I loved this audiobook 💙💙
I finished this early for our #LittensLoveRomance buddy read so I‘m not giving anything away. It was my favorite read/listen of last week. Such a great cast of characters.

Not my favorite by Miranda but it was a good roadtrip listen. This has been on my shelf for a long time so I put it on my #Roll100 list this year and chose it for April‘s #ReadOrDonate book. Another space cleared on my bookcase.

Thank you for the tag, @Eggs 🌻

🌻 My parents. They loved unconditionally and were present. I knew they always had my back but let me be me and make my own decisions and choices. They still do.
🌻🌻 My husband and my two children along with my parents.

Another #readyourebooks off my TBR! I was in the right frame of mind to read this and enjoyed it. I seem to be in a fluffier place as I‘m working to get back to my everyday life and tasks. I‘m pushing myself with physical therapy and then enjoying some laid back reading.

Returning to Eternity Springs makes me happy. I absolutely adore this series. Complex, imperfect, REAL characters and gorgeous settings.

I love the magical worlds of Harry Potter & Keeper of the Lost Cities. Eternity Springs is magical in a different but equally wonderful way.
