A silly #debut novel, firmly in the #chicklit category. Holly Banks and her family have relocated to the village of Primm, and it's time for daughter Ella to start Kindergarten. Holly is annoying, her husband is a nervous wreck, her mother is an irresponsible addict, and the PTA president is just downright unbelievably over-the-top and mean. I'd only recommend to those who love this genre. #notforme #millenialauthor (maybe) #Booked2020

Cinfhen Sorry it didn‘t work for you!! But at least you checked off the prompt 😉 1w
cherinium @Cinfhen Well, as the saying goes, all books are not for all people. This book was a selection from #onceuponabookclub. I love the concept of the box, and have adored several of the enclosed gifts; but the book selections have mostly been books I would never read of my own accord. With that said, some of them were great, and I'm glad I had them put into my hands. 1w
Cinfhen That‘s the downside to a subscription service that chooses the books but at least you‘re enjoying the experience and extra swag!!! 1w

Ready to start reading my latest selection from #onceuponabookclub. It will also be my last for a while, as I need to curb my spending for a while. Does anyone know if Julie Valerie is a #millenialauthor ? I can't find anything about her age on the web. I'd like to use this for #Booked2020 if possible. @4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage

Cinfhen I‘m finding it really difficult to find the ages of most authors too!! 2w
cherinium @Cinfhen Glad I'm not the only one. This author seems to be in the right stage of life based on her bio info that is available, but who knows? 2w
Cinfhen Good enough!! Just read it and mark it 🤫🤭 2w

Getting a late start to stating and getting started on my #readinggoals. This beautiful journal I received in one of my #onceuponabookclub boxes will serve to keep me organized as I work on several challenges this year. Ultimately, I aim to fulfill as many prompts as possible with books I already own. I need some sort of motivation to plow through my #TBR, and my #bookbudget needs to be trimmed. 📚💰 2020 challenges listed in comments.

Cinfhen I agree; using your TBR for challenges is another sort of challenge 😉🤪🎊 3w
BarbaraBB Clever to use your TBR for the challenges. I try too as well but always fail 😂 3w
Crazeedi Great goals, I'm going to try to whittle down my tbr shelves this year, one of my goals is to downsize all the "stuff" in my house 3w

Mildly entertaining, but not a book that will stick with me. The best part of this reading experience was opening the gifts included from #onceuponabookclub.

I enjoy opportunities to read books that are out of my wheelhouse. Just past the 50 page mark, I'm concerned this one may be a bit too sappy for me. It seems like a quick read, though, so I'm going to see it through. Also, I still have gifts to unwrap as I continue through the story! #onceuponabookclub #booksubscription

A kitten recuperating from pelvic limb injuries makes the perfect reading companion. Gimli is figuring out how we do things around here. 💕 #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #adventuresofthegmen #lapwarmer #readingpartner #onceuponabookclub

Starting something new today. My lack of motivation to do anything will probably keep me firmly planted in this spot for a while. #lazyday #lazysunday #currentlyreading #onceuponabookclub @Onceuponabookclub

Pickpick

The historical aspect of pigeons being used by the Brits during WWII was quite interesting to read about. From that perspective, I really enjoyed this work of #historicalfiction. What I didn't enjoy was the sappy, predictable #instalove story that served as the framework for the novel. Overall a pick, as the book is well-written and a quick, easy read. #WWII #romance #birds #pigeons #secretmission #onceuponabookclub
