🦃 Dorothy Dunnett (always), Rosamund Picher (I‘m re-reading), Taylor Jenkins Reid (a current auto buy)
🦃 I can think of so many! Many from Harry Potter, so I guess I‘ll go with Nearly Headless Nick (although Moaning Myrtle and Luna Lovegood were right up there.)
🦃 Tagged book
Wishing a very Happy Thanksgiving to you, @Eggs and to all the Littens!

Eggs Thank you Leslie! And thanks for playing 🥰 4d

What a gem! Loved the two timelines. Always love an old Hollywood story. I must confess that I‘ve never read the book The Wizard of Oz.

Great #BookSpinBingo month for me! My goal was to tackle some of my #BOTM and #ShelfSubscription and I read 6 BOTM and 2 shelf subscriptions. Got in one nonfiction (my goal is at least one a month) and a couple library books. I read both my #BookSpin and #DoubleSpin and got a bingo! I loved or liked all of them. Not a dud in the bunch. My favs of the month were Last Summer at TheGolden Hotel, Florence Adler Swims Forever, 56 Days. #OctoberStats

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! Fabulous month!!! 2mo
