Crossroads: A Novel | Jonathan Franzen
post image

Reading tagged book on Nelligan - one of my favorite places to read - paddleboat, some loons nearby, hearing voices travel across the lake of people swimming and enjoying the beautiful weather, seeing the girls play in the water with Miss Harper (I swear she's not a golden retriever - she keeps leaving the water and they coax her back in, oh puppy)...

Summerland: A Novel | Elin Hilderbrand
post image

I. Not really, but I do have a favorite summer reading spot, either floating on the lake or sitting on the pier.
II. Heading to DC with @JenReadsAlot - and lots of cabin time on the lake.
III. Grateful for being able to work from home today and spend time with my dog so she's not home alone all day 🐾🐾

Mad Honey | Jodi Picoult, Jennifer Finney Boylan

Finally read tagged book (signed copy from author event in 2022 - yes, I'm that behind) and it was so good - I learned so much about not only beekeeping but gender... Don't want to say much more as it may give away the premise of the book - if you haven't read, I encourage you to do so with an open mind and heart. Read on littens 🫠 The other books pictured I have read for #52bookchallenge 2024 📚

Read4life I read it this month and loved it! 2mo

A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara

Finally finished tagged book in April - still sitting with this one on my heart - #readyourkindle challenge... Updates on challenge include Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine and Burning Bright (Peter Ash series).

Locked Door | Freida McFadden

For those littens who haven't read Freida McFadden, I started "reading" her audiobooks in March, and I haven't been disappointed. So far, I've read the tagged book, The Perfect Son, and Do Not Disturb. Recommend if you're up for some fast-paced thriller-esque-type reads. I also read #thehousemaid on my Kindle (which wasn't part of the #readyourkindle challenge) but is included in my goal to read more Kindle books. Happy Fri-YAY!!

Now to figure out where these might fit in my 52 Book Challenge... Think I'll start with tagged book 🤔

CBee Little Fires is so good! So is Eleanor O. Loved both! 5mo
KLyn1 @CBee - it was a difficult choice - both have over a million reads... I figured I couldn't lose with either of them 😊 5mo
Crazeedi Stella Fortuna is one of my all time faves 5mo

Who doesn't like prizes (surprises) - in stepping up my reading game for 2024 I thought this "book" of prizes with reading related prompts/challenges would be fun. I listened to a reading themed podcast and this button was the prize?And I couldn't agree more - the book has 100% been better ?
