This was a #Goodreads giveaway and it's so pretty, I wanted desperately to love it. But the truth is it's a total snore - there is no real conflict - everything always works out perfect for our Fairy Princess. She meets the hero and hates him for about 10 minutes- then they're hopelessly in love! It's mostly page after page (647 of them!) of descriptions of clothes, and the food they ate ,and when she bathed and what Lady was in love w/ what Lord.

My new coffee nook /reading spot - thanks to 🎅for the early gift of a Kuerig ❤ Any one have favorite k- cups to suggest? I plan to stock the bookshelf with my short story collections ( I have over 50 volumes!) so there's always a quick read nearby.

TheLibrarian Green Mountain seems to be my favorite brand. The caramel vanilla is my absolute favorite flavor. 3y
Joybishoptx Fun! I like the teas and the chai lattes. As a general rule Keurigs brew a little stronger, so keep that in kind. Maybe pick up a few variety packs and try some out! Have fun! 3y
JustTrish Oh ! yes @joybishoptx I love tea & the chai latte is high on my list of cups to try! @TheLibrarian caramel vanilla sounds divine! 3y

I think I'm going to do #LitsyAtoZ I've chosen all the titles from my TBR folder on my Kindle - got everything but J, Q, X, and Z. I'll have to scout a bit for those.
Suggestions welcome!

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I did the mix category so I could use some others on my TBR list for those. Like this one where the author's last name starts with Z. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa So reshuffle your list by author and see if that helps. 3y

This was the #BOTM choice for me and they were so right! I stayed up into the wee hours to finish - I just couldn't put it down! I am so in love with Daniel and Natasha!
Also as Dana Schwartz said - it makes you want to know the life story of every stranger you meet. This is a book with heart.❤❤❤

Mehso-so

Overall I enjoyed it. It is intense and creepy scary in places, but sometimes dragged a bit for me. My biggest peeve was that the main character was just so WHINY, sometimes I wanted to shake her! But this might be blamed on the narrator. If you like weak seeming female protagonists who find their strength and/ or creepy otherworld stories give it a try. #audiocoloring

I LOVE this book. It drew me in from the very first words and held on right until the end. I loved the mystery of Penny's family and that Zink gives you the pieces of the back story, but doesn't spell it out - lets you get there on your own. #BOTM is 2 for 2 with me now! I'm already anticipating next month! Also love the color theme I've got going on here 😎

Reviewsbylola I always trust BOTM because out of 14 books that I have read from them, only two were just so-so. The rest were great! 3y

They could have let Dad sleep through all that. Everybody knows people are animals, only smarter. It's wrong to torture any animal, even for it's own good. Especially then. But instead of giving him real drugs, they kept wanting him to be alert, so he could make his peace with God. I always thought religuous people were massively annoying. Now I know they're evil.

Now, secrets are delicate things. They can fill you up with sweetness and leave you like a cat who has found a particularly fat sparrow to eat and did not get clawed or bitten even once while she was about it. But they can also get stuck inside you, and very slowly boil up your bones for their bitter soup. Then the secret has you, not the other way around.

brilliantglow This is one of my favourite series ever. So well written, fantastical and entertaining. 3y
JustTrish @brilliantglow Found this one at the $ store, got home, realized it was the 2nd book and had to go order the first from Amazon! Now I guess there's 4 or 5 more? They are beautiful for sure. 3y

Wow. On the surface it's a typical "teen rebels, gets in a lot of trouble, but learns important lessons about life/himself" - but it goes much deeper than that- to questioning the very existence of god and meaning of religion . All beautifully written. This one will stay with me.

The House of Dead Maids | Clare B. Dunkle

Today's #AllHallowsRead -photobombed by Trixie. A scary book that deserves more recognition imo
The child who will become Heathcliff is already a savage creature when Tabby arrives to be his nursemaid , but even more the ghost of the last maid will not leave her in peace, and her spirit is only one of many... A short delicious, creepy prequel to Wuthering Heights that will give you a whole new outlook on Heathcliff! I adore it. 👻👻👻

Nice creepy story. If you've played the games you're probably already familiar with the story - so in some ways it's better if you're a newbie! It's published by scholastic and marketed towards teens and tweens - but you're mileage may vary on appropriateness. My 9 year old LOVES it - but there is murder and mayhem - including murder of children and although not really graphic , a few scenes are disturbing.
