This was sweet, but not quite the mix up i was expecting 😂 no accidental texts or calls or dates planned with the wrong person at all #audiobook #libraryloan

This was a great follow up to the first book. Definitely read these in order as there's lots of call backs to the first book and it explains the characters more. I do hope there's a third in this series though! I love Lillian and Willowjean

First book down, One in a week is good for me and my neglected Kindle... Let's thank insomnia for that.

Otherwise I enjoyed the split narrative dual perspective fast paced book!

It's a relaxing at my mother in law's to escape our hot house, starting a new book kind of new year's Day for me 💕💕

Goodreads did me dirty and listed a book twice making me think I'd finished my challenge for 2021.

Luckily @thegirlwiththelibrarybag leant me this super adorable graphic novel.

So.... If you were a ghost, where would you haunt?

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Disneyland does seem like a solid option… but maybe a forest - or a really excellent, messy second hand bookstore? 🧐 👻 8mo
Flingogal @thegirlwiththelibrarybag oooh like the one in Bendigo, that would be awesome to haunt 8mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Flingogal - that was the one I was picturing 👻📚 8mo

This was cute, and I think it would be super helpful for a MG going through parental divorce to help them navigate the emotions, but I didn't love it, there were a few plot holes and interesting magical timelines 🤣 #bolindaaudio #librarylisten

I was hesitant about this #librarylisten as after starting it I saw a GR friend had bailed on it. But I enjoyed it for what it was, and it was a quaint reflection on Australian life in the 1970s and 80s in outback Northern Territory. Sophie Green read beautifully. #wavesoundaudio

"The dead girl‘s legs were splayed across the floor. She was wearing grimy boots with mismatched socks. That seemed very sad. I mean, it was sad that she was dead anyway—probably, unless she‘d been a horrible person—but dying with mismatched socks seemed especially sad somehow."

If you wear socks are you team Match or mismatch? I love mismatching my socks, I guess that makes me especially sad ?

I was tempted so many times, but glad I waited!!

thegirlwiththelibrarybag It was hard to know which cover to go with - the plain coloured ones are gone and most the hardbacks are now out of print 😅 I‘ve got a few of the later ones but idk if a matching set is completely possible... Can‘t wait for a chocolate review! 2y
