Life's been rough recently, so I've been doing a LOT of audiobook listening. This Lady Traveler's book is just the fluffy sort of distracting romance I need right now.

Happy Monday Litsy!

I've loved cozy mysteries since before I knew exactly what the genre was. They remain some of my most favorite long-running series. These are the first books my #Top6 cozy mystery series. As you might can tell, I have a special soft spot for book and food themed settings. The Magical Bakery & Tea Shop mysteries are particularly good! Mmmmh, tea & scones. 😻

Happy Monday Litsy! Hope everyone had a great weekend. 😁

I've got a new #Top6List this morning, non-violent true crime! One of my biggest surprises when I came to work at the library was the popularity of the true crime genre. These are true crime books for people like me who can't stand all the murder and gore! They follow crimes that are often twisty, dark, and devious, but rarely get anyone killed. Enjoy!

Megabooks I‘ve read 4/6 and liked 3/4. I didn‘t like Stranger in the Woods. I‘ve added Gardner to my TBR! Thanks! 2w

My July 2019 reads! Much better than June, but still a slower month. Hopefully now that Summer reading has died down things will go back to normal.

Interesting, but ultimately forgettable. I enjoyed the premise, but it was a really slow build up to a whole lot of nothing. Still, my second book for #24in48

Tonight I got to tell Homer Hickam just how much his book Carrying Albert Home meant to me and he gave me a hug! 😍

This remains one of the most beautiful and enchanting books I have ever read and it has stayed with me and I feel it will be with me for a long time.

If you have not had a chance to go on this journey with Albert the alligator I implore you to pick up a copy at once! You won't be disappointed!

DebinHawaii I read this a couple of years ago & reviewed it on my blog. Such a sweet book & Mr. Hickman left some nice comments. 🐊💚Big love for him & for Albert! 1mo

I admit it, I judge books by their covers. You should! They spend a lot of money making the covers appealing and reflective of the book. I adore lovely covers. 😻

A follow up to my best camp novels, these are my most favorite boarding school novels for teens. Something about the atmosphere of the boarding school and the drama! 😊 📕

Noticeably missing is Harry Potter. For some reason I don't actually consider those boarding school books. I adore Harry & his adventures, but they are a thing all in themselves.

It's summer time and there's nothing I liked better when the weather is hot than a camp novel! I'm not big on thrillers, but set yours at a summer Camp and I am THERE. Some of my favorite (or most anticipated to read) camp novels. Or, in the case of Truly Devious, boarding school novels that feel like camp novels.

#11 in the Mercy Thompson series did not disappoint! Seeing as I devoured the entire book in a single sitting. . . I've been reading these books since high school and they're still fun, engaging, reads. Love the blends of different mythologies and religious influences.

I love my #BOTM box, but I fully admit I am rubbish at reading these as they arrive. I got my subscription for Christmas 2017 and I have unread books going back to February 2018. Here is my current BOTM #TBR. I'm going to make an effort over the next few weeks to read some of these, starts with An American Marriage.

Stumbled across this one at work! It's part list, part cookbook, and part essay collection about food from Jewish culture. The essays are laugh out loud worthy. I know very little about Jewish cuisine so I am very excited.
