Well. So far this is my least favorite. I have trouble enough keeping track of all of the characters without all the new ones added in this book. I‘m really looking forward to the next book, where all my favorites come back! Still a pick though- I did enjoy it overall. Izzy says hi!

#TLT #THREELISTTHURSDAY

Well, I was in my 20‘s in the 80‘s and appears all I did was watch movies! (Had a couple kids too). I‘ve seen 95 of the movies. Back then it was the height of the video stores era. Anyway, favorites include-
1. ET (I believe ET was the first low priced vhs tape. It kind of changed everything. After that you could actually own the movies!)
2. Poltergeist. Scared the crap out of me.
3. Terms of Endearment 😭😭😭

SpellboundReader 95 movies! Wow!!! 2w

Oh my goodness!!! What a beautiful package- thank you so much Misty! I feel so undeserving, but I love it nonetheless. I‘ve wanted to read this for the longest time.

Thank you for all the goodies, as well as your patience with me, my friend. 🩷

This book is different from my usual. It‘s about a hospice nurse, and each chapter is about a different patient who she has helped as they are dying. She talks a lot about the things that happen during this time, such as dead family members appearing to the dying patient. It‘s a fascinating look at a difficult job. Being there for the family, making sure there‘s no pain, and being a source of info and comfort for family. ⭐️⭐️ ⭐️⭐️

Bklover Btw, this is not a religious book. 2mo

Expiration Dates | Rebecca Serle

Pickpick

If this were the first Rebecca Serle book I‘d read I‘d say it was wonderful. I love the magical realism in her books, and this is a good one to pull you out of a slump. However I read One Italian Summer first and I loved it so much that this book paled a bit in comparison. While I would read them both again, if you haven‘t read any of her books I adored One Italian Summer.

dabbe I loved teaching CATCHER, and it was a fave when I was in high school. @jewright ... I tried to tell the kids (who usually thought Holden was whiny) to see how fragile he is and that he hates that the world has moved on whereas he hasn't because he can't get over the loss of Allie. That's a reason he lashes out at everything and everybody. My humble opinion of course. 😍 3mo

This is the third book in this series, and the last one available at the library, so I‘m going to have to stop here for a while. It‘s been so many years since I read this series that it‘s like new! I had forgotten that it starts off in the year 2058, so that adds a fun twist as well. The three I‘ve read have helped me enormously this month, as I‘ve had a hard time concentrating the last couple weeks. Great series, which I‘ll definitely continue.

I saw that a group here was reading this series. I read these, maybe the first 15 or so, years ago, back in the 90‘s and loved them. Thought I‘d reread the first one so I listened to this today. I love a mystery series, and this one is wonderful - takes place in the future and has a bit of romance as well as a great mystery. I may have to continue this series!

I love Christmas mysteries. I saw this on hoopla last night and listened to it today. (It‘s only 260 pages). If you‘re looking for a good Christmas thriller this is it. It‘s really a mystery/thriller that takes place in the five days before Christmas. A tragedy from the past is stirred up when a true crime podcaster takes a look at a crime that occurred ten years ago. I loved it!!

This was my first Barbara Pym book, and I must say I enjoyed it. If you asked me what it was about, however, I‘d have to say it‘s not about much of anything. It is the story of Wilmet, a married woman in the 50‘s who has become bored with her husband and with her very undemanding life. We see her daily life unfold (I‘d be bored too) and her search for her own “glass of blessings”. Looking forward to more Pym treasures.

Well, this was interesting. I didn‘t really relate to the characters, but enjoyed the story. I know this was set in the 90‘s, but the way the women were treated seemed more 60‘s to me. Very gory, which I find oddly fascinating. Will probably read more of Grady Hendrix.
