🐋 I‘m still reading and loving Fluke, which means I didn‘t meet my first goal, to finish before seeing Christopher Moore tonight. I‘m on p. 173/321. My new goal is to finish by Sunday.
🐿 The author was hilarious, and it felt good to laugh with a group of people again. Can‘t wait to read Razzmatazz!
📸 The event description said No posed photos, so hopefully this doesn‘t go viral. 😂

1️⃣ No, but whenever I read Haruki Murakami I have weird dreams.
2️⃣ It‘s probably a tie between To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby, and the Harry Potter books.
3️⃣ My priorities for May are to finish the school year strong, and make time for crafting self-care.

Mehso-so

I met one of my #20in4 #Readathon goals yesterday…finishing the last 5 chapters of this book.
🐎 Judging by the cover & the description on the back of this book, I thought it would be the story of a woman & her horse in a strange land, but it was a war story in a strange land.
I really didn‘t get the sense that there was a main character. The woman & horse on the cover were barely in it. It was ok, but I will not be reading the sequel.
🌳🌳🌳

TheSpineView That's a bummer because I love horse stories! 2mo

They were reading this for the A Beautiful Mess Book Club, and it was $7 on Amazon so I decided to give this YA murder mystery a try.
I‘m so glad I did. The main character, Pip, decides to re-examine a friend‘s murder-suicide for a high school senior project. It was a vg mystery with a very likable unlikely sleuth. Will continue series.

Read if you like coming-of-age, cold case, or young romance stories with Hermione-type characters.

I still haven‘t decided which of these I‘ll read so they all got in the picture. I didn‘t mean to get all their hopes up. Lol. Any recommendations?

Time for my #20in4 #Readathon update!

I‘ve read for 3 hours 36 minutes so far, getting 98/200 pages done toward my goal.

Loved the double connection - I just finished watching season 4 of Ozark, and Jason Bateman plays the main character in both Ozark and The Outsider (which I‘ll watch when I finish).

Thanks again for hosting @Andrew65 ! 🙌

Andrew65 Doing great 👏👏👏 4mo
