It's a bit blurry, but this is the perfect day for this as im cleaning up my garage. Don't hate me @aroc! We have been friends since high school and this is one of my favorite pics.
1. The Song of the Lioness Quartet
2. The Who
3. & 4. See above. One of many haircuts. Typical outfit jeans and a hoodie.
5. Didn't really use one

1. Jemima J and I'm reading again now.
2. The Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce. I have lost track how many times I've read the series. It was once a year at one point.
3. Goodreads and a journal. I used to use OneNote, but I stopped.
4. I couldn't get any recent pictures to work so I I took this one. I've always loved this cover.

I loved reading this book. It's a great overview of some well-known and some not so well-known Christmas movies. One one issue is that The Santa Clause us not included. But I'm very happy to add this to not only my books on movies, but to my books in Christmas as well.

I had to do this one! I read this before I worked an author event at my library. I had never read anything by Jennifer Weiner but tried this based on a recommendation from @YummyLibrarian. I loved it and loved listening to and meeting Jennifer Weiner. Really great book! #hungryheart #marchintothe70s

Choices | Skyy
post image

@cathysaid @sprainedbrain @EmilyM. So here are two choices I found on my TBR list. I'm going to look for more, but this is a start! The only thing is Clock Dance is not in paperback yet 😒. I don't know how everyone feels about shipping a hardcover book around. I'll take the books in the comments.

sprainedbrain Too funny... Evelyn Hugo was one of the (many) I was thinking of sending, but mine is a hardcover. So, I would vote for that one, but honestly wouldn‘t mind shipping a hardcover or reading the other one! 6mo

aroc This one gets my vote! I loved it! 6mo
EmilyM I am good with either--I don't mind shipping a hardcover! 6mo
cathysaid @EmilyM @sprainedbrain I agree. No problems here with sending a hard cover. I have read 7 husbands but loved it so much I would be happy to read again. Either book works for me. 6mo
sprainedbrain Ok I‘m changing my vote... since Cathy has read Evelyn, can we do Clock Dance? 6mo
EclecticBookLover Clock Dance it is! @sprainedbrain @cathysaid @EmilyM 😁. They both sound really good, but I was hoping everyone would like Clock Dance 😊 6mo
EmilyM Yay! It has been on my list of books to read! 6mo

This quote really resonated with me. I'm really enjoying this book. I added it to my TBR because of all the posts with the cover (with and without the jacket) and I was lucky enough to receive it as part of my #XmasXstitchExchange from @BookaholicNatty. Not my typical read, but I'm hooked!

IheartYA One of my 2018 favorites! 7mo
BookaholicNatty Yay!!!!!! I‘m so glad that you are enjoying it! Since you had it on your TBR I decided to get me one too 😂 Your review sounds fantastic and makes me want to read it sooner! After I saw it in your TBR it started popping up all over the place. I didn‘t realize how popular it was this past year! 7mo

Her Naughty Holiday | Tiffany Reisz
post image
Pickpick

I loved this book! This was a quick read I was able to finish on my vacation. I loved the characters and thought Clover and Erick were wonderful. By far the best part of the book was the Thanksgiving dinner--it was epic! It was so entertaining. This is the second book in Tiffany Reisz's Men at Work series and I highly recommend both of them. This was a perfect, quick holiday romance. Hopefully the third is just as good!

As soon as I heard about this book months ago, I couldn't wait to read it and I wasn't disappointed. I really enjoyed the natural, narrative style Roger Daltrey wrote. It was almost conversational and made the book go by quickly. Definitely not the typical rock star life. I wish there was a little more about his solo career and acting, but I know the focus was The Who. #TheWho #WhoAreYou #RockandRoll

EclecticBookLover @Nute Give it a try! I read the first few books, but then someone said how much they enjoyed listening to them and how wonderful the author is and they we're right. James Marsters does an amazing job. He practically spoils me for other narrators. 7mo
