will now give it another shot in the future. 12mo
FantasyChick @Read4life Hopefully you enjoy it! I'm not going to say that it doesn't have pacing issues, but I found it much easier to handle with the audio. 12mo

Nothing makes my day like a new Barker book 😁

Screw the TBR, Barker always makes it to the top of the list!

Reading instead of doing the things I should be doing. I was working on Descendant of the Crane but I'm not feeling so I switched to this last night and had a hard time putting it down. So impressed with this so far. It's a quick read so I think I will just chill and finish today 😊

Before and Again | Barbara Delinsky

This started a bit slow for me, but in the end it was a really moving story that kept me engaged. I love that Delinksy‘s characters are believable and no different than the average person. That‘s what makes their plight, reactions, and experiences so realistic and relatable.

Liked the mystery of this book and how it kept me guessing. Yet, something felt off to me about the development and the way the author left things at the very end was terribly disappointing.

Told through snippets of past memories and current events, The High Tide Club, is an entertaining and engaging piece of modern women‘s mystery fiction. I was pleasantly surprised by the direction this storyline took. Each character was well crafted, flaws and all, and that made them come to life as their stories were weaved together like an old, handmade quilt.

Don‘t waste your time. 👎

I did not care for this book at all. Truthfully, I wasn‘t a fan of the first book either; however, I stuck with it because of the illustrations. The story itself was just passable, in my honest opinion. Then, like a glutton for a punishment, I decided to pick up his second installment to see what happened. If anything, I think it got worse. Sorry to say, the art is still the best thing this series has going for it.

Sace I hate to hear that. The illustrations are darling. 4y
monkeygirlsmama @RestlessFickleBookHoarder They really are, and that‘s what first lured me in to book one. The illustrations were so good; I just wished the story development had lived up to the artwork. 4y
