Went to the museum of the American revolution today here in Philly with my 14 yr old and 7 year old(it was his idea he was asking question and I said we can go to the museum. He said sure. I was surprised and thought he wouldn‘t like it but he loved it , anyways in the shop the sales lady recommended this book I‘m currently reading Hamilton and it‘s a chunkier so I thought why not read this one

Why I found this among two other books I had hidden from hubby on the dresser behind the tv.. forget that I bought it, sometimes I put things places and forget about it till I go organizing stuff.. must have been meant for me to find it and have it as my first read of the year, but o do remember why I bought it while I was in target, it was the cover that caught my eye.

Curse and Consequence | Savannah Jezowski

Well I did not get to finish reading this at all this weekend I got called into work.. ain‘t that lovely.. I wasn‘t feeling this book anyway so maybe it‘s a sign, so my 20 hours was a bust but if you count the book before this that I read then I did 20 chapters and I‘ll call that a win #20 in 4

Dark Witch | Nora Roberts

I may have to reread this one, I don‘t know why but I feel like reading the vibe this book gives off, I never really looked but does she have other series similar to this one? Or any other series from other authors similar to this one .. to me this book was very atmospheric old world and that‘s what I‘m in the mood for I guess..

ValerieAndBooks My mom is a big fan. I think Nora Roberts also writes mysteries under a different pen name. 1y

Daisy Jones and The Six | Taylor Jenkins Reid
Pickpick

I kinda got in to a slum dead in the middle of the book, I felt like it‘s not going anywhere it‘s becoming kinda repetitive but what I didn‘t realize was that‘s the point she needed to hit rock bottom and maybe have someone tell her cut the crap I know your better then this and in my opinion that‘s what Camilla did. She knew how daisy felt about billy she knew and she laid it out for her. And daisy respected that.

blurb

Daisy Jones & The Six | Taylor Jenkins Reid

I didn‘t think I was gonna like this one boy was I wrong I feel bad for daisy I think all she wants is someone to care about her wants and the drugs and stuff started as a way for her to fit in but it got to a point where it became her. I think the person she shows to others the tough as nails take no shit getting high and all that is also a protective shell. She can‘t get hurt if she doesn‘t feel things since most of the time she is high

Something in the Water: A Novel | Catherine Steadman

I read it because I needed to know the ending but it was so slow, although we know what happened to her husband I didn‘t see it happening in that way so the ending made up for the slow build in the story

I can knit and crochet. I‘m learning embroidery so why not learn to spin.. I bought this one to start and a nicer one spindle for when I‘m better, both came today. Hubby said umm 2 I said yeah your work us as only as good as your tools.

julesG Good luck! Spinning is rather soothing, once you get the hang of it. And I agree, your work is only as good as your tools. Learned that the hard way. 😉 2y

So as cleaned out my books of anything I knew I really was never going to read I found this one I found in the used book store a while back so I figured het light a candle sit at my kitchen table while everyone is upstairs for the night and read by said candle light play some rain ASMR on YouTube on the tablet and relax.. well I‘m definitely have the right mood going so much so I kinda blanked out and forgot I was in my kitchen. Back to reading

Well it‘s a page turner finished it in one day. I thought I knew the who and the why then I started thinking nope it‘s some one else then when the reveal came I was totally wrong but there where hints in the beginning that maybe I should have picked up on but just thought it was back story

blurb

Ok so I follow a YouTube called Kayla or if you follow her BooksandLaLa. We have similar tastes in mystery thriller so whenever I‘m stumped or feeling like I‘m going into a reading slump I go and look at her list on good reads and pick a book this one has been on my TBR for a while.. let‘s see if I like it.. so far I have like most books I have picked and found a few new authors I like that I didn‘t think I would

Help! I have fallen into a reading slump, instead I‘m watching Midsomer Murders on Amazon..

Have you ever received a book from a publisher but that you were excited to read but when you tried it just didn‘t seem like the right time, this is what happened to me I received this as an arc from a bookish first contest that I won when I received it I tried to read it but I couldn‘t get into it.. finally picked it up 2 weekends ago and dived in and it was the right time.. I loved it. But I knew I would!
