Although, really, what am I doing with all these books when I retire?

Aubrey‘s a baker, who has a 1-night stand w/ Landon, who she didn‘t know is a famously hot food critic. He feels guilty about a bad review he gave her, so he produces a cooking show for her. Their feelings for each other increase in their forced proximity.

This one wasn‘t great. It was kind of boring. There were a couple cute & funny moments. I liked the diversity in the characters, but not really the characters themselves or the plot.

Kiss Her Once for Me | Alison Cochrun

This was a cute #ownvoices queer romance that worked perfectly for the season, even being at the tail end. My library hold must have hit at the perfect time because for some reason I wasn't feeling the Christmas-ish romance vibe around actual Christmas. But I digress, I love a good flawed character, and while I wasn't nearly as obsessed as I was with Delilah Green, I still found myself rooting for everyone. Would have been a solid #botm pick!

swishandflick PS: my only critique here is that they kinda glossed over that whole "wife" thing that got Ellie in her feelings the first go round. Am I the only one that felt like I was being gaslit into thinking she was "supposed" to take the whole hit for that misunderstanding? ? 1mo
Jadams1776 I agree - the wife thing was a weird. 1mo

It's almost the end of the year so gotta get through as many books as I can that involve challenges. This is for the "M" slot and so far I'm enjoying it. There's a lot of drama but also many hurt kids that just don't know how to communicate, hopefully they get through it without hurting each other too much #amreading

This gentle, moving picture book is about the circle of life and the importance of community connections, as seen through the eyes of a Hmong American child. Gorgeous illustrations full of rich textures are by Korean artist Seo Kim. #ownvoices #kidlit

Second book in the Arden St Ives series.

I'm listening to book 3 right now. I can't stop. That's all I can say about this LGBTQ+ romance trilogy.

Prairiegirl_reading I‘m curious about these ones. Are they really open door? 2mo
julesG @Prairiegirl_reading Wide open. Not like a barn door, but there is explicit content. 2mo
Andrew65 Well done 🎄🎄🎄 2mo

CarolynM ❤️❤️❤️ Now you know why my wait for the third was torturous! (edited) 2mo
julesG @CarolynM Yes indeed. Though I'm halfway through book 3 and there hasn't been a lot of Arden+Caspian so far. 2mo
CarolynM But at least you know Arden is alright. I was stuck in limbo wondering where his broken heart would take him🥺😢 2mo
julesG @CarolynM That's right. Still feels as if this was meant to be two books. 2mo
julesG Also, I loved what Bellerose said about knitting shawls. It's exactly what I like about shawl-knitting. 2mo
CarolynM Bellerose is great. I want a whole book about him. And then one about Ellery. 2mo
julesG @CarolynM we need to start a petition 2mo
