Fun little novella, maybe too similar to her other books but great to walk along to. Finished in a day during 2 walks.
Such a special, thoughtful and powerful book. George shares his story with unflinching grace and an open heart in a way that I hope helps people appreciate and understand the the LGBTQIA+ community. I‘m so thankful he has shared his truth with us. Highly recommend! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks 🏳️🌈
This post war noir set in Atlanta Georgia follows the story of the first 8 black police officers and the corrupt system in which they find themselves. The prose is tight, compelling and impactful and the author pulls no punches in yelling this thrilling story. Great on #audio
Great info here. Not all of it was new, but presented in a way to make you think about food and consumption and how it affects both your health and the health of the planet. A great reference book to have on your shelf! Making headway on my bingo board! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
Thank you so much, @Liz_M ! I love everything in my #litsyrecipeswap package so much! The recipes all sound wonderful and I‘ve been wanting to poke through this recipe book forever and can‘t wait to try ever! Thank you, thank you! @BennettBookworm thank for organizing this amazing swap!
Finally visited Nowhere Bookshop in San Antonio! I‘ve ordered from them online but what a charming, interesting store to poke around in! Owned by author Jenny Lawson, it is filled to the brim with books, puzzles, and bookish fun! #indiebookstore
Goodness, this was wonderful. I was so mad and almost gave up on this book 60% in but then realized it wasn‘t what it seemed and I‘m so glad I hung in there. There was a twist that made it totally worthwhile. Warm and meaningful, this book grabs you in all the right places and keeps you reading until the end. #romantsy
An important book, filled with thoughtful and rage inducing perspectives and facts about gender, power, and equality. Highly recommend this book to you, your friends, your daughters and sons. #audiobook was great! #bookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
Astonishing! This book reads like a spy novel but it is all true! The bravery and fortitude demonstrated by this American woman fighting for France in WW2 had me cheering for her the whole way while at the same time wanting to shake some sense into her superiors. She single handed my changed the course of the war and managed to turn the tide in several fronts in France. And so we‘ll researched and written! Read this book! #herstory ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thank you @DinoMom and @ShelleyBooksie ! I am overwhelmed with how you‘ve spoiled me and made me feel special. When my #litsylovesanimals #swap package didn‘t arrive, you were so kind to send me one. With the cutest 🐕🦺 tote (my new gym bag), chocolate, so many cute stickers, stamps, 🐘book marks, 🐷post-it‘s (so cute), cards, and 3 books! The tagged one I can‘t wait to read and the other 2 look delightful. Thank you so much! Max is excited too!
The last few letters were so good, I couldn‘t stop reading! What a great finish! This felt both similar and very different from her other books. I though that epistolary format was really effective and added to the story. I think this could be modernized in a really interesting way. #pemberlittens #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
Strange and beautiful, this mystery immerses you in the Siberian peninsula in Soviet Russia and, like the location, is unusual and starkly lovely. I listened on #audio but want to read it agin in print to follow all the separate stories that somehow perfectly wind together in the end. Wow, quite a debut! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
This story was poignant and unexpected. Well written and perfectly paced, it deals with suicide, grief and loss in a measured, respectful way and still manages to be uplifting and positive. The characters are authentic and memorable, I just loved them and was rooting for them from the start. #BookspinBingo #Doublespin @TheAromaofBooks
Exquisite! This is an epic coming of age story that being to mind the best of Dickens and Twain but with a more modern, accurate view of Indigenous, poor, and uneducated populations. Beautifully written, the prose sings in places and I loved every minute of the #audiobook . #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
I so enjoyed this on #audio ! Dolly‘s story through songs is a true inspiration. I loved hearing about her process and outlook. If you are a Dolly fan, or even if you aren‘t, give this a try!
This book is just darling! I loved the characters and mad-cap story line with pirates, ladies, and silliness. A great escape and the perfect read for a Saturday afternoon! I think this completes 5 bingoes! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
Wow! So good! Perfect mix of fantasy, suspense and romance. I understand the hype! Read this 624 page #chunkster in less than a week. Waffling between reading the next one immediately or taking a bit of a break to stretch out the story. Love, love, love this series! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
Strange, unsettling. Is it a suspenseful thriller or an account of a woman becoming unhinged? Kept me listening to see what would happen but I‘m this wasn‘t the most effective use of an unreliable narrator. And the MC was quite annoying so it was difficult for me to empathize with her. #Bookspin #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
Wonderful! Perfect for #audiogardening It felt expansive, beautiful, and dangerous. Just like the Alaskan wilderness where it is set. The writing is gorgeous, just like every Hannah book I‘ve read. I listened on #audio though I‘ve owned the book since it was released. Glad I finally got to it! #MountTBR #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
First #buddyread with #PemberLittens was so fun! Lovely to read so slowly, a chapter a day and, while it was strange at first, I enjoyed the pace and the time it gave me to think through the themes. A grittier world than Austen‘s, but the push/pull between industry/class, city/rural, business owner/worker, individual/community is riveting. Mr. Thornton is a great hero because he is so invested in the relationship. @MicrobeMom @sprainedbrain
This fascinating book is nonfiction meets memoir and was amazing! There are so many components to this story, finding your path, Private Eyes, survival and advocating for others, and really terrible men. Difficult to read in places; CW for sexual abuse, child abuse, rape, and institutionalized rape culture. Krouse wove this book together in a way that made it accessible, illuminating, powerful, and affirming. Outstanding.
I‘ve had this book since 2017 when it was a #BOTM choice. Finally read it by listening on #audio. It was good, a solid mystery with a few compelling characters and a couple of baddies. I‘m glad I read it though it wasn‘t earth shattering. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
I liked this one a lot, even if they did make me a little crazy-just talk it out people! But it was really funny and the chemistry was through the roof! I will definitely read more from Lynn Painter. #BookspinBingo #AwesomeApril #readathon @TheAromaofBooks @Andrew65
This quirky queer romcom was a fun bit of escapism during a busy work week. I loved the diverse cast of characters and found family vibe along with the behind the scenes setting of a The Bachelor-type show. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #awesomeapril @Andrew65
Fantastic! Loved it even more than the first in the series. This series is full of charm, humor, depth, and mystery. Seriously, everyone needs to read this book!
My goodness, what a riveting book. It stopped me in my tracks, made me need to keep reading to find out what would happen in the aftermath of a tragic accident and the characters coming to terms with their new reality. Thoughtful and honest, this book by Katherine Center is my first but won‘t be my last. #bookspinbingo #awesomeapril @TheAromaofBooks @Andrew65
