The so so is more my fault in that I didn‘t read the description first. It‘s not terrible but it is rich people doing awful things to each other and a very toxic relationship. As in I hope young people don‘t read this thinking this is something to seek out. Indulgent and ridiculous at times, it still is like something you can‘t look away from. I got the second book with the first book so I might see where it goes. #bookspinbingo

KateReadsYA I've been wanting to read this... haha guilty. 😄 2h

One of those rare times where I actually wanted more from the story. It was an interesting take on sirens. It took me a bit to get into but then I didn‘t want to put it down! #bookspinbingo

Looks like I‘m on #TeamGameSleighers for #WinterGames2021 and I‘ve been piling up books for the month. I have an ambitious TBR for the month. Some will be my #bookspinbingo but I may make a second holiday bingo board. I have a few of my own and have many on hold from the library! I hope this is good motivation for my reading!
The left is my holiday that got cut off but they‘re there!

Her books aren‘t hard to read but this one is pretty thick. I know there‘s more than three books in this series but this felt like the second book in a trilogy, things are leading up to something but we have to get there. Does end where you want the next book. #bookspinbingo

Great art and follows the book pretty well. Truly sad this is the last one but does end in a good place. I liked this manga series and felt it followed the books pretty well! #bookspinbingo

Last year I got holiday cards after Christmas and I have started to fill out a few for #LitsyLove I‘m glad there was a clean out of the list lol! I would like to send one to everyone if that‘s possible and if people want them. (If not it‘s fine just let me know) I did try to avoid “Merry Christmas” cards but there are a few so I hope no one is upset if they get one and don‘t celebrate it. I wanted to get a head start since last year I did not lol!

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Awesome!! I‘m working on mine too!! 🥰 3w

KateReadsYA I'll be sending you a card, definitely gotta go grab some holiday cards here soon so I'm not behind on mailing. 3w
TheAromaofBooks I think this time of year it's important to embrace the spirit behind what someone sends/gifts you - I don't mind getting cards that express greetings for holidays that I don't celebrate, because that day is important to the person who sent it & they wanted to share the joy & goodwill behind that with me. I don't take it as “YOU have to celebrate because I do“ but rather “I celebrate this & am sharing that happiness with you as well“! 3w
Ash.on.the.line @Librarybelle when they pile up they really pile up! 😅 3w

So I have signed up for #WinterGames2021 I have loved the idea and seeing peoples posts but the points and teams always made me nervous 😅 still I‘ve been so meh about reading and just in general that I want some holiday cheer to end the year with! I want to spend the weekend doing some bullet journal pages. Here‘s hoping I can keep up!

Nelnjali This year's #Scarathlon was my first event here on Litsy. I watched people doing it and #WinterGames last year and thought it looked like fun but overwhelming. Halloween and Christmas are my favorite times of the year, but as I've gotten older, it has gotten harder get myself into the spirit. My experience with Scarathlon has been awesome! I've made time for spooky things and it has been more easygoing than I thought it would be. 1mo
Ash.on.the.line @Nelnjali that‘s good to hear and That‘s what I was hoping would happen for me! 😄 I want to get more into it this year! 1mo
Clwojick Thanks for sharing, and I‘m so happy you decided to give it a try! The main goal is always just to read. All the extra activities and games are just for added fun, so feel free to participate as much or as little as you want! ❤️ 1mo

I like CLo and this one was good. What happens when the guy who created love matches based on DNA finds his perfect match with a skeptic? It was fun and though there is a kid (which normally I don‘t love, bc they are usually unrealistic) but she wasn‘t too bad. A good read #bookspinbingo

The story itself was alright and love gay men in historicals. My biggest issue was I just didn‘t like Monty the main character. He was so annoying to me I almost didn‘t want to finish it. Still I pushed through and it was okay for me though I‘m sure others will enjoy more. #bookspinbingo

I liked this one. All the silly things that feel unrealistic work together to jus be a feel good book. Reliable Ruthie working at a retirement village and the new owners son Teddy who is a bit of a mess and stays next door to Ruthie to work there for some cash. Opposites and lots of great humor with retirees who need an assistant, and yes there are turtles! Not as steamy as her previous books if that‘s what you‘re looking for.

I realized I don‘t think I‘ve shared a photo but I did get a dog. My brother could no longer take care of her and so here she is! Her name is Socks (pretty sure it was Sox for a team but oh well!) she‘s so gentle and very sweet. Her and the cats don‘t interact which is probably for the best. (My last dog tormented the cats)
It‘s been fun going for walks listening to audiobooks and podcasts!

#netgalley #arc continuation from book 1&2 about the Dread Penny society. A group who writes them & solves crime on the side. I love these because we get the main story with the overarcing mystery & 2 other mini mysteries written by members. We have Brogan who investigates Veras father by working at their shop. Light on the romance but lots of intrigue with a satisfying ending but I expect another installment after this for the whole storyline.
