Thank you so much @teebe I received your letter and parcel last week but have only just had the time to take the picture! Been dog sitting and rushing about like a mad woman all week 😏 Thank you so much again and I will be posting out to you next week as I have some goodie shopping to do!! 😊

teebe I sent a letter but the parcel isn't from me. 2y
Bookish_Predator Omg! You're right, it's from @quirkyreader !! I knew I should've had a nap earlier!! I got your letter @teebe and will be sending mine back to you in the week, going to my brothers girlfriends house for a couple of days. I feel really stupid now 😞 2y
teebe @Bookish_Predator no worries! ☺️ I look forward to your letter! 2y

Im 14% through this and am loving him more than I did before, I've seen him in a few things and have been drawn to him and never knew why, I think I'm finally understanding why. I will be doing a review when I've finished devouring this book, it will go way before all the other books I need to review, the ones I've read and put off reviewing but this is something I'm savouring, it's just that good. ❤️❤️❤️

Started reading this earlier and am really enjoying it so far, more than I thought I would actually but decided to put it down to watch season 8 of Archer (I'm so much in love with that show!!) and thought I'd watch Freddy vs Jason just because it's funny! Will get back to the book tomorrow after I've watched some ridiculous movie deaths 💀

I'm just over halfway through this and I bloody love it!! If you're a fan of The Hatching and Skitter by Ezekiel Boone then I think you'll enjoy this one too. Huge, huge 🕷🕷🕷🕷stalking and attacking people in the Amazon. Such a good read so far 😁

Have a couple of days off from dog sitting now, I love the crazy little noodle (pictured here watching the football with me the other day) but boy is she a handful!!

This weekend I've managed to read Be My Killer (loved it!), The Human Wilderness (book one in a trilogy) and I'm currently reading Skitter (all the spidery goodness and shenanigans!!) the other picture is obviously because you can never have enough spiders 🕷🕷🕷☺️

BekahB I haven't heard of Be My Killer or The Human Wilderness. I just added them to my Goodreads TBR! 3y
Bookish_Predator @BekahB they're both available on @netgalley if you're on there, I think The Human Wilderness is a read now one but Be My Killer is a request one 😊 3y

I've been wanting to read this for such a long time so when I saw it on my kindle for Qa.39 I knew I had to get it! Only on chapter 5 but I'm loving it already and will have to try and stop myself from buying the 2nd and 3rd! ? ❤️❤️

Laura317 It's such a fun book! I need to read the next one. 3y
Bookish_Predator @Laura317 it seems fun so far but every time I try and read it I have either my brothers dog attacking me or my nephew asking questions about random subjects 😏 need to get home quickly to read it all! I hope you manage to get to the next one very soon 😊 3y

Took me a while but I've finally started this book. So, so good so far, I'm about 27% in and I cannot put it down! It's also 3.38am here and I know I need to get some sleep but there's more book calling to me and some creepy ass shit going down that I need to read. Sleep or read, which one will it be!? 🤔

Finished this today, I've written 8 pages of notes for a review and all I can say is that it's such a good story! I've enjoyed this so much more than I thought I would and it's taken me out of the long, ridiculous slump that I've been in recently. I now want to read rather than watch random stuff on Sky. I'm pumped to get through the 96 books I need to read by the end of this year! I doubt I'll do it but I'm going to give it a shot!

#booknerdproblems I really, really need to be supervised when on #netgalley as I can't help myself when it comes to requesting more and more books and now my anxiety is getting worse because I know I won't be able to finish the 80+ that need to be read and reviewed this year 😞 they're all so pretty though so I'm using that as an excuse 😏

I flippin love this book!! It gets 5 sparkly ghosts 👻👻👻👻👻 from me. Jack Sparks is an unlikeable guy, there's something about him that makes me want to hug him though but also makes me want to punch him in his cocky and smug little face!! Such a good story that I urge everyone to read. Is gruesome in parts but has really good humour sprinkled throughout. I'll say again that I LOVE this book @JasonArnopp !!

Day 17 #somethingforsept is #womenwriters these are the ones I could find, I really need to organise all my books properly! 😏

bmsddk Great collection, a nice blend of old and new :) Is Emma your favourite Jane Austen book? 3y
Bookish_Predator I'm ashamed to say I have yet to read any Jane Austen books 😔 I also have Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility in those same editions. Which one of those do you recommend I start with? 3y
bmsddk There are so many good books, it is wonderfully impossible to get them all read ☺ I personally suggest Pride and Prejudice first. If you really enjoy it, then Sense and Sensibility, then Emma. If it is so-so, then Emma before Sense and Sensibility. I noticed you tagged Circle of Footprints -- what do you think of adding that one to a to-read list? 3y
Bookish_Predator They've been sitting on my shelf for years now and I want to read them, other books just call out to be read first 😏 I'll go with your recommendation then and see how I get on ☺️ i will definitely add Circle of Footprints to a to-read list, I do ❤️ me some Carolyn Keene! 3y
bmsddk Added, thanks! Curious to know your thoughts on Austen when your TBR list clears up for her :) 3y
