February update - I got to go to a book event at a local Barnes and Noble last month, had an awesome birthday going out with my husband, then a party and saw both my sisters - one flew several hundred miles to come. Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes too!!😃

Ruthiella Happy birthday! 🥳🥳🥳 3w

Haven‘t posted much here lately, but read 12 books during February! This was my last read of the month, and I really liked it! The alternating POV‘s between the 50‘s and present day upped the suspense. Both MC‘s were relatable and engaging, and I loved the look into what life was like for women in NYC in the 50‘s. It was a page-turner that I finished in two sittings. I recommend this one to anyone who loves a good story.

azulaco All of her books sound good. Added to my library wish list. 3w

Calling all #nancydrew and #thriller fans - I started a book club on Fable. My goal is to read mystery/thriller type books that give Nancy Drew vibes - intrepid girl detective etc. I have seen a lot of books that I feel could fall into this category- possibly even some that cross over into fantasy as well. Not all necessarily YA either. I invite you to join if these are your kind of books!

Couldn‘t get through this one. The main character was immature and so rude to a person she had just met. I was a third of the way into the book and no crime had even happened yet. Had to put it down. #winterreadathon @Andrew65 @DieAReader @GHABI4ROSES

Andrew65 A real shame as love the title. 😔 3mo

Charityann @Roary47 Thanks! I actually bought these dolls as a grownup- my parents couldn‘t afford them either. I found these in great condition second-hand and couldn‘t pass it up. Samantha and Molly were my favorites.😆 4mo
