Okay, not book related. I‘m listening to the tagged while working my mini farm though! We are having 3 ducks for thanksgiving this year. These are the untouchables! Left to right: Speedy, Not Dinner (who almost was 😱),Lucky (who also almost was), Nelly, and Plucky. 💛

I had to stop reading this because of all the times it made me cringe. The children in the foster system have a lot on their plates. That pain is very real, and how they deal with it can many times not be in healthy ways. I‘m not saying this is a good or bad book. I‘m just saying I personally can‘t read anymore because of the depressing material within it. This is for #YABuddyReads and #BookSpinBingo in November

Ruthiella I have never read this one because I know I couldn‘t take it. It‘s OK to know your boundaries. 7d
TheBookHippie @Ruthiella I bailed on that book—I couldn‘t do it. 7d

4✨ This is a historic event I remember hearing about, but lost in my memory. I really liked the storyline all be it pretty sad. A group of various individuals find themselves traveling together to escape the war. Some make it out, and the others sadly do not.

5✨ I love this series. It has more depth than just a kids comic book. This one has elements of Charles Dickens “Tale of Two Cities” and Million Dollar Man references. We have a new cloned character and an improvement to a previous villain.

3✨ I‘m not sure what to say on this one. It was nothing I read before. My family is from Ohio so I‘m familiar with Amish culture, but like Bailey I still have a lot to learn. There was a lot of people with motives so it kept me on my toes. I did not end up figuring out who did if. However, the ending was very good getting to the ending had hard emotions to battle through. Overall, I‘m interested in continuing the series. #LMPBC #GroupM

Jerdencon Looking forward to this! 1w

2✨ Okay I am not the biggest fan of Jessica. She started dating a player who she was madly in love with. Changing herself to suit him was uncharacteristic of her as a character. Then she continues to use others. Still going to keep reading because I like Elizabeth.

5✨This was one of my most anticipated this month, and it did not disappoint! The mystery was solid and well thought out. I was dancing around a few potentials and there was reason the non-killers were shady too! Dude! So glad I was able to binge read this today. 🤩🥰💛 #onceuponabookclub

3✨ What the heck?! I could not put this down because I needed to know what happened. This was set with a reverse timeline with a ten year time jump as well throughout. Along with 2 missing girls. When I got to the end I was trying to process what happened still. It was clearly spelled out by that time, but wow.

2✨ The first chapter was hard to read. After that it had sprinklings of sexuality that I felt wasn‘t needed at all. Like we could say she was maturing without what was stated. The story was pretty good, and I wanted Beth to get a real win. I just had a hard time liking this book as a whole. The series follows the book really well so I didn‘t see much more depth that I was hoping to find.

3✨ I don‘t completely understand why there was the secret. This is why I didn‘t rate it higher. This is the type of story that needs to be told. Sometimes it seems that history is being erased because it offends someone. In reality it should offend you because it was wrong and that‘s why change was sought. I think I heard about the horrid injustice before, but didn‘t remember until it was explained in this book. Read for #MGBuddyReads @megnews

4✨ I am sad this is over. I had so much fun in the world Glass created. The characters find peace as their stories end. Many of the stories concluded with relatively happy ends. The battles throughout the story prove deadly for a few. Excited to talk about it more with friends.

Thank you for the tag @wanderinglynn 1.) I‘m reading/audio booking the tagged book as well as physically reading “Winter in Ireland” for one of my LMPBC groups. 2.) I like Goodreads and I also have a photo journal to keep track of the series‘ I‘m reading. 3.) Well, I normally don‘t Google books, but on Amazon I checked out Star Trek “River of Blood” Please tag yourself if you want to play. 🥰

wanderinglynn Ooh, a photo journal for tracking series sounds neat. 3w

2✨ Well, not my favorite beauty and the beast retelling. This version gives us the princes perspective. I wish the prince/beast was given a name like the book before this one did. It showed more of the transformation of the prince as he became the beast we see. The story felt forced and was pretty uninteresting. It had some twisty parts of how the beast was pretty much losing his mind, but it didn‘t talk about that much it was just there.

So I reallly wanted to read the next Dogman since I put in on my #bookspin and #bookspinbingo list twice so I‘ll pick a random romance that‘s been collecting dust. I‘m going to try to finish one more book before the end of tomorrow so hopefully something else will go there. @TheAromaofBooks

5✨ Such a funny series! It has “Flip-o-Rama‘s” that my partner chuckled at me while seeing me reading. The animation is simple, the story wording is childlike, and I just love that it incorporated other stories and child games such as: Flat Stanley and Rock,Paper, Scissors. Plus it‘s so SHINY! Read for #roaringwolf (Just for Fun) Green on the cover. Plus I got a bingo with this one. #bookspinbingo

4✨ The biggest challenge in writing a review for a beast of a book is where to start. There is 3 books in this 1000+ page read. The first is set to talk about a super flu that wipes out just about everyone. Some characters are in the story long enough for King to state: “No great loss.” I mean wow to be written in just to get that brush off? In book 2 we see there is two sides the God side and the Flagg side who is basically the dark one.⬇️

Roary47 We follow the God side more in this book and then book 3 switches to the Flagg side with our spies and all the twisty characters we met in the first two books. The conclusion was a blast and the last chapter kept you wondering what the heck? 1mo

5✨By far my favorite in the series so far! I laughed out loud so many times I lost count. Greg and his family go on a road trip… mom‘s idea of course. Naturally, pretty much everything goes wrong. It reminded me of The National Lampoon Vacations. Hilarious! Read in one day for wolf frenzy (just for fun) #roaringwolf @Littlewolf1

3✨ I really enjoyed the fairy gardens mentioned. There was a lot of potentials for the killer so it kept me guessing. I was not a fan of the dialogue throughout the book. The whimsy of the plot was what kept me going since I wasn‘t invested in the characters. If they continue the series I‘m not going to continue. Here is the fairy garden I made while I was listening. 🥰💛

3✨This is the end of this comic series and man… I don‘t know what to say. It wasn‘t a bad ending. It was just really strange. While it made sense because it explained what happened it didn‘t feel like a good ending in my eyes. Oh well, still a good series. 😊

Hey Group F. I‘m really excited about this and as I mentioned I‘m not normally a romance reader, but I had 2 of these in my TBR (one I own) and the other two I‘m pretty excited to read too! Warning that Winter in Ireland is book 5, but they do not appear to be linked. Please double check before selecting it. @Littlewolf1 @suvata @DGRachel @BethM

4✨ Another really good book this month! Dee had the tragic experience of watching her best friend Sibby abducted and was almost taken herself. Ten years later she is hosting a podcast to find people that went missing, but hides behind a voice modifier and code name. When she gets a tip about Sibby things get intense. I felt while this was really good it wasn‘t that realistic in situations and outcomes. Still made a great story though! #YABuddyRead
