Book haul from gift cards and just spoiling myself for my birthday. 🥰 The tagged in one I‘m really looking forward to. Skandar and the unicorn thief came with an enamel pin! 😍The 10th Kingdom is from that mini series in the late 90s so I‘m pretty excited about it too! 😍💛🥰 Happy reading everyone!

3✨ After the incident from the last book we learn more about their new mission. We add more characters to the list who both at first are not ideal. Then they make a discovery that helps to comfort them in their zombie apocalypse.

3✨ This was a hard one to read. I was not in the right mindset to read it, but appreciated all I learned about Afghanistan. Not knowing a lot about the country made it a challenging read and the content was hard emotionally to get through.

Roary47 This is my #Bookspin for May @TheAromaofBooks and it is the @foodandlit read for Afghanistan 🇦🇫 @Butterfinger @Texreader @Catsandbooks 6d
Butterfinger I couldn't read it a second time. The memory is still raw. 6d
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 5d
Catsandbooks I'm not super far into it yet, but I knew it was gonna be a tough one. It's been on my TBR for so long though. Glad you made it through! 5d

The Cousins | Karen M. Mcmanus

4✨ I finished this on Friday, but had a really rocky week. I really like McManus‘ writing and have enjoyed all the books I‘ve read from her so far. This one was about three cousins visiting their grandmother for the very first time. Their parents were disinherited which is the main mystery of this story. As the cousins uncover the truth they become fast friends. I wasn‘t a fan of the ending, but it was realistic.

LiteraryinLawrence Hope the rockiness smooths out. 💗 6d

3✨ Follows the first book pretty closely in Lindy‘s perspective. It is written in diary format which I‘m always a fan of. B there was a bit of new content, but not much. With this I was able to successfully finish the books I had started in the month of April to give me a clean slate. Yay!

The #Roaringwolf Challenge prompts are here. Motivation coming from my birthday this coming month. Yay! As a reminder read books that fill one of the prompts and let us know by tagging myself and @Littlewolf1 to be added to our monthly drawing. Have fun and happy reading!

Ruthiella Yay! I‘m going to try to hit at least two of the prompts in May! 😃 2w

5✨As always Dog Man is my fun silly read of the month. I‘m almost done with the series so I‘m going to have to find something else soon! In this book motivation came from 1 Corinthians 13:11, a quote from Oscar Wilde, Frosty the snowman, and The Star Thrower. More good guys were added to the family.

4✨ For me this book didn‘t start out interesting. There was a lot of cursing and seemed like everyone was upset with everyone else. Our two mains Theo and Sydney become fast friends. Then strange stuff started happening. At first it seemed like it was racism with a mix of rich vs poor causing a bunch of people to leave their homes. Then after Sydney and Theo made some really big confessions it all went down. Whoa!

3✨The last book of this series had me laughing like all Riordan books. It was really just a meh for me. Without getting into too much detail. Magnus must help his friends take down the villain of the story. It has an open ended conclusion to tie in the next series. Read for #roaringwolf History (There is a deaf character) it is also my #DoubleBookSpin for April @Littlewolf1 @TheAromaofBooks 🎧

Roary47 It‘s a fun one I‘ve had sense jr high, but never finished the series. Goodreads doesn‘t recognize it as a series for some reason so let me know if you need help with knowing what all 6 are. 3w

4✨Based on Irish folk tales and stories about fairies from other locations. Mollie is the big sister of baby Thomas. He is a delightful baby, but in order to protect him from being taken by the Kinde Folk they pretend he is horrible. Being selfish as only kids can be she breaks this rule and takes the necklace from off his neck. Sure enough Thomas is taken and swapped with a changing. The changing is a miserable creature. ⬇️

Roary47 After a year Mollie sets off to the dark lands to find her brother. The biggest problem with this book is it repeats itself a lot, and Mollie seems to never learn. Everything else about this book was a fun read. Read as my second #roll100 for April @PuddleJumper (edited) 3w

4✨ I read this in almost one sitting. It was a really cute rom-com set at Christmas time. Most of the time we are at a book store which I completely enjoyed. There was quite a bit of characters, working in different locations as well that was hard at first to keep track of. Other than that I just smiled through the whole read. Read for #YABuddyRead @megnews

3✨ Packed with adventure once Jason slips into another world. He finds that no one wants to be a hero because of Maldor. The only way to defeat him is thought to be a word. There are hidden syllables everywhere. Protected by others that have to remain to protect the word collectively. He meets friends along the way, but you never really know who‘s working for Maldor. ⬇️

Roary47 It was written very well, funny, and very unique. I had trouble picturing some of the very unique creatures and following the world building because of its uniqueness. Read for one of April‘s #roll100 @PuddleJumper 3w

3✨The second book in the series did pretty well. Events in the first book caused two characters to be connected. This got pretty repetitive as the story went on. However, a game/ event similar to gladiators caused a lot of drama all around. Magic was learned and used in this battle game, and it made the story more exciting.

4✨ While this took me a long time time to read (Almost 2 months) I loved it! Where it got be stuck was the middle part when Kyle was in despair and so depressed it was a woe as me fest. Then Lindy came into the picture and there was hope. There was tie ins to other fairy tales in a chat room ran by Mr. Anderson.⬇️

Roary47 Those would be fun to visit using the same chat messages as we go. I wanted to know what happened to them as well. While our witch that cast the spell appears to be in the rest of this series it does not seem like it‘s the characters in the chat. This was my #BookSpin for April and I‘m counting it for “Weather” for #roaringwolf while it was 2 years worth of information it had Springtime vibes with his roses. 1mo

4✨ I went into this book knowing I would have the feels. The great grandsons of J.R.R. Tolkien have had many adventures together. As brothers they were really close, and when the younger brother, Mike, passes away from Motor Neuron Disease it is up to our author Royd to complete his bucket list.

Roary47 Filled with memories, an insight into MND, and moving forward. It was really heartfelt and at times could be very funny. My only complaint was jumping around on the timeline so much. Had to picture my Lord of the Rings Build a Bears of course!

3✨Not a favorite in the series, but so happy she found more family and they built on that relationship in this month. Also glad that a few things were able to be resolved so other things can be explored. This one did do some repeating and typos were in this as well. I have 3 more months to go! 😍😭 I don‘t really want it to end. I really like these characters.

4✨ Being the second book in the series I cannot say much, but this married couple is not perfect. They are doing better at their family business of dispatching zombies. They meet some new people and are given some hope. When they don‘t agree on a situation they split ways, but only long enough for some major intense action that leads to a new goal. Looking forward to the next one!

4✨ This is hard to track down, but can be found as a Barnes and Noble exclusive. I found it online after I was struggling to find it anywhere else. It takes place 6 years after the last book, and it is warm and fuzzy. I‘m glad I was able to find it, but would have be nice if it was actually at the end of The Crown. Going to use this for “Pastel” on the #roaringwolf Challenge @Littlewolf1 (Just for fun)

5✨ I could not put this down. I‘m not normally one that likes love can conquer all stories, but this Groundhog Day style love story was amazing. Not only was he reliving his love story, but the love for family and friends too. It was easy to follow. Each loop was different enough to keep you interested. Read for my hometown book club.
