Not book related, but I was too excited not to share. I found this Victrola on sale for $26! Then realized that I didn‘t have any records. 🤦🏼‍♀️ so I went to an estate sale and found these three 1947 record books in great condition for $24 total! These are the songs that my grandpa played and sang for me when I was little, so I am ecstatic! 😁😁

About to crack open this beauty! 😍 I don‘t remember every reading these stories but I‘ve seen most of the movie adaptations so I‘m excited to see what they got right and what they‘ve changed. 😁 (P.S. can we just talk about this Alice in Wonderland pocket watch necklace?! Books a Million FTW! 😍)

I really enjoyed The Cassandra Complex! It had a very interesting story line and it kept my attention. I wish the books were a little longer so that some developments didn‘t seem so rushed. But all in all! I‘d give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️‘s and will probably read this series again! (Book # 4 is in the works so I‘m already excited to revisit the series!)

I started this book today and finished it within a couple of hours. It was very interesting! The storyline was kinda hard to keep straight and it harkens back to The Continuum, so I highly recommend reading them one right after the other. Overall I am really enjoying this trilogy, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ On to the last one! 😁

I enjoyed this little Novella! The writing style was nice, albeit a little cliché at points. The pacing was pretty good with only a slow spot here and there. There were a couple twists that I didn‘t see coming, which is rare. Overall a very enjoyable read, I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I can‘t wait to read the next book!
Also during the last few chapters all that went through my mind was “wibbly wobbly timey wimey”. Lol ?

Alrighty! Now that I have recovered from The Book Thief, I have started digging into this novella. It‘s pretty good so far. Nothing life altering but still interesting. This is the first book out of a trilogy so I will be sure to review them all. 😊

Okay so apparently my house was wayy to cold an environment for my first succulent. (I live in Florida, indoors vs. the outdoors might as well be different ecosystems half the time. Lol 😂) So I moved it outside, and... got it a few little friends. I left the new ones outside for a week and they are doing much better in more sunlight and warmer temps! so fingers crossed it‘ll pull the first one from the brink! 🤞🏻

Mynameisacolour Aww it almost does look like the little ones surrounding the big one are cheering it on😊 2w

(Please read above first! ❤️)I loved this author‘s writing style. The story really pulled me in and I found myself loving every character in it. I figured, given the subject matter that it would be sorrowful, but I did not expect to be affected the way I was. That said, I highly recommend this book, so long as you can handle the author‘s descriptive writing of the events and aftermath of WWII. Now I‘m off to find something a little less heavy. 📖

Not book related, but, I made a mini Coffee Bar near my reading nook earlier this year and this weekend I decided it needed a bit of a makeover. I definitely prefer the white to the bronze(ish) color. It fits with my decor much better. 😁

This book is sending me on an emotional roller coaster ride. 😭 I read 250 pages in one sitting because the story pulled me in and wouldn‘t let go. 😫 Now if you‘ll excuse me, I‘m going to read/do something a little more lighthearted to recharge. 📱📖

I am so excited! I got an ARC from LibraryThing for The Cassandra Complex. Sci Fi is my fav genre, so I have a feeling I‘m going to love it. I haven‘t read this series before but I was hooked up the first two books as well! ❤️😁 I‘m fixing to settle in for a Weekend of Reading. 📖

(Update on The Book Thief. Still really enjoying this one. I haven‘t had as much time to devote to it but I am planning on finishing it soon. Review to come!)

Still enjoying this book! Such a great story and awesome writing. There is some strong language that I typically shy away from. So if you don‘t like profanity, this book may not be for you.

On an unrelated note, after years of killing any poor plant I laid eyes on, I think this succulent might be the one thing I can‘t kill! (Hopefully. Lol) Keep this guy in your prayers. He‘s gonna need it. #prayersforplanty 😂

This book was pretty interesting. While the writing wasn‘t spectacular, it was nice to learn more about Roman and Jewish cultures and to see Christ‘s crucifixion and resurrection from a different perspective. Although this story is not 100% biblically accurate, It was still a pretty good read. I‘d give it 3 1/2⭐️s (It‘s a pick for me because I could see myself reading it again).

KathyWheeler I liked the movie but haven‘t read the book. 1mo
Jsara5761 I haven‘t seen the movie, but based on the author‘s note there are some additions to the story that you may enjoy! 😊 1mo

So far this book has been a quick read! There are some thought provoking passages and it‘s been interesting learning more about Roman and Jewish customs. However I‘m still so-so on the writing and the book overall. But I‘ll wait to pass judgment until the end. 📖

I really enjoyed this book! If you‘re a fan of Sci-fi and don‘t mind older writing styles then I highly recommend it! There are some places where the pacing is slow and I found myself zoning out, but it was still a nice read. 📖👍🏻

Lcsmcat I‘m not a sci-fi fan usually, but I liked Wells‘ writing and how he focused on the human relationships rather than the technological gizmos. 1mo
