I started this #AudioCommute the other day. I liked book one of the Mystic Bayou series, so I figured book 2 would be right up my alley. So far it's not disappointing. Zeb is absolutely adorable! (Also the voice of the narrator is so handsome!)

I have about a 25-30 min drive to work, and because of my little anxiety issue, I usually get their way earlier (like an extra 20ish minutes)... All and all this means that I have plenty of time during my #AudioCommute :) I enjoyed this story. It could have used a little bit more spice though. They are free on Audible, so I will be enjoying Book 2 as well.

Fat bees! My fav!

slategreyskies I‘m the same way about my work arrival time. I leave between 50-60 minutes before my shift starts, and it takes 20-25 minutes to get there. It means I get the parking spot I prefer most days, and it also means I have a chunk of time to mentally prep for work before I have to go in and be “on.” 1w
ElizaMarie @slategreyskies yes!!! I do enjoy the moments in the morning of just breathing. It‘s a nice quiet before walking into a wild ER 1w

Been told repeatedly to watch this show. I am usually a “book first” kinda gal. What do y‘all suggest? Is it one you should read first? And how many books = season 1? #BookToScreen

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Does the series as books hold great appeal to you? I haven‘t watched or read it - but I think there are enough changes that the show can stand by itself. I think each book is a season as the Bridgertons are siblings - each season follows a different siblings path to marriage. 1w
Chrissyreadit I think you are fine to watch whether you read the books or not. They are eye candy. and the costumes and banter are delicious. 1w
KateReadsYA I just started watching it yesterday, thanks to my husband getting to pick our next Netflix watch. I was surprised he chose this and I haven't read the books yet but the show is a lot of fun. 1w

Soubhiville I haven‘t read the books but have enjoyed the show. The costumes, choreography, music, and sets are beautiful. I find the stories a bit predictable, but the characters are endearing. 1w
ElizaMarie @thegirlwiththelibrarybag - I really am enjoying this show so far. I feel like I am not usually in love with historical romance type of books (although I love love love Pride & Prejudice). I decided to forgo the novels and focus on the beauty and the show instead :) 1w
ElizaMarie @Chrissyreadit Oh yes! I love love love everything about it so far. I am at about 3 episodes in. And it's so hard to tear myself away from it. 1w
ElizaMarie @KateReadsYA Oooo I am on episode 3!!! I had heard that it was such a great show, and several people have recommended that I read it. My husband did the whole - not wanting to watch it - but had a hard time getting dressed and ready for work this morning as he was glued to the TV !!! Ha! I love it when that happens! Your hubby has some good taste! 1w
ElizaMarie @Soubhiville I am enjoying it as well. I feel like the books might not be for me“ but the show is definitely for me! 1w
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @ElizaMarie, my reading and watching taste are different too - nothing wrong with that! Glad you‘ve decided to just enjoy the show ☺️ 7d

This was a cute (quick) coming-of-age queer YA. I enjoyed it. I initially got this as an audio, but I had to download the Kindle version (it read much better in print). I love how the MC understood that the most important thing was for him to be him and the fans can either love/hate him. All that stress, poor guy. But well done book! #QueerBC @PuddleJumper

#BookToScreen - I‘m already seeing the huge difference in the book vs this screen. He seems so much more loving and into her - a lot less red flags ❗. Like it makes me not feel like she was as nieve and young as she is in the book. of course I'm posting this as she just gets to Manderly.

It was just an “okay“ for me. I mean. It's not like it was bad bad or anything like that. But.... It just felt very predictable. I know a lot of information was slowly leaked out throughout but... I felt myself not really caring too much. The characters were just, eh.

Anyway, here is my new #BirdBuddy

This was just “okay“ for me. I feel like the story was super far-fetched (but again, what cozy isn't a bit far-fetched). Maybe because this isn't the 1st in the series? Perhaps because I doubt someone would go to those lengths for a home? Or maybe just... i mean. That house sounds so out of their price range. --- but I finished this super quick, so it did keep me interested enough

ElizaMarie @IndoorDame @dabbe @AmyG - thanks! We have this “bird buddie,“ which records birds that visit that feeder. So.. I get some adorable pictures of birds sent to my phone. It makes me happy to see them. This bird comes over quite often. And I think his girlfriend is coming over too. She isn't as red (so I think that means she is a she). Honestly don't know much about birds, but I enjoy them when they are being cute and dropping by. 3w
IndoorDame @ElizaMarie okay, that is a use of technology I can totally get behind. I love the idea of seeing the birds that visit when you‘re not there! 3w

Velvetfur The 'bird buddy' sounds great! That is such a gorgeous little visitor too 🥰 3w
ElizaMarie @bookandbedandtea Oh it's great! I had gotten it for my husband as a gift (I can't remember the gift occasion, though), but.. he had been feeding the birds and doing garden stuff, so this worked. I share the app log in - shared account. So I can peak. Also, they give you facts about the birdies. 3w
