#BedtimeReading! I‘m starting this one tonight! #LMPBC

Mehso-so

I finished this one over my lunch break today. It was alright - not what I expected at all. I‘m not into history much so it was a bit dry in places to me which means it took me awhile to read it. I think that others may enjoy it more though. Which is a good thing because this is my #LMPBC book for this round. How‘s that for a recommendation? Would y‘all rather I chose a different book and sent it out instead? @babyruth2510 @cwarnier @Kangaj1

babyruth2510 I‘m okay with either option 3d
Kangaj1 Same...up to you if you want to read something else 3d
cwarnier I am fine either way as well.
2d
BookishBelle Okay. Thanks y‘all! I‘ll just send it on then to keep us on track. @babyruth2510 @Kangaj1 @cwarnier 2d

1. Jessica Fletcher from Murder She Wrote. I think she‘d have lots of great stories, would let me read when I wanted to, and maybe we‘d solve a murder whilst stuck in the house!
2. Get some exercise, if you feel up to it and then eat the extra calories you burn in comfort food.
3. Really any murder mystery will do. Cozies welcome and appreciated as well.

#SundayFunday @ozma.of.oz I hope y‘all are doing alright in quarantine! Hang in there!

ozma.of.oz Thank you for the well wishes! Murder mysteries definitely provide good distractions! 😂 Thanks for posting! 4d

Finished this over my lunch break today. #LunchtimeReading It‘s another good installment in the Dresden Files #Series. This is a #reread for me. I started this series years ago and am just now picking it back up so I am rereading from the beginning.

I finished this #audiobook on my way home from work yesterday. #audiocommute For those who have read these (I feel like the only one…), you‘ll recognize the mc‘s favorite sweet treat in the picture. She‘s always going through Penny‘s supermarket line for these cookies and any juicy tidbits of information she can get from Penny, Sherman, Wyoming‘s chattiest store clerk, to help solve a murder. This was another great installment in the #series !

I finished this over lunch today. Such a good story! Isobel is a young, mortal portrait artist whose patronage includes many of the fair folk, magical beings who on occasion visit her hometown, Whimsy. A new patron, the Autumn Prince, brings with him a dangerous adventure and maybe even romance.

This book was fantastic! The world building , the characters, all of it was great! My only qualm was that it seemed the mcs couldn‘t catch a break at times. I realized after I picked this as my #lmpbc read for this round, that the copy I had was one I had gotten at Shakespeare and Company when I was in Paris so I bought another copy to write in and send out. I‘ll get it in the mail soon! @ozma.of.oz @Endowarrior21 @kellyann28

1. Tagged prequel to the Anna Pigeon series. All #mysteries set in national parks!

2. All of them. Lol Top of the list: Yellowstone, Denali, Dry Tortugas, and Congaree. We went to Hot Springs and Mammoth Cave earlier this year and our plan b honeymoon last year was a tour of national parks out west.

3. Ranger Confidential by Andrea Langford sounds good! Added to my Amazon wishlist!

BookishBelle For those who are interested (haha), for our plan b honeymoon we went to Zion, Arches, Bryce Canyon, Mesa Verde, Grand Canyon, and Death Valley. We also went to Red Rocks national land conservation area, Hoover Dam, and drove on a bit of Route 66. It was great! 4mo

This ya fantasy was a soft pick for me. It seemed a little too predictable in places. Sometimes the characters did things that seemed out of character for them which made me feel like it was done just to move the plot along. But I did enjoy it. It kept my attention, kept me turning pages, and the world building was very good. I‘ll definitely be reading the next one!

I had a lot of time to read today which doesn‘t happen often. So I finished this #LMPBC pick. It was so good! I didn‘t love the MC but I don‘t think you‘re supposed to. She‘s a recovering alcoholic who moves around and searches for missing persons. She definitely has an addict-type personality. It was very well done and I didn‘t figure it out before they told us what was up. Kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat until the end!

Kitty was not super happy about having her picture taken this morning. I was super happy to have read this book though! It was very well written and plotted out. My only qualm was that the story wasn‘t in chronological order. I kept having to look back and figure out if this happened before that which pulled me out of the story some. Otherwise though, really really good.

I enjoyed the atmosphere - very winter- and that the protagonist is an elderly lady who was also quite interesting; however, I ended up skimming sections and figured out #whodunit before it was revealed. It was between a so-so and a pick for me.

She is working off the rest of her contract with the network in nowhere Wyoming when a missing person case peaks her interest.
