June #riotgrams day 13, best dedications.
A Storm of Swords - George R.R. Martin
A Week to Be Wicked - Tessa Dare
Circe - Madeline Miller
1) I do, and don‘t keep a journal. I‘ve been thinking of writing again, so maybe a dream journal might give me ideas. 🤔
2) A dragon, and I‘d name him Fitz.
3) Elizabeth Bennet from Pride & Prejudice
4) Currently the lands in The Priory of the Orange Tree.
Haul from E Shaver in Savannah, GA.
E Shaver Bookseller in Savannah, GA, a wonderful little shop with resident cats! 🐱♥️
When I first saw the format this book was written in, I wasn‘t sure if I‘d get into it, but it pulled me in right away. The Fleetwood Mac/seventies bands influence is obvious, but these characters stand on their own. And get under your skin. The ending was too open ended for my taste, but all in all a great story with lots of ups, downs, and emotional moments. A keeper.
1) Nearest library is half an hour away, and I borrow mostly ebooks, so I only go a few times a year. 😕
4) No, the beauty of borrowing electronically is that your books automatically return on the due date. Plus, you get notifications when the loan is about to end. No stress no fuss!
6) The Priory of the Orange Tree...which I ended up buying. 😆
I usually don‘t jump all over a book by an author unknown to me, but I‘ve been keeping my eye on this one for several months and took the plunge. I‘ve been looking for a big, epic fantasy, and this beauty is right up my alley. Fingers crossed that I like it!

1) Historical romance, especially Lisa Kleypas!
2) Going to an annual ice festival tomorrow. Been there before and the sculptures are beautiful.
3) What‘s not to love about a badass female physician in Victorian London who fights off assailants with a cane?
4) None that I can think of off hand, but I‘m sure I‘ve got some! 😂
Hi everyone, let‘s get together! I follow back on GR and IG and will try on Pinterest, though I‘m not on there frequently.
I love this book! I was expecting a fluffy holiday romance when I first started reading, and it‘s not. Even though it‘s labeled as romance and there‘s a central love story, I consider it more of a coming of age tale. Three friends navigate their twenties dealing with careers, relationships, and challenges. There‘s plenty of angst, uncertainty, and mistakes being made, but that‘s what makes it real. This is definitely a keeper and a reread!
Holiday reading! 🎄⛄️ ❄️ #botm
I‘m really sad about this one because I was so excited about it. Started out well enough, an ancient manuscript in a library is total catnip for me, but it went downhill fast. The plot moves slowly and I slogged through 200 pages before giving up. Also, SO over vampire love interests, just my personal preference.
1) Hand out candy. Love seeing little ones in costume!
2) Black cats!
3) Scary movie, the more people I‘m with the better. 😱
Favorite scary book is The Exorcist, even more terrifying than the movie. To this day I dislike ouija boards.
Couldn‘t put this down! It has all the fantasy elements I love, though the romance is a bit underwhelming. That‘s really not important though because the heart of the book is about a young woman‘s journey, with a little help from her friends. Big thumbs up for the strong and beautiful female friendship, loyal friends who have one‘s back (literally and figuratively here) are a blessing.
2) Pumpkin Spice Latte. Yes, yes, totally predictable but I love the stuff. #sorrynotsorry 😬
3) Hayride, preferably haunted! 👻
5) Absolutely, though it‘s not for every food. Example - pumpkin spice yogurt is NASTY. 🤢
1) Festival treats from the Yankee Peddler. Fall festival season is my favorite time of year!
2) A Beatles tribute band.
4) Just found out Forensic Files is on Netflix and I‘ve been binging!
5) Just started Uprooted and it‘s hard to put down. I really can‘t tell where it‘s going to go and I kinda like that.
