Oh my gosh @tdrosebud I am so sorry I forgot to post this yesterday! Thank you so much for the lovely #FallAtHogwartsSwap Box! I absolutely love everything in here. I‘m especially excited about the chocolate wand because a friend gave me one last year and it was delicious. Also the pins are going to look SO CUTE on my student government (advisor) sweater. The books are great too! Thank you so much and so sorry that I‘m terrible at Elfster.

I had a very bad day, so I convinced my husband to take my to get french fries and some books. Honestly just reading some of the crazy cozy mystery titles cheered me up (like the tagged book that has an even better plot summary). I love cozies so much.

Mariposa_Bookworm My absolute favorite cozy mystery title is one called “When the Grits hit the fan.” I really can‘t resist any of them as long as there‘s a cat and dessert involved. 2mo
thegreensofa Hi Jamie! I hope you are having a better day :). I want to say thank you, you are an amazing and beautiful person.My package came today and you have cheered me up immensely! Thank you thank you thank you!!!! 💚💚thegreensofa 2mo
JamieLou @thegreensofa I‘m so glad it got there!! I was a little worried since I didn‘t know your last name but the postal worker gave me the idea to put “Bee”. Also I had a lot more treats in there but then I read (at the post office 😂) you are vegan so I hurried and took them out. Sorry it was a little barebones! Anyways that book looks so good I got a second copy for myself. Enjoy! 2mo
JamieLou @Mariposa_Bookworm That sounds hilarious! I love the ones with pets. My husband is a dog person so he always buys me ones with dogs on the cover. 😂😂 2mo

Also I totally didn‘t think about my Elfster being full of Harry Potter stuff because I‘ve mostly done Harry Potter themed swaps on there, so thanks for working around my crazy self.

So we finished listening to this book while driving through miles of dark forest in Oregon. It was the perfect spooky setting for the last few hours of the story. Even my husband (who is pretty anti-book lately) was impressed with the final FINAL plot twist-a very twisty twist. Overall I enjoyed the story, but sometimes found Emma a little cringe worthy. I‘d give it 4/5 🔪 🔪 🔪🔪

MaleficentBookDragon This is my favorite book by Sager. 3mo

Wow @Amandajoy !! Thank you so so much! I love it ALL. The books look amazing, the llama book mark and stickees are SO cute and the mug, notebook, and pins are too fun! Plus those pens are BEAUTIFUL. The card did come, my husband said it was brought over a few days ago by my neighbor which is why I didnt find it until you mentioned it. It‘s a really cute card too! I can‘t wait to dive in and experience *all the feels* myself. Thank you again!

So, true story. I accidentally opened my package yesterday thinking it was the 21st. Then when I grabbed my phone to take a pic of the cute wrapping, I saw the date. 🤦🏻‍♀️ So I took this and put it all back. But now my sister is sleeping in the living room and I have to wait for her to get up 😖 I just wanted to let @Amandajoy know I didn‘t forget and that I LOVE all the llama stickers. I can‘t wait to see what‘s inside. #summersantagoespostal

Amandajoy Ha! I might have opened it anyway and waited to post a picture. I‘m sure it was the 21st somewhere in the world! Did you get the card I sent? I forgot to include it so I had send it separately... 4mo
JamieLou @Amandajoy I‘m totally the person that opens things ASAP and then pretends like I didn‘t 😂 but I told myself I would wait just this once so I felt like I had to. I did get the card! Super cute, thank you. Good luck wedding planning!! 4mo

Littens! Hook me up this beautiful #recommensday . Last summer, everyone was raving over The Death of Mrs. Westaway so I downloaded it on audible for my week long gig chaperoning leadership conference and LOVED it. This year I‘m going back to USULC (with new people) and I DESPERATELY need something just as intriguing to keep me occupied. I loved the style of Westaway (like how it was no gore just twisty). So... What do you have for me?

JamieLou I should let it be known this is the first and only thriller I‘ve ever read/ listened to. Usually I do cozies. 4mo
AmyG I don‘t know how they are on audible but a few thrillers I liked were No Exit and The Silent Patient. 4mo
Victoriahoperose The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager was really good! 4mo
shellleigh33 I second @AmyG didn‘t listen to Silent Patient on audible but just read it and thought it was really good. Also loved Behind Her Eyes but only read it. 4mo

This book had its moments, don‘t get me wrong, but it just wasn‘t the same as Rebel Belle. I once read an author who said the middle book was her favorite in any series, so I was looking forward to this one a lot and was kind of let down.
