First book finished for #Roll100

This one was okay. Almost a pan. I got super bored about halfway through. I ended up skimming the ending. I think I just need to take a break from romances. Or maybe it was just this one. All the sexy bits happen off screen. I liked the hiking and camping scenes. That was fun and a different setting for a romance for me.

#JoyousJanuary - Book 2 finished

PuddleJumper That sucks! It's a book off your list at least 22h
Cinfhen It looks like it could be fun, but I‘m fickle about romance reads too!! 22h

3✨ I didn‘t get into this Newbery Award Winner as I hoped I would. About a young man who lost a lot trying to fight the Roman‘s who took it all from him. He has a lot of hate in his heart as he try‘s to follow the cause to a vow he made to serve the Lord. He meets Jesus and his disciples through his journey. Jesus provides him wisdom that he needs to think about. This is one of my #roll100

PuddleJumper Wahoo! 23h

5 marriages of well known Victorian writers/intellectuals: Jane Welsh and Thomas Carlyle, Effie Gray and John Ruskin, Harriet Taylor and John Stuart Mill, Catherine Hogarth and Charles Dickens, and George Eliot and George Henry Lewes. I was only familiar with Dickens. Fascinating stuff. Rose looks at how these unions affected careers and legacies and how they were seen in that era compared to our current perceptions of marriage. My 1st #Roll100

KathyWheeler When I got my MA in English 1000 years ago, my concentration was in Victorian Lit, and my thesis included both Carlyle and Dickens. Can‘t wait to check this out! 1d
Ruthiella @KathyWheeler Oh! I think you will like it then. 😃 1d

PuddleJumper Sounds really interesting! 23h
Ruthiella @Cathythoughts Thanks Cathy! 😊 20h
Ruthiella @Sophronisba Totally. While perhaps unconventional by modern standards, their partnership was also quite successful in its way. 🤔 20h
Ruthiella @PuddleJumper It was! 😃 20h
LeahBergen This book was cited in a book I just finished and found fascinating 17h
Ruthiella @LeahBergen Interesting coincidence! 😃 16h

Stealing my own photo for this review…

What a wild ride…a stretch of over 60 arsons in a small Eastern Shore town…a love story…volunteer fire fighters tirelessly out there night after night.

Glad to have read this for my first #Roll100 pick - definitely off to a great start. 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Crazeedi Good read! 2d
PuddleJumper Yay! 23h

I'm always reading many books at once, but here are the 3 I'm most actively reading this weekend! One manga, one audiobook, and one ebook. Each of these are part of my #JoyousJanuary goals (I need to revise my Heart Break Bakery goal because I reached it before the challenge started). The Red Scrolls of Magic is also one of my #Roll100 picks.

Another series by the awesome Seanan McGuire that doesn't let down. Quite different than Wayward Children series which I love but still a great read: a blend of mystery and fantasy, non-stop action that doesn't let down, great world and character building. A pick!

@PuddleJumper: this is January #49 #Roll100 pick on my list.
@TheAromaOfBooks: I was able to advance in the #PromptMaze with this read.
Thank you both for awesome challenges!

PuddleJumper Oh, that does sound fun! Glad you enjoyed it 5d
claudiuo @PuddleJumper Thanks for this challenge, it makes me try to read more! 5d
TheAromaofBooks Yes!!! I've advanced three spaces and and have been stuck for there for the last couple of books. I don't know what I was thinking with some of these prompts 😂 4d

claudiuo @TheAromaofBooks I only moved 2 squares but I enjoy every move. It's such an original idea, I love it! 4d
ozma.of.oz I love this series! ❤️ 4d
claudiuo @ozma.of.oz I'm getting the second book soon but I'm also curious about the InCryptid series, so I think I'll make a detour first. 😊 4d
TheAromaofBooks I'm going to see how it goes. I may come up with a second one for the second half of the year. Or I may still be stuck on square 3 by then 😂 4d
ozma.of.oz Yay! I also love the Incryptid books! I hope you enjoy them! 4d
claudiuo @TheAromaofBooks What? I just finished the maze! I thought there is something wrong and last square sent me to I5 cause there is no I5; except there is and it is the ending 😁 It seems I was very lucky and the selections I made took me there in 3 steps: A2 -> A5 -> F5 -> I5.
I will retrace my steps, read another book for an already done cell and go in a different direction!
Thanks a lot for the fun!
TheAromaofBooks Nice!!! That is awesome!! I wasn't sure how many steps there are... the only “planning“ I did was to try and make sure there were same number chances to get sent to each cell (so I think I ended up with 3 as the magic number - of course - so three different cells send you to A2; 3 cells send you to A3; etc). That's awesome that you found the finish!!! 4d
claudiuo @TheAromaofBooks I love the fact that you provided for more than one possibility in each cell, it makes for more fun. Now that I finished by starting with a nonfiction in A2, I will start all over with either a Fairytale retelling or a Romance and see where that gets me. I really love it! Thank you so much! 3d
