A few weeks ago I went to visit my parents in Florida. While there I got to speaking with Beverly, a friend of my mom, who also enjoys reading. She told me Paula McLain is one of her favorite authors & she particularly liked Circling The Sun. And today a copy arrived from Beverly!! #SurpriseBookMail ❤️What a sweet and lovely gesture!!!! Totally brightened my day 😊🌞🌻

MellieAntoinette Loved this book! 3mo

Mollyanna What a wonderful lady! How thoughtful of Beverly. I‘ll have to check out the book. 3mo
squirrelbrain What a lovely thought! ❤️ 3mo
Bklover Hi there! I‘ve been off the grid for a while and am just catching up with everyone. How‘s your husband feeling?? Sounds like you‘ve been through a scary time. Send you a very late but heartfelt hug!! 💕💕💕💕 3mo
TrishB Really enjoyed this one 👍🏻 3mo
Hooked_on_books This one wasn‘t what I expected, but I enjoyed it. 3mo
Megabooks How nice! I have this from BOTM but haven‘t read it. 3mo
Cinfhen Maybe we can buddy read @Megabooks since GOLD FAME CITRUS was a bust and you didn‘t love Monkey God as much as I did!!!! 3mo
Cinfhen Hi @Bklover I‘m hanging in there!! Hubby went from maybe I‘m getting a sinus infection to a full blown flesh eating virus 🥵it was/is literally insane and a nightmare. He‘s improving but it‘s slow going and I‘m mentally and physically exhausted. Thanks for the hugs ~ MUCH APPRECIATED 😘😘 3mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen That would be fun! I think part of the reason I didn‘t like Monkey God was that I did it as an audiobook. Definitely the wrong format!! For the buddy read maybe sometime in July or August?? 3mo
Cinfhen I‘m thinking September @Megabooks because I‘m meant to travel much of July & August and I‘d rather not bring extra book weight with me😉 3mo
Megabooks And dear, I‘m so sorry about the hubs!! How terrible!!! I will pray that his healing is as quick and uneventful as possible! 🤗🤗🤗 3mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen Good with me!! I hope your husband is healthy to travel if he‘s coming! 💙💙 Enjoy your trips 😁✈️ 3mo
Cinfhen Well we‘ve canceled our trip to Amsterdam on Monday @Megabooks 😣and hoping but not certain we‘ll be able to go to Sweden July 7😫 praying he can travel to states July 15!!! 🙏🏻we have smaller trips planned once we get to US so we will see 🤞🏼🤞🏼 3mo
Cinfhen And airlines and hotels are ASSHOLES!!! Im literally fighting with them about receiving a credit not even a refund!!! @Megabooks 🤬🤬🤬 3mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen Definitely 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 and 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 for you!! 3mo
Cinfhen Thank you @Megabooks 😘😘😘 Hows Mom & dad feeling???? (edited) 3mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I think mom and I are wearing dad out! Mom is doing better and in less pain. She‘s been getting out with friends, which is great but is still having trouble driving. I‘ve been depending on dad to go to some out of town doctor‘s appointments. So he‘s a shuttle service!! Overall we‘re pretty good though. Hopefully they‘ll figure out my mystery vomiting at my endoscopy Monday! 3mo
Cinfhen Oh God! Take care of yourself, Meg @Megabooks 3mo
Bklover Good grief! This sounds terrifying! And I‘m so sorry this messes with all your travel plans. I‘m sure you‘re taking wonderful care of him- make sure to take care of you too! 😘😘 3mo
Cinfhen It‘s been hell @Bklover but today, Thank G-D has been a good day 💜 3mo
Reviewsbylola Fantastic book! 3mo

Woohoo 🎉🎉🎉More #SurpriseBookMail from the awesome @LibrarianRyan It‘s the #giveaway that KEEPS on giving 💝💝💝 This is another book that Ryan selected for me.... I hope I‘m not the one to ruin its 100% rating on Litsy 😜My daughter watched Buffy so maybe she‘ll enjoy this book. I‘m going to give it a try... you never know🤷‍♀️Thanks so MUCH for your extreme generosity @LibrarianRyan #LittensAreTheBest

LibrarianRyan You are welcome. I promise all the rest are your picks. I‘m looking forward to this but also not looking forward to it. Big Buffy fan. 7mo
Cinfhen The feedback seems overwhelming positive @LibrarianRyan 7mo
LibrarianRyan @Cinfhen I purposely haven‘t looked. I do know I was one of the few people who didn‘t care for Dark Descent if Elizabeth Frankenstein which was the authors last book. 7mo

Surprise book mail from my mom at work today!!! I mentioned that I wanted to borrow it and she ended up just buying me my own copy. Not sure if that means she hates to share or what lol #surprisebookmail #ilovemymom #sharingiscaring #ornot

DGRachel That‘s awesome (and that also sounds like something I would do...you want to borrow my book? Here, have your own copy! 😂) 8mo
