When you have a cat and the little demon keeps killing your book marks you end up cutting the pretty dangly bits off 😒 there is a reason her nickname is princess demon muffin!

Not too far in and I‘m a little concerned that there seems to be a portion of cultural appropriation in here....something I‘m not at all comfortable with. I shall plot on and see how it goes.

Ok, this is where I gave up on this series. I had loved it till this book but I didn‘t even make it half way through this one. I can‘t even put my finger on what didn‘t click for me!

annahenke This looks terrible. Haha. But the guy on the cover looks kind of like a constipated four from the divergent movie 1mo
Darklunarose @annahenke I shouldn‘t laugh but I am! I love urban fantasy and PNR...but this series didn‘t do it for me! 1mo

I am finally done! The book has been great, life however made it a stretched out read! So many twists and turns in this one! So many small details! I‘m looking forward to the next soon!

I read the second book in this series a few years back (still trying to list all the books I have read hear...and it‘s taking forever!) and I did enjoy this book. It‘s, to me, much better then the first.

It‘s a dark, wet and cold day in little old Adelaide. And I‘m finally finding a moment to go through some of the ideas I marked off in this book a while back.....

Hmmm....choices, choices!

It‘s a beautiful day today. The sun is out in force, even if it is a bi chilly. I‘m seriously contemplating going out somewhere where nature is in full beauty. It‘s not a day to be indoor, especially with more wild winter weather in store soon.

Crazeedi Sweet kitty!😻 2mo
Darklunarose @Crazeedi she sure is! We have 4 but this is the lap cat! 2mo
Crazeedi @Darklunarose I had 6 at one point! Now just 2, but I loved them all dearly. And yes some were lap cats, some couldn't be bothered! That's what I love about them!😻 2mo

Darklunarose @Crazeedi 6 is wonderful! We had 5 two years ago. We got this little girl Adele when we knew Cleopatra wasn‘t going to be with us long. And she brought Cleo so much joy too. Our Celestial and Alsace love to sit with us but a rest huge and don‘t fit on laps. Hermione has always been nervy. She loves oats but no pick ups. 2mo
Crazeedi @Darklunarose I ❤❤ your fur babies names! I've been wanting to add 1 or 2 more to my home, but my Spuddie and Rosie are 15 years old and I worry little pipsqueaks would be too much for them. So I'm just loving them for as long as I have them😻😻 1mo
Crazeedi @Darklunarose I miss all my kitties who passed over the rainbow bridge, they all brought me so much joy, all so different and special 😿 1mo
Darklunarose @Crazeedi at that age I would assume serious Harris,ent could happen from the tiny tiny kitteh committee! We are the same. Each and every one is different and we love them all. 1mo

Back to listing down the books I have read in the past. Strange angels is book one in this series by Lili St Crow. I love the characters the St Crow has created for this book! Graves is definitely my favourite though! Mind you Dru is pretty cool too!

Thankyou all so much for your condolences and kindness. I‘m so touched by everyone ❤️

Today I‘m finally able to sit and rest and start what is going to be a long run of self care. I think I need it. I have been pushing my fibro aside for weeks now. So today it‘s me, my book, hot camomile tea, junk food and the rain pouring on the tin roof mirroring my inner landscape. Unfortunate my baby girl cat has deserted me! I think she is cuddled out!

I‘m so sorry I have been MIA recently. We have been going through a hard time in our family. My grandpa, my rock, was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer this year and the last two weeks saw him decline steeply. I have been spending countless hours with him in hospital, holding his hand, stroking his face. This morning between 1 and 3 he crossed the bridge between this world and the next. He is at peace now and isn‘t in pain.

I read the first Dresden book a good few years ago (just revisiting the series now). Jim Butcher crafts an amazing fantasy story with so many twists and turns. So far I have to say I really love Bob! Bob isn‘t something you see every day!

Finally finished this on audiobook tonight. It‘s taken a while due to so many things happening here in real life! I think I actually enjoy audio hooks, I just can‘t listen to them as much as I would read normal books because it‘s easier to listen out when reading a book then when you have headphones on! But like them I do and I‘ll continue to listen to them!

I actually enjoyed this story. It‘s sappy, yes, but a good romance.

BooknerdsLife Awww this sounds so interesting! 🤓 Sadly I‘m not good at audio books, it takes too much of my concentration 😅 Hopefully I can find a copy of this from my library 3mo
Darklunarose @BooknerdsLife I think the books will be much easier to find then the audio books! I wanted to try audio cause my lounge is horribly dark at night and it‘s hard to read in there! Whoever decided on where to place the lights didn‘t think it out well! I can also crochet at the same time as listening which is a bonus! 3mo
jb72 It took me a while to get into audiobooks. At first, it was a complete no, but then I started with nonfiction, and slowly fiction. I can listen so much better now. It took a few years for me to get going on it. 3mo
Darklunarose @jb72 it took me a little bit to be able to take it in. My biggest issue is kids interrupting! Mainly via pm on the device I use lol! 3mo

When I heard Meyer was releasing a new version of twilight a few years ago I made a bee line to the book shop to grab a copy. I wasn‘t sure how this would go, it was to be different obviously and I honestly loved the original twilight. But I truely enjoyed reading this. Loved Edythe. It‘s not for everyone but I enjoyed the new rendition.

First time trying an audio book. Still really unwell and not focusing, and today hubby has succumbed. H had been trying to fool himself he wasn‘t getting this the last few days so that‘s two kids and three adults in this house down and out! Hope audio books work well for me! Would be so good for times I can‘t focus well.

I know people either love or hate Twilight but I am firmly in the Love It camp. It‘s the book I wish had been around when I was a teenager but I had to wait till I was near 30 for! I recon I read this just after the movie came out after being encouraged by my eldest daughters friend who has loved the series. Never looked back!

I‘m still sick as anything. Want to stay in bed and not move from pain and headache kind of sick. Cancelled so many plans this week already, only to have them taken over by sitting at the local drs with a sick kid (same virus that‘s turned to ear infection for the littlest) and having the other two kids getting this as well. It‘s going to be a super long week.
